I am 19 years old and there is  severe back ache in my body. What should I do?
Back ache can be due to several reasons. It can be muscular, related to disc degeneration or prolapse, joint irritation or nerve pinching. Most common is muscle pain due to tight and weak back and abdominal muscles. Keep a positive attitude, focus more on keeping good posture especially when sitting for long hours, use lumbar support. Take frequent breaks and stretch in between. Try changing sleeping habits. Stretching and strengthening exercises for low back and abdominal muscles will help reduce pain. Try hot or cold therapy as tolerated. If pain persists consult a physiotherapist specialized in back pain treatment. Good luck for quick recovery.

It is very important to understand the reason for pain, before treatment. Send me your digital xray, so that proper treatment regimen can be started. Just by applying volini etc, it will not be treated.

Get a cbc blood count and also rule out if there is a deficiency of calcium or vitamin d. If everything is normal and the pain persists then you can take homoeopathic medicines.
