Vata vitiation is the cause. That in turn, may also be caused by langhan - remain hungary for long time and regular. Drink hot water and milk with turmeric. Bath with hit water. Drink nycanthes leaves (harsingar) decoction daily. Warm oil of mahavishgarbh to be massaged two hrs before bath.

Firstly you should start with active exercises for shoulder in slow motion. Do the strengthening exercises for all your muscles of the shoulder. Then you should do stretching and make sure you gradually progress to light weights. These are resisted exercises which will help you to build up strength. Shoulder is a very important joint in the body as it can perform a lot of movements. Do not ignore the exercises make sure you do these exercises everyday at twice a day. Infact a physiotherapist can help you to to train you with the exercises because your a player you do it the right way so that you can get back onto the field soon. Important notice kindly take rest during your sessions of exercises atleast for 10 days because doing the exercises can cause a little pain and then when you go back to the feild and play and exercises the pain will not reduce. Kindly follow the instructions. Thankyou.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. Your complaints have arisen as per your history from uncontrolled diabetes which initially affected your eyes and is now causing neuropathy. You don' t require a surgical intervention when the cause is a medical one, so my advise to you is to meet up with your endocrinologist and get yourself evaluated, if he suggests to you that it is compression in lower back region for which you have mentioned no complaints, then you may come back to me and we can discuss your case in detail. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

Normally this should not be due to drink. Considering your age you have to get investigated for hypertension diabetes and for osteoarthritis knee. Get your blood pressure monitored along with fasting sugar .and get knee xray ap and lateral in standing position. Hope this information is helpful can contact for further assistance.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism is a hormone deficiency disease. In this condition your thyroid gland is not producing enough (nil) thyroxine. This hormone is necessary for day to day functioning of all the metabolic activities in the body. Therefore, it has to be supplemented every day for the rest of life. Hence there is NO CURE. When on treatment with adequate dose of thyroxine, TSH is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, at that level all the symptoms will be in check. So if the TSH level is 60 mU/L, means there is uncontrolled hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Here most of every one commented on back pain. I know it is commonest problem. And it needs to be addressed.

Exercise and advice what all physios have posted are excellent.

List out as below:-
Muscle strength
aerobic conditioning
Stretching muscle
Posture
Weight loss to change angle of the spine
Dynamic and static stretching
Important of all neural stretch to maintain neural flexibility as most of the sedentary people develop stiff muscles and that leads to decrease neural mobility with due to pinching or getting compressed within the muscles or entry and exit between the muscles. Main nerves for neural stretch is sciatic nerve.
that is the commonest affected. Please do consider in your practices as it will provide a very good outcome for back pain.

and this has to be learned and practice under physiotherapist suprvision

thanks

Hi I can understand your problem 1) avoid activities that make your symptoms worse 2) apply ice packs 3) start physiotherapy treatment as electrotherapy will reduce pain and inflammation 4) exercise and manual therapy will help in pain free movement. Describe your problem in detail and do share investigation reports if you have. Best wishes.
