My father is having severe lower back pain since Tuesday morning. He's unable to move at all. All he can do is go washroom that too with mom's help. This happened few months back too. He used Homeopathy meds and got better. He's using the meds since yesterday and there's no improvement. What can be done to give him relief? Any food to give enough nourishment to the bones? Is there any permanent cure to this lower back pain? Please help out.

Severe lower back pain and restricted mobile can be because of muscles spasm. Apply lukewarm sesame oil on lower back and take hot water bag thrice a day. He should take complete bed rest for 4 to 5 days. He should restrict forward bending and carrying heavy weights. He can eat calcium and protein rich food for example egg whites ; Moong in any form; guava; nachani; milk etc. He should food items which are heavy to digest. If no relief in 1 or 2 days then consult your doctor for X ray. Ayurvedic medicines ; basti ; Katibasti will reduce the pain and prevent recurrence.
