BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Take mag phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.

I am 51 year old male and have lower back pain for last 1 years. I have check the some doctors to consult. We suggest the exercise daily and use tab. Why do i?

Physiotherapist, Gandhinagar
Dear sir, You must do suggested exercises because majority of the Back pain is due to faulty posture, it means faulty posture occurs due to muscle imbalance in the back and daily exercises will maintain the muscle balancing and provide you a better posture so you can live active life style daily so thats why I suggest do daily recommended exercise to live pain free life.

Enter question for you or someone else. For e.g. I am 25 year old male and have backache for last 2 months. I have used pain relief ointment cream for couple of days but haven’t got any relief. What should I do now?

Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Hello, I would suggest you to consult a physiotherapist, who can diagnose root cause of your problem and treat it conservatively if possible. Meanwhile do not do the activities which increases the pain also apply ice if the pain is localized or sharp shooting. Lying down should relieve the pain. Make note of activities which increase the pain which can be long sitting, forward bending, long standing or walking, cross leg sitting etc and avoid them.

Hi. I am having terrible pain on my foot sole. I have visited an ortho was asked to do x-ray but he said it's normal. He gave me pain killers but now it's 2 weeks and I have no relief. The pain is unbearable I am not able to walk or do any activities. Please if you can help.

MBBS, MD - Anaesthesiology, FIPM
Pain Management Specialist, Pune
Sole pain as in your situation is most likely due to plantar fascitis. There is inflammation of tissue at sole of foot. The treatment mostly is conservative and lifestyle modifications to achieve maximum functionality with minimum pain. Follow these lifestyle changes religiously to get benefit. 1. Reduce body weight as obesity will aggravate the stress on heel. 2. Avoid exercises like running / walking on hard surfaces. Stop such activities when you start developing pain. 3. Roll your feet on bottle of cold water for 20 mins 4 times a day or can apply ice pack. 4. Use shoes with silicone sole inserts. 5. Do calf muscle and heel stretches daily. 6. Avoid prolonged standing or sitting. 7. Use night splint to keep foot flexed at night. Stop using it once pain is relieved. 8. Use analgesics like ibuprofen for decreasing pain and inflammation. If problem persists consult a pain specialist to get plantar fascia injection for relief. With proper lifestyle changes as above 90 % patients have relief and functionality. Only 10% patients would require surgical intervention like plantar fascia release or gastrocnemius recession.

My right leg knee meniscus & acl ligament tear. Should I go for surgery or there is anything other treatment for this like physiotherapy or knee strengthening exercises. Please suggest me a right thing. My age is 29years thank you.

It must be investigated. Get a MRI of the knee. You would probably need arthroscopic knee surgery. It is a very safe procedure in our hands with uniformly good results. Don?t ignore it lest it become beginning of a bigger problem

Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Please tell me duration of pain and what are aggravating factors? how much distance can you walk and what is the analgesic requirement to carry out activities of daily routine? what medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. I also need to see your latest knee x rays so that I know what grade of arthritis are we dealing with on your case? short term solutions for knee oa: - start doing daily brisk walks for at least 2-3 km in a day in mornings. - intensive knee - quadriceps and hamstring strengthening exercises should be initiated initially in presence of a trained physical therapist and then at home on your own - avoid sitting cross legged, not to use indian style washrooms, do not do anything which eccentrically loads the knee and increases cartilage breakdown. - adequate calcium and vitamin d metabolism in terms of appropriate intake is important to keep bone metabolism ok - you can take short course of anti inflammatory medication like tab etoshine on sos basis especially when there is an episode of inflammatory pain, swelling etc. 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.

Hello , there are wonderful exercises for knee which does wonders. Start with electrotherapy for the pain to come down and start strengthening your both knees quads and hams. When muscles get strong your joint will not be loaded with your body weight. Its not an overnight process you have to do the exercises regularly and religiously.

In such a young age backache is showing poor lifestyle, poor diet or may be due to injury. Try to rule out the cause. Panchkarma kati vasti is good option for good relif.
