I have disc bulge and getting pain in my left leg. I have MRI report my nerve is compressed of left leg.
If it's small disc bulge then it's treated with medication, exercises, physiotherapy. If no much relief then needs epidural steroid injection. Last resort with no improvement then needs discectomy.

Tip to prevent back pain during gardening

BPTh/BPT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Noida
Tip to prevent back pain during gardening

YARD WORK

MOWING THE LAWN:

This can be a great strengthener. Maintain good alignment and relaxed breathing. Avoid slumping or overarching the low back keeps your pelvis level. If the vibration of the mower seems to aggravate your symptoms, try thick gloves or use foam tape to insulate the handles.

GARDENING LOW TO THE GROUND:

(PLANTING, WEEDING, EDGING):

Maintain good squatting methods. Also, try kneeling, Half Kneeling, and sitting on your heels
There is a no. of helpful garden products that assist with these positions, providing knee cushioning and something to push up off when going down. Be sure to stand, stretch up and backward, walk after being in these bent-over positions.

SWEEPING/RAKING:

These activities are great overall strengtheners. Use an exaggerated, wide base stance and keep your, head, shoulder, pelvis, balanced on the top of each other and facing in the same direction. Reach and pull with your legs and arms, not your back. Rake and sweep in different directions by pivoting your back leg and moving your whole body single, relaxed unit. After sweeping and raking, do neck strengthening and decompression and neck release exercises.

REACHING UP TO PAINT, PRUNE, AND CLEAN WINDOWS:

This can be good upper back, arm, and abdominal strengthener. Use ladder or step stool to keep from aching your low back and letting your abdomen and buttocks; stick out; make sure you keep your chest up, your pelvis level, and your head and neck in a neutral position. If you are uncomfortable after doing these activities try doing knee to chest neck strengthening and decompression, and/or release exercises.

DIGGING HOLES/ SHOVELING SNOW:
CAUTION:

These activities carry a high-risk aggravation and/re-injury of most neck and low back problems; they are not good form of exercises. If you have to perform these activities, avoid rounding out your spine and attempting to lift with your spine in a rounded position. Put your legs in a front to back step position and shift your weight through your legs. Keep your chest up and your buttocks sticking out that is squat instead of bend. Keep your arms flexed and lift by straightening your legs. When you start to get tired or sore stop! Stretch up and backward, walk and wait a while before continuing. Specially designed, bent-handled snow shovels make the job a little easier.

WASHING THE CAR:

This is a good strengthener for arms and legs if you attempt good bending methods. Especially helpful are oil derrick methods, squatting, and taking weight through both hands. Keep the low back relatively straight and relaxed, and work those legs by squatting and shifting.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake.

7 Tips For Good Bone Health

M.Sc. in Dietetics and Food Service Management , Post Graduate Diploma In Computer Application, P.G.Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics , B.Sc.Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai

1. Eat calcium-rich foods

In addition to dairy products, choose fish with bones such as salmon, sardines or whitebait. For additional benefits, serve them with a side of dark leafy green vegetables or broccoli. Almonds, dried figs, fortified tofu and soy milk are also calcium-rich choices, says registered dietitian laura jeffers, med, rd, ld.

2. Take calcium supplements

The u. S. Recommended daily allowance for calcium is 1, 000 mg a day during your 20s, 30s and 40s. But your need rises as you age. Check with your doctor before starting supplements to find out what amount is right for you. For example, after menopause, most women need 1000 to 1, 500 mg a day unless they take hormone therapy. Your body only absorbs 500 mg of calcium at a time, Ms. Jeffers notes, so spread your consumption out over the course of the day.


3. Add d to your day

To help absorb calcium, most adults need 1, 000 to 2, 000 iu of vitamin d daily, combined calcium-vitamin d pills usually do not meet this requirement. And most of us who live north of atlanta do not get enough vitamin d the old-fashioned way — from the sun. Taking a vitamin d supplement will ensure you meet your daily needs.


4. Start weight-bearing exercises

To boost your bone strength, try exercise that “loads” or compresses your bones, says exercise physiologist heather nettle, ma. “running, jogging, high-impact aerobics, repetitive stair climbing, dancing, tennis and basketball are best for building bones. But if you have osteopenia, osteoporosis or arthritis, try walking or using an elliptical or other machine,” she says. Be sure to clear any exercise plans with your doctor first.


5. Don’t smoke, and don’t drink excessively

Bad news for bad habits: loss of bone mineral density is associated with tobacco use and excessive alcohol consumption, Dr. Sikon says. If you smoke, look into a program to help you quit. If you drink, stick to no more than one libation a day, she advises.

6. Get your bone mineral density tested

Doctors can get a quick and painless “snapshot” of bone health using a simple x-ray test called dxa. This test measures bone mineral density and helps determine risks of osteoporosis and fracture. Dr. Sikon recommends testing for women within two years of menopause. Earlier tests are recommended for men and women with certain diseases and for those taking medications that increase risk, such as long-term steroid therapy.

7. Medication

Perimenopausal women may consider hormone therapy to increase waning estrogen levels, which are linked to bone loss. And women and men diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis can take various medications to prevent dangerous hip and spine fractures.

I am suffering from c3 c4 & c5 cervical bulge, does it cause chest pain and paliptaions. I checked heart, it shows normal. Then why paliptaions and chest pain.

Diploma in Family Medicine, Fellowship in Diabetology, Diploma in Diabetology, FCCP, MBBS
General Physician,
1 your heart is normal but palpitations & chest pain --- due to gerd. 2. Any hyperacidity state in the stomach will cause palpitation and chest pain. 3. C3 &c4 bulge will cause shoulder, neck & both hands pain.
