I am a 25 year old female. I have been having this lower back pain since a month now. It started with my periods. I thought is normal as I have lower back pain and cramps during periods but this time it did not go away. I cannot locate the pain externally but its severe when I do any physical activity that involves stress of the affected area. I have history of pregnancy and abortion too but overcame all without any side affects. I do not have history of any fatal disease either. I am usually active and schedule little work out time to time. I have an average body weight and healthy body. But I do skip meals a lot and I tend to sit continuously for 8 hours in office. Please suggest me a valuable advice. Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user Your pain seems to be related to your posture .Hormonal changes during your menses may make it worse. I would advise the following - 1. MRI of the Lumbar spine to rule out any disc herniation or other spinal conditions. 2.Back strengthening exercises like the Bhujangasana ,avoid the exercises when you have severe pain. Go for regular brisk walks but avoid jumping or running and high heels. Take a diet rich in calcium like milk, eggs and green leafy vegetables .Take half an hour of sun exposure to improve your Vitamin D levels. Hope this helps.

My father is 55 years old and he is suffering from neck pain and the inability of hand movement. After a few consultations, some doctors suggested that it is due to the frozen shoulder problem. They provided some exercise schedules only. Are there any other remedies except the exercises? If only this is the solution, which exercises are best to conduct on a routine basis? Thanks in advance.

The injury or strain to the tendons and muscles at the shoulder joint may cause the difficulty in mobility of rotator joint of shoulder (ball and socket joint). Commonly known as frozen shoulder. Radiating pain may felt at the neck also. The stiffness in neck muscle in long term will cause cervical spondylosis. Exercises with rotatory movement of the shoulder clock wise and anti-clock wise slowly and steady will improve the range of movements. Stiffness in the shoulder will ease with hot fomentation and application of warm sesame oil+ Castor oil mixture. Stand 1.5 ft far in front of the wall facing the wall. Slowly crowl the fingers of the hand on the wall to raise the shoulder comfortably and in that plane, rotate the shoulder circularly without folding the elbow. 5 each in both directions. Day by day increase the diameter of the circle. Do not use high pillow, use thin and firm pillow extending from upper back to support neck. Diabetic patient may take longer duration to recover, so, if diabetic, give attention to treat it effectively too.

Dear lybrate user, a kidney stone is mainly formed due to the accumulation of the minerals present in urine. Such accumulation occurs mainly due to low intake of fluids. Continuous low fluid intake results in the deposits of the minerals over the stone & eventually leads to an increase in the size of the stone. Formation of stone leads to pain along the kidney region. If the size of the kidney stone is below 3 mm then it is possible to get rid of it without any surgery. Take homoeopathic mother tincture berberis vulgaris q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for 15 days. The stone will be expelled through urine in between the span of 15 days of medication. But if the size of the stone is more than 3 mm then you should surely go for surgery.

Hi along with medicines, wear a splint 24 hours a day for 4 to 6 weeks to hold the affected area firm and still. Apply ice for pain. Stop doing anything that worsens the condition. Best wishes. You can ice the area to reduce inflammation.

Hello, Apply Homoeopathic medicine – Thiosinaminum Q few drops mixed in a glycerin solution on scars that are visible (as it is less greasy, so is more easily absorbed into the skin). Also take Causticum 200 orally twice daily for 4 weeks.

Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do stretching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you dont get relief see a physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

How can a Physiotherapists helps you in backpain?
A physiotherapist is a special health care provider who has specific knowledge of body structures related to spine, i.E. Muscles, ligaments, bony vertebrae, discs, alignment of spine, force distribution etc. Physiotherapist is specially trained to treat disorders of musculoskeletal conditions like  back.He uses many modern approach to treat backpain and help you to avoid  any future back problems.

What are the reasons causing backpain?
There are many reasons behind an episode of back pain.Sometimes you have an injury or a pull and hurt your back.As time passes by structures will heal by itself and you get relief from pain.
But there are some complicated reasons like poor posture, obese, poor habits in working, faulty bending and of course age is a main cause of back pain in  aging discs of our spine.

Some people experience only pain but have sensory problems also, so what does this mean?

In young healthy persons our spine is strong and capable of withstand any disturbing force which causes back, unless person has an injury or a specific cause to it.As the injury heals pain automatically goes down.
But in person with tasks like long sitting, poor postural habits, tearing of disc, spine loses its ability to withstand these forces and so loses its anatomical configuration slightly in the form of body adjustments like bony beaks, which sometimes press passing nerves from spine so we have sensory feelings of pain.

I have backpain, should I go for MRI or CT scan?
MRI or CT scans are special investigation prescribed by healthcare provider to make a strong diagnosis.These are not usually advised in every backpain.
An X ray can be advised to check for bones and disc of spine.

Is Heating pad  are enough to cure backpain?
Heating pads are advised to decrease pain and spasm. They are usually advised but for decreasing pain and uncomfortable which is the first reason of visit to a physiotherapist.
Specialized manual therapy and stabilization exercise, kinesthetic awareness etc  are important in back rehabilitation program .
