It seems you are suffering from nerve compression. Whenever a back nerve compresses or impinge it creates pain over its nerve root. After looking to your pain I am recommending you something: Precautions: 1. Avoid forward bending, if required then bend your knees first and then bend forward. 2. Avoid weight lifting. 3. Sit in chairs or car seats with proper back support. 4. Place pillow under your legs while sleeping or can opt sidelying position for sleep. 5. Get enough vit d from sun as vit d keep bones strong including spine and other bones. 6. Drink plenty of water to enhance the intervertebral disks. 7. Avoid prolonged standing. 8. Change your sitting position every 15 minutes so that it does not pain. If possible visit some neuro-physio who can give you several modalities like SWD, IFT, traction etc to cure the pain. Along with it we have a special program designed in case of sciatica that is Butler’s mobilisation and Mckenzie exercises which a physio gives with the proper technique to get cure from disease. I understand your pain so I am suggesting you the following treatment that you can take at home and can get some relief from pain and discomfort. Treatment: 1. Use of Cold packs- Sometimes piriformis muscle gets tight which cause impingement of sciatic nerve leading to tingling and numbness sensation down into the leg. So ice massage can be given over the area of piriformis muscle or the entire back for 15 min. Once done with cold therapy take rest for 2-3 min to relax the muscles. 2. Since the pain is radiating you can do some below mentioned exercises which will give you immediate relief from pain if done correctly. A) Lie on bed on your stomach gently push up with your arms, resting on your forearms. Hold for 5 secs. Now slightly stretch your back muscles and count till 10 and relax. You might feel a slight pain initially but do not worry. Repeat it 15 times. B) Now that pain must have gone. And now you can push up onto your hands fully. Slowly lower down back to floor. Perform this atleast 15 times. Again a slight pain will be there initially. Once you will complete this exercise program your pain will be relieved right away. If pain is severe while doing the exercise then stop doing the exercise and immediately consult some physio to take care further. Other exercises that can be done in sciatica pain are: 1. Straight leg raising 2. Knee to chest. 3. Hamstring stretch. 4. Back extensors stretches and strengthening. 5. Gluteal stretch. All the above can be done for 10-15 times with the hold (stretch) time of 5 -6 secs Make sure to perform the exercises correctly which will give you relief from your pain and strengthen your muscles. Good Luck and Get Well Soon.

She has a pain in her all joints and also pain in backbone. She has also operation of her backbone.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Hyderabad
She has a pain in her all joints and also pain in backbone. She has also operation of her backbone.
For her---- *Avoid bending forward while working for any other work. *Don’t sit continuously at one place. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict driving/ travel on bumpy road as far as possible. *Don’t carry 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. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take Calc fluor 200--once daily in the morning for 6 days.

Try few things for your back pain: - Apply Ice and Heat Heating pads and cold packs can comfort tender trunks. Most doctors recommend using ice for the first 48 hours after an injury -- particularly if there is swelling and then switching to heat. You can use whichever you find comforting as long as your skin is protected. - Limit Bed Rest Studies show that people with short-term low-back pain who rest feel more pain and have a harder time with daily tasks than those who stay active. -Keep Exercising Activity is often the best medicine for back pain. Simple exercises like walking can be very helpful. But remember to move in moderation, Stay away from strenuous activities like gardening and avoid whatever motion caused the pain in the first place. -Maintain Good Posture most people have poor posture when going about their daily activities, putting unnecessary strain on their backs. -Strengthen Your Core Most people with chronic back pain would benefit from stronger abdominal muscles. If the abdominals are weak, other areas must pick up the slack. When we strengthen the abdominals, it often reduces the strain on the lower back. - Improve Flexibility Too much tension and tightness can cause back pain. By increasing flexibility you need to put an equal load throughout the body from the feet all the way up to the head. -Sleep the Right Way The amount of rest you get is important, and so is the position you get it in. Sleeping in a bad position or on a mattress without support can cause back pain. Back sleepers should put pillows under their knees. Side sleepers should place pillows between their knees to keep their spine in a neutral position. Stomach sleeping causes the neck and head to twist and can put undue stress on the back. -Use Relaxation Techniques Research shows that practices such as meditation, deep breathing and yoga, which help put the mind at rest, can do wonders for the back. -See a Specialist Developing an individualized exercise plan is essential to managing chronic back pain. Some patients need more core strengthening while others benefit mainly from stretching and improving flexibility. Please consult a Orthopedic Physiotherapist for the right exercise plan. Best wishes.

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.

Hello, We can't reverse the established pathology back, but we can control the process in the stage it is so that it wouldn't grow further. Medication: Give her Schwabe's Biocombination-19/ thrice daily and apply Topi-MP gel over the knees. Also, increase her dietary intake of calcium which is present in green leafy vegetables, milk, milk products, sea food, white legumes, dried fig, black-eyed peas, almonds, oranges, seasame seeds. And vitamin D which is essential for absorption of calcium in our body and is synthesized naturally after getting exposed to sunlight, so early morning sunlight for 10-15min., 2-3 times a day is mandatory. Apart from this, let her do walk daily along with physiotherapy will also help you.

How To Treat Cuts And Bruises With Homeopathy?

How To Treat Cuts And Bruises With Homeopathy?

No matter how careful you are, cuts and bruises are something everyone has to deal with. While in most cases, these are not serious enough to require medical attention, sometimes, you may need to fasten the healing process. In such cases, it is a good idea to have a few homeopathic medicines at hand. Homeopathy is a holistic form of medication that addresses the body as a whole and is very effective at speeding up the healing process of cuts and bruises. Homeopathy has negligible side effects and hence can be taken by children and adults alike. Some homeopathic medicines to have at hand include the following:

  1. Arnica: Arnica is the ideal medicine to treat bruises and inflammation. Arnica can be taken internally in pill form or applied topically as a cream or gel. The potency of arnica pills depends on the severity of the injury. However, arnica should never be applied on skin that has been cut. Arnica can also be used to speed up recovery after a surgery or childbirth.

  2. Calendula and Hypericum: These two medicines are usually taken together to heal cuts and bruises. Calendula is applied topically and speeds up the healing process. When applying calendula, care should be taken to clean the site properly before applying the medicine. Calendula can also be used to treat nappy rash. Hypericum ensures that the wound heals completely and is very useful in cases where injuries have caused nerve damage or where fingers or toes have been bruised by being caught in a door. It is also often prescribed to speed up recovery after a surgical procedure.

  3. Ledum: Ledum is very useful in cases where the skin has been punctured as a result of an injury. It promotes the removal of pus in cases of acne and boils and prevents septicaemia from setting in. Ledum is commonly prescribed after animal bites or insect stings.

  4. Staphysagria: This homeopathic medicine is prescribed in cases of sensitive wounds, which involve tissue laceration. Staphysagria is also given in cases where the cornea is injured due to the presence of foreign bodies and after abdominal surgeries. Staphysagria can help speed up the healing process in case of clean cut wounds.

  5. Phytolacca: This homeopathic remedy is used to treat wounds that have a tendency to ulcerate and in cases of injuries associated with soreness and aching. Tissue muscle injuries that can lead to tetanus can also benefit from Phytolacca.

These are just basic indications and there are more than 150 Homeopathic medicines that can be right for you. The homeopathic treatment for Cuts And Bruises is customized for you so that you get long term relief and permanent cure. The homeopathic treatment for Cuts And Bruises is proven to be effective. The right homeopathic medicines for Cuts And Bruises has to be chosen by a qualified and an experienced Homeopathic doctor.
