I am 45 years old woman have back muscle pain left side of spinal cord. Exray shows muscle sweeling. What should I do? I drive scooty is that a reason?

BPTh/BPT, Credentialed Mckenzie therapist
Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Hello , only scooty driving may not be the sole reason for the pain. Try to maintain your postures n positions straight while driving it. Plus if u have a sedentary life style try being a little active. Use stairs instead of lift and walk for small distances. I think this shud help.

You may be having deficiency of vitamin D. Normal level of vit D is between between 20-50 ng/ml. A level less than 20 ng/ml indicates Vitamin D deficiency. 1. Expose yourself to sunlight for 15-20 minutes daily in the morning 2. Take Milk, cheese, egg yolk, Fish (salmon/mackerel/ trout/sardines/tuna) cod liver oil, Mushroom, cereals, orange juice. 3. If you have deficiency of Vitamin D you have to take Vitamin D supplement 60000IU/week fo r 3 months after consulting physician.

No. Laparoscopy is just a diagnostuc process. By this you may not get relief in your compalin. It will increase day by day. You need homoeopathic medicine. It will repair internally. Endometriosis. Nd you will get completely cure. It may take time up. To 1 year. But ideally you should take homoepathic medicine this is safe way. Operation is solution.
