When there is a compression in the root of the spinal nerve, one experiences pain in hips, back or leg. This condition is called sciatica. This condition ranges from moderate to acute and requires a lot of care to be taken. While there are medicines and exercises in place to cure sciatica, garlic milk is also known to be a good remedy for this health condition.
You can drink this in cooked form or raw. The odor is strong, but it does also show satisfactory results so you might want to give it a try.
Crush a few cloves of garlic and immediately mix in about 200 ml of raw milk. Drink it immediately. Alternatively, you can also mix the garlic in boiled milk and drink. You will notice change in a few days only.

I am suffering from leg pain since many days. I can not able to walk at all like before and all people are laughing at me. So please give a solution to my problem.
I have pain at the base of my tail bone when I sit for long. Sometimes there's itching between buttocks and there's a rash which takes 2-3 days to heal with antiseptic cream. There is also a small dip at the top of my buttocks. Is it pilonidal sinus or something else as there is no cyst formation .and no hair on that part. Also the pain is not at the surface but comes from deep within and it's more like a pain in the bone. I do not have problem standing or while sitting in a chair .the pain is only there when am sitting cross legged on the floor or some other surface where the whole pressure is on my bottom. Kindly suggest the reason of my pain and what should I do for it.
I have pimple problem on my BACK. Lower and upper BACK! Pimples come and go. Again and again from the past 5 years. Dark spots are still there. They are vanishing very slowly. What to do?
Spinal fusion surgery is also known as spondylodesis or spondylosyndesis. It is a surgical procedure in which two or more vertebrae are permanently joined into one solid bone with no space between them. The procedure aims at preventing the movement between two bones and prevents back pain. It can be performed at any level in the spine (cervical, thoracic, or lumbar).
- Degenerative disc disease
- Lumbar spondylolisthesis ( a condition where one vertebra slips onto the vertebra below it causing severe pain)
- Unstable spinal column
- Severe arthritis Infections
- Spinal stenosis
- Scoliosis (curvature of the spine)
- Kyphosis (abnormal rounding of the upper spine)
When Does An Individual Need This Surgery?
Spinal fusion surgery is required if medicines, physical therapy, and other treatments (like steroid injections) do not relieve the back pain.
Types of Spinal Fusion
- Anterior spinal fusion
- Posterior spinal fusion
- Vertebral interbody fusion
Preparation for Spinal Fusion Surgery
- Preoperative preparation
- Preoperatively, 8-hour fasting is required. All the routine investigations, including blood tests, and X- rays are done.
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. A bone graft (ie, a synthetic bone or a small piece of the patient’s pelvic bone) is prepared to fuse the two vertebrae. Depending on the location of fusion, the graft is placed accordingly between the affected vertebras to join them. Once the graft is put in place; plates, screws, and rods are used to keep the spine from moving. This maneuver is called internal fixation. It provides stability and helps the spine to heal faster with a higher rate of success.
Postoperatively, the patient may need to wear a brace to keep the spine in proper alignment. Fusing may take up to 6 weeks or longer, after which normal activities can be resumed. Physical rehabilitation is required to strengthen the back and learn ways to move safely. Complete recovery takes about 3-6 months.
- Infections causing inflammation of the affected parts
- Poor healing causing pain
- Pain at the site of the fused area, especially nerve pain
- Heart attack or stroke during a spinal surgery
- Reactions to medications or anesthesia
- Respiratory problems
- Damage to a spinal nerve leading to weakness, pain, bowel, or bladder problems
- Blood clots in the legs that can be life-threatening if they travel to the lungs
- Blood loss
- Pseudoarthrosis (nonunion between fused bone segments)
Warning Signs of Infection
- Swelling, redness, or discharge from the operated site
- Fever above 100 0F
- Shaking chills
- Increased pain
Safe and faster recovery from spinal surgery is suggested through physical therapy.
