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).

Joint Replacement Surgery - When Should You Go for it

Joint Replacement Surgery - When Should You Go for  it

Joint Replacement Surgery is a procedure where the damaged surface of the advanced arthritic joints are removed and replaced with artificial joints, such as metallic, plastic and ceramic joints.
These surfaces closely replicate the original anatomy.

When do you need a knee replacement?
When you suffer from severe pain or deformity in the joint (knee in this case), the pain or stiffness and deformity makes it difficult to perform simple tasks. Severe grade IV osteoarthritic knees of  people over 50 years when have pain, swelling and deformity fail to respond to medicines, physiotherapy, injections and rest.

Aim of the surgery

  1. Correct the deformity: Relieve the pain and give near full movements almost immediately after the procedure. Details including techniques and safety, it is a safe, rewarding surgery with a success rate of as high as 99.5% when done by an able and experienced professional.
  2. Anaesthesia: Usually it is the spinal cord epidural where one is rendered numb for 3 to 4 hours waist down. Sometimes a general anaesthesia is given. A 4 to 5 inches cut is made in front of the knee and all the damaged cartilages, bones, loose bodies are removed from the lower end of the thigh, upper end of the tibia (usually of few millimetres) and the surface re-crafted to match the size and shape of the artificial joint (it is usually imported). They are fixed with bone cement. The ligaments and muscles are reattached and the parts closed.
  3. Recovery: Stand up and walk a few steps with a walker the day after the procedure i.e. in 24 hours. Physiotherapy in hospital for 5 to 7 days and/or walking, progressively longer walks and exercises over the following 15 days. Stitches are removed in 15 days. The patient can return back to normal activity in 4 to 8 weeks the surgery.
  4. Activities: Normal walks of 3 to 5 km per day Climbing stairs, cycling, swimming, and driving can be performed with the new implant(s) now.
  5. Avoid: Squatting/kneeling Prohibited: contact sports like football, cricket, tennis; jumping; adventure sports Longevity of joints: 15-35 years depending on the materials used.

I'm 57yrs old suffering from knee pain from past 1 months occurs during walking and climbing staircase.No problem while sitting or just standing. I got operated thigh bone due to fracture because of which couldn't walk properly from past 4 months. I vistied doctors in my place. They suggested for x-ray and then doctor advised due to not walking much. The knee bone has been degenerated. Only solution is to walk more. I am doing so but no improvement. Could you please suggest any alternative medicine I can try.

Check your calcium level and body weight. Take care.

Hi, you should know the bad effects of masturbation.These are following:-1. Masturbation makes you weak, it spends more energy and burns your calorie 2. Masturbation creates nervousness and neurological problems 3.Masturbation is a main cause for erectile dysfunction. 4. Masturbation addicts you even if you taste it for one time. Controlling it is a very big menace. 5. Masturbation creates drowsiness; you will be sleeping most of the time after ejaculation of your sperm. You will experience a damn tired. 6.Masturbation causes stress and strain in your mind and soul. 7. Masturbation also affects us psychologically; it creates depression after ejaculation and makes one to feel bad on his own. If you are having pain abdomen and knee pain after doing self sex, then you must stop it. Take Five phos 6x, 5 tabs twice daily. Revert me after 15 days.

The treatment of gout is simple. Keep uric acid continuously below 6 to prevent uric acid deposition. Yes diet control helps but, bcoz most gout pts hv a genetic predisposition, diet control will not allow uric acid to be decreased below 6/5 which will control the disease. Most gout pts will require a medicine along with diet control. A common misconception by most doctors is to stop dals, cabbage, spinach etc. But vegetable or plant sources of protein do not convert well to uric acid. If you stop dals and non veg you will hv no source of protein left. If you take your medicine properly, you can even have a bit of non veg too.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Knee replacement for knee osteoarthritis is a very commonly done procedure but as like any other surgeries, it can have certain issues, most commonly there can be infection after surgery, pain, stiffness etc but if it is done at a good center and with good post operative rehabilitation, it usually does very well. Also rehabilitation depends upon whether one or both knees are getting replaced, for one usually 3-4 weeks and for both knees around 6-8 weeks of intensive physical therapy will be required. Precautions to be taken are to sit on a chair or with knees at approx 90 deg flexion to prevent eccentric loading of implant, not to sit cross legged, do proper physical therapy as advised by your treating doctor, to avoid any infections like uti etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
