Hello Doctor! My age is 32. I have bp problem since 2 months and cervical spondylitis. Dr. has asked me to take tablet cardace am 5 daily. Recently I have made some changes in diet to get rid of bp like I am using rock salt instead of table salt. I am having jaggery. I keep drinking warm water with lemon daily 3 to 4 times in a day when I feel my bp is rising. I have eliachi, tomato in salads. I also have digital bp machine at home to keep check on bp. I have noticed whenever my back neck starts painting my bp rises to 140/90 otherwise it is 125/85. Does bp rise due to cervical pain. Which bp numbers are risky. I do not want to keep habit of taking bp tablet. I have kept it handy though that whenever I feel too uneasy then I take it. Are these changes going to help me. Kindly reply with your opinion as to what else can be done to keep BP in control.

The various movements of the body are enabled by the way the bones work with each other and allow for various movements. You cannot perform a single movement without the coordination of the various joints and bones. It is also for the same reason that joint pains are so common. Accidents, sports injuries, play area injuries, and general ageing are some of the causes that can result in joint pain. There are definitely ways to treat them, but at the same time, preventing them also can be helpful. Read on to know some of the ways to prevent and manage joint pains.
Precautionary measure: For children, ensure they are playing under the supervision of an adult and are wearing sufficient protective gear in the form of helmets, wrist/elbow guards, etc. The same goes for athletes who are prone to injuries. It is always prudent to know your physical limits and not stretch your body constantly. This will go a long way in reducing injuries. Always keep a first-aid kit in your sports bag so that you can manage the pain at the earliest.
If prevention does not work, and injuries do happen, some of the ways to manage them are outlined below.
- Cryotherapy/ice therapy: By reducing the blood flow to the affected joint, ice helps in reducing the pain and swelling, which are usually the prominent symptoms of any joint injury. Using an ice pack for 15 to 20 minutes every hour is greatly useful in reducing the pain. This can be continued for the next few days until the pain stops. Avoid ice burns by not applying ice directly on the skin; instead, wrap it in a towel or a soft cotton cloth.
- Oil massages: Natural oils can be used to massage the affected joints which also greatly reduce pain. Oils which contain menthol or give a topical soothing effect are highly recommended. If you are unable to do it at home, seek professional help for the same.
- Hydrotherapy: Warm baths with salts added for extra benefit can provide soothing relief from joint pains. Try these before going to bed to also get good sleep.
- Herbal mixes: Tea bags and other herbal mixes can also be used to relieve joint pains. These may work for some and may not work for others. As these are external applications, you can give it a try.
- Immobilise the area: The affected joint should be immobilised completely or partially, depending on the extent of damage.
- Physiotherapy: While initially the joint needs to be rested, getting into a physical exercise routine with inputs from a physiotherapist is very essential to avoid long-term immobility.
- Medications: Non-steroidal pain killers are another proven method to manage joint pains. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.
Once the patient has a good head and trunk control one needs to work on thecontrol of the lower limb in order to make the patient stand successfully.Activities like unilateral bridging, crawling, kneeling and half kneeling helps in developing good pelvic and leg control.
These exercises are progressed from supported position to unsupported position.Sitting to standing can be practiced by making the patient sit on a chair or cot such that the feet are in proper contact with the ground. The patient is advised to lean slightly such that the centre of gravity is brought between the feet, the therapist should stabilize the knee and support the pelvis there after the patient is encouraged to assume standing posture.
Repetition of this task is essential till the patient masters the activity. The patient may be also taught standing by pulling on to the wall bar or parallel bar but for this the upper limb should be strong, nevertheless in the initial stages the support and assurance by the therapist is very important. Once the patient learns to stand,balance and weight transfer is taught.
Posturography machine provides the important feedback to the patient which helps in improving the standing balance and control. Approximation given to the pelvis or to the shoulder also helps infacilitating stability in standing. In case the patient has tremor then ankle weights, a weighted belt or theraband can help in reducing them.
Once the patient is stable in double support phase, weight transfer is practiced. Lastly in standing the patient is made to make a step with either limb in forward,backward and outward direction as a prerequisite to ambulation.
Gait training may be initially given in a parallel bar with foot marks. Footmarks are essential to reduce the tendency of the patient to walk with wide base of support. He needs constant verbal feedback regarding the step length,body rotation, accessory movements and trunk positions if the functional activity does not present itself as a whole procedural program.
When the patient has to be progressed to walk outside a parallel bar, the therapist decides whether thepatient needs to be given an assistive device, which is based upon the balance of the patient. Although walking aids do provide support to the patient, they also possess a problem because the patient will now need to control the position and movement of the device as well as themselves.Walker or cane may be used depending upon the patient’s comfort.
Various coordination tests were used as assessment tools for incoordination are also used as exercises to improve incoordination. The patient is asked to repeat each activity about 10 to 12 times during each session.
The patient maybe given these exercises as even home exercise program. At home patient can have multiple sessions with good rest in between them to avoid fatigue.Proximal fixation can be improved by using PNF techniques like rhythmic stabilization and approximation.
