After prolonged sitting, I can not put full load on my left leg, as my hip joint does not allow and make some pain. It occurs only for 1-2 step, after that I have normal walking. Pain in hip joint in not permanent but it happens when in sit. Is it due to hip joint or my problem of cervical spine compression. History-I had cervical decompression, so operate for spine is done year ago (laminectomy).

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Since inflammation is a common component of spinal stenosis, anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen .Massage for spinal stenosis can be an effective part of a treatment plan, because it can both temporarily relieve symptoms and also provide an overall wellness boost. Spinal stenosis is narrowing of the spinal canal usually related to age-related conditions like arthritis, and can lead to chronic, debilitating pain. AND DO SOME PHYSICALTHERAPY .I may also recommend a physical therapist to learn exercises that can then be incorporated into a daily exercise routine. Don't exercise through pain and other symptoms.

It's frozen shoulder most likely. You need to strengthen your shoulder muscles. Do stretching exercises for shoulder.

Her knee ligament must be injured. Hot fermentation is required. Ift & ultrasound. Knee isometrics- lie down & keep a towel roll under the knee joint ask her to press it downwards & hold upto count of 5, 10 repetitions. Perform straight leg raising & leg sliding exercises- 10 repetitions each. Exercises should be done 2 times a day this should be followed by strengthening program as well.

The pain is most likely muscle sprain and does not show up on X rays. Try doing stretches for hamstrings and Quadriceps and gentle strengthening exercises. Also cold packs can help reduce pain. If it still persists go for Physiotherapy sessions. Good luck.

Torn Meniscus - Symptoms And Treatment!

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Chennai
Torn Meniscus - Symptoms And Treatment!

Your knee is guarded and cushioned by a cartilage known as meniscus. A meniscus tear, therefore, is an extremely painful and discomforting situation. It occurs very frequently and has emerged as one of the most commonly occurring cartilage injuries. What makes a meniscus tear an extremely common phenomenon is the way it can tear that is all it takes is a twist of the knee for it to happen.

People involved in sports mostly face the brunt of this form of injury. The risk of getting meniscus torn increases with age and tends to occur at the slightest change of direction of movement. 

Symptoms 
Some of the symptoms of a torn meniscus are:

  1. Pain and inflammation: It goes without saying that an internal injury of the cartilage or tearing away of it would inevitably result in extreme pain and inflammation near the knee.
  2. Immobility: The extreme pain and inflammation, which follows will inevitably make it difficult to move. Since the pain occurs in the joint, you will have difficulty in walking and any forceful movement will only aggravate the pain.
  3. Locking of the knee: Locking of the knee refers to a situation when you are unable to move your knee. This occurs most commonly after you have your meniscus torn.

Treatment
Notwithstanding its frequency of occurrence, there are several ways, by which you can treat a torn meniscus. Some of the ways are:

  1. Apply ice: In order to get some relief, applying ice is a suitable option. If you apply ice every day for some time, it wonders in reducing swelling and the consequent pain.
  2. Use a bandage: In order to control the swelling, it is important that you cover your knee with an elastic bandage.
  3. Change the posture: It is important that you keep the affected knee in an elevated plane, in order to ensure an efficient blood supply and a consequent relief from pain.

Some Medical Treatments
There are many things to consider when deciding how to treat your torn meniscus, including the extent and location of the tear, your pain level, your age and activity level, your doctor's preference, and when the injury occurred. Your medical treatment choices are:

  1. Nonsurgical treatment with compression, elevation, and physical therapy. This may include wearing a temporary shoulder brace.
  2. Surgical repair to sew the tear together.
  3. Partial meniscectomy, which is surgery to remove the torn section.
  4. Total meniscectomy, which is surgery to remove the entire meniscus. This is generally avoided, because this option increases the risk for osteoarthritis in the shoulder.
  5. Whenever possible, meniscus surgery is done using arthroscopy, rather than through a large cut in the shoulder.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. For your back pain: if you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - 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 can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. For legs pain: actually pain at calf/leg region can be due to many reasons, commonly it is muscular in nature but it can also be due to tendons, nerves, blood vessels etc. My advise to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - ice packs application intensively with elevation of your limbs at night - take a short course of anti-inflammatory medication as per your body's suitability - stop your physical activity till pain completely subsides - intensive physical therapy, training and proper muscle conditioning once pain has subsided - slow resumption of physical activities with proper pre activity warm up and stretching of muscles and short increments in duration of physical activity each day as per pain tolerance. - we will get some blood tests for you - serum vitamin d and serum potassium levels, esr and crp once you have all these reports then you can contact me as I can advise you for proper supplementation do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Please help.

For a successful marriage there should be good understanding between couple...so you should talk to him regarding this problem...if he is understanding he will understand your problem and can help you....but sex is also a necessary part in life...so you should get the time for it and try to find ways to enjoy sex...
