Due to an increase in sedentary lifestyle, the number of incidences of lower back pain is on the rise, and that too, at a pretty scary pace. People who suffer from it look at a variety of treatment options such as allopathic painkillers and physiotherapy, but many of them overlook one of the most effective methods that exist – homeopathy.
Homeopathy is the most customised and a highly comprehensive way that one can use to treat a variety of conditions and diseases. This is due to it being tailor-made to fit the patient rather than being a ‘one size fits all’ solution like much of allopathy is.
When lower back pain is being treated with homeopathy, there is a range of medicines that can be used. One of the most common is Arnica Montana, which is used in the case of minor trauma arising from injuries and falls, or even exerting too much pressure. The reason why this is useful is because it addresses the stiff and bruised muscles one has in such a situation and provides relief.
Talking about the stiffness of the lower back, Bryonia is also a very common homeopathic medicine to address such a problem, especially when one feels that there is tearing pain in the back. Most lower back pains have to do with muscle tissues, which are not in the condition they should be in. As a result, Magnesia Phosphorica, which is a combination of magnesium and phosphorus can be used to good effect as it is one of the homeopathic salts, which improve the tissues. For people who experience spasms in the muscles, this medication is very likely to have a high degree of success because it works as a nerve stabilizer. People who have this sort of pain usually feel that their pain improves if warmth is applied to the area.
Due to spending too much time sitting down and not moving around, it can be so that one experiences pain when standing up from a sitting position. As a matter of fact, this pain may radiate to the hip and make one feel as if the legs are heavier than normal. Unlike other cases, the pain here may not be a shooting one, but it might just be dull, thereby resulting in muscle weakness.
Rhus Toxicodendron has its origins in poison ivy and is used to effectively treat the pain felt from initial movement, which is eased by backward bending and heat. No matter the sort of back pain, homeopathy has a definite cure it.

Osteoporosis is a condition wherein the bones become brittle and weak; so much so that even mildly stressful activities such as coughing, bending over or even a slight fall (such as the one from a high rise chair) can result in fractures. Osteoporosis-related fractures commonly occur in the spine, hip or the wrist. The human body has a continuous mechanism of bone absorption and removal. In case of osteoporosis, the creation of new bones doesn’t happen in accordance with the removal of old bones.
The bones of the spine get extremely vulnerable to breakage and even cracking open. The fractures in the spine, also known as vertebral compression fractures can cause a sharp stinging pain in the back that may make sitting, standing, or even walking a very tardy task.
Abnormally less or high body weight
Menopause or low levels of sex hormones
Gender: This disorder is more likely to affect women as compared to men. Also women, who are above 50 are more likely to suffer from this debilitating disorder.
Race is a significant risk factor of osteoporosis. If you are of Asian descent, you are more likely to be affected by it.
Having a family history of osteoporosis will put you at a greater risk of this disorder.
Fractured or collapsed vertebra causing back pain
A stooped posture
A shrunken appearance (as if one has had loss of height)
Very fragile bones, thus increasing risks of fractures
Severe and sudden pain in the back
Difficulty in twisting or bending the body
Lower spine fractures are way more troublesome as compared to fractures in the upper spine. Fracturing more than a bone in the spine also remains a huge possibility.
Diagnosis and Treatment:
Firstly, an X-ray or a computerized tomography (CT scan) will be done to have a closer look at the bones. A bone density test is another commonly used method of diagnosing osteoporosis.
Steroids and medications: Some medications may be used to prevent or combat osteoporosis. These include alendronate, ibandronate, risedronate and zoledronic acid.
Physical therapy: Just like muscles, bones get stronger too when you exercise. Weight-bearing and muscle- strengthening exercises are the most helpful in this regard and are considered best for the treatment of osteoporosis. Cardiovascular exercises such as walking, jogging or even swimming can prove to be immensely beneficial.
Diet: Make a diet chart that includes high-calcium food items, dairy products such as yogurt, cheese, and low-fat milk, tofu, green vegetables such as collard greens and broccoli, sea fish such as salmon and sardines.
Salt: Limit salt intake
Therapy: Hormone replacement therapy (treatment method consisting of estrogens to alleviate and treat symptoms of osteoporosis) is another method of treatment that can be recommended by the doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopedist.
