Posture And Pain

Poor posture while sitting, standing, lying down or moving around is a major cause of back pain. Sitting and standing for long time put considerable pressure on the lower back, in fact, standing exerts up to five times more pressure than lying down, and sitting is even more strenuous.

Dear, Everyday take warm water in tub, add a pinch of salt into it. Dip it for 30mins. Take out your toes and dry it properly. Just put a thin filament of any ointment like moov. Volini etc n wear socks for 35mins. Do not rub it. Do it for 7days. See the difference then. Thanks.

Advice. 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).

Ankle pain. Our suggestion would be to do hot water fermentation along with Cold (ice) therapy. You shall also keep a pillow under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes.

I have regular pain behind my neck near the backbone whenever I lower my head for long time.

Physiotherapist,
Ligament injury most certainly. Get an MRI to reverify. If grade one tear, get Physiotherapist help to heal. If grade 2or more get surgery done to prevent damaging your joint further.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. My initial advise will be to get yourself examined by a general surgeon or a urologist for testicular pain because there are some causes which we need to rule out. About your back pain with associated leg pain, I can advise that stop your weight lifting for some time till your pain subsides, intensive physical therapy in form of tens as a modality, you can start with neuropathic medications, gentle anti inflammatory medication, but first priority is to get an opinion from a general surgeon and then you can come back to me. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
