GETTING UP FROM LYING TO SITTING POSITION
Generally it is noted that an ataxic patient has a tendency to log roll rather than to perform segmental rolling. This tendency should be inhibited and the patient should be encouraged to perform segmental rolling. Once the patient is able to efficiently go in to the side lying position, he is taught asymmetrical push up with the upper limb and then trained to lower the legs from the bed onto the floor so that he can assume the position of sitting at the edge of the cot.
Once the patient achieves good head and trunk control, the therapist should progress to incorporate activities that will put demand on the patient’s static and dynamic balance in sitting. The patient should be made to sit on a stable surface like cot or stool in a unsupported position and then the therapist gives gentle pushes in all directions.
Alternatively the patient may be asked to sit on unstable surface like a wobble board or vestibular ball without holding on to any support.
Once the patient develops good static balance dynamic balance can be trained by giving swaying and rotational activities in sitting. Reaching out activities also improves the dynamic balance in sitting. The patient is made to sit on a vestibular ball then he is asked to hold a cane or medicine ball in his hand which is held in elevated position above the shoulder and then the patient may be made to do various movements of the trunk. Thus the exercises can be made more complicated for the patient.
Performing various functional tasks like dressing, grooming or feeding needs lot of repetition and goes a long way in making the patient functionally independent. The therapist should be skillful enough in allowing the patient to master a particular type of activity before progressing into the next realm of exercises.
THE DRUG MANAGEMENT OF BACK PAIN
Pain killers-or analgesics-are drugs that work by interfering with the pain transmission process.
Depending on the cause and type of your back pain, some analgesics may be more appropriate than others. Paracetamol and aspirin-like drugs(non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs [NSAIDs] are often used to relieve pain caused by musculo skeletal conditions, whereas the opoid analgesics,codeine and morphine, are more suitable for treating moderate or severe pain that originates from damage to the internal organs of the body (e.g. the heart,lungs, liver, bladder, kidney and reproductive organs).
The appropriateness of the various types of drugs also depends on whether your pain is acute or chronic. Although many of the drugs used are the same, they may be used at different doses or more or less frequently.Whilst your doctor can prescribe you a number of different types of pain killers, in many cases, drugs that can be purchased without a prescription are sufficient to relieve many kinds of back pain. You can buy these drugs yourself from your pharmacist, and if you pay for your prescription, this may be cheaper than acquiring the same drug from your doctor with a prescription.
Your pharmacist will advise you which types of drugs are most appropriate for you. Always take medication as directed on the packaging and consult your doctor if the pain persists.Since some types of analgesic are stronger than others, you will usually start with one of the weaker drugs and if this fails to relieve your pain sufficiently, you may work your way up to a stronger drug.
If the stages in pain relief are considered to be like the rungs of a ladder, then most people will have their pain relieved at the lowest rung.
The higher up the pain relief ladder you go, the more likely you are to experience unpleasant drug-related side-effects.
