Get treated with Ultrasonic therapy which would directly heal the calcaneal spur (inflammation of the calcaneum bone) which causes the heel pain in majority of the cases. Along with ultrasonic therapy, shortwave diathermy also can be given. Simultaneously it is better to wear MCR chappals (micro cellular rubber) which will help to transfer the weight evenly in the feet so that the weight will be completely felt in the heel area.

Hello with the present complaints you have surgery is the best option for you, there are no medications that can cure the condition, medicine and physiotherapy can stop the progression of the disease they cannot cure the condition, and the damage increases with time which is irreversible so my advice is to get operated as soon as possible. Just leave a positive comment if useful.

There are many conditions that can cause knee pain. - Ice is useful for the control of pain and swelling. It can be applied to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. The swollen knee should be elevated above the level of the heart while icing. -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -If the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: Squatting Kneeling Twisting and pivoting Jogging Aerobics, dancing Playing sport You need detail assessment with a Physiotherapist to find out what causing you this pain.

Try this for joint pains try this. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

Injuries of Knee & Shoulder

Knee is a complex structure of your body made up of bones, ligaments, tendons, articular cartilage, muscles and meniscus. Knee is a very important joint as it plays a crucial role in human movement and is also very much prone to injuries. Your shoulder like your knee is also composed of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles. It is the most flexible joint of your body and because of its frequent movement is also vulnerable to injuries. Knee and shoulder injuries can happen due to various reasons such as while playing sports, carelessly falling down or accidents. Your knee is made up of many important structures, any of which can be injured.

Pain and swelling are the most common signs of knee injury. In addition, your knee may catch or lock up. Many knee injuries cause instability, the feeling that your knee is giving way.

The most common knee injuries are as follows-

  1. Fracture- In case of a fracture usually the patella gets affected. But sometimes the ends of femur or tibia can also get fractured.
  2. Sprains and StrainsThis is the most common injury that can happen while playing sports. Sprains and strains refer to the injury of the ACL or MCL.
  3. Dislocation- Sometimes bones like femur or tibia gets displaced from their usual alignment.
  4. Ligament Injuries- Your ligaments may get injured if the position of your knee is in a bent condition during the injury. Ligament injuries are common to sportspersons and can also happen if you encounter an accident.
  5. Meniscal Tear and Tendon Tear- These are very common knee injuries which can happen while playing sports or falling down carelessly.

Treatment of Knee Injuries-

When you are first injured, the RICE method — rest, ice, gentle compression and elevation – can help speed your recovery. The type of treatment your doctor recommends will depend on several factors, such as the severity of your injury, your age, general health, and activity level.

Nonsurgical Treatment-

Many knee injuries can be treated with simple measures, such as:

  1. Immobilization: Your doctor may recommend a brace to prevent your knee from moving.
  2. Physical Therapy: Specific exercises will restore function to your knee and strengthen the leg muscles that support it.
  3. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines: Drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen reduce pain and swelling.

Surgical Treatment-

Many fractures and injuries around the knee require surgery to fully restore function to your leg. In some cases – such as ACL, PCL, Meniscal tears, surgery can be done arthroscopically using small incisions and minimally Invasive techniques.

The most common shoulder injuries are stated below-

  • Dislocation- Sometimes joints may get dislocated from their usual alignment
  • Fractures- Fractures of the collar bone, humerus and scapular fracture
  • Frozen ShoulderIt occurs due to the stiffness of the shoulder joint
  • AC Joint Injury- The ligaments may get injured in this type of an injury. It is common in sportsperson or may also happen due to falling down
  • Shoulder ImpingementIn this case the muscles gets injured
  • Rotator Cuff Disease (Tendinitis and Bursitis)- In tendinitis of the shoulder, tendons become inflamed (red, sore, and swollen) from being pinched by parts around the shoulder. However, Bursitis occurs when the bursa, a small fluid-filled sac that helps protect the shoulder joint is inflamed.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear- Rotator cuff tendons can become inflamed from frequent use or aging. Sometimes they are injured from a fall on an outstretched hand.

Treatment of Shoulder Injuries-

  1. Early detection is the key to preventing serious shoulder injuries.
  2. Shoulder Exercises
  3. Anti-inflammatory medication also may be prescribed to reduce pain and swelling.
  4. Shoulder injuries can be treated by exercises and physiotherapy
  5. Shoulder arthroscopy surgery is a small key hole, Day care surgery done for various problems like Periarthritis, Recurrent Shoulder Dislocation, Rotator Cuff Tear 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an orthopedist.
