Heel pain is a very common foot problem. Try few home remedies for heel pain rest - avoid running or standing for long periods, or walking on hard surfaces. Avoid activities that may stress the heels. Ice - place an ice-pack on the affected area for about 15 minutes. Do not place bare ice directly onto skin. Footwear - proper-fitting shoes that provide good support are crucial. Athletes should be particularly fussy about the shoes they use when practicing or competing - sports shoes need to be replaced at specific intervals (ask your trainer). Foot supports - wedges and heel cups can help relieve symptoms. If these doesn't help please see a physiotherapist who can teach you exercises which stretch the plantar fascia and achilles tendon, as well as strengthening the lower leg muscles, resulting in better stabilization of the ankle and heel. You may also be taught how to apply athletic taping, which gives the bottom of the foot better support. Prevention of heel pain involves reducing the stress on that part of the body. Tips include: barefeet - when on hard ground make sure you are wearing shoes. Bodyweight - if you are overweight there is more stress on the heels when you walk or run. Try to lose weight. Footwear - footwear that has material which can absorb some of the stress placed on the heel may help protect it. Examples include heel pads. Make sure your shoes fit properly and do not have worn down heels or soles. If you notice a link between a particular pair of shoes and heel pain, stop wearing them. Rest - if you are especially susceptible to heel pain, try to spend more time resting and less time on your feet. It is best to discuss this point with a specialized health care professional. Sports - warm up properly before engaging in activities that may place lots of stress on the heels. Make sure you have proper sports shoes for your task. Best wishes.

My shoulders are having pain daily. I had consulted many doctors. But no use. Is there any solution?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are many causes of shoulder pain, but at your age if there is no history of any injury, it can be due to some inflammation, tendinitis etc. Please let me know if there is any associated swelling, skin redness etc? start with gentle anti inflammatory medication which suits you, ice packs 3-4 times in a day at home, intensive physical therapy for around 2 weeks and let me know in 2 weeks time how you are feeling? I would, if possible, also like to see your doctor's prescription papers and x rays or mri, any investigation which you may have done for the problem. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I advise you to take ayurvedic treatment for knee pain if she has not taken earlier. Vata imbalance is the cause of joint pain according to ayurveda. U should take tablet joddaram one tablet three times daily. Tablet mahayograj guggul one tablet three times daily. Apply mahamash oil on knees. U can msg me in my consult if you have any concern.

Hello according to your report your posterior meniscus is tear. You have to need knee braces to maintain knee in extension. Knee braces sote time v laga k hi sona. While walking donot give full weight. In physiotherapy session you take ultrasonic therapy for 12 mints on posteriorly of knee. Ift therapy for 15 mints posteriorly knee. In home you take ice or cold pack for 20 mints on back of knee. Take rest for 4 weeks. Because ligaments tear take 6-8 of healing time so do not bend your knee while sitting. Use western toilet.

From her symptoms it seems like she has developed osteoarthritis (oa) of knee. A heating pad or cold pack can feel really good on achy joints. Use whichever one feels better unless you have an injury, in which case cold is best for the first couple of days. You can apply cold or heat several times a day. Just remember to cover the cold pack with a towel and keep your heating pad at a low setting to avoid burning your skin. Whether you use heat or cold, remove it after 20 to 30 minutes. Physical activity is essential for people with osteoarthritis, whether it means walking around your apartment. Activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities you should avoid until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting try to take the dietary supplements glucosamine for knee pain. Try using a cane to help her walk can take some of the weight off a painful hip or knee. It might even slow the damage from knee osteoarthritis. Please see a physiotherapist for detail assessment and management of knee pain. Best wishes.

BACK PAIN: The risk of lower back injury is higher in people who are obese, who have a poor posture or weak back and abdominal muscles. Almost everyone will experience lower back pain once in their life time. Due to a poor diet and lack of exercise this risk can increase by the day. Relieving lower back pain with Yoga AND Exercises are the best option.

If you can post any reports of x ray of your knee it would be helpful to find out the exact cause for your pain. Meanwhile you can try applying" mahanarayan taila" or" murivenna taila" externally. A gentle massage everyday for 15 min to each knee would be helpful. Please discontinue use if in case pain aggravates or develops rash. You can contact with the detailed report and nature of complaints to get a better personalized solution for your problems.

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try. And to reduce the weight falling on the inflammed surface we suggest patients to use air cushion pillow (also called as doughnut pillow) where in the buttock's weight will not fall exactly on the painful tail bone and that would automatically reduce the pain.
