Hi I am a 47 yr male and I have a problem in my thigh when I stand for more than 15 mins. My thigh becomes stiff and loses sensation.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Pain, paresthesia, numbness etc in thigh especially in outer aspect can be due to compression of a nerve which is called as meralgia, also it could be due to compression and symptoms from the back region. Initially you can start with: - physical therapy like tens - medication like pregabalin or gabapentin in small doses can be started and we can monitor the response - can also take an anti-inflammatory medication for some time especially if there is any pain associated. Let me know in around 1 week -10 days how are you feeling, we can get some tests to establish the diagnosis and also step up the medications as per the response. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I have back pain at left side and sometimes I get pain in my left hand as well. What's Wrong with me.

MPT - Orthopedic Physiotherapy, Fellowship in Orthopaedic Rehabilitation (FOR)
Physiotherapist, Kolkata
Hello, it sounds more of a muscular imbalance or spasmodic pain, or a facet joint problem which you are having. You need to go for a detailed phsyiotherapeutic evaluation and treatment under a skilled orthopedic physiotherapist. In the mean time you can apply hot pack at your low back for 15 min twice a day and do lumbar rotation exercise on the side which is painful. You may do hamstring stretching for 15 sec with four repetitions. Hope it may help you. About your hand pain you should be more specific. Then it will be easy for me to advice the needful. Thanks.

My 45 year old mom has diabetes from 8 years. She is taking insulin. From 3 years she is having severe knee pain. And all types of treatment has done and none worked. Doctors said cartilage (gel like thing) has dried up completely in her knees. Please suggest foods to build cartilage and any supplement and perfect treatment?

MBBS, DNB (Orthopedics)
Orthopedist, Noida
The only treatment I feel effective is weight control and regular exercises especially quadriceps exercises. If its bone on bone grade 4 arthritis which can be very much seen on standing knee X-rays the treatment would be replacement. All the interim measures as stated above are not long term as its more of a mechanical problem and do not offer long term results in sever OA.

Shin Splints - Causes And Symptoms!

Shin Splints - Causes And Symptoms!

Shin splints is a condition, which is characterized by pain in the shin bone, the bone that is present in front of the leg. Shin splints tend to occur quite frequently in runners and dancers as their activities tend to stress the shin bone.

Causes: When excess force is applied to the shinbone, it may result in swelling of the muscles, causing pain and inflammation. It may also occur from stress reactions to fractures in the bone. Cracks tend to develop due to constant application of force in the bones. If the area is not well rested then these cracks will not heal and ultimately lead to a complete fracture.

Some other causes of shin splints are:

  1. Muscle imbalance in the glutes or the thighs
  2. Anatomical deformity such as flat foot
  3. Not using proper form during training
  4. Lack of flexibility
  5. If you wear improper shoes during workouts, then it may lead to shin problems
  6. Running downhill may lead to excessive stress on the shin leading to shin splints

Symptoms:
The symptoms of shin splints are: 

  1. You may experience swelling in the lower leg
  2. A dull pain in the front portion of the leg
  3. Tenderness around the shin area
  4. Numbness around the shin area
  5. Inflammation in the shin area
  6. You may experience severe pain while walking

Treatment: The basic treatment for shin splints is the RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) protocol. It means allowing the leg to rest, applying ice packs and wearing compression bandages. It is recommended to take rest and not exert the leg beyond a certain point to limit the damage. The complications that may result from shin splints are compartment syndrome, where there is buildup of pressure in the muscle. In some cases, where the muscle tears off from the bone, a surgery may be required to treat this condition. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an orthopedist.

POSTURE AND BACK PAIN

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy), BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
POSTURE AND BACK PAIN


Correct posture is a simple but very important way to keep the many intricate structures in the back and spine healthy. It is much more than cosmetic - good posture and back support are critical to reducing the incidence and levels of back pain and neck pain. Back support is especially important for patients who spend many hours sitting in an office chair or standing throughout the day.
Not maintaining good posture and adequate back support can add strain to muscles and put stress on the spine. Over time, the stress of poor posture can change the anatomical characteristics of the spine, leading to the possibility of constricted blood vessels and nerves, as well as problems with muscles, discs, and joints. All of these can be major contributors to back and neck pain, as well as headaches, fatigue, and possibly even concerns with major organs and breathing.
