Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias 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. Thanks & regards

Hi, you might have sprained your ankle while playing. Is there any swelling as well? best is to do cold fomentation with a flexible gel cold pack for 15 min. At least 2-3 times a day. If pain is on walking you can use crepe bandage or ankle support. Wear sports shoe for couple of days to provide compression and shock absorption. After doing all this still your pain persist than consider visiting Dr. In person without delay.

Significance of this pain is if their is any swelling also and frequently rising from low level stool, overweight can also give rise to knee strain. Since you are not having mentioned your age and weight. But we can send you certain knee exercise to strengthen your knee joint.

Go to any ayurvedic panchkarma centre and try kati vasti treament along with basti chikitsa. And when you get symptomatic relief then try some yogasans. Yogasans are the ultimate solution for any back pain. Medicine or surgery can give you relief for one time but reoccurrence can be managed only with yogasans.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

This could be due to lumbar spondylosis with nerve root compression. Control diabetes & rule outvit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take paracetamol 250mg od & sos bio d3 max 1 tab od x 10 days you will need other supportive medicines also. Do back (spine) exercises make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you may have to use lumbosacral support for some time. Avoid painful act/activities. Take medicines as prescribed it may have to be further investigated. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Dear, it is not your age for knee pain anyhow get it properly checked and consult a orthopedic surgeon who will guide you properly. You can take tendocare one tab tds for 15 days with calcium and d3 sachets and glucosamine tablet twice daily. And do morning walk regularly and knee exercises with yoga in routine, you will be fine.

Try putting hot packs to the painful area for 15 mins then do stretching exs for calf hamstring snd quadriceps muscles and then put ice for 15 mins also find the root cause pf pain. Sometimes its referred from the back. Physiotherapy can help. Good luck.
