I am taking VAATFREE capsules twice a day for knee and heel pain. Is VAATFREE a pain killer or steriod?

I am taking VAATFREE capsules twice a day for knee and heel pain.
Is VAATFREE a pain killer or steriod?
Vaatfree is a completely herbal preparation which aids in Vaata shaman, thus pain killer action. it does not contain any added steroids, thus is completely harmless.

I suggest you follow the below for your condition: Rest. Ceasing activity for a few days allows injured tissue and even nerve roots to begin to heal, which in turn will help relieve lower back pain. However, more than a few days of rest can lead to a weakening of the muscles, and weak muscles have to struggle to adequately support the spine. Patients who do not regularly exercise to build strength and flexibility are more likely to experience recurrent or prolonged lower back pain. Heat and Ice Packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately. Also do a x-ray of the affected area. Also take Mag phos 12x for pain one dose when required. For further queries get back to me.

Hello, I am male 28 years old. I have no bone injury history and have recently started gym and running on treadmill. I rum for around 25 mins and 4KM on average. I have started feeling leg pain from some time. My symptoms are similar to popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) or chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS) which I found after some online search. More like CECS but I am not sure. I recently had a full body checkup including blood, urine and stool test and nothing major came. My physician advised me to take Serum D13 or D3 vitamin test or something. Can you advise?

Hello,
I am male 28 years old.
I have no bone injury history and have recently started gym and running on treadmill. ...
Hello lybrate-user, chronic exertional syndrome is quite rare and represents a build up in the pressures of the compartment of the muscles. Easy way to diagnose it is to measure the pressure in the compartment of muscles before and after the exercises. Cecs would affect a complete muscle compartment and cause pain in the entire extent of the muscle especially at the back of leg or the calf. Another common condition after sudden increase in activity is a stress fracture which would cause a localized pain in the skin rather than entire region and you would be able to point out a single point where you feel the pain. This would require x rays and further assessment. There are many differentials for the diagnosis and all the conditions that cause leg pain cannot be explained here. I would suggest you to consult a qualified orthopaedic surgeon for a detailed clinical assessment and further management quickly when the problems can be managed by simple methods rather than later when you require extensive management. Hope this helps.

Hi = Relax and stay positive. = Increase fluid intake. = Eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = Do streching 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 consult physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

Hello there! My father is having severe lower back pain since Tuesday morning. He's unable to move at all. All he can do is go washroom that too with mom's help. This happened few months back too. He used Homeopathy meds and got better. He's using the meds since yesterday and there's no improvement. What can be done to give him relief? Any food to give enough nourishment to the bones? Is there any permanent cure to this lower back pain? Please help out.

Severe lower back pain and restricted mobile can be because of muscles spasm. Apply lukewarm sesame oil on lower back and take hot water bag thrice a day. He should take complete bed rest for 4 to 5 days. He should restrict forward bending and carrying heavy weights. He can eat calcium and protein rich food for example egg whites ; Moong in any form; guava; nachani; milk etc. He should food items which are heavy to digest. If no relief in 1 or 2 days then consult your doctor for X ray. Ayurvedic medicines ; basti ; Katibasti will reduce the pain and prevent recurrence.

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly and spine block injection is effective for six months.

I have some pain in my back. What I do to get relief from this. I have a good physique at all.

I have some pain in my back. What I do to get relief from this. I have a good physique at all.
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket. And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back. You may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * surya namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * in diet vegetable protein of cereal, b complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

I'm , age 21, I had two days ago sweet and then pepsi without having anything from pm (at 5pm only I felt hungry) but then I developed a pain in my back, then in my chest and then the pain became unbearable. I thought it was due to gas formation but two days have already gone but after taking medicine like famocid and digiene (for gas problems) I still develop the pain in my back and now in my throat. After I drink water one or two timesi get hiccups and maybe one time I fart. Then after 10 minutes the pain again slowly develops. What should I do? please help me. My exams are near.

Shoulder pain can be a result of injury or disease of the shoulder joint. Injury can affect any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. Injury can also affect the ligaments, cartilage, menisci and bones of the joint. Some minor shoulder pain can be treated at home. Icing the shoulder for 15 to 20 minutes, three or four times a day for two to three days can help reduce pain. Use an ice bag or wrap ice in a towel (putting ice directly on your skin can cause frostbite). Rest the shoulder and avoid any movements that might cause pain. Simple shoulder exercises can help to stretch and strengthen muscles and rotator cuff tendons. -sleep with two pillows: one pillow is for your head, as usual, the other is to go between your elbow and your body (on your affected side) so that your arm is held slightly away from your body. If you usually sleep on the side where you have no pain, put the pillow in front of you and hug it, to help keep your arm away from your body. Best wishes.

Seems neuropathy has taken over. You have to be under proper medical care and switching med. Immediately will not help. However keeping age factor and complications in mind we may suggest supporting ayd herbs those may be taken parallel to present regime. If it responds and gives relief in about 1. 5 to 2 months, we make advise further. For advise please furnish present lab reports and other complications if any.
