There is a fun saying that anybody who has a back is going to have back pain. Jokes apart, its a stark reality that we are witnessing and will continue to witness in the coming decades due to the over dependence on machines for day to day activities and a higher prevalence of sedentary life style, especially among the young generation whose work depends on computers and staying indoors mostly.
90% people suffer from back pain in their lifetime, among them a fair number need medical help for the same.
Symptoms may include:
- Difficulty in sitting/walking/standing due to back pain
- Pain radiating to buttock, thigh, and or leg
- Muscle spasm and stiffness, sometimes in the morning or at the end of the day
- Soreness / tenderness in spine
Possible causes may be:
Strain of muscle or ligament - most common
Lumbar disc herniation (disc prolapsed/SlipDisc) - Pain mainly in buttock, leg and foot (sciatica)
Facet/spinal joint arthritis - usually causes slow back pain and leads to referred pain in thigh as the disease advances
Spinal canal stenosis and spondylolisthesis-narrowing of space available for spinal cord/nerves in the spinal tunnel -leading to sciatica and back pain that typically increases with standing /walking.
Spinal compression fracture - sudden onset of pain especially in postmenopausal women, osteoporotic individuals and long term steroid use, especially in asthmatics.
Less common causes can be:
- Ankylosing Spondylitis
- Piriformis syndrome
- Spinal tumours
Treatment depends upon primary cause of pain. A large number of patients improve by conservative treatment or natural healing but short period of rest, reduced activity, analgesics/painkiller medication and physical therapy etc. help in recovery.
In some acute and non-responding cases, patients need Injection therapy where medicine is directly injected in and around the painful nerve/joint that provides short to long term relief.
In patients not responding to conservative/injection therapy, surgical treatment is offered. Depending upon the cause it may vary from keyhole surgery, microscopic surgery, minimally invasive spine surgery or open surgery. Contrary to public perception, spinal surgeries achieve the desired goals in 80-90% of the cases when correctly indicated and there is hardly any risk of paralysis nowadays.
Hi, I have right shoulder pain, hip pain, right thigh pain. From yesterday. I have pcod taking treatment. First time I took siphene (clomifene). Is my pain related to this?

I have pain in buttocks while sitting since last 15 days now. I visited a orthopedician and he did a physical exam. Range of motion is normal. I can walk on my heels & toes, do a forward bend or backward bend comfortably. There is no tenderness on palpation anywhere. But when I sit, my buttocks hurt and don't seem to be able to bear my weight. What could be it?
My mom is suffering for last 2 year from arthritic so which medicine and food for this and joint replacement is good option for this she can't walk after this so, please guide.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder affecting the joints, symmetrically (usually). The joints become swollen, red, hot, painful & tender. The joint movement becomes limited due to pain & swelling
It starts with inflammation of the synovial membrane but may involve the joint capsule and other surrounding soft tissues.
It is a self limiting disease. But by the time it leaves, the patient is crippled due to contractures & deformities.
Acute phase can be managed with medicines.
Commonly used medicines are ibuprofen/paracetamol/aspirin in therapeutic doses. They help to control symptoms of pain and swelling of the joints in most of the cases by their anti inflammatory properties. Fever is also controlled.
Vitamins, minerals, anti oxidents & other supportive medicines are also needed. Omega 3 fatty acids have a very definite role to play in improving the response to the treatment.
Physiotherapy helps in preventing contractures & deformities.
The patient should do general exercises & keep active.
He may have to be further investigated.
In established cases of rheumatoid arthritis dmard (disease modifying drugs) e. G. Methotrexate, hcq, leflunomide, saaz etc. Have to be used.
They all are toxic drugs & can cause bone marrow depression along with other side effects. They should be taken under medical supervision.
Sometimes steroids may have to used.
The dose of these medicines should be adjusted to the minimum required, to control the symptoms.
Blood, urine tests & other investigative procedures should be done periodically to rule out any side effects.
X rays of the affected part should be done to confirm diagnosis & assess the extent of damage.
Diabetes, vitamin d deficiency or any other metabolic disorder should be ruled out. Sometimes they mimic the symptoms & create confusion in diagnosis. Associated disorders like these, most certainly affect recovery adversely.
It should be ascertained that the patient is not allergic to any of the medicines that he is going to take.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disorder that lasts over many years with acute exacerbation & remissions. The earning capacity of the family is adversely affected. The cost of medical treatment is high. If the patient needs surgery, it is further escalated. Most of the population in india is not covered by any medical insurance. All these factors put together create an atmosphere of depression in the family. Patient feels morally degraded & may even develop suicidal tendency.
In a situatation like this it becomes essential that a moral support is provided to the patient by his friends & relations. Treating doctor has a very definite role to play in keeping up the moral of patient.
