I am 38 years old and I have backache when I wake up in morning. Please advise.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist,
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.

I have 28 year old last 2 month before I have an accident then I have back pain after accident.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned that your back pain started after you sustained a lower back injury. I would also like to ask you if it is associated with any leg pain or any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias (electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. Please also tell me about any associated symptoms like fever, weight loss etc. What medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. It will be beneficial if you can send me your x rays so that I can see and advise accordingly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

I understand your pain. Rather than taking medicines I would recommend you to go for some exercises and back care home which will give you relief. If still pain does not persists than go for xray or ct to rule out the reason for pain. In case of back pain please make sure for the following things: 1. Dnt bend forward, if required first bend you knees and then move forward. 2. Dnt lean while sitting. 3 dnt over stress your muscles. 4. Take healthy and nutritious diet, avoid junk food at least for some days like food that include citrus acid, soya sauce etc. 5. While sleeping try to sleep on sidelying position with pillow under your knee (one 90 degree bend on other knee) 6. Avoid liffting heavy object. 7. Perform daily exercises. Perform some basic treatment that can be done at home easily: 1. Take hot/cold fermentation whichever suit you for 15 min thrice a day. 2. As soon as your fermentation ends your muscles will be relax and you will feel more comfortable, then take a rest of 4-5 min and start doing some exercises like straight leg raising, prone on elbow, knee extension, hams and quads stretching, bridging, prone leg raising (hip extension) all these exercises can be done 10 repititions and then you can progress to 15-25 with a set of 2-3. Do not over strain your muscle, exercise at the level of range you start paining. I am sure you will get a relief and no medicine would be required. Get well soon. Regards.

Use soft medium sized pillow while sleeping. Perform neck exercises for 10 mins in the morning and evening regularly.

Knee advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

You may be suffering from Sciatic pain . Because of your lower back problem all other problems have come. Sciatic is the longest nerve starting from lower back moving along with your thigh knee up to the ankle. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. In case it continues consult a Acupuncture/Acupressure Dr. In your place

If you have localized neck pain with no other symptoms like radiating upper limb pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your neck while working and sleeping and especially observing precautions of neck ergonomics - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - 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 if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. We will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like dynamic x rays of neck and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
