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).

You must be having a ligament year. At your age, the ligament is necessary for stability of the knee especially when running, jumping, climbing steps and fast walking. I suggest strongly that you take mri of the knee to confirm the torn ligament. If the ligament is torn, undergo ligament reconstruction by keyhole surgery. This will restore stability in your knee and prevent further injuries to your knee joint.

MOST PROBABLY YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM OA OF KNEE. Knee surgery-TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT (TKR) is quite safe & gives uniformly good results, in our hands. We have well equipped center in DELHI. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Surgery should be done when patient is still active & will be able to take benefit of surgery. Do not ignore .It could be beginning of a serious problem. Kindly show me x rays before a final decision can be taken. You will be thoroughly investigated before surgery is under taken. Risk in surgery is less than the risk in crossing road. The cost of surgery varies from hospital to hospital. You make up your mind. I will accommodate you somewhere or other,

Towel Hamstring Stretch Lie on the back, supporting the thigh with the hand or with a towel wrapped around it. Slowly straighten the knee until a stretch is felt in the back of the thigh, trying to get the bottom of the foot to face the ceiling, one leg at a time. Hold the position initially for 10 seconds, and gradually work up to 20 to 30 seconds. Seated Hamstring Stretch While sitting at the edge of a chair, straighten one leg in front of the body with the heel on the floor. Then, sit up straight and try pushing the navel towards the thigh without leaning the trunk of the body forwards. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds Repeat 3 times for each leg.

For cold and cough, you need proper care. Avoid cold exposure. Cover yourself properly in this cold weather. Avoid having anything cold, food or any beverage. If the problem persists, you will require medicines. For knee pain, you need physiotherapy, cover your knees so that it remains warm. For dizziness, take healthy food. You may require multi vitamins.

I am 51 years old, at menopausal stage. Sometimes feel hungry even after eating full meal and sometimes don't feel hungry at all because of which my weight gets added easily. I am 80 kgs though I walk everyday for minimum 1 hour a day on week days and 2 hours a day on weekends. I doubt that the weight gain causes knee pain. In addition to that I get knee swelling after every exhaustive day or strenuous work. Please advise.

better watch out. menopausal weight gain is physiological @ half kg per year or may be more and it is hormonal and non reversible. you are right ,walking more does cause knee pain as weight is carried by lower limbs. do exercises which involve entire body. get a stable cycle with rowing and exercise at home-cycling is less strenous than walking. eat healthy ,may be one meal a day. rest of the day only seasonal vegetables and fruits in plenty. lemon juice/apple cider vinegar do burn fat. yoga can help tone up muscles and help reduce weight too.

Sudden strain on your knees because of running might have caused knee pain. For the time being you can stop running and do knee exercises with yoga once your knee pain subsides you can gradually restart your running. You should always start from walking for few days then gradually can do mild jogging for few days after that do your running. Any exercise, if causes too much strain then you should stop it for some time. Little exertion and pain after exercise is normal but the pain should not persist after taking rest. You should consult a trainer to train you about running. For time being take following treatment. Dashmoolarishta kadha 2spoons twice orally with equal quantity of warm water for 3 months. Maharasnadi guggul 2-2-2 mahavaatvidhvansa 2-2-2 do hot fermentation. Stop eating chilled and sour food items.
