Dear lybrate-user, gentle massage over the affected part with lukewarm herbal pain relieving oil for 20 minutes followed by hot fomentation. It will relax the muscles and the veins of your affected part improving the blood supply to the organ and giving strength to it. Please avoid over-use of the part affected i. E. Lifting weight - pushing or pulling heavy objects. Give proper rest to the part - let it heal with the time. This will greatly help. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking.

Give rest to involved muscle till pain stops. Apply ice pack 5 times daily for 10 minutes every time. Continue exercises for other muscles. Do taping for involved muscle to provide external support. If you don't get relief, visit shoulder specialist orthopedic surgeon. Dr Prashant Parate Shoulder and Knee Surgeon Arthroscopy and Joint Replacement Specialist Sports injuries Specialist

Based on your symptom set, I think you have shin splints. It requires rest so I would advise you to give running a break for a couple of weeks and then gradually build up again. However you should get an x-ray done to check if there is any stress fracture and get yourself checked by an orthopaedist.

My father is suffering from joint pains since last two months and he is suffering from two much pain?

DNHE, BPTh/BPT, weight management specialist
Physiotherapist, Kolkata
Joint pain can be due to lot many reasons, most common being the early degenerative changes in the joint causing arthritis. Symptoms can be pain, swelling in the joint, locking in the joint. If these symptoms are present then better to consult a doctor and take physiotherapy treatment to bring the pain the long run exercises to strengthen the muscles around that joint need to be done for better management of pain and mobility. Also better would be to rest and keep the knee joint supported (in a brace etc) avoid climbing stairs up and down, avoid squatting on the ground and using indian toilets.

: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

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. Inform after 10 days for further guidance.
