Hi i Am 49 years old. After running 2 miles I used to do bab ramdev's few exercises to reduce stomach and side fats. That is raising the legs and making a big o like 360 dgree. Once perhaps I had a twist and not able to do it. Not able to properly raise the leg. If I apply force it gives pain near thigh joint right side. Three months I discontinued that exercise and now became obese. Stomach which was under control, now came out. Please advise. I do seating job. Please advise me. Thought it would go away. But am not able to do exercise.

As you twist pl do have clinically examined by musculskelotal physiotherapist or orthopadician asap to rule any stain or sprain in the hip joint and femur bone or if there is any vascularitis etc, so before that don't attempt any exercise as it may worsen the conditions if any best wishes.

Dear Bikash Bhuyan, Namaskar, you must sleep on a firm mattress with a soft and thin pillow, use a commode and avoid stairs. Do hot fomentation and apply muscodac gel 2-3 times a day. Wear a LS belt. Take zerodol SP and omez 40 mgm. 1 tab each, twice a day for 5-7 days. Get swd +ust for 5-7 sittings at a good physiotherapy center. You will settle. If not get x-ray LS spine AP and lateral views and revert back to me with the reports.... You are too young to have spondylitis.... Take care.

Hip Replacement Surgery - What To Expect?

Hip Replacement Surgery - What To Expect?

Hip replacement is a common surgical procedure that you may need if your hip has been damaged due to arthritis, a fracture, or other serious conditions. All of these can make common activities like walking or getting in and out of a chair very painful and difficult. If you are facing the same difficulties despite medications, changes in lifestyle and physiotherapy, it is time to go in for a hip replacement.

Causes of Hip Pain
The most common cause of long-term hip pain and disability is arthritis.

  1. Osteoarthritis- This is an age-related problem that causes wear and tear of the hip joint. Usually, older people get this arthritis. What happens in osteoarthritis is that the cartilage cushioning the bones of the hip wears away. The bones then rub against each other leading to hip pain and stiffness.
  2. Rheumatoid arthritis- RA is an autoimmune disease in which the synovial membrane in the hip joint becomes inflamed. This damages the cartilage causing pain and stiffness.
  3. Post-traumatic arthritis- This arthritis follows a hip injury or fracture. In this the cartilage may become damaged leading to hip pain and stiffness.
  4. Avascular necrosis- The lack of blood to the femoral head can cause the surface of the bone to collapse resulting in arthritis.
  5. Childhood hip disease may also require this surgery.

Hip replacement- How it’s done?
Hip replacement surgery is one of the safest operations in medicine. The hip is a ball –and –socket joint and in a total hip replacement the damaged bone and cartilage is removed and replaced with metal or plastic prosthetics. Hip replacement surgery is usually performed in a traditional manner or using a minimally-invasive technique. The main difference between the two lies in the size of the incision for surgery.

During standard hip replacement surgery, a patient is given general anesthesia. This is followed by a cut along the side of the hip after which the surgeon moves the muscles connected to the tip of the thighbone to expose the hip joint. Post this the ball portion of the hip joint is removed by sawing off the thigh bone. After this, the artificial joint is attached to the thighbone by using either cement or a special material. The surgeon then removes any damaged cartilage from the surface of the hipbone and attaches the replacement socket portion to the hip bone. Most hip replacement surgeries today are performed using the standard technique however; the minimally-invasive technique, is getting more and more popular. In this, the surgeon makes one to two cuts from 2 to 5 inches long and then carries out the same steps like in the standard hip replacement surgery. The patient may have to stay in hospital for 3-6 days post a hip replacement surgery and has to undergo long-term physiotherapy to attain normal use of the hip joint.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi lybrate-user, this sounds like plantar fasciitis which is an inflammatory condition of the foot. This can be confirmed by consulting a pain physician/ orthopedician and taking a foot x ray. Simple things that can be done include rest, icing your foot/sole twice a day, orthotic plantar arch supports, elevation of foot in the night on a pillow. Sometimes patients require injections if the conservative management fails. Please confirm diagnosis and proceed.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Ways To Manage it!

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Ways To Manage it!

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful one that is born from a strain on the median nerve, which loops through the wrist bone to connect it with the rest of the hand and fingers so as to promote motion. This condition can be a painful and debilitating one that usually starts at night, and affects the various fingers, especially the thumb and index finger. The symptoms include numbness, a tingling sensation, a weak grip, and the inability to do many tasks that involve the thumb and index finger. There are many ways of treating this condition with the help of physiotherapy, steroids and corticosteroids. There are easier ways of dealing with this issue on an everyday basis, as follows.

  1. Wrist Splint: It is a good idea to wear a wrist splint at night which will keep the bones and muscles stationary as the pain in this condition usually starts at night. This will also prevent further damage to the median nerve. 
  2. Activity: Keep your activity to a minimum to give your hand and rest, in particular, some much needed rest from the pain, numbness and tingling. Further, you need to avoid activities that cause too much pain and numbness. Also, take care to keep your thumb and wrist straight during other activities so that there is less strain on the median nerve.
  3. Strength and Flexibility: Many times, the pain from the wrist and fingers can spread towards the arm as well. In order to prevent this and to treat the pain on a more long term basis, it is important to turn to some mild exercise which can make the area more flexible and strong. This can include wrist twists which can be done ten times for each hand. One can also try Yoga to strengthen the joints in the upper body.
  4. Ice Pack: Use an ice pack or ice compress on your wrist for ten to fifteen minutes each every few hours to help in relieving unbearable pain.
  5. Anti-Inflammatory Medication: Patients suffering from this condition can also turn to non steroid medication that will help in bringing down the inflammation. This inflammation is usually responsible to a great extent for symptoms like numbness and pain which can halt various activities. These drugs may include aspirin, ibuprofen, and even naproxen sodium
  6. Taking Breaks: One must take regular breaks at work and flex the fingers and the wrist so that the painful bending posture does not make matters worse.

Ensuring that you manage your everyday functioning despite Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a matter of balancing your activities with rest.
