Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, 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). (Excessive sitting or standing is to be avoided as well don’t carry much weight on shoulders). 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. Management: -Stretching or activities that place additional strain on the back are discouraged. -Sleeping with a pillow between the knees while lying on one side may increase comfort. -Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees would also relieves pain and no pillow under your head. -Some people seem to benefit from the use of ice or heat. Take care, do not use a heating pad on ‘high’ or place ice directly on the skin. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.

Remedies for general problems, cervical patients and low back pain patients

Remedies for general problems, cervical patients and low back pain patients

Due to the hectic schedule and regular bad eating habits and the changed style of relaxing with tv and high-headed pillow caused many health problems in the society. Here we focus on the remedies for general problems, cervical patients and low back pain patients.

For good mental and physical health, the stress and strain should be minimised or avoided by everyone. The patient must be assured of getting the right treatment. Daily rehabilitation is the principle of treatment, hence, prolong rest should be avoided at every cost. Ignorance of physical posture causes many problems; therefore postural education is of great importance for the patients. Patients should go for regular exercises like walking, swimming, exercises to increase the spinal mobility, maintain the range of motion with exercises, exercises for back muscles as advised by a physiotherapist. It is important to mention that personal hygiene is very important. One should not forget to take proper diet as advised by the physiotherapist. The patient should keep in mind the generated stress during their office hours; therefore, the working hours may be reduced or patients should take breaks in the day. One should avoid the high impact exercises such as jumping or running, strenuous sporting activity and sudden uncontrolled movements. Cars are an inevitable part of our daily routine but we should always use seat belts while driving. Many muscle relaxants are advised and thongs of advice are available in many forms today, but a patient should follow the guidelines of his or her physiotherapist and over use of muscle relaxants must be avoided.

Hi I am 29 years old, height 5.8 and weight 78 kg. I had increased uric acid level before 1year. I consulted with doctor and he prescribed tablet goutcheck and pan-40 & then I had relief. After 3-4 months I stopped medicines. Now i'm suffering from back pain in morning and some times I get tingling sensation in feets.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your current symptoms of back pain with off an on tingling sensation in feet region may not be linked to your earlier problem. If you have only localized backache with no other associated symptoms like radiating leg pain, numbness, weakness in legs etc, and no systemic symptoms like fever, loss of appetite, loss of weight etc, my advice to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or even tab paracetamol which suits you - intensive 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 3-4 times in a day - analgesic spray for local application like dynapar qps spray can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc if you do not improve in 2-3 weeks with this conservative management, we will need to evaluate you further in form of dynamic x rays to look for any instability as a cause for pain and some blood investigations to rule out any deficiencies etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
