Hi, you have back pain since 2 weeks. Actually massage is not indicated initially for any type of back pain. If you have only back pain with no associated leg symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias etc, then you can start with gentle ex under guidance of physical therapist, analgesic as per your requirement and suitability, avoidance of heavy physical activity and some precautions, if it does not improve at end of 3 weeks, then we will have to get you investigated. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

Dear first of all you need a proper diagnosis and that needs detailed evaluation and imaging to confirm the diagnosis. Once it is done we can treat you accordingly. Leg pain needs more specific details as it is vague.

Your daily habits or age may be the root of your knee problems. Some common home care techniques for knee pain that control inflammation and help to break the inflammatory cycle are protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation, glucosamine supplement has also may help, I can prescribe a detailed treatment plan. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Hello Lybrate user. As you mentioned you hav developed neck pain bcoz of prolong sitting .u know the reason behind that also .it is sitting for prolong duration apply pressure to neck muscle specially in forward head posture. Condition you have developed called cervical myalgia. Correction of neck posture is key to success. Sit straight .keep head in eye level .make your work station ergonomically fit .keep your desktop in to eye level. Take breaks every 20 minutes initially .do stretches off load the pressure for those neck muscle. Do apply hot fermentation to painful area. Consult me online for more details. Thanks.

Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated.

Ma'am in rainy and cloudy days temperature decreases. When temperature decreases our muscle's physiological status changes i. E they become stiff. Muscles are sensitive in case of temperature. So, take hot fermentation on knees, it will help you. Get x-ray of knee joint and also get vitamin d and b12 check too. Thank you.

This is a general strain due to excessive walking or standing and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes. One time you can do hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Do ice therapy for the heel pain, get treated with ultrasonic therapy which would directly heal the calcaneal spur (inflammation of the calcaneum bone) which causes the heel pain in majority of the cases. Along with ultrasonic therapy, shortwave diathermy also can be given. Simultaneously it is better to wear mcr chappals (micro cellular rubber) which will help to transfer the weight evenly in the feet so that the weight will be completely felt in the heel area.

Hi I can understand your problem 1) avoid activities that make your symptoms worse 2) apply ice packs 3) start physiotherapy treatment as electrotherapy will reduce pain and inflammation 4) exercise and manual therapy will help in pain free movement.
