I was operated for koch's spine with paraplegia (T8-T10) 6 months ago by a spine surgeon. Now I have slight movement in legs but still unable to lift my back up or sit on my own at least, urinary system is good. Can you suggest whether I should consult spine surgeon or Neurosurgeon for second opinion and also suggest me a good spine rehab Centre periphery to mumbai.

Physiotherapist, Greater Noida
U need to take Physiotherapy Treatment for some weeks by a good Physiotherapist, when your muscles strengthened than your problem resolves slowly slowly. U have to do exercises as your physio sujjest. As you say slight movement starts than you can walk properly, but exercise should be in proper way. U can take 2nd &3rd opinion obviously. Good luck.

I am a 48 years old male. My weight is 106 kg & I have knee pains. I have allready stunts in heart. Please tell remedy.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
How is your weight? you may be suffering from osteoarthritis. Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow. 1) the description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice. 2) your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (for example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors) 3) it is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to. 4) for personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter. Www. Lybrate. Com/drsajeev.

Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do streching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you dont get relief consult physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

Common FAQs on Tennis Elbow Treatment

Common FAQs on Tennis Elbow Treatment

A Tennis elbow is a painful condition that affects the tendons due to a condition known as tendinitis, which causes inflammation. This condition will end up restricting the free movement of the elbow and the arm due to the pain and stiffness that it causes. This is due to the fact that these tendons are the tough band of connective tissues that hold the muscles and the lower arm with the bone. Repeated gripping motions and continued tugging as well as activities like weight lifting, tennis, squash and other like carpentry, painting writing and typing, can lead to this condition.

Here are a few methods of treatment and the questions that revolve around them.

  1. Do I have to restrict my movements: Yes, when you have tennis elbow, the very first thing you must do is to give rest to the tendons by curbing those activities that have caused the condition or those which can aggravate the pain and stiffness. Lifting heavy objects, gripping things for prolong periods, other physical pursuits like tennis and other games and more will need to stop so that you do not stretch, strain or pull the tissue.
  2. Can I take pain killers: Yes, you can take pain killers like ibuprofen and acetaminophen in case the pain is unbearable? Always ensure that an orthopaedic specialist takes a look at your arm before prescribing the medicines to you.
  3. Is an ice compress good for this pain: You can use the RICE method for acute pain that is less than 72 hours old. For more persistent pain, you must see a doctor. The RICE method refers to Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. In this method, you can keep your arm elevated and give it rest. You can also use an ice compress and keep it tightly wound with an elastic bandage so as to avoid swelling.
  4. Can I take injections for this condition: Corticosteroid injections may be used for very severe cases. This contains the cortisol hormone and can give good results in the short run.
  5. Are there any non invasive methods for treatment: You can try non-invasive procedures like shock wave therapy which will help in fixing the pain and promote motion gradually. This procedure is usually conducted with the help of shock waves that are passed to the skin.
  6. Is exercising a complete no no: In this case, many orthopaedic surgeons and doctors will ask you to go through physiotherapy so that you can get used to movements and motion after prolonged pain. These exercises will also strengthen the muscles of the area.

Talk to your doctor if the pain is particularly debilitating and discuss surgery for the same.

How to get rid of back pain and leg pain and headache its very pain and please advice me sir i am unable to move and walk.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Hyderabad
Back pain may be due to strain, sprain, weather change etc. *Avoid bending forward while working on lap top or for any other work. *Don’t sit continuously working on laptop etc. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict bike driving as far as possible. *Don’t carry laptop or any load on your shoulder. Carrying very light loads equally with both hands is better *Sit straight so that back bone gets proper support. A dining chair is better than a laid back sofa. *You can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good *Soft bed will not give proper support to your back bone. Hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow is better. *Get yourself tested whether you have spondylitis problem. Your leg pain and headache----Homoeopathy has a good treatment for your all pains without adverse effects. Take Bryonia 200--once daily in the morning.

I am 40 years old female and having leg and knee pain (left is more) for the past 9 months after a fall. What should I do?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

I have been diagnosed with mild cervical spondylosis about an year ago and doctor had suggested me to do couple of neck strengthening exercises. But even after that I feed heavy pain radiating to my shoulders. Kindly let me know what is the exact remedy.

Cervical spondylosis is a disease which is related with the profession, you can start some ayurvedic medicines and some yoga postures which will definitely help your cause and will prevent the recurrence. Start ashwagandharistha 3tsp thrice a day with equal amount of water after meals, with this start bala tail nasal drops with 2-2 drops twice a day, and tab panchamrit loha guggulu 1 tab. Thrice a day, yoga postures like bhujangasana will surely add to your quick recovery.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. Due to mechanism of injury being a fall, I will advise you to get x ray of affected region of spine done so that I can see and rule out a bony injury. Normally if initial injury is well managed, then it should cause no problems in the future. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena
