I am 64 year-old. I have been playing badminton for last 32 years. I play on un-cemented playground i. E. Kutcha ground. After playing for one and half hour, my right knee somewhat gets stiff. Sometimes somewhat gets swollen. My bone density is normal 114%. No pain at all. What should I do?

If it's just swelling, don't worry. Apply ice on knees. Do proper warm-up and cool down. Stiffness will go with cooling down and stretching exercises.

Muscle Dystrophy - How Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help in Curing it?

Muscle Dystrophy - How Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help in Curing it?

Muscular dystrophy is a rare disorder which results in the atrophy or degeneration of muscles. This happens as the proteins required by the body to build and maintain muscles are not produced within the body in a normal manner. Muscular dystrophy mostly affects boys and develops in early adolescence although it can affect people much younger or much later in life. Ayurveda has some great treatments which can allay the symptoms and provide relief to patients afflicted with this disease.

Treatment for Muscle dystrophy in Ayurveda
With a degenerative disease like Muscle dystrophy, simple medication won’t be able to cure or relieve symptoms. Even with conventional medicines muscle dystrophy can’t be cured, but the symptoms can be reduced. Ayurveda takes a holistic approach to correcting the problems which include oral medications, food as well as exercises in the form of yoga.


Herbs are a great way to put certain minerals within the body, which can help lessen the pain and symptoms. Some of the herbs which have been known to be effective in reducing pain and also helping with movement and day to day activities may include:

  1. Triphala
  2. Mansrohini
  3. Nirgundi
  4. Guduchi
  5. Ashwagandha and many others

However, there are no medications in readymade proportions which are specifically designed and prescribed according to the diagnosis of the patient. It also needs to be complemented with a proper diet also known as Mamsagni Rasayana.

Diet or Mamsagni Rasayana

This is a very tailored diet and supplement approach to create and put the required nutrients which will slow down the decay of muscles within the body and will also help build new muscle to slow down decay. These will include extracts from herbs which will be made into chemicals and then used to make dietary supplements.

Yoga and specialized physiotherapy exercises

Yogic postures combined with certain walking and standing postures performed over time can also help reduce the symptoms and lessen the rate of decay. Some of the exercises that are helpful for various activities are:

  1. Standing and movements: Padahastasana, Tad asana, Trikonasana, Vakrasana
  2. Sitting: Paschimottanasa, Vakrasana, Shashankasana
  3. To help with breathing: Ardha Shalabhasana, Pranayama, Bhramri Pranayama

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

I have class in 8th floor of my building. There is no lift. So we need to take stairs only. When im going on stairs I ll feel week and my legs will pain.

A muscle strain in one or more of the quadriceps muscles represents the most common cause of leg pain from stair climbing. Other possible injuries include inflammation of the rectus femoris tendon or iliotibial band syndrome. Other possible injuries include inflammation of the rectus femoris tendon or iliotibial band syndrome. When you start to notice that your legs feel weak all the time whenever you climb stairs, then it may indicate a more serious underlying condition. See a physiotherapist immediately if your symptoms aren't relieved by icing and rest. Best wishes.

Hello doc. I always have fatigue. .mere tangoo mai jaan hi nahi hote aur joints mai bhi especially wrists aur anckle mai. please help.

General Physician, Noida
You had cholecystectomy done. Because of that you are unable to digest fat. Fat is passed in faeces (toilet) and may have bulky foul smelling stools floating in water of pot. Along with fat fat soluble vitamins are also lost. Moreover Vitamin B-12 absorption may also be erratic. So take Vitamin B-12 (Neurokind OD) 1/2 tablet sublingual (under tongue) twice daily for about a year. Along with take Becadexamin 1 capsule daily for 1 year Do not take fats at all. Use skimmed milk. Take apple daily for iron. Do regular exercises or start playing badminton or tennis. Do dancing or swimming if you know. For allergies, take cetrizine or levocetrizine when required. You may get allergy screening tests done and if positive take specially prepared allergy desensitization vaccine. If this still feel weakness, take Flouxetine (Fludac 10 mg) once daily under medical supervision seeking advice from a qualified doctor.

I underwent an ACL operation on 8th December 2015. Then Physiotherapy for 2 months. I am still unable to run and sometimes I feel pain in the knee when I bend it completely or use stairs or do fast walking. I want to ask that after how much time, I could run or walk fastly or swim without pain. I am doing regular exercise of my knee for 15 mins like cardio, half Squats etc.

MD - Anaesthesiology
Anesthesiologist, Anand
Lybrate-user ji you should not run after the surgery for acl. Do not bend your knee more than 90 degree. Do not use stairs as far as possible. You can walk fast. You should be able to swim without pain. And most imp thing you should reduce your weight by minimum 10 kg.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your wife's symptoms may not be linked as lower back pain and stomach pain may be different. Please tell me duration of pain and mode of onset. I would also like to ask you if it is associated with any leg pain or any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias ( electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. Can you also enclose her x rays so that I can see them, how much distance can she walk and does she require pain killers regularly. Also send me the blood investigation reports so that I can also see if there is any deficiency? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
