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. Report after 5 days.

  1. Cervical spine in neck region: 7 vertebrae (C1-C7)
  2. Thoracic Spine in upper back: 12 vertebrae (T1-T12)
  3. Lumbar spine in lower back: 5 vertebra (L1-L5)
  4. Sacrum in Lower back Fused: 5 vertebrae (S1-S5)
  5. Coccyx (tailbone) fused: 3-5 vertebrae. 

Significance of Vertebral column:

Hello, Thank you for your query in Lybrate. Here you mentioned that you have problems related to your shoulder joints and your back muscles. These can happen after any injury or frozen shoulder and spondylosis. Sometimes getting cold may cause pain in muscles and joints. You need to apply warmth on affected part, Avoid getting cold/Damp. Exercise at least 30 minutes a day. Take warm birth once. I can assure you Regural medicines with managed diet and regiment would help you within 3 months. Thank you.

Hello lybrate-user The problem with your elbow is that you mostly would be having a tennis elbow. You need to wear a tennis elbow splint put ice to reduce the inflammation and not lift weight for 3 to 4 weeks and then after the inflammation settles down need to re-exercise the elbow and wrist.

I am 44 years old computer programmer, and I have a pain in my right palm and wrist. Kindly suggest what to do.

Internal Medicine Specialist, Kolkata
I am 44 years old computer programmer, and I have a pain in my right palm and wrist. Kindly suggest what to do.
Thank you for the query. Computer programmers are very prone to develop a condition called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This occurs due to compression of a nerve called median nerve as it passes through a tunnel in your wrist (carpal tunnel). The main symptoms are pain, numbness and tingling, in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and the thumb side of the ring fingers. The symptoms may be worse at night. Clinical examination and nerve conduction velocity test confirms the diagnosis. However, other causes like degenerative wrist joint changes and tendinitis may also be a cause. Please get a X ray of the wrist joint done (AP and lateral). It is difficult to comment on the exact cause without examining. I would suggest you to consult an orthopaedic surgeon. Meanwhile you can take Calcium supplements and apply ice pack locally.
