I did disc prolapse surgery (microdiscectomy) before one year. Can I do regular cycling now?
You can do a regular cycling. Make sure that you are using a back belt while exercising. It is good to strengthen your muscles and be fit, but take a few precautions while exercising. Bending forward, lifting heavy weights should be avoided. And brisk walking, cycling can be done with a l-s belt on.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have got pains at multiple joints in the body. My advise to you will be: - catch hold of a good physical therapist and start your exercises - concentrate initially on isometrics for neck region, general conditioning and abdominal strengthening ex - do daily walks for about 2-3 km ( brisk walks) everyday - take adequate calcium and vitamin d ( as per deficiency) - you can use tab ultracet 1 tab sos in case of pain. Please also send me certain tests like: cbc, esr, crp, serum electrolytes, serum vitamin d levels and dexa scan to evaluate your bone density. I presume certain issues in you must be related to degeneration in joints and there could be some inflammation as well. But if you start doing your exercises, try a healthy lifestyle some these issues will get solved by itself. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr. Akshay kumar saxena Consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi.

If it aggravates in morning, most probably it is a sign of early rhumatoid. You should watch your food. Have light, easily digestible foods. Do not take milk, curd, rajma, chhole, paneer, fruits etc. Keep the bowels clear. Contact me privately for medical advice.

I am having acute lower back pain every morning I wake up actually I wake up due to pain the pain is so intense that I have to get out of bed due to discomfort. It's happening since 7 months but after half an hour of waking up the pain disappeared so I never felt a need to consult any doctor but its not seem to go away by time on top of that it is getting worst. Please suggest what should I do or what type of doctor I should visit to get out of this trouble as I tried yoga and other back exercises for it but nothing seems to be working.

If you have a fracture, in the acute phase, it should be immobilized in a forearm-based splint or cast for 3-4 weeks. Gentle active range of motion (rom) of the uninvolved digits, should be encouraged. A physiotherapist can instruct you to perform these exercises on a daily basis at home.

Sir I experience chronic pain,heaviness and discomfort in my back head while studying for many hours. Please diagnose and prescribe me the right remedy for it ? Thanks.

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Hyderabad
As you said yourself that you are studying for many hours it is the most possible reason for it. The aggravating factors could be bad posture, bending position for long hours without break is detrimental to spinal health. Please use ergonomics for proper posture and position of your books while reading or writing to relive your pain. Follow neck exercises daily and heat therapy for the pain at trigger points. Bending for long duration should be avoided. Rotation of the head in all directions possible should be done at frequent intervals. Keep yourself hydrated with atleast 3litres of water every day this helps in the long run and relieves tension off your muscles.
