My father is suffering in osthioartharities .now he can not walk. What can we do?
You can do the following exercises for knee pain. 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. You can contact me for a detailed consultation.

Arthroplasty - What Should You Know?

Arthroplasty - What Should You Know?

Arthritis has often turned out to be a party-pooper for aged people. The worsening pain as one grows older is a concern for many, with more than 10 million official cases filed per year, in India. Hip and knee arthroplasty, in a strict sense, is the surgical reconstruction or replacement of joints that swell with age.

Main types of arthroplasty
Arthroplasty is generally done on people aged sixty or above and those suffering from osteoarthritis, frozen shoulder, joint stiffness, etc. The main type of arthroplasty is a joint replacement, where the actual organ is surgically replaced with a prosthetic version of it. It aims to improve the muscle strength of the injured portion of the patient's body. Surgeries sometimes go wrong, but more than 90% of hip replacement surgeries have turned out to be successful in the last decade or so. Another popular form of arthroplasty is the Inter-positional arthroplasty, in which skin, muscle or tendons are inter-positioned to keep the inflammation in check.

More details that you need to know

Recovery time
Once a joint is appropriately replaced, the patient needs about three months to get back to a regular lifestyle, especially in the case of knee surgery. For hips, the recovery time drops to around two months, although it mostly depends on the patient’s condition before surgery and the successfulness of the operation.

What can you expect post-surgery?
If both knees or both hips need to be surgically replaced, doctors attempt to do it together, which reduces the chances of more pain during surgery. After the knee surgery is done, it’s prescribed not to kneel until fully recovered. It does not necessarily hurt the patient, but they do not exactly like the temporary pain. And after the hip surgery is done, patients can not immediately return to their usual sleeping position. It takes them almost two months to sleep on their back, and not on their operative side.

What are the risks involved?
There are certain risks involved with a hip and knee arthroplasty. In patients with rheumatoid arthritis, arthroplasty often worsens the condition of space between two joints. Otherwise, allergic reactions to the anesthesia are common. Sometimes, the recently replaced unstable joint becomes prone to another accident just after surgery.

Arthroplasty that costs about Rs.5 lakhs can be heavy on the pocket. Thus, you can look for insurance options before opting for the procedure. Patients who refuse to undergo surgery, are prescribed to take certain drugs that help with arthritis. And due to their refusal, they are also mandated to perform light exercises that keep their joints mobile.

Arthritis is an alarmingly growing concern with statistics showing there is a possibility of surgery demands exceeding 3 million by the end of 2030, mostly due to obesity and work rate of the middle-aged people. And since hip and knee are the most affected, arthroplasty is going be a necessity in the next twenty years, if it is not kept in check.

Diacerein can cause loose stools sometimes. These medications do not help if your arthritis is severe. Weight reduction and activity modification like avoiding squatting and sitting on the floor and thigh muscle strengthening exercises can help. If they do not they knee replacement is the final option.
