At first we have to assess which ligaments were torn by doing some simple physical testings. Then if you have done MRI from that we know the grade of INJURY. If the grade is 1 or 2 it can be managed by physiotherapy Rehabilitation programs the period may varies from 4 to 6 months. But if grade 3 tear then go for surgery after surgery 6 month of Rehabilitation protocol to be followed to get back into normal life.

It may be muscle spasm. Take rest for couple of days. Use firm bed. Do not bend forward. Use hot bags. If pain still persists, you will need some medicines and physiotherapy modalities to relieve pain.

I am a 69 years old man suffering from joint pains. Specially lower back lumber is bothering one. About 20 years back I was advised surgery of spine since my MRI scan had shown abnormality at L 3 -4-5. After very ten or fifteen yards I had to rest for a while and move again. I refused surgery since doctors did not guarantee 100% recovery . I tried every alternate treatment available including physiotherapy many a times. All these years I did feel discomfort but could manage my life reasonably well. I do fallow many do's and don'ts advised by orthopedic doctors. Lately it's not only my lumber but knee, and shoulder have also been bothering me . Climbing steps to even 2nd floor I am not comfortable . I even get breathless . About a month back it appeared 20 years back situation is going to bother me again but some how of its own it improved and it's much better now. Please advise. I am a retired man with a meager source of income. Please NOTE I am with a solitary kidney. I did take medicine for gaout and BP for some time. Now I ain't taking any medicine. My BP reading normally is found to be around 90/140. God bless you.

Surgery should be the final resort only after all the other non invasive treatments have failed. I hope that the physiotherapy treatment that you have taken included exercise for back extensor strengthening, postural correction and use of braces. Due to the solo kidney working out and age factor the stress on the kidney to retain calcium and other minerals is doubled. Your blood pressure too is of concern. A fresh healthy vegetarian diet to compensate for the allopathy medicine and for your kidney along with isometric exercises for all the joints should manage the situation well for you.

Epidural Steroid Injections - Relief For Sciatica Patients!

Epidural Steroid Injections - Relief For Sciatica Patients!

Sciatica is characterized by an excruciating pain that stems as a result of irritation or 'pinching' of the sciatic nerve. This comprises leg pain and body ache that often makes sitting, standing or movement of any sort, a painful endeavor. While sciatica may grow progressively over a period of time, it can in fact occur suddenly as well.

Burning sensations in the limbs, a persistent feeling of numbness or weakness, and pain in the lower back area are among the most recurrent symptoms of sciatic nerve pain. Depending on the portion of the sciatic nerve that is affected, the pain can either be confined to the lower hip area or even extend till the toes.

While sciatica may be irregular and infrequent for some people, others might be clinically diagnosed with the condition. In both the cases, seeking adequate measures to counter the pain must not be postponed at any price. As a patient, one might find the benefits of epidural steroid injections to be many. Along with alleviating the pain for a long while, it can often delay the need for surgery and at times, chalk it off altogether.

WHY OPT FOR EPIDURAL STEROID INJECTIONS?

Despite the fact that the effect of epidural steroid injections last only temporarily, there is substantial evidence of its efficacy in delivering a pain-free experience when in the system.  The injected steroid targets the epidural space of the spinal area and the steroids wash out the mediators which might cause inflammation, thus easing the pain. The steroids then act as agents to slow the responsiveness of the immune system so that they doesn't react to the inflammatory agents linked with nerve or tissue damage. As a result, the pain that is generated due to the irritation of the surrounding nerves is significantly eased down.

HOW IS THE POSSIBILITY OF SURGERY RULED OUT?

Epidural Steroid Injections are a safe, simple, and an efficient non-surgical treatment option that works on the concept of interventional pain management and provides extreme relief from persistent and chronic pain. The injection course generally comprises of three sessions over a period of few weeks and the total number of injections required depends entirely on the present condition of the patient. If you happen to experience no pain after the first few sittings, the course may be discontinued. The injections have the potential to improve health and overall quality of life, while the requirement for painkillers will be substantially decreased and in the process, the need for surgery might be potentially avoided.

Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Stiffness might have developed due to weakness of the ligaments & inflammed cartilage. Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping ball underneath the knee and keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee.
