Alternative for knee replacement?

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist,
If it is in the early stage Hyaluronic acid injections in the knee and Glucosamine and collagen granule supplements along with knee exercises. If arthritis is severe, knee replacement is the only solution.

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.

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. Osteoarthritis Treatment: Homeopathy helps to slow down the process of joint pain (osteoarthritis) & also gives a long term relief in pain without side effects.

Dear user, go for xray of the knee joint. If reports are clear wear knee cap. Take inferential and ultrasonic therapy to reduce pain. Or apply heat fermentation twice a day for 15 days. Keep rolled towel under knee and press it gently for 10 mins repeat it twice day.

Dear lybrate-user, to get relief from your problem you need to go for panch karma treatment, which will increase you joint and muscle flexibility and also make them stronger. Advised below; 1. Ayurvedic oil massage and steam 2. Janu basti - the knee joint is called janu sandhi in sanskrit; hence the name janu basti is given to the procedure done on knee joints. In this the knee joint is bathed with warm medicated oil or freshly prepared herbal decoction. Depending on the condition it can be practiced over both the knee joints or on one knee joint. It gives a magical relief from the pain and stiffness associated with knee pain. In many cases jaanu vasti provides a long standing relief. Indicated in: osteoarthritis of knee joints osteoporosis arthrosis of knee joints chronic pain of the knee joint kindly consult any specialist of ayurveda panch karma.

Hello, I understand your concern. Neck stiffness, shoulder stiffness, neck pain these are all due to cervical spondylosis. This is a age related disorder common in old age. For this problem I suggest you to consult a physiotherapist who will teach you some exercises which will help you to reduce the stiffness of neck and shoulder. Additionally, you can take tab. Zerodol-mr 1 tab whenever needed. Osteoarthritis is again a different problem to deal with. As it is a degenerative diaease of joint it is difficult to treat with medication. I really appreciate what you are doing, i. E, weight loss, playing volleyball, working field. All these help you to reduce pain. Additionally, you can try some stretching exercise of joints. Ex. Yoga. Tha tablet which I have mentioned above will also help you to reduce the pain from osteoarthritis. Constipation and gastric problem: try to increase fibre content in your food. Add green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Drink luke warm water as soon as you get up. This will stimulate the gut. Try to develop a habit og going to toilet at the same time daily. This will help your body to get adjust to that time. For gastric problem, you might be already taking some medication. Additionally, avoid tea coffee, spicy food. Take care. If you need any further information you can always contact me through lybrate.

See a good neurologist. First thing would be to rule out other causes for the pain especially the tongue pain. Second, There are other medications for a small fiber neuropathy which is what your father seems to have. Some of them e.g. Duloxetine may help your father.

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).
