Lower body cross syndrome is characterised by the weakness in abdominal muscles and pelvic floor muscles along with the tightness of hip flexor muscles and thoracolumbar extensors. Typically, this condition creates an imbalance between the strength and flexibility of synergic muscles of lower limb.
Generally, the group muscles work with counter pressure of equal and opposite forces exerted by them. When the forces become unequal it leads to lower cross syndrome.
There are two types of lower body cross syndrome:
Anterior pelvic cross syndrome: pelvis is tilted posteriorly because weakened abdominal muscles
Posterior pelvic cross syndrome: pelvic is tilted anteriorly because of shortened or tight hip flexors
Lower body cross syndrome can be caused by:
Poor sitting/standing posture
Low back pain (most common)
Reduced range of motion at joint
Treatment of lower boy cross syndrome includes: stretching and strengthening exercises of lower limb.

Laser or light therapy is a treatment that uses photo energy (a beam of light) to treat tissue and can be used to heal skin injuries.
Laser therapy has been used for more than half a century as an effective means of healing. This is also known as cold laser therapy, low-level laser therapy, soft laser therapy, and non-thermal laser treatment.
There are different types of lasers available on the market, usually with the same purpose of providing health benefits. The efficacy of laser therapy is well-established in the medical literature. It has been used for decades to treat a variety of conditions, including pain and inflammation, musculoskeletal injuries such as tendonitis and sprains, nerve damage such as carpal tunnel syndrome, and many other common ailments.
Lasers are one of the most effective and safest medical technologies available to treat pain and inflammation. When used properly, they can help relieve your symptoms without side effects. They work by stimulating the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers produced in the body. In addition, lasers may also reduce swelling, increase blood flow and stimulate tissue repair.
How it works:
A low-level laser beam is applied directly to an injured area or close to an affected organ. The energy of this beam causes tiny injuries in the cells at the surface of the skin or tissue, which trigger healing processes. The amount of energy delivered depends on specific factors such as wavelength, pulse duration and treatment intensity.

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is known as a condition where by the blood flow in the limb arteries are obstructed . Commonly, the legs are the most affected. These arteries are obstructed due to plaque deposits that restrict blood flow through the peripheries. Although blood flow may be also restricted by deep vein thrombosis, which may be a blood clot that occurs in the periphery of the limbs
The most common cause of PAD is atherosclerosis, similarly, they share the same risk factors: smoking, diabetes, age, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia. Uncommon vascular symptoms, such as vasculitis, thromboangiitis obliterans, popliteal entrapment syndrome, and fibromuscular dysplasis, account for less than 10% of cases. It is estimated that up to 60% of patients with PAD will have ischaemic heart disease, and 30% have cerebrovascular disease.
Cigarette Smoking-Cigarette smoking increases the chance of having PAD by seven-fold
Diabetes- Diabetes Mellitus leads to a two-to fourfold increase in risk of cardiovascular events
Age-The risk of PAD increases as the population approaches the age of 50. It has been reported that PAD affects 0.9% of 40-49 year olds and increases to 14.5% of 70 year olds and above .Studies also have shown that men are the target population of PAD
Gender- TASC II guidelines conclude that men are affected at a younger age than women. However, overall there is no clear distinction in risk.
-Occlusion or stenosis of the aorta commonly causes bilateral buttock, thigh, and calf claudication.
Non-healing wounds on legs or feet
Unexplained leg pain
Pain on walking that resolves when stopped
Pain in foot at rest made which worsens with elevation
Supervised treadmill exercise improves treadmill walking performance in patients with PAD.
Supervised treadmill exercise has greater benefit on treadmill walking performance than home-based walking exercise.
Home-based walking exercise interventions that involve behavioral techniques are effective for functional impairment in people with PAD and improve the 6-min walk distance more than supervised treadmill exercise.
Upper and lower extremity ergometry improve walking performance in patients with PAD and improve peak oxygen uptake.
Lower extremity resistance training can improve treadmill walking performance in PAD, but is not as effective as supervised treadmill exercise.
