Source of back pain in your case is the intervertebral disc bulge causing pressure over spinal cord and nerve roots. You have not mentioned details of your wife's problem like duration of pain or associated symptoms like weakness of legs or bladder / bowel incontinence. Treatment depends on duration of symptoms and neurological symptoms. Such disc bulge generally responds to rest, anti inflammatory drugs and exercises within 12 weeks of onset. In cases where symptoms persists beyond 12 weeks or progress intervention is needed. You can consult an Interventional Pain specialist in such situation and get treatment called epidural steroid injection. In this procedure anti inflammatory drugs (steroid along with local anaesthetic ) is injected at the nerve roots affected under X Ray guidance in operation theatre. This gives pain relief and decreases nerve swelling too. Patient can undergo effective physical rehabilitation and exercises after pain relief. Surgery like decompression of nerve roots is needed in less than 1% cases where there is weakness of leg muscles or loss of bladder , bowel control. You should follow the treatment plan given by your doctor after patient assessment.

So I would suggest you to make sure which one is the causative factor. On that basis I would suggest you the treatment. Regards

My age is 68 years. I want to know the reasons for swelling in the feet. My wight is also 80 plus.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are many causes of swelling in the legs and foot region. Most common reason is postural and many patients develop it when they stand for a long time, but as soon as they elevate their leg up, the swelling subsides. It can happen after any injury which is a priority to diagnose and treat accordingly. Also there could be infection or inflammation which can lead to swelling. Sometimes heavy physical activity may also lead to swelling in your calf muscles. But we have to look at medical causes as well, chronic cardiac conditions can lead to swelling, any pathology which leads to low proteins in the body like deranged lft, kft etc can also lead to swelling. Hypothyroidism can also lead to generalized swelling like appearance in the body. So for accurate diagnosis we need to clinically evaluate and get appropriate tests: cbc, esr, crp, lft, kft, serum electrolytes and thyroid profile. Please get back to me should you need more information or with test results. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Physiotherapist,
For acute pain you need to take some anti inflammatory drugs with pain killers. Physiotherapy is the best choice, Interferential therapy and Ultra sound therapy for first few days. Later on you can add pelvic traction too.

Cervical spondylosis is a disease which is related with the profession, you can start some ayurvedic medicines and some yoga postures which will definitely help your cause and will prevent the recurrence. Start ashwagandharistha 3tsp thrice a day with equal amount of water after meals, with this start bala tail nasal drops with 2-2 drops twice a day, and tab panchamrit loha guggulu 1 tab. Thrice a day, yoga postures like bhujangasana will surely add to your quick recovery.

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. Best wishes.
