Core strengthening exercises- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Back stretching- lie flat, pull one of the knee forward to chest, hold for 3 seconds, then bring the other knee forward to the chest and again hold for 3 seconds. Then pull both knees towards the chest and hold for 3 seconds. Repeat 10 times each exercise twice a day.

Dear, Frozen shoulder gives acute pain symptoms at night. There's no medicine for improving the shoulder however pain killers may give temporary relief but that will keep the shoulder frozen only. I would recommend her to take physiotherapy especially shoulder mobilisation exercises which a therapist only can perform and it can take from 3 months to 6 months of physiotherapy for the condition to be fully cured (depends on her shoulder condition and medical history) For other joints please get some blood tests done (like rheumatoid factor, Utica acid, ESR and CRP etc) to check out the kind of arthritis and for that you need to consult an orthopaedic.

Dear lybrate-user, Your father is using steroids (formonide) for a long time 8 years and exposure to steroid medications have major effects on the metabolism of calcium, vitamin D and bone. This can lead to bone loss, osteoporosis, and broken bones. When steroid medications are used in high doses, bone loss can happen rapidly, Suffering from cervical spondylosis can be due to the formonide use. Try to visit your chest physician and have detailed check up. Home precautions: 1. Donot use a pillow 2. Not to bend a lot 3. Avoid fast moving on either side 4.Use ice pack to relieve pain with any analgesic ointment (which ever is available at home) 5. Cervical collar is must and take a gud quality and give a proper measurement so that neck is supported properly, never use when he is sleeping or taking rest. 6. For nausea and chakkar there are lot of medications but the dosage depends upon the intensity your father is having and its calibrated after physical examination. 7. Use of multivitamins and calcium can lower the damage.

Knee. Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. 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). Shoulder. Advice. Regular stretching of shoulder muscles. Warm up and cool down is a must. Hot fomentation.

First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket. And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back. You may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * surya namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * in diet vegetable protein of cereal, b complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

Firstly avoid self diagnosis with information obtained from Internet. It can harm you psychologically . Information provided on Internet is just for educational purposes. For accurate diagnosis and treatment you should consult a doctor. As regards to your symptoms it could be Sciatica, but for confirmation you need to be examined physically by your doctor and also may need tests like MRI Scan of Lumbo sacral spine.

My left hip damaged. I have some genetic deformity. Flat foots, bend of knees, shortness of legs etc. The defects. My doubt is that whether the hip replacement will affect the spinal? this question arose due to my deformity. Whether the body will reject the new devise or artificial hip?

DNB (Orthopedics), Diploma In Orthopaedics (D. Ortho), MBBS
Orthopedist, Chennai
Why will the body reject the new device unless you have some known allergy to metal or ceramic material. Allergy is usually not related to deformities. However the multiple deformities indicate that a proper assessment is necessary to see if the muscles around your hip, knee and ankle can support the hip and keep it inside the socket. Strong muscles are important to keep the hip in the socket. It is also important for the knee to be straight and the foot to be flat for you to be able to walk comfortably. If all these conditions are met, then a total hip replacement with large head will give a stable hip. A ceramic replacement will ensure that the hip joint lasts long in your case. Consult me if you need more information,
