Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are many causes of swelling in the legs. Most common reason is postural and many patients develop it when they stand for a long time, but as soon as they elevate their leg up, the swelling subsides. It can happen after any injury which is a priority to diagnose and treat accordingly. Also there could be infection or inflammation which can lead to swelling. Sometimes heavy physical activity may also lead to swelling in your calf muscles. But we have to look at medical causes as well, chronic cardiac conditions can lead to swelling, any pathology which leads to low proteins in the body like deranged lft, kft etc can also lead to swelling. Hypothyroidism can also lead to generalized swelling like appearance in the body. So for accurate diagnosis we need to clinically evaluate and get appropriate tests: cbc, esr, crp, lft, kft, serum electrolytes and thyroid profile. Please get back to me should you need more information or with test results. 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. Thanks & regards

What is the Effect of Poor Posture? How can Physiotherapy help?

What is the Effect of Poor Posture? How can Physiotherapy help?

The spine is a foundational structure of the human body that supports both the head and the neck. The neck is especially vulnerable to the damaging effects of poor posture because it’s influenced by the position of the skull as well as the curvature of the spine. 

 When the neck leans forward and the head is in front of the shoulders, the forward weight of the head can place considerable pressure on the vertebrae of the neck. This position, if held repeatedly for long periods of time, has been found to contribute to disc deterioration and other degenerative conditions.

Prolonged malposition of the spine or the head can put a fair amount of strain on neck muscles, causing them to become tight and tense. 
This muscle tension often leads to pain and stiffness. There are also several other muscles that are particularly susceptible to damage caused by strain. 

These muscles are- 

1- scalene muscles
2-suboccipital muscles 
 3-levator scapulae muscles. 

A forward head position also places strain on the upper back and shoulder muscles. Excessive muscle strain is a common culprit for recurring back pain.

The results of poor posture-

If left uncorrected over time, poor posture can lead to numerous long-term problems. Improper posture can begin to irritate the ligaments, joints and soft tissues in and surrounding the neck. 

Irritation could contribute to the development of osteoarthritis, disc herniation or degenerative disc disease. It may also cause decreased range of motion and the development of painful trigger points (areas of muscle that are extremely sensitive to touch).

How physiotherapy can help?

Treatment of neck problems involves identifying and managing the underlying causes present.

 Physiotherapy treatment includes- mobilization and/or manipulation techniques, stretching and strengthening of the neck musculature, soft tissue therapy and trigger pointing, heat therapy, cryotherapy, postural correction, acupuncture, ultrasound and pilates.

 Manual therapy techniques are used to loosen joint and soft tissue restrictions, while posture correction and specific and how to prevent recurrences. 

The majority of neck pain sufferers tend to work at desks; therefore, optimising this environment through ergonomic assessment is often the key to successful management of this problem.

Knee Arthritis & High Tibial Osteotomy - An Overview!

MBBS, Diploma In Orthopaedics (D. Ortho), DNB - Orthopedics, Mch

Knee Arthritis & High Tibial Osteotomy - An Overview!

What is arthritis of the knee?

The knee acts as hinge joint and allows flexion (bending) and extension (straightening). The knee is formed by the tibiofemoral joints, where end of the femur (thigh bone) glides over the top of the tibia (shin bone) and the patellofemoral joint where the kneecap glides over the end part of the femur. The gliding surfaces of the knee are covered with articular cartilage which helps the joint to glide smoothly. Over time the articular cartilage can become damaged or 'worn away' and this is known as osteoarthritis.

What is medial compartment arthritis?

Most people with knee arthritis have predominantly pain in the inner aspect of the knee, which is due to medial compartment arthritis. Patients who are born with varus knees (bow legs) are more likely to get medial compartment osteoarthritis. This is because the weight of their body mainly passes through the medial compartment of the knee rather than spreading the load evenly between the whole gliding surface of the knee. 

How do you diagnose medial compartment arthritis?

ClinicaFeatures, examination findings and standing X-rays of the knee joint and the patello-femoral joint are needed to diagnose medial compartment arthritis. The X-ray will often show narrowing of the joint space in the medial compartment of the knee which suggest that a patient has medial compartment osteoarthritis. Long Leg standing X-ray of the whole of both of both legs from the hip joints to the ankle joints ( Fig 2), allows us to carefully examine the overall alignment of your legs. They help to calculate the weight bearing axis of your leg and find out where most of the force is passing through your knee joint. MRI would be done too, to assess degree of cartilage damage. It is imperative to know status of other structures in the knee like meniscus and ligaments.

Non-operative treatment

Some patients are advised for a type of knee brace known as a medial offloading brace to trial. To a certain extent this mimics the result of osteotomy surgery by pushing the leg into a more normal alignment and taking the pressure of the damaged medial compartment. This is usually only a temporary solution whilst waiting for surgery. Patients who are overweight often find their knee pain is significantly improved when they lose weight. Simple analgesia such as paracetamol together with etodolac can help with pain and sleep disturbance form the pain.

Who requires surgery?

People suffering from growing cartilage lesions resulting in pain and activity restriction with proved mechanical axis deviation as the cause, would benefit from surgery. Age and extent of cartilage wear determine the nature of surgery. Younger individuals with smaller lesions are good candidates for a joint preservation surgery in the form of a High Tibial Osteotomy. With advancing age and extent of disease, Arthroplasty would be a
more beneficial option.

My right hand between palm and elbow has started paining since last 4 days. Pain is mainly in the inner muscles/veins. Apart from paining on itself, it pains on pressing with a humble pressure though there's no hurt on it neither a sprain. At nights, pain becomes worse and now it has covered daytime too. It soothes when the middle finger is stretched and hand is given a hot compress. Today the pain seems spreading along the right leg. I have not taken any medication for it but I am taking pills for thyroid and polycystic ovaries. Please suggest.

Pain in the arm can result from a number of factors. Abnormalities or injury of the skin, nerves, bones, joints, blood vessels, and soft tissues of the arm can all result in pain. Arm pain may be the result of referred pain from another part of the body. Please go to a physiotherapist to assess and treat the underlying condition. If pain is caused by an activity, modify or stop the activity. Rest the arm and resume activity gradually. Monitor the response to the activity. Pain experienced in the right arm is usually not serious, but when it is coupled with other symptoms like pain in the leg or tightness of the chest, it may be more serious. Try some home remedies: ice will reduce pain and swelling. Apply ice or cold packs immediately to prevent or minimize swelling. Apply the ice or cold pack for 10 to 20 minutes, 3 or more times a day. Elevate the painful area on pillows while applying ice and anytime you are sitting or lying down. Try to keep the area at or above the level of your heart to help minimize swelling. Apply heat and begin gentle exercise with the aid of moist heat to help restore and maintain flexibility. Some experts recommend alternating between heat and cold treatments. Gently massage or rub the area to relieve pain and encourage blood flow. Do not massage the area if it causes pain. Do not smoke or use other tobacco products. Smoking slows healing because it decreases blood supply and delays tissue repair. Best wishes.
