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. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Nagamaji, Diabetes mellitus is a disease occurring due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to the action of insulin or both. If a person has been diagnosed to have diabetes, then treatment is a must. Only diet control and exercise are not going to be helpful. In fact drug plus diet and exercise are necessary. A person with diabetes should avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also avoid red meat and egg yolk. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Always use whole grain flour avoid refined foods. Caloric intake should be based on Ideal Body Weight, sugar levels and extent of daily physical exercise. For preventing back ache there are specific exercises for back muscles including some stretching routines or asanas, which should be practiced. Knee pain if it is due to osteoarthritis better to consult an orthopedician.

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term follow back pain due to disc problems?

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term follow back pain due to disc problems?
Hi the goal of the injection is pain relief; at times the injection alone is sufficient to provide relief, but commonly an epidural steroid injection is used in combination with a comprehensive rehabilitation program to provide additional benefit. It may give pain relief from 1 week to 1 year.

Dear lybrate-user well, arm pain alone is not enough. We need more information like ant tingling sensation, etc so you need a detailed evaluation and imaging to come to a diagnosis. Then we can treat you accordingly. Till then apply ice and give rest

Hi, I had some joint pains few days ago. So doctor advised me to test blood calcium uric acid and vitamin d 25_oh. The levels are 9. 8 mg/dl, 5. 5 mg/dl and 11. 6 ng/ml. What could be the reason for such deficiency of vitamin d. I take healthy diet and have a active lifestyle. Do I need some more investigation before starting vit d supplement.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
Vit d deficiency is very common. 60, 000 units tablets are as effective as injection you have to take 1000mg calcium along with it. Have vit d test every 2-3 week until normal level is attained. Milk & milk products & green leafy vegetables are good source of calcium.

Heel pain may b plantarfasciitis or calcanean spur or postural. In ny case due to your thyroid being positive thr may b increase in weight which add pressure on your already painful heel. Take sm physiotherapy sessions to relieve the acute pain and try to reduce weight to avoid future recurrence.

Ganglion, if painful can be surgically removed. But you have to remember that they can recur in about 10 - 15 % people. There is no role for aspiration since the recurrence rate is even higher. Sometimes it does disappear on its own.

Hi lybrate-user. You will need to undergo blood tests and xrays to find the cause and severity of the knock knees. If you are facing problems with daily activities or are bothered with the appearance of your legs, you may be advised corrective surgery.
