My dad just fell from bike. His right shoulder is injured. There is pain when he tries to lift his hand sideways.

My dad just fell from bike. His right shoulder is injured. There is pain when he tries to lift his hand sideways.
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. As a general rule, first step is to rule out a bony injury and for that x ray of the affected shoulder is required. If there is no bony injury, I would advise to start with conservative management in form of ice packs, gentle anti inflammatory medication, arm sling and local analgesic spray for application for 5-7 days. If your pain, swelling and other associated symptoms do not subside after 5-7 days time, then we need to evaluate you and look for what soft tissue injury is there exactly? 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.

Peripheral neuropathy is a known complication of diabetes. Keep you blood sugar controlled and take healthy diet with vitamins like b1, b6, b12 and folate. You may consult your physician who may advise few medicines acting on pain pathways like pregabaline and nortriptyline to reduce the sensation of pain associated neuropathy.

There are many causes of backache which r possible to find out only after a proper assessment by your physiotherapist. Still as you say. Seems you r in some prolong sitting work pattern that results in stiffness. Some hot fomentation and back stretching exercises can provide you relief at d initial but make sure you r gonna do exercises under your physio guidance.

Do stretching and strength exercises. Not cure permanent only you can maintain. Surgery is last option but no need surgery. Tk physiotherapy treatment. Avoid long sitting toward bending. Posture correction must.

Hi thanks for the query. From the details you had described it could be post traumatic deformity of the elbow joint. I would like to see clinical and x ray picture to comment on weather correction can be done or not. If the deformity out of the acceptable limits it could be corrected.
