: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

I have effect with scoliosis. What are the precautions in order to reduce severe back pain.

D.P.T
Physiotherapist, Hyderabad
Dear user. If you want the precautions to be taken then here I suggest you for these eating foods to avoid and reduce scoliosis. Rich food sources of calcium include: collard greens, kale, spinach, sardines, tofu, dairy products, almonds and sesame seeds. Vitamin d is produced by your skin in response to intense sunshine, although many people try to avoid the sun. Vitamin d isn't found in many foods, but the best sources are: fatty fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel), fish oils, beef liver, hard cheese and egg yolks.

Always make sure that you use the therapeutic hot agents when the injury is in the chronic stage. They can also be used prior to physiotherapy or exercise to decrease muscle tension and increase flexibility.

Constant pain just under and between the neck and the shoulder. Keeps coming back and forth.

MPTh/MPT, MSC CVR, MANUAL THERAPIST
Physiotherapist,
Its trapezitis. Apply ice pack. Go to your nearest physiotherapist. Take ultrasound/ift/laser/ met/mfr/trigger point release/dry needling/kinesiology taping/theracise & you shall be fine in 1 day. Keep going and coming is because of your ill habits. You do not address weak muscles and neither you correct your neck posture. Address the concern comprehensively. Also assess your pillow for sleep, must have a pillow, width of your shoulder to neck.

MSc

Here are some diet tips 1. Eat high fibre food avoids eating food in simple sugar form 2. Eat fresh fruits instead of fruit juices. Fruits are good source of fibre except banana mango, chiku. 3. Try to avoid deep fried food and oil containing food. Control your fat consumption in your routine diet 4. Avoid bakery products, sweets. 5. Have plenty of water at least 3 lt/day 6. At least half hour walk/day. All are common things but for definite result you need individual diet and exercise schedule

I'm suffering from left shoulder pain. It seems like the muscle pain. It happens whenever I make arm movements in vertically upward direction or open it up horizontally. Reason could be the gym. Due to this, I'm not able to continue my gym exercises. Second reason could be the sleeping posture. Please suggest. Thanks.

Narrow disc space (pid) on mri does not necessasarily mean operation. Most of them can be managed without operation. This is quite a common condition. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take caldikind plus (mankind)1tab odx10days paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days do back(spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take

Rheumatoid arthritis is a self limiting disease. Acute phase can be managed with medicines. Physiotherapy helps in preventing contractures & deformities. Keep your moral up! any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days caldikind plus (mankind) 1tab odx10days you will need other supportive medicines also. Do knee exercises it may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore.

Hi doctor, my mother is suffering from severe knee pain for both legs. Is there some laser treatment available to cure the same. She does not wish to go for knee replacement surgery and we want to get this sorted asap. Revert awaited Rgds Vijay.

Laser treatment in physiotherapy works for deep seated pain, but if there is extreme degeneration of the cartilage and bones, knee replacement is inevitable as it is a non reversible condition.
