I had undergone c section fr delivery, it's been 1 month nw. Hw many days shud I take rest? From wen cn I start doing regular household wrk n from wen cn I start 2 exercise? Is it okay to do all household chores? Have a lot of backache, wat I do fr tht?

Physiotherapist, Ghaziabad
Dear lybrate-user first of all congrats. Then post natal exercises we start from day 2 after c section delivery. Kindly avoid bending activities n the exercises start from the base and then move on to advance level. Dnt worry we can work things up. And then there are certain things like baby feeding position, stair climbing n all and a list of wat to do n wat not to do. N your diet also. So its right time to start exercises without furthur delay for back, neck, pelvic floor n abdominal.

This could be due to lumbar spondylosis with nerve root compression. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take paracetamol 250mg od & sos bio d3 max 1 tab od x 10 days. Do back (spine) exercises make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take take medicines as prescribed it may have to be further investigated. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. Adv digital xray: ls spine ap & lat views

I am a 23 year old guy. I have been experiencing backache from past few days. It starts when I wake up in the morning and stays throughout the day varying in magnitude. The center of the pain is on the back near shoulder, which affects my left hand. It pains dearly. I took some pain killers too. It tends to reduce but returns back after a few hours. I don't know if its a muscle pain or if I am having any problems with the bone there, as when I move my left arm ,i can hear the slight unusual sound of bones, you know when they rub against each other. What should I do?

Homeopath, Secunderabad
If it's temporary pain due to strain to the muscles (bad posture can be one of the common reasons) then you should do well with rest and a little bit of warm-up and stretching exercises. You can also apply hot /cold application for pain management. Please do take care of your life style now. Prevention is better than cure. Learn more about healthy lifestyle from the Internet and follow the rules. If it pains without any relief from these tips then it needs a thorough checkup and further investigations. You can also take Homeopathy for your pain if it is persistent.

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.

Its not well researched. Usually a graded exercise program for stretching tight gastroc soleus and strengthening ankle dorsiflexors can help get rid of pain. Good luck for speedy recovery.

Will Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Ease Your Back Pain?

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics, DNB - Orthopedics

Will Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Ease Your Back Pain?

The spine plays a very crucial role, both from a person’s movement and sensation point of view. It carries the nervous supply for a lot of internal organs and the lower body. By virtue of its structure, it also helps in movement through the disks. Due to various reasons, spinal injury is common, causing pain along the back, lower extremities, neck etc.

Medicines and exercise are the first line of treatment for most spinal injuries. The issue, however, is that these only provide relief from the pain and the medicines, but do not actually ‘rectify’ the underlying problem. Whether it is a herniated disk or a pinched nerve, the medicines and exercise can relieve the symptoms, but the disk continues to be herniated and the nerve continues to be pinched. Definite treatment is in the form of surgery, and with recent advancements in the field of spinal surgery, there are minimally invasive surgical options, which provide complete cure with minimal recovery time. Some of the benefits of this are listed below-

  1. Smaller incision compared to traditional surgical procedures, where only the injured area is accessed
  2. The surrounding tissues are untouched, unless they are injured and require repair
  3. Lesser bleeding compared to earlier techniques
  4. Lesser painful procedure
  5. Reduced hospitalization period
  6. Quicker recovery and return to normal activities

The question, however, is whether this is indicated in everybody. A detailed discussion with your surgeon keeping the below points in mind will help identify the answer for this. The main driver should be the answer to the question – will the surgery be able to effectively relieve you of the pain and symptoms? Additionally, the following factors help in getting better results out of a minimally invasive spinal surgery.

  1. Presence of symptoms relating to nerve compression, including pain from the spine down the leg.
  2. Recent onset of symptoms, with pain starting days to months before seeing the doctor. This indicates the condition is relatively new and so damage is minimal, indicating favorable outcome. Chronic pain conditions take slightly longer time compared to recent injuries.
  3. People with active lifestyle who engage in regular physical exercise are likely to have better benefits from the minimally invasive procedure.
  4. Smoking reduces blood flow to the spine, leading to disk degeneration and weakening of bones. Healing is highly slowed down and recovery is overall delayed.
  5. Excessive weight puts strain on the back, and so healing can be delayed or badly affected with more complications. It is not a contraindication, but be prepared for a longer recovery period.

Talk to a doctor keeping these points in mind, and you can bid farewell to your back pain forever.
