No need of cervical traction hereafter. Just relax your neck muscles. And keep icing for your neck and shoulder muscles and do stretches. Try avoid very thin or very thick pillows use exact height of pillows so as to accommodate your neck contour. It will be cured surely

Hi, the source of problem coulbd be discogenic, xray is not the ideal investigation to diagnose any pathology in vertebral column except vertebral compression fracture. My advise would be to get mri of lumbar spine done to assess how much disc height reduction (which might not cause problem itself, unless it causes herniation posteriorly) or if any disc herniation is there. Visit some interventional pain specialist or orthopedician in your city for proper diagnosis of condition and further management either conservatively with physio (for lumbar paraspinal muscels strengthning or releasing if any spasm is there) or by some minimally invasive interventions such as nerve block or disc decompression depending on grade of herniation. Hope it helps your query.

Hi pain could be because of bony spurs in the heel. Get x-ray done. And wear heel cushions in the shoes, take ultrasound therapy and contrast bath in physiotherapy. It helps along with foot ankle ex's.

I am rangaiah my age is 27 male and have leg pain .give me some suggestions please.
For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Types, Causes And Symptoms of Myelopathy

Types, Causes And Symptoms of Myelopathy

Myelopathy refers to any neurological deficit pertaining to the spinal cord. The three most common types of myelopathy are Cervical myelopathy, Lumbar myelopathy and Thoracic myelopathy. Here are the causes and symptoms of myelopathy.

Causes:

  1. Injury: This is a very common cause of myelopathy. Any type of accident or even a traumatic event can cause myelopathy and perhaps even paralysis.
  2. Spinal stenosis: This is a condition in which the spinal cord narrows and is one of the leading causes of myelopathy.
  3. Degenerative disc disorders: As you get older, disc disorders are more likely to occur, as well as other conditions which affect the spinal column, such as osteoporosis, etc. 
  4. Tumor: It is a little known fact that tumors very often do cause myelopathy. 
  5. Multiple sclerosis: There are many other diseases, which may cause myelopathy and multiple sclerosis is one of them.

Symptoms: 

There are many indications that you are suffering from myelopathy and should consult a medical expert. Here are some of them: 

  1. Change in coordination: It refers to the state, wherein, all of a sudden you may find it harder to move certain limbs the way you want to. Sometimes, it may affect your whole body as well. 
  2. Sudden muscle weakness: It is highly likely, that if you have myelopathy then you will experience sudden weakness in your muscles. 
  3. Decreased hand-eye coordination: This is perhaps the biggest indicator of myelopathy since hand-eye coordination is directly linked to your spinal cord and brain and if they are not functioning properly then hand-eye coordination will be affected.

These are just some of the symptoms of myelopathy, however, the doctor cannot diagnose myelopathy until he conduct certain tests. These tests include MRI scans and other tests as well as a regular physical check-up along with a check of your medical history.

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.
