Sir, mother is 59 years old and suffering with pain on the left leg over thigh. What is the problem and the treatment of it?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It is difficult to exactly say what could be the reason for such kind of pain, but if it is localized on outer aspect with some paresthesia and numbness, it can be meralgia. Other causes could be radiation of pain from your lower back region especially if there is a history of chronic low back ache. So please elaborate your complaints as to a detailed discussion of your back pain which means duration of pain and mode of onset. I would also like to ask you if it is associated with any leg pain or any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias (electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hello Lybrate user, as you mentioned that your feeling heaviness & discomfort at upper part of right knee. I would suggest if ther any pain, swelling,tenderness (pain while palpate), movements of knee reduced and painful, not capable of weight bearing. Do visit a physiotherapist for further ruling out condition. If ther no above situation. Do apply ice packs for 10-15 mins, put towel roll under your affected knee and try to press down towel activating quadriceps muscle n you will feel muscle is contracting ,hold this pressing down for 15 sec, 15 repetition. Thanks & regards.

Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are many causes of pain in lower back region. It can be due to faulty posture, related to weak muscles, issues with intervertebral disc, narrowing of spinal canal, any bony instability besides many other, so accurate diagnosis is the key to proper management of the condition. You will have to elaborate your problem as to a detailed discussion of your back pain which means duration of pain and mode of onset. I would also like to ask you if it is associated with any leg pain or any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias (electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. Please also tell me about any associated symptoms like fever, weight loss etc. What medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. 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 in a private consultation.

Hello. Headache and back pain could be inter-related. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). (Excessive sitting or standing is to be avoided as well don’t carry much weight on shoulders). Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. Management: -Stretching or activities that place additional strain on the back are discouraged. -Sleeping with a pillow between the knees while lying on one side may increase comfort. -Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees would also relieves pain and no pillow under your head. -Some people seem to benefit from the use of ice or heat. Take care, do not use a heating pad on ‘high’ or place ice directly on the skin. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.

Hi I am suffering with scoliosis from long years. Is the scoliosis is completely curable? If yes, what is the treatment?

Hi I am suffering with scoliosis from long years. Is the scoliosis is completely curable? If yes, what is the treatment?
Hello Ms. lybrate-user! as you are suffering from scoliosis which means lateral (sidewise curvature) or bending of the spinal vertebral column in either left or right side, but it is always associated with lumber spondylosis and even slip disc. This condition can be cured but depending upon the degree and extent of that bending portion. First of all, you have to use lumbar belt for supporting and creating balance in the spine, wear it whole day. Avoid climbing the stairs and bending postures and even lifting heavy weights. You have to start the treatment because the home remedies and correction of physical activities would help only 15-20 % .hot packs for fomentation, oil massage would not be too much beneficial.In ayurveda, it would be cured without using any kind of painkillers, so the chances of cure would be more, which would provide strength to your backbone, along with relief in radiating pain and stiffness. But first, start following home remedy advices as I've mentioned above. Hope you get well soon.

It is advisable to go for a thorough check up and some tests (CBC, ESR, blood sugar, electrolytes, Thyroid tests, urine routine etc) to come to some diagnosis. She should also take good care of her health. Let her adapt a healthy lifestyle and follow healthy habits as a daily routine. She can learn online about healthy habits (lifestyle changes) especially exercise and Yoga, and healthy diet (balanced diet) and proper sleep. She can also try Homeopathy which is safe and effective and can be taken with other medicines. Homeopathy is natural and improves the immunity without any side effects. You can contact me with all the details for a private consultation if interested in Homeopathic treatment.

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. To break that fatigue it is advisable to drink or eat protein and mineral food which would be a reservoir for you to store the energy. . And also you can check with your calcium & vitamin levels in your body by consulting a general physician. You can also improve the protein diet in your body. If the leg is longer than the other leg then the footwear can be modified with the heel length which will definitely resolve the current problem

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).

As arthritis is very common that you get generally bilaterally. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. You can take Ultrasonic therapy in one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics which would help to heal the damaged cartilages along with shortwave diathermy which would help to improve the blood circulation. Simple Knee Exercies Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping ball underneath the knee and keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation.
