Back Pain - Tablets Are Not First Choice

Back pain nagging again?

Anti-inflammatory drugs may help a little, here's what you can do instead
Back pain can really get disabling. The nagging pain can not only put you on stress but also meddles with your daily routine. According to a recent study published in'annals of the rheumatic diseases, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) may help a little in getting rid of back pain. On the other hand, excessive usage of such drugs may cause bleeding and ulcers in stomach among other gastro-intestinal problems.

Experts from the george institute for global health, australia conducted experiments to test the effectiveness of existing medicines that used commonly used for treating back pain. The team examined more than 6000 people from 35 trials.
 It was found that only one in every 6 patients received any considerable benefit from consuming such medications.
The team also brought to light the fact that, in most cases, the effects of nsaids are short-lived and often harm people's health. Taking these facts into account, the experts urged to focus more of preventive measures over treatment.

Back pain can be caused by a host of different reasons. From an old injury resurfacing, to excessive sitting, sedentary lifestyle and incorrect posture - the culprit can be any or a cocktail of all. Prevention would certainly involve taking short breaks at work, investing in physical exercise, practicing flexibility enhancing techniques like yoga, assuming a correct sitting posture and eating a balanced diet. A series of backward bending yoga postures can help relieve back pain. Some of these would include 
 
Bhujangasana (cobra pose)

Balasana (child's pose)

Hi, Take tab. Rhukot 2 tabs 3 times a day and 2 tsf of Maharasnadi Kashaya mixed with equal quantity of water, 3 times a day after food. Apply Dashaanga lepa on the affected joints at night and wash it the next day morning. Rhukot gel may be applied for pain during the day time. Do not give hot water fomentation. Avoid potatoes, sweet potatoes, sweet pumpkin, peas, channa, etc food which aggrevates the pain.

I have an arm surgery for nailing and plating on 19th Feb. Bone is still not joining. I am taking fracture as medicine. What I can do to avoid bone grafting?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS

2.5 months is too early for a fracture to heal. It should show some healing in 3-4 months. If not then need to plan for bone grafting. Take tab setfrac plus once daily for faster bone heaing.

This depends on the state of your problem, usually in 15 days time your pain should have been better if the remedy is suited to your case. If its better then you should not take this further. If your pain is similar and Mag Phos offered no relief then also there is no reason to take this medicine any longer. Your case need a re evaluation and remedy or potency might be changed or both.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Well diet alone may not sole his problems although recommendation will be for diabetic diet with high calcium containing diet, fresh fruits and vegetables although you can get a diet chart planned for him from a good nutritionist. Also my advice will be to get some blood tests done for him empty stomach like: cbc, esr, crp, serum electrolytes, serum vitamin d levels and send these reports across to me so that I can advise for adequate supplementation as well. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hello, I advice you to get consulted by a Spinal Physiotherapist in order to get rid of 3months old pain. Most of the back pain at younger age are Mechanical and Idiopathic. What happens usually is the Pelvis complex goes for Positional Fault or wrong biomechanics which a skilled Spinal Manual Therapist or a Spinal Surgeon only can diagnose. Once evaluated, it will be easy to treat and vet benefitted. If it fails, seek advice from a Spinal Surgeon.

Go for proper diagnosis first, it should be ruled out whether it is just an muscles sprain or some spine or bone related changes present. Apart from this you can go for physiotherapy sessions for pain relief and with this you need to do some stretching and strengthening exercises, that you can ask to your therapist.

Its nothing because of your lower back spinal nerves are under some pressure. You just stretch your back muscles so that that compression may relieved. In between just keep icing therapy for your back.

Dear lybrate-user, it is happening repeatedly. It may be alcohol withdrawal or alcohol intoxication or other conditions related to alcohol. Whatever it is you need to treat your alcohol use. Why don; t you go to a psychiatrist or deaddiction centre to quit alcohol or to find out whether you will become a person who is dependent on alcohol. For the time being take a pain killer. But it is important to consult soon.
