Dear Sir, I am suffering from cervical spondylosis and frozen shoulder. Xray report says that I.V. Disc spaces are reduced at C5 - C6 and C6-C7 levels. My all pathological reports are normal except vitamin D 18.17.I am using sprays Plus capsule and Maxnuron LC once daily and vitamin sachet once a week. Is this curable or should I take some other treatment? My both shoulders have very pain all the time and in the morning my neck is full of stiffness.

knee pain at this age group is usually due to patello femoral (knee cap ) joint problems. if you dont have other joints that are painful and if your uric acid is normal then quadriceps strengthening exercises will help. avoid sitting on the floor and using Indian closet

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. 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.

My both feet are swollen and the swelling on the left feet is worse, paining, unable to wear shoe/chappals and there is a very small boil in the middle of the feet. The swelling is right from the ankle. The right feet does not have much swelling, but it is swollen particularly at the ankle. I have consulted a Govt. Hospital's doctor, who game an injection + tabs (pencilin) to be taken twice daily. What could be the reason for this sudden swelling. Is it because of the heat or do I have Major problem?

General Physician,
Cell turnover is the process by which our skin produces new skin cells which travel from the lowest layer of the epidermis to the top layer and then shed off the skin. This is what keeps dead cells from building up on the skins surface.YOu have no problem and apply coconut oil . The epidermis or surface layer of the skin is renewed every two to four weeks. This rapid turnover occurs because skin is the body's outer protection and is exposed to injury as well as pollution. Despite this constant renewal, we still get wrinkles as we get older

I am 28 year male and having backache from last 2 years. Used lots of ointment and had check up also but no positive results .so what will I do now?

Homeopath, Bareilly
You should visit to orthopedic doctor for proper investigation for the cause of trouble and specific treatment. Maintain right posture of the body because most of the time cause of backache is postural. Eat calcium rich food. Avoid forward bending and overexertion of the spines. Rest on firm mattress. Do mild and bearable exercise of back.

Ankle Sprain: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment!

MBBS, D.ORTHO, DNB (Ortho), Fellowship Joint Replacement, MNAMS
Orthopedist, Mumbai
Ankle Sprain: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment!

An ankle sprain can make life miserable. A sudden twist or stretching (due to incorrect walking, incorrect posture, wearing high heels, walking on an uneven and rough surface, exercise, games) can result in ligament(s) tear (partial or complete tear), affecting the ankle. An ankle sprain is often confused with a twisted ankle. However, the two are different as chalk and cheese. A sprained ankle can be extremely painful, taking few weeks to months to heal completely (depending on the severity).


An ankle sprain is independent of age and sex, affecting anyone and everyone under the sun. The symptoms characteristic of an ankle sprain includes:

  1. The affected region of the ankle may swell up immediately.
  2. Difficulty in walking. In severe forms, a person may find it difficult to place a step.
  3. The area appears bruised and tender.
  4. Excruciating pain and discomfort (severe case).
  5. Stiffness and, in some cases, discoloration of the skin around the tear.

At no point should the sprain be taken lightly. Seek medical assistance at the earliest. Negligence on your part can aggravate the situation. In extreme cases, an ankle sprain can add to your agony and discomfort, affecting the joints, bones, blood vessels, tendons, and cartilage.

Diagnosis and Treatment:


Accurate diagnosis can make the treatment effective, thus accelerating the recovery process. In case of an ankle sprain;

  1. Physical examination of the affected area and a thorough case study is an important diagnostic step followed by many doctors.
  2. X-ray of the affected ankle region can help in a better and more accurate diagnosis.


The course of treatment depends on the extent of the damage. In case of a minor sprain, doctors mostly recommend

  1. Keeping the affected ankle area bandaged (ACE bandage) and well protected. A crutch or a brace is a blessing for people who face difficulty in walking.
  2. Time and again, apply a cold compress on the sprained ankle. A cold compress can help reduce the swelling effectively.
  3. In case of extreme pain and swelling, your doctor may recommend an acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen
  4. Rest as much as possible. While sleeping, use cushions or pillows to keep the leg elevated.

In rare cases where the sprain refuses to heal and becomes unresponsive to the above treatment, doctors may recommend an Arthroscopy or a Reconstruction surgery.

Precaution and Care:

A little alertness and agility on your part can help to deal with an ankle sprain better.

  1. In the case of a severe sprain, try and avoid self-medication as much as possible. It can do you more harm than good.
  2. Exert minimum or no pressure on the affected ankle area.
  3. Indulge in some strengthening exercise as recommended by your physician. It is advisable that you warm up before any exercise.
  4. Avoid heavy, strenuous work as much as possible.
  5. Wearing correct footwear is important. Women who have had an ankle sprain should avoid wearing heel shoes. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopedist.

Do not do any thing, just wait till your due date. It seems you have taken the pill in good time, so most likely you are protected from unwanted pregnancy.
