Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

Mr. Lybrate-user, this could be a simple coincidence, because usually no pain killer can cause such a serious problem, unless it is an anaphylactic (very severe acute allergy). Plus there is no mention of her other ailments. She may have had some other ailments or conditions related to heart which is not mentioned. So no explaination can be given.

My knees are getting pain after playing shuttle.

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
My knees are getting pain after playing shuttle.
What is the severity of pain? is the pain continuous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from painkillers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Dear you are suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee joints. You will have to reduce your weight drastically by what ever means (consult a dietician). You must change your life style. Use a commode and avoid stairs. Learn exercises from a physiotherapist and spare time for doing them as you spare time for bathing, pooja or eating. They are simple and can be done any where. Even in office and while waiting for bus or metro. Do hot fomentation and apply a pain killer gel and support your knees with 6" crepe bandages 2 for each knee. Take a sachet of collaflex for about 3 months and a pain killer sos. If of no avail. Consult an ortho. Surgeon and get investigated and x-rayed. Take care.

Hii I am suffering from chronic back pain. I have consulted with many doctors and still could not get rid from this. Many of them have suggested surgery but I have heard that surgery is never an absolute safe option. Please guide me. I'll be highly thankful.

Hii I am suffering from chronic back pain. I have consulted with many doctors and still could not get rid from this. ...
This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try. If you have low back pain and sciatica you can undergo intermittent pelvic traction where in your half of your body weight will be added in the electronic traction so that that would help you to reduce the pain, along with interferential therapy stimulations which would help you to get relieved from the radiating pain. Apply ice for the pain to get subsided immediately. If you cannot go immediately for the physiotherapy treatment. Ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. It is suggestible to wear lumbo sacral belt which would help you to build the abdominal muscle tone which itself would make you feel better. You can also wear mcr chappals which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- 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. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Emotional Distress and Back pain
Back pain is one of the problems most often viewed by a physiotherapist.
In fact, four out of five person will have an back pain sometime during their life.
As luck would have it, the majority of patients with back pain gets relief and return to their normal life.
Only some people have longer episodes of back pain. When there is a suffering, It is quite normal to experience emotional reactions to  back pain. These responses can include fear, anxiety and worry  about what the pain means and what harms body have , how long it will last pain  and how much it affects daily life. In fact, pain is a complex experience that includes both physical and psychological elements.
Frequently back pain is also interrelated to a number of factors.
All of these recommendations are designed to cut the emotional concerns and stress most patients experience with pain. Anxiousness about pain and hurt can actually increase your feelings  of pain and decrease  your pain tolerance .

Thither is a cycle between our pain and thought process, as more pain perceived by our body more will it leads to distress, so then it becomes a cycle of more pain and more stress to our body.

Psychological problems about back pain leads to sleeplessness, irritability, and loss of interest in past habits.Sometimes pain increased up to a point that you want to get rid of it any cost.

In order to control psychological  disturbance , it is important to questions about your back pain from your physiotherapist  so you do not leave uncertain or distressed . To know about your pain will help lessen your anxiety.

During the early period, feelings of helplessness, aggression occur. In order to overcome this stress, you need to be sure that your physiotherapy  is attentive to all of your physiological and psychological problems .

You and your physiotherapist  have to do the following:

You can report your pain level and type of pain to your physiotherapist that it helps to make a correct diagnosis.

Be sure your physiotherapist help you in getting away your fears with special assessment concerned to your activities ,lifestyle and age.He also informs you about your condition and make appropriate tests to rule out any serious problem.

Be sure about your physiotherapist that what he is looking for and what is he excluding in making a diagnosis.

Your physiotherapist advises on your activity level and do and don't of specific activities will limit the progression of disease and help in positive outcomes.

The information you receive about your disease from your  disease about the cause of disease and amount of time it will take to come back also affects your pain and anxiety level, and if patients have more positive feelings about their illness than there is a more chance to enough and speedy recovery.
