Are Lidocaine patcheseffective in treating lower back pain caused from bulging disc and arthritis?
Dear lybrate user back pain and bulging disc needs to be treated first. Lidocaine patches can reduce pain but its a temporary relief. Root cause needs to be treated.

Hi! today morning I hav cut myself with a iron rod. It was not rusted & my cut is not too serious enough. Should I go for a tetanus injection?

MD
General Physician, Delhi
An anti-tetanus serum is not required in routine injuries. It is only recommended in an intensively crushed and dirty wound, in which case it is given within the first six hours after the injury. A routine tetanus toxoid is also not necessary if one is previously fully immunised. In case one is not, then the toxoid is administered within the first 24 hours after the injury.

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.

One year ago, my ankle of right leg fractured. The doctors did operation and injected the steel wire/rod in my leg to support my ankle. Now my leg is in good condition then I can walk and run now. So my question is that, should I remove that steel wire/rod from my ankle now or after which time?

Hi, the implant can be removed after union of fracture site and not before two years of surgery to avoid unnecessary chances of infection of implant, implant failure etc.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).
