For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

I underwent total knee replacement of right knee 4 months back but still has pain and life does not straighten up. I have discontinued physiotherapy thru hosp as lady physiotherapy workers (all of them claim ,they can be called as Doctors) only tell you to do ex yourself and only count 1,2 ,3. However, the leg needs massage and pressure by a strong person. Now somebody tells me for total knee replacement, I do not have to use hot pad (since metal inside) and massage not good for knee as it may displace the metal implant. I do lot of walking, but again ,they say this is no alternative to physiotherapy Your advice, Sir Surjit (66 years male) Delhi.

I am sure the pain must not be so severe enough as it was before the surgery. Now thats its been 4 months, its expected that you walk independently and carry all your day to day activities. Little bit of pain on and off can come and go. The main stay of treatment remains exercises. Please see I am saying exercises and not physiotherapy to emphasise on the fact that its you who have to do it as much as you can and do not depend on the physiotherapist. The knee extension (straightening) should be full. Bending will depend on your pre operation status. I do not think you should loose hope. Do as much as possible of quadriceps exercises and do not loose hope. Total knee repacement is one of the most successful and reproducible surgery after cataract and has got good results. Cheers.

Back pain that is associated with day time sedentary jobs like computer professional s are associated with paraspinal muscle spasms. The best way to tackle this sort of pain is to do well spaced stretching exercises of the back, back extension exercises, using hot water bags to provide relief and avoiding stooping posture while sitting. Posture also plays a very important part in back pain, always maintain a straight posture while sitting. While getting up from the bed try to first go on your left or right side of the body and get up side ways. Avoid cruntches or sit-ups: they may increase the pressure on your back and may predispose to slip disc. Always maintain a healthy lifestyle in terms of regular brisk walking, meditation, eating healthy. P. S: try to avoid pain killers (analgesics) as much as possible as many are associated with side effects that you may not be aware of. Stay healthy. Stay happy god bless you.

This might be due to lack of blood circulation in the hands and we suggest to do contrast bath therapy ie. Immersing in cold/hot water in the interval of 3-5 minutes which will help you reduce the pain and it will also improve the range of movements in the hand

Dear Lybrate user avoid facewashes and creams, use gram fluor and turmeric, eat more vegetables and whole fruits and drink plenty of water, exercise daily ,apply pure coconut oil daily before sleep, since acne has deep internal causes it needs a constitutional treatment for cure ,any external application can not cure may only palliate or suppress the malady.

Masturbation reduces blood and also causes weakness of bones. Stop this habit and instead make fresh fruits and vegetables as your regular food habit, and drink cow's milk in night before sleeping.

This could be due to OA knee &/Or obesity. Physiotherapy along with medicines will help. Do knee exercises. It may have to be further investigated Rule out diabetes & vit.D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with a soft bedding on it. Any way take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. IBUPROFEN 200mg OD & SOS x 5days CALDIKID PLUS (mankind) 1 tab ODx10days You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan.. Don't ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

1. 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. 2. 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. 3. 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. 4. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. 5. 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.
