For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day.

There is mild fluids in the joint which acts as a lubricant and I will suggest you to avoid pickles and papads in your diet and drink a minimum of three litres of water per day

You can continue with omega-3 capsules.This problem is not related to diabetes. It could be OA knee which can be confirmed with X-ray of the knee joint.

Hi Doctor I have problem in my hand when I play badminton at morning daily their is soo much pain in my elbow and wrist

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am dr akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your complaints are focused on pain in elbow and wrist region and these have started only after you have started playing badminton. I would advise you for: - initial intensive ice packs - analgesic spray for application - short course of anti-inflammatory medications - cessation of playing for around 2 weeks let' s give it a try for 2 weeks, and if then it does not improve, then you let me know. Even your resumption after pain subsides has to be gradual. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

I am undergoing through joint pain (Arthritis) I consulted many doctors for it but all in vain. My pain still persists. Do I have to undergo an operation and what is Navigation machine associated with Operation? What difference does it makes if it is not operated by Navigation machine?

Is your age 22 years only? there are very very few indications for knee replacement at 22 years. Navigation machine associated operation is kind of surgery in which machine helps to decide bone cuts. Most important step in knee replacement surgery is ligament balancing. It is surgeons skill to perform surgery. Some surgeons prefer to use navigation system, some surgeons prefer to use conventional instruments and skills. Even navigation system may fail if not properly done and vice versa is possible. So surgeon should be well trained in performing surgery. Then it doesn't matter whether navigation system is used or not. I have seen navigation systems just lying inside operation theater and surgeon preferring conventional methods.

Check your serum calcium levels and get a whole body bone densitometry test done to rule out oesteporosis. Repeat your b12 and vit d tests also. With the reports, consult me privately. For the time being, take tab rumalaya forte 1-1-1 and apply mahanarayana taila to the affected part and give hot water fomentation. Perform neck exercises everyday in the morning and evening.

Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Swing 20 times morning and evenings. Go for a regular walk. Also control your weight properly to bring down the pain.

Pain legs after running is due to muscle cramps. Take plenty of fluids and multivitamins. Massage of calf before sleeping will help you a lot.

Apart from hot water what you also require is a good shoulder exercises programme wear good mobilization can be done for your shoulder and then after every session of exercises kindly use a cold pack for 20 minutes. This will reduce swelling and will decrease pain. You could progress slowly after 10 days to theraband exercisea and resisted exercises gain which will be told by the physio. By your physiotherapists.

Herniated disks or bone spurts in the vertebrae of the neck may become the reason behind severe neck pain. They sometimes take too much space and compress the nerves branching out from the spinal cord.
