Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping ball underneath the knee and keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone.

Hello. I understand that your knee pain problem. I advise you to continue woth your current medicines and I would like to suggest doing some knee exercises. They are the best ones for curing your knee pain. As a part of aging, your calcium levels are bound to go down and that is why knee pain is a commn problem. This can be surely cured. Perform the following exercises: 1. Press the knee down under a towel and hold it for 5-10 secs and relax it. You are targeting the main muscle of the knee, quadriceps which usually weakens after pain. DO 10 times on each knee. 2. Press the heels down on the towel and hold it for 5-10 secs. Here you target hamstrings muscle which is at the back of your thighs. These two are the important exercises. 3. Also, move your ankles up and down for 10-20 times. Repeat for 5 times. DO slow and gentle movemnts Remember, the key to get the best result is doing slow and controlled movements so that you specifically target the affected muscles. Feel free to ask more questions. Thank you.

I am 60 yrs old male suffering from limb girdle muscular deystrophy. Have you any treatment for this disease?

Dear , there is no known treatment for muscular dystrophy. Please don' t be fooled by quacks claiming to give you complete cure. Excessive exercising will worsen this condition. Light physiotherapy helps to maintain limb mobility. Your orthopedic doctor can prescribe you some supporting braces depending on the severity of your condition.

What are the things that aggravate or ameliorate it and etc. Still if you want you may try taking homoeopathic medicine nux vomica 30 3 doses stat. For better prescription consultation is advisable.

Weight reduction, back bending extension exercises and avoiding forward bending without lifting heavy weights can reduce the severity or even banish the pain. Sleep on a thin non spongy mattress. Traction to the lumbosacral spine may help a lot.

Pain in Stiches - When You Should See Your Doctor?

Pain in Stiches - When You Should See Your Doctor?

Stitches or sutures act as a closure for either surface wounds or deep wounds. Procedure to close a deep wound comprises of sewing the two edges and applying stitches under the skin surface.

Catagories of sutures

  1. Non-absorbable stitches: Such stitches are applied in case of skin wounds or internal wounds. Such stitches get healed quickly and are easy to remove. Non-absorbable stitches are made of natural fibers or synthetic threads like nylon polypropylene. As the name suggests, these stitches are either permanent or persist for a long time.
  2. Absorbable stitches: Such stitches are applied on layers, which have the property of healing quickly. They are very firm during the initial days. Then they start getting dissolved in the body.

Precautions taken by medical team before applying stitches to prevent infection

  1. Careful checking of nose for occurrence of germs before the start of operation.
  2. Skin must be cleansed prior to surgery.
  3. Sanitizing hands prior conducting the surgery.
  4. Usage of germ free gloves and sterile clothes while applying sutures.
  5. Prescribing antibiotics to the patients who may fear high risk of infection.

Precautions to be taken by patient to prevent infection

  1. Take a bath prior to surgery.
  2. Avoid using razor at the surgical site. The same can be carried out by using clippers by the surgery team itself.
  3. Keep all your jewellery aside before the operation starts. Do not apply nail polish.
  4. It is advised to cover up the wound. Try to keep the adjacent areas germ free. This is a crucial step in avoiding infection.
  5. Visit your doctor at once on finding redness around the wound.

When to see the doctor
Pain up to a certain threshold is normal. In case pain gets unbearable, the scene can be alarming. It may be an indication of infection. Taking immediate remedial steps is necessary to avoid infection or any other side effects post the surgery. On meeting with any of the following signs, it is better to consult doctor at once.

  1. If the skin around the wound gets swollen.
  2. If you detect redness around the wound.
  3. If the pain becomes unbearable.
  4. If the wound starts developing pus.
  5. If your body temperature increases abnormally or if you have fever.
  6. If you observe red streaks around the wound.
  7. If in case a stitch gets opened up and the edges of the suture start widening. This is the most alarming sign. In case a suture gets opened, you must immediately seek a remedy.

Ask your doctor for the precautions you can take to avoid experiencing any of the above signs. If you come across such alarming symptoms, rush to the nearest hospital and get the appropriate treatment.
