What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?
Spine block injection is a very vague terminology. Details provided by you are little to give accurate information. For back pain due to disc problems an injection called Epidural steroid injection is done by pain specialist. This works very well to decrease pain and patient can do effective physiotherapy. Epidural injection is a type of spine injection. The drug is injected in epidural space (surrounding the spinal cord) which decreases the inflammation and pain of disc pressing on nerve. The procedure is done in operation theatre by interventional pain specialist using X Ray machine. It relieves pain and patient can easily start physiotherapy after this. Back pain associated with leg weakness, loss of control over urine and stools requires urgent decompression surgery. In your case you should get consultation with a pain specialist and get MRI Lumbo sacral spine done and proceed accordingly with further treatment.

Bisphosphonates - How Long Should Osteoporosis Patients Take Them?

Bisphosphonates - How Long Should Osteoporosis Patients Take Them?

Bisphosphonates are the most commonly prescribed medicine for osteoporosis patients. This medicine is taken for no more than three to five years in a stretch. A doctor typically takes a call after this time period to find out whether it is suitable for the patient to continue the medicine for a longer time based on the individual risk factors.

Bisphosphonates contain four main ingredients namely Relcast, Fosamax, Boniva and Atelvia. This medicine slows the rate of bone loss and reduces the risk of fracture. This being said, there are some potential side effects of Bisphosphonates as well:

  1. Problems in the jawbone: Consumption of Bisphosphonates can lead to a condition known as the osteonecrosis. This is a disease of the jawbone swelling, pain, and infection of the jawbone. The risk increases if a patient goes through an invasive surgery such as tooth extraction.
  2. Thigh bone fracture: Prolonged intake of Bisphosphonates is believed to be a rare kind of thigh fracture known as the atypical femoral fracture. This is very similar to a stress fracture that causes subtle pain and worsens with time.
  3. Stomach upset: Bisphosphonates intake can lead to oesophageal ulcers and sharp pain in the abdomen. It can also lead to mild fever lasting for a time period of 2-3 days along with upset stomach and body ache. This symptom mostly occurs when there is an irregularity in taking the medicine.

Choosing the right Bisphosphonates:
Drugs of the Bisphosphonates class are similar in nature. While some vary in terms of maintaining potency and bone density, the overall effectiveness of this drug is on the higher side. The common aim of this drug is to reduce the rate of fracture. The decision of choosing a drug over another depends on factors such as cost, preference, convenience and tenacity to stick to the exact dosage. Doctors often prescribe the monthly dosage at one go. The dosage can also be prescribed on a weekly basis depending on the patient’s convenience.

The effect of Bisphosphonates:
Consumption of intravenous Bisphosphonates is considered to be the best medicine for fracture prevention. It is, therefore, very unlikely that a patient with osteoporosis will see additional improvement once he has taken Bisphosphonates for more than three years. This is perhaps the reason why most doctors suggest stopping this medicine after a patient consumes this for more than 3 years. Some other factors that a doctor considers while making this decision include past history of fractures, the age of the patient and the present bone density. If however, the bone density gets worse, a doctor can always restart Bisphosphonates until further improvement is witnessed. This again depends on the patient’s medical condition at the time of check-up. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Gentle massage over the affected part with lukewarm herbal pain relieving oil for 20 minutes followed by hot fomentation. It will relax the muscles and the veins of your affected part improving the blood supply to the organ and giving strength to it. Please avoid over-use of the part affected i. E. Lifting weight - pushing or pulling heavy objects. Give proper rest to the part - let it heal with the time. This will greatly help. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. For that you may consult me privately over lybrate. Please update with your valuable feedback after 15 days.

Hi sir, I am 27 years old. About a 2 day ago I went to the gym and was doing wrist curls with 15lb dumbbells. They were a little heavy but that's what I used to do daily when I was going to the gym on a consistent basis. It hurt my right hand while I was doing the wrist curls, well two days after and ever since I have pretty bad pain in my wrist when I rotate my hand in a right direction only. The pain is on the right side of my wrist only and is pretty painful when I do twist my hand. It will not happen when I rotate my hand other direction. I am not able to lift little heavy weight.

Hello, Avoid doing any wrist exercises for sometime if you are willing to participate in championship next month. Medication: Meantime, take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. And wrap crepe bandage over it. Get back to me thereafter.

Your primary problem is indigestion. Due to indigestion a toxin gets accumulated in joints, which is called ama visha in ayurveda. It resembles rhumatic pain. For proper treatment, your digestion needs to be corrected. Start having milk boiled with turmeric & garlic daily. This will reduce the pain.
