Hi I have de quervian's tenosynovitis on my right hand. It's fine the whole day but it hurts in the night if I don't put on the wrist splint. Is this how it will have to be for the whole life? I have gone to a foctor who gave me some pain killers for a week and suggested complete rest of the hand for a week or so. That is not an option for me. Is there a way out of this other than a surgery?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. De quervain's tenosynovitis is inflammation of sheath of 1st extensor tendons due to which there is pain at the level of styloid process. The treatment depends upon the symptoms you are having, normally ice packs for local application, thumb spica splint for 3-4 weeks not only at night but all throughout, anti-inflammatory medication as per your suitability, local analgesic spray for application but no massage, ultrasonics and laser as physical therapy modalities are useful in many cases. But if it does not get better, then release is better, it is actually a daycare procedure which take about 8-10 minutes to do in ot under local anesthesia, so it is very safe procedure. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Dear lybrate-user ji, Do physiotherapy. If no improvement by 7 days, you need to do nerve conduction velocity with electromyography (NCV and EMG) and MRI cervical spine plain. Is there any pain? How is your strength in left hand?

Hello, back and leg pain may be due to many reasons like sitting position, heavy workout, improper rest, any injury, calcium deficiency etc. You can apply ayurvedic oil like mahanarayan oil gently on back and legs followed by hot fomentation twice a day. C that your bowel is cleared everyday. Start doing yoga and pranayam under guidance.

However I feel no pain during following activities:- walking 4 km daily/seating on chair at office/playing badminton 30 minutes daily/ push-up etc. I want to know the following: 1.

Wear and tear of cartilage even in early 30's is seen quite often nowadays. Exact reason is not know but the possible causes are inflammatory arthritis, chondromalacia, oxidative damage, lifestyle problems, impact sports, injuries etc. Fortunately the cartilage can heal itself to a certain extent. The potential for healing is even better in young people. Walking and swimming is good for cartilage nutrition. Avoid running, jumping, Indian style toilets. There are specific knee exercises which help to strengthen the knee joint and decrease the load on the cartilage. A good physiotherapist can help you with that. Almonds, walnut, cod liver oil, kiwi, pineapple, apricots etc. Are believed to be good for joints. (Basically and food with omega3 fatty acids and good anti oxidant properties are good). Glucosamine supplements are known to improve cartilage health.

While walking pain experiencing may be due to lack of blood circulation. Blood vessels may be studies with color doppler test. Hope the doctors rules out any varicose vein and DVT. Sahacharadi Thailam slightly warm and apply to legs (very gentle massage, down to upward direction) 30 minutes before warm bath daily evening will help. Constipation may be corrected with fibre rich food and more water intake. Vitamine E suppliment also will help. Wearing a stockings on leg may also be tried.

performing anke toe movements or ankle pumps alongwth static quadriceps or setting exercise can help to kp the joint warm and improve the blood circulation around the knee . Following this hot water fomenting or hot packs can help alleviate pain and reduce stiffness by increasing the muscle flexibility in winters.

Hi Back problems are usually weak back muscles due to sitting in chair for prolonged periods. These muscles can be strenghthened by doing specific back strength exercise and also by doing abs building exercises. you can join a Yoga class and tell them about your problem. I am sure the problem can be resolved in a natural and healthy way.

Hello, first of all you should know what is backache and by which factors it caused and aggravated. The usual cause of low back pain is the sedentary lifestyle that we lead these days. There is hardly any movement. walking, running and cycling like activities are also not a part of our daily routine. To add to it, our diet consists more and more of junk food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and high fibre foods are consumed less and less. These daily practices lead to obesity. The increased body weight puts lot of pressure on the spine which has to bear all the extra unwanted weight. The back muscles which are already weak due to lack of exercise and wrong posture are unable to cope with this increased load. This causes pain in the back muscles. Management for Back Pain:-Along with medicines for relieving pain, one needs to identify the cause and correct it. This may require some medicines or some correction in your posture or reducing weight or improving your lifestyle. At the same time, there is a need to work on the local muscle strengthening. Back muscles need to be strengthened so that they can bear the weight of the upper body. For this exercises of the back muscles are very helpful. Regular walking is also very helpful as it is a wholesome exercise of the body, improves blood circulation and helps lose weight. Most importantly if you are overweight then losing weight is an important part of the whole treatment plan .Long term use of painkillers for low back pain is harmful Treatment for back pain:- Homeopathic medicines are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also used for the treatment of chronic back pain.Selection of the exact remedy depends upon the individual symptoms of the person.So share the complete symptom picture for the proper treament. In the mean time take Arnica 200, 3 drops in the morning and Rhus tox. 200, 3 drops at night for 7 days.Take care.
