Dear doctor, I met an accident and fractured occurred in right leg on 29th Dec 2014. As per the X ray report it is “fracture lateral malleolus right(closed) with fracture 2nd and 3rd metatarsal(closed)”. Initially,the doctor thought for surgery for ankle injury but another senior Orthopedic surgeon of the same hospital after examining the X ray plate, put a POP BACK Slab for 15 days and as per his version chance of displacement was there. On 13th Jan 2015, another X ray was done and the doctor surgeon wrote in the prescription ” X ray shows good alignment, no displacement”. On the same day synthetic casting was put in place of POP Back slab and I have been told to meet him after one month. I was allowed to walk with two elbow supported crutches without giving any load to the right leg. Now I am off from my office since more than one month.Although I am obeying all the instructions given by the doctor, i am feeling some pain on the ankle fracture occasionally. Pain is like needle pushing and some sorts of inflammation but tolerable. No swelling is there at present.Rarely I feel tolerable pain on metatarsal fractures. Is this pain normal ? Can I join my office using crutches now ? when i can walk on my feet? How many days it will take further to drive car ? Please note that I am now 49yrs, wt-74kgs normal built, no BP and diabetes. Eagerly waiting for your observation, doctor, regards, Jayanta Kr. Bhattacharyya

Hello, I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. I have gone through your case summary. Your injury was on 29th December and it is 2nd Feb today. Since cast was applied on 13th Jan it is also 3 weeks since then. If it is an undisplaced fracture then management is ok. We need to get sequential X Rays to look for any displacement because as the swelling subsides fracture can get displaced because there is looseness in cast. Anyway since conservative management is chosen i would like to have a look at you recent X Rays before giving my verdict.

Dear lybrate user as per your description you are having lumbar spondylitis due to disc bulge or disc protrusion. Surgery is the very last option, you have not mention your correct age, I hope it is not 10 yrs. First of all if it is not very severe start doing bhujang - asana, tad-asana, surya- namaskar, if you cannoy do all the steps of surya namskar, you can skip few, as per your body says. Apply medicated oil on your back and do hot fomentation. Your you are having constipation, take 1 spoon of castor oil with milk at night. Consult for proper medication.

Physiotherapy treatment is better then surgery. Firstly reduce pain by physio then do strength exercise. Avoid long sitting toward bending lifting weight. Posture correction must.

I am 21 year old. I am suffered from back pain problem from last 1 year. I am taking medicine but I am not getting well.
I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.

Peri arthritis is stiffness of shoulder joint. The soft tissues around shoulder becomes tight and prevents free shoulder movement. It can happen in people with diabetes, heart disease or thyroid problem. Start physiotherapy and consult orthopaedic surgeon. 90% get better with out any surgical intervention. Very few need arthroscopy. When you get better continue with shoulder exercises regularly.
