My bone density is -1. 5. I am around 60+. What do you sugest me about medicine? is it calcium with d3?

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Welcome to lybrate, this is Dr. Hitin mathur from new delhi. You are suffering from osteopenia or low bone density. I would suggest that you should get your vitamin d levels done fasting and if the levels are low, you'll need supplements depending on the vitamin d levels. Besides that you can start tab osteophos 70 mg's once a week on empty stomach. Remember not to lie down for half an hour at least after taking this medication as it may cause acidity. This drug is meant to improve your bone density and is to be taken for 1 year. Calcium supplements will continue lifelong. Get your bone density repeated after 1 year.

Hello- looking and your complaints and your normal report status, it might be possible that this pain is due to gaseous distension in your stomach (which resides in between both the ribs). >try this treatment- 1) arogyawardhini vati 1 tab twice daily. 2) vasaguluchyadi kashaya 2 tsp twice daily. Continue these medication for fifteen days and let me know your status after that.

Dear , I am Dr. Saseendar, specialist orthopaedic surgeon from chennai. If the orthopaedician has ruled out a fracture, then you need not worry. Also you said she is able to do her routine activities comfortably. The black colour is most likely because of hematoma and will resolve in a few days time. If possible kindly post pictures of the knee.

Want a Fit Spine: 5 Must Do Exercises

Want a Fit Spine: 5 Must Do Exercises

Spinal cord is a very important part of your body as it renders support to your body.  It also gives your body a good posture and thus maintaining a healthy spine is very essential. An unfit spinal cord can lead to various complicated problems.

The following are 5 must do exercises in order to maintain a healthy spine:

  1. Exercising your core muscles can help you to maintain a fit spine. Your core muscles refer to the muscles of your lower back and your abdominal muscles. These muscles give support to your spine. So exercising them can give you a healthy spine.
  2. Walking regularly can also give you a healthy spine. It is suitable for people of all age groups. Daily walking can help you to recover from various spinal illnesses as well such as spinal stenosis.
  3. Swimming is also a good exercise for maintaing a fit spinal cord. Swimming helps to exercise all back muscles and thus, gives you a healthy spinal cord.
  4. Lying down straight with your face down on an even and firm surface for about twenty minutes can help you to get a healthy spine and also a good body posture.
  5. Cycling can also help you achieve a healthy spine. While cycling, all your back muscles and the muscles of the lower part of your body are engaged in physical activity. If the muscles of your lower back are strong, then it can help you to keep your spine fit.

Other than these exercises, stretching your limbs and other stretching exercises are also beneficial for a healthy spine. But it is highly recommended for you to consult a doctor before doing any exercise in order to be guided in the proper manner and avoid further complications.

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.

I seem to have injured my right knee. I feel very slight pain when I sit cross legged. Ironically there is no pain when I do squats lunges or even when I run walk or climb stairs. The pain sort of feels similar to when one stretches an unprepared muscle.

Hi good evening lybrate-user, if you are having pain sitting cross legged especially on ground it could be because of strain of lateral structures of the knee or could be because of meniscal injury it has to be clinically evaluated and treated accordingly followed by strengthening exercises of knee, thank you.

So elaborate your back pain, leg pain, numbness in legs, paresthesias in legs etc also please tell me how much distance can you walk before you start feeling these symptoms? have you got x rays and mri of your lower back done? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

In a free diagnosis camp, I got to know that I have osteoporosis (T score -3.5). Post this I got my full checkup done, all other tests are good except (Vit D 11.98) & B12 88) which are towards insufficiency end. Though my lifestyle was sedentary but I have picked up running in last 5 years and have run quite a few half marathons. I have left all this as I have developed foot pain and weight again increased post quitting running. After a gap of a year, I have again started workouts and I run 2 km 3-4 times a week and do 30 min walks daily, followed by workout. I do these exercises in park so get some sun exposure as well. I am 39 year old (Wt 85 kgs), my legs pains whenever I run fast now. Pls advise what should be done so that I can continue running long.

Dear lybrate-user, namaskar, you seem to do very well with your workout. Keep it up. Avoid running fast continuously. You can do that intermittently and increase the speed gradually. Secondly. Bmd test done in a free camp is a very crude sort of screening. If you wish, get bone densitometry done at a reputed radiology centre for exact assessment. You may take dv k-60 once a week and becosule twice a day for 3 months to compensate the deficiency reported. Take care.

Is it fatal to undergo knee-replacement for a patient aged above 84?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist,
Total knee replacement surgery at 84yrs. Is not fatal if done by specialist in a properly equipped centre. In delhi we have many such centers. If you need any assistance it can be arranged. But not all patients of pain in joints need joint replacement. Most of them can be managed without surgery. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with a soft bedding on it. Any way take caldikind plus (mankind) 1tab odx10days paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days 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.
