What is the basic requirement to build a proper health for person age of 45 & best way to cure knee problem.
take mahayograj guggul 1 tab twice daily.... 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.

Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are many causes of pain in lower back region. It can be due to faulty posture, related to weak muscles, issues with intervertebral disc, narrowing of spinal canal, any bony instability besides many other, so accurate diagnosis is the key to proper management of the condition. You will have to elaborate your problem as to a detailed discussion of your back pain which means mode of onset of this pain. I would also like to ask you if it is associated with any radiating leg pain or any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias (electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. Please also tell me about any associated symptoms like fever, weight loss etc. What medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. Ideally 5 years is quite a long time for you to be having these issues, and if examination findings point, we should think of getting a dynamic x ray of the involved region of your back done and mri scan of the spine to rule out any major pathology. 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.

Back pain-Back pain may be due to strain, sprain, weather change etc. *Avoid bending forward while working on lap top or for any other work. *Don’t sit continuously working on laptop etc. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict bike driving as far as possible. *Don’t carry laptop or any load on your shoulder. Carrying very light loads equally with both hands is better *Sit straight so that back bone gets proper support. A dining chair is better than a laid back sofa. *You can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good *Soft bed will not give proper support to your back bone. Hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow is better. *Get yourself tested whether you have spondylitis problem. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take Calc fluor 200--once daily in the morning.

Causes and Treatments of Cervical Spondylitis

Hi friends! I’m Dr. Sumit Dhawan, MD in Homeopathy. I’m here to help you to get rid of all your problems with the goodness of Homeopathy and in the most natural and effective way of healing. The topic of today is cervical spondylitis. Cervical spondylitis,  back pain and  shoulder pain,  is a very common problem today.Thousands of people are suffering from it today and, they are not getting a proper cure especially after the age of 30s and 40s. You generally develop a pain in your shoulder, in your back and you are helpless as you are not getting permanent relief from this problem. If this problem is acute, it can be managed within two three days but if it becomes chronic, then it can result into various problems like spondylosis.

Spondylosis is change in your spine, bone changes in your spine and when they occur we call it spondylosis and it can also lead to vertigo. If these muscles are stiff and 99% of the vertigo which is happening today, the cause, for that is, cervical spondylitis only.  I would like to tell you homeopathy has a very good role in treating this problem and in a very simple way, in a most natural way. You’ll be getting relief from this problem with a goodness of Homeopathy.

I would like to tell you the basic causes of cervical spondylitis. Stress in people which they are having today, i.e, stress at their workplace, the stress at the schools, the stress is everywhere the person is working. You are working at the laptops, at the computers, and without realizing that you are giving strain to your muscles of your neck and shoulder. You have been working continuously and you don’t realize that you are injuring your muscles directly and as a result of continuous injury, repetitive injury, you develop a pain in your shoulder and neck.

If you want to get rid of this problem, there are basic ways on your part as well as on my part which I have got to help you. On your part, you must do some basic exercises like butterflies excercise,  yoga,  pranayama, and that is on your part which will just increase your circulation and help you get healing your injured muscles. The inflammation which is there but if the inflammation is more you need to a have medical intervention. In modern science, you get pain killers and the things which have got side effects but still you are not able to get relief permanently, they might help you temporarily but on a longer run, they will never help you on a longer run because they just help you temporarily. Till the time you are taking the painkiller , you are going to get relief and once you stop taking the pain killer, you’ll get the pain back again and the role of homeopathy comes here when you are getting the pain repetitively and you are not getting cured of your problem, homeopathy helps you.

Homeopathy is there to help you always. And I’m there to guide you how you can take homeopathy and this. When these muscles are fatigue, when these muscles are injured, homeopathy helps you to give your body enough strength to recover, basically. And when we use homeopathic medicines basically the pain also gets reduced. How? Because the inflammation which is there we give enough strength to our body to recover. If your body has enough strength to recover, it will definitely help to reduce down the pain, reduce down the inflammation. Once the inflammation is lesser, the pain automatically goes away.

There are various homeopathic medicines which are available, which you can take under the guidance of a Doctor and you can always ask me as well, how to take them and how to have a healthier lifestyle, and a problem free neck and shoulder. I’m always there to help you. I do sign off for today. I would like to tell you we have been treating cervical spondylitis patients and spondylosis patients as well with vertigo and without vertigo and permanently getting relief from vertigo which is a very big thing in today’s scenario with the help of Homeopathic medicines only . The patients recover within a week, within two three days if the pain is acute, patients with chronic problem also get relief within a week that’s a very good thing for our health industry and people should take benefit out of this and I’m always there to help you.

I’m available at my clinic in Malviya Nagar and as well as online and we are working with Lybrate. Platform like this is a boon for the patients and they can take benefit from us. All the best guys! If you need any help, just let me know.

It must be sciatic pain ie. The nerve gets compressed in the low back. For that conservative management would be ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. It is suggestible to wear lumbo sacral belt which would help you to build the abdominal muscle tone which itself would make you feel better. You can also wear mcr chappals which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back.
