Dear you can follow these methods for relief from backache (back pain): * first correct your sitting posture. Do not bend your lower back. You can use lumber belt for support. * do regular back strength exercises. Move your clockwise and anticlock wise. * do not sleep on very soft bed, sleep on slight hard cotton mattress. * do tadasana and bhjangasana for back strengthening. If you can not understand these asans you can consult me. Surya namaskar is also best asan in back pain. * take calcium rich diet and calcium and vitamin d supplements regularly. *do not take any heavy weight or heavy work. * if you are over weight then follow a good and effective diet plan to loose some kilos of weight. You can consult me to get a diet chart. * you can take guggalu tablets of himalaya for fast relief.

I am a 26 year old male. I used to work in it for 5 yrs. Now I move around so dont really sit in front of a comp but I have neck and back pain for about 6 months now, why?

There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.

I have low calcium in body. Due to which I am feeling pain in my knee. What kind of medicine I should take.

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
I have low calcium in body. Due to which I am feeling pain in my knee. What kind of medicine I should take.
If you think your pain is due to calcium deficiency then you need to take calcium supplements. Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury or some other medical conditions including arthritis, patellar tendinitis, acl injury, knee bursitis, torn meniscus, gout and infections. Try some home remedies for your pain- - ice is useful for the control of pain and swelling. It can be applied to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. The swollen knee should be elevated above the level of the heart while icing. -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting jogging aerobics, dancing playing sport specific exercises will help you improve range of motion, strength, and endurance. It is especially important to focus on strengthening and stretching your quadriceps since these muscles are the main stabilizers of your kneecap. Core exercises may also be recommended to strengthen the muscles in your abdomen and lower back. Also maintaining a healthy body weight to avoid over stressing your knees are very important. -a full history of your problem should be taken and your movements assessed by a physiotherapist. Please consult a physiotherapist for the same. Best wishes.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Please tell me what was the initiating factor for your pain? there are many causes of knee pain in young people, if there is no associated swelling, skin redness or any other s/s of inflammation or infection, then - start with intensive physical therapy focussing on strengthening of your quadriceps muscle and stretching of other muscle groups - hot water fomentation 3-4 times at home - local analgesic spray like dynapar qps for local application after fomentation - take adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation as per requirement - you can take short course of anti inflammatory medication like tab etoshine, tab paracetamol or any medicine which suits you for 5-7 days what medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. I would like to know whether you have got your inflammatory profile done till now. Also please let me know what all exercises you are doing on a daily basis. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Due to bad posture ok sit straight avoid long sitting toward bending firstly. Do stretching exercise of full spine and legs. Pain in left arm tk muscle relaxant medicine bcoz that's due to neck and strain. Apply heat fermentation for neck 20 minutes. Maintain your posture.

My mother is having swelling on her right hand due to fracture of the bone, what should she do to reduce it?

MBBS
General Physician,
Is the fracture of bone a recent one or old one? if recent then you should take her to a surgeon for reduction of fracture. And further management. If old it could be heamatoma collection of blood clot on fracture site. In any case you should consult a doctor. Do not self medicate.

I have a problem in spinal cord mild stenosis in ll3 l4 and l4 l5 can it be rectified by key hole surgery what is meant by key hole surgery.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
Not all cases of backache need surgery. Most of them can be managed with out surgery. 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. DO HOT FOMANTATION. Paracetamol 250mg OD & SOS x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab OD x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again.. Do not ignore .It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Your symptoms are giving a picture of soft tissue injury and inflammation around your wrist. Give rest to your affected wrist. Consult a physician and take painkillers prescribed. Go for two weeks of physiotherapy sessions. Once pain subsides do exercises (prescribed by your physio) to regain the strength and mobility of your joint.

Always make sure that you use the therapeutic hot agents when the injury is in the chronic stage. They can also be used prior to physiotherapy or exercise to decrease muscle tension and increase flexibility.
