Hello and greetings from

The surface of knee joint is covered in articular cartilage. When  injure articular cartilage,  may experience pain or swelling and  may have difficulty managing the simplest daily activities, such as climbing stairs.Articular cartilage cannot heal on its own; worse, once the surface is damaged, the injury can possibly continue to slowly deteriorate. Small cartilage injuries can progress to larger cartilage injuries, and, if left untreated, may lead to a more serious knee condition, such as osteoarthritis (OA). The wear and tear, injuries, degenerative changes etc results in narrowing of joint spaces, damage of cartilage and synovial fluids which help in smooth functioning of joint movements.

Shallaki is the herbal medicine which is anti-inflammatory and natural pain killer. It helps to restores the movements by restoring the shape of joint.

For best results give hot fomentation after application of  Arthcare Massage oil in circular movements on and around knee joint.
