Age 37 irregular cycle put on weight by 30 kgs after 2 nd delivery, knee pain, ankle pain, burning sensation in foot. No thyroid, sugar, B. P.

Irregular cycle can be a result of hormonal imbalance caused due to weight gain. And knee pain and other symptoms are related to that as well. So the main treatment here is weight loss. One liter of warm water daily, low fat high fiber diet and 30 minutes of rigorous physical activity is a must. An oil called brihat saindhavadi thailam is available in all ayurveda stores. This is wonderful medicine cause it serves the dual purpose of weight loss and pain management. Heat this oil, apply all over the body and have a warm water bath. Do this twice or thrice a week for great relief.

Do you have a dry cough or productive cough? if you get cough only during sleep then it may be due to obstruction. Try to change your pillow. Of course you have to stop smoking to avoid future complications. Try taking cinnamon tea regularly which controls cough.

Lower back pain you can do it this exercise, 1 Lying on your back, bend your right knee into your chest and place a strap or rolled-up towel around the ball of your foot. Straighten your leg toward the ceiling. Press out through both heels. If the lower back feels strained, bend the left knee and place the foot on the ground. Hold for 3-5 minutes and then switch to the left let for 3-5 minutes. 2…. Lying on your back, bend your knees into your chest and bring your arms out at a T. As you exhale lower your knees to ground on the right. Keep both shoulders pressing down firmly. If the left shoulder lifts, lower your knees further away from the right arm. Hold for 1-2 minutes each side I hope you will fit and fine.

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.

I had a legament tear in my left knee and was on treatment for the past 45 days, till I am not able to fully bend my leg.

Most probably you would need arthroscopic knee surgery. It is a very safe procedure in our hands with uniformly good results. We have very good well equipped centers in delhi. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Don't ignore it lest it become beginning of a bigger problem.

For weight loss. Cause of weight gain need to be confirmed first. Then as per cause treatment will be decided. Mostly for weight loss patients need to do exercise. Diet modification. Stress reduction. Plenty of oral fluids. But to make a definitive plan of care to a particular patient.

I am 33 yrs old male I have partial tear of anterior cruciate ligament, joint effusion noted, mucoid degeneration /tear of posterior horn of medial meniscus. Is there any treatment without surgery.

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
How does it effect u, partial tear, if it less then grade 2, then it can be left alone, rather the medial meniscus tear which you have is more problematic, if you can near the pain, and your knee doesn't lock while standing from sitting. Medical treatment can be sought, otherwise go for surgery.

Why to Do a Total Knee Replacement When Partial Knee Replacement Is Enough

M.S. Orthopedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Ahmedabad
Why to Do a Total Knee Replacement When Partial Knee Replacement Is Enough

Partial knee replacement is a surgery in which only one, that is an affected side of the knee is replaced. This is a very helpful surgery for young patients who are very young to undergo a total knee replacement. The surgery has many advantages over total knee replacement surgery.

The surgery is small , the incision is small. The knee cap is not dislocated during surgery. Post operative recovery is smooth. The chances of medical complications are less. The chances of infection are half. The natural proprioception is maintained as the native ACL ligament is preserved.
