How can we control severe back pain while driving?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist,
How can we control severe back pain while driving?
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There is actually no absolute remedy but I always advise my patients to keep good posture while driving, try to avoid traveling on uneven surfaces for a long duration and avoid driving for long times at a stretch, take breaks in between, but the mainstay of your management remains hoe well you undergo physical therapy routinely. 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.

1. Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. 2. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. 3. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. 4. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. 5. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

Legs burning below the knee from many years. He visit many Dr. But still same problem.
Lybrate-user ji first of all you should chek your bloid sugar to know if you have diabetes. If you have diabetes than you should take treatment for that. And if that is normal you should chek your vit b12 level if that is less than also can have such burning. If it is so you should take treatment to correct it. In that case you can consult me privately. Thanks.

I'll suggest to do x ray. Till then 1) do massage with warm sesame oil or suitable oil for 15 min. Afterwards take hot fomentation for 10 min. 2) start natural calcium supplement. 3) do regular stretching exercise 4) in yoga do bhujangasan, halasan & suryanamaskar. This will give you relief in mild to moderate cases. Give feedback after 7 days.

How to manage joint pains at home? What are the medicines used to get relief from joint pains.

Occupational Therapist, Kolhapur
How to manage joint pains at home? What are the medicines used to get relief from joint pains.
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.

Before doing any kind of surgery on leg we have to stabilize your uncle and hence first priority is to treat the clot in brain with supportive treatment for leg

Hi as orthopaedician suggested you must b having tear of pisterior cruciate ligament. And the drug which he prescribed is an antiinflamatory drug usually used in arthritis pain. This wil surely help you. If you are gud with this drug its ok. Bt you can not take this drug for a long time. And if you are not wel with the drug you can undergo a surgery to repair your ligament by arthroscopy.

My father having sugar and My father always suffering from leg pain by walking and working please give me suggestion.
If the leg pain is on walking, then it needs evaluation. Get a arterial and venous doppler done for the leg. It will give an idea about the legs circulation & whether it can be managed with medicines or intervention.

Your pain seems to be from knee joint arthritis. Its a common condition which begins as ageing process starts. The extent of arthritis can be ascertained from the x ray investigation. You must start exercises for your knee muscles which will make your muscles strong so that they can take some of the load on your knee joints. Visit a physiotherapy centre ajd take 10 to 15 sittings. It should help.
