My husband is suffering from tonsillitis since 1 year. Had many antibiotics but it is not curing completely. Now he have pain on his back neck. What to do for this.
I am experiencing dizziness, weakness, fatigue, exercise intolerance since last 15 months when I exercised more with reduction in calories intake (low carb diet). I had stopped this program 10 months ago and have LFT, KFT,SERUM ELECTROLYTES, TOTAL PROTEIN, SERUM CORTISOL (7.95 ug/dl) blood test all of which are in Normal ranges except blood sugar levels. One thing more is that my weakness, fatigue increase in early morning and in late evening. Here are some levels of my blood sugar F:- 74,69,66,71,70 PP:- 84,81,78,76,74 I had my insulin levels checked which again came normal. I remember correctly that just 2 months before the starting dieting program my sugar levels are F:- 89,87,88 PP:-98,99 please help me as this problem is destroying my career.

How physiotherapy help in the joint complaint?
Physiotherapy includes following methods to improve the joint complaints:
1. Local applications
Application of ice packs to soothe hot, swollen joints and application of heat packs to relax tense, tired muscles is usually done.
2. Splinting of joints
In cases of rheumatoid arthritis where joint complaints flare ups at that time splinting of the joints helps to the greater extent. Immobilization of the joint with splint helps to avoid further damage of soft tissues, and nerves.
3. Trans-cutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy
It helps by blocking pain messages from affected joint to the brain, and it alters the perception of pain. It is done by using a small machine with an electronic device which sends impulses to the nerve endings, and this is attached with the pads which are placed on the skin. This device causes a tingling sensation that gives soothing effects to the joint.
4. Gradual increasing daily exercises
Exercise should be started slowly, and it should increase slowly. This helps to strengthen the muscles and joints and increases fitness. Regular exercise also stimulates the production of endorphin which is one of the best pain-relieving hormones.
5. Massage therapy
Physiotherapy also includes massage therapy which helps to relax the muscles, helps to improve joint movement, and makes more comfortable movements.
Sometimes, acupuncture is also used to stimulate the brain to produce endorphins.
Hydrotherapy includes exercise in the warm water pool. It is mostly used in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The warm water in the pool increases circulation during exercise, and due to the buoyancy of water, the joint, and muscles can be exercised without any unnecessary pressure on it.
