I am 23 years old. I am suffering with spinal cord injury (c4 fracture) since 2010 now I almost recovered but my left foot is dropped and knee hyperextension. Please help me what I do?

Master of Physiotherapy
Physiotherapist, Guwahati
Hi lybrate-user thank you for giving me an opportunity to answer your question. Weak hamstrings are usually the reasons when it comes to knee hyperextension, however a weak gastrocnemius (calf) can be a big factor too since it passes over the knee joint as well. Considering the foot drop you have I would say the calf is probably a bigger issue than your hamstrings. If your quadriceps is weak on that side you would have to lock out your knee by hyperextending it. Do strengthening exercises for hyperextended knee. Eg. Straight leg raise. Quarter squats, forward stepups etc exercises. Foot drop can wear ankle foot orthotics for some time and do electrical stimulation to strengthen those muscles. Regards.

Paralysis: Symptoms and Treatment

Paralysis: Symptoms and Treatment

Paralysis can be concluded as the state when the muscles lose functioning in any part of the body. Any kind of disruption in our nerve system can be responsible enough to cause paralysis. Our central nervous system and peripheral nervous system communicate and control our senses of movement. But interruption in nerve impulses can cause weakness in muscles which leads to muscle paralysis.

Symptoms
A paralysed patient will encounter symptoms like:

  1. Decreasing the motor power
  2. Decreasing vasomotor control
  3. Loss of sensation
  4. Decreasing bowel and bladder control
  5. Losing the ability of sexual function.

When it comes to treating a paralysis patient, physiotherapy is proven to be the best remedy. Physiotherapy has thoroughly helped patients with paralysis in getting to feel confident and independent. Physiotherapy includes various exercises and techniques which are developed with time in order to provide a complete rehabilitation to the patients.

Types of paralysis:
There are mainly four types of paralysis

  1. Monoplegia: when one limb gets paralysed
  2. Hemiplegia: when arm and leg of a single side get paralysed
  3. Paraplegia: when legs get paralysed
  4. Quadriplegia: when both sides get paralysed

Treating paralysis with physiotherapy

  1. Physiotherapy is advised to patients with any type of paralysis. It should be started soon in order to improve blood circulation in the muscles. It also helps in relaxing the stiff muscles. This treatment improves the overall health condition of the patient.
  2. Physiotherapy is also responsible for reducing any kind of swelling which takes place due to external brain injury.
  3. Physiotherapy is helpful in making the patient stable and independent.
  4. It also helps in maintaining the blood pressure.
  5. It helps to improve the respiratory system.
  6. Physiotherapy maintains the affected muscles and nerves. It provides strength to the affected muscles and works to prevent the limbs from getting deformed.
  7. One major symptom of paralysis is a loss of bladder and bowel function. Physiotherapy helps in managing the paralysed bowel and bladder.
  8. Physiotherapy involves different techniques which can be learnt from a physiotherapist in order to transfer a paralysed patient.
  9. Othorsis, canes, braces, splints are the equipment that are advised to the patient by a professional physiotherapist.
  10. Physiotherapy helps in resolving problems such as anxiety, anger, depression, denial which takes place after post-paralysis mental trauma.
  11. Physiotherapist provides safeguarding tips to the patient and his or her family in order to avoid accidents.
  12. Physiotherapy has a big role in creating the motivation in patient's mind.

These are the benefits of physiotherapy which help the paralyzed limbs getting stronger and better. But it is always advised to be done under a professional physiotherapist.

Symptoms can vary from mild to severe. They may include muscle twitching, weakness, or total loss of the ability to move one side of the face. Other symptoms include drooping of the eyelid, a change in taste, pain around the ear, and increased sensitivity to sound.

1. Facial paralysis on one side. 
2. Loss of blinking control on the affected side
3. Drooping of the mouth to the affected side
4. Altered sense of taste
5. Slurred speech
6. Drooling (difficulty in eating and drinking) 
7. Pain in or behind the ear
8. Sound hypersensitivity on the affected side

5 Important Tips to Recover From Cold and Flu

MBBS, MD - Pulmonary Medicine
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
5 Important Tips to Recover From Cold and Flu

1. Stay home, rest and take plenty of fluids

Take plenty of rest at home which will give your body time to heal. Water, juices and comforting warm beverages will help prevent dehydration and turn thick viscid phlegm to watery mucus which can be easily coughed out.

2. Inhale steam

Steam inhalation: warm humidified air will ease the congestion in your nose and lungs. 

It will help in thinning out the mucus and make breathing better. Alternatively, you can sit in the bathroom with the shower running hot water till the bathroom is filled with moist steam. 

3. Humidifier

Use humidifier or vaporizer to moist the dry air in your house/room. It will help in quicker recovery from flu.

4. Over-the-counter medicines for a cough, aches and fever

You can try over-the-counter medicines such as paracetamol, nasal decongestants and cough syrups after consulting with your local doctor. Never give aspirin to people younger than 19 years unless prescribed by a doctor. Lozenges will help to soothe the throat. Avoid taking antibiotics as flu is a viral infection and not bacterial unless prescribed by a doctor. 

5. Saline solutions

Use saline nasal sprays or drops to unblock the nose. Put some drops or spray in the nose and gently blow the mucus and saline out. Gargles with a warm saline solution will sooth down the throat and help to clear the infection.

These measures will help ease your suffering and can result in a quicker recovery. Take appropriate precautions to prevent the spreading of flu, like covering of mouth while coughing, nose while sneezing especially when near the children. 

Consult a Pulmonologist (Chest physician) urgently if you experience breathlessness, wheezing, troublesome cough, high fever, hoarseness of voice, vomiting or other worsening symptoms.

You need to start speech therapy as soon as possible for good results. This is the spontaneous recovery period so speech therapy during this time will help even more. Oral motor exercises needs to be done in case of Dysarthria or Oral Apraxiaand language therapy should be given in case of Aphasia.

Which exercise is good for a patient who recovered from a minor paralysis stroke on right leg thumb finger. What precautions should be taken so it will not repeat.

Master of Physiotherapy
Physiotherapist, Guwahati
Hi, By curing the spasticity in your foot, your toes will finally relax – permanently. And the only way to cure spasticity is to retrain your brain to control the spastic muscles. This can be achieved through repetitious rehab exercises. Eg toe taps exercise prescription, floor grips etc etc. For free rehab exercise guides  get a text, audio or video consultation. Regards.
