Normally there is gap between two vertebrae ie spine bones. So its inappropriate terminology. You should visit an orthopaedic surgeon.

Pain in my right knee when I walk more. Pls tell me what is the reason behind this?

Pain in my right knee when I walk more.
Pls tell me what is the reason behind this?
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).

How to prevent quick ejaculation during intercourse and how to get rid of stiffness in the knee joints?

How to prevent quick ejaculation during intercourse and how to get rid of stiffness in the knee joints?
Stop the stimulation for 30-60 seconds and start again once you feel that you have regained control. Repeat this process 4-5 times, stopping and “resting” every time you feel that you are about to have an orgasm. Finally, let the ejaculation occur, so that you can identify the “point of no-return”.

OSTEOARTHRITIS

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
OSTEOARTHRITIS
Degenerative joint disease, osteoarthrosis, and osteoarthritis are all the same disease characterized by the joint cartilage breakdown causing painful and stiff joints. Literally translated as inflammation of the joints, osteoarthritis is part of the family of diseases known as arthritis which refers to 100 various diseases. Osteoarthritis commonly causes disability. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, but there are effective treatment options.
Osteoarthritis often only strikes one joint, usually a joint that bear a lot of stress such as the hip, back, knee, or hand joints. Symptoms include pain, painful use of the joint, painful periods after the joint has been used, joint discomfort during significant changes in the weather, swelling in a joint, stiffness of the joint, bony lumps in the hand and finger joints, a decreased amount of joint flexibility.

The cartilage between joints is supposed to be smooth to allow joints to easily slide over it while in use. Over time some people lose this smoothness of the cartilage and there is a rough, sandpaper like appearance to the joints. This means that the joints can no longer slide gently over the cartilage. This is osteoarthritis. The cause is time and age and the eventual wearing down of the joint’s cartilage, but it is not necessarily easy to indicate who will suffer from osteoarthritis and who won’t. Joint stress, injury, and heredity tend to play a role in these factors, but it is not an absolute.

CLINICAL MANIFESTATIONS are -

Joint Pain aggravated by use and relieved by rest.
Night Pains.Stiffness of the Joints.Swelling of the Joints.
Tenderness of the Joints.Limited Movement of the Joints.
Wasting of Muscles around the Joints.
Movements of the Joints make crepitus.
There is Deformity of the Joint.
Risk factors for osteoarthritis include gender, as osteoarthritis strikes more females than male, age, as osteoarthritis is typically found in people over 45 years of age, joint injuries especially those related to sports, obesity, diseases that cause malformations or disfigurement of the bone structure, weakened quadriceps, and other forms of arthritis

Factors Leading To Arthritis are -

Overweight.
Lack of Exercises.Excessively rich diet and fatty substance and overeating.
Modern Life (Sitting in chairs and working too long).
Mental Factors like TENSIONS, SUPRESSIONS OF EMOTIONS, FEAR, HYPERSENSITIVITY.
Physical examinations can often determine the presence of osteoarthritis. In some cases a physician may take a list of physical complaints, a physical examination, blood tests which rule out other varieties of arthritis, X-rays, MRI, and other various imaging techniques to determine the presence of osteoarthritis. Imaging can reveal the cartilage loss and the development of boney growth which is indicative of osteoarthritis.
The greatest complication related to osteoarthritis is pain, as often the pain can be so detrimental that it is crippling and prevents mobility or the use of the joint. It is not uncommon for a patient to experience acute and intense pain for the first year of living with osteoarthritis only to have it diminish to reasonable levels. Pain medications are often more intense for the first year of living with osteoarthritis but can cause complications of their own if used for too long. Thus, pain medications are only used when absolutely necessary.

There is no actual cure for osteoarthritis, although there are treatment options available. When the pain is intolerable for more than a year, most physicians recommend replacing the joint. Joint replacement technology has improved dramatically over the past few years and most joint replacements have been done with wonderful success. Other pain relieving options include topical pain relievers, some of which are prescription strength, NSAIDS to help with both the pain and the inflammation, as well as other over the counter pain relievers. Corticosteroid injections can often relieve joint pain for a reasonable amount of time, but are not typically used as a regular therapy for more than a period of one or two years. Low dose antidepressants have been proven to relieve pain without the side effects of narcotics. These medications are prescribed in doses low enough to prevent the effects of antidepressants while still providing pain relief. There are some anticonvulsants that will provide the same type of pain relief even if the patient has no signs of depression or seizures.

YOGIC APPROACH for ARTHRITIS -

Asana – VAJARASANA, PADMASANA, AKARNA DHANURASANA, MARJARASANA.
Hatha Yoga Kriyas – PURNA and LAGHU SHANKHAPRAKSHALANA, KUNJAL and NETI.
Pranayamas – NADISHODHAN and BHASTRIKA.
Meditation – Releases mental and emotional tensions, reduces arthritic rigidity.
DIET –

Cooked light grains and cereals.
Boiled pulses.Boiled and baked vegetables.
Green Salads (TOMATO, BEET, CARROTS).
Fresh Fruits.Reduce intake milk and dairy products
