Hi, knee pain might be due to degenerative process common at her age as osteolytic (breaking of bone material) activity along with harmonal changes (reduction in estrogen) occurs. Try giving her adequate calcium along with vitamin d supplementation & also she should do knee & supporting muscles strengthning exercises. If this improves her condition then continue doing same for entire life. If there is inadequate relief then visit a pain soecialist or orthopedician who can diagnose the grade of knee osteoarthritis or any other issue (such as cartilage or ligament problem) & treat further. Important thing to understand here is no one can stop the degenerative process of body, you can delay the degeration by conservative management or sometime even interventions for pain relief such as viscosupplementation, cortisone injection, prp therapy or genicular nerve block, but if degeneration wins over conservative or preventive measures than one has to go for knee replacement. Hope it helps.

You may have sciatica pain. To manage new sciatica pain, you may find that certain positions and activities are more comfortable than others. The proper exercises from a physiotherapist will help reduce sciatic pain. The exercises recommended will depend on what's causing the sciatica. It's important to work with a specialist who has experience working with people with sciatica. It's also important to do the exercises exactly as directed. Here are some home treatments for sciatica which you can follow: -do not bend, lift, or sit in a soft, low chair; the pain will get worse. -try a cold pack to see if it helps the pain. If you don't have a cold pack, use a large bag of frozen vegetables; it makes a good first aid cold pack. -after the cold massages, try alternating with heat from hot bag. -you may feel better lying on your back on a firm surface with a pillow under knees. Another option is lying on side with a pillow between the knees to keep the back straight. Also, a recliner chair is helpful. -do activities one you are able to tolerate. Best wishes.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are ways to keep your uric acid value in body to low levels. General recommendations are: - decreasing intake of red meat, alcohol, rice in your diet and other purine rich sources - also increase your water intake so that uric acid is excreted from body well. - keeping your weight to normal levels will also help you. - intake of fresh fruits, citrus fruits and cherries has been implicated in reducing uric acid values in the body as well. Nowadays there is a medication by the name of febuxostat which helps in lowering uric acid levels in body but kindly check out that it suits your body. 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.

Don't take stress, neck pain in your condition is due to poor posture at time of studies. It is nothing surgical. Proper ergonomic measures will relieve your neck pain and also prevent it. 1) Take rest for 1-2 days. 2) Simple analgesics like paracetamol or Ibuprofen to relieve pain 3) Application of ice pack helps in new onset neck pain. 4) Massage locally with analgesic cream 5) Perform neck stretches and muscle strengthening exercises once pain is decreased. 6) Follow good posture habits to avoid further increase in neck pain. Proper ergonomic measures to be taken while studying: 1. Study in a well lit area with good lighting. 2. Use a chair with proper back support. If needed a small back support pillow can be placed behind. 3. Feet should rest flat on floor. Knees and thighs should be on same level when seated on chair. 4. Elbows and forearm should rest on arm rest of chair. 5. Book should be at comfortable reading distance so that slouching of shoulder or bending of neck is avoided. 6. Every hour between studies take a break and walk, perform back and limb muscle stretches.Focus eyes on distant objects during breaks. Consult your doctor immediately in following cases: 1) Neck pain is persistent and progressive 2) Neck pain associated with tingling or numbness in hands or shoulder. Consult again for further queries.

If more than 3 jts are involved then it's polyarthritis. Start hot saline fomentation followed by volini gel and strengthening exercises of all painful parts of body. Continue medicines as advised by doctor. Double stem cell sachets gives best results. For more details about exercises please refer my health tips or chat me on Private consultation.

After writing some notes my hand getting pain don't know the reason I wrote regularly but now a days I feel pain I used bams & pain relief but non of them gives me relief. What to do now.

Physiotherapist, Surat
I understand your pain. Take some alum and mix well in hot water. Immerse your hand and take hot fermentation for 15 min thrice a day. When your hand is in water do some exercises like making fist open and then individual finger movements. This will give you relief from your pain and discomfort. You can also take laser and ift at your nearby physiotherapy center. For any doubt please contact. Make a habit not to write in countinous. Take a break for 4-5 min and then start writing again this will help you to get recover very soon. Best regards.

There is no direct relation between rheumatoid arthritis & food. Take your usual normal diet. Make sure you don't put on extra weight. Take care of your thyroid over activity.

Hello lybrate-user. Kindly elaborate on your problem, how long it has been, how severe it is, is it more on working and eases out after rest or is it continuous throughout the day, any associated weight loss or fever. Also an xray would help us diagnose your problem better, in the meanwhile you can start with a couple of days rest and follow it up with core and back strengthening exercises for a week. Hope this helps.
