Kindly show me a photograph & digital x rays of affected part. 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. Do hot fomantation. Ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days. Bio d3 max 1tab od x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do reply back for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Dear, you must take rest for few days from running and then start it slowly and gradually increase the distance. Time and speed. And do hot fomentation to the legs. Despite this if you get pain. You might be having anterior compartment syndrome. For which you will need to consult an ortho. Surgeon. Take care.

Achilles tendonitis or heel pain or plantar fasciitis is a very common condition. During night our feet are in a downward position which causes their stiffness. When we try to straighten them in the morning, they are stretched and hence the pain. You can start by doing feet stretching exercises in the morning before getting down from the bed and do ice packs.

For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Is it ok to do push ups, pull ups and planks with mild buldging intervertebral disc(L4-L5, L5-S1) on MRI with back and flank pain?

Is the disc bulging acute? Any exercises that gives you back pain should be stopped immediately. Start with static abdominal exercises and bridging which doesn't stress your back. Slowly progress with experts advice.

Mam, the way you have explained your symptoms it looks like you are probably suffering from osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis has no relation with food and whatever damage has happened cant be regained but further damage can be prevented. In general take food rich in calcium and go out in sun for atleast half an hour for vitamin d. Do isometric exercises for quadriceps. Consult a doctor with your knee xrays as the life style modification and treatment depends on severity of osteoarthritis.

Acupuncturist,
Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Press the point on the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from toe in the foot 20 times by pressing and releasing with a blunt edge of a pen. Further rotate your foot clockwise and anticlockwise 10 times. Massage your leg with both hands. Consult after 5 days.

My mother is 52 years old having weight of around 95 kgs. She is having pain in her left leg on knee. She use to exercise a lot before. Bt having no relief she discontinued. Now she use to go fr walk in the morning for around an hour. And she does all her home work. Making food, cleaning the house. We are also consulting our family doctor. But there is no such relief in her legs. And now there is a slight pain in her right leg also. So please guide me a good treatment.

95 kg is lot of weight. How tall is she? by average height of indian women, she is already 30kg overweight at least. She needs to lose weight. That will prevent worsening of her knee pain. You may consult bariatric surgeon for the same.
