I am 22years old man. Iam experiencing difficulties with my joints. Pain and tick tick sound while rotating shoulders. And also feeling my left knee getting loosed?
The knee is known as the largest and one of the most complex joints in the human body, and also one of the most vulnerable, as it supports the weight of the entire body. The knee joint is made up of several elements including the knee cap, meniscus, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and muscles. Damage to any part of the knee can cause chronic pain. So how can you protect your knee from damage and injury? Take a look at these three points!
- Dealing with Load: Weight is a big one. Carrying around extra pounds and kilograms can be detrimental for your knees in the long run. Your knee is not equipped to handle the excessive weight. It already supports three to five times your weight when you get up and walk around or indulge in some mild jogging. One must be careful of those extra pounds to take the load off the knee and keep it from falling prey to damage.
- Exercise: Moderate to intense exercise is prescribed for one and all. This, of course, depends on one's overall health and age. If you are already suffering from joint pain, then you may want to go easy on the exercise with a focus on building muscle strength and foundation. If you are healthy, then some amount of daily exercise as a routine will keep those knees in prime working condition and well lubricated as well. Inactivity and a sedentary lifestyle can affect the knees very badly.
- Do not Ignore: Warning signals such as chronic or acute knee pain should not be ignored. Remember to see a doctor or an orthopaedic specialist to find out if you have contracted an infection or if you may have suffered a fracture due to an injury. Also, it is important to take a bone density test regularly, especially after the age of 40 or for women going through menopause, as this will point to any deficiencies and even warn you in case there is any trace of osteoporosis.
Rest, exercise, and food should be kept in fine balance for a healthy body. These are a few measures that one can take to keep knee pain at bay. Yet, it is also advisable to speak with a doctor at length regarding measures to protect your knees.
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Arachnoiditis of the spinal cord is a non specific inflammatory disease of the arachonoid membrane which is characterized pathologically by thickening of the arachnoid membrane with adhesion or adherence to the dura matter and manifested clinically through roots or radiclar signs and symptoms.
Arachnoiditis is usually seen in 40 to 60 years of age but rarely below 20years.
Onset: it can be acute or sometimes it may take months.Pain: pain is usually localized type with a burning character. Later the painstarts radiating down the lower limb due to nerve root irritation.
Paresthesia: this also takes place due to irritation of the sensory nerve roots.
Sensory loss: this occurs when the sensory nerve roots get completely blocked.
Muscle weakness with atrophy: although the anatomy of the motor nerve roots make them less prone to get compressed, it can happen in the later stage which will then give rise to weakness and wasting of the corresponding muscles.
The medical management usually consists of corticosteroids in acute stage of inflammation. NSAID for pain relief and inflammation.
Surgical management consists of Rhizotomy in cases of unbearable pain.Surgical decompression for removal of cyst.
PHYSIOTHERAPY MANAGEMENT comprises of
Moist heat mainly for reducing the muscle spasm.
SSF also relieves pain by reducing spasm and by increasing the blood supply to the area. In case of radiating pain due to involvement of nerve roots the patient may be treated with TENS. Even in cases of paresthesia TENS is usually used.
Laser has been found to reduce the inflammation and also break the adhesion in the deep seated structures which helps in setting free the irritation on the nerve roots thereby relieving the discomforts of the patient.
Active exercises like static exercises for the abdominus, back extensor, gluteus and quadriceps helps in reducing pain in the initial stages and also maintains the tone in the muscles.
Dynamic exercises may be started once the pain level comes within the patient’s tolerance level. These exercises may be continued by the patient throughout the life for preventing any chances of recurrence.
SLR: Active and passive SLR is given to lengthen the neural structures and relieve the tension in them. This is a type of neural mobilization that helps in relieving the signs of radiculopathy.
Gait training in cases of muscular weakness.
