You should avoid squatting on the floor if you have knee pain,also cross legged sitting should be avoided.You can apply some ointment like nise gel,also u can take a hot towel and cover your knee with it,do some normal exercises of the knee mainly static quadriceps ,any exercise which increases the pain should be avoided.See a doctor if in 2-3 days it doesn't get better.

I had a partial lateral menisectomy done in my right knee for posterior horn tear three months back. Is there any possible way to find out as to how much part of the lateral meniscus I have lost due to this menisectomy. My post operative MRI suggests lateral meniscus as appears to be normal.

After removal of meniscus it is most unlikely that it will grow again mri is the only solution to rule out the size of meniscus.

There is muscle spasm in your neck. Do hot fomentation twice regularly, avoid pillow, sleep on a hard bed. Visit your physiotherapist for examination & treatment at the starting of winters and take few sessions (5-10) to avoid spasm & revisit him if you feel pain again. He/she will teach you some basic stretching & strengthening exercises for your neck.

Hello, if there's pain through the back of your leg then you might have sciatica which is pinching of nerves between the vertebrae. Exercise to strengthen your core muscles would help you along with some postural exercises.

Lybrate-user ji for any pain due to accident you should consult a doctor to rule out fracture or any bone injury. If it is not there you can give rest to the affected part and take analgesics like ibuprufen or diclofenac sodium for about a week or so.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. See 2 years is enough time for any fracture to unite and implants can be safely removed if you wish to get t done. But I would like to see your latest x rays and a clinical pic so that I can see and then advise you regarding removal of implant. 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. Thanks & regards
