I am 18 yrs old I am having backpain, consulted to doctors but nothing happened. What should I do now?

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

Morning stiffness in back & other joints is quite a common condition. 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. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take.

The lower end of the vertebral column is inflamed and that bone is called coccyx bone and the condition is called Coccydynia. The conservative management would be to keep ice in that inflamed area during one time in a day and also to sit in a hot water bowl where the penetration of the heat would help to reduce the inflammation. 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.

Intense muscle soreness after weight lifting. Lasting for a week now. What should i do?

Erasmus Mundus Master in Adapted Physical Activity, MPT, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Chennai
You need to improve the tone of the muscles in a rhythmical manner. If you do that with proper diet restriction nothing will happen to you. Body pain is there after gym activity due to tiredness and you need to consume good protein and iron diet in your body which will help you to break the fatigue and body pain. You have to reduce the weight by walking minimum 3-4 kms per day. Slowly reduce the weight and slowly avoid adding salt in the diet which will help you to prevent water retention in the body. Excess salt in general leads to water in the body which might be the reason for you legs to pain as the leg will automatically become oedematous.

I develop Pain in my shin bone When I Started Running. How to avoid shin pain. Please advise me
Yes first of all you should know what has happened to you ,here we go- The excessive force causes the muscles to swell and increases the pressure against the bone, leading to pain and inflammation. Shin splints can happen to  Athletes with muscle weakness of the triceps surae are more prone to muscle fatigue, leading to altered running mechanics, and strain on the tibia. Inflexibility and imbalance of the hamstring and quadriceps. Running on a hard or uneven surface and bad running shoes (like a poor shock absorbing capacity) Biomechanical abnormalities as foot arch abnormalities, hyperpronation of the foot, unequal leg length.  2-6 weeks of rest.  The cryotherapy can be used after exercise for a period of 20 minutes Go to a good Physiotherapist. Ask for ultrasound, he will give you srengthening Exs of calf ,solus and dorsiflexor of foot ,core stability with strong abdominal, gluteal, and hip muscles can improve running mechanics and prevent lower-extremity overuse injuries. Taping the arch of the foot or the affected leg muscles Soleus ,Calf and foot muscle stretches Single-leg exercises including squats, reaching exercises, or heel raises Modified take off and landing techniques for jumping athletes Modified leg and foot control during walking and running New footwear or orthotics or shoe inserts that support the arch of the foot. For foot flatten out too much, or if your foot muscles are weak. Can this Injury or Condition be Prevented? Yes! Get an annual functional fitness examination, including strength, flexibility, mobility, and sport-specific analyses. Perform dynamic stretches before exercising and static stretches after exercise Perform strength and endurance exercises for the foot, hip, and pelvic musclesPerform balance exercises on each leg Follow a recommended training program when starting or progressing your exercise program.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medications which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we might have to get some investigations like dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail

I did TAH one year back. Now I'm suffering with back pain is there any reason for that. What should I do to recover.

I did TAH one year back. Now I'm suffering with back pain is there any reason for that. What should I do to recover.
Hi. Hysterectomy and back pain doesn't overlap. It's not the reason. Initially try physiotherapy and a muscle relaxant tablet (might be some spasm to muscle) if it doesn't give pain relief go for an MRI lumbar spine and whole spine screening. It will indicate if there is some disc bulge that causing pain. Thank you.

Hi Thanks for your query. I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. If there is swelling and prominence of veins, I advise you to get an opinion from a vascular surgeon or a general surgeon to rule out vascular cause of swelling. If that' s ok then we can discuss further. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

Facts You Should Know About Osteoarthritis Of Knee Joint!

MS - Orthopaedics, MD - Physician

Facts You Should Know About Osteoarthritis Of Knee Joint!

In medical terms, Osteoarthritis is referred to a disease of the joints. It mostly affects the cartilage or the slippery tissue, which helps to cover the ends of bones in a joint. A proper cartilage helps in gliding of the bones one over the other. In osteoarthritis, the cartilage’s top layer gets damaged or breaks down. This leads to rubbing of the bones and swelling, pain or loss of motion. As the time passes by, the joint may lose its shape. There is also a possibility of developing bone spurs from the edges of the joint. This causes pain and damage.

People suffering from osteoarthritis often complain of joint pain and experience reduced motion. Unlike the other kinds of arthritis, this affects only the joints and does not interfere with the working of internal organs. It is the most common form of arthritis. It mainly occurs in older people. In younger ones, osteoarthritis may occur due to joint injuries.

What Causes Osteoarthritis?
It is caused due to ageing. But there are certain other risk factors that have to be kept in mind. This include:

  1. Excess body weight or obesity
  2. Old age
  3. Joint injury
  4. Improper formation of joints
  5. Defective genes
  6. Stress on the joints


What are the symptoms?
It can develop in any joint in the body. But it mainly occurs in the hands, knees, hips, and spine. The symptoms that indicate towards its occurrence are as follows:

  1. Stiffness in a joint, especially as you get out of bed or sit for a long period of time.
  2. Swelling or tenderness in the joints.
  3. A crunching feeling.
  4. Sound of bone rubbing.

Diagnosis
It cannot be diagnosed by a single test. It takes several methods to detect its symptoms. tHerefore, a combination of tests are conducted, including physical examination, X-rays, blood tests or examination of the fluid in the joints.

How Is It Treated?
It requires a combination of treatments to meet a patient's needs, as per his or her lifestyle, and health. The treatment has four main goals:

  1. To improve function of the joints
  2. Maintain a healthy body weight
  3. It is important to control the pain
  4. Efforts to achieve a healthy lifestyle

The treatment plan or sketch will involve focus on the following things:

  1. Exercise
  2. Weight control
  3. Rest and joint care
  4. Techniques to get relief from pain without the use of drugs
  5. Medications
  6. Therapies
  7. Surgery

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
