Fracture: How To Recover From It?

Fracture: How To Recover From It?

Even though we have 206 bones in our bodies, breaking just one is enough to bring our daily lives to a standstill. A partial or complete break in a bone is termed as a fracture. While minor fractures can heal in as little as 6 weeks major fractures can take 3-4 months to heal properly. In cases of complex fractures, you may need physical therapy even after this time period to get back complete mobility. Hence patience is essential when a fracture is healing, but here are a few tips on how to speed up the process.

  1. Increase your protein intake: Proteins are essential for the healing and repairing of damage to bones and tissues. Proteins also give the bone structure its strength, Hence, depriving the body of adequate protein will result in the formation of soft bones rather than hard, strong bones. This prevents a bone from fracturing in the same place again.
  2. Have a diet rich in antioxidants: Inflammation is one of the first symptoms of a fracture. This inflammation can continue for many days after the incident and until the inflammation reduces, healing cannot take place properly. Antioxidants help rid toxins from the body and help reduce inflammation thereby initiating the healing process. Antioxidants can also help relieve pain.
  3. Exercise: While you must take care not to apply too much pressure on the affected area it is essential to move the limb as much as possible. Being active promotes blood flow and in this way speeds up the healing process.
  4. Avoid alcohol and caffeine: In most cases, a doctor will prescribe pain relievers to deal with the pain of a fracture. Under no circumstances should you consume alcohol when taking these medications. Even after the antibiotic course is over it is a good idea to abstain from alcohol as this can increase inflammation. Similarly, caffeine and all caffeinated products should also be avoided as they contain compounds that can prevent calcium from being absorbed.
  5. Have an alkaline diet: Having an alkaline diet with lots of fruits and vegetables helps stabilise the pH levels of the body and conserves minerals and proteins needed to build strong bones. In this way, it creates the optimal environment for healing. An alkaline diet also increases the production of growth hormones and other growth factors like IGF insulin in the body. These are crucial to speeding up the healing process and aid in new bone formation.

Slipped Disc - 4 Ways to Treat it!

Slipped Disc - 4 Ways to Treat it!

Are you prone to Slipped disc problem? + the ideal way to treat it. 

A slipped disc, also known as a prolapsed disc or herniated disc, is the term given to the phenomenon that occurs when a cartilaginous disc found between the vertebrae in the spine becomes slightly displaced or protrudes, thereby pressing on the nerves in the adjacent areas and causing back pain

This happens when the soft inner part of the disc, known as nucleus pulposus, bulges out through a weakness in the exterior part of the disc. A prolapsed disc usually occurs in the lower region of the spine and can be of varying sizes. There might even be the development of inflammation around the disc in some cases. 

Who is likely to get affected? 
Most cases of herniated disc occur in patients between the ages of 30 and 50. The number of men affected is twice as many as the number of women. Although the root cause of this problem is not yet known, there are a number of factors that may trigger it. These factors include working at a job that requires a lot of lifting, an occupation that involves remaining in a seated position for a long time, weight-bearing sports, obesity, smoking habits and increasing age.

Effective ways of treating the problem 
The different methods that are commonly used to treat the problem are: 

  1. Medications - There are many different kinds of medicines that are effective in providing relief. These include painkillers, muscles relaxants, anti-inflammatory pills, etc.
  2. Spinal (Epidural) injections - A number of spinal injections are used to treat slipped discs. The injection is done in operation theatre under X-Ray imaging to find exact level of disc bulge. The injection consists of drug mixture of local anaesthetic and steroid. The injection is done at the opening where the inflamed nerve roots are found and reduces pain, swelling and irritation in the area. 
  3. Radiofrequency ablation - This procedure makes use of an electrical current produced by radio waves to reduced pain and sensitivity in the affected area. 
  4. Ozone discectomy - As opposed to the surgical removal of the prolapsed disc, this new process makes use of an ozone-oxygen mixture that is injected into the spine to treat the problem. Many international studies have proved its superiority to traditional methods and surgeries. 

Those affected by this problem are advised to keep exercising and continuing with their everyday activities as best as possible. After any of the above treatment methods a regular spine and core strengthening regime is to be followed. Immediate surgical intervention may be needed in acute cases of disc prolapse causing nerve compression with neurological deficits like leg weakness or loss of control over urine and stools. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pain management specialist.

Garbhashay Ki Safai - गर्भाशय की सफाई

Garbhashay Ki Safai - गर्भाशय की सफाई

गर्भाशय महिलाओं का एक विशिष्ट अंग है जिसमें कई तरह की नियमित प्रक्रियाएं चलती रहती हैं. यदि ठीक से इसकी देखभाल या रखरखाव नहीं किया जाए तो इसके बेहद गंभीर परिणाम हो सकते हैं. इसलिए ये आवश्यक है कि इस विषय में बात किया जाए और जागरूकता फैलाया जाए. यदि हमें गर्भाशय के सफाई के प्रति जागरूक होना है तो पहले हमें ये जानना होगा कि गर्भाशय क्या है? और कैसे काम करता है?
 

क्या है गर्भाशय?
गर्भाशय स्त्री जननांग है. यह 7.5 सेमी लम्बी, 5 सेमी चौड़ी तथा इसकी दीवार 2.5 सेमी मोटी होती है. इसका वजन लगभग 35 ग्राम तथा इसकी आकृति नाशपाती के आकार के जैसी होती है. जिसका चौड़ा भाग ऊपर फंडस तथा पतला भाग नीचे इस्थमस कहलाता है. महिलाओं में यह मूत्र की थैली और मलाशय के बीच में होती है तथा गर्भाशय का झुकाव आगे की ओर होने पर उसे एन्टीवर्टेड कहते है अथवा पीछे की तरफ होने पर रीट्रोवर्टेड कहते है. गर्भाशय के झुकाव से बच्चे के जन्म पर कोई प्रभाव नहीं पड़ता है. गर्भाशय का ऊपरी चौड़ा भाग बाडी तथा निचला भाग तंग भाग गर्दन या इस्थमस कहलाता है. इस्थमस नीचे योनि में जाकर खुलता है. इस क्षेत्र को औस कहते है. यह 1.5 से 2.5 सेमी बड़ा तथा ठोस मांसपेशियों से बना होता है. गर्भावस्था के विकास गर्भाशय का आकार बढ़कर स्त्री की पसलियों तक पहुंच जाता है. साथ ही गर्भाशय की दीवारे पतली हो जाती है.
 

कैसे होती है गरर्भाशय कि सफाई?
डायलेशन एंड क्यूरेटेज (डी एंड सी) एक सर्जिकल प्रक्रिया है जिसमें गर्भाशय ग्रीवा (गर्भाशय का निचला, संकीर्ण हिस्सा) को डाएलेट (फैलाते) करते हैं ताकि गर्भाशय की परत को क्युरेट के द्वारा क्यूरेटेज (खुरच कर निकालना) किया जा सके जिससे असामान्य ऊतकों को निकाला जा सके. प्रत्येक मासिक चक्र के साथ, एंडोमेट्रियम जो गर्भाशय की लाइनिंग है, भ्रूण का पोषण करने के लिए तैयार होती है. एस्ट्रोजन और प्रोजेस्टेरोन के बढ़ते स्तर इसकी इस लाइनिंग को मोटाई देने में मदद करते हैं. यदि निषेचित अंडे का आरोपण नहीं होता है, तो एंडोमेट्रियम लाइनिंग टूट जाती है. यह लाइनिंग योनि और गर्भाशय ग्रीवा से रक्त और म्यूकस के साथ मिलकर, मासिक की ब्लीडिंग के साथ निकाल दी जाती है. पोलिप, बॉडी सेल्स की असामान्य ग्रोथ को कहते हैं. जब पोलिप गर्भाशय की भीतरी दीवार से जुड़ा होता है तो, यह गर्भाशय के पॉलीव्स / यूट्रिन पोलिप या एंडोमेट्रियल पोलिप कहलाता है. यह गर्भाशय की कैविटी में लटकता है.
 

पोलिप कैसे हटाते हैं?
गर्भाशय के अस्तर में कोशिकाओं के अधिक बढ़ जाने पर यह पोलिप बनते हैं. यूट्रिन पोलिप का आकार एक तिल के दाने से छोटा से लाकर गोल्फ बॉल जितना बड़ा हो सकता है. पोलिप एक बड़े आधार या पतले तने से गर्भाशय की दीवार से जुड़े रहते हैं. बड़े पोलिप को हटाने के लिए बहुत बार डीएनसी के लिए कहा जाता है. कई बार गर्भाशय से एबनार्मल ब्लीडिंग होने लगती है. ऐसा गर्भाशय के अंदर पोलिप होने से, लाइनिंग बढ़ जाने, पूरी तरह से गर्भपात नहीं होने या डिलीवरी के बाद गर्भाशय की सफाई नहीं होने से हो सकता है. स्त्री रोग विशेषज्ञ को दिखाने पर वे पेल्विक की जांच के बाद गर्भाशय की सफाई या डी एंड सी के लिए कह सकती हैं. डायलेशन एंड क्यूरेटेज को सफाई के लिए, गर्भपात के लिए, पीरियड के असामान्य होने पर, या पूरे गर्भपात नहीं होने पर किया जाता है.
 

डी एंड सी इस प्रक्रिया के लिए:

  • आपको अस्पताल द्वारा दिया गया कपड़ा पहनने को दिया जायेगा. आपको मूत्राशय को खाली करने का निर्देश दिया जाएगा. आपको ऑपरेटिंग टेबल पर पोजीशन किया जाएगा. आपके बांह या हाथ में एक अंतःशिरा (IV) लाइन शुरू हो सकती है. एक मूत्र कैथेटर डाला जा सकता है. योनि की दीवारों को फैलाने के लिए गर्भाशय ग्रीवा को देखने के लिए अपनी योनि में एक स्पेकुलम नामक एक इंस्ट्रूमेंट डाला जाएगा.
  • सर्विक्स को एंटीसेप्टिक से साफ़ किया जाएगा. एनेस्थीसिया दिया जाएगा. टेनाकुलम नामक एक इंस्ट्रूमेंट से गर्भाशय ग्रीवा को स्थिर रखने के लिए किया जा सकता है. गर्भाशय की लंबाई निर्धारित करने के लिए गर्भाशय ग्रीवा के अंदर यूटेरिन साउंड डाला जा सकता है. सर्विक्स को पतली रोड्स से फैलया जाएगा.
  • क्यूरेट से गर्भाशय साफ़ किया जाएगा. प्रक्रिया के बाद कुछ दिनों तक ब्लीडिंग होना सामान्य है. डी एंड सी के बाद कुछ दिनों तक आपको ऐंठन का अनुभव हो सकता है. आपको निर्देश दिया जा सकता है कि डी एंड सी के दो से तीन सप्ताह बाद तक, आप डूश, टैम्पोन का इस्तेमाल न करें, सेक्स नहीं करें और योनि में कुछ न डालें, या जब तक ब्लीडिंग नहीं रुक जाए. 1-2 सप्ताह बाद तक क्रेम्पिंग हो सकती है. अगला पीरियड जल्दी या देर से आ सकता है. ऐंठन या पीड़ा के लिए एक दर्द निवारक के रूप में अपने चिकित्सक द्वारा सिफारिश की दवा ही लें. एस्पिरिन या कुछ अन्य दर्द नाशक दवाओं से रक्तस्राव की संभावना बढ़ सकती है.

Breast Cancer - What Should You Do To Reduce Your Risk?

Breast Cancer - What Should You Do To Reduce Your Risk?

While you cannot cure breast diseases, family history and maturing, but there are some hazards or risks that you can control. Keeping in mind the fact that there is no certain approach to forestall breast cancer, there are things you can do that may bring down the hazard. Here are five approaches to ensure your breast's well-being:

  1. Watch your weight: Being overweight or hefty expands breast cancer chances. This is particularly true after menopause and for women who have put on weight as grown-ups. After menopause, the vast majority of your estrogen originates from fat tissue. Having more fat tissue can heighten your chances of getting breast cancer by raising the estrogen levels. Additionally, women who are overweight have a tendency to have more elevated amounts of insulin, than other hormones. Higher insulin levels have been associated with a few tumors, including breast cancer.
  2. Exercise routinely: Many reviews have found that exercise is the sign of having a healthy breast. Studies show that one to two hours of energetic walking each week, lessened a woman’s cancer risk by eighteen percent. Walking ten hours seven days decreased the hazard all the more.
  3. Constrain liquor: Women who have two to five mixed beverages every day have a higher danger of breast cancer than women who have just one drink a day or none . As much as three to six glasses of wine seven days have been found to somewhat increase breast cancer chances. It is not clear how or why liquor raises the hazard. In any case, constraining liquor is particularly essential for women who have other hazard variables for breast cancer, like, breast cancer running in their families.
  4. Restrain time spent sitting: Research has shown that sitting time, regardless of how much exercise you get when you are not sitting, increases the probability of growing cancer, particularly for women. Women who sit six hours or more a day outside of work have a ten percent more serious risk for breast cancer compared to the ladies who sit under three hours a day, and an increased hazard for other cancer types as well.
  5. Stay away from or confine hormone substitution treatment: Hormone Replacement Treatment (HRT) was utilized frequently in the past to control night sweats, hot flashes, and other troublesome manifestations of menopause. In any case, specialists now realize that postmenopausal ladies who take a blend of estrogen and progestin might probably create breast tumors or cancer. Breast cancer disease seems to come back within five years in the wake of ceasing the blend of hormones. Therefore, get a breast cancer test even if you feel a small lump.

Kidney Cancer - How Its Stages Can Affect The Treatment?

Kidney Cancer - How Its Stages Can Affect The Treatment?

Cancer of the kidneys is amongst the ten most common types of Cancer. There are many types of renal cancer with Renal cell carcinoma being the most common amongst them. Renal cancer is said to be triggered by a genetic mutation but the cause for this mutation is yet unknown. While kidney cancer appears suddenly in some cases, in others it is inherited from the parents. Here are 4 things you should know about cancer of the kidneys.

Risk Factors
Along with a mutation of the genes which is beyond our control, some lifestyle factors can also increase a person’s risk of suffering from renal cancer. Some of these factors are:

  1. Smoking
  2. Obesity
  3. High blood pressure

Symptoms
An early diagnosis can make the treatment of renal cancer much easier than if it is left undiagnosed. Hence, it becomes important to recognise the symptoms of this disease. Common renal cancer symptoms include:

  1. Blood in the urine
  2. A lump on either side of the abdomen
  3. Persistent pain on one side of the abdomen
  4. Tiredness
  5. Unexplained weight loss
  6. Fever

These symptoms are common to a number of other diseases as well and hence if you experience them, it is best to get yourself checked out by a doctor. In order to confirm a diagnosis, your doctor is likely to ask for blood tests, urine tests, an ultrasound and a CT scan or an MRI. In most cases, your doctor will also schedule a biopsy to check for cancer cells in the kidney tissue.

Stages of kidney cancer
Once cancer has been diagnosed, your doctor will need to determine the extent of damage caused in order to find the best form of treatment for the disease. Stages of kidney cancer are determined by the size of the tumour and on how much it has spread from the original location. There are four stages of kidney cancer.
Stage I – When the cancer cells are restricted to the kidneys and the tumour is no bigger than 3” in diameter
Stage II – The tumour has grown bigger in size but is still restricted to the kidney
Stage III – The tumour may be big or small but has spread to at least one lymph node or has affected the blood vessels
Stage IV – The cancerous cells have spread to nearby lymph nodes or other organs or the tumour has grown through the fatty layer and outer fibrous layer of the kidney.

Treatment
Kidney cancer can be cured easily if detected in the early stages by removing the tumour and adjacent tissue or the entire kidney if need be. Removing one kidney is not fatal as a person can live a healthy life with a single kidney.
