Lower back pain is a common cause for visits to the doctor. Causes of lower back pain include muscle pulls and spasms, nerve irritation, and spinal abnormalities such as a slipped disk or spinal stenosis. Treatment options for lower back pain range widely according to the cause of the condition. Rest your back. Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees helps keep your back in a neutral position. You might also find some relief by lying on the floor with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle and propped on a chair. However, don’t rest for too long — many cases of lower back pain resolve themselves within a couple of days. Treat lower back pain with a hot or cold compress, this can reduce pain and increase your mobility. Over-the-counter pain killers are a non-invasive treatment option for back pain. Medications such as ibuprofen is most effective in reducing pain and swelling associated with muscle-related lower back pain. Meet an orthopedic surgeon (bone doctor) if your back does not feel better after a few days of rest, hot or cold compresses, and over-the-counter pain killers. If your back pain doesn’t respond to conventional treatments, you may need to consider alternative options. Traction uses a system of weights to align your spine and possibly help slipped disks move back into place. Ultrasound involves massaging the soft tissues around your back injury with sound waves that warm the muscles, causing them to relax and heal more quickly. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is electronic stimulation of the nerves through electrodes placed on your skin. Ask a orthopedic doctor about these treatment methods. Hope this information helps. Take care.

First you should take an x-ray and see the internal structures then you can start doing some strengthening exercises which will help you to have more strength in the joint. And ice therapy will definitely help you to get more healing.

Symptoms And Treatment Of Osteoporosis And Gout

Symptoms And Treatment Of Osteoporosis And Gout

Are you aware of the health conditions - osteoporosis and gout? Both these conditions are associated with your joints and bones. They are both difficult diseases and require proper treatment.

Osteoporosis concerns the bones, in which the bones are at a risk of breaking due to decreased strength. This condition is quite common in elderly people with brittle bones.

Gout is a very painful form of arthritis and is featured by joint inflammation. The pain and inflammation occur due to the deposition of urate crystals in a joint when uric acid is present in excess in the body.

Osteoarthritis-

Symptoms:

The symptoms of osteoporosis include pain and stiffening in a joint and swelling in the joints, especially in the thumbs, neck, knees and lower back. A patient’s skin may turn red and he may feel unusually hot.

Treatment:

Combined treatments are prescribed for osteoarthritis. Treatment aims at improving joint function, maintaining a healthy body weight, reducing pain and achieving a healthy lifestyle. Regular exercise is important for reducing pain, increasing flexibility and for improving blood circulation. You should take measures to lose weight in order to reduce the stress on the joints which bear weight. You should take sufficient amount of rest along with proper sleep. There are other alternative therapies for osteoarthritis treatment without the use of prescribed drugs. Hot and cold therapy is ideal for easing pain and increasing blood flow. Some forms of massage therapies are also ideal for giving relief to osteoarthritis pain.

Gout-

Symptoms:

There are several symptoms of gout, which occur all of a sudden. Intense joint pain is indicated and the large joint of the big toe is especially affected. It may also occur in the feet, ankles, knees, hands and wrists. The joint discomfort may last even after the intense pain subsides. The affected joints get swollen, arm, red and tender.

Treatment:

The treatment for gout aims at relieving severe pain and preventing future gout attacks along with long-term complications. The treatment methods include medicines and several home cure methods. Specific treatment is also prescribed based on the intensity of attacks and for preventing complications. As a part of long-term prevention methods, you should keep on taking your prescribed medicines, manage your body weight, exercise regularly and limit your intake of meat, seafood and alcohol.

Osteoarthritis and gout require timely diagnosis and treatment if you want to prevent them from worsening. You should consult a doctor on experiencing any symptom of gout and osteoarthritis.

Lybrate-user do not worry. You must not sit at a place for long time. After 1/2 hour you must go for walk or you may do leg exercise on the chair also. You can also go for x-ray of lumber and inform with a report.

Mri report must be interpreted in relation to the clinical condition of the patient. Stiffness & pain in nck/back & other joints is quite a common condition. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos caldikind plus (mankind) 1 tab odx10days make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

You are very young and you weight is also proper. So I think you should consult an orthopaedician for your knee pain who will advice you an x ray and an mri and advice you accordingly.
