Physiotherapy is often tried as a first solution to a persistent lower back pain. Most doctors advise a patient of back pain for a four-week session as a conservative approach to pursuing aggressive treatment options such as surgery. The motive behind physiotherapy is to reduce inflammation, pain and increased function of the back. Physiotherapy also teaches a patient certain good practices in order to negate the possibility of getting the pain back.
Two Forms of Physiotherapy-
Passive Therapy: This is a form of physiotherapy that includes an application of ice packs, electrical stimulation and heat application. These are the very first steps taken, before moving to routine physical therapy that involves following an exercise schedule, breathing technique etc.
Active Therapy: Active physiotherapy includes undertaking of specific exercise schedule and certain stretching activities. The exact schedule is decided by the physiotherapist, depending on the location and duration of pain.
Benefits of Exercising-
The stability of the lower back is greatly dependent on the back musculature and abdominal spine. The muscle of the abdomen stabilizes the lumbar spine since they can generate pressure through the spine. Simply put the discs and the spine are all circled by muscles. It is necessary for these muscles to retain the strength in order to exert less pressure on the joints and the discs. There are ample medical literature stating the fact that active physiotherapy can make the surrounding muscle of discs strong. What’s more, a good physical exercise schedule will negate the likelihood of future spine related pain.
Some of the most common exercises include-
Stretching: An active exercise schedule comprises adequate stretching to ensure gradual relief of conditions such as spasms and atrophy. These are caused due to certain conditions including inappropriate posture, nerve irritation, accidents related to the spine etc. Certain stretching involving the legs, back muscles, hips and abdominal muscle should be practiced. Stretching should be slow and gentle without any bouncing.
Stabilization Exercise: Dynamic exercise includes the involvement of many exercises such as the usage of balancing machine and exercise balls in order to improve the balance of the lower back. They ensure the strengthening of the secondary muscles and improve the range of motion. The ultimate motive of stabilization exercise is to support the spine.
Strengthening Exercise: There are a set of dedicated exercises often recommended by physiotherapists. The core motive is to ensure the strengthening of lower back and abdominal muscle. Some exercises include leg raise, sit-ups, crunches etc. Lower back exercise could be as simple as lying straight on the ground and raising the chest slowly towards the air and getting back to the same position. Good morning exercises also play a key role in strengthening the lower back muscles. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.
Ayurveda is a very old system of medicine, which originated in India. Using herbs found in nature to cure various illnesses, knee pain can also be permanently cured with this method indigenous to India. It reduces knee pain caused by various illnesses including arthritis, inflammation of the cartilage and wearing of the patella among others.
Here are some common Ayurvedic remedies, which help reduce knee pain:

- Bishop's weed: The medical name for Bishop's weed is Trachyspermum Ammi. The oil extracted from this herb is usually applied to the knees to reduce the intensity of such knee pains.
- Celery: The medical name for celery is Apium Graveolens. Celery is not only an effective treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and associated pains in the knees, but it is also helpful in treating gout. It is usually agreed upon that this particular treatment is usually long lasting because of its alkaline nature.
- Dandelion: Dandelion's biological name is Taraxacum Officinale. It is rich in magnesium and is crucial for the correct mineralization of the bones. This mineralization allows the bones to become stronger and also prevents knee pain.
- Garlic: The medical name for garlic is allium sativum. Five to six cloves eaten everyday has proved to reduce knee pains.
- Ginger: Ginger is biologically called Zingiber Officinale. These can be easily included in your diet and go a long way in curbing knee pain.

NSTRUCTIONS FOR PEOPLE WITH ACUTE LOW BACK PAIN
- The simple rule is that if bending forward has been the cause of over stretching, bending backward should rectify this problem and reduce any resultant distortion. You must restore the lordosis slowly and with caution, never quickly or with jerky movements. You must allow some time for the distorted joint to regain its normal shape and position: a sudden or violent movement may retard this process, increase the strain in and around the affected joint, and thus result in an increase of low back pain .
- Remember, when commencing the exercises, some increase of mid line low back pain can be expected. Some exercises will only be effective when you actually move into the pain while exercising. You should feel some pain when doing these exercises, but you should never have a lasting increase in pain which remains present the following day.When in acute pain, you must, apart from exercising, make certain adjustments in your daily activities. These adjustments forma very important aspect of self-treatment. If you do not follow the instructions given below, you will unnecessarily delay the healing process. This is entirely your responsibility.Maintain your lumbar lordosis at all times.
- Slouched sitting and bending forward as in touching the toes will only increase the pressure in the joints, stretch and weaken the supporting structures,and lead to further damage in the low back. If you slouch you will have discomfort and pain.
Good posture is the key to spinal comfort. Sit as little as possible, and then for short periods only.
- If you must sit, choose a firm, high chair with a straight back, make sure that you have an adequate lordosis, and use a lumbar roll to support the low back. Avoid sitting on a low, soft couch with the legs straight out in front as in sitting up in bed or in the bath; both these situations force you to lose the lordosis. When getting up from the sitting position, you should attempt to maintain the lordosis: move to the front of the seat, stand up by straightening the legs and avoid bending forward at the waist.
- Drive the car as little as possible; it is better to be a passenger than to drive yourself. If you must drive, your seat should be far enough back from the steering wheel to allow you to drive with your arms relatively straight.
- With the arms straight, your upper body is held back and you are prevented from slouching; this allows full benefit to be obtained from the lumbar roll, which should always be used when driving. Avoid activities which require bending forward or stooping. Many activities can be modified adequately to enable maintenance of the lordosis. It is possible to maintain the correct posture when vacuuming in the standing position; it is also possible to maintain a correct lordosis by going down on all fours when gardening, making beds, etc.
- If you have acute low back pain, you should not lift at all. If you must lift, you should avoid objects that are awkward to handle or heavier than 30 pounds (15 kg). At all times you must use the correct lifting technique.
- If you are uncomfortable at night, you may benefit from a supportive roll around your waist. For most people, it is recommended that the mattress should not be too hard but well supported by a firm base.
- If your bed sags, slats or a sheet of plywood between mattress and base will straighten it, or else you can have the mattress placed on the floor.When getting up from lying, you should keep your back in lordosis: tum on one side, draw both knees up, drop the feet over the edge of the bed, raise yourself to the sitting position by pushing your upper body up with your hands, and avoid bending forward at the waist. Stand up from sitting as described before.
- Avoid coughing and sneezing while you are sitting or bending forward. You should stand and bend backward if you are forced to cough or sneeze.Avoid those positions and movements which initially caused your problems. You must allow some time for healing to take place.
