This is because of plantar fascitis. Sometimes may also be because of overweight. You seem to be overweight. But that causes pain on prolonged standing. Do exercises for stretching tendo achilles, ankle and toe and calf stretching. This works wonders.

I have little fracture in my back (l5s1) is there any cure except operation?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist,
It usually does not need operation. 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.

Hi I can understand your problem 1) avoid activities that make your symptoms worse 2) apply ice packs 3) start physiotherapy treatment as electrotherapy will reduce pain inflammation 4) exercise and mannual therapy will help in painfree movement. Please describe your problem in detail and do share related reports and prescription if you have. Best wishes.

I'm having pain in legs what could I do.?

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist,
I'm having pain in legs what could I do.?
Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do streching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you dont get relief consult physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

Why does the severe nukkle breaking in the khnees happens to my son 15 years old. What would be the problem?

Hi please thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am dr akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Please usually sounds from knee can come from uneven bony surfaces due to cartilage degeneration, tight ligaments inside a joint etc. Please if it is not associated with any pain or swelling in associated joint, then it is no cause for concern. But if so, then we will have to examine your child and maybe make appropriate investigations to see the joint. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I can actually advise you and give an idea on how to approach your back pain issue but for hair loss, you will have to consult a dermatologist for an evaluation and further management. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc and with no other associated constitutional symptoms like evening rise in temperature, loss of weight, excessive sweating at night etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. 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.

If all the tests seem to be normal and symptoms persists, it can be of a functional origin or a stress origin, for which you need to consult an ENT .Blood test also could be much usefull in this context.
