Hi if you have localized back pain with - no neurological symptoms like numbness, paresthesia, weakness in limbs etc, my advice is: - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a physiotherapist and then at home. - avoid forward bending, lifting heavy weights etc - take an analgesic like diclofenac or something which suits your body for 5-7 days - take muscle relaxant for same time as analgesic to relieve muscle spasm - ice packs at the site of pain, muscle spasm - local analgesic spray can be used but no massage is required let me know in a week time how you are feeling. I will actually ask you to get x ray of involved region of spine (ap & lateral) and send reports across to me so that I can advise further in a better manner. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I had accident last year in which my leg bone was broken completely and I have still lost of pain so what can I do

Generally a patient���s fracture needs to be completely healed, which can be determined by x-rays. After that, return to full strength and function, which often involves long periods of work with a physiotherapist, is needed. The whole process can take many months or longer.

Here most of every one commented on back pain. I know it is commonest problem. And it needs to be addressed.

Exercise and advice what all physios have posted are excellent.

List out as below:-
Muscle strength
aerobic conditioning
Stretching muscle
Posture
Weight loss to change angle of the spine
Dynamic and static stretching
Important of all neural stretch to maintain neural flexibility as most of the sedentary people develop stiff muscles and that leads to decrease neural mobility with due to pinching or getting compressed within the muscles or entry and exit between the muscles. Main nerves for neural stretch is sciatic nerve.
that is the commonest affected. Please do consider in your practices as it will provide a very good outcome for back pain.

and this has to be learned and practice under physiotherapist suprvision

thanks

Physiotherapy Management of Ankylosing Spondylitis

Physiotherapy Management of Ankylosing Spondylitis

In the early stages of the disease a flattening of the lumbar curve may occur. Then, with increasing pain and a flexed posture, the thoracic curve can become more accentuated. If unchecked, this can be followed by a loss of cervical curve and a protracted cervical spine develops as an attempt to compensate for the forward flexion. As the hips become more flexed, hip flexion contractures can occur and the knees flex to improve balance and vision. Poor posture results in muscle fatigue, weakness, disability and a poor body image.Good management of the disease should prevent poor posture from occurring,although any fusion may be delayed and not halted. Note especially the knee flexion and hip flexion deformities. The reason for these deformities is that,if the spine is constantly flexed, the patient would fall over forwards. By flexing the knees and hips, the person shifts the line of gravity back within the base to become more stable.

AIMS OF PHYSIOTHERAPY MANAGEMENT:

The overall aims are to minimize deformity and disability and to improve well being, thereby maintaining normal function and improving the person’s quality of life. 

Specifically these aims can be achieved by:  

  •  Advising on postural  awareness and ergonomics  
  • Reducing pain 
  • Maintaining and improving posture and function by a) increasing mobility of spinal, costo vertebral and peripheral joints, b) strengthening the antigravity muscles,     and c) stretching specific muscle groups 
  • Improving and maintaining cardiovascular fitness 
  • Monitoring posture, mobility and function through regular assessment 
  • Devising and monitoring a home program of specific exercises that are suitable and consistent with  long-term compliance  
  • Imparting knowledge about the disease and its management Improving the person’s psychological state, coping strategies and exercise compliance.
  •  

PAIN  IN  ANKYLOSING  SPONDYLITIS

Pain may vary from low grade discomfort to intense pain. 

Typically, pain is aggravated and is often reduced by exercise. The perception of pain can be influenced by several factors, including fatigue. 

Physiotherapy modalities such as ultrasound, dry needling, and transcutanous nerve stimulation, mega pulse and gentle spinal mobilization can be effective, especially for localized pain.

If the person has not exercised recently, exercises will need to be commenced gradually and the person warned that initially they may provoke pain. 

Wearing supportive shock-absorbing shoes can decrease the jarring effect of walking on hard surfaces and reduce the likelihood of aggravating the pain. Hot packs can reduce pain.

I am suffering several pain in legs when I have started running give me some tips.
For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

This pain may be due to muscular sprain. Sometimes during exercise some muscle get over stretched and then it gives symptoms like prickling or burning sensations. So you should take some muscle relaxant like paracetamol for 5 days twice a day and do hot fomentation twice a day over the affected area. You will be fine in next seven days. Don't do any exercise for next 15 days.
