Dear, Frozen shoulder gives acute pain symptoms at night. There's no medicine for improving the shoulder however pain killers may give temporary relief but that will keep the shoulder frozen only. I would recommend her to take physiotherapy especially shoulder mobilisation exercises which a therapist only can perform and it can take from 3 months to 6 months of physiotherapy for the condition to be fully cured (depends on her shoulder condition and medical history) For other joints please get some blood tests done (like rheumatoid factor, Utica acid, ESR and CRP etc) to check out the kind of arthritis and for that you need to consult an orthopaedic.

Since the problem is now for 20 days, you really need to go to a Physio or an orthopedician. It can be due various reasons and evaluation is must before prescribing any exercises. I am sure it can be cured with prescribed exercises and lifestyle changes. Though it do not seem very serious but never ever underestimate Low back ache. Cure is very important before it becomes chronic. I hope I helped you. Thank You!

I understand your pain. Take some alum and mix well in hot water. Immerse your foot and take hot fermentation for 15 min thrice a day. When your feet is in water do some exercises like making circle/alphabet, Fisting all toes, then individual toe movements. This will give you relief from your pain and discomfort. You can also take laser and ift at your nearby physiotherapy center. For any doubt please contact. Make a habit not to stand for long time in one position or do not stand bare foot. Take a break for 4-5 min and relax your ankle/ foot muscles. Make a habit of doing calf stretching. This will maintain your blood flow in legs and will decrease the level of pain and gives you recovery very soon. Try to avoid wearing heels. Direct pressure on foot should be avoided. Best regards.

Are Lidocaine patches effective in treating lower back pain caused from bulging disc and arthritis?

Are Lidocaine patches effective in treating lower back pain caused from bulging disc and arthritis?
Hi these patches are just type of lain relivers. It won't have any effect on the disc bulge and it won't get treated. These are temporary measures for your pain. If the disc bulge is severe and compressing on nerve which will then cause pain and weakness in legs then you need to get treated with surgery or start with physiotherapy first.

Ayurvedic Treatment For Knee Pain!

Ayurvedic Treatment For Knee Pain!

Ayurveda is a very old system of medicine, which originated in India. Using herbs found in nature to cure various illnesses, knee pain can also be permanently cured with this method indigenous to India. It reduces knee pain caused by various illnesses including arthritis, inflammation of the cartilage and wearing of the patella among others.

Here are some common Ayurvedic remedies, which help reduce knee pain:

  1. Alfalfa: Alfalfa is medically known as Medicago Sativa. Alfalfa is excellent for making sure that your joint pain reduces, when taken in liquid form four times a day.
  2. Ashwagandha: Ashwagandha is medically known as Withania Somnifera. In the West, Ashwagandha is popularly known as Winter Cherry. Also, it has a lot of therapeutic properties, which include reducing joint pains.
  3. Banyan: The Banyan tree's medical name is Ficus Benghalensis. It has a sap very similar to the form of rubber known as latex is derived from the Banyan tree. The Banyan tree's sap is externally applied over the joints and the pain usually disappears after a few regular applications. 
  4. Bishop's weed: The medical name for Bishop's weed is Trachyspermum Ammi. The oil extracted from this herb is usually applied to the knees to reduce the intensity of such knee pains.
  5. Celery: The medical name for celery is Apium Graveolens. Celery is not only an effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and associated pains in the knees, but it is also helpful in treating gout. It is usually agreed upon that this particular treatment is usually long lasting because of its alkaline nature.
  6. Dandelion: Dandelion's biological name is Taraxacum Officinale. It is rich in magnesium and is crucial for the correct mineralization of the bones. This mineralization allows the bones to become stronger and also prevents knee pain.
  7. Garlic: The medical name for garlic is allium sativum. Five to six cloves eaten everyday has proved to reduce knee pains.
  8. Ginger: Ginger is biologically called Zingiber Officinale. These can be easily included in your diet and go a long way in curbing knee pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Lybrate-user, with tsh at 4.4 mu/l most of the symptoms of hypothyroidism should be in check. If still she has troublesome symptoms as mentioned, then the dose may have to be increased by another 12.5 mcg, so that there is better control achieved. There are no special exercises, best is to walk daily for 1 hour. As regards food, certain foods to be avoided are soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid maida. Thanks.

Hi rupen der If you didn't counter any problems in 2 years since injury, may be it was partial tear or minimal one which may have healed without residual laxity of knee to give symptoms of weakened knee during movements. So nothing to fear now. No, you won't need arthroscope examination at all, ad of now, neither future need for any knee replacement. Those who had to undergo TKR may have had complete rupture of ACL with association of meniscal injuries leafing to post traumatic osteoarthritis or degeneration of knee joint heralding replacement. Thanks.
