Is Your Knee Causing You Back Pain: Correct Your Knees

Is Your Knee Causing You Back Pain: Correct Your Knees

IS YOUR KNEE CAUSING YOU BACK PAIN: CORRECT YOUR KNEES

PROBLEM POSTURE :     

OSTRICH STANDING.      

a.       Knee joints are pushed back into a locked or even backward bent position,forcing increasing weight through the heels.

b.     This knee position tends to cause the same pelvic and low back position described in problem posture . Tipped forward with increased low back arch.

c.      Chest is depressed, “sitting” on the pelvis.

d.     The head and neck will tend to drop forward and down, following the chest position.

ADJUSTMENT EXERCISE: unlock the knees, level the pelvis, head/chest float.

a.      Unlock the knees: relieve the backward strain and let your knees shift forward slightly, over the front of your ankles. This will be easier if  your are slight heels as opposed to flats.

b.     Level the pelvis as described under problem posture number

 c.      Allow your chest to expand and lift with air as you breathe in; allow it to stay floating up tall over your level as your exhale.

d.     Allow your head to float up tall and level, centered over your upright chest- as if it were filled with helium or being pulled upward by a string,with no effort on your part. 

PROBLEM ALIGNMENT:     SLUMPING WITH YOUR ABDOMEN LEADING OUT OVER YOUR “SKIS”

a.      Your pelvis and abdomen are leaning out in front, forcing increased weight through the balls of the feet.

b.     The upper body may compensate by slumping: chest “sitting” on the abdomen and head dropped down and forward.

ADJUSTMENT EXERCISE: centering the pelvis, head/chest float

a.      Bring your pelvis back, centering it over your base of support so that you feel increased weight through your heels.

b.     Allow the chest and head to lift when you inhale and to stay floating up when you exhale. Imagine a string lifting you up tall and vertical, back over your heels.

c.      Lift your lower abdomen up and in to help pull you back over your heels and lift you up tall.

Hello this could either represent a snapping band on the outside of the knee or a cartilage injury that you might have incurred while playing or running. Kindly refrain from running, attempt physiotherapy and if no relief in a couenof days. Plan a MRI of the knee.

Hi Thanks for your query and Welcome to Lybrate. I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. Actually pain at calf/Leg region can be due to many reasons , commonly it is muscular in nature but it can also be due to Tendons, Nerves, Blood vessels etc. My advise to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be : - Ice packs application intensively with elevation of your limbs at night - Take a short course of anti-inflammatory medication as per your body's suitability - Stop your physical activity till pain completely subsides - Intensive physical therapy, training and proper muscle conditioning once pain has subsided - Slow resumption of physical activities with proper pre activity warm up and stretching of muscles and short increments in duration of physical activity each day as per pain tolerance. - We will get some blood tests for you - Serum Vitamin D and serum Potassium levels, ESR and CRP Once you have all these reports then you can contact me as i can advise you for proper supplementation Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

My mothers right thumb has suddenly swelled and its paining. What can be it? Provide me treatment for this.
There could be a few different things going on. A skin infection is certainly a possibility. Often these infections start with small cuts that you can't even see (or bites). They can also occur through small infections at the nail fold, which can occur if you have frequent manicures or if you bite your nails. If you notice that the skin is red and warm, then these are signs that you may have this type of infection. If so, you should see your primary care doctor immediately. If the infection is severe, you may need oral antibiotics to bring the infection under control. If the infection is limited just to the nail fold, this is called a paronychia and it can often be managed just with warm soaks and topical antibiotic creams. Your doctor will be able to help your sort this out. Another possibility, if this is not a skin infection, is that you could have a joint inflammation. This would be more like if the redness and swelling is centered around one of the joints in the finger rather than in the overall skin of the finger. Regardless, the first step is to go see your doctor!

I am s software engineer. Some days I have back pain. please tell me a solution to avoid this issue.

I am s software engineer. Some days I have back pain. please tell me a solution to avoid this issue.
I would say back care and ergonomics are the solution to prevent your problem. Sit straight. Your ear, shoulder and hip should be in a same line. Choose a desk where you can rest your forearms till elbow and work with your neck straight. Choose a chair that does not slouch your back. Your thigh should be supported till knee and legs should touch the floor/foot rest (or whatever). Get up every half hour. I know it's not easy but a 30 second break will do wonders for your back. Drink a lot of fluid (not acohol!). 3 liters a day.

He could be suffering from gastritis or gastro esophageal reflux disease. Avoid spicy and fried foods. Also avoid junk food and fast food. If his problems are worse, you need to take an ecg and take medications.

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.

pain is complex, so there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medications. Being also a general physician, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary tips taking into account patient preferences.
