Signs of pain in the body should not be ignored (Part 2)

Knee pain

Knee pain can occur suddenly or get worse with squatting, climbing stairs, and pain when you bend over. Experts say the majority of knee injuries rarely require emergencies. For example, pain when climbing stairs is often caused by erosion of the cartilage layer under the kneecap. Exercises such as knee bends and deep squats should be avoided to reduce pain.

However, if you hear a sudden “crack” of injury, swelling in your joint, or feeling loose in your knee, it could be a torn ligament or meniscus and you should see a doctor soon.

Heel tendon pain

It can cause pain in the Achilles tendon. This is the largest tendon in the body and connects the calf to the heel. If pain near the heel is accompanied by swelling and limited movement, you may have Achilles tendonitis. Rest, applying ice will reduce pain.

However, if your symptoms worsen when you walk, especially when you are on the slope, you may have an Achilles tendon tear. This case may require surgery.

Low back pain

People who sit for long hours in front of the computer are at a higher risk of low back pain. If the pain is mild, avoid exercises that make it more severe, such as hiking, aerobic exercise and shoulder presses. In this case, just need simple treatments like rest, ice or stretching.

However, if the pain is accompanied by neurological symptoms such as numbness or tingling in your feet, you may have a herniated disc that causes compression of the nerve roots.

Hip pain

Some pain may go away in a few days except for hip pain. Repeated activities that cause bursitis and pain outside the hip and inside the buttocks may be related to nerves or to lumbar spine disease.

Symptoms of worrying hip pain appear in both young women and premenopausal women when running long distances. Experts say pain in the groin area, increased pain at the end of the run may be a sign of stress fractures, require surgery and should be examined in orthopedics.
