If complate tear of acl is diagnosis than operation is the only option in young age. If you avoid to operate this after some years you loose your knee due to damage of maniscus. I advise you do not delay this surgery.

Your back pain is due to disc bulge with nerve compression. Your pain is there since 18 months. You have not mentioned whether you obtained any relief after exercise. Exercise is recommended in situations like yours add is highly effective. Since its more than a year, you should consult a pain specialist and get treatment known as epidural steroid injection (read my health tip on non - surgical treatment for sciatica) this treatment will decrease your pain and give you opportunity for physiotherapy. Also follow ergonomic measures at work place. Follow these to get relief. 1. Take anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen round the clock for pain relief 2. Take rest for 3 to 4 days but avoid total bed rest. 4. Do back strengthening and stretching exercises daily once pain is relieved. Do exercises under professional guidance. 5. Apply analgesic cream over back followed by warm fomentation. 6. Keep pillow behind your knees at bedtime. While sleeping on sides keep pillow between 7. Do not bend and lift weights. 8. If back pain is accompanied with radiating leg pain or tingling, numbness or weakness, consult immediately for further queries consult again.

What is hallas velgas - deformity of toe of foot. 15 degree angle , painful. Flat foot. What is cure?
Hallux valgus is deviation of great toe of foot laterally. Flat foot is a common associated deformity. Do toe stretches, toe curls- place a towel on floor & pull towel with toes, walk on sand & use hallux valgus splints for proper positioning. If it is a mild case wear plastic foam wedge between great toe & second toe to reduce deformity.

Back pain may be due to strain, sprain, weather change etc. *Avoid bending forward while working on lap top or for any other work. *Don’t sit continuously working on laptop etc. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict bike driving as far as possible. *Don’t carry laptop or any load on your shoulder. Carrying very light loads equally with both hands is better *Sit straight so that back bone gets proper support. A dining chair is better than a laid back sofa. *You can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good *Soft bed will not give proper support to your back bone. Hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow is better. *Get yourself tested whether you have spondylitis problem. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take Calc fluor 200--once daily in the morning for 6 days.
