- kindly tell what treatment had been taken for cervical spondylitis till so far. - for cervical spondylitis, there is neck exercises after hot water appllication.- if swellling is there than need for physiotherapy ultrasound, ift - she also having leg pain, you hadnot mentioned cause of it as cervical spondylitis os neck pain only.- she might be having low back pain also. - check her vit D, B12, uric acid levels. As deficiency of these vitamins will make her bones and muscles weak day by day, increasing her arthritis condition which may even lead to fracture in later cases. As a precaution: 1 avoid heavy weight lifting 2 avoid any jery movement to spine. 3 use of lumbar belt or cervical collar.- if her pain is more kindly go for physio sessions as soon as possible.

5 Must Do Exercises To Maintain A Healthy Spine!

Spinal cord is a very important part of your body as it renders support to your body.  It also gives your body a good posture and thus maintaining a healthy spine is very essential. An unfit spinal cord can lead to various complicated problems.

The following are 5 must do exercises in order to maintain a healthy spine:

  1. Exercising your core muscles can help you to maintain a fit spine. Your core muscles refer to the muscles of your lower back and your abdominal muscles. These muscles give support to your spine. So exercising them can give you a healthy spine.
  2. Walking regularly can also give you a healthy spine. It is suitable for people of all age groups. Daily walking can help you to recover from various spinal illnesses as well such as spinal stenosis.
  3. Swimming is also a good exercise for maintaing a fit spinal cord. Swimming helps to exercise all back muscles and thus, gives you a healthy spinal cord.
  4. Lying down straight with your face down on an even and firm surface for about twenty minutes can help you to get a healthy spine and also a good body posture.
  5. Cycling can also help you achieve a healthy spine. While cycling, all your back muscles and the muscles of the lower part of your body are engaged in physical activity. If the muscles of your lower back are strong, then it can help you to keep your spine fit.

Other than these exercises, stretching your limbs and other stretching exercises are also beneficial for a healthy spine. But it is highly recommended for you to consult a doctor before doing any exercise in order to be guided in the proper manner and avoid further complications.

You must lose some weight weight reduction can not be done over night. You have to take it as a way of life. Do diet control. No sugar in tea, coffee, milk etc. No sweets take small frequent feeds. When you get used to it, skip one meal. You should do non weight bearing yoga exercises. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Bones does not grow Is it not? In such cases how the broken bone joins and make like a good non infected bone? Regards

bone cells multiply and this lays down new bone by a process of cell multiplication and then calcification of the matrix. when the bone breaks the cells in the broken ends multiply and forms a new bone called CALLUS which later matures to form the proper hard bone.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

I have a some compression between L4 and L5 as per MRI for the last about 5 years. During walk (occasionally) I feel some difficulty in walking and take rest or I need to sit for about 5 minutes and than feel normal. Please advice if there is any medicine or physiotherapy ? Pramod

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Pain in the leg can be due to nerve compression in the back or inadequate blood supply to leg due to vessel compression or narrowing of arteries. Your MRI will have to be seen to evaluate amount of compression. If compression is mild, then an arterial and venous Doppler of both lower limbs will help to assess the blood supply to the legs. The treatment depends on the cause of the pain.

Hello, not every low back pain is sciatica. But if you say its sciatica then I believe you. Proper rehabilitation can cure sciatica completely. If it is due to disc herniation traction, electric modalities and exercises can do wonders. Many at times some conditions mimics sciatica. They are known as Pseudo sciatica. I hope you know the difference between the two before you come to any conclusion. Sciatica pain is heartening but can be cured if treated properly.
