I am 20 year old female and since 2 years I experience pain in my left knee and left feet after I walk or stand for a very long period of time.(I wear 1-2" heels since 2 years) Also, I sometimes experience pain in left ear after a shower, cold weather or exposure to sun. Does these two have a connection? Should I visit a doctor?

Hi lybrate-user, Pain in your left knee and left foot, at your age of 20 is can be due to so many reasons for knee and foot pain in your age. Knee and foot pain has lot to do with age, lifestyle and physical activity level. You wear high heels on both the sides but why it hurts on the left side only. Many people wear high sandals but they don't have knee pain, especially knee pain. In your case reasons can be many, like lower limb alignment, flatfeet, so many other unilateral structural and pathological joint conditions for knee and feet. Which needs proper workup with detailed history, skilled and professional clinical examination like exact location of pain and nature of pain, basic Xrays to conclude the exact diagnosis to treat the condition. And you ear pain may (all left) or may not be be related need thorough workup. Yes you should visit an orthopedist.

Popping sound came from my knee when I squat and I have no pain in my knees so why these sound came? How to stop it.

Popping sound came from my knee when I squat and I have no pain in my knees so why these sound came? How to stop it.
The popping sound in the knees is due to the spasms of ligaments in the knee joint. This is an early sign of degenerative changes in the knee joints or possibility of ligament injury. Try to do a simple but effective remedy of warm oil massage and hot water bath to the knee every day for at least fifteen days. Also try to do stretching exercises of legs.

Knee Pain - How Physiotherapy Can Heal It?

Knee Pain - How Physiotherapy Can Heal It?

Knee pain or injuries are very common and have numerous causes. Knee pain can emerge from delicate tissue wounds like ligament sprains and muscle strains. Bone conditions like knee joint pain, Osgood Schlatters, and biomechanical dysfunction can also cause knee pain. Treatment can include basic knee mobilization techniques, taping, massages or knee strengthening exercises completely through a careful recovery method after knee replacement or reconstruction.

Physiotherapy can help you overcome the pain and increase your strength and flexibility. A physiotherapist can suggest you a number of treatments and also help you understand your issue and get you back to your everyday routine. Physiotherapists are said to be successful in getting rid of the source of the knee pain by diagnosing a cause. This includes tightness around the knee and treating it with stretching and exercises.

Following are some of the exercises a physiotherapist might generally recommend for knee pain:

  1. Hamstring stretch: Stretching keeps you flexible and increases your scope of movement, or how far you can move your joints in different directions. It additionally helps you reduce your chances of injuries and pain. Continuously warm up with a five minute walk first. Lie down when you are prepared to stretch your hamstring. Circle a bed sheet around your right foot, use the sheet to pull the leg up and hold for twenty seconds and then lower the leg. Repeat twice and switch legs.
  2. Calf stretch: Use a chair for balance. Bend your left leg. Step back with your right leg and gradually straighten it behind you. Press your left heel toward the floor. You should feel the stretch in the calf of your back leg. Hold for 20 seconds. Repeat twice and then switch legs.
  3. Straight leg raise: It helps build muscle strength to give support to the weak joints. Lie on the floor. Twist your left knee, foot on the floor. Keep the right leg straight, toes pointed up. Tighten your thigh muscles and raise your right leg.
  4. Quad set: With these, you don't raise your leg. Just tighten the thigh muscles, also called the quadriceps, of one leg at once. Begin by lying on the floor. Keep both legs on the ground, loose. Flex and hold the left leg tense for five seconds and then relax. Do three sets of ten repetitions. Switch legs after every set.
  5. Cushion squeeze: This move strengthens your legs from the inside so that they can support the knees. Lie on your back, both knees facing inwards. Place a cushion or a pillow between the knees. Press your knees together, squishing the cushion between them. Hold for five seconds and then relax. Do three sets of ten repetitions. Switch legs after every set.
  6. Heel raise: Stand tall and hold the back of a seat for support. Lift your heels off the ground and rise on the toes of both feet. Hold for three seconds. Gradually lower both heels to the ground. Do three sets of ten repetitions. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 23 years old. But my right knee pains a lot. I tried lots of ointment What could it be?
Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury or some other medical conditions including arthritis, patellar tendinitis, acl injury, knee bursitis, torn meniscus, gout and infections. Try some home remedies for your pain- - ice is useful for the control of pain and swelling. It can be applied to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. The swollen knee should be elevated above the level of the heart while icing. -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting jogging aerobics, dancing playing sport specific exercises will help you improve range of motion, strength, and endurance. It is especially important to focus on strengthening and stretching your quadriceps since these muscles are the main stabilizers of your kneecap. Core exercises may also be recommended to strengthen the muscles in your abdomen and lower back. Also maintaining a healthy body weight to avoid overstressing your knees are very important. -a full history of your problem should be taken and your movements assessed by a physiotherapist. Best wishes.
