Dear Lybrate user it might be due to long duration poor posture as watching TV in a posture constantly for hours, working on Laptop/ Desktop in a posture for hours which may cause sustained contractions of muscle. Break the cycle in every half an hour change the posture. Do neck exercises warm foamentation.

It seems by the history that your husband had a fracture upper end tibia normally after 4 months the bone does unite but sometimes (depending on the fracture configuration) it may even take 6 months it is advisable to get a fresh x ray done and that may be compared to the one done immediate post surgery to see the progress.

Hi, since your taking us for 6 session and there is no relief I would like to tell u dat d origin of the pain can b something else. In any orthopedic conditions der can be problem in one part of your body and referred pain to some other part of your body which is very common in heel and wrist. I wud like to tell u to visit any McKenzie therapist in your area to find d root cause of the pain. Once d root cause is found out your prob can get solved completely.

Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.

Water may not be the only cause for skin tanning. Try best to avoid sunexposure during peak sun. Limit the use of sun exposure as far as possible or use sunscreen. Get your hormonal profile evaluated,

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Lower back pain may not be linked to the heart problems. You can get x ray ls spine (ap & lateral - flexion & extension) and send it across to me. Also can you tell me if it is associated with any leg pain or any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias (electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. Please also tell me about any associated symptoms like fever, weight loss etc. What medications he generally takes and what has been his treatment history till now for existing problem. Please also get esr, crp and serum vitamin d and b12 levels done from a good lab and send reports across to me. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or 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. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

I was a sports man I had a operation in my leg my ligament has broken now can I start playing again?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Pune
Hello lybrate-user, according to your history and as a sportsperson that operation would most likely be an acl reconstruction. Playing again will depend upon your rehabilitation protocol and the strength of the fixation of ligament which your operating surgeon will most likely know the best. Generally after around one month of physiotherapy low impact activities and around six months for starting of high impact activity like running, sprinting, playing.

I am 40 years and having ankylosis 15-20 years back. Taking no medicine & no problem in day to day activities. I have a restricted movement in neck & spine. Can some massage treatment (with some oils) can help to recover movement (spine bones that are fused)

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Bundi
Fused bones can't be separated but some oils give relaxation and strengthen muscles. Mahavishgarbh and mahanarayan oils of ayurveda are excellent. Do hot fomentation on neck area and then do gentle massage all around rigid area. Again may do fomentation if possible. But one major thing which is very important to adopt. Do yoga postures for neck and vertebral columns at least. Learn these. Slowly flexibility will come. Keep doing oils. Smell may be not so good but oils are very effective. Otherwise rumalaya liniment may be used. But I still prefer former ones. Orally: shigru capsules, rumalaya forte 1 bid each may be taken for four weeks. Report for further directions. For gut cleansing take 1/2 tsp of taruni kusumakar churna every night with warm water. It is essential for expelling aam in intestines.

It happens because of the calcium deficiency. Start taking its supplements like bananas, milk, sitaphal etc. And take Calc Phos 6X three times in a day for 1 month. It will be alright. Take care. :) And if you have any other query. Please ask.
