Doctors, please let me know if any better permanent treatment for a slip disc problem available and what is that?

Hi I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. Treatment of slipped disc depends upon a lot of factors : - What are your complaints with exact duration of symptoms - Are you having Back pain and leg pain or not - What is associated neurology? - What has been your medication history. There is no single solution to slipped disc but if your pain is mild with no neurology the physical therapy with graded usage of medicines is the best solution . Do not hesitate to contact me in case of further queries. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

Hi, apply rumalaya liniment and massage for 10 mins and give hot water fomentation. This can be done thrice daily. If the pain is severe, take tab. Yogaraja guggulu 1-1-1 with hot water after food. Use soft medium sized pillow while sleeping. Perform neck exercises for 10 mins in the morning and evening regularly. If the pain does't subside with these, then go for a neck x-ray to rule out cervical spondylitis.

When the knees touch each other it is called knock knees (medical term is valgus knees). Since it's a mechanical problem the only way of setting it right is by surgery. The type of surgery will depend on your age and the condition of the knee joint surface.

I am 34 years old. I have a problem of neck pain and hair fall. What should I do?
For hairfall - Start taking black til (seasam) with a glass of lukewarm milk early morning. Avoid pickles, spices, oily, greesy food items. Start avle ka murabba. Also have a high protien rich diet e. G. Pulses, dry fruits, black gram, ground nut etc. Also oil your hair with good herbal oil and wash with herbal shamppoo - avoid shampoos with high acid contents. As far as ayurveda's therapy is concerned - start with shirodhara with herbal oil and nasyam therapy for atleast 15 days. This will greatly help. Do gentle massage with herbal hair oil daily night for 15 minutes. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. For neck pain - gentle massage over neck with lukewarm herbal pain relieving oils daily for about 15-20 minutes and hot fomentation afterwards will greatly help in subsiding the pain. These procedures would give strength to your neck muscles and reduce the pain and stiffness. Regular oiling the joint will improve the lubrication also. This will greatly help. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking.   1.
