: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

I have pain in my left arm and not able to stretch it properly. What to do? Please advise.
Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

Hello- knee and mostly all joints are supplied by a kind of lubricating fluid called as synovial fluid to prevent the friction between two bones of the joint. With the progressing age, the amount of fluid gets decrease or altered and hence causes increased friction between the bones in joint and causes pain and inflammation.

Physiotherapy for Hip Mobility

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Delhi

If you have a desk job that involves sitting right in front of your computer throughout the day or for a major part of the day, you could be unknowingly putting yourself at augmented risk of reduced hip mobility. The hips are one of the major muscles in your body that are used in a number of activities you do everyday.

Causes of Hip Immobility-

1. Sitting for long hours at the same place and working. This is common to people who work in front of the computer screens for extended hours continuously.

2. Toxic Synovitis, which is an inflammation of the hip joint. It causes pain and stiffness.

3. Juvenile Arthritis

4. Rheumatoid arthritis

5. Tendinitis or inflammation of the tendons that causes severe discomfort in movement

6. Ankylosing spondylitis that mainly affects the spine. It can cause extreme pain and discomfort in the movement of the hips. This makes it difficult to sit, stand or lie down.

7. Injuries

8. Fractures and breakage

9. Muscle and tissue ruptures near the hip region

10. Sprains and strains

11. Lack of proper blood circulation

12. Pain and injuries in the lower back region which can spread to the hip, causing stiffness and swelling

Physiotherapy for Hip Mobility-

Physiotherapy alias physical therapy is considered as one of the fastest growing allied areas of present generation medicine. Being an important rehabilitative service needed in a community and a vital therapeutic supplement of the medical profession, it's the treatment of diseases and disabilities using physical exercises, heat radiations, cold therapy, hydrotherapy, acupuncture and therapeutic massage.

As doctors, physiotherapists or physical therapists are essential in helping the patient to recover and rehabilitate from a state of incapacity, due to genetic defect or the result of an accident or an illness. Physiotherapy for Hip Mobility involves certain exercises. Below give are some of the most common exercises for hip mobility-.

  1. Lying Hip Rotations. One has to lie on the back on a padded mat, then put one leg over the other, exactly over the knee on one’s lower thigh. Now, use either a towel or the hands to get to the leg that is placed below and without hyperextending, slowly pull this leg’s knee closer to the chest.

  2. Butterfly Movements and The Frog Posture.

  3. The Kneeling Lunge. Here, one has to lunge forward with one knee on a padded mat. Then position the foot carefully beyond the knee that is put forward. Place your hands over the knees; straighten hip of the rear leg while leaning with the hips forward. Hold this particular stretch and repeat with the opposite side.

  4. The Squatting Position.

  5. The Pigeon Posture. In this, your knees need to be right below the hip on the padded mat. Then lower the outer side of the right buttock to the mat. You have to position your right heel in such a manner that it is exactly in front of the left hip. Hold this stretch for about 5-6 breaths and exhale deeply through the nose.

  6. Bending forwards or backwards, guided and assisted by a physiotherapist.

  7. Stretching Exercises.

  8. Hot compresses on the area of inflammation.

  9. Ice packs can also be applied alternately on the spot of injury.

  10. Massage helps to regulate blood circulation and is an important part of physiotherapy.

Dear, low back pain are often referred for physical therapy for four weeks as an initial conservative (nonsurgical) treatment option before considering other more aggressive treatments, including back surgery. The goals of physical therapy are to decrease back pain, increase function, and teach the patient a maintenance program to prevent future back problems. Common forms of physical therapy include: 1.Passive physical therapy (modalities), which includes things done to the patient, such as heat application, ice packs and electrical stimulation. For example, a heating pad may be applied to warm up the muscles prior to doing exercising and stretching, and an ice pack may be used afterward to sooth the muscles and soft tissues. OSee Physical Therapy: Passive PT (Modalities) for Back Pain 2.Active physical therapy, which focuses on specific exercises and stretching. For most low back pain treatments, active exercise is the focus of the physical therapy program. This article focuses on active physical therapy and exercise as a means to help recover from back problems and prevent or minimize future flare-ups of low back pain Low back pain has lasted between two and six weeks, or if there are frequent recurrences of low back pain, physical therapy is often recommended. Some spine specialists consider physical therapy sooner, particularly if the pain is severe. •Read more: Exercise and Back Pain In general, the goals of physical therapy are to decrease pain, increase function, and provide education on a maintenance program to prevent further recurrences. A physical therapy program for back pain usually has two components: 1.Passive physical therapy to help reduce the patient's pain to a more manageable level 2.Active exercises Passive Physical Therapy - Modalities Acutely, the physical therapist may focus on decreasing pain with passive physical therapy (modalities).
