My age is 29 I am suffering from ankolies spondylitis last 4-5 year where I treated it.
Ankylosing spondylitis Ankylosing spondylitis is a cause of back pain in adolescents and young adults. Ankylosing spondylitis is a form of chronic inflammation of the spine and the sacroiliac joints Chronic inflammation in these areas causes pain and stiffness in and around the spine, including the neck, middle back, lower back, and buttocks. Over time, chronic inflammation of the spine (spondylitis) can lead to a complete cementing together (fusion) of the vertebrae, a process referred to as ankylosis. Ankylosis causes loss of mobility of the spine. Pt treatment deep breathing for lung expansion and stretching exercises to improve spine and joint mobility. Are also advised to sleep on a firm mattress and avoid the use of a pillow in order to prevent spine curvature. Aerobic exercise is generally encouraged as it promotes full expansion of the breathing muscles and opens the airways of the lungs.

Hi , This is Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital. If it is only two day story you can try analgesics and muscle relaxants for 5-7 days. Also physical therapy in form of SWD/IFT and Laser may help. If your pain persists or increases kindly let me know. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

I am suffering several pain in legs when I have started running give me some tips.
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.

Back Pain:This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. •Standing hamstring stretch: Place the heel of your injured leg on a stool about 15 inches high. Keep your knee straight. Lean forward, bending at the hips until you feel a mild stretch in the back of your thigh. Make sure you do not roll your shoulders and bend at the waist when doing this or you will stretch your lower back instead of your leg. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Cat and camel: Get down on your hands and knees. Let your stomach sag, allowing your back to curve downward. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Then arch your back and hold for 5 seconds. Do 3 sets of 10. •Quadruped arm/leg raise: Get down on your hands and knees. Tighten your abdominal muscles to stiffen your spine. While keeping your abdominals tight, raise one arm and the opposite leg away from you. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Lower your arm and leg slowly and alternate sides. Do this 10 times on each side.•Pelvic tilt: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your abdominal muscles and push your lower back into the floor. Hold this position for 5 seconds, then relax. Do 3 sets of 10. •Partial curl: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your stomach muscles. Tuck your chin to your chest. With your hands stretched out in front of you, curl your upper body forward until your shoulders clear the floor. Hold this position for 3 seconds. Don't hold your breath. It helps to breathe out as you lift your shoulders up. Relax. Repeat 10 times. Build to 3 sets of 10. To challenge yourself, clasp your hands behind your head and keep your elbows out to the side. •Gluteal stretch: Lying on your back with both knees bent, rest the ankle of one leg over the knee of your other leg. Grasp the thigh of the bottom leg and pull that knee toward your chest. You will feel a stretch along the buttocks and possibly along the outside of your hip on the top leg. Hold this for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Extension exercise: Lie face down on the floor for 5 minutes. If this hurts too much, lie face down with a pillow under your stomach. This should relieve your leg or back pain. When you can lie on your stomach for 5 minutes without a pillow, then you can continue with the rest of this exercise.

I have knee pain from osteoarthritis. Am I allowed to walk?

This is the question most elderly patients from all walks of life ask me, be it a learned advocate or the local farmer.

Guess the answer? it is a big yes!

Knee osteoarthritis is the wear and tear that happens in the knee joint. At times we fail to understand that our knees also age along with us! so they may not be in a situation to behave the save way they behaved 20 years back, when you used cycle or trot a few miles to your school or college or the way you were comfortable squatting or kneeling whether it is fit sanitary purposes or religious causes

The fact is the knees have to be tamed well and should not be battered the same way as it was a few decades back!

Now coming to our original discussion, yes, you are allowed to walk!

But how do you do it when you are already suffering from pain?

You could rest your knees for a few days - usually a week, if you have severe pain. Your doctor could help you with some low dose pain killer tablets and ointments. On top of it all, the single best way to reduce your knee pain is lifestyle modifications!

What's the lifestyle modification we are talking about?

1) no climbing up or down stairs!

2) no sitting on and getting up from the floor!

3) no kneeling! and

4) a big no to squatting in the toilet!

Doctor, you must be kidding! how am I supposed to live without these?

Restrict the number of times you climb stairs.

Use a chair/sofa to sit! at unavoidable situations, use a stable support to sit on the floor and then to get up! do not place too much stress on your knees when you get up from the floor!

Absolutely no kneeling! for religious prayers, use a shall flat stool to sit and offer your prayers, but do not kneel!

Use a western (raised) toilet commode for sanitation! if you can't afford to change your present indian ones, use a wooden/plastic raised seat with a central opening temporarily until you can arrange a permanent raised one!

Should I spend time walking or not?

Yes you should!

Walking helps to rebuild the joint!

Walking strengthens the thigh and leg muscles!

Walking helps you lose weight!

Walking keeps your body active and prevents lethargy!

Last but not the least!

Walking pacifies the mind and prevents psychological problems!

So what are you waiting for?
Get out your shoes and burn your calories!
