Tips To Prevent Knee Injuries!

Tips To Prevent Knee Injuries!

The knee is a very important joint of your body as it takes the majority of the body weight when you are standing up, walking or running. However, there may be many things you do daily which have been slowly reducing the capacity of your knees or damaging them. Some of the tips mentioned below reduce the unnecessary stress on your knees and prevent knee pain.

  1. Get the correct shoes and change them regularly: The shoes that you wear regularly determine your posture and thus how well your weight is distributed. If you have the wrong shoes or they have been worn out or have uneven soles after prolonged use, then the resulting imbalance could hurt your knees and cause problems.
  2. Wear protection: You could face serious down time or limitations in movement, if you don’t protect your knees while playing amateur sports or even during recreational sporting activities. Wear knee protection at all times if you think there is a risk of injury.
  3. Stretch before exercising: Always ensure your joints, especially your knee is warmed up so that it can take the impact shocks of exercises such as lifting weights or running. This will also help warm up your muscles and ensure an efficient, injury free work out.
  4. Lose weight: Excess weight over a prolonged period will make your knees weaker. Thus it is important to lose weight, without putting too much stress on the knees first so as to give them time to recover. Once your knees can take your weight without pain, you can go for heavier forms of exercise to enable even further weight loss.
  5. Swimming or walking: When running or heavy lifting seems to be taking a toll on your knees, then you can try to go for swimming and walking which will still be a good work outs without being too taxing on the knees.
  6. Try physical therapy or massages: You can take care of your knees with the help of massages and physical therapy. An injured tendon or cartilage tends to get injured regularly that can be corrected through physical therapy, yoga and massages.

I am 35 years old working as a physics teacher in a school. I have met with accident for last 6 years ago and my three bones of legs are fractured so, doctors of gandhi hospital has inserted three rods in my 2 thigh and one in right legh. Now I want the rods to be removed from my legs. So please tell me whether can I have a surgery to remove rods or else let the rods to be in the legs, but am getting pain at the point of screw inserted not at the fracture. Can you please suggest me what I should do. Is any harm in future. And when I should rods to remove? please guide me in right way so as to get red of the problem.

I have severe joint pain and I am already under medication but can you please tell me some remedies for pain reductions.

I have severe joint pain and I am already under medication but can you please tell me some remedies for pain reductions.
Medicines will help you to get relief from the pain temporarily. In the long run you need to do therapeutic exercises for the particular joint to maintain mobility. Also you need to reduce weight so that joint is not overloaded and avoid pain. Go for the right approach to loose weight, follow a healthy balanced diet, and do exercises suitable for your body type (avoid aerobics, zumba, high intensity cardio) initially, once you loose 15-20 kgs weight, then you can go for zumba or aerobics. To start with do power yoga, strength training, cardio etc. But not to forget diet plays a major role in loosing weight!

Some diseases are hard to cure by default. But we have get some good result in by ayurveda. We generally prefer panchakarma in such cases. I advise you to do virechana (medicated purgation) n basti (ayurvedic medicated anema course). Only they can help you. After panchakarma starts ayurveda medicine. You can easily get information about basti n virechana. Basti is main treatment of asthi dhatu (diseases of bones)

Pain- free Arthritis? Here’s How To Make It Happen!

Pain- free Arthritis? Here’s How To Make It Happen!
Natural Ways To Manage Arthritis

You might be aware that there is no way that you can prevent arthritis to happen except for being car. But what you can do is delay and reduce the risk of its potential onset. If your joints are healthy now, there is no guarantee that they will always be, unless, you take good care.

Do you know a few kinds of arthritis can be modified. They are:

1. Gout - Have a healthy, balanced diet which is low in cholesterol, alcohol and sugar. This will help you fight against the onset of gout.

2. Osteoarthritis - To modify the risk factor of osteoarthritis, it is important to maintain a healthy weight.

How to defeat arthritis?

1. Keep a check on your weight: If you are obese, you are putting more pressure on your joints and as a result, they wear out soon. By losing weight, you can make a lot of difference in your joint health.

2. Ensure good water intake: Our body is 70% water. And water is one of those things which is the most important for us. Staying hydrated is very important, even for your joints. Because when the body is dehydrated, and the body needs water, it uses the water stored in our bodies, incl the water in the cartilage.

3. Try to avoid any injury: No one really wants to get injured but it is important to be careful and cautious against injuries of any kind. The more injured your joints are, the more susceptible they are to wear and tear now, and arthritis later in life.

4. Don’t stress with physical tasks: There is a way and correct posture to do them, but many people ignore those and perform the tasks clumsily. This puts additional pressure on your joints.

5. Get Your share of Vitamin D: Vitamin D is very important for us. If your body has adequate amount of vitamin D, then you are less susceptible to arthritis. It is wise to get the levels tested and if low, a doctor consulted for proper medication.
