Hi lybrate-user! thanks for seeking help from us please show an orthopedics doctor who may assess the ankle joint for any minimal sprain, its best generally to use elastic support or anklet, do hot fermentation and take a short course of anti inflammatory drugs, avoid sport for 7 days or walking without ankle protection. Rest promotes healing and for partial strains of ligaments around ankle, an elastic protective support for some immobilization is very necessary to avoid a lingering pain afterwards. So see a doctor soon thanks

Hi, you can do the x-rays done (standing AP) and show to orthopaedician near by your area, then only decision can be made further. Try to avoid the food that contains uric acid so that it will be in normal range.

Hi I can understand your problem. 1) apply hot and cold foementation. 2) learn strengthening exercise of quadriceps and hamstring from physiotherapist. 3) do regular streching calf muscles. 4) wear comfortable foot wear. Do share investigation reports if you have.

For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day.

I am 36 years old last few years before I have muscular stiffness in back & when I attend doctor he suggest me to wear corset belt can you suggest me for how many time I will us this since right now I have no pain?

Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually I do not understand why a corset was prescribed to you in first place at all. It will be beneficial if you can actually send me doctor's prescription and your treatment records as an attachment to me so that I can see it. Also if there is no pain right now, you may not use it because there is no advantage especially seeing your age. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hi if you have seen a spinal surgeon. After seeing an mri scan, if he suggested surgery but you r doubtful. Means you can always take second opinion for the same. If both suggest surgery, may be you can choose to go a head or not still. But your age is nor limitation. People at any age can have surgical indication.

Go for ayurveda's panchkarma therapy - we have many option for you - kati basti, localised massgae with herbal oils, localised medicated steam, pottali massage. Continue these procedures for atleast 15 days. Regular oiling of the joint will improve the lubrication also. These procedures will relax your back muscles and give strength to your nerves and muscles of back. Also start some yogic exercises - tadasana, dhanurasan, halasana along with these therapies. This will greatly help. Please avoid pushing / pulling heavy objects, long sittings, long two-wheeler drives. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. Please update with your valuable feedback after 15 days.\

I have leg pain very often. I am 24 years old & I used to play cricket every week but the pain is very severe.

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
I have leg pain very often. I am 24 years old & I used to play cricket every week but the pain is very severe.
Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation. To relieve mild pain: stay off your leg as much as possible apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down please go to a physiotherapist if: you have pain during or after walking you have swelling in both legs your pain gets worse your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment you have painful varicose veins if you feel the pain is from muscle cramp then you need to drink a lot of water because poor fluid intake (dehydration) may predispose to cramps also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps.

Hello sir, my mother is suffering from rheumatoid arthritis from so many years. She is feeling pain at knees and joints like fingers, neck, back etc. I heard that there is no permanent cure for this, is this true? Someone said if we use English medicine chances of heart attacks are more. For osteoarthritis there is knee replacement which will have high success rate, but not in the case of rheumatoid arthritis. Do you have any suggestions about this? What should I do now?
