Having right side pain on the area below the lower back, just above the buttocks.

Research Course works @ pain lab, USA, Neuromuscular biomechanic lab, FSS, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist,
May be due to muscle spasm. You need to be on rest for couple of days, ice massage or hot packs will be helpful. Stop sitting or standing for long time. When you lie down on the bed keep changing your posture. If the pain still persists go and see a doctor or Physiotherapist. The information which you gave is not sufficient. You need to add your age, occupation, sex, duration of the pain, activities which increases and decreases the pain.

Get an xray of lumbar spine done. Ap, lat view. His pain may be associated with lumbar spondylosis. It can also be simply muscular. In any case you need to visit a physio therapy department near your place. They will guide him some stretching exercises for the muscular pain and some strengthening exercises for back pain.

I have back pain issue from last few year, whenever took painkiller, got relief after that same problem occur r.
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 Sir, I am suffering from cervical spondylosis and frozen shoulder for the last five years. Xray report says that I.V. Disc spaces are reduced at C5 - C6 and C6-C7 levels. My all pathological reports are normal except vitamin D 18.17.I am using sprays Plus capsule and Maxnuron LC once daily and vitamin3 sachet once a week. Is this curable or should I take some other treatment? My both shoulders have very pain all the time and in the morning my neck is full of stiffness. My age is 60 years and works on computer for 6 hours daily. Is physiotherapy necessary in this condition and age.

Physiotherapy is a must for you sir. Physiotherapy will help in your condition and age and can give you very good results. You dont have to live with the pain. And only physiotherapy can help you in overcoming your so said health problems. Do not consume pain killers for extended period of pain. For vit D, make sure you get exposed to sunlight atleast 20 mins a day
