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.

Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

We need to know the cause of this pain. So, you should go for a check up by orthopedics. But for right now you can dip your hand in some hot water for 15-20 min twice or thrice a day. You can massage slowly it if there is no redness or much swelling. Try to move your hand slowly. Do not lift heavy weights. Do not do much work with that hand. You can visit a physiotherapy center for better relief.

Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury or some other medical conditions including arthritis, patellar tendinitis, acl injury, knee bursitis, torn meniscus, gout and infections. From your symptoms it seems like your wife developing osteo arthritis (oa) of knee. Try some home remedies for pain relief: -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting jogging aerobics, dancing playing sport -use hot or cold packs. By increasing blood flow, hot compresses can ease pain and stiffness. Cold compresses reduce swelling. You may want to experiment with heat versus cold packs to see what works best for you. -stay active, physical activity is one of the best ways to improve your quality of life. Exercise boosts your energy. It can also strengthen your muscles and bones, and help keep your joints flexible. Try resistance training to build stronger muscles. - quads strengthening exercises are helpful oa knee. She needs to reduce her weight as she is 90 kg.

I am having a back bone and neck pain after wakeup from sleep. How can I get the pain relief ?

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
I am having a back bone and neck pain after wakeup from sleep. How can I get the pain relief ?
The most common form of morning stiffness and pain is due to muscle imbalances and poor conditioning of the muscles themselves. Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain: -while sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -find a mattress with back support. A good mattress should provide support for the natural curves and alignment of the spine. Medium-firm mattresses usually provide more back pain relief than firm mattresses. -do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back -avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -stretching and strengthening exercises are important. -a physiotherapist can tell you when to begin stretching and strengthening exercises and learn how to safely, easily, stretch and strengthen the weak and tight areas of your lower back and hips which cause pain while sleeping. Best wishes.

The best way to get a flat stomach is to try high intensity cardio. This is because it burns a larger number of calories than low intensity cardio. Playing sports such as football, basketball, cricket, tennis and other sports is also helpful in promoting weight loss. You should perform cardio exercises each day for 60 minutes. Brisk walking is considered an effective cardio workout for those who suffer from joint problems, as it does not place much stress on the joints, compared to other cardio exercises such as running or cycling. For back pain take Mag phos 6x - 4 tabs twice daily

Add two cups of Epsom salt in Luke warm water in a bucket. Dip you leg for about 20 minutes. This will give you instant relief. You could add 5 drops of lavender essential oil to this water. This will calm down all the stress. Let me know if it helped.

Activities of Daily Living Like Accessing a Car s Trunk After a Disc Pain

Activities of Daily Living Like Accessing a Car s Trunk After a Disc Pain

Activities of Daily Living

Activities of daily living (ADLs) are activities that we do on a regular basis as part of our daily life: driving, bathing, shaving, housework, yard work , dressing, and toileting. In healthcare, a great emphasis is placed on the importance of being able to perform these basic functions of normal living. This article is dedicated to helping anyone with a lumbar disc herniation adapt his or her life to allow healing to take place.One of the key components to healing from a disc injury is to remove the cause of injury and the causes of irritation. In this chapter we will identify ways to protect the spine from further injury while participating in activities of daily living.The prevailing concept in protecting the lumbar discs is based on maintaining a neutral arch of the spine in activities of daily living and avoiding flexion of the spine (bending forward).

Bending the spine forward distorts the nucleus of the discs in a potentially injurious manner.

Maintaining a health lordosis (arch) is protective of the lumbar disc.

Accessing a Car’s Trunk

1.Do not bend at the waist to access a car’s trunk. This is especially dangerous after prolonged driving (due to creep)

2.When accessing the trunk of a car, avoid bending at the waist. Instead, place a foot on the bumper or use the “golfer’s tilt” to minimize the risk of injury. Strive to maintain a neutral arch in the lower back.

3.The golfer’s tilt allows a protective cantilever effect to protect the disc from flexion. In a golfer’s tilt all motion occurs at the hip, not the spine.
