How Physiotherapy helps manage different types of pain?

Hello everyone, myself Dr Ranjana Arora physiotherapist having Physio Slimfit Wellness Centre in DLF, Phase-2 in Gurgaon. Today every second person is having pain condition like a pain in the back, pain in the hip, pain in a knee, pain in neck accompany by neck swings and followed by headaches, giddiness, vertigo etc. Others suffer from degenerative disorders like gout, osteoporosis, painful shoulder, having degenerative diseases and after an accident, they have restricted mobility immobility and a lot of pain and after surgery of tendon, they usually range of motion is restricted. So these are all very painful conditions frozen shoulder, so the only thing comes in mind ki age is no more a criteria for suffering from diseases. A person working in MNC or corporate of age around 22 or 30 or 40 aligns up with same symptoms of a person having an age of 62, for example a person can have cervical Spondylitis symptoms like vertigo, pain in neck at the age of 16 and same person can have same symptoms at the age of 62 due to degeneration, one can suffer from injury and one suffers from degeneration. So the question arises when all these problems occur and what is the reason behind it. Is there anyway so that we can avoid this kind of situations. So the thing comes to our mind ki we should have proper knowledge of the thing before going, now we feel that in our society, the society is moving towards the drugs. It is a lot of demand for drugs if you have pain just go for a painkiller if you are having pain and you are not able to sleep the surgeon writes or the physician writes an anti-depression medicine. So the drugs demands are increasing, if you land up with some an injury, the surgeon will go for arthroscopy for a knee, arthroscopy for shoulder, tendon repair and all the premature surgeries are happening. So the solution behind to avoid these situations lies in one that is matrix rhythm German therapy. It is a very advanced version of physiotherapy and it has a very good success rate, it is an extended arm for a physiotherapist. The recovery after using this therapy is the last for very long and is followed by proper nutrition and exercise and relaxation we have very good results. So the matrix therapy is a rapid tempo in a therapy now a day. So the principal after Matrix therapy is that our body is made up of trillions of cells and we have a very stressful environment, the cell rhythm is lost the outsense are oxy in deficit and the extracellular matrix the connective tissue present it is in low quantity and which leads to hardening of the muscles and later affects all the organs also. So we find that ki medicine or the treatment done by the doctors is always a symptom-based if you have a particular symptom like fever they give a Paracetamol unlike. But no one goes for the root cause or approaches the root in spite our body is made up of 45% of the cells but we find that no one approaches for the cell therapy or regeneration or healing. So Matrix Rhythm therapy is basically based on the approach of cell biology so it gives very good results. We expertise in foreign treatments like frozen shoulder, knee pain back pain, all kinds of pain and tennis elbow and diabetic foot, jaw pain and varicose veins and backaches and discoloration due to osteoporosis and you can also contact us for the same therapy at a Physio Slimfit Wellness Centre, which is a complete fore care centre with the Physiotherapy department, a functional studio with Zumba, pilatus and aerobics and anti-age department underweight loss management under one roof, we have very unique concept. Thank you so much.

Today I am going to discuss Central Obesity which almost every Indian is facing. A Belly fat. Today we will discuss what is Belly fat or Central obesity or Abdominal fat. What are the causes of belly fat? How to get rid of this problem? How to measure waist size to classify as an obese person? and what are the risks associated with it? 

What is Central Obesity?

The central obesity, Belly fat or Abdominal fat is when an excessive amount of fat is deposited around the stomach and the internal organs have reached to an extent where we can have a negative impact on the health, is called Central Obesity. People suffer from many problems such as high risks of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes. And other problems are like High BP, they cannot walk, breathlessness, insulin resistance and many other problems.

How to measure a waist size to classify as an Obese?

In order to measure a waist size, we can simply go for BMI (Body Mass Index). A BMI between 25-29.9 is considered as over weight, a BMI of 30 is considered as Obese and a BMI between 25-34.9 with the waist size of  40 inches in a male and 35 inches in the female has a risk of developing Cardiovascular diseases of Central Obesity and the associated problems with it.

How can we get rid of this Belly Fat?

If our diet is more and exercise is less, then the calorie intake will be more and the consumption of energy is less. We will land up with the accumulation of fat in the internal organs and the abdominal area. After a certain age, our muscles become loose and the energy required for calorie burn is less because our muscle mass goes down. So if we have less muscle mass, then fewer calories are burnt as required in our body. As we age, less calories are consumed and required. So if you consume more of the calories at a later age, you will undergo Central Obesity. So, how can we get rid of it? Here are the few tips,

  • Avoid intake of sugar.
  • Avoid sugar-sweetened carbohydrate drinks, reduce carbohydrate.
  • Increase protein to the diet. It will help you out for the long term.
  • Increase intake of Fibre enriched food.
  • Exercise is one of the best way. You can go for running, walking, ball aerobics like crunches on the ball, reverse crunches, straight vertical leg crunches. These are the best exercises to reduce belly fat.
  • You can have luke warm water added with honey in empty stomach.
  • You can have mint, herbal tea which will help in reducing belly fat etc.

How Hamstring Exercise Is Good For Runner's Knee?

How Hamstring Exercise Is Good For Runner's Knee?

Runner’s knee is a very common problem with athletes. It is definitely not something one needs to worry about. In fact, with certain exercises, it can be prevented and if you do develop a runner’s knee, it can be treated with some exercises as well. There are special sports medical practitioners who prescribe not only regular physiotherapy, but also specific exercises to deal with specific sports injuries. To fight with runner’s knee pain, there are a few exercises.

But the four most important ones are described in detail below.

  1. Quads: For performing proper quads, all you need is a back wall for additional support. You need to hold yourself against the wall and keep your legs apart from each other. The legs should be folded in the knees. In this position, you have to move up till the knee position with a minimum of one minute hold time in the knee position. You can repeat this exercise 10 times at a stretch before moving on to the next exercise.
  2. Hamstring: This is a fairly easier exercise than the previous one. You have to stand straight with your legs apart. Bend downwards from your hips. Relax your neck and back. Ease your head downwards as well. Keep your hands behind. Join both your hands and give it a stretch. If you think that this position is straining your neck or back a little too much, then you can simply stretch your hands without joining them.
  3. Calves: Calves is a standard exercise that is prescribed by medical practitioners and physiotherapists for easing out the pain caused by runner’s knee. You have to stand with your hand against the wall. Put your left leg forward and bend it at the knees. Stand on your right heel. Hold yourself in this position for 20 to 30 seconds before changing the legs and doing the same.
  4. Lateral: Lateral is also one of the easiest and common forms of exercises. You have to stand with your legs directly below your hips. Then stretch your right leg apart. Without bending your knees, try to touch the toes of your right leg with the fingers of your left hand. Hold this position for 20 to 30 seconds before changing the position and performing the lateral with your left leg.

Thus, these are some of the very fundamental exercises that one should follow in order to get quick relief from the pains of a runner’s knee. These exercises are very easy and help in reducing pain.

5 Exercises For Managing Ankylosing Spondylitis!

5 Exercises For Managing Ankylosing Spondylitis!

Ankylosing spondylitis is typically associated with inflammatory back pain that can impair movements and reduce the quality of the patient’s life. Here are 5 exercises that can be used to treat ankylosing Spondylitis.

  • Walking: Walking is a low impact workout that can be very beneficial for ankylosing spondylitis patients. This is the ideal way to ease the body into exercising. Start with a short 5-10 minute walk and gradually increase the duration of your walks to half an hour at a stretch. Try and keep your spine as straight as possible and hold your head high while you walk. Walking can help relieve pain and increase the range of movements.
  • Swimming: Swimming is another low-intensity workout that can help. This type of exercising helps strengthen the muscles and heart while minimizing joint pain. Swimming puts no pressure on the joints and hence is ideal for ankylosing spondylitis patients. The breaststroke can help build chest expansion and make your neck and shoulders more flexible. For a little extra pampering, you could go for a swim in a heated pool.
  • Lightweight Training: Look for lightweight training exercises that help strengthen your muscles without putting pressure on the joints. Plank exercises are great as they work many muscle groups simultaneously. You could also try lifting light weights or household canned goods to strengthen your limbs. Exercise machines can be helpful but must be used with caution. The key to exercising is to start slowly and gradually increase the duration of time you hold a position and the number of repetitions.
  • YogaYoga is very beneficial for patients with musculoskeletal conditions. It reduces pain, increases flexibility and helps open out the joints to make them more mobile. Yoga also helps boost mental health and reduces stress and anxiety. When practising yoga, start by stretching the muscles and gradually work your way through the asanas. Do not be in a hurry to move from one position to another. You should ideally aim to fit in half an hour yoga into every morning.
  • Dance: Dancing is the most fun way to exercise. This helps burn calories that in turn helps with weight management. The lower your weight, the lower the pressure on your joints. Pick a tempo that you are comfortable with and limit repetitive motions to avoid straining any part of your body. If you like you could even join a dance class.

 In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Why Physiotherapy Is Good For Facial Paralysis?

B.P.T, M.P.T(ORTHO), Certification In Gym Instructor & Prenatal & Post Natal
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
Why Physiotherapy Is Good For Facial Paralysis?

Facial paralysis can happen due to many factors. Sometimes inflammation develops around the facial nerve as it passes through the skull from the brain. This presses on the nerve and makes it stop functioning. As the nerve stops functioning, so does the muscle it controls.

This is what happens in Bell’s palsy, the most common cause of facial paralysis. Bell’s palsy can happen to anyone and its cause is, hold your breath, a viral infection. Herpes zoster, Varicella zoster and HIV viruses can cause Bell’s palsy. Bell's palsy is a common cause of a facial paralysis but there are many others too that affect or damage facial nerve. These include head injury, sarcoidosis, lyme disease, growths in the ear, tumours in the parotid gland, brain tumours and stroke.

The weakness of the face usually one-sided is a symptom of Bell’s palsy. The face may droop to one side, chewing food is also tough, drooling, dry eyes and difficulty wrinkling forehead and speech are other symptoms of Bell’s palsy, the most common reason for facial paralysis.

Treatment:

The type of therapy you receive for facial paralysis will depend on its cause. It will also develop on how long you’ve suffered from facial paralysis and the extent of damage to the facial nerve.

Your physiotherapist can help and so can speech and language therapists to deal with the issue.

In physiotherapy, a treatment called 'facial retraining' with facial exercises helps with facial palsy. It is important that you seek help from a therapist who specialises in facial rehabilitation only.

This is what you can expect from facial rehabilitation therapy-

  1. Exercises for eye care

  2. Exercises for dry mouth management

  3. Exercises to make drinking and eating easier

  4. Speech therapy

Your physiotherapist will educate you on how the facial nerve works and how it recovers. This is important to make you recover. A home therapy programme plays an important role too. It includes massages to keep face muscles mobile and healthy, stretches to lengthen muscles, exercises to help re-learn balanced facial movements and relaxation of your facial nerve and muscles.

The physiotherapist will work on your facial movement to make muscles fit. The basic idea is to slowly rewire the brain-to-nerve-to-muscle pathway. The physiotherapist’s first step is to retrain you to do correct movements voluntarily, while mentally focusing on the movement.

Physiotherapy may take months but keep at it to recover completely, especially the home exercises.

Injections of botulinum toxin or Botox also help especially if you suffer from spasms in facial muscles. Surgery is also an option for chronic cases.

Remember that exercises should be done gently as well as daily to reap benefits. Always do these exercises with the help of a therapist only. Doing exercises by yourself can be counter- productive.

Suffering From Back Problems - 6 Things That Are Good For You!

Suffering From Back Problems - 6 Things That Are Good For You!

Today ‘working’ usually implies sitting at a desk from morning to evening. While this may seem more comfortable than working in the fields, sitting at a desk can trigger a host of back problems. This is because sitting in the same position all day makes the spine bend forward and lowers the efficiency of the back muscles. Working at a desk not only strains your back, but also restricts your movements to typing on a keyboard and moving a mouse.

Once a back problem begins, it usually lasts a lifetime hence; here are a few tips to save your back.

  1. Get yourself a good chair: Your chair is crucial to your back’s health. Avoid the hard backed plastic chairs and pick a more flexible mesh backed office chair if you sit at the table for a long span of time. Ergonomic chairs may seem expensive, but are worth the expense in the long run.
  2. Stretch your muscles: Sitting in the same position all day, puts the muscles under stress and with time can constrict the muscles. Make it appoint to stand up every 30 minutes and stretch your back and sides. Also try rotating your hips and shoulders form time to time.
  3. Take a break: No matter how much work you have in front of you, take a break at the end of each hour. Taking even 2 minutes off out of 60 every hour can have a huge impact on your health. If you still feel guilty skip using the phone to connect with your colleague and walk over to their desks instead.
  4. Get a pedometer: Keeping a pedometer will help you track the number of steps taken in a day. Ideally, a person should take 10,000 steps a day to stay healthy. If you sit at a desk for majority of the day, take every opportunity you can to up the count on your pedometer. Go for a walk around your office after lunch or park your car a little way off from the office to create opportunities to walk.
  5. Take the stairs: As far as possible avoid escalators and elevators. Instead climb stairs for a quick workout. If your office is on the 20th floor, walking up may not be feasible, but you could get off the elevator on the 18th floor and walk up the remaining two floors.
  6. Eat healthy: Lastly, pay attention to what you eat. Avoid eating at the office canteen or picking up a bite at the coffee shop and carry lunch from home. This ensures that you eat a balanced meal.

Frozen Shoulder - How Pendulum Stretch Is Good For You?

Frozen Shoulder - How Pendulum Stretch Is Good For You?

Frozen shoulder (also known as adhesive capsulitis) is a condition in which the shoulder is stiff, painful, and has limited motion in all directions. A person suffering from a frozen shoulder can be pretty uncomfortable.

Frozen shoulder treatment should be done immediately once it has been detected. Stretching exercises are considered as the best-frozen shoulder treatment exercises. A proper warm up becomes very necessary before any exercise.

Making the area warm by using a heating pad is one of the warm-up methods. However, a warm shower covers it all.

Physiotherapy for frozen shoulder includes various exercises that should be first confirmed by a doctor. There are a number of exercises for frozen shoulder. Some very important frozen shoulder exercises are listed below:

  1. Pendulum Stretch: To start with, you can do the pendulum stretch. This dictates that the shoulders should be in a state of relaxation, initially, following which the arm which is affected should be allowed to hang down slightly. Once this is done, the arm is to be swung in a small circle i.e. about a foot in diameter. This is to be done consistently so that there can be a gradual improvement in the condition. As there is an improvement, the size of the circle can be increased and once the shoulder can take sufficient weight again, minor weights (up to five pounds) can be used.
  2. Finger Walk: A simple exercise which can be done almost anywhere is the finger walk. What this exercise entails is that the person stands about three-fourths of an arm’s length away from a wall and then places his or her fingers on the wall itself, at around the level of the waist. The fingers are to crawl or walk up the wall till the point that it becomes a little uncomfortable. While this is just one repetition, after the fingers have been lowered, it is to be done again. In order to have the best results in combating frozen shoulder, the finger walk exercise is to be repeated about twenty times in a day.
  3. Towel Stretches: Towels do not serve a greater role apart from drying up post a bath or over the course of a visit to the spa, right? Well, this is not really true due to the fact that they can be used to even help with frozen shoulder! Indeed, towel stretches done by holding the towel with each hand across one’s back. The arm which is normal should then pull the affected arm so it is stretched. As is the case with the finger walk, about 20 repetitions a day is ideal for good results.

If one goes a step forward and follows a regime of with all these exercises, the person suffering due to frozen shoulder will be back to normal in almost no time at all!

Exercise - 8 Moves That Actually Are A Waste Of Effort!

Exercise - 8 Moves That Actually Are A Waste Of Effort!

People who regularly work out can go on about its benefits and also show off a toned physique. However, a bad or improper movement can be more harmful than no exercise at all. Read on to know some common exercise moves that are best avoided for their potential harmful effects.

  1. Dumbbell punches: By holding dumbbells and punching them forward into the air, you are just spending your energy with absolutely no return from it. It is good as a conditioning one if done for a long time but does not help the shoulders or the arms. Bicep curls and triceps extensions yield much better results than these punches.
  2. Shoulder Shrugs: The only muscle that gets worked here is the trapezius, which is at the top of the shoulders and the neck. The arms and the back do not get any benefit and shoulder shrugs can actually cause postural problems and increase shoulder tension. Best avoided if you are not a professional bodybuilder.
  3. Thigh machines: One of the most ineffective machines in the gym, the poor posture and no workout for the abs is one of the reasons the outer and inner thigh workouts should be avoided. Better results can be achieved with squats and lunges, which also help more muscles and help in losing weight.
  4. Plank rows: While plank rows or board lines work very well for core strengthening, it is not as effective for back and arm strengthening. Better results are achieved with the usual lines for these areas.
  5. Lat pull-downs behind the neck: This can be very harmful for people who have even minor shoulder joint problems. The idea is to build arm, torso, and back muscles by pulling a weighted bar down the front and back of the chest area. This can cause misalignment, shoulder impingement, or a tear in the rotator cuff, and in severe cases, even cervical vertebral fracture.
  6. Military Presses Behind the Head: Similar to a lat pull-down, here also, a barbell is lifted up and down behind the head and can cause the same problems as the earlier one, including fracture of the cervical spine.
  7. Squatting on a bosu ball: These colorful equipment are very alluring but can be really dangerous and can cause ankles and knees to be injured, causing meniscal tears or disruptions.
  8. Crunches: When improperly done, crunches produce the same position as one achieves while working on the computer - head forward and rounded shoulder. Crunches are meant to be done by pulling up on the head and not using the abs, as most people incorrectly do.

Make sure you get a trainer's advice on the right ways to work out so as to get the maximum benefits and avoid injuries.

Stretching Of Muscles - Know The Right Way!

Stretching Of Muscles - Know The Right Way!

Being flexible is not always about doing splits or doing some random bending. It is about achieving a level of mobility that will not hold you back from doing whatever you are able to do. Most people think that stretching or flexing your muscles and body as the first method to defend you from pain. But if stretching and flexing can be done correctly, it can lengthen one's muscles and give one relief from pains and aches. Stretching is also done to increase the functional range of one's joints and muscles. There are various ways by which one can stretch their muscles. However, the question which looms over here is which is the correct procedure and which is the wrong one.

The Wrong Vs the Right Way: Before discussing about the correct way, let us talk about the various wrong ways in which stretching can be done. The first rule is that if stretching is causing you pain or if it is hurting you, then you are probably taking it too far. A muscle needs to relax as much as possible, if it needs to stretch. If one is stretching so hard that he or she cannot relax then the muscle will not lengthen. Stretching should never be painful.

One should also avoid stretching for an insufficient length of time. Only a few seconds of stretching will not hold the therapeutic effects of stretching.

The following methods are few of the correct ways to stretch:

  1. Always start with the warm muscles. Warm your muscles by doing some aerobic movement or by applying heat with the help of a warm bath.
  2. After warming your muscles, monitor your level of discomfort. Let it go once you feel pain.
  3. Hold any stretch for at least 30 seconds.

Stretching the Correct Muscle: There are muscles, which need to be stretched and there are muscles, which should not be. So getting to know the correct muscles to be stretched is as important as knowing the correct procedure to stretch your muscles. Every muscle, which does not hurt should not be stretched. There are different types of muscles that cause pain like stiff, tight, short muscles and long muscles. Muscles that are tight should only be subjected to stretching. Stretching muscles that are too long is not a good idea.

Using Physiotherapists: Most people who cannot determine which muscle should be stretched and which should not be should consult a physiotherapist. Physiotherapists can quickly and easily diagnose muscular issues. They will also show ways to stretch which are most effective for particular needs.

Stretching should be made a part of one's life. It is a way by which one can become their healthiest self and avoid muscular imbalances.

Hello everyone, myself Dr Ranjana Arora physiotherapist having Physio Slimfit Wellness Centre in DLF, Phase-2 in Gurgaon. Today every second person is having pain condition like a pain in the back, pain in the hip, pain in a knee, pain in neck accompany by neck swings and followed by headaches, giddiness, vertigo etc. Others suffer from degenerative disorders like gout, osteoporosis, painful shoulder, having degenerative diseases and after an accident, they have restricted mobility immobility and a lot of pain and after surgery of tendon, they usually range of motion is restricted. So these are all very painful conditions frozen shoulder, so the only thing comes in mind ki age is no more a criteria for suffering from diseases. A person working in MNC or corporate of age around 22 or 30 or 40 aligns up with same symptoms of a person having an age of 62, for example a person can have cervical Spondylitis symptoms like vertigo, pain in neck at the age of 16 and same person can have same symptoms at the age of 62 due to degeneration, one can suffer from injury and one suffers from degeneration. So the question arises when all these problems occur and what is the reason behind it. Is there anyway so that we can avoid this kind of situations. So the thing comes to our mind ki we should have proper knowledge of the thing before going, now we feel that in our society, the society is moving towards the drugs. It is a lot of demand for drugs if you have pain just go for a painkiller if you are having pain and you are not able to sleep the surgeon writes or the physician writes an anti-depression medicine. So the drugs demands are increasing, if you land up with some an injury, the surgeon will go for arthroscopy for a knee, arthroscopy for shoulder, tendon repair and all the premature surgeries are happening. So the solution behind to avoid these situations lies in one that is matrix rhythm German therapy. It is a very advanced version of physiotherapy and it has a very good success rate, it is an extended arm for a physiotherapist. The recovery after using this therapy is the last for very long and is followed by proper nutrition and exercise and relaxation we have very good results.

We expertise in foreign treatments like frozen shoulder, knee pain back pain, all kinds of pain and tennis elbow and diabetic foot, jaw pain and varicose veins and backaches and discoloration due to osteoporosis and you can also contact us for the same therapy at a Physio Slimfit Wellness Centre, which is a complete fore care centre with the Physiotherapy department, a functional studio with Zumba, pilatus and aerobics and anti-age department underweight loss management under one roof, we have very unique concept.

Treadmill Or Outside Running - Which One Is Better?

Although both seem similar, treadmill and jogging are very different from each other. The same muscles are used in both the exercises and exactly same body movement is involved while performing these workouts. Both are done for cardiovascular fitness, to decrease the amount of fat in your body, and to tone your legs. However, here are a few pointers which show you the difference between treadmill and jogging:

  1. Treadmill is easy: Running on a treadmill is easier than going out for a jog. This is because a treadmill has a plain running surface with a constant environment. But when you go out for a jog, the surface may not be plain; the environment might not be constant as it can be windy or extremely sunny. The treadmill can also be adjusted according to your requirements, like the inclination or the speed of the belt can be increased or decreased. Also, it has less effects on your joints because you are able to have a flat surface to place your foot every time, unlike the rough surface of the roads and lanes when you jog.
  2. Convenience: Running a mile at home on a treadmill is much more convenient than going out for a jog. You can hop onto a treadmill for a run anytime, but going out for jog whenever you feel like, is difficult and can cause inconvenience. The weather might not be appropriate to go for a jog, or you might have certain things to do which you can while you are on the treadmill.
  3. Motivation: Treadmills allow you to see how much you have run, which will motivate you to work harder and surpass your previous limit. This is difficult when you go out for a jog as you cannot calculate how much you ran.
  4. Burning calories: Jogging outside is much more challenging than jogging on a treadmill. This is because of the various factors which you have to face like weather and terrain while you are jogging outside. This causes you to burn more calories than what you would on a treadmill. However, you can change the inclination and the speed of the treadmill which will also enable you to burn more calories.

Although jogging outside and on a treadmill might have these few differences, you will get the best results if you are able to combine both together. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
