My father has a problem with knee and leg pain for a 2 month and he is a diabetic patient. Please help me to resolve ...
Hi, your father is a diabetic so there will be slight circulatory disterbences to all parts of the body. Which can lead to reduced blood supply to the joint (in your father's case) in ayurveda there are many medicines for such cases. Before that he needs to have a good control of blood sugar and have little exercise so that circulation to words the joint increases. You can start with basic treatment like 1. Mahayograj guggul 2. Chandraprabhavati 3. Ksheerbala capsule, all the three medicine 1 tab each before food three times a day. And apply sahacharadi tailam to the effected joint. This treatment continue for 1 month. Thank you.

Here are some tips that will help you to manage joint injuries and disabilities

Joint Injuries and Disabilities
Hello friends! I’m Dr. Kamal Bachani. I’m practising Orthopedic Surgeon in Delhi for the last twenty years and plus.
Joint related injuries and disabilities. In India, alone involve every one in five patients.
Now, need being the common joint involved in these joint disabilities, being the highly mobile and joint which involves in regular locomotion.

So let’s talk about the knee joint, focus on the knee joint today. Knee joint problems can be involved in any age group right from the childhood to young adult, to an elderly age group and to very elderly age group.
We get the knee disorder problems in the form of pain, there can be stiffness, there can be arthritis of the knee joint, and there can be instability of the knee joint. Pain is one of the commonest features followed by stiffness in the knee in any form of the disease, in or around the knee.

Recent advancements have mainly focused on relieving of the pain because pain is one of the most disabling symptoms which can make patient feel incapacitated, make the patient feel depressed and dependent on others and this is the purpose of our treatment to remove pain and stiffness and make the patient mobile, active and create value in his or her own life.
We are able to treat pain by the use of modern science in the form of pharmacological therapy. We use visco supplementation. We use advanced rehabilitation techniques and wherever the anatomical factors are involved, we try to correct these anatomical factors in the form of cartilage regeneration in the form of correcting ligaments, imbalance, by reconstructing the ligament, repairing the ligament, or menisci repair, so and so on.

Now, talking about the structures, there can be involvement in front of the knee, there can be structures which can be damaged at the back of the knee, there can be structures which can be damaged inside the knee, like the ACL, the PCL, the menisci all these things can be managed now by very high precision arthroscopic surgery .
But majority, most important in knee disorder management, first point is, correct history and correct diagnosis.
Once we are able to correctly diagnosis, half the battle is already won.

After diagnosing the knee disorder problems correctly, we can plan so that the patient can be relieved of his or her symptoms.
As we have mentioned already, pain mortality is to relieve pain followed by arthroscopic surgery which may help in correcting the knee imbalances to its normal and we use techniques which avoid the knee replacement surgeries like cartilage preservation, or cartilage regeneration surgery and wherever it is imperative to do knee joint replacement surgery, there are modern techniques of optimizing the results in the form of minimally invasive surgical techniques in knee replacement which we have been using regularly.
There are techniques like computer navigation surgery to achieve more precision, there are patient specific implants, there is patient’s specific equipment which also increase the precision and accuracy in order to optimize the result.

These are the techniques which we have been using.

I get a lot of online queries, regarding these techniques. My appointments can be booked online through librate.com and I’m practicing at Fortis Hospital, Vasant Kunj, practicing in Max Smart Hospital in Saket, New Delhi and in my clinic in Malviya Nagar.
My clinic timing appointments can be booked online through Lybrate.com.
Thank you very much!

I am a 22 year old female. I have severe backache in my lower back from the past three months. The doctor said it is because of my sitting posture which I have corrected and used various pain relief sprays. But the problem still persists. The pain is moving down my right leg. Is this bad? What should I do?

This is bad. This is due to compression of sciatic nerve and you are developing sciatica. It is due to sitting for longer time or sometimes sitting while bending forward. If the pain is severe you need to take painkillers. But I will suggest you some exercises which releaves the pressure on compressed nerve. As regular intake of painkiller is harmful. Lie down on your back with arms and legs straight (parallel) to the ground/bed. Then slowly raise one leg without folding at knee, other leg will be flat on ground. Hold for 8 to 10 sec, then slowly bring down. Repeat with opposite leg, then with both legs. Each leg 10 times. You will find result in one week.

I have been suffering from one sde leg pain sir for last months. Please tell me solution in house made medicine only.
Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation. To relieve mild pain: stay off your leg as much as possible apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down please go to a physiotherapist if: you have pain during or after walking you have swelling in both legs your pain gets worse your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment you have painful varicose veins if you feel the pain is from muscle cramp then you need to drink a lot of water because poor fluid intake (dehydration) may predispose to cramps also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps. Best wishes.

Hello lybrate user back pain due to improper posture and muscle weakness leads pain and stiffness. X-ray findings or view are beneficial for purpose of proper diagnosis by doctor only, there is no use for patient, so dnt worry about your tests or x-ray report. I would like to suggest you only to do regular back exercises for three months in supervision of physio. For more you can take thermotherapy treatment on regular basis.

If you have leg pain pls check your body weight and your haemoglobin levels, as Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. My suggestion would be to wear MCR Chappals which will help you to prevent the weight falling on the If you have back pain while walking and standing first of all check your weight and your haemoglobin levels, as Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. My suggestion would be to wear MCR Chappals which will help you to prevent the weight falling on the back. Neck pain is due to the improper posture as while sitting in front of the computer and it leads to neck pain and thereby it leads to shoulder pain. We suggest neck mobilization exercises that would reduce the stress falling on the shoulder. We also suggest patients to do shoulder mobilization exercises ie. general shoulder movements/neck movements which will help you to improve the blood circulation. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired that can also be reason to have frequent pain in the leg once the oxygen levels in the blood comes down it automatically leads to improper functioning of the joints and muscles and that also might make the hip muscles to become tired thereby straining mildly might lead to waist / hip pain
