My left heel is paining only in the morning after getting up in the morning for few steps even during the day if slept for 2 hour again same problem.

Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Hi pain or soreness in the foot, that eases with time during the day, is generally indicative of plantar fasciitis. The first step you take generally after sitting or standing for a long time or when you get up from the bed is painful. As you start walking the pain clears up. Plantar fascia is a ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes. Other causes of foot pain can be rheumatoid arthritis, faulty arch, ligament tears, fractures, and gout. +wear soft padded footwear. +do stretching of calf muscles +learn strengthening exercise of ankle +take contrast bath at physio clinic. Do reply to discuss detailed treatment plan. Wishing you a good health.

Hello lybrate user, - correct your food habits and lifestyle to come out of your issues. - avoid sour foods, always have freshly prepared food - have a glass of warm water after dinner - take decoction of ginger and jeera twice a day before food - you need some physical exercise or adopt yogasanas - as you have dry cough that might be causing back pain. - have 5-6 tulsi leaves daily twice before food - apply some medicated oils like ksheerabala taila to get strength to the back. Thank you.

It's good that you are thinking of future. First thing will be to reduce your weight. Second thing will be over function tests and USG abdomen to see what damage has occurred due to daily drinking. Do regular exercises. If you are fit, you won't have problems.

I am 22 years old and from past 2 months i'm feeling pain in back. I believe it started because of mattresses. The bed was broken down a bit in the middle so the mattress kinda bend a bit in middle. After one week, I started feeling pain. I stopped using that bed, but the pain remains. Someone told me to sleep on floor and I did that too. But no relaxation. Pain only happens when I sleep, nothing happens in morning or day time. Could it be because of mattresses? what should I do?

Arthroscopy - Things To Remember During and Post Procedure!

Arthroscopy - Things To Remember During and Post Procedure!

Literally translated into two words – arthro (joint) and scopy (to look), arthroscopy refers to a process used to look into a joint. The doctor uses an instrument known as arthroscope which is used to examine a joint in greater detail. What was initially used mainly in diagnosis has gradually grown to include use of instruments through the arthrocope, thereby allowing for some surgical treatments to be done as well.


  1. Diagnosis of joint problems like cartilage tears
  2. Repairing joint problems
  3. Remove foreign bodies in a joint
  4. Track response to treatments
  5. Identify disease progression
  6. Used during an open surgery to:
    • Remove fragments or spurs of tissues
    • Shave off sharp edges
    • Collect fluid or tissue samples
    • Remove swollen tissues
    • Take biopsy
    • Extract swollen joint fragments
    • Remove deposits of calcium or other minerals


  1. Usually done as an outpatient procedure
  2. The procedure in terms of what to expect will be explained to the patient
  3. A sedative is given and the area to be studied is usually shaven and topical antiseptic is applied
  4. Vital signs are monitored
  5. Regional or local anethesia is generally used, where only the joint to be studied is injecte with a local anesthetic.
  6. In cases where the patient is undergoing an open surgery, general anesthesia would be given.
  7. The patient’s position would depend on the joint being studied, usually, is made to lie on the back.
  8. A tourniquet is used to restrict blood flow to the particular joint
  9. A small incision is made in the joint space and the instrument is introduced into the joint space. There is a constant slow flow of saline or another irrigant (to which chlorhexidine might be added) to improve visibility and to remove debris and control infection
  10. Other joint tools are used as required during the procedure either to cut off small fragments of tissue or to remove debris or foreign body.
  11. Once all procedures are done, the joint is thoroughly flushed to clear off any debris.
  12. It is closed with stitches after final inspection
  13. During recovery, crutches or splints may be used depending on the patient’s overall condition
  14. Duration of the procedure depends on what actually was done. An inspection could last about 20 minutes while a procedure could take a couple of hours.

After the procedure:

  1. Complications are very rare, maybe painful operated joint for a couple of days
  2. Rest the joint well for a couple of days
  3. Ice, pain killers, and compression bandage may be required
  4. Return to normal activity and exercises to be followed as dictated by the orthopedist.

My mother is about 50 years old. She is suffering from back pain since 5 years. Please tell me how she will cure?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to have a persistent back pain as a health issue. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - 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 etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

I have back pain which was mild initially but now its getting severe day by day. Please help?

Orthopedist, Chennai
Hi back pain is most commonly due to bad posture or an injury to the structures in the spine. Take bed rest for 2 to 3 days. Avoid bending forwards or squatting or two wheeler as it puts lot of strain on the spine. Take some physiotherapy help, know about good posture and learn back strengthening exercises. It is better to see a spine specialist if pain persists.

My sister, 41, suffers from severe joints deformities as a result of rheumatoid arthritis. Does an alternative treatment to recovery exists in any system of medicine. The allopathic system is all about debilitating drugs and joints replacement surgeries which may give relief for a few years.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. My advise on this will be to remain in touch of your rheumatologist as they are the best people to actually advise on inflammatory joint diseases. 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.

May be you are not taking proper diet as you need high protein & low carbs diet with good exercises. Do back strengthening exercises at least thrice a week. Do some movements & stretches of your back & neck in between long sitting duty hours.
