I am suffering from knee pain in my both legs. Suggest some help. It pains when I make my legs straight.
I am 25 years old female. Since 2 days I feeling very tired and feeling very week. I have got a pain in my right arm. And I feel very sleepy. What would be the problem.
Most of us may not be aware, but the knee is the largest joint in the human body and contributes the maximum to a person’s physical movement from one place to another. The knees play a significant role in a variety of movements including squatting, supporting the weight, running, kneeling, sitting, etc.
Whether it is a severe accident, osteoarthritis that set in with age, or other reasons, the result could be stiff, painful knees. The first line of treatment would be exercise, physiotherapy, and medications. However, if these do not work, then surgical treatment is the choice. Though usually it is reserved for people over the age of 50, there could be exceptions.
Given the number of functions it is involved in, when a serious procedure like knee replacement is being considered, the pain that the person would go through and the recovery time are two important parameters to address. It is best that the patient has a detailed discussion with the doctor and gets all doubts clarified. This will help both the patient and the doctor have realistic and practical expectations about what to expect after the surgery.
So, when pain and stiffness make knee replacement inevitable, prepare for it. The following sequence outlines what happens right from surgery to recovery.
Under general anesthesia, the damaged portion of the knee is removed, and a prosthesis (metal or plastic) is used to replace the removed portion.
Hospital stay can range from 3 to 5 days.
In about a month, the patient will have remarkable recovery, with almost no pain.
Though not advisable, most patients would be able to stand and do basic movement on the day of surgery.
Begin walking with the support of parallel bars and continue using cane/walker/crutches for the first few days to avoid overload on the knees.
With proper support, walking is possible in 3 to 5 days. Continue using a cane for the next few weeks to strengthen the knee.
Schedule a postoperative visit in the 4th to 6th week after surgery.
Draw up an exercise routine with your physiotherapist.
Driving should be possible, once you are off pain medications, as these can make you drowsy.
Knee replacement is almost magical as in the long run (10 years postoperatively), there is a good 98% chances of success.
Having said this, it is important to remember each person responds differently to the procedure and therefore treatment/rehabilitation is completely personalized.
I have a back pain means opposite to my chest in back I can not turn my hands 360 why when I throw ball regular so my hand start to pain very much.
Loss of muscle strength is a feature of AS. Muscles weaken owing to postural deformity and inactivity and the associated pain.
Strengthening of the anti-gravity muscle groups and abdominal muscles is important to maintain an erect posture, and it enables everyday activities to be undertaken with greater ease. Example of extensor muscle groups are the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine extensors and glutei.
Exercises can be made harder by extending the lever arm using gravity as a resistance or by adding weights. Strengthening of other important muscle groups such as lumbar side flexors and thoracic rotators should not be omitted.
These particular muscle groups can be effectively strengthened in the hydrotherapy pool. Strengthening exercises are held for several seconds and repeated at least three times.
1.SUPINE WITH HANDS HOLDING THE RAIL
Make sure that the neck is supported in a neck float and push the occiput into the water during the exercise. Squeeze a medium-sized ring tightly around the hips or have a woggle or polystyrene floats under the buttocks to keep them elevated.
Hold the rail to fix the trunk but not so tight that it aggravates the shoulders and neck.
2.LUMBAR HIP EXTENSORS
A.With straight knees, take both heels down towards the bottom of the pool(hip and lumbar spine extension)
B. Put a float behind the heel of one foot and take that foot down in the water until the foot is just under water. Take the other leg down in the water as far as possible and back up. Keep both knees straight.
3. LUMBAR SIDE-FLEXORSS
Wing the legs as far as possible to each side, side-bending at the waist and keeping knees straight and the pelvis in neutral.
4.HIP ABDUCTORS AND ADDUCTORS
Take the legs apart into abduction and back together again. Keep knees straight.
Bend the knees to 90 degrees, put a float under the soles of the feet and
keep hips in neutral. Keep the knees just under the surface of the water, while
swinging the feet up towards the surface of the water to each side.
