Patellar Tracking: Your description sounds like patellar tracking disorder. The kneecap (patella) shifts out of place as the leg bends or straightens. The kneecap shifts too far toward the outside of the leg. Weak thigh muscles, being overweight, poor alignment of the knee joints, any injury to the knee, all can contribute. Treatment has two goals: reduce pain and strengthen muscles around the knee. Hv dedicated PT. ...Read more

Weights gym safe disc bulge L 4 5 mirror doing leg press that seated and squats and lunges I no got build up core?

Back pain: Lunges and squats really put a lot of stress on the low back. You risk converting a bulging disc into a herniated disc. Isometric exercises are better to build the core muscles. A weight lifting belt can protect the low back if you have to do the lunges and squats. Consult with a personal trainer to avoid further injury to the low back. ...Read more

Returning to work: It all depends how well you are feeling after the surgery. Pain is very subjective. You may be ready to work in a day, while someone else may need more time. Don't overdo it if you are feeling well. Talk to the doctor who did your surgery for any precautions you need to take even if you are doing well. ...Read more

Knee Cap: It sounds like you are having problems with your Patella or knee cap being out of its normal tracking. This can cause pain with the movements you are describing. You need to see a doctor.

Can I sit cross legged on the floor and do otger yoga stretches 2 months after a hip replacement?

See a Doc: Only your orthopedic surgeon can answer that question. 2 months after hip replacement is still a vulnerable time. The surgery has not usually healed completely by then and there are certain movements you should not do. These are called hip precautions. Your surgeon can give you the very best advice on what these precautions are. Do not risk having a hip dislocation. Talk with your surgeon. ...Read more

Each child is unique: The fact that she is developing so well increases the likelihood that she will be more functional as she gets older. However, every child is different, so there is no way to be precise. The important thing is to continue with aggressive therapy and see the neurologist regularly for medication adjustments, etc. The goal is to give her every opportunity to meet her potential. ...Read more

Get a x-ray: You need to make sure it's not broken first! next, the stability of the joint needs to be assessed. If the colateral ligament is ruptured, you will need surgery. Otherwise, a splint for support should be sufficient. It will take 4-6 weeks to heal if it is just a sprain. ...Read more
