It's looking like calcaneal spur. You can consult physio. After reducing pain you have to do stretching exercises. Use mcr chappells, avoid walking without chappells, uneven surface etc. You can take bowel of warm water with pinch of salt water up to ankles. Move your foot in warm water for 5 to 10 min daily 3 to 4 times.

I had a doubt feeling uneasy back side of knee. Near ligament. Is it advisable to walk.
What I had to do?
Hello, - yes you can walk but make sure there is nothing like ligamental tear with any history of fall or injury - you can wear crape bandage and take a walk - you can also apply ksheerabala do and take hot fomentation for 15 min to relive from that uneasy feel and strengthen your muscles and ligaments. Thank you.

Avoid lifting heavy weights. When bending down to lift something from below, bend your knees first and then lift the object. You can take homoeopathic medicines for the back pain.

I am a 22 year old female. I have severe backache in my lower back from the past three months. The doctor said it is because of my sitting posture which I have corrected and used various pain relief sprays. But the problem still persists. The pain is moving down my right leg. Is this bad? What should I do?

This is bad. This is due to compression of sciatic nerve and you are developing sciatica. It is due to sitting for longer time or sometimes sitting while bending forward. If the pain is severe you need to take painkillers. But I will suggest you some exercises which releaves the pressure on compressed nerve. As regular intake of painkiller is harmful. Lie down on your back with arms and legs straight (parallel) to the ground/bed. Then slowly raise one leg without folding at knee, other leg will be flat on ground. Hold for 8 to 10 sec, then slowly bring down. Repeat with opposite leg, then with both legs. Each leg 10 times. You will find result in one week.

Hey my name is Manoj Parmar sir. I am 23 years old. I am suffering from sciatica disease. Please treat it forth and forth exercise Regards Manoj parmar.

To manage sciatica pain, you may find that certain positions and activities are more comfortable than others. The proper exercises from a physiotherapist will help reduce sciatic pain. The exercises recommended will depend on what's causing the sciatica. It's important to work with a specialist who has experience working with people with sciatica. It's also important to do the exercises exactly as directed. Here are some home treatments for sciatica which you can follow: -do not bend, lift, or sit in a soft, low chair; the pain will get worse. -try a cold pack to see if it helps the pain. If you don't have a cold pack, use a large bag of frozen vegetables; it makes a good first aid cold pack. -after the cold massages, try alternating with heat from hot bag. -you may feel better lying on your back on a firm surface with a pillow under knees. Another option is lying on side with a pillow between the knees to keep the back straight. Also, a recliner chair is helpful. -do activities one is able to tolerate. Best wishes.
