It looks like you are anaemic. And also you have to check with your vitamin and calcium, if the bones are weak then automatically the pain gets triggered more as there is less energy during any metabolic activity.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your injury was around 6 months old and since then all tissues must have healed by now. Did you do a x ray after your initial injury to rule out a bony issue? my advise is: - do intensive ice packs 3-4 times in a day - take a short course of anti inflammatory medication for 5-7 days - start physical therapy like stretching exercises for your plantar fascia initially under supervision of a physical therapist - modify your footwear and try to wear well cushioned sports shoes or leather shoes with insoles to give extra protection to your heels. Normally this should take care of your symptoms, in case pain continues, please let me know. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hello lybrate-user knee pain could be a sign of early osteo arthritis. You should start with quadricep strengthening exercises along with life style changes such as weight loss avoiding squatting and cross legged sitting. Do get a plain X-ray done of your knees and also start wearing knee cap. Any medication can be prescribed only on seeing the condition of the knee.

Hello doctor, I'm suffering from foot drop I got this around 10 years ago when I was 5years old. I had a operation at that age and it was failed and my nerve was damaged due to it I got foot drop. Now I'm fine. I can move my toes but can't lift my foot. Please help me doctor please?

After 10 years of your original injury, now the only alternative is going for tendon transfer surgery. Out of the 3 tendons which bring foot down, one of them is transferred anteriorly. So that instead of pulling the foot down the same tendon will pull the foot upwards. The next operation is fusion of foot joints so that it cannot go down at all.

I am suffering with lower back pain from last 2 weeks, can you please tell me treatment or some tricks to avoid it?

I am suffering with lower back pain from last 2 weeks,
can you please tell me treatment or some tricks to avoid it?
Hi lybrate-user, Lower back pain can happen due to several causes. However at your age it is often due to disc degeneration. This in common terms would mean early stages of spondylosis. An award winning scientific research done by my team revealed has shown that by the time Indians reach 30 years of age, 30 % start showing signs of disc degeneration and a handful of them start having episodes of back pain such as yours. There's no need to get worried as this is a part of the normal physiological process. For pain, I would advice you to take a pain killer twice a day for 5 days. Use hot compress twice daily for 15 mins each time and a gel (oxalgin nano gel) 3 times a day. Apart from this go for a walk twice a day. Avoid bending much and do not lift heavy weights and sit or squat on the floor. Go to a physiotherapist who will teach you core strengthening exercises. While the degeneration can not be reversed, it can be prevented from aggravating. Best of luck!

Mr. Lybrate-user knee joint problem at your age be recovered totally. It may be due to over exertion or injury. Take milk both time morning and evening. Apply medicated oil like maha-narayan oil/ panchaguna oil and do hot fomentation with help of hot water bag. Give some rest to your body. Resolve constipation or any other digestive problem. You can take panchakarma treatment like patra- pottali seka etc. Consult for proper medication.

Dear lybrate-user. If you are suffering pain more than 2 months then I advice you to go for lumbar spine xray. Apply heat fermentation for 10 days. But its better to get inferential and ultrasonic therapy for complete reduction of pain.

Pain arising from the neck and going down the shoulder or the arm could be because of either severe spondylosis or due to a prolapsed intervertebral disc (slipped disc). Do hot water fomentation twice around the neck. Avoid any kind of activity that requires prolonged neck bending. Do neck extension exercises. You can google the following exercises and repeat 10times- twice daily exercises- 1. Neck retraction 2. Retraction with extension 3. Neck strengthening exercises. Always use a pillow under the neck when lying down. If these do not help you. Kindly get yourself checked by a physiotherapist at the earliest.

Hi you can start physiotherapy treatment to strengthen the muscles around the joint, stabilize the joint, and improve your range of motion. The therapist will use techniques such as ultrasound, heat or cold therapy, electrical nerve stimulation, and manipulation. Do reply for private consultation and detailed treatment plan wishing you a good health.

Hi I can understand your problem. 1) apply hot and cold foementation. 2) learn strengthening exercise of quadriceps and hamstring from physiotherapist. 3) do regular streching calf muscles. 4) wear comfortable foot wear. Do share investigation reports if you have, in next consultation.

Try this for joint pains try this. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

Take warm foamentation and stretching exercises of fingers smoothly. Do a posture of namaskar then stretch fingers sideways. Other exercises would be advised in private.
