BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist,
I have pain in my left hand for over 2 days. What should I do?
Take hot water in a container and emerg your hand in that water. Make sure it is not burning hot. So after 5 to 10 mins, take out your hand. Take hand towel and make a roll of it. Then hold the roll in your left hand and press it. Hold it for 10 sec and release it. Do like this for 10 to 15 reps. Let me know after 1 week. Thank you.

Right arm pain with swelling could be due to 1. Problem in blood supply or lymphatic supply of arm 2. Complex regional pain syndrome. 3. Infection. Get ultrasound and doppler of arm and underarm done to find the cause. If no cause is found out after investigations consult a pain specialist for diagnosis and treatment of complex regional pain syndrome.

See it can be a trigger point in a muscle, if so a physical therapist can cure it with dry needling. But before going to PT i would suggest you to go to a General Physician to get you lump eveluated for cancer, if he feels so he will ask you to get biopsy done. No need to worry but don't ignore it now !!

My father has slip disc problem due to that he is suffering from intense pain in lower back please prescribe.

My father has slip disc problem due to that he is suffering from intense pain in lower back please prescribe.
Hi I would want to know whether an orthopedic surgeon has diagnosed the condition or is it your presumption? Backache and radiation of pain to legs or lower limbs is often called by laymen to be sciatica or due to slipped disc, when there can be a variety of other causes for low back pain syndrome. It is best assessed by a spine or orthopedic surgeon by physical check and supportive xrays/MRI before labelling it as slipped disc which is one of the common causes where intervertebral disc between 2 vertebral bodies degenerates a and protrudes out to compress adjoining nerve, or nerve root, or into spinal canal on cord itself. This often heals by conservative measures if not severe, but fee cases require surgical excision, fusion of joint space and surgery on adjacent soft tissues, foramina of facet joints where nerve emerges impingement of nerve causes acute or chronic pain symptoms. So please consult for above diagnosis and advise, treatment as necessary for your father's condition. As of now, comfortable lying in bed, application of muscle relaxant creams, fomentations, oral anti inflammatory and muscle relaxant tablets are needed. Wearing of spinal brace, avoiding forward bending, twisting of spine are usual precautions advised. Best wishes.

It may be due to disc buldge at l4-l5 level, causing sciatica (rediating pain in legs from lower back). Start physiotherapy. Treatment includes tens, us, and hot pack at lower back. Also some exercises according to your reports. You can send me your reports or just explain your symptoms for correct exercise plan for your problem. Msg me in my inbox with your details for slip disc exercise plan.

First we have to see what's the reason for pain. Then we can advice you treatment. It can be meniscus injury and ligament injury. Get MRI of knee at best centre with 3 tesla machine. This will give details of pathology. Then treatment can be advised.

Stiffness in back & other joints is quite a common condition. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Morning spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take.
