If she is unable to walk, then first of all try to find out the cause. Only then you will come to know whether her treatment is medical or surgical. At the age of 59 years, if she is having severe tricompartmental osteoarthritis of knees, then the treatment is total knee replacement, not any medicine.

Homeopathic Remedies for Sciatic Nerve Compression Pain

Homeopathic Remedies for Sciatic Nerve Compression Pain

Sciatica nerve is the longest nerve of our body, which starts from the spinal cord, passes through the lower back and into the lower leg. Sciatica is a symptom of pain in the sciatic nerve which occurs if it is being compressed by any mass, irritated or overgrowth along its course.

Symptoms
Patients with sciatica experience severe pain along their back as well as may suffer from additional symptoms including numbness and weakness, a feeling of tingling and pins and needles on the foot or toes. In severe cases, some people may also suffer from loss of bladder and bowel control.

Causes
One of the most common reasons is the pinching of the nerve due to a slipped disc in the lower back. Other conditions which cause sciatica are trauma to the spine, spondylolisthesis, spinal tumors and lumbar vertebral canal stenosis.

Prevention
One of the easiest ways to prevent sciatica is by protecting your lower spine. You can follow these easy tips that can be really helpful in maintaining your health and remaining pain free.

  1. Exercising regularly: By exercising regularly, patients can strengthen their back and abdominal muscles and prevent damage to their vertebral column.
  2. Good posture: By maintaining a good posture while sitting and working in an ergonomically designed chair that properly supports your hips and back and does not compress the back of your thighs and knees while sitting is essential to maintain a healthy back.

Treatment
Homeopathy offers natural medicines that can cure and reduce sciatica pain. One of the biggest advantages that homoeopathy offers for treating sciatica is that it can treat the disease effectively, by rectifying the compression or irritation on the sciatic nerve.

Homeopathy practitioners use Colocynth for treatment caused in right sided sciatica pain. Homeopathic medicine Gnaphlium is used to treat numbness associated with the paint, while Rhus tox is usually helpful in treating all sciatica symptoms and is the most preferred medicine by homeopathic practitioners.

Homeopathy also offers additional benefits as it not only helps in rectifying sciatica pain it also help in strengthening a patient’s constitution so that the disease is cured from its roots and there are no further recurrences. Homeopathic medicine is very fast and effective and is totally natural, free from any side effects. It is one of the most widely accepted forms of medicine which causes no side effects and can be taken easily by both men and women.

Septic Arthritis Hip

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
Septic Arthritis Hip

Septic Arthritis of Hip is relatively uncommon condition in children, but it should be suspected in a child who is ill, toxic and unable to walk. Movement of the affected joint is not possible because of pain. Diagnosis is confirmed by raised white cell count and erythrocyte sedimentation rate(ESR) and perhaps by effusion on ultrasound images. No test is perfectly sensitive or specific, so expert clinical judgement is required.

Urgent surgical drainage should be done to save the hip joint from destruction or to reduce the risk of late osteoarthritis.

  • Diagnosis may be particularly difficult in neonates.
  • Staphylococcus aureus  is the usual infective organism.
  • Patient will need long term antibiotic  therapy.
  • Weight bearing should be avoided until complete recovery.

Emotional Distress and Back pain
Back pain is one of the problems most often viewed by a physiotherapist.
In fact, four out of five person will have an back pain sometime during their life.

Only some people have longer episodes of back pain. When there is a suffering, It is quite normal to experience emotional reactions to  back pain. These responses can include fear, anxiety and worry  about what the pain means and what harms body have , how long it will last pain  and how much it affects daily life. In fact, pain is a complex experience that includes both physical and psychological elements.
Frequently back pain is also interrelated to a number of factors.
All of these recommendations are designed to cut the emotional concerns and stress most patients experience with pain. Anxiousness about pain and hurt can actually increase your feelings  of pain and decrease  your pain tolerance .

Thither is a cycle between our pain and thought process, as more pain perceived by our body more will it leads to distress, so then it becomes a cycle of more pain and more stress to our body.

Psychological problems about back pain leads to sleeplessness, irritability, and loss of interest in past habits.Sometimes pain increased up to a point that you want to get rid of it any cost.

In order to control psychological  disturbance , it is important to questions about your back pain from your physiotherapist  so you do not leave uncertain or distressed . To know about your pain will help lessen your anxiety.

During the early period, feelings of helplessness, aggression occur. In order to overcome this stress, you need to be sure that your physiotherapy  is attentive to all of your physiological and psychological problems .

You and your physiotherapist  have to do the following:

You can report your pain level and type of pain to your physiotherapist that it helps to make a correct diagnosis.

Be sure your physiotherapist help you in getting away your fears with special assessment concerned to your activities ,lifestyle and age.He also informs you about your condition and make appropriate tests to rule out any serious problem.

Be sure about your physiotherapist that what he is looking for and what is he excluding in making a diagnosis.

Swelling in both the limbs indicates that you have a problem that concerns the entire body as opposed to a local problem which will lead to a local swelling only (like swelling in one leg only). In your case swelling may mean a lot of things but I am more worried about your kidney functions which can lead to such cases very frequently in diabetics and BP patients. Hence as a forthright advice - please get Urine ACR (albumin Creatinine Ratio) and KFT test from reputed standardised lab in your area.
