Sacralization of l5 vertebra with rudimentary l5-s1 disc. >bilateral neural foramina are compromised at l5 causing impingement on bilateral exiting l4 nerve roots due to spondylotic grade I spondylolisthesis & pseudo disc herniation. Following this I was on medication consisting of pain killers, antibioticaand calcium tablets. Now I am not using any drug. I donot want to go for surgery. I am havinf constant blow back pain due to which myu movement is very much restricted. I am unable to sit on the floor and even with effort I sit, it is very difficult to get up. Can you please suggest a follow up action so that my pain is reduced and I will bwe able to move without much pain. Thanks.

Not all patients of backache & pain joints need surgery. Most of them can be managed without operation rule out vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Physiotherapy usually helps any way take caldikind plus (mankind) 1tab odx10days paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days it may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Diabetes must be controlled beyond any shadow of doubt.

Most probably you are suffering from oa of knee knee surgery-total knee replacement (tkr) is quite safe & gives uniform results. Surgery should be done when patient is still active & will be able to take benefit of surgery. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. Kindly show me x rays before a final decision can be taken. You will be thoroughly investigated before surgery is under taken. Risk in surgery is less than the risk in crossing road.

I have knocking sound from my knees whenever i move it. suggest ways to overcome this.?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Chennai
Knocking sounds around your knees. Firstly we need to know your age. If your elderly the sounds can be crepitus and be a part of arthritis. However if you're young it could be just a snapping noise from soft tissue structures around the kneecap. If these noises are not associated with pain you need not worry about it. However to reduce the noise you might need to do exercises to strengthen the knee cap. Clicking noises are due to cartilage tear and might warrant further investigation like mri and usually associated with mechanical symptoms and pain.

Hi did you mean tetanus (tt)? tetanus symptoms usually show up 4 to 21 days after you've been infected with the bacteria that cause the infection. Most commonly, symptoms start after about 10 days, but it can be as little as one day or as long as several months.

What really sciatica is?
Delhi Backpain Physiotherapy
Now lets try to understand it.
Sciatic nerve is the thickest nerve of the body.It originated from lower back and supply to the buttocks , thighs ,legs and foot.
When there is an irritation to this nerve causing inflammation and hence the symptoms.

Sciatica has a group of complaints of patient suffering called symptoms. It affects one or sometimes both side of the body.
The symptoms for sciatica can be pain, sensation problems like tingling, numbness and may be weakness in muscles supplied by this Sciatic nerve.
Symptoms can be pain for some patients but for some it may be sensory problems.
It may be localized to a point or may move down to buttock and feets.
Where ever the Sciatic nerve supplied symptoms may be present depending on the site where pinching of nerve happens.
Some peoples have pain for only a week but for others it may take long duration.
If left untreated then there is  chances  permanent damage due to constant irritation.
The best way to manage sciatica is to remove pressure on the nerve and maintain your spine curves.
Physiotherapy provides an effective way to manage pain and focus on nerve treatment,  by specific nerve gliding maneuver and core strengthening exercises to prevent any future symptoms.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Although there can be many causes for heel pain like spurs, fascial inflammation, infection, trauma etc but normally plantar fascitis is the most common cause especially if there is no history of any injury or any s/s of inflammation or infection like swelling, skin redness etc. This kind of pain is usually due to inflammation of your heel fascia. It is chronic pain which get aggravated especially when you walk more and is better with rest. Treatment modalities are aimed at relieving inflammation of the fascia, like ice packs, physical therapy, footwear modification and anti-inflammatory therapy. Kindly get a few blood tests done empty stomach and send reports across to me: esr, crp, serum uric acid levels and serum vitamin d levels 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.

Why one should consult to Physiotherapist?

Do you know most of the low back pain, Neck pain, Arthritis, Sciatica, and other Spinal cord related problems can be treated without surgery. Exercise may be the most effective way to speed recovery and help strengthen Neck back and abdominal muscles. Maintaining and building muscle strength is particularly important for persons with skeletal irregularities. Physical therapists can teach you some gentle exercises that help keep your muscles moving and speed the recovery process.

I have pain beside my spinal cord. Maybe I am sitting in front of computer for a long time. Dont know if I have to do an mri. Let me know.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
Mri is not your decision. Yes, back pain could be due to prolonged sitting in front of a computer. Anyway (a) sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. (b) use no pillow under the head. (c) kindly take biod3 max 1 tab dailyx10 paracetamol 250mg od & sos x5days (d) do back (spine)/shoulder/knee exercises (e) make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take (f) do not ignore it. It could be beginning of a serious problem. (g) if no relief in 4_5 days, then contact me again.
