Don't need to use knee cap. Apply ice in circular motion on your affected site untill you feel irritation or redness on the affected site while applying ice. Stop the procedure nd again repeat the same after 3 hours. Note: relate this every 3 hours or 4 times a day for 3 to 5 days.

If you have low back pain and sciatica you can undergo intermittent pelvic traction where in your half of your body weight will be added in the electronic traction so that that would help you to reduce the pain, along with Interferential therapy stimulations which would help you to get relieved from the radiating pain. Apply ice for the pain to get subsided immediately. If you cannot go immediately for the physiotherapy treatment. Ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. It is suggestible to wear Lumbo sacral belt which would help you to build the abdominal muscle tone which itself would make you feel better. You can also wear MCR chappals which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back.

I am 22 years old and my body weight is 63 to 65 kgs. I had an accident 2 years ago and I got fractured on my left leg (fumer and tibia) and had an surgery with stainless steel plate. Due to this accident my knee's ligament (ACL and PCL) has been injured, and due to ligament surgery I have to remove my plate. I want to do this surgery after my graduation (2 years remaining). So my question is how long I keep this stainless steel plate inside my leg? And is it OK if I'll keep stainless steel plate inside my leg for 4 to 5 yrs?

You can keep the plate for as much time you want but the problem is you have instability in your knee due to ACL/PCL injury and if you don't get the reconstructive surgery done then your whole knee will be spoiled latet.

Back Pain - You must Know

Master Of Surgery, DNB (Orthopedics)
Orthopedist, Agra
Back Pain - You must Know
Definition:
Back pain (usually one refers for lower back region) is one of the most common reasons people visit the doctor or miss work and a leading cause of disability worldwide. Most people have back pain at least once.
Fortunately, one can take measures to prevent or relieve most back pain episodes. If prevention fails, simple home treatment and proper body mechanics often will heal back within a few weeks and keep it functional for the long haul. Surgery is rarely needed to treat back pain.

Signs and symptoms of back pain may include:
1. Muscle ache
2. Shooting or stabbing pain
3. Pain that radiates down your leg
4. Limited flexibility or range of motion of the back
Most back pain gradually improves with home treatment and self-care, usually within two weeks. If not, see your doctor.

In rare cases, back pain can signal a serious medical problem. Seek immediate care if your back pain:
1. Causes new bowel or bladder problems
2. Is accompanied by fever
3. Follows a fall, blow to your back or other injury
4. Is severe and doesn't improve with rest
5. Spreads down one or both legs, especially if the pain extends below the knee
6. Causes weakness, numbness or tingling in one or both legs
7. Is accompanied by unexplained weight loss
8. First time after age 50, or if you have a history of cancer, osteoporosis, steroid use, or drug or alcohol abuse.

Back pain can come on suddenly and last less than six weeks (acute), which may be caused by a fall or heavy lifting. Back pain that lasts more than three months (chronic) is less common than acute pain.
Back pain often develops without a specific cause that your doctor can identify with a test or imaging study. Conditions commonly linked to back pain include:
1. Muscle or ligament strain
2. Bulging or ruptured disks
3. Arthritis
4. Skeletal irregularities like osteoporosis

Risk factors
Anyone can develop back pain, even children and teens. Research has yet to prove what contributes to back pain. However, these factors might put you at greater risk of developing back pain:
1. Age
2. Lack of exercise
3. Excess weight
4. Diseases
5. Improper lifting
6. Psychological conditions
7. Smoking

Investigations
If you see your doctor for back pain, he or she will examine your back and assess your ability to sit, stand, walk and lift your legs. Your doctor might also ask you to rate your pain on a scale of zero to 10 and talk to you about how well you're functioning with your pain.

These assessments help determine where the pain comes from, how much you can move before pain forces you to stop and whether you have muscle spasms. They will also help rule out more-serious causes of back pain.
If there is reason to suspect a specific condition may be causing your back pain, your doctor may order one or more tests:
1. X-ray
2. Mri or ct scans
3. Blood tests
4. Bone scan
5. Nerve studies (electromyography, or emg)

Most acute back pain gets better with a few weeks of home treatment. Over-the-counter pain relievers and the use of heat or ice might be all you need. Bed rest isn't recommended. Continue your activities as much as you can tolerate. Try light activity, such as walking and activities of daily living. Stop activity that increases pain, but don't avoid activity out of fear of pain. If home treatments aren't working after several weeks, your doctor might suggest stronger medications or other therapies.

Medications
Depending on the type of back pain you have, your doctor might recommend the following:
1. Over-the-counter (otc) pain relievers
2. Muscle relaxants
3. Topical pain relievers
4. Narcotics
5. Antidepressants
6. Injections

Education
Physical therapy and exercise
Physical therapy is the cornerstone of back pain treatment. A physical therapist can apply a variety of treatments, such as heat, ultrasound, electrical stimulation and muscle-release techniques, to your back muscles and soft tissues to reduce pain.
As pain improves, the therapist can teach you exercises that can increase your flexibility, strengthen your back and abdominal muscles, and improve your posture. Regular use of these techniques can help prevent pain from returning.

Surgery
Few people need surgery for back pain. If you have unrelenting pain associated with radiating leg pain or progressive muscle weakness caused by nerve compression, you may benefit from surgery. Otherwise, surgery usually is reserved for pain related to structural problems, such as narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis) or a herniated disk, that hasn't responded to other therapy.
A number of alternative treatments may ease symptoms of back pain. Always discuss the benefits and risks with your doctor before starting any new alternative therapy.
1. Chiropractic care
2. Acupuncture
3. Massage
4. Yoga

You may be able to avoid back pain or prevent its recurrence by improving your physical condition and learning and practicing proper body mechanics.
To keep your back healthy and strong:
1. Exercise
2. Build muscle strength and flexibility
3. Maintain a healthy weight
4. Stand smart
5. Sit smart
6. Lift smart

Buyer beware
Because back pain is so common, variety of products and neem hakim promise to prevent or relieve your back pain. But, there's no definitive evidence that special shoes, shoe inserts, back supports, specially designed furniture or stress management programs can help. In addition, there doesn't appear to be one type of mattress that's best for people with back pain. It's probably a matter of what feels most comfortable to you.

Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are many causes of pain in lower back region. It can be due to faulty posture, related to weak muscles, issues with intervertebral disc, narrowing of spinal canal, any bony instability besides many other, so accurate diagnosis is the key to proper management of the condition. You will have to elaborate your problem as to a detailed discussion of your back pain which means duration of pain and mode of onset. I would also like to ask you if it is associated with any leg pain or any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias (electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. Please also tell me about any associated symptoms like fever, weight loss etc. What medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.
