Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Normally at this age, it would be difficult to actually correct a severe deformity without a surgical procedure but if you can send me your full length x rays or a ct scannogram, I can then have a look at them and advise you on what needs to be done for its correction. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

When leg pain occurs after strenuous physical activity, you can simply apply cold compresses. This will help reduce the pain by numbing the affected area and control swelling and inflammation. 1. Wrap a few ice cubes (or a bag of frozen peas) in a thin towel. 2. Apply this pack on the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes, while keeping the leg (s) elevated. 3. Do this a few times a day. Note: do not apply ice directly on the skin, as it may cause frostbite. Also take mag phos 6x - twice daily. Consult me for homeopathic treatment. Recommend me by clicking on recommend option and leave feedback.

You should take Rhus Tox thrice a day for two days five drops in water. Also do massage with any oil one inch above and one inch below and under the Hollie portion of the knee for 15 times each point at night for five days and consult privately after that for further course of action . If you are relaxed then inform me.

Back exercises. Many people go to physiotherapists with back pain. Here are two exercises that help to relieve pain and reduce stiffness in the back: •Dear, 1. Lie on your back with both of your legs straight. In this position, bring your left knee up close to your chest. Hold this position for 10 seconds. Return your leg to the straight position. Repeat with the right leg. •2. Stand up with your arms on your side. Bend to the left side while slowly sliding your left hand down your left leg. Come back up slowly and relax. Repeat with the right side of your body.

I am 52 yrs male, have started having pain in hips both side if I stand for more than half an hour.

Hello Girish, Thanks for showing willingness to regain the fitness as pain in both hips can be quite uncomfortable and as you mention it's affecting your function of standing for more than half an hour. Usually both hips don't hurt together. When they do, commonly it's the lower back the cause. Your symptoms do sound similar to wear & tear changes in lower back. But, I strongly suggest to visit a clinician - Physiotherapist / Orthopedic Consultant for detailed assessment and clear the possibility of any hip pathology. In the meanwhile, you can lean against a wall for support when standing and also you can keep one foot rested on a small step and change to reduce the excess stress on both hips & the lumbar spine for an extent period of time. These tips will just help in controlling the symptoms but not cure it. I hope this is of help in guiding towards your next step to regain your health. Kindly feel free to contact me if there is any further queries. Best Wishes

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. SPRING BEDS, FOLDING BEDS OR THICK MATRESS ARE HARMFUL Use no pillow under the head. DO HOT FOMANTATION. Paracetamol 250mg OD & SOS x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab OD x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again.. Do not ignore .It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned backache as your fathers problem. We expect at this stage that spine will have certain degenerative changes but duration of pain as you have mentioned is from 5 days only. If you have only localized backache with no other associated symptoms like radiating leg pain, numbness, paresthesias etc, and no systemic symptoms like fever, loss of appetite, loss of weight etc, my advice to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or even tab paracetamol which suits you - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied 3-4 times in a day - analgesic spray for local application like dynapar qps spray can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc if you do not improve in 2-3 weeks with this conservative management, we will need to evaluate you further in form of dynamic x rays to look for any instability as a cause for pain and some blood investigations to rule out any deficiencies etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hi lybrate-user, thanks for the query. Please do not anticipate about disease. This will bring only fear and anxiety. The pain in neck can be related to cervical spondylosis. Please investigate it with an x-ray cervical neck (ap and lat view). For acidity I would suggest to have some regular exercise schedule. As you might have sedentary life more. Less of exercise can bring such symptoms. Also please investigate your vitamin d and vitamin b levels. This will help you know better about your health. Kindly do the investigations and followup.
