Ways To Manage Knee Pain With Physiotherapy!

Ways To Manage Knee Pain With Physiotherapy!

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.

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

Losing Weight vs. Healthy Body Composition

Losing Weight vs. Healthy Body Composition

Ever wondered why another person who has the same height and weight as you looks fitter and thinner? Weight loss is a constant challenge for most of us. However, we tend to measure our progress only by the numbers seen on a weighing scale. While this does give an overall picture of how much weight you may have lost or gained, it does not tell you how much fat you have lost. 

The human body is made up of three main components; lean mass that includes bones muscles and internal organs, fatty tissue and water. This is known as body composition. Women tend to have more fatty tissue than men. The amount of fat in the body also increases with age. During the first phase of a weight loss program, most of the weight lost is due to a loss of water weight. It is in the second or third week of the program that a person will begin to lose fat. The ideal goal of weight loss is to reduce the amount of fat in the body while maintaining a healthy muscle mass. 

To reduce weight while maintaining a healthy body composition you will need to have a well-balanced diet and exercise regularly. Here are a few tips to keep in mind with respect to your diet. 

Eat Plenty of Proteins 

When it comes to maintaining muscle mass, proteins are the most important component of your diet. Ideally, you should consume 1.6-2.6g of proteins per kilo of your goal body weight. Proteins can be eaten in many forms. For non-vegetarians it can take the form of lean white meats and fish. Vegetarians can increase their protein intake by consuming dairy products like cheese and paneer and soya products. 

Eat right before and after working out 

Your body needs energy for a workout. For this reason, it is important to snack on something healthy a little before starting a workout. Consuming small amounts of proteins and carbohydrates 1-2 hours before a workout gives your body the energy it requires and ensures that you do not burn muscle mass instead of fat. Similarly, a protein snack after working out replenishes any muscle mass lost while working out. 

Cycle your calories 

Reducing your calorie deficit drastically may help you lose weight but this will be muscle loss. Hence create a schedule where your calorific intake n days when you workout is higher than on those when you do not. 

Aerobic exercises such as brisk walking and jogging can help you burn calories while strengthening your bone density. Strength training can also help boost metabolism and build muscles. In addition, exercises such as squats, planks, pushups and lunges help prevent a loss of muscle mass due to aging and keep the body lean.

Exercises To Strengthen Your Back And Prevent Back Pain!

You probably spend a whole day working at your office when your back remains in the same position. Then when you come back from work, you complain about your back pain, put some medicine and hope it goes away the next day. However, in such cases there are chances that the pain might return after a few days. You may not be aware of the fact, but there are certain fairly simple exercises you can do to strengthen your back and prevent back pain. Here are some of them.

1.Opposite arm leg raises
Lie on your stomach with one arm in the air as your starting position. Then finish the exercise by slowly lifting your leg. Hold this position for two seconds and then repeat this for the other arm and leg as well.

2. Prone hold
Hold a posture where you are holding your entire body weight on just your toes and your elbows for as long as it is pain-free.

3. Supermans
Lie on your belly with your arms above your head. Slowly lift your arms and legs from this position as far as possible and then put it down again. Repeat this as many times as you can do it in a pain free way. Once again, it is imperative to not do this when it is painful as you may get injured.

4. Side holds
To do this, you have to be on your side putting your entire body weight on the side of your foot and your elbow. Hold it for as long as you can maintain the correct posture and it is pain free for you.

5. Resistance band rotation
Stand straight up or on your knees with your back straight up. Then using a resistance band rotate your body back and forth.

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

Lower Back Pain - Can Physiotherapy Help Treat It?

Lower Back Pain - Can Physiotherapy Help Treat It?

Low back pain is one of the most common medical problems and occurs due to injury associated with the nerves, bones, and muscles of the back. The pain can vary from a sharp shooting pain that happens at various intervals to a gnawing pain that can last for weeks on end. While the former can go away with some muscle relaxant, the latter may need a combination of medications and exercise.

Common reasons include improper sleeping posture, lifting, fracture, lack of exercise, disk injuries, arthritis, and many more. Most of these instances would lead to medium to long term pain that will not subside on its own. Physiotherapy has been proven to provide very good relief and render it pain-free.

The aim of physiotherapy is 3-fold - reduce pain, improve movement, and maintain the spinal function in the long run. Most often, the therapy sessions would last for about 4 weeks when the regular course of medications have not helped much.

The nerves, muscles, bones, and disks of the low back are supported by the abdominal muscles and the back muscles. The intent of the exercise is to strengthen these two sets of muscles so that the spine/low back per se is not very susceptible to injury.  The exercises would be a combination of stretching followed by strengthening and conditioning, all aimed at these two sets of muscles.

Some common exercises include bottom to heels stretch, knee rolls, back extensions, deep abdominal strengthening, and pelvic tilts.

In addition to being used a sole means of treatment, physiotherapy also is used in back pain to treat severe cases both pre and post surgically. What is corrected by surgery needs to be enhanced by the regular exercises as prescribed by the doctor.

One disclaimer that a doctor might want to give is that the physiotherapy may not be beneficial if exercises are not done properly or if the patients don't adhere to the scheduled prescription. The long-term success depends not just on getting the relief but on following the maintenance exercises that are prescribed. This is more important and helps avoid relapse of the back pain. A good posture and improved core stability with ongoing exercises is the key to success of physiotherapy in low back pain. 

While most people consider low back pain as a chronic condition, it can be managed effectively. It is important to realize that there is no overnight cure and that it may not get better on its own. Physiotherapy is a very good intervention; however, it will depend on the severity of pain and how it affects the patient's lifestyle. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

Heel pain can be due to plantarfascitis or calcaneal spurs most commonly but there might be some other reasons also, try taking contrast bath for the right heel, meaning take 2 tubs, one of hot water and the other ice cold water, immerse you foot first for 25-30 sec in ice cold water then immerse for 3-4 min in hot tub, repeat this procedure 3-4 times and see if it helps, if not consult a physiotherapist for the treatment, also get an x-ray done to rule out he spurs, also correct footwear advice is necessary for the long term benefit.

You are having headache due to exposure to loud music and gastric issue,better would be to take meals on time and not to keep too much gap in between your meals,take antacid on an empty stomach in the morning like pan-D ,also drink lots of water,if you have migraine then avoid triggering factors like strongly flavoured food,strong perfumes,cheese,chocolate and extreme climates..

You have coccydinia, you should stop lifting weights at the gym in this condition. If you do so your problem will get worsened, best would be to take physiotherapy treatment from a good physiotherapist ,he will help you to ease out the pain and other problems associated with it. Also back/core strengthening exercises need to be done on regular basis so that you are better able to exercise at the gym! Medicines will just block your pain for a certain period but will not have any improvement on your muscle condition and nor it will help you gain strength. If you know swimming its a good exercise to begin with! Can take ice pack 2-3 times a day to relieve the pain.
