I am IT working guy I have to sit for 9 hrs on chair and I have to travel in cab 2 hrs in morning and 3 hrs in evening to reach to office. Now from last couple of days I am feeling back pain. What precautions should I take to avoid back pain and to cure back pain.
I am having back pain since past 3 months especially on lower back and exactly on my center of back. What may be the possible causes for this or any underlying symptoms? Kindly help.

I’m 28 year old, male, currently undergoing Air Force flying training which involves exposing G-force (1-5), and we have to use helmet also. Started paining as soon as I put helmet and after hard turn maneuvers (G-force) it’s sever. I reported sick and after doing MRI they said nothing is wrong with me. Below is the finding of MRI reports: -diffuse disc bulge at c4-5, c5-6, c6-7, level, impinging upon the thecal sac with mild bilateral neuro-foramina narrowing. - there is subligamentouse disc bulge noted at c4-5 c5-6 & c6-7 level without significant neural compromise. The (APXTRXCC) diameter of cervical canal c4-5 (10. 8 mm) c5-6 (11. 5 mm)&c6-7 (10. 8 mm) - degenerative change of lumber spine. - central disc protrusion at l4-5& l5-s1 without significant neural compromise / secondary spinal canal stenosis. However, having doctors said that, I’m not convinced cause now I can feel pain radiating through left arm sometimes. As day gets harder as does pain. I look down nor up long time it cause pain. Doctors said it’s normal to find those finding on anyone. They say there is no you’ll get pain. It’s your mental issue. I’m so confused now.
I am 25 year old male and I have backache for last 2 month. I have used pain relief ointment cream for couple of days haven't got any relief. What should I do?
The knee is the joint where the bones of the lower and upper legs meet. The largest joint in the body, the knee moves like a hinge, allowing you to sit, squat, walk or jump.
The knee is vulnerable to injury and to the development of osteoarthritis.
The knee consists of three bones:
• femur - the upper leg bone, or thigh bone
• tibia - the bone at the front of the lower leg, or shin bone
• patella - the thick, triangular bone that sits over the other bones at the front of the knee, or kneecap.
The ends of the bones are covered with a layer of cartilage, a slick, elastic material that absorbs shock and allows the bones to glide easily against one another as they move.
Between the tibia and femur bone are two crescent-shaped pads of cartilage that reduce friction and disperse the weight of the body across the joint.
The bones are held together by a joint capsule, which consists of two distinct layers – an outer layer of dense connective tissue and an inner membrane, called the synovium, which secretes a fluid to lubricate the joint.
The outer layer of the capsule is attached to the ends of the bones and is supported by these ligaments and tendons
• Hamstrings - muscles on the back of the thigh, which run from the hip to just below the knee and work to bend the knee.
• Quadriceps - four muscles on front of the thigh that run from the hip to the knee and straighten the knee from a bent position.
Arthritis of the Knee
Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints. Any joint in the body may be affected by the disease, but it is particularly common in the knee.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic disorder that affects the joints. OA of the knee happens when the cartilage, or cushion, between the knee joints breaks down. This can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling. It is a degenerative,"wear-and-tear" type of arthritis that occurs most often in people 50 years of age and older, but may occur in younger people, too.
Knee arthritis can make it hard to do many everyday activities, such as walking or climbing stairs. It is a major cause of lost work time and a serious disability for many people.
- A knee joint affected by arthritis may be painful and inflamed.
- The joint may become stiff and swollen, making it difficult to bend and straighten the knee.
- Pain and swelling may be worse in the morning, or after sitting or resting.
- Vigorous activity may cause pain to flare up.
- The knee may "lock" or "stick" during movement. It may creak, click, snap or make a grinding noise (crepitus).
- Many people with arthritis note increased joint pain with rainy weather.
In Ayurveda, osteoarthritis is considered a disease of malnutrition that tends to affect vulnerable joints (due to previous injury or infection, congenital reasons etc). When Agni (the ‘digestive fire’ ) is not working properly, wastes or toxins known as Ama are produced instead of useful nutrients for the tissues. These toxins accumulate in the gut and at the same time, Vata (Air/Ether) accumulates in the colon.
Causes of Vata aggravation include: eating excessively cold, dry, rough, bitter, astringent or pungent foods; irregular meal; excessive travelling; constant multitasking and rushing around; high stress; lack of proper sleep; excessively cold or dry environments; a physically or mentally traumatic event; change or shock; excessive movement.
Aggravated Vata along with Ama (toxins) move from the gut into the channels of circulation, find places in the body that are weak or vulnerable (in this case the joints) and settle in. Ama can block the channels supplying nutrients to the joints causing further malnutrition. The deterioration and subsequent irritation in the joint causes inflammation, stiffness, swelling and pain.
In both cases of arthritis (Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis) strengthening Agni and removing Ama is the immediate concern.
This is achieved by the following:
- Take regular meals
- Eat fresh fruits and vegetables
- Avoid vata aggravating food that is bitter, astringent and spicy.
- Take desi cow ghee in diet.
Regular exercise under proper guidance can help:
- With weight loss, which can ease the strain put on your joins
- Preserve range of motions in the joints
- Improve muscle strength
- Reduce joint pain and swelling
The herbs boswellia, turmeric, dashmool,ashwagandha, ginger, triphala, guggulu, and shatavari have all been shown to decrease inflammation by interfering with the production of inflammatory chemicals in the body
