Dislocated Kneecap - Knowing The Symptoms & Treatment Of It!

Dislocated Kneecap - Knowing The Symptoms & Treatment Of It!

Whether you are an athlete or a ballet dancer, you will appreciate the importance of having a stable kneecap. Medically known as the patella, the kneecap is a triangular bone that connects the upper thigh to the lower half of the leg. It sits in a groove in the bottom of the femur (thigh bone). When the leg is bent, it stays within the groove. When the leg is extended, it provides support to the quadriceps muscles.

That being the case, a dislocation of the kneecap is a very common injury. Subluxation is a state where there is partial movement of the kneecap out of its position, thereby making the patient’s kneecap unstable. When it completely moves out of its place, it is known as dislocation. Whether you fall on your knees during a sport or have a fall from a bike or get injured during dance or aerobics, it is common to have a dislocated kneecap. Some people are prone to repeated dislocations.


The initial injury is very painful and there might also be damage to the surrounding structures. Other symptoms include:

  1. Buckling of the knee, where your legs cannot support your body weight

  2. Sliding of the kneecap to a side

  3. Catching of the knee in the groove when trying to move it

  4. Pain in the front of the kneecap with any activity

  5. Painful while sitting

  6. Swelling and/or stiffness of the knee joint

  7. Crackling/creaking sound when trying to move the knee joint

  8. Inability to straighten the leg


Though these sound scary, the good news is that in 90% of the cases, the knee returns to its position spontaneously. However, putting it back into its place is a simple and safe procedure and can be done by almost any seasoned medical practitioner. The first step is to confirm that the kneecap is indeed dislocated. This can be done by a combination of physical exercise and x-ray. If required, MRI can be used, but it is not required in most cases. Initial treatment would include the following steps in sequence:

  1. Immobilizing the knee with splint by keeping the leg in a straightened position.

  2. Calling for medical assistance immediately. They can replace the knee back in its position carefully (reduction). An injured kneecap can cause what is known as foot drop by putting pressure on the peroneal nerve. The toes drag on the ground, making it difficult for you to walk.

  3. Use ice in the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes, and repeat after three to four hours throughout the day to reduce pain and swelling.

  4. Surgical correction may not be required, if there is a damage to the ligament.

  5. Flat femur and/or tissue laxity can cause repeated dislocations, where physiotherapy and strengthening exercises are useful.

Arthritis & Knee Pain - Physiotherapy At Your Rescue!

Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints. Painswelling, and stiffness are the primary symptoms of arthritis. Any joint in the body may be affected by the disease, but it is particularly common in the knee.

Knee arthritis can make it hard to do many everyday activities, such as walking or climbing stairs. It is a major cause of lost work time and a serious disability for many people. There are 2 types of arthritis the knee joint in the human body can get afflicted with. They are:

  • OsteoarthritisThe form of arthritis which, with increasing pain, slowly wears down the joint cartilages is called osteoarthritis. This form of arthritis usually affects people after the age 40. The symptoms of osteoarthritis include:

    • severe pain in the knee joints

    • pain after walking up the stairs and it subsiding once you are on rest

    • severe pain after the movement of joints for a long time

    • pain that becomes worse in rainy days

    • joints becoming stiff after waking up in the morning but they improve in the latter part of the day

    • pain which also occurs in the thighs and the genital regions coupled with joints swelling and joints getting stiff after rest.

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic form of arthritis caused because of the knee joint inflammations. This form of arthritis can occur at any age. Being an auto-immune disease, its symptoms include, but are not limited to:

    • severe pain in the morning

    • mild fever accompanying the pain

    • joints suddenly becoming swollen, red and warm causing, immense pain

    • sudden stiffness of the joints

    • pain that increases in cold weather

    • mild fever, extreme tiredness and weakening of the muscles

Doctors are still doubtful about what exactly causes the disease; but the deformation of the immune system might cause the damage of the joints, causing people who are already suffering from obesity, smokers, and women, in general, more prone to this disease.

When the knee pain is diagnosed as a form of arthritis, the following treatments are suggested:

  1. If you are overweight or obese, losing some of those extra pounds can go a long way in reducing the pain.

  2. Muscle-stretching exercises are effective in keeping the knee joints flexible.

  3. Acupuncture and devices such as knee braces and knee caps can relieve the pain.

  4. Prescribed dosage of anti-inflammatory drugs such as Tylenol, Motrin, and Advil or injections of hyaluronic acid might relieve your pain.

  5. If regular treatments do not work, you might opt for knee-replacement surgery and osteotomy (the process of cutting a bone with the help of surgery) which might better the alignment of the knee by transforming the bone shapes.

Physiotherapy For Knee Arthritis

Physiotherapy treatment is aimed at improving the symptoms of the disease (i.e. knee pain, swelling, stiffness), and you should begin to notice a positive difference within one or a few physiotherapy sessions.

The main goals of physiotherapy for your knee arthritis are:

  1. Reduce your knee pain and inflammation.
  2. Normalise your knee joint range of motion.
  3. Strengthen your knee: esp quadriceps (esp VMO) and hamstrings.
  4. Strengthen your lower limb: calves, hip and pelvis muscles.
  5. Improve your patellofemoral (knee cap) alignment and function.
  6. Normalise your muscle lengths.
  7. Improve your proprioception, agility and balance.
  8. Improve your technique and function eg walking, squatting.

Hi, I heard about kegel exercise in this website so how to perform kegel exercise in first to the last steps. Thank you.
•How to do kegel ex’s ••Find the right muscles. To identify your pelvic floor muscles, stop urination in midstream or tighten the muscles that keep you from passing gas. These maneuvers use your pelvic floor muscles. Once you've identified your pelvic floor muscles, you can do the exercises in any position, although you might find it easiest to do them lying down at first. •Perfect your technique. Tighten your pelvic floor muscles, hold the contraction for three seconds, and then relax for three seconds. Try it a few times in a row. When your muscles get stronger, try doing Kegel exercises while sitting, standing or walking. •Maintain your focus. For best results, focus on tightening only your pelvic floor muscles. Be careful not to flex the muscles in your abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Avoid holding your breath. Instead, breathe freely during the exercises. •Repeat 3 times a day. Aim for at least three sets of 10 repetitions a day. Don't make a habit of using Kegel exercises to start and stop your urine stream. Some doctors think this could cause a bladder infection. Now that you have located your pelvic floor muscles, you can exercise them even when you do not have to urinate (pee) by following these simple steps: 1.Tighten and hold your pelvic floor muscles for five seconds (count 1 one thousand, 2 one thousand, 3 one thousand, 4 one thousand, 5 one thousand). 2.Relax your pelvic muscles. You have just done one Kegel exercise. You should plan to do 10 to 20 Kegel exercises three to four times each day. Another way to tighten your pelvic floor muscles is to: 1.Squeeze the muscles in your anus (like you are holding a bowel movement). 2.Relax your pelvic floor muscles after each attempt. 3.Repeat this exercise 10 to 20 times. When you do your Kegel exercises, remember•Do not hold your breath. •Do not push down. Squeeze your muscles together tightly and imagine that you are trying to lift this muscle up. •Do not tighten the muscles in your stomach, buttocks, or thighs. •Relax your pelvic floor muscles between each squeeze.

Hello- Yes it is. A “leaky penis” can be used to describe the random release of either seminal fluids or urine that dribbles out of the urethra. It’s an unfortunate condition, unsightly and unsanitary. But men don’t have to be relegated to it; it can be treated.

सर्वाइकल एक्सरसाइज - Cervical Exercises!

सर्वाइकल एक्सरसाइज - Cervical Exercises!

आज का वक्त बहुत बदल गया है. हर किसी को हर चीज़ अच्छी चाहिए जैसे अच्छी तनख्वाह, अच्छा घर, लक्सरी लाइफ आदि. यह सब पाने की होड़ में लोग संघर्ष में लगे है. उन्नति हासिल करने के लिए दिन रात मेहनत में लगे है. इस लगातार किये जाने वाली मेहनत से हमें हर चीज़ तो बेहतर मिल रही है लेकिन यह हमारे स्वास्थ्य पर मानसिक, शारीरिक और भावनात्मक तौर पर गलत असर डाल रही है. हमारी इच्छाओं के चलते हम स्वयं को ज़रूरत से ज़्यादा तनावग्रस्त कर लेते हैं व शरीर को दिन रात काम करने वाली एक मशीन समझ लेते है. इस कड़ी मेहनत के चलते अति सामान्य रोग जो हम सभी को प्रभावित करता है, वह है गर्दन का दर्द. गर्दन का दर्द को चिकित्सा शब्दावली में ‘सर्विकालजिया’ कहा जाता हैं. यह दर्द लंबे अंतराल तक निरंतर एक ही मुद्रा में बैठे रहने, या पूरी रात ठीक से न सोने और कम व्यायाम करने के कारण होता है. कंप्यूटर पर काम करने वालो को यह समस्या बहुत ज्यादा होती है. इन लोगो को गर्दन और कंधे दोनों में दर्द होता रहता है.
मॉडर्न साइंस में सर्वाइकल स्पौण्डिलाइटिस का उपचार फिजियोथेरेपी और पेनकिलर टैबलेट हैं. इन तरीको से शीघ्र राहत तो मिल जाता है, लेकिन यह केवल अस्थायी राहत है. यदि इस समस्या का कोई स्थाई समाधान है तो वो है योग. योग इस बीमारी को जड़ से ठीक कर देता है. किन्तु एकदम से कठिन योग का अभ्यास करना सही नहीं है. कठिन योग करने से पहले कुछ आसान योग करने चाहिए. दरहसल हल्के फुल्के योग करने से धीरे-धीरे शरीर में लचक आ जाती है और कठिन योग के लिए शरीर तैयार हो जाता है. योग का एक सामान्य नियम यहीं है कि योग शुरू करते समय कुछ हलके फुल्के आसन करने चाहिए. इन हलके फुल्के आसनो से शरीर में उर्जा का संचार होता है और हमारा शरीर भी कठिन योगों के लिए तैयार होता है. यदि हम हल्के फुल्के आसन की जगह सीधे कठिन आसन शुरू करते है तो किसी प्रकार की परेशानियां भी आ सकती हैं.

* ग्रीवा संचालन
ग्रीवा संचालन आसन के अभ्यास से गर्दन से सम्बन्धित कई परेशानियों में लाभ मिलता है. जो लोगों को लम्बे समय तक गर्दन को एक ही स्थिति में रखकर काम करना होता है, उन्हें यह आसन जरूर करना चाहिए. इस आसन को आराम की मुद्रा में बैठकर किया जाता है. इस योग के दौरान गर्दन के मूवमेंट के अनुसार श्वास प्रश्वास करना चाहिए. इस योग क्रिया में श्वसन पर भी नियंत्रण करने का अभ्यास किया जा सकता है. ग्रीवा संचालन का नियमित अभ्यास करने से चेहरे पर कांति आती है और गर्दन सुडौल होती है. यह तनाव कम करता है और साथ ही शरीर के ऊपरी हिस्से को आराम और सुकून देता है. शारारिक तनाव के अलावा यह मानसिक तनाव भी कम करता है. योग में बल की जरूरत नहीं होती है इसलिए ग्रीवा संचालन के दौरान गर्दन को अनावश्य रूप से तानना नहीं चाहिए.

* बालासन योग मुद्रा
बालासन योग मुद्रा का अभ्यास करने से गर्दन और पीठ के दर्द से निजाद मिलती है. इस आसन को करने के लिए सबसे पहले फर्श पर घुटने के बल बैठ जाएँ. इसके पश्चात सिर को ज़मीन से लगाएं. फिर अपने हाथों को सिर से लगाकर आगे की ओर सीधा रखें और आपकी हथेलिया जमीं से छूती हुई होना चाहिए. अब अपने हिप्स को ऐड़ियों की ओर ले जाते हुए बहार की और सांस छोड़े. इस अवस्था में कम से 15 सेकेण्ड से 1 मिनट तक रहें. यह आसन का अभ्यास आपके कूल्हों, जांघों और पिंडलियों को लचीला भी बनाता है. यह आपके मन को शांत भी करता है.

* मत्स्यासन – फिश पोज़
मत्स्यासन करने के लिए सर्वप्रथम किसी समतल जगह पर चादर बिछाकर पीठ के बल लेट जाएं. अब अपनी कुहनियों के सहारे सर तथा धड़ के भाग को जमीन पर रखें. अब इस स्थिति में पीठ का ऊपरी हिस्सा तथा गर्दन जमीन से ऊपर की और उठाए. हाथों को सीधा कर पेट पर रख लें. इस स्थिति में जितनी देर आसानी से रुक सकते हैं रुकें. फिर वापस पूर्व स्थिति में आ जाएं.

* विपरीत कर्णी आसन
विपरीत कर्णी आसन आपको हल्के-फुल्के पीठ दर्द से आराम देता है. इस आसन में दीवार के सहारे पैर उपर करते है. सबसे पहले तो अपनी पीठ के बल लेट जाएँ और अपने टाँगों को दीवार का सहारा देते हुए पैरों को छत की ओर उठा लें. अपनी बाहों को फैला कर शरीर के दोनों तरफ ज़मीन पर रख दें और आपकी हथेली आकाश की तरफ मोड़ कर खुली हुई होना चाहिए. कुछ सेकण्ड्स इस मुद्रा में रहे और गहरी लंबी श्वास लें और छोड़ें. यह योग क्रिया आपकी गर्दन के पिछले हिस्से को मालिश जैसा फायदा देता है और थकान को दूर कर पैरों की ऐंठन को दूर करता

* शवासन
इस आसन को सबसे बाद में करना चाहिए. यह आसन करने में सबसे सरल है. इसमें शरीर को ज़मीन पर स्थिर अवस्था में रखना है. सबसे पहले तो ज़मीन पर सीधे लेट जायें और हाथों को शरीर के दोनों ओर रख लें, पैरों को थोड़ा सा खोल दें. इस स्तिथि में आपकी हथेलिया आकाश की तरफ होनी चाहिए. मांसपेशियों तथा खुद को विश्राम देने के लिए शरीर को इस स्थिति में कम से कम 5 मिनट तक रखे.

How Gaining Weight Can Lead To Poor Sex Life?

How Gaining Weight Can Lead To Poor Sex Life?

One of the most common reasons of erectile dysfunction is obesity, which might sink your intimate life to a great extent. It is really crucial that you are in control of your weight and regain your libido.
One of the most common chronic conditions that men face is that of erectile dysfunction (ED). Statistically, over 18 million men above the age of 20 experience it to some degree. It is an inability to achieve or maintain erection required for desired sexual activity. Though there might be various reasons for it, there is a consistent connection between obesity and sexual dysfunction. It has been found that obese men are prone to ED 2.5 times more than those of normal weight. These symptoms of ED and various other health issues can be observed if you are just 30 pounds overweight!


  1. Obesity causes atherosclerosis, which is a cardiovascular condition. In this condition, cholesterol is deposited on the walls of blood vessels, thus restraining blood flow to the organs in the body including the penis.
  2. The testosterone level in obese men is low. Due to absence of this sexually-stimulating hormone, there is an inability to achieve erections as testosterone is needed to increase the level of nitric oxide in penile tissue, which acts as a blood vessel dilator.
  3. In most cases, erectile dysfunction is considered as the first sign of a weak heart in men who are overweight.


  1. Men might experience a low libido, because of the reduced testosterone levels.
  2. They might experience a depressed mood and lowering in their levels of energy.
  3. They might experience a diminished sense of vitality.

It’s really crucial to shed that extra weight if you want to regain your sex life. It has been found by researchers at the Center for Obesity Management in Naples, Italy that one third of obese men have improved sexual activity after they lost weight.

  1. Lose weight. Check on how much you eat in a day. Aim at losing 1 to 2 pounds a week, which equals to losing around 500 to 1000 calories in a day.
  2. Look out for what you eat in a day. Avoid chips and dips, and become friends with greens and other raw vegetables as your snack. Stop eating the processed and red meats; replace them with fish instead. Switch to whole grains.
  3. Physical activity is the most important aspect when it comes to losing weight. Implement a successful weight-loss strategy. Take out some time by skipping a few episodes of your TV show, get up from the couch, and get active for around 30-45 minutes in a day. Repeat this 3-5 times in a week.
  4. Lastly, maintain these habits until you don’t shed those extra pounds that are a hindrance to your sex life.

Osteoporosis - Myths And Facts About It!

Osteoporosis - Myths And Facts About It!

Osteoporosis is a commonly experienced condition where the bones tend to get thin and become hollow over time. This is a condition that is experienced mostly by people who are over the age of 50 years, and even more commonly by women who have been through menopause. Other risk factors include smoking as well as medication which can lead to such degenerative diseases as a side effect. Let us find out about living with osteoporosis and the many myths and facts surrounding the same-

  1. A Natural Part of Aging: This is a fact. While not everyone who ages will wind up with this condition, it is commonly experienced by patients who are growing old. One can resort to taking calcium supplements as well as plenty of Vitamin D in order to prevent the risk of fractures that are a common occurrence in such a condition where the bones become too hollow. Also, mild and moderate exercise will help the condition.
  2. Only Female Patients: This is a myth. While it is true that women form a major risk group when it comes to this condition, there are many men who also suffer from it. It has been demonstrated by various medical studies that one in every five men in the USA alone are prone to this condition. Furthermore, due to exercise, sports and other heavy manual work, young men are more likely to end up with a fractured bone than an aging woman.
  3. Worry only when you are Old: This is also a myth. One must remember that the major bone mass forms by the time a person hits the age of 18 to 20 years. This is the time when nutrition, exercise and lifestyles must be structured in a way that such troubles like osteoporosis will not follow you into the later years when your bones begin to age. Ample and strong bone mass nourished by proper habits, will help in preventing such conditions to a large extent.
  4. Fractures only happen if you Fall: This is another myth. It is important to keep in mind that living with a condition like osteoporosis means that you have to be vigilant at all times in your daily routine and other activities. Strain on the bones can also lead to fractures, and one does not necessarily have to fall down to get one. Leaning over too much can also lead to a fracture!
  5. You can feel the Degeneration: It is another myth that you can actually feel your bones getting weaker. Usually, there are no symptoms of this condition until it has progressed to a particularly painful stage in your life. The best way to find out if you are suffering from osteoporosis is by taking a bone density test.

How To Treat Pain with Acupuncture

Aches and pains are ailments that affect one and all at some point or the other. The myriad quick heal methods like pain killers and hot cold packs might accord temporary relief, but they aren't really effective in terms of curing the root of the problem. All these bodily pains are related to some innate illness and these painkillers merely provide superficial respite. Thus, a large number of people are growingly looking at alternative therapies, which not only remedy the pain, but also help in fighting the source of the disease.

Acupuncture for the longest time has occupied the imagination of many as a viable alternative to the harrowing mainstream clinical procedures. Integral to the ancient medicinal practises of the orient, acupuncture is replete with palliative properties and has been known to benefit a phenomenal number of people enduring serious distresses.

It is especially effective in curing the following pains.

1. Osteoarthritis: Acupuncture enhances the bone immunity and abates the joint pains immensely.

2. Chronic headaches: Acupuncture relieves the stress on your cranial nerves and soothes the headaches that are caused by it.

3. Menstrual Cramps: Menstrual cramps are caused by the contractions in the uterine muscles during the periods. Acupuncture hugely palliates such traumas.

It is a natural way to stimulate the health boosting properties we are imbued with. The philosophy behind acupuncture endorses the fact that your bodies are hardwired to deal with any ailment from within. Acupuncture simply enhances such in- built defences and enables you to lead a healthier life. While you may be skeptical of the long drawn process that acupuncture involves, the benefits are many. Amongst other things it reduces your dependence on drugs, which is indeed an important aspect to consider. It generally involves gently pricking the pressure points of your body with sterilized needles and relying of the healing powers of your latent heat pressure.
