Dear Lybrate User, your grandfather has osteoarthritis.. For that.. It is considered as Vayu increased in the body and ultimately arthritis development due to lack of synovial fluid in the knee joint. So Avoid fast food junk food oily food spicy food heavy food to digest etc.. Drink more water.. Eat more and more green leafy vegetables.. Don't take opposite potency diet like milk and carrots sour fruits etc.. Don't suppress any natural urges like urine stool etc.. For Ayurvedic treatment and more guidelines Consult me..

Your daily habits or age may be the root of your knee problems. Some common home care techniques for knee pain that control inflammation and help to break the inflammatory cycle are protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation, glucosamine supplement has also may help, I can prescribe a detailed treatment plan. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

I am suffering from Spine problem. There is a Gap in 4, 5 6. I have pain in legs.
Many lumbar spine conditions are interrelated. For example, joint instability can lead to disc degeneration, which in turn can put pressure on the nerve roots, etc. The most common cause of lower back pain is muscle strain or other muscle problems. A homoeopathic constitutional treatment not only cures the present symptoms but heals the disease from root itself thus giving a permanent cure You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Simple Knee Exercises would help to strengthen the quadriceps muscle which is the key muscle. Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping a soft ball underneath the knee and you have to keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone.

I am 18 years old and I dont have my shoulders developed uniformly i. E, my left shoulder is slightly (i can see the difference not others) broader than right. When I was 5 years old my right hand got fractured. Just the part of the hand between elbow and wrist. How to overcome this problem. If I workout in gym etc what would be the consequence?

Dear, if others cannot make the difference in your shoulders then there should be very minimal difference. So not much to worry. If any problem still exists then consult a doctor working out is good for health.

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).

For leg pain, please follow the below advise: 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.

Rest. Take a break from your normal activities. Ice. Place an ice pack or bag of frozen peas on the sore area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day. Compression. Use a compression bandage to reduce swelling. Elevation. Elevate your foot to help reduce swelling.
