. And there are 5 lumbar vertebrae and the 5th lumbar vertebrae is anatomically is located in the lower end where the body weight is taken and it is generally fused with if your pain is there for many years then it is chronic pain. Ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. It is suggestible to wear lumbo sacral belt which would help you to build the abdominal muscle tone which itself would make you feel better. You can also wear mcr chappels which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back. Sacral vertebrae. That is where the sciatic nerve passes by and the nerve gets compressed that's the reason you have pain and sensation is disturbed.

Remedies for general problems, cervical patients and low back pain patients

Due to the hectic schedule and regular bad eating habits and the changed style of relaxing with tv and high-headed pillow caused many health problems in the society. Here we focus on the remedies for general problems, cervical patients and low back pain patients.

For good mental and physical health, the stress and strain should be minimised or avoided by everyone. The patient must be assured of getting the right treatment. Daily rehabilitation is the principle of treatment, hence, prolong rest should be avoided at every cost. Ignorance of physical posture causes many problems; therefore postural education is of great importance for the patients. Patients should go for regular exercises like walking, swimming, exercises to increase the spinal mobility, maintain the range of motion with exercises, exercises for back muscles as advised by a physiotherapist. It is important to mention that personal hygiene is very important. One should not forget to take proper diet as advised by the physiotherapist. The patient should keep in mind the generated stress during their office hours; therefore, the working hours may be reduced or patients should take breaks in the day. One should avoid the high impact exercises such as jumping or running, strenuous sporting activity and sudden uncontrolled movements. Cars are an inevitable part of our daily routine but we should always use seat belts while driving. Many muscle relaxants are advised and thongs of advice are available in many forms today, but a patient should follow the guidelines of his or her physiotherapist and over use of muscle relaxants must be avoided.

Backache in young age is commonly due to 1. Muscle strain resulting from improper posture. 2. Intervertebral disc bulge or prolapse. Follow these to get relief. 1. Take anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen round the clock for pain relief 2. Take rest for 3 to 4 days but avoid total bed rest. 4. Do back strengthening and stretching exercises daily once pain is relieved. 5. Apply analgesic cream over back followed by warm fomentation. 6. Keep pillow behind your knees at bedtime.

60 years old Uncle is suffering from gouty arthritis. He gets acute attack very frequently due to high uric acid levels. Is there any permanent treatment for this? And suggest the diet details. Can he get best solution in ayurveda medicine? Please give valuable suggestion. Thanks.

Hi gout is a very severe disease, it affects joints, heart and kidneys. Most people forget that uric acid which deposits in joints can deposit in heart and kidneys too. So basically besides most painful joints it can kill also. Also as disease progresses the arthritis spreads and can have a devastating effect (google gouty arthritis, gouty top, gouty joint, gouty erosions images). The treatment is very simple, but to be taken continuously. Also its a widespread misconception that you should stop dals. Dals are very healthy source of protein, and they need not be stopped in gout. Gout is a very severe form of arthritis. It has acute and chronic phase. In acute phase requires immediate management in the form of certain drugs. Chronic phase requires treatment to prevent attacks and later lower uric acid. Also you do not need to stop dals or even non veg as is the common misconception. You can please choose a private consult if you need more detailed treatment and dietary advice. Attacks go gout can be treated with any form of therapy. But chronic gout requires a simple tablet in allopathy (like a single tablet in patients having high blood pressure), to prevent further attacks and prevent heart and kidney disease. No drug in ayurveda can do that.

Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain: -stop normal physical activity for the first few days. This will help relieve your symptoms and reduce any swelling in the area of the pain. -apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. --while sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back for the first 6 weeks after the pain begins. -avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -stretching and strengthening exercises are important. But, starting these exercises too soon after an injury can make your pain worse. -some physiotherapy treatment like ift current can give you some relief. -a full history of your problem should be taken and your movements assessed by a physiotherapist. Please consult a physiotherapist for the same.

What is bmd in bones? what are side effects of excessive calcium supplements?

MD - Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Ask Free Question
Dear, (bmd) is bone mineral density which calculates mineral matter per square cm in bones. It also means whether the bones have enough calcium in the matrix. Bones store calcium which is taken from the diet we consume. Normally calcium supplements will not have any side effects but are to be used in caution with people having high calcium levels in their blood or with hypertension. Excessive calcium supplementation is said to be associated with the risks of kidney stones, prostate cancer, constipation, calcium buildup in your blood vessels (calcified plaques), impaired absorption of iron and zinc (due to ionic competition). Calcium metabolism is complex involving the parathyroid gland, the kidneys, bones intestine and is regulated with vitamin d. Maintaining proper calcium homeostasis is the key function of the parathyroid glands and vitamin d. So you need to check calcium supplementation along with vitamin d. Please consult with your vitamin d levels.
