Watch your weight. If you are obese then try to lose weight by regular exercise. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Uric acid diet should be relatively high in carbohydrates, moderate in protein and low in fat. Complex carbohydrates like whole grain cereals, fruits and vegetables contain fiber that can help in proper digestion of the foods and assimilation of the nutrients. Eat no more than 100 gm of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Say no to alcohol and sweetened cold drinks. Fresh fruits like apples, bananas, oranges and lime are beneficial. Black cherries are considered to be beneficial in reducing uric acid levels. Drink at least two liters of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice. Please note that normal uric acid levels in our body. Men 3.5 to 7.0 mg/dl, women 2.5 to 5.7 mg/dl.

Back Pain And Its Physiotherapy Treatment Option!

Back pain is common for usually everyone. Research shows that 80% of the adults suffer from back pain every year. Back pain can occur in people of any age group. But it is common between people aged between 35 and 60. There is no particular reason for back pain. External injury, internal injury, deformation in bones, accidents and many more factors can be responsible for causing back pain.

Upper back pain can occur due to inflammation of the neck and spine. Lower back pain can be associated with lower back muscles, nerves, and spines, abdomen region, vertebrae discs etc.

What are the risk factors for having a back pain?
There are several physical and mental issues that cause back pain. These are as follows:

  • Mental stress and tension
  • Inactive lifestyle
  • Depressed condition
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Too much physical activity
  • Women are more prone to back pain than men.
  • Pregnancy- in pregnancy, women tend to suffer from back pain easily.
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Too much physical labour

Symptoms of back pain

  1. The major symptom is pain, which can be mild or chronic. The pain can occur in any part of the back, buttocks or legs.
  2. Apart from ache, another common symptom is weight loss
  3. Fever
  4. Inflammation in spine
  5. Difficulty in passing urine
  6. Feeling numb around anus, buttock and genitals.
  7. Sudden trauma or injury
  8. Low immunity system

A strain is believed to be the most common reason which causes back pain. Strained muscles and ligaments, lifting heavy objects, an abrupt movement or a muscle spasm, everything can end up causing back pain.


Apart from this, some factors mentioned below can be responsible for causing back pain:

 

Experts diagnose back pain with the help of X-ray, CT scan, bone scan etc followed by some blood tests.

Treatment of back pain
Depending upon the test results and the severity of pain, the treatment of back pain can be prescribed.

  1. Medication: If painkillers don't work well, then the doctors prescribe nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. A few antidepressants have proven to work well for relieving symptoms of back pain.
  2. Physiotherapy: Physiotherapy can treat back pain effectively. Applying ice, heat, electric stimulation to the back muscles can help in decreasing the pain. Apart from this,some physical exercises and maintaining a good posture can help in alleviating the pain.
  3. Cortisone injection: It is an anti-inflammatory drug which helps in decreasing pain.
  4. Surgery: Surgery is performed if the patient builds up herniated disk.
  5. Cognitive behavioral therapy: Cognitive behavioural therapy is helpful for patients having chronic back pain.

Apart from the above discussed methods, there are a few complimentary therapies that are known for treating back pain. Osteopath, shiatsu, chiropractic, acupuncture are the therapies which can help in reducing back pain. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

At least 1 litre of water for 1 hour of running. 2.Take healthy snack after running like fruits or oats or chicken or dal. 3 Take shower with cold water to relieve body soreness after runs. Apply ice pack on calf muscles after running. 4. Always do stretching of back and leg muscles before starting your run. 5. Take a break of at least one day a week . 6. Be gradual in your runs. Gradual increase in speed and distance of run is recommended. 7. Do not run with improper shoes. Wear good shoes with sole support. 8. Avoid running when pain is present.

Sciatica Pain - 5 Ways You Can Treat It!

Sciatica Pain - 5 Ways You Can Treat It!

Sciatica pain arises from the sciatic nerve which is the single largest nerve in our body. It consists of individual nerve roots, which branching out from the lower back of the spine to the back of each leg and combining together forms the sciatic nerve. The origination of the sciatic pain lies in the lower back of the body and radiates down the buttock to the sciatic nerve.

Causes of the sciatica pain

  1. ArthritisIf an individual is diagnosed with arthritis, then he or she can expect a throbbing pain or numbness down till the leg.
  2. Herniated discAnother cause could be a herniated disc in the lower back of the body.
  3. SpondylosisSpondylosis in the lower back would also be a reason for the development of the sciatica pain.
  4. PIVD/DISC bulge

Other causes are a spinal injury, diseased degenerative disc, infection on and around the lower back. The pain would worsen, if an individual is in an occupation where he or she has to stand or sit for hours at length. The lifting of heavy things would strain the sciatic nerves as well.

How to identify sciatica pain?
Sciatica pain varies from infrequent to a constant throbbing down the lower back. So initially it is difficult to detect whether it is sciatic pain or not. But when the constant pain in the lower back leads right down till the toes and foot, it is really time for an individual to get in touch with a doctor. The pain can give a burning sensation almost searing making it difficult for the person to stand up or walk properly. Along with the pain, one can feel fatigued. An involvement of the spinal cord is rare in the sciatic pain but is possible.

Treatment for sciatica pain
Sciatica can be treated in both surgical and non-surgical way. Surgical treatment is rare as sciatica tends to respond well with non-surgical treatments. If the pain continues for over a month despite treatment, surgical treatment will be considered. The non-surgical pain treatment would include physical exercises and oral medications along with natural treatment.

  1. Medications: Painkiller medications prescribed by the doctor can be used to reduce sciatica. Medicines like aspirin, non-steroidal or oral steroids can help reduce the pain.
  2. Steroid injection: Epidural steroid injection acts faster as it is injected in the affected area, thus providing relief from the pain quickly.
  3. Exercise: Early morning exercises can be quite helpful.
  4. Percutaneous Endoscopic DiscectomyThe surgical treatment of Percutaneous endoscopic disc dissectomy constitutes a large part of interventional pain physicians and it has evolved considerably in terms of surgical technique and instrumentation. Percutaneous endoscopic discectomy is a relatively new technique for removing lumbar disc herniation. It involves using an endoscope to visualize the disc removal. The discectomy is performed through a posterolateral approach using specially developed instruments. The advantage of percutaneous endoscopic discectomy is that the disc is approached posterolaterally through the triangle of Kambin without the need for bone or facet resection thus preserving spinal stability. The procedure is day care and is done under local anaesthesia. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pain management specialist.
