If you have experienced low back pain, you are not alone. Approximately one quarter of population report experiencing low back pain within the past 3 months at any given time. Low back pain often occurs due to overuse, strain or injury. This includes too much bending, twisting, lifting, and even too much sitting.
How Can You Prevent Low Back Pain?
Keep your back, stomach, and leg muscles strong and flexible
Keep your body in alignment, so it can be more efficient when you move
Don’t slouch-keep good posture
Use good body positioning at work, home, or during leisure activities
When lifting, keep the load close to your body
Ask for help or use an assistive device to lift heavy objects
Maintain a regular physical fitness regimen, staying active can help to prevent injuries
What to Do When You Have Low Back Pain
In most cases, low back pain is mild and will disappear on its own. However, for some people, back pain can return or persist, leading to a decrease in quality of life or even disability.
Stay active and do as much of your normal routine as possible when you have low back pain. Bed rest for longer than a day can slow down your recovery. If your pain lasts more than a few days or gets worse, then you should schedule an appointment to see your physical therapist.
See a health care professional immediately if you experience the following symptoms:
Loss of bowel or bladder control
Numbness in the groin or inner thigh
Pain that does not change with rest
How a Physiotherapist Can Help
Not all low back pain is the same and your treatment should be tailored to suit your specific condition. You should expect the following from a physiotherapist:
Individualized assessment: Your physiotherapist will ask you a number of questions about your specific condition and will thoroughly examine you for problems with posture, flexibility, strength, joint mobility, and movement. Attention will be given to how you use your body at work, home, during sports, and at leisure.
Individualized treatment plan: Once your assessment is complete your physical therapist will develop a plan designed for your specific type of back problem. This may consist of:
Treatment to decrease pain and restore mobility by electrotherapy modalities
Manual therapy techniques, including spinal manipulation, to improve mobility of joints and soft tissues.
Specific strengthening and/or flexibility exercises
Education about care of your back and training for proper lifting, bending, sitting, sleeping, and doing chores both at work and in the home.
I am 23 years old guy suffering from back pain from the last 1.5 years. I do not know how it happened but it may be due to wrong workout method, after which I stopped going to gym. I visited an orthopaedic doctor after the pain started. He recommended some physiotherapist exercises and some painkillers and multivitamins to me. However I never completed the physiotherapy for more than 10-12 days. Now after 1.5 years I still have back pain? What should I do?
It takes a heavy toll on its working populace.
About 70 to 80 per cent of the working population in a city could possibly suffer from some lifestyle-related diseases.
Prolonged incorrect posture in the work environment coupled with high stress, unnatural sleep pattern and improper diet are sure-fire silent killers, and according to other statistics based on a market research, about 70 per cent of the afflicted wouldn’t even know that they suffer from a lifestyle-related disease. Most would opt for a short-term home remedy or hop across to the neighboring spa for a massage or turn to alternate medicine to find relief. Some would just pop a pain-killer as a short term symptomatic cure. None, if few of them would realize that the trouble lies much beneath.
Long and tedious hours of work take a toll on the physical state of a person leading to the by now very-common problems of the neck and lower backaches. Other lifestyle-related diseases like obesity also add to the overall problem.
Physiotherapy treatment helps retrain the body muscles and create a positive change in body awareness and movement behavior, which helps overcome exhaustive hurdles in daily routine.
Not only is the problem of overcoming pain and further deterioration dealt with physiotherapy but also it helps to increase efficiency at work and saves companies the grief of medical coverage, employee ineffectiveness and chronic absence from work due to recurring work-aggravated conditions.
It really doesn’t matter which job you are in, but what matters is the way it's being done. Shorter working hours allows the body to adapt accordingly, as there is enough time for rest, recreation and proper nutrition. Now, with ready-to-eat fast food and long hours of persistent or faulty posture coupled with stress, we are left as a mere shadow of the potential we really could be. Continued fatigue results in further prolonged faulty posture causing pain and ensuing in a further distortion of posture. Aggravated pain results in a chronic, exhaustive, viscous cycle that completely saps the body, requiring complete bed rest and intensive physiotherapy treatment.
Computer and it workers have a tendency to develop neck pains, carpel tunnel syndrome, etc. Due to the long hours spent before a computer in a non-ergonomic ambience. Furthermore, driving for long distances in congested traffic and particularly over potholed bad roads either as part of a job, or even at the beginning or end of the day is grueling.
Usually, when a person is tired they slouch and tilt their body to one side. This usually results in a habitually awkward position which can lead to low backache, lumbago and sciatica. These are just a few of the common lesser evils that plague the city population.
We may not be able to cut down on the hours of work or travel, but we can rectify the way we do things.
Physical therapy helps increase awareness of correct body posture as well as train related body muscles and help in maintaining a better posture.
