Hi, I have been having numbness in my right great toe for the last 2-3 months. In addition, I do have back stiffness at times and pain especially when I exert my back, let's say during long drives or any activity that impacts my lower back. In the last 1 month, I was into yoga with the help of an instructor and not sure if I really did it wrong. I have the habit of doing Vajrasana esp post meals and even sit in ardha padmasana when possible. But in the last 1 month, have developed pain in both my legs esp when I sit cross legged. It's not a lingering pain though but radiates when I release my leg from a cross legged position. Pain is higher in the left leg. Thanks to physio and I feel better. My physio suggested a MRI LS spine. Impressions read as follows: FINDINGS: There is loss of lumbar lordosis. Small anterior and lateral marginal osteophytes are seen from L1 to L5 vertebral level. T1W and TZW hyperintense hemangioma ls noted In L1 and L5 vertebral bodies. At L2-L3 level: diffuse disc bulge indenting thecal sac narrowing bilateral neural foramina without any nerve root compression. At L3-L4 level: diffuse disc bulge indenting thecal sac narrowing bilateral neural foramina abutting left exiting nerve roots. Ligamentum flavum hypertrophy is noted at this level. At L4-L5 level: central and bilateral paracentral disc bulge indenting thecal sac narrowing bilateral neural foramina abutting bilateral exiting nerve roots. Ligamentum flavum hypertrophy ls noted at this level. At L5-S1 level: central and bilateral paracentral disc bulge indenting thecal sac narrowing bilateral neural foramina abutting bilateral exiting nerve roots. Rest of the lumbosacral vertebral bodies show normal marrow signal. The facet joints and posterior elements are normal. Rest of the intervertebral discs are normal in signal intensity. The spinal cord is normal in course, caliber and signal intensity and ends in L1, conus medullaris is normal. I would request advice on the following: 1.kindly Explain this condition in simple terms 2. Suggested course of treatment 3. Implications of this condition if it continues to persist 4. Do s and don't s Thanks.

Leg PainIf 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. If not if the pain radiates down the back of thigh and legs then it might be due to sciatica. Kindly consult the nearby physiotherapist. Hope you recover soon from the leg pain. Pain in the back while walking and standing Pain in the right legIf you have leg pain please check your body weight and your hemoglobin levels, as Anemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. My suggestion would be to wear MCR Chapels which will help you to prevent the weight falling on the If you have back pain while walking and standing first of all check your weight and your hemoglobin levels, as Anemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. My suggestion would be to wear MCR Chapels which will help you to prevent the weight falling on the back. And also should check whether you have flat foot on the right leg that also might be the reason to have pain in one particular leg Pain in the left side of the leg/thighThe compression of the sciatic nerve should be around the right side that's the reason you have pain in the left side. That's the reason you cannot sit or stand and it is exactly around the L5 vertebrae where the sciatic nerve passes by.

Foot Drop

Foot Drop

To avoid dragging the toes, people with foot drop may lift their kneehigher than normal. Or they may swing their leg in a wide arc.

Foot drop can happen to one foot or both feet at the same time. It can strike at any age.In general, foot drop stems fromweakness or paralysis of the muscles that lift the foot. It can have many different causes. Treatments for foot drop vary according to the cause. Most common causes and treatments for foot drop.

What causes foot drop?

  • Foot drop is a symptom of an underlying problem, rather than a disease itself. It can be temporary or permanent. Causes of foot drop include:
  • Nerve injury
  • Brain or spinal disorders
  • Muscle disorders

Here's some more detail on these causes:

Nerve injury. Most commonly, foot drop is caused by an injury to the peroneal nerve. The peroneal nerve is a branch of the sciatic nerve that wraps from the back of the knee to the front of the shin. Because it sits very close to the surface, it may be damaged easily.

An injury to the peroneal nerve may also be associated with pain or numbness along the shin or the top of the foot.

Some common ways the peroneal nerve is damaged or compressed include:

  • Sports injuries
  • Diabetes
  • Hip or knee replacement surgery
  • Spending long hours sitting cross-legged or squatting
  • Childbirth
  • Time spent in a leg cast
  • Injury to the nerve roots in the spinemay also cause foot drop.
  • Brain or spinal disorders. Neurological conditions can contribute to foot drop. These include:
  • Stroke
  • Multiple sclerosis (ms)
  • Cerebral palsy


How do doctors treat foot drop?

Treatment for foot drop will depend on the cause. Early treatment may improve chances of recovery.

Treatments may include:

  • Lightweight braces
  • Shoe inserts (orthotics)
  • Physical therapy
  • Surgery
  • Lightweight braces are the most common treatment. They're used to support the leg.
  • Physical therapy is used to strengthen foot and leg muscles. It may improve a person's ability to walk. In some cases, electronic devices that stimulate the leg nerves during walking may be appropriate.
  • Surgery may be recommended to try to repair or decompress a damaged nerve. In cases where foot drop is permanent, surgery to fuse the foot and ankle joint or to transfer tendons from stronger muscles may help improve gait and stability

Foot drop, sometimes called" drop foot" is the inability to lift the front part of the foot. This causes the toes to drag along the ground while walking.To avoid dragging the toes, people with foot drop may lift their kneehigher than normal. Or they may swing their leg in a wide arc.Foot drop can happen to one foot or both feet at the same time. It can strike at any age.In general, foot drop stems fromweakness or paralysis of the muscles that lift the foot. It can have many different causes.
