Hi Although there can be many causes for heel pain like spurs, fascial inflammation, infection, trauma etc but normally plantar fascitis is the most common cause especially if there is no history of any injury or any s/s of inflammation or infection like swelling, skin redness etc. This kind of pain is usually due to inflammation of your heel fascia. It is chronic pain which get aggravated especially when you walk more and is better with rest. Treatment modalities are aimed at relieving inflammation of the fascia, like ice packs, physical therapy, footwear modification and anti-inflammatory therapy.

I am 40 years old male and suffering from neck pain (cervical spondylitis) from 2 years. I came across neck physiotherapy and neck exercises but no use. Also used cervical pillow but got only less relief. Is this curable or not without surgery?

Definitely curable. But you need to find a good doctor who can advise you right exercises. It's a mechanical problem and has to be treated with either physiotherapy or surgery. Surgery is rarely required. Be aware of surgery rackets in big hospitals.

Hello. Uneven sleep - It can be but doesn't persist that long. So, it might be due to - *Bad posture. *Long sitting. *Long driving. *Extra weight. *Weak muscles. You should do - *Maintenance of good posture. *Proper diet. *regular exercises. *Focussed exercise over spinal component. If then also it doesn't go. Do visit a Physio to get it diagnosed and required treatment. You will find some helpful post. Regards!

Top Tips on How to Move Well and Stay Well, to Prevent Back Pain:

Top Tips on How to Move Well and Stay Well, to Prevent Back Pain:

Top tips on how to move well and stay well, to prevent back pain:

1. Make sure you're lifting correctly: from groceries through to lifting goods at work, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, and bend at the hips and knees. Grip the load firmly and hold it close to your body, tightening your stomach muscles and using the strong muscles of your legs to lift. Always keep your back as straight as possible, and gently breathe out. Avoid twisting - turn by using your feet, not your back.

2. Focus on your standing posture: think tall - chest lifted, shoulders relaxed, chin tucked in and head level. Your posture should be stable, balanced and relaxed when sitting, walking or standing.

3. Don't stay seated for too long: ideally, don't stay seated for more than 20 minutes. Even if you're at work, stand up, stretch and walk around. The right back support will also help. Ensure your workstation and computer are correctly positioned.

4. Driving: good support from your car seat will prevent back pain. Adjust your seat to sit comfortably - and make sure you take regular breaks on long journeys. If you need lower back support, use a lumbar roll or a rolled-up towel.

5. Sleep support is key: your mattress should be firm enough to support your natural shape.

6. Exercise to keep your back strong: stay in shape - healthy body weight is less strain on your back. Your physiotherapist can show you how to keep your back flexible and strong with correct back and abdominal exercises.

If your back hurts, don't ignore the pain. Physiotherapists are trained to correctly assess the problem and provide safe effective treatment. For rapid recovery, see your physiotherapist early.

If there is active inflammation and swelling then cold packs for 10 to 15 minutes three times a day can help. Good luck.

I had a frozen shoulder problem for which I was prescribed methylcobalamine, sodium hyaluronate(oral) for more than 9 weeks. I now feel little breathless and having oedema in the legs(slowly receding) after distinuation of the medicines five days back. I am 74 and have blood pressure and ischemic heart. My sugar, cholestrol and uric acid count is in the normal range. Are my problems heart related or otherwise?

Oedema in legs can occur due to a number of reasons including blood pressure medication, heart related problems or even kidney or liver problems. With your clinical history first 2 are stronger possibilities and need to be evaluated

I had torn my knee ACL partially 6 years back. After rehab and strengthening it for 4 months I started playing football again and in the last 3 Years I have done a lot of knee and legs strengthening exercises and never experienced any pain even when I lifted heavy weights on back and front squats. I also kept playing football every now and then but wasn't very regular. Now a few weeks back I started playing football twice every weekend and on the second day I felt a littler jerk in my knee. There was a little pain but that went away in the weekdays and I was able to play on Saturday and Sunday again. But on Sunday I felt that jerk again. Thought it would be best to get it checked out. I had gotten a knee MRI done in December and the doctor told me that its a little torn but if there is no pain I can continue playing and working out. Took the same MRI to another doctor and he told me that I need to get a surgery done and that's the only way to fix this. My question is this- what if I don't get the surgery done? Can I continue playing football? Is there another way to fix this. Are there other things I should try before I get the surgery done? How long is the rehab process post surgery. Will I be bed ridden etc. Please help. Thanks.

You must have torn your acl completely this time since you had a jerk twice and you are experiencing instability in the knee joint and thats why you are not able to play football. You should get another mri of knee and see a sports injury specialist. If there is complete acl tear and you want to play football then you need to get acl reconstructive surgery.
