Emotional Distress and Back pain
Back pain is one of the problems most often viewed by a physiotherapist.
In fact, four out of five person will have an back pain sometime during their life.
As luck would have it, the majority of patients with back pain gets relief and return to their normal life.
Only some people have longer episodes of back pain. When there is a suffering, It is quite normal to experience emotional reactions to  back pain. These responses can include fear, anxiety and worry  about what the pain means and what harms body have , how long it will last pain  and how much it affects daily life. In fact, pain is a complex experience that includes both physical and psychological elements.
Frequently back pain is also interrelated to a number of factors.
All of these recommendations are designed to cut the emotional concerns and stress most patients experience with pain. Anxiousness about pain and hurt can actually increase your feelings  of pain and decrease  your pain tolerance .

Thither is a cycle between our pain and thought process, as more pain perceived by our body more will it leads to distress, so then it becomes a cycle of more pain and more stress to our body.

Psychological problems about back pain leads to sleeplessness, irritability, and loss of interest in past habits.Sometimes pain increased up to a point that you want to get rid of it any cost.

In order to control psychological  disturbance , it is important to questions about your back pain from your physiotherapist  so you do not leave uncertain or distressed . To know about your pain will help lessen your anxiety.

During the early period, feelings of helplessness, aggression occur. In order to overcome this stress, you need to be sure that your physiotherapy  is attentive to all of your physiological and psychological problems .

You and your physiotherapist  have to do the following:

You can report your pain level and type of pain to your physiotherapist that it helps to make a correct diagnosis.

Be sure your physiotherapist help you in getting away your fears with special assessment concerned to your activities ,lifestyle and age.He also informs you about your condition and make appropriate tests to rule out any serious problem.

Be sure about your physiotherapist that what he is looking for and what is he excluding in making a diagnosis.

Your physiotherapist advises on your activity level and do and don't of specific activities will limit the progression of disease and help in positive outcomes.

The information you receive about your disease from your  disease about the cause of disease and amount of time it will take to come back also affects your pain and anxiety level, and if patients have more positive feelings about their illness than there is a more chance to enough and speedy recovery.

For leg pain try this. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Pl watch your wight reduction by at least 5 kgs. Consult after 5 days.

I have heel pain few days .please recommend medicine for this. 2 6 years female. Pain in the heel of left leg.
Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis (pf) Some home remedies for pf: -Stretching exercises. Exercises that stretch out the calf muscles help ease pain and assist with recovery. -Avoid going barefoot. When you walk without shoes, you put undue strain and stress on your plantar fascia. -Ice. Putting an ice pack on your heel for 20 minutes several times a day helps reduce inflammation. Place a thin towel between the ice and your heel; do not apply ice directly to the skin. -Limit activities. Cut down on extended physical activities to give your heel a rest. -Shoe modifications. Wearing supportive shoes that have good arch support and a slightly raised heel reduces stress on the plantar fascia. -Medications. Oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, may be recommended to reduce pain and inflammation. If you still have pain after several weeks, see a Physiotherapist for exercises and other physical therapy measures may be used to help provide relief. Best wishes.

All About Torn Meniscus

All About Torn Meniscus

Your knees are one of the most vulnerable parts of your bodies. In case of strenuous or vigorous activities, knees are more prone to damage and injury than the other parts. Several of the knee tissues are fairly delicate and often are easily impaired. Among the other knee tissue injuries, meniscus tears are perhaps the most frequent. Meniscus is essentially a cartilage that protects and stabilizes the knee joints. However, an untoward twist or a strain can lead to a tear in the meniscus. Meniscus tears are a common phenomenon among athletes and sportsmen. They have been noted to be more recurrent in older individuals. 

Some of the early symptoms that indicate the onset of a meniscus tear are swelling and difficulty in bending or straightening of the leg. Sometimes a "locking sensation" in the knees also forebodes a torn meniscus. The inflammation potentially causes a lot of pain and irritation. While, it is fairly easy to ignore a meniscus tear for a normal knee injury, prolonged overlooking may only aggravate the pain and worsen the condition. The process of diagnosing a meniscus tear usually involves an MRI scan and an X-ray examination, over and above a detailed evaluation of the wound.

Treating meniscus tears vary according to the extent of the injury. Depending upon the location and the depth of the tear, various cures can be tried. The healing process, however, depends upon other allied factors such as age, level of physical activities and one's medical history. An external and minor injury is easily mendable. Whereas, graver injuries are resolved through surgical means. The other non-operative means include certain prescribed medicines and specific exercises. Some of the recommended ways of battling a meniscus tear can be enlisted as:

  1. Resting the knee by limiting the activities that involve excessive use of the legs or they may potentially strain the leg muscles.
  2. Applying ice pack can significantly bring relief to the swelling and the pain in the injured knee. Doctors advice regular use for a duration of at least 15 days.
  3. Compressing the knee using an elastic bandage or neoprene sleeve reduces the swelling in the knee.
  4. Prescribed medicines in the likes of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can be effective remedies for a meniscus tear. However, one must mandatorily consult a doctor before consuming such medicines.
