My mother is suffering from knee pain from several dayz.
Please tell me which medicine is bst for tht pain.
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.

Well this may be due to collitis. U need proper treatment. Do not take highly spicy food take blunt food. Avoid drinking alcohol, quit smoking. Take ginger juice, alovera juice, plenty of water. With this you need proper homeopathic treatment for this. U can also contact me through Lybrate.

Dear , I am Dr. Saseendar, specialist orthopaedic surgeon from chennai. Where exactly in the knee is your pain? is it on the knee cap in front of your knee? or is it below the knee cap? do you have pain during playing or when you kick a ball or run? I suspect it is a strain on your patella or your patellar tendon. Kindly let me know the details. Since the pain has been there for so long, it is advisable to get x rays for your knee.

I feel painful my knees if I try to stand up after sit for 20 minUtes. What shall I do for this knee pain?

1. Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. 2. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. 3. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. 4. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. 5. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

Before 2 or 3 days. My brother bit me on the upper arm in a playful manner but really hard. From then on. Till now i've been having pain there. I'll feel it only when it comes in contact with something. The skin is totally normal but the pain is on the inside. Yesterday on. The pain extended a little to the right of the arm. But today. The pain is better when compared to before but is still paining. The inside of the pain site seems hard but I don't know whether it's my triceps or something else. Any suggestions on what it is? should I go consult a doctor if the pain persists?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It's actually difficult to comment without examining you but it could be organized hematoma, small abscess, but you can continue with ice packs and gentle anti inflammatory medication, if pain persists or if there is any developing swelling or any s/s of infection like skin redness, local warmth etc, then get yourself checked up by a physician. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Hi if you have localized back pain with - no neurological symptoms like numbness, paresthesia, weakness in limbs etc - go for physical therapy initially under supervision of a physiotherapist and then at home. - avoid forward bending, lifting heavy weights etc - take an analgesic for 5-7 days - ice packs at the site of pain - local analgesic spray can be used but no massage is required let me know in 1 week time. I will actually ask you to get x ray of involved region of spine ( ap & lateral views) blood tests: esr, crp and serum vitamin d levels and send reports across to me so that I can advise further in a better manner. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

First take bed rest. It helps to reduce your pain. Then take regular low back excersices. Surya namaskaram sarvangasanam, salabasanam,dhanurasana are good for LBA. Take gingille oil bath weekly once. It helps to strengthen over all joints.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It is actually important to know the exact level of disc bulge and it's clinical relevance as there may be many patients with disc protrusions on mri but which may not be clinically significant. Also I am sure it is not s3/4 but either c3/4 or l3/4. It will be useful if you can send me the mri images and a brief clinical history so that I can see and advise you accordingly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.
