This could be due to oa knee &/or obesity. X rays of both knee joints (digital) physiotherapy along with medicines will help. Do knee exercises. It may have to be further investigated rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with a soft bedding on it. Any way take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days caldikid plus (mankind) 1 tab odx10days you will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Don't ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

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. 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.

Hi Thanks for your query and welcome to Lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from Fortis hospital, New Delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. 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. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena Consultant Orthopaedics Fortis Hospital, New Delhi

Use soft medium sized pillow while sleeping. Perform neck exercises for 10 mins in the morning and evening regularly.

Common Causes and Prevention of Osteoporosis

What is osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a disease concerning the bones. Decreased strength of the bones poses a risk for them to break. Osteoporosis is very common among older people, whose bones become brittle with age. The most common bones affected by this disease include the backbone, forearm bones and the hip bone. There are no such symptoms until a broken bone occurs. The bones weaken to such an extent that a break may happen in case of very minor stress. Usually, a broken bone is followed by chronic pain and the disability to perform daily activities. Surveys show that 15% of white people in their 50s and 70% of white people in their 80s are affected by osteoporosis.

What are the common causes and symptoms of osteoporosis?

  1. May occur due to the lowering of the 'peak bone mass index'.
  2. In women, bone loss increases after menopause stage due to lowering down of estrogen level.
  3. Also occurs because of another disease or previous treatments. This includes alcoholism, surgical ovary removal, hyperthyroidism, anorexia or any form of kidney disorder.
  4. Anti-seizure medicines, chemotherapy, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and taking of performance-enhancing drugs like steroid increase the bone loss rate.
  5. Lack of regular exercise may lead to osteoporosis.
  6. Osteoporosis is defined as a 'bone density of 2.5 standard deviations below than that of a young adult'.
  7. Osteoporosis is hereditary in nature. People having a family history of osteoporosis are at a high risk of getting the disease.
  8. More than thirty genes are linked with osteoporosis development.
  9. If you have had a fracture before, you are at a risk of a repeat.
  10. Early menopause in women is also responsible for osteoporosis.
  11. People with a small structure and body build are at a risk of getting osteoporosis.
  12. Protein and vitamin deficiency makes your bones weak and makes you vulnerable to osteoporosis.
  13. Phosphoric acid present in soft drinks is another threat, which may cause the disease.
  14. People suffering from malnutrition are likely to get osteoporosis.
  15. Over replacement of L-Thyroxine may lead to osteoporosis.
  16. Use of heparin and warfarin for a long time decreases the bone density.

How can Osteoporosis be prevented?
The best way to avoid getting osteoporosis in the future is to maintain a preventive lifestyle.

  1. Exercise regularly
  2. Indulge in natural calcium sources
  3. Maintain intake of vitamin D and K
  4. Do not smoke and consume alcohol
  5. Don't undertake stressful physical activities
  6. Go for regular health checkups
  7. Stay fit and stay away from obesity

Osteoporosis is a disease you must stay away from. It leaves you physically incapable and unfit.

Exercises are of course of paramount importance together with correcting deficiencies and making your lifestyle more active. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Your knee pain is due to old ligament tear which causes early osteoarthritis (OA) of knee. There is no magic drug to reduce your weight without exercise and diet chart! Cut down on your calories, burn calories as much as you can and consult a Rheumatologist for your ligament injury and assessment of OA.

Hello lybrate user, - if pain is more than 6 months then take x-ray to rule out the disc or bone involvement - for now apply mahanarayana taila and take hot fomentation to relive the pain - after investigation you can consult and can take panchakarma treatment which is required for you. Thank you.
