Yes we can treat that without operation. If that won't lock your knee joint. Do strengthening exercise of knee and proprioception exercise.

MRI of Knee for My 18 years old cousin shows below findings :- 1. Patchy Areas of altered signal intensity with hypo-intense on T1/T2 and Hyperintensity on STIR seen involving distal femur. 2. Joint effusion seen in retro patellar, suprapatellar recess and tibia-femoral compartment. Is there something to worry? What may be reasons for this effusion and knee pain? Should we go for surgery or can it be cured with medication? Request for advise.

5 Homoeopathic Remedies For Gouty Arthritis!

5 Homoeopathic Remedies For Gouty Arthritis!

Gout is a form of arthritis and occurs because of excessive uric acid in the body. There are proteins in the diet known as purines, and when they are metabolised, uric acid is released. When there is an excessive amount of purines in the diet, the body is unable to metabolise all of the produced uric acid. This excessive production or repaired metabolism can lead to gout. These get deposited in the joints as crystals in various joints, especially of the big toe.

Symptoms:

  1. The joints, most frequently the big toe, are painful, swollen, red, and very warm to the touch
  2. The big toe is known as podagra
  3. The pain is a strong, shooting pain, very severe in nature
  4. The patient’s description is very diagnostic of gout
  5. Other joints could be affected including ankles, knees, and hands

Treatment:
Gout, as seen from above, is not just excessive uric acid in the body. There could be various reasons leading to this problem. Therefore, homoeopathy believes that the underlying problem needs to be evaluated and treated for the symptoms to disappear. The following are some commonly used remedies:

Colchium:

  • Useful in both acute and chronic cases of gout
  • Intense pain in the big toe, where the patient would not allow touching it
  • The toe is stiff, swollen, red, and hot
  • The pain is worse at night and during warm weathers
  • The patient also may feel feverish and cold internally

Benzoic acid:

  • These patients usually have offensive urine, which is evident from a distance
  • The urine may be brown in colour.
  • The pain in the great toe is tearing, and the knees may also be affected, which also are painful and swollen.
  • Any movement causes a cracking sound which increases with movement.
  • The patient likes to keep the affected area covered, and opening it to air may worsen the symptoms.

Sabina:

  • Useful in females, who may also have other feminine disorders (for instance, uterine issues) in addition to gout
  • The toes and heels will have shooting pain which is worse in warm surroundings
  • The affected joints also appear red and shining.

Berberis vulgaris:
These people present with warm, bright yellow or blood red urine with sediments that could be red/reddish yellow.

Ledum pal:

  • The pain travels from down below, for instance, starts with the feet and moves up to the knees and the limbs
  • Small joints like the ball of the great toe and ankles are more affected by lack of warmth and inability to tolerate warmth
  • Applying a cold towel or cloth may help relieve the pain.

Hi Sir, I am 50 years old. My knee hurts when I climb up and down the stairs. This has continued for the last 12 years. I do take regular calcium tablets and walk for an average of 3.5 km to 4 km in the morning. My height is 5 ft 7 inches and am 70 kg in weight. I am slim overall but have heavier hips compared to my body. Anything to do can you suggest to improve. No sugar, BP or thyroid.

It is mechanical problem involving your knee joints and medicines hardly has any role. Main thing is how to reduce further damage to knee joints. Reduce your weight by 4-5 kg. Avoid postures which cause pain specially squatting, sitting cross legged, reduce use of stairs as far as you can.

How can a young boy aged 18 prevent arthritis after having acl reconstruction surgery?
Usually we recommend patient to undergo ACL reconstruction in symptomatic patient due to ACL injury to prevent early arthritis changes. That's you already undergone. You continue physiotherapy as advised by operative surgeon. Needs some more information regarding date of injury and operation and current knee status like Range of motion of knee joint.

Rheumatic arthritisIt is called as Rheumatic arthritis. If your pain is more in the distal joints, ie. In the upper limbs if the pain is present in the fingers/wrist and in the lower limbs it the pain is present in the toes/ ankle, then we shall definitely say it is Rheumatic arthritis. Wear elbow brace and wrist brace which will make her to feel warm and that will make the joints become firm. Hot water fermentation will help Knee cap will also help to prevent the damaged cartilages. If your pain is more in the distal joints, ie. In the upper limbs if the pain is present in the fingers/wrist and in the lower limbs it the pain is present in the toes/ ankle, then we shall definitely say it is Rheumatic arthritis. Which joints you have pain? If your proximal joints (ie. Shoulder, hip & knee has pain) then you can pour hot (warm) water in that area to reduce the inflammation. If you have pain in the distal joints ie. Wrist, fingers, ankle, toes then you can wear either elbow brace or wrist brace which will help you to feel warm and very protective. And also immerse the distal joints in the hot water tub which will help you to reduce the pain. Consult the near by physiotherapy clinic and also consult a general physician to check with your ESR levels to check whether you have inflammation The sound what you hear is called as Crepitus /ˈkrɛpɪtəs/ (also termed crepitation) is a medical term to describe the grating, crackling or popping sounds and sensations experienced under the skin and joints or a crackling sensation due to the presence of air in the subcutaneous tissue. Popping Knees and Crackling Knuckles. Occasionally hearing pops, snaps, and crackles when you bend your knees doesn’t necessarily mean you have arthritis. The kneecap (patella) is the small, convex bone that sits at the front of the knee, shielding the joint.

6 Common Causes Of Knee Pain!

6 Common Causes Of Knee Pain!

Knee pain is characterized by a feeling of pain in the knee joint caused by injury or overuse. The knee joint consists of small bone structures, the kneecap, supporting ligaments and cartilage of the knee. This joint bears the full weight of the body, which makes it very vulnerable to injury.

Causes of knee pain

Knee pain is usually caused by injuries to the knee such as exposure to a direct force on the knee, abnormal twisting of the knee or falling on your knees. Some causes of knee pain are -

  • Knee strains and sprains - Overworking the knee joints can damage the tissues of the knee joint resulting in knee sprains and strains
  • Osteoarthritis - it is condition where the protective cartilage around the kneecap is damaged, resulting in knee pain
  • Bursitis - Excessive movement of the knee or kneeling down for extended periods can irritate the bursa (a fluid sac below the skin above the knee joint) that causes swelling and pain, thereby giving rise to this condition
  • Gout - This condition is characterized by the accumulation of uric acid in crystal form around the knee joint, causing inflammation and pain
  • Tendon disorders - Tendons connect the muscles to the bones, and overworking the knee can cause the tendons around
    the knee to become sore and painful
  • Kneecap dislocation - Injuries may cause the kneecap to shift out of its position, this causes swelling and pain in the knee joint

Symptoms of knee pain

Severe knee pain can restrict movements such as walking or standing. The symptoms vary according to the extent of the damage suffered by the knee. Most common symptoms of knee pain are problems in climbing stairs, inability to extend the knees, limping and swelling of the knee joint. In some cases, knee pain may also cause fever. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I will suggest you to take vitamin supplements properly and plan for a surgery after clinical examination for cure and in my view it is not a genetic defect.
