I had a first episode of bells palsy 6 years back and a second one 2 years back. Am completely unaware what causes it. Although, i suppose it has to do with strain on my cervical bones; my doctor said its due to herpez simplex virus. I need to figure it out in order to avoid future incidence. Pls help!

Hi, the basic thing you have to know to avoid such infections is that your immunity is low. You have to work on your immunity part with good diet, food supplements and regular exercise or workout. This will lead you to get rid off these kind of infections. Take care and have a nice day.

How can a Physiotherapists helps you in backpain?
A physiotherapist is a special health care provider who has specific knowledge of body structures related to spine, i.E. Muscles, ligaments, bony vertebrae, discs, alignment of spine, force distribution etc. Physiotherapist is specially trained to treat disorders of musculoskeletal conditions like  back.He uses many modern approach to treat backpain and help you to avoid  any future back problems.

What are the reasons causing backpain?
There are many reasons behind an episode of back pain.Sometimes you have an injury or a pull and hurt your back.As time passes by structures will heal by itself and you get relief from pain.
But there are some complicated reasons like poor posture, obese, poor habits in working, faulty bending and of course age is a main cause of back pain in  aging discs of our spine.

Some people experience only pain but have sensory problems also, so what does this mean?

In young healthy persons our spine is strong and capable of withstand any disturbing force which causes back, unless person has an injury or a specific cause to it.As the injury heals pain automatically goes down.
But in person with tasks like long sitting, poor postural habits, tearing of disc, spine loses its ability to withstand these forces and so loses its anatomical configuration slightly in the form of body adjustments like bony beaks, which sometimes press passing nerves from spine so we have sensory feelings of pain.

I have backpain, should I go for MRI or CT scan?
MRI or CT scans are special investigation prescribed by healthcare provider to make a strong diagnosis.These are not usually advised in every backpain.
An X ray can be advised to check for bones and disc of spine.

Is Heating pad  are enough to cure backpain?
Heating pads are advised to decrease pain and spasm. They are usually advised but for decreasing pain and uncomfortable which is the first reason of visit to a physiotherapist.
Specialized manual therapy and stabilization exercise, kinesthetic awareness etc  are important in back rehabilitation program .

Usually eating food should not lead to back pain, if you are not maintaining correct posture while eating- like sitting on floor etc, can lead to back pain so avoid sitting on floor, sitting crosslegged do not bend forward to lift any heavy weight do regular exercises for general well being and back strengthening exercises take vitamin d supplement.

Lybrate-user, if your wisdom tooth is incorrectly placed or stuck halfway and has not erupted fully because of improper positioning, you will need to get the wisdom tooth extracted to get rid of the problem. If it is incorrectly placed, it is better to get it removed at a early age.

Make sure that you do stretching exercises before, during and after taking a walk as a part of the warming up and cooling down process. They will keep the muscles flexible and relaxed, the joints mobile and relieving stress and tension.

Weakness could be the common reason. Moreover hair fall may be caused by allergy, nourishment gaps, hair care gaps, hereditary. Back pain could also be due to vertebral problem, vata vitiation. Eat max green leaves, salads, proteins. Take vatnashak and keshya medicines.

it is a sharp injury to median nerve. Injury is an act that causes someone or something to receive physical damage, which can be classified on various bases. Classification : By cause : -Traumatic injury, a body wound or shock produced by sudden physical injury, as from violence or accident. – Other injuries from external physical causes, such as radiation injury, burn injury or frostbite. – Injury from infection. – Injury from toxin or pharmaceutical drug. – Metabolic injury. – Complications of diabetes due to hyperglycemia. – Complications of lysosomal and glycogen storage diseases. – Injury due to autoimmunity. – Injury due to cancer. – Injury secondary to any other disease. By location : -Wound, an injury in which skin is torn -Open wound, cut or punctured -Closed wound where blunt force trauma causes a contusion -Brain injury -Spinal cord injury -Nerve injury -Soft tissue injury -Cell damage, including direct DNA damage As you see, injury is a very broad word and covers various types of derangements. In this article Ii will restrict myself only to traumatic injuries excluding the causes like radiation, burn, frostbite etc. which I will cover in my next articles. Homeopathic Treatment : In homeopathy, selection of remedy depends on the cause, location and specific symptoms of the patient with injury. It should always be kept in mind that homeopathic remedies are highly curative when administrated in high/medium potencies in single doses. If there is a gross pathological derangement already present and the patient is too weak, then lower potencies should be considered for use in split dose. yyou knoe it well, that your treatment needs special concern. try homoepathy....
