How can a Physiotherapists helps you in backpain?
A physiotherapist is a special health care provider who has specific knowledge of body structures related to spine, i.E. Muscles, ligaments, bony vertebrae, discs, alignment of spine, force distribution etc. Physiotherapist is specially trained to treat disorders of musculoskeletal conditions like  back.He uses many modern approach to treat backpain and help you to avoid  any future back problems.

What are the reasons causing backpain?
There are many reasons behind an episode of back pain.Sometimes you have an injury or a pull and hurt your back.As time passes by structures will heal by itself and you get relief from pain.
But there are some complicated reasons like poor posture, obese, poor habits in working, faulty bending and of course age is a main cause of back pain in  aging discs of our spine.

Some people experience only pain but have sensory problems also, so what does this mean?

In young healthy persons our spine is strong and capable of withstand any disturbing force which causes back, unless person has an injury or a specific cause to it.As the injury heals pain automatically goes down.
But in person with tasks like long sitting, poor postural habits, tearing of disc, spine loses its ability to withstand these forces and so loses its anatomical configuration slightly in the form of body adjustments like bony beaks, which sometimes press passing nerves from spine so we have sensory feelings of pain.

I have backpain, should I go for MRI or CT scan?
MRI or CT scans are special investigation prescribed by healthcare provider to make a strong diagnosis.These are not usually advised in every backpain.
An X ray can be advised to check for bones and disc of spine.

Is Heating pad  are enough to cure backpain?
Heating pads are advised to decrease pain and spasm. They are usually advised but for decreasing pain and uncomfortable which is the first reason of visit to a physiotherapist.
Specialized manual therapy and stabilization exercise, kinesthetic awareness etc  are important in back rehabilitation program .

Well, I'm doing a back office job in night shift which makes me sit alot and I'm just sleeping all day and work all night can't get time to workout. The problem is "I'm a smoker" and I've been doing it since 2011 on regular basis, averagely I smoke 3 cigarettes a day. These day I'm feeling like I'm burning inside my chest, too hot in there. Am I dying or anything serious is going to happen with me? I've tried several times to quit smoking but after 2 or 3 days I restarts it all the time. I can't run, I can't play games even I'm having issues while having sex, I get tired very fast may I'm having erection problem too. I'm too young to have all these issues. Please help me on this.

Dear lybrate-user, There are many who are on night shift and still working out. Nobody can make you work for more than 10-12 hours a day, Even if you spend 7-8 hours a day sleeping, you still have few hours for yourself. Try and start a work out program at the earliest. Along with lack of exercise, smoking adds to the risk of many medical problems at an earlier age. It is good that you tried stopping smoking. It is usual for people to restart after 2-3 days because they have craving and/or withdrawal symptoms. Both can be addressed in a systematic manner by nicotine gums and motivational enhancement therapy. If it is done continuously for 12 weeks, you may remain cigarette free for longer time. Quitting smoking may increase your sexual potency. Let us wait, till you stop smoking for 12 weeks. Otherwise also it can be treated.

I got an injury on my middle toe by playing football. It is sprained for two weeks. When I try to move my toes upside down. I get a cracking sound. Is it a problem? Or I should relax and give rest to my toes. My middle toe is bit inflated because of sprain. I used ice pack and volini. And I see improvement but the cracking sound and sprain worries me. Need help. Hope you will understand what I am trying to say.

Hello lybrate-user, From what symptoms you are showing, I think you have strained your back while doing certain exercises in incorrect form at gym. You need to rest your back for few days, so no gym for sometime till the pain settles. Also, I would suggest you to see a Physiotherapist/ Orthopedic Doctor. Till then: 1. Keep icing your back 10 mins/ 3-4 times a day 2. No gym exercises 3. No lifting weights 4. No bending over 5. If you have to travel for long hours in car, take a break every 20 mins and take a small walk 6. Similarly at work place/college, if its lot of sitting, get up every 20 mins and take a small walk For further questions feel free to post THANK YOU Dr.

It seems that your neck pain has started at the age of 24. This is the common age when people develop mechanical neck pain due to poor postural habit during pronged use of laptop/desktop/study/ android phones etc along with inadequate exercise. Hence until & unless your posture is corrected & you follow proper ergonomics advices no treatment will benefit you. Also warm water fomentation + electrotherapy + kinesiology taping will help you a lot. You can visit any musculoskeletal physiotherapist nearer to you.

It looks like you have ignored the problem for long time. 10 years is too long period. You are just 28 and all findings of MRI are suggestive of damage to meniscus, and Knee joint which is usually seen after 50 years of age. You need to undergo Arthroscopy surgery. Meniscus should be repaired if it is repairable, though chances of repair are low as it is very old injury as per your history. Need to see MRI images to comment more.

From two days I am having pain in my back neck. What medicine should I prefer to cure it, it hurts when I rotate my neck?

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
You can apply any analgesic ointments or gels or sprays 4-5 times per day. Avoid hard pillows. Use soft pillow while sleeping. You can take analgesic tablets orally. You can even go for a mild oil massage. If the pain does not subside within 2-3 days with the above measures, get yourself checked by a doctor for further treatment.
