Back of knee pain, also known as posterior knee pain can stem from a wide variety of causes, not all of which involve damage to the knee joint. Degenerative joint disease, namely the various forms of arthritis, can directly and indirectly contribute to pain behind the knee. One of the more common causes of pain in the back of the knee joint, specifically, is a popliteal synovial cyst, which is also known as a baker’s cyst. Often, these cysts go away without any treatment. But if that is not the case, the first course of treatment would usually involve addressing the underlying condition. Conservative treatment methods for relieving this behind the knee pain may involve using ice, compression, crutches and engaging in physical therapy. It is important to get the advice of a professional before getting started on a mode of treatment. Please see a nearby orthopaedic or Physiotherapist for the assessment and management of your knee pain.

Hi, This is Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. The treatment depends upon severity of pain and its cause. If degeneration is not much and there is no significant pressure on cord or roots, then physical therapy with medications will be useful. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay akshaysaxena2004@yahoo.co.in

Consult an orthopaedic doctor. If required get a x-ray done for back. It may be due to some stress and not some thing major. Medicines and exercises should help.

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. Ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. It is suggestible to wear lumbo sacral belt which would help you to build the abdominal muscle tone which itself would make you feel better. You can also wear mcr chappals which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back.

Hi Consult a neurologist for treating sub cortical oedema, which may be due to hematoma, or collection due to infection, which can be diagnosed by MRI or Ct scan and CSF fluid examination through lumbar puncture. Possibly decompression treatment would relieve pressure built up in the brain front parietal region which houses cognition, behavior control center to account for abnormal changes Decompression is possible as per diagnosis, medications or and draining if necessary, a neurophyscian or neurologist surgeon shall do that best wishes.

6 Tips To Prevent Arthritis

6 Tips To Prevent Arthritis

Arthritis is a very painful disease. It restricts you from doing a lot of the activities you would love to engage in. However, there are steps you could take to reduce the chances of it happening to you.

Here are some tips, which help you in preventing Arthritis:

  1. Take Omega-3 fatty acids: Research proves that the regular consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids, present in fish, result in decreased risks of rheumatoid arthritis. Omega-3 fatty acids are also found in foods such as olive oil and walnuts.
  2. Take Vitamins and olive oil: Vitamins are crucial, especially A, C and D. Vitamin A can be found in carrots. vitamin D can yet again be found in fish while vitamin C can be found in strawberries, mangoes, pineapples and oranges. Olive oil is also useful because it contains polyphenols which reduce the chances of developing arthritis.
  3. Eat ginger and broccoli: Ginger and broccoli are two of the most therapeutic foods for various reasons and the chances of getting arthritis are also proven to reduce due to these foods.
  4. Avoid injury: Although this is very hard to do sometimes, avoiding injuries do reduce your chances of getting arthritis.
  5. Control your weight: This is very important, especially for your knees. It has been proven by researchers at John Hopkins University that if you are 10 kg overweight, then 30 to 60 extra kilograms of weight fall on your knees.
  6. Exercise: Strengthening your muscles around your joint decreases the pressure on the joint. If there is less pressure on the joint, then the chances of arthritis are reduced. The best way to decrease pressure on the joint and strengthen your muscles is to exercise.
