Dear lybrate-user, as your age is only 19 so I recommend you to go for rice method for your ankle pain in europe all most everywhere they applied that r = rest, I = ice pack (don't apply direct) c = compression, e = elevation (recommended along with compression) as per you question its looking like ankle sprain (sports injury) I personally advised you to visit a good physiotherapist for complete rehabilitation.

Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days bio d3 max 1tab od x10 do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take.

Hello. I just thought that it was very important for me to ask you some helps regarding my friends injury. I have a friend who plays football, but it's been like 6 months without playing football because since then his ankle was injured. He says it started from spraining of his medial ankle and he is not able to walk long distances and run and this has been going on for 6 months now. He consulted the doctors in his country but they said he was alright which I think is not true because if it was normal he would be able to walk long distances.

Hello dear some time there will hair line fracture and it's always in controversy so have a digital x-ray it's so cleverly. And some time but most common ligament injury it's not seen in x-ray and clinical findings are like normal so don't worry about it. Do muscle strength exercise and use some support like bands or tape this pain will reduce.

"PANCHKARMA "--  Alternative to Knee Replacement Surgery
Joint pain can be caused either due to mechanical or physical factors such as over use or physical trauma or injuries to the joints. While there are many remedies and treatment approaches, you can turn to panchkarma for major relief.

Panchakarma is a therapy that has the objective to purify and detoxify the body. The therapy can help one get rid of many chronic diseases and also works as preventive treatment. Ayurveda describes panchkarma as more than a healing system. It is a combination of science and art of appropriate living to achieve longevity. Ayurveda prescribes Panchakarma for cleansing of body toxins, balancing all tridosha’s (Vata, Pitta and Kapha – three bio energies for body constitution).

Panchakarma-knee pain
Abhyangam: A gentle herbal oil massage to body which helps in relaxation and improves blood circulation
Swedan: Ayurvedic steam with ayurvedic herbs which removes the rigid toxins from the body an loosen the muscles
Basti: Medicated enema which aims to balance the vata dosha of body. Also helps in healing of degeneration of joints
Janu Basti: Knee joint is called as the Janu Sandhi in Sanskrit; hence the name Janu Basti .
AYURVEDIC-TREATMENT
Treats Osteoarthritis
Relieves knee pain
Strengthens muscle
Balances Sleshaka Kapha, which regulates the synovial fluid in the joint, which is necessary for proper lubrication of the joint.

Yoga Various forms of yogasan are been taught which helps in restoring the mobility and give strength to the muscles.


Proper care along with Ayurvedic medicines and Panchakarma can surely avoid knee replacement surgery…………

I am a 20 years old male and have backache for last 9 months. What should I do? please sir help me.

I am a 20 years old male and have backache for last 9 months. What should I do? please sir help me.
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. Also 9 months is a long time to be having continuous pain, so it is advisable for you to get few investigations done and follow up after results. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc and with no other associated constitutional symptoms like evening rise in temperature, loss of weight, excessive sweating at night 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.
