EXERCISES IN STANDING
In standing the patient is trained to achieve static balance by giving perturbation or by making the person stand on a wobble board or tilt board. Balance should also be trained in step stance. The patient is trained to shift weight alternately on both the lower limbs. Standing should be encouraged by keeping the affected leg slightly behind the normal leg to facilitate more weight-bearing on that side.
Dynamic balance can be trained in standing by teaching various reaching out activities and also by teaching the patient rotation of the trunk and forward bending exercises. These exercises also help in development of automatic adaptation of the muscles which is important for performance of many activities.
The patient balance should be trained for anticipatory response.The following exercises may be given in standing:The therapist stands behind the patient and hold the pelvis such that the affected pelvis is kept in protraction. The patient is then encouraged to place the affected leg forward and then take it back. This is repeated for 10 times. Similarly the patient is encouraged to place the affected leg to the sides (abduction) and then come to the neutral position for ten times. These activities help the patient during swing phase of the gait cycle.
In the same position, the therapist trains the patient to take weight on the affected leg and place the normal leg forward and then back. This is repeated ten times. Similarly abduction movement can also be trained for 10 times. This activity encourages proper weight bearing of the affected limb.
Symmetrical throwing activities should be encouraged to increase the balance reaction and also to increase the stability limit which will help the patient in proper postural control.
Unilateral stance on the affected leg should be given to the patient which will facilitate isometric work of the abductors to prevent Trendeleburg’s sign.Once the patient is comfortably doing the above exercises then he may be trained to walk in between the parallel bars in a near normal gait pattern. Side walking and backward walking should also be given.Then progressed to walking unaided on the level ground.Treadmill training or using a static cycle to train the gait in hemi plegic patient, especially in the early stages, has been found to improve the gait pattern to a remarkable extent.
Treadmill walking with partial weight supporting harness has been useful in rehabilitating gait in hemiplegics.
The patient should be trained to walk in the environment which he will come across in his day to day life like walking on uneven surface, staircase climbing, walking in the market place, etc.Once the patient develops various components of movement available to perform his activities of daily living the basic functional activities should be directly practiced to gain independency and accuracy.
Repeating each functional task again and again over a period of time helps in faster learning of those task by formation of the engrams in the brain.

A couple of decades ago, medical professionals believed that a lot of females could not climax at all. There are a number of reasons for this. It is easy for the male to know when he has achieved an orgasm, which usually happens with ejaculation, which is quite evident. For the females, on the other hand, it is not so evident. It is a perceived feeling and while the media showcase it in a particular way, reality is far moved from it.
There are various reasons why it is very difficult to pin this down. Orgasms are not just an elusive feeling for the woman, it is an elusive topic for the medical professionals too. Read on to know some of the common causes (more beliefs or notions) about this and some simple but effective ways of managing this.
- Private topic: Girls are very shy compared to boys and both their exposure to sex education and discussion about this is limited compared to boys. We might tend to think of it as common in India alone, but this is true across a vast number of countries. We are not alone! This shyness continues into their later years too, and unless transformed by the partner, it may continue to be a topic that is shunned.
- Purpose: Sex is more deemed as a form of procreation rather than for sex. Therefore, while sex is necessary for conception, orgasm is not. This is one more reason (strange but true) that orgasm is very elusive for a woman.
- Psychological factors: It could be guilt from past relationships or fear of past abuse. It could be fear of losing control or fear of coming across as vulnerable. For any of these reasons, women can have difficulties climaxing during the act.
Whatever the cause of the problem, the first step in coping up with the issue is to acknowledge the issue. Being a private topic, this is not something that is going to draw the person towards medical help. However, this needs to be discussed frankly with the partner or with the doctor. Getting the partner involved removes a lot of psychological barriers (guilt, fear, anxiety, etc.) This would result in natural ironing out of issues, improving the performance of both the people involved.
If that does not happen, seeking professional help, be it medical help to correct physical issues or counselling, is the next suggestion. A frank discussion will do wonders, and what was once elusive can be well within your reach.

Migraine headache is characterized by a severe headache usually affecting one side of the head. There are other symptoms along with headache like nausea/vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound. Some patients experience neurological phenomena like changes in vision, temporary loss of sensation and altered sensation, a phenomenon known as an aura (flashes of light, zigzag patterns, bright spots, tingling in the arms and the legs). Migraine headache can last for 2 to 3 days.
Symptoms: The symptoms depend on the stage of a migraine attack. The stages of a migraine attack can be:
- Prodrome, Aura, Headache or attack, and Postdrome.
- Prodorme: One to two days prior to the migraine attack, patient may experience;
- Mood swings.
- Cravings for food.
- Increased yawning.
- Stiff neck.
- Constipation and frequent thirst and urination.
In case of an aura (during or before a migraine), there may be visual, motor, speech, and sensory illusions and disturbances such as,
- Loss of vision.
- A strange sensation of needles pricking an arm or a leg.
- One side of the body becomes weak and numb.
- There are visual illusions such as the appearance of flashes of light, zigzag patterns, bright spots.
- There is a problem in hearing and speaking.
- In some cases, there may be a hemiplegic migraine (the limb becomes weak).

- A throbbing pain on either one or both sides of the head
- Blurred vision, light-headedness.
- Nausea and vomiting
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Sensitivity to touch and smell (though rare)
In Postdrome (after a migraine), there can be
- Mood swings.

An amalgamation of environmental and genetic factors may be responsible for a migraine. Trigger varies for each patient:
- Stress and extreme physical exertion
- Alcohol and caffeinated drinks and beverages
- Salty and processed foods
- Altered sleeping habits
- Hormonal alterations in women (Constant fluctuation in the level of oestrogen)
- Oral contraceptives and certain vasodilators (nitroglycerin)
- Preservatives like MSG (monosodium glutamate) and Aspartame (sweetener)
- Sunshine, certain odours, travel, etc can trigger migraine.
Treatment and Prevention:
- Medicines under supervision to abort an attack of migraine and special drugs to stop attacks.
- Lifestyle changes are helpful to decrease attacks:
- Avoid your trigger for migraine.
- Follow regular sleep -wake cycle.
- Regular exercise, meditation.
- Avoidance of alcohol, caffeine containing beverages.
- Other treatment options that can be availed from pain specialist:
- Transcutaneous supraorbital nerve stimulation
- Intramuscular stimulation.
- Botulinum toxin injection.
- Occipital nerve block.
