I am suffering from back pain when I work on dest top and long sitting, what should I do?

I am suffering from back pain when I work on dest top and long sitting, what should I do?
Back pain could be mechanical basically due to long sitting hours. So you should get up every 2-3 hrs from the chair and do back stretching or extension exercises, also neck stretching. Besides that ergonomic chairs should be used and proper posture should be maintained while working, avoid slouching. You can learn core strengthening and back extension exercises from a physiotherapist and do it every day twice, this will help in strengthening your back muscles.

I am 36 years old and have been suffering from lower back pain due to lost of lumber lordosis with forward sleeping of L5 over S1 vertebra. I consult a neurosurgeon and told me that all this is due to my spine and it is by birth and as a banker this became my job related problem. He suggest me to do postural exercise and to take physiotherapy. I am doing so as per instruction since one week. Sometimes I am feeling better, some times pain increases and I feel pain when I sit. My question is. 1. If I will do exercise regularly whether it can be cured permanently? 2. How long time it will take to restructure my posture and remove pain. 3. Suggest me any other treatment where this can be removed permanently?

What Therapy Is Best For Herniated Disc?

B.P.T, M.P.T

What Therapy Is Best For Herniated Disc?

The pain which a person experiences as a result of having a herniated disc can be quite debilitating, to tell you the truth. However, taking into due account the fact that all a person in such a situation would want would be to be up and running as soon as possible.

In order for this to happen, as would be expected, he or she would need to go through the options which are available for treatment of a herniated disc. There are various types of herniated disc treatments which are available though it can be said that conservative treatments are preferred as these treatments do not require surgery to be carried out on the person who is suffering from the issue.

The course of this sort of treatment lasts somewhere between one month to one and a half months. The aim of conservative treatment is to reduce or minimise the pain that is automatically associated with a herniated disc. There is a strategy to help a person improve by which he or she is provided with medicine for the purpose of pain relief while physiotherapy is made use of to make the underlying condition better.

Surgical treatment may be required, if the case is such that the person has lost a great degree of function and is in pain that seems to be pretty much unbearable. `If the person has a lumbar herniated disc, then the conservative treatment for this sort of case would require him or her to apply ice and heat from a warm source to provide relief to the area. If the pain is very bad yet the person is determined not to undergo surgery then the answer would be to consume some oral steroids or narcotic pain medications. One should surely keep in mind that this is only to carried out as per the prescription of a doctor who is trained and experienced to a sufficient degree.

If surgery is required for this sort of herniated disc, then it is likely to be a lumbar decompression surgery which aims to allow for the growth of the spine back to health as a result of removing the herniated disc. When it comes to cervical herniated disc treatment, conservative solutions include using drugs like ibuprofen and physical therapy; similar to solving lumbar herniated discs. However, surgical treatment for cervical herniated discs warrants anterior cervical decompression; where the disc is removed from the front of the neck. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

Sir, It's not paralysis as far as I can guess with your description. It seems like due to lack of exercise and activity your muscles have become weak. I would suggest you to go for morning walk regularly. Do some strengthing and stretching exercises for you legs for atleast 15 days. If symptoms still persist, Consult Physiotherapist. I hope I helped you. THANK YOU!

I am 25 years old and have had a back pain so what's are the treatment which I should keep so it doesn't occur.

I am 25 years old and have had a back pain so what's are the treatment which I should keep so it doesn't occur.
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. -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 -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 some relief. -a full history of your problem should be taken and your movements assessed by a physiotherapist. Please consult a physiotherapist for the same. Best wishes.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. I assume you have undergone routine tests and bp is normal. Neck pain can be due to bad posture. Lacked of exercise etc while working seeing computer. At home seeing tv try to sit straight and look at the screen perpendicularly. Not turning your neck slightly to see the screen. This true while travelling driving also. Try doing bending forward and backward and side way exercise slowly. Some 30 times per sitting do it 2 times a day. Please check your eye sight also. Slight difference powers between the eyes can also produce pain please also do vit d in blood and let me know the result.

Have extreme pain in my knee. So please tell me some adequate ways to get rid of it.

Have extreme pain in my knee. So please tell me some adequate ways to get rid of it.
1.. Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. 2.. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. 3.. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. 4.. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. 5.. 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.

There is no such thing as slip disc on the hip. Hip is different. Slip disc happens in spine. Hip pain in your case could be due to Arthritis possibly rheumatoid arthritis. Slip disc is not disgnosed by xrays but Hip pain due to arthritis is diagnosed by xraying the hip.

Calvit k2 as suggested by doctor. Kindly suggest.

Physiotherapist, Ludhiana
Displaced coccyx takes abit longer time to get to normal. You need to care a lot in day to day life along with other treatments. Avoid taking too much of painkillers. Instead you can have a transdermal patch on the skin which has minimum side effects on you.
