I am 35 years old and I have back pain problems regularly so you say to me what should I do?
Hi If you have localized back pain with - no neurological symptoms like numbness, paresthesia, weakness in limbs etc, my advice is: - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a physiotherapist and then at home. - avoid forward bending, lifting heavy weights etc - take an analgesic like diclofenac or something which suits your body for 5-7 days - take muscle relaxant for same time as analgesic to relieve muscle spasm - ice packs at the site of pain, muscle spasm - local analgesic spray can be used but no massage is required let me know how you are feeling. I will actually ask you to get x ray of involved region of spine ( ap & lateral) and send reports across to me so that I can advise further in a better manner. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance

OSTEOARTHRITIS

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
OSTEOARTHRITIS
Degenerative joint disease, osteoarthrosis, and osteoarthritis are all the same disease characterized by the joint cartilage breakdown causing painful and stiff joints. Literally translated as inflammation of the joints, osteoarthritis is part of the family of diseases known as arthritis which refers to 100 various diseases. Osteoarthritis commonly causes disability. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, but there are effective treatment options.
Osteoarthritis often only strikes one joint, usually a joint that bear a lot of stress such as the hip, back, knee, or hand joints. Symptoms include pain, painful use of the joint, painful periods after the joint has been used, joint discomfort during significant changes in the weather, swelling in a joint, stiffness of the joint, bony lumps in the hand and finger joints, a decreased amount of joint flexibility.

The cartilage between joints is supposed to be smooth to allow joints to easily slide over it while in use. Over time some people lose this smoothness of the cartilage and there is a rough, sandpaper like appearance to the joints. This means that the joints can no longer slide gently over the cartilage. This is osteoarthritis. The cause is time and age and the eventual wearing down of the joint’s cartilage, but it is not necessarily easy to indicate who will suffer from osteoarthritis and who won’t. Joint stress, injury, and heredity tend to play a role in these factors, but it is not an absolute.

CLINICAL MANIFESTATIONS are -

Joint Pain aggravated by use and relieved by rest.
Night Pains.Stiffness of the Joints.Swelling of the Joints.
Tenderness of the Joints.Limited Movement of the Joints.
Wasting of Muscles around the Joints.
Movements of the Joints make crepitus.
There is Deformity of the Joint.
Risk factors for osteoarthritis include gender, as osteoarthritis strikes more females than male, age, as osteoarthritis is typically found in people over 45 years of age, joint injuries especially those related to sports, obesity, diseases that cause malformations or disfigurement of the bone structure, weakened quadriceps, and other forms of arthritis

Factors Leading To Arthritis are -

Overweight.
Lack of Exercises.Excessively rich diet and fatty substance and overeating.
Modern Life (Sitting in chairs and working too long).
Mental Factors like TENSIONS, SUPRESSIONS OF EMOTIONS, FEAR, HYPERSENSITIVITY.
Physical examinations can often determine the presence of osteoarthritis. In some cases a physician may take a list of physical complaints, a physical examination, blood tests which rule out other varieties of arthritis, X-rays, MRI, and other various imaging techniques to determine the presence of osteoarthritis. Imaging can reveal the cartilage loss and the development of boney growth which is indicative of osteoarthritis.
The greatest complication related to osteoarthritis is pain, as often the pain can be so detrimental that it is crippling and prevents mobility or the use of the joint. It is not uncommon for a patient to experience acute and intense pain for the first year of living with osteoarthritis only to have it diminish to reasonable levels. Pain medications are often more intense for the first year of living with osteoarthritis but can cause complications of their own if used for too long. Thus, pain medications are only used when absolutely necessary.

There is no actual cure for osteoarthritis, although there are treatment options available. When the pain is intolerable for more than a year, most physicians recommend replacing the joint. Joint replacement technology has improved dramatically over the past few years and most joint replacements have been done with wonderful success. Other pain relieving options include topical pain relievers, some of which are prescription strength, NSAIDS to help with both the pain and the inflammation, as well as other over the counter pain relievers. Corticosteroid injections can often relieve joint pain for a reasonable amount of time, but are not typically used as a regular therapy for more than a period of one or two years. Low dose antidepressants have been proven to relieve pain without the side effects of narcotics. These medications are prescribed in doses low enough to prevent the effects of antidepressants while still providing pain relief. There are some anticonvulsants that will provide the same type of pain relief even if the patient has no signs of depression or seizures.

YOGIC APPROACH for ARTHRITIS -

Asana – VAJARASANA, PADMASANA, AKARNA DHANURASANA, MARJARASANA.
Hatha Yoga Kriyas – PURNA and LAGHU SHANKHAPRAKSHALANA, KUNJAL and NETI.
Pranayamas – NADISHODHAN and BHASTRIKA.
Meditation – Releases mental and emotional tensions, reduces arthritic rigidity.
DIET –

Cooked light grains and cereals.
Boiled pulses.Boiled and baked vegetables.
Green Salads (TOMATO, BEET, CARROTS).
Fresh Fruits.Reduce intake milk and dairy products

I have leg pain when going to sleep after getup full body pain Whats the reason for this.
Requires detailed examination and investigation. Preliminary investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d urine r/e x-ray of the affected part. Anyway it may be tried sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back, knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure that patient is not allergic to any of the medicines that he/she is going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.

Hello Lybrate user, yes, homeopathic treatment do have really good results in rheumatoid arthritis. It is a chronic condition, hence it take time to get complete results. Although Rs 8000 per month is too costly. As homeopathic treatment is known for being economically affordable and safe.

You should go for physiotherapy. Stiffness of knee is not good. Do hot fomentation and quadriceps strengthening exercise. Use volitra gel locally for pain. You can still walk but try to get some rest also.

I have too much a back pain and I don't know how to handle it by the by Iam a student? please give me a suggestions.
Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain: -stop normal physical activity for the first few days. This will help relieve your symptoms and reduce any swelling in the area of the pain. -apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. --while sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back for the first 6 weeks after the pain begins. -avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -stretching and strengthening exercises are important. But, starting these exercises too soon after an injury can make your pain worse. -some physiotherapy treatment like ift can give you some relief. -a physical therapist can tell you when to begin stretching and strengthening exercises and how to do them. Take a private consultation with a physiotherapist. Best wishes.
