Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Numbness sitting cross legged is common because in that position your nerve gets compressed that is why you feel numb. So you actually require no treatment for this. If you are having numbness while normal activities like sitting, walking etc, the it becomes significant and we will have to evaluate you for that. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr. Akshay kumar saxena Consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi.

My mother is 50 years old and suffering from knee pain. How can I treat my mother?

My mother is 50 years old and suffering from knee pain. How can I treat my mother?
Id she has not had any injury to the knee then at this age it is most likely to be degenerative pathology. This needs to be confirmed with xrays. Blood investigation to rule out inflammatory arthritis may be required if there is family history of ra. The first line of management in degenerative knee pain is conservative with physiotherapy and pain control with over the counter simple analgesic.

Hello doctor, My dad aged 59 is suffering from severe pain in the knee joints and low back for the past 10 years. It's an occupational hazard but even after retiring from his job, he still gets the pain while walking or lifting things. It's so severe that it disturbs sleep and he moans all night. Can you please suggest a good remedy for this.

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.

Try the tips:: 1. Ensuring proper evacuation of bowels. Constipation should be avoided at all cost. Include ghee in your diet. 2. Applying heat on affected areas will help to relieve pain and stiffness. 3. Take light foods and avoid excess oily foods and curds. 4. Avoid day sleeping. 5. Yoga asanas such as Pawana muktasana, Bhujangasana, Dhanurasana, Paschimottanasana, Vakrasana are beneficial for this disease. 6. Practice Pranayama such as Nadi shodhana, Chandrabhedi Sheethali & Bhramari. 7. For dry fomentation of the affected region, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain.

Wrist Fracture - Understanding Causes and Symptoms

Wrist Fracture - Understanding Causes and Symptoms

Wrist fracture is a medical term used to describe a broken wrist bone. Wrist is composed of 8 small carpal bones and lower ends of the two forearm bones, such as Radius & Ulna. The fracture may occur in any of the 10 bones that make up the wrist. While some fractures can be severe, most fractures are tiny in nature. The fractures, which are severe, tend to render the bone unstable and a cure for this condition might require a surgery. Open fractures occur when the broken bone spike juts out through the skin. This might lead to an infection in the wounded region.

Causes of Wrist Fracture

  1. The most basic cause of a wrist fracture is injury. Any fall on your outstretched hand (FOOSH) and you might have to nurse a fractured wrist. This type of fracture is common among sportsmen. 
  2. People suffering from osteoporosis have a high risk of getting a wrist fracture. 
  3. Traumatic accidents might also cause severe wrist fractures. 
  4. Repetitive use of wrists leads to inflammation of the tendons present in the wrists (tendonitis). 

Symptoms of Wrist Fracture

A wrist fracture has symptoms that can be extremely painful. The pain escalates whenever you try to move your wrist or flex it, even if you are just flexing your fingers. Sometimes your hand or arm may even become extremely numb when you fracture the wrist. The muscles in the area become tender and swell up. It is almost impossible to move the wrist after it gets fractured. The fracture causes the wrist or rather the hand to appear deformed. The most common deformity being a Dinner fork deformity (Colles' Fracture). The area around the fracture may experience bruising and a fractured wrist also affects the blood flow in the area. You might even injure your ligaments, tendons, muscles or nerves. 

To confirm and check the level of severity, you are generally asked to get an X-Ray done. In order to get a more detailed look at the fracture, you might have to undergo CT or MRI scans as well. Usually, in order to treat a fracture, you will have to wear a splint or a cast and move your hand as least as possible. But keep moving your fingers otherwise they might get stiff. 

Most cases of wrist fractures recover well with a very good return to function.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am 40 year old from last six month I have pain in my hip bone its very painful while sitting.

It may be due to wrong sitting posture. Correct your posture whether you are sitting or travelling in a vehicle (2 wheeler). Also do hip rotation in the morning. Oil massage and fomentation will also help.

Hello lybrate user, in that case you will have to tell me about your complains and the report as it is written. Generally knee ligament injuries can be managed conservatively but some will require surgical management in the form of arthroscopic surgery. God bless you.

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis that is found mostly in old age group. It is also known as degenerative arthritis as the cartilage that covers the ends of your bones starts to deteriorate over time.

Causes behind this disease vary from Joint overuse to injuries to hereditary. Over weight people or people suffering from Obesity face a higher risk of developing osteoarthritis  .

Joints like knees, hips, and lower spine are commonly affected by osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is classified in two types:

Primary Osteoarthritis: This type is commonly visible in old age people and is generated because of the growing age that deteriorates the cartilage around the bones.
Secondary Osteoarthritis: is mostly hereditary or is caused by other pre-existing condition or disorder like obesity, surgery of the joints, diabetes, gout, etc.

Symptoms of Osteoarthritis:

1.Pain in the joints
2.Stiffness in the joints
3.Reduced mobility
4.Weakness in the muscles

I am a 47 year old woman. I have been having severe body ( specially backpain ) past a week. Could you please suggest a safe home remedy for this problem as I am tired of taking strong medicines.

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. As I tell to all my patients with back pain due to degeneration in spine: - maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - hot fomentation can be done at home with bottle/diathermy belt 3-4 times in a day - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. Do not bend forward acutely especially in morning, do not lift heavy weight and do not travel on uneven surfaces for a long time till your back pain is there. The mainstay of treatment remains how much your exercise and maintain an active lifestyle. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena
