You should give rest to you legs for ate at-least two-three weeks, then you should start training gradually increasing distance. You can also apply Medicrepe bandages to both calf while you are walking/running to expedite healing.

Cervical spondylosis is a disease which is related with the profession, you can start some ayurvedic medicines and some yoga postures which will definitely help your cause and will prevent the recurrence. Start ashwagandharistha 3tsp thrice a day with equal amount of water after meals, with this start bala tail nasal drops with 2-2 drops twice a day, and tab panchamrit loha guggulu 1 tab. Thrice a day, yoga postures like bhujangasana will surely add to your quick recovery.

Dear lybrate-user, calcium consumption is of no use until and unless your body absorbs and utilises it. For now you need to use natural foodstuffs that is rich in calcium and avoid sofdrinks and take a medicine Rhus tox 6 twice in evening at 2 hrs gap for 5 days and consult back with blood biochemistry reports and vit D3 test.

Back pain can happen due to numerous reasons. It can happen due to muscle spasm, disc prolapse, degenerative disc disease. However, most common cause of back pain is muscle spasm or due to wrong posture. You can try doing hot fomentation and some basic exercises like cat and camel, back stretch, hams stretch and bhujangasana and see if it helps you. I would suggest you to visit an ortho or a physiotherapist nearby if the above said exercises doesn't help in reducing pain. Physiotherapy treatment might help you in getting relief and it doesn't have any side effects too.

Nowadays back pain is a very common complaint in young adults. So donot worry. It can be due to various reasons any injury, muscle strain eg-sudden twist while lifting object, bad posture, overuse of muscle or any internal disease like spondylitis, infection etc. Many of the problem occurs for which we are not aware. After looking at your pain I am recommending you some precautions and treatment to get rid from this pain. Precautions: 1. Avoid forward bending, if required then bend your knees first and then bend forward. 2. Avoid weight lifting. 3. Sit in chairs or car seats with proper back support. 4. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back like sidelying. 5. Get enough vit d from sun as vit d keep bones strong including spine, 6. Drink plenty of water to enhance the inter vertebral disks 7. Avoid standing in the one position for a long time. 8. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back. Physio care: I would recommend you for i-care treatment that is especially for back or neck pain. Rest required but it doesn't mean a complete bed rest. Do not over exert your body. Work take rest and then work so that you do not feel tired and started paining. Treatment- 1. Apply ice or heat which ever suits you directly to the area of low back pain will decrease swelling and inflammation, and ease your discomfort. Apply it for 10 to 15 minutes only. 2. Relaxing for 5 minutes after ice or heat treatment. Massage - ask someone to massage your painful area using fingers or thumb. Massage using kneading technique. Slightly press the thumb and start rotating as it helps to induce relaxation, relieve pain, and reduce levels of stress chemicals, such as cortisol and noradrenaline. It will give you pain relief for time being. 3. After massage again relax for 5 min and apply any pain relieving ointment eg - volini or oraflame gel etc. Make sure not to do massage with the gel, it should not penetrate the body. Just a topical application of gel should be done. 4. Again relax your body for 5 minutes and perform some normal back extension and hamstring stretching exercises to get relief from your pain. Other exercises that can be done in pain are: 1. Straight leg raising 2. Knee to chest. 3. Hamstring stretch. 4. Back extensors stretches and strengthening. 5. Gluteal stretch. 6. Prone on elbow. All the above can be done for 10-15 times with the hold (stretch) time of 5 -6 secs while performing exercises if pain occurs then would recommend you to stop doing exercise. Massage or slightly rub the painful area and consult your near by physio to diagnose the actual cause of the pain as he/she can guide you proper exercise plan which will be beneficial for you after checking grade of your back pain. If you did not understand or have any doubt regarding the i-care plan, please inform or send me an email at swatisagar121@gmail. Com.

your son being in sports has bright chances in coming out of this condition called gout. There are excellent medicines in homeopathy, and ayurveda and bach flower medicines. He needs to avoid seeds in any form, also tea and pl encourage him to have lemon juice. Give him corn silk tea. These will help amazingly.
