Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually pain at calf/leg region can be due to many reasons, commonly it is muscular in nature but it can also be due to tendons, nerves, blood vessels etc. Also pain can be associated with off and on stiffness. My advise to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - ice packs application intensively with elevation of your limbs at night - take a short course of anti-inflammatory medication as per your body's suitability - stop your physical activity till pain completely subsides - intensive physical therapy, training and proper muscle conditioning once pain has subsided - slow resumption of physical activities with proper pre activity warm up and stretching of muscles and short increments in duration of physical activity each day as per pain tolerance. - we will get some blood tests for you to be done preferable empty stomach - cbc, esr, crp, serum vitamin d and serum potassium levels, thyroid profile once you have all these reports then you can contact me as I can advise you for proper supplementation do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Why Is Physiotherapy A Key To The Treatment Of Arthritis?

Why Is Physiotherapy A Key To The Treatment Of Arthritis?

There are over 200 types of arthritis that are known to medical science. While some are easy to manage, some can be deadly if proper care is not taken on time. The common factor of any arthritis, however, is the physical pain in the joints and muscles.

How Does Physiotherapy Help?

It is known that some forms of exercise go a long way in managing the symptoms of arthritis. Physiotherapy focuses on the right form of exercise that helps in relieving pain. Furthermore, they help to improve the movement of the joint, the walking posture and muscle strengthening. Based on the condition and severity of the pain, a physiotherapist might recommend free hand exercise or workout sessions in a swimming pool.

What is the Role of a Physiotherapist?

Apart from helping in managing pain, a physiotherapist’s job includes the following:

  1. To improve the flexibility, balance and coordination of the body in order to achieve the maximum physical function.

  2. Recommend appropriate exercise to fix improper posture that may be causing the pain.

  3. Assist in using devices such as canes and walkers.

  4. Recommend various other treatment options such as thermal therapy, shoe inserts, braces and splints in order to relieve the pain.

  5. Recommend changes in the environment such as using of cushion, ergonomic chairs etc.

Exercise:

A physiotherapist recommends various exercises in order to relieve the pain. They start with graded exercises. These start slowly and quantify in an incremental manner. Graded exercises help to strengthen the bone and increase the fitness of an arthritis patient. It also helps the body secrete a hormone known as endorphins which help to manage the pain.

Strengthening and Stretching:

Stretching and strengthening are basic starters that a physiotherapist recommends. After assessing the strength of the muscle, a physiotherapist advises on the techniques and of various stretching and strengthening exercises. Stretching helps to relax the muscle and free up any cramps in the body. Strengthening, on the other hand, helps the bone to become more flexible and reduces the pain.

Avoiding Arthritis Pain:

  1. It is important to be active. Keeping the muscles strong and moving the muscles is a key to get relief from the pain.

  2. Maintain a healthy diet in order to ensure the right BMI for your body. Being overweight or obese can exert added pressure on the bone resulting in arthritis pain.

  3. Maintain good body posture, especially walking and sitting posture. Good posture helps in ensuring normal breathing and proper digestion.

  4. Regularly practice the exercises recommended by the physiotherapist.

  5. Using of cooling packs and thermal treatment on the joints often helps to relieve the pain.

Physiotherapy and diet should be combined because if you only treat your back and put on more weight than your body will not respond to physiotherapy. Take some professional help and get your diet planned.

Hi lybrate-user if you don't want to go for knee transplant operation then the best way to maintain a good lifestyle and your joint mobility is to go for Intensive Physiotherapy. This is the best conservative management where you can work on joint mobility and in building your muscle strength. Body weight is taken by muscles and bones if there is any degenerative changes in the joints then one should focus on muscle strengthening where you build up your muscles to give support to the degenerative joint and you can maintain a good lifestyle.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards
