Knee Replacement - Experience a painless Journey

Knee pain is a huge sufferance, especially for elders. During the aging process, bones and joints start to lose their strength and finally end up with debilitation. The final option to get relieved from the distressed pain is Knee Replacement Surgery or Arthroplasty.

Knee Joint Replacement is an operative procedure to resurface the damaged knee due to arthritis. Either plastic parts or metal is utilized to cover the knee joint bones with a kneecap. Knee Replacement Surgery is recommended to a person who has a severe knee injury or arthritis.

What are the affecting factors of knee joint?
  • Osteoarthritis is a kind of degenerative joint disease. It mostly affects the adult and older people. This condition may cause a break in the joint cartilages and adjacent bones in the knee. 
  • Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory condition of the synovial membrane. It results in synovial fluid inflammation which might lead to pain and stiffness. 
  • Traumatic arthritis is caused due to severe injury which may damage the knee cartilage.
The objective of the Knee Replacement surgery is to resurface the damaged knee joint parts and relieve excruciating pain.

Pre-surgery Examination

Before the Surgery, the Orthopedic Surgeon will analyze the patient’s medical history, do the physical examination in order to evaluate the strength, stability, and range of motion of the knee. X-ray / CT/ MRI will help him to analyze the severity of the damage.

How is a Knee replacement surgery performed?

The Orthopedic Surgeon will make an incision up to 10 inches long in the affected knee area. Then, he will remove the damaged surfaces and resurface the knee joint with the prosthesis. Though plastic and metal prosthesis are available, most commonly used is a cemented prosthesis. This cemented prosthesis is attached to the bone with surgical cement. The surgeon will bend and rotate the knee to ensure its smooth functionality before closing the incision. Then, the incision is closed with staples or surgical sutures. To remove the fluid in the surgical site, a drainer may be inserted. Finally, a sterile dressing is done. The knee joint replacement will be performed about 2 hours.

Do you need a Kneecap ??

Yes & no.You certainly don't need a kneecap or hinged brace for arthritis. You are much better off & much more comfortable doing exercises & making subtle changes in your lifestyle. If you have end stages knee arthritis, then also you won't benefit from any braces, you may be better off getting a knee replacement.

If we are able to diagnose isolated arthritis of one half of the knee replacement.
If we are able to diagnose isolated arthritis of one half of the knee, then you will benefit from an offloading brace.The problem with the offloading brace is that it also offloads your purse! Most such braces are very expensive.Another problem is that you need to wear them throughout the day, which may be a challenge n our mostly tropical climate & if you are fond of tight clothing.Sometimes these braces simply don't fit us diameters & that causes the brace to lift off the skin in some places.An ill-fitting brace will not work for you & might actually be counterproductive by constantly rubbing against the skin & eventually ulcerating it!

How Soon will the braces start having its effect?

We are all in a terrible hurry to see results, especially after spending a fortune on the offloading brace. Results in terms of pain relief take time . just like a new shoe, the knee may feel sore. Some people don't obtain that much of pain, but their mobility & joint flexibility improves. In a nutshell, it is unrealistic to expect magic from the braces. Be prepared to wait out a few weeks for its effects to kick in.

Are offloading braces available in India?

Yes, but only on a doctors prescription.All the braces available off the shelf are mostly useless from afar as knee osteoarthritis.

The anatomy of a push-up

If your only upper-body movement is moving beer to your lips, then this one move is sure to get you on the path to fitness and a better body

The push-up is one of those basic exercises, casually thrown at military cadets as a punishment during their training days, in batches of 100s. In fact, says Dr Raju Easwaran, a sports surgeon, the single-arm push-up (with one arm behind the back) is an important yardstick for most commando training around the world. If you’re not going commando, here’s a guide to doing one and getting yourself toned: “It works almost every muscle in the chest, upper back and arms, but it also helps build the core muscles,” says Dr Easwaran, who is a senior consultant with Max Hospitals in Delhi.

“This do-anywhere body-weight exercise has multiple variants, so it’s versatile enough for you to start with the simple wall push-up, used as a rehabilitation tool by physiotherapists for people recovering from a shoulder injury or surgery,” he says.

You could then progress to placing your arms at a higher level (like a step), or performing it with the knees folded, quads on the ground. When starting off, you may use a push-up handle for stability. Avoid it if you have a rotator cuff problem (the muscles around the shoulder). For the rest of us, “Ants can lift many times their weight; surely we should be able to lift at least our own,” says Dr Easwaran. Give yourself 45 days to do a regular push-up.



Praveen Nair, Mumbai-based personal trainer to Bollywood stars like Shraddha Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput in the past, gives us the perfect push-up position.

Get your start straight: Lie down on the ground. Keep feet hip-width apart and get yourself up on the strength of your arms and chest. Stay on your toes and position hands slightly wider than the shoulders, forming a 90-degree angle to the ground. This is the high plank position. Place your hands flat, spreading the fingers out and grounding them. Align your neck and spine in a way that they form a straight line.

Get your muscles and joints ready: Imagine squeezing something under your arm. Your shoulders should be drawn back rather than towards the ears. Be conscious of engaging your core: clenching the glutes and tightening the abs. Your weight will hinge on the three joints: shoulder, elbow and wrist, so keep your hands steady.

Breathe steadily: Inhale as you go down, keeping the elbows close to the body, and not fanning out. This is called an eccentric muscle contraction, when muscles are lengthening and you are building strength. Exhale on the way up. This is called a concentric muscle movement, when muscles are shortened, with some weight on them. Studies have shown that eccentric movements are more important than concentric to build muscles mass. Simply put, this means that it is in the downward movement of a push-up, towards gravity that you’re actually building your body.



Nisha Varma, an American College of Sports Medicine exercise physiologist and a Reebok Master Trainer based out of Pune, points to common errors people make.

The progression is too quick: Perhaps because of the proliferation of online videos that glamourise the advanced forms, people end up doing a single-hand push-up teetering to one side. Focus on posture, progression and your own fitness level so you don’t injure yourself.

The lower back falls in: When you dip, the hip, stomach, and knees touch the floor or are lowered before the chest comes down. This shows lack of core control.

The push-up is not completed fully: When a person does not come back to the high plank position, and comes up just about 80%, the serratus anterior, muscles deep within the chest, are not activated. Again, if you don’t go down completely, you’re not experiencing the full range of motion.



Vinod Channa, an Action-certified personal trainer to Bollywood stars Shilpa Shetty and John Abraham, says it’s necessary to develop mobility in the joints and strength in the muscles before you actually begin a push-up.

Bench press: Lift what you can, even 2 kg, either dumbbells or a bar. Get comfortable doing 10 reps; progress to doing 2 sets, then 3. Increase weight and sets gradually. This will build strength in your chest, arms (especially the triceps) and shoulders.

Planks: Hold a high plank for 10 seconds and build to 30 seconds. Introduce the forearm plank and again progress from 10 seconds. Go on to the side plank. These will strengthen the core.

Mobilisation: Before you begin, warm up the muscles and joints, so you don’t get injured. Do about 10-15 rotations of the neck, shoulders, wrists, hips and ankles.
