It may be due to osteoarthritis called sandhigat vata in Ayurveda. Kindly do x-ray of it for diagnosis. You have to avoid potatoes, dal, sprouts in food. You can apply Murivenna oil at knee at morning and evening. You can take Luke warm water for it.

Hi. Acute pain in knees while running is not normal. There may be a problem in your knee cap or meniscus or any cartilage in knee joint. This has to be clinically evaluated and appropriately treated. I would also advise you to stop running as it might make the matter more worse until you get your problem evaluated.

Ways To Manage Knee Pain With Physiotherapy!

Knee pain is one of the most common and painful ailments that can limit mobility. Injuries can result in cartilage or meniscal tears or sprains too. Obesity is another reason because of which knee pain is on the rise. Also, regular wear and tear of ligaments and tendons around the knees due to old age is another cause. These days, with reduced physical activities and sedentary lifestyles, the rate at which knees are wearing out has also become accelerated. Whatever the reason, a correct diagnosis followed by prompt treatment can help. Over the years, physiotherapy has been playing an important role in treating knee injuries. Whether to supplement the various drugs to reduce pain and inflammation or to avoid surgery, physiotherapy has helped many and its popularity is growing every day. Here are some ways that physiotherapy can help reduce pain.

  • Improve flexibility of tendons: The knee cap is an area where there are lot of tendons and ligaments, coordinating to enable movement. Careful exercising can ensure that the flexibility of tendons and ligaments is improved, thereby making your knee movement easier and less painful.
  • Improves blood supply: As we all know, proper movement requires good blood supply. Exercising with special focus on the knee ensures that blood supply is improved, and thereby the supporting ligaments and tendons function optimally.
  • Enhances the knee cap function: The knee cap is that portion which joins your thigh bone to your calf bones. This is prone to slip out of place, especially with arthritis and injuries. This can be painful and limit movement to a great degree. Focused exercises aimed at improving knee cap function will ensure that the knee cap has a wider range of function, and does not slip out of its socket easily.
  • Reduce rigidity: Once you start physiotherapy, you will feel your knees getting more flexible. The rigidity that had set in as a result of injuries and/or old age will also reduce over a period of time.
  • Slow down the wear and tear: When you start physiotherapy after knee damage, continuing the exercise routine, of course with expert guidance, can reduce the pace at which further damage might happen. A word of caution though. Be sure to consult an experienced physiotherapist before you begin. Exercising in a bad manner can do equal or more harm than the original injury or old age itself.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Some of the most common problems associated with knee pain are sprained ligaments, meniscus tears, tendinitis, and runner's knee. If you have an old knee injury that wasn’t properly treated, it may flare up now and then or hurt all the time. Give rest and abstain from intense physical activity. Ice it to curb pain and swelling. Do it for 15 to 20 minutes every 3 to 4 hours. Keep doing it for 2 to 3 days or until the pain is gone. Ice it to curb pain and swelling. Do it for 15 to 20 minutes every 3 to 4 hours. Keep doing it for 2 to 3 days or until the pain is gone. Elevate your knee with a pillow under your heel when you're sitting or lying down to cut down on swelling. Get yourself investigated for vitamin d and calcium levels and consult an orthopedic for additional investigations needed to be done.

Hi. It's 3 years post injury and the fact that you have started pain in your knee suggests that your cartilage in the knee has started to wear out. You need to get get your knee xrays done and also mri if required so see how much damage actually has already happened. If the damage is minimal then I would advise to get yourself checked for the actual cause and get it treated or else time is not too far that your knee joint may damage. For symptomatic treatment you can take etorocoxib 60 mg if severe pain. Acl tear is the most common Ligament which tears and can be easily treated with key hole surgery. Day care surgery don't fear.

I am having a knee pain and it happens when I stand up after sitting for a while.

Hi lybrate-user, Pick exercises that avoid bending and straightening of the knee. Doing the exercises with the knee straight will avoid irritation caused by the patella gliding up and down in the intercondylar groove of the femur. / Brace the joint if need be for support especially when walking or climbing stairs. You might need the additional support of a brace until local muscles get stronger to provide needed support. / Massage your knee with Mahanarayan herbal oil and have Panchakarma or Marma Chikitsa (Ayurvedic Acupressure) for your knee. Panchakarma is the Ayurvedic detoxification and rejuvenation therapeutic treatment. Ideally Panchakarma should be done 3-4 times a year in between change of seasons. It opens clogged channels in the body and helps clean the system of toxins and rejuvenates bodily tissues. When done for recovery after injuries, it can improve the strength of the system and help the body heal faster. / Doing regular massage of the knee and surrounding structures will help promote circulation and lymphatic flow. Will create a flushing effect to remove waste products and help the joint heal faster. / A ginger poultice applied to the knee will help with pain, circulation and healing. Ayurvedic herbs with Guggulu, Ashwagandha, Musta, Guduchi, Triphala, Shilajit, Ginger and Turmeric can be very effective anti-inflammatories, pain relievers and detoxifiers. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
