Hi Sir, Treatment for Tear of posterior horns of medial meniscus? Can it be treated without operation?
Yes we can treat that without operation. If that won't lock your knee joint. Do strengthening exercise of knee and proprioception exercise.

I can't touch my toe on standing straight. It seems pain in my hamstring?
What to do.
Dear Lybrate user. Thanks for the question. I can understand. Symptoms of a hamstring strain usually consist of a sudden sharp pain at the back of the thigh. This can occur whilst sprinting or performing a fast stretching movement such as a high kick. Hamstring strains are graded 1, 2 or 3 depending on how bad they are. Usually athletes have grade 1 sort. I suggest you to consult a physician for assessing the condition. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user knee pain could be because of osteoarthritis, physiotherapy is the best option available depending on knee joint condition. If you are thinking about knee joint replacement after an xray - mri report please let me know because a pain less therapy has been introduced in india it is called stem cell. Initially you can go with the physiotherapy. Regards.

Mere ghutne me 5 saal se pain ho rha pahle ek ghutne me tha Ab dono me ho gya h please help me.
Knee pain can come from injuries including sprains, swollen or torn ligaments, meniscus or cartilage tears and runner's knee. Pain in both knees is more common with arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout or pseudo gout, usually later in life. You need to consult physio for better treatment. I advise you to treat this prob use quadriceps and hams exercises, and use medicine twin stem sachet, aloevera, salakhi, suth/guggal, calcium c3. You feel better and your prob solve asap.

Herniated Disc - How Surgery Can Help You?

Herniated Disc - How Surgery Can Help You?

The symptoms caused due to herniated disc can be very severe and can also cause a bit of disability. The disc of the spine is like a cushion and separates the set of bones on the backside. The discs are shock absorbers of the spine and are mainly composed of 2 parts, a soft jelly centre called the nucleus and a tough outer covering called the annulus.

Effects of Herniated Disk
A herniated or cracked disc is a severe condition and it seems to happen most commonly in the lower back.  It happens when a fraction of the soft centre gets pushed through the destabilized area due to degeneration, trauma or by putting pressure on the spinal cord. 

Nerves are located precisely at the back of every disc and are responsible for controlling everything in our body. While a disc gets herniated, the external covering of the disc tears and creates a bulge. The soft jelly gets shifted from the centre of the disk to the region where the damage has occurred on the disc. Most commonly, the bulge occurs in areas where the nerve is located and it causes strain on the affected nerve. It has been observed that individuals do not feel any painful sensations even if their disc gets damaged.

When is Surgery Recommended for Herniated Disc?
Surgery for herniated disc is recommended only after options like steroid injections, pain relievers, exercise and non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs do not work. If the pain persists even after these options, then it becomes important to go for surgery. There are certain risks involved in this surgery like infection, bleeding or nerve damage. 

There are chances that the disc may get ruptured again if it is not removed. If you are a patient suffering from degenerative disc disease, then there are chances that problem occurs in other discs. It is very important that a patient maintains healthy weight to prevent any further complications.

The main factor that increases the risk of herniated disc is excess body weight, which causes a lot of stress on the lower back. A few people become heir to a tendency of developing this condition. Even individuals with physically demanding jobs are prone to this condition. 

Activities like bending sideways, pushing, twisting, repetitive lifting can increase the risk of a herniated disk. At times, emergency surgery is also required to avoid paralysis in a patient. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
