My list of thank you's is endless.She is God sent to me....They say angle like doctor's are rare to find but i found one in real life.I will always be indebted where her work ,understanding and support is concerned and will never be able to repay her in this life . Thank you so much.

I visited this Physio clinic for the first time for my neck related pain and headache. The treatment I received was exceptional. I have used 3 different physio’s before this and they did not compare. At the start of the session the Physio asked me a series of questions to determine my problems, and talked out loud what he was thinking by my answers – which really helped me understand what was wrong with me, and what was not wrong with me. Throughout the session he talked through what was happening and at the end discussed results achieved. Will be returning for another session this month. I would highly recommend this practice. The price is reasonable.

Its a big relief. Thanks doc!

Are Tech devices causing neck pain...please read: TEXT NECK SYNDROME...

What is text neck syndrome?
Text neck is the term used to describe the neck pain and damage sustained from looking down at your cell phone, tablet, or other wireless devices too frequently and for too long.
Symptoms of text neck syndrome?
Text neck most commonly causes neck pain and soreness. In addition, looking down at your cell phone too much each day can lead to:

Upper back pain ranging from a chronic, nagging pain to sharp, severe upper back muscle spasms. Shoulder pain and tightness, possibly resulting in painful shoulder muscle spasm. If a cervical (neck) nerve becomes pinched, pain and possibly neurological symptoms can radiate down your arm and into your hand
How is text neck treated?

First, prevention is key. Here are several pieces of advice for preventing the development or advancement of text neck:

@hold your cell phone at eye level as much as possible. The same holds true for all screens - laptops and tablets should also be positioned so the screen is at eye level and you don't have to bend your head forward or look down to view it.
@take frequent breaks from your phone and laptop throughout the day. For example, set a timer or alarm that reminds you to get up and walk around every 20 to 30 minutes. If you work in an office, make sure your screen is set up so that when you look at it, you are looking forward, with your head positioned squarely in line with your shoulders and spine.
The bottom line is to avoid looking down with your head bent forward for extended periods throughout the day.


Next, rehabilitation is important. Consult physiotherapist get it check and start with specific rehabilitation.

Clawing of the hands is a common disability caused by leprosy. As leprosy starts damaging the small nerves in the skin's surface and if left untreated can result major nerve damage. The resulting damage can lead to loss of sensation in the hand and muscle parsis paralysis, which causes clawed fingers. Reconstructive surgery to correct the deformities of leprosy in the hands and feet. Movement can be restored by using a muscle transfer technique where, with the help of a physiotherapist, a muscle is identified for transfer and strengthened. After surgery and several weeks in plaster, the patient is taught how to use their old muscle to do a new job and then apply the technique subconsciously. In case of muscle paralysis. Reconstructive surgery and muscle tranfer technique is needed in severe cases and then physiotherapy for muscle strenghening and reducation is required. If claw hand is not severe and only muscle weekness is there then physiotherapy can help you with muscle strenthening and range if motion exercises. Thanks take care.

Sitting straight at 90 : Myth or Truth

Fellowship in Neurological Rehabilitation, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist
Ask Free Question
If you ask people what the ideal sitting posture is, most if not all will reflexively offer some variation of 'sit up straight at 90. Or keep your back straight.' but the ideal sitting posture is a variable one or constanly changing one.

Frequent changes in sitting position: leaning the seat back while keeping feet flat on the floor, sitting back and propping your legs up on the desk, or crossing your legs. The real goal then should be to prevent any given structure or tissue from bearing the load of sitting for too long, that can be accomplished by regularly shifting position. If you are sitting so rigidly upright that it's effortful, you will be in an unnatural position that will increase the pressure on back and fatigue your back structures.

Finally, do not forget to take some relief from sitting altogether. Roughly once per hour, it is helpful to stand up, gently stretch your arms towards the ceiling, and take a deep breath.

Take care.

Hi * Prone lying is the best exercise for maintaining erect posture. Lie face down on a firm surface, such as the floor or a firm bed. In case you are uncomfortable, you can place a pillow under your chest and a folded towel under your forehead. It's often helpful to do this posture training after a warm bath or shower or whenever the body is warmed up. *Try sleeping on a firm, but not hard, bed to maintain a good, non-bent resting posture at night. Avoid using a pillow, to prevent pain from over-extension of the neck and spine. *Splints, braces, and corsets are generally not advised for spondylitis patients. *Hardback, upright chairs or straight-backed rocking chairs are better for your posture than low, soft, upholstered chairs or sofas. Use a cushion behind your lower back to give extra support and help you keep good posture. *try to seat at the proper height and don’t sit in one position for too long without moving your back. *Try doing specific strengthening and flexibility exercises under guidance of physiotherapist. Thanks and take care.

Osteoporosis and Exercises

Fellowship in Neurological Rehabilitation, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist
Ask Free Question
Hello friends,

What is osteoporosis?

The components of the word'osteoporosis' literally mean'porous bones' -'osteo' is for bones, and'porosis' means porous - helpfully describing this condition that results in reduced bone density and increased fragility of the bones. The thinning of the bones in osteoporosis, combined with the formation of weaker bone crystals, puts people at a higher risk of fall and fractures.

It can affect anyone of any gender, but it is particularly prevalent in postmenopausal women due to the sudden decrease in protective oestrogen levels after menopause.

Signs and symtom

Bone loss that develops slowly, leading to osteoporosis, does not cause any symptoms or outward signs.

As such, a patient may only discover that they have osteoporosis due to an unexpected fracture after a minor fall or a slip or strain - or even a simple cough or sneeze - may result in a fracture. Breaks in the spine can lead to altered posture, with compressed vertebrae creating the stooped appearance often seen in older people

Diagnosis

Osteoporosis may be diagnosed directly through the use of a bone scan that measures bone mineral density (bmd). Central or peripheral dxa.

Osteoporosis is diagnosed when the t-score is -2.5 or below.

Other methods of measuring bone density include x-ray, ultrasound, and ct scan

Treatment

It is important to ensure the cause of low bone denisty has been properly diagnosed as the treatment will vary greatly. The decision about what treatment you need ? if any ? will also be based on a number of other factors. These include your:

- Age
- Sex
- Risk of fracture
- Previous injury history


Treating osteoporosis involves treating and preventing fractures and using medication to strengthen bones.

How can a physical therapist help?

Your physical therapist can develop a specific program based on your individual needs to help improve your overall bone health, keep your bones healthy, and help you avoid fracture. Your physical therapist may teach you.

- Specific exercises: to build bone or decrease the amount of bone loss
- Proper posture
- How to improve your balance so as to reduce your risk of falling
- How to adjust your environment to protect your bone health

Typically, exercises are performed 2 to 3 times a week as part of an overall fitness program. Your exercise routine should include exercises in each of the following areas:

- Strengthening exercise
- Postural exercise
- Balance exercise
- Weight-bearing
- Flexibility exercise


1) strength training

Strength training is a type of exercise with the goal of improving muscular strength. It involves performing movements against resistance; it is sometimes referred to as resistance training. Exercise bands, weights, machines or even your own body weight can be used for resistance. Strength training may increase spine and hip bone mineral density.

2) posture training

Posture training involves paying attention to how the parts of our body are aligned with each other. Some kyphosis, or curvature of the upper back, is normal, but fractures or weak back extensor muscles can cause the spine to curve more than usual, resulting in an exaggerated kyphosis or excessively curved upper back. Attention to alignment during activity and at rest, along with exercises targeting the back extensor muscles, can improve the alignment of the spine. Flexion exercises are often contraindicated.

3) balance training

Balance training exercises are those that challenge your balance. Balance exercises are also important to incorporate to further reduce the risk of falls examples include: shifting weight to the limits of support (e. G, moving your weight more to one foot than another).

Physical activities like tai chi, that involve balance and coordination may also reduce falls and fractures.

Tai chi is a very safe and effective low impact form of exercise that improves balance and reduces the risk of falls.

4) weight bearing aerobic (water) physical activity

Aerobic exercise is a rhythmic activity that you do for at least 10 minutes at a time continuously and it increases your heart rate and makes you breathe harder than you usually do during your daily activities. For individuals with osteoporosis, we often recommend weight-bearing aerobic exercise or physical activity like walking or cycling or swimming or guided exercises to be done in swimming pool

5 flexibility exercise:

These can help improve the individuals overall physical function and postural control

- Start by speaking with a physical therapist or consult me to ensure you are choosing safe, specific and appropriate physical activities for you.
- Remember: if you have osteoporosis, aerobic exercise is not enough. Strength training and balance training are essential to maintain bone and muscle, and prevent falls.

Technology is opening doors to innovation in patient care and rehabilitation, ranging from robotics to social media and beyond.

Patients who have suffered trauma, strokes, spinal cord injuries, hip fractures or neurological disorders, the key to a quicker recovery lies in technology and skilled physical therapists,

The new technique, details of which are reported in the journal of neurotrauma, is believed to represent the first time patients have regained voluntary leg movement without the need for invasive treatments such as surgery.

Instead, scientists utilized electrical stimulation therapy and physical rehabilitation exercises to treat patients.

"the potential to offer a life-changing therapy to patients without requiring surgery would be a major advance; it could greatly expand the number of individuals who might benefit from spinal stimulation"

Stimulation was elicited by a device called an epidural stimulator, which needed to be surgically implanted into the patient's spinal cord.
An ongoing computer science PHD with the school of computing and information engineering at the university of ulster, Coleraine, investigating how the principles of computer & video game design can be effectively applied to upper-limb stroke rehabilitation.

Rehabilitating finer movements such as reach, grasp, manipulation and release of objects. The advantage of using this technology is that real objects of different shape, size and weight can be used, with the potential of rehabilitating meaningful and transferable skills. The games work with a standard PC and webcam and so are very low-cost and potentially suitable for home use. The games are currently in early stages.

Hi, As you spend a lot of time in a sitting. The default position for many people is shoulders forward, hips flexed, back slightly bent, and hunched over. This Position leads to tightness, inflexibility, and poor posture. You need something to open your body back up, pull you into proper alignment, and help you stand up straight. It’s important to stretch out the overactive muscles in the chest and upper back, and stimulate the under-active ones in the mid-back and shoulders. You need flexibility exercises, conditioning exercuses and core muscle execise Here are some stretches and exercises to try at the end of the day, or while you’re at work. Like doing pecotrals stretch Trapezius stretch Hip Flexor stretch Spina stretch in Child pose #Remember to stand once an hour. #Get about 30 minutes of aeribic activity per day like walking Suggest you learn strecthes under guidance of physiotherapist Thanks take care.

Exercise and Vegan diet : Increase the nutritional value

Fellowship in Neurological Rehabilitation, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist
Ask Free Question
Diet and exercise make up two primary ways to build a healthy lifestyle. A typical vegan diet includes grains, vegetables, fruit, legumes (dried beans, peas and lentils), seeds and nuts.A healthy vegan diet need proper planning to get enough protein, iron, zinc, calcium, vitamins D and B12 and omega-3 fats from foods or supplements.
However, for athletes or anyone interested in being physically active on a regular basis, there may be concerns about getting adequate nutrients such as protein to fuel performance and build muscle.

Since vegetarians consume more plant foods on a regular basis, the absorption of several nutrients may be reduced

If you are a vegetarian, READ on for some advice on getting the balance right and for directions on potential vitamin and mineral deficiencies to look out.


1) Protein:
a) Protein is important for building and keeping muscles and red blood cells healthy. Sources of protein include:
b) Sources:
*soy and soy products like tofu, tempeh and fortified soy beverages
dried beans (kidney, black and white beans),
*peas (chickpeas and black-eyed peas) and lentils (red, brown and green lentils)
*grains (quinoa, brown rice, bulgur and oatmeal)
*nuts, nut butters (hazelnuts and almond butter) and seeds (sesame and sunflower)
*peanuts and peanut butter.

2) Iron

a) Iron helps carry oxygen to different parts of the body.
b) Vegans need about twice as much dietary iron as non-vegetarians because the iron from plant foods (non-heme iron) isn’t as well absorbed as the iron from animal foods (heme iron).
c) Sources:
*some nuts and seeds like cashews, almonds, pumpkin and sesame seeds
* prune juice and dried apricots
*vegetables like cooked spinach, kale and potatoes with their skins
* black strap molasses.
d) Caution :
* Iron from vegetarian sources is better absorbed when eaten with vitamin-C rich foods.
* Also remember some produce such as caffeine can inhibit iron absorption. So try and delay that after after-dinner coffee for at least 30 minutes.

3) Vitamin B2

a) It is responsible for a range of bodily functions such as maintaining healthy eyes, skin, and nervous system.
b) sources: most cereals, mushrooms, milk, pumpkin, sesame seeds, and wheat germ
c) Caution:
* It is also vital for iron absorption and the development of red blood cells and anabolic reactions in the body. .

4) Vitamin D

a) Vitamin D helps the body to absorb and use calcium and phosphorus for strong bones and teeth.
b) Sources of vitamin D include: The recommended daily amount is approximately 10 micrograms and can be found in: soya milk, butter, eggs, soya cheeses, yoghurt.
c) It is also well-known that we can absorb vitamin D from the rays of the sun. Gain sufficient ‘lux’ from natural light on a daily basis.

Calcium
5) Calcium
a) helps bones to grow and stay healthy. It also helps muscles to contract, including making the heart beat.
b) sources: protein rich soya milk, yoghurts and cheeses.
*Other good calcium sources include nuts, seeds, figs, rhubarb and a range of beans.
*soy yogurt, fortified soy beverages and other fortified non-dairy beverages like rice and almond beverage
.
6) Zinc
a) Zinc is needed for growth and development. It also helps strengthen the immune system and heal wounds.
b) sources:
*pulses, wheat germ, whole grains,fortified cereals and whole wheat bread
*some nuts like pecans and cashews and their butters like cashew butter
*peanuts and peanut butter
*pumpkin seeds and sesame seed butter (tahini).

7) Omega-3 fats
a) important for eye, nerve and brain development and are helpful in preventing heart disease.
b) sources:
*oils like canola, flaxseed, walnut and soybean
*ground flaxseed
*soybeans, tofu and walnuts.

8) Vitamin B12
a) plays a role in boosting immune function.
b) You only need to find a few micrograms on a daily basis in order to get sufficient vitamin B12.
c) Sources: soya milk, cheeses, yeast extract, vegetable stock and yoghurts.

Depression is a common and disabling illness, affecting over 100 million people worldwide. Depression can have a significant impact on people’s physical health, as well as reducing their quality of life.


But did you know that exercise is also good for your head? The most common treatments for depression, for example, are psychotherapy or medication. Psychologists have found that exercise is a third successful alternative.EXERCISE is an effective, cost-effective treatment for depression and may help in the treatment of other mental disorders.


The results from many studies support the idea that exercise improves mood in people with mild to moderate depression.

By reviewing the results from 51 different studies on exercise for depression, it was revealed that a small but significant increase in self esteem was associated with the reduction of symptoms of depression. As more research is being carried out on exercise for depression, researchers are theorizing that exercise could possibly elevate serotonin levels enough to alleviate mild to moderate depression.

The concept that exercise is an effective treatment for depression is not new. The Cochrane Collaboration, an enormous network of scientific experts around the world recently published (Rimer et al July 2012) a review of 28 articles studying the effects of exercise on depression symptoms with a total of 1101 participants. They showed that exercise significantly improved symptoms of depression, although modestly, but the benefits were long lasting.

" Exercise provides psychological and physical benefits. However, if you also adopt a strategy that engages your mind while you exercise, you can get a whole host of psychological benefits fairly quickly" Quote by James Rippe, M.D.

Hi, pulls, sprains, and tears (all the same thing) range in severity. Depending on the severity of your strain, you may need to take anywhere from a few days to a few months off of exercise so that the muscle can heal itself. When you do head back to the gym, start with gentle bodyweight exercise as it help to heal better. According to information provided. Will suggest you to take break from exercises and give it relative rest and avoid lifting heavy objects or weight lifting exercise. Suggest you get it checked with orthopedician or physiotherapist. You may required x- ray. As some time hairline fracture go undiagnosed (as you heard breaking sound). Thabks and take care.

Hi, don't worry. Toe walking is simply a habit that develops when a child learns to walk. A consistent heel-toe walking usually develops by approximately age 22 months. Persistent toe walking beyond age 2 years merits further evaluation. Various causes of toe walking exist and include both central (brain) and peripheral neurologic disorders (eg, tethered spinal cord, diastematomyelia, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, muscular disorders (eg, congenital muscular dystrophy), and anatomic disorders such as limb length discrepancy. Sometime it can be idiopathic called as habitual toe walking or can be due to contraction of achillis tendon. But suggest you to get it check with pediatric physiotherapist or pediatrician as only one foot is involved or to rule out if any underlying cause is not there. Thanks and take care.

Hi, Its seems your father have complication what wee call Non union or delayed union of fractured bone. There are lots of causes that leads to non union even after rod fixation or any fixation. Reasons cav vary from bone lacks adequate stability, blood flow, or both; diabetes, Thyroid, poor Nurtition, complicated fracture break, Low vitamin D level, infection, etc. They also are more likely if the bone breaks from a high-energy injury, such as from a car wreck, because severe injuries often impair blood supply to the broken bone. Doc have suggested a second surgery as the first surgery have not provided desired result i. E union of fractured femur (thigh) bone. Surgical options include bone graft or bone graft substitute, internal fixation, and/or external fixation. As internal fixation was done for first surgery i. E Rod insertion so your doc have suggested you Bone graft. During this procedure, bone from another part of the body at the fracture site to" jump start" the healing process. A bone graft provides a scaffold on which new bone may grow. Bone grafts also provide fresh bone cells and the naturally occurring chemicals the body needs for bone healing. So union of fracture break can occurs faste. R Non-union conditions often require a long healing period after surgery, and depending on the physical condition of the patient and the extent of the complication, Thanks. Take care.
