I am a 19 years old male and have backache for last 1 months. What I do please tell me doctor?

M.SC. in Sports Injury, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Hi back pain usually occurs due to prolonged sitting in a bad posture hence the pressure on the back increases and you get back pain as your muscle dont support any undue pressure so for this now you can start with a hot packs for ten minutes twice a day and also start strethening your core muscles.

I feel numbness in my foot when I fold my legs for more than 20 to 30 minutes is this need to treat or is it natural.?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
It is natural and happens with all. Due to pressure, blood supply to lower limb gets compromised. This leads to numbness while sitting with folded legs for long. It becomes normal after few minutes. For prevention, keep changing your posture after 5-10 minutes.

Sir I am suffering from pain in my knee continuously. There is some cramp sound when I sit and stand. It is from past 6 months. Sir give me the right direction.

BPTh/BPT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Noida
Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).
