Hey lybrate-user, as you are having psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis is genetic disorder triggered due to stressful conditions and irregular life style. We are treating psoriasis using ayurvedic medicines. Psoriasis has three stages. First stage is when disease remain on skin and there are scaly patches. Second stage comes when there is pitting on nails and in last stage it enter the joints and there is pain in small joints. Generally patient use steroidal application on patches which give temporary relief and disease reappear after 2/3 days. In severe cases methotrexate is used which is not a safer option and is liver toxic. Ayurveda has got a complete remedy for psoriasis. It is a safer option and can be used for longer duration without any side effects. Ayurvedic external application give very quick results with sun exposure in clearing the scales and internal treatment does not allow the disease to re appear. Psoriasis is a manageable disease and can be managed with ease and effectively using ayurveda. You should use 3 gms of haldi with milk helps in psoriasis patients.

Mri, x-rays and wrist specialist concluded my ganglion is inoperable due to it growing the wrong way and being highly focused in the area of nerve and tendons - i. E they say surgery is too risky. Currently I cannot use the hand for anything that puts any weight on it at all (picking up a kettle.

Hello lybrate user, ganglion is a benign swelling and has distinct borders that are easily separable from normal tissue. It can either arise from a joint or tendon sheath. It usually does not have a tendency to infiltrate nerves out blood vessels. But then again, ganglion is an asymptomatic swelling and should not cause you much problems except for the cosmetic concern. If you are really facing problems with it like pain, restriction from movements, or if very large, you can go in for a surgical excision. We usually also do not advise an mri for a ganglion. But if your doctor has got it done, then there might be some concern in your case. You may get a radiologist to report on it or take another surgeon's opinion. But he will have to look at all your reports and mri pictures as well.

Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. Inform after 10 days for further guidance.

Have osteoarthritis. What should be the treatment. Have bad pain in knee even cant walk.

If the pain is intolerable take pain medicines prescribed by a local doctor. Walk regularly. Maintain a healthy weight. Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Drink plenty of water and fruit juices. Do stretching and strengthening exercises for quads and hamstring muscles around the knee joint. Approach a physiotherapist to help you out with the exercises. When all this do not help opt for total knee replacement.

It might be due to varicose veins inflammation or it might be due to ligament injury in the knee. The conservative management would be to keep ice in that inflamed area during one time in a day and to wear either knee cap or varicose veins stockings.

Answer to this question will depend on your clinical signs and symptoms, your examination, your age, status of your knee. You need proper discussion with expert who deals only in ligament injuries not just orthopedic surgeon. Dr Prashant Parate.

The location of the knee pain can vary depending on which structure is involved. With infection, the whole knee might be swollen and painful, while a torn meniscus or fracture of a bone gives symptoms only in one specific location. The severity of the pain can vary, from a minor ache to a severe and disabling pain. Some of the other findings that accompany knee pain are difficulty walking due to instability of the knee, limping due to discomfort, locking of the knee (unable to bend the knee) so I would like to suggest you to please consult a doctor personally, & get the pain diagnosed to help you to get proper treatment. There is a specific line of treatment in ayurvedic panchkarma & these are practically effective. We have successfully treated many cases of joint pain with the holistic approach of ayurveda & panchkarma. For more details you can contact us.

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.
