Iam 22 old male  Sometimes my left shoulder pain . what should i do? please advice
Go for ayurveda's panchkarma therapy - we have many option for you - greeva basti (specialized procedure for neck pains), localised massgae with herbal oils, localised medicated steam, pottali massage. Continue these procedures for atleast 15 days. Regular oiling of the joint will improve the lubrication also. These procedures will relax your neck muscles and give strength to your nerves and muscles of neck. Also start some yogic exercises - tadasana, dhanurasan, halasana along with these therapies. Avoid using big pillow. Do not read or use gadets while lying on bed. This will greatly help. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. Please update with your valuable feedback after 15 days.\

Sir, while folding and unfolding some of my fingers of both hands experience pain now a days. Could you please explain the reason and what I should do?

Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

Quad Clenches: Lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, Hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short Arcs: Lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight Leg Raise: Lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

If there is no fracture in x-ray you should definitely go with a mri. Since you are not able to give w8 on your knee it can be acl (ligament) injury or meniscal injury too. To make a diagnosis both mri and physical tests need to be performed on you. I would suggest you to go to an orthopedic doctor 1st and then to physiotherapist. I hope I helped you. Thank you!

i think ,this problem of yours is related to your posture. try to sit straight as much as you can. See that your chair is supporting your back and neck while working. take your eyes off every 15 mins and look around. stretch your legs and hands every half an hour. Rotate your neck side and up and down (neck exercises). stand up and take five mins walk in the office every hour. small exercises like rotation of ankle and wrist, stretch outs every hour will help.try to keep your back straight supported by a good seating arrangement. You need to follow these routinely otherwise you will land up with cervical spondilytis in long run. If still pain persists can consult an orthopaedician for needful opinion and can go for physiotherapy. for weakness take diet rich in calcium and protein.

How to control frozen shoulder, m diabetic patient and heart patient, Please l advise the therapy needs to be followed.
However I do agree with opinion of said neurosurgeon but most of time in shoulder pain cases the chronic ligaments injuries lead to made restricted movement all because of pain. And patient try to avoid movement leads to so called frozen shoulder. In such cases after getting mri confirmation we can go with ortho biological treatment with prp/stem cell/along with rf ablation. Made your life more fruitfully instead of getting unwanted physiotherapy exercises.
