My friend's knee was dislocated but now he' s alright but sometimes the pain emerges eventually, so he is bit worried.

My friend's knee was dislocated but now he' s alright but sometimes the pain emerges eventually, so he is bit worried.
Hello lybrate user, knee dislocaton is a very high energy injury which can cause injury to various soft tissue structures of the knee, it can also injury to the nerves causing paralysis of the muscles below the injury or even cause a blood vessel injury leading to amputation. Fortunately, your friend seems to have escaped the major complications and is has suffered injury only to the muscular and ligamentous injuries structures, which are a possible cause of pain and instability in his knee joint now. There are many soft tissue supporting structures in the knee and depending on which structure is injured you are going to have different types of clinical symptoms. I would suggest you consult an orthopedic surgeon who would be able to do a detailed evaluation of your friend. I would also suggest you to undergo an mri or arthroscopy of the knee joint or both for further management.

You have neurofibroma related nerve compression which is most likely causing the pain. Treatment of just the pain will not help your situation. You need to consult a neurosurgeon for definite treatment of the neurofibroma. You can consult again for further queries with your MRI scans and reports which are available.

Knee swelling is sometimes referred to as" water on the knee. The medical term for this condition is knee effusion. Effusion can result from an injury, chronic overuse, or disease. To treat your symptoms we need to identify the likely cause. The application of ice packs on your affected knee is known as a very effective home treatment method in alleviating the symptoms of fluid on the knee. Elevate your leg while applying an ice pack on the affected knee. Give yourself sufficient rest. You need to avoid engaging in strenuous activities. Please consult a physiotherapist to determine the cause of your joint swelling.

hi. generally wt gain is not related to calcium intake. there are many other factors dt control it. a simple logic to explain it can be increasing calcium levels in bones which can cause minimal weight gain. however, u taking calcium will not help u gain weight. u need to consult a doctor privately in order to help urself

Rheumatoid arthritis is a self limiting disease. Acute phase can be managed with medicines. Physiotherapy helps in preventing contractures & deformities. Keep your moral up! any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days caldikind plus (mankind) 1tab odx10days you will need other supportive medicines also. Do knee exercises it may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. If no relief in 4-5 days, contact me again.

Tips to prevent arthritis

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
Tips to prevent arthritis.

Arthritis in different forms affects a large number of people all over the world. There can be primary and secondary causes of arthritis, the most common being a degenerative form of arthritis, which can be due to the ageing process. There is also wear and tear of the cartilage between the two articulating bones, which forms the joint and in some cases, due to osteoporosis bones are already weaker and softer and susceptible to deformation.

Tips -

*Physical activity like choose stairs instead of lifts, walk 500 metres before getting into the car.
*Start mild to moderate exercises and weight management.
*Indulge in distressing activities like meditation.
*Protect your joints from fresh injury as well as the existing injuries.
*Drink plenty of water.
*Increase your calcium intake.
*Increase your vitamin intake.
*Treat injuries.
*Reduce repetitive motion in your daily life.
*Avoid smoking.
*Avoid alcohol consumption as it weakens bone health and structure.
*Try taking glucosamine and chondroitin.
*Drink milk regularly, and in case you are lactose intolerant then switch to calcium and broccoli for calcium intake.
*For a post menopausal woman, hormone replacement therapy and additional calcium and vitamin d are important.
*Practice yoga or simple stretching.
*Use of good body mechanics.
*Make sure that your shoes are the right size and make sure that they are padded.
*Avoid inflammatory foods

Often chronic inflammation is associated with a host of diseases, some of which are even life threatening like cancer and heart disease. You will be surprised to find that most of the internal inflammatory conditions occur due to the increased consumption of certain foods such as: salt, sugar, sweeteners, alcohol, caffeine, injected meat, common cooking oil, trans fats and red meat.

Home remedies for arthritis -
*One teaspoon of honey and apple cider vinegar each with a cup of warm water 
*Ginger
*Mustard oil
*Turmeric
*Epsom salt
*Cinnamon
*Fish oil
*Alfalfa
*Cherries
*Borage

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).

Hey lybrate-user, as you are having psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis is genetic disorder triggered due to stressful conditions and irregular life style. We are treating psoriasis using ayurvedic medicines. Psoriasis has three stages. First stage is when disease remain on skin and there are scaly patches. Second stage comes when there is pitting on nails and in last stage it enter the joints and there is pain in small joints. Generally patient use steroidal application on patches which give temporary relief and disease reappear after 2/3 days. In severe cases methotrexate is used which is not a safer option and is liver toxic. Ayurveda has got a complete remedy for psoriasis. It is a safer option and can be used for longer duration without any side effects. Ayurvedic external application give very quick results with sun exposure in clearing the scales and internal treatment does not allow the disease to re appear. Psoriasis is a manageable disease and can be managed with ease and effectively using ayurveda. You should use 3 gms of haldi with milk helps in psoriasis patients.
