Hi I am 38 years old male suffering continuous pain over quadriceps muscle since 15 years. What is line of treatment and diagnosis.

Dear lybrate-user. I think you have a referred pain from spine. It is unusual to have pain for so long and it will not show up locally if there is some local cause. You need detailed evaluation and imaging to come to a diagnosis. Once diagnosis is made we can treat you accordingly.

Do a massage on your back with oil named mahadhanwantarum taila. Make it warm and massage with someone's help. After that, give hit fomentation with a hot bottle or a cloth pack filled with salt and heated. Try to keep your posture erect always. Don't kick bike etc if possible for few days. Avoid jerks during journey. Increase calcium intake in form of warm milk, capsicum, paneer etc. When pain subsides, start practicing yoga asanas daily for back ache under guidance. That will prevent reoccurrence.

Apply ice in the painful area which would definitely help to greater extent. And you can wear elbow brace which would help you to keep your elbow warm and will give you protection.

Osteoarthritis - Exercises You Must Follow to Ease the Pain

Osteoarthritis is a disease that affects the joints and bones of the body and causes a steady loss of cartilage. It causes deterioration in the constituency of calcium, drying of the synovial fluid within the joints that lubricates and eases movements and makes the bones brittle. It also involves declining in the cartilage. This disease, that mostly affects women, worsens over the time and should be treated as early as possible. It causes deformation of the joints and can lead to hard bone cysts. The muscles around the joints get weaker. They lose their ability to bear weight, causing extreme pain.

The form of arthritis which is characterized by a growing pain that gradually wears down the joint cartilages is called osteoarthritis. Usually, people over the age of 40 are most commonly affected by this type of arthritis.

The symptoms of osteoarthritis include are as follows:

  1. Sudden and severe pain in the joints
  2. Sudden pain after performing a stressful job with the pain subsiding once you are on rest
  3. Severe pain after moving the arms and legs for a long time; the pain becoming worse in particular weather conditions
  4. Joints get stiff after waking up in the morning but improve slowly as the day progresses
  5. Pain in the thighs and groin region, coupled with swelled joints and joints which get stiff after rest

Physiotherapy For Osteoarthritis

Physiotherapy alias physical therapy is considered as one of the fastest growing allied areas of present generation medicine. Being an important rehabilitative service needed in a community and a vital therapeutic supplement of the medical profession, it's the treatment of diseases and disabilities using physical exercises, heat radiations, cold therapy, hydrotherapy, acupuncture and therapeutic massage.

A physiotherapist first assesses the patient's condition by performing various tests thoroughly. Once he diagnoses the illness, next thing is to design physical treatment depending on the type and severity of his condition. The treatment can consist of exercise programs such as water exercising and group exercising, massages and joint manipulation that plays a vital role in enhancing the mobility of muscles and joints, reducing stiffness as well as inflammation, and pain and muscle education when there is more severe muscular complications. Physiotherapy for Osteoarthritis involves certain exercises. Below give are some of the most common exercises for osteoarthritis-

  1. Hot compresses help to reduce pain and swelling in the joints and provides relief.
  2. Knee contractions and extensions.
  3. Ankle and wrist rotations.
  4. Hamstring stretch exercises may be helpful in some cases, though such stretching exercises must be performed with assistance and guidance from an experienced physiotherapist.
  5. Straight leg stretching.
  6. It is important to provide adequate rest to your joints and not exert yourself.
  7. Hydrotherapy; exercising in warm water, can be extremely beneficial and relaxing. It improves mobility and strength.
  8. Half Squats: This exercise helps to strengthen the knee and leg muscle.

Mam this doesn't seem to be a rheumatological problem. Just one month pain, need not worry much. First consult your family physician for these issues and he might refer to concerned specialist if necessary.

My son aged 34 years met with a freak accident a few months back i.e. His 2 wheeler bike fell on his right knee. Nothing was found in X-Ray but on scanning it was found that there was ligament tear. Though as advised by the Doctor doing physiotherapy at home still the pain persists.

Flat Foot Pain - Ways It Can Be Treated!

Flat Foot Pain - Ways It Can Be Treated!

Excessive and persistent pain in the feet as well as the ankle joints could point at the existence of a condition known as flat foot pain. This happens due to the difference between a normal foot and a flat foot. While a normal foot will have an upward arch under the foot, right in the middle, the flat foot does not have such a support. This arch is usually formed by the tendons and ligaments that help in rendering support to the foot as well as stabilising the rest of the body. When these tendons and ligaments become weak, the arch begins to diminish before finally disappearing, which leaves the patient with a flat foot.

This can be a painful condition. Let us look at the ways in which it may be cured.

  1. Foot Wear: When you are suffering from this condition, it is important to wear comfortable and supportive foot wear like shoes, sandals and slippers which can support the arch and help in giving stability to the rest of the body. Besides looking for shoes that will provide the right amount of comfort, one can also use additional support like insoles that will help in giving comfort while you are walking, standing or running.
  2. Orthotics: These are tools that can be recommended by your doctor in order to help in minimising the pressure that one feels in the foot. The orthotics usually distributes this pressure by giving much needed additional support to the arch of the foot. These tools also help in realigning the foot’s ankle with its bones as well as the joints, which can help in successfully treating this condition to a great extent. They are usually customised as per your exact foot shape and size, as well as the problem you are facing, so that you have plenty of support when you are using your feet for varied activities.
  3. Arch inserts and wraps: If your normal shoes are lacking the arch support that you require for flat feet, then you can also invest in arch inserts and wraps which will reduce the pain and prevent it from reoccurring. Also, these will help you to remain standing or walking for longer periods of time, as they add that extra bit of support to your feet for normal functioning.
  4. Surgery: If the various non surgical treatments do not help you over a period of a few months, then it may be time to speak with your podiatrist or orthopaedic specialist so that you can go in for a surgery that will fix this problem. This kind of surgery will help in stabilising the feet and ankle bones by applying corrective foot support.

Hello, it is natural to get belly fat when you are on complete bed rest. -drink warm water instead of cold. -drink warm water with lemon every morning, -cut your daily calorie intake by 25% in a way that your body does not feel weak.(example, make healthy substitutes for unhealthy snacks or eat steamed rice instead of pulav etc.) -do kapal bhati for ten minutes every evening, it comes under pranayam, is a breathing process that will help you loose belly fat.
