Hi Lokesh... There are various reasons for that out of which most common is sciatica...but still I need more details to confirm and prescribe a good homoeopathic medicine. Still you may try taking Colocynth 6C TDs for one day.

I have back pain since 3 months. I don't have any accident but it's paining almost every day. What should I do now?
Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Management: -Stretching or activities that place additional strain on the back are discouraged. -Sleeping with a pillow between the knees while lying on one side may increase comfort. -Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees would also relieves pain and no pillow under your head. -Some people seem to benefit from the use of ice or heat. Take care, do not use a heating pad on ‘high’ or place ice directly on the skin. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.

Back pain / Sciatica: If you have low back pain and sciatica you can undergo intermittent pelvic traction where in your half of your body weight will be added in the electronic traction so that that would help you to reduce the pain, along with Interferential therapy stimulations which would help you to get relieved from the radiating pain. Apply ice for the pain to get subsided immediately. If you cannot go immediately for the physiotherapy treatment. 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 chappals which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back. You have to take vitamin D RICH FOODS. Like milk, cheese,yogurt, brocoli,spinach. Youneed calcium consumption for increase the bone density.

She is suffering from back pain from last 1month and she is taking combiflam when the pain increases.
That's not good to take pain killers from time to time. She will need some treatment to cure what she is suffering from and not painkiller whenever she gets pain. Her main treatment would be to address her pathology which is not clear because of lack of details.

Neck Pain 101

Doctor Of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bachelor of Physical Therapy
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Neck Pain 101
Neck pain can be due to several reasons.

Some causes of chronic stiffness and pain in neck and upper back are:

Muscle strains
Sitting for long hours, poor posture, prolonged driving, reading while sleeping, improper sleeping habits can cause muscle tightness and strain.

Joint degeneration
Ageing can cause wearing out of neck joints, bulging discs and small bone spurs can grow on the side of the spine causing severe pain.

Nerve pinching
Discs or bone spurs can cause pinching of nerves which can cause tingling or numbness in hands and weakness. The pinched nerves can refer pain down the arm or upper back area.

Injuries
Car accidents causing sudden jerking of neck called whiplash injuries cause strain in the neck muscles.

Diseases
Some diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, meningitis, cancer etc can also cause neck pain.

For immediate relief of neck pain and tightness try these simple stretches: (check with your doctor if you can do these exercises if you have severe pain and or numbness)

*sit up straight and try to look behind you without moving your back. Hold 15 seconds and repeat 3 times both sides.

*draw you chin in as if trying to get double chin. Hold 5 seconds. Repeat 10 times.

*tilt your neck sideways till you feel a nice stretch. Hold 15 seconds. Repeat 3 times each side.
