I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.

Every extreme condition of my this which can or cannot happen. Kindly advise so that I can show your opinion to my in laws. My wife is 4 month pregnant. And they are creating all this trouble.

Always take care of your spine and never avoid your problem. It is a progressive disease. All you need to do is exercises for your entire spine 1. Lie flat on your back and place two regular rounded towels exactly under your curved spine where there is kyphosis. Do regular breathing cycles for 5-10 minutes. This is a correction for kyphosis. 2. Lie on your stomach with pillow under the hip (must). Raise left arm 10 times and right arm 10 times. Continue the same exercise for both the legs. 3. If you are a swimmer then start swimming as an exercise for 30 minutes. Water properties have proven the best for treating AS. Feel free to ask further questions.

Sir/madam, my father met with an accident in 2006 and his right knee ligament was cut in that incident.(he used medicine to relief pain at that time) but now due to pain again in right knee he consulted doctor and took MRI. It shows: 1. ACL tear 2. Complex tear of posterior horn of lateral meniscus 3. Effusion in knee joint 4. Minimal fluid collection deep to medial head of gastrocnemius origin. Doctors told to go for surgery, but my father already faced surgery for hernia. And denies for another. He has pain when going on steps. please prescribe any suggestions and measures to be followed to prevent pain and surgery.

It is upto you whether you go for surgery or not. Doctor has suggested you best option. Pain is because of instability due to ligament tear and Meniscus tear. These things do not Heal on their own. Had it been just ligament tear, you could have got relief with physiotherapy. Torn meniscus keeps rubbing on joint surfaces and pain would go on increasing. It also causes damage to cartilage. All modalities directed to reduce pain somehow temporarily will not change meniscus and ligament injury. If you have smell in room because of cat has died behind cupboard, then spraying room freshener will be useful only for some time and again you will get smell. Similar is thing with this injury. Unless you remove cat, smell won't go. Same way unless you operate knee, pain won't go. Choice is yours.

What is the Effect of Poor Posture? How can Physiotherapy help?

What is the Effect of Poor Posture? How can Physiotherapy help?

The spine is a foundational structure of the human body that supports both the head and the neck. The neck is especially vulnerable to the damaging effects of poor posture because it’s influenced by the position of the skull as well as the curvature of the spine. 

 When the neck leans forward and the head is in front of the shoulders, the forward weight of the head can place considerable pressure on the vertebrae of the neck. This position, if held repeatedly for long periods of time, has been found to contribute to disc deterioration and other degenerative conditions.

Prolonged malposition of the spine or the head can put a fair amount of strain on neck muscles, causing them to become tight and tense. 
This muscle tension often leads to pain and stiffness. There are also several other muscles that are particularly susceptible to damage caused by strain. 

These muscles are- 

1- scalene muscles
2-suboccipital muscles 
 3-levator scapulae muscles. 

A forward head position also places strain on the upper back and shoulder muscles. Excessive muscle strain is a common culprit for recurring back pain.

The results of poor posture-

If left uncorrected over time, poor posture can lead to numerous long-term problems. Improper posture can begin to irritate the ligaments, joints and soft tissues in and surrounding the neck. 

Irritation could contribute to the development of osteoarthritis, disc herniation or degenerative disc disease. It may also cause decreased range of motion and the development of painful trigger points (areas of muscle that are extremely sensitive to touch).

How physiotherapy can help?

Treatment of neck problems involves identifying and managing the underlying causes present.

 Physiotherapy treatment includes- mobilization and/or manipulation techniques, stretching and strengthening of the neck musculature, soft tissue therapy and trigger pointing, heat therapy, cryotherapy, postural correction, acupuncture, ultrasound and pilates.

 Manual therapy techniques are used to loosen joint and soft tissue restrictions, while posture correction and specific and how to prevent recurrences. 

The majority of neck pain sufferers tend to work at desks; therefore, optimising this environment through ergonomic assessment is often the key to successful management of this problem.
