Sure, you should try mckenzie back extension exercises, leg pain radiating from the back can be due to nerves in the back, but you will also require some special painkiller for nerve pain.

My right knee was paining I took x-ray and consulted a doctor he said that there is space between bones.

Physiotherapist, Noida
Knee 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).

I am 18 years old. Whenever I walk it seems that something is pinching in my knee. It causes pain. I have used several ointments but got no relief. Please help me suggesting some aids.

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy)
Check your hemoglobin level. If it is low follow iron rich diet. If hemoglobin is at level then check your knee position. If there is more backward bend in any one of the knee or both do regular exercise to strengthen hamstring muscle (you may find in net). If you regularly play in which you jump a lot ; please use knee cap.

Try to avoid heavy, spicy, oily, fried meals - do walking exercises daily. Sometimes gas gets trapped in abdomen and resembles heart problems. If ecg - bp and other issues are normal then probablitiy of gas is more prompt.

MD - Anaesthesiology
Anesthesiologist, Anand
Yes you are rgt lybrate-user. It could b because of sitting still for a long time. And than when you suddenly stand up muscle may go in spasm. Next time whenever you have to sit for a long time do not sit still. Keep moving your feet toes. You can even move side to side. And yes if possible stand up invetween stretch your body and walk few steps.
