How can a young boy aged 18 prevent arthritis after having acl reconstruction surgery?
Usually we recommend patient to undergo ACL reconstruction in symptomatic patient due to ACL injury to prevent early arthritis changes. That's you already undergone. You continue physiotherapy as advised by operative surgeon. Needs some more information regarding date of injury and operation and current knee status like Range of motion of knee joint.

My wife has been suffering from oa since past 30 years or so. She is now 79. Her ortho has advised her tkr. Is it advisable?

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
Knee surgery-total knee replacement (tkr) is quite safe & gives uniformly good results, in our hands. We have well equipped centers in delhi. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Surgery should be done when patient is still active & will be able to take benefit of surgery. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

It may be due weakness of muscles or nerves causing difficulty in blood flow to your back. Or it may be due to slip disc of back at lumbar reagion resulting in sciatic nerve compression causing radiating pain & numbness from lower back till legs. You should go for physiotherapy treatment for it to reduce pain & numbness and to improve muscle power of back & legs.

Lower Back Pain - Best Ways To Get Rid Of It!

Lower Back Pain - Best Ways To Get Rid Of It!

You might be an elite athlete or just a commoner. There is always a possibility for you to develop lower back pain while carrying out your daily activities. You might not be aware but regular activities like sitting at the computer, running on the treadmill or simply crawling into your bed for a good night's sleep can affect the health of your spine. You are always at the risk of damaging your spine. These damages lead to back pain. It has been found that faulty postures can cause back pain by causing straining of the back muscles, injuring the tendons and damaging the vertebrae or ligaments.

Back pain can be caused due to the overuse of a particular activity or for undertaking a new activity. However, it is often very difficult to pinpoint the exact reason behind the occurrence of back pain. Here are the common causes of lower back pain:

  1. The screen trouble: You are likely to develop back pain, if you spend long hours sitting in front of the computer. Researchers believe that spending nine hours or more a day by texting on smartphones or tablets or typing on the computer is dangerous. You must take a break at regular intervals while working on the gadgets to avoid back pain. Your monitor of the computer should be placed at the level of your eye.
  2. You skip the core exercises: The health of your spine depends on the core regions of your body as well. The core region includes your back, side, pelvic, and buttock muscles. It is important that you practise the core exercises like lunges, squats, and planks. They help in strengthening the muscles around your core region and keep your spine healthy.
  3. Improper sleep pattern: Your sleeping pattern is as much important as your walking or sitting pattern when it comes to the health of your spine. If you sleep on your stomach, pressure is placed on joints and muscles. This may cause straining of the muscles or ligaments in the spine region.
  4. Smoking: Cigarettes are not just unhealthy for your lungs or heart, they are equally bad for the spine. Cigarettes contain nicotine. Researchers have found that nicotine hampers the flow of blood to the vertebrae and disks in between the spine. Insufficient supply of blood to the spine region results in low absorption of calcium by the bones in this region. Therefore, you end up developing back pain.
  5. Blame it on your emotions: Back pain adds to your emotional stress. But believe it or not, the reverse is equally true. Depression and emotional stress, increases or sometimes even initiates back pain. When an individual is depressed, his or her glands release stress hormones known as cortisol. This hormone causes the muscles in the back region to tense up.

Ways to get rid of lower back pain

  1. You must lie on your back.
  2. It is then advisable to lift your left leg, as high as you can
  3. Thereafter, keep the legs straight in a raised position.
  4. You are then supposed to hold your lower thigh with both hands.
  5. You can then pull the leg toward your upper half of the body
  6. Hold this position for some 10 to 15 seconds.
  7. Position yourself back in the starting position.
  8. Repeat the same with the right leg.
  9. Do this 2-3 times with each leg to get rid of the lower back pain.
  10. Apply hot or cold compression on the affected part
  11. Eat a balanced diet
  12. Don’t smoke or drink
  13. Exercise in a proper posture
  14. Don’t spend too many hours sitting before laptops or tv. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

I have a severe backbones or spinal pain while waking up in morning. Is it any spinal problem or due to cold?

I have a severe backbones or spinal pain while waking up in morning. Is it any spinal problem or due to cold?
Back pain may be due to strain, sprain, weather change etc. *Avoid bending forward while working on lap top or for any other work. *Don’t sit continuously working on laptop etc. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict bike driving as far as possible. *Don’t carry laptop or any load on your shoulder. Carrying very light loads equally with both hands is better *Sit straight so that back bone gets proper support. A dining chair is better than a laid back sofa. *You can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good *Soft bed will not give proper support to your back bone. Hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow is better. *Get yourself tested whether you have spondylitis problem. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take Calc fluor 200--once daily in the morning.
