If the bone has not united then the screw might fail soon. Any joint injury usually results in some stiffness in that joint. The primary aim should be to get the bone heal first and then concentrate on movements. If you force the knee the move before the bone unites then the metal work will fail.

Mild disc bulge is nothing serious. As long as you do not have any back pain radiating to your legs then the nerve roots are not getting compressed. Make sure you do not lift heavy objects or strain urself, avoid long distance 2 and 4 wheeler rides, back exercises help.

My both leg joints and bones very much depriciated .How to recover the bones must be strong and which vegetables improve the stability.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You will have to actually tell me what do you mean by weakness, is it that your bone density has gone down, or do you actually feel weakness in muscles of your legs? also what relevant investigations have you done till now to establish any weakness which is there? regarding dietary recommendations, it is important to eat diet rich in calcium, so milk and milk products are recommended, fresh fruits and vegetables and diet rich in proteins also helps. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. SPRING BEDS, FOLDING BEDS OR THICK MATRESS ARE HARMFUL Use no pillow under the head. DO HOT FOMANTATION. Paracetamol 250mg OD & SOS x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab OD x10. Do neck, back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. For emergency treatment contacts your nearest hospital or family doctor. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again.. Do not ignore .It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Vitiligo is caused by a loss of pigment in the skin, due to destruction of pigment-forming cells known as melanocytes. The exact cause of the destruction of these cells is not known. One possible explanation might be that the body's immune system destroys the cells, as in other autoimmune conditions. homeopathic treatment = calcarea carb 30 ( 4 pills ) 3 times / day for 8 days after 8 days revert me for further treatment for complete cure

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. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena Consultant Orthopaedics Fortis Hospital, New Delhi

Before 2 or 3 days. My brother bit me on the upper arm in a playful manner but really hard. From then on. Till now i've been having pain there. I'll feel it only when it comes in contact with something. The skin is totally normal but the pain is on the inside. Yesterday on. The pain extended a little to the right of the arm. But today. The pain is better when compared to before but is still paining. The inside of the pain site seems hard but I don't know whether it's my triceps or something else. Any suggestions on what it is? should I go consult a doctor if the pain persists?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It's actually difficult to comment without examining you but it could be organized hematoma, small abscess, but you can continue with ice packs and gentle anti inflammatory medication, if pain persists or if there is any developing swelling or any s/s of infection like skin redness, local warmth etc, then get yourself checked up by a physician. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Simple Knee Exercises would help to strengthen the quadriceps muscles which is the key muscle. Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping ball underneath the knee and keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone.

Hi, I would like to think that you should get your cervical spine evaluated, if thats fine than it could be due to either nerve entrapment or vascular cause. A short duration course of anti-inflammatory drugs with physical therapy can be tried. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay

Avoid bending in front. Postural correction- sit tall, walk tall. Extension exercises x 15 times x twice daily - lying on tummy, take left arm up for 3 seconds, then bring it down, right arm up for 3 seconds, bring down. Bring right leg up, hold for 3 seconds, bring it down. Then right leg up and hold for 3 seconds and bring it down. Repeat twice a day- 10 times.

Gout is a multisystem disease. The more it is left properly untreated more no of joints can be involved, it can cripple you, it can affect your heart and kidneys and kill you. It usually affects only one joint to start- see first two photographs - acute sudden attack at base of great toe. But later on multiple joints including hand joints can be affected. It is a devastating disease.
