I was suffering from ACL sprain grade 1 six week ago. Now that the injury is healed after how much time should I comfortably return to sports again without any future injury so that proper strengthening of ligaments can take place.

Wear knee cap so that you will feel firm while walking or climbing stairs. This is a general strain and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try! One time you can do hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain. You can take Ultrasonic therapy in one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics which would help to heal the damaged cartilages along with shortwave diathermy which would help to improve the blood circulation. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation.

I am 60 yrs old male suffering from limb girdle muscular deystrophy. Have you any treatment for this disease?

Dear , there is no known treatment for muscular dystrophy. Please don' t be fooled by quacks claiming to give you complete cure. Excessive exercising will worsen this condition. Light physiotherapy helps to maintain limb mobility. Your orthopedic doctor can prescribe you some supporting braces depending on the severity of your condition.

Neck And Shoulder Pain - What Does It Indicate?

Neck And Shoulder Pain - What Does It Indicate?

The stabbing pain that you experience around the neck and shoulder region should never be ignored as they may indicate health problems that require medical attention. There are certain points that you need to keep in mind the if you experience prolonged pain in these areas of the body.

1. Neck injury - Your neck and shoulder pain should be seen as a warning sign that you need to take a look at the neck injury you may have sustained during a rear-end automobile accident. More specifically, whiplash injuries that happen when the head experiences a sudden backward and forward jerk, straining the tissues of the neck. 

2. Pain in these areas of the body could indicate abnormalities in the vertebrae of your neck such as herniated disc, causing added pressure on the nerves of the spinal cord.

3. Your neck and shoulder pain complaint may also point towards muscle strains. Lifestyle factors like working long hours in front of laptops or desktops leave you with no time and zero energy to exercise, resulting in serious neck and shoulder pains.

4. Your neck and shoulder pain may also indicate the problem of cervical spondylosis. This is a degenerative disc disease, which is characterised by severe pain that originates from the neck and radiates till the shoulders.

5. Even heart problems, such as a heart attack can cause pain in the shoulder and the neck. When this happens, the condition is known as referred pain.

6. Adopting an improper body posture during lifting of heavy materials can induce pain in your body parts, with neck and shoulders being the most vulnerable areas.

7. You may be suffering from a condition known as rotator cuff injury in which the group of ligaments and muscles that support the shoulder get injured during lifting or playing any sport.

To avoid aggravating the pain from becoming more severe, you shouldn't ignore any ache that arises from these areas. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pain management specialist.

What is the Effect of Poor Posture? How can Physiotherapy help?

What is the Effect of Poor Posture? How can Physiotherapy help?

The spine is a foundational structure of the human body that supports both the head and the neck. The neck is especially vulnerable to the damaging effects of poor posture because it’s influenced by the position of the skull as well as the curvature of the spine. 

 When the neck leans forward and the head is in front of the shoulders, the forward weight of the head can place considerable pressure on the vertebrae of the neck. This position, if held repeatedly for long periods of time, has been found to contribute to disc deterioration and other degenerative conditions.

Prolonged malposition of the spine or the head can put a fair amount of strain on neck muscles, causing them to become tight and tense. 
This muscle tension often leads to pain and stiffness. There are also several other muscles that are particularly susceptible to damage caused by strain. 

These muscles are- 

1- scalene muscles
2-suboccipital muscles 
 3-levator scapulae muscles. 

A forward head position also places strain on the upper back and shoulder muscles. Excessive muscle strain is a common culprit for recurring back pain.

The results of poor posture-

If left uncorrected over time, poor posture can lead to numerous long-term problems. Improper posture can begin to irritate the ligaments, joints and soft tissues in and surrounding the neck. 

Irritation could contribute to the development of osteoarthritis, disc herniation or degenerative disc disease. It may also cause decreased range of motion and the development of painful trigger points (areas of muscle that are extremely sensitive to touch).

How physiotherapy can help?

Treatment of neck problems involves identifying and managing the underlying causes present.

 Physiotherapy treatment includes- mobilization and/or manipulation techniques, stretching and strengthening of the neck musculature, soft tissue therapy and trigger pointing, heat therapy, cryotherapy, postural correction, acupuncture, ultrasound and pilates.

 Manual therapy techniques are used to loosen joint and soft tissue restrictions, while posture correction and specific and how to prevent recurrences. 

The majority of neck pain sufferers tend to work at desks; therefore, optimising this environment through ergonomic assessment is often the key to successful management of this problem.

I have mild back pain and hip pain, while walking on step knee pain also coming, kindly suggest the solution to overcome this.

5 Really Simple Ways to Correct Your Sitting Posture

Does your work require you to sit for long hours? Following a bad sitting posture for a long time can cause a lot of health problems like depression, low energy levels, back or neck pain, fatigue, headache etc. But the good news is that you can correct these posture defects very easily by following a few simple tricks throughout the day. Here’s how.

1. Sit up straight
Sitting up straight is easy if you follow these simple rules.
a. Use an ergonomically designed chair made according to your height and weight as it will provide your body with the required support to sit straight. You can buy such a chair online from any leading furniture shopping website.
b. Ensure that your back remains aligned to the back of your chair to prevent slouching or leaning forward.
c. Try to keep your shoulders straight and squared, paired with an upright head and aligned neck, back, and heels, similar to your standing posture.

2. Ensure that your ears are in line with your shoulders
Use this small trick to maintain the correct posture throughout the day. Whenever you lean forward or backward too much, your ears won’t be in line with your shoulders and you will know that it’s a wrong posture.

3. Uncross your legs
The correct sitting posture requires you to keep your feet grounded. Be careful not to cross your legs and leave one of them hanging in front of you. If your feet find it difficult to reach the ground, you can use a footrest or a small stand for placing them.

4. Take the help of a lumbar support pillow
A lumbar support pillow is a cushion that has been designed to support your spine and help you maintain a straight sitting position. Every time you sit on the chair, the pillow ensures that you sit straight. You can roll up a thick towel and use it instead of a lumbar support pillow as well to get the same benefits.

5. Do some desk exercises at regular intervals
Exercising after sitting for long hours can help you to relax by loosening stiff muscles, besides having the added benefit of correcting your posture. Take small exercise breaks and try out the following workouts, while still sitting on your chair-
a. Maintain an upright position and raise your arms above your head, while ensuring that your elbows remain straight. Bend to your right first and then left, while keeping your fingers interlocked.
b. Extend your left leg forward, while remembering to keep your toes pointed towards the front. Change the position of your toes so that they point upward. Follow the same steps for 5 for times and then do the same with your right leg.

Maintaining a correct posture will not only keep you away from the health hazards of a bad posture, but will also enhance your appearance and increase your energy levels.
