Sir, on screening it is clear that I have ankylosing spondylitit so I wanna know that is it completely curable or not ?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. As is a chronic inflammatory joint disease which has a genetic predisposition mainly affecting spine and hips ( axial skeleton). I am not aware of any permanent cure for it but you are best advised to get in touch of a rheumatologist as it requires a long term supervised care. The disease process can be kept under control by a new class of medicines which are injectable but expensive. Also regular physical therapy with adequate calcium and vitamin d intake is important for management of pathology. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

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. 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.

Health Tip Knee Pain and Exercise Therapy

Exercise science or therapy plays a very vital role in controlling the pain and to reduce symptoms. The foremost exercises are to strengthen the quadriceps and hamstring muscles, which could be done by keeping a pillow or small bedsheets preferably cotton beneath knee and pressing hard for 5 to 7 seconds and repeating the same for 15 times resting for 3 second in every repitations (see the pic attached). And hamstring muscle strengthening by lifting straight into 90% without bending the knees and holding the same for 3 to 5 seconds as possible and repeating it for 10 to 15 times for one duration, better to do for twice daily in stipulated time regularly, along with calcium rich and vitamin d3 in sufficlient level.

 

For pain even hot and cold water fomentation for thrice a day for 5 days regularly can be given to receive locally, for worst pain management physiotherapy interferential therapy (ift) and vacuumtherapy can be given for 7 to 10 days followed by strengthening exercise under guidance from physiotherapist

Back pain could be due to bad posture or low vitamin d levels in a majority of cases so learn spinal extension exercises from a physiotherapist and do them upto 3 times a day 20 mins each. Get your vitamin d and uric acid levels done fasting and revert back with reports.

Hi, Mother is facing problem with thumb trigger. Its paining. Medicine and massage is being taken suggested by doctor. Do she need thumb splint for more comfort since the part is paining.

Hi,
Mother is facing problem with thumb trigger. Its paining. Medicine and massage is being taken suggested by doctor...
Trigger finger happens when tendons in the finger or thumb become inflamed. Tendons are tough bands of tissue that connect muscles and bones. Together, the tendons and muscles in the hands and arms bend and straighten the fingers and thumbs. The first step for treatment is to rest the finger or thumb. Your doctor may put a splint on the hand to keep the joint from moving. If symptoms continue, he/she may prescribe drugs that fight inflammation, such as ibuprofen. Doctor may also recommend an injection of a steroid into the tendon sheath. If the trigger finger does not get better, your mother may need surgery.

If the knee pain in interfering with your day to day activities and you want to maintain an active life, then certainly you have much to benefit from surgery. A total knee replacement is safe today and does very well in terms of giving a pain free, active and stable knee joint.
