Hello. We can't reverse the established pathology back, but we can control the process in the stage it is so that it wouldn't grow further. Apply Bakson’s Rheum Aid oil gently (2-3 times a day) and take orally Bakson’s Rheum-Aid syrup/ 1 tablespoon thrice daily. Also, increase your dietary intake of calcium which is present in green leafy vegetables, milk, milk products, sea food, white legumes, dried fig, black-eyed peas, almonds, oranges, seasame seeds. And vitamin D which is essential for absorption of calcium in our body and is synthesized naturally after getting exposed to sunlight, so early morning sunlight for 10-15min. 2-3 times a day is mandatory. Apart from this, do walk daily along with physiotherapy will also help you.

My mother is 50 years old and has diabetes. She has been undergoing acute pain below the shoulder blade, and also near the heart region. Has to take painkillers daily. She believes it might be cervical pain, that sounds reasonable for the shoulder blade pain but what about near the heart? Also she has arthritis and is not supposed to walk much.

What happens if we don't do physiotherapy soon after having an ACL injury? Does muscle loss happened during the bed rest recover by itself? How does it affect future life?

Excercise is an important part of life. After all injury the muscles needs to work harder to compensate for the instability. The muscle needs excercise to regain its strength. The muscles if weak will lead to having chronic pain of the knee. Studies have shown that it takes almost a year for the muscles to regain the full strength of the muscles.

My wife suffers from pain originating from her shoulders to the whole of right hand. She had it checked and also went for physiotherapy and heat massages. She also takes Vitamin D as directed. But the pain is ever increasing and also the area effected is increasing. What could be the cause??

Cause could be the compression of the nerve traversing the arm from the neck. I would suggest you get an MRI done to know the exact cause and also to direct the therapy accordingly..

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, Greetings. As I see from what you said, you have Two different Problems 1.Chronic Sinusitis 2. Low back Pain with Sciatica being aggravated by stress and strain. And can also get aggravated by sneezing and cough as a result of off and on Sinusitis. The solution is that you have to consult 1. An ENT Surgeon for sinusitis 2. You also has to consult an Orthopedic surgeon to get examination and investigation for Back pain and Sciatica, may be due to Lumbar Disc lesion. Wishing you all the Best.

No need to panic. As per what you had discussed you are suffering from Large Intestine Heat which is attacking your shoulder. Just follow Hand Acupressure Chart Which is Available on net in this you will find all the points. Just Press the points three times and for two or three minutes in a day for few days. Your pain will not occur again.

In conditions like yours where shoulder pain is not responding to physiotherapy, you should consult a pain specialist. You need to undergo ultrasonography of shoulder and intervention can be planned accordingly. In your case an injection known as Suprascapular nerve block will relieve the pain. This injection is given with help of ultrasound or X ray guidance in operation theatre to block pain transmission from shoulder joint. After pain relief you will be able to undergo effective exercise therapy. For further queries, consult.

Dear, Frozen shoulder gives acute pain symptoms at night. There's no medicine for improving the shoulder however pain killers may give temporary relief but that will keep the shoulder frozen only. I would recommend her to take physiotherapy especially shoulder mobilisation exercises which a therapist only can perform and it can take from 3 months to 6 months of physiotherapy for the condition to be fully cured (depends on her shoulder condition and medical history) For other joints please get some blood tests done (like rheumatoid factor, Utica acid, ESR and CRP etc) to check out the kind of arthritis and for that you need to consult an orthopaedic.

Apart from hot water what you also require is a good shoulder exercises programme wear good mobilization can be done for your shoulder and then after every session of exercises kindly use a cold pack for 20 minutes. This will reduce swelling and will decrease pain. You could progress slowly after 10 days to theraband exercisea and resisted exercises gain which will be told by the physio. By your physiotherapists.

Dear , How old are you? Does your shoulder pain only with over head movements? You appear to have supraspinatus tendinitis, which is mild stretching of one of the ligaments in your shoulder. Rest your shoulder for 2 weeks, avoid over head lifting and use a pain killer. The pain will improve, though it may take some time to improve.
