Hi lybrate-user. Headache is pain in any region of the head. Headaches may occur on one or both sides of the head, be isolated to a certain location, radiate across the head from one point, or have a viselike quality. A headache may appear as a sharp pain, a throbbing sensation or a dull ache. Headaches can develop gradually or suddenly, and may last from less than an hour to several days. If You give through a description of the condition, the type of pain and the timing and pattern of attacks and food habits. It can be helpful for us to give appropriate medication. Here by I am advicing few General medication which helps to relieve headache. Medication:-According to ayurveda based on individuals prakruti i, e body constitution, age, diet and life styles. In classics different modalities of treatment has been mentioned like shodhana (Panchakarma-detoxification procedure of the body), Shamana (internal medicine). Ayurvedic therapies (panchakarma) for migraine: 1. Shirolepa – Application of herbal pastes which pacify Pitta Dosha like Sandalwood, camphor, Jatamansi. 2. Shiro Dhara – pouring of thin stream of liquid over scalp. 3. Shiro basti-Retaining the medicated oils over the leather cap fitted over the scalp. Any vata-pitta pacifying oils are beneficial for this purpose. 4. Sneha nasya – Instillation of medicated oils can be carried to the nostrils. Shamana (Internal medication):- 1. Pathyadi khada-10 ml with warm water twice a day after food. 2. Tab Niargim-1 tab twice a day after food. 3. Tab Kamaduga with mouktik-1 tab twice a day before food. Tips:- 1. Do not take pain mitigating medicines frequently. Over intake of pain medicines may cause rebound headache and may eventually increase the frequency of migraines. 2. Make sure to sleep and eat at regular intervals. 3. Make sure to sleep at least 7 hours at night. 4. Avoid fasting. It will increase both Pitta and Vata dosha, worsening migraines. Do not skip meals. 5. Quit smoking and get rid of alcoholic addiction 6. Do not drink strong coffee / tea. Make it light. 7. Do not take too hot water bath or too cold water bath. 8. Avoid spicy n fermented food.

Hello, there are many causes behind backache *any strain or sprain in the muscles or ligaments of the back during lifting of heavy objects is the main cause of the lower back pain. *sitting in the wrong posture for a very long time is another cause. *people suffering from constipation may also suffer from lower back pain. *sometimes sleeping on wrong type of beds can also cause pain in the back. Follow the tips *take rest or move about once in 1-2 hours in case of working in a constant position. *maintain a good posture while reading or working with computers. *take a high fibre content diet like vegetables, fruits, etc.

Pros and Cons with armanentarium of Knee surgery : Arthroscopy surgery to manage
meniscal lesions and correcting
ligament deficit help to save the joint
from deteriorating and in specific
cases cartilage reconstruction can
also be carried out to save joints and
avoiding replacement surgery. All
joints can be managed by
arthroscopy with knee, shoulder, hip
being large joints and frequently
subjected for surgery.
If at all one has to undergo Joint
replacement a lot of improvement
can be achieved by using specialised
techniques, advancements:
#2; Minimally invasive joint
replacement (MIS) : using not only
small incisions but preventing cutting
of muscles ,bones or tendons like
OCM approach and yet gaining
visibility of wide exposure is the crux
of MIS approaches. One should be
sufficiently trained in these to impart
results.
#2; Partial/Unicondylar knee
arthroplasty: A majority of patients
have medial knee arthritis to begin
with and unicondylar knee
arthroplasty can save you from total
knee replacement for years to
decades. Advantages of high mobility
and kneeling, cross leg sitting and
faster mobilisation.
#2; Computer Navigation Joint
replacement: This system can be
used with newer implants of any
make to optimise outcome with the
help of computer precision
technology with navigation systems
perfection can be aimed for implants
placement, thus achieving basic
essential of good function and
longevity of replaced joint.

Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed.

Advice. 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. 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. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).
