Hello madam, triple arthrodesis surgery is done for specific conditions of the foot, since no detail is available regarding the indications for your surgery it would be inappropriate for any doctors on this portal to advise on this aspect. It would be better to meet your surgeon and get your doubts cleared. However till such time if pain is your major problem, you can use ultracet which you have been using. Other measures like ice packs, hot fomentation and compression bandage along with local application of analgesic gel can be used to relieve your pain.

Want a Fit Spine: 5 Must Do Exercises

Want a Fit Spine: 5 Must Do Exercises

Spinal cord is a very important part of your body as it renders support to your body.  It also gives your body a good posture and thus maintaining a healthy spine is very essential. An unfit spinal cord can lead to various complicated problems.

The following are 5 must do exercises in order to maintain a healthy spine:

  1. Exercising your core muscles can help you to maintain a fit spine. Your core muscles refer to the muscles of your lower back and your abdominal muscles. These muscles give support to your spine. So exercising them can give you a healthy spine.
  2. Walking regularly can also give you a healthy spine. It is suitable for people of all age groups. Daily walking can help you to recover from various spinal illnesses as well such as spinal stenosis.
  3. Swimming is also a good exercise for maintaing a fit spinal cord. Swimming helps to exercise all back muscles and thus, gives you a healthy spinal cord.
  4. Lying down straight with your face down on an even and firm surface for about twenty minutes can help you to get a healthy spine and also a good body posture.
  5. Cycling can also help you achieve a healthy spine. While cycling, all your back muscles and the muscles of the lower part of your body are engaged in physical activity. If the muscles of your lower back are strong, then it can help you to keep your spine fit.

Other than these exercises, stretching your limbs and other stretching exercises are also beneficial for a healthy spine. But it is highly recommended for you to consult a doctor before doing any exercise in order to be guided in the proper manner and avoid further complications.

My mother is suffering from arthirtis for last 7 years. Some doctors have recommended for total knee replacement. Somce have said it should be cured through medicine. Also is it recommeded to do both legs knee replacement together or one at a time.

MCh Ortho, ATLS (AIIMS), Diploma In Orthopaedics (D. Ortho), MBBS

Knee replacement is a very good option for severe arthritis. No osteo-arthritis is cured with medicines. It can only give temporary relief. Gradually the knee keeps getting worse. Remember that it' s a part of aging. I usually don't do both knee replacements in a single operation. The primary reason is that it takes long time and puts the patient at more risk. Most surgeons nowadays give a gap of 5-7 days between the two operations. The final decision is made by the treating surgeon. If you have any questions regarding knee replacement, you can contact me through private chat.

Plantar fascitis resolves by 1 year in most patients with conservative treatment. In your case it is persistent , you can try following treatment : 1)Decrease your walking/ running. take rest for 7 days and then start your walking gradually. 2) Reduce body weight if you are obese 3) Take pain killers and apply ice pack locally 4) change your shoe supports if they are very old. 5) Do not walk bare foot or exercise on hard surfaces 6) Use night splint in affected foot . 7) Injections into plantar fascia to decrease pain and improve mobility. This is a general outline about treatment strategies.

I have a 10 months old baby girl. Mine was a c-section and I am suffering from a very bad back pain since my delivery. So can you please suggest me wat to do to get rid of this back pain.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It has been seen in a lot of females that they start having pain after deliveries. Actually there is no physiological reason for it, but it is mainly contributed by weak back muscles, lack of physical activity, lack of exposure to sunlight which can lead to vitamin d deficiency besides other reasons. My advise for you initially would be: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication which suits you but if your lactating then it will be wise to ask your pediatrician before taking any medication - 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, traveling on uneven surfaces for long time. Please let me know how you are feeling after 2-3 weeks of initial conservative management, then we will see what further investigations we require for you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Sir i'm 34yr male I suffer from body pains and sleepless how to avoid the back pain.

Diploma In Orthopaedics (D. Ortho)
Orthopedist, Amravati
Hi if you have localized back pain with - no neurological symptoms like numbness, paresthesia, weakness in limbs etc, my advice is: - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a physiotherapist and then at home. - avoid forward bending, lifting heavy weights etc - take an analgesic like diclofenac or something which suits your body for 5-7 days - take muscle relaxant for same time as analgesic to relieve muscle spasm - ice packs at the site of pain, muscle spasm - local analgesic spray can be used but no massage is required let me know in a week time how you are feeling. I will actually ask you to get x ray of involved region of spine (ap & lateral) and send reports across to me so that I can advise further in a better manner. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

It is hard to tell just by the limited description given. I would recommend yourself to be seen by a hand specialist to rule out carpal tunnel syndrome (pressure on the nerve in the wrist), which can be treated initially with therapy but in some cases may require injections or surgical release.

I feel pain in knee when I walk when I run when I sleep I feel so much pain suggest me medicine.
Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury or some other medical conditions including arthritis, patellar tendinitis, acl injury, knee bursitis, torn meniscus, gout and infections. Try some home remedies for your pain- - ice is useful for the control of pain and swelling. It can be applied to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. The swollen knee should be elevated above the level of the heart while icing. -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting jogging aerobics, dancing playing sport specific exercises will help you improve range of motion, strength, and endurance. It is especially important to focus on strengthening and stretching your quadriceps since these muscles are the main stabilizers of your kneecap. Core exercises may also be recommended to strengthen the muscles in your abdomen and lower back. Also maintaining a healthy body weight to avoid overstressing your knees are very important. -a full history of your problem should be taken and your movements assessed by a physiotherapist. Please consult a physiotherapist for the same. Best wishes.
