In painful condition of back don't try to self stretch your muscles. It can be harmful for your back, as you told due to heavy lifting this problem arises so muscles are already in spasm or back strain. Heavy weight lifting with incorrect position of spine puts lots of pressure on back, muscles unable to cope with this increased load and protect themselves from major injury, they got tight or stiff. Firstly you relax your back and pain relief by taking physiotherapy treatment for one week after that back stretching exercises with advice of qualified physio.

Ligament injuries usually take 8-14 months to be healed completely provided you don't disturb the process by excessively using that part of the joint. Use of ankle brace and ample rest should give temporary relief. Ultrasound therapy sittings 3 times in a week over a period of 3-4 months should help with healing of the ligament.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It is a chronic inflammatory joint disease which has a genetic predisposition. Since this is a genetically linked disease hence as of now there is no permanent cure for it, but new medications are available which help in disease control. You need a very active lifestyle with intensive regular physical therapy, take adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation you also need to be in touch of a rheumatologist as it needs a long term supervised care. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

What is bmd in bones? what are side effects of excessive calcium supplements?

MD - Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Dear, (bmd) is bone mineral density which calculates mineral matter per square cm in bones. It also means whether the bones have enough calcium in the matrix. Bones store calcium which is taken from the diet we consume. Normally calcium supplements will not have any side effects but are to be used in caution with people having high calcium levels in their blood or with hypertension. Excessive calcium supplementation is said to be associated with the risks of kidney stones, prostate cancer, constipation, calcium buildup in your blood vessels (calcified plaques), impaired absorption of iron and zinc (due to ionic competition). Calcium metabolism is complex involving the parathyroid gland, the kidneys, bones intestine and is regulated with vitamin d. Maintaining proper calcium homeostasis is the key function of the parathyroid glands and vitamin d. So you need to check calcium supplementation along with vitamin d. Please consult with your vitamin d levels.

Advice... 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).

Asking your doctor if an antiobiotic medicine can be taken is advisable as it can help in reducing the infection and swelling. It can also be taken after the treatment for faster healing.
