1> a heating pad may be applied to warm up the muscles (for not more than 10 minutes) prior to doing exercising and stretching, and an ice pack may be used afterwards to sooth the muscles and soft tissues. 2> back strengthening and low impact aerobics are the best exercises for back pain. 3> hamstring stretching will give a lot of relief in back. 4> swimming is the best strengthening exercise. To know the exercises in detail, you can contact me through lybrate. Regards!

Always make sure that you use the therapeutic hot agents when the injury is in the chronic stage. They can also be used prior to physiotherapy or exercise to decrease muscle tension and increase flexibility.

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.

Walking is a safe exercise but due to you being overweight, your feet are unable to take strain of extra load. Try cycling insted & swimming if facility is available or do other exercises which involve the entire body instead of just lower limbs. At 28 you should start dieting & eating healthy without being conscious about tough diet charts & making healthy eating will become a way of life, not a punishment. No sugar or sweets or bad fats through street food and burgers etc. Lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits which will give you enough minerals and vitamins to live healthy, but no juices, have fiber through these, because it is filling and does cleanse the food pipe. Drink lots of water, preferrably the home made ors variety with juice of a lemon with warm water with a pinch of salt added along with a spoon of sugar/honey. Good proteins are filling and nourashing too- boiled egg/ toned milk/ curd/ chhachh/a katori of assorted nuts for good fats & proteins/ dry roasted chane/ 2-3 dates. Apple or orange or banana as a snack but no packed foods to munch. Eat regularly & eat nourishment. No smoking or exposure to pollution. One full meal of daal-roti-chawal-sabji during evenings only for satiety only as by now your food pipe has had good nutrients, lose weight @ 5 kg only & slowly your heart beat will stabalise too.

Lower Back Pain: Exercises for it!

Orthopedist, Delhi
Lower Back Pain: Exercises for it!

The lower back or the lumbar area is the region that lies right below the rib cage. Pain in the lower back is usually a result of persistent muscle spasms that make it a chronic pain. While many people suffer from this kind of pain at some point at the other, there are few who actually take up exercise as a long-term solution to deal with the pain. A proper exercise schedule and regular yoga can actually strengthen your lower back and help it support the spinal cord in a better manner. Also, most orthopedic specialists recommend constant movement to alleviate the painful symptoms of lower back pain. Do go through this list of exercises to find one that suits you.

  • Partial crunches: This one requires you to lie down, prop your knees up with your feet firmly on the ground and your hands behind your head. Now bring your body partially up and stop shy of doing a full on sit up. This will help in relaxing the muscles in the lower back, to a great extent.
  • Hamstring stretches: Get on your back and prop up one knee. Take a towel and loop it under the ball of your other foot. Now lift and hold as you press your foot into the towel, to gradually relieve some of that stress as it plays on your lower back.
  • Ankle and heels: The classic ankle pump involves lying flat on your back and stretching your feet before you begin to move your ankles in an up and down motion. Repeat it ten times for each set. You can combine this exercise with the heel slide where you have bend and straighten your knee ten times each, in the same position as you lie flat on your back.
  • Wall squats: While actual squats can be painful if you are suffering from lower back pain, you can take the support of a nearby wall for squats that will work the muscles in a more soothing manner and give you a good workout at the same time.


Touching your toes, running on the treadmill, sit-ups and other forms of intense exercise that make the back work too hard should be avoided if you are suffering from lower back pain.

Back ache can be due to several reasons. It can be muscular, related to disc degeneration or prolapse, joint irritation or nerve pinching. Most common is muscle pain due to tight and weak back and abdominal muscles. Keep a positive attitude, focus more on keeping good posture especially when sitting for long hours, use lumbar support. Take frequent breaks and stretch in between. Try changing sleeping habits. Try hot or cold therapy as tolerated. Wish you speedy recovery.

According your age this may be deficiency of vit 12 and calcium levels. Avoid long standing and do ice pack on the pain swelling area for 20 minutes and do calf stretching exercise.

Hello lybrate user knee pain due to obesity is a common major problem. Because hip, knee &ankle joints are weight bearing joints and knee is most movable joint during household works or other physical activities. Mostly due to adapted sedentary life style physical workout like cycling, walking &running are not part of our daily routine. She must try to reduce weight by some sitting position exercise, take high fiber diet, add salad or juicy fruits in diet, plenty of water intake, etc. Don't afraid from surgery" surgery" means patient become independent and pain-free joints, easy to perform her/his daily living activities. Before surgery ankle&hip joints exercises to improve strength of joints, knee joints too, especially flexor and extensor muscle exercises to increase muscle power regular for two months. Then surgery will be successful. After surgery regular one month exercises of knee joint will help to relax the muscle and increase efficiency.
