This is most likely due to eating or drinking of some outside food. You have to change little bit of diet. Avoid oily fried food. Avoid salads. Private consult with me for detailed treatment protocol with medicines and dietary instructions.

What To Do After A Muscle Strain Or Ligament Sprain?

What To Do After A Muscle Strain Or Ligament Sprain?

Muscle sprains and ligament tears are one of the most common injuries that medical practitioners encounter on a regular basis. These injuries are painful and can also limit one’s movement, needless to say. However, there are simple things that can be done as soon as the injury happens so that the impact of the injury can be reduced, the symptoms minimised, and recovery improved.

A sprain is a tear of the ligament. The ligament is responsible for connecting the tissue strands that connect the bone to the muscle. When this sprain affects the muscle or even the tendon, it is known as a strain.
Sprains are very common and can occur due to a fall, twist, or impact. Most commonly affected areas are the ankles and wrists. Sprains happen when there is a pull or a twist of the ankle or the joint. This is very common in athletes and can be caused by repetitive motions in the knees, wrists, elbows, etc.

The most common symptom is pain, swelling, limited movement, and sometimes bruising. The degree of these injuries depends on its severity. The most common ways to treat such injuries are as follows.

  1. RICE therapy: RICE is an acronym for rest, ice, compress, and elevate. Rest the affected area immediately by stopping any further activity. Ice the area using an ice wrap, with the ice cubes wrapped in a towel or a cotton cloth. Repeat this exercise if possible for every 20 minutes. This will reduce the swelling and pain. Compress the area using a sling or a wrap. This will help in reducing the swelling. Elevate the affected area if possible above the heart. This will help control the blood flow and thereby reduce the swelling and pain.
  2. Pain control: If there is pain that needs medication, go for the non-steroidal drugs like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If it is a child that is injured, it is advisable to give non-aspirin ones.
  3. Seek professional help: Most sprains can be self-limiting over a couple of days. However, it is advisable to seek medical help if there is significant pain, swelling, or numbness, open wounds or bruises, or inability to move the joint.

The doctor may decide to do the following.

  1. Scanning or imaging to rule out any internal hard/soft tissue injury like fracture or tear
  2. Immobilise the joint with a splint or a cast
  3. Start physical therapy if there is severe pain and immobility
  4. Surgical repair if there is a ligament injury

A word of caution to athletes or people who are very active physically is to go easy on the joint. In an eagerness to quickly get back to their routine, more and severe damage may be caused. This can be avoided by allowing time for complete healing.
 

Knee Replacement - Know Procedure Of It!

Knee Replacement - Know Procedure Of It!

Knee is a hinge joint where the lower leg bone tibia meets the thigh bone femur. During osteoarthritis, cartilage or ligament defects and degenerative arthritis, knee replacement surgery is recommended worldwide to get relief from extreme pain. Knee replacement surgery, also known as knee arthroscopy, is a surgical procedure, in which the affected knee joint is replaced with synthetic material. The most likely candidates for total knee replacement are the patients with severe destruction of the knee joint coupled with progressive pain and impaired function.

Modern technological advances have made computer-assisted knee replacement surgery extremely popular around the globe. In this surgery, the surgeon is assisted by a computer to remove the optimum amount and angle of the bone, which otherwise is done by inspecting manually. This is an excellent example of surgery through a small incision and it eliminates the chances of human error. Perfect alignment and balance are achieved and hence longevity is also increased to 20 - 30 years. Knee replacement surgery is also specific to gender as the anatomy of male and female patients is different.

There are many types of knee replacements, most common being the total knee replacement or Total Knee Arthroplasty. In addition, there is a partial knee replacement, bilateral knee replacement, revision knee replacement and knee arthroscopy.

In knee replacement surgery, the worn out surfaces of joints of the knee are replaced with an artificial implant of plastic and metal. The lower end of the femur bone is removed and replaced with a metal shell. The upper end of the lower leg bone (tibia) is also removed and replaced with a channelled plastic implant with a metal stem. A plastic ball is also added under the kneecap depending on its condition. These artificial components are commonly referred as prosthesis. The design of these highly flexible implants replicates knee, with the rotating knee replacement implants assist in the backward and forward swing of the legs.

Patients whose knee joints have been damaged by either trauma or progressive arthritis should consider total knee replacement surgery. Post-surgical hospital stay after knee joint replacement is usually three to five days. The surgery has a very high success rate and shows dramatic improvement after a month. This improvement is most notable one month or more after surgery. The pain caused by the damaged joint is reduced significantly when the new gliding surface is constructed during surgery. Initially, patient will walk with the help of a walking aid until the knee is able to support full body weight. After six weeks, patient can walk comfortably with minimal assistance. Patients with artificial joints are prescribed to take antibiotics during the course of any elective invasive procedures including dental work. Physiotherapy is an essential part of rehabilitation and it will increase the muscle strength and patient can enjoy most activities, except running and jumping.

Acl ligament is absent in my right leg, adn due to overcompensation, my left leg is having knee problems, relieved by esgipyrin, but only for a few hours.

Knee ligament laxity if you have problem in your legs then it might be due to ligament laxity where your legs would become very weak due to the old ligament injury and that should be treated immediately. Wear knee cap so that you will feel firm while walking or climbing stairs. This is a general strain and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try! one time you can do hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain. You have to do knee strengthening exercises, ie. Knee rehabilitation exercises which will strengthen your knee. Exercises will give you permanent cure than the surgery. Physiotherapy management: you can take ultrasonic therapy in one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics which would help to heal the damaged cartilages along with shortwave diathermy which would help to improve the blood circulation.

I went out yesterday for the whole day, travelled by train at cab in the city. After the whole day at night, I got severe headache towards the back. I slept for 9 hours after that, had lots of water and juices. But, still the pain continues till now. I slept for more 4 hours in the day time. But, no relief. Should I take pain killer now? I usually don't prefer as i'm a bit habitual to headaches due to migraine. Is it because of the scorching heat out here? I just want to know the cause and how to get relief from it.

Dear lybrateuser, - You can take a pain relief tablet like Paracetamol, 500 mg after meals for relief since sleep is not providing relief, can take 2-3 times a day - since you have mentioned that you have headache ( migraine), a trigger like less hydration or low blood sugar due to improper food intake could cause it : a migrainous headache could continue sometimes for a longer period.

Yesterday I was playing volleyball, in between to avoid ball striking over the head of one of my friend, I pulled him towards me, but while pulling, his elbow directly knocked to my right chest very hardly and we both fell down. Since he is also a heavy person, I was hurt badly, it is paining very hard whenever I am having any movement and also at the time of breathing. Is it a serious pain? What should I do to overcome it.

Hello- The stress may be the culprit behind your issue. Think of sex as one giant chemical reaction of neurochemicals and hormones working in unison to provide stimulation and pleasure. The mind releases hormones to power an erection and lubricate the vagina. The body’s neurotransmitters communicate between the brain and organs to prepare and sustain sexual inhibitions, while the mind releases stimulants to keep the body pleased. No sex can be frustrating for both men and women. Fearful or anxious women tend to avoid sex. The key for women is to reduce the anxiety and fear. How? Well, most can find methods to alleviate the stress. Hitting the gym, practicing yoga, punching someone in the face, swimming and reading all provide great stress-reliving activities. Try Sensual Aromatherapy to reduce your nervousness with calming botanical essential oils. Also, the body can benefit from powerful nutrients and many natural ways to ignite your desire again. Stress-alleviating herbs that may prove helpful include Ashwagandha, know to alleviate stress and power your libido, and Sacha inchi, a plant revered for improving serotonin production to improve mood.

I think first of all you should take treatment for abdominal discomfort and hyperacidity. Avoid allopathic medication specially pain killers. Prefer ayurvedic treatment for best results. Avoid tea, coffee, spicy food, rice and curd. Contact for further discussion and treatment.

You may be suffering from colitis. Take precautions and look for any associated symptoms. Repeated infection or repeated abnormal functioning of your stomach may lead to further damage to your intestine. Take proper home made food. Avoid tea coffee spicy and junk food. If needed you may contact for ayurvedic consultation.
