My friend is 29 years old. She gets frequent pain in her upper back, lower back and hip. We have shown her to many doctors and some of them detected it as firbromylgia however others said its spondylitis. He also feel down once and the coccyx (tail bone) was injured badly. Waking up in morning is very difficult for her as she faints frequently in the morning and some time in day time also. Please suggest the best treatment for this.

You can take it once a month regularly. Alternate solution is sunlight exposure daily at afternoon 11am to 2 pm for 15 to 30 minutes depending upon exposure. Direct exposure to skin is required not through clothes.

Drink a glass of warm milk daily. Secondly if you have sensitive skin - apply Vaseline on the finger first and then masturbate. Due to hormonal changes the things are happening and it will settle down soon. For further queries get back to me.

Osteoporosis and Exercises

Fellowship in Neurological Rehabilitation, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
Osteoporosis and Exercises

Hello Friends,

What is osteoporosis?

The components of the word 'osteoporosis' literally mean 'porous bones' - 'osteo' is for bones, and 'porosis' means porous - helpfully describing this condition that results in reduced bone density and increased fragility of the bones.The thinning of the bones in osteoporosis, combined with the formation of weaker bone crystals, puts people at a higher risk of Fall and  Fractures.

It can affect anyone of any gender, but it is particularly prevalent in postmenopausal women due to the sudden decrease in protective oestrogen levels after menopause.

Signs and Symtom

Bone loss that develops slowly, leading to osteoporosis, does not cause any symptoms or outward signs.

As such, a patient may only discover that they have osteoporosis due to an unexpected fracture after a minor fall or a slip or strain - or even a simple cough or sneeze - may result in a fracture.Breaks in the spine can lead to altered posture, with compressed vertebrae creating the stooped appearance often seen in older people

Diagnosis

  • Osteoporosis may be diagnosed directly through the use of a bone scan that measures bone mineral density (BMD). Central or peripheral DXA.
  • Osteoporosis is diagnosed when the T-score is -2.5 or below.
  • Other methods of measuring bone density include x-ray, ultrasound, and CT scan

Treatment

It is important to ensure the cause of low bone denisty has been properly diagnosed as the treatment will vary greatly.the decision about what treatment you need – if any – will also be based on a number of other factors. These include your:

  • age
  • sex
  • risk of fracture
  • previous injury history

Treating osteoporosis involves treating and preventing fractures and using medication to strengthen bones.

How Can a Physical Therapist Help?

Your physical therapist can develop a specific program based on your individual needs to help improve your overall bone health, keep your bones healthy, and help you avoid fracture. Your physical therapist may teach you.

  • Specific exercises : to build bone or decrease the amount of bone loss
  • Proper posture
  • How to improve your balance so as to reduce your risk of falling
  • How to adjust your environment to protect your bone health

 Typically, exercises are performed 2 to 3 times a week as part of an overall fitness program.Your exercise routine should include exercises in each of the following areas:

  • Strengthening exercise
  • postural exercise
  • balance exercise
  • weight-bearing
  • Flexibility exercise

1) Strength training

Strength training is a type of exercise with the goal of improving muscular strength. It involves performing movements against resistance; it is sometimes referred to as resistance training. Exercise bands, weights, machines or even your own body weight can be used for resistance. Strength training may increase spine and hip bone mineral density.

2) Posture training

Posture training involves paying attention to how the parts of our body are aligned with each other. Some kyphosis, or curvature of the upper back, is normal, but fractures or weak back extensor muscles can cause the spine to curve more than usual, resulting in an exaggerated kyphosis or excessively curved upper back.Attention to alignment during activity and at rest, along with exercises targeting the back extensor muscles, can improve the alignment of the spine. Flexion exercises are often CONTRAINDICATED. .

3) Balance training

Balance training exercises are those that challenge your balance.Balance exercises are also important to incorporate to further reduce the risk of falls Examples include:Shifting weight to the limits of support (e.g., moving your weight more to one foot than another).

Physical activities like Tai Chi, that involve balance and coordination may also reduce falls and fractures.

Tai Chi is a very safe and effective low impact form of exercise that improves balance and reduces the risk of falls.

4) Weight bearing Aerobic (water) physical activity

Aerobic exercise  is a rhythmic activity that you do for at least 10 minutes at a time continuously and it increases your heart rate and makes you breathe harder than you usually do during your daily activities.For individuals with osteoporosis, we often recommend weight-bearing aerobic exercise or physical activity like walking or cycling or swiming or guided exercises to be done in swimmimng pool

5 flexibility exercise:

These can help improve the individuals overall physical function and postural control

Start by speaking with a physical therapist or consult me to ensure you are choosing safe , specific  and appropriate physical activities for you.
Remember: if you have osteoporosis, aerobic exercise is not enough. Strength training and balance training are essential to maintain bone and muscle, and prevent falls.

 

"Osteoporosis is not a inevitable part of aging it is preventable.So it is vital that all of us,start taking care of our bones now, before its too late"..quote by Camila Parler Bowles

Thanks

I feel suicidal for no reason, I often try to slit my wrist. What do I do to make these thoughts go away?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I feel suicidal for no reason, I often try to slit my wrist. What do I do to make these thoughts go away?
They are not just thoughts alone; there is a lot of unexpressed anger lurking within you that needs to desperately express itself. This anger is turned inwards and the result is this tendency to hurt yourself or terminate yourself. Whenever it seems that there is no specific reason, then it is bound to be something from early childhood that needs to be dealt with. Meet with a counselor and identify the feeling and thoroughly expend it out of your system. Your parents will know a lot of factors that may have contributed to this situation. Life is extremely precious and no one has a right to willfully end it unless there are very justifiable reasons. If you visit a geriatric ward in any hospital you will know the premium that is placed on survival, and how every possible way you can stretch life is attempted on frail and weak bodies that are in the twilight of their lives. You must also show that regard for your life, especially when you are that young and life is just beginning. You are obviously a bankrupt person spiritually: no spiritually sound person will contemplate suicide. Life is a gift of God and to be held in high esteem and preserved at all costs. You are probably depressed and when people are in that state, life looks miserable, hopeless, and futile. Depression can be resolved and if you have not used all the options to resolve depression, you would be inadvertently throwing away your precious life, never to get it back again. This life is an opportunity and since you have probably not utilized it well for various unfounded reasons please look at it with other people for other options and it will seem better. People who contemplate suicide are lonely people: just addressing that problem alone you will find good reasons to live. Failed or the threat of failed relationships are at the bottom of most suicides. A newer theory about suicide, devised by an American psychologist called Thomas Joiner, states that three main factors can cause someone to turn to suicide. They are: •A perception (usually mistaken) that they are alone and no one cares about them. •A feeling (again, usually mistaken) that they are a burden on others and that people would be better off if they were dead. •Fearlessness towards pain and death. Fearlessness poses the biggest risk that someone will commit a successful suicide attempt – they may fear the pain more than the fear of death. Go out there and conquer the world and don't ever let it get the better of you, ever.
