At this age, pain in the shoulder can only be muscular pain. Try applying heating pad over the painful area twice a day. Also do basic shoulder stretches during the daytime. Avoid sitting in the same position for more than 30 mins.

It is? work on computer? related problem. Do some general exercises as well. It could be fibromyalgia rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Do neck & back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Use of cervical collar will give you relief. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?
A spine block or an epidural injection usually does not give good result or long standing relief in discogenic low back ache. Moreover we need to look at the type of disc prolapse n accordingly there r multiple treatments like foraminal block, facet block n intra discal procedures which relieve the pain n in many cases treat the problem for ever.

There can be many other reasons to pain than arthritis. Say, if one has a continuous standing work, one is overweight, mineral or nutritional deficiency, muscular sprain, old history of injury, etc. Further discussion is needed. As you said physiotherapy reliefs a bit, you need to continue with seka or fomentation also.

Is it fresh injury or you have that problem since long. Right now, apply ice 5 times daily for 19 minutes each time. Don't throw anything for a month. Give rest to that part so that it heals.

Hi. Back pain may be due to various reasons. If it is only due to over strain or weakness of muscles. Then spinal extension exercises and core stabilisation exercises will work good.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Can you please tell me which fracture are you talking about? please send me x rays so that I can see alignment and give my opinion. Your diet should be rich in calcium, so lots of milk and milk products, fresh fruits and vegetables, exercises depends upon whats been the time since your injury, normally bones take 8-12 weeks to heal if everything is normal. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
