This is due to plantar fasciitis. She needs to use soft MCR chappals to walk. Have one at home and one for outside use. Apply volini gel in the area during nights. Give hot water bag compress twice a day. Take a low dose pain killer along with antacid for two weeks.

Degenerative Disc Disorder

MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Jaipur
Degenerative Disc Disorder

Human spine is meant to give proper movements to the body. This is the reason we have 33 pieces of bones in one bone, these pieces articulate with each other and give movement.

But bones cannot articulate smoothly with each other, being rough in structure. This is the reason- nature facilitated us with soft cushion like tissues which give proper articulation and also work as shock absorbers. These cushions are known as intervertebral discs.

When these discs start decaying that is the condition known as- Degenerative disc disorder, as per the data around 10 million people are reported every year in India. This is a condition which is thought to be chronic and incurable but things are not like that in Ayurveda. We have been doing all these cases of degenerative disc disorder since last 11 years.

Sukhayu has an approach, Sukhayu believes that if we can find out the basic root cause of the problem then certainly we can cure the condition.

Here is the approach we follow for the treatment of Degenerative Disc Disease.

What disc looks alike:
intervertebral discDisc is a soft tissue structure, with a jelly-like tissue in the middle, surrounded by many layers of the fibrous ligaments, which encircle this jelly. The jelly in between is known as- Nucleus Pulposus. This jelly is the basic thing which provides movements and push-back mechanism to give a cushioning impact. This jelly is kept alive by the blood supply through small capillaries to these discs.

In layman language- A disc is a balloon-like structure which is filled with jelly.

Degenerative Disc Disease
These discs, lie in the space between the vertebral bodies the space known as intervertebral space. Once this space is reduced due to any reason, it presses the disc.

There are blood vessels in the nucleus pulposus and when extra pressure is created on these arteries, these start bursting due to pressure. So the blood supply to the nucleus pulposus (jelly) is arrested. Due to lack of the blood supply, this jelly starts shrinking and degenerating.  For life, one thing is important and that is “nutrition”. This nutrition means a lot to the different cells of the body.

This condition, where the disc starts degenerating is known as degenerative disc disorder (DDD).

In this case, it is very clear that cause behind the degenerative disc diseases is the extra pressure on the disc. If we press anything beyond its limit, it will certainly cause certain problems to that thing. Same is the story with disc. This is the pressure which destroys the blood supply within the disc and leads to the problem. The blood vessels are the tissues which can be recreated very easily, these are the nerves which are hard (near to impossible, according to chronicity of the condition).

Treatment of  Disc Degenerative Disease
We took the approach of – Revival and Replenishment for the treatment of the degenerative disc disorder. The first thing we do is try to find out the affected muscles and the reason behind their stiffness, which can be dietary “dryness” or it can be bad posture (that we decide through pulse diagnosis). Once we can find the cause then we plan Panchakarma according to the requirement of the patient. The second step in the process of treatment is recreation of the space (intervertebral space) which was designated for the disc- this we do through tailored Yoga Asanas, which we select and modify according to the requirement of the patient.

The whole process of the treatment takes almost 4 to 5 months out of this, a patient needs to stay with us at Sukhayu for almost 21 days maximum and 15 days minimum. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

Hi I can understand your problem but physiotherapy, as physiotherapy is often essential for recovery and can include ultrasound, electric stimulation, range-of-motion exercise maneuvers, stretching, ice packs, and eventually strengthening exercises. Physical therapy can take weeks to months for recovery, depending on the severity of the scarring of the tissues around the shoulder. Visit physiotherapist or consult me via lybrate for detail treatment plan. Wishing you a good health.

Dear lybrate user, a few simple changes and precautions at home can help reduce the pain in your heels.Use an ice pack to reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain. Take an over-the-counter pain reliever. Rest your feet by staying off of them as much as possible for a few days when your heels are aching. Exercise your feet. Some good foot flexing and stretches can help stretch out the plantar fascia, and make it feel better. You can get more information about stretching .Adjust your shoes with inserts that raise the heel and support the arch of your foot. please send feed back.

Osteoporosis Spine Fractures: Know Its Symptoms!

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics, DNB - Orthopedics

Osteoporosis Spine Fractures: Know Its Symptoms!

Osteoporosis is a condition wherein the bones become brittle and weak; so much so that even mildly stressful activities such as coughing, bending over or even a slight fall (such as the one from a high rise chair) can result in fractures. Osteoporosis-related fractures commonly occur in the spine, hip or the wrist. The human body has a continuous mechanism of bone absorption and removal. In case of osteoporosis, the creation of new bones doesn’t happen in accordance with the removal of old bones.

Spinal Fractures:

The bones of the spine get extremely vulnerable to breakage and even cracking open. The fractures in the spine, also known as vertebral compression fractures can cause a sharp stinging pain in the back that may make sitting, standing, or even walking a very tardy task.

Risk Factors:

  1. Increasing age

  2. Abnormally less or high body weight

  3. Smoking

  4. Menopause or low levels of sex hormones

  5. Gender: This disorder is more likely to affect women as compared to men. Also women, who are above 50 are more likely to suffer from this debilitating disorder.

  6. Race is a significant risk factor of osteoporosis. If you are of Asian descent, you are more likely to be affected by it.

  7. Having a family history of osteoporosis will put you at a greater risk of this disorder.

Symptoms:

  1. Fractured or collapsed vertebra causing back pain

  2. A stooped posture

  3. A shrunken appearance (as if one has had loss of height)

  4. Very fragile bones, thus increasing risks of fractures

  5. Severe and sudden pain in the back

  6. Difficulty in twisting or bending the body

Lower spine fractures are way more troublesome as compared to fractures in the upper spine. Fracturing more than a bone in the spine also remains a huge possibility.

Diagnosis and Treatment:

Firstly, an X-ray or a computerized tomography (CT scan) will be done to have a closer look at the bones. A bone density test is another commonly used method of diagnosing osteoporosis.

  1. Steroids and medications: Some medications may be used to prevent or combat osteoporosis. These include alendronate, ibandronate, risedronate and zoledronic acid.

  2. Physical therapy: Just like muscles, bones get stronger too when you exercise. Weight-bearing and muscle- strengthening exercises are the most helpful in this regard and are considered best for the treatment of osteoporosis. Cardiovascular exercises such as walking, jogging or even swimming can prove to be immensely beneficial.

  3. Diet: Make a diet chart that includes high-calcium food items, dairy products such as yogurt, cheese, and low-fat milk, tofu, green vegetables such as collard greens and broccoli, sea fish such as salmon and sardines.

  4. Salt: Limit salt intake

  5. Therapy: Hormone replacement therapy (treatment method consisting of estrogens to alleviate and treat symptoms of osteoporosis) is another method of treatment that can be recommended by the doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopedist.

Health Tip - Bad Posture and Osteoarthritis

FRHS, Ph.D Neuro , MPT - Neurology Physiotherapy, D.Sp.Med, DPHM (Health Management ), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Chennai

Maintaining a right posture is a serious health business so much so that a bad posture can ultimately result in serious morbidity. Right posture doesn't simply mean sitting up straight. Posture refers to the alignment of spine with all its adjoining structures. Younger population is falling prey to bone and joint ailments because of wrong posture. No amount of exercise or therapy can undo 16 hours of bad posture a day. It is important to be mindful throughout the life. Researchers says, a person with good posture maintaining proper alignment through all sitting standing and lying positions. Falling to correct bad posture has significant implications for the skeletal system and leads to osteoarthritis. And hence people should be educated not only on correct posture but also an ergonomic principles at home and place of work.

If a guy having a back pain for about 2 months. A guy of 20 years. What should he do?

If a guy having a back pain for about 2 months. A guy of 20 years. What should he do?
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket. And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back. You may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * surya namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * in diet vegetable protein of cereal, b complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.
