You might be an elite athlete or just a commoner. There is always a possibility for you to develop back pain while carrying out your daily activities. You might not be aware, but regular activities—like sitting at the computer, running on the treadmill or simply crawling into your bed for a good night's sleep—can affect the health of your spine. You are always at the risk of damaging your spine. These damages lead to back pain. It has been found that faulty postures can cause back pain by causing straining of the back muscles, injuring the tendons and damaging the vertebrae or ligaments. Back pain can be caused due to the overuse of a particular activity or for undertaking a new activity. Besides all these possibilities, most people put the blame on their discs for back pain.
What Are The Discs?
The human spine is composed of 24 bony vertebrae. These are placed one on top of the other. There is a thin intervertebral disc between each vertebrae. These discs look like jam doughnuts. They are made up of a hard outer shell known as the annulus fibrosis. They have a soft, jelly-like inner core known as the nucleus pulposus. They are shock absorbers.
What Happens To The Discs When An Injury Occurs?
The jelly-like soft core in the discs can often get shifted as a result of the accident or injury. Thus, the discs become a reason behind back pain. The pain could be due to the problems with the disc while carrying out tasks like —
Symptoms Of Disc-Related Pain:
Symptoms tend to vary due to the nature of the injury and the damage caused. However, some common symptoms have been listed below:
Localised back pain
Pain in thighs, lower legs and feet
Numbness or muscular weakness
It is best to consult a doctor to know about the treatment needed for back pain related to disc. Initial treatment after detection of the problem includes the following ways:
Intake of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and pain medication.
Application of heat and ice packs.
Home exercise program as suggested by the doctor.
Practicing of core and lumbar strengthening exercises.
One must stop movements that aggravate the pain and don’t take difficult physical activities. You must take adequate rest to set things right.
Do You Need Any Surgery?
It is not always needed for all disc related problems. Most issues with the disc vanish after a week. Surgery is sought only after nonsurgical treatments prove useless. The decision must be taken by a doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a physiotherapist.
My dad aged 59 years met with an accident and his ribcage got fractured and also there is swelling in shoulder bone .How long it takes for it to cure? Does bed rest alone can cure fracture? Its been a week ,and doctor has given him chest belt and shoulder belt .He has advices him to wear it when he sits or stand. Today he is telling that he is having very less hearing capacity in one ear .he can hear very less .Another ear hearing is fine .Is it necessary to show him to some ENT?
A shoulder dislocation occurs when the bones of the upper arm snap out of your shoulder blade, generally after suffering a major injury. The joints of the shoulder are the most flexible body joints, thereby, making them more prone to dislocation. In most of the cases, a dislocated shoulder can be fixed within a few weeks’ time with the help of proper diagnosis. There is a high chance of suffering from dislocations over and over again. A dislocated shoulder, if not treated immediately, can lead to further complications such as damage to the blood vessels and nerve around the affected area or tearing of the associated muscles or ligaments.
What can cause a shoulder dislocation
You can experience a dislocation in your shoulder joints due to the following reasons:
- Shoulder dislocation can occur if you play any kind of contact sports such as football or hockey. You are more susceptible to a dislocated shoulder if the sports or physical activities you engage in regularly involve the risk of suffering from falls such as gymnastics or volleyball.
- A dislocated shoulder is a common occurrence if you have suffered a major motor vehicle accident that might have affected your shoulder.
- You can also suffer from a dislocated shoulder if you have survived a fall in the recent past such as tripping from a ladder or similar injuries.
Symptoms of a dislocated shoulder
You are suffering from a dislocated shoulder if you exhibit the following signs and symptoms:
- Abnormal enlargement of the affected area or bruising
- Severe pain around the shoulder area due to a recurrent muscle spasm in the shoulder joints
- Extreme pain while moving the joint
- A sense of numbness or a tingling sensation near the affected area, for example, in areas around the neck or the arm
- Visibly deformed shoulder joints
Treatment for shoulder dislocation
The treatment for shoulder dislocation depends on the severity of the injury. The following treatments can be implemented with suggestion from the doctors:
- If you had recurrent instances of dislocated shoulders, your doctor might suggest a surgery to remedy the damaged blood vessels and nerves around the area.
- Depending upon the intensity of the pain, the doctor might implement a general manoeuvre procedure to relocate your shoulder bones. After the procedure is conducted, you will feel your pain significantly reducing.
- Your doctor can also recommend you to wear a sling around your shoulder area to regulate the movement of the shoulder joints for the first few days to about 3 weeks, depending upon the intensity of the pain. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
I am suffering with back pain, unable to any wrk. Please help me. My legs also paining all the time. I did not taken any treatment till now.
I Single Knee to Chest
Tight hamstrings can restrict movement in the pelvis and lead to back pain and injury. This is one of the most effective stretches for relieving lower back pain,especially when a full leg extension is added.
1.Single Knee to Chest Lie flat on your back with your legs together and arms out to the sides. Point the toes straight up and be sure the small of your back is pressed to the floor.
2.With your right hand,bring your right thigh up to your chest until you feel a stretch in your lower back and hips. Be sure to keep the left leg flat. Hold for 10 to 15 seconds and repeat on the other side.
CAUTION: Don’t arch your back
II Double Knees to Chest
Flexibility of the back muscles and mobility of the spine are important for success in many sports, for both performance and injury prevention. This is a simple stretch that pays a big dividend when it comes to targeting the low back muscles.
1.Lie flat on your back with your legs together and feet flat on the floor. Be sure that your back is flat and in full contact with the floor.
2.As you lift your legs,lock both arms under your thighs and pull your knees toward your chest.Stop when you feel a stretch to the lower back or if you feel discomfort. Hold the stretch for 15 to 20 seconds.
CAUTION: Do not do this if you feel pain in your low back during the stretch.
EASIER: If you find it too challenging to pull both legs up at the same time, keep one foot flat on the floor as you bring one leg to the chest and then alternate.
III Seated Low Back Rotation
Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work and visits to the doctor. This pain often results from a lack of physical activity, which leads to weakened muscles. If you have a tight but otherwise healthy back, perform this stretch slowly and gently for an effective mild stretch.
1.Seated Low Back Rotation LOWER BACK Seated on a stability ball or in a chair with your back straight and core tight,begin with your feet flat on the floor and arms at your sides.
2.Cross your right leg over your left. Turn your torso and shoulders to the right.Hold this position for 10 to 15 seconds and repeat on the opposite side, with the left leg over the right.
