Hello lybrate-user, back pain occur due to many reason: 1: muscle spasm 2: disc problem 3: stiff back 4: postural fault 5: traumatic history so it will be better if you send me your detail such as your symptoms either it is localised or radiate till your leg. Back strengthening exercise plays important role in releiving pain. Core muscle strengthening plays important role in releiving pain. So consult a physio and learn some strengthening exercise and start doing it guided by them.

I have back pain for last five days what should I do to get relief from this pain?

I have back pain for last five days what should I do to get relief from this pain?
Nowadays back pain is a very common complaint in young adults. It can be due to various reasons any injury, muscle strain eg-sudden twist while lifting object, bad posture, overuse of muscle or any internal disease like spondylitis, infection etc after looking at your pain from last 5 days I can recommend you following: precautions: 1. Avoid forward bending, if required then bend your knees first and then bend forward. 2. Avoid weight lifting. 3. Sit in chairs or car seats with proper back support. 4. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back like sidelying. 5. Get enough vit d from sun as vit d keep bones strong including spine, 6. Drink plenty of water to enhance the intervertebral disks 7. Avoid standing in the one position for a long time. 8. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back. Physio care: I would recommend you for i-care treatment that is especially for back or neck pain. Rest required but it doesn't mean a complete bed rest. Do not over exert your body. Work take rest and then work so that you do not feel tired and started paining. Treatment- 1. Apply ice or heat which ever suits you directly to the area of low back pain will decrease swelling and inflammation, and ease your discomfort. Apply it for 10 to 15 minutes only. 2. Relaxing for 5 minutes after ice or heat treatment. Massage - ask someone to massage your painful area using fingers or thumb. Massage using kneading technique. Slightly press the thumb and start rotating as it helps to induce relaxation, relieve pain, and reduce levels of stress chemicals, such as cortisol and noradrenaline. It will give you pain relief for time being. 3. After massage again relax for 5 min and apply any pain relieving ointment eg - volini or oraflame gel etc. Make sure not to do massage with the gel, it should not penetrate the body. Just a topical application of gel should be done. 4. Again relax your body for 5 minutes and perform some normal back extension and hamstring stretching exercises to get relief from your pain. While performing exercises if pain occurs then would recommend you to stop doing exercise. Massage or slightly rub the painful area and consult your near by physio to diagnose the actual cause of the pain as he/she can guide you proper exercise plan which will be beneficial for you after checking grade of your back pain. If you did not understand or have any doubt regarding the i-care plan, please inform

If you have low back pain and sciatica you can undergo intermittent pelvic traction where in your half of your body weight will be added in the electronic traction so that that would help you to reduce the pain, along with Interferential therapy stimulations which would help you to get relieved from the radiating pain. Apply ice for the pain to get subsided immediately. If you cannot go immediately for the physiotherapy treatment. Ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. It is suggestible to wear Lumbo sacral belt which would help you to build the abdominal muscle tone which itself would make you feel better. You can also wear MCR chappals which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back.

How to prevent arthritis from slowing you down

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Keep moving
Avoid holding one position for long.
While working get up and stretch every 15 minutes.
Discover your strength
Put the strongest joints and muscles to work.
Push open heavy doors with the side of the arm or shoulder. It will protect finger and wrist joints.
While climbing up let the strong leg lead you and while going down let the weaker leg lead you. It will reduce hip or knee stress.
Plan ahead
Simplify and organize your routines so you minimize movements that are difficult or painful.
Keep items you need for cooking, cleaning, or hobbies near where they are needed
Have multiple sets of cleaning supplies, one for the kitchen and one for the bathroom
Make use of labor-saving devices and adaptive aids.
Long-handled grippers, can be designed to grasp and retrieve out-of-reach objects.
Rubber grips can help one get a better handle on faucets, pens, toothbrushes and silverware.
Ask for help.
Only a very small percentage of people with arthritis become severely disabled and get dependent on others.
Educate family members and friends about how arthritis affects you.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

Dear as per your ht and wt it is perfectly alright. Regarding your swelling of your face is it swelling or puffyness. Do you use too much of make up and go out under sun in that case you shoud use sungoggles orbefore going out apply sunscreen lotion.

Always make sure that you use the therapeutic hot agents when the injury is in the chronic stage. They can also be used prior to physiotherapy or exercise to decrease muscle tension and increase flexibility.

I am 28 year old male and have a pain in my right shoulder for last 1 months. So what should I do?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are multiple causes of shoulder pain which can include issues in ligaments, tendons, bursa or the joint itself. I will advise you that if you have a localized pain in your shoulder without any history of recent significant injury or any associated swelling, redness or any other sign of infection or inflammation, then start with physical therapy, anti inflammatory medications and ice packs at home because most of these pains are due to tendinitis, bursitis or ligaments etc. See if your pain starts improving in 2-3 weeks time, then its ok otherwise I advise mri of the shoulder to see whats going on. Also try to avoid sporting activities using the involved shoulder, rest to shoulder is important. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I got pain in my ankle in the night after playing cricket full day. I am unable to walk properly. What can I do.
Our suggestion would be to do hot water fermentation along with Cold (ice) therapy. You shall also keep a pillow under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes.
