Hi good morning, your back pain is not because of bike driving, it is because of your bag sitting position while driving bike, especially on speed breakers& gutters on roads, try to sit straight you won't get pain once again, but now for your acute pain you have to take anti inflammatory & muscle relaxents for atleast 5 days, thank u.

Please do a MRI of the affected area If there is anatomical defect then this needs a long time treatment. Please undergo treatment for full course and maintain the instructions as provided by your Doctor. Take Mag phos 6x thrice daily 4 tabs till the time reports arrive.

hello, Shooting pain at the back of the knee may be arising from the spine. You can first of all take rest and can take some analgesic (pain-killer) along with a muscle relaxant.

You need to do hamstring streching before playing and also to relieve from this pain. Your glutious muscle should also be improved.

Postural Correction- Sit Tall, Walk Tall. Extension Exercises x 15 times x twice daily. Apply Hot Fomentation twice daily. Avoid bending in front.

I met with an accident, I got hurt on my left side ribs, I took x ray, doctor said there is no fracture and advised me Flexon Mr. tab daily two, but even after 2 weeks, pain has not reduced, doctor says it will take 4 weeks to cure, Is that correct? Is it required to go to another doctor? Can you please advise any other medicine.

Your doctor is absolutely right. It can take 1 month or even more to get better. If your pain is still persisting, you need to take absolute rest. Medicines can only control the pain temporarily. Rest is the most important factor in healing.

Why You Should Never Ignore If Your Child Complains Of Back Pain?

Why You Should Never Ignore If Your Child Complains Of Back Pain?

Over the years of adulthood, a combination of bad posture along with wear and tear means that a significant amount of the adult population is affected by back pain. But is this normal for a child, as well? Well, it most cases, the answer is a vehement no.

Children and adolescents are people who have a greater degree of flexibility than adults. What this means is that they do not complain of back pain as much as adults do. So when should a parent be worried if their child complains of acute back pain?

If a child is very active, then this could be a cause for concern when it comes to injury to the back. Due to the rough and tumble nature of the sort of activity that is engaged in by children, stress fractures are possibilities. These injuries are generally explained by overuse. What a parent needs to keep an eye out for is if the child complains of pain when certain actions are performed. So, back pain which occurs, say, during butterfly stroke when the child swims could mean that the child has a case of spondylolysis or a stress fracture.

If the back pain is so bad that the sleep of the child is disturbed and he or she wakes up on account of it, the parent should take this seriously. The reason for this is that the pain could be caused by a tumour to the spine or an infection. A possibility apart from these two could also be arthritis.

A parent should also be worried when the back pain is not the only thing that the child complains of. That is, if there are other things such as a fever and weakness, as well as pain extending down either or both legs, it could be a sign that the trouble is more than just superficial. In a similar way, when there is trouble walking or there are problems related to the functioning of either the bowel or the bladder, a doctor is to be consulted.

One of the most common cases of back pain in children happens to be Scheuermann’s disease, which is also known as Scheuermann’s kyphosis. What this means is that the spine is rounded in the middle. While this causes pain, it is usually not debilitating enough to hinder normal movement. But, after all, who would want their child to go untreated and suffer as a result? In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

If you still have pain in the left leg where you had fracture it is better to walk using walking aid. However for safer reasons it is better to keep a tripod or tetrapod stick (stick with 3 legs or stick with four legs) You definitely have to take rest only then fracture heals quickly otherwise the broken fracture segments gets prone for movements and obviously the healing would be prolonged.
