Kindly show me a photograph of the affected part. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful 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.

I am suffering from back pain and shoulder pain since past 3 days. It is intolerable. What should I do?

I am suffering from back pain and shoulder pain since past 3 days. It is intolerable. What should I do?
Keep ice which will reduce the inflammation and that will there by reduce the pain anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired that can also be reason to have frequent pain in the whole body especially in the back bone. Once the oxygen levels in the blood comes down it automatically leads to improper functioning of the joints and muscles. It is also due to vacuum created in the joints as once the body lacks oxygen automatically the body becomes arid and that is one reason to get frequent pain the body ie. Back bone. The hip muscles become tired thereby straining in a day with any physical activity might lead to back bone pain. And also wear mcr chappals which will help you to prevent the weight falling on the hip while standing. This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. Ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. This is due to the improper posture as while sitting in front of the computer it leads to neck pain and thereby it leads to shoulder pain. We suggest neck mobilization exercises that would reduce the stress falling on the shoulder. We also suggest patients to do shoulder mobilization exercises ie. General shoulder movements/neck movements which will help you to improve the blood circulation.

I am a woman of about 51 years, having diabetes treatment regularly. Once a year, when the season changes from winter to summer in the months of March-April, I get pain in the back followed by acute pain in the lower back side, abdomen, corner of thighs and neck. With time, the pain increases and becomes so acute that I couldn't even move out of my bed without any help. For relief, I take painkillers and hot fomentation regularly but the pain eases a little bit and then again increases. I also get constipation with backache, say I go to pass stools after two days often. It usually happened to me during my young age also but that time, pain remains for two- three days only and after taking lot of bed rest and fomentation, I am relieved. But now the condition is becoming worse day by day. After my periods are stopped in the beginning of 2014, the pain is critical. I regularly take shelcal and calcijoint (once a week) along with diabetes tablet. Kindly guide me what precautions to take and which tablets to continue so that the worse situation doesn't come in the next changing season. Thanks in advance!

It is important to meet orthopaedic surgeon for your pains. May be you can do BMD (Bone mineral density) study before meeting him or after he advises. For constipation either regular use of fibre or occasional use of purgative. If you decide for fibre you may contact me as even with distance I can help you to get good quality of same.

I have problem of back pain over many yers. These problem totally destroyed my life, how can I solve it. Please help me!

I have problem of back pain over many yers. These problem totally destroyed my life, how can I solve it. Please help me!
Back pain may be due to strain, sprain, weather change etc. *Avoid bending forward while working on lap top or for any other work. *Don’t sit continuously working on laptop etc. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict bike driving as far as possible. *Don’t carry laptop or any load on your shoulder. Carrying very light loads equally with both hands is better *Sit straight so that back bone gets proper support. A dining chair is better than a laid back sofa. *You can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good *Soft bed will not give proper support to your back bone. Hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow is better. *Get yourself tested whether you have spondylitis problem. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take Calc fluor 200--once daily in the morning.

Physiotherapy Management of Ankylosing Spondylitis

Physiotherapy Management of Ankylosing Spondylitis

In the early stages of the disease a flattening of the lumbar curve may occur. Then, with increasing pain and a flexed posture, the thoracic curve can become more accentuated. If unchecked, this can be followed by a loss of cervical curve and a protracted cervical spine develops as an attempt to compensate for the forward flexion. As the hips become more flexed, hip flexion contractures can occur and the knees flex to improve balance and vision. Poor posture results in muscle fatigue, weakness, disability and a poor body image.Good management of the disease should prevent poor posture from occurring,although any fusion may be delayed and not halted. Note especially the knee flexion and hip flexion deformities. The reason for these deformities is that,if the spine is constantly flexed, the patient would fall over forwards. By flexing the knees and hips, the person shifts the line of gravity back within the base to become more stable.

AIMS OF PHYSIOTHERAPY MANAGEMENT:

The overall aims are to minimize deformity and disability and to improve well being, thereby maintaining normal function and improving the person’s quality of life. 

Specifically these aims can be achieved by:  

  •  Advising on postural  awareness and ergonomics  
  • Reducing pain 
  • Maintaining and improving posture and function by a) increasing mobility of spinal, costo vertebral and peripheral joints, b) strengthening the antigravity muscles,     and c) stretching specific muscle groups 
  • Improving and maintaining cardiovascular fitness 
  • Monitoring posture, mobility and function through regular assessment 
  • Devising and monitoring a home program of specific exercises that are suitable and consistent with  long-term compliance  
  • Imparting knowledge about the disease and its management Improving the person’s psychological state, coping strategies and exercise compliance.
  •  

PAIN  IN  ANKYLOSING  SPONDYLITIS

Pain may vary from low grade discomfort to intense pain. 

Typically, pain is aggravated and is often reduced by exercise. The perception of pain can be influenced by several factors, including fatigue. 

Physiotherapy modalities such as ultrasound, dry needling, and transcutanous nerve stimulation, mega pulse and gentle spinal mobilization can be effective, especially for localized pain.

If the person has not exercised recently, exercises will need to be commenced gradually and the person warned that initially they may provoke pain. 

Wearing supportive shock-absorbing shoes can decrease the jarring effect of walking on hard surfaces and reduce the likelihood of aggravating the pain. Hot packs can reduce pain.

Knee Pain and Exercise Therapy

Health Tip Knee Pain and Exercise Therapy

 

Knee pain is second most pain next to back pain in middle age. It could be due to physical injury or by pathological reasons. And correct alignment should be maintained in sitting walking or standing involving body pressure to the limbs expecially to knees. In case of pathological causes should be watched and followed to control infections or to improve immunological components in the body to support the efficiency in managing the resistance against all agents

 

Exercise science or therapy plays a very vital role in controlling the pain and to reduce symptoms. The foremost exercises are to strengthen the quadriceps and hamstring muscles, which could be done by keeping a pillow or small bedsheets preferably cotton beneath knee and pressing hard for 5 to 7 seconds and repeating the same for 15 times resting for 3 second in every repitations (see the pic attached). And hamstring muscle strengthening by lifting straight into 90% without bending the knees and holding the same for 3 to 5 seconds as possible and repeating it for 10 to 15 times for one duration, better to do for twice daily in stipulated time regularly, along with calcium rich and vitamin d3 in sufficlient level.

 

For pain even hot and cold water fomentation for thrice a day for 5 days regularly can be given to receive locally, for worst pain management physiotherapy interferential therapy (ift) and vacuumtherapy can be given for 7 to 10 days followed by strengthening exercise under guidance from physiotherapist
