My mother is 40 years old and suffering from back pain. Pls suggest me that what should I do?
Physiotherapy treatment does help to reduce back pain, but beware of quacks, electrotherapy will be used to reduce the pain but eventually therapeutic exercises for the back will give long lasting relief. Necessary precautions like heavy weight lifting, forward bending and sitting without a back support should be avoided. Use a firm mattress for sleeping.

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.

I have a back pain. Actually I met an accident and my spinal card is bit damaged. So only i am getting lot of back pain. What should I do for this? can you suggest me.

Backache is a common ailment. Rule out diabetes & vit.D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. SPRING BEDS, FOLDING BEDS OR THICK MATRESS ARE HARMFUL Use no pillow under the head. Any way take IBUPROFEN 200mg OD & SOS x 5days CALDIKIND PLUS (mankind) 1 tab ODx10days You will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take Do ask for detailed treatment plan..Don’t ignore, lest it becomes starting point of a major problem

Try the tips.:: 1.Warm mustard oil or sesame oil (1 teaspoon) with 3-4 cloves of crushed garlic and 1 tsp of ajwain (carom) seeds until it roasts to a reddish brown colour. Ensure that it does not get burned. Massage this oil on your affected areas. After that do hot fomentation with salt potli (bag). 2.Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. 3.Increase the consumption of vitamin C in diet. 4.Take fresh Ginger into pieces, place in the cup of water and boil it for 30 minutes in low flame. Cool for 30 minutes after boiling. Consume this solution with Honey. 5.While sleeping, lie straight on your back or with bent knees supported by a pillow. 6.Taking hot and cold compresses on an alternate basis can be quite helpful in relieving pain. 7. Get an X ray spine done and revert back with reports.

Hello.
I have been suffering of lower backpain for 2 year so what should I do? Thank you.
Dear lybrate user, low back pain for 2 years is not a symptom but itself a disease irrespective of primary reason for which back pain exists and that primary reason can be many from intervertebral disc, facet joints, canal stenosis, sacroilitis, paraspinal muscle spasm to liagamentum flavum hypertrophy. Advise would be to get yourself thoroughly examined to find out the source of pain and treat it accordingly

I have been diagnosed with spiking of tibial spine bilaterlly, tiny marginal ostophytes formation seen at right patellar polar region. I feel some hard object while lying down at night and also burning sensation in my anus region. Pl advise?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Spiking of tibial spine with marginal osteophytes are indication of degenerative changes in your knee region. Treatment of osteoarthrosis depends upon what grade of degeneration has occurred, what is your knee range of movements and what medications like analgesics do you use on a daily basis? recommendations for early oa are: - start doing daily brisk walks for at least 2-3 km in a day in mornings. - intensive knee - quadriceps and hamstring strengthening exercises should be initiated initially in presence of a trained physical therapist and then at home on your own - avoid sitting cross legged, not to use indian style washrooms, do not do anything which eccentrically loads the knee and increases cartilage breakdown. - adequate calcium and vitamin d metabolism in terms of appropriate intake is important to keep bone metabolism ok - you can take short course of anti inflammatory medication like tab etoshine on sos basis especially when there is an episode of inflammatory pain, swelling etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

During my working hours when I put shoe its give me pain under the feet even I am not so fat.
Dear lybrate-user, commonest cause of foot pain is faulty foot wear. So if you have foot pain may be we need to find out what is wrong with your foot wear. You also need a diagnosis so that needs detailed evaluation and imaging to come to a diagnosis. Meanwhile you can wriggle your toes and move them often in office when you are just sitting after removing your shoes.
