Knee support cushion

Common Questions and Answers about Knee support cushion


Avatar f tn They are made up of tough cartilage. They cushion the joint and distribute your body weight across the knee joint. If torn the meniscus kind of get caught as you move the knee. This can cause you knee to "give out." Obviously there are other injuries that can occur including strains and tears of your supporting ligaments such as your ACL.
Avatar n tn Hi, you need to say as to what kind of surgery or conservative treatment he had received when he got his ACL's in both knee ruptured, how long it is since he has underwent treatment and had he recovered completely. he can apply knee cap for some support but it is better he consults a orthopedician who can examine and advise.
Avatar n tn The doctor told her there was nothing he could do. She is 73 years old and he said no knee replacement beause of her age. Is there ANYTHING that she can do?
Avatar n tn In addition, poor forefoot cushion and poor balance support of footwear can excentuate the pain. Try wearing runners whenever possible and avoid heels anytime.
Avatar m tn The changes are most prominent at L4/L5 levels with the intervertebral disc or the cushion support between 2 adjoining vertebrae bulging towards the left side where the L4 nerve root exits from spine to supply the specific areas in back and left lowerlimb. This is also the reason for sharp shooting paindown the left hip, thigh, knee and toe. Consult a neurosurgeon for evaluation since conservative measures have not helped much.

Avatar f tn I would purchase one of those lumbar support cushions made for vehicles that go over or wrap around the seat. I had and have sciatica from scar tissue from my back surgery hitting my nerve. Before my surgery I had a herniated disc and a few bulging discs. Bulging discs aren't as bad as the herniated but when in certain body positions they could bulge out just a tad bit more which in turn could be enough to put pressure on your nerves.
Avatar f tn finally partial knee surgery in both knees, soon after followed by 2 total knee replacements, the last one on the left knee July 24 of this year; the surgery before this one was around Christmas of this year. I feel like so many of you on here. I have not walked in about 4 1/2 years now. This last surgery was the worst; something happened after surgery.
Avatar f tn You very well may find that the better you're able to support your knee, the better your lower leg will feel also. Best of luck and please keep us informed as to how you're doing.
Avatar f tn Ask your pharmacist if a cane or something to support your knee may also be helpful. Please let us know how you are doing. And please try to enjoy the rest of your vacation - even though it require less physical activity on your part. I'll look forward to hearing from you again.
Avatar n tn hello people, I am 60 yr old female with spine curvature, hip and knee arthritis I am having 100mcg fentanol but nothing for breakthrough pain which is detting worse.Being refered to pain management clinic but god knows wden! I feel so tired and pain comes through different movements,can anyone help?
199882 tn?1310188142 Most of the time I fall on my butt and there is enough cushion there that I don't have to worry about getting hurt. But, today when I fell my knee bent right up behind my back. The pain was horrible the pop I heard was loud and there is nobody home to help me up. hmmm Any way I finally got myself pulled up and into a chair. I'm using my electric chair right now until I feel like I can put some weight on it. It is throbbing and swelled up pretty big.
Avatar m tn For pain relief, you may also want to ask your doctor about a flexible knee brace to give your knee/s some added support. While it won't reverse the wear and tear that has already happened, it may allow you some pain relief and the ability to do a little bit more activity that may be more painful wihtout it. I know you said you're a teacher and stand most of the day. I, myself, find that standing in one spot to be somewhat more painful than walking.
Avatar n tn 1) While sleeping at night sleep side ways which gives relief 2) Keep a pillow support to your back for 20 mins so that your buttock will not rest on the bed while sleeping, so it gets no pressure. 3) Use cushion pillows under your buttocks while sitting which are of pure soft cotton, change it very frequently so that it will not become hot due to movement.
Avatar m tn I agree with the comment above as well, good expensive shoes are always a good thing for support, and make sure they cushion the shock from running outside.
Avatar n tn I bought a posturepedic mattress that has to be much better for my back than what I had been sleeping on. I bought new shoes with much better padding and support. I bought a gel cushion that I sit on now pretty much every time I sit. I got a standup laptop stand that I work at sometimes now. I have upped my walks to 35-45 minutes daily. Most of my sensations have been in my left leg.

Avatar m tn Drinking wine can ward off early symptoms of knee osteoarthritis, according to recent research from the UK. Drinkers who sipped 4 to 6 glasses of vino a week were 45 percent less likely to develop knee osteoarthritis than those who abstained from alcohol. But it's not alcohol that contains the antidote for better health; it's the specific ingredients found in wine that keep your creaks from becoming more serious. (Beer drinkers actually increased their risk of arthritis!
Avatar n tn i have had two series in my right knee. each series lasted 6 months. now i have a pretty bad problem with my left knee and i am trying to get a prior authorization from my ins. co to approve it, however they want 90 days of conservative therapy befor they will approve it. i work in a pharmacy, i'm trying to come up with the money myself to get started on the left knee.
Avatar f tn The very painful leg that your mother has can be from bone problems and nerve problems at the same time. You do not say if your mother has had an xray of her lower back, hip, knee and the whole leg. An xray would show if she has degeneration of the bones in the lower spine and also in the knee joints. Rheumatoid arthritis is detected by a blood test and shows up a lot of inflammation markers in the blood - this is how rheumatoid arthritis is detected.
Avatar m tn After about week 4 or 5, I began to notice that the ability to stand still without balance loss was no longer difficult and no longer need to support myself in a standing position, or toweling legs after a shower, and the skin seems to be improving greatly, but I’m more excited about the muscular and imbalance improvements than anything else.
Avatar m tn Only didn’t get any pain in knee. This did continue up to week. No injury and even not gain pain if I press any parts of legs. Pain only arises when I wake up in morning and after seating 2-3 hours on chair. I am software engineer. I concern big hospital doctor (M.D) he had given some report. I have taken all report. Reports are CBC C Bilurubin,CPK assay and B\L LL venous doppler study. From venous drppler study doctor told me that you have nothing and just give some medicine.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
Avatar f tn It is in 'as new' condition, barely used, untrimmed, and has always had memory cushion insoles on top of it whilst I was wearing it. It is a single blade of Carbon fibre down outside of foot so can also get most shoes on without too much fuss. Does anyone on here have LEFT foot foot-drop and a size 9 feet or above and want it? PS if you have FD I found that memory cushion insoles on top of my brace really helped with my gait too as it provides additional support.
Avatar f tn It really hinders my ability to increase my fitness level by walking or running. When I look in the mirror I see that my legs (below the knee) are slightly bowed. I often wonder if that might be the reason and if so is there anything I can do to overcome that problem? I would love to know how to overcome this.
Avatar n tn Other days, I experience some slight swelling, crepitus upon movement (painless, but noticeable), a mild achy pain in the left heel only, OR a slight bubble sensation in the back of the left knee upon extension during a walking step. The bubbly sensation is uncomfortable, but not painful in the least. Can I run? And if not, is it ok to bike ride or even rollerblade?
557230 tn?1269433429 Thanks so much for the support and kicks in the arse...guess I should be happy I have some extra padding back I think one of the things I have to do for me is stay very, very busy. I run into problems when I have free time on my hands, with nothing planned. I'm going to try to keep myself on a better schedule...maybe that will help. Worth a try anyway, right? Thanks again!
Avatar n tn You may find wrist splints may help with giving support to your wrists and hands, insoles in your shoes for your feet problems. Soak your feet each evening and dry them and raise your legs with a cushion under your feet. For my arthritic knee problem, I was told by the physiotherapist to apply a cold compress and have been given some exercises to do and was recommended to take Amitriptyline.
Avatar m tn This means that her bodies natural cushion/shock absorber is non-existent, and therefore each and every movement of her ankle joint creates bone-on-bone friction/grinding, resulting in enormous pain. She thus medicates with codeine as a means of being able to handle the pain during her day to day living. However, she recognizes that her codeine consumption is out of control, and desperately wants to get off of them.
2083449 tn?1381358308 She is going to order some injections (yippie) of something called Euflexa, which is a gel that will help cushion my knee. My knee has about zero cartilage in it. I've had these injections before, and they really do help. I just always had pain pills to go with them! They last about 6 months. I just hope my insurance will cover them, as they are not cheap, and I can't afford this right now. Anyway, I was out of there in 1/2 hour total, with NO pain pill prescription!
