I am a 77 years old male . During last 1 year approx I am facing blackout all of a sudden & falling on the floor. I have got checked 3 doctors 3 times during previous black outs. I get fainted for a short time 30 seconds approx, one doctor asked me to take x-ray of shoulder area , that revealed two bone 3rd & 4th has come closer. I am trying for a certified physiotherapist for treatment . I need to know what is the real cause and what sort of treatment will cure my problem?

Ans: Hello Prabir,
Have you consulted a neurologist too?
Black outs can be due to many reasons like low bp, some issue in the brain area, vestibular issues or yes maybe from neck and shoulder muscles being tight.
First you need to rule this out with a neurologist. If all ok from his/her side then you can visit a physiotherapist. They will need to check mainly the sides of your neck muscles called as sternocleidomastoid muscle for trigger points. Accordingly if tight they will need to do release the muscles via myofascial release techniques like dry needling, cupping etc.
Take care and all the best for a healthy life ahead!

I had frozen shoulder problem as told to me in my left hand and from November, 2020 to August, 2021 i consulted various reputed orthopedic surgeons and even got treatment from Safdarjang Sports Injury Centre New Delhi and as per advice got physiotherapy treatment for full one year but to no avail. Then in September, 2020 i consulted one of the top most Ortho Surgeons who after xray etc. told me that he will give me two injections(whereas he gave three such injections) and my problem will be got with physio treatment in three months but from day one his physio told him that my shoulder is very stiff and only solution is to get MRI done and then operation be done which was done in October, 2020 and I was told that after five week physio i will be ok but even after operation there was so much pain at the time of physio and afterwards that i could not have sleep for 20/22 hours and then Doctor extended time limit to two months and then to three months but even after five months there was no relief. ultimate i stopped treatment and consulted another ortho in south delhi reputed hospital he told me that my veins were weak and at the first place i stopped hard core physio and that surgery was not a best option. Though after I stopped physio and started doing light exercises at home there is slight improvement but at times i have great pain at lower of my shoulder/shoulder and upper half portion of left hand. It is one year since i have started treatment from present ortho. What to do?
Ans: Hello Ravinder,
What did your MRI and x-ray show? What was the operation done exactly for?
