1.Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. 2. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling. 3.Do veerbhadrasna, dhanurasna, trikonasna, setubhandasana, utrasana. 10 min each pose daily early morning.

Passive physical therapy (modalities), which includes things done to the patient, such as heat application, ice packs and electrical stimulation. For example, a heating pad may be applied to warm up the muscles prior to doing exercising and stretching, and an ice pack may be used afterward to soothe the muscles and soft tissuesctive physical therapy, which focuses on specific exercises and stretching. For most low back pain treatments, active exercise is the focus of the physical therapy program Depending upon the patient's specific diagnosis and level of pain, the back pain exercises and rehabilitation programs will be very different, so it is important for patients to see a spine specialist trained to develop an individualized program of back exercises and to provide instruction on using the correct form and technique.

6 weeks of support is necessary. it also depends on the level of the fracture and I suspect if your surgeon has given you an air boot then it will be a stable fracture. you can upload your xrays

Osteoporosis: Management and Prevention!

MCh Ortho, DNB Ortho, MS Ortho, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Osteoporosis: Management and Prevention!

The bone is one of the hardest substances in the body. It is equal to a matrix which is filled with various minerals like calcium and phosphorus. With age, people lose on the minerals and what remains is the porous matrix. This is a very common condition in elderly people and is known as osteoporosis - osteo for bone, and porosis for the porous condition.

The good news is that this condition can be managed and the onset can also be prevented.

Management: This involves a multi-pronged approach, covering lifestyle changes, diet, exercise, and medications.

  1. Lifestyle changes: Quitting smoking and reducing alcohol help in improving osteoporosis.
  2. Diet: Improving vitamin D, calcium intake, and protein supplements help in preventing the onset of osteoporosis. If you do not get the required amounts of vitamins and calcium from the diet, you may be advised to take supplements.
  3. Exercise: The main issue that people face due to osteoporosis is that the bones get brittle and can fracture and lead to frequent falls. Exercising regularly by including some weight-bearing workouts can a help in strengthening the bones, thus preventing fracture.
  4. Reduce the incidences of falls: It is very essential to alter the living spaces to reduce incidence of falls. This could include improved lighting, using anti-fall rugs, regular eye checks, etc.
  5. Medications: Bisphosphonates is the most commonly used drugs for osteoporosis. In addition, hormonal supplements are also used in women who are post-menopausal.

Prevention would include understanding risk factors and working on reducing the impact of these, as below.

  • Calcium supplements are suggested for people with a family history. This helps in strengthening the bone matrix and thereby prolongs porous bone formation.
  • Women over the age of 40 should take calcium supplements. Menopause is a major risk factor, and this is particularly due to the hormonal changes (lowered levels of estrogen).
  • Reducing cigarette smoking helps prolong osteoporosis, as smoking is a major risk factor. The risk is increased in women smokers.
  • Sedentary lifestyle is another risk factor, and therefore those who are at risk should engage in an active lifestyle. A regular exercise regime is very essential to keeping the bones agile and strong.

Dietary changes to prevent osteoporosis include:

  1. Diet rich in dairy products, as it helps by providing adequate calcium. Yoghurt consumption also helps in improving estrogen levels, and prevents osteoporosis.
  2. Eggs also help in improving calcium and estrogen levels in the body.
  3. Fish and meat are rich in calcium and protein, so help in preventing osteoporosis.
  4. Bananas improves calcium absorption, provides essential oils required for bone health.
  5. Cabbage helps in improving bone metabolism and improving calcium uptake by the bones.
  6. Reduce alcohol and caffeine intake.

So, while osteoporosis is inevitable given the natural bone structure, it can definitely be prevented and managed.

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

Hello lybrate-user, welcome to icliniq. Painkillers will help, provided you apply warm water over the joint and do active slow movements with it. If there is swelling then apply ice.

you should get your blood pressure and hemoglobin checked. also you may be having poor vision. any stress in form of lack of sleep or exertion will always exacerbate the problem. you should take sound sleep and rest your eyes by closing them for 2 min after 45 min of regular work
