My hand was broken 3 months ago. I got plastered and it was a minor one. Within one month my hand was ok. But from 2 to 3 days it is paining very much. I can't even lift my hand up. What's the solution for this?

Slim Women, Health & Myths

MPTh/MPT, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Myth 1: Working out would make me even thinner!

We always have an astonished reaction to this one! Contrary to the myth, when designed properly, workout programmes can help you gain some good weight which is mainly muscle. Who doesn’t want to get stronger?


Myth 2: Lifting weights is going to make me a bulky woman!

Absolutely not! Not if you don’t want to. Designing the programme is the key here. Working out could improve your flexibility, muscular endurance and stamina without causing any muscular hypertrophy / growth.


Myth 3: Why do I need to do weights? I am already in shape!

One of the most common menopausal disorders found in women is OSTEOPOROSIS which is characterized by reduced bone strength. It is commonly seen in the “Fragile/ thin” elderly women. Research shows us, women who lift weights during their 20’s to 30’s are less susceptible to osteoporosis than those who do not. I would say to all those women who believe in this myth, DO IT FOR YOUR BONES, THEY WILL THANK YOU ONE DAY!


Myth 4: I can eat all I want because I am not going to get any fatter!

Unfortunately, this isn’t true. We wish it were, really. But it isn’t. Thinness is a genetic blessing to many but it is still important to eat healthy. Finally it is the cholesterol levels in your blood that will matter and they will be affected due to long term, faulty eating habits irrespective of body structure.



5: My daily chores burn enough energy. I do not need a gym!

American College of Sports Medicine recommends at least 30 minutes of “structured” physical activity on most days of the week for the “general” population. Neither does this definition include our day – to – day physical activity and nor does it differentiate between overweight and slim women.


We would like to conclude by highlighting that fitness is a group of performance attributes! Finally, it all boils down to the ease with which you climb up a flight of stairs or how effortlessly you can lift your own travel bags! Thus, irrespective of body type, structured exercise is a must for all women.

My son got a ligament bucket handle tear on his right knee. Can exercise help him to come out of this? can he play cricket after that!

Physio can help especially if the tear is small and partial. All the exercises need to be done under the supervision of a physio for at least 3 weeks. Thereafter, depending on how well your son is doing, physio might advise to continue exercising at home for another 3 to 4 weeks. Yuvraj singh, suresh raina & manoj tiwari all have had ligament tears. So we hope that solves the second part of your question & serves as an encouragement in your testing times. Regards, team.

Hello, we understand your situation. We would advise the following exercises: 1) please use steam or a hot pad on your knees 3 times a day, provided there is not much swelling. Incase of swelling, please use an ice pack. 2) keep both your feet on the bed straight. Place a roll of towel under your knees. Press knees to squeeze towel. Hold for 10 counts & release. Repeat this 10 times x 2 hourly. Regards

Low Back Pain !

MPTh/MPT, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Low Back Pain !
Allow me to quote the legendary Michael Jackson here, “YOU ARE NOT ALONE”. Low backache is one of the commonest ailments globally. Although it varies in intensity, almost all individuals at some point in their life or the other undergo low backache.

A very common question we face at our centre is, “Will I be able to resume weight training ever?” Justifiable apprehension as the last thing they (and we) want is a relapse.

The following are some precautions which can allow one to exercise safely post severe backache.

1) Doctor: Consult a medical doctor / orthopaedic surgeon before commencing your exercise programme.

2) Physiotherapist: Sit down for a detailed counselling and understanding of the problem with your Gym – Physio and set goals accordingly.

3) Start slow: Gradual loading is the key to a successful exercise programme.

4) Rehabilitative exercises first: Your trainer is advised to integrate rehabilitative exercises in your programme at the offset.

5) Begin with stabilization exercises: At Inch By Inch – The Body Temple, we have a specialized programme called the “Rebalance” programme which is a strategically modified core programme that ensures low back safety.

6) Train accessory muscles unrelated to the back: Although all the muscles of the body are affected with backache, post rehabilitation weight training for accessory muscles such as biceps, triceps etc can be commenced safely while ensuring position providing sufficient back rest during all exercises.

7) Ensure good form: Good form is crucial for all individuals with or without back pain. With previous episode of low backache, this becomes even more crucial.

8) Listen to your body: Respect the signs your body delivers to you. If you wake up in the morning with increased uneasiness, local muscle fatigue or slight pain, take the day off! But do not make it a habit!

we would suggest you to do hot and cold water fomentation: take two tubs. Fill one with warm to hot water. Another one with ice or ice water. Dip your feet for 2 minutes in hot, alternate with 2 minutes in cold. Do this for about 10 minutes in total x 4 times a day. Report how you felt after doing this. Regards,
