Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Please tell me what was the initiating factor for your pain? there are many causes of knee pain in young people, if there is no associated swelling, skin redness or any other s/s of inflammation or infection, then - start with intensive physical therapy focussing on strengthening of your quadriceps muscle and stretching of other muscle groups - hot water fomentation 3-4 times at home - local analgesic spray like dynapar qps for local application after fomentation - take adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation as per requirement - you can take short course of anti inflammatory medication like tab etoshine, tab paracetamol or any medicine which suits you for 5-7 days what medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. I would like to know whether you have got your inflammatory profile done till now. Also please let me know what all exercises you are doing on a daily basis. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I am 30 year old man. I have pain in my knee for last two years. So what should I do?
There are many conditions that can cause knee pain. - ice is useful for the control of pain and swelling. It can be applied to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. The swollen knee should be elevated above the level of the heart while icing. -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting jogging aerobics, dancing playing sport you need detail assessment with a physiotherapist to find out what causing you this pain. Best wishes.

For swelling ice pack is the treatment option but according to environmental it may not suit. So go for active joint movement and elevation. Put 2 pillows at leg to elevate. For pain analgesic and warm foamentation are the treatment option but warm foamentation should be administered to the joint which does not have swelling.

I am 25 yr male. I have sitting job as profession. Sometimes I suffer from back pain. It mostly happens when I do any physical activity. I consulted with physiotherapist. She improved my sitting position and suggested some regular exercise. My sitting posture improved. But original problem remained same. I also gone through blood test for Vit B12 and Vit D. Both were less then required. So gaining required level of VitB12 and Vit. D will help or not?

Vit. B12 and vit. D3 will definitely help in your back pain. If the pain still persists or comes back please consult an orthopedic and get all investigation like x-rays and mri of the spine. Back pain at your age is not good and should be properly investigated.
