I am 45 years old suffering from knee pain for the last 3 months. Very recently I consulted a doctor to diagnosed with osteoporosis. I am using medicines but I have stopped jogging in the morning which I have been doing for many years. Can I lead a healthy life òr what precaution should be adopted I am a teacher by profession and I am a male.
I got lateral minucus tear in july 2011 while playing football. I underwent arthroscopic surgery in my left knee in September 2013. Before surgery, mri report said lateral miniscus tear with cyst in my left knee. After surgery in manipal hospital Bangalore, my life became hell and I faced knee pain, stiffness, bike riding knee pain, could not stand for 30 min continously, could not use indian toilet, prolong sitting impossible on chair etc etc. None of these problems I had before surgery. Before surgery Dr. Claimed that I can play football within 6 months. After 6 months of surgery that is on apr 2014 I did mri which said no fresh tear with cmp condromalecia patella level 1 and ra blood test negative with vitamin d correction needed. I lost all hope with my surgeon and believed that only for money he did surgery to me and ruined my life. I had tendocare medicine from september 14 till apr 15 and simultaneously homeopathy. Now my condition is better as compared to aug 14 case. I believe it's cos of homeopathy medicine. Past one month I m doing isometric knee strengthen exercise including vmo at home. These physiotherapy I did post surgery for 3_4 months but as pain was still there so I stopped these strengthen exercise but I re started them last month as my injured knee thickness is half of my correct right leg. My condition is better now say 5/10 but prolong sitting in office or rainy season cold increases pain n stiffness. I feel burning sensation, stiffness, not able to bend knee fully, pain around knee cap, can't walk for say 30 mins without pain, uneasiness and pain at the bottom of knee cap. Now my only remedy is to apply knee pain killer oil and exercise and take homeopathy medicine. I wonder if I can be equally fit as I was before surgery. I doubt if surgery was needed for me at first place but that was already done 1 yr 8 months back. I request a orthopaedic doctor to advise me as in what is my knee problem and how I can get rid of it Thank you.
While it may be obvious that no form of pain is welcome, it can be said that pain which is felt on account of being affected by sciatica is especially unwelcome. Taking that into due account, the good news is that physiotherapy can go a long way in helping by improving this sort of pain.
The longest nerve in the whole human body is the sciatic nerve, so it can be expected that when there is trouble with this nerve, the pain would be pretty significant. The leg pain which is caused to a person when this nerve happens to be getting pinched is known as sciatica.
There is a range of treatments when it comes to how something as painful as sciatica is to be solved. Now, while it is true that a solution such as making sure there is an amount of bed rest which is sufficient is very important, to say the very least, it is often the case that the person with sciatica would like his or her recovery to be hastened.
In order to make sure that this is the case, physiotherapy is quite useful. There are various forms of physiotherapy which can be made use of, and the decision as to which sort of physiotherapy a person would be best suited to would obviously be part of the subjective assessment of the person by a practitioner who is well qualified and experienced.
Some of the solutions when it comes to physiotherapy being used in order to treat sciatica are quite innovative, to say the very least. For example, there is physiotherapy instrument mobilisation, which is also known as PIM. What this entails is that a mechanical spring-loaded instrument is used in the process which serves the purpose of mobilising the spinal cord of a person along with his or her peripheral joints.
One form of physiotherapy oriented treatment which is used to address the issue of sciatica is real-time ultrasound physiotherapy. It can be said that this is not close to as cutting edge as physiotherapy instrument mobilisation is but it does serve as a rather dependable and useful way to battle sciatic pain. This form of physiotherapy makes use of ultrasound technology to analyse how the muscles function and then using that as a basis to create a list of physiotherapy exercises to be done by the person who is having sciatica. Rather than medicines, physiotherapy improves sciatica by getting a person to use oneself! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

I am 23 year old female no matter how hard I try my parents is always treating me as a servant and not caring for my physical and emotional pain. I ave been suffering from leg pain for 8 years which usually occurs when i'm week and the pain is intense but haven't taken me to consult a doctor. I also suffer from headache if got stressed, laugh a lot, loud noises, argument etc. But my parents have never given me attention while i'm suffering.
In the recent years, with the building work pressure and the increasing stress in our everyday activities, our regular lives have become choc-a-bloc with all sorts of engagements. This often renders our bodies prone to fatigue and listlessness. This phenomenon can often be observed in an intensified form by way of a disorder called Fibromyalgia or as it is deemed in common parlance, "rheumatism".
Fibromyalgia is an ailment, which causes pain in the body tissues. The tender and fibrous tissues like muscles, ligaments and tendons are often affected by this disease. As a consequence of Fibromyalgia, one feels incapacitated to work or perform any physical activity. Sometimes Fibromyalgia is accompanied by extreme headaches, sleep disturbances, muscle pain and consistent dizziness.
The degree of chronicity of the disease may vary but the underlying cause remains the same. Given the high incidence of the disease, the treatment for the same is also widely available. However, for a more effective and lasting cure, many resort to homeopathy.
Homeopathy offers several remedies to Fibromyalgia, classified on the basis of the discrete symptoms of the disease:
- Rhus Tox: Rhus Tox is an excellent antidote for rheumatism induced stillness and muscle pain. When paired with suitable exercises, it can afford a lot of relief.
- Ruta Grav: Ruta Grav aids in relieving tendon pains and sustained usage helps in restoring muscle strength in case of Fibromyalgia.
- Rhododendron: Often the Fibromyalgia pain gets aggravated with a marked change in the season. Rhododendron mitigates the intensity of the pain.
- Arnica: For any injury induced body ache, Arnica is an extremely effective cure. It also functions as the foremost option, when the precise causes or the symptoms are unknown.
- Causticum: Certain forms of Fibromyalgia are accompanied with soreness, weakness and a feeling of stillness. Causticum soothes such ailments.
- Bryonia: Bryonia alleviates chronic pain in the soft tissues of the body. Exposure to heat needs to be avoided mandatorily in order to optimize the effect of Bryonia.
- Kalmia Latifolia: When besides the obverse symptoms of Fibromyalgia, the pain in the muscle is accompanied with a feeling of cold and numbness, one of the best homeopathic cures is Kalmia Latifolia.
Fibryomalgia is an ailment, which not only manifests physical troubles but also affects one's emotional status adversely. Therefore, to mete out the best remedy, homeopathy carefully assess both the physical and the psychosocial bearing of the patient before recommending a particular cure.
