Hello lybrate user knee pain due to obesity is a common major problem. Because hip, knee &ankle joints are weight bearing joints and knee is most movable joint during household works or other physical activities. Mostly due to adapted sedentary life style physical workout like cycling, walking &running are not part of our daily routine. She must try to reduce weight by some sitting position exercise, take high fiber diet, add salad or juicy fruits in diet, plenty of water intake, etc. Don't afraid from surgery" surgery" means patient become independent and pain-free joints, easy to perform her/his daily living activities. Before surgery ankle&hip joints exercises to improve strength of joints, knee joints too, especially flexor and extensor muscle exercises to increase muscle power regular for two months. Then surgery will be successful. After surgery regular one month exercises of knee joint will help to relax the muscle and increase efficiency.

Frozen Shoulder Tips
FROZEN SHOULDER

Also known as Adhesive causalities and Periarthritis.
A stiff, painful shoulder with progressive limitation of movement. Sign and symptoms begin gradually, worsen over time.
Usually occurs on one side. Sometimes it can spread to the other shoulder. Some idiopathic facts for frozen shoulder-It happens mostly to people aged in 40’s,50’s and 60’s.
Women get their frozen shoulder much more commonly than men.
Causes-We can classify in two groups
1) Primary-No significant reason for pain and stiffness.
2) Secondary- may be due to synovitis, rupture of the capsule, subacromial bursitis or a lesion in the muscle complex round the joint particularly in the supraspinatus. There may be history of trauma, your arm in a sling for long time immobilized in a specific position for a prolonged period.
Other ailments are-Heart or lung problems can be linked to cause shoulder pain. Cardiac surgery has sometimes lead to
frozen shoulder. Lung problems like tuberculosis or tumor. Diabetes is a common associated condition with frozen shoulder
Symptoms-Symptoms are variable depending on the cause. Pain is the usual presenting feature and may be accompanied by muscle spasm and limitation of movement. The onset can be acute. When the condition is sub acute or chronic, pain and stiffness are most marked after a period of inactivity and may be eased by moderate exercise. Tender areas may be present. Pain often worst at night and when lying on the affected side. Patient has difficulty with normal daily tasks such as dressing, preparing food, carrying bags and working. Muscle wastage may be evident due to lack of use. According to ayuveda- frozen shoulder is known as Ababahuka. Ayurvedda described-80 Types of Vata nanatamaja roja (caused by vitiation of vata dosha). Ababahuka is also a vata nanatmaja roga. Vitiated vata dosha absorbs the fluid (kapha) of the joint cause to Ababahuka.
Treatment-It is essential to carry out a careful clinical examination as many diseases of diverse origin frequently present with musculoskeletal symptoms.

Anti-inflammatory drugs.
Injection of steroid into the joint to reduce inflammation
Nerve block a short term pain relief option
Surgery if the above fails

Ayurveda treatment- If frozen shoulder caused by secondary group than the other ailments- the Panchkarma and Kerala therapy is very effective. The aim of the Ayurveda treatment is to bring vitiated vata in equilibrium.
Most popular kerala therapy is pizhichil means squeezing of medicated oil with the help of cotton cloth all over the body with full concentration on shoulder along with different stroke of massage. It is a process of fomentation, highly effective for treating diseases caused by vitiation of vata dosha. Duration of treatment varies according to the severity of symptoms of the patient.
Elakizhi- Special herbal pack massage withPizhichil gives strength to the muscle and improves the mobility of shoulder joint.
Nasyam –popular panch karma therapy for all urdhvajatrugata roga, It is a powerful rejuvenating therapy.

Requirement of Therapy -7,14,21 days therapy course depending on the severity of symptoms along with oral medicines for 3-4months.

Hi Pain in ribs and numbness below chest and above abdomen during 5 months of pregnancy. Stabbing pain like pricking and burning sensation just below the breast. How to cure it?

CCEBDM, PG Diploma In Clinical cardiology, MBBS

1.Eat small, frequent meals and snacks throughout the day so your stomach is never empty. High-protein foods and complex carbohydrates might be especially helpful. Whatever you eat, eat it slowly. 2; Avoid lying down after eating (especially on your left side) because this can slow digestion. 3. Get up slowly – sitting on bed for few mts and then standing up 5. Food should not be very hot eat at room temperature. 6. No fried/ spicy/ junk food 7. Brush after eating’ 8 keep sipping fluids through out day 9 room should be well ventilated. 10 relax and have adequate sleep for medicine contact on private chat.

Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do stretching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you don't get relief consult physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

Advice. 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).

If you have pain around the soft tissue areas but not over the bone, you probably have a sprain, not a break. If you have pain over the knee bone, you most likely have a break. If you’re not able to walk on it, there’s a good chance you have a break. Thanku
