What is your age?

Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Your symptoms can be due to hip and knee osteoarthritis. Physical therapy and deep electrotherapy are the mainstay of the treatment. Local analgesic cream and knee brace too would help.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
