The reason of the swelling has to be ruled out either it is any injury or work related problem or anything else. If it has appeared withput any stress or strain or any other cause than do ice application on the affected area 3-4 times a day and give rest to your shoulder do not strain or lift heavy weight.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Check whether your wife has migraine prob. She can pour hot water very slowly for 20 mins regularly before sleep. This will help her to reduce headache and also leg pain.

Back pain may be due to strain, sprain, weather change etc. *Avoid bending forward while working on lap top or for any other work. *Don’t sit continuously working on laptop etc. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict bike driving as far as possible. *Don’t carry laptop or any load on your shoulder. Carrying very light loads equally with both hands is better *Sit straight so that back bone gets proper support. A dining chair is better than a laid back sofa. *You can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good *Soft bed will not give proper support to your back bone. Hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow is better. *Get yourself tested whether you have spondylitis problem. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take Calc fluor 200--once daily in the morning.

Muscular fatigue may have caused by exercises. Pl limit exercises. Bath with hot water after gentle massage with Mahavishgarbh oil warmed a bit. Drink turmeric in hot milk twice a day. Avoid loss of semen by sex or masturbation for some time or increase your semen by herbs.
