Back Pain - Identifying The Underlying Factors!

Back Pain - Identifying The Underlying Factors!

Gone are the days when back pain affected a person only in their old age. Nowadays, almost every second person suffers from some kind of a backache. From sedentary lifestyle to certain diseases and ailments, the back pain can result from the amalgamation of various factors, making the condition painful (mild to chronic) and uncomfortable to the hilt. In this article, we will mainly stress upon the factors responsible for a back pain.

Underlying factors that often triggers a back pain

More than often, prolonged and chronic back pain interferes with the daily activities of a person, thereby jeopardizing their lives. For a proper treatment and management, one should first identify the factors responsible for the back pain. Some of the common and critical triggers include

Medical conditions:

  • SciaticaSciatica is a neurological disorder whereby an inflammation or injury of the sciatic nerve (considered the largest nerve in the body) triggers numbness and a shooting pain that moves downwards, often from the lower back (the lumbar region) through the buttocks and hips into the back of one leg. Sometimes, a person may experience a pain down both the legs.
  • Osteoarthritis of the spine: This is a painful degenerative disorder of the spine that mainly affects the neck and the lower back. Here, the cartilage of the discs and joints (lower back and neck) are damaged causing pain and weakness. In some people, the pain is so severe that it limits their motion to a great extent.
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis: Stenosis of the lumbar spine results in severe back pain, especially in the lower half (lumbar area), triggered by narrowing down of the spinal canal.
  • Osteoporosis of the spine: This is a bone disorder where the bones become so porous, thin and weak that they start to crack and break (including those of the spine), a condition known as vertebral compression fractures. These fractures are a common cause of weakness and back pain.
  • Shingles: This is a viral infection (varicella-zoster virus) characterized by the appearance of a rash which is often painful. Shingles can occur in any part of the body including the spine. The viral infection in the spine is what triggers the back pain.
  • Spinal Cancer, muscle spasm or ligament tear and strain on the back can give rise to back pain.
  • Back pain can also be an outcome of rupture or disorder of the discs that act as a defensive shield between the spinal vertebrae.

Lifestyle practices:

  1. Leading a sedentary life can be dangerous, often causing back pain.
  2. People who are overweight or obese (especially the lower half) are known to suffer from a back pain.
  3. In many people, rigorous exercise and physical activities can be a major contributing factor, triggering a back pain.
  4. Women who wear high heels are more susceptible to developing a back pain.
  5. In addition to these, bad posture, stress, a poor quality mattress can equally contribute to back pain.
  6. Do not neglect the condition if the pain persists for more than a week. Get medical assistance to avoid further deterioration and complication. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Hello,Homeopathic medicines are less invasive and have more herbal approach towards gaining the weight. There are a number of homoeopathic medicines, which treat the root cause behind the body’s inability to gain weight or bulk up. 1. Take alfalfa tonic(wsi), 2 – 2 tsp. Thrice a day, half an hour before meals. 2. Calcarea phos 200, 5 drops , once in aweek , morning empty stomach for 2 weeks. 3. Take eggs, milk, butter, bananas, potatoes, mangoes, figs, oats, soyabean and dry fruits. 4. do light exercises regularly to keep your body active. These homoeopathic medicines and dietary addition will increase your appetite and give your metabolism a healthy boost. ***If you do not get results with this treatment then please revert me i will suggest you to go through some tests.*** Thanks.

Dear doctor I am suffering from leg knee pain from last 5 years and nothing show in xray so what can I do for that.
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. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

How to gain weight in type one diabetics. My height is 5 feet 2 inch. What type of food should i choose that should not affect my blood sugar ?

Vaidya Visharad
Sexologist, Narnaul
Dear,People who are underweight and do not have fat deposits on their body may not be getting enough calories to fuel their body. This could have a direct impact on all of their organs and may eventually lead to a variety of health problems.There are ways to get into the shape we desire and to gain weight fast. This would require understanding the reason for low weight and maintaining a diet for weight gain. In weight loss, the simple formula is to burn more calories than you consume, but to gain weight you have to also find out if there is something in your body that is preventing you from getting to the weight that you desire.

I've been taking cymbalta for 8yrs for depression & chronic pain. I started having terrible sweating, short term memory loss, severe depression, worsening pain, & so many other side effects it would take an hour to write them all down! my Dr. Started slowly trying to get my dosage down from 90mgs, & after getting down from 60mgs to 30mgs, my side effects became unbareable. I forged on & now i'm on my 2nd day of taking just 5mgs of lexapro, after going 3 days w/out taking cymbalta. I'm curious if anyone has successfully conquered this transition, & how long it took to feel somewhat normal? i'm aware it doesn't happen overnight, & i'm not asking for rainbows & butterflies-but the way I feel now is not good! along w/the other stated side effects, i'm so lethargic & my brain is acting as if I turned the switch to off. i desperately need your advice.?

I can empathise with you. Your description is so elaborate that I could feel it. Though I don't know about the medication but your symptoms do look like coming from a long period of unaddressed stress and anxiety. You could take up counselling which can additionally help you to cope and manage with the chronic pain. Have you tried any of the alternative healing techniques for depression and pain management? you can also look into your exercising routine, food and lifestyle, all which play a role in these issues. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Hi, I pill delays periods. There are chances of'more than normal' bleeding during periods after taking I pill. There may be vomiting-like-feeling, vomiting, stomach pain for some. I pill definitely delays periods, so don't worry about that. If she don't get periods within 15 days of taking I pill, she should undergo pregnancy test.

PolyCystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD)

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik

PolyCystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD)


PolyCystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) जिसे PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) की कहा जाता है, एक महिलाओ में पाया जाने वाला सामान्य विकार है। अनुमान किया जाता है की प्रजनन की उम्र वाली 90 लाख से ज्यादा महिलाओ को PCOD है तथा इनमे से 60 % से ज्यादा महिलाओ को पता नहीं है की उन्हें यह विकार है। कुछ सालो पहले यह समस्या 30 से 35 साल के ऊपर की महिलाओ में ही आम होती थी परन्तु अब कम उम्र की लड़कियों में भी यह ज्यादा प्रमाण में दिखाई दे रही है।

PCOD क्या है ?

महिलाओ में Sex Hormones के असंतुलन के कारण अंडाशय (Ovary) में छोटी-छोटी गाठ या cyst तैयार हो जाती है जिस कारण महिलाओ के मासिक धर्म (Menstrual Cycle) के साथ प्रजनन क्षमता (Fertility) पर भी असर पड़ता है। 

महिलाओ में अंडाशय में सामान्य से अधिक मात्रा में Androgen Hormones की निर्मिति होने पर अंडाशय में छोटी-छोटी तरल पदार्थयुक्त cyst तैयार हो जाती है जो धीरे-धीरे आकार में बढ़ने लगती है। इससे महिलाओ में प्रजनन क्षमता कम हो जाती है और महिला गर्भधारणा करने में असमर्थ हो जाती है।

PCOD के लक्षण क्या है ?

PCOD से पीड़ित महिलाओ में निम्नलिखित लक्षण पाए जाते है :

अनियमित मासिक धर्म (Menstrual cycle) चेहरे / शरीर पर अधिक बाल मुंहासे (Acne) Dandruff पेटदर्द गर्भधारणा में मुश्किल आना यौन इच्छा में अचानक कमी आना गर्भ में छोटी-छोटी गांठ जो की Ultra Sound Scan करने पर दिखाई देती है  बार बार गर्भपात सिर के बालो का अधिक झड़ना त्वचा पर डाग मोटापा 


PCOD के क्या कारण है ?


PCOD होने की मुख्य वजह महिलाओ में Hormones की सामान्य से ज्यादा प्रमाण में निर्मति होना है। स्त्रीरोग विशेषज्ञों का कहना है की पिछले 10 से 15 वर्षो में महिलाओ में PCOD के प्रमाण में 50 से 60 प्रतिशत वृद्धि हुई है। इस असामान्य वृद्धि के कुछ खास कारण है :

असंतुलित आहार (Diet): पिज़्ज़ा, बर्गर जैसे शरीर के लिए हानिकारक junk food। ज्यादा तेलयुक्त, वसायुक्त और मीठा आहार।

 रोग (Diseases) : PCOD होने के पीछे मधुमेह (Diabetes) और उच्च रक्तचाप (Hypertension) जैसे रोग भी एक बड़ी वजह है। अगर परिवार में किसी को PCOD का ईतिहास है तो अनुवांशिकता यह भी एक कारण है। Cholesterol का बढ़ना, HDL कम होना या उच्च Triglycerides के वजह से भी PCOD हो सकता है। 

मोटापा (Obesity) : अत्यधिक junk food का सेवन और व्यायाम के अभाव के कारण आज की युवा पीढ़ी में मोटापा एक बहोत बड़ी समस्या के रूप में उभरा है। ऐसे तो मोटापा कई बीमारियो का घर है परन्तु मोटापे में शरीर में बढ़ी हुई अत्याधिक चर्बी के कारण Estrogen hormone की निर्मिति सामान्य से ज्यादा होती है, जो की अंडाशय में cyst बनाने के लिए जिम्मेदार माना जाता है।

 तनाव (Stress) : आज के दौड़भाग के युग में बढ़ रहे तनाव के कारण लोगो का खानपान और दिनचर्या बिगड़ चुकी है। धूम्रपान, शराब, देर रात का खाना इत्यादि कारणों से भी hormonal imbalance होता है।    


PCOD का निदान (Diagnosis) कैसे किया जाता है ?


PCOD  का निदान करने के लिए निम्नलिखित परिक्षण किया जाता है :

Ultra Sound Scan of Pelvis / Vagina 
Serum LH 
Serum FSH 
LH : FSH ratio 
DHEA-S Level 


PCOD का उपचार कैसे किया जाता है ?

दवा (Medicine) : डॉक्टर द्वारा दी हुई दवा समय पर डॉक्टर के निर्देशानुसार लेना चाहिए। दवा से अंडाशय में ovulation induction कर गर्भधारणा में मदद की जा सकती है। अगर आप मुंहासो के लिए इलाज करे तो अपने डॉक्टर को PCOD होने की जानकारी अवश्य दे।

  वजन कम करना (Weight loss) : अगर आपका वजन बढ़ा हुआ है तो उसे कम करने का प्रयास करे। कई PCOD के मरीजों में केवल वजन कम करने से ही बेहद फायदा होते देखा गया है। 

 व्यायाम (Exercise) : व्यायाम करने से आपका वजन नियंत्रण में रहेगा और PCOD की वजह से होने वाली insulin resistant की समस्या भी कम हो जाएंगी। आप अपने उम्र और शरीर अनुसार चलना, दौड़ना, तैराकी या aerobic व्यायाम कर सकता है। 

  संतुलित आहार (Balanced Diet) : खाने में पिज़्ज़ा, बर्गर जैसे शरीर के लिए नुकसानकारी आहार लेने की जगह हरे पत्तेदार सब्जी और फल का समावेश करे। 

जीवनशैली (Lifestyle) : चिंता, शोक, भय, क्रोध इत्यादि तनाव बढ़ाने वाली चीजो से दूर रहे। योग और प्राणायाम करे। हमेशा सकारात्मक विचार रखे।

 शल्यक्रिया (Surgery) : जरुरत पड़ने पर PCOD के उपचार में शल्य क्रिया या operation भी किया जाता है जिसे Laproscopic Ovarian Drilling (LOD) या Laparoscopic Electrocauterisation of Ovarian Stroma (LEOS) कहा जाता है। इस Operation में Laser या Cautery से अंडाशय के cyst में छेद किया जाता है।  

PCOD से पीड़ित महिलाओ में मधुमेह, उच्चरक्तचाप और कर्करोग होने का खतरा रहता है। जल्द उपचार आदि कार्यवाही करने से PCOD के दीर्घकालीन जाखिमो से बचाव किया जा सकता है।

Considered as a home remedy, sugar is known for its exfoliating effects. Its coarse texture can help get rid of dead skin and minimize the unsightly appearance of these lines on your thighs, stomach, and arms. To use this natural exfoliant, take a heaping tablespoon of sugar and place it in a small bowl. Then, add in a few drops of lemon juice with some almond oil. Combine the juice with sugar and stir thoroughly. When your homemade exfoliant is ready, just rub it for a few minutes on the affected area of your skin. Afterwards, rinse the mixture off with warm water and pat dry. Make it a habit to scrub your skin with sugar and lemon juice mixture for a month until you discover positive results on your skin. 2. Aloe Vera Known for years as a natural remedy for skin issues, aloe vera is also effective when it comes to minimizing the appearance of stretch marks. With its cooling and healing components, you can achieve positive results from using this herbal remedy regularly. Just get few small aloe vera leafs, and use this to rub on your skin for a few minutes. Next, rinse the area off with lukewarm water. Another option in using aloe vera is by taking the gel form of this plant. Then, get 5 capsules of vitamin A and vitamin E, and extract their oil. Combine these vitamin-enriched oil with your aloe vera and rub on the affected area well. Wait for the mixture to be absorbed completely by your skin, and leave on for about 10 minutes. You should also apply this daily for favorable results.

Hell lybrate user- this might be due to following reasons so try to avoid them- a) sleeping in day time. B) going to bed late (generally after 10 pm). C) lack of hair oiling. D) excessive intake of spicy and fried diet and less intake of sweets. Avoid these reasons and use mahabhringraj hair oil for head massage daily before going to bed, you will get relief quickly.

Please try to adapt a healthy lifestyle. Let her eat a high fibre diet. Include seasonal vegetables, fruits and green salad in daily meals. Let her drink 10-12 glasses of water. Keeping physically active (like exercise and yoga) can be very beneficial and give relief very soon. A temporary course of external fibre like isapghol powder can also be taken twice a day. Please ensure that she goes for a routine medical check up so that she can be properly guided. If the complaints persist then Homeopathy can be a good option as it is very safe and effective.
