Do I nedd to do surgery in future? Or wts d % of chances dat I need to do it in future? 2) is there any restriction on exercise n joining gym? As I want to reduce weight. 3) what should I do to know whether problem is still present der?

N its purpose? 5) any diet for me? 6) what activities should I avoid to avoid problem in future? 7) since I got injured in v young age can v say that injury got healed lastly n wil not occur in future?
I have a pain in every single joint of my body. And can't even sit, stand and lay properly because of my back bone. Please help me out.
The pressure inside the discs is higher with sitting than standing or lying. The sacral table rams up under the descending spine and the base is pinched in the middle as if caught in a vertical vice. Over time, fluid leaks out of the discs (they lose approximately 10 percent of their total fluid) and the stacked bony segments settle together, becoming a semi-rigid tubular mass.
Most of the fluid escapes within the first hour or two of sitting, but the discs keep squeezing drier the longer they stay compressed.People who sit for long hours to work usually feel cast in the back when they get up. It can take several minutes before the base of the spine drops down and movement gets easier. If long hours of sitting are combined with low levels of activity the lowest discs never properly reflate.The discs puff up again with fluid faster than they expel it.
This is partly due to the concentration of electrolytes in the nuclear gel which drags in water under osmotic pressure, but also through the suction effect of the spine elongating when unweighted.
The disc puffs up more quickly if you lie on your back and bring your knees to your chest which is why this simple action is such an important part of self-treatment. Bouncing your knees to chest and squatting exercises through the day help counteract the fluid loss from the discs, mainly by hinging open the back of your spine.
On the other hand, using a back block opens the front of your spine. It passively hyper-extends (over arches) your spine which not only opens the front of the discs and drags fluid in but also reverses the slumped posture of sitting. As part of yourself treatment program, you should use the block every day. I promise you will get addicted to the sensation of the segments pulling apart when you can almost feel the flattened mesh walls of the discs being tugged up and water being dragged in from the vertebral bodies through the sieve-like vertebral end-plates.
Many hours of sitting can also cause adaptive shortening of other structures around the low back which makes resuming a normal posture even more difficult. For example, the hip flexor muscles at the front of your hips are very powerful and tighten quickly when they spend long periods puckered in a shortened state.
Their tethering causes a sense of tightness across the front of the hips and down the thighs which makes it difficult to stand up straight. In the long term, this tightness has adverse consequences because it causes the front of the pelvis to tilt down at the front, which throws the spine out of balance and creates a typical ‘bottom out’ appearance.
Tight hip flexors also make you take much shorter steps because the legs cannot angle back properly at the hips. Again this is bad for the back because in making a decent stride, the spine must twist lefts and right to compensate for the poor hip mobility. If the sitting posture is especially slumped it causes adaptive contracture of the anterior longitudinal ligament which runs down the front of the vertebral bodies like a long elastic tape.
In healthy circumstances its role is to limit the backward arching movement of the spine, but when it adaptively shortens it tethers the spine over in a hoop at the front, like an over-tight bowstring. People are often aware of their worsening posture and feel they are being kept stooped as if their shirt is tucked into their waistband.
Using the back block is the natural antidote for sitting. It helps undo all the problems acquired by hours spent crimped at the hips and knees with the shoulders curled forward over the task at hand. It opens out the bowed-over spine and chest; it pushes in the bottom and stretches out the front of the hips as the legs drop down to the floor.

Knee pain is one of the most common and painful ailments that can limit mobility. Injuries can result in cartilage or meniscal tears or sprains too. Obesity is another reason because of which knee pain is on the rise. Also, regular wear and tear of ligaments and tendons around the knees due to old age is another cause. These days, with reduced physical activities and sedentary lifestyles, the rate at which knees are wearing out has also become accelerated. Whatever the reason, a correct diagnosis followed by prompt treatment can help. Over the years, physiotherapy has been playing an important role in treating knee injuries. Whether to supplement the various drugs to reduce pain and inflammation or to avoid surgery, physiotherapy has helped many and its popularity is growing every day. Here are some ways that physiotherapy can help reduce pain.
- Improve flexibility of tendons: The knee cap is an area where there are lot of tendons and ligaments, coordinating to enable movement. Careful exercising can ensure that the flexibility of tendons and ligaments is improved, thereby making your knee movement easier and less painful.
- Improves blood supply: As we all know, proper movement requires good blood supply. Exercising with special focus on the knee ensures that blood supply is improved, and thereby the supporting ligaments and tendons function optimally.
- Enhances the knee cap function: The knee cap is that portion which joins your thigh bone to your calf bones. This is prone to slip out of place, especially with arthritis and injuries. This can be painful and limit movement to a great degree. Focused exercises aimed at improving knee cap function will ensure that the knee cap has a wider range of function, and does not slip out of its socket easily.
- Reduce rigidity: Once you start physiotherapy, you will feel your knees getting more flexible. The rigidity that had set in as a result of injuries and/or old age will also reduce over a period of time.
- Slow down the wear and tear: When you start physiotherapy after knee damage, continuing the exercise routine, of course with expert guidance, can reduce the pace at which further damage might happen. A word of caution though. Be sure to consult an experienced physiotherapist before you begin. Exercising in a bad manner can do equal or more harm than the original injury or old age itself.
