Haver you tried streching your calf muscles, if not do that first. Give icing for your calf muscles and stretch well and followed by streching your quads muscle also. Never do any kind of exercise when your pain is more.

Did you have any injury? What kind of work do you do. There are many queries which need to be answered before telling a treatment. I would suggest you to visit some specialist and get thorough examination done. Then it would be easier to treat you. Neck sound is because of osteophytes most probably. Might not need any treatment if there is no pain or weakness of upper limbs. Regarding Osteoarthritis of knees, treatment depends upon clinical examination. It varies from different exercises, some medicines, or injections in knee to may be Partial joint replacement or Total knee replacement. Joint saving surgery to joint replacement surgery. Many options are available. Everything depends upon your complaints, clinical examination and x Ray findings. I'm Dr Prashant Parate. Shoulder and Knee specialist. You can visit me in OPD too.

I had a cut in my leg 7days ago as I fell from my bike, I didn't take tetanus vaccine as I took it in the month of january 2015 but recently I started feeling stiffness and contraction in the nearby area of which remains for some time and then goes, but it happens every time the move I stand and walk for first few seconds. Please suggest as I have studied that this is a symptom of tetanus.

There are two reason why there s burning sensation. One coz of excess body heat which in turn coz of low water intake. Second coz of micro arterial insufficiency which in turn coz of many reason viz, diabetes, high bp, deficiency of vitamins, excessive fatigue. If you have any of the above problem you need to take care. If none, then a course of multivitamin would do the trick plus pampering the foot as well as legs will be better idea. If nothing above works better consult a doc!

Hi Satish I will not suggest any medicine for this as of now. Hot fomentations will be sufficient for you. Try the following Take warm water in a bucket or tub and add two spoons of common salt into it; sit on a stool or chair and dip your feet in that water and pour the same water on your calf muscles with a mug. Do this for fifteen minutes and twice a day and let me know in one week. I will suggest medicine if you are not better.

Do not take the advise of doctors lightly as they are very crucial. Lifting weights can cause serious cord compressions and permanant nerve damage. Kindly avoid heavy work as far as possible. Take care.

Tips for backache: heavy objects should be pushed rather than pulled. The weight of the objects should be taken in your bent legs and arms and not in your back. During an acute attack sleep with a pillow under the knees. Choose shoes that offer good support in the arch and have low, but not flat, heels. Prop up one foot on a box or low stool when you're standing for a long time. Use a chair that provides support for your back, or tuck a little pillow behind your lower back. Tips to improve balance/alignment/motion: lift your leg so your thigh is parallel to the ground while touching a wall. Hold it for five breaths. For alignment, move side to side while sitting on a balance ball. For motion, try moving forward and backward on the ball.

Continuous giddiness, bone pain, tiredness, no energy, body pain. Please suggest.

One sided back pain in young age is commonly due to muscle strain resulting from incorrect posture. Follow these to get relief. 1. Take anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen round the clock for pain relief for 3 days. 2. Take rest for 3 to 4 days but avoid total bed rest. 4. Do back strengthening and stretching exercises daily once pain is relieved. 5. Apply analgesic cream over back followed by warm fomentation. 6. Keep pillow behind your knees at bedtime. While sleeping on sides keep pillow between knees. 7. Do not bend and lift weights. For further queries consult again.
