Hello, Dr. I am a 21 year old male. I have back pain from 7-8 months in my back bone. I have done a x-ray and the Dr. said it is normal. And the pain didn't reduce its coming back after 2 or 3 days again. I have tried to jogging and swimming but still no effects. I have try ashwagandha power if I continue eating that then pain will be less if I stop it the pain is back. From past 2 days the pain is very much. I am unable to pick a coin from the floor because I can't bend down. It is effecting my lifestyle very much. Kindly suggest what to do and what specialist Dr. should I visit.

Backache in young age is commonly due to 1. Muscle strain resulting from improper posture. 2. Intervertebral disc bulge or prolapse. X ray cannot diagnose soft tissue or muscle causes of back pain. MRI of lumbo sacral spine is needed for diagnosis. Follow these to get relief. 1. Take anti inflammatory drugs like Diclofenac or Etoricoxub with muscle relaxant combination round the clock for 7 days 2.Take rest for 3 days but avoid total bed rest. 4. Do back strengthening and stretching exercises daily once pain is relieved. 7.Apply analgesic cream over back followed by warm fomentation. 6. Keep pillow behind your knees at bedtime. While sleeping on sides keep pillow between knees. 7. Do not bend and lift weights. To lift anything from floor bend your knees and pick up. 8. If back pain is accompanied with radiating leg pain or tingling, numbness or weakness, consult immediately. Many cases of back pain do not repond to conservative treatment and require intervention like sacro iliac joint injection or epidural steroid injections to relieve pain. Treatment decision can be done only after detailed evaluation. Consult an interventional pain specialist in your city. For further queries consult again.

Is There No Cure for Osteoarthritis?

Is There No Cure for Osteoarthritis?

WHAT CAUSES OSTEOARHRITIS DIAGNOSED?

Sometimes osteoarthritis is detected on X-rays taken for other purposes. In this case, people may not feel any aches or pains but may be told by their physician that they have osteoarthritis. Often if a person complains of pains in joints, the PHYSIO will order X-rays because damage to a joint may be seen that way. However, X-rays are only part of the procedure your physician will follow to diagnose osteoarthritis. The history of your symptoms and the findings of the complete physical examination also will be valuable factors in the diagnosis. Your explanation of how you feel will be very important. For example, persons with osteoarthritis usually do not have a feeling of being ill, do not experience severe weight loss, and do not have a poor appetite or fever. Also, the pain in the involved joint is usually maximal with activity (walking, etc.) and decreased by rest in patients with osteoarthritis. 

HOW IS OSTEOARTHRITIS TREATED?

There is no cure for osteoarthritis. The goal of therapy is to control the disease and possibly slow its progress by keeping the affected joints mobile, preventing further disability, and relieving pain. In some cases drugs, special exercises, rest, and heat are effective.If you have osteoarthritis, depending on your symptoms, your physician may suggest avoiding physical activities that strain your sore joints. 

You may be advised to avoid occupational and recreational use of the affected joints. If weight-bearing joints are involved, you may be told to avoid weight-bearing activities such as climbing stairs or prolonged standing.In other cases, orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation therapy are helpful. 

Sometimes drugs are injected directly into the joint affected by osteoarthritis. Some people obtain temporary relief from pain and disability in this way. If you are overweight, your physician will probably suggest a weight-reducing diet. Reducing weight will help reduce the strain on your joints, particularly if your osteoarthritis is in the hip or knees.

In some cases, physicians recommend traction, which involves stretching the upper part of the spine in the area of the neck, as a treatment for spinal osteoarthritis. In other cases physicians recommend using a neck collar or a heavy towel wrapped around the neck to support the weight of the head, thereby allowing the painful muscles to relax. These techniques provide relief but do not influence the progress of the disease.

Respected sir. Please suggested me some physiotherapy for neuropathy problem in  feet pain thanks.
You shall do contrast bath to relieve this pain. Contrast bath is nothing but keeping in one tub hot water (bearable heat) and in another tub cold water Ask your father to apply ice in the painful area which would definitely help to greater extent. If still the pain persists then it is better to keep TENS stimulation at one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics.
