Treat Chronic Pain

Pain can be musculoskeletal like back pain, shoulder pain or knee pain. Watch out to identify yours.

I am Dr. Siddharth VermaI deal with patients suffering from chronic pain. Chronic pain is any pain which is more than 12 weeks or three months in duration and if a patient is suffering from chronic pain they require special treatment and they require physician specially trained to treat the people who have chronic pain. So this pain can be musculoskeletal, then it may be back pain or the pain of the knee. There are various structures in the back which can give rise to the pain.

I'll tell you more about it if you see our skeleton, this is a model showing the back of a human and as we can see these are the vertebral bodies or the small bones which make up the human back, and these the yellow things, these are the nerves which are coming out of the small holes which are known as the foramen.And what you see here between these two bones is a disc and this is a portion of these two bones because when a person moves he actually bends, rolls place then all this moment like this. It occurs on this joint as you can see and this disc this help us to maintain this mobility.So now what happens is with growing age this can become bulging like you can see this red buzzing portion this compresses on this root which is coming out of here. This is what may lead to the pain there may be other mechanisms also and it is very essential that qualified pain physician actually evaluates you. If you have any back pain and then physician treats you accordingly.

So there are various equipment options which are available and ranging from drugs. So you can start with drugs and go to injections in the nerve roots and then we can further do pinhole surgery. It is like we can go through the needle to that and then gradually release the patient of his or her pain.Similarly, like back pain is the treatment for those suffering from knee pain. As we can see it's also 2 bonus and then instead of the disc we have this cartilage which is present here. Muscles slide this cartilage and this thing over here is your muscle which is coming over this knee joint. If this muscle is not strong enough or if the cartilage is damaged then you may have problems with your knee.

So what do we do is that if a person comes to us with the pain of the knee then we need to access a lot of ligaments. If you see it's a very complex and complicated joint if you see there are a lot of small ligaments and it is meniscal. There is cartilage so we have to analyze where the pain is coming from, once we analyze that then we prepare accordingly. We can start with drugs, we can use substances which help to form the cartilage, we can use Prolotherapy which is a new form of regeneration therapy which helps to regenerate cartilage, or we can numb those nerves which are actually carrying this pain.So you do not worry this will not lead to any weakness.

So musculoskeletal pain after revaluation can be treated and can be managed and to get rid of your pain or to know more you can simply visit my lybrate website.

Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take.

Steps Involved in Knee Replacement Procedure

M.CH. (Ortho), MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS

Steps Involved in Knee Replacement Procedure

Knee replacement is a procedure where the weight-carrying surfaces of knee joint are replaced surgically to ease the pain or any disability. People suffering from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis undergo knee replacement. All these conditions revolve around stiffness and painful knee. This surgery is usually performed on people aged over 50.

Surgery Types: 
Knee replacement is mainly of two main types:

  1. Total knee replacement where both the sides of knee joints are replaced
  2. Partial knee replacement where only single side of the joint is replaced

Procedure: In case of partial knee replacement with minimal invasion, a smaller incision, which is 3 to 5 inches, is required. This leads to minimal tissue damage and the surgeon can work between the fibres of the quadriceps muscles. Here, an incision through the tendon is not required. This may result in less pain, recovery time is reduced, and motion is better as scar tissue formation is less.

In total knee replacement, four steps are performed:

  1. Removal of damaged cartilage surfaces, which is at the ends of the femur and tibia, with a small quantity of underlying bone.
  2. Replacement with metal components, which help as a recreated surface of the joint
  3. Incision of knee cap with a resurface made of a plastic button, which is optional based on the case
  4. Insertion of a medical grade plastic spacer amid the metal components. This creates an effortless gliding surface.

After general or spinal anaesthesia, an incision of 8-12 inches is made in the front part of the knee. Joint part which is damaged is removed from the surface of the bones. The surfaces are then formed in a way to hold a metal or plastic artificial joint. The thigh bone shin as well as knee cap is attached to the artificial joint with either cement or a special material.

After Effects of the Procedure: After the surgery, patients may stay in a hospital for three to five days. Post surgery, notable improvement can be seen after a month or later. The patient is gradually relieved from pain with the construction of new gliding surface during surgery.

There will be slow progress in the movement. In the beginning, one may walk with a support of parallel bars and then with the help of crutches, walker, or cane. After full recovery in about six weeks, people can enjoy normal activities except running or jumping.

Presently, over 90% of total knee replacements function well even after 15 years of surgery. Hence, knee problem is no problem at all!

Hello lybrate user, back pain that is associated with day time sedentary jobs like computer professional s are associated with paraspinal muscle spasms. The best way to tackle this sort of pain is to do well spaced stretching exercises of the back, back extension exercises, using hot water bags to provide relief and avoiding stooping posture while sitting. Posture also plays a very important part in back pain, always maintain a straight posture while sitting. While getting up from the bed try to first go on your left or right side of the body and get up side ways. Avoid cruntches or sit-ups: they may increase the pressure on your back and may predispose to slip disc. Always maintain a healthy lifestyle in terms of regular brisk walking, meditation, eating healthy. P. S: try to avoid pain killers (analgesics) as much as possible as many are associated with side effects that you may not be aware of. Stay healthy. Stay happy.

1. Take one tablet of crocin pain relief sos after food upto a maximum of 3 tablets daily 2. Apply volini gel twice daily 3. Give warm compress locally 4. Take rest if you have recurrent attack of neck pain a) take x ray/mri cervical spine to exclude spondylitis and consult orthopedic specialist b) sometimes it could be due to bad sitting posture while reading or working on computer. Adopt proper sitting posture, put neck rest, use soft pillow while sleeping c) do physio therapy and neck exercise after consulting physiotherapist.

That might be due to knee pain or it might be due to ankle pain. Our suggestion would be to do hot water fermentation along with Cold (ice) therapy. You shall also keep a pillow under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Stiffness might have developed due to weakness of the ligaments & inflammed cartilage. Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping ball underneath the knee and keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee Pain in the right leg If you have leg pain pls check your body weight and your haemoglobin levels, as Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. My suggestion would be to wear MCR Chappals which will help you to prevent the weight falling on the If you have back pain while walking and standing first of all check your weight and your haemoglobin levels, as Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. My suggestion would be to wear MCR Chappals which will help you to prevent the weight falling on the back. Back. And also should check whether you have flat foot on the right leg that also might be the reason to have pain in one particular leg.
