First we have to see what's the reason for pain. Then we can advice you treatment. It can be meniscus injury and ligament injury. Get MRI of knee at best centre with 3 tesla machine. This will give details of pathology. Then treatment can be advised.

Suffering from Osteoarthritis since 4-5 years. Pain in both knee. Could not squat. should I go for Radio Frequency Therapy. Is this is a curable treatment or temporary pain relief?

its only a temporary treatment option. However you can try all these to delay your knee replacement, because u are only 43 and knee replacement done at a very young age doesnt last longer.

I'm 29 years old, male. I had met two wheeler accident, my left leg tibia bone fractured and nailing, inserted 2 years before. Actually my tibia bones bridged, its k ican l remove nailing or leave as it is.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

Rods (nail) from the fractured bones must be removed only after the fractures have united beyond doubt. It must be undertaken at fully equipped centers. Nail (rod) removal at times becomes very difficult. We have good centers in delhi. If you wish it can be arranged in delhi.

If a person of 76-77 years old is suffering from initial stages of goitre, is surgery at this age will be helpful? The person is also having creatinine problems. I mean higher level of creatinine. Please help.

I will not prefer surgery at this age when creatinine is also high, until there is evidence of malignancy in thyroid.

I have back pain. Cold fever and legs are also paining. Can not even walk properly.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
I have back pain. Cold fever and legs are also paining. Can not even walk properly.
I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.
