I am 30 year old male and I have back pain from last 6 months.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist,
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.

Frozen shoulder is known complication of uncontrolled diabertes. Regular exercise is the only solution to avoid . Frozen shoulder is damage and stiffness of the capsule of joint and losing its softness. The supporting ligaments gets harder and harder day by day causing pain while attempting any movement, hence slow and steady physiotherapy under medication of anti-inflammatory tablets like flexon, combiflam etc and good sugar control is the only way out.

We need to know the cause of this pain. So, you should go for a check up by orthopedics. But for right now you can dip your hand in some hot water for 15-20 min twice or thrice a day. You can massage slowly it if there is no redness or much swelling. Try to move your hand slowly. Do not lift heavy weights. Do not do much work with that hand. You can visit a physiotherapy center for better relief.

Dear well prolonged standing can cause back pain and leg pain. So you need breaks and create fitness. Do a combination of aerobics, yoga and strength training. Gradually you will feel better. Also take balanced diet and good sleep.

Dear doctor, I met an accident and fractured occurred in right leg on 29th Dec 2014. As per the X ray report it is “fracture lateral malleolus right(closed) with fracture 2nd and 3rd metatarsal(closed)”. Initially,the doctor thought for surgery for ankle injury but another senior Orthopedic surgeon of the same hospital after examining the X ray plate, put a POP BACK Slab for 15 days and as per his version chance of displacement was there. On 13th Jan 2015, another X ray was done and the doctor surgeon wrote in the prescription ” X ray shows good alignment, no displacement”. On the same day synthetic casting was put in place of POP Back slab and I have been told to meet him after one month. I was allowed to walk with two elbow supported crutches without giving any load to the right leg. Now I am off from my office since more than one month.Although I am obeying all the instructions given by the doctor, i am feeling some pain on the ankle fracture occasionally. Pain is like needle pushing and some sorts of inflammation but tolerable. No swelling is there at present.Rarely I feel tolerable pain on metatarsal fractures. Is this pain normal ? Can I join my office using crutches now ? when i can walk on my feet? How many days it will take further to drive car ? Please note that I am now 49yrs, wt-74kgs normal built, no BP and diabetes. Eagerly waiting for your observation, doctor, regards, Jayanta Kr. Bhattacharyya

Hello, I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. I have gone through your case summary. Your injury was on 29th December and it is 2nd Feb today. Since cast was applied on 13th Jan it is also 3 weeks since then. If it is an undisplaced fracture then management is ok. We need to get sequential X Rays to look for any displacement because as the swelling subsides fracture can get displaced because there is looseness in cast. Anyway since conservative management is chosen i would like to have a look at you recent X Rays before giving my verdict. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena Ph No : +91-9891359607 Email Id : akshaysaxena2004@yahoo.co.in

Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?

M S Orthopaedics, MBBS

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?
Hello lybrate user, spine block injections are different types of injections which target the pain generating sites. The rationale is to inject an anesthetic agent (block the nerves which sense pain) into the structures which are generating pain. This can be used for diagnosis of or confirmation of a painful structure suspected to be the pain generator. This can also be used for treatment of painful structures, but the relief is mostly for a short term, 3 to 4 months usually. You might also require multiple injections for a longer duration of relief. Some surgeons use a steroid medication for injection as well. This is mainly to decrease the inflammatory component irritating the nerve roots. Steroid injections also give a temporary relief but can have a lasting effect if inflammatory component is the major culprit compared to a mechanical compression of the nerves. But, the decision making for use of injections is quite complex and I would suggest you to consult a spine surgeon experienced in injection techniques for a complete clinical assessment and the right injection for you. Hope this helps.

Hello sir, I am 37 years old person. I m facing knee problems what is the best method for pain gone.

Hello sir,
I am 37 years old person. I m facing knee problems what is the best method for pain gone.
Applying cold compresses to the painful knee is one of the best and easiest ways to reduce pain and swelling. The cold will constrict the blood vessels, reducing blood flow to the affected area and thus reducing swelling. It will also give you relief from the pain. 1. Wrap a handful of ice cubes in a thin towel. 2. Apply the compress to the affected knee area for 10 to 20 minutes. 3. Do this two or three time daily until your pain is gone. A bag of frozen peas also works well as a cold compress. You can opt for alternating hot and cold compresses as well for chronic pains.

May be you lift heavy weight then your shoulder can lift. Increase your weight gradually with variety of exercises. Do exercises with medium weight followed by hold them for few min. In which muscle is loaded. Then increase your weight.

I have back pain since longtime.

Mch orthopaedic, DNB (Orthopedics), Diploma In Orthopaedics (D. Ortho), MBBS
Orthopedist,
The first step is to ensure that he maintain an appropriate posture while working on the desk. Take frequent stretch breaks and drink lots of water. Discontinue using pillow while sleeping straight. Do not lift heavy objects, especially after bending down. Eat a healthy wholesome meal which should satisfy his minerals and proteins requirement. The most essential and long lasting remedy is exercises. Get an xray done to rule out any inflammatory pathology.
