Tendonitis treatment in Ayurveda

Ayurvedic medicine recognizes that all disease is the result of doshic imbalance. Therefore, all diseases are classified first by dosha that is implicated in the disorder (Roga) and then by the dosha that has caused the disorder (dosha + ja). In Ayurveda disorders of the tendons are considered to be related to Rakta Dhatu which is managed by Pitta Dosha. Normally any problem with the tendons causes an aggravation of Pitta; hence disorders of the tendons are classified as Pitta Roga. This classification includes a number of modern disorders to the tendons and sometimes even ligaments or muscles.

If Vata or Kapha is the cause of the disorder then it will be of a non-inflammatory nature. If Pitta is the cause then it will be inflammatory in nature. Repetitive action disorders to the tendons can be due to either Vata or Pitta, so they can be either inflammatory or non-inflammatory depending on the causal dosha.
