Dear doctor, I am 36 year old professional and have been experincing some niggle in the left hip joint for the last 6-7 months, during standing the pain aggrevates, even sitting recently for long hours at work is getting uncomfortable. What should I do?

Orthopedist, Delhi
Hello, this is Dr. Mathur from new delhi. Welcome to lybrate. If you are having discomfort in the hip for 6-7 months, I think an x ray of the pelvis with both hips ap view and left hip lateral view will be the first step to finding the cause of pain. Also get the following blood tests fasting- vitamin d and uric acid. Revert back with the investigations.

Hello, please investigate properly and send the x-ray and other investigation report to rule out whether it is arthritis or anything else. This is may be due to overweight or deficiency of vitamin d3 and calcium or due to poor posture. Till then follow these advises - 1. Take calcium supplements and sun bath daily to prevent further damage to your joints. 2. Avoid heavy lifting. 3. Avoid squatting and weight bearing activities. 4. Use western toilet. 5. Wear shock absorbing, good quality of shoes while walking. 6. Keep roll of a towel under your knees while sleeping. 7. Perform some gentle exercises and stretching of your all joints before getting out of your bed. 8. Walk straight with shoulder protracted. 9. Perform deep breathing exercises or yoga for proper functioning of lungs. I will explain you stiffness and pain reducing techniques in the next session. Wish you a happy and pain free life thanks.

Hi i'm 28 years old and I have a back pain from last 3-4 months what should I do ?

Doctor Of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bachelor of Physical Therapy
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
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. Try hot or cold therapy as tolerated. Wish you speedy recovery.

I am 22 years old I cause back pain in serve days I get some pain relif spray and the pain kellae4 tablet but the pain was not relif what medicine I will take.

Physiotherapist, Surat
I understand your pain. Rather than taking medicines I would recommend you to go for some exercises and back care home which will give you relief. If still pain does not persists than go for xray or ct to rule out the reason for pain. In case of back pain please make sure for the following things: 1. Dnt bend forward, if required first bend you knees and then move forward. 2. Dnt lean while sitting. 3 dnt over stress your muscles. 4. Take healthy and nutritious diet, avoid junk food at least for some days like food that include citrus acid, soya sauce etc. 5. While sleeping try to sleep on sidelying position with pillow under your knee (one 90 degree bend on other knee) 6. Avoid liffting heavy object. 7. Perform daily exercises. Perform some basic treatment that can be done at home easily: 1. Take hot/cold fermentation whichever suit you for 15 min thrice a day. 2. As soon as your fermentation ends your muscles will be relax and you will feel more comfortable, then take a rest of 4-5 min and start doing some exercises like straight leg raising, prone on elbow, knee extension, hams and quads stretching, bridging, prone leg raising (hip extension) all these exercises can be done 10 repititions and then you can progress to 15-25 with a set of 2-3. Do not over strain your muscle, exercise at the level of range you start paining. I am sure you will get a relief and no medicine would be required. Get well soon. Regards.

12 Tips to Manage Back Pain

Back pain is a common health problem that affects most people at some point in their life. It may be triggered by bad posture while sitting or standing, bending awkwardly, or lifting heavy objects incorrectly

Common causes:

Muscle spasms and strains

Disc problems: a sudden back movement may cause the disc to bulge or rupture completely. This causes pain in the back or along the course of the nerve that has been pressed-usually the buttocks, leg or foot.

Osteoarthritis and osteoporosis are ( Above> 50 years)

Ankylosing spondylitis: this is a type of arthritis that affects the spine. It occurs mostly in young men. It causes back pain, stiff back and difficulty in bending

Tips to manage Back pain

When you have back pain, use ice or heat. Ice is best in the first 24 to 48 hours after an injury because it reduces inflammation. After 48 hours, you can switch to heat .
Whether you use heat or ice — take it off after about 20 minutes to give your skin a rest.
It is important to keep moving as much as possible. You may require bed rest when the pain in acute, but prolonged bed rest is not helpful.
Exercise regularly to strengthen the abdominal muscles that work with back muscles to stabilize the spine
Always consult a professional trainer before starting a workout regimen
Improve your posture. Keep your spine straight while sitting and standing. Avoid slouching
If you have a desk job, get up every 20 minutes or so and stretch backwards
Design your workplace so you don’t have to hunch forward to see your computer monitor or reach way out for your mouse
Use a desk chair that supports your lower back and allows you to keep your feet planted firmly on the floor
When driving, adjust your car set and steering wheel to a correct height and distance
Be especially careful of your posture when lifting heavy objects. Never bend over from the waist Instead, bend and straighten from the knees

If your pain does not improve, consult a doctor. Your doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory medicines for a few days till the acute stage is over

I am 54 year old having back pain due to prolapse disc L5-S1. Pain is radiating towards left leg. There is pain in the left leg and numbness. Injury occurred 20 years back. Pain has aggravated in recent past.

Physiotherapist, Bhopal
Get an mri and consult an orthopaedician or physical therapist for revaluation, your management would be planned according to the level of disc protrusion if it has reoccurred. All the best.

My teeth are yellowish in colour after changing so many pastes also I have not found any cure. Please guide me. Another query is that I am having a back pain problem while traveling and sleeping what is the best cure so that there will be no more pain. My legs also get paining at night several times. It might be due to insufficiency of calcium in my body.
