I had been to 'Puttur Bone Setter' clinic in Chintadripet (Near Chintadripet Fish Market) two months back and I am,completely satisfied with their treatment and I was able to see the benefit within two week's time. I had been there for my right leg fracture and this has completely cured and am back to normal chores. I was also given an oil which will enable in strengthening the Bones and this is like a magic pill, where all kinds of joint pain is being relived. Sharing this to highlight that this is a good place to go.

Dear Lybrate user, On primary bases required to change posture & position. Some time it may be involvement of professional postures causes this kind trouble so observe it and if wrong than try to change it. For proper diagnosis consult nearest Ayurveda Vaidhya. Basic advice is to Apply Mahanarayan tail on pain site with genteel Abhyang (massage) for 10-15 mins, than after Swedan (steam ).

Before two months. My father's thigh bone was braked up and a rod was inserted in left thigh. No recovery is till now. And bone is not healed. X ray reports are in my documents. Doctors tells for new operation in which a new bone they can insert. So pls help us we are very depressed.

Fellowship in Neurological Rehabilitation, BPTh/BPT

Hi, Its seems your father have complication what wee call Non union or delayed union of fractured bone. There are lots of causes that leads to non union even after rod fixation or any fixation. Reasons cav vary from bone lacks adequate stability, blood flow, or both; diabetes, Thyroid, poor Nurtition, complicated fracture break, Low vitamin D level, infection, etc. They also are more likely if the bone breaks from a high-energy injury, such as from a car wreck, because severe injuries often impair blood supply to the broken bone. Doc have suggested a second surgery as the first surgery have not provided desired result i. E union of fractured femur (thigh) bone. Surgical options include bone graft or bone graft substitute, internal fixation, and/or external fixation. As internal fixation was done for first surgery i. E Rod insertion so your doc have suggested you Bone graft. During this procedure, bone from another part of the body at the fracture site to" jump start" the healing process. A bone graft provides a scaffold on which new bone may grow. Bone grafts also provide fresh bone cells and the naturally occurring chemicals the body needs for bone healing. So union of fracture break can occurs faste. R Non-union conditions often require a long healing period after surgery, and depending on the physical condition of the patient and the extent of the complication, Thanks. Take care.

Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Management: -Stretching or activities that place additional strain on the back are discouraged. -Sleeping with a pillow between the knees while lying on one side may increase comfort. -Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees would also relieves pain and no pillow under your head. -Some people seem to benefit from the use of ice or heat. Take care, do not use a heating pad on ‘high’ or place ice directly on the skin. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.

My right leg was broken (thigh and angle). Leg is severely injured. My accident date is 01.07.2105. But now I cannot walk. I want to need walking. So what can I do for walking. I need help. I have no money for my treatment. My family is poor.

In all probability bone malunion or deformity must be there. You may consult in a govt. District hospital orthopedic surgeon at the hospital, he may do the management under guidance of Poor's treatment mandatory in govt hospitals under some rules for benefits scheme for poor and destitute. Even charity hospital if available can be helpful. Walking aids, etc,braces ,are provided free of cost by voluntary association of handicaps assistance, which a govt doctor in your city would guide you to. It maybe possible for him to do necessary corrections also to your limb injuries with cast, dressings,medications free of cost available there.

Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. 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.

Two years back she was having pain in knees. After sitting she the pain was worst. After seeing a physician we went to a neurologist. He said that certain nerves were pinched after an x ray. She was prescribed pregabalin and some other medicines. After two months she got a fit lasting for a minute only. We stopped that medicine and went to another neurologist. He said that there is no problem with nervous system and that knee pain is due to weight. He advised for a CT scan which was normal. However he prescribed Oxetol 300 mg and 450 mg for 3 years. After one month she was tired with the medicine and stopped. Everything was normal for two years. Then again she was having severe pain in leg. We went to another physician and he gave medicines for neuropathic pain of which pregabalin was a medicine. After using for one month she got a fit during night. This time the duration was even shorter. Both times it happened when she awoke in night and fainted. She told a feeling of anxiety that night before sleeping and told her head went numb or cold. We went to physician. He checked history stopped all medicines only giving oxetol 300mg in the morning and 450mg in the evening. Two months passed and she is fine. Very slight pain in knees also. But the doctor says she had to take this medicine for 5 years. Please advice us. We do not know whether she is having epilepsy or it was side effect of the medicines given for neuropathic pain.

Hello lybrate-user, knee pain occur after 30-35 are due to degenerative changes in bone. It may be due to osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. So consult a physio and learn some strengthening exercise and start doing it guided by them. From xray images and symptoms of patient we can come into conclusion either it is due to osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. So in both the condition knee strengthening exercise plays important role. There are also ultrasound, ift, swd modality availablele in physio setup to get you releive from pain. So it would be better if you visit a nearby physio and start doing exercise guided by them.
