Try this for joint pains try this. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

I am male 22. I am suffering from back pain from many days, the pain is allover the back middle, upper,shoulder blades. I also have pain on the lower part of the right rib but sometimes pain spreads to lower part of the left rib as well. I also feel that something is stuck in my throat. Few months back I was diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease. Sometimes I also feel chest pain, heartburn and acid via food pipe. Whenever I rest laying straight the pain increases and lastly the pain gets worse after eating something. I was wondering if all these symptoms including back and rib pain are because of GERD .please help.

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.

MPTh/MPT, MSC CVR, MANUAL THERAPIST
Physiotherapist,
7 Step Rehabilitation
We have created a revolutionary 7 Step Program to eliminate your back pain and keep it away. Through this program you can recover fully and keep future pain at bay.

To fully recover from an injury or an episode of physical pain everybody needs to move through 7 stages of recovery. Future injury, greater health costs and ongoing frustration are assured if shortcuts are taken or treatment is prematurely ceased.

Every individual will commence at different stages of this process. Some will move more quickly through some stages whilst others move more slowly. Everybody is different.

Step 1 - Tissue Normalization
First we bring the injury under control, so your tissues can begin to heal. This helps the injured part to function smoothly with the rest of the body.
Step 2 - Muscle Activation
An injury is extremely painful, and makes movement difficult. By activating injured muscles early, you'll recover sooner.
Step 3 - Static Control
Develop sufficient strength and control of your injured body part to hold a neutral position whilst other parts are moving.
Step 4 - Dynamic Control
Develop the strength to control the injured body part during movement. By increasing endurance, you'll be able to maintain dynamic control.
Step 5 - Functional Rehabilitation
You're well on your way to full recovery. This stage customises your rehabilitation to your specific needs.
Step 6 - Functional Fitness
This stage is ensures you have the necessary physical fitness, power, endurance, body awareness, strength and flexibility to perform physically.
Step 7 - Maintenance Program
To make sure you don't experience a recurring injury, we tailor a program to keep you fighting fit, monitor your progress and continue to supervise rehabilitation.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I want to know your detailed clinical history as to the onset of this pain/heaviness in your knees. Is there any associated swelling in your affected knee? what relevant investigations have you done till now and what form of treatment have you received for it? the sensation could just be due to tendinitis, or some structural issue inside the knee. Please also mention your co-morbid conditions and drug allergy. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I am 18 year & have back pain.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist,
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned backache as only problem. Since you are very young, if you have only localized backache with no other associated symptoms like radiating leg pain, numbness, paresthesias etc, and no systemic symptoms like fever, loss of appetite, loss of weight etc, my advice to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or even tab paracetamol which suits you - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application like dynapar qps spray can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc if you do not feel better with these measures in 2-3 weeks time, we will need to evaluate you further in form of dynamic x rays to look for any instability as a cause for pain and some blood investigations to rule out any deficiencies etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

People working in software companies usually work in ACs. They have vitamin D deficiency and calcium deficiency. Due to continuous sitting type of work, they have back muscle weakness. You would need modification of chair if its uncomfortable. Back muscle strengthening exercises. Some medicines You will do fine.

Persistent Stiffness in Joints - Can it be a Sign of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Persistent Stiffness in Joints - Can it be a Sign of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune chronic disorder that might cause abnormal swelling in the joints when the joint tissues are attacked by the human immune system. The more frequently used body joints, such as the knees, fingers, shoulders, wrists, elbows and hips commonly get affected by the disease. Rheumatoid arthritis can also occur in the ligaments or tendons and might affect areas such as the kidney, bone marrow, eyes, lungs, and heart.

If rheumatoid arthritis is not diagnosed on time, it might lead to future complications, such as blood cancer in the lymph regions, osteoporosis (a medical condition resulting in the weakness of the bones), infections, stiffening of the arteries and dry mouth.

What exactly causes the disease is not known, but a significant damage to the immune system might cause the inflammation of the joints, resulting in this condition. Obesity, a family history of this condition and other lifestyle habits such as smoking tobacco put one at higher risks of this disorder.

The symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis might vary among people. The most common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis are;
1. Severe pain in the morning
2. Episodes of mild fever with severe pain
3. Redness and inflammation of the joints which might cause intense pain
4. Stiffness in the joints
5. The pain might increase in low-temperature conditions
6. Acute lethargy and weight loss

Treatments
The treatment of rheumatoid arthritis includes a prescribed dosage (depending on the intensity of the condition) of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, anti-rheumatoid drugs such as methotrexate and steroid drugs such as prednisone to reduce the swelling and the subsequent pain. Performing regular exercises in order to retain the flexibility of the joints with appropriate consultation from the physiotherapist might cure rheumatoid arthritis.
