Pain on turning the neck to sides, Also pain on deep breath. Smoker since 4 years,
Dear lybrate-user, pain on neck turning with pain on deep breath and that too from 4 years should not be taken lightly, it could be a lung infection of tumor growth that may spread to neck through nodes, do not waste you time and consult your family doctor for primary screening.

From last couple of months I am feeling bone pain in the leg. Especially in the night.
For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Are you taking medicines for the treatment of Osteoporosis?

Are you taking medicines for the treatment of Osteoporosis?

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

Single Best Exercise for Bad Back

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. 

I have lot of pain on my back. I had used many medicines or pain relief but still I am not satisfied. Please suggest me some another treatment or medicine.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it is necessary to do muscle stretching before & after every sport to prevent injuries as well as to avoid delayed onset muscle soreness leading to muscle tightness & pain. If the pain is only from the muscles, then apply moist heat pack for less than five minutes followed by gentle low back & upper back stretches. Each stretch position need to be maintained for 30 seconds and repeated for 3-4 times. To know more about how to do stretches,

I'm 34 years old male. I have been having lower backache for two weeks now. It just came suddenly. I used to carry water everyday. I felt tingling in my right leg also below the knee. I have consulted a Dr. Also. He did x-ray and gave some medications. He told x-ray is normal and its just muscle strain. But the pain still there now though not that much painful. Is it really just muscle strain or slipped disc?

Hi Thanks for your query and welcome to Lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from Fortis hospital, New Delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - To maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - If pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - Physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - Adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - Ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - Analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - Avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc We will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena Consultant Orthopaedics Fortis Hospital, New Delhi
