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.

I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.

Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Diseases of the spine Introduction:- The part of the nervous systems that exits in the spinal canal is called ‘The Spine’. There are several types of diseases related to the spinal cord:- Neuralgic weakness- It occurs due to occurring excessive weakness in the nerves. Irritation of the spine- Pain starts in the back and waist of the patient. Pain is aggravated in the spinal cord or other organs due to pressing or holding on the back and the waist or by doing little more hard work. It is due to occurring weakness in the nerve. Mostly, this type of disease occurs in the fair sex (female) compared to the male. Patient feels crawling sensation or insensitiveness in the body with emission (night fall), irritation of the bladder. 

 Treatment by different drugs:-

1. Arg-nit- If irritation of the spine is occurring with other symptoms as- headache, insensitiveness of the several organs, stomachache, flatulence, constipation, etc., 6 potency of this drug can be used for its treatment. 2. Picric-acid- For the treatment of burning sensation in the spinal cord, weakness of the legs, pain from the spinal cord to the forehead, 30 potency of this drug can be used.

4. Agaricus- If this disease has occurred in weak women, using 3 potency of this drug is very effective to cure this disease. Several types of other drugs can be also used to cure this disease as- Silica 30, Sulphur 30, Ignatiia 3, Cimicifuga 3, Bell 3, Secale 3, Cocculus 6 or Asafoetida 3, etc. Patient should take bath with cold water or wash his back with hot water before the treatment. Nutritive diet should be taken and living in an open air.

5. Thuja- If this disease has occurred due to taking additional tea, for the treatment of it, Thuja 6 is used.

Ars 6, Hypericum 3, Sulphur 30 or Rhus-tox 6 can be also used to cure this disease.

Spinal apoplexy:- Symptoms like paralysis or apoplexy are found due to bleeding in the spinal cord or inside the membrane that covers the spinal cord.  If the tongue, hands and legs become insensitive due to bleeding in this disease, using Guaiacum 3 helps to cure this disease.

When pain occurs in the body that is aggravated by movement with such symptoms, for the treatment of it, using Bryonia 3 is appropriate. If the patient becomes unconscious with the feeling of much lethargy and his body starts shivering, Bryonia 1x can be used to cure the patient, but if symptoms like paralysis are found in the patient, Oxalic acid 3 should be used for its treatment.

Sometimes, paralysis attacks the patient suffering from this disease within few hours. If paralysis attacks after few hours of the feeling of burning sensation of the spinal cord, swelling occurs in his entire spinal cord. His body is bended backward. Sometimes the eyes remain open, but does not visible anything. Sometimes, deafness also occurs with the feeling of fast laziness. This fever occurs due to a type of infectious bacteria. This disease occurs also in the young age, winter season and by avoiding healthy rules. Sometimes, pimples are also appear (erupt) on the face due to this disease.
