Hamstring Stretch Lie on your back with your left leg flat on the floor. Loop a towel or rope around your right foot and pull your leg as far as comfortable toward your chest, while keeping a slight bend at the knee. Keep your back pressed to the floor throughout the stretch. Hold for 10 to 30 seconds and then release. Repeat 3 or 4 times with each leg. Do this stretch 5 or 6 times a week. Short-Arc Knee Extensions In the same starting position as the straight-leg raises, put a ball (about the size of a basketball) under your left knee so that your leg is bent. Slowly straighten your leg. Hold, then slowly lower. Repeat with your right leg. Exercises To Avoid A few of the following exercises can be done safely if you have chronic knee problems; they're on this list because they're more likely to be done improperly. The exercises above are safer, while still giving you similar results. •Full-arc knee extensions •Lunges •Deep squats •Hurdler's stretches.

Its not serious. Sometimes this happens due to pulled nerves. Do not bend forward. Avoid lifting weight. Avoid those activities which cause pain. If this happens again, then consult again.

Hello , there are wonderful exercises which will help your symptoms in gradually bringing down. Just medication is not enough as your symptoms show that probably there could be some tear which is irritating your nerve which supplies the the leg. So do go to a physiotherapist nearby they will help you. Dr. Avanthiprabhakar

Weak eyesight has multiple factors associated with it. To enumerate a few: (1) refractive error- change of the power of glasses is the commonest cause of weak eyesight. In fact, if you have not used glasses previously, it might be possible that you might need to use them now. (2) age related changes in the lens of the eye-this is generally known as cataract. This is present in varying proportions in a majority of population above 55 years. This means that some degree of cataract is usually found in the age group over 55 years. (3) retina problem-different degenerations of the retina usually lead to weakening of the eyesight. The degeneration may be caused due to progressive age. It may also occur due to a high minus number of the eye (myopia). (4) cornea related problem- cornea is the anterior (front) part of the eye. Certain issues with the cornea may cause weakening of the eyesight. Thus, it would be a good idea to consult an eye specialist in person and get your eyes evaluated for the cause of weakening eyesight.

Most shoulder problems fall into four major categories: Tendon inflammation (bursitis or tendinitis) or tendon tear Instability Arthritis Fracture (broken bone) Other much less common causes of shoulder pain are tumors, infection, and nerve-related problems. Treatment generally involves rest, altering your activities, and physical therapy to help you improve shoulder strength and flexibility. Common sense solutions such as avoiding overexertion or overdoing activities in which you normally do not participate can help to prevent shoulder pain. Remedies... Cold Compress..... The simplest yet most effective tip in the list of home remedies for shoulder pain is cold compress as it can provide you with relief almost instantly. The cold will be able to help you numb the affected area, thus alleviate pain and inflammation..... Take some ice cubes into a bag of plastic and have the bag wrapped in a towel. Apply the pack directly onto the affected area for about 15 minutes. Perform couples of time every day in several days. Hot Compress.......... Similar to cold compress, it is also an extremely effective tip from the list of home remedies for shoulder pain which can bring you instant relief from swelling, inflammation and pain. It is recommended to use hot compress after the injury has occurred for 48 hours. This compress is also effective at easing the pain from muscles which are stretched out.Take a hot bag and fill it with hot water then apply directly onto the shoulder for about 15 minutes in a comfortable lying position. Perform couples of time per day. Also you can use the shower to run some slightly hot water over the shoulder for about 10 minutes. Maintain a still standing position during this time. Additionally, you might enjoy some hot shower twice every day. COMPRESSION.. You can use some kinds of elastic bandage or even a warm wrap which is easily found at the market. Have your shoulder wrapped for couples of day until the swelling and pain are subsided. Additionally, you should keep the shoulder elevated using the pillow in order to improve the healing. Note: Do not wrap excessively tight as it might lead to inefficiency in circulation and make the condition worse. Take 2 cups of Epsom salt into a warm bath and dissolve. Soak your whole body including the shoulder under the water for at least 20 minutes. Perform 3 times per week Take some oil and warm it up then apply directly onto the shoulder. Have the muscles at the shoulder squeezed and pressure gently in order to alleviate pain as well as encourage flow of blood. After massaging for 10 minutes, take a warm towel to apply onto the shoulder for maximized effect. Perform couples of time every day. Avoid massaging the affected area in case it incurs pain. Take 2 cups of vinegar into a warm bath. Soak your body including the shoulder under the water for at least 20 minutes. Perform once every day in couples of day. Also you can consume 1 tablespoon of vinegar mixed in warm water with some honey for twice every day in 1 week. The use of blackstrap molasses to reduce shoulder pain has been tested for many years. Even though there has not been a final conclusion yet, it is highly possible that its magnesium content is responsible for its benefits. You will speed up shoulder pain treatments at home very well. Another way to maximize the results for bruished shoulder is to use molasses with apple cider vinegar. How to do: You would need molasses (1/4 cup), apple cider vinegar (half a cup), honey (half a cup) and ground ginger (1 teaspoon). Mix all of them in water Consume it regularly every day USE NO PAIN OIL

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your complaints have started from back region and gradually have gone to front and now your shoulder area. My advise is to: - start with gentle anti-inflammatory medication for 5-7 days - local analgesic spray can be used for pain relief as well - hot packs should be done at home 3-4 times in a day, you can also start with ice packs for 3-4 days initially - physical therapy initialy under supervision of a physiotherapist and modalities initially. Let me know in about a week to 10 days time whether you are improving or not, otherwise we will see what investigation needs to be done in your case. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
