Knee Replacement Education

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Pune
Knee Replacement Education
The knee has to support the weight of the body as you run, walk, jump and climb stairs. The stress on the knee means that knees are more frequently injured than other joints.

Knee replacement surgery can make a dramatic difference for those with severely painful knee joints. More than 90 percent of individuals who have total knee replacements report significant pain relief, improved mobility and better quality of life.

In the past, patients between 60 and 75 years of age were considered to be the best candidates for total knee replacement, but improvements in artificial knee technology and surgical techniques have made knee replacement an option for both elder patients as well as younger patients.

In a traditional total knee replacement, the damaged areas of the femur, tibia and kneecap are removed and replaced with prostheses. Patients whose joint damage is limited to one area of the joint may be candidates for partial or unicompartmental replacement.

Dengue has four different strains. So if you get infected by one strain type then the possibility is that you can get affected again by a different strain. However this time around the dengue outbreak is not as worse as compared to last year. Plain viral fever is on the rise and mimics symptoms of dengue. Get yourself tested properly to rule out all possibilities. Take plenty of fluids.

Hello Sir I have a back bone problem tell me the precautions to how to clean my problem.

Hello Sir I have a back bone problem tell me the precautions to how to clean my problem.
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket . And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back . you may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * Gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * Surya Namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * In diet vegetable protein of cereal , B complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. SPRING BEDS, FOLDING BEDS OR THICK MATRESS ARE HARMFUL Use no pillow under the head. DO HOT FOMANTATION. Paracetamol 250mg OD & SOS x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab OD x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again.. Do not ignore .It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Probably a disl prolapse instead which is giving pressure symptoms (pain radiation to leg) your both screning tests are negative and you have not being infected by tubercular bacterism so better think otherwise and consult an orthopedic surgeon.

Hi as your job involves sitting for prolonged hours, there are chances of pains and numbness in your arm and neck. It needs examination to check which muscles are involved. However its better for you to take repeated breaks during your work preferably every half an hour, doing some simple stretches, correcting your working posture, applying warm water for 15 mins twice a day. If the pain doesnt resolve, its good to check with a physiotherapist on a private consultation.

She is having numbness in her hand along with pain at left-hand starting from shoulder?

She is having numbness in her hand along with pain at left-hand starting from shoulder?
Numerous conditions can cause pain, numbness and tingling in the left arm. It may indicate a myocardial infarction, or heart attack. However, other conditions may be more likely to cause left-sided arm pain and numbness. The most common cause is degenerative joint disease in the cervical spine (neck). Try few home remedies for relief: - improve your circulation by eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Massage your left arm before bed - improving your posture to reduce pinching on your nerves can avoid left arm pain. -rest your left arm and avoid any heavy physical activities. Your doctor may recommend pain relievers medicine to you. A cold compress can also help relieve the pain (note: if you have poor circulation, do not use cold compress). -rest and pain relievers can help treat tendinitis. Alternating hot and cold therapy is another effective way to relieve the pain. If you're first injured, applying an ice pack for the first 3 days or so can help reducing swelling by numbing pain and constricting blood vessels. After that, applying heat can increase blood flow, which may promote healing. - avoid strenuous or repetitive activities that cause pain. If conservative treatment does not help, consult your doctor/physiotherapist. In most cases, conditions causing these symptoms are not a medical emergency and respond well to conservative care methods. It is best to see a doctor/physiotherapist immediately if your pain is severe and of sudden onset. Best wishes.

Orthopedist,
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to have a persistent back pain as a health issue. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
