    Sorry about your troubles but this is not enough information to go on: 1) are you double jointed - can you put your hands on floor and overstretch elbow/ knees past straight? 2) Is there significant pain issues in your family? 3) Do you take any vitamins ( especially Vitamin D)? 4) what is your age and how did widespread pains start? Was there a car accident? 5) do you sleep well? - is there much morning stiffness and if so for how long? 6) do you work on a computer? 7) Do you have...

    For over 30+ years I have had a reoccurring sharp pain near the upper/lateral patella that would come and go. At times it would feel like an IT band problem and the pain would come when walking and the knee would bend. This pain would go away in three to five days and I could go back to squatting weights, hiking, doing treadmill etc. with no problem. Now in my older age of 68 the condition is chronic, weird things like doing wall sits gives instant relief after for a short period of time,...

    Neurological physiotherapy involves the treatment of people with movement and function disorders that have originated from problems within the body's nervous and neuromuscular system. If you get if from theBest Neurologist in Ludhiana it would be more benefit for you.

    Hello there, When I had De Quervain's tenosynovitis my doctor recommended physiotherapy. I eventually started receiving treatment for my chronic headache, neck/shoulder/back pain and tingling/numbness in my arm/hand as well. Because my insurance covers physio treatment unlimited and I've found a great physiotherapist after going to several other ones, I've been getting treatment twice a week. This frequency was originally suggested when I was getting my tenosynovitis treated, and although...

    What would be my next step? Ortho diagnosed OA with only an x ray which I questioned because there is a considerable gap between bones. Doctor says there is no need for an MRI but I have had a sharp pin point pain when touched at the top/lateral side of the patella for 30+ years. I have dealt with this because it always seemed to go away and come back now and then. Now it just stays with me. I have been in the gym three days a week for most of my 68yrs and after a leg workout, squats,...

    Thank you! Yeah, I am determined to get as close to perfect posture/pain free as I can I dropped the ball once (stopped physio exercises), which led to my five years + of sacroiliac joint problems + other ongoing (like piriformis) problems and I do not want to do it again

    Hello, I decided to write here to get your opinion as well. I have visited an ortho and a chiro and both told me different things, hence my confusion. I am not really sure when my problem started and how it started because I have a left knee pain that I feel during certain movements only. It probably started late Oct/early Nov and it was either caused by a muscle disbalance (I was working out for a couple of months outdoors i.e. mostly trained my anterior leg muscles rather than the...

    HI rainbowdragon008 and thanks for your post. Wow if seems you are really focused on all this. Firstly is it not unusual for people to feel a click if they pull their knees to their chest and then extend one leg. The snapping is not really a problem but may be the hip joint itself or the psoas complex 'flicking' over the anterior hip joint. It's possible that the EIL exercises will make that a little more pronounced as you work to releasing the hip flexors and allow more movement of the lumbar...

    Thank you for your response, I will look into this and discuss it further with my dr. So far 4 weeks later, my pain has decreased but am worried about a circulation issue. My left hand seems to have a slightly off color compared to my other. No swelling, no tender spots on my arm. Not sure what to think of it, your thoughts would be greatly appreciated

    If you are still having significant pain, then a low grade infection with an acne producing germ p.acnes might be the cause. Blood work is normal and imaging so so. Read article and take to your surgeon: Horneff III, John G., et al. "Propionibacterium acnes infection in shoulder arthroscopy patients with postoperative pain." Journal of shoulder and elbow surgery 24.6 (2015): 838-843 Propionibacterium acnes infection in shoulder arthroscopy patients with postoperative pain - ScienceDirect

    Hi there! I’ve got a lot of issues (such as piriforimis syndrome) that I’m working through, but I’d like to focus on trying to solve one particular irritating one 1. When I lie on my back with knees bent, my right knee is higher than my left, and my torso is tilted slightly to the left, such as abs very obviously not orientated correctly 2. It used to be worse; I’ve been doing strengthening/stretches on my hips/glutes/inner thighs, etc, and it’s less pronounced, but still there 3. I...

    Hi all I'm new here. Thanks for accepting me. I was looking for some advice I have a pain on my right ankle. I have been trying to strengthen my calves by doing stair dips. I have a indent between my ankle and my achillies tendon. I was wondering if anyone could shed any light on it. I will include a picture. It appears when I point my foot up towards my shin. * sorry won't let me attach a picture* Thank you in advance.
