The shoulder is the most movable joint in the human body. Swelling, damage, or bone changes around the rotator cuff can cause shoulder pain. *here are some tips for helping shoulder pain get better: 1> put ice on the shoulder area for 15 minutes, then leave it off for 15 minutes. Do this 3 to 4 times a day for 2 to 3 days. Wrap the ice in cloth. Do not put ice directly on the skin because this can result in frostbite. 2> rest your shoulder for the next few days. Do not perform any movement which causes pain in the shoulder. 3> slowly return to your regular activities. 4> learn exercises to stretch and strengthen your rotator cuff tendons and shoulder muscles from physiotherapist.

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long term for low back pain due to disc problem?
Dear Alok, Namaskar, It is a procedure by which a medicine is injected either in the spinal canal ( Epi dural space ) OR in the small arthritic joints of the Spinal Column.... For you it is epi dural , given in disc problems ( when patient is not to be operated and also not responding to the Non- Operative treatment )... It depends on patient to patient and his extent of problem...that this Block works in terms of Time... Sometimes it needs repetition too... Take care.

I am 30 year female I have back pain last one year. I was done exray but its normal. Please suggest me.

I am 30 year female I have back pain last one year. I was done exray but its normal. Please suggest me.
If xray report is normal then I would recommend you to take some precautions and once contact your near by physiotherapist as a physiotherapist will give your physio modalities along with some exercises to help widen the spaces between the vertebrae which hence reduce pressure on the nerves. I am recommending you some physio care please note: precautions: 1. Avoid forward bending, if required then bend your knees first and then bend forward. 2. Avoid weight lifting. 3. Avoid standing in the one position for a long time. 4. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back. Physio care: advice you to contact near by physio to get treatment. In the mean time please follow the i-care treatment that is designed by me specially for back or neck pain. Have tested on many patients and got pain relief: take rest, doesn't mean a complete bed rest. Do not over exert your body. Work take rest and then work so that you do not feel tired and started paining. Treatment- 1. Apply ice or heat (whichever suits you) directly to the area of low back pain will decrease swelling and inflammation, and ease your discomfort. Apple it for 10 to 15 minutes only. 2. Relaxing for 5 minutes after ice or heat treatment. Apply any pain relieving ointment eg - volini or oraflame gel etc. Make sure not to do massage with the gel, it should not penetrate the body. 3. Again relax your body for 5 minutes and perform some normal back extension and hamstring stretching exercises to get relief from your pain. Please take advice from physio as he/she will guide you proper exercise plan which will be beneficial for you after checking grade of your back pain.

Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Hello don't get upset, as nowadays due to poor lifestyle and lack of exercise low back pain has become very common. But it can be cured by making small changes in lifestyle. 1) start physiotherapy sessions and learn spine exercise 2) do not lift heavy weights. 3) do not sit in 1 position for very long 4) start strengthening exercises for back and core muscles under supervision of skilled physiotherapist do reply for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

Low-impact exercise for joints -

What exercises are good to protect your joints? The best choices are low-impact options like walking, bicycling, and swimming. That's because high-impact, pounding, and jarring exercises can increase the risk of joint injuries and may slowly cause cartilage damage. Light weight-lifting exercises should also be included. But if you already have arthritis, first speak with your physiotherapist.

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.

Instructions for People With Acute Low Back Pain

Instructions for People With Acute Low Back Pain

NSTRUCTIONS FOR PEOPLE WITH ACUTE LOW BACK PAIN

  • The simple rule is that if bending forward has been the cause of over stretching, bending backward should rectify this problem and reduce any resultant distortion. You must restore the lordosis slowly and with caution, never quickly or with jerky movements. You must allow some time for the distorted joint to regain its normal shape and position: a sudden or violent movement may retard this process, increase the strain in and around the affected joint, and thus result in an increase of low back pain .
  • Remember, when commencing the exercises, some increase of mid line low back pain can be expected. Some exercises will only be effective when you actually move into the pain while exercising. You should feel some pain when doing these exercises, but you should never have a lasting increase in pain which remains present the following day.When in acute pain, you must, apart from exercising, make certain adjustments in your daily activities. These adjustments forma very important aspect of self-treatment. If you do not follow the instructions given below, you will unnecessarily delay the healing process. This is entirely your responsibility.Maintain your lumbar lordosis at all times. 
  • Slouched sitting and bending forward as in touching the toes will only increase the pressure in the joints, stretch and weaken the supporting structures,and lead to further damage in the low back. If you slouch you will have discomfort and pain. 

Good posture is the key to spinal comfort. Sit as little as possible, and then for short periods only. 

  • If you must sit, choose a firm, high chair with a straight back, make sure that you have an adequate lordosis, and use a lumbar roll to support the low back. Avoid sitting on a low, soft couch with the legs straight out in front as in sitting up in bed or in the bath; both these situations force you to lose the lordosis. When getting up from the sitting position, you should attempt to maintain the lordosis: move to the front of the seat, stand up by straightening the legs and avoid bending forward at the waist.
  • Drive the car as little as possible; it is better to be a passenger than to drive yourself. If you must drive, your seat should be far enough back from the steering wheel to allow you to drive with your arms relatively straight. 
  • With the arms straight, your upper body is held back and you are prevented from slouching; this allows full benefit to be obtained from the lumbar roll, which should always be used when driving. Avoid activities which require bending forward or stooping. Many activities can be modified adequately to enable maintenance of the lordosis. It is possible to maintain the correct posture when vacuuming in the standing position; it is also possible to maintain a correct lordosis by going down on all fours when gardening, making beds, etc.
  • If you have acute low back pain, you should not lift at all. If you must lift, you should avoid objects that are awkward to handle or heavier than 30 pounds (15 kg). At all times you must use the correct lifting technique.
  •  If you are uncomfortable at night, you may benefit from a supportive roll around your waist. For most people, it is recommended that the mattress should not be too hard but well supported by a firm base.
  •  If your bed sags, slats or a sheet of plywood between mattress and base will straighten it, or else you can have the mattress placed on the floor.When getting up from lying, you should keep your back in lordosis: tum on one side, draw both knees up, drop the feet over the edge of the bed, raise yourself to the sitting position by pushing your upper body up with your hands, and avoid bending forward at the waist. Stand up from sitting as described before.
  • Avoid coughing and sneezing while you are sitting or bending forward. You should stand and bend backward if you are forced to cough or sneeze.Avoid those positions and movements which initially caused your problems. You must allow some time for healing to take place.
