Sitting For Long Period Is Killing Your Back!

Sitting For Long Period Is Killing Your Back!

Gone are the days when back pain affected a person only in their old age. Nowadays, almost every second person suffers from some kind of a backache. From sedentary lifestyle to certain diseases and ailments, the back pain can result from the amalgamation of various factors, making the condition painful (mild to chronic) and uncomfortable to the hilt. In this article, we will mainly stress upon the factors responsible for a back pain.

Underlying factors that often triggers a back pain

More than often, prolonged and chronic back pain interferes with the daily activities of a person, thereby jeopardizing their lives. For a proper treatment and management, one should first identify the factors responsible for the back pain. Some of the common and critical triggers include

Medical conditions:

  • SciaticaSciatica is a neurological disorder whereby an inflammation or injury of the sciatic nerve (considered the largest nerve in the body) triggers numbness and a shooting pain that moves downwards, often from the lower back (the lumbar region) through the buttocks and hips into the back of one leg. Sometimes, a person may experience a pain down both the legs.
  • Osteoarthritis of the spine: This is a painful degenerative disorder of the spine that mainly affects the neck and the lower back. Here, the cartilage of the discs and joints (lower back and neck) are damaged causing pain and weakness. In some people, the pain is so severe that it limits their motion to a great extent.
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis: Stenosis of the lumbar spine results in severe back pain, especially in the lower half (lumbar area), triggered by narrowing down of the spinal canal.
  • Osteoporosis of the spine: This is a bone disorder where the bones become so porous, thin and weak that they start to crack and break (including those of the spine), a condition known as vertebral compression fractures. These fractures are a common cause of weakness and back pain.
  • Shingles: This is a viral infection (varicella-zoster virus) characterized by the appearance of a rash which is often painful. Shingles can occur in any part of the body including the spine. The viral infection in the spine is what triggers the back pain.
  • Spinal Cancer, muscle spasm or ligament tear and strain on the back can give rise to back pain.
  • Back pain can also be an outcome of rupture or disorder of the discs that act as a defensive shield between the spinal vertebrae.

Lifestyle practices:

  1. Leading a sedentary life can be dangerous, often causing back pain.
  2. People who are overweight or obese (especially the lower half) are known to suffer from a back pain.
  3. In many people, rigorous exercise and physical activities can be a major contributing factor, triggering a back pain.
  4. Women who wear high heels are more susceptible to developing a back pain.
  5. In addition to these, bad posture, stress, a poor quality mattress can equally contribute to back pain.
  6. Do not neglect the condition if the pain persists for more than a week. Get medical assistance to avoid further deterioration and complication.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 60 years old, male. I was suffering from Lumbar Disc Prolapse L4-L5, and L5-S1 from 1981 when I was 23 years old. I lifted 2 banana trees one after the other on my shoulder along with one other person during my brother's marriage, while shifting the trees from the farm to the bullock cart. We had to walk around 100 metres to reach the cart. I started realizing pain on my left leg and numbness after a month. I used to lie flat on the floor and cry in pain. I was a student then. I went to the Government Hospital and the doctors at the Ortho department took a series of x-rays, put me on pain killers, and later referred me to Neuro department. The doctors there suggested me to undergo a test - injecting a die at the region and subsequent x-ray or scan, they also spoke within themselves that I am too young to undergo such tests. One doctor privately advised me to live with the pain for sometime. I took his advise and lived with the pain. Walking with good shoes helped me overcome the pain to a certain extent. I also consulted the Chief Neurologist Dr. N.B. Pranesh in Coimbatore. He also advised me against surgery and prescribed me medicines. By God's will, I continued my life till 2012 and in the year 2013, I got operated - underwent Microdisectomy for L4-L5 and L5-S1 at M/s. Ganga Hospitals, Coimbatore. Dr. Ajoy Shetty performed the surgery. Subsequently, I had pain and consulted the doctors at Ganga Hospital. They gave me a steroid injection in the Lumbar region. I have lived up to this date with pain, and now my pain is worse, I have instability, pain in my back (hip) and it is more when I get up from bed. I really don't know what to do and how to go about and where to go. Please advise.

Difficult one to manage. Your pain could be because of instability or further disc bulge. If pain worsening would suggest a repeat MRI and consult an orthopaedic surgeon.

For 160 cm height 54 kg weight is good. You don't need to go for weight loss regime. But the back pain and legs pain you are referring, could be due to nerve compression in lower spine region. You should get it examined by orthopaedic doctor or physiotherapist as early as possible to avoid any further inconvenience. Apply heating around the painful region of you back after that you can apply volini or omni gel. Do some lower back muscle strengthening exercises. Avoid forward bending, lifting weights. Sit straight and with support.

My father is 51 years old. He feels pain in his left knee. He cannot bend that knee for a long period of time. He tried many things for that, even taken many medication too, but nothing has helped his case. While walking in a slope or in stairs the knee becomes more and more painful, and during this time of the year the situation becomes even worse. Any suggestions how to cure that thing.

You father is probably suffering from knee arthritis. Treatment revolves mainly around physiotherapy, ice pack application and medications. Intrarticular injections offer great relief. Patient should avoid squatting and cross legged sitting..

1) maintain a regular sleep routine go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help relaxed and de-stressed.

Can Thermotherapy Help Manage Achilles Tendon?

Can Thermotherapy Help Manage Achilles Tendon?

Achilles Tendon pain is an orthopedic condition that can originate from tears and ruptures to the AchillesTendon, which is known as one of the strongest and also the longest tendon in the human body. It is a band of tissues that decides the quality of your movements and motions to a great extent, as it connects the heel with the calf. Therefore, any injury to this tendon can decrease the strength and support to the muscles and create a painful situation. So how can you deal with this pain? Read on to know more.

  • Rice Therapy: Rice is a commonly used term by orthopedic specialist. It refers to Rest, Ice, Compression with a bandage, and finally Elevation. The patient must take lots of rest as well as use ice packs to deal with the injury and acute pain. Finally, the area must be compressed with a bandage and kept elevated on cushions.
  • Surgery: For very severe cases, the orthopedic specialist can recommend surgery as well. This kind of surgery aims at reattaching the displaced or ruptured tendon which may have reached such a fate through a sports or any other kind of injury. The doctor may also place your leg in a cast for a few weeks to keep it at complete rest. 
  • Pain Medication: The doctor can also prescribe pain relievers that contain Ibuprofen as well as acetaminophen or even naproxen. These medicines should be taken in moderation as per the doctor's prescription. Usually, this kind of medication is taken only when unbearable pain is experienced by the patient.
  • Thermotherapy or Heat Treatment: The use of heat for chronic pain or even pain that has been ailing for over 48 hours is known as thermotherapy. This therapy uses heating pads and hot water bottles to help relieve the pain. One must be careful while applying anything hot to the site of the injury. Use a towel to wrap the hot water bottle or heating pad so that there is no scalding or leaking on to the skin.
  • Footwear: It is important to prevent continuous injury and pain to the already injured Achilles tendon. To do this, you must wear supportive and comfortable footwear that has heel lifts and other customized orthotics built into the shoes. 

Taking care of Achilles Tendon pain is a matter of taking various precautions and supportive actions that lead to better healing. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an orthopedist.
