considering your age & profession your knee pain may be due to osteoporosis. massage with hot sesame oil for 10 to 15 min 2 times a days after massage give hot fomentation for 5 min. improve diet . do light stretching exercise daily. start milk + 2 spoon cow ghee on empty stomach, dry fruits will help you , like akrod & badam(almond). start Ayurvedic calcium suppliment to strenghten joint . dry khajur is good source of calcium.

You must try to loose your weight first by avoiding carbohydrates, sugar fat etc. do massage if your knee at night daily with seasame oil. Also you may take Rhus Tix 30 thrice a day. It will be better if you may consult on line.

Is osteoarthritis a part of aging, and is there a way to reduce risks, even after age 50?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS

Hello lybrate user, yes in some cases osteoarthritis is a part of aging as the intervening ligaments and cartilages that separate the knee joint start to degenerate and the underlying bone starts getting exposed and rubbing each other causing pain with simple movements like squatting. Rest avoid sqautting and sitting cross legged hot water fomentation twice daily knee caps use quadriceps strengthening exercises (available on google image search) weight reduction if possible obviously prevention is better than cure so aim for a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly god bless you.

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).

Goodevening sir I have understood your question. What I would advice you to do is firstly take a session of 10 days of physiotherapy ultrasound treatment for your knee. Then continue with cold and hot packs daily for about 15 mins. After this your exercising should be in the right way. Please follow my steps for good knee stabilty as I list the exercises below, > isometric quadriceps exercises - that is you should press your knee own on a towel and hold for 10 seconds and then release. > place a rolled towel under your heel and press your heel down on the towel. Place your heel down for 10 seconds and then release. > then squeeze a towel in between your knees for 10 seconds. > lie down and raise your leg upto 45 degrees and not more than that and hold for few seconds. > do 10 knee bending exercises. All these exercises as I have listed below will help you to improve knee strength and stability. You must also be assure to do these exercises daily. Precautions to be taken - - kindly wear a knee cap on both your knees whenever you are going to play. This will protect your knee from any further damages and injury. - next after every game that you play (football) you should take an ice pack for your knee. The popping up sound that your hearing is due to the two joints rubbing against each other. Please follow the advice so that you achieve good health.

Hi, do quadriceps muscle strengthing exercise and hamstring stretching, if possible do cycling and squats it helps you in muscle strengthing, so learn all exercise from your physiotherapist and continue those exercise for 3 month, you will be fine.

Your daily habits or age may be the root of your knee problems. Some common home care techniques for knee pain that control inflammation and help to break the inflammatory cycle are protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation, glucosamine supplement has also may help, I can prescribe a detailed treatment plan.

Can Sleep Irregularity be a Sign of Depression?

BHMS
Homeopath
Ask Free Question
Depression is a clinical, mental and emotional condition that may give rise to feelings of hopelessness and chronic sadness. It slows down the way people process everyday activities and leads the patient to a sense of constant gloom and doom. It is a disabling mental condition as per who and may be caused due to reasons like genetics, changes in the balance of hormones, stress, grief, trauma and prolonged, chronic physical ailments.

Symptoms of depression are:

Sleep irregularity: It relates to either insomnia or oversleeping that is, either you sleep too much or do not sleep at all. This could be because of work or other stress in your personal or professional life.
Irritation or unnecessarily getting angry: You start losing your temper easily and that too for silly reasons. You think you are losing control.
Feeling hopeless and sad: The first signal or symptom is the feeling of hopelessness. In this, case the patient loses the hope in everything. They feel like being trapped in some kind of cage, from which they are not able to come out.
Lack of interest in anything: Everything seems to be of no use or interest, even your daily work. You don't want to do anything; even the things, which you loved to do like your hobbies and passions, which you no longer find interesting.

Here is a comprehensive list of homeopathic medicines which most doctors are likely to recommend for treating depression:

Sepia: This medicine is beneficial to women suffering from post-partum depression (sadness or emotional conflict after giving birth) and menopause. Feeling of solitude and hopelessness with no energy to continue with life are some common symptoms that can be reduced with Sepia.
Arsenicum album: This medicine is prescribed to control the symptoms like diarrhea, gastric problems, indigestion which patients often suffer from as a result of intense anxiety. Patients, appropriate for this medicine tend to be fastidious and restless. It is made of white arsenic and should be taken in prescribed potency because an overdose can cause gastroenteritis.

The above mentioned medicines are just some of the medicines, which should only be taken only after consulting your doctor, as causes and symptoms differ for each person.

Dear lybrate user...Anxiety with a feeling of being on the edge almost throughout the day causing significant functional impairment is suggestive of you having Anxiety Disorder. In your case not taking medications for anxiety disorder and just treating your insomnia will be a wrong management plan, as with anxiety a person will have difficulty falling asleep. Thus I would suggest to target and treat your anxiety and sleep problems simultaneously for a much better result. In case of your anxiety regarding sleep, I would suggest not to sleep during day at all, not to go to bed and force yourself to sleep during night time. Just wait and do some un-interesting work say reading some serious novel in a dim light away from your bed. Once you start feeling sleepy, get back to bed and sleep. Its a vicious cycle of not having sleep a night and you trying hard to sleep the next night thinking that sleep may not come. This forcing yourself to sleep is itself anxiety provoking and thus try not to go to bed until you feel sleepy. And yes if this is not sufficient than you may need the help of medications. Take care
