I am 45 years old woman have back muscle pain left side of spinal cord. Exray shows muscle sweeling. What should I do? I drive scooty is that a reason?

BPTh/BPT, Credentialed Mckenzie therapist
Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Hello , only scooty driving may not be the sole reason for the pain. Try to maintain your postures n positions straight while driving it. Plus if u have a sedentary life style try being a little active. Use stairs instead of lift and walk for small distances. I think this shud help.

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist,
I have a problem of Legs Pain.
Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do stretching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you dont get relief see a physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

Is it fresh injury or you have that problem since long. Right now, apply ice 5 times daily for 19 minutes each time. Don't throw anything for a month. Give rest to that part so that it heals.

I am 2years old, and I have always a problem with my back pain due to which I can not do my work properly.

I am 2years old, and I have always a problem with my back pain due to which I can not do my work properly.
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.

Goodevening your acl tear injury should not be ignored. Make sure you spend about half hour on the exrercises for the knee. You could start with knee bending exercises and then progress to straight leg raising exercises. All this will help you to improve your strength on the knee. Then you could also do with a improving on your quadriceps and hamstring muscles. Make sure you wear a knee cap while you are playing any sport. This will support your knee very well.
