Popping sound in my left shoulder. I dont have any pain just a popping sound since last 3,4 months it started after my gym sessions.

Gentle Shoulder Stretching. Core Strengthening Exercises. Gentle Neck Exercises. Avoid sleeping on affected side. Warm up and cool down is a must. Contrast bath---It is a form of treatment shoulder is applied warm water followed by the immediate application of the shoulder with ice water. This procedure is repeated several times, alternating hot and cold. Note that the treatment should always end in the ice water, as heat will induce the body's inflammatory response, while cold helps to decrease inflammation.

I have a serious back pain from past few days due to which I am not able to sleep correctly?

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
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 --apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. -stretching and strengthening exercises are important. -a physiotherapist can tell you when to begin stretching and strengthening exercises and how to do them. Best wishes.

Are there any exercises that can be done to cure chondromalacia? Do I have to keep myself away from sports?

Merrithew Stott Pilates, Bachelor of Physiotherapy
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Goodevening mam yes I ahve understood your question. Firstly you must start with a couple of isometric exercises for your knee. Place a towel while lying down under your knee and press it down till about 10 seconds and then release. Then you should raise your leg upto 45 degerees and hold for 10 seconds. Secondly do active knee bending and straightening of knee while in sitting position. Do these exercises every day twice. Please let me know how your feeling.

Super Fact of the Day: The load distributed over your kneecap can be up to 5 times your body weight!
Your knees play an important role in weight bearing activities, such as walking, running and going up/down stairs. The load distributed over your kneecaps can be up to 5 times your body weight, especially while climbing down stairs. That is why overweight people often develop knee problems.

Would you like to share this interesting fact with family or friends? go ahead and share!

Ayurveda, Bundi
It's not a hard and fast rule. Though postures play a role but at your age sex may not be that much aggressive. Herbs to use are 10 herb roots decoction and strengthening herbs to alleviate backache and weakness. For the time being pl take turmeric and withania somnifera combo with milk.

Homeopathy offers a much better treatment option for people suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis. That is because Homeopathy does not aim at providing short term relief for RA. On the contrary, Homeopathic medicines for RA are aimed at completely curing and eradicating the inflammation of the joints. Of course, this requires some time as the immune system has to get back into its original shape where it recognizes one’s own body as a friend and not as an enemy. In my experience, Homeopathic treatment is by far the best treatment for RA when one considers the long term effects of the treatment. It is purely a natural treatment for RA and no steroids or synthetic medicines are used.

My mother is suffering with leg pains, she is at 50. Could you please let me know how to overcome?

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do stretching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you don't get relief see a physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.
