Compression wearing compression stockings is vital for preventing and treating varicose veins. They steadily squeeze your legs to help improve your circulation. They may also help to relieve pain, discomfort or swelling in your legs. Walking just walk more. It’s a great way to encourage blood circulation in your legs. Pedaling lie flat on your back. Place your hands out to your sides. If you prefer you can place them beneath your buttocks to prevent strain to the lower back. Lift your legs off the floor, and pedal them as if you were pedaling a bicycle. The more you elevate your legs, the more you will increase blood circulation. Leg lifts lie on your back with your hands beneath your buttocks. Keep your buttocks pressed down, and your lower back against the floor. Lift one leg at a time and hold in an elevated pose perpendicular to the floor until you feel the blood begin to flow back up from your feet, calves, and thighs. Repeat with your other leg. Alternately, you can raise both legs and rotate your ankles to further improve leg circulation. Knee bends with ankle flexion lie again on the floor on your back. Slowly pull one knee into your chest, holding onto your leg behind your knee (holding on top of the kneecap puts undue pressure on this delicate joint). Now, point and flex your foot several times. Do this slowly and forcefully – don’t let your foot flap around loosely, but rather tighten the muscles of the calves and the tendons around your ankle. Repeat with the opposite leg. The same measures to treat the discomfort from varicose veins can help prevent them: •watching your weight; •a high-fiber, low-salt diet; •avoiding high heels and tight hosiery; •elevating your legs; •avoid crossing your legs; •changing your sitting or standing position regularly.

Hello yes definitely gabapin can be taken upto a lot more dose than you're taking. Please increase the dose if needed. If you feel any dizziness thats when you stop increasing the dose. Every body tolerates it differently I usually start with 100 mg once and raise it to 450 mg thrice as and how the patient tolerates baclofen or liofen can also be increased (added with daily stretching exercises) to decrease stiffness remember- these tablets only help you deal with the symptoms only. Not the cure for syrinx please do feel free to consult me if you have queries.

Hi sir / mam what is the best treatment for ulnar play (cubital tunnel syndrome) instead of surgery.
Cold compresses can help reduce swelling in the area. Cooling also helps to numb sharp pain. Apply an ice pack for up to 20 minutes, up to five times a day. Use a frozen gel pack, ice cubes in a plastic bag, or a bag of frozen peas. Wrap the cold pack in a soft towel. Do not apply a cold pack directly to skin. Heat therapy heat helps to relax tense muscles and soothe a stiff area. It can help with muscle pain and bonny pain. Use a heated gel pack, heating pad or a hot water bottle.

Hi sir/ mam which is the best treatment for cubital tunnel syndrome and how long it will be take to cure?
I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. If these conservative measures fail to provide relief after three months, your doctor may consider surgery to reduce pressure on the radial nerve. Surgery is often recommended in severe cases, particularly those in which the wrist becomes weak or droopy or it becomes difficult to extend the fingers. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

Can a kyphosis of less than 54° while standing needs surgery? Is it possible for that such an kyphosis could cause abdominal tenderness?

MBBS, PG-Diploma In Clinical Pathology
General Physician, Sri Ganganagar
Spine specialists consider kyphosis curves normal up to 45-50 degrees. Beyond this range, the curve is considered excessive and may require treatment. Curves, more than 70 degrees that are painful and / or progressive, may require surgery.
