I am getting back pain when am standing more time and when I was doing walking alsa getting some pain.

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.

choose a chair that comfortably supports your spine. sit erect always. do not lean forward during work. choose an appropriate table to avoid leaning forward, place your thighs completely supported in chair, place your foot completely resting on floor, do relax from chair periodically, follow general mobility exercises before starting work, walking or swimming are best exercises to mobilise all your joints.

I have pain in my back. What should I do now? and I have pain in left foot.

Doctor Of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bachelor of Physical Therapy
Physiotherapist,
I have pain in my back. What should I do now? and I have pain in left foot.
Upper back pain can be due to tightness in back and shoulder blade muscles and sometimes referred from the neck. Try gentle stretching exercises for upper back and neck daily. Use heat or cold therapy as tolerated. For foot pain try calf stretches and see a podiatrist if pain persists. Wish you good luck.

Hi, Get your blood tested for CBC with Hb% & ESR. Simple nutritional deficiency can cause general weakness of the body. Would advise you to take homoeopathic medicines - Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. - both thrice daily, and let me know about your condition after a month.

Insert your feet and leg in hot water and wrap a hot towel over your knees and wherever it hurts. Keep this going for 15 minutes and replace it with a cold compression. If you want to reduce your joint pain after viral fever, try out these two methods. First, massage your joints with olive oil and apple cider vinegar for 15 minutes. After 10 minutes, drink half a glass of lemon and vinegar solution, it is a natural pain killer for joint pain. Turmeric is one of the many best ingredients you can use to massage your joints with when suffering with pain. It's inflammation properties will help to decrease the pain in no time. You can either add garlic to all your meals or you can make a garlic paste and apply it to the joints that hurt to help decrease the pain naturally at home

Simple Ways to Reduce Muscle Tightness

Doctor Of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bachelor of Physical Therapy
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Simple Ways to Reduce Muscle Tightness
How to reduce muscle tightenss?

Drinking plenty of water, often considered to be between eight to ten glasses per day, provides many benefits, including preventing and relieving tight and cramped muscles related to dehydration. However, tight muscles can have a variety of causes and might require dietary and lifestyle changes to adequately deal with.
Minerals, electrolytes and water are all needed for normal muscle tone and function. Calcium is especially important for contraction, magnesium is needed for relaxation, and water for firmness and electrolyte exchange.
Athletes commonly have tight muscles and also people who are under stress. Tight muscles lose their flexibility and might become painful to the touch. Mineral deficiency, especially magnesium, can lead to muscle tightness, twitching and maybe even restless leg syndrome at night. A lack of electrolytes, such as sodium, interferes with nerve conductance to muscle fibers and results in tightness and spasms. Poor blood circulation hampers the minerals, electrolytes and water getting to muscles, which can cause symptoms.

Most of us drink a lot of beverages but it has either caffeine or alcohol which can both lead to mild dehydration.

Simple ways to reduce muscle tightness

1. Drink plenty of water
2. Reduce caffeine and alcohol.
3. Eat bananas and foods rich in magnesium and use seasalt with food.
4. Do stretching exercises
5. Try massage to relieve pain from tight muscles.

If pain and tightness persists consult a health practitioner for evaluation and treatment.

Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

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.
