Don't take stress, neck pain in your condition is due to poor posture at time of studies. It is nothing surgical. Proper ergonomic measures will relieve your neck pain and also prevent it. 1) Take rest for 1-2 days. 2) Simple analgesics like paracetamol or Ibuprofen to relieve pain 3) Application of ice pack helps in new onset neck pain. 4) Massage locally with analgesic cream 5) Perform neck stretches and muscle strengthening exercises once pain is decreased. 6) Follow good posture habits to avoid further increase in neck pain. Proper ergonomic measures to be taken while studying: 1. Study in a well lit area with good lighting. 2. Use a chair with proper back support. If needed a small back support pillow can be placed behind. 3. Feet should rest flat on floor. Knees and thighs should be on same level when seated on chair. 4. Elbows and forearm should rest on arm rest of chair. 5. Book should be at comfortable reading distance so that slouching of shoulder or bending of neck is avoided. 6. Every hour between studies take a break and walk, perform back and limb muscle stretches.Focus eyes on distant objects during breaks. Consult your doctor immediately in following cases: 1) Neck pain is persistent and progressive 2) Neck pain associated with tingling or numbness in hands or shoulder. Consult again for further queries.

Easy Ways to Prevent Osteoporosis (Thinning of Bone)

Easy Ways to Prevent Osteoporosis (Thinning of Bone)
3 Winning Ways to Prevent Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease where decreased bone strength increases the risk of a broken bone. It is the most common reason for a broken bone among people who are old. Bones that commonly break include the back bones, the bones of the forearm, and the hip. Until a broken bone occurs there are typically no symptoms.

Three important factors to keep your bones healthy are

1.Adequate amounts of calcium intake
2.Adequate amounts of Vitamin D
3.Regular Exercise

Calcium
Eat low fat dairy products like milk and curd, dark green leafy vegetables, soy products
Consult your doctor if you need calcium supplements

Vitamin D
It improve body's ability to absorb calcium.
We mostly get our Vitamin D from sunlight but check with your doctor if you need any supplements.

Regular Exercise
Exercise will benefit your bones no matter when you start, but you'll gain the most benefits if you start exercising regularly when you're young and continue to exercise throughout your life.
Combination of strength training exercises and weight-bearing exercises will help improve bone strength.
Strength training helps strengthen muscles and bones in your arms and upper spine, and weight-bearing exercises — such as walking, jogging, running, stair climbing, skipping rope etc— affect mainly the bones in your legs, hips and lower spine.

Arthritis - Is Ayurveda The Best Treatment?

Arthritis - Is Ayurveda The Best Treatment?

Arthritis is an inflammatory condition that affects the joints and bones of the patient and creates general problems when it comes to mobility and other such postures, which require some amount of physical stamina and strain. This kind of condition can be of many types. Furthermore, it can affect many different parts of the body right from the knees to the shoulders and the wrists. There are many forms of treatment for this condition, which may be carried out by orthopedic specialists as well as other practitioners of alternative medicine.

Read on to find out why Ayurveda is one of the best ways to deal with this condition.

  1. Ancient science: Ayurveda is an ancient science that is steeped in the logic of ages, and it has been allowed to evolve over numerous centuries, which makes it all the more authentic when it comes to various forms of treatment.
  2. Combination of measures: Ayurveda is not just a field of medicine, but it is primarily known as a life science because it combines a variety of measures that have to do with inside out cleansing of the system. From massages to herbal medicines, yoga postures to lifestyle changes, this form of treatment can help the patient get rid of the condition rather than just treat the symptoms.
  3. Massages: When we use a particular oil or herb to massage our bodies, we are actually imbibing the goodness and richness of those elements, which are ideal for the condition that we are suffering from. This oil that may be derived from cloves or various other elements that are naturally found, can actually seep right into the bones and joints to repair the condition. Mustard oil and camphor are also well known oils for arthritis.
  4. Doshas: Ayurveda depends on the various doshas for a proper form of diagnosis, and arthritis comes under the Data dosha. This typically affects the energy, surrounding the proper functioning of the joints and therefore, one can safely say that this is a well-researched body of science, which is being put to use so as to prescribe medicines and other forms of treatment for that particular dosha.
  5. Exercise: The yogic postures are known to have helped many people and the various asanas that are specifically required for an arthritis patient will help in doing away with the root cause of the disease. These asanas include the less rigorous ones that can build strength and stamina so that the patient is able to lead a more normal and healthy life.
  6. Lifestyle changes: The diet changes that will be prescribed for arthritis-affected patients along with the changes in one’s routine, will help in reaching the root cause of the condition so that he or she may get a better chance at normalcy in the long run. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

I am a 28 years old female and have leg pains for last 2 weeks. What should I do?
Dear hello, the leg pains could be due many causes. Lack of cacium, b-complex, vit. E or even lack of water and or salt in the body. Else it can be due to problem in the back up there. Drink more fluids, take some extra salt in salad/curd. Take some pain killer for a week with some good calcium, b-complex and vit. E tablets for a month. Sleep on a hard mattress and use commode. If of no avail. Consult an ortho. Surgeon.

I have a joint pain often. My calcium count is low. What could be the relation between the two.

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
I have a joint pain often. My calcium count is low. What could be the relation between the two.
* calcium acts as a natural tranquillizer in our bodies. It has a calming effect on our nerves which in turn has a calming effect on our muscles and joints helping to reduce chronic pain. * the greatest function of calcium in the body is its work with phosphorus to build and maintain healthy strong bones. * muscle cramps, joint pain and an overall feeling of discomfort are actually the signs of a calcium deficiency. * apart from getting more calcium from food or supplements, simple lifestyle changes like quitting smoking, and incorporating weight bearing exercises can help to protect your bones and joints. Regards!
