I am 50 years old. I am suffering from all joints pain last 20 years. What should I do?
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I need to know the elaborate history from you so that I can understand cause of pain, duration of joint pains and any associated symptoms like stiffness etc. There is a workup for polyarthralgia (multiple joint pains) which needs to be done if history and clinical examination point to it. At this age I would like you to get some tests like cbc, esr and crp levels done. Also ra factor, ant ccp, ana levels antibodies need to be done. I also need hla b 27 levels, thyroid profile and calcium, vitamin d levels done. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Dear you are suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee joints. You will have to reduce your weight drastically by what ever means (consult a dietician). You must change your life style. Use a commode and avoid stairs. Learn exercises from a physiotherapist and spare time for doing them as you spare time for bathing, pooja or eating. They are simple and can be done any where. Even in office and while waiting for bus or metro. Do hot fomentation and apply a pain killer gel and support your knees with 6" crepe bandages 2 for each knee. Take a sachet of collaflex for about 3 months and a pain killer sos. If of no avail. Consult an ortho. Surgeon and get investigated and x-rayed. Take care.

Physiotherapist, Noida
I have a problem in my leg when I stand there is a so much pain please help me give me a solution.
For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise. Hamstring stretching towel hamstring stretch lie on the back, supporting the thigh with the hand or with a towel wrapped around it. Slowly straighten the knee until a stretch is felt in the back of the thigh, trying to get the bottom of the foot to face the ceiling, one leg at a time. Hold the position initially for 10 seconds, and gradually work up to 20 to 30 seconds. Seated hamstring stretch while sitting at the edge of a chair, straighten one leg in front of the body with the heel on the floor. Then, sit up straight and try pushing the navel towards the thigh without leaning the trunk of the body forwards. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds repeat 3 times for each leg.

I am 73 years old and I have back/knee pains. What I can do is at this stage knee can be replaced or not ?

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Hello, first of all we' ve to know what is the the cause behind your pain, if its muscle weakness start strengthening. If it is joint wear and tear becos of your weight try to reduce weight. Or if it is an vitamin level is low then we' ve to try balance them. So in case your x-ray shows that your joint is worn out and all these above things doesn' t help then surgery would be the option. So go to an physiotherapist and take all the reports what you' ve, they will suggest you accordingly. Dr. Avanthi Prabhakar.

So simple Always start your day with streched and exercises is must. Atleast you need to have bend and strech your spine for 10 time a day. Never sit or stand for longer time and never hump your back always see to that your spine straight. No need of any oinments. If so heavy pain just crush drumstick leaves and apply on painful area. Take care follow regularly.

Spinal cord injury of paraplegic
Who best treatment
1 stem cells therapy
2 physiotherapy.
There is no proven benefit of stem cells in spinal cord injury, its still at experimental stage. Please do not fall in trap as lot of websites claim to offer cure with stem cells. Physiotherapy helps in keeping joints supple but unfortunately till date there is nothing we can do to accelerate/initiate neurological recovery in spinal cord injury.

Hi I have a pain in my neck from Saturday. I have consulted a doctor and as per the xray and diagnosis he informed there is a slight tear ( or scratch ) in the disc of upper portion of spinal chord. Just below the neck. I find very difficult to sleep in any position. I have the xray image. Kindly suggest me your best advice. I can send the X ray image as well

MBBS
General Physician, Indore
If your xray is there can you send me. But as per your pain xray is not suggestive of any type of tear in disc because disc is not visible in xray. And as per my suggestion you should do an MRI of cervical spine to get the confirmation of disc tear. Thanks

Hi, being in the it industry, I know that you have to sit for long hours. To prevent such problems you have to do two things, 1) take short breaks of 2-5 every 30 mins if you can or hourly breaks. And 2) adjust your work station and chair according to your height. If you continue like this, you are prone to get stress injury. So, I suggest you to take corrective steps right away.

Shoulder Pain Care - 4 things you must not ignore!

Shoulder Pain Care - 4 things you must not ignore!
Care for shoulder pain and related problems

Shoulder problems usually happen because of internal problems or external trauma. People who are into any form of manual labour, pick up a lot of heavy things regularly or play sports experience shoulder pain at some point of time or other. Shoulder pain can be detected by physical examination, mri, x-ray, ultrasound and medical history.

The most common types of shoulder problems are arthritis, fracture, dislocation, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff tear, and rotator cuff disease. Cures for the different shoulder pains are different. Follow these simple ways to help you manage the pain.

1. Rest the hurtful shoulder: you need to take ample rest. Using the arm which is affected is not a good idea and needs to be avoided. If your job involves manual labour, it is advised that you stay at home to rest.

2. Ice pack healing: applying ice pack on the wound is also advised around 3-4 times in a day. This varies as per the kind of shoulder pain, so doctor's advice must be followed.

3. Be consistent with exercise: depending upon the source of pain, physiotherapist will advise certain sets of shoulder exercises. It is very important that they should be performed diligently for fast recovery.

4. Support it well: wearing a sling is extremely important and should not be taken lightly at any point of time. A good support will ensure there is no mislocation and faster recovery.

You must have your dinner at least two hours before going to bed. Get your blood tested for CBC, Sugar, uric acid, thyroid, & vitamin D 3, and urine for routine and microscopic examination.
