You r already taking AKT so no need to follow ESR. It will take time to come and even if remains elevated after the treatment, it is of no significance

My Back pain everyday. I never doing any work. When I walk my Back pain is increase.

My Back pain everyday. I never doing any work. When I walk my Back pain is increase.
The usual cause of low back pain is the sedentary lifestyle that we lead these days. There is hardly any movement. We remain seated most of the time and stand for very short periods of time. Unfortunately 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. This is a worldwide trend and is seen across all ages and cultures. 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. When it comes to the medicinal treatment, homeopathic medicines are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also very helpful in the chronic stage of back pain. It must be said here that homeopathy offers a much better alternative for the permanent cure for low back pain. The focus of the homeopath is not just to relieve the immediate pain but to also eliminate the root cause of the pain. That is precisely why the homeopath asks so many questions which may or may not seem related to your immediate problem. A common cause that is easily overlooked is the presence of stress in an individual. Mental stress can also contribute to low back pain and should be taken into account while taking the details of the patient. This is absolutely necessary if you want a lasting cure You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.

Causes and treatment of knee pain in youngsters

Hello everybody I am Dr. Biren Nadkarni, consulting orthopedic and joint replacment surgeon attached to Holy Family and Sitaram Bhartia Hospitals in New Delhi. Today I am going to talk about knee pain in young people. Knee pain is always discussed in context of old people where it is more seen in lines of arthritis, osteoarthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis. But we get a lot of patients who have the problem of knee pain especially in younger age group. I thought I should devote this session to this knee pain in younger age group. First and foremost problem we see in patients of younger age groups with knee pain is anterior knee pain or patellofemoral knee pain.


what exactly are the causes. If this is your knee joint (displaying with a model of knee joint) and this is how your knee cap behaves every time on bending there is a problem when the kneecap tends to rub on one side and you can see a friction happening here. This is a common problem occurring in young ladies and it's called anterior knee pain and more technically chondromalacia patellae. We normally tell our patients that this is not a precursor of arthritis, it is mainly a inflammatory problem where the under surface of the knee cap gets inflamed and leads to constant pain specially on sitting for long durations it is in fact called a movie theatre sign because people who sit for 2/3 hours and suddenly want to get up they feel knee pain and they are not able to straighten their knee.


The problem is normally addressed by physiotherapy, of course we need to get x-rays and investigations but what they respond to is good physiotherapy and anti inflammatory medications.
And if the problem we face in younger people are ligament injuries especially anterior cruciate ligament injuries. All adolescent people who have had injuries while playing soccer or any other games or while running and in your country specially bike injuries are a major problem which leads to this problem. These people normally come to us with instability, pain when walking for long distances, swellings in the knee and this causes lot of pain.


Anterior cruciate ligament injuries is normally treated by anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction which is a arthroscopic procedure, and it’s a day care procedure or normally a one day admission procedure and the patient is discharged the next day. Similar to anterior cruciate ligament injuries we also have Meniscus injuries. Meniscus are two cushions in the knee joint and they tend to reduce the loads on the joint as the patient puts weight on the joint. So the blue tissue (displaying from the model) you can see is basically a meniscus, there is one on the inside and one on the outside. This is the medial meniscus and this is the lateral meniscus, and if you have a tear here it will also cause a lot of pain. Medial and lateral meniscus tear can occur independently or they can occur with other injuries like Anterior cruciate ligament injuries. These injuries are normally treated by arthroscopic evaluation, repairs or meniscectomy and sometimes we require repair also for them,


I would like to ask my viewers if they have any queries any genuine questions they can see my profile on Lybrate and contact me.

Symptoms of both gout and pseudogout include pain, swelling, and redness. Arthritis can also cause ankle pain. Arthritis is the inflammation of the joints. Multiple types of arthritis can cause pain in the ankles, but osteoarthritis is the most common recommend - consult to nearest homeopath, or may contact me through private conversation in lybrate. Recommend - orthomuv spray sbl - use 2-3 times a day homeocal tablets sbl - 3 tablets, 3 times a day with half cup luke warm water if condition remain same you may contact me.
