I have some pain in the knee joint on the back side (above calf muscle). I walk 5 km and take 5 stairs of steps. Is it because of taking stairs. Should I stop taking stairs and confine to walking only. Am 67 years old male.

Hi, Walking on a levelled surface for 5 kms is fine. But climbing the stairs up and down is very strenuous to the joints and the muscles as they are over worked. Joints get worn out at an early date due to excessive usage. Therefore, stop climbing up and down the stairs and confine to walking only, especially at this age.

Hi Sir please see left leg and arm and hand over to you as well as well but I don't know.
For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. 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.

Always make sure that you use the therapeutic hot agents when the injury is in the chronic stage. They can also be used prior to physiotherapy or exercise to decrease muscle tension and increase flexibility.

Do x ray of cervical spine. When you on tense your cervical muscle got stiff. Bcz of stiffness of the cervical muscle blood circulation of brain are interrupt so you feel vomiting. When you have any tense you do slowly neck bending leftside to right side. Slowly neck rotation left right. Take hot fermentation on neck for 15 mints.

You need to change your sitting pattern at work. Please ensure you take breaks after every one and half hour, walk around and get back to work. Also your chair height should be adjusted so that your hips and knees are at 90 degrees to each other and your feet in contact with ground. The height of your consumer screen should be such that it's centre is right in line with your eyes to avoid excess stress on your neck. Also start some form of daily activity for 45 mins to maintain the flexibility.

It could be because of osteoarthritis. Take physiotherapy at a good clinic after proper checkup and also do muscles strengthening isometrics after that under expert supervision.
