Kindly show me a photograph of the affected part. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. To loose weight: step 1-stop taking sugar & fat e. G. Ghee/fried stuff.

Tips For Your Back Pain Problem Solution

MPTh/MPT, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Ahmedabad
Tips For Your Back Pain Problem Solution
Fllow these simple guidelines to keep your back in good shape:

1. Standing… keeping one foot forward of the other, with knees slightly bent, takes the pressure off your low back.

2. Sitting… sitting with your knees slightly higher than your hips provides good low back support.

3. Reaching… stand on a stool to reach things that are above your shoulder level.

4. Moving Heavy Items… pushing is easier on your back than pulling. Use your arms and legs to start the push. If you must lift a heavy item, get someone to help you.

5. Lifting… kneel down on one knee with the other foot flat on the floor as near as possible to the item you are lifting. Lift with your legs, not your back, keeping the object close to your body at all times.

6. Carrying… two small objects (one in either hand) may be easier to handle than one large one. If you must carry one large object, keep it close to your
body.

7. Sleeping… sleeping on your back puts 55 lbs. of pressure on your back. Putting a couple of pillows under your knees cuts the pressure in half. Lying on your side with a pillow between your knees also reduces the pressure.

8. Weight Control… additional weight puts a strain on your back. Keep within 10 lbs. of your ideal weight for a healthier back.

9. Quit Smoking… smokers are more prone to back pain than nonsmokers because nicotine restricts the flow of blood to the discs that cushion your vertebrae.

10. Minor Back Pain… treat minor back pain with anti-inflammatories and gentle stretching, followed by an ice pack.

It seems you are suffering from frozen shoulder syndrome. Kindly show me rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Do hot fomentation ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Do neck & shoulder exercises it may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Surgery is usually not needed in such cases. But if at all it has to be done, you may come to delhi, we have some very good centers that look after this type of problems.

Make sure that the backpack you invest in has a padded back, padded, contoured, shoulder and chest straps, a waist belt, compression straps and reflective materials as these will reduce the pressure on the back, distribute the load to the pelvis and prevent the contents of the bag from digging into the back.

Based upon your symptoms, you may be experiencing some tightness in your muscles. Since it hurts with certain movements it is most likely mechanical and will respond to physiotherapy treatment. A physiotherapist can examine you and make sure that it is mechanical and your upper right back pain is not being caused by something else that needs medical attention. To get some temporary relief applying ice can help relieve pain. It is important to use ice as soon as any pain symptoms appear. Ice should only be used at 20-minute intervals. Anti-inflammatory medications can also alleviate pain and inflammation.

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. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).
