I am suffering from an ankle sprain for the past few years. It was caused when my ankle hit the ground on impact. I at times have difficulty to walk on rugged surfaces which in turn causes more pain. How di I cure this ankle sprain.
I have a pain sensation in the back when I wake up in the morning. I had a treatment of spondylosis long back but got cured. I am 5'7" by height weighing 76 kgs. Your opinion needed.
Sir I want to tell my back is full of pain in 2 or 3 working days I do not work properly I am very lazy and my hand and leg do not work properly so please give me a advice.
She has knee pain since very long time. And had many treatments which helped nothing in pain. Still don't have any improvement.
Optimal mobility of the wrist joint is key to having good hand dexterity. Writing and unscrewing a lid are two activities we often take for granted that require flexibility in the wrist. This is a quick and easy stretch for any time you wrist feels tight or tired.
1.Bend your right wrist downward,pointing your fingers toward the floor.Press your left palm against the outside of your right hand. Use your left hand to gently press your right hand down until you feel the tension.
2.Repeat this on the opposite side by bending your left wrist down toward the floor and pressing your right palm against the outside your left hand. Use your right hand to gently press your left hand down until you feel the tension.
Most activities require a great deal of wrist flexion, but a lot less extension. This simple stretch improves this often neglected range of motion and can help prevent painful injuries in the future.
1. Stand straight with your feet shoulder width apart and your shoulders back.Press your palms together in the middle of your chest. Your forearms should be parallel to the floor with elbows out to the side and fingers pointing straight up.
2.Keeping your elbows out to the side and your palms together, rotate your hands away from your body and then downward to complete the stretch. Only rotate your wrists as far as is comfortable and hold for 10 to 15 seconds to complete the stretch. Repeat this movement 5 times.
Joint Replacement Surgery is a procedure where the damaged surface of the advanced arthritic joints are removed and replaced by artificial joints, such as metallic, plastic and ceramic joints.
These surfaces closely replicate the original anatomy.
When do you need a knee replacement?
When you suffer from severe pain or deformity in the joint (knee in this case), the pain or stiffness and deformity makes it difficult to perform simple tasks. Severe grade IV osteoarthritic knees of people over 50 years when have pain, swelling and deformity fail to respond to medicines, physiotherapy, injections and rest.
Aim of the surgery: Correct the deformity: Relieve the pain and give near full movements almost immediately after the procedure. Details including techniques and safety, it is a safe, rewarding surgery with a success rate of as high as 99.5% when done by an able and experienced professional.
Anaesthesia: Usually it is the spinal cord epidural where one is rendered numb for 3 to 4 hours waist down. Sometimes a general anaesthesia is given. A 4 to 5 inches cut is made in front of the knee and all the damaged cartilages, bones, loose bodies are removed from the lower end of the thigh, upper end of the tibia (usually of few millimetres) and the surface re-crafted to match the size and shape of the artificial joint (it is usually imported). They are fixed with bone cement. The ligaments and muscles are reattached and the parts closed.
Recovery: Stand up and walk a few steps with a walker the day after the procedure i.e. in 24 hours. Physiotherapy in hospital for 5 to 7 days and/or walking. progressively longer walks and exercises over the following 15 days. Stitches are removed in 15 days. The patient can return back to normal activity in 4 to 8 weeks the surgery.
Activities: Normal walks of 3 to 5 km per day Climbing stairs, cycling, swimming, and driving can be performed with the new implant(s) now.
Avoid: Squatting/kneeling Prohibited: contact sports like football, cricket, tennis; jumping; adventure sports Longevity of joints: 15-35 years depending on the materials used.
