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).

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, Sorry to hear this. Fracture at her age may be due to osteoporosis which is a severe deficiency of vitamin D. As far her spinal stenosis is concerned the treatment is based on multiple factors like age, her exact symptoms, findings of clinical examination, other medical conditions etc. Therefore it is difficult to suggest further treatment without all this information. Please see a neurosurgeon or a spine surgeon for a detailed examination. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Best wishes.

I am 63 yrs old I am having pain in back side of foot I am not able to walk by preesing the back side of foot.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. This kind of pain is usually due to inflammation of your heel fascia especially if you are feeling pain in your heel region. It is chronic pain which gets aggravated especially when you walk more and is better with rest. Treatment modalities are aimed at relieving inflammation of the fascia, like ice packs, physical therapy, footwear modification and anti-inflammatory therapy. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Press the point on the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from toe in the foot 20 times by pressing and releasing with a blunt edge of a pen. Further rotate your foot clockwise and anticlockwise 10 times. Massage your leg with both hands.

Goodevening lybrate-user kumar I have read your question. First of all back pain is very common nowdays. Due to sedentary life style and not doing proper exercises our back problems have increased. Very important point improper posture causes most of the back problems. I would advice you a few simple but very important exercises. > lie down on your back and then lift you hip up and hold for 10 seconds. You must bend your knees when you do that. > tilt your hip side ways right and left. > then in the lying down position you could raise one leg at a time and hold for 10 counts. >then get back to lie down on your stomach. These set of exercises are for spinal extension. You could raise one leg in the extended position and then bring it down. > then do a cat camel position so that you dip your spine downwards and upwards. >then stand against a wall and do squatting exercises that will compress your spine and then this will increase disc space. Kindly do all thses exercises morning and evening 5 times each. Apart from all this you take a hot water fermentation for your back atleast for 20 mins. Preacuations - do not suddenly bend down and lift any heavy object - you could lie down with a pillow under your knees. - do regular exercises and eat healthy diet. - make sure that your posture is straight and you do not stoop to fowrad or backward. - do not continuously sit in front of the computer for long hours. Please let me know how you are feeling after 20 days. You will see a difference.

I am working in office and continues sit in chair. Then I have back problem how can I solve it.
Hello lybrate user, sitting for long hours in an office is a common cause for back pain. Initially you can take some painkillers for the same. Rest for one or two days may be required. Once adequate pain relief occurs, begin with some physiotherapy exercises for your back like stretching followed a few days later by gradual back muscle strengthening exercises. Your posture should be erect while sitting for long hours with intermittent periods of rest and stretching every hour for 5 to 10 mins. You should also use a chair with a good back rest for the intermittent periods of rest. Maintain your weight by balanced diet and regular exercises. Hope this helps.
