The lower end of the vertebral column is inflamed and that bone is called coccyx bone and the condition is called coccydynia. The conservative management would be to keep ice in that inflamed area during one time in a day and also to sit in a hot water bowl where the penetration of the heat would help to reduce the inflammation. And to reduce the weight falling on the inflammed surface we suggest patients to use air cushion pillow (also called as doughnut pillow) where in the buttock's weight will not fall exactly on the painful tail bone and that would automatically reduce the pain.

An osteoma is a benign (not cancerous) bony growth which can appear as a hard, fixed knot or bump. U need to do an x-ray or mri or ct scan to diagnose. Homeopathy is a very effective for this problem n has very encouraging results. And homeopathic medicines are safe and do not have any side effects at all.

For this the best treatment would be to undergo ultrasonic therapy in one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Osteomas are benign head tumors made of bone. They're usually found in the head or skull, but they can also be found in the neck. While osteomas are not cancerous, they can sometimes cause headaches, sinus infections, hearing issues or vision problems – however, many benign osteomas don't require treatment at all. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

An osteoma, or a forehead bump, is a type of benign tumor that forms on the bone that can give the appearance of a lump or hard knot on your forehead.

Osteoporosis & Osteomalacia - How Distinct Are They?

Osteoporosis & Osteomalacia - How Distinct Are They?

Osteoporosis:

Osteoporosis is a condition whereby the density of the bone decreases and the body ceases to manufacture the same quantity of bone as it did previously. Although it tends to affect both females as well as males, it is most commonly seen in women. The reason for this is the decreased production of estrogen during the menopause phase. The hormone, estrogen provides protection against osteoporosis.

When someone suffers from this condition, all their bones become weak and they become highly susceptible to fractures in the event of an accident or even a slight knock.

The word osteoporosis means porous bones. Once a person crosses the age of 35 years the rate of bone renewal or rebuilding slows down. When this happens on a prolonged basis the concerned person is highly prone to develop osteoporosis.

Key Points:

• Those who smoke and have a poor diet are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis.
• Osteoporosis targets areas of the body such as the hip, wrists and spine.
• Although there is no particular outward sign of osteoporosis you are likely to develop a stoop as a result of a weak spine. This will further lead to bone pain.

Osteomalacia:

Osteomalacia is a condition that is similar to osteoporosis where the bones are weakened. But what makes this condition different from osteoporosis is that in osteomalacia there is difficulty in the process of bone-building. In osteoporosis, existing bones become weak.

Reasons for Osteomalacia:

Osteomalacia occurs when there is vitamin D deficiency. As a nutrient, the benefits of vitamin D are enormous because it is instrumental for the absorption of calcium in the stomach.

Vitamin D is helpful for the maintenance of phosphate and calcium levels which is needed in the proper formation of bones. Vitamin D can be acquired from ultraviolet rays of the sun and also from food items such as fish and dairy products.

Signs of Osteomalacia:

Signs of osteomalacia are few. The most common signs include fracturing of the bones and weakening of the muscles. A person who suffers from the condition of osteomalacia has a difficult time walking and may develop abnormal gait.

Treatment of Both Osteoporosis and Osteomalacia:

When it comes to treating osteoporosis it is mainly focused on preventing the onset, maintaining healthy bone density, preventing fractures and reducing pain. This treatment is done by making adjustments to your lifestyle as we daily meal plan in addition to taking medications and health supplements.

As the first line of treatment of osteomalacia, the patient will be prescribed a number of phosphates, vitamin D, and calcium health supplements. Additionally, the patient will be asked to spend some time out in the sun for the absorption of sunlight.

Breast Reduction - Know More About It's Methods And Advantages!

Breast Reduction - Know More About It's Methods And Advantages!

Women who have abnormally large breasts usually tend to develop them during adolescence or during pregnancy. Large breasts can cause physiological problems apart from being unsightly. Some of the problems commonly reported by women include back and neck problems. Let's explore one of the most common methods of breast reduction known as the keyhole method.

What is the keyhole method of breast reduction?
The Keyhole method of breast reduction is the most commonly prescribed form of breast reduction surgery. In this method, the doctor places an anchor or a keyhole-shaped incision around the areola extending to the underside of the breast. Then a small device is inserted to melt fat and a low power vacuum is used to extract it. After this is done the area is stitched up reducing the breast size.

The extent of the incision:
The length and breadth of the incision can vary from case to case. However, the following areas usually tend to have scarring -

1. The area around the nipple known as the areola - A round circular incision is made around the areola to open up this section of the breast.

2. Downwards from the areola to underside of the breast - This is where the keyhole shape comes into prominence as this is an extension of the incision to open up the breast.

3. The area on the underside of the breast along with a horizontal curve  This may vary in extent from patient to patient depending upon how much tissue needs to be removed and thus may be larger or smaller.

The advantages of keyhole method of breast reduction:
There are many valid reasons why this method is the most prescribed and most popular form of breast reduction. Let's look at some of the reasons below.

1. The most minimally invasive method - Conventional breast reduction may employ techniques which open up the breast which is a longer and more complicated form of surgery, and thus the keyhole method being the least invasive has its own advantages.

2. Lesser scars - With other forms of breast reduction, the scars along the incision lines may be much larger. With the keyhole method, much of the scarring is hidden away due to the shape of the incision, as well as the size, being smaller.

3. Quicker healing - Most forms of keyhole surgery use liposculpture or the extraction of fat rather than full excision of tissues and thus it generally translates to quicker healing. Even in cases where excision is performed, healing still tends to be quicker with this method as the incisions tend to be smaller.

Osteomalacia - How To Get Rid Of It?

Osteomalacia - How To Get Rid Of It?

The weakening of the bones during the bone development or formation process is called Osteomalacia. Osteomalacia, when it occurs in children, is called Rickets. A lot of people confuse it with osteoporosis, which affects bones that have already been formed.

One’s bones need phosphorus and calcium to remain strong and healthy. However, the minerals get broken down by Vitamin D. Osteomalacia occurs when the body is lacking in Vitamin D, without which, bones become flexible and soft. The primary symptom of Osteomalacia is pain in the bones, generally experienced in the hips. The pain can also be felt in the arms, legs and the spine. As the disease progresses, the bones become weaker and the pain increases.

Causes of Osteomalacia
The primary cause behind Osteomalacia is the lack of Vitamin D. Vitamin D gets generated in the skin when it is exposed to the sun’s UV rays. Vitamin D can also be found in dairy products and fish. A lack of exposure to the sun and the absence of Vitamin D-rich foods from the diet may lead to Osteomalacia. However, even if you are getting enough sun and Vitamin D in your food, there are other ways in which Vitamin D deficiency can occur:

  1. Some forms of cancer inhibit the absorption of Vitamin D
  2. Celiac disease can damage the lining of the intestine, preventing the absorption of Vitamin D.
  3. Liver disorders
  4. Kidney disorders
  5. A lack of phosphate in the diet can also lead to Osteomalacia
  6. Some drugs that are used to treat seizures can also cause Osteomalacia

Treatment of Osteomalacia
The treatment of Osteomalacia, if the disease is diagnosed early, is fairly simple. You just need to increase your consumption of Vitamin D. Your doctor may ask you to take Vitamin D supplements, increase the intake of the vitamin in your diet in the form of milk products and fish. Getting just the right amount of exposure to the sun is also important in this regard. Getting Vitamin D injected into the body is another way to make up for the deficiency in this vitamin in the body.
