Dear lybrate-user, At your age, you might me suffering from adolescent anterior knee pain or patella tracking problem. It may be caused by recent change in shoes, new sports or change in technique whilst playing sports or flat foot. It is not clear from your post whether you are getting any pain from your knee joints or it is just the popping sounds. If you are just getting the sounds, there is no need to worry. If you are getting pain along with sounds it might be helped with strengthening exercises, rest, ice fomentation and probably with sole inserts.

Hello, being diabetic (even with normal sugar values) predisposes you to multiple conditions like shoulder degenerative tendinopathy, frozen shoulder which causes arm and shoulder pain. It would be better if it is evaluated furthur by proper examination and any investigation if required. Generalized body pain can be due to multiple causes most common being decreased bone strength (osteoporosis). It also requires furthur evaluation.

Take rest for some time. Let it heal. After few days start yoga specially surya namaskar , to tone up your muscles. Than after 2-3 months start playing or hard exercise. Have balanced and nutritious diet. Good luck.

Hello lybrate-user. Exercises itself help in preventing of wear and tear of joints. Still you can take chondroprotective drugs and calcium supplements to protect cartilages in joints and enhance joint life. Consult in private for prescription of such drugs.

Simple management is very helpful to this problem. 1st- do not sit in your chair all day, get up every 20 min and stretch. 2nd- watch your posture. 3rd- watch your weight. 4th- do some yoga like (bharadvajasana, dhanurasana, viparita karani) 5th- take vitamin d rich diet like (fish, yolks, cheese, milk, and sunshine).

Most of the patients of backache don't need surgery. They can be managed without operation. Proper remedial exercises along with some medicines go a long way in the management of the ailment.

My wife 45 yrs has occasional pain in legs and soles. Uric acid 5. 9. Hb 11.Please do help

BPTh/BPT, Credentialed Mckenzie therapist
Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Hiee, pain in legs and soles can b radiated from back. The nerves from the legs arise from the back so if there is any prob in the back u may feel pain in the legs and soles of feet with or without back pain. Tell her to b active and go for walks and maintain the back straight while sitting and walkin. Follow diet for uric acid. Avoid dals and pulses. I think this should help

1) Do massage with warm sesame oil or suitable oil for 15 min., afterwards take hot fomentation for 10 min. 2) Start natural calcium supplement. 3) Do regular stretching exercise 4) In yoga DO BHUJANGASAN, HALASAN & SURYANAMASKAR.

Dear lybrate-user I think you have muscle strain and it needs detailed evaluation you can apply ice for 20 minutes every hourly for 2-3 days and avoid anything which gives pain so that it recovers well and then only you can do your athletic activities.

Diploma in Acupuncture, Pranic Healing, MD - Acupuncture

Getting pain on left leg and joints in fingers at about 2 weeks 
Please suggest me a solution.
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. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise.

I am 29 years, male. I am suffering from knee joint pains from last 2 years. What should I do?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your knee pain could be due to certain reasons but common ones are chondromalacia, pain due to knee instability, inflammation etc. If there is no history of any injury, and no s/s of inflammation or infection like swelling, skin redness or local warmth on touching, then I will like to advise you for conservative management initially in form of: - intensive physical therapy with focus on strengthening of quadriceps and stretching of other group of muscles - gentle anti inflammatory medications like tab etoshine or tab paracetamol can be taken in small doses for 5-7 days - adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation as per requirement - ice packs at home for 3-4 times in a day and see how it goes for around 2 weeks time. If your condition does not improve, then we will have to get certain investigations done. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.
