Joint pain is a common symptom with many possible causes. Joint Pain and Arthritis are the one of the most devastating conditions faced by individuals, particularly elderly women today.

I suffer from GErD from past 4 years as well as cervical spondylosis. From past 2 days I feel shortness of breath, like suffocation and looks like there is no air surrounded and will stop breathing in sometime.

Heat is an effective mean of reducing and relieving pain in cervical spondylosis. You can use hot packs at home. Some exercises like static contractions and strengthening exercises are needs to be done. Isometric contractions of the cervical muscles improve the muscle endurance and tone as the contractions improve the blood supply thereby the nutrition to the muscle is increased and hence muscle strengthening is done. Please see a physiotherapist for these exercises. You may need traction and soft tissue techniques for the management of cs. Postural awareness is very important. As the condition progresses, the abnormality of posture also increases, thus from the initial stage itself, postural awareness through proper advice and education should be planned and initiated by the physiotherapist. Best wishes.

Core strengthening exercises- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Back stretching- lie flat, pull one of the knee forward to chest, hold for 3 seconds, then bring the other knee forward to the chest and again hold for 3 seconds. Then pull both knees towards the chest and hold for 3 seconds. Repeat 10 times each exercise twice a day.

What can I do if have a regular leg pain. M not able to walk properly and even run.
Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation. To relieve mild pain: stay off your leg as much as possible apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down please go to a physiotherapist if: you have pain during or after walking you have swelling in both legs your pain gets worse your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment you have painful varicose veins if you feel the pain is from muscle cramp then you need to drink a lot of water because poor fluid intake (dehydration) may predispose to cramps also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps. Best wishes.

To break that fatigue it is advisable to drink or eat protein and mineral food which would be a reservoir for you to store the energy. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having body pain and laxity through out.

Vitamin k2 comes as combination with calcium and tends to help in calcium absorption, u can take a combination pill like Tab Corcium K2. Besides calcium and vitamin D u also need other pharmacological therapies to increase your bone density based on your Dexa scan resultsK

I am 23 years old male and recently encountered a fracture in my palm. The bone connected to my little finger got fractured in angular manner. Shall I go for a POP or a surgery where a wire will be inserted?

Fellowship in Neurological Rehabilitation, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
Hi, all dislocations or fracture dislocations should to be put back in joint (reduced) and held in joint until healed. Sometimes the injury will pop back into joint and be stable enough to hold in a plaster cast. If so they need careful supervision with repeat x-rays for 2-3 weeks from injury to make sure they do not slip out again. If the joint is not that stable it will need to be held with 1-3 wires passed through the skin known as k wires. These usually protrude through the skin so they can easily be removed in the outpatient's clinic. Some surgeons will bury the wires under the skin. Only occasionally is open surgery required i. E. A formal cut is made on the back of the hand over the injury. The wires typically remain in place for 4-5 weeks. During this time the fracture and wires will need support in a plaster cast either a full cast or a partial cast. Any fingers or parts of fingers not held by the plaster should be moved to reduce stiffness. Most patients do very well following these injuries. After an immobilization period, rehabilitative exercises should be performed to regain strength and mobility and to minimize chronic pain and stiffness. Thanks.

Dietary and other lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure. Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm hg. This eating plan is known as the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. If you're overweight, losing even 3 kgs can lower your blood pressure. Strive for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day.

Injured in accident two months before got fractured base of 4th metatarsal in right foot. Permanent plaster for 26 days but after two months I have done x-ray again but fracture is not joined. Please reply what I have to do, continuous pain while walking.

BHMS

There is a possibility that the bones were not set properly while applying plaster or there is lack of calcium in your body. You can increase your calcium intake by taking milk, curd etc. Or some calcium supplements. Also we can help you with certain homoepathic medicines which help in reuniting bones of fracture.
