Knee 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).

Effects and Diagnosis of Herniated Disc

Effects and Diagnosis of Herniated Disc

A Herniated disc also known as a slip disc or prolapsed disc and it refers to the problem where one of the discs located in between the bones of the vertebrae(backbone) gets damaged and stacks itself upon the nerves. The tender inner portion of the disc gets protruded over the outer ring. Herniated disc causes severe neck pain and back pain. It occurs when the outer ring gets weak and tears down. The most common symptoms include pain and numbness, especially on one side of the body. The pain extends down to the arms and legs. It worsens during nighttime. The muscles become weak. Overweight people are likely to have this disease, as the discs carry extra weight. Old people are vulnerable to a slip disc.

Effects of Herniated Disc:

  1. An untreated case of Herniated disc may cause permanent damage to the nerves.
  2. In certain cases, a Herniated disc is capable of cutting off nerve impulses to the "caudal equine"nerves, present in the lower back and legs. This leads to loss of bladder control or bowel control.
  3. Saddle anaesthesia is another long-term effect. Nerves are compressed by the slip disc, causing loss of sensation in the inner portions of your thighs, the back of your legs and surrounding the rectum region.
  4. Symptoms may improve or worsen.

Diagnosis of Herniated Disc:
Treatment or diagnosis of Herniated disc or slipped disc can be either conservative or surgical in nature. The nature of treatment is determined according to your discomfort level and the kind of pain you are experiencing, or how much the disc has slipped out.

  1. The pain caused by Herniated disc can be relieved by undertaking an exercise schedule, which includes stretching and strengthening the spine and its surrounding muscles.
  2. A physiotherapist should be appointed for recommending the types of exercises.
  3. Taking pain relievers also soothes the pain.
  4. Stronger medicines prescribed by doctors include-muscle relaxants, narcotics to deal with the pain, medicines for nerve pain such as "gabapentin"  or "duloxetine".
  5. In case of the symptoms not subsiding within a span of six weeks, a surgery may be recommended by your doctor. The surgeon may have to remove the damaged part of the disc. This surgery is called a microdiscectomy.

Spondylitis - How Homeopathy Plays An Important Role In Treating It?

Spondylitis - How Homeopathy Plays An Important Role In Treating It?

Spondylitis is a condition that is getting common nowadays mainly due to lifestyle changes. What used to be a disease that affected people in the age group of sixty has started affecting the younger generation too. They can be treated at best using conventional methods and painkillers, but they do not offer a long-term solution. This is where homeopathy comes in and gives an everlasting support not only in its treatment but also in its eradication. Let us take a look, in depth, about spondylitis and how homeopathy helps in treating it. 

Causes of spondylitis and how homeopathy can help 
Spondylitis is a kind of degenerative osteoarthritis of the joints between spinal vertebrae and / or neural foraminae. If the affection is limited to neck area, the clinical condition is known as Cervical Spondylitis and it is known as lumbar spondylosis if limited to the back between chest and pelvis. In severe cases, there can be pressure effect on the nerves with subsequent sensory and/or motor disturbances like pain, paraesthesia, numbness, weakness or paralysis of the affected limbs.

The deterioration occurs due to the simple reason of wear and tear in those who are disposed to such problems. In some rare cases certain diseases are also known to result in such condition, but they are very few and not common. Nowadays, lifestyle changes and prolonged usage of computers are affecting the younger generation to such an extent that they are starting to get the symptoms at an early age. 

We often twist and turn our necks in odd manners thus aggravating the condition. What is usually felt as a minor pain soon enlarges to a severe chronic condition called cervical spondylosis. The main symptoms include stiffness in the muscles of the neck and shoulder region. Pain is felt in the neck, and this pain usually extends itself to the back of the head. In most cases, the pain travels to the shoulders and arms and even affects the fingers. Dizziness would often be felt, and a person would sometimes be unable to recollect his surroundings. It can be diagnosed by an X-RAY or an MRI in certain cases. Most of the conventional methods use painkillers in the treatment. 

The results are often miniscule as the pain gets relieved only for a temporary period and usually comes back once the effect of the drug is gone. There is no permanent solution when the conventional methods are used, and in many cases, surgery is advised as a last resort. This is where homeopathy comes in. Homeopathy not only provides relief but identifies the root cause and aims at its elimination. The result is that the pain is completely eradicated and there are very minimal chances of the condition recurring. 

Homeopathy also works on the principle of understanding the patient first. The homeopathic physician gets to know the patient first - his lifestyle, his work, his family background, etc. and only then focuses on the actual treatment. This is done to ensure that each and every treatment plan should be individualised and specific to the patient. 

Value of homeopathic treatment 
The biggest advantage of using homeopathy is that it is completely safe and there are no side effects. They work in harmony with our life energy in the direction of cure, and the consequent positive changes are usually for life. Spondylitis can be completely cured with homeopathy.

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

Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Please tell me duration of pain and what are aggravating factors? how much distance can you walk and what is the analgesic requirement to carry out activities of daily routine? what medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. I also need to see your latest knee x rays so that I know what grade of arthritis are we dealing with on your case? if it is a very advanced case of degenerative arthritis with flexion/varus deformities, then you might be better with getting a replacement done but I will need to look at your x rays (latest) before suggesting you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Before buying a backpack, make sure that it has a padded back, padded, contoured, shoulder and chest straps, a waist belt, compression straps and reflective materials as these will reduce the pressure on the back, distribute the load to the pelvis and prevent the contents of the bag from digging into the back.

Due to hypothyroidism I am gaining weight. My TSH level is 7.23. How can I manage my weight? Please briefly suggest me some routine diet plan to maintain my weight and thyroid level.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If I remember correctly, yesterday only I had answered your query about appropriate control of hypothyroidism. In uncontrolled hypothyroidism where TSH value is more than the prescribed limit, weight gain along with all other symptoms of the disease tend to reappear. With a TSH value of 7.23 mU/L, your efforts to reduce weight are unlikely to be successful. So first thing is to bring that number down to 3 mU/L, by increasing the dosage of thyroxine being taken now. Then take a balanced diet that provides calories based on your ideal body weight, plus reduce about 500 calories from that and continue that diet with regular exercise for over 1 hour. That can help in reducing the weight. Thanks.
