Show x rays of both knee joints this could be due to oa knee &/or obesity. Physiotherapy along with medicines will help. Do knee exercises. It may have to be further investigated rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with a soft bedding on it.

Hello lybrate user, - as preventive measures you can follow few things like - maintaining position of back while sitting, traveling etc -careful while lifting heavy weight without back support - avoid some foods like potato, brinjal, peas, etc which are told to avoid in ayurveda - daily application if some medicated oils keeps our body strengthy. - for the present pain, apply mahanarayana taila and do hot fomentation for 15 min for 10 days. -if it is muscular pain then it will relieve by that time, if not go for x-ray to rule out bone or disc involvement thank you.

For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Although implant should not cause anything inside the body but yes it can be removed once solid bony union has taken place and bone has appropriately remodelled. Usually implant removal can be planned after 18 months - 24 months after initial surgery. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hello lybrate user, weight loss is by no means simple you know it! sweat it out is the key! any number of diets and fads won't do any good in the long run! aim to have a healthy lifestyle by daily doing lots of cardio exercises in the form of running, swimming, cycling, treadmill use etc. Basic rule is simple: you will have to keep your metabolism active by having small meals 6 times a day followed by workouts in order to burn out more calories than that you consume. Vitamin d deficiency on the other hand will be dealt with medications and lots of morning sunlight between 7 am to 9 am falling on your skin naturally synthesizing natural vitamin d. God bless you.

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).

I am 38yrs old woman. I have problem in my knee since childhood. My patellas are dislocated and as doctors told in childhood ligaments are also loose. As a result often the patella used to get twisted and I used to fell down and after that it was tremendous pain. The same problem persists today also. As I gained weight after birth of 2 children, the pain is now unbearable. Doctor suggested some physiotherapy for temporary relief in my childhood. What is the permanent remedy for this problem?

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.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Well you have mentioned that you earlier were having same problem, but was it ok in between or do you have these symptoms off and on? also as you have also gained weight, the problems may intensify in the near future. Also degenerative changes in spine occur especially if disc spaces collapse because it increases overall pressure on facet joints of spine and adjacent discs as well. But my advise is that if your pain is still a localized lower back pain with no other leg pain, numbness or any other nerve related symptoms, then - start leading an active lifestyle which means daily walks for around 2-3 km in a day - intensive back exercises to strengthen your back muscles - abdominal strengthening and other general conditioning exercises - to maintain proper posture of your back at all times in a day - physical therapy with modalities can be done initially for some time although mainstay will remain your exercises - take anti-inflammatory medication for 5-7 days to get initial relief - maintain proper calcium and vitamin d intake also please get one digital x ray done and send both films and report to me x ray ls spine ( ap & lateral-flexion and extension views) do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr. Akshay kumar saxena Consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi.

My wife is 62 years old. She had spondylosis (affecting T2, T3 and L4 L5 revealed by MRI in 1997) way back in 1990s for about 8 years. During this period we tried almost all systems of medicines including allopathy, ayurveda, Homoeo, unani, siddhavaidya etc. But none gave a permanent relief. Finally we had settled down on allopathy as this was one of the easy remedies we found. The treatment was to take pain killers and to have bed rest. This was on the advice of my friend who was one of the seniormost orthopaedic surgeons in Safdarjung Hospital Delhi (1997). During these 7-8 years she had consumed a lot of pain killers (mainly diclofenac sodium). In 1998, however, she was cured of the problem by following naturopathy for 15 days in Delhi and following a natural hygiene. Since then she did not have any spondylosis problem. In 2013 (We moved from Delhi to Bangalore in 2003), during one of the medical check up for an Insurance application we discovered by chance that she is having High Blood Pressure (?) (150-90) and doctors advised her to start medicines for high BP immediately (envas-H 12.5 one daily). We continued the medicine for about a year. The medicine was stopped during the Naturopathy treatment in 2014 and the BP became normal. She has not taken the medicine thereafter. However, we used to check BP whenever we visit any doctor and found BP always normal. Recently by chance we found that her BP in the morning (upto around 9.00 am) is regularly in the range of (140-80 to 160-90) but after 11: 00 am the BP is normal (120-80). In the night, say after 8: 00 pm, it is again on a higher side. We are not sure when it started. She does not have any other problem except some occasional common cold (whenever climate changes) and related cough, fever, etc. My question is 1. Whether it is normal to have such fluctuations in BP during the course of the day? 2. Is it pointing to some other serious health problems needing immediate attention? 3. Is it because she stopped Envas-H after taking it for one year? I will be thankful for an early advice.

Blood pressure fluctuation sometimes occur which is normal...if she has blood pressure 150/90...it is not that much high to be worried...instead of taking medicines she should control her blood pressure by doing pranayama yoga and maintaining diet...spondylosis is curable by maintaining posture...and physiotherapy treatment
