I have a pain on my wrist joint, specifically the joint of wrist and thumb portion for last 2 months. There is a swelling and a particular nerve is rising up. Since I am a musician it's paining while playing the harmonium too. Please advise.

Hi Thanks for your query. I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. It seems that you have tendinitis which is inflammation of tendon sheath due to overuse like in your case it may be due to playing harmonium. If there is no other associated symptoms i advise you to wear wrist brace, do lots of ice packs and take a short course of anti-inflammatory medicines. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

4 Ways To Prevent Foot Arch Pain!

4 Ways To Prevent Foot Arch Pain!

Foot arch pain is used in broader context for describing pain in bones, ligaments, muscles and nerve on the foot bottom. Slight damage to any of the components in the foot bottom can cause great pain. For starters, the pain lasts for a brief period, but increases over time if the condition is left untreated. Foot arch pain is more commonly witnessed in people over the age of 60 and among athletes engaged in sports of high impact.
The treatment plan of the pain totally depends on the cause. An early and right diagnosis goes a long way in treating the condition faster. For occasional mild to moderate pain, simple solutions such as footwear change can do the trick. Doctors often suggest four simple methods. This starts with rest followed by applying ice and then trying compression and elevation.

Anti-inflammatory medications are used to treat foot arch pain. Cases that are severe in nature can be treated with steroid and anti-inflammatory injections. For extreme cases, cortisol injections are prescribed too. This is done to relieve pain and release plantar fascia. Even stretching exercises are known to give relief from the pain. Some of the recommended exercises during this period are:

  1. Stretch-related to plantar fascia: This exercise should be performed by crossing the legs at the junction of the knee. The body weight should be rested on the unaffected leg and it should gradually come down to touch the toe. The idea is to stretch the plantar fascia. A set of 20 such movements should be practised on a daily basis. Each movement should last for about 10 seconds.
  2. Foot flexing: This exercise can be practised before getting out of bed. This is the tie when the pain from the plantar fascia is felt the most. This exercise should be repeated 20 times each lasting for about 10 seconds.
  3. Rolling stretch: This exercise should be started by sitting in a chair. A tennis ball should be placed under the foot arch and the same should be rolled back and forth for ten times at a time. The same should be repeated with the second foot. Once this posture gets comfortable, the same should be practised by standing on the ball. It is known to be extremely useful for people suffering from foot arch pain.

How to prevent foot arch pain?
1. Wear shoes that are half an inch lose as they will make feel comfortable while walking
2. Losing weight; obese tends to cause pain in the foot arch
3. Performing free hand exercise and simple stretching on a daily basis
4. Not to overuse the foot. People who stand for more than 5-6 hours at stretch on a daily basis are observed to have foot arch pain. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Back pain may be due to strain, sprain, weather change etc. *Avoid bending forward while working on lap top or for any other work. *Don’t sit continuously working on laptop etc. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict bike driving as far as possible. *Don’t carry laptop or any load on your shoulder. Carrying very light loads equally with both hands is better *Sit straight so that back bone gets proper support. A dining chair is better than a laid back sofa. *You can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good *Soft bed will not give proper support to your back bone. Hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow is better. *Get yourself tested whether you have spondylitis problem. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take Calc fluor 200--once daily in the morning.

Shoulder Injury - What To Expect From Arthroscopic Surgery?

Shoulder Injury - What To Expect From Arthroscopic Surgery?

Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure, wherein a viewing instrument is inserted into an area through a small incision in the skin and further work (repair or removal of foreign body) is carried out. With advancements in medical technology, more and more surgeries are being done arthroscopically. Ligament tears are one such instance, where almost all ligament tears are repaired through arthroscopy.
The most common shoulder ligament injury is the rotator cuff, which helps in moving the arm around the shoulder. The tear could be small, medium or large; it could also be partial or complete.

The rotator cuff tendon is inserted into the shoulder in the upper arm and if it gets torn, due to weakness or injury, the movement can be limited. This is repaired arthroscopically due to the following advantages:

  1. Minimal or no hospitalisation
  2. Minimal recovery time
  3. Minimally invasive
  4. Minimally painful procedure

Indications:
Rotator cuff tears are very common in, especially in athletes (hockey, wrestlers, football, etc.) and labour workers who are used to repetitive overhead activities. However, before going for a surgery, the following should be considered:

  1. Nonsurgical methods including physical and rehab therapy have not provided sufficient relief
  2. The patient’s overall health status should be good to sustain the surgery and recovery
  3. Financial and overall health risks are explained and understood

What to expect during surgery?:

  1. A presurgical evaluation is done to ensure that the tear can be treated arthroscopically
  2. X-rays and MRI may be required to confirm the diagnosis
  3. The procedure is done under local anaesthesia, and the procedure is done in a seated position
  4. General anaesthesia can be used though if the patient and the doctor chose to
  5. Depending on where the injury is, incisions are planned to ensure good access to the rotator cuff
  6. If there are foreign bodies like bone spurs, they are removed or trimmed
  7. The procedure usually takes about 2 to 3 hours, and the repair is carried out
  8. Though the complete recovery may take longer, initial recovery with relief of pain and stiffness happens quite soon after the procedure
  9. The incisions are closed using absorbable sutures
  10. The patient is given a sling for immediate postop use

Recovery:
The patient can go home after a couple of hours when the anaesthetic effect has worn off, driving is not possible though.

  1. Initial overuse of the shoulder must be prevented
  2. Pain, infection, and swelling control immediately postop is important
  3. Can take up to 6 months for complete recovery depending on the size of the tear
  4. Exercise regimen and physical therapy instructions should be strictly followed

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
