I am suffering from backache from 2 year but I think no need to medicine only palish that's the right way.

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS

Hello lybrate user, back pain that is associated with day time sedentary jobs like computer professional s are associated with paraspinal muscle spasms. The best way to tackle this sort of pain is to do well spaced stretching exercises of the back, back extension exercises, using hot water bags to provide relief and avoiding stooping posture while sitting. Posture also plays a very important part in back pain, always maintain a straight posture while sitting. While getting up from the bed try to first go on your left or right side of the body and get up side ways. Avoid cruntches or sit-ups: they may increase the pressure on your back and may predispose to slip disc. Always maintain a healthy lifestyle in terms of regular brisk walking, meditation, eating healthy. P. S: try to avoid pain killers (analgesics) as much as possible as many are associated with side effects that you may not be aware of. Stay healthy. Stay happy god bless you.

Hello user. Ok your problem can be minimise if you take care of yourself timely. So first of all don't use pillow when sleep. Sit, walk straight, and must do yoga. Must do neck and shoulder exercises. While using laptop. Or watching tv. Sit properly. Less use of mobile phones. Eat properly. Drink milk with 1pinch of haldi at night. Take fresh air fruits vegetables. Put hot water bottle on neck.

Pleas start with stretching first. One week stretch then start Stretching Strength exercise. Always start Exe only after Stretch. If body pain increases then first check Calcium, Vit D3, and B12 checked. Hope other parameters are ok.

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. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You should not be having persistent knee pain because I am sure advanced degenerative changes should not be there in your knees. Actually it is better if you can send me your involved knee x rays (ap standing & lateral) views as it helps me to see whats the knee like. Also please tell me duration of pain and what was the initiating factor for it? what medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. I would like to know whether you have got your inflammatory profile done till now and whether calcium and vitamin d testing/supplementation has been done. Also please let me know what all exercises you are doing on a daily basis. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

My mother is aged 90 years ,her left clavicle broken on 23rd March, taken to an orthopedic she was given brace to wear 21 days and vitamin D and calcium syrup other than paracetamol tab (for use in the event of pain). Now I am not satisfied with outcome of the treatment regime as there appears some lacking in alignment to me. Is there any way to ascertain the state or progress of healing and for corrective further treatment? And how to go about it?

Dear, The treatment for clavicle fracture can be conservative (non-surgical) or surgical. Most patients do well with non-surgical treatment although there will be some overlap of the bones. However usually there is no restriction of function due to the overlap. What is more important is union of the fracture. The other option is surgical treatment with plates and screws. This is usually needed for severe displacement or for those who need early recovery. The risk of non-union is there in both treatment options. If you have further clarifications please visit an orthopaedician near you.

I would like to know in which year was the MMR (Measles Mumps Rubella) vaccine introduced/available to children in India. For someone born in the year 1989 in India, I would like to know whether he/she was given this vaccine (if available back then) or not. Thanks in advance :)

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS

In 1978 the immunization programme in india was renamed as expanded programme of immunization (epi) and then in 1985 became universal programme of immunization when measles vaccine was added in state schedule at 9 months of child age. Mmr is not a part of immunization schedule in state programme but in delhi it was included in 1999. Mmr vaccine is available since more than 3 decades and I am using it since then (tresivac from serum institute). A child in 1989 had the option of getting it depending upon awareness of the parents or the type of medical advice received at the given time. If the immunization file of the subject is available then there should be a mention of it in it. If the sex of the subject is female then rubella vaccine (r in mmr) should have been given by now to prevent any threat to the child from developmental anomalies during pregnancy, in case rubella attack occurs during that period. Anyway, even now if its the case of a female, there is no harm in immunizing a subject with a dose of mmr vaccine. Mmr was introduced in state immunization program of delhi in 1999 as a single dose administered between 15-18 months of age (mmr-i). States of punjab and kerala, and union territory of chandigarh with high routine immunization coverage are possible candidates to incorporate mmr vaccine in their schedule besides goa, puducherry, sikkim and delhi which currently have this vaccine in their state immunization schedules states with immunization coverage less than the above were advised catch up campaigns with measles vaccine.

I have more water content in my body and I couldn't able to tolerate the heel pain and what are all the tips to cure this one.

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
For the heal pain, definitely need to check with condition such as plantar fasciitis or heal spur. Strerching of calf muscle along with fascia stretch would be very helpful, however for the water content need to meet a nephrologist to see if there is any particular issue with water retention.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your knee pain and back pain could be due to some early degeneration setting in your joints due to which there is pain. My advice will be intensive back and knee exercises daily brisk walks for 2-3 km every day adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation to start with gentle anti inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or tab paracetamol can be started provided it suits your body continue with hot saline fomentation 3-4 times in a day at home analgesic spray like dynapar qps spray can be used for local application 2-3 times in a day after fomentation. Let me know in 2-3 weeks time how you are feeling, otherwise we might have to get some blood tests and x rays done for you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
