I am 20 years old male and have feel like lack bones in my body. Also feel like crushed in bones since 1 year.
This might be due to low calcium or vitamin d which has more impact on the bone density and also it makes one feel that there is lack of bone strength or in a way the bones are brittle and almost breaking and they feel it is crushed in a way there are many bones breaking at the same time. You have to take vitamin d rich foods. Like milk, cheese, yoghurt, brocoli, spinach.You need calcium consumption to increase bone density. vitamin d intake via supplements or exposure to low levels of sunlight. Vitamin d is used to absorb calcium in the bone and regulate calcium in the blood.

Hi Doctor. I cannot bend the second toe of my left leg after a pinning surgery though the pin has been removed.

It may be because of the immobilisation of the toe. Your muscles would have gone stiff. You can go for physiotherapy treatment.

There is a small bend too about 10 degree its really annoying to see this. I was a child when it happened around 15 years and now I am 22. Please help is there any treatment available. Around 3 months I am wearing a splint at night only.

You have to use the splint finger passive range of motion: gently bend the injured finger with your other hand. Then gently try to straighten out the injured finger with help from your other hand. Repeat slowly, holding for 5 seconds at the end of each motion.

I think I have a difference in my leg length, my right leg is smaller than a left leg I think how I can cure? Please suggest to me.

The non-surgical intervention is mainly used for the functional and environmental types of leg length discrepancies. It is also applied to the mild category of limb length inequality. •non-surgical intervention consists of stretching the muscles of the lower extremity. This is individually different, whereby the tensor fascia latae, the adductors, the hamstring muscles, piriformis and iliopsoas are stretched. •in this non-surgical intervention belongs also the use of shoe lifts. These shoe lifts consists of either a shoe insert (up to 10-20 mm of correction), or building up the sole of the shoe on the shorter leg (up to 30-60 mm of correction). This lift therapy should be implemented gradually in small increments. Treat uneven legs if you have a leg length difference that is causing significant issues, you can either undergo surgery to fix the problems or use a heel insert that goes in your shoe. If you don't use either option, you have to learn how to work around your leg length discrepancy during a workout. Unfortunately, no amount of exercises to correct leg length discrepancy can fix this problem. Leg length discrepancy stretches you're at a greater risk for injury with different leg lengths because one leg is always doing more work than the other. It throws your body off balance and can mess up your ankles, knees, hips and back. With both legs on the ground, your weight is tilted toward the side with the shorter leg, putting pressure on the knee, hip and lower back on that side. To work around that, perform leg length discrepancy stretches on one leg at a time. If you stretch both legs, you'll end up favoring one over the other. Avoid developing lopsided legs by performing leg length discrepancy stretches individually. 1. Hurdler stretch work on each hamstring, one at a time, with this stretch designed for hurdlers. How to: sit on the ground with your legs straight in front of you. Bend one leg and press the bottom of that foot against the inside of your other knee. Reach both hands toward the straight leg and lean toward it keeping your upper body straight. Hold that stretch for 30 seconds, and then switch legs. 2. Side-lying quad stretch by taking the weight off your legs in this stretch, you can focus on the quadriceps muscle without worry about balancing. How to: lie down on your side on the ground. Make sure your body is in a straight line and your legs are stacked on top of each other with your knees straight. Bend your top knee and bring your foot towards your butt. Grab the front of your shin and pull the foot in with your arm. To increase the stretch, bring your knee back behind your body. Hold for 30 seconds, and then flip over and stretch the other quad. 3. Wall calf stretch the wall calf stretch focuses on the gastrocnemius and soleus, the two muscles that make up your calf. How to: stand in front of a wall, about a foot away. Place both hands on the wall with your arms straight. Stagger your feet so that the heel of your front foot is in line with the toes of your back foot. Keep the heel of your back foot down and bend your knee, putting your weight on the back leg. You should feel the stretch in the calf of your back leg. Drive your knee toward the wall to increase the stretch. Stretch each leg for 30 seconds. Read more: how to stretch the outside of the calf muscle 4. Kneeling adductor stretch keep your adductors — the muscles on the inside of your thigh — loose with this stretch. How to: start on the ground on your hands and knees. Kick one leg out to the side with your knee straight. Plant the foot flat with your toes pointing forward. Keep your weight on the knee of the bent leg. Rock your butt back toward the foot of the bent leg, keeping the leg to the side straight. If you can comfortably rock your butt all the way back, reach toward the straight leg with the arm of the same side. 5. Child's pose your quadratus lumborum, which are muscles on either side of your lower back, become uneven when you have one leg longer than the other. That's because your hips tilt to one side and it changes the length of your lower back. Even out your quadratus lumborum with this yoga stretch. How to: kneel on the ground. Sit your butt on your heels with the tops of your feet flat on the ground. You can put a foam roller between your calves and butt if that's an uncomfortable position. Keep your butt back and reach your arms forward, folding over with your upper body. Reach your arms as far forward as possible with your elbows straight. Lower your forehead toward the ground and allow your lower back to round, stretching your quadratus lumborum muscles.
