I am getting back pain when am standing more time and when I was doing walking alsa getting some pain.
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket. And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back. You may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * surya namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * in diet vegetable protein of cereal, b complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. I would advise you to stop zyloric 300 and take homeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, with water after meals for just 15 days. You will surely feel a difference.

Hi good afternoon, I am 43 years woman sir please advice me, my right shoulder is very paining.
Requires detailed investigation and examination Presently investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d xray of the affected part. Anyway you may try sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head do hot fomentation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.

I have a problem in my back bone till 10 months specially when I sleep on mat so can suggest me what should I do.
Apply hot fomentation twice daily. Avoid bending in front. Postural correction- sit tall, walk tall. Extension exercises x 15 times x twice daily - lying on tummy, take left arm up for 3 seconds, then bring it down, right arm up for 3 seconds, bring down. Bring right leg up, hold for 3 seconds, bring it down. Then right leg up and hold for 3 seconds and bring it down. Repeat twice a day- 10 times. Bhujang asana -- lie flat on your stomach, keeping the palms out, bend the neck backward, take a deep breath and while holding it for 6 seconds, raise the chest up. Release breath and relax your body. Repeat the exercise 15 times twice daily. Core strengthening exercises- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Hi Thanks for your query and Welcome to Lybrate. I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. Can you kindly mention which joints are involved? Do you also feel stiffness when you get up in the morning? Have you noticed a progressive decrease in movements of the affected joints as well? I also need some basic investigations so that i can understand whether there is any underlying inflammatory process or not CBC, ESR, CRP, Serum Electrolytes and Serum Vitamin D levels. 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. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena Consultant Orthopaedics Fortis Hospital, New Delhi

60% of Back Pain in Humans Is Due to Disc

60% of Back Pain in Humans Is Due to Disc

THE INTERVERTEBRAL DISC

At its simplest, the spine gets most of its movement from each cotton reel sitting on its discal pillow and careening about in all directions.The back compartment has to control the movement.The intervertebral discs are the pillows and they are vital to the spine. Their high bursting pressure thrusts the vertebrae apart while at the same time gluing them together. Each has a vigorous incompressibility, like standing on a breadboard balanced on a beach ball. They give the spine aquivering up-thrusting romp which makes it whippy a light so it can tip around freely in the air without flopping over like a broken reed.Each disc consists of a squirting liquid centre called the nucleus and a tough meshed outer wall called the annulus fibrosis. The annulus in turn is made up of approximately twelve thin fibrous layers (called lamellae) which make up the wall. 

For maximum strength in bending, each successive lamella is made of fibers running in diagonally opposing directions,like the walls of a radial car tyre. This creates a tenacious multi-layered tubular lattice running around the rim of the disc which is bonded strongly to the vertebrae above and below. 

Thus the disc wall not only holds the vertebrae firmly together; it also keeps the nucleus under pressure.The lamellae at the back of the disc are even thinner and bunched closely together. 

This gives the inter space more freedom to pull apart so the spine can bend forward-its most frequent act-but it also means it is weaker, introducing a precarious trade-off between freedom to bend and the possibility that over-bending could break down the wall.Often the L5 discs are kidney-shaped, which exposes a longer flank and increases the holding power of the back wall. 

However , kidney-shaped discs have the disadvantage of rankling more inthe acute back corners when torsion strains are applied to the disc. You will see later how heavy duty lifting and twisting actions can make the wall perish at these points.

The nucleus of the disc has a unique molecular make-up which allows it to attract fluid to keep itself hydrated under pressure. (when healthy nuclear material is taken from a disc and set in a saucer of fluid it swells by 300 percent). This powerful attractive force from the nucleus maintains the high pressures within the disc so it is not squashed dry, as a normal sponge would be, by the powerful and ever-present forces bearing down upon it.When a disc is young,the nucleus is nearly 90 percent water but as it gets older it is less able to hold it. Even so, the strong suction on water creates very high intradiscal pressures. 

Apart from making the disc unsquashable, it forces the disc walls outwards, which has ingenious benefits for the spine. The strength of the walls fighting back against the outward force stiffens them and gives each link between the vertebrae invaluable tensile strength. 

This dynamically braces each link and keeps the spine taut all the way down its length.In the world of physics, a disc operating like this is called an ‘hydraulic sack’. Compression of a contained fluid results in forces being distributed outwards and evenly in all directions through that fluid. In the realm of backs, this is very important and the fluid content of any disc is very critical to its high performance.

Our vertical posture enhances the tensile strength of the spine. It adds to the pressurizing of the fluid sucks and converts the spine into a spring –loaded rod which can flip up straight again after bending. 

Without these tensile properties, the human back would not be the long slender thing it is. We would need a hugely bulky muscular apparatus to haul us up straight again once we had doubled over.But vertical posture does have its down side. It means the segments at the bottom of the stack get squashed by carrying so much weight. Compression down through the spine is the single most important cause of low back pain.
