How to remove muscular dystrophy?
Myopathy is usually a progressive disorder but sometimes it is self arrested. Do physiotherapy to prevent contractures & deformities. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Following may help inj dinabol 25 mg im weekly x 6wks. You will need other supportive medicines also. This disease does not affect the intelligence of the patient use your intelligence. You can work on computer etc. Keep your moral up.

Hello, first of all you should start taking a healthy and balanced diet.

For black spot:- apply aloe vera gel on the black spots twice daily. Take blood purifier r- 60, 15 drops with water twice daily. Revert me after 1 month.

I'm 21 now. From last few days I feel painful back pain. What do I do now for this ?

I'm 21 now. From last few days I feel painful back pain. What do I do now for this ?
Backache in young age is commonly due to 1. Muscle strain resulting from improper posture. 2. Intervertebral disc bulge or prolapse. Follow these to get relief. 1. Take anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen round the clock for pain relief 2. Take rest for 3 to 4 days but avoid total bed rest. 4. Do back strengthening and stretching exercises daily once pain is relieved. 5. Apply analgesic cream over back followed by warm fomentation. 6. Keep pillow behind your knees at bedtime. While sleeping on sides keep pillow between knees. 7. Do not bend and lift weights. 8. If back pain is accompanied with radiating leg pain or tingling, numbness or weakness, consult your doctor immediately don't worry such backaches resolve with proper care as advised above. For further queries consult again.

Before the advent of Arthroscopic surgery, complete ACL tears were treated with plaster cast & physiotherapy with varying degree of success. If your diagnosis is correct, then, I think you should go for arthroscopic reconstruction of ACL.

Hello. You have injured your anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligament along with medial meniscus also. Cruciate and collateral ligament injuries can give rise to knee instability and significant pain also. Weight bearing will be a problem as you are experiencing. Most tears of ACL are complete or near complete (grade 3). Multiple ligament injury usually requires early surgical intervention as your doctor has adviced. The torn ligament is replaced by a tissue graft so that it can regenerate again. This procedure is performed arthroscopically, with minimal incision. Braces are given to prevent knee instability. Anti inflammatory drugs and rehabilitation programme (exercises) will help you regain your stength. But surgery might be unavoidable. Takes around 6 months time for full recovery.

Muscular pain could be due to a lot of reasons but I always tell my patients to get certain tests done like: cbc, esr, crp, serum electrolytes and serum vitamin d levels.

Goodmorning sir I would suggest that you could do a cold water fermentation. What would also help you is too elevate your leg when your sleeping or lying down. If pain persists you could do tens treatment. This will reduce your pain.
