Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Hi, The treatment depends on the severity of the osteoarthritis and the severity of her debility. In mild to moderate situations, she can avoid climbing stairs, sitting on the floor, using the lower commode, and all these precautions will improve her pain. Strengthening the quyadriceps and hamstrings will give very good benefit, as also oral and local application of pain medicines. COnsult an orthopaedician before using medicines. You appear to be suffering from Plantar fascitis. This is a common problem that arises out of inadequate stretching and tight muscles. Stretch your calf and foot every day, use a soft footwear. If your condition does not improve, please meet a good Orthopaedician. Regards, Dr Saseendar, Consultant Sports Surgeon, www.caresportsinjury.com
