Superior migration of large right para-central diskal herniation atL5-S1 level reaching uptill mid level of L5 and causing extradural thecal and right radicular indentation.

Activation of core muscles will help to restore movements. Start with static back exercises, once the spasm is less, you will be able to move around and then gradual exercises with help you to strengthen your back.

Ankle stretch calves get a custom made insole. Hams stretching. Sports taping. Hot fomentation. Knee 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. 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.

Knee Injury Prevention Tips

Knee Injury Prevention Tips

Knee injury prevention tips:

4 tips to minimize long-term knee damage and heal faster

- Correct muscular imbalance: Most overuse injuries of the knee develop gradually due to muscular imbalances and poor movement patterns. Your physiotherapist can show you corrective exercises to address the muscle imbalances and improve the way you move.
- Strengthen your hips: Strengthening your hips and improving core muscle strength will reduce the risk of adversely loading your knee joints. Stretching the muscles that attach into your hips/knees/ankles will also minimize compression of these joints. Your physiotherapist can show you how.
- Protect your joints: If you have any degenerative changes in your knees (e. G. Osteoarthritis) your physiotherapist can show you how to protect your joints during activities of daily living, prescribe exercises to improve the strength of supporting muscles, advise you on safe forms of exercise, and assess your footwear.
- Correct movement patterns: Poor movement patterns during sports (e. G. Incorrect landings during jumping) greatly increase the risk of traumatic knee injuries. Your physiotherapist can teach you how to move properly and minimize this risk.

Requires detailed examination and investigation. Preliminary investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d urine r/e x-ray of the affected part. Anyway it may be tried sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back, knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure that patient is not allergic to any of the medicines that he/she is going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.

I have a joint pain often. My calcium count is low. What could be the relation between the two.

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
* calcium acts as a natural tranquillizer in our bodies. It has a calming effect on our nerves which in turn has a calming effect on our muscles and joints helping to reduce chronic pain. * the greatest function of calcium in the body is its work with phosphorus to build and maintain healthy strong bones. * muscle cramps, joint pain and an overall feeling of discomfort are actually the signs of a calcium deficiency. * apart from getting more calcium from food or supplements, simple lifestyle changes like quitting smoking, and incorporating weight bearing exercises can help to protect your bones and joints. Regards!

Would you please recommend an effective treatment to control the terrific pain around the knees due to Osteoporosis/Osteoarthritis without any side effects?

DNB ORTHO, MNAMS (Membership of the National Academy) (General Surgery) , MS ORTHO, MBBS
Orthopedist,
Ossteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affects almost everyone. It occurs when the protective cartilage wear off. Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint in your body, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips and spine. There is no Cure for Osteoarthritis. But staying active, maintaining a healthy weight and other treatments may slow progression of the disease and help improve pain and joint function. Symptoms Osteoarthritis symptoms often develop slowly and worsen over time. Signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis include: 1) Pain. 2) Tenderness. Light pressure gives pain. 3) Stiffness. 4) Loss of flexibility 5) Grating sensation 6) Bone spurs. These extra bits of bone, which feel like hard lumps, may form around the affected joint. Causes Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage that cushions the ends of bones in your joints gradually deteriorates. Cartilage is a firm, slippery tissue that permits nearly frictionless joint motion. In osteoarthritis, the slick surface of the cartilage becomes rough. Eventually, if the cartilage wears down completely, you may be left with bone rubbing on bone. Risk factors Factors increase risk of osteoarthritis include: 1) Older age. The risk of osteoarthritis increases with age. 2) Sex. Women are more likely to develop osteoarthritis, though it isn't clear why. 3) Obesity. Carrying extra body weight contributes to osteoarthritis in several ways. It puts added stress on weight-bearing joints, such as your hips and knees. In addition, fat tissue produces proteins that may cause harmful inflammation in and around your joints. 4) Joint injuries. Injuries, such as those that occur when playing sports or from an accident, may increase the risk of osteoarthritis. 5) Certain occupations. If your job includes tasks that place repetitive stress on a particular joint, that joint may eventually develop osteoarthritis. 6) Genetics. Some people inherit a tendency to develop osteoarthritis. 7) Bone deformities. Some people are born with malformed joints or defective cartilage, which can increase the risk of osteoarthritis. 8) Other diseases. Having diabetes or other rheumatic diseases such as gout and rheumatoid arthritis can increase your risk of osteoarthritis. Complications Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that worsens over time. Joint pain and stiffness may become severe enough to make daily tasks difficult. Some people are no longer able to work. When joint pain is this severe, doctors may suggest joint replacement surgery. Tests and diagnosis Clinical Examination, X Rays and Blood tests. Treatments and drugs 1) Medications A. Acetaminophen. B. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). 2) Therapy A. Physical therapy. B. Occupational therapy. C. Braces or shoe inserts. D.A chronic pain class – Training in group 3) Surgical and other procedures A. Cortisone shots. B. Lubrication injections. C. Realigning bones. D. Joint replacement. 4) Lifestyle and home remedies A. Exercise. B. Lose weight. C. Use heat and cold to manage pain. D. Apply over-the-counter pain creams. E. Use assistive devices. 5) Alternative medicine (I do not believe but people use) A. Acupuncture. B. Glucosamine and chondroitin. C. Avocado-soybean unsaponifiables. D. Tai chi and yoga.

I have very pain in my left leg knee from two days. I can't even bend also. What is the problem to me and what should I do.

Erasmus Mundus Master in Adapted Physical Activity, MPT, BPTh/BPT

This is a general strain due to excessive walking or standing and for this I suggest you to follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes. One time you can do hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain.

I am a 37 yrs male. I am having pins and needles on my inner side of the right foot for the past 4 days. I am feeling like having numbness too. What should I do?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. These sensations are actually called as paresthesias and are symptoms due to nerve involvement. There are many causes, but seeing your age, I will ask you to observe it for some time, rule out diabetes, spinal origin of your symptoms. You can meanwhile initiate with physical therapy - tens for 10-14 days and see whats happening. Sometimes these maybe just due to deficiency of important vitamins like vitamin b12, b6, vitamin d etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
