Sandhivata is one among the vatavyadhi and the commonest joint disorder affecting middle aged and elderly population. Acharya Charaka defined it as a disease with the symptoms as shotha, pain on flexion and extension. Sandhivata is accepted by Chakrapani as „Gulpha vata‟ or „Sandhigata vata‟. By observing these symptoms we may compare Sandhigata vata to that of Osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative disorder that occurs when articular cartilage wears down. According to epidemiology the prevalence of osteoarthritis in India is 22-39%. Here an attempt is made to check the efficacy of the folklore medicine vedanasamhari kalpa lepa as upanaha in Sandhigatavata. Vedanasamhari kalpa comprises of following ingredients, Musaber (Aloe vera), Shunti (Zingiber officinale), Haridra (curcuma longa), Shigru (Moringaolefera), Saindhava lavana (rock salt), Ajamoda (Apium graveolans), Katuki (Pichorhiza kurroa), Sambrani (Benzoin resin), Gairika (Fe2O3), Chinca patra swarasa (Tamarind indica). Methodology: Single group clinical study was conducted on a sample size of 25 with sandhigata vata affecting janu sandhi. Vedana Samhari Kalpa lepa was freshly prepared and applied over the affected knee joints of patients for 3hrs once daily for 20 days. Interpretation and Results: After the treatment there was significant relief in the main symptoms janusandhi shoola(pain), janusandhi shotha(oedema), janusandhistabdatha(stiffness). Conclusion: Vedanasamharikalpa lepa showed statistically significant effect on symptoms-jaanusandhi shoola(pain), jaanusandhi shotha(oedema), jaanusandhi stabdhata(stiffness) of sandhigata vata.

Keywords: vedanasamhari kalpa lepa, Sandhigatavata, Osteoarthritis.
