Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). Lie down on bed on your back without pillow. Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally.

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?

What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems?
It is actually not usual for the pain relief to be permanent, although this can happen. Patients often find that after some time the pain may return, in which case, after a period of several months, the procedure may be undertaken again. There is no one single response to this procedure, it depends on various factors including the specific nerve or nerves and any damage that they have experienced.

Quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Hi lybrate-user most of the time due to muscle exertion and low vitamin D, these kind of symptoms may arise. Try to do daily yoga exercise for back pain. Apply oil all over body with gentle massage and then do hot water bath. Hope this will work or else contact me in person.

Reason behind such kind of pain and weakness usually is rotator cuff tear. It can be diagnosed by clinical examination and mri. Treatment for this problem is appropriate exercise plan. No medicines are helpful. If exercises are not helpful, then surgery is last option.

I'm 59 years old having knee pains since so many years particularly while in sitting pose with cross legs on the ground during doing my path or sitting at Gurdawara Sahib. All my tests are negative with Uric Acid 8.3 While sitting sometimes both of my feet also sleep.

MPT - Orthopedic Physiotherapy
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chennai
It is not advisable to sit cross leg in arthritis of knee. Also. Because your thigh muscles are weak and sitting and getting up from floor puts lot of strain on the joint. The joint damage is more. Either you learn correct exercises from some orthopedic physiotherapist or else come to our private consultation.

There is no point in masking the pain we have to find the root cause and deal it than only the problem will get solved. You could have a radiculopaty or neuropathy you have to answer several questions before i come to a diagnosis gabapentin will have a masking effect on the nervous system it may make you drowsy. Consult privately to have detailed discussion and solution

LOW BACK PAIN AND HOMOEOPATHY

LOW BACK PAIN AND HOMOEOPATHY
Long term use of painkillers for low back pain is harmful

When it comes to treating low back pain, there is too much reliance on painkillers in the allopathic system of medicine. The effect of these is only temporary and lasts for a few hours. Once the effect wears off, you have to take another painkiller. Prolonged use of painkillers is known to cause detrimental effect on the kidneys.

Homeopathic treatment for low back pain

When it comes to the medicinal treatment, homeopathic medicines are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also very helpful in the chronic stage of back pain. It must be said here that homeopathy offers a much better alternative for the permanent cure for low back pain. The focus of the homeopath is not just to relieve the immediate pain but to also eliminate the root cause of the pain. That is precsely why the homeopath asks so many questions which may or may not seem related to your immediate problem. A common cause that is easily overlooked is the presence of stress in an individual. Mental stress can also contribute to low back pain and should be taken into account while taking the details of the patient. This is absolutely necessary if you want a lasting cure. In my practice, I have treated hundreds of cases of low back pain.
