My mother had continuous pain in her knees and after examining the x-ray of knees, the lab attendant classified it has the problem of arthritis. Please tell the right medication and precautions.
I have the problem of PIVD-L4-L5 (L), which is detected 1 month back. Neuro surgeon advised surgery due to severity of clinical symptoms which is shown in MRI. As per advice of neuro surgeon I agreed to go for surgery and after PA-check up when I go to take date of operation, Surgeon had advised to wait for 6 month. My case in symptomatic, it is not severe but as per report it is severe. What should I do- (1) go for operation (2) try some others therapy like Naturopathy, homeopathy, yoga etc. (3) follow instruction of surgeon and wait for further status. (4) or others options which I couldn't mention. I am working in an environment where I have to be physically active and I can not avoid it. Please give me a suitable advice and method to treat my disease/problem.
Bending over the sink to shave, wash your face, or brush your teeth can put tremendous pressure on the lumbar discs, especially for the first hour and a half after rising. Shaving in the shower helps to limit bending at the waist. An inexpensive mirror placed in the shower can help reduce disc irritation. Also, remember that the first hour and a half in the morning is the most dangerous time to bend forward at the waist. Always limit bending at the waist, but especially early in the day.
- Shaving in the shower will protect the lumbar disc by eliminating the need to bend over the sink.
- You may avoid early morning flexion by also brushing your teeth in the shower. To prevent injury while shaving or brushing your teeth at the sink, use a foot stool for one leg and pivot at the hips. Use your free hand to provide additional support on the countertop.
