Sandhi Shool /joint pain is becoming a very common problem in current mechanical era.There are many disorders explained in Ayurved dealing with joint-pain. There is a major confusion between the correlation of Aamvaat with modern joint disorder. It is confused with Rheumatoid Arthritis.It is very important to correlate as the treatment and ultimately prognosis of the disease can be judged.But when we study the pathophysiology of both Rheumatic fever and Rheumatoid arthritis, Aamvaat can very clearly be related with Rheumatic fever.
