Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Hi! I am a 20 years old guy and I have a psychological problem. I just get scared or frightened so easily by anything. I get scared to talk to girls. I just overthink what she will say or what foolish I will say. I'm an anti social. I don't know why. At every point I get scared. When some one teases me I cannot reply back I get blank nothing else matters, then for several days it will be cracking my mind by thinking about it again and again. I don't get excited like others I don't know why. I always feel like sleepy less excited.

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?
Hi it won't give permanent relief, there will be no pain for three months later the back pain will increase a lot. Consult a physio, it will take time to get better, but the results will be permanent. Hope I answer the question regards.

I am 25 years old. I have a problem with my lower back sometimes it pain. What I should do?

I am 25 years old. I have a problem with my lower back sometimes it pain. What I should do?
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

My mother's finger is paining. What to do?

MD - Acupuncture, Pranic Healing, Diploma in Acupuncture
Acupuncturist,
My mother's finger is paining. What to do?
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. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

To overcome stess I overeat. How can I reduce my weight. Irregular in exercise too.Can anybody help overcome this trichy situation?

M.P.T
Physiotherapist,
Knee pain increase with increase in weight. As joints start degrading after 40. So first focus on reducing knee pain. Start taking regular physiotherapy sessions & go fr knee xray ap &lat view(both knees). Switch yourself to low calorie diet (fat free) more salad&fruit, liquid&semisolid diet. Avoid junk food. Take light breakfast rich in fibers&protein. Oats, poha, upma, vermicelli, veg sandwich you can prefer. Start taking green tea twice 1/2 cup after meal without sugar.

BPTh/BPT, Bachelor of Science
Physiotherapist,
Can you tell me tablet for back pain?
Hello, you need to take calcium supplements and sun bath for backache. You can send me your all investigation reports if it is available. Its probably due to lumbar intervertibral disc prolapse or heavy lifting or due to incorrect posture. Till then follow these advice to reduce pain and stiffness on your back - 1- avoid twisting and forward bending. 2- avoid heavy lifting. 3- avoid squatting position. 4- use western toilet. 5- wear shock absorbing, good quality of shoes while walking. 6. Keep roll of a towel under your knees while sleeping. 7. Perform some gentle exercises and stretching before getting out of your bed. 8. Walk straight with shoulder protracted. I will explain you stiffness and pain reducing exercises in the next session. Wish you a happy and pain free life thanks.

I am 83 years old my right leg foot heel pain from few days what is the problem?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I am 83 years old my right leg foot heel pain from few days what is the problem?
what is the severity of pain? is the pain continous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. 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.

I have leg pains. what is the solution? Please help.

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist,
I have leg pains. what is the solution? Please help.
Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do stretching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you dont get relief see a physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

I am 25 years old n I have lower backpain last 6 months I used all relief gel but still its der.
Relief gels work only as a part to alleviate pain. While they may help reduce your pain for sometime they hardly work on the root cause. Being of 25 years and I am assuming that you dint have any direct injuries to the lower back, you can consult a physiotherapist for relief. The pain has been for more than 6 months as you have mentioned, so I would advice any x-ray which may helo to detect any other causes if present.
