I have been going for a 5 km walk for years but now after walking for 15 minutes my left leg becomes very stiff and I am not able to bend it for a good 30 minutes. I have to literally lift my leg with my hands to sit in the car. I am 60 years old.

If your knee is paining since 2 weeks, then you have to rethink whether you had any injury in the previous years. I also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. As arthritis is very common if anyone would've neglected any injury in the previous years. You can take Ultrasonic therapy in one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics which would help to heal the damaged cartilages along with shortwave diathermy which would help to improve the blood circulation. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping ball underneath the knee and keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone.

Hi, my both toe's middle fingers have started to bent slightly, right foot more, I've search online, it says its maybe "hammer toe" but mine doesn't look too bad like that of the actual problem, it's only slightly bent, I don't have any problem while walking or in gym whatsoever, so should I use the tape method, where we basically cover the bent part and force it to come in natural position, as it shown on internet or should I only consult an doctor? Anyway, any suggestions will be appreciated, thanks!

You can wear Hammer toe brace to prevent the big toe deformity. It is called hammer toe and if you do not correct it might cause the body weight to shift the center of gravity and you will end up with either back pain or knee pain. Better advice would be to consult a therapist and you can start using it and you have to wear shoe on top of that to fix it in position. Initially you can wear for 4 hours and slowly you can improve wearing until 6-8 hours.

Simultaneously it is better to wear MCR chappals (micro cellular rubber) which will help to transfer the Plantar Fascitis weight evenly in the feet so that the weight will be completely felt in the heel area. You shall do contrast bath to relieve this pain. Contrast bath is nothing but keeping in one tub hot water (bearable heat) and in another tub cold water.
