I am 35 years old I have low back pain. What I can do?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist,
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned backache as your problem. If you have only localized backache with no other associated symptoms like radiating leg pain, numbness, paresthesias etc, and no systemic symptoms like fever, loss of appetite, loss of weight etc, my advice to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or even tab paracetamol which suits you - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied 3-4 times in a day - analgesic spray for local application like dynapar qps spray can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc if you do not improve in 2-3 weeks with this conservative management, we will need to evaluate you further in form of dynamic x rays to look for any instability as a cause for pain and some blood investigations to rule out any deficiencies etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr. Akshay kumar saxena consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi.

Pain& swelling in leg is a common after fracture rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Do hot fomentation keep a pillow under the legs at night &/when resting. Any way take take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Do ankle/foot & toe exercises it may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take.

I am a 29 years old male and have legpains for last 2 weeks. What should I do?
Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do stretching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you dont get relief see a physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

To loose weight: step 1-stop taking sugar & fat e. G. Ghee/fried stuff. Step 2 take a plat of salad before meals reduce no. Of chapatti gradually. You are most probably suffering from oa of knee. Knee surgery-total knee replacement (tkr) is quite safe & gives uniformly good results, in our hands. We have well equipped centers in delhi. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Surgery should be done only when patient is still active & will be able to take benefit of surgery. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. Kindly show me x rays before a final decision can be taken. You will be thoroughly investigated before surgery is under taken.

I MET AN ACCIDENT ON 29TH DEC 2014, GOT FRACTURES IN RIGHT LEG. X-RAY REPORT IS" FRACTURE LATERAL MALLEOLUS RIGHT (CLOSED) WITH FRACTURE 2ND & 3RD METATARSAL (CLOSED). INITIALLY, DOCTOR PUT A POP BACK SLAB FOR 15 DAYS AND HAD OPINED FOR CHANCE OF DISLOCATION IN ANKLE INJURY. BUT AFTER 15 DAYS, X RAY SHOWED " GOOD ALIGNMENT, NO DISPLACEMENT". THEN DOCTOR PUT A SYNTHETIC CAST REPLACING POP BACK SLAB AND WILL REVIEW ON 17TH FEB 2015. OCCASIONAL TOLERABLE PAIN IS PERSISTING ALTHOUGH NO PAIN KILLER IS BEING TAKEN AT PRESENT EXCEPT CALCIUM CAPSULE ONCE IN A DAY. I AM NOT PUTTING ANY WEIGHT ON RIGHT LEG AND USING TWO ELBOW CRUTCHES FOR WALKING. MY QUESTIONS ARE.... HOW LONG I HAVE TO PUT THE LEG INSIDE CAST ? IS THE PAIN NORMAL ? IS THERE FURTHER ANY CHANCE OF DISLOCATION OF AFFECTED AREAS UNDER CAST ? WHEN I CAN DRIVE AGAIN ? CAN I JOIN MY OFFICE DUTIES NOW SITTING ON CHAIR ? PLEASE OPINE. MY QUESTION IS..

Initial time for a fracture to get back is min of 4 weeks but your bone wouldnt be ready yet. It takes 6 months for the full recovery of the bone. If you put your wt before the proper "cementing" of the bone tissues it could lead to "bending" or "malalignment" of the part. Suggest you to take ample rest, followed by fresh vegetarian diet (improves healing faster) and just isometric exercises with slight weight bearing during walking. Yes you can work while sitting as long as you are not stressing your leg.

Tips to prevent joint degeneration:

Joint degeneration is progressive and signs and symptoms gradually worsen over time. Factors like age, gender, and sometimes heredity all play a role and, although there is no cure, there are ways to stave off more pain or compromised mobility later on in life:

1. Control your weight
Maintaining a healthy weight can go a long way toward protecting your joints. Obesity is a clear risk factor for developing some form of joint degeneration. Being overweight strains the joints, particularly those that bear a lot of weight, such as the knees and hips, causing the cartilage to wear away.

2. Stay Active
Although high intensity exercise, direct joint impact and injury from exercise can cause cartilage to break down faster, lack of any exercise may cause the muscles that run along the front of the thigh to remain weak, causing impact on the joints.

Exercise keeps joints healthy and is a key part of both joint degeneration prevention and symptom alleviation. Low impact options such as swimming, yoga, and walking push your heart rate up without putting further strain on joints. Strength training is also important as it increases muscle and bone health.

If fear of joint pain after exercise keeps you from exercising, try using heat and cold on painful joints, or take pain relievers, which may make it easier to exercise and stay active. The safest exercises are those that place the least body weight on the joints, such as bicycling, swimming, and other forms of water exercise.

3. Stand up
Are you guilty of slouching at your desk all day in front of a computer? Good posture alleviates stress on many important joints; it is therefore important to maintain the two natural curves of your spine, whether sitting or standing. The two natural curves are the concave curves between the base of your head and your shoulders, and the one from your upper back to the base of your spine.

4. Supplement with Daily Nutrients
Research indicates that glucosamine supplements help relieve pain and stiffness associated with joint degeneration, particularly when combined with appropriate lifestyle modifications, such as a balanced diet and exercise.

Glucosamine sulphate occurs naturally in the body, and seemingly plays a part in the repair and maintenance of joint cartilage. It is used by the body to produce a variety of other chemicals that are involved in building the connective tissue matrix (tendons, ligaments, cartilage) and the synovial fluid (thick fluid around the joints). Protection of this is critical to avoid suffering later in life.

Glucosamine sulphate has also been proven to reduce symptoms of joint degeneration, including pain (48%), compared to Ibuprofen (52%), which has significantly more side effects (35%) than glucosamine sulphate (6%), as reported in one clinical trial.

Eating fruits such as berries, apples, plums, and peaches that contain antioxidants may also help decrease inflammation.

5. Relax
Stress in general is bad for the body. It can lead to lack of sleep and depression, both of which take a toll on your body. Relaxation techniques such as meditation and yoga can help reduce levels of stress and improve your overall health.
So Remain Relaxed,Stress free.

You might have knee injury and ACL tear. It's important to get diagnosis confirmed by clinical examination and MRI if needed. Only after diagnosis is confirmed, treatment can be started. I'm Dr Prashant Parate. Shoulder and knee specialist.

She may be suffering due to calcification of her vertebra where vertebral column becomes stiff. Old age is one of the causes for this. It is advisable not to use excessive pain killers as they may damage the kidneys. Take her to an orthopedic surgeon and thoroughly investigated.

I have a condition where my left side of the hip makes a clicking noise when I engage in leg raises exercise. There is a soft snapping noise when I bring my legs down. This only occurs on the left leg/hip. I read up on this and apparently it is caused by the tendon moving over the bone. What would you recommend? Thank you for your advice in advance.

You are absolutely right this syndrome is known as snapping syndrome and can be due to tightness of tendon called pyriformis gradual stretching exercises related to this muscle with the help of physiotherapist should do the trick unfortunately other than physiotherapy, surgery is the only other line of management.
