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.\

Causes And Symptoms Of Hip Osteoarthritis!

Causes And Symptoms Of Hip Osteoarthritis!

When joints get inflamed, it is known as arthritis. This causes swelling and pain in the joints of your body such as the hips and the knees. When the cartilage gets damaged at the ends of bones, a type of arthritis called osteoarthritis occurs.

There are two main types of osteoarthritis:

  1. Primary: This type is more generalized. It affects the knees, fingers, hips, spine and thumb.
  2. Secondary: This type can occur after injury or joint inflammation, or as a result of any disease that affects the ligament's composition, like hemochromatosis.

How is the hip affected by osteoarthritis?
Patients have difficulties walking if they have hip osteoarthritis. Diagnosing hip osteoarthritis is difficult. It is because the pain appears in varied locations, such as the groin, buttocks, knee or thigh. The pain can be a dull throb or can be sharp and stabbing. The hip is usually stiff.

What are the causes of hip osteoarthritis?
The causes of hip osteoarthritis are unknown. However, the factors that can lead to osteoarthritis are joint injury, excessive weight and rising age.
Along with the abovementioned factors, the following may contribute as well:

  1. The joints may not have developed accurately
  2. The cartilage may have inherited the defects
  3. If the joints are too irritated due to added pressure on them, like excess body weight or stressful activities that include hip movement, osteoarthritis may develop.

What are the symptoms of hip osteoarthritis?
The symptoms of hip osteoarthritis are as follows:

  1. Joints feel stiff when you get out of bed
  2. Joints feel stiff if you have been sitting for some time
  3. The joints feel painful, swollen or tender
  4. You can hear (a "crunching" sound) or feel the bones rubbing against each other.
  5. You find yourself unable to do certain things, like putting on socks, as it requires your hips to move.

How is hip osteoarthritis treated?
The main objective of treatment is to restore the patient's ability to move around. A part of this objective includes correcting the function of the hip and managing the pain. The treatment can include:

  1. Joint care and rest
  2. To take weight off the area affected, a cane is used
  3. Pain relief that does not involve drugs
  4. Shedding excess weight
  5. Exercising
  6. Surgery
  7. Alternative and complementary therapies. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopedist.

Hello doctors. I had all body pain since 1year. I wasn't sure about what had happened to me but now I had pain in my hands and legs including a stiff neck and shoulder pain. I also had lower back pain. I check for vitamin d3 and its very low. Regarding the lower back, I did a x-ray and saw that my tail bone is not in its uniform; it has moved inside from its actual position. What should I do? should I wait until vitamin d3 level rises? can it be healed by accupressure? please help.

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.

Hello. I have a bad pain in my knees. Im not able to stand even. I hv slip disc too. Doc. Need your help.
Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

My daughter is 28 years old and is married. She complains of severe headache arising from neck. On massaging an ointment on the neck, some knots are felt at the end of occipital region. What could be the reason? She had once fallen from fast running skates resulting in lower back pain. Please suggest the remedy if any.

There must be inflammation of her occipital regeon and adjoining muscle. She might need some physiotherapy session and strengthening exercises. Same as her lower back also. Must teach a proper postural training also.

According to the MRI done on my spine, it is noticed the L4 vertebrae has shifted outwards resulting in the immediate upper and lower vertebrae collapsing towards each other pressing on the transverse nerves which result in the calves and back of the thighs becoming caught and painful. With the result walking and standing is very difficult and painful. There is no pain in the lower or upper back. Sitting is comfortable and I can drive my car without any discomfort or pain.

Dear sir, your problem is called spondylolisthesis. Can use lumbar support belt and do back extension exercises. If radiation of pain is severe you may need surgery. Because of your age, better to wait and see. Regards.

Hi All My age is 28, I am suffering from severe knee pain and inflammation from past three months, firstly I went to doctor and I was diagnosed with vitamin d deficiency of 11. Other than that my knee x-ray shows early degenerative changes and bone spiking, I took the medicines prescribed by the doctor for 1 month but didn't see much relief in knee pain. So, I went to another doctor and he asked me for an Mri and that MRI showed osteochondral injury to the left knee, but I also has pain in the right knee as well. I have been taking medicines prescribed by the new doctor from past 1 week and getting physiotherapy, still not much relief in the pain. I am in a state of confusion whether I have degenerative changes or knee injury. Should I see another doctor. Kindly response.

The problem is you are constantly shifting doctors. Follow one doctor. The problem with your knee is the muscles are weak and so your knee is developing osteochondral damage as the muscle is not able to support your activity. Start exercising and don't simply do mri. Osteochondral injury can be picked up even on x-ray. You keep shifting doctors next doctor will say do bone scan. Stick to one doctor that's more important. Then only you will get healed.

Dear Madam. The reason is chiefly postural. He needs to strengthen his back and change the posture during work. Also you need to check your mattress---a firm mattress can get rid of back aches. Regards .
