7980557 tn?1395957694 Don't put ice directly on your skin put a towel on then the ice. Is it the quadriceps muscles that's in the front of your leg or the Hamstrings that's in the back of the thigh?

Avatar m tn I went to a doctor and was told it is not Sciatica, and that it is a muscle issue and that stretching therapy to improve my flexibility in my hamstrings, and strengthin my core will help rectify the problem. They also said that poor posture for the 47 years of my life is a contributing factor. Can anybody shed some light on this and some possible remedies?
Avatar n tn For the last week or so now I have had a very slight, high-frequency vibrating sensation in my penis (it feels like it is in my urethra, from about the base of the glans to the base of the penis). It feels like varying degrees of the following sensations: - a cellphone vibrating in my pocket - a stream of fluid flowing through the urethra (without the sensation of exiting the glans) It is not usually constant, but is rhythmic, that is, will come and go in intervals...
1236893 tn?1408490528 An example is stretching your hamstrings causes them to become weaker than your quadriceps. And that could make you more prone to muscle strains, pulls, and tears. When you static stretch it also reduces blood flow to your muscles and decreases the activity of your central nervous system that inhibits your brain's ability to communicate with your muscles, which limits your ability to generate force. That said don't perform static stretching before you work out or play sports.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar f tn Hello, Pain during sex can be due to infection of the vagina, cervix, tubes by bacteria, yeast; lower urinary tract infection; endometriosis (deposits of the inner lining of the uterus in the pelvic cavity); ovarian cyst and tumors ;remnants of hymen; vaginismus (reflex tightening of the muscles at the opening of your vagina);vaginal dryness etc. You need to get all these causes ruled out from a gynecologist.
Avatar n tn I'm extremely active and I play volleyball around 3 hours every day and I plan to play in college. My hamstrings are not tight, most doctors are amazed at my flexibility, and have suggested I'm hyperflexible. I have tried a medrol dose pack, muscle relexers, a tens unit, a back brace, 7 months of physical therapy three times a week which included electrical stimulation, ultrasound, massage, joint mobes, strength excersizes, stretching, traction, and yoga moves.
Avatar f tn I have a problem with chronic pain in my left shin and have had bouts with plantar fastitis. Suddenly by shoe inserts to support my high arches feel awful. What are the right exercises and what else can I do?
Avatar m tn I believe it may be in part due to patellar mistracking. I have been working on flexibility in my hamstrings and quads, as well as strengthening my VMO, since it is weaker than the outer quad muscles. I have been doing wall sits to strengthen my VMO, since squats are too painful and leg extensions agrivate the condition. However, these excersizes seem to do little to help with the pain, even though I have been doing them for at least 6 months now.
Avatar m tn My pain started about 3-4 months ago with mild hamstring pain in both legs. It was a dull sometime shooting pain. I had very little flexibility in my hamstrings until I stretched them. The pain has become more extreme and is now hurting in my lower legs (shin splints and ankle), hips, butt, hamstrings etc. The pain was in both legs but now is 90% in my right leg. Its at its worst in the am when I wake up and pretty much never feels 100% even after NSAIDs.
Avatar n tn Stretching the front and back or your leg to increase the flexibility in your knee. Perform stretching exercises at the end of your workout when your muscles are warm. Stretch the front of your leg in a standing position by bending your knee and raising your foot up toward your backside. Grasp the ankle with your hand to enhance the stretch. Stretch the back of your legs in a seated position with your legs extended on the floor. Fold forward over your straight legs to stretch your hamstrings.

Avatar f tn The past few weeks and especially the past week, my spasticity issues seem to have increased quite a bit. My legs have been so TIGHT the past few days. I swear I must look like tin man when I walk. The are just so stiff! My calf muscles are really hard and I have constant twitching (best word I can think of) in my thighs. My quads & hamstrings are pretty tight too. Yesterday and today were a bit better. Night time is still pretty rough, but I'm kind of used to that.
139792 tn?1447663565 It also works out your hamstrings in a different way, and walking backwards for just 10-15 minutes, four days a week for four weeks has been shown to increase flexibility in your hamstrings.3 A More Intense, Comprehensive Workout in Less Time Interestingly, when you walk backwards, your heart rate tends to rise higher than it does when walking forward at the same pace, which suggests you can get greater cardiovascular and calorie-burning benefits in a shorter period of time.

Avatar m tn I had a head on collision in a car back in 1992. My back and knees were messed up pretty bad. I had 9 months of PT.Eventually I said no more of 3x a week w/3hours of PT. After 18 years my back has gotten so bad I've done all of the spinal injections. I started them about 12 years ago w/ a Pain Specialist. I did the epidural, the facet block and Rhizptomy.
Avatar f tn I'm normally very active and have been for my entire life, I do heavy weight lifting and also have some injuries (ruptured discs in lower back, tailbone pain, and obvious anterior pelvic tilt). All of my muscles are very stiff and inflexible and are very tight and sore deep in the muscle. I sometimes feel spasms all over in my muscles.
Avatar n tn I have suffered from chronic back of leg/hamstring pain for 10 years. Pain in both hamstrings - tightness that is worse when sitting or sleeping. During deep massage, the pain can be brought on by extremely deep pressure, which for me, feels like scratching an itch. It comes on for months and them it goes away for months. I don't sleep well, I'm a light sleeper and I have 3 small children that are up a lot. I am in pain right now and even taking oxycondon doesn't help.

Can it be fully recovered? How long it will recover?? b. Any alternative medical ??? c, Wjhat are the do's and dont's? Please reply asap..
700223 tn?1318169294 Don’t try to ski yourself into shape 2. Stretching is important Stretching improves your flexibility, another key ingredient in avoiding a ski injury. When you stretch, combine both dry land stretching and ski stretches with your skis and boots on once you are out on the mountain. Concentrate on stretching your legs and core, but don’t forget your upper body as well. Don’t forget to stretch when you get off the lift and are at the top of the mountain.
Avatar n tn My condition started in August of 2011. Knee pain started just below the knee cap when bent and pressure was applied. Think - bending down to pick something up that’s in front of you. Preliminary self-treatment was random stretching exercises and icing. January of 2012, I went into the ortho’s office. Got X-Rays. Nothing out of the norm showed up so I was sent to the PT office for evaluation. I was diagnosed with Patellofemoral / Patella Tendonitis.
1168718 tn?1464987135 · In flexor spasticity, mostly involving the hamstrings (muscles on the back of the upper leg), the hips and knees are bent. · In extensor spasticity, involving the quadriceps (muscles on the front of the upper leg), the hips and knees remain straight, with the legs very close together or crossed over at the ankles. Spasticity can also occur in the arms, but is less common. Spasticity may be aggravated by extremes of temperature, humidity, or infections.
Avatar m tn I have short hamstrings which made any kind of flexibility impossible, and caused mild back pain from trying to compensate. All I wanted was to be able to do the things I never could.. gymnastics, dance... and they told me that this could be my magical cure. Instead of being sent to physical therapy first, I was sent straight to physical medicine, where the first treatment option offered was the steroid epidural.
Avatar m tn ) move in my head, I try and imagine my hamstrings stretching trying to reach for that shot, running back for the longshot, running to the net for the drop shot, returning my opponent's smash, maybe this time it's a game of doubles, I have to co-ordinate with my game partner.... you get the point I hope. In short I try and play a very detailed game in my head.
572651 tn?1333939396 I walk around the house when I can and stand to do the dishes and sometimes vacuum. I also stretch a couple of times a day. I stretch while in bed in the morning and then later in the day.
338416 tn?1420049302 While I DO feel worse most times I see them, it may just be because I'm using muscle I haven't used properly in a long time and they are stretching out my leg muscles that seem to be in constant spasm. I agree; give it a try. I can't hurt anything.
1936411 tn?1333835449 My pt has a band tied around my knees so I have to push them out while rolling up and down - I would only do these with someone around especially in the beginning. Lay on table and bend lower leg in at 45 degree angle roll forward on hip and do leg lifts with top leg 30 of them I have found that doing planks also helps because a strong core helps to support legs. One other thing they have me do is stand on foam with my legs together and close my eyes. stand there for 30 seconds 5 times.

Avatar n tn Should consist of extensor strengthening and flexibility and endurance training Prognosis is generally good. Complications can occur in form of loss of substantial disc space, degenerative joint disease of the facet joints may result, with additional symptoms. If the diagnosis is unclear, or if pain does not resolve within 6 to 8 weeks, serial radiographs should be taken to ensure that the lesion does not grow or change in character.
