For leg pain, please follow the below advise: 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.

There are various reasons for hairfall. Rule out fungal infection and avoid using hair oils and strong dyes which contains harsh chemicals. Take tablet hairbless twice daily and apply topical minoxidil lotion 2% twice daily over your scalp. Take balanced diet with fruits, green veggies and sprouts daily. Contact if you have more queries.

If it is not causing any discomfort, then no treatment is necessary. It could be your style adopted in childhood and rooted in your psyche. Use this to create your unique identity. It's not a handicap or abnormality.

Hi. I' m suffering from right hand pain from the neck n it extends to lower back on right side. When stress is there the pain is giving the hard time. The physiotherapy made pain. Worst. What I have to do

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your history indicates that there might be a nerve impingement at the neck region you should ask your therapist to do therapy only with modalities like tens, no exercises in painful periods take a short course of anti inflammatory medication which suits you you can also take medicines for neuropathic symptoms like pregabalin or gabapentin in minimal dosage also I would like to know: - whether there is only pain or any other symptoms like numbness, paraesthesia, weakness in upper limbs - is there any history of fever, swelling, night sweats, loss of appetite and weight etc? if you take rest, ice packs at neck area and follow this conservative regime protocol, you should get better in next 2-3 weeks if other symptoms are not there. If pain increases or any other symptoms develop, then please get in touch with me as we might have to do some tests for you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Is it slip of one vertebra over other or disc slip. If it is prolapsed disc conservative management with rest can take care of 90% of patients. If it is spondylolisthesis then physio is the first line of management.

What To Expect Before and After Spine Surgery?

M.S. Orthopedics, MBBS

What To Expect Before and After Spine Surgery?

Spinal surgery becomes inevitable when back pain cannot be managed with medications and/or exercise. This is a major decision and requires planning for many things before, during, and after the surgery.

Before a spinal surgery- This preparation will help in smooth recovery, especially if you do not have a full-time caretaker.

  1. Discontinue pain killers: Discontinue pain killers at least 10 to 14 days before surgery. These are blood thinners and can prolong bleeding during the surgery.

  2. Prepare for blood loss: Most people experience some blood loss, but not excessive.

  3. Use a toilet seat raiser: Sitting and getting up from the toilet seat may be difficult. The seat raiser is used to increase the height, making this movement easy.

  4. Enable easy access to common items: Before heading for the surgery, keep things which are commonly used within easy reach. This will help reduce movement and avoid searching (especially if someone else is going to be doing it).

  5. Stock it up: Cooking may not be feasible during the initial postop period, and so it is advisable to stock up food items (ready to eats, fruits, soups, etc.) which will come in handy.

  6. Slip-ons: Bending down and tying shoes may not be easy, so slip-ons can be used.

  7. Caregiving: It is always advisable to have someone stay over with you during the initial postop days. They could help with regular household chores, cooking, etc.

  8. Lifestyle changes: Ensure you eat well in the days before surgery, quit smoking, quit/use moderate amounts of alcohol, and exercise as advised by your surgeon.

After Surgery- Post surgery, there will be some pain and limitation of movement. It is important to understand that adherence to post-op instructions will improve the success rate of the surgery. Also, recovery time for spine surgery is slightly longer and affects overall quality of life, so psychological preparation is required.

  1. Postoperative medications: These will be given to control infection and pain in the immediate postop period, and should be taken without fail

  2. Rehab: The surgeon will recommend physical therapy and rehab exercises which need to be followed. Complete recovery may take anywhere between 3 to 12 months. During this time, care should be taken to avoid repeat injury.

  3. Support: Adequate back support should be provided using lumbar support and ergonomic chairs, and the right posture should be maintained. Ensure there is no undue strain on the back muscles.

  4. Weight management: With excess weight, there is too much strain on the lower disks. Therefore, weight should be managed to reduce this strain.

  5. Smoking and alcohol should be completely stopped, as healing can be hampered.

With some preparation, spinal surgery can be sailed through smoothly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Myself debasis kalu I am 25 years old male and have backache pain last 3 month. What should I do?

Myself debasis kalu I am 25 years old male and have backache pain last 3 month. What should I do?
Hello, first of all you should know what is backache and by which factors it caused and aggravated. The usual cause of low back pain is the sedentary lifestyle that we lead these days. There is hardly any movement. We remain seated most of the time and stand for very short periods of time. Unfortunately walking, running and cycling like activities are also not a part of our daily routine. To add to it, our diet consists more and more of junk food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and high fibre foods are consumed less and less. These daily practices lead to obesity. The increased body weight puts lot of pressure on the spine which has to bear all the extra unwanted weight. The back muscles which are already weak due to lack of exercise and wrong posture are unable to cope with this increased load. This causes pain in the back muscles. Management for Back Pain:-Along with medicines for relieving pain, one needs to identify the cause and correct it. This may require some medicines or some correction in your posture or reducing weight or improving your lifestyle. At the same time, there is a need to work on the local muscle strengthening. Back muscles need to be strengthened so that they can bear the weight of the upper body. For this exercises of the back muscles are very helpful. Regular walking is also very helpful as it is a wholesome exercise of the body, improves blood circulation and helps lose weight. Most importantly if you are overweight then losing weight is an important part of the whole treatment plan .Long term use of painkillers for low back pain is harmful Treatment for back pain:- Homoeopathic medicines are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also used for the treatment of chronic back pain.Selection of the exact remedy depends upon the individual symptoms of the person.So share the complete symptom picture for the proper treament. In the mean time take Arnica 200, 3 drops in the morning and Rhus tox. 200, 3 drops at night for 7 days.Take care.

Thank you for your query. * I would suggest you to start taking ghee regularly if you are not taking it. * Also try to avoid junk and dried food frequently. * Body massage with oil will help. * Yogasana will surely help along with proper diet. Mere asana without proper diet might aggravate the condition. *Asananas like bhujanga, manduka, savasana will surely help. For any further informations please feel free to contact. Thank you and take care.
