Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. 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. 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.

My mom have very hard back pain? she is suffering from last 3 years what to do?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist,
Backache is the commonest ailment. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days caldikind plus (mankind) 1 tab odx10days you will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do ask for detailed treatment plan. Don? t ignore, lest it becomes starting point of a major problem.

Hi,

Trigger finger happens when tendons in the finger or thumb become inflamed. Tendons are tough bands of tissue that connect muscles and bones. Together, the tendons and muscles in the hands and arms bend and straighten the fingers and thumbs. The first step for treatment is to rest the finger or thumb. Your doctor may put a splint on the hand to keep the joint from moving. If symptoms continue, he/she may prescribe drugs that fight inflammation, such as ibuprofen. Doctor may also recommend an injection of a steroid into the tendon sheath. If the trigger finger does not get better, your mother may need surgery.

Why to Do a Total Knee Replacement When Partial Knee Replacement Is Enough

M.S. Orthopedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Ahmedabad
Why to Do a Total Knee Replacement When Partial Knee Replacement Is Enough

Partial knee replacement is a surgery in which only one, that is an affected side of the knee is replaced. This is a very helpful surgery for young patients who are very young to undergo a total knee replacement. The surgery has many advantages over total knee replacement surgery.

The surgery is small , the incision is small. The knee cap is not dislocated during surgery. Post operative recovery is smooth. The chances of medical complications are less. The chances of infection are half. The natural proprioception is maintained as the native ACL ligament is preserved.

Swelling in your case is mostly likely dependant oedema as you stand a lot and goes away after sleeping. Need to keep your legs elevated whenever you get rest in between or wear ted stocking.
