Repeadetaly backache is going on with my wife after child born around 10 Years ago.

Fellowship in Neurological Rehabilitation, BPTh/BPT

Repeadetaly backache is going on with my wife after child born around 10 Years ago.
Hi, as pain have started after child birth (presuming its to be normal delivery. You should know that during pregnancy, the body releases a hormone that relaxes the joints and ligaments in pelvis to make it easier delivery. Unfortunately, this instability also increases the risk of inflammation and joint misalignment, which can lead to lower back pain with time. The physical stress of parenting or caring for infants and young children can impart tremendous biomechanical strain. Daily repetitive stress from tasks that require lifting the child or infant can compromises spinal integrity. Repetitive injury to the disc, joints, muscles and ligaments of the spine can result from chronic lifting, twisting and poor posture. I suggest she should get precautionary mri done or other investigation to check for any other injury (like disc prolapse or infection or v. Prolapse). Check with gynecologist, orthopedician or physiotherapist. Advice: 1) to relieve pain suggest hot pack, ift and swd for 10 days. 2) specific pelvic floor and back core muscle exercise regime after complete assessment. Pointers: 1) she should avoid lifting heavy object 2) be posture aware, while doing daily routine work. 3) avoid staying in position for long time like avoid continuous standing or sitting. Thanks.

As arthritis is very common that you get generally bilaterally. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. You can take Ultrasonic therapy in one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics which would help to heal the damaged cartilages along with shortwave diathermy which would help to improve the blood circulation.

Physiotherapist,
I am 23 yrs old and I am having back pain since last 2 days what can I do?
Back ache can be due to several reasons. It can be muscular, related to disc degeneration or prolapse, joint irritation or nerve pinching. Most common is muscle pain due to tight and weak back and abdominal muscles. Keep a positive attitude, focus more on keeping good posture especially when sitting for long hours, use lumbar support. Take frequent breaks and stretch in between. Try changing sleeping habits. Try hot or cold therapy as tolerated. Wish you speedy recovery.

You seem to be a bike rider. Neck pain can occur in such situations due to strain on neck muscles. Such pain can be relieved by simple measures at home. 1) Take rest for 1-2 days. 2) Simple analgesics like paracetamol or Ibuprofen to relieve pain 3) Application of ice pack helps in new onset neck pain in first 24 hrs. Later on application of warm pack will help. 4) Massage locally with analgesic cream 5) Perform neck stretches and muscle strengthening exercises once pain is decreased. 6) Follow good posture habits to avoid further increase in neck pain. Consult your doctor immediately in following cases: 1) Neck pain is persistent and progressive 2) Neck pain following trauma or accident 3) Neck pain associated with tingling or numbness in hands or shoulder.

Sciatica Pain - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy)
Physiotherapist, Indore
Sciatica Pain - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Sciatica refers to back pain caused by a problem with the sciatic nerve. This is a large nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. When something injures or puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, it can cause pain in the lower back that spreads to the hip, buttocks, and leg. Up to 90% of people recover from sciatica without surgery.
Sciatica is not a medical diagnosis in and of itself—it is a symptom of an underlying medical condition, such as a lumbar herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, or spinal stenosis.
Lumbar herniated disc
A herniated disc occurs when the soft inner core of the disc (nucleus pulposus) leaks out, or herniates, through the fibrous outer core (annulus) and irritates the contiguous nerve root.
A herniated disc is sometimes referred to as a slipped disc, ruptured disc, bulging disc, protruding disc, or a pinched nerve. Sciatica is the most common symptom of a lumbar herniated disc.
Degenerative disc disease
While disc degeneration is a natural process that occurs with aging, for some people one or more degenerated discs in the lower back can also irritate a nerve root and cause sciatica.
Degenerative disc disease is diagnosed when a weakened disc results in excessive micro-motion at that spinal level, and inflammatory proteins from inside the disc become exposed & irritate the nerve root(s) in the area.
Lumbar spinal stenosis
This condition commonly causes sciatica due to a narrowing of the spinal canal. Lumbar spinal stenosis is related to natural aging in the spine and is relatively common in adults over age 60.
The condition typically results from a combination of one or more of the following: enlarged facet joints, overgrowth of soft tissue, and a bulging disc placing pressure on the nerve roots, causing sciatica pain.
What are the symptoms of Sciatica?
Usually, sciatica only affects one side of the lower body and the pain often radiates from the lower back all the way through the back of the thigh & down through the leg.
Some combinations of the following symptoms are most common:
Lower back pain, if experienced at all, is not as severe as leg pain
Constant pain in only one side of the buttock or leg, but rarely both the right and left sides
Pain that originates in the low back or buttock and continues along the path of the sciatic nerve - down the back of the thigh and into the lower leg & foot
Pain that feels better when patients lie down or are walking, but worsens when standing or sitting
Pain that is typically described as sharp or searing, rather than dull
Some experience a "pins-and-needles" sensation, numbness or weakness, or a prickling sensation down the leg
Weakness or numbness when moving the leg or foot
Severe or shooting pain in one leg that may make it difficult to stand up or walk
Depending on where the sciatic nerve is affected, the pain and other symptoms may also include foot pain or pain in the toes.
What is the treatment for Sciatica Pain?
The goals of non-surgical sciatica treatments are to relieve pain and any neurological symptoms caused by a compressed nerve root. There is a broad range of options available for sciatica treatment. One or some combination of the treatments below are usually recommended in conjunction with specific exercises.
Heat/Ice
For acute sciatic pain, heat and/or ice packs are readily available and can help alleviate the leg pain, especially in the initial phase. Usually ice or heat is applied for approximately 20 minutes, and repeated every two hours. Most people use ice first, but some people find more relief with heat. The two may be alternated. It is best to apply ice with a cloth or towel placed between the ice and skin to avoid an ice burn.
Pain Medications
Over-the-counter or prescription medications are often effective in reducing or relieving sciatica pain. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or oral steroids can reduce the inflammation that is usually part of the cause of the pain.
Alternative sciatica treatment
In addition to standard medical treatments, several alternative treatments have also been shown to provide effective sciatica pain relief for many patients. Three of the more common forms of alternative care for sciatica include chiropractic manipulation, acupuncture, and massage therapy.
Chiropractic/manual manipulation
Spinal adjustments and manual manipulation performed by appropriately trained health professionals, such as chiropractors and osteopathic physicians, are focused on providing better spinal column alignment, which in turn should help to address a number of underlying conditions that can cause sciatic nerve pain.
Acupuncture
The practice is centered on the philosophy of achieving or maintaining well being through the open flow of energy via specific pathways in the body. Hair-thin needles (that are usually not felt) are inserted into the skin near the area of pain.
Massage therapy
Certain forms of massage therapy have been shown to have a number of benefits for back pain, including increased blood circulation, muscle relaxation, and release of endorphins (the body’s natural pain relievers).
Sciatica Surgery
Typically, it is reasonable to consider surgery for sciatica in the following situations:
Severe leg pain that has persisted for 4 to 6 weeks or more
Pain relief that is not achieved after a concerted effort at non-surgical sciatica treatments, such as one or a combination of oral steroids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, manual manipulation, injections, and/or physical therapy
The condition is limiting the patient’s ability to participate in everyday activities
Urgent surgery is typically only necessary if the patient experiences progressive weakness in the legs, or sudden loss of bowel or bladder control, which may be caused by cauda equina syndrome.
Depending on the cause and the duration of the sciatica pain, one of two surgical procedures will typically be considered:
A microdiscectomy (or small open surgery)
A lumbar laminectomy (an open decompression)

Lower Back Pain - Can Physiotherapy Manage it?

Physiotherapist, Ahmedabad
Lower Back Pain - Can Physiotherapy Manage it?

Low back pain is one of the most common medical problems and it 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 and for long Physiotherapy has proven to provide good relief. 
  • The aim of physiotherapy is to 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.
  • Nerves, muscles, bones, and disks of the lower back are supported by the abdominal and back muscles. The intent of the exercise is to strengthen these two sets of muscles so that the spine/lower 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 as a sole mean of treatment, physiotherapy is also 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 physiotherapy may not be beneficial if exercises are not done properly or if the patients do not adhere to the scheduled prescription. The long term success depends not just on getting the relief, but on following the maintenance exercises as 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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a physiotherapist.
