I understand your concern regarding shoulder pain. At 58, cause of shoulder pain is usually impingement syndrome and rotator cuff tear. You need to consult shoulder specialist orthopedic surgeon. I think there is no shoulder specialist in jamshedpur. You can try scapular stabilisation exercises and rotator cuff strengthening exercises. If pain doesn't settle, you will need x rays and mri of your shoulder.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - 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 if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. 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.

5 Ways Stress Hurts Your Body, and What to Do About It

Where are you storing emotions in your body?

Have you noticed a painful knot in your neck muscles after a stressful week?
When you hear a song that reminds you of a difficult breakup, do your hands clench or shoulders automatically tighten? Have you taken a hip-opener yoga class and wondered why you were filled with strange emotions afterwards?
Our minds carry our emotional stress, but so do our bodies. The physical clues we experience could be telltale signs of emotional memories. 

Neuroscientists often report that the amygdala or limbic system in the brain stores human emotions and memory. But, the brain is not the only place where your emotions are stored. Your body holds onto your past, too.
Our body is our subconscious mind. Our physical body can be changed by the emotions we experience.?
Research reveals the integrated physiology behind emotion-body connection: 

?A feeling sparked in our mind-or body-will translate as a peptide being released somewhere.
[Organs, tissues, skin, muscle and endocrine glands], they all have peptide receptors on them and can access and store emotional information. This means the emotional memory is stored in many places in the body, not just or even primarily, in the brain. You can access emotional memory anywhere in the peptide/receptor network, in any number of ways. I think unexpressed emotions are literally lodged in the body. The real true emotions that need to be expressed are in the body, trying to move up and be expressed and thereby integrated, made whole, and healed.?

Modern scientific research is still trying to figure out the impact of emotions on the body.
How we experience emotions in the body. Participants were instructed to color where they actively experienced the emotion in their body,ranging from love to shame.
Anger and pride fire up the head, neck, and shoulders. Love and happiness fill nearly the entire body, especially the heart. Anxiety and fear activate the chest, an area where people with panic attacks often feel tightness. Depression deactivates most of the body, especially the limbs, consistent with the sensation of heavy limbs that many people with depression experience.

The bodily experience of emotions is nearly instantaneous.
We feel within the first few seconds of a negative emotion, people automatically tense the muscles in their jaw and around the eyes and mouth. Neurophysiologists explain that with repeated stress, people over time have shorter and shorter neck and shoulder muscles.
We can found that people with depression had chronically tight brow muscles (corrugator muscles) even when they did not think they were frowning. Multiple studies indicate that an increased mental workload results in increased muscle tension in the cervical and shoulder areas, particular in people working at computers.
Muscle tension can lead to chronic pain, knots, and spasms.We can notice that muscle tension decreases blood flow, leading to lower oxygen delivery, lactic acid buildup, and the accumulation of toxic metabolites. Shortening of the muscle fibers can also activate pain receptors. Lack of movement can further reduce blood flow and oxygenation. 
What can we do to prevent the storing of negative emotions in our tense muscles? Take a moment to see where you might be storing stress in your body. Every body is unique, and our bodies change day to day. Notice where you hold onto different emotions in your body, and kickstart the process of releasing these negative emotions with the first step-- giving your body attention and awareness. Here are some common areas of tension:

1. Jaw- Emotions like anger and stress can cause clenching of the jaw and muscles around the mouth.

What to do: Release the jaw by a simple Lion?s breath (link is external) (or if you?re in an open office, you try yawning or sighing with an open mouth)

2. Brow- Feeling down or worried can cause you to knit your brow without even realizing it.

What to do: Release your forehead by raising and lowering your eyebrows 2-3 times. Also, inhale deeply while closing and squinting your eyes tightly, and then exhale while you release the tension and open your eyes.

3. Neck- If you are constantly looking down at papers or at a computer, your neck may be angled in one position for an extended period of time without any movement, causing lower blood flow to your neck muscles. It shows that when mental workload increases, the cervical area feels the effects.

What to do: Bring back blood flow to your neck muscles by rolling your head gently from one side to the other, and then changing directions. Avoid holding your neck in one position for long periods of time.

4. Shoulders- The trapezoid muscle of your shoulders holds up your head, which weighs around 5 Kg.
If you have a sitting desk or computer job, you are likely not moving your shoulders regularly, which can create knots and muscle spasms in the trapezoids.
Increased mental workload directly results in physical tension in the arm and shoulders.

What to do: With an inhale, lift your shoulders to your ears. Exhale and draw your shoulders down and back, guiding the shoulder blades towards each other and downwards.

5. Hips- Most people don?t automatically associate hips with emotions. But hips as storing negative emotions (link is external) hips can lead to an unexpected release of emotions. While there is little possibility that can shed light on the relationship between negative emotions and hips, one study (link is external) has shown an interesting connection between the jaw and hips.
After tension of the temporomandibular joint was released, the range of motion of the hip significantly increased.

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.

Cracks VS Fractures

M.Ch,orthopaedic surgery, MS, orthopaedic surgery, MBBS

Ask Free Question

A fracture separates a single solid object into two or more pieces due to pressure. In medical terms, a fracture refers to a broken bone due to some kind of external trauma. A crack in the bone, on the other hand, it does not cause a clean break in the bone, there is only a separation or discontinuity in the bone material.

A crack in the bone caused due to repeated stress is often called as 'hairline fracture'. Here are the basic differences between a crack and a fracture in the bone and how to treat them:

1. A crack or hairline fracture is rarely caused by a single injury. It is usually the result of bone fatigue, which may be caused due to repeated, concentrated stress over a long period of time and thus, it is also called as 'stress fracture'. Other bone fractures are almost always the result of sudden and severe force on the bones.

2. The skeletal system constantly remodels itself. The cells, known as 'osteoblasts' absorb calcium and secrete bone connective tissue. If a particular site is exposed to recurrent bouts of force (which are individually not impactful enough to cause a crack), over time the osteoblasts in that region malfunction and the crack appears.

Muscular exhaustion can also cause cracks in the bone. Fractures are caused due to sudden external single force trauma to the bone. Nutritional problems like deficiencies of Calcium, Phosphorus, vitamin D and excessive smoking decrease the bone mineral density and increase the chance of both cracks and fractures.

3. Symptoms of a crack are swelling, tenderness and sharp pain in the injured region and the symptoms worsen over time. A fracture has similar symptoms and might also exhibit an external physical distortion and makes it impossible to move that part of the body that where the bone is broken.

4. An MRI is often suggested for detecting the crack or crack-prone areas because an X-ray can only detect the crack after it widens somewhat or the bone starts paining because the rays cannot pass through the tiny gap in bone material. A fracture is easily detectable by an X-ray because the rays pass right through the break.

5. Complete rest for six to eight weeks is the most effective way of healing a crack. Using a walking boot in case of cracks in the leg bones in also helpful. Healing fractures require extensive medical intervention. Surgical techniques like bone grafting and the insertion of metal plates are used to reposition the broken bone.
