Hello, if its osteoarthritis of knee, doctors recommend conservative treatment like exercises before surgery. Surgery is the last resort. If its torn ligaments or meniscus needs orthopedic consultation on the degree of tear that determines the need for surgery.

Leg exercise kijiye daily I hope you will fit and fine….Basic Leg Exercises The following Basic Leg Exercises should generally be performed 1 - 3 times per week provided they do not cause or increase pain. Ideally they should not be performed on consecutive days, to allow muscle recovery. As your strength improves, the exercises can be progressed by gradually increasing the repetitions, number of sets or resistance of the leg exercises provided they do not cause or increase pain. Swiss Ball Squats Begin this leg exercise in standing with your feet shoulder width apart, your feet facing forwards and a Swiss Ball placed between a wall and your back (figure 1). Slowly perform a squat, keeping your back straight. Your knees should be in line with your middle toes and should not move forward past your toes. Then slowly return to the starting position maintaining good posture throughout the exercise. Perform 1 - 3 sets of 10 repetitions provided the exercise is pain free Lunges Begin this leg exercise standing with your back straight in the position demonstrated (figure 2). Slowly lower your body until your front knee is at a right angle. Keep your front knee in line with your middle toe and your feet facing forward. Then slowly return to the starting position maintaining good posture throughout the exercise. Perform 1 - 3 sets of 10 repetitions provided the exercise is pain free Hip Abduction Sidelying Begin this leg exercise lying on your side in the position demonstrated (figure 3). Keeping your back and knee straight and foot facing forwards, slowly take your leg upwards tightening the muscles at the side of your thigh / hip (abductors). Hold for 2 seconds and then return to the starting position. Perform 1 – 3 sets of 10 repetitions on each leg provided the exercise is pain free. This exercise can be progressed by adding an ankle weight to your ankle for increased resistance.

I am suffering from shoulder pain and back pain since last year, what can do? For this.

I am suffering from shoulder pain and back pain since last year, what can do? For this.
You can do hot water fermentation for shoulder / you can do ice therapy which will reduce the pain. This is due to the improper posture as while sitting in front of the computer it leads to neck pain and thereby it leads to shoulder pain. We suggest neck mobilization exercises that would reduce the stress falling on the shoulder. We also suggest patients to do shoulder mobilization exercises ie. general shoulder movements/neck movements which will help you to improve the blood circulation. It looks like you are anaemic. That's the reason your body becomes tired and you also have pain in the shoulder and back. And also your muscles become too tired especially in the area of the body where you get maximum body weight (ie. back) and shoulder which moves excessively during the day for any activity which we do with our hand. If the pain subsides after the day starts ie. once your metabolic activity starts in the body then you become alright, so you can take bath in warm water which would help you to break the tiredness. And also you can check with your calcium & vitamin levels in your body by consulting a general physician. You can also improve the protein diet in your body.

Hello. Drink at least 200ml of water after every hours and do stretching exercises for legs. Stretching: Sit with your knee straight and try to touch your toe with both hands. You will feel stretch pain in your leg. Do this for at least 3 times a day.

Hello Lybrate user, pain is due to your daily work schedule. Avoid long standing or long sitting postures. While siting don't keep your legs hanging .use some support. Medicines and daily exercise will reduce the pain. For more details you can consult. Thanku.

Try sitting on a soft cushion at work to avoid constant pressure on the coccyx. And try taking a break every hour and walk a little. Ultrasonic treatment at a physiotherapy clinic will give you relief.

Dear Sir, Please go for an X-Ray first and check out the structure. How the pain got started? Is it radiating to any leg or is there in the back only? Is there any history of fall or jerk? Answer these and till then crsh 2-3 cloves of garlic and put it in 100ml of water and 100ml of milk. Boil it till water is evaporated and only milk remains. Now strain it and drink it once a day in the morning. NOTE:- To some people it Dosen't suits as its very hot so check your body constitution. Avoid travelling on bikes and bumpy roads. Sleep on cotton mattress. Thanks n Regards Dr.Ritesh Chawla BAMS, MD.MUMBAI PGDMT(af)Germany Asst.Professor. Kayachikitsa (Ayurvedic Medicine) Dept. SLN Ayurvedic College, Amritsar.
