Firstly you should start with active exercises for shoulder in slow motion. Do the strengthening exercises for all your muscles of the shoulder. Then you should do stretching and make sure you gradually progress to light weights. These are resisted exercises which will help you to build up strength. Shoulder is a very important joint in the body as it can perform a lot of movements. Do not ignore the exercises make sure you do these exercises everyday at twice a day. Infact a physiotherapist can help you to to train you with the exercises because your a player you do it the right way so that you can get back onto the field soon. Important notice kindly take rest during your sessions of exercises atleast for 10 days because doing the exercises can cause a little pain and then when you go back to the feild and play and exercises the pain will not reduce. Kindly follow the instructions. Thankyou.

Hi I can understand your problem. It may be due to nerve compression at lumber spine. # relax & stay positive. # take hot and cold foementation. # change sleeping position. # use lumber support. # take break every 20 minutes. # do strengthening exercise of back and core muscles not all back pains are same, you need specific treatment plan according to your symptoms.

it is 8 weeks since i met with in a car accident. My ribs are fractured and there is minimal displacement of the sternum.Pain has reduced totally. However during coughing/sneezing I feel pain and slight heaviness. How long will it take to completely recover and what are the exercises to be done to improve .

You can do assisted coughing that relieves pain during cough. You can consult physiotherapist and do breathing exercises. At home you can do pranayama or light yoga also that improves flexibility. It may take 6 month to 1 year depends on how you do exercises.

I think you are asking about shoulder pain. Many people have shoulder pain. It is usually because of impingement or Rotator cuff tear.

Things to know about Hernia

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

Things to know about Hernia

Hernia is not life threatening, but is commonly experienced by a number of people. You will experience hernia when an organ pushes through the muscles or tissues surrounding them. A hernia can occur anywhere in the body. The most common areas affected by it are the abdominal area, upper thigh, groin and belly button. In most cases, a surgery is required to treat this condition.

There are 4 common types of hernias. These are:

  1. Inguinal hernia: This is the most common type of hernia and affects more men than women. It occurs when the intestines push through the lower abdominal wall into the inguinal canal. 
  2. Hiatal hernia: This commonly affects elderly people and occurs when the stomach pushes upwards through the diaphragm. It may also affect children if they are born with a congenital birth defect. 
  3. Umbilical hernia: This affects children and occurs when the intestine pushes through abdominal wall near the bellybutton. 
  4. Incisional hernia: This occurs after an abdominal surgery when the intestine pushes through the scar or other weak tissues. 

A hernia can develop overnight or over a period of time. It can be triggered by many factors that cause weakening of muscles and strain the body. 

Some of these are:

  1. Congenital defects such as the abdominal wall failing to close properly
  2. Age
  3. Persistent coughing
  4. Surgical errors or injuries
  5. Pressure on the abdomen caused by pregnancy
  6. Straining as a result of constipation
  7. Collection of fluid in the abdomen
  8. Heavy weight lifting
  9. Excess weight gain

If anyone in your family has a hernia, you are at a high risk of suffering from one as well. Being obese and smoking can also increase your risk. Cystic fibrosis can also indirectly trigger a hernia by causing a persistent cough. Sometimes a hernia has no symptoms. A bulge in the affected area is the most common symptom of a hernia. 

Some other symptoms that you may notice are:

  1. Pain in the affected area
  2. Weakness or pressure in the abdomen
  3. A burning or aching sensation in the affected area
  4. Acid reflux
  5. Chest pain
  6. Difficulty swallowing 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
