7 Step Rehabilitation
We have created a revolutionary 7 Step Program to eliminate your back pain and keep it away. Through this program you can recover fully and keep future pain at bay.

To fully recover from an injury or an episode of physical pain everybody needs to move through 7 stages of recovery. Future injury, greater health costs and ongoing frustration are assured if shortcuts are taken or treatment is prematurely ceased.

Every individual will commence at different stages of this process. Some will move more quickly through some stages whilst others move more slowly. Everybody is different.

Step 1 - Tissue Normalization
First we bring the injury under control, so your tissues can begin to heal. This helps the injured part to function smoothly with the rest of the body.
Step 2 - Muscle Activation
An injury is extremely painful, and makes movement difficult. By activating injured muscles early, you'll recover sooner.
Step 3 - Static Control
Develop sufficient strength and control of your injured body part to hold a neutral position whilst other parts are moving.
Step 4 - Dynamic Control
Develop the strength to control the injured body part during movement. By increasing endurance, you'll be able to maintain dynamic control.
Step 5 - Functional Rehabilitation
You're well on your way to full recovery. This stage customises your rehabilitation to your specific needs.
Step 6 - Functional Fitness
This stage is ensures you have the necessary physical fitness, power, endurance, body awareness, strength and flexibility to perform physically.
Step 7 - Maintenance Program
To make sure you don't experience a recurring injury, we tailor a program to keep you fighting fit, monitor your progress and continue to supervise rehabilitation.

I am 75 years old woman I have severe joint pain in my knees. I think its arthritis problem. What shall I do?
Hello lybrate user, arthritis of knee joint is quite common at this age. The management would depend on your symptoms. Firstly, pain would be your major symptom. If you mild pain which is not affecting your daily activities you can be treated with anti-inflammatory medications, painkillers, physiotherapy to improve the muscle strength around your knee joint and increase your range of movement. If pain is not adequately controlled and you still have difficulty in your daily activities then you might want to think of some surgical management. Secondly, if severe stiffness hinders your daily activities and does not improve with physiotherapy exercises then again you might require an earlier surgical intervention. Thirdly, if you already have a severe deformity at the knee joint then again you might benefit with an earlier surgical intervention. I would also advise you certain life style modifications such as weight reduction, avoiding heavy loads on your knees such as climbing stairs, squatting, sitting cross legged. But must continue your regular exercise and walking. If it pains then do it with breaks in-between. Surgical intervention would be undertaken only if you do not respond to above therapy. Hope this helps.

Hi. I have gone through your question about back pain. I understand your concern and would like to help you out. First thing about your question I would like to tell you is medical history by patient should be elaborate not short. This doesn't help doctors to diagnose the problem as there are many causes for back pain. Due to inadequate history, I'll tell you general measures to control back pain. Do not lift weight or do not bend forward. Use hot fomantation twice daily for few days. Do back strengthening exercises.

L have been suffering from back pain I want to perfect treatment of this problem.

Hi I am suffering from knee problem since one months.
So please suggest me.

Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury or some other medical conditions including arthritis, patellar tendinitis, acl injury, knee bursitis, torn meniscus, gout and infections. Try some home remedies for your pain- - ice is useful for the control of pain and swelling. It can be applied to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. The swollen knee should be elevated above the level of the heart while icing. -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting jogging aerobics, dancing playing sport specific exercises will help you improve range of motion, strength, and endurance. It is especially important to focus on strengthening and stretching your quadriceps since these muscles are the main stabilizers of your kneecap. Core exercises may also be recommended to strengthen the muscles in your abdomen and lower back. Also maintaining a healthy body weight to avoid overstressing your knees are very important. -a full history of your problem should be taken and your movements assessed by a physiotherapist. Please consult a physiotherapist for the same. Best wishes.

Hey, back pain can be due to wrong posture (occupational) or stiffness in your back or lack of strength. What you should do is start doing stretches and strengthening exercise for your back. Take ift sessions from nearby physiotherapist and start exercising on regular basis. Understand ergonomics from physiotherapist.

althought the xray is normal the pain would be due to damage to the underlying cartilage which will not be seen on a xray. Ice, rest and elevation helps. once the acute pain subsides you have to do quadriceps strengthening exercises.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).
