Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I will actually need to understand what was the indication for slab application, so I need two things from you: - doctor's prescription mentioning the injury so that I can understand the indication - x ray of your elbow region 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.

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. 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.

For last 3 months my wife gets leg cramps in the night. It lasts a few seconds or one minute and then it is normal. What should be the reason and the treatment required. Her age is 66 years.

Hello! Cramps could be due to several causes, most of which are simple to tackle. Drinking more water, consuming more electrolytes (coconut water) and starting her on a vit-D supplement would b the first line of action. Tab uprise D3 60k once a week for 8 weeks along with tab gemcal once a day for 8 weeks. This will tackle any deficiencies which are known to cause such cramps. If after a month, you feel the cramping is still happening, you would want to meet a spine specialist who will get more information (like any difficulty in walking long distances, any back/ leg pain) and direct the treatment accordingly. As of now, I believe she will do well with the vit supplementation and more water intake. Hope this was helpful!

I am s software engineer. Some days I have back pain. please tell me a solution to avoid this issue.
I would say back care and ergonomics are the solution to prevent your problem. Sit straight. Your ear, shoulder and hip should be in a same line. Choose a desk where you can rest your forearms till elbow and work with your neck straight. Choose a chair that does not slouch your back. Your thigh should be supported till knee and legs should touch the floor/foot rest (or whatever). Get up every half hour. I know it's not easy but a 30 second break will do wonders for your back. Drink a lot of fluid (not acohol!). 3 liters a day.

I am having ls S1 disk bulge problems if I am having physiotherapist it will cure or not?

DNB (Radiodiagnosis), DMRD, MBBS
Radiologist, Bangalore
Hi, thanks for your query a l 5 - s 1 disc bulge might respond to physical therapy. It cannot be cured completely like before but with precautions and medicine you will feel much better and have a normal life. Please take care not to involve yourself in any activity which might stress your lower back. This will delay recovery and might also cause complications and the pain and discomfort to increase. Avoid doing sudden movement involving lower back and lifting weight more than 5 kg. This will help you recover quickly. For mild pain you should use ointments with muscle relaxant and pain relief. In severe pain plase adk your doctor for oral ner pain reluef medicine and non steroidal anti inflammatory pills. Use of heat pack is also recommended. Regards.
