I am 20 years old I am having a serious pain in my knee from last 2 weeks what should I do please help me.

Physiotherapist, Noida
Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- 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. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

My right knee pains when i move my leg after keeping it in the same position for a long time. It has been a year for this, but now it pains more. Why?

Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

I Have an Back pain while I woke up in the morning for 20- 30 minutes. Why it is? And what is tha remedy for this?

Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Your back pain could be because of improper sleeping posture at night. Give hot water fomentation twice daily and that should solve your problem. Should the pain still persists meet a Physiotherapist who would assess you and teach you exercises. Wishing you good health and a speedy recovery.

Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Hi There are various causes for foot pain like planter fascities , achilies tendonitis etc. Self-management may include using ice, stretching, wearing proper footwear and altering training (exercise) methods. Ice should be applied for approximately 20 minutes. Try using a frozen bottle of water and gently rolling it under the arch and heel.

My mother is having a issue of pain in her left heel. If she takes rest of a while and after that when she walks she cannot walk properly for a while and after sometimes the pain stops and she gets normal. She is also suffering from hairfall problem. Please gave me solution for both the problem.

Heel pain in your mother's case is most likely due to plantar fascitis. The treatment mostly is conservative and lifestyle modifications to achieve maximum functionality with minimum pain. Follow these lifestyle changes religiously to get benefit. 1. Reduce body weight as obesity will aggravate the stress on heel. 2. Avoid exercises like running / walking on hard surfaces. Stop such activities when you start developing pain. 3. Roll your feet on bottle of cold water for 20 mins 4 times a day or can apply ice pack. 4. Use shoes with silicone sole inserts. 5. Do calf muscle and heel stretches daily. 6. Avoid prolonged standing or sitting. 7. Use night splint to keep foot flexed at night. Stop using it once pain is relieved. 8. Use analgesics like ibuprofen for decreasing pain and inflammation. With proper lifestyle changes as above 90 % patients have relief and functionality. Only 10% patients would require surgical intervention like plantar fascia release or gastrocnemius recession. For hair fall problem consult a trichologist or dermatologist.

Its not normal and also it doesn't need any intervention as of now but you have to keep and eye on it for its further progression if the listesis increses over next 3-6 months then it needs to be addressed.

Dear Ashish. I have read your question and understand your concern regarding heel and Knee pain. You are just 34! You have plantar fascitis problem on both heels. You will need to do stretching exercises for calf, ankle and toe. There are special exercises which will help you. Along with this, contrast bath will be helpful. For knees, you need some medicines and Knee exercises. It may be because of unaccustomed posture. You will get relief with stretching of knees and some modification is sitting.

Get X-ray or MRI done to rule out any structural joint abnormalities. Meanwhile, gentle massage over knees with lukewarm herbal pain relieving oils daily for about 15-20 minutes and hot fomentation afterwards will greatly help in subsiding the pain. Ayurveda’s Panchakarma offers specialized treatment of JANU BASTI for knee pains - these procedures would give strength to your knee and reduce the pain and stiffness. Regular oiling the joint will improve the lubrication also. Use knee caps over the joints and avoid over exertion of the joint. Avoid sitting crossed legs.
