Massage with your thumbs from the midpoints of your shoulder blade towards back of your head upto the lower edge of the ear on your either side. Use oil or waer. Move only upwards only. Afterwards do arm rotation forward and backward slowly acupressure and acupuncture are powerful therapies which gives relief from especially joint pains, back pains and lot of other ailments. I am suggesting you a method by which you can get instant relief and continue to do it. However you consult me privately to get permanent solution.

Backache is the commonest ailment. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do ask for detailed treatment plan. Don? t ignore, lest it becomes starting point of a major problem.

It is called as rheumatic arthritis. If your pain is more in the distal joints, ie. In the upper limbs if the pain is present in the fingers/wrist and in the lower limbs it the pain is present in the toes/ ankle, then we shall definitely say it is rheumatic arthritis. Wear elbow brace and wrist brace which will make her to feel warm and that will make the joints become firm. Hot water fermentation will help.

Dear Dilip, first you be relax, keep all the tension worries a side. think about whole day work, you do you observation of your small activities. see in which positions you are having much pain? try to avoid that. Take some ergonomic advice. Keep one small pillow just beneath your buttocks, if your curvature of spine has changed, then you will get good relief. just do warm water pouring. Give maximum rest to your back muscle but dont avoid your activities of daily living. Just do with pace with slowness. Dont do forcely.

My wife is 62 years old. She had spondylosis (affecting T2, T3 and L4 L5 revealed by MRI in 1997) way back in 1990s for about 8 years. During this period we tried almost all systems of medicines including allopathy, ayurveda, Homoeo, unani, siddhavaidya etc. But none gave a permanent relief. Finally we had settled down on allopathy as this was one of the easy remedies we found. The treatment was to take pain killers and to have bed rest. This was on the advice of my friend who was one of the seniormost orthopaedic surgeons in Safdarjung Hospital Delhi (1997). During these 7-8 years she had consumed a lot of pain killers (mainly diclofenac sodium). In 1998, however, she was cured of the problem by following naturopathy for 15 days in Delhi and following a natural hygiene. Since then she did not have any spondylosis problem. In 2013 (We moved from Delhi to Bangalore in 2003), during one of the medical check up for an Insurance application we discovered by chance that she is having High Blood Pressure (?) (150-90) and doctors advised her to start medicines for high BP immediately (envas-H 12.5 one daily). We continued the medicine for about a year. The medicine was stopped during the Naturopathy treatment in 2014 and the BP became normal. She has not taken the medicine thereafter. However, we used to check BP whenever we visit any doctor and found BP always normal. Recently by chance we found that her BP in the morning (upto around 9.00 am) is regularly in the range of (140-80 to 160-90) but after 11: 00 am the BP is normal (120-80). In the night, say after 8: 00 pm, it is again on a higher side. We are not sure when it started. She does not have any other problem except some occasional common cold (whenever climate changes) and related cough, fever, etc. My question is 1. Whether it is normal to have such fluctuations in BP during the course of the day? 2. Is it pointing to some other serious health problems needing immediate attention? 3. Is it because she stopped Envas-H after taking it for one year? I will be thankful for an early advice.

Blood pressure fluctuation sometimes occur which is normal...if she has blood pressure 150/90...it is not that much high to be worried...instead of taking medicines she should control her blood pressure by doing pranayama yoga and maintaining diet...spondylosis is curable by maintaining posture...and physiotherapy treatment
