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 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.

What's the Difference Between a Strain and Sprain?

What's the Difference Between a Strain and Sprain?

What is a strain?
A strain is a muscular injury caused due to poor posture or any physical activity that exerts a lot of pressure on the muscle. It is nothing, but a torn muscle or tissue connected to a bone. A strain can occur in any muscle of the body, but it most commonly occurs in the lower back, neck, shoulder, and hamstring, which is the muscle behind your thigh.

What is pain?
A pain is an extreme sensation of discomfort or distress that might be caused due to external stimulus. In a nutshell, it’s an unpleasant sensory or emotional experience.

One can differentiate between a pain and a strain through the following ways

  1. Symptoms: One of the major symptoms of a strain is acute pain. Simultaneously, the torn muscle will be sore; it will be discoloured and swollen. Movement will be limited in that part of the body and the patient will get a ‘knotted-up’ feeling because muscular injury weakens or stiffens the muscle. Another major symptom of strain includes muscular spasm. Pain on the other hand is a state of physical and sensory discomfort caused due to an external stimulus. The affected area will not have the aforementioned symptoms and is not limited to muscular injury.
  2. Length of time: One of the key ways to differentiate between a muscle strain and pain is the amount of time the symptoms persist. Normal pain lingers for about three days and is reduced with medication. In case of muscular strain, the pain lasts longer because the injury is internal. The muscles are sore and stiff and remain weak until treated.
  3. Type of distress: The feeling of pain usually persists irrespective of the fact that the patient is at rest or is not moving; while in a muscular strain, the patient is not distressed at rest but experiences major discomfort when trying to use or move the affected part of the body.

The sensation of pain usually worsens with activity. On the other hand a muscular strain is treated with muscular exercises such as stretching. If the patient doesn’t use the affected muscle for a long period of time, it tends to worsen.

Try sitting on a soft cushion at work to avoid constant pressure on the coccyx. And try taking a break every hour and walk a little. Ultrasonic treatment at a physiotherapy clinic will give you relief.

This injury is a total disruption of the most important stabilizing ligament in the knee. The anterior cruciate ligament is located centrally within the knee, behind the kneecap, making it difficult for the to specifically localize the injury. - this injury occurs when there twisting of knee, i.e while playing sports Treatment usually involves: 1 Ice- to reduce swelling or you can also do contrast bath 2 elevation by applying 2 pillows below your ankle 3 compression by application of bandage to control swelling. - Walking (weight-bearing) is preferable if muscular control of the injured leg is adequate. - Knee straightening (extension) and bending (flexion) are encouraged by gentle stretching, isometrics of quads (withyour knee straight and back supported, keep towel roll beneath your knee joint abd you have press that towel till you count 30 ,do 10 repeations for 3 times per day )or pool therapy. Arthroscopic surgery should be undertaken in young, active patients because the ACL will not heal unless surgically operated. This patient group should avoid aggressive sports in the future. - If the shock-absorbing cartilages (menisci) are torn extensively, surgery may be required even in less active patients. Precautions: 1 prevent excessive swelling in your knee, calf and ankle regions by conscientious elevation and frequent muscle contractions. In cases where surgical treatment is necessary, make sure that early knee stiffness is improving prior to surgery. 120 degrees of flexion is recommended prior to surgery. So there is need for physiotherapy sessions before surgery to increase your joint range and muscle strength to avoid stiffness of joint. 2Complete rupture of the ACL can also, affect knee function for a lifetime and can lead to osteoarthritis if not treated correctly. 3 Do not participate in jumping, cutting or twisting sports until you have recovered fully from you injury, and the doctor has cleared you to do so. Recovery.
