Doctor. Since two years knee pain is there we took consult from doctor but no relief. please help.
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).

Have extreme pain in my knee. So please tell me some adequate ways to get rid of it.
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.. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. 4.. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. 5.. 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 different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

I am 27 years old. I am suffering from hip arthritis since last 10 to 12 years. What should be best treatment for me so that my life could be normal?

Hi lybrate-user. As you have said you have hip arthritis I consider that you got diagnosed for it. If not get the check up and investigations done. Treatment depends on the findings of the radiographs and the integrity of joint. As you are telling it's 10-12 years don't delay more.

Hi lybrate user, rheumatoid arthritis (ra) mainly presents as pain, morning stiffness & deformity (at advanced stage) of joints involved. Joints may vary from person to person such as small joints to big joints. There are few basic & few advanced test. Basic tests include ra factor (which may or may not be positive, if it is positive it is called seropositive ra, if negative its called seronegative ra), crp (which is raised in most of inflammatory disease), xray of involved joints & advanced test is anti ccp (which is more specific than ra factor, but even this test can not have 100 % specificity). We clinician put diagnosis depending upon history, symtoms, clinical presentation, positivity of ra factor or anticcp. Hope it helps.

Get x ray done. Wear knee cap open patella. Start with physiotherapy sessions and learn exercise for knee joint. Take calcium and methylcobalamine supplement with glucosamine for three months minimum.
