Apply an ice pack to the painful area of your head. Try placing it on your forehead, temples, or the back of your neck. Take a warm bath or shower; take a nap; or take a walk. Ask someone to rub your neck and back, or treat yourself to a massage. Apply gentle, steady rotating pressure to the painful area of your head with your index finger and/or thumb. Maintain pressure for seven to 15 seconds, then release. Repeat as needed. Rest, sit, or lie quietly in a low-lit room. Close your eyes and try to release the tension in your back, neck, and shoulders.

Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation. To relieve mild pain: stay off your leg as much as possible apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down please go to a physiotherapist if: you have pain during or after walking you have swelling in both legs your pain gets worse your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment you have painful varicose veins if you feel the pain is from muscle cramp then you need to drink a lot of water because poor fluid intake (dehydration) may predispose to cramps also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps.

How to relief my back pain without using medicine and less money and get a good relax?
Dear, low back pain are often referred for physical therapy for four weeks as an initial conservative (nonsurgical) treatment option before considering other more aggressive treatments, including back surgery. The goals of physical therapy are to decrease back pain, increase function, and teach the patient a maintenance program to prevent future back problems. Common forms of physical therapy include: 1.Passive physical therapy (modalities), which includes things done to the patient, such as heat application, ice packs and electrical stimulation. For example, a heating pad may be applied to warm up the muscles prior to doing exercising and stretching, and an ice pack may be used afterward to sooth the muscles and soft tissues. OSee Physical Therapy: Passive PT (Modalities) for Back Pain 2.Active physical therapy, which focuses on specific exercises and stretching. For most low back pain treatments, active exercise is the focus of the physical therapy program. This article focuses on active physical therapy and exercise as a means to help recover from back problems and prevent or minimize future flare-ups of low back pain Low back pain has lasted between two and six weeks, or if there are frequent recurrences of low back pain, physical therapy is often recommended. Some spine specialists consider physical therapy sooner, particularly if the pain is severe. •Read more: Exercise and Back Pain In general, the goals of physical therapy are to decrease pain, increase function, and provide education on a maintenance program to prevent further recurrences.

Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

5 Ways To Control Lower Back Pain

5 Ways To Control Lower Back Pain

The lower back region of your body contains many important supportive structures to carry your upper body weight and also transfer the weight to the hips and the legs. This weight is primarily carried by lower vertebrae of the spine along with muscles and ligaments. There are many important nerves running through the spine which perform important functions of the nervous system. Lower back pain could be caused if any of the above is adversely affected.

Causes of Lower Back Pain

If you sprain your ligaments or muscles it could cause lower back pain. Curvature of the spine could also affect the nerves within the spine, pressing up against them, thus causing pain. Some of the common causes include poor posture, arthritis, fracture, improper lifting, or a ruptured disk among others. There are no variable symptoms associated with this condition but only one, which is pain in the lower back.

Tips to Control Lower Back Pain:

  1. Restorative sleep: Getting lots of sleep or rest is a great way to correct lower back pain, especially the ones caused by muscles or tendon wear and tear. Paradoxically, irregular sleep might aggravate your lower back pain. Make a strict sleep routine and stick to it. Make sure to get at least 8 hours of sleep and more if prescribed by the doctor to reduce the pain and let the body heal itself.

  2. Exercise is the key: Your lower spine is supported by the muscles residing in your back and abs. These muscles need to be strengthened through exercise, during the period of a normal day. There are a wide range of exercises which can be performed for about 30 minutes to keep your core muscles engaged and provide relief to the nerves of your lower back.

  3. Heat Therapy: Heat therapy brings nutrients and stimulates blood flow to the affected area. There are several forms of heat therapy like a hot shower, heating pad, heat wrap, hot water bag, or soaking the affected area in a hot-tub which provides warmth and heals your lower back.

  4. Cold Therapy: This therapy helps to reduce the pain to a great extent. It is defined as a process of ice pack application on the affected area which decreases inflammation by slowing down the nerve impulses. It reduces pain and by allowing you to rest also help in healing.

  5. Correcting your posture: It is very important for you correct your posture as spinal deformities arising from years of bad posture is a leading cause of lower back pain. Try to sit in a corrective posture and slowly increase the time that you can spent in that posture until good posture becomes your default. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pain Management Specialist.

Lower Back Pain - How To Deal With It?

Lower Back Pain - How To Deal With It?

The lower back or the lumbar area is the region that lies right below the rib cage. Pain in the lower back is usually a result of persistent muscle spasms that make it a chronic pain. While many people suffer from this kind of pain at some point or the other, there are few who actually take up exercise as a long-term solution to deal with the pain. A proper exercise schedule and regular yoga can actually strengthen your lower back and help it support the spinal cord in a better manner. Also, most orthopedic specialists recommend constant movement to alleviate the painful symptoms of lower back pain. Do go through this list of exercises to find one that suits you.

  • Partial Crunches: This one requires you to lie down, prop your knees up with your feet firmly on the ground and your hands behind your head. Now bring your body partially up and stop shy of doing a full on sit up. This will help in relaxing the muscles in the lower back, to a great extent.
  • Hamstring Stretches: Get on your back and prop up one knee. Take a towel and loop it under the ball of your other foot. Now lift and hold as you press your foot into the towel, to gradually relieve some of that stress as it plays on your lower back.
  • Ankle and heels: The classic ankle pump involves lying flat on your back and stretching your feet before you begin to move your ankles in an up and down motion. Repeat it ten times for each set. You can combine this exercise with the heel slide where you have bend and straighten your knee ten times each, in the same position as you lie flat on your back.
  • Wall Squats: While actual squats can be painful if you are suffering from lower back pain, you can take the support of a nearby wall for squats that will work the muscles in a more soothing manner and give you a good workout at the same time.


Touching your toes, running on the treadmill, sit-ups and other forms of intense exercise that make the back work too hard should be avoided if you are suffering from lower back pain.

there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.
