The knee is a complex joint with a number of forces acting on it. With the details that you have already given with the question,its is quite likely that you are suffering from the patellofemoral syndrome. This happens due to reduced tone and power of the quadriceps mechanism of muscle. You need the following for adressal of the symptoms 1)physiotherapy for the quadriceps and hamstrings 2)lower back exercises 3)reduction of wieght Thank you and take care

Back Pain - Decoding the Causes Behind it

Back Pain - Decoding the Causes Behind it

Mild to serious pain or uneasiness in the lower back region is known as lumbago or back pain. The pain might be acute (sudden and extreme) or chronic, if it has lasted over three months. People who do a lot of physical exertion are often affected by it. Also back pain occurs as you age

There are a variety of reasons for back pain. Some of them are listed below

  1. Strain: Majority of the cases related to back pain occur due to strain in many parts of the body. These include:
    • Strained ligaments
    • Strained muscles
    • Improper lifting
    • Lifting something too heavy in an incorrect posture
    • A muscle spasm
    • Abrupt or awkward movement
  2. Structural problems: Problems such as bulging discs (a disorder of the rubbery disk within the bones of the spine), arthritis, abnormal curvature of spine (a condition in which the spine curves downward), osteoporosis (bones becoming brittle and weak) and ruptured discs (almost similar to bulging discs).
  3. Cauda equina syndrome (a condition in which the spine nerve roots get compressed)
  4. Infection in spine
  5. Cancer in spine
  6. Sleep disorders
  7. Awkward postures

Symptoms of back pain include:

  1. Stiff back
  2. Loss of weight
  3. Difficulty in urinating
  4. Sciatica, characterized by pain in the hips, legs and thighs. This occurs due to a compression in a slip or intervertebral disc in the back, which leads to a pinched nerve.
  5. Numbness in legs

How to treat it
Treatment for back pain is dependent on the type and severity of pain as well as the patient’s medical history. A large majority of cases of back pain take a recovery time of around six weeks without surgery. Exercises for relieving back pain are common elements of a treatment plan. Typical treatment of back pain involves use of muscle relaxants, pain killers and physiotherapy. Surgery is suggested in severe cases. Some other treatments are discussed below:

  1. Rest: A period of rest and cease of activity would cause the injured tissues to recuperate and relieve back pain. However, extended periods of rest might lead to weakening of muscles and hence, prolong the back pain.
  2. Heat and ice packs: Both heat and ice therapy is used to reduce inflammation and it is utilized according to the patient’s preference.
  3. Medications: A large variety of prescription and over-the-counter medicines are available, such as Acetaminophen and Diclofenac. Some reduce back pain caused by inflammation and others prevent the pain signals from travelling to the brain. It is to be noted that every medication has its own risks and side effects.

Role of Physiotherapy in Treating Back Pain:
In physiotherapy, the general goal of this treatment is to reduce pain in parts of the body; be it in the arms, legs or back. In the age we live in, where most of us are sitting in one place, hunched on our laptops, we are bound to get a back pain. Some pains are temporary and can go away with some sound sleep. The more severe back pains are usually chronic and can hamper your productivity.

The various approaches that are used to cure back pains with physiotherapy are: 

  1. Ionotophoresis
  2. Ice/heat packs
  3. Ultrasound therapies
  4. TENS units

These are called passive approaches as these are being done to the patients. 

The other approaches that are mostly exercise based are mostly done to rehabilitate the spinal cord. This approach is usually a cocktail of the following:

  1. Strengthening Exercises For Back Pain: Certain prescribed exercises such as lumbar stabilization or other exercises should be done for about fifteen to twenty minutes on a regular basis to strengthen your back muscles. These strengthen your core muscles and help in lower back pain as well. These can help in relieving pain if done right. This is why you should get directions from professionals or qualified physical therapists.
  2. Stretching Exercises For Back Pain: It is advised to stretch your hamstring muscles every now and then if you suffer from back pain. It is a very simple form of stretching but you may forget to do it every day. This is why you should schedule your exercises and adhere to the schedule. Incorporate it into your daily routine. There may be other stretches that you can look into or consult your physical therapist to advice you on.
  3. Heat and Cold Therapies: It is one of the most common types of therapy that is used and is mostly used towards the initial period of pain. While some may find heat therapy more useful, others may resort to cold therapies. Sometimes, people use alternate therapy. This therapy is recommended to be performed once in every two hours. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a physiotherapist.

Hello. Your symptoms suggested the dengue fever, which is a self limiting disease and get cured by taking plenty of fluids, NSAIDS and rest. In your case, you had 2 episodes of viral fever, one of could be dengue fever due to which you had all your associated symptoms and also the decreased platelet count. Normally platelet count normalises within a week or so after the dengue fever subsided. Along with the pain in joints and weakness, it takes around 10-15 days to completely recover from this diseases, provided you are taking proper diet and rest.

BACK PAIN: The risk of lower back injury is higher in people who are obese, who have a poor posture or weak back and abdominal muscles. Almost everyone will experience lower back pain once in their life time. Due to a poor diet and lack of exercise this risk can increase by the day. Relieving lower back pain with Yoga AND Exercises are the best option.

As knee pain is very common that you get generally bilaterally. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. 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. Simple Knee Exercies Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping ball underneath the knee and keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone.

All About Lower Back Pain!

Lower back pain? Degeneration of the spine? Lumbar disc problems? Joint pain? Body aches?

For all of the above, the one common solution is popping a calcium or D3 supplement. It’s true though, a deficiency of these vitamins can cause all of the above, but there are many ways of looking at this. You can be popping the best brand of supplements, but remember, it just does not work that way. For calcium to get absorbed into the bones, your D3 levels have to be adequate. If it’s not, your calcium supplement that is being wasted, so are the foods rich in calcium that you are consuming. Furthermore, Vitamin K is such an ignored vitamin, but you should know, Vitamin K is needed for the bones to absorb Calcium. Vitamin K is found in dairy products and green leafy veggies. 

So here’s how it works. For strong and healthy bones, joints and a super strong spine, you need sufficient calcium, D3 and Vitamin K for it to work effectively. I should add in B12 as B12 is necessary for healthy bone marrow, and for the body and spine to grow strong and healthy. Calcium, Vitamin K, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D3A balanced diet should give you all of that.

  • Apart from nutrition, have a look at the points below: 
  • Regular and smart exercise, stretching, warm up and cool downs.
  •  Knowing your tiger muscles and working on flexibility.
  •  DO NOT SIT IN ONE PLACE FOR MORE THAN 30-45 MINUTES.
  • This is too much strain and stress on your lower back/sacrum and it leads to lower back, sciatica and lower body aches and pains.
  • Look for nutrition in fresh and real foods. Supplement only if you have to and if you have a deficiency. 
  • The choice of preventing or healing yourself from pains as such, is all up to you.
