Ayurvedic Treatment of Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (DISH) Disease

DIFFUSE IDIOPATHIC SKELETAL HYPEROSTOSIS (DISH): OVERVIEW

diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis, DISH

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) -- also called Forestier’s disease -- is considered to be a form of Osteoarthritis or degenerative arthritis. The condition can be potentially progressive.

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis is a condition which implies a bony hardening (calcification) of ligaments at the points at which they are attached to the spine. In other words, one of the main characteristics of this condition is the unique, flowing calcification along the sides of the proximate vertebrae of the spine.

Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis is generally linked to tendinitis (inflammation) and calcification of tendons at the point of their attachment to the bone. As a result, the condition can often be a causative factor behind the formation of bone spurs (like heel spurs) in the individuals affected by it.

The exact cause behind the occurrence of Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis is not known. Nonetheless, the condition is commonly associated with the metabolic syndrome; and it occurs more frequently in individuals suffering from diabetes mellitus, obesity and other health conditions which may raise insulin levels in the body.

The risk of developing the condition is typically higher for men as compared to women. Moreover, the condition usually affects older adults, particularly those above 50 years of age; and is also associated with long-term use of certain medications termed as retinoids.

SYMPTOMS OF DIFFUSE IDIOPATHIC SKELETAL HYPEROSTOSIS

Some of the common indications of Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis are:

  • Sporadic pain in the areas of the bony changes of the spine
  • Stiffness in upper back, especially in the morning
  • Mild to moderate pain in the back
  • Pain in other affected parts, including elbows, shoulders, knees or heels
  • Inflammation of tendons
  • Loss of range of motion / difficulty in using the affected joint
  • Hoarseness of voice
  • Difficulty in swallowing.

TREATMENT OF DIFFUSE IDIOPATHIC SKELETAL HYPEROSTOSIS

The standard treatment for Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis involves the use of anti-inflammatory medications because the condition typically leads to the inflammation of the areas of the spine and tendons.
