My mom has knee problem can knee replacement be trusted.

My mom has knee problem can knee replacement be trusted.
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually when I counsel my patients for a knee replacement surgery, I always see certain things and ask the patients few questions? - during examination and subsequent investigations like x rays, the alignment of the joint needs to be seen, so we have to see whether there is any fixed deformity or a coronal plane alignment, if it is very bad with compromised joint space, then definitely nothing apart from a surgery will work because no medicine can change alignment of a joint - also I need to know how much your mother can walk everyday and what are her analgesic requirements? is she able to do her day to day activities without too much pain, or is that a bother? kindly send me her latest x rays so that I can see and advise accordingly. 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.

I have backpain help me for this problem to solve please. Also please tell me what should I do to remove this backpain.
Dear lybrate user, 1) where exactly is the pain located? upper back / lower back 2) is it a radiating pain (the pain goes till the thigh or leg) or non-radiating (located only to one point) pain? 3) if radiating - consult a physiotherapist for diagnosis followed by treatment 4) if non radiating - go for hot fermentation twice a day (will help the muscles relax which were going for wear and tear because of over use). Perform back strengthening exercises to avoid relapse or further damage to the muscles. Regards!

I am 25 year old male and have backache for last 2 months. I have used pain relief ointment cream for couple of days but haven’t got any relief. What should I do now?

I am 25 year old male and have backache for last 2 months. I have used pain relief ointment cream for couple of days ...
Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain: -stop normal physical activity for the first few days. This will help relieve your symptoms and reduce any swelling in the area of the pain. -Apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. --While sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -Find a mattress with back support. A good mattress should provide support for the natural curves and alignment of the spine. Medium-firm mattresses usually provide more back pain relief than firm mattresses. -Do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back for the first 6 weeks after the pain begins. -Avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -Good posture plays a key role in your spine health, helping to prevent additional back and neck pain and even injuries to spinal structures. Try to be aware of your posture and make good posture part of your normal routine. -head up, shoulders back, rear tucked under -Stand and walk with correct posture -Sit with support -Lift and carry carefully -And finally, keep moving:-Maintaining a static position for too long—more than twenty or thirty minutes at a time—is hard on the back. Prolonged static posture can slowly deplete elasticity from the tissues. By simply moving—be it a change of position, a stretch, or a short walk—the tissue elasticity needed to protect your joints can be restored and the associated discomfort reduced. -Stretching and strengthening exercises are important. But, starting these exercises too soon after an injury can make your pain worse. -Some Physiotherapy treatment like IFT current can give you relief. -Consult a Physiotherapist for detail assessment and management of your back pain.

Renal calculi can be easily removed with HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES.. The MEDICINES have the power to break the stones to very minute sizes and helps to pass through urine without any pain.. Homoeopathic medicine doesn't contain side effects at all and also it helps to prevent surgery for kidney stones ...I here mention some of the MEDICINES which cure kidney stones or renal calculi.. 1. Apis 2. Berberis 3. Hydrangea. 4. Lycopodium.. etc.. But what dosage and how to repeat please consult me online...100% better results within 24 to 72 hrs..

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).
