Towel Hamstring Stretch Lie on the back, supporting the thigh with the hand or with a towel wrapped around it.. Slowly straighten the knee until a stretch is felt in the back of the thigh, trying to get the bottom of the foot to face the ceiling, one leg at a time. Hold the position initially for 10 seconds, and gradually work up to 20 to 30 seconds. Seated Hamstring Stretch While sitting at the edge of a chair, straighten one leg in front of the body with the heel on the floor. Then, sit up straight and try pushing the navel towards the thigh without leaning the trunk of the body forwards. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds Repeat 3 times for each leg.

What is Spinal stenosis?

Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal and foramen, which results in increase pressure on spinal cord and nerves which emerge out from spinal cord.

Causes of stenosis
degenerative ageing process of your spine.

the ligaments of your spine may hardened and calcify, and start to compromise the adjacent structures .

Increased bone stress causes bone spurs, which encroach in the spine?s space.

spinal discs, become dehydrated with age and lose their height. This disc narrowing can deteriorate quicker with injury eg disc bulges or degenerative disc disease.

Osteoarthritis of your spine is the most common form of arthritis and is more likely to occur in middle-aged and older people. It is a chronic, degenerative process. It is the result of everyday wear and tear of the spine joints, and is often accompanied by overgrowth of bone, formation of bone spurs, which can cause spinal stenosis.

Spinal stenosis is most common in men and women over 50 years of age and is related to degenerative changes in the spine. However, it may occur in younger people who are born with a narrowing of the spinal canal or who suffer an injury to the spine.

Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis?
numbness, muscle weakness, diminished reflexes , cramping or general pain in the arms or legs.
The most common stenosis regions of your spine are your lumbar spine (low back) and your cervical spine (neck), but any spinal region can suffer stenosis.

In lumbar spinal stenosis, the spinal nerve roots in the lower back are compressed and this can produce symptoms of pain, tingling, weakness or numbness that radiates from the low back and into the buttocks and legs, especially with activity.

Cervical stenosis may cause similar symptoms affecting your arms and potentially your legs too!

If the narrowed space within the spine is pushing on a nerve root, you may feel pain radiating down the nerve eg sciatica. However, unlike patients who have sciatica due to slipped disc, this sciatica is relieved by sitting down in stenotic patients.

Classically, in stenosis patients, sitting or bending forward to flex the spine should relieve your symptoms. The flexed position ?opens up? the spinal column and therefore enlarges the spaces between the vertebrae. Because keeping the lower back ?flexed' (bent forward) relieves their symptoms, patients will often walk with a slight stoop forward or look downwards.

sciatica
With this adaptive posture, the lower back is often stiff and tightness develops in the hip flexor muscles at the front of the hips.Standing, walking or bending backwards often makes stenosis-related symptoms worse because this position causes narrowing of the space surrounding the nerves.

Walking up a hill may be fine because leaning forwards opens up the space around the nerves.

The space in the spine may narrow without actually producing any symptoms of stenosis. It is only when the narrowing causes the compression of the spinal cord, nerves and nerve roots, that there may be an onset of stenosis symptoms.

Your neck or back may not even be painful. In severe spinal stenosis, you may experience with constant or worsening back pain; numbness or pins and needles in the genital region; weakness in both legs; and or disturbances in bladder or bowel function. If this is the case, you require urgent medical attention!

How is Spinal Stenosis Diagnosed?
Your physiotherapist or doctor may diagnose you with spinal stenosis based on your symptom behaviour alone. However, the extent of your stenosis is best determined via a CT-scan, MRI or myelography.

Spinal Stenosis Treatment
PHASE I - Pain Relief & Protection

Managing your pain is usually the main reason that you seek treatment for stenosis. In truth, it was actually the final symptom that you developed and should be the first symptom to improve.

Managing your inflammation. Inflammation is the main short-term reason for why you have suddenly developed stenosis symptoms. It best reduced via ice therapy and techniques or exercises that de-load the inflammed structures.

Your physiotherapist will use an array of treatment tools to reduce your pain and inflammation. These include: ice, electrotherapy, acupuncture, deloading taping techniques, soft tissue massage and temporary use of a back brace.

Your doctor may recommend a course of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen.

PHASE II - Restoring Normal ROM, Strength

As your pain and inflammation settles, your physiotherapist will turn their attention to restoring your normal joint alignment and range of motion, muscle length and resting tension, muscle strength and endurance.

Your physiotherapist will commence you on a lower abdominal and core stability program to facilitate your important muscles that dynamically control and stabilise your spine.

Researchers have discovered the importance of your back and abdominal core muscle recruitment patterns. A normal order of: deep, then intermediate and finally superficial muscle firing patterns is normally required for pain-free backs. Your physiotherapist will assess your muscle recruitment pattern and prescribe the best exercises for you specific to your needs.

Your physiotherapist may recommend a stretching program or a remedial massage to address your tight or shortened muscles.

Please ask your physio for their advice.

PHASE III - Restoring Full Function

As your back?s dynamic control improves, your physiotherapist will turn their attention to restoring your normal pelvic and spine alignment and its range of motion during more stressful body positions and postures. They?ll also work on your outer core and leg muscle power.

Depending on your chosen work, sport or activities of daily living, your physiotherapist will aim to restore your function to safely allow you to return to your desired activities.

Everyone has different demands for their body that will determine what specific treatment goals you need to achieve. For some it be simply to walk around the block. Others may wish to run a marathon.

Your physiotherapist will make your back rehabilitation to help you achieve your own functional goals.

PHASE IV - Preventing a Recurrence

Back pain does have a tendency to return. The main reason it is thought to recur is due to insufficient rehabilitation. In particular, poor compliance with deep abdominal and core muscle exercises. You should continue a version of these exercises routinely a few times

In addition to your muscle control, your physiotherapist will assess your spine and pelvis biomechanics and correct any defects. It may be as simple as providing you with adjacent muscle exercises or some foot orthotics to address any biomechanical faults in the legs or feet.

General exercise is an important component to successfully preventing a recurrence. Your physiotherapist may recommend pilates, yoga, swimming, walking, hydrotherapy or a gym program to assist you in the long-term.

Fine tuning and maintenance of your back stability and function is best achieved by addressing any deficits and learning self-management techniques. Your physiotherapist will guide you.

What is Your Prognosis for Spinal Stenosis?
The success of treatment for stenosis is reasonably good in the short-term due to the symptom onset mainly being related to recent inflammation.

With each repeat episode, it is more difficult to control your symptoms because your pathology has deteriorated

Dear sir/madam I am having a very peculiar pain below the neck from past one year. That pain sometimes radiates towards chest region and lower back. Before a year when I realised about the pain I use to do heat therapy at home .sun bath use to give great relief. It use to pain during bathing and walking. I use to have shortness of breath. My bp suddenly rose one day and I had to consult the doc. The doc did not understand the problem. Later I consulted homeopath and general physician but they told me to consult a neurologist. My ECG report and spine x ray report was normal. But bp was 200 which came down after I took medication. I do not have any bp problem. Few months later the bp problem was gone and suddenly my mouth and left part got numb as if I had a paralytic attack this happened twice but that too stopped. Now at present whenever I eat food I get pain exactly below left shoulder. This pain retains till partially food gets digested and till gas comes out. For this I take dabur pain hara from past several months. It gives me relief from gas and the pain too. I get unbearable pain sometimes. After eating my wife massages that area below left shoulder resulting in burping and finally pain comes down. Besides whenever I get depressed or frightened I get severe pain in that area. Honestly speaking I live in a very small town where neurologists are not available. And most important thing is that I am going through financial crisis and currently cannot afford the consultation and treatment charges. I have a very strong feeling that one of my nerves in that region has strained or compressed. I use to do heavy body building exercise about 15 years ago and later I stopped doing it completely. As a result my tummy and chest has increased a lot. Last winter I had severe cold and cough. Due to excessive coughing I use to get severe pain in the abdomen. I use to hold it tightly and then cough. After 15 to 20 days I got this shoulder problem. Could that be a possible reason of this nerve problem I am facing? I request you to show me exercises and perfect diet which can reduce my tummy and make me fit again permanently. At present I do push ups at home. Please don't give me advice of diagnosis, medication or treatment.

Lybrate-user, if your wisdom tooth is incorrectly placed or stuck halfway and has not erupted fully because of improper positioning, you will need to get the wisdom tooth extracted to get rid of the problem. If it is incorrectly placed, it is better to get it removed at a early age.

If your pain is that severe that you are having difficulty in walking then you need to consult a Rheumatologist immediately. Nothing can suffice a detailed history and physical examination. Arthritis of any kind will not get treated with calcium. It just maintains your overall bone health.

This could be due to lumbar spondylosis with nerve root compression. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take paracetamol 250mg od & sos you will need other supportive medicines also. Do back (spine) exercises make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you may have to use lumbosacral support for some time. Avoid painful act/activities. Take medicines as prescribed it may have to be further investigated. Do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Back pain is common among riders and is usually due to muscular spasm though there may be other causes too. You may need some physiotherapy to help relax your back muscles followed by some spine strengthening exercises.

1.Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. 2. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling. 3.Do veerbhadrasna, dhanurasna, trikonasna, setubhandasana, utrasana. 10 min each pose daily early morning.

Hi. I need advise on sports injury. I had a sprain in my right ankle about 10 years back while playing football. It's been on and off that the pain reoccurs usually during physical exercise or sports. I have tried physiotherapy and heat treatment but it provides temporary relief. Can you suggest some long term superficial Ayurvedic massage oil or any other remedies please.

It could be that the fascia of your foot that is muscle covering the sole must have been inflamed and become tight. It is called plantar fascitis. You should do contrast treatment of keeping your legs in hot and cold water alternately. Start and end with hot water. Start using footwear like chappals full time (at home) and proper shoes outdoors. Before putting initial steps you should try and move your ankle up and down, rotate, move your fingers and then step down. Kindly follow these.

May be. If you regularly walk on toes your back has to compensate. Avoid wearing high heels. Use dolokind gel locally.
