Hello- cervical spondylosis, also known as cervical osteoarthritis and neck arthritis, is a very common age-related condition that affects the joints in the neck. It occurs because of wear and tear of the cartilage, tissues and bones of the cervical spine. These changes may include dehydrated discs, herniated discs, bone spurs and stiff ligaments. Apart from age, other risk factors for cervical spondylosis include occupations that may cause more stress on your neck, certain neck injuries, incorrect posture while sitting or walking, smoking, being overweight, a sedentary lifestyle and genetic factors. Symptoms-some patient may experience neck pain, mild and chronic pain around the shoulder blades, stiffness in the neck, muscle weakness, headaches, pain along the arms and in the fingers, and a tingling sensation on the shoulders and arms. At times, one may also have symptoms like loss of balance. Here are the top 10 home remedies for cervical spondylosis. 1. Regular exercise 2. Hot and cold compresses 3. Epsom salt bath 4. Garlic garlic gives good results when it comes to cervical spondylosis symptoms. Its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties help treat pain, swelling and inflammation in the neck and surrounding areas. 5. Turmeric due to its anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric is another popular remedy for cervical spondylosis. In addition, turmeric increases blood circulation, which helps reduce muscle stiffness and pain. 6. Sesame seeds 7. Ginger ginger is another widely used home remedy to treat cervical spondylosis. This herb is rich in anti-inflammatory properties and improves blood circulation. Thus, it helps reduce pain and inflammation in the neck and surrounding areas. 8. Apple cider vinegar 9. Cayenne pepper 10. Indian lilac indian lilac, also known as neem, has anti-inflammatory as well as pain-suppressing properties that can alleviate pain, inflammation and swelling in the neck due to cervical spondylosis.

As you mentioned it can be frozen shoulder. For this I advice you to take physiotherapy treatment for 15 days. Or apply heat fermentation with diclofenac gel and shoulder excercises at home can also be done. But physiotherapy will b faster to reduce pain and to gain strength in muscles.

If you have a complete tear - then surgery is the only option as it will prevent early osteoarthritis of the knee joint and other complications.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned pain in legs and back increasing at night. Can you tell me whether there is any weakness in legs, numbness or any other associated neurological symptoms etc? you can start with physical therapy, calcium and vitamin d supplementation, gentle anti inflammatory medication like etoshine for 5-7 days, daily brisk walks for 2-3 km in mornings. We will again see after 2 weeks whether you are improving or not otherwise we will get some blood tests and x rays of the involved region. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Heel Pain: Know its Causes and Treatments

Heel Pain: Know its Causes and Treatments

Oh my aching Heel!! The combination of foot and ankle consists of 26 bones, 33 joints and an excess of 100 tendons. The longest bone present in the foot is the heel. Over usage or injury to the heel would lead you to experience pain in the heels. The severity of the heal pain can range from mild to excruciating. 

The cause behind heel pain is typically associated with excess usage of the heel bone (learn more about to maintain bone and joint health). Straining of your heel occurs if you excessively pound your feet on surfaces that are hard, or you are overweight or even if you wear shoes that do not fit your feet properly. These strains cause irritation in the muscles, bones or tendons that are present in the heels. Some of the other common causes include: 

  1. Heel Spurs: Development of heel spurs occurs due to the continuous stretching of the lining, which covers the heel. Upon continuous stretching, pieces of the lining tend to break off. Development of heel spurs is common in athletes who frequently jog or run. People who are obese also tend to experience pain due to heel spurs.
  2. Plantar Fasciitis: Development of Plantar Fasciitis occurs due to the inflammation of the tendinous tissue that connects the heel to the ball of the foot. Development of Plantar Fasciitis is common in athletes who frequently jog or run as well as people who wear shoes that don't fit the feet properly. It may occasionally be associated with Vitamin B12 deficiency and raised uric acid in blood 
  3. Achilles Tendinitis: This is the inflammation of the Achilles tendon. Achilles Tendinitis occurs commonly in people who have active lifestyles, such as people who are joggers, runners or even dancers. 

Treatment-

Physical therapy, medication or alternative treatments can be used to treat this form of pain. Medications for heel pain can only be in the form of anti-inflammatory drugs. Although these oral medications cannot significantly relieve heel pain, some injections containing substances such as corticosteroids, as well as Arthrocentesis (removal of fluid present in joints using hollow needles) might be able to provide relief. Recently PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injection have been found very useful in treating recalcitrant Plantar fasciitis and heel pains. 

Common practices that can be used to relieve discomfort include: 

  1. Application of ice to the heel for a duration of 15 minutes daily. 
  2. Utilize over-the-counter pain medications .
  3. Have adequate amounts of rest .
  4. Wear shoes that fit properly .
  5. Walking on tip toes to stretch the plantar fascia helps to relieve heel pain.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation. To relieve mild pain: stay off your leg as much as possible apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down please go to a physiotherapist if: you have pain during or after walking you have swelling in both legs your pain gets worse your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment you have painful varicose veins leg pain happens when your muscles are tired or dehydrated. Drink more water if you're prone to leg cramps. Also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps. Pleas check you calcium and magnesium levels. Best wishes.
