Massage the calf muscles with herbal or eculyptus oil. Then try this simple but effective acupressure exercise. Press the point on the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from toe in the foot 20 times by pressing and releasing with a blunt edge of a pen. Further rotate your foot clockwise and anticlockwise 10 times. Massage your leg with both hands.

Your daily habits or age may be the root of your knee problems. Some common home care techniques for knee pain that control inflammation and help to break the inflammatory cycle are protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation, glucosamine supplement also may help.

Your grandpa is most probably are suffering from oa of knee. Knee surgery-total knee replacement (tkr) is quite safe & gives uniformly good results, in our hands. We have well equipped centers in delhi. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Surgery should be done when patient is still active & will be able to take benefit of surgery. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. Kindly show me x rays before a final decision can be taken. You will be thoroughly investigated before surgery is under taken. Risk in surgery is less than the risk in crossing road.

Knee Pain

M.SC. in Sports Injury, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Knee Pain
Knee pain usually occurs due to weak muscle around your knee joint. People who are doing daily brisk walks, jogging and running are more likely to get knee pain so for that they should reduce to thrice a week and the other days can do recumbent cycling, swimming or cross trainer (elliptical cycle).
This actually reduce the load exerted on your knees and will give some rest from impact which occur due to jogging or brisk walking. Regular icing after such strenuous activities will also the minimize the risk of injuries to the knee joint.

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. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Am suffered from diabetes last two last years joint pain problems in my knee also.

Am suffered from diabetes last two last years joint pain problems in my knee also.
Usually the diabetes has more of a insuline resistance than actual insuline deficiency. It is very common to have joint pain in diabetes, but here physiotherapy has great help. Physiotherapy, calcium supplement, vitamin B supplement are the first step to try. If it dosen't get relief than you can start homoeopathic medicine which not only relieve your joint pain but also improve your diabetes as well.

I m 19 year old boy. I m having pain in my left knee.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
I m 19 year old boy. I m having pain in my left knee.
When a person indulges in Vata-aggravating diet and lifestyle, then this aggravated Vata circulates ama in the channels of the body and deposits it in the joints causing pain. 1.. 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. 2.. 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. 3. 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 Knee joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling. Try it for 2 week .
