Hi, I am a regular runner and I make sure 1 hour of my day is spend outdoor and active. I jo 3 km daily, toe jogging. In July I got a sprain and since then I am staying away from jog or any physical activity that pressure my sprained ankle, rigt leg. Can I do household chores, will it cause more pressure on my ankle. How long will it take to heal. My doctor examined and said it might be a muscle tear. What could I do to recover faster. Please advice. Female, 27.

Good to know that you have an active routine. I wonder why you are doing 'Toe jogging' It does not help at all. Just run naturally. Your injury will heal in 3-4 weeks. Give it rest. Don't worry about labels like 'muscle tear' etc. Everything will heal. You don't have to stop completely, but your pain will indicate where to stop. Take extra Calcium and Vit D. Take more milk and milk products. Women are prone to Osteoporosis, though you are still young for that. However its better to take precautions. You can consult a Homeopath. They have good meds for such injuries. Take care and you will be back on the track soon.

My mom's having intense pain in her knees at regular intervals due to arthritis! what should we do (except the replacement) to keep her knees in a gopd condition? Please Suggest the best remedies and the prevention. Thanks in advance!

Knee surgery-total knee replacement (tkr) surgery is quite safe & gives uniformly good results, if done in a well equipped center. We have such centers in delhi with competent joint replacement surgeons. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. Physiotherapy along with medicines will help. Do knee exercises. It may have to be further investigated rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with a soft bedding on it. Any way take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days she will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Don't ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Probably a disl prolapse instead which is giving pressure symptoms (pain radiation to leg) your both screning tests are negative and you have not being infected by tubercular bacterism so better think otherwise and consult an orthopedic surgeon.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. These symptoms are called as paresthesias and usually are due to involvement of a nerve somewhere along the course from the lower back (spine) region to leg, or rarely these kind of symptoms can be due to vascular involvement. So in brief I would like you to be examined by a neurophysician especially if there is no previous h/o lower back pain etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Even I have gone through the caesarian section recently, this back pain is genuine because of general anaesthesia is given through injection on lumbar vertebra. Another reason for backache is, we carry heavy weight during pregnancy this will lead to increase lumbar lordosis (spine curve. Due to this our back muscles tired causes back pain. No now come to the exercise part: *do gentle ankle toe movements and stretchings. *do static abdominal exercises (breath in then contract abs muscles-hold-relax) *knee to chest exercise: lying down on your bed or floor, bend your one leg knee towards your chest and breath out. Reposition your knee, now repeat this with another leg for at least 15-20 times. For further exercises and advice contact me personally. Thank you.
