घुटने की सूजन - Ghutne Ki Sujan!

घुटने की सूजन - Ghutne Ki Sujan!

घुटनों में सूजन एक प्रचलित समस्या है जो निरंतर घिसने के कारण सूजन का कारण बन जाती है. ये समस्या ज़्यादातर बुजुर्गों और वयस्कों द्वारा महसूस की जाती है. महिलाओं में पुरुषों से अधिक घुटनों में सूजन की परेशानी होती है. सूजन घुटनों की हड्डियों के किसी भी क्षेत्र में हो सकता है जैसे फीमर, टिबिया और फिबुला, घुटने की ऊपरी हड्डी, पेटेला या फिर लिगामेंट और कार्टिलेज आदि. घुटने में सूजन आपको सामान्य से गंभीर हो सकता है.

* हल्दी है लाभदायक
हल्दी को दर्द से निजात पाने के लिए सदियों से इस्तेमाल किया जा रहा है. हल्दी में करक्यूमिन पाया जाता है. इसमें सूजनरोधी और एंटीऑक्सीडेंट गुण होते हैं जो सूजन और दर्द को कम करने में सहायक होते हैं. हल्दी रयूमेटाइड आर्थराइटिस के प्रभाव को कम करता है जिसे घुटने के सूजन का मुख्य कारण माना जाता है. हल्दी का इस्तेमाल करने के लिए एक कप पानी में एक या आधा चम्मच अदरक और हल्दी को मिलाकर इसे दस मिनट के लिए इसे ही उबालें. अब इस मिश्रण को छानकर इसमें हल्दी को मिलाकर इसे पूरे दिन में दो बार ज़रूर पियें. एक ग्लास दूध में एक चम्मच हल्दी पाउडर मिलाएं. अब इसे शहद के साथ मिक्स करें और पूरे दिन में एक बार ज़रूर पियें.

* मेथी का बीज
मेथी के बीज में भी हल्दी के सामान ही गुण होते है. इसमें मौजूद सूजनरोधी और एंटीऑक्सीडेंट गुण घुटने के सूजन और दर्द से राहत दिलाने में अहम् भूमिका निभाते हैं. मेथी के बीज को स्वाभाविक रूप से गर्म माना गया हैं और गठिये से पीड़ित मरीजों के लिए लाभदायक माना गया है. इसके लिए रातभर एक चम्मच मेथी के बीज को भिगोकर रख दें. सुबह पानी को निकाल लें और उन बीजों को चबाएं. इस प्रक्रिया को पूरे दिन में एक या दो हफ्ते तक करें.

* सरसों का तेल
सरसों के तेल कई रूप से इस्तेमाल किया जाता है. यह आपके रसोई से लेकर औषधिय रूप में भी इस्तेमाल किया जाता है. गर्म सरसो के तेल से मसाज करने से सूजन और दर्द से राहत मिलती है. यह आपके शरीर में रक्त रिसंचरण में सुधार करता है जो सूजन को ठीक करता है. इसके लिए आपको दो चम्मच सरसों के तेल को गर्म करना होगा और उसमें लहसुन को काट कर डाल लें. इसे डालने के बाद लहसून को भूरा होने तक गर्म करते रहें. लहसून को भूरा होने के बाद तेल को छान ले और ठंडा होने तक छोड़ दें. अब इस गुनगुने गर्म तेल से अपने घुटनों पर मसाज करें.

* सेब का सिरका
सेब साइडर सिरका में कई प्रकार के औषधिय गुण होते है. यह जोड़ो में चिकनाई लाता है जो घुटने में सूजन और दर्द को कम करने में मदद करता है और घुटनो में गतिशीलता प्रदान करती है. इसे इस्तेमाल करने के लिए आपको दो कप पानी में दो चम्मच सेब के सिरके को मिलाएं. इस मिक्सचर को अच्छी तरह से मिलाने के बाद पी लें. इस मिक्सचर को सूजन और दर्द कम होने तक रोजाना पीएं. इसके अलावा आप एक बाल्टी पानी को गर्म कर लें और इसमें दो चम्मच सेब साइडर सिरका को मिक्स कर दें. अब इसमें अपने प्रभावित क्षेत्रों को आधे घंटे के लिए डालें रखें. आप चाहें तो एक एक चम्मच सेब का सिरका और जैतून के तेल को मिला लें. अब इस मिश्रण को घुटनों पर मसाज की तरह इस्तेमाल करें.

* लाल मिर्च का करें उपयोग
लाल मिर्च में कैप्साइसिन गुण पाया जाता है जो सूजन को कम करने के लिए सहायक होता है. कैप्साइसिन के स्वाभाविक एनाल्जेसिक में गर्माहट पैदा करने वाले गुण होते है जो घुटनों के सूजन और दर्द से राहत प्रदान करता है. आधे कप गर्म जैतून के तेल में दो चम्मच लाल मिर्च मिलाकर इस पेस्ट को प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर एक हफ्ते तक रोज़ाना पूरे दिन में दो बार ज़रूर लगाएं. इसके अलावा आप एक चौथाई या एक चम्मच लाल मिर्च को एक कप सेब के सिरके में मिलाएं. अब एक कपडा लें और उसे इस मिश्रण में भिगोएं और प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर बीस मिनट तक लगाकर रखें.

* अदरक
अदरक में सूजनरोधी गुण मौजूद होते हैं. अदरक घुटनों की सूजन और सूजन को कम करने में मदद करता है. इसके लिए ताज़ा अदरक को सबसे पहले काट लें और उसे फिर क्रश कर लें. अब इन्हें एक कप पानी में क्रश कर लें और दस मिनट के लिए उबलने को रख दें. अब इस मिश्रण को छान लें और इसमें बराबर मात्रा में शहद और नींबू का जूस मिलाएं.

* सेंधा नमक को दर्द और सूजन को कम करने के लिए प्राचीन समय से ही इस्तेमाल किया जा रहा है. सेंधा नमक में मैग्नीशियम सल्फेट मौजूद होता है. यह गुण घुटनों से दर्द और सूजन से राहत प्रदान करता है. मैग्नीशियम स्वाभाविक रूप से मांसपेशियों में दर्द से राहत पहुंचाने में मदद करता है जिससे मांशपेशियों के ऊतकों से तरल पदार्थों को निकालने में मदद मिलती है. करने के लिए गर्म पानी के बाल्टी में एक या आधा कप सेंधा नमक को मिलाएं. अब अपने प्रभवित हिस्से को गर्म बाल्टी में डाल कर कुछ देर के लिए छोड़ दें. यह सूजन और दर्द को कम करने में अत्यंत मददगार साबित होगा. इस बात का ध्यान रखें की जो ह्रदय से सम्बंधित समस्यायों या हाई बीपी और शुगर से पीड़ित है वह इससे परहेज करें.

* नींबू है उपयोगी
नींबू में मौजूद सिट्रिक एसिड यूरिक एसिड क्रिस्टल के लिए एक द्रावक की तरह काम करता है जो कि कुछ प्रकार के गठिया का कारण होता है. इसका इस्तेमाल करने के लिए एक या दो नींबू को छोटे-छोटे टुकड़ों में काट लें. कॉटन के कपडे में इन टुकड़ों को बाँधकर तिल के तेल में डुबायें और इस कपडे को प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर दस मिनट तक लगाकर रखें. इस प्रक्रिया को पूरे दिन में दो बार ज़रूर करें तब तक जब तक सूजन चला नहीं जाता.

* आइस पैक का उपयोग करें
आइस बैग भी घुटनों में घुटने और दर्द से निजात पाने में कारगर उपाय सिद्ध होता है. यह आपके रक्त वाहिकाएं को करती है, जिससे प्रभावित हिस्सों पर रक्त का प्रवाह कम हो जाता है और इससे सूजन से राहत मिलती है. मुट्ठीभर बर्फ लें और उसे किसी तौलिये या कपडे में लपेटकर रख दें. 10 से 20 मिनट के लिए प्रभावित क्षेत्रों पर तौलिए या कपडे को लगाएं.

I 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. Knee pain more than 2 weeks:if your knee is paining since 2 weeks, then you have to rethink whether you had any injury in the previous years. I 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. As arthritis is very common if anyone would've neglected any injury in the previous years. You can take Ultrasonic therapy in one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics which would help to heal the damaged cartilages along with shortwave diathermy which would help to improve the blood circulation. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. You may do all of these exercises right away. It’s important to stretch the muscles in the back and on the side of your leg. It is also important to strengthen the muscles in your hip and on the top of your thigh so your kneecap won't dislocate again. •Standing hamstring stretch: Put the heel of the leg on your injured side on a stool about 15 inches high. Keep your leg straight. Lean forward, bending at the hips, until you feel a mild stretch in the back of your thigh. Make sure you don't roll your shoulders or bend at the waist when doing this or you will stretch your lower back instead of your leg. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Quad sets: Sit on the floor with your injured leg straight and your other leg bent. Press the back of the knee of your injured leg against the floor by tightening the muscles on the top of your thigh. Hold this position 10 seconds. Relax. Do 2 sets of 15. •Straight leg raise: Lie on your back with your legs straight out in front of you. Bend the knee on your uninjured side and place the foot flat on the floor. Tighten the thigh muscle on your injured side and lift your leg about 8 inches off the floor. Keep your leg straight and your thigh muscle tight. Slowly lower your leg back down to the floor. Do 2 sets of 15. •Side-lying leg lift: Lie on your uninjured side. Tighten the front thigh muscles on your injured leg and lift that leg 8 to 10 inches (20 to 25 centimeters) away from the other leg. Keep the leg straight and lower it slowly. Do 2 sets of 15. •Prone hip extension: Lie on your stomach with your legs straight out behind you. Fold your arms under your head and rest your head on your arms. Draw your belly button in towards your spine and tighten your abdominal muscles. Tighten the buttocks and thigh muscles of the leg on your injured side and lift the leg off the floor about 8 inches. Keep your leg straight. Hold for 5 seconds. Then lower your leg and relax. Do 2 sets of 15. •Step-up: Stand with the foot of your injured leg on a support 3 to 5 inches (8 to 13 centimeters) high --like a small step or block of wood. Keep your other foot flat on the floor. Shift your weight onto the injured leg on the support. Straighten your injured leg as the other leg comes off the floor. Return to the starting position by bending your injured leg and slowly lowering your uninjured leg back to the floor. Do 2 sets of 15. •Wall squat with a ball: Stand with your back, shoulders, and head against a wall. Look straight ahead. Keep your shoulders relaxed and your feet 3 feet (90 centimeters) from the wall and shoulder's width apart. Place a soccer or basketball-sized ball behind your back. Keeping your back against the wall, slowly squat down to a 45-degree angle. Your thighs will not yet be parallel to the floor. Hold this position for 10 seconds and then slowly slide back up the wall. Repeat 10 times. Build up to 2 sets of 15. •Knee stabilization: Wrap a piece of elastic tubing around the ankle of your uninjured leg. Tie a knot in the other end of the tubing and close it in a door at about ankle height. •Stand facing the door on the leg without tubing (your injured leg) and bend your knee slightly, keeping your thigh muscles tight. Stay in this position while you move the leg with the tubing (the uninjured leg) straight back behind you. Do 2 sets of 15. •Turn 90 degrees so the leg without tubing is closest to the door. Move the leg with tubing away from your body. Do 2 sets of 15. •Turn 90 degrees again so your back is to the door. Move the leg with tubing straight out in front of you. Do 2 sets of 15. •Turn your body 90 degrees again so the leg with tubing is closest to the door. Move the leg with tubing across your body. Do 2 sets of 15. Hold onto a chair if you need help balancing. This exercise can be made more challenging by standing on a firm pillow or foam mat while you move the leg with tubing. •Resisted terminal knee extension: Make a loop with a piece of elastic tubing by tying a knot in both ends. Close the knot in a door at knee height. Step into the loop with your injured leg so the tubing is around the back of your knee. Lift the other foot off the ground and hold onto a chair for balance, if needed. Bend the knee with tubing about 45 degrees. Slowly straighten your leg, keeping your thigh muscle tight as you do this. Repeat 15 times. Do 2 sets of 15. If you need an easier way to do this, stand on both legs for better support while you do the exercise. •Standing calf stretch: Stand facing a wall with your hands on the wall at about eye level. Keep your injured leg back with your heel on the floor. Keep the other leg forward with the knee bent. Turn your back foot slightly inward (as if you were pigeon-toed). Slowly lean into the wall until you feel a stretch in the back of your calf. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Return to the starting position. Repeat 3 times. Do this exercise several times each day. •Clam exercise: Lie on your uninjured side with your hips and knees bent and feet together. Slowly raise your top leg toward the ceiling while keeping your heels touching each other. Hold for 2 seconds and lower slowly. Do 2 sets of 15 repetitions. •Iliotibial band stretch, side-bending: Cross one leg in front of the other leg and lean in the opposite direction from the front leg. Reach the arm on the side of the back leg over your head while you do this. Hold this position for 15 to 30 seconds. Return to the starting position. Repeat 3 times and then switch legs and repeat the exercise.

Gout - How Homeopathy Can Help In Treating It?

Gout - How Homeopathy Can Help In Treating It?

Gout is a disease of the joints. It is a kind of arthritis, which is caused by the deposition of uric acid in the joints. The deposited uric acid causes inflammation of the joints. The disease occurs when our body fails to eliminate the excess uric acid in blood by excretion or the production of the acid is increased.

The level of uric acid in our bodies goes up when the amount of purines in our meals is increased. Purines are responsible for the production of uric acid. They are found in meats, alcohol, sea food and other food items. When digestion of these foods takes place inside the body, purine is released into the blood stream. Uric acid level is also increased by a sedentary lifestyle. Sometimes other factors like intake of insufficient water, consumption of medicines and obesity can also affect the uric acid level in the blood.

Symptoms of Gout

One will notice a redness and swelling around the affected joint. Gout commonly affects the big toe, ankles, hands and wrists. The patient has to deal with intense shooting pain in the joint. The patient also feels some itching in the affected region. Some patients develop nodules called tophi in the joints.

Homeopathy Treatment for Gout

In most cases, patients seeking allopathic treatment for gout take frequent pain killers to get rid of the pain. The pain killers will provide temporary relief. But the main problem persists. However, homeopathy treats the root cause of the problem and aims at eradicating the disease completely. In this article, three commonly used homeopathic medicines used for treating gout have been listed. However, these medicines may not suit all individuals with gout. The effectiveness of the medicines largely depends on the patient’s lifestyle. These medicines are listed below:

  1. Colchicum: It is the primary medicine given to patients suffering from gout. It is good for the treatment of the chronic cases. It is given to patients who suffer from pain in the big toe. The pain is unbearable, when the affected area is touched. The region turns hot, red and swollen. In these patients, the pain starts from the left side usually. The patient feels feverish. Their problem will intensify in warm weather. Their joints get stiffer.

  2. Ledum Pal: It is for patients who suffer from gout pain travelling upwards. The pain is likely to start from the patient’s feet and travel towards the knees. The patient will not be able to bear external warmth. The patient feels better with cold application.

  3. Benzoic Acid: This medicine is for patients who suffer from gout along with offensive urine. The odour of the urine is intolerable. The colour of the urine is unusual—brown in colour sometimes. There is a cracking sound in the joints.

Homoeopathic medicines can be a big boon for all those who suffer from high uric acid. These medicines work by reducing the uric acids overproduction by the body and accelerating the removal of this waste product from through the kidneys.

Homoeopathy is known to control the uric acid diathesis and is also useful in acute attacks. Homeopathy helps in controlling the pain during the acute attack of gout as well as helps in preventing the recurrence of such episodes. It helps in reducing stiffness and improves the mobility of the joints.

One big advantage that homoeopathy offers in the treatment of high uric acid is that once treated the chances of relapse are very less, this is also subjected to the condition that diet and Alcohol and weight are well controlled.

With continued treatment from a specialised homeopath, the patient notices reduction in the frequency of attacks and intensity of pains with gradually leading to complete cure.

Osteoarthritis - How Ayurveda Can Help?

Osteoarthritis is a common disorder that affects the joints in the body. It is characterized by wear and tear of the cartilage present in the bones which lead to pain and mobility issues. The disorder mostly affects the joints in the hips, spine, knees and the hands. This disorder can’t be cured; the symptoms, however, can be managed.

Symptoms

The symptoms of osteoarthritis are progressive in nature and tend to worsen with time. You will experience pain in the affected joint, leading to limited mobility. Joint stiffness occurs when you wake up in the morning or when you have been inactive for a long period. You will also experience a grating-like sensation when the respective joint is being used.

Causes

This condition occurs when the protective cartilage around the bones tend to deteriorate. The function of the cartilage is to allow the joints to move without friction. In this disorder, the surface of the affected cartilage turns rough, ultimately resulting in complete damage. This leads to loss of the protective cushion of the bone, making the bone rub on other bones. There are certain factors that make you prone to osteoarthritis, some of them are:

  1. Aging increases the risks of this disorder.

  2. Women are more prone to this disorder as compared to men.

  3. Obesity puts added stress on the joints.

  4. It might be hereditary as well.

Ayurvedic Treatment

Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine that balances the different energies in the body to keep you healthy. Ayurveda believes in the fact that a disorder in the body occurs when there is an imbalance in the respective doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The idea is to get the doshas in order in order to get relief from the symptoms of this disorder. Osteoarthritis, or for that matter any disorder occurs due to the imbalance of the ‘Vata dosha’. The Ayurvedic treatments for this condition is Pachkarma therapy.

Panchakarma is the elimination of doshas from the body. It is one of the peculiarities of Ayurveda. Since according to Ayurveda, disease is the result of imbalance of doshas, when the increase of dosha is in a large quantity the best way to get cured faster is expelling the doshas out. These procedures (Karmas) are five (Pancha) and hence they are described as Panchakarma i.e. five procedures. These are to be performed not only by the patient for getting them cured but even by healthy persons for maintaining the health. 

  1. Vamana: This is the elimination of doshas by the process of emesis. This is particularly useful for diseases arising from kapha and also from pitta. Diseases like chr. bronchitis, asthma, skin diseases, allergies, herpes, diabetes, sinusitis, osteoarthritis, hyperacidity are best dealt with this procedure. The best season for doing this procedure is ‘ Spring’ or even ‘Autumn’.
  2. Virechana: In this procedure, loose motions are produced to eliminate the doshas. This is very useful in diseases caused by pitta dosha e.g. Hyperacidity, herpes, gulma (Type of tumor) jaundice, osteoarthritis, anemia, skin diseases etc. The best season for this procedure is ‘autumn’.
  3. Basti: The procedure is important for the Vata dosha mainly, but can be used for Kapha and pitta and for all sorts of diseases also. In this procedure enema with herbal decoction, oil, honey and salt is given. Since it has a direct action over the large intestine, which is the main site of Vata dosha, it acts instantaneously. The procedure is especially useful for all kinds of diseases caused by Vata Dosha e.g. back ache, arthritis, osteoarthritis, dystrophies, multiple scherosis, muscle waisting etc. The best season for this procedure is the rainy season.

Knee Pain - Causes & Tips To Manage It!

The knee is the largest joint of the body and is made up of upper and lower bones that are separated by two discs known as menisci. While minor knee pain may be experienced by many people, it should be handled with medical intervention when it becomes a serious and debilitating problem.

Sudden injury or injury due to overuse as well as myriad conditions that affect the joints and muscles can bring about knee pain. Underlying conditions like osteoporosis or arthritis, which affect the bones and joints, can also cause knee pain. The symptoms include painful swelling and stiffness as well as severe discomfort.

Let us learn more about the causes of knee pain and the ways in which it can be managed:

  • Injury: Exercise and sports injuries are one of the most common causes that can be the start of acute knee pain, as well as chronic condition. These kinds of injuries can affect the ligaments and cartilage which leads to severe pain. The pain can even affect the way one functions in one's daily life. Knee ligament injuries can also cause this kind of pain. These ligaments are bands of tissues that connect the thigh bone with the lower leg bones. Sprains and tears in the ACL or PCL are common in sports injuries, and may even require surgery in many cases. Knee Cartilage Tears can also take place in the hard yet flexible cartilage of the knee which can affect the meniscus around the knee. This condition may also require surgery.
  • Arthritis: This condition can affect the knees specifically and is one of the most common types of arthritis. This is a chronic condition which gets progressively worse over time and may even require surgery. Stiffness and inflammation are common symptoms. Rheumatoid arthritis is also a degenerative auto-immune disease that can affect the knees and cause knee pain. Furthermore, post traumatic arthritis can also be experienced after an injury. Osteoarthritis is another common condition that leads to knee pain. It basically occurs due to wear and tear of the knees over a prolonged period and is usually experienced by patients over the age of 50.
  • Managing Knee Pain: While pain medication and anti-inflammatory drugs may be prescribed for most cases, along with the surgery in long run, it is also possible to manage knee pain with the help of better lifestyle choices like regular knee and muscle strengthening exercises as well as REST - rest, ice, compression and elevation. These methods can help in relieving inflammation and pain. But very severe cases will require medical intervention, so it is imperative to get in touch with your doctor if the condition does not improve.
