Contrast bath---It is a form of treatment where a limb or the entire body is immersed in warm water followed by the immediate immersion of the limb or body in ice water. This procedure is repeated several times, alternating hot and cold. Note that the treatment should always end in the ice water, as heat will induce the body's inflammatory response, while cold helps to decrease inflammation.

Hi there you can avoid knee replacement by physiotherapy treatment and following some home instructions. I would suggest you to go to nearby physiotherapist. At home you can. Apply ice pack for 15 minutes which will help. To reduce pain and swelling, avoid bending of knees more than 90 degrees, use western toilet, use knee caps when walking out, do gentle knee exercises and isometric exercises of quadriceps and hamstrings, do gentle patela glides in all directions.

Morton's neuroma involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes. This can cause a sharp, burning pain in the ball of your foot. Your toes also may sting, burn or feel numb. High-heeled shoes have been linked to the development of Morton's neuroma. Many people experience relief by switching to lower heeled shoes with wider toe boxes. Sometimes corticosteroid injections or surgery may be necessary.

Hi there, In my opinion surgery is the last step to go through for any condition. Mainly it's preferred at last stage of the condition when no treatment works. As you said you got fractured spine give it some time to heal and go to nearest physiotherapist to help with any symptoms occurring because of PIVD. Symptoms can be pain, tingling sensation from your back towards hip, tenderness and painful spine movements. If you don't have such symptoms you will be going through some low back strengthening exercises along with abdominal exercises. But only after hearing of your fracture. At home you can use hot pack for 15 minutes and avoid painful movements. If possible share your MRI scans.

Please tell me whether there is any associated swelling, redness of skin or any local rise of temperature. If not, then I will advise you: - ice packs for local application - thumb spica splint for around 2-3 weeks or till your pain subsides - anti-inflammatory medication as per your suitability for 5-7 days let me know after 2-3 weeks time how you are feeling, if you follow above steps religiously, then your pain should go down significantly.

Trapezius muscle strain is commonly due to improper posture when driving or working on computer or mobile or use of improper pillow. Such pain can be relieved by simple measures at home. 1) Take rest for 1-2 days. 2) Simple analgesics like paracetamol or Ibuprofen to relieve pain 3) Application of ice pack helps in new onset pain in first 24 hrs. Later on application of warm pack will help. 4) Massage locally with analgesic cream 5) Perform neck stretches and trapezius muscle strengthening exercises once pain is decreased. 6) Follow good posture habits to avoid further increase in pain. Consult your doctor immediately if pain is persistent and progressive

Advice hot fomentation. Gentle stretching of hand muscles. Ball exercises. Wrist exerciser: 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. Hamstring stretching.
