Dear lybrate-user, the pattern of pain you r telling cud be of sciatica. But no worries ayuvreda and panchakarma has remedy for you. Get a mri done to pin point the cause and site of pain. Meanwhile go for ayurveda's panchkarma therapy - we have many option for you - kati basti (specialised panchakarma procedure for backpains), localised massgae with herbal oils, localised medicated steam, pottali massage. Continue these procedures for atleast 15 days. Regular oiling of the joint will improve the lubrication also. These procedures will relax your back muscles and give strength to your nerves and muscles of back. Also start some yogic exercises - tadasana, dhanurasan, halasana along with these therapies. This will greatly help. Please avoid pushing / pulling heavy objects, long sittings, long two-wheeler drives. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. Please update with your valuable feedback after 15 days.\

Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

All About Meniscal Tears

All About Meniscal Tears

A meniscal tear is a typical injury occurring in the knee. The meniscus resembles a C-shaped plate (cartilage) that is rubbery in nature and pads your knee. Every knee contains two menisci, one each at the external and internal edge. The menisci helps in keeping your knee firm by adjusting your weight over the joint. A torn meniscus could keep your knee from working properly.

A meniscal tear is typically brought about by turning or twisting immediately, usually with the knee being twisted while the foot is firmly fixed. Meniscus tears occur in case one lifts heavy objects or during playing or other physical sports. The meniscus gets worn as you grow older. This can damage all the more effortlessly.

Symptoms:
The symptoms of meniscal tears include:

  1. Swelling
  2. Pain in the knee
  3. A tendency of knee to 'lock' or get stuck
  4. Popping sensation during the injury
  5. Difficulty in straightening and bending of the knee

Although there might not be much pain initially, but as the inflammation occurs, severe pain will be felt. A thorough examination would be conducted by the doctor where he would evaluate your injury and details of the x-rays. In severe cases, MRI scans might be required.

Treatment:
Details about the location and size of the tear would affect the treatment. In case the tear is small, the outer portion of the meniscus, also known as the 'red zone' is capable of healing itself on account of its healthy power supply. On the other hand, the 'white zone' which consists of the inner two-third part of the meniscus does not have a good supply, thus rendering the tear occurring in this region is incapable of healing by themselves.

Surgery is not required for all meniscal tears. Nonsurgical treatment is sufficient if the knee is stable and non locking. Recovery can be sped up by performing the following actions on the knee:

  1. Ice should be applied regularly to limit swelling and it is advised to be continued till the pain is relieved.
  2. Elevating: This should be done using a pillow while sitting or lying down.
  3. Compressing: A neoprene type sleeve or an elastic bandage should be used to limit the swelling.
  4. Resting: Limit exercises to walks if the knee hurts. Crutches should be used to soothe the pain.
  5. Medications: Consuming anti-inflammatory medications

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi As described by you, this is bad situation which needs to be addressed by an rheumatologist or an orthopaedic doctor fir diagnosis of joint disease.In all probability, ankylosing spondylosis seems a possibility, but blood test fir complete arthritis profile should be carried out. Treatment should be after diagnosis. You may continue with physical therapy, exercises, fomentation and pain meds. Best wishes.
