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.

I started having mild pain in my lower back around 2 months ago. I have a desk job and am on the seat most of the time. I started some exercises for my back and I started feeling much better. However, for the past 1 week, I have been facing some discomfort in my lower right limb. I feel a tingling sensation and numbness sometimes (especially in my right foot). There is a general heaviness in my limb that I have never felt before. I've stopped the exercises. What would be the best course of action to take? What kind of doctor would I need to visit to address this issue?

Thank you for describing your symptoms it helps us to rule out the cause. As per your symptoms it seems you are suffering from sciatica which is due to impingement of sciatic nerve in the lower back. As you mentioned initially you had back ache and now radiating pain its shows impingement of sciatic nerve which causes pain to the areas it passes. As asked, you can consult some neurophysiotherapist who can confirm after diagnosing. In the mean time let me help you with some precautions and home remedies which you can take and will get relief from your pain and discomfort. Precautions: 1. Avoid forward bending, if required then bend your knees first and then bend forward. 2. Avoid weight lifting. 3. Sit in chairs or car seats with proper back support. 4. Place pillow under your legs while sleeping or can opt sidelying position for sleep. 5. Get enough vit d from sun as vit d keep bones strong including spine and other bones. 6. Drink plenty of water to enhance the intervertebral disks. 7. Avoid prolonged standing. 8. Change your sitting position every 15 minutes so that it does not pain. Reatment: 1. Use of cold packs- sometimes piriformis muscle gets tight which cause impingement of sciatic nerve leading to tingling and numbness sensation down into the leg. So ice massage can be given over the area of piriformis muscle or the entire back for 15 min. Once done with cold therapy take rest for 2-3 min to relax the muscles. 2. Since the pain is radiating you can do some below mentioned exercises which will give you immediate relief from pain if done correctly. A) lie on bed on your stomach gently push up with your arms, resting on your forearms. Hold for 5 secs. Now slightly stretch your back muscles and count till 10 and relax. You might feel a slight pain initially but do not worry. Repeat it 15 times. B) now that pain must have gone. And now you can push up onto your hands fully. Slowly lower down back to floor. Perform this atleast 15 times. Again a slight pain will be there initially. Once you will complete this exercise program your pain will be relieved right away. If pain is severe while doing the exercise then stop doing the exercise and immediately consult some physio to take care further. Other exercises that can be done in sciatica pain are: 1. Straight leg raising 2. Knee to chest. 3. Hamstring stretch. 4. Back extensors stretches and strengthening. 5. Gluteal stretch. All the above can be done for 10-15 times with the hold (stretch) time of 5 -6 secs if you did not understand or have any doubt regarding the above treatment plan, good luck and get well soon.

Thx for the query. Neck pain at this region could be due to injury cervical neck pain poor posture during sleep muscular strain. For such pains, take painkillers or muscle relaxants. Apply hot fomentation twice daily. Rest with neck extended. Without pillow. Apply pain oint locally. If still no relief, get your xray cervical spine ap and lateral done to rule out other causes. Hope this helps you.

Go to the orthopedics surgeon and take an Xray of both the feet which will give some clue. Do not use pointed shoes and narrow footwear Always use good support footwear with wide size Look for proper arch support. Soak both feet for 15 minutes in warm water with salt added. Do some stretching exercises for the feet.

I am working in office and continues sit in chair. Then I have back problem how can I solve it.
Hello lybrate user, sitting for long hours in an office is a common cause for back pain. Initially you can take some painkillers for the same. Rest for one or two days may be required. Once adequate pain relief occurs, begin with some physiotherapy exercises for your back like stretching followed a few days later by gradual back muscle strengthening exercises. Your posture should be erect while sitting for long hours with intermittent periods of rest and stretching every hour for 5 to 10 mins. You should also use a chair with a good back rest for the intermittent periods of rest. Maintain your weight by balanced diet and regular exercises. Hope this helps.

Hello lybrate-user a lot of" lifestyle diseases" as we term it today are caused due to stress. If you analyze, most of your health issues will be due to stress. The first way to eliminate stress would be: to meditate, spend some time with yourself and work out the source of the stress. Spend time indulging in a favourite hobby like walking, reading or swimming, whatever helps you relax your mind. The more your mind is relaxed, the joint pain will go away. Avoid highly spiced and oily food. It is advisable to eat a whole food plant based diet rich in greens, beans and legumes. Start by adding healthy foods to your diet, and slowly healthy foods will replace the unhealthy ones. Adding flax seeds (alsi) to your diet is a good option even where pain in knees is concerned as it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, dry roast the seeds, grind to a fine powder and consume. Add leafy greens to get optimal nutrition. For your joint pain, a homoeopathic biochemic will greatly help, you can take: calcarea fluorica 6x, 4 tablets, 3 times a day in half a cup of warm water.

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).

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.

It gets difficult to fully bend my knees as it hurts (the back of my knee). The orthopedic I consulted said that its due to a weight issue.

You must lose some weight weight reduction can not be done over night. You have to take it as a way of life. Do diet control. No sugar in tea, coffee, milk etc. No sweets take small frequent feeds. When you get used to it, skip one meal. You should do non weight bearing yoga exercises. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.
