Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain yoga therapy


Avatar f tn I injuried my back before I became pregent I have really bad back pain I'm only 5 months and its getting worse I don't know what i can do to relieve some of this discomfort and pain any suggestions?
Avatar f tn I have arthritis in my knee and in my left foot - but think it is also now in my hip. I was taking percocet for pain but have tried to get off them as I feel I was getting addicted. Right now I am looking for advice - the bottom of my left foot hurts and aches... is there anything you can put in your shoes or on your foot to lessen the pain? It's not swollen, and I don't really want a store bought insert because then it makes it too high for my foot.
Avatar m tn Try a new pair of shoes, and maybe a different kind than what you normally wear. (I had severe knee & hip pain, until I stopped wearing the brand of sneakers I've worn for the last 10 years!! I am in Crocs, now.) Also, try adding some mild yoga stretches into a routine, a few times a week. They don't have to be real extreme, just enough to stretch the area where it hurts. Or, continue the exercises that Physical Therapy showed you.
Avatar f tn im tring yoga, but after a couple days i am ready to quit from the pain. does it get better or should i quit.
Avatar f tn m 18 years old, if I stand up for a long period of time my lower back, hip and pelvic area, and knee start to hurt it gets so painful I just wanna lay in a ball and cry, I try rest it as much as I can. I've been to the doctor they sent me to the hospital and didn't hear from them again, its been coming and going for about 2 years now, what could it be ?
Avatar n tn Do you have access to a gym? Or is this for at home exercises without any equipment?
Avatar f tn Had RK microfracture & LK OATS. Somewhat able to do things with tolerable pain level. Started back with the floor pilaties & yoga. Too much stretching I guess. I started where you are with similiar discomforts. Then started to hurt behind the knee and on the lateral side. Now...I can't stand without both knee fatique and pain, i can't walk without pain. It has ruined me! I'm walking with braces and oh boy if i have to go up or down stairs, HELP~!
Avatar n tn If I will do yoga in the morning then whole day I will get shin pain and knee pain also,mostly below the knee and side of the knee cap.I have a swelling from last 1 year below my knee cap and above the tibia.It is not growing but as usual the with the same size.And the shin area ,mostly side of the tibia area is sore to touch,if by mistake i will bang that area the I will get severe pain .
Avatar f tn I injured my knee doing Yoga and playing Badminton. The MRI showed a torn cartilage, but the surgeon did not agree and thinks it is a MCL strain or sprain. He recommended a cortisone shot and PT. I had the cortisone injection. Within hours my knee swelled tremendously and I was not able to move it out of the position, nor walk, I had to use crutches and have my husband help move my leg to change position. It was tremendously painful!
Avatar n tn The chiropractor asked me to cross my left knee over my right knee then used that rubber hammer. My knee did not react. This was the first over the years. She thought I should see a foot doctor first because it might narrow down some testing with a neurologist but I had felt seeing a neurologist would be more important at this point since my knee did not respond to the knee test. I do not have insurance at the moment but will in September. Do you think waiting is a bad idea?
1587585 tn?1309432260 I can straighten my leg all the way (but its sore) When I bend my knee back it really hurts. The pain seems to be coming from behind my knee. What do you think is causing the pain?
Avatar f tn ice packs, heat pads, massage therapy, physiotherapy, yoga, meditation, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, Reiki, acupressure and acupuncture, guided imagery and biofeedback. Please discuss with your doctor what would be best for you during your pregnancy. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn This spring I did 3 rounds of prolotherapy on my right knee (bone on bone) which really improved the pain level. But after 18 months of favoring my right knee, my left knee is bad. I choose prolozone as I like the research showing it replacing the cartilage as opposed to pain management. I have had 3 shots in both knees. My right one is doing ok, but after my last shot 3 days ago, my left knee is swollen and pretty painful.
Avatar m tn I too have patella femoral syndrome. The best thing I ever did for my knee was to go to physical therapy. Look for a good manual therapist. They typically treat not just the knee but also look at how your calf and hip are affecting your knee.
Avatar n tn However, if you find a good instructor (such as one that specializes in Anusara Yoga, or Yoga Therapy) I trust the pain may subside substantially. I am lucky enough to not have had any pain for seven months, and I practice yoga three times a week and o a lot of core strengthening. This combo was the answer for my particular situation!!
Avatar f tn I've been having constant left leg pain in my calf and behind my knee. The only time it doesn't throb is when I lay down with my leg elevated. But standing and walking has become unbearable. The calf gets swollen and is painful to the touch. This is only my left leg though; my right leg/feet doesn't even get swollen. I'm just about 16 weeks pregnant. I saw my primary doctor on Monday and he sent me for ultrasound of the leg to check for blood clots. The test came back negative.
Avatar n tn Hello, The knee pain can be associated with any condition so a proper examination and diagnosis is required if it bothers you. It can be knee injury due to knee sprain , prior knee injury ,dislocated knee , dislocated patella, femoral condyle fracture, torn ligament , knee overuse , knee infection due to any bacterial infection , knee inflammation due to synovitis or bursitis or Knee arthritis due to arthritis , osteoarthritis , rheumatoid arthritis or gout and any tumor. Take care!
Avatar f tn Also if this helps, I have had knee pain since i was a kid and we just thought it was growing pains, but i still get it so i am also thinking i will get tested for arthritus. It is bad in that i go to sleep each night with a heat pack and tiger balm rubbed into it. My left hip has recently started to have the same aching feeling. It all seems to be on my left side!
Avatar n tn Last night, I was unable to lye on my back and witnessed excruciating pain in left thigh above the knee. When I raise my leg from lying down, the pain is unbearable. I practice this yoga 3 times a week for the past 14 years. I stayed away from the practice for 10 days and the pain appeared to have disappeared. Well not entirely. I then continued my practice only to notice my back was not healed entirely. So I stayed off the practice again.
Avatar f tn While I was pregnant I had problems with a nerve running from my lower back (left side) down my outter thigh, around my knee and down my calf! I just started walking 1-2 hours a day, three weeks ago and the pain is back again! It seems to only occur when I move certain ways.. or while lying down. I am on anti-depressants and was wondering if there was anything I could take to ease the pain... and should I stop exercising so much?? Anything? Thank youuu!
Avatar m tn Hello! It's been four months now that my right knee is slightly swollen. The swelling is visible on the knee itself and the bottom part of my quadricep. It is not much but it's visible especially when compared with my other knee. I don't feel pain, only minor discomfort which gets a bit worse and spreads to a larger area (the discomfort, not the swelling) when I stand up or sit down for too long.
Avatar n tn m no expert, but if you have the courage for cortisone you have the courage for other things that might actually fix the problem, and might not, such as prolotherapy or platelet rich plasma therapy. If you have a chronic pain center near you they should be able to discuss these alternatives, but they're often not covered by insurance. Good luck.
Avatar f tn But how do we deal with pain and nomore pain killers? I understand i will always have pain. So if anyone is a cronic pain patient please post what helps. I use heat. Motrin. Lidoderm patches. Creams. Yoga but how to deal with this is confusing and scarey. Or will the pain go away and how long does it take? Ive seen 30 60 90 days.
Avatar f tn my acl had ripped during physical therapy so i had acl replacement on oct. 23 of 07. Ever since then i have had the worse knee pain ever. i can't walk in the morning, severe pain unless i have at least 2 norcos. I don't have insurance but i have paid for a reavulation at the same physical therapy place i went to and they told me that i needed to go to pain management and more surgery for knee replacement. i'm only 18....
1359905 tn?1277572710 No tests were done to determine if, what the doctor said was right, that I have a contusion. The pain has not lessened from the accident 7 days ago, and pain killers are not helping. Not sure what else I can or should do about this pain.
Avatar n tn Hi I am experience a similiar type pain in my knee. It started rather suddenly and within a few days grew to the point of pain that involuntarily causes me to scream out loud. Each episode lasted no longer than 30 seconds or so, and were usually spaced out by hours of no pain.
