Beneficial methods to increase knee strength

The knee is one of the largest joints in the body. It provides us the flexibility to do daily activities like sitting, standing, walking, running with ease. Age related knee problems are common, however, due to changing lifestyle, younger people are also experiencing knee pains. This may be due to….

  • Knee injury
  • Nutritional deficiency
  • Heavy intake of sodium
  • Smoking or drinking

Here are some of the changes that may help to strengthen the knees:

  • Do A Proper Knee Exercise:  There are some exercise which are targeted on the knees especially. This exercise helps in strengthening the weak muscles around knee joints it also helps in strengthening knee bones. These exercise includes sit-ups, step-ups, lunges, squats, thigh contraction, knee bends, knee strengthening stretches, swiss ball, straight leg raises.  Doing this exercises 30-40 minutes per day will help to strengthen the knee. Stop doing the exercise if knee pain increase and consult the doctor. Get a proper guidance on the exercises which are suitable for the patient.
  • Massage: Massage therapy is best method known to get relief of knee pain. Rubbing warm oil (coconut oil, mustard oil, olive oil) on patient’s knees will help in improving proper blood circulation in the veins around the knees. Always massage 3-4 times a week for 10 to 15 minutes to get the better result. If the patient is suffering from extreme knee pain then consult a doctor and get help of an experienced massage therapist.
  • Intake of Vitamin D: Vitamin D is known to be extremely beneficial for bones and joints health. Patient suffering from knee pain can get vitamin D from the sunlight. Hence exposing their knees in morning sunlight before 11 a.m. for 15-20 minutes daily is very much useful to decrease the further risk of trauma. Also, they can get the source of vitamin D from dietary source such as fish, cod liver oil, eggs yolks, dairy products and cereals.
  • Calcium: Calcium is essential for bone health. Thus, to increase knee strength eat lots of leafy green vegetable, dairy products, cereals, almonds, oranges.

    Before and After Knee Replacement Surgery

    FAQS

    Knee replacement is required for advanced arthritis of the knee joint, producing painful limitation of movements and restriction in activities of daily living. Knee replacement as a solution should be offered when all non–surgical methods of treatment failed and painkiller medicines and injections also failed to reduce the Knee and hip pains.

    Knee replacement can be total or unicondylar, depending on the number of compartments involved. Among the total knee replacement, there are two popular designs- Cruciate Retaining, and Posterior Stabilized. The decision for the design is best taken by the operating orthopedic surgeon based on the integrity of ligaments. Patella resurfacing as a routine is a debatable subject.

    Yes, most knee replacement surgeries are minimally invasive, with numerous benefits to the patient, including smaller incisions, less tissue trauma, bleeding and post–operative pain, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery, and earlier return to work and activities — in weeks rather than months. Advantages of Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement Surgery. Patients Start walking in few hours of surgery. Patients start climbing the staircase from second day of his surgery. Patients Discharge with in 3 Days from the Hospital after surgery. No blood loss during the surgery, no blood Transfusion required. Less Physiotherapy.( No Physiotherapist required for home) Less Antibiotic. Stitchless Surgery. Recovery time is just two – three week.

    Bilateral knee replacement in the same sitting, can be performed if both the knee joints are damaged to the same extent, however, the medical condition of the patient, and bone quality must be kept in consideration.

    Surgery through Minimally Invasive technique patients start walking on the same day and staircase climbing starts from the second day of surgery. Patients can resume his work after 3 – 4 week.

    The most significant risks include Infection, Deep vein thrombosis,and Aseptic loosening of implants. The risks correlate with the co-morbid medical condition, and must be discussed with the patient before surgery.

    Patients normally require hospitalization for 3-4 days in single knee replacement, and up to 5-6 days in both knee replacement surgery

    A single knee replacement takes approximately 90 min- 2 hours. Both knee replacement surgery takes approx 2-3 hours.

    Years ago, knee replacement surgery was reserved for elderly patients due to a high complication rate and lack of implant durability. Modern techniques have allowed orthopaedic surgeons to base surgical decisions on a patient’s pain and disability, and not necessarily chronological age. Most patients who undergo knee replacement are between the ages of 50 and 80, but surgeons evaluate patients individually and primarily on their physiologic age and demands.

    Patients can resume his/her light work after discharge from the hospital, no need for rest.

    Patients are given epidural anesthesia for surgery, and post op pain relief. They are expected to follow instruction from physiotherapist regarding muscle training.
