Sir,/Madam, I have pain under left back rib since 4 years, I have seen so many doctors but all suggest only physiotherapy, I did so, but only after 6-7 days pain again come back. I also do back exercise, which shown by physiotherapist. No good result. Now often I got typical strain through bone ribs, and pain is locking my breath even. Pain remains for few days, it forced me to take pain killer. I have joint pain but no muscle pain, no swelling, no reddish ness. I have lot of blood test report. I want a suitable advice from all section of doctors. Please help me. If any doctor who want to cure me. Please guide me. Thank you.
Are you taking medicines for the treatment of Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis literary means porous bones or bones which have developed holes in them. This is an exaggerated terminology because in this condition the bones become thin, weak and less dense. This weakness causes them to break (fracture) easily during minor falls and injuries.
This problem affects both men and women but is more frequent and severe in women. It is estimated that every second woman over 50 years of age will have a fracture of backbone or hip or wrist in her lifetime due to osteoporosis.
Prevention is the best way of avoiding osteoporosis and is achieved by diet and exercise. One should have a good nutritious diet which gives you enough calcium, vitamin D and phosphorus like yogurt, paneer, and green leafy vegetables. Second is to have an active lifestyle by having all kind of exercises. Walking, stationary bikes, small weights, and yoga are recommended.
Once the disease occurs and osteoporosis sets in, one is usually prescribed medicines as there is almost no role of surgery. Even medicines will not improve whatever bones have been lost but will slow down further deterioration.
If you have been taking commonly prescribed medicines (Bisphosphonates-/ alendronate: used weekly or biweekly) for having low bone density, then you need to be cautious. Long-term use of these medicines has now been linked with problems in the jaw bone and atypical fractures of certain bones.
These problems are more likely to occur if a woman takes the medication on and on for many years, as happens with many women found to have osteopenia or strong family history of fractures.
The best way to prevent these complications is to give your- self a break. It is recommended that for osteoporotic women, with every decade of drug use, you should take a break of 1-2 years.
While women with milder problems and having osteopenia, should take a year-long holiday from these medicines after every five years. But always check with your doctor before starting or stopping these medicines.

SINGLE BEST EXERCISE FOR BAD BACK
EXERCISES FOR TREATING A BAD BACK
Once the stage is set with adequate rest and any necessary drug therapy, the following exercises reverse the structural and functional changes of the motion segment. Basic theoretical treatment regimens, using various combinations of the exercises for specific back disorders.
ROCKING THE KNEES TO THE CHEST
The least taxing and therefore least frightening exercise in the early loosening of a jammed segment is rocking the knees to the chest. It is performed in the horizontal supine position to eliminate compression of the spine.The primary function of the knee rocking exercise is to fan open the posterior compartments of the spine like flaring out a deck of cards.
The action stretches the muscles down the back of your spine when their tonic hold has pulled the inter spaces shut. Releasing the muscles un-jams the facet sand releases the pincer effect on the inter-vertebral disc. Thus the passive stretching inhibits the additional closing down effect across the inflamed vertebral segment. By providing ‘active’ decompression it provides the first glimmer of the spine lifting off the compressed segments.
It is a very efficient first base exercise.Like spinal rolling which you will read about below, rocking the knees to the chest is very effective if you have just jarred your spine or hurt it in some way. Rocking has an immediate neuro-physiological ‘switching-off’ effect which defuses the alarm and pre-empts the local muscles locking up the spine.
The to-and-fro rocking action familiarizes your back with movement again so it doesn’t have time to get stiff. It keeps your back moving in anon-threatening way and encourages the fundamental physiologic-unhindered blood flow and proper drainage- to resume.
In the acute phase the pull-and-release evacuates the inflammatory products from the site of injury. With more chronic conditions,the main benefit is the physical stretching of the tight structures.
The non-weight-bearing loosening of all the soft tissues of the posterior compartment, including the back wall of the disc, immediately gives the tight segment more freedom to move.Although rocking the knees to the chest is most effective for segment stiffness of L5 and L4, it is also effective higher up in the lumbar spine where there may be some rotation of the segment as well.Simple as it sounds, rocking the knees is often difficult to get started, let alone do well.
