I am 26 yrs old. Now I am in a problem with back pain for last 2 months. What should I do to get well.

I am 26 yrs old. Now I am in a problem with back pain for last 2 months. What should I do to get well.
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. We remain seated most of the time and stand for very short periods of time. Unfortunately 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.

If a guy having a back pain for about 2 months. A guy of 20 years. What should he do?

If a guy having a back pain for about 2 months. A guy of 20 years. What should he do?
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket. And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back. You may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * surya namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * in diet vegetable protein of cereal, b complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

HELLO, Thanks for writing to us. I can understand your concern. Physical inactivity leads to stiffness in joints specially after age of 35 years. It is advisable for you to take time out for exercise specially stretching exercises to get relief from pain. Increased body weight also puts pressure on back and lower limbs which leads to constant weight. Exercising, walking regularly and eating healthy nutritious diet can help to decrease weight and in turn decrease pain. Hope I could solve query. Feel free to write back.

Leg pain with backache. We should exclude intervertebral disc problem, osteophytes etc. X-ray of LS spine will determine the exact position. If nerve is compressed certain measures such as lumbar support or traction may be required in some cases.

My mother is 50 years old and us suffering from diabetes from the last 5 years. Now she is complaining of pain in the whole body. Pain is more in her wrist. There is also swelling in her legs. All tests are normal. Kidney function test and all that. We are unable to find the root cause of the pain. Kindly help us.

Pain could be due to diabetic arthropathy, neuropathy, calcium, vit d deficiency. Wrist pain might also be due to carpal tunnel syndrome. Get calcium and vit d3 levels, tsh, uric acid. Take tab. Remyelin d twice daily. Swelling in legs could be due to low proteins. Get an lft, urine r/e and if she's hypertensive bcoz of amlodipine if she's on it. Venous insufficiency might also cause leg swelling.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis is inflammatory pathology around the outer epicondyle of elbow, actually it is a degenerative tear in ecrb tendon. My advice for her is: - intensive ice packs - tennis elbow brace for sometime - take a short course anti-inflammatory medication which suits you. - physical therapy like ultrasonics and laser therapy if available. Let me know in 2 weeks time whether your symptoms are improving or not. Also try to avoid all activities which increase your pain. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

As a runner, what steps should I be taking to ensure the health of my feet and ankles before a big run?
Wear good sports shoes n for prevention wear knee caps so in future you r knee n ankle are not face problem. Try small steps n avoid long n high jump while practicing n planning for long term running then give 1 day interval so joints gets relaxed n that interval period convert that day into walking so stemina will remain same. Hope your satisfied for your question.
