In this condition avoid strain and stop the gym. Tk muscle relaxant medicine. Do hot fermentation. If it work then ok other physio session for 2 days. After relief start your gym in gradually process. Firstly your muscle should be use to gym then increase your strength levels.

Do not wear an overloaded backpack or wear it improperly, as it can lead to a poor posture, stress on the soft tissue in the neck and the back, and unnecessary strain on muscles and joints.

Hello lybrate-user, good morning. Since you said that the pain is present after you met with an accident, please consult orthopaedic immediately for diagnosis and follow their instructions. At present please do hot water fomentation if there is no swelling at the injured area. If swelling present, do icing for 15 minutes by taking some ice cubes in towel and do small circular movements at affected area. Take rest.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It is a voluntary habit or tics which you have developed over a period of time, although it is not harmful but you will have to voluntarily try to get rid of this as this is not a medical issue. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Except for Bigomet SR all other medicines are for your knee joint pain. Bigomet is for your diabetes. With this medicines your sugar are little bit on higher side. So you should consult your doctor to increase dosage of your diabetes medications.

Identify the midpoint between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. 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.

Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).
