I am 17 years old and I am having backache from last 6 months. What should I do.?
Six months is a long period for backache at this age. If it radiates to the legs, it is more alarming. Use a hard bed with thin mattress and a lumbo-sacral corset. Give local heat, apply local pain gel and take pain killers for 7-10 days. It may need to be investigated if pain persists. Consult an ortho. Surgeon in your vicinity.

B: accordiona-5What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?
Effect of spinal block is very good but duration of effect is unpredictable. 90% patients with back pain due to disc gets better without intervention. Start physiotherapy, avoid sitting as far as possible. Reading or watching tv can be done in prone position. Avoid forward bending, lifting weight. Practice bhujangasan, shalbhasan, makrasan, markatasan, chakrasan under supervision and regularly.

Hello, first of all you should know what is backache and by which factors it caused and aggravated. The usual cause of low back pain is the sedentary lifestyle that we lead these days. There is hardly any movement. walking, running and cycling like activities are also not a part of our daily routine. To add to it, our diet consists more and more of junk food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and high fibre foods are consumed less and less. These daily practices lead to obesity. The increased body weight puts lot of pressure on the spine which has to bear all the extra unwanted weight. The back muscles which are already weak due to lack of exercise and wrong posture are unable to cope with this increased load. This causes pain in the back muscles. Management for Back Pain:-Along with medicines for relieving pain, one needs to identify the cause and correct it. This may require some medicines or some correction in your posture or reducing weight or improving your lifestyle. At the same time, there is a need to work on the local muscle strengthening. Back muscles need to be strengthened so that they can bear the weight of the upper body. For this exercises of the back muscles are very helpful. Regular walking is also very helpful as it is a wholesome exercise of the body, improves blood circulation and helps lose weight. Most importantly if you are overweight then losing weight is an important part of the whole treatment plan .Long term use of painkillers for low back pain is harmful Treatment for back pain:- Homeopathic medicines are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also used for the treatment of chronic back pain.Selection of the exact remedy depends upon the individual symptoms of the person.So share the complete symptom picture for the proper treament. In the mean time take Arnica 200, 3 drops in the morning and Rhus tox. 200, 3 drops at night for 7 days.Take care.

Plantar fasciitis (HEEL Pain)

Master Of Surgery, DNB (Orthopedics)
Orthopedist
Ask Free Question
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. The plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of foot and connects heel bone to your toes gets inflamed. Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your very first steps in the morning. The pain of plantar fasciitis normally decreases after taking few steps, but it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position. Plantar fasciitis is particularly common in runners. In addition, people who are overweight and those who wear shoes with inadequate support are at risk of plantar fasciitis. Under normal circumstances, plantar fascia acts like a shock-absorbing bowstring, supporting the arch in foot. If tension on that bowstring becomes too great, it can create small tears in the fascia. Repetitive stretching and tearing can cause the fascia to become irritated or inflamed. Factors that may increase your risk of developing plantar fasciitis include:

Certain types of exercise.
Faulty foot mechanics.
Obesity.
Occupations that keep you on your feet
Ignoring plantar fasciitis may result in chronic heel pain that hinders regular activities. Change in the way of walking to minimize plantar fasciitis pain, develops foot, knee, hip or back problems. What to expect from your doctor:

Do your symptoms tend to occur at a particular time of day?
What types of shoes do you usually wear?
Are you a runner, or do you participate in any sports that involve running?
Do you have a physically demanding job?
Have you experienced any injuries to your feet in the past?
Besides your foot, do you feel pain anywhere else?
What, if anything, seems to improve your symptoms?
What, if anything, appears to worsen your symptoms?
During the physical exam, your doctor checks for points of tenderness in your foot. The location of your pain can help determine its cause. Test may include x-ray, mri and ct scan. Sometimes an x-ray shows a spur of bone projecting forward from the heel bone. In the past, these bone spurs were often blamed for heel pain and removed surgically. But many people who have bone spurs on their heels have no heel pain.

Medications, pain drugs, therapies, stretching and strengthening exercises or use of specialized devices may provide symptom relief. These include:

Physical therapy.
Night splints.
Orthotics.
Surgical or other procedures
When more-conservative measures aren't working, steroid shots, extracorporeal shock wave therapy. Surgery to reduce the pain of plantar fasciitis, try these self-care tips:

Maintain a healthy weight.
Choose supportive shoes.
Don't wear worn-out athletic shoes.
Change your sport.
Apply ice
Stretch your arches.

My spouse suffered in back pain & breast pain from last 2 years is there any remedies.
Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain: -stop normal physical activity for the first few days. This will help relieve your symptoms and reduce any swelling in the area of the pain. -Apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. --While sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -Find a mattress with back support. A good mattress should provide support for the natural curves and alignment of the spine. Medium-firm mattresses usually provide more back pain relief than firm mattresses. -Do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back for the first 6 weeks after the pain begins. -Avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -Good posture plays a key role in your spine health, helping to prevent additional back and neck pain and even injuries to spinal structures. Try to be aware of your posture and make good posture part of your normal routine. -head up, shoulders back, rear tucked under -Stand and walk with correct posture -Sit with support -Lift and carry carefully -And finally, keep moving:-Maintaining a static position for too long—more than twenty or thirty minutes at a time—is hard on the back. Prolonged static posture can slowly deplete elasticity from the tissues. By simply moving—be it a change of position, a stretch, or a short walk—the tissue elasticity needed to protect your joints can be restored and the associated discomfort reduced. -Stretching and strengthening exercises are important. But, starting these exercises too soon after an injury can make your pain worse. -Some Physiotherapy treatment like IFT current can give you relief. -Consult a Physiotherapist for detail assessment and management of your back pain. -For her breast pain problems please consult a Gynecologist. Best wishes Best wishes.
