I am 25 years old male and have backache for last 2months. I have used pain relief ointment cream for couple of days but I haven't got any relief. What should I do now.

Hi, back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work. Causes of backache include: 1) muscle or ligament strain. Repeated heavy lifting or a sudden awkward movement may strain back muscles and spinal ligaments. 2) bulging or ruptured disks. Disks act as cushions between the bones (vertebrae) in your spine. The soft material inside a disk can bulge or rupture and press on a nerve. 3) arthritis. Osteoarthritis can affect the lower back. 4) skeletal irregularities. Back pain can occur if your spine curves abnormally. 5) osteoporosis. Preventive measures 1) maintain a healthy weight. 2) keep your sitting posture correct/straight. Do not slouch 3) avoid bending from back while lifting something from ground, instead bend at your knees. 4) hot fomentation to lower back or the painful part. 5) keep the coir side of your mattress up to give your back firm support and change the mattress if it is curved. 6) wear comfortable footwear with shock absorbing soles in shoes. In case above measures do not help, take rhus. Tox-30, 2 drops in 1 tsp water thrice a day for a week and revert back:

Remember the 30-30 Rule - Prevent a hunchback

Doctor Of Physical Therapy (DPT), Bachelor of Physical Therapy
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Remember the 30-30 Rule - Prevent a hunchback
Its a golden winning rule and it can help prevent hunchback.

For every 30 minutes of doing a certain activity do 30 seconds of movement in opposite direction.

Every 30 minutes that you sit in the chair get up and do a stretch with backward bend for 30 seconds.

If your neck is bothering you just take a moment to draw your chin in as if getting a double chin, roll your shoulders back and down and stretch for 30 seconds.

If you realize you haven't taken a deep breath in 30 minutes then take a moment to focus on your breathing, take slow deep breaths for 30 seconds.

Set a timer for every 30 minutes you spend sitting, stretch for 30 seconds and feel better and look better.

Hi pain or soreness in the foot, that eases with time during the day, is generally indicative of plantar fasciitis. The first step you take generally after sitting or standing for a long time or when you get up from the bed is painful. As you start walking the pain clears up. Plantar fascia is a ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes. Other causes of foot pain can be rheumatoid arthritis, faulty arch, ligament tears, fractures, and gout. +wear soft padded footwear. +do stretching of calf muscles +learn strengthening exercise of ankle +take contrast bath at physio clinic. Do reply to discuss detailed treatment plan. Wishing you a good health.

You first need a proper examination by a sports injury specialist to check any damage to the ligaments due to the injury.

This looks like a ligament injury. We would need to get an mri done for ascertaining the injury areas. Consultation with an orthopaedician will help.

How does neuclus pulposus take to decay when it comes out of annulus fibrosus and extruded to nerve root as for example in L5-S1? Does it decay over the time or it never?

disc herniation develops with time if you are having constant pain and swelling. good circulation is required for healing. if you are having constant pain that disc will degenerate. take physiotherapy and back extensor exercises n apply hot pack or ice pack whatever gives u better result.

You can feel tired due to lack of essential nutrients, not getting enough sleep, a weak immune system, excessive drinking, skipping meals, emotional stress, and too much physical labor. Persistent weakness can be caused by health problems like anemia, arthritis, hypothyroidism, a sleep disorder, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes and heart disease. In these cases, it is very important to find out the exact cause behind your weakness. To feel energetic and refreshed in life, you must exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, maintain your ideal body weight, follow a good diet, sleep properly, drink water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated, avoid alcohol and stop smoking.

Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

Lybrate-user ji you hv not mentioned your age. Bt looking to your height your weight is ok not more so you do not need to reduce your weight. Bt you can take some precaution like do not use stairs as far as possible. Do not bend you knee more than 90 degree means do not squate. Use western toilet instead of indian toilet. While taking lunch dinner or breakfast use dinning table nd do not sit on floor. Nd yes if you can join a gym or go to a physiotherapist he wil guide you some exercise which wil strength your quadriceps muscle.

Hi, probably the reason must be bowling position and strain of bowling. So take rest properly. Put some ointment there. If it is not cured by two or three days and condition worsens, do not hesitate to consult privately.
