Since you have mentioned a very long standing issue, ideally I need to examine you in detail as to what is the probable cause for your pain. We will need mri of the spine region and certain other tests to find out a probable lesion and management can be initiated depending upon the site of lesion. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

This could be due to OA knee &/Or obesity. Physiotherapy along with medicines will help. Do knee exercises. It may have to be further investigated Rule out diabetes & vit.D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with a soft bedding on it. Any way take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. IBUPROFEN 200mg OD & SOS x 5days CALDIKID PLUS (mankind) 1 tab ODx10days You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan.. Don't ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Its been 3 weeks since my Acl reconstructive surgery using 4strand hamstring graft ,and I still find some laxity in my operated knee ,is it normal ?

Dear Rahul, After ACL reconstruction we usually keep patients on physiotherpy for 4-6 weeks, and allow gradual knee bending. So the common complaint is some amount of knee stiffness. You can only assess stability after 6-8 weeks.

Usually a k wires are put around it to hold it. After 2 weeks healing of sutures. After that 4-6 weeks of rest. Then exercise and Physio for another 6 weeks. Then you can continue your normal life. This is taking into account that everything is perfect.

Osteo arthritis of the knee can be managed in the initial stages with physio therapy and medications. Life style modifications such as avoiding standing for a long time, avoiding prolonged walking will be needed.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. 5. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.
