Hi, your t score in bmd is low. You need to take adequate calcium and vitamin d supplement to increase it. For now i'll suggest calciferol 60000 unit /week for 8-12 weeks. Though there are better drug such as biphosphonates but that to be taken after evaluation and consultation of specialist.

I met with a minor accident and was diagnosed with a UN DISPLACED 2ND metatarsal FRACTURE (L) MY LEFT WAS PUT IN TEMPORARY PLASTER FOR TWO WEEKS WHICH WAS CONVERTED IN TO PERMANENT PLASTER TODAY. BUT I FEEL IT IS LOOSE. BUT DOCTOR SAYS IT IS O.K. & ASKED ME TO REVIEW IT AFTER ONE WEEK. I BELIEVE HIS OPINION IS ONLY TO COVER UP. WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF IT IS O.K IF THE PLASTER IS TOO LOSE ON FIRST DAY ITSELF.

hi undisplayed fracture has no complications..some surgeons prefer to give a walking plaster with heel...while some advise only strapping of foot in undisplaced fracture.. since it's weight transmitting metatarsal, I would prefer for walking plaster for 4 weeks do not worry if plaster is loose, just refrain from walking for aother 2 to 3 weeks thanks

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Your problems indicate towards a disease called Aamvata. If u feel a little feverish, heaviness after meals, more pain in morning & evening, then this is definitely it. The main treatment includes panchakarma then rasayan karma. Not possible to explain here. Either contact us or see some panchakarma specialist in your area.
