Back Pain In Kids and Teens - Don't Ignore If Your Child Is Complaining!

Back Pain In Kids and Teens - Don't Ignore If Your Child Is Complaining!

Over the years of adulthood, a combination of bad posture along with wear and tear means that a significant amount of the adult population is affected by back pain. But is this normal for children, as well? Well, in most cases, the answer is a 'No'.

Children and adolescents have a greater degree of flexibility than adults, that is they do not complain of back pain as much as adults do. So when should a parent be worried if their child complains of acute back pain?

If a child is very active, then this could be a cause for concern when it comes to injury to the back. Due to the rough nature of the sort of activity that he or she is engaged in, stress fractures are possible. These injuries are generally explained by overuse. What a parent needs to keep an eye out for is, if the child complains of pain when certain actions are performed. So, back pain which occurs, say, during butterfly stroke when the child swims could mean that the child has a case of spondylolysis or a stress fracture.

If the back pain is so bad that the sleep of the child is disturbed and he or she wakes up on account of it, the parent should take this seriously. The reason for this is that the pain could be caused by a tumour to the spine or an infection. A possibility apart from these two could also be arthritis.

A parent should also be worried when the back pain is not the only thing that the child complains of. That is, if there are other things such as a fever and weakness, as well as pain extending down either or both legs, it could be a sign that the trouble is more than just superficial. In a similar way, when there is trouble walking or there are problems related to the functioning of either the bowel or the bladder, a doctor is to be consulted.

One of the most common cases of back pain in children happens to be Scheuermann’s disease, which is also known as Scheuermann’s kyphosis. What this means is that the spine is rounded in the middle. While this causes pain, it is usually not debilitating enough to hinder normal movement. But, after all, who would want their child to go untreated and suffer as a result?

I am suffering from severe leg pain at my toe frequently. Give me a immediate remedy.

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy)
Physiotherapist,
I am suffering from severe leg pain at my toe frequently. Give me a immediate remedy.
There is no immediate remedy. But if you could find the cause there is a chance. *check your shoe (if you wear shoe frequently) if your toe tip is more sharp just replace it with other shoe. *check your foot - if there is more elevated arch on inner mid aspect that may be reason - then have to place an elevation on the outer mid aspect of your footwear. Press over the ankle area (front and sides) firmly if you find the same kind of pain occurrence on your toe (you haven't mentioned which toe) this may be because of nerve compression which supplies to your toe. Wish you get well soon!

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 a back pain from last two months. What can I do for this, please tell me as soon as possible.
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. -Find a mattress with back support. A good mattress should provide support for the natural curves and alignment of the spine. Medium-firm mattresses usually provide more back pain relief than firm mattresses. -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 -Good posture plays a key role in your spine health, helping to prevent additional back and neck pain and even injuries to spinal structures. Try to be aware of your posture and make good posture part of your normal routine. -head up, shoulders back, rear tucked under -Stand and walk with correct posture -Sit with support -Lift and carry carefully -And finally, keep moving:-Maintaining a static position for too long—more than twenty or thirty minutes at a time—is hard on the back. Prolonged static posture can slowly deplete elasticity from the tissues. By simply moving—be it a change of position, a stretch, or a short walk—the tissue elasticity needed to protect your joints can be restored and the associated discomfort reduced. -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 current can give you relief. -Consult a Physiotherapist for detail assessment and management of your back pain. Best wishes.

What is the reason of joint pain. How can I cure my diabetes? How blood pressure can be controlled?

What is the reason of joint pain. How can I cure my diabetes? How blood pressure can be controlled?
Mr. Lybrate-user, you have asked three totally different questions. Anyway, joint pains can be due to a number of conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and some inflammatory conditions affecting single joint also. Diabetes mellitus, is a disease due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both. So there is no chance for cure, it can only be controlled by proper medications, diet control, exercise and weight maintenance. Blood pressure if high will also need drug/drugs to control plus salt restriction.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).
