Please do your recent xray for the better understanding of your case to the respective doctor. You should avoid potato, brinjal, too spicy, salty and oily items. Exercise is must for you. Avoid fast food, carbonated drinks and alcohol. Try doing yoga it has excellent results for joint problem (do under supervision of an expert yoga person) and mild form of stretch exercises. Do not over exert. Maintain your weight and have a correct posture. Check for causes which increase pain and avoid them. Following medicines can be helpful: 1. Yograj guggul 1 tablet three times a day after food 2. Amapachaka vati 1 tablet in afternoon and at night after food 3. Dashamula kwatha/ arishtham after food in morning and night 1 teaspoon 4. Avipattikar churna after food in afternoon 1/2 tea spoon and night 1 tea spoon all the above medicines should be taken with lukewarm water under a supervision of a doctor. Take care. God bless!

Bone Health And Osteoporosis

M. Ch. (Ortho), MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Bone Health And Osteoporosis

Bones are similar to a porous framework which is filled with minerals that make it hard and strong. With age, there is gradual degradation and the mineralized portion is lost, thereby leading to thinning of the bone. The word osteoporosis literally translates to porous bones, which is due to the gradual demineralisation. In addition to the natural ageing process, there are other diseases that can accelerate the demineralization process.

Women are more prone to demineralisation, and after the age of 40, they should take extra precaution to slow down the onset of the condition. The following are some ways to improve bone health and halt osteoporosis in the long run-

  1. Diet: Ensure that your diet has sufficient amounts of vitamin D and calcium. Though calcium is the essential mineral for bone formation, vitamin D is required for the absorption of calcium, and therefore both these elements play a vital role in maintaining the quality of the bones in our body. Most people require about 1,000 mg of calcium and about 500 units of vitamin D for optimal bone health. This requirement goes up slightly in postmenopausal women.

  2. Sun Exposure: In most people, exposure to the sun allows the body to make vitamin D, but careful sun protection prevents this from happening. Also, with age, the body’s ability to form intrinsic vitamin D also declines. The body, therefore, relies on supplements. Most dairy products are good sources of calcium. In addition, spinach, salmon, turnips, and broccoli are some calcium-rich foods. Supplements of calcium carbonate or calcium citrate can be taken if your diet is lacking in calcium. Vitamin D also should be included in the supplementation. The treatment for osteoporosis is incomplete without these two supplements.

  3. Exercise With Weights: The constructive tension that exercise puts on the body helps in bone building, whatever the age may be, which prevents the onset of osteoporosis. Any exercise which improves muscle mass strengthens the bones, and puts stress on the bones is advisable. Since the fractured area due to osteoporosis mainly includes the spine, lower back exercises, yoga, tai chi, and abdominal exercises all work wonders. Pick any of these and do them for 30 minutes three times a week.

  4. Quit Smoking: Continuing to smoke while taking osteoporosis medications is completely useless. Nicotine negates all the effects which defeat the purpose of taking the medication and is as good as taking no medication at all. So if you want the bone thinning to stop, stop smoking.

  5. Alcohol Consumption: While a drink or two per week is permissible, more than this can harm the bones significantly.

  6. Constant Health Watch: Talk to a doctor about how other routine medications (if any) can affect your bone health. Also, identify how frequently you should check your bone mineral density and stick to the schedule.

Bone health and osteoporosis can be managed with some conscious efforts.

It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore.

Dear you need time to practice and have to do warm up exercises and train in a gradual process building your stamina to avoid sports injuries. I think you have knee cap problem or overuse injury to some muscles around your knee. So slow down and apply ice after work up.

I have swelling inmy left leg and it's paining a lot.
Please. Prescribe some medicine for that.
If it is in a joint then gout or infection are commonly considered. Apply cold compress. See a local doctor who can assess your condition. A good family physician will be helpful who may consider referring you to a specialist as needed.

Hi Doctors, I (28y) had L5-S1 fusion on sep 2 2016, till now I have not recovered (the big mistake I did in my life is gone for fusion surgery). I'm able to walk on flat surface and do small stretches on bed, if I walk on bumpy road I'm getting sharp pains in lower back and right leg pain. Even if I cough or sneeze not able to bear sharp pains in lower back, for small jerks also becoming big concerns to me. I was having only back pain before surgery, after surgery my back is too worst and additionally leg pain's :(. I met my surgeon last week and undergone CT scan, my surgeon told everything is in good recovery. But my pains are still there. Still I'm not bending forward as per my surgeon. I haven't informed my relatives and friends about my surgery as I might get recovered soon, now it's almost 5 months, still not able to walk in a way before surgery, people are identifying easily my problem, these are highly frustrating me. Any suggestions over here from when I can start bending forward and how to get rid off sciatica pains, I have attached latest CT scan report. Thanks!

Dear, sorry to hear about the pain you are suffering from but many a times fusion surgery becomes essential in order to prevent further compression of nerves and complete paraplegia. I do not know under what circumstances your doctor advised you the surgery as ct films are visible in the forum. However I would advice you not to forward bending for an year and star back strengthening exercises.

Will it cure by physiotherapy.
Complete tear of acl requires an orthopaedic surgeon intervention. It might be fixed by reconstruction by graft. But it is solely on the discern of orthopaedician. But yes after the surgery physiotherapy plays a major role to put you back in life and to improve your quality of life.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.
