Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening.

I m 28 years old male. My weight is 54 kgs. My height is 5.5 ft. I am having severe pain in hip joint since more than one year. And sometimes this pain even comes to my foot and then it is impossible to walk even a step. Kindly suggest the solution for the same.

If the pain is in the back of the hip the problem is likely to be a disc issue. If the pain is in the front of the hip, that is in the groin region it could be a of the hip joint. Get xrays done for the hip joint and lumbar spine and mail them to me in a private message.

I am 30 years old male, I have back pain within 6 months. Still is painful. So please help me what I need to do?
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. -Find a mattress with back support. A good mattress should provide support for the natural curves and alignment of the spine. Medium-firm mattresses usually provide more back pain relief than firm mattresses. -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 -Good posture plays a key role in your spine health, helping to prevent additional back and neck pain and even injuries to spinal structures. Try to be aware of your posture and make good posture part of your normal routine. -head up, shoulders back, rear tucked under -Stand and walk with correct posture -Sit with support -Lift and carry carefully -And finally, keep moving:-Maintaining a static position for too long—more than twenty or thirty minutes at a time—is hard on the back. Prolonged static posture can slowly deplete elasticity from the tissues. By simply moving—be it a change of position, a stretch, or a short walk—the tissue elasticity needed to protect your joints can be restored and the associated discomfort reduced. -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 relief. -Consult a Physiotherapist for detail assessment and management of your back pain. Best wishes.

Constipation is not diseases but prolongs use of laxative, faulty diet, lack of exercise, stress, is result of this. So before rush pillar to pillar for medicine it? s advisable to correct life style otherwise constipation is cause of many diseases non of patients free for laxative treatment a after they started with small does but its found that periodically doses n prescription increases. Is also noted that in this fast n competition life even patients does not bother for root cause treatment but rush for medicine, if one medicine not effected rush for others. According to naturopathy science in most of illness constipation is direct responsible pl note constipation condition produce toxins, which find there way in to blood stream and are carried to all part of body, so it? s necessary to clear bowel every day by natural way treatment: the purgative and laxative give you only n only temporary relief exercise / walking minimum 3 km. Well balance natural n simple diet & sleep use unrefined oil, lentils, fresh beans, vegetable, tomatoes, cabbage, cauliflower, sprout, pumpkin, peas, beet, carrot, fresh fruit, especially grapes, papayas, mangoes, gooseberries, guavas, orange. And dry fruit such as figs, raisins, apricots and dates, cow or soya milk take plain isabgol in early morning, no clod drink or water, avoid white n bakery products are some of way to rid on constipation. Since now days constipation is major issue & hence educate to patient I explain in deep without any further prescription from lybrate platform/patients in general. Between times start with liver tonic: hepatica (ramkrishna pharma)? to improve functional efficiency of liver and digestion. Available at homeopathic pharmacy regarding yr second query your. Doctor is best judge in this case best wishes.

Treatment and Care for Lower Back Pain

Treatment and Care for Lower Back Pain

Back pain is a common source of pain, which can be acute, subacute or chronic in nature. Back pain is classified along the segments of the spine and can be divided into neck pain, middle back pain, lower-back pain or tailbone pain.

Lower back pain is a type of back pain, which affects the lower back portion of the body. It may occur from arthritis or due to sudden jerking during movement. Lower-back pain may cause serious discomfort and aching and may disable a person from moving about. It should be treated and cared for properly.

Here are several treatments and care procedures for lower-back pain:

  1. Take some rest: Most people who get lower-back pain get obsessed with it and end up getting MRI scans, x-rays done and take injections without recognizing the intensity of the pain. It is advised not to rush into the matter. A simple way to cure the pain is by resting. 90% of lower back pains resolve by themselves in 6 weeks and so you must give your back a break instead of taking medical action and give your back some to heal.
  2. Pills: Sometimes, a lower back pain can suddenly become severe. In this case, you should intake anti-inflammatory pills such as ibuprofen or naproxen. These pills will help you ease the pain. However, you should not take them for more than ten days at a stretch as continuous pill consumption can cause side effects.
  3. Hot & cold compress: Apply a bag of frozen peas or an ice pack to the affected area in your lower back for 48 hours after the pain appears. Every session should be about of 20 minutes and you should take several sessions each day. After two days, repeat the same procedure using a heat pad. The cooling procedure shuts down your blood capillaries, reducing the flow of blood to the affected area. The swelling is then eased. The heating, on the other hand, loosens tight muscles and helps to increase blood circulation.
  4. Replace your mattress: People who sleep on firm mattresses and cushions on their beds are at a higher risk of experiencing lower-back pain. If you sleep on a medium-firm mattress, your chances of getting lower-back pain are less. In case your mattress is sagging or is very old, you should replace it.
  5. Acupuncture: When your lower-back pain is very severe, you can take acupuncture injections, which provide efficient pain relief. The injections change the way your nerves react and inflammation gets reduced.

Lower-back pain is likely to cause great discomfort and trouble. You will be unable to carry out your daily chores because of the pain. Therefore, proper treatment and care are required for lower-back pain.

Your problem will be taken care of with homeopathy. Just tell me when it pains most -when you walk, or sit, or bend? do you feel any tension in the back muscles? put your hand there and feel it. Is there anything that relieves your pain? other than pain killers. What about mornings -any pain then?
