My name is sunil dutt. I am 50 years old man and I have backache pain my problem very serious please help me.
Sir, there can be many reasons for back pain and lots of things we need to know before suggesting exact measures, this much information is not enough. Still, for the time being apply heat by using hot water bags or electrical heating pad, but not more than 15-20 mins on the painful area, twice a day. Apply muscle relaxants like volini spray, take rest, don't lift anything heavy, don't be in a particular position continuously for more than 30-45 mins, except while sleeping at night.

I advise you to take ayurvedic treatment for knee pain if she has not taken earlier. Vata imbalance is the cause of joint pain according to ayurveda. U should take tablet joddaram one tablet three times daily. Tablet mahayograj guggul one tablet three times daily. Apply mahamash oil on knees. U can msg me in my consult if you have any concern.

Frozen shoulder is otherwise called as adhesive capsulitis. The capsule gets contracted and tight and inflammation ensues. If not taken care of early with physio and exercises the pain continues and movement gets further restricted. Analgesics and physio is the key. Please get in touch for any further assistance.

Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis) Relieved By Homeopathy

Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis) Relieved By Homeopathy

What is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia is the flat band of tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. If you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed). Then your heel or the bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk.

Plantar fasciitis is common in middle-aged people. It also occurs in younger people who are on their feet a lot, like athletes or soldiers. It can happen in one foot or both feet.

CAUSES:

Plantar fasciitis is caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch. Repeated strain can cause tiny tears in the ligament. These can lead to pain and swelling. This is more likely to happen if:

  • Your feet roll inward too much when you walk (excessive pronation).
  • You have high arches or flat feet.
  • You walk, stand, or run for long periods of time, especially on hard surfaces.
  • You are overweight.
  • You wear shoes that don't fit well or are worn out.
  • You have tight Achilles tendons or calf muscles.

SYMPTOMS:

Most people with plantar fasciitis have pain when they take their first steps after they get out of bed or sit for a long time. You may have less stiffness and pain after you take a few steps. But your foot may hurt more as the day goes on. It may hurt the most when you climb stairs or after you stand for a long time.

If you have foot pain at night, you may have a different problem, such as arthritis, or a nerve problem such as tarsal tunnel syndrome.

DIAGNOSIS:

Your doctor will check your feet and watch you stand and walk. He or she will also ask questions about:

  • Your past health, including what illnesses or injuries you have had.
  • Your symptoms, such as where the pain is and what time of day your foot hurts most.
  • How active you are and what types of physical activity you do.
  • Your doctor may take an X-ray of your foot if he or she suspects a problem with the bones of your foot, such as a stress fracture.

How is it treated?

No single treatment works best for everyone with plantar fasciitis. But there are many things you can try to help your foot get better:

1)Give your feet a rest. Cut back on activities that make your foot hurt. Try not to walk or run on hard surfaces.

2)To reduce pain and swelling, try putting heel alternately in cold and hot water for 1 -1 minute.(10-15 minute process)

3)Do toe stretches, calf stretches and towel stretches several times a day, especially when you first get up in the morning. (For towel stretches, you pull on both ends of a rolled towel that you place under the ball of your foot.)

4)Get a new pair of shoes. Pick shoes with good arch support and a cushioned sole. Or try heel cups or shoe inserts. Use them in both shoes, even if only one foot hurts.

This is only due to excessive sitting. Massage calf muscles daily with coconut oil, followed by hot fomentation. Don't sit for long periods, walk after some time. While sitting also move your toes. It will keep the blood circulating.
