Goodevening sir I have understood your question. What I would advice you to do is firstly take a session of 10 days of physiotherapy ultrasound treatment for your knee. Then continue with cold and hot packs daily for about 15 mins. After this your exercising should be in the right way. Please follow my steps for good knee stabilty as I list the exercises below, > isometric quadriceps exercises - that is you should press your knee own on a towel and hold for 10 seconds and then release. > place a rolled towel under your heel and press your heel down on the towel. Place your heel down for 10 seconds and then release. > then squeeze a towel in between your knees for 10 seconds. > lie down and raise your leg upto 45 degrees and not more than that and hold for few seconds. > do 10 knee bending exercises. All these exercises as I have listed below will help you to improve knee strength and stability. You must also be assure to do these exercises daily. Precautions to be taken - - kindly wear a knee cap on both your knees whenever you are going to play. This will protect your knee from any further damages and injury. - next after every game that you play (football) you should take an ice pack for your knee. The popping up sound that your hearing is due to the two joints rubbing against each other. Please follow the advice so that you achieve good health.

You need to strengthen the muscles around your ankle for which you can start with ankle movements with a weight cuff and proprioception and balance exercise.

Back pain after prolonged sitting can be due to sacroilitis or disc degeneration or quadratus lumborum muscle ( a muscle in our back) strain. Initially you can try conservative treatment as described below. If problem persists consult again. 1. Sit with straight back and change posture in between. 2. Take breaks in between work and walk. 3. Do back strengthening and stretching exercises daily. 4. Take simple painkillers like paracetamol if pain is persistent. 5. Apply analgesic cream or gel over back followed by warm fomentation. 6.Do not bend and lift weights. 7. Keep pillow behind knees at night. 8. If back pain is accompanied with radiating leg pain or tingling , numbness or weakness, consult your doctor immediately

Along with physiotherapy you must start Ayurveda treatment for complete benefit. I recommend Panchakarma therapy, medicines and certain changes in you diet and life style. Avoid over use of mobile and lap top, do not watch sleeping T.V in position ,it must be at level of your eyes. Food must be light and easily digestible. There should not be flatulence, heaviness of stomach and burps. Avoid all fired reheated and maida stuff. No tea You can contact us for personal consultation.

Hi lybrate-user Actually it is just a cervical strain, may b due to travelling, working continuously in front of monitor, using pillow, using mobile etc So You need posture correction by physiotherapist, mild analgesics to relieve pain now. Then go for lifestyle modification like stop using pillow, stretching exercises in between work, avoid bending and lifting work, watching TV or reading in sleeping posture.

Hello Sir I have a back bone problem tell me the precautions to how to clean my problem.
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.

Parathyroid Hormone Treatment - How it is Beneficial for Osteoporosis?

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics, Ozone Therapy
Orthopedist, Ghaziabad
Parathyroid Hormone Treatment - How it is Beneficial for Osteoporosis?

What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a medical condition wherein the bone becomes fragile and breaks easily even with a minor fall. The bones of spine, wrists and hips get affected the most. These fractured bones lead to severe pain and can force a person to become immobile. A spine fracture can even lead to a loss of height.

What is parathyroid hormone?
Parathyroid is a naturally occurring hormone that regulates the amount of calcium present in the body. They mitigate the risk of bone breakage in the body for a patient suffering with osteoporosis. These hormones are injected into the body on a daily basis to maintain the normal flow of calcium in the body.

How does the treatment work?
Treatments are available in the form of drugs and injections. A doctor can prescribe drugs, if the patient is at an increased rate of bone breakage. The parathyroid hormone helps to protect the bone from breaking, but have no role when the bone actually breaks. The body has a natural process of breaking a bone and rebuilding it by itself. Osteoporosis sets in motion when this process of bone formation is disturbed.

When does a doctor prescribe hormonal treatment?
If a patient has undergone a number of vertebral compression fractures and the condition has not improved, a doctor might suggest to undergo parathyroid hormone treatment. The treatment requires nursing support due to a patient’s delicate bone condition. A maximum dosage of 20 micro grams of parathyroid can be injected for a time duration not exceeding 2 years.

Things to know about the treatment:

  1. Be informed: It is good to be well informed about the course of the treatment, treatment duration, plausible problems etc. This will help a patient to be on top of the decision making process. The helpline of the 'National Osteoporosis Society' can be reached to understand the preparation required for a patient to undergo the treatment.
  2. Take the right dosage at the right time: Parathyroid injections should be injected on a daily basis for a maximum time period of 2 years. These injections are taken daily at the same time. It should be ensured that none of the injections are skipped without the prior approval of a doctor. The injection, which lasts for 28 days, needs to be stored in a refrigerator. In case a patient is travelling, special bags are available that has space for storing gel packs.
  3. Side effects: Most patients do not report any side effects, but they do exist. Possible side effects include dizziness, arthralgia, depression and headache. These symptoms often suggest that your body is reacting to the parathyroid hormone treatment. A doctor may or may not prescribe any further drugs to address these symptoms.

You need to take some rest. Apply ice pack 5 times daily for 10 minutes every time. Some medicines will help. It will be great if you start regular exercises to avoid such pain in future.

There could be other causes of your symptoms. It could even be a blood supply issue. You will need to be re evaluated for the symptoms. Curtailing smoking /tobacco/ alcohol if any will help.
