Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

Runner's Knee - 7 Ways To help You Treat It!

Runner's Knee - 7 Ways To help You Treat It!

If you are thinking that runner’s knee pain can ony happen to runners or sportsmen, then you are wrong. It can happen to anyone who spends time in doing things that involve bending the knees. It can happen due to activities like walking, biking and jumping. It refers to an aching pain around the kneecap. In medical terms, it is also called patellofemoral pain syndrome.

It doesn’t refer to a particular injury. It is an umbrella term to refer to any pain that happens during knee problems. Here are some of the reasons responsible for runner’s kneecap:

  1. High stress exercises, such as lunges or plyometrics
  2. Direct hit in the knee.
  3. If any of the bones are out of their correct position.
  4. Hypermobile feet and fallen arches or overpronation can cause joint pain as they change the way you walk.
  5. Weak or unbalanced thigh muscles.

What Are the Symptoms of runner's knee?

  1. You can feel the pain in front, behind, or around the kneecap
  2. Pain is felt when you walk, squat, kneel, run, or get up from a chair
  3. Pain is felt when you walk downstairs
  4. Swelling around your knee or a grinding feeling inside the joint

Diagnosis:
It can be diagnosed through physical examination and might require X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans.

What's the treatment for runner's knee?

  1. In most cases, runner’s knee gets better with time. However, the cause of the pain must be identified and then the treatment is done. Here’s what can be done:
  2. Give rest to your knees. It is best to avoid activities that cause the pain.
  3. Apply ice pack on the knees to ease the swelling. Repeat this after every 3 to 4 hours in a day and apply the pack for at least 20 minutes.
  4. Use an elastic bandage or straps to wrap the knees. It gives extra support to the knees and prevents the pain.
  5. Elevate the leg on a pillow at the time of lying down.
  6. Take pain killers like ibuprofen or naproxen.
  7. Indulge yourself in stretching exercises.

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

Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

Nowadays back pain is a very common complaint in young adults. It can be due to various reasons any injury, muscle strain eg-sudden twist while lifting object, bad posture, overuse of muscle or any internal disease like spondylitis, infection etc after looking at your age I can recommend you: precautions: 1. Avoid forward bending, if required then bend your knees first and then bend forward. 2. Avoid weight lifting. 3. Sit in chairs or car seats with proper back support. 4. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back like sidelying. 5. Get enough vit d from sun as vit d keep bones strong including spine, 6. Drink plenty of water to enhance the intervertebral disks 7. Avoid standing in the one position for a long time. 8. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back. Physio care: I would recommend you for i-care treatment that is specially for back or neck pain. Rest required but it doesn't mean a complete bed rest. Do not over exert your body. Work take rest and then work so that you do not feel tired and started paining. Treatment- 1. Apply ice directly to the area of low back pain will decrease swelling and inflammation, and ease your discomfort. Apply it for 10 to 15 minutes only. 2. Relaxing for 5 minutes after ice or heat treatment. Apply any pain relieving ointment eg - volini or oraflame gel etc. Make sure not to do massage with the gel, it should not penetrate the body. 3. Again relax your body for 5 minutes and perform some normal back extension and hamstring stretching exercises to get relief from your pain. While performing exercises if pain occurs then would recommend you to stop doing exercise. Ask someone to massage your painful area as massage helps to induce relaxation, relieve pain, and reduce levels of stress chemicals, such as cortisol and noradrenaline. It will give you pain relief for time being. If you did not understand or have any doubt, please inform. Or alternatively please take advice from a physio as he/she can guide you proper exercise plan which will be beneficial for you after checking grade of your back pain.

Hi! Seems that you have injured yourself a lot. Ligament injury is graded into 3 degrees. 1st is complete tear of the ligament, which solution is Surgery. 2nd and 3rd grade injuries are partial tears which can be managed with immobilisation of the involved joint, no weight bearing, rest, Cold packs and definetely PHYSIOTHERAPY. No other alternative other than exercises. Meet an orthopaedician to the earliest.

If your upper back is paining, the cause of your headache could be of cervical origin. Take care of your posture. Drink lots of fluid. Apply ice pack on neck, dont use soft pillow, keep a towel roll underneath neck. Do some shrugs n neck side bending n see if its better. But if lower back is paining, both should be dealt separately for detailed treatment.
