Lumbago or Lower back pain is a condition that is characterized by mild to serious pain or uneasiness in the lower back region. Lower back pain is more prevalent among the youth whose work includes physical exertion or sitting for long hours and is also common in individuals belonging to the 'retirement age' because of their sedentary lifestyles. The pain might be acute (sudden and extreme) or chronic if it has been endured over a span of three months.
The most common causes of lower back pain are:
- Overuse of the muscles and includes strains or sprains of soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments and vertebral compression fractures.
- Pressure on the roots of nerves due to conditions such as spinal canal stenosis (narrowing down of the spaces within the spine) or herniated disc (a condition of the rubbery disc present between the spine bones (vertebrae)).
- Osteoarthritis is a condition wherein the shock absorbers, found in the joints, progressively break down.
When it affects the spine, the condition causes back pain by stiffening the spinal joints. Symptoms of Lumbago (Low back pain) include:
- Stiff back
- Numbness in the legs
- Loss of weight
- Difficulty in urinating
- Sciatica, which is the pain running down the lower back to hips, legs and thighs. This occurs due to a compression by an intervertebral disc in the back, which leads to a pinched nerve.
How to diagnose lower back pain or a slip disc?
Some methods that can be utilized for diagnosing back include Xray, CT Scans, Myelogram and MRI scans.

Exercises along with correction of bad posture for relieving back pain are a common component of any treatment plan. Factors such as type and severity of the pain as well as the patient?s history can help in determining the type of treatment that can be administered. In most cases, the recovery time is usually six weeks without surgery. Typical treatment of back pain includes use of muscle relaxants, painkillers and physiotherapy. Surgery is suggested in severe cases. Some other treatments are discussed below:
- Rest: A period of rest and inactivity would help the injured tissues to recuperate and relieve back pain. However, extended periods of rest lead to weakening of muscles and hence might prolong the existing back pain.
- Heat and ice packs: Both heat and ice therapies are used according to the patient's preference to reduce inflammation.
- Medications: A large variety of prescription and over-the-counter medicines are available. Some reduce back pain caused by inflammation and others prevent the pain signals from travelling to the brain. Examples would include acetaminophen, celecoxib and diclofenac.

Facial paralysis is a loss of facial movement because of nerve damage. Your facial muscles may seem to hang or may become distinctly weak. It can happen on one or both sides of the face. Usual reasons for facial paralysis include:
Facial paralysis can increase all of a sudden or happen slowly over a span of months (mostly if one has a head or neck tumor). Based upon the cause, the loss of movement may keep going for a short or a long period of time. However, physiotherapy can prove to be very beneficial. Here is how:
1. Electrical stimulation: A few specialists suggest utilizing electrical stimulation and biofeedback as technique for physiotherapy for facial paralysis, yet different specialists believe that it does help in recovery. Talk with your specialist or advisor about whether electrical stimulation is ideal for you. Electrical stimulation uses little amounts of electricity to relieve the muscles in your face. This causes your muscles to jerk as though electrical signals from your brain reacted to them. During this time, your face is most incapacitated, which might be the main cause for you to enact these facial muscles.
2. Manual massage: Face rub can be performed in conjunction with other treatment choices. It is possible to enhance mental relief. Massage methods on the face include:
- Finger or thumb massage
3. Kabat rehabilitation: Kabat recovery is a sort of engine control restoration procedure. During Kabat, specialists increase the compression of the weakened muscle by applying a global stretch and then massaging the solid segment. They encourage movement by verbal info and manual contact. While performing Kabat, there are namely three phases - the upper (temple and eyes), intermediate (nose), and lower (mouth). Before Kabat, ice compression needs to be performed to the particular regions, with a specific end goal to build its contractile power.
4. Icing: Ice helps in decreasing the aggravation surrounding the facial nerve, which might be in charge of the loss of nerve movement or conduction leading to facial paralysis. You can either use an ice pack or any cold compressor.
5. Facial exercises: These include doing essential activities with the distinctive muscle surrounding your face. In case you consult a specialist or physical advisor for your facial paralysis, he or she will suggest particular exercises for your level and stage of paralysis. If not, have a go at flexing the different muscles in your face through and through. Frown, raise your eyebrows, gradually flicker your eyes, and proceed down to your jaw.

There is a general belief that homeopathy is a line of medicine that takes a holistic look at the human body and not in a localized manner. Every condition is diagnosed based on its history and the underlying cause and the other parts of the body the disease or disorder may be connected to. The case of joint pains and arthritis is no exception. If you feel pain in your joints and approach a homeopathic practitioner, the process will be to make a diagnosis in this way only.
It’s Not Always About Medicines
There is this misconception that homeopathy is all about medicines and concoctions that are prescribed for treatment of diseases. It is usually more than that. As mentioned above, the practitioner will consider several aspects. These will include the style or the way the pain is experienced by the patient. For example, a person who feels pain in the knee joints may feel severe pain when waking up in the morning, but the pain will reduce in intensity and relief will be experienced as he or she moves around. This may repeat alternately while resting and when being active. This kind of pain will be treated with a different remedy than the direct localized application of a gel or other preparations. Alternately, when the pain shoots up as the person moves, the treatment needs to be of a different kind.
A Large Volume of Research is Undertaken
Practitioners of homeopathy themselves and others who are keen to know if it is really that effective as a form of medicine undertake a lot of research on the way homeopathy approaches its methods of treatment. In these experiments, the researchers from 2 groups with similar conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and offer them treatment, one following homeopathy and the other a different method. And the results have always proven that homeopathy has evolved better ways to address the condition and offer longer lasting remedies.
Lifestyle Choices Reviewed and Corrected
Another additional form of the remedy suggested within homeopathy for the treatment of joint pains and arthritis or any other form for that matter relates to the changes being suggested in the lifestyle of the patients.
These are besides the medicines prescribed for the remedy and will cover the food intake; things that should be avoided or taken in larger amounts, dropping certain habits and inculcating others and so on. Consumption of alcohol, for instance, is generally discouraged because it interferes with the internal medicine being taken. This is true for most allopathic drugs also, but it is not given the same emphasis there as it is done in homeopathy.
There are other similar suggestions made during the treatment of joint pains through the homeopathic route which comprises medicines and counselling. The medicines will also have the external components and the internal ones. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
