Try few things for your back pain: - Apply Ice and Heat Heating pads and cold packs can comfort tender trunks. Most doctors recommend using ice for the first 48 hours after an injury -- particularly if there is swelling — and then switching to heat. You can use whichever you find comforting as long as your skin is protected. - Limit Bed Rest Studies show that people with short-term low-back pain who rest feel more pain and have a harder time with daily tasks than those who stay active. -Keep Exercising Activity is often the best medicine for back pain. Simple exercises like walking can be very helpful. But remember to move in moderation, Stay away from strenuous activities like gardening and avoid whatever motion caused the pain in the first place. -Maintain Good Posture most people have poor posture when going about their daily activities, putting unnecessary strain on their backs. -Strengthen Your Core Most people with chronic back pain would benefit from stronger abdominal muscles. If the abdominals are weak, other areas must pick up the slack. When we strengthen the abdominals, it often reduces the strain on the lower back. - Improve Flexibility Too much tension and tightness can cause back pain. By increasing flexibility you need to put an equal load throughout the body from the feet all the way up to the head. -Sleep the Right Way The amount of rest you get is important, and so is the position you get it in. Sleeping in a bad position or on a mattress without support can cause back pain. Back sleepers should put pillows under their knees. Side sleepers should place pillows between their knees to keep their spine in a neutral position. Stomach sleeping causes the neck and head to twist and can put undue stress on the back. -Use Relaxation Techniques Research shows that practices such as meditation, deep breathing and yoga, which help put the mind at rest, can do wonders for the back. -See a Specialist Developing an individualized exercise plan is essential to managing chronic back pain. Some patients need more core strengthening while others benefit mainly from stretching and improving flexibility. Please consult a Orthopedic Physiotherapist for the right exercise plan. Best wishes.

Physiotherapy Balancing and Coordination Exercises (In Standing And Walking)

Physiotherapy Balancing and Coordination Exercises (In Standing And Walking)

STANDING ACTIVITIES:

Once the patient has a good head and trunk control one needs to work on thecontrol of the lower limb in order to make the patient stand successfully.Activities like unilateral bridging, crawling, kneeling and half kneeling helps in developing good pelvic and leg control. 

These exercises are progressed from supported position to unsupported position.Sitting to standing can be practiced by making the patient sit on a chair or cot such that the feet are in proper contact with the ground. The patient is advised to lean slightly such that the centre of gravity is brought between the feet, the therapist should stabilize the knee and support the pelvis there after the patient is encouraged to assume standing posture. 

Repetition of this task is essential till the patient masters the activity. The patient may be also taught standing by pulling on to the wall bar or parallel bar but for this the upper limb should be strong, nevertheless in the initial stages the support and assurance by the therapist is very important. Once the patient learns to stand,balance and weight transfer is taught. 

Posturography machine provides the important feedback to the patient which helps in improving the standing balance and control. Approximation given to the pelvis or to the shoulder also helps infacilitating stability in standing. In case the patient has tremor then ankle weights, a weighted belt or theraband can help in reducing them. 

Once the patient is stable in double support phase, weight transfer is practiced. Lastly in standing the patient is made to make a step with either limb in forward,backward and outward direction as a prerequisite to ambulation. 

GAIT TRAINING 

Gait training may be initially given in a parallel bar with foot marks. Footmarks are essential to reduce the tendency of the patient to walk with wide base of support. He needs constant verbal feedback regarding the step length,body rotation, accessory movements and trunk positions if the functional activity does not present itself as a whole procedural program. 

When the patient has to be progressed to walk outside a parallel bar, the therapist decides whether thepatient needs to be given an assistive device, which is based upon the balance of the patient. Although walking aids do provide support to the patient, they also possess a problem because the patient will now need to control the position and movement of the device as well as themselves.Walker or cane may be used depending upon the patient’s comfort.

Various coordination tests were used as assessment tools for incoordination are also used as exercises to improve incoordination. The patient is asked to repeat each activity about 10 to 12 times during each session. 

The patient maybe given these exercises as even home exercise program. At home patient can have multiple sessions with good rest in between them to avoid fatigue.Proximal fixation can be improved by using PNF techniques like rhythmic stabilization and approximation.

I'm 19 years old and I feel pain around my navel and I'm experiencing a pain through my spinal cord for the past 2 days please help me.

Kantiji, Thanks for the query. On treatment with thyroxine, one should be able to maintain TSH around 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in control. Therefore, your present dose appears to be inadequate. Better to increase by 12.5 mcg, then check TSH after 6 weeks, if level still more than recommended, then the dose may have to be increased again. Thanks.

Having muscle pain since the last day for playing football after while what should I do?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It is only a one day story and it can happen when your muscles are over exerted to which they are not accustomed. You can do ice packs and take gentle anti inflammatory medication which suits you and you should be ok in next 4-5 days. Also do not indulge in any sporting activities for now till you are pain free and try to resume with gradual pre activity warm up and with short increments in physical activity each day. 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.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that can affect more than just your joints. In some people, the condition also can damage a wide variety of body systems, including the skin, eyes, lungs, heart and blood vessels. An autoimmune disorder, rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body's tissues. Unlike the wear-and-tear damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity. The inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis is what can damage other parts of the body as well. While new types of medications have improved treatment options dramatically, severe rheumatoid arthritis can still cause physical disabilities. Homeopathy is very helpful .in homeopathy bryonia, belladona,kalmia is very helpful to you, if you want better treatment and better case managment than you can take online consultation.
