For knee pain the best treatment course would be to undergo janu vasti at a panchakarma centre near u. After undergoing janu vasti, you shall be completely treated. If need the doc might prescribe you some ayurvedic medicines depending on your body type. Till then you can have drumstick soup daily. Also boil 2 pieces of garlic in 1 cup milk & 1 cup water. When 1 cup remains, strain & drink daily after adding 1 tsf cow ghee.

Firstly avoid sitting cross-legged and squatting, do hot fomentation if not having high blood sugar. Take medicines and apply local diclofenac gel. Walk with a tripod stick. If still pain persists then go for joint replacement. Do not delay if there is severe pain.

Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation. To relieve mild pain: Stay off your leg as much as possible Apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day Elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down Please go to a Physiotherapist if: You have pain during or after walking You have swelling in both legs Your pain gets worse Your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment You have painful varicose veins leg pain happens when your muscles are tired or dehydrated. Drink more water if you're prone to leg cramps. Also Low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps. Pleas check you Calcium and Magnesium levels.

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. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Physiotherapy Treatment for Spinal Arachnoiditis

Physiotherapy Treatment for Spinal Arachnoiditis

SPINAL ARACHNOIDITIS

Arachnoiditis of the spinal cord is a non specific inflammatory disease of the arachonoid membrane which is characterized pathologically by thickening of the arachnoid membrane with adhesion or adherence to the dura matter and manifested clinically through roots or radiclar signs and symptoms.  

CLINICAL FEATURES

Arachnoiditis is usually seen in 40 to 60 years of age but rarely below 20years.

Onset: it can be acute or sometimes it may take months.Pain: pain is usually localized type with a burning character. Later the painstarts radiating down the lower limb due to nerve root irritation.

Paresthesia: this also takes place due to irritation of the sensory nerve  roots.

Sensory loss: this occurs when the sensory nerve roots get completely blocked.

Muscle weakness with atrophy: although the anatomy of the motor nerve roots make them less prone to get compressed, it can happen in the later stage which will then give rise to weakness and wasting of the corresponding muscles. 

MANAGEMENT 

The medical management usually consists of corticosteroids in acute stage of inflammation. NSAID for pain relief and inflammation.

Surgical management consists of Rhizotomy in cases of unbearable pain.Surgical decompression for removal of cyst

PHYSIOTHERAPY MANAGEMENT comprises of 

Moist heat mainly for reducing the muscle spasm. 

SSF also relieves pain by reducing spasm  and by increasing the blood supply to the area. In case of radiating pain due to involvement of nerve roots the patient may be treated with TENS. Even in     cases of paresthesia TENS is usually used. 

Laser has been found to reduce the inflammation and also break the adhesion in the deep seated structures  which helps in setting free the irritation on the nerve roots thereby     relieving the discomforts of the patient. 

Active exercises like static exercises for the abdominus, back extensor, gluteus and quadriceps helps in reducing   pain in the initial stages and also maintains the tone in the muscles. 

Dynamic exercises may be started once the  pain level comes within the patient’s tolerance level. These exercises may be continued by the patient throughout the life for preventing any chances     of recurrence. 

SLR: Active and passive SLR is given to  lengthen the neural structures and relieve the tension in them. This is a type of neural mobilization that helps in relieving the signs of   radiculopathy. 

Gait training in cases of muscular weakness.
