Few weeks ago I had a bad hit on my right side ribs while playing football. The pain was very severe. It happened to reduce later on but I have noticed that it still persists during some particular muscle movement related to right side of my chest. This is as severe that I had to stop breathing for a moment. Is the pain related to my lungs or muscle? How can I get over it?

I am having knee pain for two years. And due to heavy dosage I am suffering from ulcer also.
Hello lybrate-user knee pain could be a sign of early osteo arthritis. You should start with quadricep strengthening exercises along with life style changes such as weight loss avoiding squatting and cross legged sitting. Do get a plain X-ray done of your knees and also start wearing knee cap. Any medication can be prescribed only on seeing the condition of the knee.

Every time patient comes with the back problem, they ask for instant relief. But they often forgets that analgesic medicine are for short term. And pain is only a symptom not a disease or disorder. Our Approach towards a problem should be appropriated and well directed. It must ADDRESS the origin of pain that is cause of pain. I suggest you to go to a Good Physiotherapy Clinic. They have pain relieving modalities also. In addition they will guide you about your posture and suggest you Exercises which will help you in a LONG RUN. Feel free For further guidance. Regards.

Causes of Knee Pain and Ways to Deal With It

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics, Fellow In Joint Replacement , Fellow In Arthroscopy
Orthopedist, Hyderabad
Causes of Knee Pain and Ways to Deal With It

The knee joint is made up of several elements including the knee cap, meniscus, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and muscles. Damage to any part of the knee can cause chronic pain.

What can cause knee pain:

Fractures: These are caused by the breaking up of the kneecap due to falls or collisions.

ACL Injuries: Caused due to the tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament (that connects the femur and the shinbone). Especially common in sportspersons such as footballers or basketball players.

Meniscus tears: The meniscus or the rubber-like cartilage (that acts as a shock absorber) can be torn by sudden jerks or excess pressure.

Arthritis: The chief cause of lingering knee pain, arthritis itself can be of a number of types.

  • Osteoarthritis, which is a result of deterioration of cartilages due to wear and tear
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis, an inflammatory chronic disorder
  • Septic Arthritis, causing pain, swelling and redness.
  • Gout caused due to the development of uric acid crystals in the joints

How to deal with it:

  • Exercise: Moderate to intense exercise is prescribed for one and all. This, of course, depends on one's overall health and age. If you are already suffering from joint pain, then you may want to go easy on the exercise with a focus on building muscle strength and foundation. If you are healthy, then some amount of daily exercise as a routine will keep those knees in prime working condition and well lubricated as well. Inactivity and a sedentary lifestyle can affect the knees very badly.
  • Dealing with Load: Losing weight is an important factor as carrying around extra pounds and kilograms can be detrimental for your knees in the long run. Your knee is not equipped to handle the excessive weight. It already supports three to five times your weight when you get up and walk around or indulge in some mild jogging. One must be careful of those extra pounds to take the load off the knee and keep it from falling prey to damage.
  • Do not Ignore: Warning signals such as chronic or acute knee pain should not be ignored. Remember to consult a doctor or an orthopaedic specialist to find out if you have contracted an infection or if you may have suffered a fracture due to an injury.

Ligament Injuries

The ligaments around the knee are strong. However, sometimes they can become injured. They may be stretched (sprained), or sometimes torn (ruptured). A ligament rupture can be partial (just some of the fibres that make up the ligament are torn) or complete (the ligament is torn through completely). The majority of knee ligament injuries are sprains and not tears and they tend to settle down quickly.

ACL injury and other ligament injuries can be caused by:

  • Twisting your knee with the foot planted
  • Getting hit on the knee
  • Extending the knee too far
  • Jumping and landing on a flexed knee
  • Stopping suddenly when running
  • Suddenly shifting weight from one leg to the other

These injuries are common in soccer players, football players, basketball players, skiers, gymnasts, and other athletes.

Treatment

  1. Rest the knee
  2. Ice your knee to reduce pain and swelling
  3. Compress your knee
  4. Elevate your knee on a pillow when you're sitting or lying down
  5. Wear a knee brace to stabilise the knee
  6. Practise stretching and strengthening exercises if they are recommended

For severe collateral ligament tears, you may need surgery to attach the ligament back to the bone if it was pulled away, or to the other part of the ligament if it was torn in the middle.

Meniscus Tear
A meniscus tear is a common knee injury. The meniscus is a rubbery, C-shaped disc that cushions your knee. Each knee has two menisci (plural of meniscus)-one at the outer edge of the knee and one at the inner edge. The menisci keep your knee steady by balancing your weight across the knee. A torn meniscus can prevent your knee from working right.

A meniscus tear is usually caused by twisting or turning quickly, often with the foot planted while the knee is bent. Meniscus tears can occur when you lift something heavy or play sports. As you get older, your meniscus gets worn. This can make it tear more easily.

Treatment may include:

  1. Rest, ice, wrapping the knee with an elastic bandage, and propping up the leg on pillows
  2. Physical therapy
  3. Surgery to repair the meniscus
  4. Surgery to remove part of the meniscus

If the pain is mainly due to cold, it simply means that your vayu dosha is increased. Contact a panchakarma centre near you & undergo vasti karma, abhyanga & swedana. This will give relief. Also start having milk boiled with garlic, turmeric & cow ghee. This will be very good for u.

Severe knee pain at your age is commonly due to osteoarthritis which means degeneration of joint cartilage causing friction between joint surfaces, leading to pain and stiffness. Lifestyle modifications and physical therapy are important treatment aspects to maintain functionality. 1. Knee stretching and strengthening exercises to improve knee strength. 2. Avoid jogging or physical activity that increases knee pain. But absolute rest is not advised. Engage in activity like swimming or walking, but perform activity which is painless 3. Application of analgesic cream over knee and warm fomentation before exercises. Apply cold pack after exercises 4. Weight loss if obese. 5. Simple analgesics like paracetamol when pain is present. 6. When pain or disability is significant, viscoelastic injection or PRP injection inside the knee joint is helpful. I). Injections of Viscoelastic substance or artificial synovial fluid into knee joint. This decreases friction in joint space ii). Injections of Platelet rich plasma derived from patients own blood into the knee joint. This regenerates the knee joint. Iii). In patients with severe pain, genicular nerve block can be given to decrease pain. For above treatment consult a pain specialist. 7. In advanced cases Knee replacement is the only option.

I have joint pain and also ankle and neck pain. Please consult me something to resolve it.

I have joint pain and also ankle and neck pain. Please consult me something to resolve it.
Try some remedies for joint pain: -ice packs can be used to soothe hot, swollen joints. -heat packs help to relax tense, tired muscles. -splinting of swollen or painful joints may be helpful, a physiotherapist or an occupational therapist (ot) may provide temporary splints for you. -pace yourself: overdoing things can increase your pain, but so can not doing enough. Your physiotherapist can advise you on increasing your activity level at a rate you can cope with and on finding the right balance between rest and activity. -take regular graded exercise: graded exercise starts slowly and increases in small steps. This will help you to strengthen your muscles and joints and increase your fitness. Improving your general fitness and stamina will help you to increase your activity level without increasing your pain. -mobilising, stretching and strengthening: your physiotherapist will assess your muscle strength and the range of movement in your joints, and advise on techniques and exercises so you can keep your joints working as well as possible. Best wishes.
