Hello lybrate-user, I think back pain in your case can be due to bad posture or sleeping on too soft & irregular surface, also your back muscles are weak, so I would suggest you to strength the core muscles of back & go for some mobility exercises.
Hello, the reason behind your back is not obvious with late night study on bed. It could be one of the reason, if your bed is too soft. Well, for proper evaluation, you should visit an orthopedic physiotherapist. In the mean time, you can apply hot pack at your back for 15 minutes twice daily. Apply ketoplast pain plaster at low back for 24 hours and change and re-apply a fresh one if needed. (if your age is above 18) take proper rest. Sleep on your side, avoid sleeping on your stomach. Use firm mattress. Avoid lifting heavy object from the ground. Take adequate rest. Have enough water daily. Do not bed bound yourself because of pain, complete bed rest in never the solution. Modern day funda is keep moving, because motion is lotion. Thanks hope it helps. Take care.
You know the cause of your backpain- studying on bed so Correct it. 1. Use table chair for studies. Chair with back rest and feet should rest on floor. 2. Take analgesics like paracetamol for relief and start back stretcheingle and strengthening exercises once pain is relieved. 3. Apply warm water bag on back for 10 mins 4 times a day. 4. Take breaks in between study and take a walk. 5. Do not bend and lift weights. 6. Go for activities like swimming. If your problem is persistent consult again.
