My mother is 52 years old and she has been suffering from knee pain for last 5 years and legs too. She had taken medicines for many times but all is same and doctors told her to replace the knee and she is only taking pain killers to remove the pain. Is there any option and what should do? If she replaces knee how much will the total cost?

Knee pain can be due to degeneration which mean she might have arthritis so she need to strengthen the muscle around her knee and legs to reduc the pain. An x ray can confirm the diagnosis.

X rays show bone and joint changes soft tissue injuries (ligament, cartilage, muscle) can be asessed only on examination and mri personally, I do not recommend nandrox injection need for detail history and further investigation if the pain is not improving after 15 days to determine the time to recovery.

From last two weeks I am experiencing knee pain (upper side of knee) in my left foot. I am only 24 years old and has a laptop job of around 12 hrs. I tried itch for 2 days but it didn't help. I wanted to know why I am suffering this pain at this age? Can it be because of sitting whole day or deficiency of calcium or vit-d? Or there can be other reasons also? Please suggest remedies and what type of doctors should I consult to?

Ice packs locally, rest, local painkiller gel, avoiding squatting/sitting cross-legged/stairs, and then knee exercises once better if still hurting, will need investigation.

I have leg thigh knee pain from last one month. I have done blood test. Vitamin b12 n vitamin d was low so doctor proscribed and also cholesterol was high so I consult cardiologist and he proscribed medicines to reduce. I am taking all medicine from last week still I didn't get relief in leg pain. I feel I have blood clots somewhere and on thigh there is thickness that was I never seen. My weight is 50 kg and height 5'2 and my body type is slim and no one is obesity history in my family. I took so oily and junk foods from last two months. Could anyone suggest to whom I should consult for blood clot or can I take aspirin. Is it safe as I have read it melts clots?

Hello lybrate-user. To know the exact point of clotting doppler test is precribed, as per the reports the treatment will be given buti would like to suggest you to do some stretching exercises at home like 1. Leg lift. Lie down on the floor with the back flat. Use a yoga mat, folded blanket, or exercise mat for comfort on a hard floor. Keep the left leg straight and bend the right leg slightly at the knee, bringing the foot closer to the body. Pull the abdominal muscles inward by imagining the belly button pulling down toward the floor. Doing this should bring the lower back down against the floor and help provide extra support during the exercise. Place a hand beneath the lower back to make sure that there is no space between the small of the back and the floor. If there is space for the hand, gently push the lower back down on top of the hand. Slowly lift the left leg without bending the knee. Keep the toes pointed toward the ceiling and stop when the leg is about 12 inches off the floor. It should not be higher than the bent knee on the right leg. Slowly lower the leg back down to the floor. Do not put it down too quickly or let it drop. Repeat two more times with the same leg. Switch side and repeat. 2. Hamstring stretch. Stand straight with the knees only 1–2 inches apart. Hold on to a stable chair, the countertop, or another object for balance. Slowly bend one knee behind the body, lifting the heel off the floor while keeping the thighs aligned. Continue to lift the heel in a smooth motion until the knee bend reaches a 90-degree angle. Keep the straight leg slightly bent to avoid locking it. Hold the bent leg up for 5 seconds and then slowly lower it to the floor. Switch sides and repeat the same. 3. Hamstring curls. This exercise is a variation of the standing hamstring curl. A person can try this version if they have access to a weight bench that is purpose-built for this exercise. It may be more challenging than the standing hamstring curl, depending on how much weight a person uses. Lie face down on the bench with the knees close together. Grip the handles for stability. Tuck the feet under the weight. The weight should sit just above the heels. Slowly bend both knees, using the force of the legs to raise the weight up. Continue to lift the weight in a smooth motion until the knees bend at a 90-degree angle. Hold the weight up for 5 seconds and then slowly lower it back down. Do it for 10-15 times. And also if possible take ift (inferential therapy) for 5 days. Ift also helps removing clots.

Hello . There may be compression or jerk when you fell down, apply ice pack or apply diclofenac ointment twice a day for 3 days and clean it with hot water following fermentation and do the following exercises. Knee strengthening exercises do not affect the knee joint directly, but they strengthen the muscles surrounding it. Strong muscles in the legs can help provide support for the knees. This support may alleviate pressure and strain on these joints, which can relieve pain and help a person be more active. 1. Leg lift. Lie down on the floor with the back flat. Use a yoga mat, folded blanket, or exercise mat for comfort on a hard floor. Keep the left leg straight and bend the right leg slightly at the knee, bringing the foot closer to the body. Pull the abdominal muscles inward by imagining the belly button pulling down toward the floor. Doing this should bring the lower back down against the floor and help provide extra support during the exercise. Place a hand beneath the lower back to make sure that there is no space between the small of the back and the floor. If there is space for the hand, gently push the lower back down on top of the hand. Slowly lift the left leg without bending the knee. Keep the toes pointed toward the ceiling and stop when the leg is about 12 inches off the floor. It should not be higher than the bent knee on the right leg. Slowly lower the leg back down to the floor. Do not put it down too quickly or let it drop. Repeat two more times with the same leg. Switch side and repeat. 2. Hamstring stretch. Stand straight with the knees only 1–2 inches apart. Hold on to a stable chair, the countertop, or another object for balance. Slowly bend one knee behind the body, lifting the heel off the floor while keeping the thighs aligned. Continue to lift the heel in a smooth motion until the knee bend reaches a 90-degree angle. Keep the straight leg slightly bent to avoid locking it. Hold the bent leg up for 5 seconds and then slowly lower it to the floor. Switch sides and repeat the same. 3. Hamstring curls. This exercise is a variation of the standing hamstring curl. A person can try this version if they have access to a weight bench that is purpose-built for this exercise. It may be more challenging than the standing hamstring curl, depending on how much weight a person uses. Lie face down on the bench with the knees close together. Grip the handles for stability.

Continue to lift the weight in a smooth motion until the knees bend at a 90-degree angle. Hold the weight up for 5 seconds and then slowly lower it back down. Do it for 10-15 times. Follow up if any thank you.

Hello, you may be having osteoarthritis of knees. Have you got x-rays done for your knees. Taking long term pain killers may cause side effects especially in your age. Get x-ray of both knee ap and lateral standing. Consult me with reports.

Follow these dos and don’ts to help your knees feel their best. 1. Don’t rest too much. Too much rest can weaken your muscles, which can worsen joint pain. Find an exercise program that is safe for your knees and stick with it. If you're not sure which motions are safe or how much you can do, talk with your doctor or a physical therapist. 2. Do exercise. Cardio exercises strengthen the muscles that support your knee and increase flexibility. Weight training and stretching do, too. For cardio, some good choices include walking, swimming, water aerobics, stationary cycling, and elliptical machines. 3. Don’t risk a fall. A painful or unstable knee can make a fall more likely, which can cause more knee damage. 4. Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (rice) is good for knee pain caused by a minor injury or an arthritis flare. Give your knee some rest, apply ice to reduce swelling, wear a compressive bandage, and keep your knee elevated. 5. Don't overlook your weight. If you're overweight, losing weight reduces the stress on your knee. You don’t even need to get to your "ideal" weight. Smaller changes still make a difference. 6. Don't be shy about using a walking aid. A crutch or cane can take the stress off of your knee. Knee splints and braces can also help you stay stable. 7. Don't let your shoes make matters worse. Cushioned insoles can reduce stress on your knees. 8. Do play with temperature. For the first 48 to 72 hours after a knee injury, use a cold pack to ease swelling and numb the pain. A plastic bag of ice or frozen peas works well. Use it for 15 to 20 minutes three or four times a day. Wrap your ice pack in a towel to be kind to your skin. After that, you can heat things up with a warm bath, heating pad, or warm towel for 15 to 20 minutes, three or four times a day. 9. Don’t jar your joint (s). High-impact exercises can further injure painful knees. Avoid jarring exercises such as running, jumping, and kickboxing. Also avoid doing exercises such as lunges and deep squats that put a lot of stress on your knees. These can worsen pain and, if not done correctly, cause injury.
