Show x rays of both knee joints this could be due to oa knee &/or obesity. Physiotherapy along with medicines will help. Do knee exercises.

Use soft medium sized pillow while sleeping. Perform neck exercises for 10 mins in the morning and evening regularly.

What kind of pain you feel ex.sharp shooting , and is it associated with the timing of day or with some work, it might be because of low calcium level, you need to focus on your diet and some streatching and strengthning of your leg and back muscles. For instant relief you can use hot pack to reduce pain.

The recovery period of acetabulum surgery encompasses three individual three-month periods. During the first six weeks after surgery activities are well restricted. More aggressive range of motion and strengthening exercises begin during the second six weeks period. Strengthening conditioning and flexibility activities increase thereafter. After hospital discharge at first, isometric and gentle range of motion exercises are supervised by a physical therapist. After 6 weeks, hip motion and strengthening activities are increased. Weight bearing restrictions relax as hip strength is achieved. Aquatic programs may be beneficial for some patients. Please see a physiotherapist for your specific rehabilitation programme, they may begin a home exercise programme as well. Best wishes.

Exercise is the only way out to release the compression on sciatic nerve. Lie down on back with extended knee and elbow joint. Raise your one leg keeping other leg parallel to the ground, hold for 25 sec, then slowly bring down. Do the same with opposite leg, and then with both legs.

Dear first of all you need a proper diagnosis and that needs detailed evaluation and imaging to confirm the diagnosis. Once it is done we can treat you accordingly. Leg pain needs more specific details as it is vague.

I am declared medically unfit for mild cubitus valgus in my NDA medicals. Suggest me exercises to decrease it by a degree or so.

Fellowship in Comprehensive Ophthalmology, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Sangrur
There are many functional factors and perpetuating conditions that can produce and exacerbate a condition of Cubitus Valgus there may be a deformity of the elbow joint that needs to be corrected surgically; only your examining physician will have a clue. If there is a joint or connective tissue lesion or deformity, it will probably need to be surgically repaired. Also, there are also other neuromyofascial considerations that may be affecting your condition, such as active trigger points in lateral triceps, brachioradialis, and pronator teres, that can produce the posture and functional weakness of cubitus valgus: If these muscles have even a latent (non-painful, but ROM limiting) trigger point, they can be easily released non-surgically, with function and comfort restored through rehabilitation protocol for these muscles. You ask about possible lifestyle changes to help with your condition, but this is exactly the sort of question that I (or anyone online) can't answer: it needs a full history and in-person examination. Per your question, I don't know your occupation, past medical history, medications, hobbies, and about a hundred other details.

Causes and Symptoms of Stress Fracture

MS - Orthopaedics, MCH, Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MBBS, FJR
Orthopedist, Delhi
Causes and Symptoms of Stress Fracture

Stress fractures are small cracks that may appear in a bone. It occurs due to repetitive application of force in the same area. It is very common among various sports such as running, tennis and football. It may also occur due to osteoporosis as this disorder weakens the bones and allows stress fractures to occur easily.

The majority of stress fractures occur due to overuse of a specific muscle. The bones and the muscles used in a specific movement do not get time to recover, thus leading to stress fracture.

Causes: The major cause of stress fracture is change in physical activity, such as a sudden increase in exercise. The other factors that may lead to stress fracture are -

  1. Poor conditioning: If you are starting an exercise regimen without proper preparation, then it may cause stress on the muscles. It is important that you condition your body before doing any intense activity to prevent injuries.
  2. Bone insufficiency: Various disorders such as osteoporosis reduces bone strength and increases the likelihood of a stress fracture. If you have low bone density then you are at a higher risk of having stress fractures.
  3. Change in surface: Change in surface like shifting from running on grass to road tends to cause more stress on the legs, thus increasing the likelihood of a fracture.
  4. Improper form: Performing any exercise with improper form may lead to a number of injuries. It is recommended to learn the correct technique before exercising, so you may use a spotter or a trainer to guide you.

Symptoms
The symptoms of a stress fracture are: 

  1. Pain: You may experience dull to severe pain if you have stress fractures. The severity of pain will depend on the severity of the fracture.
  2. Swelling: Pain may be accompanied by swelling on the sides and the top of the foot.
  3. Tenderness: Stress fractures may cause tenderness in the muscles around the affected area.
