How to manage joint pains at home? What are the medicines used to get relief from joint pains.
Joint pains can be due to different reasons. Different medicines for different types of joint pain. For symptomatic relief I can advice you hot water fomentation for pains more than 6 months and icing for pains not more than 1month. Adequate rest to swollen joints and gentle to submaximal exercises to each joint if pain is tolerable for short time.

Hello , in back pain, it is very important to strengthen the back and core muscles. Apart from that do proper warm up before exercise and cool down after exercise. Avoid activities which involve lifting heavy weights or twisting of spine. Do exercise in supervision of skilled professional. Take care! wish you healthy life!

Knee advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- 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. 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. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

I am a 18 years male. I had backache so I consulted a physiotherapist and did an X ray. My spine turned out to be a little bent and he found that bent to be the reason of pain. He advised exercises under his supervision for 15-20 days. I am a bit confused now, should I consult someone from the orthopedic department? Or I shall go on with the physiotherapist? I am afraid, If I consulted a orthopaedic he will ask for a surgery or something. Please suggest what shall I do.

Not Stretching Properly? It May Cause You Muscle Strain!

Not Stretching Properly? It May Cause You Muscle Strain!

Muscle strain or muscle pull is a condition, which is characterized by damage to the muscles or its adjoining tendons. Undue pressure can be exerted on the muscle when you are carrying out routine activities such as sudden lifting of heavy things or playing contact sports. The damage to the muscle is usually in the form of partial or complete tearing of the tendons and fibres attached to the muscles. The small blood vessels in the muscles can also be damaged by the tearing of the muscles, leading to local bleeding and bruising.

The symptoms of muscle pain are:

  1. You will experience pain even while resting
  2. There will be bruising, swelling and redness around the affected area
  3. You will experience weakness of the muscles and tendons
  4. The movement and mobility of the muscle will be impaired
  5. You will experience pain when you use the affected muscles

The causes of a muscle strain are:

  1. Playing contact sports can lead to injuries
  2. Lifting heavy things
  3. Exercising without a proper warm up routine
  4. Lifting extremely heavy weights during exercise without proper acclimatization
  5. Sleeping on one side only for a long period of time
  6. Not stretching properly
  7. Falling from a height

The treatments for muscle strains are:

  1. Pain medications: You can opt for pain relieving medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications to help combat the associated pain of a muscle strain.
  2. Rice: Rice stands for rest, ice, compression and elevation. This treatment is usually the first step after suffering a strain, before opting for medications. This treatment prevents further aggravation of the problem.
  3. Compress: You can alternate between hot and cold compress to reduce the swelling and pain.
  4. Stretches: Once the affected area has healed, it is important for you stretch the muscles to improve their mobility and strength. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.
