I have a continuous pain in back side of my left shoulder since 3 days what should I do?

I have a continuous pain in back side of my left shoulder since 3 days what should I do?
It might be due to gastric trouble. Kindly do breathing exercises which might help you to get reduced with pain in the back and right shoulder. This might be cervical pain (neck pain) and that's the reason the pain radiates until the shoulder blades. If you keep ice that would help and along side you can do hot water fermentation. You shall use cervical collar which would help you to reduce the radiating pain ie. Due to the nerve compression.

Hi, backache causes due to postural defects, stress, anxiety, traumatic injury, more than 50% cases are due to depression, deformity & stiffness of spine. Smoking, consumption of alcohol, angina factors, cholecystitis & insomnia. *smoking & alcohol are directly linked with neck & back pain, it causes disc degeneration of vertebrae. *respect your pain * & go for yoga and meditation to nourish vertebrae & back muscle, to ease your back pain. *go for constant movement of back muscle, joints which makes back muscle & spine, flexible. *nowadays meditation & yoga has become the way of life not an exercise, please opt it. #tk, homoeo medicine: @ rhus tox 200-6 pills thrice a day. @ arnica mont200-6-6 pills, thrice a day. *tk, plenty of water to eliminate toxins and moisten your back muscle to improve flexibility. *ensure, sound sleep for 7 hrs at least, in d night in d right posture on a hard surface. *your diet b easily digestible on time, don' t, skip your meal. *avoid, caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, junkfood, cold intake, exposure to cold, scorching sun. Sitting for a long time on d table. Tk care.

Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it.

Laser treatment in physiotherapy works for deep seated pain, but if there is extreme degeneration of the cartilage and bones, knee replacement is inevitable as it is a non reversible condition.

Hi, I can understand your problem 1) avoid activities that make your symptoms worse 2) apply ice packs 3) start physiotherapy treatment as electrotherapy will reduce pain inflammation 4) exercise and manual therapy will help in pain free movement. Describe your problem in detail and do share related reports and prescription if you have. Best wishes.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. If you have been diagnosed with tightness of hamstring muscles, then it is wise to get into intensive physical therapy under supervision of a trained physiotherapist. You will probably not require any medication for hamstring tightness. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. 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 medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one 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 will 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 in a private consultation.

Hi as orthopaedician suggested you must b having tear of pisterior cruciate ligament. And the drug which he prescribed is an antiinflamatory drug usually used in arthritis pain. This wil surely help you. If you are gud with this drug its ok. Bt you can not take this drug for a long time. And if you are not wel with the drug you can undergo a surgery to repair your ligament by arthroscopy.

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).
