Great to know you are such a enthusiatic & good athlete. If you have shooting pain from your back going to your legs it could be spine related issue leading to nerve compression. You may need specific medications and interventions for it. In addition to good physical therapy in form of spine strengthening exercises. Consult a pain specialist or spine surgeon. Its better to go for treatment at early stage especially since your an athlete.

Back Pain

Ayurveda, Delhi
Back Pain

पीठ के निचले भाग में दर्द एक बहुत आम समस्या है. अलग-अलग व्यक्तियों में ये विभिन्न प्रकार से पाया जाता है. इसमें प्रभावित क्षेत्र में अकड़न, जलन या फिर टाँगों और और नितंब के क्षेत्र की तरफ बहुत तीक्ष्ण रूप का दर्द भी हो सकता है. बहुत से लोगों में इस दर्द की वजह से उनके दैनिक कार्य में बाधा उत्पन्न हो जाती है. अनेक कार्यों को करने में उसे रूचि नही रहती और जीवन के अनेक कार्यों में से प्रसन्नता चली जाती है. Back-ache home remedies ayurved hindi
वैसे तो यह समस्या अधिक तौर से 45-64 वर्षा के महुष्यों में पाई जाती है परंतु अब बढ़े हुए तनाव और अनियमित जीवनचर्या की वजह से जवान लोगों में भी यह समस्या उत्पन्न हो जाती है. मज़े की बात यह है जिन्हें यह समस्या शुरू होती है, ज़्यादातर लोगों में 1.5 से 3 महीने में स्वतः ही ठीक हो जाती है. परंतु गत 5 प्रतिशत लोग ऐसे भी हैं जिनमें यह समस्या नसों के प्रभावित हो जाने के कारण बनी रहती है.

मुख्यतः यह समस्या रीढ़ की हड्डी को झुकाकर बैठने अथवा ग़लत तरीके से उठने बैठने से होती है. यदि व्यक्ति कमर सीधी करके बैठे तो उसे मांसपेशियों, हड्डियों और आंतरिक अंगों पर दबाव भी नही पड़ता और व्यक्ति स्वस्थ भी रहता है.
यह समस्या हड्डियों की कमज़ोरी की परिचायक भी हो सकती है.
लिगमेंट में मोच अथवा इसके ग़लत रूप से मूड़ जाने के कारण भी यह समस्या उत्पन्न हो सकती है.
स्त्रीयो में फिबरोमयलगिया की समस्या से या फिर एस्टरोगेन की कमी से भी यह तकलीफ़ हो जाती है.
गर्भाशय में ट्यूमर या रसोली से भी कटी में दर्द हो सकता है.
बिल्कुल भी व्यायाम ना करने से अथवा ग़लत तरीके से योगाभ्यास अथवा व्यायाम करने से भी पीठ में दर्द उत्पन्न हो जातआ है.
बहुत कम या बहुत अधिक वज़न के शरीर में भी यह समस्या उत्पन्न होती है.

इस स्थिति में बहुत कुशल योगाचार्य से एवं उनके निरीक्षण में ही कुछ ख़ास प्रकार के आसनों का अभ्यास करना चाहिए. बैक बेंडिंग (back-bending) के आसन जैसे भुजंगासन, शलभासन, मकरासन, गरुड़ासन, मार्जरि का अभ्यास लाभदायक है.
आसन करते समय प्रभावित क्षेत्र में ध्यान अवश्य दें और यह समझना चाहिए की प्रभावित क्षेत्र में प्राण उर्जा का संचार हो रहा है. इस प्रकार धारणा करने से दोगुना लाभ मिलता है.
वीरासन में बैठने का अभ्यास भी अत्यंत हितकारी है. इससे कमर की मांसपेशियाँ मजबूत हो जाती ही और कमर सीधी रखने का अभ्यास बनता है. स्वयं को तनाव रहित करना सबसे अधिक महत्वपूर्ण है.
कटीग्राहम का आयुर्वेदिक उपचार (ayurvedic treatment of back-ache)

इस समस्या के निवारण के लिए वैसे तो आंतरिक और बाहिय दोनो हो उपचार किए जाते हैं.

अष्ठवर्ग औषधि का सेवन इस समस्या में किया जाता है,
साथ ही साथ अभ्यंग और बस्ती करना इसमें बहुत लाभदायक है. नियमित रूप से विरेचन भी करना चाहिए.


कमर दर्द में उपयोगी घरेलू नुस्खे 

नाश्ते में अखरोट और अलसी का 1-1 चम्मच दूध के साथ सेवन कीजिए.
इससे हड्डियाँ मजबूत होती हैं. सर्दियों में तिल का एक चम्मच खा सकते हैं.
रात्रि को 60 ग्राम गेहूँ भिगो कर रखें. प्रातः काल इसमें 2 चम्मच धनिया और 2 चम्मच खसखस पाउडर मिलाइए. इसका पेस्ट बनाएँ और इसी 250 मिलीलीटर दूध में मिलकर 15-20 मिनट पकाएँ. हल्का गर्म होने पर इसका सेवन कर लीजिए.
वात को बढ़ाने वाले भोजन का त्याग करें. महनारायण तेल से प्रभावित क्षेत्र में हल्की मालिश रोज़ रात्रि के समय करें.
आप लहसुन का तेल बनाकर भी उसका प्रयोग कर सकते हैं. 50 मिलीलीटर नारियल या तिल के तेल में 8-10 लौंग लहसुन के डालें. अब इन्हें हल्का जल जाने तक भूने. इस तेल अब प्रभावित क्षेत्र में हल्की मालिश करे

Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day.

My mother is suffering with leg pains, she is at 50. Could you please let me know how to overcome?

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do stretching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you don't get relief see a physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to have a persistent back pain as a health issue. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards
