Want a Fit Spine: 5 Must Do Exercises

Spinal cord is a very important part of your body as it renders support to your body.  It also gives your body a good posture and thus maintaining a healthy spine is very essential. An unfit spinal cord can lead to various complicated problems.

The following are 5 must do exercises in order to maintain a healthy spine:

  1. Exercising your core muscles can help you to maintain a fit spine. Your core muscles refer to the muscles of your lower back and your abdominal muscles. These muscles give support to your spine. So exercising them can give you a healthy spine.
  2. Walking regularly can also give you a healthy spine. It is suitable for people of all age groups. Daily walking can help you to recover from various spinal illnesses as well such as spinal stenosis.
  3. Swimming is also a good exercise for maintaing a fit spinal cord. Swimming helps to exercise all back muscles and thus, gives you a healthy spinal cord.
  4. Lying down straight with your face down on an even and firm surface for about twenty minutes can help you to get a healthy spine and also a good body posture.
  5. Cycling can also help you achieve a healthy spine. While cycling, all your back muscles and the muscles of the lower part of your body are engaged in physical activity. If the muscles of your lower back are strong, then it can help you to keep your spine fit.

Other than these exercises, stretching your limbs and other stretching exercises are also beneficial for a healthy spine. But it is highly recommended for you to consult a doctor before doing any exercise in order to be guided in the proper manner and avoid further complications.

My mother is suffering from brain tumour. It was diagnosed in 2008 and it was operated in 2009. So now my mother in not so conscious about the surroundings, keep on asking few things whole day like asking to give her biscuits whole day and so on. Her hairs are not grown till now and sometime she fall also while walking not because of any fits or seizures but due to walking imbalance. So our main concern is can we improve her position to previous state before the operation by some technology and we have heard a term neuro physiotherapy. Is that beneficial?

Hello, in my knowledge it can really help her, enhance and/or maximise the functional ability. Nothing is hundred percent guaranteed but rather than letting her be, it is better to get treatment done. Will be good for you and your family. Consult a neurologist before going ahead, there are other ways too, so it would be good to show her reports, history etc. To a neurologist and go ahead.

After effects of head injury are not uncommon. The memory loss during your head injury was due to post traumatic amnesia. You do not have to worry about that.

I, at times, forget the name of a person I very well know. Like in a party I want to introduce to my wife someone whom I know. I feel at a loss to find that the name of the person whom I want to introduce does not come to my mind. Like forgetting the name of a film actor while watching a film on the TV screen. Otherwise I have a sharp memory. I can mentally multiply or add/subtract numbers, do other calculations. Like I buy something. Before the shopkeeper calculates the amount I readily come out with the figure. Being a lawyer I can remember judgments and the ratios drawn from the judgments. But I forget the names. GENERALLY BAD IN REMEMBERING NAMES. Is it the onset of dementia like Alzheimer's?

Dear sir, this alone is not suggestive of dementia. This kind of thing can happen in younger people as well, but more commonly in the elderly. Please make sure your thyroid levels and doses are appropriate. Also get a vitamin B12 level done if not already done before. If all of these are normal, then we need to keep a watch on this to see if there is any major worsening in this. Please bear in mind that the very fact that one is paying attention to this may falsely elevate the number of instances of forgetting because incidents which would have otherwise been ignored will now be taken into account. Therefore, I said that only if there is a sudden or severe worsening in these symptoms we need to worry. otherwise there does not seem to be a problem.

How to Deal With a Patient Suffering From Asperger's Syndrome?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How to Deal With a Patient Suffering From Asperger's Syndrome?

Asperger's Syndrome or Asperger's Disorder is a neurotypical condition that affects the development of the child the effects of which continue into adulthood. This condition typically shows up as difficulties faced by the patient when it comes to social interactions as well as other nonverbal means of communication. It should not be confused with autism as the patient has no speech and cognitive development delay. 

Asperger's syndrome can show up as restricted and repetitive patterns in the behaviour of the patient. It lies at the higher end of the autism spectrum and the signs are usually less obvious.

Here are a few ways with which you can effectively deal with someone who is suffering from this disorder:

  1. Routine: The patient suffering from this condition will need a certain kind of stability as it is very difficult to predict what will happen in the near future or to even plan for it. The best way to tackle this scenario is with the help of a proper routine that can help the patient achieve some kind of control over the situation surrounding him or her so that he or she is better equipped and more capable of handling normal functioning and social situations as well.
  2. Information: It is also a good idea to help these patients in looking at and in processing information. While normal people may easily be able to discard insignificant or unimportant information, the brain of the patient suffering from asperger's syndrome does not allow him or her to do so. In many cases, the patient is not able to filter the important and the unimportant information. This can debilitate many functions. So, it is important to be present to help the patient in making decisions and processing information that is actually relevant to his or her functioning.
  3. Learning: One of the most crucial things to remember with the Asperger's patient is that they tend to understand and process things when they have a visual presentation rather than being told verbally. So showing them things practically in the proper manner is the right way to help them learn and process situations in a correct way. This will prevent them from doing things in the same old way even when their brains tell them that it will lead to wrong results.
  4. Physical Abilities: Poor motor skills as well as lack of proper organisation skills are traits that usually characterise these patients. It is important to make them aware of this during games and activities that require management as well as use of social skills. For example, football and other such activities can be introduced in the routine. This will promote interaction with the team in order to play and enjoy the game.

My father is a paralyzed men. And he is 45 years old. His mouth smells bed even he Brushes 3 time a day. What should he do. Please suggest.

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth may be a warning sign of gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque on teeth. Bacteria cause the formation of toxins to form, which irritate the gums. If gum disease continues untreated, it can damage the gums and jawbone. Other dental causes of bad breath include poorly fitting dental appliances, yeast infections of the mouth, and dental caries (cavities). The medical condition dry mouth (also called xerostomia) also can cause bad breath. Saliva is necessary to moisten the mouth, neutralize acids produced by plaque, and wash away dead cells that accumulate on the tongue, gums, and cheeks. If not removed, these cells decompose and can cause bad breath. Dry mouth may be a side effect of various medications, salivary gland problems, or continuous breathing through the mouth. Many other diseases and illnesses may cause bad breath. Here are some to be aware of: respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis, chronic sinus infections, postnasal drip, diabetes, chronic acid reflux, and liver or kidney problems. You can buy a number of mouthwashes that claim to eliminate bad breath. However, many of these generally provide only a temporary way to mask unpleasant mouth odor. There are, however, several antiseptic mouth-rinse products that kill the germs that cause bad breath. Ask your dentist about which product is best for you.

Dear , it appears that due to prolonged diabetes your large arteries at leg are getting affected. In a diabetic person it is a serious sign of compromise of blood supply to the limb. I suggest you to immediately get a colour doppler of the lower limb done and discuss this issue with your physician.

Physiotherapy Treatment for Head Injury

BPTh/BPT, MPTh/MPT

Physiotherapy Treatment for Head Injury

PHYSIOTHERAPY TREATMENT OF HEAD INJURY

The treatment may comprise of the following measures:

IMPROVES ALERTNESS OR AROUSAL THROUGH SENSORY STIMULATION:

The patient who is drowsy or confused need to be stimulated by makes them more alert and awake. The therapist should encourage the patient’s cooperation during the treatment. The main aim is to stimulate the reticular activating system by making the patient sit or even stand in the tilt table.

The therapist should provide tactile, visual, auditory and Proprioceptive stimulation to the patient that will send facilitatory signals to the brain and will enable the alert response to be provoked. Auditory stimulation can be given by speaking to the patient during the course of treatment. Visual stimulation is given by showing familiar faces, objects or movement in the visual field of the patient. 

Proprioceptive stimulation by giving traction and approximation at joint structures is very helpful in stimulating the arousal response in the patient.

PREVENTION OF SPASTICITY:

As hyper tonicity generally sets in almost all head injury cases various measures need to be taken to keep them under control. Gentle passive movement, gradual rhythmic sustained stretch, prolonged icing for 20 minutes over the muscles, biofeedback, proper positioning are certain measures that needs to be employed for controlling spasticity.

MAXIMISE THE PATIENT’S FUNCTIONAL CAPACITY:

The main aim of this management is to improve the ROM, improve the control of voluntary movement, strengthening paretic muscles, improve the coordination, balance and teach various safety measures.

The treatment should be wide spread over the periods of time as the patient’s attention span and endurance is very less.

NEUROMUSCULAR TRAINING can be given through the development sequence by inhibiting abnormal movement pattern and by facilitating normal movement pattern.

The patient may give activities like bridging, prone on elbow, on all fours, side lying to sitting, sitting, kneeling, half kneeling, standing and walking.

PROPER DOCUMENTATION is necessary of the entire event through- out the day. Infact the routine of the patient should be maintained in the register and the patient need to be reminded of various activities especially if the patient has memory problems. The patient may be given register with photo and names of various health professional visiting him so that each day’s program can be entered. This will benefit both the patient and his acquaintance to know regarding the activities given to the patient.

USE OF VESTIBULAR BALL while training the patient for crawling, bridging, sitting, balance helps in building the Proprioceptive stimulation and teaches proper control to the patient.

Each task has various subtasks which need to be mastered by the patient so that he learns the actual activity using normal movement combination and performs it with precision. Like for training the patient to get up from bed, he may be taught to do asymmetrical push up with the trunk in partial rotation, then lower leg patterns are incorporated and finally the whole task of get up from sidelying is practiced.

REPETITION ACTIVITIES is key like any other neurological disorders. Ambulation training should always be done in upright position training the patient in each and every phase of the gait cycle. If the patient’s balance is poor then assistance may be used.

FUNCTIONAL ELECTRICAL STIMULATION has been shown more effective than kinetic joint training in certain types of cases. The upper extremity also appeared to use specific synergies for hand use in different positions. Clients often can opens hand in out stretched arm position but will be unable to perform the same action when the elbow is flexed. Some patient with minimal functional deficit in th upeer limb may be given some assistive devices or support for the hand so that they can perform some basic activity like eating, combing, writing, etc. this technique helps the shoulder and other proximal structures to produce appropriate movement sequences for hand use but does not facilitate hand function. The treatment however does provide whole task practice even though some basic component of the function is substituted by other means.

REVERSING TASKS in some patients helps in developing increased control by modifying a task or synergy as well as making the muscle work both eccentrically and concentrically. For instance lowering a glass of water on the table may help the patient in getting th glass close to the mouth by improving motor control of biceps during eccentric contraction.
