Go to near by physio and check out your hamstring, gluteus maximus, iliopsoas, and piriformis tightness, take some myofascial trigger release therapy if not works and check out your esr level in blood and consult an general physician and tell your detail history to rule out any renal calculi/ renal pathology.

Why I feel so much pain in outer thighs and hip after doing hamstring stretch. I have l5-s1 herniated disc so my physio suggest stretching exercise. But after doing hamstring stretch I feel so much pain in outer thighs like swelling.

Dear lybrate-user, as you mentioned you have l5 s1 herniated disc. Also, you mentioned that hamstring stretch increases your pain in thighs and hip. Which show that exercise you are doing is aggravating your symptoms. Any disc herniation increases as you bend forward and if you are doing hamstring stretch in sitting or standing touching your toes definitely it will increase your disc bulge and cause compression of nerve. So it will lead to increase in pain. I suggest you to stop immediately hamstring stretch way you are doing. Yes there are alternate ways to stretch hamstring without bending your back. You can google exercise for hamstring stretch without bending back. My suggestions for you is, 1. Not to stand for a long time and if you have to stand than take rest that is lay down for 5 10 min in between every 30 min 2. Most important is: do back extension exercise. 3. Avoid heavy weight lifting for 2 weeks 4. Avoid bending forward (back flexion) try this for the week if you are getting improvement than continue for next 3 week also thank you.

Clasp both hands behind the thigh, locking your fingers. 2.Lift your left leg and place your right ankle on top of the left knee. 3.Hold the position for a moment. This helps stretch the tiny piriformis muscle, which sometimes becomes inflamed and presses against the sciatic nerve, causing pain. 4.Do the same exercise with the other leg.

Feet pain unable to walk freely pain in buttocks area testicle and thighs since 6 months.
Take over-the-counter pain medications, and use a hot pack or a cold pack. Or alternate heat and ice on the area, 15 to 20 minutes at a time, several times a day. Try gentle daily stretches for your legs, hips and buttocks. To relieve pressure, use a cushion when you're sitting. If the problem is still there consult the doctor.

You have to take rest and avoid forceful movements. If the pain does not subside then go for a check up with a doctor. Physical examination and some tests can help in diagnosing the real problem. You can revert after a week or after visiting the doctor and update the latest findings for further clarification. You can take homeopathic medicines if needed (for persistent pain).

Hip Replacement Surgery - The Many Benefits Of It!

Hip Replacement Surgery - The Many Benefits Of It!

Human bones are continuously being removed and formed which is necessary for its proper maintenance. However, in certain cases, especially with aging, some bones and joints will be worn down to an extent where the body will not be able to reform them. This is especially true in the case of hips which may become worn due to age or other problems within the body. 

Hip replacement surgery 
When this happens, a hip replacement surgery can be performed to replace the original joints with a prosthesis or artificial hip which is usually made out of metal or a specially formed composite material or even a combination of the two. Along with other parts, it replaces the natural hip with an artificial hip to restore mobility and other related functions.

Benefits of hip replacement surgery:

  1. Lessening hip pain - This is one of the major factors as well as symptoms of requiring hip replacement surgery. Due to the grinding down of the bones, even the slightest movement causes pain and after the surgery and the recovery period, the pain is lessened.
  2. Correction of bone deformity - When the bones grind down and are abnormally reformed, deformities may occur reducing mobility. Artificial hips will ensure that deformities are corrected and resulting problems are thus eliminated.
  3. Return to normal activities and resumption of normal activities - This is possibly one of the primary advantages of this surgery, although it entails a long recovery period. However, most patients can get back to their normal activities and are able to resume a pain free life.
  4. Ability to have painless sleep - Many people who suffer from hip displacements or bone deformities are not able to sleep properly due to pain. After the surgery and the recovery period, they can return to normal functions and habits, thus are able to sleep properly.
  5. Leg strength increase - Many patients tend to have an increase in their leg strength as one side of the hip tends to become very weak due to bone problems before surgery. After surgery and recovery, the same side tends to have an increased strength due to the implant.
  6. In most cases a lifelong solution to hip problems - As the hip replacement prosthesis is made out of metal and if the operation is successful, it usually tends to last till the end of a person's life and this area usually doesn't tend to have problems again.

If you have leg pain then you have to rule out the casues for having leg pain. First of all check your weight and your haemoglobin levels, as anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there are no issues with the knee joint or back pain. Since you met with an accident probably you would've had blood loss and also you must be having mineral or calcium deficiency that is one reason to feel very rigid or stiff in that area. Hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain. Keep ice in the area where you have pain/or where the muscle is injured.
