Carpel tunnel syndrome needs surgery by an expert surgeon, please maintain her ppbs between 140-160 mg/dol. Don't give any pain killer for pain but in case of severe pain you can use volini spray locally.

Reducing weight by exercise, diet restriction. Lifestyle change etc. Otherwise it will cause other problems apart leg pain. Anyway do this simple exercise during your work. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

Stretches for Tight Muscles

Stretches for Tight Muscles

Being flexible is not always about doing splits or doing some random bending. It is about achieving a level of mobility that will not hold you back from doing whatever you are able to do. Most people think that stretching or flexing your muscles and body as the first method to defend you from pain. But if stretching and flexing can be done correctly, it can lengthen one's muscles and give one relief from pains and aches. Stretching is also done to increase the functional range of one's joints and muscles. There are various ways by which one can stretch their muscles. However, the question which looms over here is which is the correct procedure and which is the wrong one.

The Wrong Vs the Right Way: Before discussing about the correct way, let us talk about the various wrong ways in which stretching can be done. The first rule is that if stretching is causing you pain or if it is hurting you, then you are probably taking it too far. A muscle needs to relax as much as possible, if it needs to stretch. If one is stretching so hard that he or she cannot relax then the muscle will not lengthen. Stretching should never be painful.

One should also avoid stretching for an insufficient length of time. Only a few seconds of stretching will not hold the therapeutic effects of stretching.

The following methods are few of the correct ways to stretch:

  1. Always start with the warm muscles. Warm your muscles by doing some aerobic movement or by applying heat with the help of a warm bath.
  2. After warming your muscles, monitor your level of discomfort. Let it go once you feel pain.
  3. Hold any stretch for at least 30 seconds.

Stretching the Correct Muscle: There are muscles, which need to be stretched and there are muscles, which should not be. So getting to know the correct muscles to be stretched is as important as knowing the correct procedure to stretch your muscles. Every muscle, which does not hurt should not be stretched. There are different types of muscles that cause pain like stiff, tight, short muscles and long muscles. Muscles that are tight should only be subjected to stretching. Stretching muscles that are too long is not a good idea.

Using Physiotherapists: Most people who cannot determine which muscle should be stretched and which should not be should consult a physiotherapist. Physiotherapists can quickly and easily diagnose muscular issues. They will also show ways to stretch which are most effective for particular needs.

Stretching should be made a part of one's life. It is a way by which one can become their healthiest self and avoid muscular imbalances.

How Effective Are Pain Killers And Surgery for Back Pain?

How Effective Are Pain Killers And Surgery for Back Pain?

PAIN KILLERS / ANALGESIA

Painkillers-or analgesics-are drugs that work by interfering with the pain transmission process. Although the stronger analgesics are only available by prescription from your doctor, many of the pain killers that you can obtain over-the-counter from your pharmacist can be effective if taken properly.

Remember to always ask your pharmacist for advice and never exceed the stated dose.

BACK SURGERY 

Surgery is only appropriate for a very small proportion of patients with back pain. Rarely, back pain may worsen to the extent that other functions or organs of the body (e.g. the bladder or the bowel) are affected. In the most severe cases, some patients may become paralyzed. Your doctor will use surgery as a last resort, when all other attempts at relieving your pain have failed.

If you have been referred for back surgery, you should carefully consider your options before consenting. As well as requiring many weeks of convalescence,success is never guaranteed and even after surgery the pain may not go away completely. It is important that you discuss the surgery and all the possible outcomes with your surgeon.

Useful questions to ask your back pain specialist include: 

  • What kind of operation are you proposing? 

  • What are the chances of  good pain relief if i opt to have the surgery? 

  • What will happen if i decide not to have the surgery? 

  • What are my other options besides surgery? 

  • What are the possible risks associated with this kind of surgery? 

  • How long will i be in hospital for? 

  • Will i have to undergo physiotherapy after the operation? 

  • How long will i have to  stay off work? 

  • How long after the  surgery will my life return to normal? 

There areTWO general types of back surgery:·        

  • Discectomy- involves the removal of part of a vertebral disc to reduce pressure on a nerve root.     

  • Stabilization/fusion- involves fixing together two or more adjacent vertebrae with bone taken from elsewhere in the body.
