If you have problem in your legs then it might be due to ligament laxity where your legs would become very weak due to the old ligament injury and that should be treated immediately. It leads to leads to buckling of the knee while climbing stairs it is very risky and dangerous and it is due to ligament laxity or due to any untreated old injury of the knee ligaments.

No there is no harm. If your says for surgery you may go for surgery. But before going for surgery you may try homeo treatment but with full details surgery is the last option.

Persistent low back pain: 6 questions to ask yourself

BPT, MPT, Certified Mulligan Practitioner
Physiotherapist, Bardhaman
Persistent low back pain: 6 questions to ask yourself

80% of all people suffer from (lbp) low back pain at least once in their lifetime. So, if you are having one, no big deal. But if your back pain continues beyond reasonable time (say, about 6 weeks) or recurs frequently, then something must be wrong with your health habits. To find out what, you should ask yourself these questions:

#1 am I sitting the wrong way?

A slouch sitting on a badly designed chair for a long time produces considerable amount of lbp. Sit straight with butts deep inside the seat so that your thighs are completely supported. Your feet should be supported too, instead of hanging in the thin air, so adjust the chair height or get a foot rest. It is best to add a cushion in the lumbar area (the hollow of your back opposite the umbilicus). A rolled up towel works fine, but if you are the spending type then you can order the mckenzie roll.

Invest in a good ergonomic chair if you are on a sitting job, mind you, the costliest is not the best, so look for user review or expert opinion while choosing one.

#2 am I bending too much?

Frequency of flexion (forward bending) is a known risk for lbp. In fact a study has shown if you control forward bending early in the morning there is significant improvement in the low back pain. So, next time use a broom with a log handle, tie the shoelace with the foot over the stool, bend the knees instead of stooping when you pick up something from the floor. In short, stop forward bending as much as possible.

#3 are my daily activities taking a toll on my back?

Are sundays/leisure days better than a working day? if yes, then most probably your adls (activities of daily living) are over stressing your back. Remember, there are two ways to perform any work, the wrong way: when you hurt your back and the right way, when you protect it. If your job involves sitting for prolonged time without much movement, lifting and carrying heavy objects, riding two wheelers or operating machines that vibrates a lot then you should take frequent rest in between and exercise.

#4 am I performing the correct exercise?

First, are you exercising at all? studies have shown sedentary lifestyle is a known risk factor for back pain. So, if you do any physical activity you are positioned better prevent lbp.

If you are already suffering from lbp then depending on your type of pain you need to perform specific exercises. There is no single exercise prescription that cures them all, so consult a good physio who will show you the correct set of exercises. While in most cases a properly designed exercise regime is sufficient to get rid of low back pain, a wrong set of exercise may have a disastrous effect on the back pain.

#5 am I suffering from an underlying disease?

While most back pains are mechanical in nature (overload related) a variety of systemic diseases are associated with low back pain, ranging from forms of arthritis to cancer to kidney stone. The hallmark of a mechanical back pain is it changes intensity with body posture. Still, when in doubt, always seek professional help.

#6 am I suffering from stress?

Stress can both produce back pain and delay the recovery. Negative emotions like depression, anxiety, anger, tension etc have far reaching implications on health issues like back pain than we commonly realize. If this is the case for you then don't ignore it. There are a number of ways to de-stress, you need to choose what suits you.

Few things related to headache so that we can plan the treatment accordingly - if pain is associated with blurred or decreased vision than check your eye sight for refractive error - if the pain is associated with cold and fever than we have to rule out sinusitis as the cause and if the pain is pulsatile in nature and with a throbbing pain usually with an aura than we have to rule out migrane as the cause - if the pain is associated with neck problems than we have to rule out cervical spondylosis as the cause - if the pain is associated with either low or high bp or due to hyperacidity than we have to treat the cause after examination.

Do have clinical examination by your neuro musculosketol physio or vascular specialist or diabetologist to rule out whether its of nerve impingement or damage or vascular lesions or if it is of diabetic neuro pathy normally avoid stress as it is major indirect cause of today's ailments by relaxation techniques like breathing exercises meditation listening soothing music outdoor shopping etc

My mother is 50 yrs old. One or two days in a week, just after cooking she is feeling very tired and her head feels exactly same as we feel during a mild earthquake. She also had spondylitis problem and does some exercise everyday for that problem, as suggested by doctor. We have consulted many doctors. Blood tests, x-ray and ECG were done which looks to be ok. She is also taking some medicines for acidity problem and vitamin tablets as she becomes very sick now-a-days. After consulting so many doctors of different expertise, we are really confused. I will be grateful if you kindly suggest what might be the problem with my mother.
