The movement of the knee joint makes locomotion easy, and the knee joint is in some sense one of the most important joints in the human body. Degeneration, inflammation, and injury are some of the key reasons for knee pain, and JanuBasti can help support these.

Herbal decoction or lukewarm medicated oil is slowly poured into the ring. Oil is squeezed out with cotton gauze when it is cooled down, and the procedure is repeated. The affected area may be gently massaged after the completion of the process. The ring is removed, and the person takes a rest for a short while.
