If I run faster then my legs will pain, what to do for without paining I have to travel more distance?
Pain on running fast will cause pain if you are not doing it everyday. Any exertion more than your capacity is going to cause pain. Try to increase your running speed gradually over days. If you need to travel long distance, manage your time so that you do not need to run fast. And for the pain you can do hot compresses, will cause pain relief.

Dear lybrate-user Check if you have been sleeping on uneven bed that causes strain in neck, shoulder abd back. This kind of strain can put pressure on the nerves reaching out to the arms and chest where the pressure must be causing tingling sensation. You have to make sure your overall health improves with the correct kind of foods, some basic ayurvedic tonics and adequate exercise/rest to develop a healthy body. Regards.

Doctor, I have a sharp poking pain in my right knee. My xray report states reduction in joint space osteophytes seen. I also have continuous pain in the neck and my head too hurts sometimes. I have consulted and an orthopedic and he has stated that I should take vissco supplementation. Please help.

MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Indore
Dear patient as you've mentioned that you've got reduction in the joint space and also there are osteophytes seen, this states why you're suffering from pain and discomfort. First of all you have to convince yourself that the treatment is lengthy and mostly active. I would suggest you to do some active self stretching followed by active rom exercises for each joint individually. Though you haven't mentioned anything about the type of work that you do because lifestyle plays a major role in deciding the prognosis of the disease. For quick pain relief you can always trust hot fomentation at home or you can visit nearest physiotherapy clinic. Try sitting in leg suspended position more and more. Though this will induce swelling in the knee but it'll subside once you do limb elevation and ice massage. Wearing the knee caps will also be a great help. Any problems you can always consult me on mail or this website. Hope this helps.

Dear sir I am 25 age old. I have an headache and shoulder pain in every night. Morning time i'm not think about that but night time I can't sleep. Please help to solve this problem.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are many causes for chronic headache and my advise to my patients is to get an opinion from a neurophysician for evaluation and appropriate tests. As far as shoulder pain is concerned, if you have no h/o any injury to your shoulder and there are no s/s of any inflammation or infection like skin redness, swelling, local warmth over skin etc, - you can start with ice packs, anti inflammatory medication, physical therapy, activity modification. Most of the issues will resolve if there is no structural damage to your shoulder, if pain persists after 2-3 weeks, then we will have to get some investigations done in your case. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Know Everything About Knee Replacement

Know Everything About Knee Replacement

Knee replacement surgery — also known as knee arthroplasty (ARTH-row-plas-tee) — can help relieve pain and restore function in severely diseased knee joints. During knee replacement, a surgeon cuts away damaged bone and cartilage from your thighbone, shinbone and kneecap and replaces it with an artificial joint made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics and polymers.

Why is it done?

The most common reason for knee replacement surgery is to relieve severe pain caused by osteoarthritis. People who need knee replacement surgery usually have problems walking, climbing stairs, and getting in and out of chairs. Some also have moderate or severe knee pain at rest.

The Procedure

The procedure begins with you being administered general anesthesia, after which, an incision of 9-12 inches is made on the knee. The part of the joint that has been damaged is gotten rid of, following which the surfaces of the bone are redesigned to hold an artificial joint. Cement is used to attach the artificial joint to the shin, knee cap and the thigh bone. Once the fitting is complete, the artificial joint is supported by the surrounding muscles.

Results

For most people, knee replacement provides pain relief, improved mobility and a better quality of life. Consult a doctor about what you can expect from knee replacement surgery.

Three to six weeks after surgery, you generally can resume most daily activities, such as shopping and light housekeeping. Driving is also possible at around three weeks if you can bend your knee far enough to sit in a car and if you have enough muscle control to operate the brakes and accelerator.

After you've recovered, you can enjoy a variety of low-impact activities, such as walking, swimming, golfing or biking. But you should avoid higher impact activities — such as jogging, skiing, tennis and sports that involve contact or jumping. Talk to your doctor about your limitations.

Aftercare

The duration of the hospital stay is around 2-3 days. The effects of the surgery start becoming noticeable within a month of the surgery being carried out. Initially, you may require walking aids. It takes about 5-6 weeks to regain your ability to walk without any external or physical support.

You will have to undergo physical therapy after the surgery to improve your muscle strength. The physiotherapist may prescribe various exercises to strengthen the muscles around the knees. You need to follow certain precautions after the surgery; squatting and kneeling become certain activities which you should avoid. Avoid activities that places undue stress on the knees.

I am 48 year male, 6 feet tall, 75 kg weight with prortionate build. I am working as hr executive and have a sitting job. For the last one year, I am feeling pricking pain in my right heel. Doctors say there is no medicine for that and it will go away in a couple of years. The pain is acute during mornings and it aggravates when I stand for 3 hours at a stretch. I am using soft cushioning in my shoes. Not using any pain-killers regularly but when my work demands longer standing job, I take a diclofenac or two. Please advise me what to do?

Dear Lybrate user, I'd not advise to quit your job but I'd advise something you should do systematically to get back to pain free life. 1- Consult an Interventional pain specialist or orthopedician trained in spine to rule out any significant problem with your spine ( any chronic pain for more than 2 months is not a symptom but itself a disease of chronic pain, irrespective of underlying disease) 2- Get your Vit D and calcium level checked, if less take supplements or increase it . 3- Take help from specialist about ergonomic/ posture correction at work. 4- Avoid loading your spine by sitting for longer period, you can take intermittent walk or stand in between 5- Take help of Physiotherapist If there is any spasm of muscles at lower back 6- Strengthen Your lumbar paraspinal muscles. These are steps you should take to help yourself from chronic back pain.

I am 23 year old boy. I playing football while my leg ligament is fractured. How can overcome from fracture without operation. Now I can't run. While I am stress my ligament get fractured again.

You must be having a ligament year. At your age, the ligament is necessary for stability of the knee especially when running, jumping, climbing steps and fast walking. I suggest strongly that you take mri of the knee to confirm the torn ligament. If the ligament is torn, undergo ligament reconstruction by keyhole surgery. This will restore stability in your knee and prevent further injuries to your knee joint.
