Sir, My Mother is of 45 year's old. And she often says that she has a pain on her knees. She can not walk for a longer time. If she sits for a longer time than she could not stand immediately. Sir please give a proper solution to it. As now I am an employe. So from my 1st salary I want to do something good to my parents. Of which they would be proud of.

She is probably having arthritis of knee. If problem is severe, then get her standing xrays of knee done. Avoid sitting cross legged, avoid squatting position, avoid climbing stairs.

I have knee pain when I was sitting or standing it was paining very much I was suffering with sever pain.

I have knee pain when I was sitting or standing it was paining very much I was suffering with sever pain.
Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- 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. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

One has to induce by sleep inducing agents like make the room sound proof switched off the lights and electronic gadgets like tv, computer betc do not eat heavy dinner do not have water immediately after food at least for half to one hour have plenty of water by mouth. Try to read some book it will help go for morning walk followed by free hand exercises regularly. It will help. To get proper sleep an adult individual should have 6 to 8 hours sleep daily.

I'm suffering from mild joint pain specially in small joints in fingers. RA factor is positive. Kindly advice.

I'm suffering from mild joint pain specially in small joints in fingers. RA factor is positive. Kindly advice.
It is called as Rheumatic arthritis. If your pain is more in the distal joints, ie. In the upper limbs if the pain is present in the fingers/wrist and in the lower limbs it the pain is present in the toes/ ankle, then we shall definitely say it is Rheumatic arthritis. Feel warm and that will make the joints become firm. Hot water fermentation will help And also immerse the distal joints in the hot water tub which will help you to reduce the pain. Consult the near by physiotherapy clinic and also consult a general physician to check with your ESR levels to check whether you have inflammation. Physiotherapy management: UST can be done and SWD or IRR also can be done.

Keep Your Spine Safe - Spinal Cord Injury Has Lot Many Complications

Keep Your Spine Safe - Spinal Cord Injury Has Lot Many Complications

SPINAL CORD INJURY

Mechanism of the injury that can cause damage to the vertebrae with a resultant damage to the cord is usually a hyper flexion with rotation is less likely to cause damage to the cord.Injuries to the spinal cord can be caused by:

  1. Fracture or fracture  with dislocation  
  2. Sports injuries 
  3. Industrial injuries 
  4. Stab injury 
  5. Gunshot injuries 
  6. Surgical procedures:     surgeries done in and around the spinal cord can cause damage to it.Fracture or fracture dislocation can be caused either due to collision of a heavy object over the head or directly over the spine.

COMPLICATION OF SPINAL CORD INJURIES 

Pressure sores: In case of chronic illness with spinal cord injury, the patient is bed-ridden for a long time. If proper care is not taken patient develops pressure sores which becomes a major complication if infected.

Tightness and contractures: because of inability of the patient to move the lower limbs, patients lower limbs are positioned under the effect of gravity or under the influence of spasticity. The patient suffers from tightness, contractures and loss of ROM. If these are not treated in time it will lead to fixed mal   alignment of joints which eventually will lead to deformity.

Osteoporosis: without adequate weight bearing imposed on the lower limb bones more and more calcium is released from bones which causes osteoporotic and fragile bones that is prone to have fractures even with trivial trauma.

Urinary Tract infection and urinary calculi: due to urinary retention in the spinal cord injury patient there is growth of bacteria primarily due to the presence of an indwelling catheter which acts as a main source of entrance for the bacteria.

Pain syndrome: the source of pain can be traumatic, spinal cord pain and musculoskeletal.

PHYSIOTHERAPY MANAGEMENT

The aims of the physiotherapy management consist of:

  • Prevention of all   secondary complications as a result of being bedridden. 
  • Restoration of   functional independency to the maximum possible limit. 
  • Psychological  counseling. 
  • Social and vocational  rehabilitation.
  • Family education   
  • Home adaptation.

Dear lybrate-user ji, namaskar, yes. Long hour sitting is known to cause postural backache. The solution is to avoid it. But whenever possible after 1 or 2 hrs. You should do forward-backward and side bending of the back as well as turning and twisting for 5-10 times. It takes 2-3 minutes only. Also you should learn spine exercises at a physiotherapy center and do them regularly in the morning for 15-20 minutes. You may also use a ls belt while working. When ever you have pain. Do hot fomentation and apply any gel / balm and take ultracet tab. Sos (as and if required) for pain killing. You will certainly settle with regular exercises. Take care.
