I got a injury in tail bone falling from a height. I consult with a doctor and he suggest me for xray. After that I saw there is a minor crack on tail bone. please tell me some recover option from tail bone pain or remedy.
Patella of right knee has got an outgrowth of bone. It started growing one year before. I took Homeopathy medicine but no relief is there. Pl advise for further remedy.
I hv a problem in my back side of knee for more than one year. Early morning I can not sit properly. I hv this problem n my left leg only.
Me and my boyfriend met few days back, and we do had close relationship like touching and Kissing and all other types on non penetrative sexual interactions. Precum and some Sperms do evolved around near Vagina but no Sexual intercourse happened between us. But we fear that it could lead to Pregnancy after reading certain articles in internet. How could it happen without penetration? If So, is it legal in India to abort for a 19 years unmarried Female in Multi- Speciality hospitals with her own consent?
I have back pain .I tested MRI the doctor said no serious problem take medicine and take rest but I have not felt any relation .please tell me treatment or exercise it. I have nurse disorder in my back.
Am 62, Female. Besides ankles swelling since last 2-3 years, now from last 1 year am suffering with severe lower backache, more right side. Also right (front) thigh feels less sensitive to touch, like numb sensation. And when I get Backache aggravated simultaneously my right (front) thigh starts feeling very burning hot and painful. Am getting progressively obese even when eating very sensibly in portion, on regular times and all organic home cooked food, organic fruits and vegetables, organic grains, organic ghee and mustard oil used. What is ailing me?
What is arthritis of the knee?
The knee acts as hinge joint and allows flexion (bending) and extension (straightening). The knee is formed by the tibiofemoral joints, where end of the femur (thigh bone) glides over the top of the tibia (shin bone) and the patellofemoral joint where the kneecap glides over the end part of the femur. The gliding surfaces of the knee are covered with articular cartilage which helps the joint to glide smoothly. Over time the articular cartilage can become damaged or 'worn away' and this is known as osteoarthritis.
What is medial compartment arthritis?
Most people with knee arthritis have predominantly pain in the inner aspect of the knee, which is due to medial compartment arthritis. Patients who are born with varus knees (bow legs) are more likely to get medial compartment osteoarthritis. This is because the weight of their body mainly passes through the medial compartment of the knee rather than spreading the load evenly between the whole gliding surface of the knee.
How do you diagnose medial compartment arthritis?
ClinicaFeatures, examination findings and standing X-rays of the knee joint and the patello-femoral joint are needed to diagnose medial compartment arthritis. The X-ray will often show narrowing of the joint space in the medial compartment of the knee which suggest that a patient has medial compartment osteoarthritis. Long Leg standing X-ray of the whole of both of both legs from the hip joints to the ankle joints ( Fig 2), allows us to carefully examine the overall alignment of your legs. They help to calculate the weight bearing axis of your leg and find out where most of the force is passing through your knee joint. MRI would be done too, to assess degree of cartilage damage. It is imperative to know status of other structures in the knee like meniscus and ligaments.
Some patients are advised for a type of knee brace known as a medial offloading brace to trial. To a certain extent this mimics the result of osteotomy surgery by pushing the leg into a more normal alignment and taking the pressure of the damaged medial compartment. This is usually only a temporary solution whilst waiting for surgery. Patients who are overweight often find their knee pain is significantly improved when they lose weight. Simple analgesia such as paracetamol together with etodolac can help with pain and sleep disturbance form the pain.
Who requires surgery?
People suffering from growing cartilage lesions resulting in pain and activity restriction with proved mechanical axis deviation as the cause, would benefit from surgery. Age and extent of cartilage wear determine the nature of surgery. Younger individuals with smaller lesions are good candidates for a joint preservation surgery in the form of a High Tibial Osteotomy. With advancing age and extent of disease, Arthroplasty would be a
more beneficial option.
