This back pain is due to no back exercise. Due to this muscle get stiff. When suddenly you get move fast that time this stiff muscle get break and pain start. In ayurved there is mentioned one procedure KATI BASTI .DO THIS FOR FIVE DAYS WITH MEDICATED OIL if you want to do it you should do it under doctor observation. So consult ayurvedic doctor near you. You will definitely get good result.

Problem in your eye what sort of problem whether its vision problem or something else. Hair loss might be a reason of mal nutrition and also harmonal imbalance. If you use more chemical based shampoo that causes hair loss. You can take trichup tablet twice daily with water after food apply truhair oil with equal quantity of coconut oil check if you have dandruff pain in back might be a cause for weakness you apply mahamashadi taila if its a chronic pain do physiotherapy.

Hi, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back and waist pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc and with no other associated constitutional symptoms like evening rise in temperature, loss of weight, excessive sweating at night etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Hi, is back pain more in night, any mild fever in night, any weight loss, any loss of apetitte, any radiation to leg, is pain more with bending. Etc. Need to evaluate your back pain requires examination, blood tests, x ray. Mri etc. Pl consult orthospine surgeon.

Hi My mom is 60 and she is having knee pain since 3 or 4 years.So what option of treatment ? is the surgery is only easy and permanent cure ?

DNB Rheumatology, Grad. Cert. Paed. Rheumat, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS

Has osteoarthritis. The diagnosis needs to confirmed. If in fact she has osteoarthritis then she needs to be assessed for comorbidities and needs to be put on an intensive exercise program with control of pain using safe pain modfiying medications instead of pain killers. This can be done best by a rheumatologist. The final option is surgery. Surgery is done by an orthopedician. Nowadays if surgery is done properly the risk of failure is < 5%. If you let me know where you live I can give you a reference of a nearby rheumatologist. You can contact me via my website www.Rheumatologybangalore.Com You can get more information regarding osteoarthritis from the document below.

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.

Hello lybrate-user, good morning. Since you said that the pain is present after you met with an accident, please consult orthopaedic immediately for diagnosis and follow their instructions. At present please do hot water fomentation if there is no swelling at the injured area. If swelling present, do icing for 15 minutes by taking some ice cubes in towel and do small circular movements at affected area. Take rest.

Dear lybrate-user. Sometimes medicines will not help in reducing pain. Apply heat fermentation with any pain reliever ointment twice a day for a week. If no change in pain. Then take physiotherapy treatment. Inferential and ultrasonic therapy helps reducing pain.

Hi I can understand your problem. # relax & stay positive. # take hot and cold fomentation. # learn posture care exercise. # use lumbar support. # take break every 20 minutes. # do strengthening exercise of back and core muscles not all back pains are same.

Hello lybrate user, - what you are doing is only temporary relief - look at the cause what is actually giving you that pain - maintain always errect posture while traveling/sitting etc - avoid heavy lifting - do some physical exercise to make your muscles and joints flexible - apply mahanarayana taila before bath to come out of this pain for now. Thank you.
