Dear lybrate user, try physiotherapy treatment. Electrotherapy or the physiotherapy modalities will definitely help ease the pain and swellings. A physiotherapist will also guide you the exercises you need to do to strengthen the muscles and avoid recurrence of such pain.

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).

Osteoarthritis for Patients ( Do understand what we mean)

Definition
Ossteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affects almost everyone. It occurs when the protective cartilage wear off. Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint in your body, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips and spine. There is no Cure for Osteoarthritis. But staying active, maintaining a healthy weight and other treatments may slow progression of the disease and help improve pain and joint function.
Symptoms
Osteoarthritis symptoms often develop slowly and worsen over time. Signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis include:
1) Pain.
2) Tenderness. Light pressure gives pain.
3) Stiffness.
4) Loss of flexibility
5) Grating sensation
6) Bone spurs. These extra bits of bone, which feel like hard lumps, may form around the affected joint.
Causes
Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage that cushions the ends of bones in your joints gradually deteriorates. Cartilage is a firm, slippery tissue that permits nearly frictionless joint motion. In osteoarthritis, the slick surface of the cartilage becomes rough. Eventually, if the cartilage wears down completely, you may be left with bone rubbing on bone.
Risk factors
Factors increase risk of osteoarthritis include:
1) Older age. The risk of osteoarthritis increases with age.
2) Sex. Women are more likely to develop osteoarthritis, though it isn't clear why.
3) Obesity. Carrying extra body weight contributes to osteoarthritis in several ways. It puts added stress on weight-bearing joints, such as your hips and knees. In addition, fat tissue produces proteins that may cause harmful inflammation in and around your joints.
4) Joint injuries. Injuries, such as those that occur when playing sports or from an accident, may increase the risk of osteoarthritis.
5) Certain occupations. If your job includes tasks that place repetitive stress on a particular joint, that joint may eventually develop osteoarthritis.
6) Genetics. Some people inherit a tendency to develop osteoarthritis.
7) Bone deformities. Some people are born with malformed joints or defective cartilage, which can increase the risk of osteoarthritis.
8) Other diseases. Having diabetes or other rheumatic diseases such as gout and rheumatoid arthritis can increase your risk of osteoarthritis.
Complications
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that worsens over time. Joint pain and stiffness may become severe enough to make daily tasks difficult. Some people are no longer able to work. When joint pain is this severe, doctors may suggest joint replacement surgery.
Tests and diagnosis
Clinical Examination, X Rays and Blood tests.
Treatments and drugs
1) Medications
a. Acetaminophen.
b. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
2) Therapy
a. Physical therapy.
b. Occupational therapy.
c. Braces or shoe inserts.
d. A chronic pain class – Training in group
3) Surgical and other procedures
a. Cortisone shots.
b. Lubrication injections.
c. Realigning bones.
d. Joint replacement.
4) Lifestyle and home remedies
a. Exercise.
b. Lose weight.
c. Use heat and cold to manage pain.
d. Apply over-the-counter pain creams.
e. Use assistive devices.
5) Alternative medicine (I do not believe but people use)
a. Acupuncture.
b. Glucosamine and chondroitin.
c. Avocado-soybean unsaponifiables.
d. Tai chi and yoga.

Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling. Practice yoga daily..

Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). (Excessive sitting or standing is to be avoided as well don’t carry much weight on shoulders). Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. Management: -Stretching or activities that place additional strain on the back are discouraged. -Sleeping with a pillow between the knees while lying on one side may increase comfort. -Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees would also relieves pain and no pillow under your head. -Some people seem to benefit from the use of ice or heat. Take care, do not use a heating pad on ‘high’ or place ice directly on the skin. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.

For joint pains try this. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. 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. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

Hello lybrate-user, ankles are weight bearing joints and as your weight is on higher side it is causing strain on the ankle joints. Another reason can be water retention, if you have swelling along with pain. Home remedy - soak your legs in hot water (bearable hot) wirh half cup epsom salt (magnesium sulphate). It is a muscle relaxant and will give you relief every time you use it. For proper medicinal treatment you can consult me if you want to go for natural remedies without side effects (homeopathy n herbal).
