Please sir tell me side effect of c1 surgery in spinal code I have fracture in c1 its degeneration.

M.Ch - Neuro Surgery, MBBS
Neurosurgeon, Mumbai
Hello sorry to hear this. It seems you have a fracture in the c1 and some degenerative changes because of that. The most common type of c1 fracture is the jefferson's fracture. Most of these types of fractures can be managed without surgery. There are a few rare subtypes and associated injuries which may necessitate a surgery. Will you please upload me the ct, mri reports so that I can determine the exact type of your injury and then will be able to tell you if you need any surgery or it can be managed without surgery. Best wishes.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your knee pain could be due to certain reasons but common ones are chondromalacia, pain due to knee instability, inflammation etc. If there is no history of any injury, and no s/s of inflammation or infection like swelling, skin redness or local warmth on touching, then I will like to advise you for conservative management initially in form of: - intensive physical therapy with focus on strengthening of quadriceps and stretching of other group of muscles - gentle anti inflammatory medications like tab etoshine or tab paracetamol can be taken in small doses for 5-7 days - adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation as per requirement - ice packs at home for 3-4 times in a day and see how it goes for around 2 weeks time. If your condition does not improve, then we will have to get certain investigations done. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Hello Lybrate user. U haven't mentioned about your working. Nature of job, hour required for job. How is your posture .most of time faulty posture is responsible for pain, muscle spasm and leads to taut band, locally trigger point's to muscle .pain killers only helps temporary. Awareness of faulty posture, correction of faulty posture, stretching exercise n strengthening exercise are key to manage this kind of pain. Meanwhile start doing hot fermentation to locally painful areas. Consult me personally online for whole guidelines including posture n exercises.

Hello lybrate user, back pain that is associated with day time sedentary jobs like computer professional s are associated with paraspinal muscle spasms. The best way to tackle this sort of pain is to do well spaced stretching exercises of the back, back extension exercises, using hot water bags to provide relief and avoiding stooping posture while sitting. Posture also plays a very important part in back pain, always maintain a straight posture while sitting. While getting up from the bed try to first go on your left or right side of the body and get up side ways. Avoid cruntches or sit-ups: they may increase the pressure on your back and may predispose to slip disc. Always maintain a healthy lifestyle in terms of regular brisk walking, meditation, eating healthy. P. S: try to avoid pain killers (analgesics) as much as possible as many are associated with side effects that you may not be aware of. Stay healthy. Stay happy god bless you.

Right elbow fractured. Screw implemented 3 screw. One taken out. Two are still in. Extension and flexion not 100%. Its approx 20% less. Done 4 month regular physiotherapy and proposed exercise. Need solution. Want 100% movement. please suggest)

Dear lybrate-user, elbow stiffness is a common problem following elbow surgeries. Sometimes the implant could be blocking movements. However most of the times stiffness is due to scar tissue formation in and around the joint, or sometimes due to excessive new bone formation (myositis ossificans). After permission from your primary surgeon, get a consultation from a sports or arthroscopy surgeon. Sports surgeons would be able to assess if the movements can be improved non-surgically or through key-hole surgery/ arthroscopy. Subsequently with continuation of exercises you would be able to maintain near complete movements in your elbow. Hope that helps. Let me know if I could be of further help.

I am 26 year old and back pain is there from last two years. Leg pain is there from last two months. Weakness is there.

Backache is the commonest ailment. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days caldikind plus (mankind) 1 tab odx10days you will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do ask for detailed treatment plan. Don? t ignore, lest it becomes starting point of a major problem.

Prolong sitting and bad posture leads to tightening of some very important muscle groups. You need to do some stretching exercises to stretch the tight muscles. Consult a physiotherapist who can assess your condition and can prescribe tailor made exercises for you. Start doing yoga regularly once the pain subsides.

Now days I can not sit for bajrashana even I find difficulty while using Indian system toilet.in my right leg.

Now days I can not sit for bajrashana even I find difficulty while using Indian system toilet.in my right leg.
Sitting in bajrashan and in Indian style toilets is not good for your knees. It demands very deep flexion in the knees. This in turn causes immense strain on your knee cartilage. In some people the cartilage is not healthy enough to sustain this amount of force and gets further damaged. Repeated injury will only make your knees prone to early arthritis. Gentle knee exercises and walking is good for you.
