A gym is meant for health and fitness. You can expect minor changes in your body, but not big bulky muscles like they show in advertisements. Wrist is only made up of bones, hence it won't change much. Enjoy your gymming, enjoy your fitness.

ACL tear of the knee can also be managed conservatively with completely immobilizing the knee in a good knee brace. This must be done for at least 2 to 3 months. By the time pain would resolve. You may then start gradual muscle strengthening exercised to the thigh, hamstring and leg muscles for knee support.

Hello, Thanks for your query. I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. I can understand the severity of your pain. Was MRI done of cervical spine ? And can you send me the films? What about Neck pain ? We also need to r/o any vascular cause for it. You can try anti-inflammatory medications for some time and then let me know. Also TENS as a physiotherapy modality is useful if pain is neuropathic. Kindly let me know if you have any issues. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Email : akshaysaxena2004@yahoo.co.in

Tips To Prevent Knee Injuries!

Tips To Prevent Knee Injuries!

The knee is a very important joint of your body as it takes the majority of the body weight when you are standing up, walking or running. However, there may be many things you do daily which have been slowly reducing the capacity of your knees or damaging them. Some of the tips mentioned below reduce the unnecessary stress on your knees and prevent knee pain.

  1. Get the correct shoes and change them regularly: The shoes that you wear regularly determine your posture and thus how well your weight is distributed. If you have the wrong shoes or they have been worn out or have uneven soles after prolonged use, then the resulting imbalance could hurt your knees and cause problems.
  2. Wear protection: You could face serious down time or limitations in movement, if you don’t protect your knees while playing amateur sports or even during recreational sporting activities. Wear knee protection at all times if you think there is a risk of injury.
  3. Stretch before exercising: Always ensure your joints, especially your knee is warmed up so that it can take the impact shocks of exercises such as lifting weights or running. This will also help warm up your muscles and ensure an efficient, injury free work out.
  4. Lose weight: Excess weight over a prolonged period will make your knees weaker. Thus it is important to lose weight, without putting too much stress on the knees first so as to give them time to recover. Once your knees can take your weight without pain, you can go for heavier forms of exercise to enable even further weight loss.
  5. Swimming or walking: When running or heavy lifting seems to be taking a toll on your knees, then you can try to go for swimming and walking which will still be a good work outs without being too taxing on the knees.
  6. Try physical therapy or massages: You can take care of your knees with the help of massages and physical therapy. An injured tendon or cartilage tends to get injured regularly that can be corrected through physical therapy, yoga and massages.

Sprain means you have ligament injury. It has nothing do with fractures. As you have night pain too that means you may have grade 2 or 3 sprain. Please protect your leg and take full rest. Don't do any massage on the affected area. Do not put weight on the leg. Keep your leg elevated. Do visit nearest Physiotherapy Clinic for further rehabilitation.

Firstly avoid self diagnosis with information obtained from Internet. It can harm you psychologically . Information provided on Internet is just for educational purposes. For accurate diagnosis and treatment you should consult a doctor. As regards to your symptoms it could be Sciatica, but for confirmation you need to be examined physically by your doctor and also may need tests like MRI Scan of Lumbo sacral spine.
