knee pain

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,

KNEE PAIN- HOW TO TAKE CARE

Wear and tear of body is inevitable. And joints are
the worst affected as we age, out of which the knees rule.
 
A popping sound with pain in the knee, swelling and inability to
put weight on the leg indicate a knee sprain or a tear. Fractures,
dislocations, cartilage injuries,arthritic changes or bursitis are
painful enough. But how to avoid knee injuries and pain? Knee pain
can improve with some good body mechanics like change in movement,
ergonomics, exercise and care.
 
1. Never ignore pain. Pain is one of the first warning signs that
something is amiss. After a few days of home treatment if the knee
pain worsens or does not improve it is time to call the doctor!
 
2. Get rest. Rest is a must if you are a very physically active
person. And all the more so if you are above 30.
 
3. Weight control is mandatory if your knees hurt. Being overweight
increases your chances of knee pain especially the arthritic one as
the excess load causes the degeneration of the cartilage. You can
try walking or a stationary bike for exercise without traumatising
the joints.
 
4. Too much of physical activity including strenuous exercises can
cost you your knees. Straining the body on the pretext of
weight loss, a sudden increase in the duration of the activity or a
rapid increase in the intensity are unwise. Always warm up with
stretches and cool down adequately.
 
5. If you have duck feet (walking with feet turned out) you are
more susceptible to knee pain.
 
6. Be careful while lifting weights as they are only bad for your
back but also for your knees. Bend carefully putting the knees back
and heels down. Put the weight on your muscles and off your knees.
 
7. Discard hard shoes but use soft breathing flexible shoes
recommended for the desired activity. 
 
8. Know that some cholesterol lowering drugs, antacids and the like
may cause knee pain.
 
Knee injuries need not remain forever. Time and rest can heal most
of them and not often do they call for surgeries.
 
 
Take care!
 
Wishing you good health,

Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also -- soak a washcloth in cool tap water wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase. Consult me for homeopathic treatment. Recommend me by clicking on recommend option and leave feedback.

Rheumatoid Arthritis - Ways It Can Be Treated!

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
Rheumatoid Arthritis - Ways It Can Be Treated!

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune condition wherein the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the linings of the joint. This condition affects both sides of the body including the eyes, hands and legs. Unlike the depreciating damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis causes a distressful swelling that consequently leads to bone deformity and even erosion. As such, it is one of the more important characteristics of the condition which distinguishes it from other forms of arthritis. It often leads to debilitating disabilities.

Risk factors and complications
Factors such as obesity, smoking, age (affects mostly after the age of 40) and many environmental factors increase the risk of Rheumatoid arthritis. In severe cases, rheumatoid arthritis can lead to a plethora of other conditions such as:

  1. Dry mouth and eyes
  2. Osteoporosis
  3. Abnormal body composition

Treatment
Blood and imaging tests will first be carried out. Based on such diagnosis, you may be advised medications such as steroids or Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). Now in case of severe pain, one would have to take to surgery. Varying surgeries work on different joints of the body and some of these include:

  1. Arthroplasty: This procedure replaces all or a part of the joint for instance, the knee or the hip.
  2. Arthroscopy: A procedure which helps pull out inflamed tissue or debris from the required joint with the help of light, small instruments.
  3. Cervical spinal fusion: Pressure on the median nerve is eased with this procedure.
  4. Hands and foot surgeries: These procedures help correct dysfunctional joints of the hands, fingers, legs and toes.
  5. Synovectomy: Synovectomy helps remove more intricate tissues which are inflamed or otherwise.

What to consider before you opt for one?
Although these various surgeries often restore almost-normal movements in the patient, they can only do so in two or possibly three joints. And of course, it goes without saying that you should consult with an orthopaedist orthopaedic surgeon) experienced in arthritis and joint surgeries before opting for such.

Pain in lower back region during sitting is caused due to weak paraspinal muscles and core muscles. You need to be examined first to ascertain the same and start physiotherapy in form of lower back and core strengthening exercises. Also you need some ergonomic training for precautions to be taken at work and at home in order to prevent the occurrence of back pain. A xray is also useful to rule out any bony (spine) abnormalities causing the pain.

When leg pain occurs after strenuous physical activity, you can simply apply cold compresses. This will help reduce the pain by numbing the affected area and control swelling and inflammation. 1. Wrap a few ice cubes (or a bag of frozen peas) in a thin towel. 2. Apply this pack on the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes, while keeping the leg (s) elevated. 3. Do this a few times a day. Note: do not apply ice directly on the skin, as it may cause frostbite.
