Natural Posture and Mechanical Low Back Pain

BPTh/BPT, MPTh/MPT

Natural Posture and Mechanical Low Back Pain

NATURAL POSTURE 

The side view of the human body in the standing position  shows that there is an inward curve in the small of the back just above the pelvis. This hollow in the low back is called the lumbar lordosis. The lumbar lordosis is a natural feature of the lumbar spine in all humans, having been formed during the evolutionary process. Our understanding of the function of the lumbar lordosis is an important feature.

When standing upright, the lordosis is naturally present, though varies from person to person. The lordosis is lost whenever the Iow back is rounded, and this usually occurs during sitting and bending forward. If the lordosis is lost often and for long enough periods, then low back problems may develop. The ligamentous stays become fatigued or over stretched, and may result in a painful episode.

MECHANICAL PAIN

This section on mechanical pain is very important, as it explains exactly why you hurt when you do. if you take the time to well understand this you will be more than halfway toward solving your problems.  Research has found that the better the patient understands the problem, the better will be the results of treatment.

Pain of mechanical origin occurs when the joint between two bones has been placed in a position that overstretches the surrounding  Lordosis ligaments and other soft tissues.This is true for mechanical pain in any joint of the body, including the spine. To help you understand how easily some mechanical pains can be produced, you may like to try a simple experiment.First, bend one finger backward,  until you feel a strain. If you cause the finger to remain in this strained position, you will initially feel minor discomfort only,but, as time passes, pain will eventually develop. In some cases,pain caused by prolonged stretching may take as much as an hour to appear.

Try the experiment once more,but now keep bending the finger past the point of strain until you feel pain. The sensation of pain is immediate. You have overstretched, and your pain warning system is telling you that to continue movement in that particular direction will cause damage.

Should you ignore the warning and continue to overstretch,damage will occur. Of course, the pain warning tells you to stop overstretching,and when you do so,the pain ceases immediately. No damage will have occurred to your finger and the pain will have gone.No lasting problems will arise from this short-lived strain providing you take note of the pain warning system.

If you fail to heed the warning and keep the finger in the overstretched position, the ligaments and surrounding soft tissues that hold the joint together will be tom. This tearing will result in an ache which continues even when you stop overstretching. The pain will continue even when the finger is at rest. The pain will increase with movement and reduce at rest but it will not cease until some healing has occurred. Healing may take several days but will be prolonged if, every day, you continue to apply the same strains to the finger.

 MECHANICAL LOW BACK PAIN

  • If an engineer were to examine which area in the back is subjected mostly to mechanical stress, he would conclude that most strain must be placed on that part of the spine which is located just above its junction with the pelvis. This conclusion is correct, for statistics show that back problems arise more often in the low back than in any other part of the spine.
  • Low back pain is not caused by draughts, chills, or the weather. It. was once believed that these weather-related phenomena were responsible for back and neck pains. Today our understanding is better, and it is generally agreed by specialists that most backache is caused by mechanical strains, similar to those described in the previous section.It is often thought that low back pain is caused by strained muscles.
  • Muscles, which are the source of power and cause movement,can indeed be overstretched or injured. This requires a considerable amount of force and does not often happen. 
  • Moreover,muscles usually heal very rapidly and seldom cause pain lasting for more than a week or two. On the other hand, whenever the impact of the injuring force is severe enough to affect the muscles, the underlying soft tissues and ligaments will be damaged as well. 
  • In fact, usually these tissues are damaged long before the muscles.
  • Most low back pain is caused by prolonged overstretching of ligaments and other surrounding soft tissues. Just as pain arises in the overstretched finger as I have described above, pain can also arise in the lower back when ligaments in this region are overstretched. Pain produced by overstretching in this manner is common and arises particularly when we develop poor postural habits.
  •  Whenever we remain in a relaxed position, be it standing, sitting, or lying, prolonged overstretching can easily occur.
  • When pain arises because we have allowed our posture to slouch,it is really our own fault and we have no one to blame but ourselves.This type of strain is easily avoided, and once we have been properly educated, the prevention of pain produced in this manner becomes our responsibility.
  • However, mechanical pain may also be caused by over stretchingof such severity that some tissues are actually damaged. Over stretching causing damage may occur when an outside force places an excessive strain on the low back. For example, this type of strain can occur due to a fall while playing tennis, or from a contact sport such as football where severe forces develop when players are tackled. 
  • Lifting excessive weights is also likely to cause overstretching and damage to the supporting ligaments of the spinal joints. These types of injury cannot easily be avoided as they occur unexpectedly and without warning signs.
  • When soft tissues surrounding a joint are overstretched, it is usually the ligaments that first give rise to pain. When the spinal joints are considered, there are additional factors, for the surrounding ligaments are also the retaining walls for the soft discs that act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae.
  •  Overstretching of these will, under certain circumstances, affect the discs. This may significantly influence or alter the intensity of the pain that you have, the distribution of the pain you feel, and the behavior of the pain, which may be made better or worse by certain movements or positions.
  • Complications of another sort arise when the ligament surrounding the disc is injured to such an extent that the disc loses  its ability to absorb shock and its outer wall becomes weakened. 
  • This allows the soft inside of the disc to bulge outward and, in  extreme cases, to burst through the outer ligament, which may cause severe pain. When the disc bulges far enough backward, it may press painfully on the sciatic nerve. This can cause some of the pains or other symptoms (numbness, sensation of pins and needles,,  weakness) that may be felt well away from the source of the trouble, for example in the lower leg or foot. 
  • Should the soft inside of the disc bulge excessively, the disc may  become severely distorted. This will cause the vertebrae to tilt forward or to one side and prevent the vertebrae from lining up  properly during movement. In this case some movements will be blocked partially or completely and any movement may cause severe pain. 
  • This is the reason why some people with severe back pain are forced to stand with the trunk off-centre or bent forward. Those of you who experience a sudden onset of pain and following this are unable to straighten up or move the back properly are likely to have some bulging of the soft disc material. This need not be cause for alarm. Once soft tissues are damaged, pain will be felt until healing is complete and function is fully restored. It is important that during the healing process you avoid movements that pull the healing surfaces apart. 
  • For instance, if you have overstretched ligaments of the lower back by bending forward, it is likely that any repetition of this movement will continue to open and separate the healing tissues, and this will further delay the repair of the damage. If, on the other hand, you avoid bending forward and instead keep a
  • hollow in the lower back, the damaged surfaces will remain together and healing will not be interrupted.It is difficult perhaps to visualize this process occurring in the lower back. Using the finger once more as an example may help understanding. Let us imagine that you have accidentally cut a the back of your knuckle with a sharp instrument. If you are to bend the injured finger joint every day, you would open up the wound and delay recovery. However by keeping the finger straight for about a week, you would allow the healing surfaces to remain together and complete healing would result. 
  • You could then commence bending the finger without risking any further damage.The same strategy works for the problems arising in the lower back. 
  • When tissues heal they form scar tissue. Scar tissue is less elastic than normal tissue and tends to shorten over time. If shortening occurs, movement may stretch the scars and produce pain. Unless appropriate exercises are performed to restore normal flexibility,the healed tissue may produce a continuous source of back pain and/or stiffness. Such problems can persist for years. 
  • Even though the original damage is repaired, the scar itself restricts movement and causes pain when stretched .

Cervical Spondylosis (Arthritis of the Neck) - Know Its Treatment!!

Cervical Spondylosis (Arthritis of the Neck) - Know Its Treatment!!

Cervical spondylosis is fast becoming the bane of modern life. An age-related wear and tear problem affecting the spinal discs in your neck, cervical spondylosis is increasingly affecting the young because of the use of cell phones, laptops and the like.

Cervical spondylosis is a general term used to define shrinkage of discs in between vertebrae in the neck region. Along with disc degeneration, bony projections also form in the area and are called bone spurs.
Other causes of cervical spondylosis are dehydrated discs. Discs are thick, pad-like cushions in between vertebrae that act as shock absorbers. They are made of a gel- like material that can dry over time. This causes the spinal vertebrae to rub together causing pain. The discs also crack which allows the internal gel-like material to spill out and impinge on spinal nerves causing symptoms.

There is a narrowing of the space required by the spinal cord and nerves that emanate in the upper spine to go to various parts of the body. Pinching of these nerves can cause alarming symptoms like:

  1. Numbness and weakness in your arms, hands, legs and feet
  2. Lack of coordination and difficulty in walking
  3. Loss of bladder or bowel movement
  4. Stiffness and pain in neck

Treatment and management
Usually, cervical spondylosis doesn’t cause any symptoms. But when you start experiencing pain, stiffness and weakness of muscles, it’s best to go to a doctor who will diagnose the problem and then treat it.
Treatment for cervical spondylosis depends on the severity of your symptoms. Its goal is to get rid of pain, allow you to carry on your daily activities and prevent any permanent damage to your spinal cord and nerves.

Medicines

  1. Anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed to reduce pain and inflammation. Example Ibuprofen.
  2. Corticosteroids are oral medications to get rid of the severe pain. If these don’t work, your doctor can suggest steroid injections.
  3. Muscle relaxants medicines relax the muscles in the upper part of the spine and help in curing neck pain and stiffness
  4. Anti-seizure medications are also prescribed to dull the pain of damaged nerves in the spine. These include epilepsy medications, such as gabapentin and pregabalin.

Physiotherapy

  1. Non surgical treatments are usually very effective in treating cervical spondylosis and surgery is usually not required. Physiotherapy is a bulwark for patients as it helps manage the condition very well.
  2. Neck exercises that help stretch and strengthen muscles in your neck and shoulders can help manage debilitating symptoms of cervical spondylosis.
  3. Few patients also benefit from traction, which can help provide more space for nerve roots within the spine.

Surgery

  1. Surgery is the last resort for treating cervical spondylosis.
  2. It is suggested when non-surgical treatments fail and the pain and neurological signs such as weakness in your arms or legs get worse.
  3. It is done to create more room for your spinal cord and nerve roots.

Cervical spondylosis surgery typically involves removing:

  1. Herniated disk
  2. Bone spurs
  3. Part of a vertebra. 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

high cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. you should be avoid bad habits ,fatty meal/oily foods/junk/fast foods/alcohol/smoking/noo-veg. take whole grain meal/oats/dalia/green veg./fruits/juice/ use garlic . you can take also cap. ecosprin gold-10 at night. and consult cardiologist.

I am 64 yrs having sugar, bp and cholesterol, taking medications. Please of late having problem while walking causing imbalance. Please ct scan of brain done - no probs - report says - please age related cerebral and celebellar atrophy. Done some physio, but no improvement, your valued opinion solicited.

MPT, BPT
Physiotherapist, Chennai
Dear , if you' re having imbalance problems then you should do specific balance exercises. Start with simple exercises like in sitting: touch your nose with your finger tip, touch a point in front of you (this can be done by placing a sticker on a wall) making sure you touch the center of the point, walking in a straight line, walking around obstacles. Initially these exercises may prove to be challenging but as you go along it gets easier. Start with one exercise at a time and everyday do the next exercise along with the previous day' s exercise. It takes 3 months for the improvement to be of significant level. If you require anymore clarifications please feel free to contact me. Preethi mathew (mpt, maiap) neuro-physiotherapist

Hi My mom is 60 and she is having knee pain since 3 or 4 years.So what option of treatment ? is the surgery is only easy and permanent cure ?

DNB Rheumatology, Grad. Cert. Paed. Rheumat, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Rheumatologist, Bangalore
Has osteoarthritis. The diagnosis needs to confirmed. If in fact she has osteoarthritis then she needs to be assessed for comorbidities and needs to be put on an intensive exercise program with control of pain using safe pain modfiying medications instead of pain killers. This can be done best by a rheumatologist. The final option is surgery. Surgery is done by an orthopedician. Nowadays if surgery is done properly the risk of failure is < 5%. If you let me know where you live I can give you a reference of a nearby rheumatologist. You can contact me via my website www.Rheumatologybangalore.Com You can get more information regarding osteoarthritis from the document below.

It can be one of the reasons. It needs to be thoroughly investigated before pin-pointing the reason. The best way ahead is to make up your mind to lead a healthy way of life so that you can relax and enjoy good health. A few simple steps if implemented with sincerity can go a long way in reducing your pain. Plan a strategy to quit smoking ( alcohol also if you are taking it daily ). well planned diet, exercise and rest are the hallmark of good health. If you can add Yoga ( along with pranayam and meditation ) in your life then the improvement will be enhanced. Later you can also try Homeopathy to balance the metabolism and bring about healing.
