Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You will have to elaborate your problem as to a detailed discussion of your neck pain which means duration of pain and mode of onset. I would also like to ask you the duration of your upper limb radiating pain and associated symptoms? I would actually like to see a neurological charting of your upper limbs done by a physical therapist ( both motor and sensory charting). Please also tell me about any associated symptoms like fever, weight loss etc. What medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. Please also enclose your investigations like x rays / mri if you have done so that I can see and then advise you accordingly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

As you have an acl injury your stability to the knee joint will be reduced. I would firstly suggest you to wear a knee cap as you walk or climb stairs. Secondly I will list down a few important exercises which you should do daily morning and evening. If you do these exercises you will develop good muscle strength that will support and hold your knee from further damages. Secondly you will improvise on joint proprioception (joint sense) which is important as the knee has to understand various movements. You should also aim for good knee movements and build up the tone of muscles. Let me list the exercises that you could do for the knee. > press your knee down on a towel for about 10 to 15 seconds. You should be in the lying down position. Hold and then release your knee. > press your heel down on a towel again in the lying down position. You must hold the heel in the pressed position for 10 to 15 seconds. > lie down and raise your leg to about 45 degrees and hold for 15 seconds. This will build up quadriceps strength. > start bending your knee in the lying down position and in the sitting position. You must be aware of sitting on a high seat so that your knee will bend much more. > you could use a theraband which has a little resistance so that you can bend your knee with some resistance. > squeeze a towel inbetween your kness in the lying down position. Kindly follow all these exercises so that you will gain good strength to the knee and you attain good stability to the knee so that you can get back to walking jogging and playing once again. As far as possible please dio these exercises so that you could also avoid surgery. Please get back to me after two weeks.

Hello lybrate user, back pain radiating along a leg may be due to prolapsed intervertebral disc or commonly referred to as slipped- disc. You should avoid lifting weights, bending forwards and take bed rest for 2 days if the pain is severe. A consultation may help if you are having tingling, numbness, or weakness in the lower limb/ the leg. Thank you.

Hello lybrate user, leg pain after running is common due to spasm in the leg muscles known as tibialis anterior which functions to pull the foot towards your body during walking, running. When a person runs or exerts an unaccustomed stress there occurs production of lactic acid in the muscle which is quite painful. Relief by: rest ice application stretching exercises will help a lot god bless you.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
If its hernia no treatment other than surgery can cure you. The more you delay the more it shall be difficult to get cure. Apart from that any emergency situation may develop which is known as'strangulation' that is sometimes life threatening or lead to a prolonged treatment in bed following surgery.
