Joint pains can be due to different reasons. Different medicines for different types of joint pain. For symptomatic relief I can advice you hot water fomentation for pains more than 6 months and icing for pains not more than 1month. Adequate rest to swollen joints and gentle to submaximal exercises to each joint if pain is tolerable for short time.

Hello , in back pain, it is very important to strengthen the back and core muscles. Apart from that do proper warm up before exercise and cool down after exercise. Avoid activities which involve lifting heavy weights or twisting of spine. Do exercise in supervision of skilled professional. Take care! wish you healthy life!

I have pain in my right side shoulder, what type of exercise I have to perform for getting relaxed from this?
At this age, pain in the shoulder can only be muscular pain. Try applying heating pad over the painful area twice a day. Also do basic shoulder stretches during the daytime. Avoid sitting in the same position for more than 30 mins.

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. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.
