Over weight is the main cause of her problem. Let her avoid the usual meals and depend only on salads and fruits. If not diabetic. Reduction of weight is compulsory. Further give acupressure with a pencil on blunt edge between the mid portion of the ankle bone and the tendons on either side of the leg. Repeat on the other leg also. Report after 5 days.

Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some arm rotation exercise. Pl consult after 5 days for further treatment.

What are High protein food which we can take daily and access of which has no any side effect. I want to increase level of protein in my body as per doctors I am facing leg muscles pain and hair graying due to low protein level.

BHMS, CGO
Homeopath, Pune
Advice - lentils and soyabean for protein intake, and my advice eat Indian food avoid western food, drink plenty of water, eat local fruits and vegetables. Use ghee and mustard oil in place of refined oil or olive oil etc. All are temporary treatment as per provided information, for permanent cure we need detail history and investigations. Homeopathy is best, safe and effective. We treated every day 2-3 patients of this type of problem with no side effects, no worries our 94% success rates makes sure we're the complete package.

When I throw a ball or something on my right hand the shoulder is dislocating (i can feel the pain) couple of minutes it will be normal (no pain)

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Shoulder pain is common in cricket due to the repeated action of throwing the ball. In most cases shoulder pain is caused by rotator cuff tendonitis, which occurs when the tendons surrounding the rotator cuff become swollen. This injury is usually due to overuse. The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles which serves to protect the shoulder joint. Treatment will usually involve resting the affected shoulder and taking medication to reduce swelling and minimise pain. In cases where symptoms are persistent, surgery may be carried out to prevent injury in the future. The shoulder should be rested until it has started to heal; gentle exercises and physiotherapy will help to gradually build strength around the joint and increase flexibility and movement. It is important to allow sufficient rest periods between demanding sessions of physical activity. Exercises and stretches will help to increase flexibility and strength; this will help to prevent injuries in the future. Please consult orthopedic doctor or physiotherapist in person for detail assessment and management of your shoulder pain.
