Dear lybrate-user, At your age, you might me suffering from adolescent anterior knee pain or patella tracking problem. It may be caused by recent change in shoes, new sports or change in technique whilst playing sports or flat foot. It is not clear from your post whether you are getting any pain from your knee joints or it is just the popping sounds. If you are just getting the sounds, there is no need to worry. If you are getting pain along with sounds it might be helped with strengthening exercises, rest, ice fomentation and probably with sole inserts.

I have in back problem, when I am setting or lifting heavy things. What I do for leave this problem?
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket . And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back . you may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * Gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * Surya Namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * In diet vegetable protein of cereal , B complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

I am 37, had an accident 1 year before. My L2 vertebrae was compress fractured. Now back pain.
As per the ayurvedic treatment protocol, first avoid sour tasted and fermented food. You can gently apply mahanarayan tailam follwed by hot and cold fomentation. To relieve pain you can have trayodashang guggulu. Feel free to ask for more.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Although I have not seen your pictures what exactly do you mean by flexibility but there are certain collagen disorders which can lead to hyper mobility in musculoskeletal system joints, although in some people it can be physiological as well, but it is usually an inherited trait. You actually need to meet a genetics doctor, department is there in good hospitals because they will screen you for certain pathologies and then let you know what could be a cause for it. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. 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 wrist rotation exercise. Inform after 5 days.

Lifting Objects Overhead - How It Causes Pain in Shoulders?

M.Ch - Orthopaedics, Fellowship in Arthroscopy & Sports Medicine, MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Lifting Objects Overhead -  How It Causes Pain in Shoulders?

Shoulder pain while lifting overhead objects might be a result of strenuous activity involving tendons impinging bones of the shoulder. Impingement syndrome is also called swimmer’s syndrome.

What causes it?
It is caused by activities involving tendons and bones of the shoulder, for example strenuous activities, such as swimming, tennis and gym activities involving muscles of the shoulder. Even reaching for overhead objects and painting might aggravate impingement syndrome. If not treated at the right time, the syndrome might become extremely painful as the tendons begin to tear.

Symptoms
General pain in the shoulder is one of the most common symptoms, especially while reaching for overhead objects or using shoulder and arm muscles in general. If it occurs for a prolonged period of time, then it might actually lead to a tendon tearing and leading to a rotator cuff tear. This would overtime lead to decreased ability to use the arm muscles and the bicep muscles might tear as a result of prolonged negligence, despite swimmers syndrome. A doctor would recommend a physical exam and x-ray to rule out possibilities for bone abnormalities and arthritis.

How to prevent and treat it? 
Those who have extreme shoulder pain and have been diagnosed with swimmer’s shoulder are referred to a physiotherapist with whom, regular sessions help restore mobility of the affected areas. The physiotherapist recommends the patient numerous stretching exercises to practise, preferably under a hot shower. In addition to physiotherapy, a doctor will prescribe powerful painkillers which have to be administered orally on a regular basis. 

These oral painkillers, such as ibuprofen have to be taken under the guidance and prescription of a doctor as they will have a host of side effects such as acidity and should be taken post meals. In case of ineffectiveness of orally administered painkillers, cortisone based injections might be given, but it is a double-edged sword as the effectiveness of these injections decrease over time and it might make the muscles and tendons weak. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

May be the screen resolution and lights are giving your eyes discomfort. In general, working long hours on screen/omputer can lead to a condition called computer vision syndrome. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularily if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. Also try to blink your eyes properly while work. Use good tear substitutes like genteal 4 times a day. And anti glare screen for your system. Use eyedrops genteal 3 times a nd zoneph 4 times a day. Get your refraction done and wear spectacles eat green veggies. Carrots. Papayas, mangoes yellow fruits nuts butter. Strain less your eyes.

Serious back pain suggests that there's either intervertebral gap reduction or osteophytes or other reason resulting in compression somewhere. X-ray are needed of Lumbo-sacral spine. Till then keep muscles relaxed by hot water bath and muscle relaxant oils. Pain killers won't be the right choice regularly. Pl inform reports. Till then pl drink pure turmeric in milk twice a day. Nycanthes tree leaves (Harsingar) juice or decoction would be of much relief. After knowing the cause n history, I ll advise you proper treatment for 4 to eight weeks.
