Reduction of your weight will certainly help you in reduction of pain. Avoid junk food, sweets, aerated drinks, maida based dishes. Eat more of fresh salads (munch slowly) fruits and reduce in take of rice. Acupressure and acupuncture are powerful therapies which gives relief from especially joint pains, back pains and lot of other ailments. I am suggesting you a method by which you can get instant relief and continue to do it. However you consult me privately to get permanent solution. 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. Swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Also take calcium tablets shelcal 500 mg for a limited period 2 months consult after 5 days

Role of Exercises on Osteoarthritis Knee

MPTh/MPT, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Guwahati

What is osteoarthritis of knee?

Osteoarthritis of the knee (knee oa) is a progressive disease causing inflammation and degeneration of the knee joint that worsens over time. It affects the entire joint, including bone, cartilage, ligament, and muscle. Its progression is influenced by age, body mass index (bmi), bone structure, genetics, strength, and activity level. Knee oa also may develop as a secondary condition following a traumatic knee injury. Depending on the stage of the disease and whether there are associated injuries or conditions, knee oa can be managed with physical therapy. More severe or advanced cases may require surgery.

Symptoms of knee oa may include:

  • Worsening pain during or following activity, particularly with walking, climbing, or descending stairs, or moving from a sitting to standing position
  • Pain or stiffness after sitting with the knee bent or straight for a prolonged period of time
  • A feeling of popping, cracking, or grinding when moving the knee
  • Swelling following activity
  • Tenderness to touch along the knee joint

Physiotherapy for oa knee:

Here are 5 exercises to help you take control of your knee oa. These exercises are recommendations. Before doing them, get your physio's approval. Never push through pain with these exercises you may be doing your joints more harm than good. Soreness is normal when starting an exercise program, but if it doesn't go away, call your doctor.

1. Knee oa exercise #1: standing quadriceps stretch

  • Stretching your quadriceps can ease tension in the knee joints.
  • Stand with feet hip-distance apart.
  • Bend your right knee and hold the top of your right foot with your right hand.
  • Bring your right heel as close as possible to your glutes. You can use a wall for balance.
  • Hold for 30 seconds, and repeat on the left leg.
  • Do 3 times once a day.

Knee oa exercise #2: standing calf stretch

  • This gentle calf stretch increases flexibility in your leg muscles and knee joints.
  • Bring your right foot a few feet in front of your left foot. Bend your right leg, making sure your knee doesn't go past your toes.
  • Keeping your left leg straight, press your left heel toward the ground to stretch the calf of your back leg.
  • Hold for 30 seconds. Repeat on opposite leg.
  • Do 3 times daily.

Knee oa exercise #3: 

  • Seated leg raise
  • The seated leg raise exercise helps strengthen muscles around your knees.
  • Sit on a chair with both legs bent at 90.
  • Slowly raise your right leg so that it's parallel to the floor, keeping your left foot on the ground.
  • Hold for 30 seconds, then slowly bring the right foot back to the floor, and repeat on left leg.
  • Do 10 times twice a day.

Knee oa exercise #4: 

  • Step-ups strengthen your legs, making it easier for you to do everyday things like climb stairs. You'll need an exercise step, or use a bottom stair in your house.
  • Stand in front of the stair with feet hip-width apart.
  • Step onto the stair with your right foot, then with your left foot.
  • Step down in reverse: your left foot reaches the ground first, then the right foot.
  • Go at your own pace for about 30 seconds at a time. For balance, use a railing.
  • Do 10 times twice a day.

Knee oa exercise #5: 

  • Static quadriceps contraction
  • With your knee relatively straight, slowly tighten the muscle at the front of your thigh (quadriceps) by pushing your knee down into a small rolled up towel. 
  • Put your fingers on your quadriceps to feel the muscle tighten during the contraction. 
  • Hold for 5 seconds and repeat 10 times as firmly as possible without increasing your symptoms.

What if I need surgery?

In some cases of knee oa, the meniscus (shock absorber of the knee) may be involved. In the past, surgery to repair or remove parts or all of this cartilage was common. Current research, however, has shown in a group of patients who were deemed surgical candidates, 60-70% of those who participated in a physical therapy program, instead of surgery, did not go on to have surgery. Further, after 1 year those outcomes were unchanged. This study suggests that physical therapy may be an effective alternative for those patients who would like to avoid surgery.

It must be investigated. Get a MRI of the knee. You would probably need arthroscopic knee surgery. It is a very safe procedure with uniformly good results. Don?t ignore it lest it become beginning of a bigger problem Why not discuss with me in a video conference? ( Facility provided by lybrate.com)

Joint pain can be caused by a number of issues, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, bursitis, tendinitis or a strain, sprain or other injury affecting the ligaments, bursae or tendons surrounding a joint. It can occur in any part of the body but is most common in the knees, shoulders and hips. The pain can range from mild to severe and may be accompanied by swelling and stiffness in one or more joints. Severe joint pain, especially when caused by degenerative conditions like arthritis, needs proper diagnosis and treatment. You should also consult your doctor if your joint pain is accompanied by swelling, redness and tenderness, or lasts for more than three days. But, you can get rid of mild joint pain with the help of natural home remedies. Massage massage therapy helps relieve joint pain by improving circulation and soothing inflammation. In fact, several studies indicate that regular massage can improve pain, stiffness and range of motion in the affected joint. To massage the affected area, use warm oil like coconut, olive, mustard, castor or garlic oil and apply gentle pressure while massaging. Hot and cold compresses alternating hot and cold compresses can also help ease joint pain. Heat therapy helps decrease pain, increase blood flow and relax sore muscles and joints. Cold therapy reduces inflammation and numbs the areas around the affected joint. 1. Wrap both compresses in separate towels before using them. They should not be applied directly to the skin. 2. Place the hot compress on the affected area for about three minutes. 3. Remove the compress and immediately put a cold compress in its place for about one minute. 4. Repeat the process for 15 to 20 minutes a few times daily until you get relief. Note: do not use heat therapy if the affected area is red, hot and irritated. Do not use cold therapy if you have circulatory problems. Turmeric turmeric is an excellent ayurvedic remedy for joint pain. It contains an active ingredient called curcumin with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. In a 2009 study published in the journal of alternative and complementary medicine, researchers compared the effectiveness of this compound to ibuprofen and found that curcumin was as effective as ibuprofen for pain relief in patients with knee osteoarthritis? mix one teaspoon of turmeric powder and a little honey in a glass of warm milk. Drink it daily, at least for a few days? another option is to take 250 to 500 mg turmeric capsules three times daily until you are satisfied with the results. Note: talk to your doctor before including either of these remedies in your regular routine. Turmeric may interfere with certain medications, such as blood thinners, and may worsen gallbladder problems. For treatment consult privately any queries inform me.

Surgery is usually advised in dealing with combined injuries (ACL tears in combination with other injuries in the knee). Non surgical treatment like physical therapy, rehabilitation is suggested in partial tear. Consult a orthopedic specialist for the same.

I have pain below knee in the bone please help is it a strain or something else ?

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
You should see an orthopaedic surgeon first so that he can evaluate where exactly the pain is and advise appropriate tests for the cause of pain. Sometimes low Vitamin D causes bone pains so get serum vitamin D levels(blood test) done and see the doctor with the report.

You can always get your vitamin levels (B12, D) checked through blood test for confirmation. Besides deficiencies, this pain can also be due to muscular cramps that might happen due to lack of proper muscle strength. You will need to do strengthening excercises to help that. Thirdly, you will need to follow joint protection techniques like avoid long standing, avoid jerky movements like jumping on hard surface, avoid stair climbing etc till you redevelop the strength in the muscles around knee. You can consult to understand the excercises needed at this stage.

My left knee is paining at the joint. I am 40 years old.
Recently this has started.
Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Stiffness might have developed due to weakness of the ligaments & inflamed cartilage. Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping ball underneath the knee and keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee.

Dear , can you please explain the nature of the pain. Is it in one particular knee joint or is it in both the knees. Considering her age it might be a beginning of osteoarthritis. Get an x ray done and start her calcium supplement along with some vitamin d. Please report with x ray.

If its a superficial would then clean it daily with betadine solution and apply mupirocin ointment and do dressing daily. If it is very deep then visit your nearest doctor for better assessment and to rule out infection or deep tissue trauma.

Since five years I had problem of gout and creatine level is 1.9 and I had done angioplasty since three years back. Gout attack frequently. Pl advise me.

M S Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Mumbai
Hello lybrate user, gout is a condition which results from sudden changes in uric acid levels in the body or persistent raised uric acid levels. One way to suppress the attacks is to treat the symptoms only through anti-inflamatory agents but joint damage can continue from this. Other way is to prevent an attack of gout by treating the cause itself. I would suggest you to see a rheumatologist and enquire about drugs which can decrease the formation of uric acid in the body or drugs which can increase its clearance from the body through urine. There are some other precautions to be taken with both the drugs like maintaining adequate hydration, etc and the rheumatologist should be able to explain it to you. There are also some lifestyle modifications like regular exercise but avoiding heavy exhaustion, avoiding certain foods, etc. Kindly consult a rheumatologist to know about the same. Hope this helps.

Treat Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis with the Help of Ayurveda

Treat Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis with the Help of Ayurveda

With age we often experience gradual wear and tear of our body parts, which leads to slow down of body functions. Wear and tear of bones and joints often make movement difficult in various parts, such as hands, hips, legs, knees, ankles, etc. Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis are a two serious and common conditions where wear and tear of the bone is significant. The pain and stiffness in the affected joints vary, but for most people, restricted movement is the main issue. The relieving news is that there are effective, natural methods in Ayurveda which are tested over centuries and used even to date.

These methods aim at improving stiffness, pain control, controlling progression of inflammation, reversal of damage (if not severe), improving range of motion, improving strength and improving overall energy levels.
Ayurveda believes that body’s health is managed with the balance between three vital elements that is vata, pitta, and kapha. Arthritis (both osteo and rheumatoid variety) is believed to be related to vata and arthritis is also known as sandhivata (sandhi meaning joint).

Treatment includes overall body treatment and focused treatment of the affected joint. Oral medicines, oils and external applicants, detoxification and rejuvenation through panchakarma, diet changes, healthy lifestyle are all part of the treatment regimen. Oil and external application on the overall body and affected joints will help lubricate the joints and will allow easy movement. This will help reduce stiffness and improve range of motion.

Dietary changes: Reduce fats, sugar, salt and alcohol. Include a lot more of fish, soy, olive oil, low-fat dairy products, broccoli, green tea, citrus fruits, whole grains, beans, garlic and nuts and seeds. In addition to protein, these have various ingredients, which are useful for bone health and act as anti-inflammatory agents.

Some common panchakarma treatments include:

  1. Choorna Kizhi, where the person is made to assume different positions and mixtures of various herbs are applied to make the person sweat profusely.
  2. Abhyangam is a special oil massage lasting 45 minutes that the patient undergoes for 14 days. In addition to arthritis, it also helps control body ache, fight obesity, revitalises the whole system, induces sleep, and helps fight stress.
  3. Njavarakizhi is similar to the earlier Choorna Kizhi, various oils are used to massage the whole body while the patient is made to sit in different positions. There is also a Njavara rice that is cooked in milk to make a porridge and fed to the patient. This again is continued for 14 days.

The key to managing this condition is to seek help in as early stages of the disease as possible. When there are risk factors that put you at risk, reach out to seek medical help as soon as you realise onset of symptoms.
