Your daily habits or age may be the root of your knee problems.

Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Rheumatic arthritis I have now having itching on skins specially private areas are they related.
A type of arthritis that occurs when flexible tissue at the ends of bones wears down. The wearing down of the protective tissue at the ends of bones (cartilage) occurs gradually and worsens over time. Joint pain in the hands, neck, lower back, knees or hips is the most common symptom. Homeopathy helps to slow down the process of joint pain & also gives a long term relief in pain without side effects. Dr. raj bonde.

Grade ii meniscial lesion ofposterior horns of both meniscui. Allopathy doctors advised for surgery. Can you advise me?

Since there is marrow contusion on the mri, it means that the bones are also affected. Best would no to rest your knees and do extensive physios. Use a brace to support the knee in the meanwhile. After 6 weeks of you still have pain or instability in the knees, consider arthroscopic surgery for both menisci and acl reconstruction.

Dear, herniated disc c4-5 means you have cervical spondylosis the pain in legs is not related and swelling too needs evaluation by a physician. Once diagnosis is made then you can get result. Pain killers are not an answer but only to buy time.

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.

My age is 65 years and I have been treated for rheumatoid and taking nicosia tab 120mg daily and medrol 16mg once a week. But if I sit on chair for 2hours or more I get pain in my back. Please advise me.

Well, for rheumatoid nucoxia and medrol are not the good options. Considering your age it can have an impact on the kidneys. If it is rheumatoid you will have to take proper treatment for it like folitrax (methotrexate). Kindly consult a rheumatologist around you. Backpain is not a symptom of rheumatoid arthritis. So it has to be looked into. Regards.

Hello prolonged sitting reduces the blood flow to the joint, second thing kneecap pain can be caused by any imbalance or dysfunction of the stabilising forces that keep the kneecap tracking smoothly in this groove, or by damage to the back surface of the kneecap. Treatment short term 1) icing 10 to 20 mins 2) taping of the specific muscle long term 1) stretching and strengthening of the muscles around the knee joint hope I answer the question regards.

Hello, My mother is 53 years old, 58-kilo weight and blood pressure usually comes around 130/80. She is suffering from Rheumatoid arthritis fro last few years. We have consulted many doctors and finally she is better but x-ray report shows that there is no gap left between the knee bones because of which she is not able to walk properly so we went to a new doctor and he told us that her current medicines contain the steroid. I have attached her medicines name and have tried my best not to reveal anything about the doctor. I am not trying to point out anything towards the doctor but just for my satisfaction can you please tell some points: 1. Do they really contain steroid? How harmful is that? 2. Are these medicines harmful to health? 3. Please go through the injections name also and let me know are they harmful? Thank you !

He may be suffering from osteoarthritis and applying heat and oil massage is the home remedy. Definite treatment is joint replacement.
