I have a pain in my knee from 15 days what to do. Is my weight a problem?
Hi Thanks for your query and Welcome to Lybrate. I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. Your knee pain could be due to certain reasons but common ones are Chondromalacia, pain due to knee instability, inflammation etc. If there is no history of any injury, and no s/s of inflammation or infection like swelling, skin redness or Local warmth on touching, then i will like to advise you for conservative management initially in form of : - Intensive physical therapy with focus on strengthening of Quadriceps and stretching of other group of muscles - Gentle anti inflammatory medications like Tab Etoshine or Tab Paracetamol can be taken in small doses for 5-7 days - Adequate calcium and vitamin D supplementation as per requirement - Ice packs at home for 3-4 times in a day and see how it goes for around 2 weeks time. If your condition does not improve, then we will have to get certain investigations done. 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. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena Consultant Orthopaedics Fortis Hospital, New Delhi

* sitting puts nearly twice the stress on the spine. Slouching while you sit increases the pressure even more. * slouching fatigues and overstretches the ligaments, causing back pain. * there's no vascular or nerve supply to the discs; they get their nutrition through movement. Reasons for your back pain: 1> tight leg muscles 2> weak back musculature 3> incorrect sitting posture treatment: 1> stretching - stretching of thigh muscles will help a lot. Consult a physiotherapist to teach you 2> strengthening - start exercises like swimming which helps to make your back muscles strong 3> change your position - try and put your wallet/ phone in the front pocket. Sitting upright as well as slouching is the worst posture while sitting. Support your back with a pillow/cushion while sitting.

I am a 55 years old male & have back pain at lower part of spinal cod for last 3 months what should do?

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
This could be due to lumbar spondylosis with nerve root compression. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take paracetamol 250mg od & sos you will need other supportive medicines also. Do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you may have to use lumbosacral support for some time. Avoid painful act/activities. Take medicines as prescribed it may have to be further investigated. Do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

Hi As far as sounds from the joints of the body is concerned, it is usually due to rubbing of uneven joint surfaces on one another, so it is not a cause of concern if there is no associated pain, swelling or any other joint symptoms. As far as pain in his calf muscles is concerned, he has to to do regular physical therapy, adequate calcium and vitamin d intake and can take a short course of an anti inflammatory medication.

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.

hello, this means a part of your spine is bulging out and in later cases it may compress your nerve roots and may cause pain of your lower back and your one or both of your lower limbs causing sciatica. but then, there are two things one is simple bulging of the disc and another is herniation of the disc where there is a tear in the cartilage, the later condition more often causes pain. bulging usually causes no pain. i would like to advice you to have a good posture, sit straight. prefer chairs without cushion. your mattress should not be too soft. sleep on a regular less bulky mattress where you can keep your spine straight. while trying to get up from a lying down position do it from one side. never try to sit up straight from the lying down position. change your position to left or right lateral then take support with your hands and get up. do a set of spinal exercises at least 20 minutes a day. you can do twice a day of 10 minutes duration too. you can consult me for the types and instructions of the exercises. if you have not get pain yet, consider yourself fortunate and start making these lifestyle changes.the pain you get in sciatica is ugly. prevention is better than cure. wish you a very good health.

My wife has backache right after the delivery on-wards. What will be the reason?

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist,
My wife has backache right after the delivery on-wards. What will be the reason?
Backache after delivery is very common and is due to muscular pain. This backache usually resolves after some time. Following measures can also help --- 1- take adequate rest. 24/7 care of newborn makes it difficult to recover from aches & pains after childbirth. 2- healthy nutritious diet rich in protein 3- maintain correct posture, especially when feeding baby, wrong posture will aggravate the existing problem. 4- start a gradual exercise regime but under supervision so not to hurt yourself.

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?
Hi it won't give permanent relief, there will be no pain for three months later the back pain will increase a lot. Consult a physio, it will take time to get better, but the results will be permanent. Hope I answer the question regards.
