I had a left knee injury in November month, my knee got hit against a wall. It did not pain after a week from the injury. But when I started playing cricket on the first day itself I felt the pain again, it is paining since then. I consulted a bone setter and got temporary plasters for 2 times but it did not showed any much improvement. I got x-rayed (AP/LAT) and the radiologist report said -1 visualised bones show no obvious abnormality 2-joint space is normal 3-adjacent soft tissue is unremarkable. What should I do. Please advice.

Hi it's a case of knee surrounding muscles weakness. Need to strengthen all surrounding groups with free hand exercises of knee to slow progressive exercises. Knee quads, hams and rotators need to be strengthened. But first evaluation have to be done whether really those muscles strengthening is required or not. Later balance training is required. Initially we need to reduce to the pain by tapping or knee supporter with straps. Than exercises get an online consultation done to get accurate diagnosis and get the treatment plan. Regards.

I can understand that its tough to do your daily chores living with pain. Your pain could be due to tight or weak back muscles. Try changing your posture when sitting for long periods, take a break and do stretching exercises when sitting for long time. Also hot and cold fermentation can help. Back pain can be due to many causes. Wish you fast recovery.

- kindly tell what treatment had been taken for cervical spondylitis till so far. - for cervical spondylitis, there is neck exercises after hot water appllication.- if swellling is there than need for physiotherapy ultrasound, ift - she also having leg pain, you hadnot mentioned cause of it as cervical spondylitis os neck pain only.- she might be having low back pain also. - check her vit D, B12, uric acid levels. As deficiency of these vitamins will make her bones and muscles weak day by day, increasing her arthritis condition which may even lead to fracture in later cases. As a precaution: 1 avoid heavy weight lifting 2 avoid any jery movement to spine. 3 use of lumbar belt or cervical collar.- if her pain is more kindly go for physio sessions as soon as possible.

The best thing you can do for pain is to massage the leg, followed by hot fomentation. You can also drink milk boiled with garlic. This will help relieve the pain.

Physiotherapy for Back Pain

MPT - Orthopedic Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy for Back Pain

Most of us suffer from lower back pain at some point in our lives; be it from a sedentary lifestyle, spending hours at the office desk or from strenuous physical exercises. In most cases, a little bit of rest does the trick. However, if the lower back pain persists for 3-6 weeks, physiotherapy is recommended.

How does physiotherapy help?

The main purpose behind physiotherapy is reducing lower back pain and increasing muscle and bone function, so that such instances are avoided in the future. Physiotherapy is the first line of defence against lower back pain. More drastic measures such as surgery are undertaken once physiotherapy fails to do is job.

Physiotherapy is often recommended when the back pain is caused due to lifestyle factors, a minor injury like a fall or other moderate factors. For more severe back injuries, doctors recommend surgery straight away when there is no scope of performing physiotherapy.

Low-intensity back pain can be cured using a combination of heat packs, ultrasound wave therapy and Iontophoresis (using a localized current source to introduce medical ionic compounds to the body).

A physical therapy program for back pain usually has two components:

  1. Passive physical therapy to help reduce the patient's pain to a more manageable level

  2. Active exercises

Passive Physical Therapy - Modalities

The physical therapist may focus on decreasing pain with passive physical therapy (modalities). These therapies are considered passive because they are done to the patient. Examples include:

  1. Heat/ice packs

  2. TENS units

  3. Iontophoresis

  4. Ultrasound

Active Physical Therapy - Back Pain Exercises

In addition to passive therapies, active physical therapy (exercise) is also necessary to rehabilitate the spine. Here are some of the common exercises for back pain:

  1. Back Stretch: Put your hands underneath your head while lying back. Bend your knees but put your feet on the ground. Roll your legs to one side and hold them there for 10 seconds. Repeat three times for each side.

  2. Deep Lunge: For this, you need to kneel on one knee with the other foot pointed towards the front. Lift the back knee up and hold it there for five seconds and then bring it down. Repeat this exercise three times for each side.

  3. One Leg Stand: This is the simplest of exercises. Hold on to a wall for support while standing and face towards it. Then slowly hold one leg and bend it behind you. Hold in the same position for five seconds before bringing it down. Repeat the process three times for each leg in five second gaps.
