Can Physiotherapy Help Lower Back Pain?

Can Physiotherapy Help Lower Back Pain?

Low back pain is one of the most common medical problems and occurs due to injury associated with the nerves, bones, and muscles of the back. The pain can vary from a sharp shooting pain that happens at various intervals to a gnawing pain that can last for weeks on end. While the former can go away with some muscle relaxant, the latter may need a combination of medications and exercise.

Common reasons include improper sleeping posture, lifting, fracture, lack of exercise, disk injuries, arthritis, and many more. Most of these instances would lead to medium to long term pain that will not subside on its own. Physiotherapy has been proven to provide very good relief and render it pain-free.

The aim of physiotherapy is 3-fold - reduce pain, improve movement, and maintain the spinal function in the long run. Most often, the therapy sessions would last for about 4 weeks when the regular course of medications have not helped much.

The nerves, muscles, bones, and disks of the low back are supported by the abdominal muscles and the back muscles. The intent of the exercise is to strengthen these two sets of muscles so that the spine/low back per se is not very susceptible to injury.  The exercises would be a combination of stretching followed by strengthening and conditioning, all aimed at these two sets of muscles.

Some common exercises include bottom to heels stretch, knee rolls, back extensions, deep abdominal strengthening, and pelvic tilts.

In addition to being used a sole means of treatment, physiotherapy also is used in back pain to treat severe cases both pre and post surgically. What is corrected by surgery needs to be enhanced by the regular exercises as prescribed by the doctor.

One disclaimer that a doctor might want to give is that the physiotherapy may not be beneficial if exercises are not done properly or if the patients don't adhere to the scheduled prescription. The long-term success depends not just on getting the relief but on following the maintenance exercises that are prescribed. This is more important and helps avoid relapse of the back pain.  A good posture and improved core stability with ongoing exercises is the key to success of physiotherapy in low back pain. 

While most people consider low back pain as a chronic condition, it can be managed effectively. It is important to realize that there is no overnight cure and that it may not get better on its own. Physiotherapy is a very good intervention; however, it will depend on the severity of pain and how it affects the patient's lifestyle. 
 

Hi doctor, on 25 dec my wife complained of pain in her right shoulder, after taking a few pain killers from local doctor we consulted a ortho and he also gave a 2 week course of pain killer but as the pain did not subside he asked for a chest xray which was done on 23 feb 19 which revealed bilateral hilar prominent ?vascular then on admission in the hospital a mri showed multiple enlarged mediastinal and biletaralhilar lymph nodes" report attached" further hrct with contrast showed mediastinal and biletaralhilar matted necrotic lymphadenopathy etc. Suggestive of kochs. Later did pet scan and reports "are as attached" also did a ct guided biopsy "reports attached" did multiple blood test (all reports attached) doctors suspected sarcoidosis and discharged without and any treatment saying it will take time and the body will cure itself. On consulting a welknown chest specialist on 18 march 2019 he came to a conclusion that tb medication should be started and also got the mantoux test done which showed 22. 5 cms positive result, he also on my request started steroid 60 mg per day as my wife had terrible back pain radiating to the front and stomach for the whole month of feb to mid march which never subsided even one bit without pain killers, now with one month of tb medication and steroids which is tapered to 20 per day she is 50 % better where pain is concerned, but dos, nt seem to get better than 50% my questions sir are :with all the reports attached do you feel that the diagnosis is on the right track when will she get more better as the pain is still there had lost 5 kgs in the last 2 months and not gained any yet (weight stays constant on 65 kgs) as the steroids power reduces will the pain resurface how long to a complete recovery. Awaiting your valuable reply.

If you have leg pain then you have to rule out the casues for having leg pain. First of all check your weight and your haemoglobin levels, as anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there are no issues with the knee joint or back pain. If not if the pain radiates down the back of thigh and legs then it might be due to sciatica. Kindly consult the nearby physiotherapist. Hope you recover soon from the leg pain. Pain in the back while walking and standingpain in the right legif you have leg pain please check your body weight and your hemoglobin levels, as anemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain.

And also should check whether you have flat foot on the right leg that also might be the reason to have pain in one particular leg pain in the left side of the leg/thighthe compression of the sciatic nerve should be around the right side that's the reason you have pain in the left side.

Ayurveda is a very old system of medicine, which originated in India.

  8. Ginger: Ginger is biologically called Zingiber Officinale. These can be easily included in your diet and go a long way in curbing knee pain.

Back Pain - When Is Specialist Required To Intervene?

Back Pain - When Is Specialist Required To Intervene?

Pain is unpleasant suffering caused by injury or illness. Back pain may be sudden/constant, dull, severe or not responding to short rest and medication. Constant pain in back in any region of the spine for more than few days to weeks needs intervention.

Pain which is intense especially at night requires an urgent visit to a specialist.

Sudden onset of pain in back with or without injury needs urgent attention.

Back pain with difficulty in walking, pain while getting up from position of comfort, pain during change of posture or pain after prolonged sitting (for work) can lead to serious permanent damage, if left untreated.

Pain which travels to one or both legs may be due to pressure on the nerve/s and if left untreated for long can lead to permanent weakness or damage.

Pain associated with numbness, tingling or weakness in legs, especially below the knees, commonly called Sciatica, needs to be investigated. Various spinal ailments can lead to weakness in one or two limbs or all four limbs. There may be associated or isolated numbness (loss of sensation to touch, pain or temperature) without back pain.

Numbness, tingling or weakness may be the only symptoms without any complaint or without a history of back pain.

Problems related to bladder control which may be difficult to control, hesitancy in passing or dribbling of urine. There may be associated with constipation. Loss of bowel/bladder control is caused by pressure on spinal cord &/or nerves which may be due to injury, infection, disc prolapse or tumor.

Sudden swelling and redness in the back usually happen after an injury or accident but sometimes are signs of underlying severe illness.

Loss of normal shape/curvatures of spine can present with or without pain. It can lead to forward, sideways or rarely backward bending.

Unintentional weight loss, loss of appetite, evening rise of fever or disturbed sleep with associated back pain/weakness/numbness needs to visit a specialist.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear - Quick Recovery Tips For You!

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear - Quick Recovery Tips For You!

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament or ACL tear is a very common problem with athletes and with people who have an active lifestyle. In fact, this can also be caused by any accident due to sudden movement.

Importance of ACL-

The ACL is the supporting ligament, which runs diagonally from back to front right in the middle of the knee, connecting the femur bone and the tibia, and helps the tibia not to come before the femur. Thus the balance of the knee during back and forth movements and the entire stability of the knee joint is secured by this very important piece of ligament.

What leads to an injury to the ACL?

Here are a few actions that may result in a ligament tear.

  1. Sudden stopping while running or slowing down from a fast speed

  2. Sudden change in direction

  3. Uncontrolled jumping from a height

  4. Direct hitting with an object or person

What happens when the ACL is torn?

If the ACL is torn, the stability of your knee is gone, and you feel as if you have no control over the joint. Moreover, it causes extreme pain and instant swelling. Swelling usually appears within 24 hours of the injury.

Treatment of ACL Injury-

Recovery from an ACL tear is possible only after a surgery. Without surgery, the affected will not be able to return to sports or athletics, or may not be able to run and make swift movements again as before. However, to avoid surgery, there are non-invasive treatments for the aged and people who require moving less.

  • Non-invasive Treatment: Physical therapy and range of motion exercise is for free knee movement but does not replace the ACL reconstruction. This is also a prerequisite for the surgery to have a free ROM and at the same time it is a requirement for those not getting operated upon for any reason.

  • Surgical Treatment: Once the swelling subsides, surgeons would plan for an Arthroscopic (Key-Hole Surgery) ACL reconstruction. In this Surgeon makes a graft of a tendon. This graft is inserted into the joint and fixed in anatomical position in femur and tibia Arthroscopically so that the newly created ACL functions like the natural one. This is the only way to get back the ligament in whole as the torn ligament cannot be stitched. Surgery is done through arthroscope and recovery time is 15 days for resuming day to day activities and 3 to 6 month for resuming sports activities with continued physical therapy after the surgery.
