I am having leg pain. Some times it is not found but sometimes it suddenly comes. What medicine should I use.
• Stretch Calves • Get a custom made insole. • Hams Stretching. • Sports Taping. • Contrast bath---It is a form of treatment ankle is applied warm water followed by the immediate application of the ankle with ice water. This procedure is repeated several times, alternating hot and cold. Note that the treatment should always end in the ice water, as heat will induce the body's inflammatory response, while cold helps to decrease inflammation.

Having shin pain n pain below ankle since last 1 month. I never did any physical exercise ever so I thought it's normal n will go away with the time. I took dynapar n other tablets. Used bandages n hot water all. But nothing helped. Shin pain comes while walking n due to this. Am unable to continue my waking. Guide me.

Ankle pain. Our suggestion would be to do hot water fermentation along with Cold (ice) therapy. You shall also keep a pillow under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes.

I have recently met an accident and injured my spinous processes from D12 to L3. I have been advised complete bed rest for healing. I request you to please advise for quick healing.

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 which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. Ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. It is suggestible to wear lumbo sacral belt which would help you to build the abdominal muscle tone which itself would make you feel better. You can also wear mcr chappals which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain.

I am 21 years old. I have fracture in c2 vertebra. What are the step to easily recovery from this?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Pune
Hello lybrate user, c2 vertebral fracture is a serious condition if the fracture is displaced. You need to consult a spine surgeon. But strict bed rest and use of a hard cervical collar is usually recommended. Get your mri scan done if not done yet. Thank you.
