My aunty us 40years old she is suffering from sever back pain and leg pain what to do.

My aunty us 40years old she is suffering from sever back pain and leg pain what to do.
Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation. To relieve mild pain: stay off your leg as much as possible apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down please go to a physiotherapist if: you have pain during or after walking you have swelling in both legs your pain gets worse your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment you have painful varicose veins if you feel the pain is from muscle cramp then you need to drink a lot of water because poor fluid intake (dehydration) may predispose to cramps also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps. Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain: -stop normal physical activity for the first few days. This will help relieve your symptoms and reduce any swelling in the area of the pain. -apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. --while sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back for the first 6 weeks after the pain begins. -avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -stretching and strengthening exercises are important. But, starting these exercises too soon after an injury can make your pain worse. -some physiotherapy treatment like ift current can give you some relief. -a full history of your problem should be taken and your movements assessed by a physiotherapist. Please consult a physiotherapist for the same.

Hello lybrate-user gelatin has very limited role in rebuilding lost cartilage. It will be helpful in preventing further degeneration however if the knee is really bad you should consider a Total Knee Replacement.

As per your complain it seems there is sudden strain in your back muscles. Not to worry. Let me help you with some precautions and treatment that will help you to recover soon. Precautions: 1. Avoid forward bending, if required then bend your knees first and then bend forward. 2. Avoid weight lifting. 3. Sit in chairs or car seats with proper back support. 4. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your basck like sidelying. 5. Get enough vit d from sun as vit d keep bones strong including spine, 6. Drink plenty of water to enhance the inter vertebral disks 7. Avoid standing in the one position for a long time. 8. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back. Physio care: I would recommend you for I-care treatment that is especially for back or neck pain. Rest required but it doesn't mean a complete bed rest. Do not over exert your body. Work take rest and then work so that you do not feel tired and started paining. Treatment- 1. Apply ice or heat which ever suits you directly to the area of low back pain will decrease swelling and inflammation, and ease your discomfort. Apply it for 10 to 15 minutes only. 2.Relaxing for 5 minutes after ice or heat treatment. Massage - Ask someone to massage your painful area using fingers or thumb. Massage using kneading technique. Slightly press the thumb and start rotating as it helps to induce relaxation, relieve pain, and reduce levels of stress chemicals, such as cortisol and noradrenaline. It will give you pain relief for time being. 3. After massage again relax for 5 min and apply any pain relieving ointment eg - volini or oraflame gel etc. Make sure not to do massage with the gel, it should not penetrate the body. Just a topical application of gel should be done. 4. Again relax your body for 5 minutes and perform some normal back extension and hamstring stretching exercises to get relief from your pain. While performing exercises if pain occurs then would recommend you to stop doing exercise. Massage or slightly rub the painful area and consult your near by physio to diagnose the actual cause of the pain as he/she can guide you proper exercise plan which will be beneficial for you after checking grade of your back pain. For any doubt please contact right away. Get Well Soon Best Regards

JOINT DISORDERS

JOINT DISORDERS
Joint Disorders
A ‪#‎joint‬ is where two or more bones come together, like the ‪#‎knee‬, ‪#‎hip‬, ‪#‎elbow‬, or ‪#‎shoulder‬. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or ‪#‎diseases‬, including
1. ‪#‎Arthritis‬ - inflammation of a joint. It causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. Over time, the joint can become severely damaged.
2. ‪#‎Bursitis‬ - inflammation of a fluid-filled sac that cushions the joint.
3. ‪#‎Dislocations‬ - injuries that force the ends of the ‪#‎bones‬ out of position
Treatment of ‪#‎JointProblems‬ depends on the cause. If you have a ‪#‎SportsInjury‬, treatment often begins with the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) method to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed healing. Other possible treatments include pain relievers, keeping the injured area from moving, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery. For arthritis, injuries, or other diseases, you may need joint replacement surgery to remove the damaged joint and put in a new one.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
5 ways to boost bone strength early.

Monitor your diet. Get enough calcium and vitamin D, ideally through the foods you eat. Although dairy products may be the richest sources of calcium, a growing number of foods, such as orange juice, are calcium?fortified. Fruits, vegetables and grains provide other minerals crucial to bone health, such as magnesium and phosphorus.
Maintain a reasonable weight. This is particularly important for women. Menstrual periods often stop in women who are underweight ? due to a poor diet or excessive exercise ? and that usually means that estrogen levels are too low to support bone growth.
Don?t smoke, and limit alcohol intake. Smoking and too much alcohol both decrease bone mass.
Make sure your workouts include weight?bearing exercises. Regular weight?bearing exercise like walking, dancing, or step aerobics can protect your bones. Also include strength training as part of your exercise routine.
Talk with your doctor about your risk factors. Certain medical conditions (like celiac disease) and some medications (steroids and others) can increase the chances that you will develop osteoporosis. It?s important to talk with your doctor privately.

I am 23 year old male and i have problem with backpain from last 2 year. I am very weak personality. what would I do?
Homeopathy is one of the most important and effective therapy for back pain. Homeopathy produces excellent results in backache treatment without producing any side effect and is extensively used in all over the world. Homeopathy is a natural system of healing and that is why it can heal whole symptoms of illnesses and it also cure the illness from its root. Tips for backache: heavy objects should be pushed rather than pulled. The weight of the objects should be taken in your bent legs and arms and not in your back. During an acute attack sleep with a pillow under the knees. Choose shoes that offer good support in the arch and have low, but not flat, heels. Prop up one foot on a box or low stool when you're standing for a long time. Use a chair that provides support for your back, or tuck a little pillow behind your lower back. Tips to improve balance/alignment/motion: lift your leg so your thigh is parallel to the ground while touching a wall. Hold it for five breaths. For alignment, move side to side while sitting on a balance ball. For motion, try moving forward and backward on the ball.

Dear lybrate-user, hello, can you relate the onset of your pain to a certain activity or posture at work? the most common causes of backache at your age are either prolapsed intervertebral disc or lumbosacral strain. You must sleep on a firm mattress and use commode. Do hot fomentation and apply a local gel twice a day. And wear a ls belt. Take some pain killer for 1 week or so. And have physiotherapy for 7-10 days. Once your pain is controlled. Learn and do exercises regularly. Take care.

Tips to prevent joint degeneration:

Joint degeneration is progressive and signs and symptoms gradually worsen over time. Factors like age, gender, and sometimes heredity all play a role and, although there is no cure, there are ways to stave off more pain or compromised mobility later on in life:

1. Control your weight
Maintaining a healthy weight can go a long way toward protecting your joints. Obesity is a clear risk factor for developing some form of joint degeneration. Being overweight strains the joints, particularly those that bear a lot of weight, such as the knees and hips, causing the cartilage to wear away.

2. Stay Active
Although high intensity exercise, direct joint impact and injury from exercise can cause cartilage to break down faster, lack of any exercise may cause the muscles that run along the front of the thigh to remain weak, causing impact on the joints.

Exercise keeps joints healthy and is a key part of both joint degeneration prevention and symptom alleviation. Low impact options such as swimming, yoga, and walking push your heart rate up without putting further strain on joints. Strength training is also important as it increases muscle and bone health.

If fear of joint pain after exercise keeps you from exercising, try using heat and cold on painful joints, or take pain relievers, which may make it easier to exercise and stay active. The safest exercises are those that place the least body weight on the joints, such as bicycling, swimming, and other forms of water exercise.

3. Stand up
Are you guilty of slouching at your desk all day in front of a computer? Good posture alleviates stress on many important joints; it is therefore important to maintain the two natural curves of your spine, whether sitting or standing. The two natural curves are the concave curves between the base of your head and your shoulders, and the one from your upper back to the base of your spine.

4. Supplement with Daily Nutrients
Research indicates that glucosamine supplements help relieve pain and stiffness associated with joint degeneration, particularly when combined with appropriate lifestyle modifications, such as a balanced diet and exercise.

Glucosamine sulphate occurs naturally in the body, and seemingly plays a part in the repair and maintenance of joint cartilage. It is used by the body to produce a variety of other chemicals that are involved in building the connective tissue matrix (tendons, ligaments, cartilage) and the synovial fluid (thick fluid around the joints). Protection of this is critical to avoid suffering later in life.

Glucosamine sulphate has also been proven to reduce symptoms of joint degeneration, including pain (48%), compared to Ibuprofen (52%), which has significantly more side effects (35%) than glucosamine sulphate (6%), as reported in one clinical trial.

Eating fruits such as berries, apples, plums, and peaches that contain antioxidants may also help decrease inflammation.

5. Relax
Stress in general is bad for the body. It can lead to lack of sleep and depression, both of which take a toll on your body. Relaxation techniques such as meditation and yoga can help reduce levels of stress and improve your overall health.
So Remain Relaxed,Stress free.
