Either way it needs to be taken care by first making a correct diagnosis. For knee pain at least start doing Quadriceps exercise and avoid squatting,kneeling,cross leg sitting. Dr Kamal Bachani

Try few things for your back pain: - Apply Ice and Heat Heating pads and cold packs can comfort tender trunks. Most doctors recommend using ice for the first 48 hours after an injury -- particularly if there is swelling — and then switching to heat. You can use whichever you find comforting as long as your skin is protected. - Limit Bed Rest Studies show that people with short-term low-back pain who rest feel more pain and have a harder time with daily tasks than those who stay active. -Keep Exercising Activity is often the best medicine for back pain. Simple exercises like walking can be very helpful. But remember to move in moderation, Stay away from strenuous activities like gardening and avoid whatever motion caused the pain in the first place. -Maintain Good Posture most people have poor posture when going about their daily activities, putting unnecessary strain on their backs. -Strengthen Your Core Most people with chronic back pain would benefit from stronger abdominal muscles. If the abdominals are weak, other areas must pick up the slack. When we strengthen the abdominals, it often reduces the strain on the lower back. - Improve Flexibility Too much tension and tightness can cause back pain. By increasing flexibility you need to put an equal load throughout the body from the feet all the way up to the head. -Sleep the Right Way The amount of rest you get is important, and so is the position you get it in. Sleeping in a bad position or on a mattress without support can cause back pain. Back sleepers should put pillows under their knees. Side sleepers should place pillows between their knees to keep their spine in a neutral position. Stomach sleeping causes the neck and head to twist and can put undue stress on the back. -Use Relaxation Techniques Research shows that practices such as meditation, deep breathing and yoga, which help put the mind at rest, can do wonders for the back. -See a Specialist Developing an individualized exercise plan is essential to managing chronic back pain. Some patients need more core strengthening while others benefit mainly from stretching and improving flexibility. Please consult a Orthopedic Physiotherapist for the right exercise plan. Best wishes.

3 Best Ways to Maintain Spinal Curves for Neck and Back Pain

BPTh/BPT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Noida
3 Best Ways to Maintain Spinal Curves for Neck and Back Pain

The c curve is a movement of the spine that strengthens the deep abdominal while stretching the muscles of the back. The c curve is a basic movement in pilates that is used in many different exercises.

The classic c curve is always initiated by the abdominal. Try a c curve by sitting up tall with your legs slightly bent in front of you. Imagine someone punching you in the lower stomach, and allow your spine to round by scooping in your deep abdominals. Your upper back, neck, and head may naturally follow this motion and round forward. So you initiate the c curve with the lower back (lumbar spine), then you add the upper back (thoracic spine), and finally you add the head and neck (cervical spine). Now your whole spine is making a capital c. This movement should feel like a big stretch for your whole spine and all the muscles that surround it.

Here's a little more specific information about the three natural curves of the spine and how they participate in the c curve movement.

Pilates lumbar c curve
The lumbar c curve movement is always initiated by your lower abdominals. This is the most difficult spinal movement to initiate because the lumbar spine has thick vertebrae that are meant to stabilize and hold the weight of the body. When you're standing or lying, the natural curve of your lumbar spine is in slight extension (like neutral spine), so when performing a lumbar c curve, you must pay much attention to pulling in your abdominals from the lowest part of your abdomen and attempting to reverse the natural curve of your low spine. You can accomplish this only by deep and strong low abdominal engagement.

Pilates thoracic c curve

101692. Image1
The upper back (thoracic region) naturally curves forward in a c shape. When performing a thoracic c curve, think of pulling your ribs in and allowing your shoulders to round forward. Doing so creates a nice stretch in the upper back.

The thoracic c curve naturally follows the lumbar c curve, but it is easy to do the thoracic c curve without actually starting from the lower back. In other words, it's easy for people to round their upper back because the back naturally rounds in that direction. Initiating the rounding from the lower back is more difficult and takes low abdominal work. The idea in pilates is generally to try to do more work from the belly and to move the spine starting from the lower back and then adding in the upper back afterward.

Pilates cervical c curve
The cervical c curve is a way to visualize the correct way to lift your head off the mat during an abdominal exercise. If you know the right way to lift your head up and understand proper neck alignment, you won't overstrain your neck when doing the abdominal-related exercises in pilates.

Lie on your back with your hands interlaced behind your head to support the neck. Lift your head off the mat by lengthening the back of the neck and by imagining that you're squeezing a tangerine under your chin to bring the head up (kind of like nodding your head yes as you lift it off the mat). Don't lead up with your chin. Once your head is off the mat, you have created your cervical c curve; the c shape begins at the top of your head and ends at the base of your sternum (or rib cage). You must lift your head high enough to form the shape of the c. Think of your abdominal muscles lifting up the weight of the head, not the neck muscles. If you're very tight in your neck or very weak in your tummy, you may not be able to make a complete c shape. But if you keep doing the work, you will!

I am suffering from cervical spondylitis. My lordosis is lost in report please sugest.

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Heat is an effective mean of reducing and relieving pain in cervical spondylosis. You can use hot packs at home. Some exercises like static contractions and strengthening exercises are needs to be done. Isometric contractions of the cervical muscles improve the muscle endurance and tone as the contractions improve the blood supply thereby the nutrition to the muscle is increased and hence muscle strengthening is done. Please see a physiotherapist for these exercises. You may need traction and soft tissue techniques for the management of cs. Postural awareness is very important. As the condition progresses, the abnormality of posture also increases, thus from the initial stage itself, postural awareness through proper advice and education should be planned and initiated by the physiotherapist. Best wishes.

Thigh pain can be caused by a very wide variety of conditions.Thigh pain caused by a minor muscle strain or contusion may be controlled with home treatments, such as rest, ice, elevation of the leg, and pain relievers. In some cases, thigh pain may be caused by a serious or life-threatening condition, such as deep vein thrombosis, bone fracture, or hip dislocation. Seek immediate medical care if you have difficulty moving the leg or walking, deformity of the knee, thigh or hip,severe pain; sudden swelling or color changes in the thigh.

For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise. Hamstring stretching.

Hi lybrate-user, Usually in this age back pain appears due to weakness of par-spinal (back) muscles. Of course, the solution is to strengthen the concerned muscles, but it should be without exertion. Weakness of the muscle will lead to spasm and pressure to the tissues involved which may develop further tissue damages. Wrong posture is the major cause for continuous injury. Take steps to correct it. Dehydration will cause muscle spasm- so drink 2.5 litres liquid daily. Cold exposure to be avoided to protect muscle tone. Constipation and distended abdomen will give extra pressure to back muscles. Vitamine D 3 helps in absorption of calcium to strengthen bones and other tissues. Sun light is source of Vit. D. Further Ayurvedic treatments are available for support. Navarakizhi, Pizhichil and Vasthy may be suggested accordingl for a long term solution. Exercises for back muscles may be practiced with consultation with physio or Ayurveda doctor. Resting position: on a plain firm and flat surface, preferred on a wooden surface. EXERCISES: 1) Lift the leg without folding knee- 5 each alternatively 2) Fold the knee towards chest alternatively 5 each 3) On the shoulder position, fold the knee towards chest 5 each one after the other leg on both sides. 4) On the stomach position, lift opposite limbs together, alternatively 5 each.

My heel is paining very badly because of spur grow what should I do now can not stand half an hour.

My heel is paining very badly because of spur grow what should I do now can not stand half an hour.
Calcaneal spur is very common heel pain complain that I am observing in my daily practice. And do understand how stabbing pain is. Please follow some precautions and treatment plan to get rid of it. If possible please visit any nearby physio and start taking our physio modalities like ust, laser and faradism which has very good results in such pain. In the meantime please follow the precautions and care at home to decrease pain level. 1) give rest to your foot. 2) avoid bare foot walking. 3) avoid heel walking which normally people do when get up early in morning. 4) wear proper arch support shoes which should have heel cups or cushion to the heel in order to reduce direct pressure. 5) avoid prolong standing. 6) avoid standing while putting direct pressure on foot like one leg standing, jumping etc. 7) take healthy diet to keep you fit. 8) drink plenty of water in a day. Care at home: one of the best result in calcaneal spur is because of contrast bath and ultrasonic therapy. At home you can take hot and cold fermentation apply ice for 3 min and then hot for 2 min. There is very good result of both applications together. After 3 days of taking contrast therapy you can make the ice and hot ratio as 1: 1 mean one min cold and then one min hot. Start with hot pack and ends with cold. Take it for 15-18 min thrice a day for early recovery. Please make sure it should not be too hot or too cold. 2) slightly massage using your 2 fingers over the painful area. 3) exercises like toe dorsi/plantar flexion, calf stretching, place a rubber ball under your foot and roll that slightly which strengthen your plantar fasica. If pain is very severe then wear plantar fascia strap/band while walking. For any doubts please contact. Regards.

I had a slip inside the house and my left toe was fractured along with sprain in the whole left feet and heel just one and half years back. I am treated by ortho doctor at Jayanagar ortho. Hospital with plaster for five weeks. After removing the plaster, left feet remained black with swelling and for nearly one year same thing continued. I am having diabetic and hypertension and taking tablets regularly. I was in a teaching profession and used stand for long hours and as such I developed arthritis and added to it the diabetes and bp have caused numbness in my feet, but it is more in my left leg foot after the fracture and post treatment. Still I am having pain in my heel and find paining after standing for long, but subside while walking. The ortho doctor after treatment took xray and told me the fracture is cleared completely. Pl advice me what is the remedy for my ortho problems.

I don't understand why a plaster (I assume Plaster of Paris. POP) was applied for a fracture of the toe. Usually, a closed (meaning the skin hasn't been breached) fracture of the toe, if undisplaced, is treated by a simple "Buddy strapping" Here, we just apply an adhesive plaster (NOT Plaster of Paris) to the affected toe along with its neighbour. We usually DON'T apply POP. I think the doctor applied POP for the sprain, to give it some rest. Nonetheless, I now recommend you meet a Diabetic Foot Surgeon immediately.
