Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

I m having pain on left side of my lower back, pain usually increases when i do my weightlifting training, it has been 3-4 weeks sice it has started! any solution?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. Pain in lower back region can be due to multiple causes , in your case it can be due to just muscle strain. I will advise to avoid weightlifting for some time and give muscles adequate time to heal. You can use conservative medications and a local analgesic spray for time being. But if your pain does not improve the we will have to look to get you investigated to rule out any discal problems. Do not hesitate to contact me in case of further queries. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

For swelling ice pack is the treatment option but according to environmental it may not suit. So go for active joint movement and elevation. Put 2 pillows at leg to elevate. For pain analgesic and warm foamentation are the treatment option but warm foamentation should be administered to the joint which does not have swelling.

Early morning and night my two hands is painful in the bone of fingers and wrist please help what should I do.

MPTh/MPT, BPTh/BPT

Early morning and night my two hands is painful in the bone of fingers and wrist please help what should I do.
It may be due to initial stage of arthritis. Get a check up done that includes x ray/bone scan, blood tests to check rh factor, uric acid, tsh, calcium and vitamin levels. But don't get it done just like that, consult a doctor to take proper prescription/referral. If, along with pain there is numbness/tingling/burning sensation in hands, there might be nerve compression, so tell your symptoms properly during medical check up. Depending on diagnosis, exact treatment can be started. Physiotherapy can be of great help coz it doesn't include any medications and so no side effects.

I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 12x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. 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.

I understand your feelings. No need to frustrate. Pl tell me if it was lumbar anaesthesia during section? For other pains including lumbar if you have uric acid, ESR, RA , X-ray reports etc - to assess cause. For the time being pl take pure turmeric in warm milk or water. Have light massage by Ayurvedic vatnashak oil e.g. Mahavishgarbh oil by warming it. Pl report in a week with reports for further management. Be stress free by little practice of Pranayam and Meditation.
