Hi you can relieve short-term joint pain with a few simple techniques at home. 1) protect the joint with further injury. 2) rest the joint, avoiding any activities that cause you pain. 3) ice the joint for about 15 minutes, several times each day. 4) compress the joint using an elastic wrap. 5) elevate the joint above the level of your heart. 6) if you are overweight do exercise like swimming or cycling to reduce weight.

First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket. And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back. You may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * surya namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * in diet vegetable protein of cereal, b complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

I think your aunt require immediate medical attention. First of all her sugar levels must be kept normal either by insulin or any other medicine prescribed by your doctor. Consult an endocrinologist. In case of severe medical attention, homoeo medicines can be taken as helping medicine. Once you r out of your crital position please try to get rid of the trong allopathic mediciness as soon as possible with side by side taking homoeo medicines.
