Hi the knee is the largest weight-bearing joint in the body and takes significant stress when an individual walks, runs, or plays sports. Pain with bending the knee is a sign of injury or damage within the joint like arthritis, patellar tendonitis. Etc. Visit physiotherapist for diagnosis and treatment or consult me via lybrate. Best wishes.

Should You Undergo a Total Joint Replacement for Arthritis?

Should You Undergo a Total Joint Replacement for Arthritis?

Debilitating inflammation in the joints and its surrounding tissue usually characterize arthritis. This ailment can greatly weaken the body. At the point when joints are seriously influenced by joint pain, there are a number of treatment methods that may be available for the patient. Pain relievers, physiotherapy and other forms of treatment can help in offering relief. Yet, when these methods fail, one can go in for replacement surgery of the affected joint. This may not just lessen or eliminate the pain experienced but it can also it can reestablish better strength in the joint. Hip, knee, and shoulder joint substitutions are a portion of the more normal surgeries suggested when managing joint pain.

Joint Replacement Surgery for Various Joints: Arthritis can affect a variety of joints in various ways. In the shoulder, this can be found in the humerus (the upper arm bone) and a bit of the scapula (the shoulder bone). In the knee, it includes the finishes of the femur and tibia (the thigh bone and shin bone, separately) and the patella (the knee top). In the hip, the influenced zones are the femur and the attachment in the pelvic bones in which it rests (the hip bone socket). In simple words, an aggregate joint trade or replacement for joint pain includes replacing the harmed joint surfaces with simulated segments artificially.

Ideal Candidate: In the event that your joint pain is progressed yet you are generally healthy, joint substitution might be a choice. Notwithstanding, you should take the advice of an accomplished orthopedic pro who can give you moderate treatment choices and other negligibly intrusive ways to deal with the condition before resorting surgery.

As a rule, you may not be a decent candidate of the replacement if:

  • You have inadequately controlled diabetes
  • You are a chain smoker
  • You are extremely chubby
  • You have encountered contaminations in the influenced ligament joint before
  • The best contender for a ligament joint replacement surgery includes patients who:
  • Have joint pain that is extreme
  • Are encountering a debilitating effect in their personal life due to the painful symptoms
  • Have discovered moderate medicines, for example, mitigating drugs and non-intrusive treatment to be ineffectual
  • Are willing to effectively and regularly participate in a recovery program after surgery

The accomplishment of a joint substitution surgery relies on upon the stability of the remaining parts of the joint. In the event that the joint has endured a few diseases, or in the event that it has experienced a few surgeries, it may not be sufficiently solid to withstand a joint replacement procedure. What's more, if you there are immune system disorders or long ailments like diabetes at play, then there may be little chance of aligning with the new joint.

What to Expect During ACL Surgery Recovery?

What to Expect During ACL Surgery Recovery?

ACL Surgery is basically Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction, which is carried out for patients suffering from damaged ligaments which can lead to stiffness, pain and decreased mobility among a host of other symptoms and ailments. This kind of surgery aims at repairing the ACL with the use of grafts taken from other parts of the patient’s body. These grafts are used to replace the damaged ligaments.

Read on to know what you can expect in the recovery phase following an ACL surgery.

  1. Rehabilitation exercises: The rehabilitation process starts right after the surgery when the patient is given muscle strengthening exercises right after being wheeled back into the room from the operation theatre. These exercises will be given to the patient by the doctor or the physiotherapist who will show the correct way to do them and what all to avoid while doing them. Also, a gradual walking program will be started where the patient will first be helped when it comes to walking indoors, and then taken outdoors to practice walking on more natural terrain. Other motions can also be introduced gradually to exercise.
  2. Crutches: The patient may be asked to use crutches for a while right after the surgery. This is usually done to ensure that the body and the knees are strong enough to support full weight carriage and bearing without putting pressure on the newly operated region. Full weight bearing usually comes about within ten days after the surgery, and until then the patient is asked to take it easy.
  3. Knee extension: In the first few weeks after the procedure, the patient will experience swelling or inflammation in the area as well as some amount of trepidation when it comes to using the knee extension. The patient will be asked to do ninety degree knee flexicons before graduating to full knee extension gradually. In this phase, right after the surgery, the patient will also be encouraged to gain back control of the quadriceps as well as patellar mobility.
  4. Swelling: In the first two to three weeks after the surgery, there will be some amount of swelling. Usually, in the first two weeks after the surgery, the focus is on controlling and preventing any undue swelling and inflammation with elevation and ice.
  5. Strength and confidence: Once the initial three to four weeks are over, the focus will shift towards strengthening the core muscles with running and jogging for short periods. This will also improve the patient’s confidence in the restructured knee.

Ensure that you have a detailed discussion with your caregiver and orthopaedic specialist so that you are mentally prepared for recovery and rehabilitation.

With ageing, knee and leg pain becomes a common thing esp for females. Make sure you get enough calcium in your meal. You can start with knee press, ankle press exercises to avoid such pain. These exercises are to be repeated three times a day, 10 reps each exercise.

Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- 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. Sports Taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold).

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned back pain associated with radiating leg pain as your main symptom. If you have these pains with no other neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - you can also take medications for neuropathic symptoms like tab pregabalin or tab gabapentin in small doses for your radiating pain for around 2 weeks - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home initially focusing on swd/ift for back and tens for leg pain. - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Dear, sometimes the bones at fracture site are unable to form good new bone. In this case your nail broke due to continuous micro movement at the fracture site. Your doctor did the right thing to revise the fracture, freshen the edges and put in a healthy bone graft from the pelvis. Pelvis bone has more healing potential than femur. Send me a picture of your xrays so that I can give a better opinion.

Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Press the point on the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from toe in the foot 20 times by pressing and releasing with a blunt edge of a pen. Further rotate your foot clockwise and anticlockwise 10 times. Massage your leg with both hands.

Myelopathy And Its Causes!

Myelopathy And Its Causes!

Myelopathy refers to any neurological deficit pertaining to the spinal cord. The three most common types of myelopathy are Cervical myelopathy, Lumbar myelopathy and Thoracic myelopathy. Here are the causes and symptoms of myelopathy.

Causes:

  1. Injury: This is a very common cause of myelopathy. Any type of accident or even a traumatic event can cause myelopathy and perhaps even paralysis.
  2. Spinal stenosis: This is a condition in which the spinal cord narrows and is one of the leading causes of myelopathy.
  3. Degenerative disc disorders: As you get older, disc disorders are more likely to occur, as well as other conditions which affect the spinal column, such as osteoporosis, etc. 
  4. Tumor: It is a little known fact that tumors very often do cause myelopathy. 
  5. Multiple sclerosis: There are many other diseases, which may cause myelopathy and multiple sclerosis is one of them.

Symptoms: 

There are many indications that you are suffering from myelopathy and should consult a medical expert. Here are some of them: 

  1. Change in coordination: It refers to the state, wherein, all of a sudden you may find it harder to move certain limbs the way you want to. Sometimes, it may affect your whole body as well. 
  2. Sudden muscle weakness: It is highly likely, that if you have myelopathy then you will experience sudden weakness in your muscles. 
  3. Decreased hand-eye coordination: This is perhaps the biggest indicator of myelopathy since hand-eye coordination is directly linked to your spinal cord and brain and if they are not functioning properly then hand-eye coordination will be affected.

These are just some of the symptoms of myelopathy, however, the doctor cannot diagnose myelopathy until he conduct certain tests. These tests include MRI scans and other tests as well as a regular physical check-up along with a check of your medical history. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopaedics.

In this case, you should buy heel cushions (easily available in stores /online). Silicone heel cushions are small pads that slip under the heel on top of the normal insole in shoes. The main objective of the silicone seat cushion is to act as isolation pads whereby they absorb some of the shock that passes through as the foot hits the floor when activities such as running or walking are undertaken. These pads are washable and reusable that deliver long-lasting, tough and resistant material.

7 Step Rehabilitation
We have created a revolutionary 7 Step Program to eliminate your back pain and keep it away. Through this program you can recover fully and keep future pain at bay.

To fully recover from an injury or an episode of physical pain everybody needs to move through 7 stages of recovery. Future injury, greater health costs and ongoing frustration are assured if shortcuts are taken or treatment is prematurely ceased.

Every individual will commence at different stages of this process. Some will move more quickly through some stages whilst others move more slowly. Everybody is different.

Step 1 - Tissue Normalization
First we bring the injury under control, so your tissues can begin to heal. This helps the injured part to function smoothly with the rest of the body.
Step 2 - Muscle Activation
An injury is extremely painful, and makes movement difficult. By activating injured muscles early, you'll recover sooner.
Step 3 - Static Control
Develop sufficient strength and control of your injured body part to hold a neutral position whilst other parts are moving.
Step 4 - Dynamic Control
Develop the strength to control the injured body part during movement. By increasing endurance, you'll be able to maintain dynamic control.
Step 5 - Functional Rehabilitation
You're well on your way to full recovery. This stage customises your rehabilitation to your specific needs.
Step 6 - Functional Fitness
This stage is ensures you have the necessary physical fitness, power, endurance, body awareness, strength and flexibility to perform physically.
Step 7 - Maintenance Program
To make sure you don't experience a recurring injury, we tailor a program to keep you fighting fit, monitor your progress and continue to supervise rehabilitation.
