If you r not used to jog before. You could start with walking slow to fast for few days and jogging after that. So your body will adapt to it slowly.

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 a desk job and last 5 months me have a back pain me take a pain killer bt not god response please help.

I have a desk job and last 5 months me have a back pain me take a pain killer bt not god response please help.
Hunching over a desk is a leading reason why people end up with crippling back pain at some point in their lives. But a few simple changes in the way you work can make your pain go away. 1-Keep your head up; Focus on aligning your head and neck right above your shoulders; avoid straining forward. 2-Be choosy with your chair: Pick one that allows your lower back to rest against a lumbar support. Then tilt the back of the chair so it’s very slightly reclined. 3-Plant your feet: Keep them flat on the floor and shoulder-width apart to quiet tension in your knees and ankles. 4-Take breaks: Getting up at least once an hour— just do some shoulder rolls—reduces pressure on spinal disks and boosts circulation. If your back pain is severe please go to a Physiotherapist for detail assessment and management of your pain. Best wishes.

My wife who is 35 years old had suffered from 5th Metatarsal fracture in right foot in January this year. The foot was in cast for 4 weeks and later it was removed. But the pain in foot never subsidized completely. On again taking X Ray, there was still some portion which was not fully healed. Again it was in crap for some days. But now problem is Pain is still there ins foot Surprisingly there is severe pain in base of 2nd toe, although in X Ray there was nothing scene Doctor here had prescribed calcium and SOS pin killer Please advise what should I do.

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy)
Physiotherapist,
The new pain in 2nd toe may be due to wrong weight distribution by your wife to avoid pain over the fracture site. If you haven't gone for physiotherapy treatment please consult a qualified physiotherapist who can mobilise the foot joint which may help to properly weigh bear and distribute weight on standing and walking. This will help her to relieve from pain.

Dear , you need to be thoroughly investigated to find the cause of your back pain. Taking painkillers is only a temporary solution. I would suggest that you get x-rays and mri scan of your back. If you have already visited an orthopedic surgeon, you can send me a photo of his prescription. Meanwhile use an l-s belt (available with most medicine shops). Take rest. Avoid forward bending and lifting heavy objects. Use a hot bag and pain relieving gel. How long are you having this pain?
