I want to know if I can control my sugar level with exercise I have fracture in my right leg 6 month back can not walk smoothly still. What type of exercise I can do.

Hi, thanks for posting your query. Well yes you can control your sugars with exercise. But know one thing you are on quiet a high dose medication for diabetes so don't except that only with exercise you can control blood sugars and avoid taking medication. With exercise you requirement for medication comes down and still you will require some medication. Best exercise are brisk walking and jogging but since you have limitations doing it, you can try cycling or stepper exercise. Also to some extent upper body exercise like weight lifting etc.

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.

Slipped Disc - Side Effect Free Treatment With Ayurveda!

Slipped Disc - Side Effect Free Treatment With Ayurveda!

Herniated disc, bulged disc, protruded intervertebral disc (PIVD) are the different names of one condition. This is a condition where- disc in between the two vertebral bodies starts peeping out on one side- anterior or posterior. These discs are just like the bags filled with liquid material, which work like shock-absorbent. There are several hard bony vertebrae in the vertebral column and there is plenty of movements with these vertebrae. When we look on one side to other side, we look upwards, downwards or we twist and even we bend forward or backward in each and every condition, there will be a movement in these bones, these discs decide the free movements of the spine. Along with this- when we walk or run there will be shocks and jerks to all these bones and these bags decide that there wont be any kind of jerks in between the bones. So, these discs are of multiple uses.

Our spine is inverted “S” shaped. There are two main curvatures in the spine which are free to move- Cervical and Lumbar curvatures. These curvatures of the spine are maintained due to the spaces in between the two vertebrae. Whenever there is a loss or change (specially reduction) of this space between two vertebrae- pressure will be exerted on the intervertebral discs. This uneven pressure on the disc causes- protrusion/bulge/herniation of the disc- this is the condition known as SLIPPED DISC, in layman language. Why does disc slip

Generally, slipped disc condition is diagnosed by its signs and symptoms. When slipped disc starts exerting pressure on the nerves surround the disc- the nerve will be excited which gives sensation of- Pain, Burning or Numbness in the related area of the nerve. This sensation can travel long far away to the areas, which are being supplied by the nerve and can be limited to a particular location in neck or back even. Sign & Symptoms of Slipped Disc.

Ayurveda about Slipped Disc

Where modern medical (Surgical) sciences believes that this is a problem of just bones and joints of the vertebral disc besides this Ayurveda takes a “Wholistic” (Complete and wholesome) approach towards this and tells that this is a problem at three levels-

  1. Mamsa Dhatu, Asthi Dhatu, Majja Dhatu!
  2. These are different tissue levels according to Ayurveda- Mamsa is muscles, Asthi represents bones and the Majja denotes everything which is in between and in the bones.
  3. Mamsa (the muscles) starts stiffening due to the dryness – improper diet and imbalanced lifestyle and deteriorate the curvature of the spine- which leads to the deterioration of the intervertebral discs.
  4. Asthi (the bony tissue) is affected due to the muscles.
  5. Majja (the disc and the neural tissue- spine) is compressed due to the pressure and all effects.

So, we need to treat the condition, wisely and in a wholesome manner, rather just to removal of the protruded tissues (Laminotomy) and this is the basic reason- there are risks associated to the surgery of the spine and in almost more than 45% cases patients had to go for a second surgery to stay pain free. Why Surgery for spine doesn’t succeed. Secondly, this is a mechanical problem so medicines alone can give you temporary relief rather than the cure-  So better you save your money and invest it on complete cure for the problem, rather than just taking the pain killers and medicines which were indicated in epilepsy to just reduce the signs and symptoms.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, you have to feel the exact location of heel pain, is it in whole heel, or side of the heel or in middle of heel. As you discussed that you started morning walk, check your shoes if you are wearing shoes, before start walk do proper stretching for fore foot, and suggest Contrast bath you can carry on. If still your pain is not relieving you can consult any specialist.

I am 28 year old female and it professional. Since last month I am having pain in left side of the body (left hand, leg, ear, chest and left side of head).

Also the finger tips of left hand get swell and I feel as if there is no sensation in my hand. I feel weakness and shivering sensations. Also suffering from loss of appetite and insomnia. Please suggest which kind of doctor should I consult?

It appears to be a musculo skeletal problem. May I know the profession you pursue. I feel it is a work related problem. Otherwise so many complications cannot come up as all are interrelated to each other. Stress the main reason and learn to manage the same. Plan properly and do what you can. Do not force things on you to achieve everything under the sun. Be realistic and everyone. Has limitations. Try the following sincerely and give the feedback after a week. When the pain is on, press and release the right hand little finger nail on both sides 20 times. While pressing breath in and breath out while releasing. Also measure 3 finger breadth from the wrist crease of your palm and give pressure with your finger or with a blunt edge of a pen 10 times. Apart from this devote some time for breathing and and meditation in the morning. Consult me with your progress for further guidance.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to have persistent knee pain. If there is no history of any injury to the affected knee and there are no s/s of either inflammation or infection like swelling, skin redness, local warmth etc, my advice will be: - to start with intensive physical therapy - gentle anti inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or tab paracetamol whichever suits you - adequate calcium and vitamin d intake - activity modification as in to stop physical activities which increases pain till you feel better let me know in 2-3 weeks time how you are feeling otherwise we will get some x rays and blood tests for you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.

I am suffering from joint pain in my legs due long sitting and pain my back and neck.
Good evening sir your continous sitting will be causing pain in your back and neck. What I would suggest you to do is to start with ankle toe movements. Then you could get up now and then and take a walk. Do not sit for too long. I will suggest you to follow the following exercises. > gentle ankle toe movements. > knee bending up and down while sitting > do a 3 stretches for your back with extension of the spine. > bend foward and try to touch your toes. This will enable good flexibilty to your spine. > rotate your neck. > do 5 shoulder shrugs to release upper neck and back tightness. Once you rech home you could take a hot water fermentation. That should be done only for 15 mins. Kindly do get back to me after a weeks time soo that I can update you on your progress. Thankyou.

Hello Lybrate user it may be due to slip disc problem. So first of all go to a physician and take opinion for MRI. If you are diagnosed with slip disc than take ayurvedic and pancbkarma therapy to cure it.
