Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful 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. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take.

Ideally you should avoid sitting on floor because this will aggravate your pain take some anti-inflammatory drugs and topical gel for pain relief if no relief consult local doctor.

Yes, travelling on bike for such a long distance can cause your back pain. You need to do back exercises which will strengthen your back and give support to your spine. Also hot fomentation 3 times a day would help.

I am suffering from backache from 2 year but I think no need to medicine only palish that's the right way.

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Pune
Hello lybrate user, back pain that is associated with day time sedentary jobs like computer professional s are associated with paraspinal muscle spasms. The best way to tackle this sort of pain is to do well spaced stretching exercises of the back, back extension exercises, using hot water bags to provide relief and avoiding stooping posture while sitting. Posture also plays a very important part in back pain, always maintain a straight posture while sitting. While getting up from the bed try to first go on your left or right side of the body and get up side ways. Avoid cruntches or sit-ups: they may increase the pressure on your back and may predispose to slip disc. Always maintain a healthy lifestyle in terms of regular brisk walking, meditation, eating healthy. P. S: try to avoid pain killers (analgesics) as much as possible as many are associated with side effects that you may not be aware of. Stay healthy. Stay happy god bless you.
