Causes, symptoms and treatment for Knee Pain


Hello, I'm Dr. Duraj Prakash, Orthopedic Surgeon practicing in areas of South Delhi and specializing in the field of knee replacement surgery and Orthoscopic reconstruction procedure of knee and shoulder. Today I'll briefly talk about common problems of the knee and how to prevent degeneration of knee in people who're reaching middle age group. Knee arthritis is one of the common problems that we're facing as population ages and people want to beome and lead more and more active life. Generally knee arthritis has multiple reasons, why somebody gets knee arthritis others don't. It could be related to genetics, lifestyle, weight of the person and activity level. There is a small group of people where a neglected injury very rapidly damages the joint and gives rise to premature or early athritis.

The symptoms of knee arthritis are:
1. Pain
2. and Stiffness

Many people ust complain of morning stiffness and the issue becomes complicated if the person trips or falls because weak muscles fall in arthritis. Make sure that cause people trip and fall moee frequently. So the way to avoid is to maintain proper weight. In case someone has got early childhood deformities like bow legs and knock knees it should be appropiately corrected in younger age group. Then any injury which a person may sustain, it may look innocous, it may hurt for a couple of days and then becomes alright should never be neglected. If the problem is instability, if your knee feels it is going to slip out of the alignment on a rough surface you must go see an orthopedic surgeon.

Another group of people is ones who are suffering from Rheumatoid arthritis where the problem starts with fingers and small joints of hands and feet but gradually progresses to the knees. These people should regularly do exercise to maintain muscle strength and ensure that they take proper medication in time to prevent long term damage to the knee. Regular strengthening of the knee muscles, the thigh muscles which stabilizes the knee goes a long way in preventing any problem in knee joint. Even with mild arthritis if your knee and your thigh muscles are strong, your likelihood of getting a surgery is very rare. In addition when the muscles are strengthened not only the knee feels better, likelihood of fall also reduces to a great extent.

In those people where the knee is already damaged the technology now offers us many remedial measures starting from small penaul procedures to regenerate the cartilage to upcoming procedure like platelet rich plasma, stem cell therapy and reconstruction therapies ranging from many many ways of small surgery partial knee replacement and leading onto total knee rreplacement which everybody knows right now. The smaller procedures have a very big advantage in terms of safety, better function, smaller stay in the hospital and equally long functional life of the prosthesis. With the newer technology it is possible to treat these conditions but then the best remedy is to take step before the problem arises. So stay healthy, keep active and remain fit.

Many people experience a crackling, grating, or popping sensation when bending the knee. The medical term for this is knee crepitus. Occasional popping or cracking can be normal and is generally considered harmless. However, if the noise occurs regularly and is painful, it may indicate osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or patellar dysfunction. Homoeopathic constitutional treatment is curative for such conditions in minimum dose itself and without any side effects too. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

It could be due to cervical spondylosis this is quite a common condition rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days do neck & back (spine) exercises use of cervical collar will give you relief. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you will need other supportive medicines also. Do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

Hello, I am 25 year old Female, If I sit for more than 2 hours, it make me feel backache. What can I do for it?
Dear lybrate user, backache after 2 hours of sitting signifies either of 2 condition. First which is more likely is due to disc herniation, where sitting leads to increase in pressure at nucleus pulposus of disc, causing irritation of nerve of this material and hence pain or second which is less likely is facetal arthritis caused due to loading of posterior compartment of spine during sitting. In any of 2 condition you need to consult either orthopedician trained in spine or interventional pain specialist for clinical evaluation and appropriate treatment. Hope it helps.

The usual cause of low back pain is the sedentary lifestyle that we lead these days. There is hardly any movement. We remain seated most of the time and stand for very short periods of time. Unfortunately walking, running and cycling like activities are also not a part of our daily routine. To add to it, our diet consists more and more of junk food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and high fibre foods are consumed less and less. This is a worldwide trend and is seen across all ages and cultures. These daily practices lead to obesity. The increased body weight puts lot of pressure on the spine which has to bear all the extra unwanted weight. The back muscles which are already weak due to lack of exercise and wrong posture are unable to cope with this increased load. This causes pain in the back muscles. When it comes to the medicinal treatment, homeopathic medicines are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also very helpful in the chronic stage of back pain. It must be said here that homeopathy offers a much better alternative for the permanent cure for low back pain. The focus of the homeopath is not just to relieve the immediate pain but to also eliminate the root cause of the pain. That is precisely why the homeopath asks so many questions which may or may not seem related to your immediate problem. A common cause that is easily overlooked is the presence of stress in an individual. Mental stress can also contribute to low back pain and should be taken into account while taking the details of the patient. This is absolutely necessary if you want a lasting cure You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.

How much time knee bending takes after multiple ligament injury and meniscus tear.

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
How much time knee bending takes after multiple ligament injury and meniscus tear.
If a conservative, nonsurgical approach is taken, the pain and swelling of a torn meniscus should resolve within a few days. Recovery and rehabilitation becomes a long-term commitment, as does making certain that the muscles surrounding the knee are kept strong to promote joint stability. If knee arthroscopy is performed, the rehabilitation process balances swelling and healing. The goal is to return range of motion to the knee as soon as possible. Physical therapy is an important part of the surgery process, and most therapists work with the orthopedic surgeon to return the patient to full function as soon as possible. After surgery, once the swelling in the knee joint resolves, the goal of therapy is to increase the strength of the muscles surrounding the knee, return range of motion to normal, and promote and preserve stability of the joint. The prognosis for return to normal activity is good but depends upon the motivation of the patient to work hard with their physical therapist and to continue that work at home after formal therapy has been completed.

A game like football requires excessive energy. Proper use of muscles and joints. Before the game your friend must do proper warm up and stretching. And after the game cool down body and relax. Cramps means possible dehydration, so make sure to stay hydrated during, before and after the game.
