Hunching over a desk is a leading reason why people end up with crippling back pain at some point in their lives, specially for those who has desk job. But a few simple changes in the way you work can make your pain go away. 1-Keep your head up; Focus on aligning your head and neck right above your shoulders; avoid straining forward. 2-Be choosy with your chair: Pick one that allows your lower back to rest against a lumbar support. Then tilt the back of the chair so it’s very slightly reclined. 3-Plant your feet: Keep them flat on the floor and shoulder-width apart to quiet tension in your knees and ankles. 4-Take breaks: Getting up at least once an hour— just do some shoulder rolls—reduces pressure on spinal disks and boosts circulation. If your back pain is severe please go to a Physiotherapist for detail assessment and management of your pain. Best wishes.

Hello lybrate user, - look at the cause for your pain as you mentioned long time it's better to go for investigation like x-ray back bone, though your age is not a suggestive of degenerative changes - it's all lifestyle dependent issues, better to adopt good lifestyle - maintain posture while sitting studying sleeping - if you are in any sports that also counts here (need to know) - apply ksheerabala taila with sahacharadi taila and do hot fomentation for 15 min for 10 days, no oral medications are required if there is no degenerative changes

I have a knee joint pain. I will go gym every 5 days in a week. Is this because of over weight lifting?

Ayurveda, Jaipur
I have a knee joint pain. I will go gym every 5 days in a week. Is this because of over weight lifting?
Get X-ray or MRI done to rule out any structural joint abnormalities. Meanwhile, gentle massage over knees with lukewarm herbal pain relieving oils daily for about 15-20 minutes and hot fomentation afterwards will greatly help in subsiding the pain. Ayurveda’s Panchakarma offers specialized treatment of JANU BASTI for knee pains - these procedures would give strength to your knee and reduce the pain and stiffness. Regular oiling the joint will improve the lubrication also. Use knee caps over the joints and avoid over exertion of the joint. Avoid sitting crossed legs. This will greatly help. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking. Please update with your valuable feedback after 15 days.\

Dear lybrate user, shin splint can be taken care with the application of sports (kinesio) taping/ rigid tape application, consult a sports physio for the same. Ice application at the affected area will help reducing pain (2-3/day). About bow legs- consult a orthotist to provide you lateral wedges, leg exercises to strengthen muscles is must. See a local physio for the same. Tc.

Hello it's a common these days. Seasonal change, sedentary lifestyles, lack of high fiber diet& nutrition, lack of physical workouts or walk, cycling, running, etc. So many factors that affect the body. Inactive & weak muscle tends to stiff early hence movement gets painful. You are advised to take hot formentation twice a day, avoid squatting &forward bending positions. Physio treatment or advice will be helpful.
