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.

To achieve weightloss - think long term. Weight loss achieved over short term, always comes back. There is a general approach and a specific approach as per individual patients metabolic profile. Try this general approach (see below) for 4 weeks. If this works then continue. If this is not enough then revert for further assessment and customized approach. 1. Do not eat anything sugary or sweet. Zero sweetness in diet. 2. Eat plenty of salad in lunch and dinner along with other foods. 3. Do not drink any liquid calorie like cola or fruit juices. 4. Do some weight training for 20-25 minutes x 3 times a week.

Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain: -stop normal physical activity for the first few days. This will help relieve your symptoms and reduce any swelling in the area of the pain. -apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. --while sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back for the first 6 weeks after the pain begins. -avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -stretching and strengthening exercises are important. But, starting these exercises too soon after an injury can make your pain worse. -some physiotherapy treatment like ift current can give you some relief. -a full history of your problem should be taken and your movements assessed by a physiotherapist. Please consult a physiotherapist for the same.

Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)

Know more about the symptoms and types for frozen shoulder

Good morning everybody, I am doctor Rakesh Kumar, I am senior consultant in orthopedics in Apollo hospital, Jivan mala and MGS hospital. Today I am going to give health tips on frozen shoulder. Frozen shoulder is named as Adhesive Capsulitis. Adhesive Capsulitis is a condition in which contracted thickened joint capsules that seem to be drawn tightly around a humeral head in the absence of synovial fluid and chronic inflammatory changes within the subsynovial layer of the capsule occurs. The underlying pathological change in adhesive capsulitis are sinonasal inflammation, with subsequent reactive capsular fibrosis, cytokines and metaloprotanysis have been implicated in the process but the initial triggering event in the cascades is unknown. Incidence is 2%, but several conditions are specified with increased incidence, includes gender—i.e more common in females, more common in older ages—between 40 to 70 years, 5 times more common in diabetes mellitus, cervical disc diseases, prolonged immobilization, hyperthyroidism, stroke, or myocardial infections, the presence of autoimmune disease and trauma.


Individuals between ages 40 to 70 are more commonly affected, approximately 70% patients are females. 20% to 30% of affected individuals develop adhesive capsulitis in the opposite shoulder. Frozen shoulder in patients who report no inciting event and with no abnormality are designated as primary whereas in patients with precipitant traumatic injuries are designated as secondary. We have noted that internal rotation frequently is lost in sleep followed by loss of fluctuation and external rotation, most often our patients can internally rotate only upto the sacrum, have 50% loss of external rotation and have less than 90 degree of abduction.
We include these patients in the diagnosis of frozen shoulder.

Primary frozen shoulder have three phases-

Phase 1 is a phase of pain, patients usually have a gradual onset of diffused shoulder pain which is progressive over weeks to months, the pain usually is worse at night, and is exacerbated by lying on the affected side as the patient uses the arm less leading to stiffness.

Phase 2 is stiffness, Patient seeks pain relief by restricting movements this heralds the beginning of stiffness phase which usually lasts for 4 to 12 months. Patients describe difficulty in activity of daily living, men have trouble getting to their wallets in their back pockets while females have trouble with fastening their brassieres.

Phase 3 is pain thawing phase, this phase lasts for weeks or months. And as motion increases pain diminishes without treatment other than benign neglect motion return is gradual in most but may never objectively return to normal. Although most patients subjectively feels near normal, they make adjustments in ways of performing activities of daily livings.

Treatments- Frozen shoulder has been considered as self limiting condition lasting 12 to 18 months without long term sick leave.  Approximately 10% of patients have long term problems. The best treatment of frozen shoulder is prevention. But early intervention is paramount. A good understanding of the pathological process by the patient and the physician also is important.

If you need further clarification and have any question and need any treatment you can contact me through Lybrate.

Vaginismus - Things You Should Be Aware of

MBBS, DPM, DNB (Psychiatry)

Vaginismus - Things You Should Be Aware of

Vaginismus is a condition characterized by significant pain in the vagina generally during sexual intercourse. This pain occurs on penetration due to the contraction of the vaginal muscles.

Causes

The exact cause of Vaginismus is not exactly known to the doctors. But some researchers suggests that the pain might result from severe anxiety or illogical fears before sex.

Vaginismus can be primary or secondary depending on the concerned woman’s previous sexual experiences. Vaginismus can be linked to an earlier sexually painful experience, sexual trauma or psychological factors. In some cases, the pain tends to exist without any direct physical cause. The causes of the pain might vary from women to women and might occur in some cases with only one specific partner and not with others.

Sometimes the pain might stem from underlying infections or any other underlying complications.

The symptoms of Vaginismus are as follows:

  1. Severe pain during intercourse.

  2. Severe pain during insertion of tampons or during any medical check-ups.

The following treatments can be useful to treat Vaginismus:

  1. If the pain arises due to anxiety or fear, counselling sessions can help you to a remedy.

  2. If the pain arises whenever something penetrates the vaginal walls, progressive desensitization can be useful to treat the pain. The process aims to loosen the vaginal muscles so that you don’t experience any pain during sexual intercourse.

Kegel exercises (at least 20 of them) can help in the initial stage to relax the vaginal muscles. After you exercise for a few days, you should try inserting one finger inside your vagina while doing the exercises. Try doing it gently and if it still hurts, try doing it with a lubricating jelly. This continuous procedure will help in the contraction of the vaginal muscles which eventually relax.

Pain in left toe is the typical feature of gout (raised uric acid) knee pain could be due to the same, as the uric acid deposited a few days back when the level was high can lead to pain following inflammation now so better continue drugs to reduce uric acid, follow diet restriction and take pain killers for knee pain.
