It's frozen shoulder most likely. You need to strengthen your shoulder muscles. Do stretching exercises for shoulder.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Since you have mentioned a very long standing issue, ideally I need to examine you in detail as to what is the probable cause for your pain. We will need mri of the spine region and certain other tests to find out a probable lesion and management can be initiated depending upon the site of lesion. 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.

We often take our bones for granted until we break one or are diagnosed with a bone disease in old age. The fact is that our bones are require lifelong protection and nurturing.

The skeletal system encompasses all the bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage in the body. It performs a number of vital functions, like giving your body its structure, aiding bodily movements and producing new blood cells.

The hands and feet contain more than half the body's bones.

Our bones are not evenly distributed throughout the body; some areas in the body have far more bones than others.
Ouhand has 27 bones, and each foot has 26. This means that together the two hands and two feet have 106 bones. So, your hands and feet have over half of the bones in your entire body.

I have pain in lower part of my back, It becomes very tough for me to sit. I took ultracet for 3 days and now I am taking trabest and pregeb mod, but still the problem still persist. I have also done x-ray of LS spine and thoracic spine but they are also normal. What should I do? What is the problem? Please help me.

Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
This seems to be slip disc problem. X ray will not reveal any problem. You must have to do mri scan to diagnose it. But first use a ls corset and undergo some sessions of physiotherapy. Avoid bending forward, contenues sitting and weight lifting.

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

Try to sleep without pillows-it helps your neck and shoulder muscles to relax properly and maintain a good spine posture.

I am a 68 year old woman advised with arthritis and a knee replacement surgery is suggested in 2 years time. Please advise.

Tkr should be avoided as far as possible. Arthritis doesn't go easily but can be managed to live life smoothly. Ayurveda doesn't kill pain but long run treatment helps in containing swelling of knees, reduce weight and maintaining flexibility of joints along with physiotherapy. I prefer you to learn simple yoga postures kapalbhati' is good for it too. Some herbal ayurveda med may be given for long run. If you agree converse privately please. After tkr also there is no 100% guarantee of normalcy for ever.

Gentle massage over knees with lukewarm herbal pain relieving oils daily for about 15-20 minutes and hot fomentation afterwards will greatly help in subsiding the pain. These procedures would give strength to your knee and reduce the pain and stiffness. Regular oiling the joint will improve the lubrication also. This will greatly help. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking.
