Try few things for your back pain: - Apply Ice and Heat Heating pads and cold packs can comfort tender trunks. Most doctors recommend using ice for the first 48 hours after an injury -- particularly if there is swelling — and then switching to heat. You can use whichever you find comforting as long as your skin is protected. - Limit Bed Rest Studies show that people with short-term low-back pain who rest feel more pain and have a harder time with daily tasks than those who stay active. -Keep Exercising Activity is often the best medicine for back pain. Simple exercises like walking can be very helpful. But remember to move in moderation, Stay away from strenuous activities like gardening and avoid whatever motion caused the pain in the first place. -Maintain Good Posture Most people have poor posture when going about their daily activities, putting unnecessary strain on their backs. -Strengthen Your Core Most people with chronic back pain would benefit from stronger abdominal muscles. If the abdominals are weak, other areas must pick up the slack. When we strengthen the abdominals, it often reduces the strain on the lower back. - Improve Flexibility Too much tension and tightness can cause back pain. By increasing flexibility you need to put an equal load throughout the body from the feet all the way up to the head. -Sleep the Right Way The amount of rest you get is important, and so is the position you get it in. Sleeping in a bad position or on a mattress without support can cause back pain. Back sleepers should put pillows under their knees. Side sleepers should place pillows between their knees to keep their spine in a neutral position. Stomach sleeping causes the neck and head to twist and can put undue stress on the back. -Use Relaxation Techniques Research shows that practices such as meditation, deep breathing and yoga, which help put the mind at rest, can do wonders for the back. -See a Specialist Developing an individualized exercise plan is essential to managing chronic back pain. Some patients need more core strengthening while others benefit mainly from stretching and improving flexibility. Please consult a Orthopedic Physiotherapist for the right exercise plan. Best wishes.

I am 30 and I have a back pain, if I seat for about 30 minutes without anything to support back. Then again I have a pain in my lower end of my back, almost near my hip if I seat on any hard surface. Please help me.

This is a pure case sacroiliac inflammation which is caused due to long sitting either on a soft surface or hard surface which can be aggravated if there is muscular weakness in lower back. You need to do heating in lower back and then do some stretches for the same like bringing your knee to chest which should help you relieve some stress. Then perform some extension exercises which can help you increase strength in your back. Till your back is not strengthen enough try not to sit on a harder surface. Try not placing your wallet on the back packet as it will definitely increase the symptoms.

I usually play football on most weekdays and last Thursday on wards I developed a strain on my left calf. Yesterday in a match, mid way, I felt a strong pain on my calf, after which I can barely stand or walk. Have kept ice and hot water. Is it serious or do I rest and hope it will get healed?

Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do streching 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 dont get relief consult physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

Hi lybrate-user, it depends on the severity of the pain. Initial symptoms include a dull pain in the low back, followed by pain in the back of the thighs along with a tingling/numbness in certain cases. The most effective way to reduce pain on sitting is by correcting your posture. Make sure you do not slouch and your lower back should remain in contact with the chair. Latest research suggests that an angle of 135 degrees is perfect to maintain proper weight bearing on the lower back.

You are suffering with diabetic ulcer. It is due to poor supply of blood to the part. Stop smoking ,control tightly the blood sugar. Proper dressing by specialist ,off-loading means rest to part and continued long effort is required. Be sincere otherwise you may get mishappening.

Hi lybrate user, you mentioned having protrusion of intervertebral disc l3-4, it is important to understand the disease & prognosis first. Having protrusion is not a normal phenomenon, it occurs due to weakness of posterior part of disc (mainly annulus fibrosus, causing central gelly part nucleus to leak/ protrude backward) either due to trauma or degeneration of body due to age or lifestyle. Most of patients get relief from pain in 2-3 weeks time with conservative management (rest, medication, physio), but the main problem of disc bulge never gets healed unless some intervention is done inside. Your nucleus does not go back, neither your weak/ broken fibre of annulus gets repaired on its own. Your pain might have gone or reduced but let me assure you, your disc protrusion will remain there, till something is done (take mri after 6 months or 1 year & you will find protrusion still there),& if nothing is done you will be always prone to develop extrusion or further foraminal / canal stenosis. If you play sports make sure you take opinion from either orthopedician/ interventional pain specialist who can assess how likely your protrusion can aggravate depending upon current mri. We can not say with 100% surety batting, bowling or fielding will cause further aggravation, even sudden forward bending can aggravate it & even dive during cricket fielding might not cause aggravation. Advise would be take opinion on which activity can be easily done & which activity needs precaution. Try building back muscles, which will nit only protect spine but also distribute load from disc to other parts, mainly muscles. Hope it helps.

Mild or grade 1 fractures can be treated with rest, medication and braces. Severe fractures will need mri evaluation. Majority of these fractures are a result of osteoporosis which needs to be aggressively treated. Some patients will benefit from procedures such as kyphoplasty.

Joint Replacement Surgery - When Should You Go for it

Joint Replacement Surgery - When Should You Go for  it

Joint Replacement Surgery is a procedure where the damaged surface of the advanced arthritic joints are removed and replaced with artificial joints, such as metallic, plastic and ceramic joints.
These surfaces closely replicate the original anatomy.

When do you need a knee replacement?
When you suffer from severe pain or deformity in the joint (knee in this case), the pain or stiffness and deformity makes it difficult to perform simple tasks. Severe grade IV osteoarthritic knees of  people over 50 years when have pain, swelling and deformity fail to respond to medicines, physiotherapy, injections and rest.

Aim of the surgery

  1. Correct the deformity: Relieve the pain and give near full movements almost immediately after the procedure. Details including techniques and safety, it is a safe, rewarding surgery with a success rate of as high as 99.5% when done by an able and experienced professional.
  2. Anaesthesia: Usually it is the spinal cord epidural where one is rendered numb for 3 to 4 hours waist down. Sometimes a general anaesthesia is given. A 4 to 5 inches cut is made in front of the knee and all the damaged cartilages, bones, loose bodies are removed from the lower end of the thigh, upper end of the tibia (usually of few millimetres) and the surface re-crafted to match the size and shape of the artificial joint (it is usually imported). They are fixed with bone cement. The ligaments and muscles are reattached and the parts closed.
  3. Recovery: Stand up and walk a few steps with a walker the day after the procedure i.e. in 24 hours. Physiotherapy in hospital for 5 to 7 days and/or walking, progressively longer walks and exercises over the following 15 days. Stitches are removed in 15 days. The patient can return back to normal activity in 4 to 8 weeks the surgery.
  4. Activities: Normal walks of 3 to 5 km per day Climbing stairs, cycling, swimming, and driving can be performed with the new implant(s) now.
  5. Avoid: Squatting/kneeling Prohibited: contact sports like football, cricket, tennis; jumping; adventure sports Longevity of joints: 15-35 years depending on the materials used.
