You must do massage of the knee daily twice a day with sea same oil one inch above the knee one inch below the knee shin bone four inch below the knee 15 time each point and under the hollow portion of knee daily for five days. After that call back with the results and for more details like cracking etc.

Good afternoon sir/mam. I am nilima, my mother is 55, fat & short, she is having problem in her knee from long time. I request please give me if any solution.

Very Good Afternoon Nilima, Thanks for writing in regards to your mother. From the given information about your mother, it appears her weight to be primary problem which may have contributed to possible wear & tear changes inside the knee by now. To be confirmed, a clinician like Physiotherapist & Orthpedic Consultant needs to assess her. There are many solutions for knee pain. Now which solution will be more apt for her can only be determined via clinical assessment & treatment. I believe knee pain for a length of time, most patients have tried doing massage, heat, pain killers to name a few. So, best solution for you & your mother is to get her on board regarding treatment of the problem. Get her to be motivated to lose weight through diet & controlled exercises. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss further. I use this opportunity to express my gratitude to seek help for restoring good health. Best wishes

I got a ligament tear in my ankle around a year back. But it healed on its own. Now whenever I extend my ankle beyond a certain distance while playing it tears again. It had healed 3-4 times but it is not happening this time? What should I do?

Orthopedist, Trichy
if the ligament injury had been a complete tear then it wouldnt heal spontaneously and that would give rise to recurrent instability symptoms. if you have pain and a sense of giving way in the ankle then you would need a proper orthopaedic examination. you may be advised a course of physio or surgery depending on the examination findings and imaging results

What is the reason?
And solution?
Hello, Your mother may be suffering from Osteo-Arthritis, get an X-ray (knees) done to rule out. We can't reverse the established pathology back, but we can control the process in the stage it is so that it wouldn't grow further. Medication: For the time being give her Schwabe's Biocombination-19/ thrice daily and apply Topi-MP gel over the knees. Daily intake of calcium (milk, milk products, green leafy vegetables) is mandatory for her as bones get weak at this time. Calcarea Phos. 6x/ thrice daily can also be given to her Apart from this, light walk daily and physiotherapy will also relieve your pain.

Hi I can understand your problem. 1) apply hot and cold fomentation. 2) learn strengthening exercise of quadriceps and hamstring from physiotherapist. 3) do regular stretching calf muscles. 4) wear comfortable foot wear. Do share investigation reports if you have.

I am 36 years old, I have a low back pain.What can i do?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist,
I am 36 years old, I have a low back pain.What can i do?
Hi, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

My father have pain in his knees can you please advise how can he get relief . He is 62 year old.
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).

No without knowing the calcium values in your body you should not take Calcium tablets. When leg pain occurs after strenuous physical activity, you can simply apply cold compresses. This will help reduce the pain by numbing the affected area and control swelling and inflammation. Wrap a few ice cubes (or a bag of frozen peas) in a thin towel. Apply this pack on the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes, while keeping the leg(s) elevated. Do this a few times a day. Note: Do not apply ice directly on the skin, as it may cause frostbite.

Advice. Piriformis stretch lie on your back. Cross your left leg over your right so that your left ankle rests on your right knee. Use your hands to grab hold of your left knee and pull it gently toward the opposite shoulder. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds. Relax, and then repeat with the other leg. Repeat this cycle 2 to 4 times.
