How to reduce joint pain in knee. Wat type of food is helpful in reducing the joint pain.

How to reduce joint pain in knee. Wat type of food is helpful in reducing the joint pain.
Hello lybrate-user, knee pain occur after 30-35 are due to degenerative changes in bone. It may be due to osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. So consult a physio and learn some strengthening exercise and start doing it guided by them. From xray images and symptoms of patient we can come into conclusion either it is due to osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. So in both the condition knee strengthening exercise plays important role. There are also ultrasound, ift, swd modality available in physio setup to get you releive from pain. So it would be better if you visit a nearby physio and start doing exercise guided by them. There isn't particular food to avoid for knee pain, but if you are overweight then you have to take care of your diet. Because as much your weight increases all weight will transfer to knee so it is better to keep maintain your weight. It is better to take calcium rich food such as milk, paneer, curd etc.

Osteoarthritis - Causes, Symptoms And Treatment!

Internal Medicine Specialist, Ghaziabad
Osteoarthritis - Causes, Symptoms And Treatment!

The human body is able to move fluidly because there are various joints, muscles, tendons and cartilages that work together to make this happen. Movements of the hands, legs, back, hips, knees and wrists are controlled this way. For various reasons, however, these tissues grow stiff, thereby, reducing free movement. Any movement causes pain and stiffness and swelling of the joints, which forces the patient to reduce physical activity. This reduced activity further leads to the joints becoming stiff, thus putting the patient in a difficult position.

What causes it?

The ends of the bone are covered by softer tissue called cartilage, which is responsible for allowing the free movement. In patients with osteoarthritis, this cartilage is lost and the bones rub against each other, producing pain and a crackling sound with the movement. Some of the most common causes include the following:

  1. Age is the most common cause for osteoarthritis, with lifestyle habits playing a major role in this condition. Most joints would be affected here.
  2. Obesity is another major cause for osteoarthritis, as the additional weight of the person puts extra pressure on the knees and the legs, leading to the wearing of the joints. The back and lower extremities are more affected than the hands in this case.
  3. Joint injuries are another common cause for osteoarthritis, which is more localised to the area of injury.

What are the signs and symptoms?

As noted already, painful movement is the most common symptom of osteoarthritis. There could also be swelling and redness around the affected joint(s).
Diagnosis: The doctor will usually be able to identify osteoarthritis after an examination, but in some cases, an X-ray or MRI may be required to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatments available-

The treatment for osteoarthritis is multipronged.

  1. For immediate relief of the pain, non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory drugs are used. In cases of localised symptoms, even topical creams or gels may be used.
  2. Weight loss is extremely essential, if there is obesity that is causing the osteoarthritis.
  3. Vitamins and supplements in good amounts can improve bone health and help in preventing and reversing the damage in some patients.
  4. Heat therapy has proven to be quite useful in many cases to provide temporary relief
  5. As much as the movement of the joints is painful for the patient, it is only with regular exercise that the joints can be made more flexible and mobile.
  6. The affected joints need to be specially cared for by avoiding injury and reducing unnecessary movements.
  7. Role of physiotherapy in the management of OA - Strengthening exercises, Taping, Manual therapy, Education/lifestyle changes,  Modalities, Agility and perturbation training.
  8. The definitive therapy of OA is joint replacement (total/partial knee/hip joint replacement).

In addition, support groups and counselling may also help significantly in patients who find their quality of life being reduced due to this condition. Remember, not all is lost with osteoarthritis. It is definitely possible to get your life back to its earlier days when you were able to move about freely.

My mom has cervical spondylitis. Since 5 years. She is under treatment. But still no changes. Recently I read a post here. It was about cervical and it was related with jasmine. Can I know what can be done?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Zirakpur
Yes please get to know where you can find night flowering jasmine tree (harsingar). Or contact some mali. Get 10-20 leaves everyday. Try to get extract (juice) of half of these and your mother should sip it. Rest may be boiled in about a litre of water. When 1/4 remains, let your mother drink warm. Better if you do twice a day. Contact after about a week or ten days to intimate progress. For other supporting medicines in ayurveda, please consult privately.

Please do a cold fermentation water treatment immediately after you have run. You could slow down on your km for a week and then observe whether the pain is there or not. Next start on a few resisted exercises after a weeks time. Then you could build up your strength by taking good protein rich diet for 1 month. Most importantly taking good rest is also important in runners.

Climbing up and down stairs requires enormous efforts by the body and the heart needs to pump more blood to your limbs to make them work. It is a normal phenomenon and is exaggerated in old age. I would advise you not to use stairs too much. Drunk lot of fluids and keep yourself hydrated. Move your ankles and feet before you get up from during our lying position, in order to pull back blood from your lower limbs to your heart. Regards.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

DNB GENERAL SURGERY, MBBS
General Surgeon, Mumbai
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The median nerve goes through a tunnel in the wrist that is formed by the bones of the wrist and a tough band of tissue called a" ligament. Experts do not know exactly how the nerve can get pinched, but they think it might happen when:

●tendons that go through the same tunnel get swollen (tendons are bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones)

●tissues surrounding the tendons harden

●people hold their hands in a position that makes the tunnel smaller

●people use their hands for work that involves repetitive or forceful movements

The median nerve carries signals about sensation – it tells the brain what the hand is" feeling" it gets input from these parts of the hand:

●thumb

●index finger

●middle finger

●parts of the ring finger

●parts of the palm closest to the thumb

Women are more likely than men to get carpal tunnel syndrome. Being overweight probably increases the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome. Examples of other conditions that might increase the risk include pregnancy, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis.

What are the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome? — the symptoms include pain and tingling in the thumb and the index, middle, and ring fingers. Symptoms are typically worst at night and can wake you up from sleep. Often the symptoms affect both hands, but one hand might have worse symptoms than the other.

In some cases, pain and tingling can extend to the whole hand or even up to the wrist and forearm. Rarely, pain and tingling extends past the elbow to the shoulder.

The symptoms can also flare up when you do things that involve bending and unbending your wrist or raising your arms. Some activities can trigger symptoms in people with carpal tunnel syndrome. But they do not actually cause the condition. Examples include:

●driving

●reading

●typing

●holding a phone

In many people, the symptoms come and go. But some people eventually have symptoms all the time. They can end up having trouble moving their fingers or controlling their grip.

Is there a test for carpal tunnel syndrome? — yes. Electrical tests of the nerves can show if you have carpal tunnel syndrome, but these tests are not always necessary.

Your doctor will probably be able to tell if you have carpal tunnel syndrome by learning about your symptoms and doing an exam. During the exam, he or she might tap on or press on your wrist, or ask you to hold your hands in ways that are known to make symptoms worse.

Electrical nerve tests can prove if you really have carpal tunnel syndrome. Doctors usually order these tests for people who might need surgery to treat their condition.

●nerve conduction studies – nerve conduction studies can show whether the median nerve is carrying electrical signals the right way. In people with carpal tunnel syndrome, signals can be slow or weak.

●electromyography – electromyography, also called emg, can show whether the muscles in the hand and wrist are responding the right way to electrical signals. This test is most useful in checking whether another condition besides carpal tunnel syndrome might be causing the symptoms.

Should I see a doctor or nurse? — see your doctor or nurse if you develop the symptoms described above, and they bother you.

How is carpal tunnel syndrome treated? — treatments are often combined and can include:

●wrist splints – some people feel better if they wear splints at night that keep their hands in a" neutral position" the neutral position is when the wrist is not bent forward or backward and the fingers are curled naturally toward the palm.

●steroid shots or pills – steroids are a group of medicines that control inflammation and swelling. To treat carpal tunnel syndrome, doctors sometimes inject steroids into the carpal tunnel. People who do not want to get a shot can take steroids in pill form instead. But the pills are less effective than the shot.

●other physical treatments – there is weak evidence that yoga or another treatment called" carpal bone mobilization" might help some people with carpal tunnel syndrome. For carpal bone mobilization, a physical or occupational therapist moves your hand or wrist around in a special way, so that the bones in the wrist move.

●surgery – doctors offer surgery to people who have ongoing or severe nerve damage that is causing the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. Surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome involves cutting the ligament that stretches across the wrist to form the tunnel. However, women who get carpal tunnel syndrome during pregnancy usually don't need surgery. In most cases, the symptoms gradually improve after the baby is born.

Can carpal tunnel syndrome be prevented? — it's unclear whether there is any way to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome. People sometimes think that the condition happens because they use a computer too much. But studies have shown that computer use is probably not related to carpal tunnel syndrome.

What is carpal tunnel syndrome? — carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes pain and numbness in the fingers and hands, and sometimes the arms. It happens when a nerve in the wrist called the" median nerve" gets pinched or squeezed.
