Hi, I see that you are a little overweight accordance to your height and age. Try to reduce some weight by doing some changes in your diet. Mean while when you are lifting any heavy objects try not to bend your back directly and lifting the object. Whenever you are lifting any weight you have to bend your knees, do not bend your back this will reduce the pressure on your back.

Master in Physiotherapy
Physiotherapist, Hubli-Dharwad
Dear consult your physician regarding continuation of gabapentin. If you're feeling better with tablets then start with back stretching exercises and strengthening exercises. Start walking daily for 20 min. Change your lifestyle like avoid sitting for long time, avoid bending forward lifting heavy weights. Keep check on your body weight. Take care.

Hot packs are very effective

Doctor Of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bachelor of Physical Therapy

Hot packs are very effective
Hot packs are very effective as they dilate blood vessels and increase blood flow, delivering needed nutrients and oxygen to cells in the area being heated, aiding the removal of cell waste and promoting healing.

Sir, for last few months I am suffering from pain at foot, due to this I am not able to stand for more than 2-3 minutes, its like a burning pain at foot.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. See if you have pain in foot region, then it can be due to multiple reasons depending upon which region of foot is involved like front of the foot or back of the foot region etc? but if there is a burning sensation also associated then it may indicate a nerve involvement, so please tell clearly what is the problem. Also have you got tests like vitamin b 12, vitamin d levels done recently after the onset of your complaints? also if you can send me a clinical picture from your mobile phone showing which site do you exactly feel pain and burning sensation, it will be useful? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Your daily habits or age may be the root of your knee problems. Some common home care techniques for knee pain that control inflammation and help to break the inflammatory cycle are protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation, glucosamine supplement also may help. It requires a detailed treatment plan.
