I am a 30 yr old male and have backache for last 2 months what should I 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. If you have localized back pain with - no neurological symptoms like numbness, paresthesia, weakness in limbs etc - no associated symptoms like fever, swelling etc, my advice is: - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a physiotherapist and then at home. - avoid forward bending, lifting heavy weights etc - take an analgesic like diclofenac or something which suits your body for 5-7 days - take muscle relaxant for same time as analgesic to relieve muscle spasm - ice packs at the site of pain, muscle spasm - local analgesic spray can be used but no massage is required let me know in 2 weeks time how you are feeling and then we can suggest you some exercises for lower back muscle strengthening which you can do at home. I will actually ask you to get x ray of involved region of spine ( ap & lateral - flexion and extension views) blood tests: esr, crp and serum vitamin d levels and send reports across to me so that I can advise further in a better manner. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

A femur fracture usually takes around 20 - 24 weeks (5- 6 months) to completely unite. Depending on the fracture configuration your surgeon will instruct you about weight bearing.

I have a lot pain on my back side what can I do pls give me some treatments.

BHMS
Homeopath,
I have a lot pain on my back side what can I do pls give me some treatments.
Homeopathy is one of the most important and effective therapy for back pain. Homeopathy produces excellent results in backache treatment without producing any side effect and is extensively used in all over the world. Homeopathy is a nature system of healing and that is why it can heal whole symptoms of illnesses and it also cure the illness from its root. Back pain is one of the people?s most frequent complaints. Eight out of 10 people are suffering from back pain. It is a third leading cause for surgery. Surgery is considered to be the most common or ultimate solution to this problem. Unfortunately, significant number of people still doesn?t get a complete relief from this problem even after the complicated surgery. Do not get frustrated Homeopathy can change your life? Tips for backache: Heavy objects should be pushed rather than pulled. The weight of the objects should be taken in your bent legs and arms and not in your back. During an acute attack sleep with a pillow under the knees. Choose shoes that offer good support in the arch and have low, but not flat, heels. Prop up one foot on a box or low stool when you're standing for a long time. Use a chair that provides support for your back, or tuck a little pillow behind your lower back.
