Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young and your back pain could be muscular, discal etc in nature. You should continue with exercises for your back region, take gentle anti inflammatory medication, ice packs etc. But I would first advice you to consult your cardiologist and see if everything else is fine. 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.

Know more about the symptoms and types for frozen shoulder

Good morning everybody, I am doctor Rakesh Kumar, I am senior consultant in orthopedics in Apollo hospital, Jivan mala and MGS hospital. Today I am going to give health tips on frozen shoulder. Frozen shoulder is named as Adhesive Capsulitis. Adhesive Capsulitis is a condition in which contracted thickened joint capsules that seem to be drawn tightly around a humeral head in the absence of synovial fluid and chronic inflammatory changes within the subsynovial layer of the capsule occurs. The underlying pathological change in adhesive capsulitis are sinonasal inflammation, with subsequent reactive capsular fibrosis, cytokines and metaloprotanysis have been implicated in the process but the initial triggering event in the cascades is unknown. Incidence is 2%, but several conditions are specified with increased incidence, includes gender—i.e more common in females, more common in older ages—between 40 to 70 years, 5 times more common in diabetes mellitus, cervical disc diseases, prolonged immobilization, hyperthyroidism, stroke, or myocardial infections, the presence of autoimmune disease and trauma.


Individuals between ages 40 to 70 are more commonly affected, approximately 70% patients are females. 20% to 30% of affected individuals develop adhesive capsulitis in the opposite shoulder. Frozen shoulder in patients who report no inciting event and with no abnormality are designated as primary whereas in patients with precipitant traumatic injuries are designated as secondary. We have noted that internal rotation frequently is lost in sleep followed by loss of fluctuation and external rotation, most often our patients can internally rotate only upto the sacrum, have 50% loss of external rotation and have less than 90 degree of abduction.
We include these patients in the diagnosis of frozen shoulder.

Primary frozen shoulder have three phases-

Phase 1 is a phase of pain, patients usually have a gradual onset of diffused shoulder pain which is progressive over weeks to months, the pain usually is worse at night, and is exacerbated by lying on the affected side as the patient uses the arm less leading to stiffness.

Phase 2 is stiffness, Patient seeks pain relief by restricting movements this heralds the beginning of stiffness phase which usually lasts for 4 to 12 months. Patients describe difficulty in activity of daily living, men have trouble getting to their wallets in their back pockets while females have trouble with fastening their brassieres.

Phase 3 is pain thawing phase, this phase lasts for weeks or months. And as motion increases pain diminishes without treatment other than benign neglect motion return is gradual in most but may never objectively return to normal. Although most patients subjectively feels near normal, they make adjustments in ways of performing activities of daily livings.

Treatments- Frozen shoulder has been considered as self limiting condition lasting 12 to 18 months without long term sick leave.  Approximately 10% of patients have long term problems. The best treatment of frozen shoulder is prevention. But early intervention is paramount. A good understanding of the pathological process by the patient and the physician also is important.

If you need further clarification and have any question and need any treatment you can contact me through Lybrate.

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy: How Does it Help Your Muscles and Bones?

Hand Surgery, M.S. (Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Ahmedabad
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy: How Does it Help Your Muscles and Bones?

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a highly effective and innovative treatment option in a variety of fields, from urology to cosmetology including orthopedics. This is a non-invasive method that employs high-energy shockwaves to bring about the healing of the affected tissues. It has been found to provide good results for recalcitrant orthopaedic problems like frozen shoulder to certain chronic degenerative or tendon conditions such as Achilles tendinitis (injury of the Achilles' tendon due to overuse) and plantar fasciitis in heel pain.

How does it work?

The procedure is basically an outpatient/ daycare job. It involves the application of a non-invasive probe to the affected tissue. This is followed by the external generation of shockwaves focused on the target area. The shockwaves cause a force to be created that brings about healing. Although it's still not clear as to why this kind of therapy works, the dominant understanding is that shockwaves render an improvement in the flow of blood so as to promote the body to fix and heal itself.

Depending on individual cases, high or low energy waves may be employed. While pain may occur during the transmission of high energy waves and would require short general anaesthesia, low-energy ESWT is carried out without anesthesia.

What problems can this form of therapy effectively tackle?

ESWT can be used to treat a number of musculoskeletal disorders. From plantar fasciitis (heel pain), tennis elbow, shoulder rotator cuff, degenerated tendons (Achilles' tendon) to hip and knee pain, the therapy has been found to reduce pain as well as accelerate healing in individuals.

Complications are very few and far between with this therapy. Individuals who suffer from hypersensitivity or poor sensation in the affected area are usually not recommended this procedure. Even individuals with heart conditions, seizures and open sores need to consult a doctor before going forward with the therapy.

The therapy has also been found to be very effective in bone healing as well as treatment of bone necrosis (a disease that occurs due to permanent or temporary loss of blood flow to the bones). Additionally in place of surgery, ESWT may also be a valuable option for non-healing fractures.

Due to disc problems?
No. I don't think so. I personally don't refer any patient. It's having more side effects. It should be only prefer in more serious condition. Like if patient is not recovered by physiotherapy and other medicine than there is a option for that.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You complaints could be due to a soft tissue affection of the structures surrounding the shoulder joint like tendons, bursa, capsule etc. If there is no h/o any injury to the shoulder joint or any s/s of inflammation like instability, swelling, skin redness etc, then you can initiate a short course of anti inflammatory medications and physical therapy, and we will observe your progress for next 2-3 weeks, if you do not feel better, the we might get few investigations like mri of the affected shoulder region done. 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.
