I am a 25 year old male, met with an accident this morning. I was riding a bike which fell down on right side, shoulder and elbow are paining severely just able to move a bit, however there is a small external injury. My shoulder is not moving firmly with elbow. I have seen a doctor near by as advised by him I have to keep my arm in arm sling for a week. Can you please advise any other alternative to this as the pain is unbearable (got confirmed that this is not a fracture) Your urgent advice would be appreciated.

No movements would help now, the more you move your shoulder the more it will pain. Rest is the only advice for shoulder joint. Movements at elbow and wrist and fingers can be continued. Ice application at swelling site is preferable. Movements at shoulder can be resumed once pain has come down. Take care.

I am 28 year old and have back pain. What to do?

Orthopedist,
I am 28 year old and have back pain. What to do?
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.

Dear. Sir. I want to know. About shoulder pain. I am. Feeling so much pain in my shoulder. Please tell. Me.
Shoulder is a complex joint and need detailed evaluation and imaging to come to a diagnosis. Xrays with different views will give some idea about bone pathology. Usg can give lots of information about soft tissue and being dynamic study it will give lots of information. Mri will show much more details to confirm the diagnosis. Most importantly clinical examination will lead to a diagnosis and then can be confirmed by imaging.

Advice. 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).

Hello sir, I am trouble a pain in my left leg when I run then the pain start. I ask what is the reason of this pain?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Hello sir, I am trouble a pain in my left leg when I run then the pain start. I ask what is the reason of this pain?
Although you have provided a limited information regarding your leg pain in your age but I will try to figure out few important reasons for leg pains ------------------------- 1. Muscular cramps due to many reasons and the major one is dehydration due to drinking less water during the day-------- 2. Leg bone pains due to exhaustion due to vitamin-d deficiency----- 3. Legs pain can also be due to general weakness or any medical condition that you are suffering from like back pain------------------------- so simply by asking for leg pain will not solve your problem but it can be solved by identifying the exact reason and working accordingly--------- although I will prescribe you few homoeopathic medicines which will help you relieving your pains but again, a history of your complaints will solve your problem permanently---------------------- homoeopathic medicine--------------------------- rhus tox 30 (dr reckeweg) drink 5 drops direct on tongue 3 times daily.-------------- vitamin-d plus (bakson) chew 1 tab daily---------------- drink 2 glass milk daily--------------- go for blood vitamin-d nd esr test---------------------
