I have got shoulder pain, tickling sound of bones comes when I throw anything. What should I do?
Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Inform after 5 days.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I can give you a broad outline on how to manage her. Actually pain at calf/leg region can be due to many reasons, commonly it is muscular in nature but it can also be due to tendons, nerves, blood vessels etc. My advise to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - ice packs application intensively with elevation of your limbs at night - take a short course of anti-inflammatory medication as per your body's suitability - stop your physical activity till pain completely subsides - intensive physical therapy, training and proper muscle conditioning once pain has subsided - slow resumption of physical activities with proper pre activity warm up and stretching of muscles and short increments in duration of physical activity each day as per pain tolerance. - we will get some blood tests for you - serum vitamin d and serum potassium levels, esr and crp once you have all these reports then you can contact me as I can advise you for proper supplementation also you will have to tell me which joints is she having pain in, is it knee joints which could be having degenerative arthritis or other joints as well. Also get her vitamin d levels and bone density done so that appropriate treatment can be initiated. 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.

Sir actually I am confused whether I am suffering from knock knee problem or not. Actually both my knees touches each other and ankles also touches each other when I stand straight in attention position. There is no distance between ankles when I stand straight in attention position but at same time there is also no gap between knees. So sir do I have knock knee?

A person with knock knees has a large gap between their feet when they're standing with their knees together. If someone with knock knees stands with their knees together, their lower legs will be spread out so their feet and ankles are further apart than normal. A small distance between the ankles is normal, but in people with knock knees this gap can be up to 8cm (just over 3 inches) or more.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Since there is no mention about actual blood glucose levels like fasting, after food & HbA1c% and current treatment with dosage, it is difficult to comment. However, follwing are few suggestions: 1) Get her blood glucose under strict control with fasting < 100 mg, after food between 160 to 180 mg, HbA1c% <7. Her BP should be properly controlled (120 to 130 /70 to 80 mm Hg. If there is any injury to the leg or foot it should be properly treated by the local doctor or a nurse. Thanks.

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try. And to reduce the weight falling on the inflammed surface we suggest patients to use air cushion pillow (also called as doughnut pillow) where in the buttock's weight will not fall exactly on the painful tail bone and that would automatically reduce the pain.

Wearing a pair of comfortable laced-up shoes which would support your feet, rather than high heels and slippers, will prevent you from falling.

I advise you to take ayurvedic treatment for knee pain if she has not taken earlier. Vata imbalance is the cause of joint pain according to ayurveda. U should take tablet joddaram one tablet three times daily. Tablet mahayograj guggul one tablet three times daily. Apply mahamash oil on knees. U can msg me in my consult if you have any concern.

The shoulder pain which you are feeling could be due to many reasons, it can be due to tendinitis, rotator cuff issues, pain of cervical spine origin radiating to your upper limbs, or any other inflammatory or infective pathology etc. But if there is no swelling, or any other s/s of inflammation etc, then you can start with: - intensive physical therapy for your shoulder initially - take an anti inflammatory medication as per your body's suitability - ice packs for local application 3-4 times in a day - avoid physical activity which increases your pain etc let me know in 2-3 weeks time otherwise we will have to get a few investigations like blood tests, x rays or mri scan for further diagnosis and management.

Hi, backache more than a month needs proper consultation with an orthopedic. However you may ask your father to follow the below: back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work. Causes of backache include: 1) muscle or ligament strain. Repeated heavy lifting or a sudden awkward movement may strain back muscles and spinal ligaments. 2) bulging or ruptured disks. Disks act as cushions between the bones (vertebrae) in your spine. The soft material inside a disk can bulge or rupture and press on a nerve. 3) arthritis. Osteoarthritis can affect the lower back. 4) skeletal irregularities. Back pain can occur if your spine curves abnormally. 5) osteoporosis. Preventive measures 1) maintain a healthy weight. 2) keep your sitting posture correct/straight. Do not slouch 3) avoid bending from back while lifting something from ground, instead bend at your knees. 4) hot fomentation to lower back or the painful part. 5) keep the coir side of your mattress up to give your back firm support and change the mattress if it is curved. 6) wear comfortable footwear with shock absorbing soles in shoes. In case above measures do not help, take rhus. Tox-30, 2 drops in 1 tsp water thrice a day for a week and revert back: now-a-days most backaches are due to vitamin d deficiency. Sit in sun and expose the long bones and back to sunrays. Also drink 2 glasses of milk daily.
