It's normal to have sore muscles after you work out that is delayed onset muscle soreness. It peaks within about 48 hours, and then it gradually get better when you do the same activity again, your muscles will start to get used to it" you will actually have no soreness or less soreness because now you've strengthened the muscle or connective tissue you ice the sore area right after the activity to cut inflammation. Then use heat later to increase blood flow to the area.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. This type of pain can be due to a nerve getting impinged somewhere usually in cervical spine region. But it can also be due to a shoulder pathology. My advice is: - star physiotherapy with tens as a modality - take an anti-inflammatory medication for 3-5 days - you can also use hot packs at home for an inflammed area normally the pain should improve in 10-14 days time, in case it is increasing then kindly let me know asap. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Rods (nail) from the fractured bones must be removed only after the fractures have united beyond doubt. It must be undertaken at fully equipped centers. Nail (rod) removal at times becomes very difficult. We have good centers in delhi. If you wish it can be arranged in delhi.

Conditional, breastfeeding mothers need to change positions while they are not feeding. They can sleep according to their comfort. However, when they are feeding then they need to lay side se side position some mothers, particularly larger breasted women, find they will need to roll themselves and their baby over to their other side to feed from the second breast, whilst others will find that once they have fed from the lower breast they can just lean forward and feed from the top breast without changing sides. If you do choose the second alternative you will need to make sure that the lower breast is well drained before switching to the upper breast so that blockages in the milk ducts to not occur.
