Dear lybrate-user ji, namaskar, yes. Long hour sitting is known to cause postural backache. The solution is to avoid it. But whenever possible after 1 or 2 hrs. You should do forward-backward and side bending of the back as well as turning and twisting for 5-10 times. It takes 2-3 minutes only. Also you should learn spine exercises at a physiotherapy center and do them regularly in the morning for 15-20 minutes. You may also use a ls belt while working. When ever you have pain. Do hot fomentation and apply any gel / balm and take ultracet tab. Sos (as and if required) for pain killing. You will certainly settle with regular exercises. Take care.

I have cervical spondylitis Wht are the causes of it I get dizziness best treatment for it.
Please note the following in respect to your queries: The bones and protective cartilage in your neck are prone to wear and tear that can lead to cervical spondylosis. Possible causes of the condition include: Bone spurs/Dehydrated spinal disks/Herniated disks/Injury/Ligament Stiffness/Overuse (Some occupations or hobbies involve repetitive movements or heavy lifting, such as construction work. This can put extra pressure on the spine, resulting in early wear and tear). Do take Homeopathic medicines for your condition along with some management programes for your condition.

You seem to be having a mental worry, and you are trying to explore a solution in your mind all the time. Oil has nothing to do with headache. But massaging head by somebody who loves you can relieve the headache. If headache persists, please consult

You should visit to orthopedic doctor for proper investigation for the cause of trouble and specific treatment. Maintain right posture of the body because most of the time cause of backache is postural. Eat calcium rich food. Avoid forward bending and overexertion of the spines. Rest on firm mattress. Do mild and bearable exercise of back.

I am suffering from severe back pain due to muscle tightness in legs and calf muscles. Pain in shoulders as well.

Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight (even while sitting or standing), avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). Always select a chair with proper back support and hand-rest. (Excessive sitting or standing is to be avoided as well don’t carry much weight on shoulders). Apart from these, stress could be the major cause of pains! Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (The mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) (also keep doing physiotherapy simultaneously which relieves your muscular stiffness and pain).

Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Inform after 5 days.

Hunching over a desk is a leading reason why people end up with crippling back pain at some point in their lives. But a few simple changes in the way you work can make your pain go away. 1-Keep your head up; Focus on aligning your head and neck right above your shoulders; avoid straining forward. 2-Be choosy with your chair: Pick one that allows your lower back to rest against a lumbar support. Then tilt the back of the chair so it’s very slightly reclined. 3-Plant your feet: Keep them flat on the floor and shoulder-width apart to quiet tension in your knees and ankles. 4-Take breaks: Getting up at least once an hour— just do some shoulder rolls—reduces pressure on spinal disks and boosts circulation. If your back pain is severe please go to a Physiotherapist for detail assessment and management of your pain. Best wishes.
