Continue physio it will take time even 1-2 months. Exercise against pain.This will reduce pain this condition works like that. Pain kills pain. Avoid jerkey exercise movements can cause more injury, it should be rhythmic movements. The movement exercise initially has to be given by qualified physio.Keep going and it will be fine.

Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain: -stop normal physical activity for the first few days. This will help relieve your symptoms and reduce any swelling in the area of the pain. -apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. --while sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back for the first 6 weeks after the pain begins. -avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -stretching and strengthening exercises are important. But, starting these exercises too soon after an injury can make your pain worse. -some physiotherapy treatment like ift can give you some relief. -a physical therapist can tell you when to begin stretching and strengthening exercises and how to do them.

Hair fall cannot be cured completely with any shampoo or creams which will give temporary relief. You need to go for the treatment of the cause with homoeopathic method.

Cold & cough often means low immunity. Start putting anu tailam 2-2 drops daily on nose. Start taking siva syrup 10 ml bd. This will improve the immune system & you will bot get frequent infections. Take 1 amla everyday.

If pain is not improving and numbness increasing, surgery may help, but if you want non surgical treatment try at least for 3 months before resorting to any other treatment.

Hello, First of all its very bad habit of not drinking much of water. Human body needs much water. If water intake is less kidneys had to retain water and produce concentrated urine which leads to salt precipitation and stone formation. Which causes pain. Pls get your sonography done and feel free to share your reports with me. Thanks.
