I am suffering with insomnia since last ten days, actually my job is a night shift job, so can you please suggest me for good sleep in a day time. Thank you sir/Madam.

Hs. I'll try and outline some general advice to help you improve your sleep habits. The concept is called sleep hygiene. Question 1) what is your height and weight? 2) do you snore? has anyone told you that you do? 3) under normal circumstances, do you sleep continuously through the night? or do you wake up once or more? 4) do you have any difficulties breathing? 5) what would you say is the quality of your sleep? do you wake up every morning feeling refreshed? 6) under normal circumstances. What are your sleep timing like? I see that you work at night? when do you try to sleep? how many hours do you get? 7) can you describe your sleep environment? is it dark? is it quiet? what is the temperature in the room? 8) do you smoke? drink alcohol? or drink energy drinks like redbull to stay awake? 9) do you have any medical conditions for which you are undergoing treatment or have undergone treatment in the last 5 years? 10) do you take any medications or supplements (vitamins etc) on a regular basis? I will leave the questioning there for now lets talk about a concept called" sleep hygiene. Your brain needs sleep to repair and strengthen the various neural pathways that get used during the day. Sleep is actually an active process for the brain. Unlike your muscles and your other organs. Your brain can actually be more active at certain times when you are asleep. My reason for telling you this is that the circumstances under which you try to go to bed are very important. Sleep is controlled by something called the'circadian rhythm, you can think out it as the'sleep cycle. That sleep cycle is controlled by various internal and external influences. One of the most important is light! light controls when we go to sleep and when we wake up to a great extent. So. If you try to fall asleep in a room that is very bright! like a room with the curtains open in the afternoon. Then your brain will be receiving the wrong signals and you will not sleep. The concepts and advice given by the us. National sleep foundation are a good set of guidelines you can use to help improve your sleep hygiene.

Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Hi You need to take physiotherapy for a longer period now since the fracture occurred 6 months back and movements are restricted now. Walking on the plain surface with or without support is easier than climbing steps for patients of knee joint fracture. Homoeopathic treatment along with physiotherapy will be a better treatment at the moment. Kindly consult a good homoeopathic doctor near you for further analysis of your case.

MD MEDICINE

Food does not cause any disease. But you can make your own food dairy about the food which is causing recurrent problem to you. There are many myths about various foods. Which is not realistic. So eat whatever suits you.

Arthritis and Knee Pain - Know Its Physical Therapy Treatment!

Arthritis and Knee Pain - Know Its Physical Therapy Treatment!

Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints. Pain, swelling, and stiffness are the primary symptoms of arthritis. Any joint in the body may be affected by the disease, but it is particularly common in the knee.

Knee arthritis can make it hard to do many everyday activities, such as walking or climbing stairs. It is a major cause of lost work time and a serious disability for many people. There are 2 types of arthritis the knee joint in the human body can get afflicted with. They are:

  • Osteoarthritis: The form of arthritis which, with increasing pain, slowly wears down the joint cartilages is called osteoarthritis. This form of arthritis usually affects people after the age 40. The symptoms of osteoarthritis include:

    • severe pain in the knee joints

    • pain after walking up the stairs and it subsiding once you are on rest

    • severe pain after the movement of joints for a long time

    • pain that becomes worse in rainy days

    • joints becoming stiff after waking up in the morning but they improve in the latter part of the day

    • pain which also occurs in the thighs and the genital regions coupled with joints swelling and joints getting stiff after rest.

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic form of arthritis caused because of the knee joint inflammations. This form of arthritis can occur at any age. Being an auto-immune disease, its symptoms include, but are not limited to:

    • severe pain in the morning

    • mild fever accompanying the pain

    • joints suddenly becoming swollen, red and warm causing, immense pain

    • sudden stiffness of the joints

    • pain that increases in cold weather

    • mild fever, extreme tiredness and weakening of the muscles

Doctors are still doubtful about what exactly causes the disease; but the deformation of the immune system might cause the damage of the joints, causing people who are already suffering from obesity, smokers, and women, in general, more prone to this disease.

When the knee pain is diagnosed as a form of arthritis, the following treatments are suggested:

  1. If you are overweight or obese, losing some of those extra pounds can go a long way in reducing the pain.

  2. Muscle-stretching exercises are effective in keeping the knee joints flexible.

  3. Acupuncture and devices such as knee braces and knee caps can relieve the pain.

  4. Prescribed dosage of anti-inflammatory drugs such as Tylenol, Motrin, and Advil or injections of hyaluronic acid might relieve your pain.

  5. If regular treatments do not work, you might opt for knee-replacement surgery and osteotomy (the process of cutting a bone with the help of surgery) which might better the alignment of the knee by transforming the bone shapes.

Physiotherapy For Knee Arthritis-

Physiotherapy treatment is aimed at improving the symptoms of the disease (i.e. knee pain, swelling, stiffness), and you should begin to notice a positive difference within one or a few physiotherapy sessions.

The main goals of physiotherapy for your knee arthritis are:

  1. Reduce your knee pain and inflammation.
  2. Normalise your knee joint range of motion.
  3. Strengthen your knee: esp quadriceps (esp VMO) and hamstrings.
  4. Strengthen your lower limb: calves, hip and pelvis muscles.
  5. Improve your patellofemoral (knee cap) alignment and function.
  6. Normalise your muscle lengths.
  7. Improve your proprioception, agility and balance.
  8. Improve your technique and function eg walking, squatting. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

Thanks for contacting with your health concern and since she is already under expert supervision, under no circumstances you should stop/taper/add any drug without first consulting your attending physician 1. I usually give my patient (s) the same drug [in capsule form] along with other herbs [with positive results and feedback] which helps alleviate symptoms and provide relief in signs of inflammation. If interested I can courier you the medicine (s)

its been more than 1.5 years now and we could not see much relief for her and her knee and back pains. She was facing this problem since she was 32 but was at minor stage but now its very hard for her to walk and sit in one position for more than 5 to 10 minutes.

Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Simple knee exercises would help to strengthen the quadriceps muscle which is the key muscle. Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping a soft ball underneath the knee and you have to keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. This is a general low back ache 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 which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. Ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. It is suggestible to wear lumbo sacral belt which would help you to build the abdominal muscle tone which itself would make you feel better. You can also wear mcr chappals which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back.
