Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am dr akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You will have to elaborate your problem as to a detailed discussion of your back pain which means 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. Please also tell me about any associated symptoms like fever, weight loss etc. What medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. Per se caesarian section surgery does not lead to back pain in an individual but it is muscular imbalance which leads to it. Are you into intensive exercises, posture care etc? have you got your calcium and vitamin d levels tested, if yes then please send me the reports. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards dr akshay kumar saxena consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi

My leg  pains every a day sometime feels like put in very uncomfortable when sleep or fold my legs.
: 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.

Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water.

Hello lybrate user you can start with knee joint relaxation exercise s follow by knee strengthening exs. Knee jt plays an important role in weight bearing and daily activities of body. You are doing only strengthening knee exs. Need a break and slow exs session to prevent injury. Hot formentation also helpful to reduce pain and spasm.

I'm having ankle twist when I played football. What should I do to cure the pain.
Hi ~use elastic bandages (such as an ace bandage) to wrap your ankle. ~wear a brace to support your ankle. ~use crutches for walking till swelling and pain subsides. ~keep your foot raised above your heart with pillows when resting or sleeping to reduce swelling. ~get plenty of rest and do not put weight on your ankle. Still you don't get relief than visit physiotherapist as physical examination /xray may be required for further investigation. Do reply for detailed treatment plan. Wishing you a good health.

I am suffering from pain in my back side of neck and shoulder. Now from last five days I felt that there is pain in my joints of knee and ankles. And apart from that I feel that there is rise in temperature in my body i.e. Feel like having fever inside my body and having pain in my body. And my body is sweating more due to having fever in body and it sweats more when the body temperature comes down. Can you please suggest me for treatment of the problem ? And one thing I forgot to note that it has started due to staying in office for a long time with lower room temperature (20°c) with ac climate for last two months.

Firstly check a fever. Do neck stretching exercise and hot fermentation avoid toward bending and computer work. Tk calcium supplements and do hot fermentation of knee. If fever is not then do stretching exercise of neck and shoulder for knee. Put a towel roll under knee and press for 10 second then release repeat 10 time.

You are most likely suffering from myofascial pains involving neck and shoulder muscles. You should consult a pain specialist and get intramuscular stimulation done. This therapy is safe and effective to relieve muscle spasm and stress. Meanwhile observe these tips to get relief: 1. Take anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen round the clock for 5 days 2. Apply warm fomentation over affected areas. 3. Do neck and shoulder exercises once pain is relieved. Consult again for further queries.

10 Signs Which Suggest You Might Require A Knee Replacement Surgery!

10 Signs Which Suggest You Might Require A Knee Replacement Surgery!

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS A SIMPLIFIED VERSION FOR PATIENTS UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE:

Knee replacement surgery- which is also known as knee arthroplasty, helps to relieve the pain in the knee thereby restoring the knee function. During this procedure, a surgeon cuts the damaged cartilage and bone from the kneecap, thighbone, and shinbone and replaces the same with an artificial joint comprising of high-grade plastics, alloys, and polymers. A patient/surgeon has the liberty to choose the type of knee joint he/she prefers based on factors such as weight, age, overall health etc.

Signs that might indicate a knee replacement surgery

  1. The pain in the knee keeps coming back all the time.
  2. The knee aches after a brisk walk or during an ongoing exercise session.
  3. The mobility of a person has gradually decreased over time as compared to last few years.
  4. A supporting cane or medication isn’t delivering the desired support or pain relief.
  5. The knee tends to stiffen when a person sits for a long time. Example- witting through a movie or sitting in the car for too long proves to be a major hurdle.
  6. The pain proves to be a major problem that intervenes with sleep.
  7. The knee motion significantly decreases once a person tries to bend the knee.
  8. Climbing stairs turns out to be a major hurdle.
  9. Getting out of bathtubs becomes a major challenge.
  10. The knee becomes and stays stiff or at least half an hour after getting up from bed in the morning. If the stiffness lasts for more than 60 minutes, it is a sign of inflammatory disease.


How is a knee replacement surgery performed?

  1. Knee replacement surgery requires overnight stay in the hospital.
  2. It involves a general or spinal anesthesia.
  3. Once the skin over the surgical site is cleansed with an antiseptic, the doctor makes an incision and takes out the damaged surface of the knee joint.
  4. The knee joint is then resurfaced with a prosthesis made up of plastic and metal.

A cemented prosthesis is most commonly used during these days. The prosthesis contains 3 components

  1. Tibial component 
  2. Femoral component
  3. Patellar component

What are the advantages of knee replacement surgery?

  1. The biggest advantage of this surgery is the freedom from constant and throbbing pain.
  2. The fact that surgery can increase the mobility also proves to be a blessing for the general condition of the patient.
  3. Knee replacement also helps a patient to get rid of supporting device such as a cane, wheelchair, pain medications etc.
  4. The feeling of stiffness also goes away after the surgery.

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. Swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. In case it continues consult a acupuncture/acupressure dr. In your place. Also take calcium tablets for a limited period 2 months.
