Advice. 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).

My doctor said that I am having grease problem in my knee and I am only 21 years old. The solution of this is to inject supplement in my knee which is applicable for 2 years only. Please tell me the reason, cause and another treatment of this problem (if any). Tell me about this supplement and the whole procedure. My test reports are normal like vitamin D test, rheumatoid arthritis (negative), thyroid (normal) and uric acid, blood report but in the tomorrow xray's report (skyline view) my right knee compressed and left knee normal.

Hello sir, my mother is suffering from rheumatoid arthritis from so many years. She is feeling pain at knees and joints like fingers, neck, back etc. I heard that there is no permanent cure for this, is this true? Someone said if we use English medicine chances of heart attacks are more. For osteoarthritis there is knee replacement which will have high success rate, but not in the case of rheumatoid arthritis. Do you have any suggestions about this? What should I do now?

What are the different currently available technologies with their pros and cons for a knee replacement operation ?

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
Total knee replacement surgery is, safe if done by specialist in a properly equipped center. Nova specialty hospital is one such hospital in delhi I am associated with. Apollo hospital has taken over it. The risk of surgery is no more than the risk of crossing road. Any way, sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Do knee exercises. It will have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

Knee pain- reasons can be-* cold weather *sitting in inconvenient posture constantly, without changing your position or without movement, *wearing ill fitting sandals, *lack of exercise or *internal disorder like arthritis. Point to observe- * if you have difficulty in climbing stairs, take lift while going upstairs. If there is no lift, go up slowly. * if it is due to strain of games or injury, take rest. * if it is due to obesity, reduce weight. * if it is due to constant sitting at a particular posture, change posture and engage in slow walk. * walking regularly at slow pace without unduly straining helps as it improves blood circulation around knee and eases the joint. *you can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take bryonia 200---twice daily morning and evening and give feedback after 7 days

Knee pain after playing badminton is usually because of either meniscus tear or a ligament tear. Do you feel any instability while walking? Instability is because of ligament injury or meniscus injury. If there is click inside knee joint, usually it is because of meniscus tear. Apply ace, use crepe bandage. Best thing to do is visit a doctor - an orthopaedic surgeon who is Specialist in knee surgery. He will clinically examine you for your problem and decide treatment. You may need MRI. Either you will be given some medicine and rest or you will be referred to Therapist for Exercises. Follow protocol provided by orthopaedic Surgeon.

You have to wear corrected arch supported mcr chappals which will definitely be good for you and for knock knees you have to strengthen the knee by doing simple exercises. Knee cap should be worn to correct the knocked knees.

I have pain below knee in the bone please help is it a strain or something else ?

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
You should see an orthopaedic surgeon first so that he can evaluate where exactly the pain is and advise appropriate tests for the cause of pain. Sometimes low Vitamin D causes bone pains so get serum vitamin D levels(blood test) done and see the doctor with the report.
