Partial Knee Replacement Surgery - 5 Questions You Must Ask!

Partial Knee Replacement Surgery - 5 Questions You Must Ask!

Lack of proper mobility due to stiffness and significant pain can be due to a number of bone and joint problems. Osteoarthritis, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, as well as injuries, trauma and inflammation of the knees are only some of the reasons why a patient may be experiencing joint pain. Apart from rest and medication, various surgical procedures may be considered as an option for particularly severe cases. Partial knee replacement surgery is one such option. So, here are the five questions that you must ask an orthopaedic specialist about partial knee replacement surgery.

  1. What is partial knee replacement surgery: This kind of surgery usually seeks only to replace the damaged part of the knee where the movements of the patient get restricted to a great degree. With the help of this surgery, the orthopaedic surgeon can replace the medial or inner part of the knee; or the lateral or outer part of the knee. When the surgeon conducts a surgery to replace the entire knee, this is called knee replacement.
  2. How to prepare for the procedure: The doctor will advise you to stay away from any medication and dietary supplements that may hinder the work of the anaesthesia that will be administered before the surgery. Before the surgery, the orthopaedic specialist will understand your medical history.
  3. What is the procedure: The surgical procedure for partial knee replacement surgery usually involves keeping the knee in a bent position so that all the joint surfaces are well exposed. The surgeon will start by making an incision that is about six to ten inches in length, before removing the knee cap in order to remove the joint surfaces that have faced damage. Once this has been done, the surgeon will attach artificial joint pieces and close the knee. Then, the doctor will bend and rotate to test for balance and proper functioning of the knee. This procedure usually takes close to two hours.
  4. How long does recovery take: The recovery process usually takes about three to four weeks following the surgery.
  5. What to do after the surgery: Pain medication will help the patient in coping with the initial discomfort and after effects of the surgery. Right after the surgery, the patient will be shown exercises before he or she is put onto a graduated walking program where walking indoors and then outdoors will be practiced. The patient will be required to take on physiotherapy for four to six months following this procedure so as to recover in a better manner and have a better functioning knee.

Get a complete check-up done in case you are facing persistent knee problems.

Suffering From Joint Pain - Things You Must Do!

MBBS
General Physician, Jalgaon
Suffering From Joint Pain - Things You Must Do!

The various movements of the body are enabled by the way the bones work with each other and allow for various movements. You cannot perform a single movement without the coordination of the various joints and bones. It is also for the same reason that joint pains are so common. Accidents, sports injuries, play area injuries, and general ageing are some of the causes that can result in joint pain. There are definitely ways to treat them, but at the same time, preventing them also can be helpful. Read on to know some of the ways to prevent and manage joint pains.

Precautionary measure: For children, ensure they are playing under the supervision of an adult and are wearing sufficient protective gear in the form of helmets, wrist/elbow guards, etc. The same goes for athletes who are prone to injuries. It is always prudent to know your physical limits and not stretch your body constantly. This will go a long way in reducing injuries. Always keep a first-aid kit in your sports bag so that you can manage the pain at the earliest.

If prevention does not work, and injuries do happen, some of the ways to manage them are outlined below.

  1. Cryotherapy/ice therapy: By reducing the blood flow to the affected joint, ice helps in reducing the pain and swelling, which are usually the prominent symptoms of any joint injury. Using an ice pack for 15 to 20 minutes every hour is greatly useful in reducing the pain. This can be continued for the next few days until the pain stops. Avoid ice burns by not applying ice directly on the skin; instead, wrap it in a towel or a soft cotton cloth.
  2. Oil massages: Natural oils can be used to massage the affected joints which also greatly reduce pain. Oils which contain menthol or give a topical soothing effect are highly recommended. If you are unable to do it at home, seek professional help for the same.
  3. Hydrotherapy: Warm baths with salts added for extra benefit can provide soothing relief from joint pains. Try these before going to bed to also get good sleep.
  4. Herbal mixes: Tea bags and other herbal mixes can also be used to relieve joint pains. These may work for some and may not work for others. As these are external applications, you can give it a try.
  5. Immobilise the area: The affected joint should be immobilised completely or partially, depending on the extent of damage.
  6. Physiotherapy: While initially the joint needs to be rested, getting into a physical exercise routine with inputs from a physiotherapist is very essential to avoid long-term immobility.
  7. Medications: Non-steroidal pain killers are another proven method to manage joint pains. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Our house maid help lady 50 yrs. Old has pain the arm most of the day and also in both legs calf many times causing big problem for her life. It said with occasional pai low n but frequency increased and now bad. She has low hemoglobin count also. My questions to help her: 1. What is the reason for the pain, 2. What food items intake will cure her of pain and anaemic nature as I have read that medicines are not useful as body is not designed to absorb chemicals in medicine and only natural food can be assimilated by body, 3. If some medicine will help then please prescribe generic medicines which are cheaper as we are also retired middle class and as such try to help with her children education, transport cost, help from time to time in these hard days etc. Thanking you in anticipation.

I fall down from stairs and my elbow got hurt, it seemed to be normal not much pain, in x-ray not fracture found but doc said you had injury in soft tissue and need to get hard one plaster for one month. The body language of his was not satisfactory I would be feeling like cheated, he charged a lot and told me to do bone test every week. Please what should I do?

I suggest you to take second opinion as in soft tissue injury, generally we do not put plaster for more than a week. 1 month plaster will stiffen up you elbow joint. Moreover repeat x-ray every week is not indicated if first x-ray is normal.

I have tremendous pain in both my legs, at same points on both the legs. You can say I have a tremendous overall pain in both my legs. The reason behind it is I had started working out from 13 th of June, where I used to do a half an hour jogging/ walking session in the morning and 1 hour gym session at night. In the morning session I used to jog and walk for 2.75 km, covering the distance in less than half an hour. And at night gym session, apart from upper body exercise, I used to do 10 minutes of treadmill, started with walking and then gradually moved on to running on treadmill, where I could later run a distance of 1.5 km and I also used to do 5 minutes of gym cycling. Before 5 days I had started experiencing unusual pain in my legs which I ignored considering it as workout pain. But as it got a bit immense, I skipped the next day morning jogging session. I applied some pain killer spray. Next day on Saturday when I went for jogging I could hardly jog 500m, which was very less compared to the earlier sessions. So on the Saturday night I contacted my gym trainer, he asked me to take some rest till Monday and start the legs workout from Tuesday. But still I'm having tremendous pain in both my legs making me very difficult to walk and even stand at a place for 5 minutes. What do I do please suggest!

I think my foot (both legs) is weak as whenever I walk too much or exercise they start paining and the pain is more specific to the heel area. What should I do to make them stronger?

Physiotherapist, Vadodara
You should wear proper footwear (sports shoes) while excessive walking. And start to wear soft spongy sleepers even in your home. Sometime if your foot is flat foot means no arch or less arch then it must pain in exertion, so observe your foot if it is flat foot then you can to occupational therapist so he can make arch or pad that ll be beneficial for you in weight bearing position. And do hot water formentation for that take a bucket full of water and immerse your foot into it till ankle level ,do it twice in a day for 10 mins .Do Ankle stretching exercises.

While sitting with any support as cushion etc that portion gets pained after removal from such portion I feel relaxed.

The lower end of the vertebral column is inflamed and that bone is called coccyx bone and the condition is called Coccydynia. The conservative management would be to keep ice in that inflamed area during one time in a day and also to sit in a hot water bowl where the penetration of the heat would help to reduce the inflammation. And to reduce the weight falling on the inflammed surface we suggest patients to use air cushion pillow (also called as doughnut pillow) where in the buttock's weight will not fall exactly on the painful tail bone and that would automatically reduce the pain. For this the best treatment would be to undergo Ultrasonic therapy in one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics.

I am 28 m and suffering from a continuous head heaviness and crippling fatigue from last 20 years. My symptoms are: head pulsation (felt as head heaviness, coldness (menthol like feeling) and tingling throughout the body accompanied by fatigue and pain. .The symptoms are worse in morning and wax and wane all the time with my feet also having a bad cold burning sensation intermittently. On top of the symptoms mentioned above, there is a mild overlapped/superimposed discomfort (running through the left side of head) getting me a feel to crack my neck head joint on the left side. Occasionally, this discomfort worsens into a full blown nauseatic painful unilateral headache (left side) with a very sharp pain felt at the head neck joint on the left side and also through the head on the left side itself. Not only this, the pain, during these episodes also spreads into the whole left side of the body (into shoulder, arm, back, leg and foot) and I kind of get a feeling to crack all the joints on the left side of my body, specially the neck head joint as it kind of mitigates and releases the pain. Furthermore, on some very rare occasions, while travelling in the car, there have been episodes where my nausea and tingling have become so bad that my hands have gotten clenched tightly (without any unconsciousness. However, they become better within 5 10 minutes after getting out of the car and taking fresh air. I have mild scoliosis ,restricted ROM of neck, bertolotti syndrome, vitamin b12 deficiency (234), c6-c7 nerve compression. The symptoms seem to suggest a cervicogenic headache but doctors don't agree because the symptoms are systemic well. Infact ,to some extent, I too agree with them as I have observed that it is the mint cold feeling in the extremities that precedes and starts off all the symptoms. Please help.

According to the details given by you I am suggesting a homoeopathic medicine. See if it helps. Even if it does not in case then also I advise you to continue with the homoeoapthic treatment as I am sure your complaints have better solution in homoeopathy. Take Can notharis 200 1 dose every week. Better consult for further treatment.
