You are just 19. Acl tear causes instability of knee joint. It leads to many problems like difficulties in running, sports etc. It may also lead to meniscus tear. If its partial tear, then physiotherapy may help. If its complete tear, then it can not heal on its own.

Please give her Naturamore Female powder with Warm water daily in morning and evening. This will definitely give her relief. And ask her to apply ice-pack over it for 5 mins daily 2-3 times in a day. Take care. :)

Dear lybrate-user, chances of good results with knee replacement depend upon x ray picture, stage of disease, implant used and experience of surgeon in performing knee replacement. She should do fine with good quality implants though it will be costly affair. There are implants which can last for 25 years or more. You should go ahead with knee replacement.

What is it exactly lumbar spondylitis/disc prolapse etc? And also whats your age.How did it start? Have you taken physiotherapy treatment for this? If its due to degenerative changes then you will have this problem but it can be kept under control by taking proper precautions and exercising regulary to strengthen your back muscles. After proper evaluation by the therapist exercises will be taught.

Hi lybrate-user It depends on the age. People will be treated. If you’re in the ripe age, need replacement might be choice. People advice as a permanent solution for your pain. Degenerate ACL always associates with knee arthritis changes too. Need to see orrho surgeon for further evaluation.

Did you have any injury? What kind of work do you do. There are many queries which need to be answered before telling a treatment. I would suggest you to visit some specialist and get thorough examination done. Then it would be easier to treat you. Neck sound is because of osteophytes most probably. Might not need any treatment if there is no pain or weakness of upper limbs. Regarding Osteoarthritis of knees, treatment depends upon clinical examination. It varies from different exercises, some medicines, or injections in knee to may be Partial joint replacement or Total knee replacement. Joint saving surgery to joint replacement surgery. Many options are available. Everything depends upon your complaints, clinical examination and x Ray findings. I'm Dr Prashant Parate. Shoulder and Knee specialist. You can visit me in OPD too.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.
