Sir, as you were in a plaster cast for 8 weeks for a fracture, there is bound to be some amount of swelling as there was no movements of the joints during this period. The swelling will subside on its own slowly as you start moving the involved joints. You can use a crepe bandage during walking/standing which will help in reducing the swelling.

Sitting is the position where all the load of your upper body falls on the lower back and poor stooped posture makes the load much more than your weight due to gravity acting as added force. Prolonged sitting fatigues your postural muscles and they start hurting. Also too much force on discs makes them degenerate and cause pain. A detailed exercise program prescribed by an orthopaedic physiotherapist can help strengthen back and reduce pain.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have written about pain in neck region and upper back as well. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like any radiating pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of neck and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

You must have a balanced high protein diet. Increase fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Protein sources like egg whites and soya. However if weakness persists get your thytoid, blood sugar & vitamin d levels tested and review.

Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be.
