Hi lybrate-user this is crepitus sound of joint due to air bubble filled between subcutaneous tissues of the body. Don't worry if it is painless or swelling less.

Proper diagnosis is essential. Most probably she has osteoarthritis. Get X rays of knees AP view while Standing on single leg ie Right leg, lateral view of knee and skyline view of patella. Same x rays for opposite side are helpful for Diagnosis. Review after X rays. Or visit some knee specialist. Dr Prashant Parate. Shoulder and Knee specialist.

Osteoarthritis is a joint inflammation that results from cartilage degeneration. It commonly affects the hands, feet, spine, and large weight-bearing joints, such as the hips and knees. It is partly a result of natural aging of the joint.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I understand that injury to the tail bone region can be very painful, but actually if you have got an x ray done, then kindly send it across to me. As of now: - try to avoid sitting on hard surfaces and only sit on well cushioned surfaces - you can also apply analgesic spray - take an anti-inflammatory medication for 3-5 days please let me know if your pain persists. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Knee Replacement

Fellowship in Knee Replacement, D.N.B. (Orthopaedics) , MBBS
Orthopedist, Mumbai
Knee Replacement

Knee is a hinge joint where the lower leg bone tibia meets the thigh bone femur. During osteoarthritis, cartilage or ligament defects and degenerative arthritis, knee replacement surgery is recommended world-wide to get relief from extreme pain. Knee replacement surgery, also known as knee arthroscopy, is a surgical procedure, in which the affected knee joint is replaced with synthetic material. The most likely candidates for total knee replacement are the patients with severe destruction of the knee joint coupled with progressive pain and impaired function.

Modern technological advances have made computer assisted knee replacement surgery extremely popular around the globe. In this surgery, the surgeon is assisted by a computer to remove the optimum amount and angle of the bone, which otherwise is done by inspecting manually. This is an excellent example of surgery through small incision and it eliminates the chances of human error. A perfect alignment and balance is achieved and hence longevity is also increased to 20 - 30 years. Knee replacement surgery is also specific to gender as the anatomy of male and female patients is different.

There are many types of knee replacements, most common being the total knee replacement or Total Knee Arthroplasty. In addition, there is partial knee replacement, bilateral knee replacement, revision knee replacement and knee arthroscopy.

In knee replacement surgery, the worn out surfaces of joints of knee are replaced with artificial implant of plastic and metal. The lower end of the femur bone is removed and replaced with a metal shell. The upper end of the lower leg bone (tibia) is also removed and replaced with a channelled plastic implant with a metal stem. A plastic ball is also added under the kneecap depending on its condition. These artificial components are commonly referred as prosthesis. The design of these highly flexible implants replicate knee, with the rotating knee replacement implants assist in backward and forward swing of the legs.

Patients whose knee joints have been damaged by either trauma or progressive arthritis should consider total knee replacement surgery. Post-surgical hospital stay after knee joint replacement is usually three to five days. The surgery has a very high success rate and shows dramatic improvement after a month. This improvement is most notable one month or more after surgery. The pain caused by the damaged joint is reduced significantly when the new gliding surface is constructed during surgery. Initially, patient will walk with the help of a walking aid until the knee is able to support full body weight. After six weeks, patient can walk comfortably with minimal assistance. Patients with artificial joints are prescribed to take antibiotics during the course of any elective invasive procedures including dental work. Physiotherapy is an essential part of rehabilitation and it will increase the muscle strength and patient can enjoy most activities, except running and jumping.

I'm 18 years old. I got my ankle break while I'm playing kabaddi. Suddenly I'm hitten by my friend. I used so many medicines, but I'm not satisfied with it. And I'm still suffering from it.

Dear lybrate-user, if you had a fracture of the ankle then it needs to be immobilised. Plaster cast if its undisplaced or surgery if its displaced. Medicines won't solve the problem.

Dear lybrate-user. Thanks for the question. You are just 24. Your backpain has to be due to over exertion and that lower back pain should ease off its own after some time. Therefore I suggest you not to worry too much. Make sure you do mild lower back exercises for strengthening back muscles surrounding the back bone. You might want to consult a bone specialist to get his opinion on this matter. Take care.

If you use modern medicine painkillers, will spoil your kidney. So always prefer only ayurved medicine. At first for your backache apply the rhumayog oil.

Hello,lybrate user , You are obessed and overweight can cause decreased blood circulation to cause retention of fluid in ankle,feet& legs resulting oedema. You should go for reducing your weight, first. You should keep your feet on 180°instead of hanging them down on 90°. Avoid, junk food, cold intake, alcohol, nicotine . Go for meditation to charge your body with plenty of Oxygen. Homoeopathy can assist you to combat your problem successfully. Tk, care.
