You may be suffering from disc problem. I need to look your MRI Spine lumbosacral region and investigation like TLC, DLC, CRP, HLA B-27. Maybe the slip disc is compressing your nerve resulting numbness. Medicine may be of some help. Non operative treatment include TFSI, Disc Fix and Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar discectomy (PLED) are now available. PLED is one the latest alternative to surgery which is performed percutaneous through a small hole in skin less than 1/2 inch, no blood loss, using local anaesthesia and you will be ambulatory on next day ,need hospitalisation for max. Three days .Facilities for PLED is available at few private hospitals, not done in most of the Medical colleges. If you are suffering from Osteoporosis you need medication.

Dear lybrate user, headache, shoulder pain with known history of cervical spondylosis can occur either in 2 cases. Cervicogenic or tension type headache or due to spondylosis itself where superior segment may give rise to headache and lateral nerves trapezitis (commonly seen with cervical facetal arthritis). Go for conservative treatment for few days if there is no relief consult either interventional pain specialist or orthopedician trained in spine for through examination and further treatment. Once you know the diagnosis it can be treated easily.

You seem to be suffering from coccydynia ie pain around the coccyx or tail bone. For that avoid sitting on hard surfaces and do a sitz bath ie heat therapy to that area by sitting in a vessel full of hot water 10- 15 mins upto 3 times a day. Besides that you can start on some analgesics for 2-3 weeks.

Hand is Not Working Properly After Radial Head Removal Surgery Even After One & Half Year Dear Sir, My(Age 25). On 3rd January 2015, I faced a accident in which my left hand's radial head got damaged. A piece of head cracked inside. I went to the doctor and he said that it needs surgery once the swelling goes down. After waiting more than 10 days doctor decided for operation in which he told me that "it's just gonna so simple and I will just take out the piece of broken radial after which you just have to face the pain of just 2-3 stitches" But when doctor checked all conditions of my left hand he decided to break and remove the head. The operation went successfully in which I got 10 stitches. Now after more than one & half year my hand is still not working properly. I am not able to use straight hand in 180 degree and it is now on 135 degree.� Doctor consulted to take the physiotherapy after which I went approx one month but still I am not able to make my hand straight. I went again to my doctor and he told me for stop therapy and for exercise at home. I am doing exercise daily but not feeling any improvement. However after the therapy my hand started movement as up-down, wrist movement of 360 degree and can use flat hand. Please suggest me what I can do more to make my hand 180 degree. I am not happy and it is becoming reason of depression for me day-by-day. Please guide me or I am thinking to go for another surgery for it. Regard's

If there is lot of swelling wait for two weeks to settle down and wear a knee brace or immobilizer and definitely you will need surgery for that as torn meniscus will cause arthritis if not removed and acl should be reconstructed if ruptured surgery is safe and you should opt for surgery.

Home remedies for joint pain.

Alternating hot and cold compresses can also help ease joint pain. Heat therapy helps decrease pain, increase blood flow and relax sore muscles and joints. Cold therapy reduces inflammation and numbs the areas around the affected joint.
1. Wrap both compresses in separate towels before using them. They should not be applied directly to the skin.
2. Place the hot compress on the affected area for about three minutes.
3. Remove the compress and immediately put a cold compress in its place for about one minute.
4. Repeat the process for 15 to 20 minutes a few times daily until you get relief.
Note: do not use heat therapy if the affected area is red, hot and irritated. Do not use cold therapy if you have circulatory problems
