Sir, It totally depends on healing of your fracture and decision of your surgeon. But these days Physiotherapy is started as soon as possible because it accelerates your healing process and help to rehabilitate your hand as early as possible. But it is generally surgeon's call that when he want his patient to start Physiotherapy. I hope I helped you. THANK YOU!

there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You will have to let me know what injury did you sustain earlier, was that at back, what was the diagnosis at that time and what management was done for it? you have mentioned that you are having back pain, can I ask you on a scale of 1-10 what is the intensity of this pain? I would also like to ask you if it is associated with any leg pain or any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias (electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. Kindly provide a detailed reply to my question and attach all relevant investigations so that I can understand and advise accordingly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Back pain after prolonged sitting can be due to sacroilitis or disc degeneration or quadratus lumborum muscle ( a muscle in our back) strain. Initially you can try conservative treatment as described below. If problem persists consult again. 1. Sit with straight back and change posture in between. 2. Take breaks in between work and walk. 3. Do back strengthening and stretching exercises daily. 4. Take simple painkillers like paracetamol if pain is persistent. 5. Apply analgesic cream or gel over back followed by warm fomentation. 6.Do not bend and lift weights. 7. Keep pillow behind knees at night. 8. If back pain is accompanied with radiating leg pain or tingling , numbness or weakness, consult your doctor immediately

Miss lybrate-user the knee pain of your mother is due to osteo-arthritis. Its a degenerative disease of bone. Typically effecting weight bearing joints. Maintain proper diet of your mother includes milk daily, and fruits. Advise to do walk daily apply medicated oil, do light massage and hot fomentation. If she is over weight, try to reduce it with diet restriction. Make sure her bowel clearance is ok. Constipation and gaseous distention increase the pain. Medicine are required for proper managment. Ayurved is the best solution for osteo-arthritis
