Simple Knee ExerciesSpecific 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 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. I 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. Knee pain more than 2 weeks:if your knee is paining since 2 weeks, then you have to rethink whether you had any injury in the previous years. I 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. As arthritis is very common if anyone would've neglected any injury in the previous years. You can take Ultrasonic therapy in one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics which would help to heal the damaged cartilages along with shortwave diathermy which would help to improve the blood circulation. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation.

Now she is taking medicine pantocid DSR, flexura, shelcal xt, arachitol injection after 15 days, ostospray nasal spray, metadec5lac from last 1.5 month she is feel better after taking this medicine. Dr. also suggest to take PTH injection her PTH report is 26.4. Now she is feeling better her pain reduce 80%. Kindly tell me how long these medicine will take.

Orthopedist,
The patient can consider stopping NSAID (Flexura) if pain is relieved. Rest of the medications for osteoporosis will continue for some time. Inj PTH can also be considered if PTH is within normal range. You can get a baseline DEXA, if not already done and repeat it after 9-12 months to monitor improvement. She needs a brace to support her back. Also physiotherapy in form of quadriceps n hamstring stretching, assisted/ active mobilization of patient is important However, you need to see your doctor every 15-30 days to look for development of any side effects of any of these medications. Also, see a gastroenterologist for CLD. Hope it helps. Since I have not seen the patient in person, kindly consult your doctor before altering any medication/treatment.

Hot or cold compresses. Applying heat or cold may help. "Some people like heat, some like cold, Deal says. "Whatever feels best. TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation). A TENS system includes a small, battery-powered machine, connected by wires to a pair of electrodes. The electrodes are connected to your skin near the pain source. A mild electrical current travels through your skin and goes along your nerve fibers. It may reduce pain by changing the way your brain perceives pain, experts say. One session takes about 15 minutes. "TENS is sometimes helpful -- not a game-changer but worth a try, Deal says. Massage. This may give your muscles relief. Get your doctor's approval first, only get massage from a qualified therapist, and make sure the therapist knows about your osteoporosis and your fracture. OSTEOPOROSIS ExerciseExercising regularly builds and strengthens bones. Weight-bearing exercises—where bones and muscles work against gravity—are best. These include aerobics, dancing, jogging, stair climbing, tennis, walking, and lifting weights. People who have osteoporosis may want to attempt gentle exercise, such as walking, rather than jogging or fast-paced aerobics, which increase the chance of falling. Exercising three to four times per week for 20-30 minutes each time helps.
