I had ankle sprain but I didn't get better treatment, now I feel painful while I play can someone prescribe me any medicines.

Physiotherapist, Raipur
An old ankle sprain cannot be healed wid medicines only. You have to do strengthening of muscles around the ankle. Keep your leg straight and push your feet away from your body stopping the movement using a rubber tube or a resistance band. Then pull your toes towards yourself while somebody resists the movement. Similarly you ve to move your feet inward and outward. You can also walk on your toes and heel.

Which part of legs are painful? Legs are from groin to toe. It becomes very difficult to advice when question doesn't indicate appropriate body part and lacks details.

It is hard to tell just by the limited description given. I would recommend yourself to be seen by a hand specialist to rule out carpal tunnel syndrome (pressure on the nerve in the wrist), which can be treated initially with therapy but in some cases may require injections or surgical release.

The back pain may be due to lumbago that is sacilization of lumber vertebrae or may have osteoarthritis of lumber vertebrae. He should take supplement tab calcium sandose daily for lack of calcium. Get an xray of done ap and lateral view. You may consult a orthopedic surgeon. Regarding asthma it could be allergic asthma due to cold. Avoid exposure to cold climate. It will be alright.

I have pain on my pectoral muscles after doing push-ups for long time? What should I do?
You need to do hot and cold compress alternately if this helps you. Secondly you should take Mag phos 12 x - twice daily for next 3 days. If this does not helps you get back to me. Morever take rest for few days and then join gym again.

It may not be due to b12 deficiency. 1. Take one tablet of crocin pain relief sos after food upto a maximum of 3 tablets daily 2. Apply volini gel twice daily 3. Give warm compress locally 4. Take rest if you have recurrent attack of neck pain a) take x ray/mri cervical spine to exclude spondylitis and consult orthopedic specialist b) sometimes it could be due to bad sitting posture while reading or working on computer. Adopt proper sitting posture, put neck rest, use soft pillow while sleeping c) do physio therapy and neck exercise after consulting physiotherapist.

Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult agter 10 days.
