I am suffering from back pains from 2 days can you suggest me with medicine to take for back pain.

Homeopath, Sindhudurg
I am suffering from back pains from 2 days can you suggest me with medicine to take for back pain.
Homeopathy is one of the most important and effective therapy for back pain. Homeopathy produces excellent results in backache treatment without producing any side effect and is extensively used in all over the world. Homeopathy is a nature system of healing and that is why it can heal whole symptoms of illnesses and it also cure the illness from its root. Tips for backache: heavy objects should be pushed rather than pulled. The weight of the objects should be taken in your bent legs and arms and not in your back. During an acute attack sleep with a pillow under the knees. Choose shoes that offer good support in the arch and have low, but not flat, heels. Prop up one foot on a box or low stool when you're standing for a long time. Use a chair that provides support for your back, or tuck a little pillow behind your lower back. Tips to improve balance/alignment/motion: lift your leg so your thigh is parallel to the ground while touching a wall. Hold it for five breaths. For alignment, move side to side while sitting on a balance ball. For motion, try moving forward and backward on the ball. Consult for homoeopathic treatment.

Right Time to Have a Knee Replacement Surgery

M.CH. (Ortho), MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi

I am Dr Deepak Thakur, senior consultant of joint replacement surgery. My area of specialization includes joint replacements including computer navigations knee replacements.

When should we go for a knee replacement? Is there any particular age?

 Well, today’s modern time age is not the criteria for undergoing a knee replacement surgery. Your level of pain, as well as your level of disability, decides when you should go in for a knee replacement. Most of the patients, they are very fearful.

Will there be a lot of pain during the surgery?

Well, with modern pain relieving medications and procedures, nowadays the knee replacement surgery is as pain-free as possible. Even the recovery part, it is a multimodal pain relief which we employ including epidural analgesia’s, patient control analgesia’s, patches and IV medication. Generally, the patient is pain-free, even during the surgery as well as post the recovery. The recovery part starts from the day of the surgery. On the day of the surgery, we make you do some exercises. The next day we make you stand and the second to third, we make you walk with the help of a walker and gradually as the recovery progresses with the help of a stick. We may even allow you to climb and come down from the stairs, depending upon your level of recovery. We generally, advice avoiding contact sports. By contact sports, I mean playing football hockey etc after knee replacement surgery. But most of the activities like swimming, cycling and doing brisk walking you are able to do it very efficiently. You are able to bend your knees after the surgery. Your knee replacement surgery consists of a metal implant which is there implanted in the thigh bone. This is your thigh bone. As well as a metal and a plastic implant

which is implanted on your leg bone. So, this again is your new knee. Of course, you will be able to bend your knees like this, straighten up your knees like this. You will be able to do your normal activities like bending. Your level of bending depends upon how well your leg muscles touch your thigh muscles. This will be the amount of bending that you will be having, which is generally equal to your preoperative status. So yes you will be able to bend and straighten your knees after your knee replacement surgery. You will be able to sit cross legged, but generally, we advise you to not sit cross legged because when you get up it puts a lot of pressure on the knees. But you can sit easily cross legged on the bed because getting up from a bed does not require a lot of pressure on your knees. We employ a computer navigation which is highly accurate even in few degrees. The life and with modern day implants is on an average 15 to 20 years.

For any further queries, you can contact me on lybrate offline or online.

This might be due to lack of blood circulation in the hands and we suggest to do contrast bath therapy ie. immersing in cold/hot water in the interval of 3-5 minutes which will help you reduce the pain.For the right hand pain it might be due to carpal tunnel syndrome, where the pain will be felt in the wrist. You can do hot water fermentation/ wax therapy for shoulder and for the wrist pain (hand pain) you can do ice therapy which will reduce the pain

I am suffering from a back pain from many days after when I fall down back on my weight on my back.

MD PHYSICIAN

I am suffering from a back pain from many days after when I fall down back on my weight on my back.
Avoid sitting up in bed, sitting on soft couches, and twisting or sitting in other positions that make your symptoms worse. Try using a heating pad on a low or medium setting for 15 to 20 minutes every 2 to 3 hours. You can also buy single-use heat wraps that last up to 8 hours. You can also try an ice pack for 10 to 15 minutes every 2 to 3 hours. A warm sitz bath for 20 minutes, 3 to 4 times per day after the first 48 to 72 hours, can be soothing to the tailbone area. Sitting in a hot tub or warm bath may also feel good, as long as you are not sitting directly on your tailbone. You can consult an orthopedic to get yourself examined for the same.

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. 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.

I am 26 years old and I have backache (disc problem l4, l5) last two years. I am not properly heavy pain please tell any suggestion.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned backache as one problem and also mentioned the mri finding. Since you are very young, if you have only localized backache with no other associated symptoms like radiating leg pain, numbness, paresthesias etc, my advice to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc in case you are having back pain. If you do not feel better with these measures in 2-3 weeks time, we will need to evaluate you further. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

Osteoporosis and Back Pain

BPTh/BPT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Noida
Osteoporosis and Back Pain

OSTEOPOROSIS

From middle age many women are affected by a disorder called osteoporosis. This is essentially a mineral deficiency disorder.During and after menopause, there is a significant and continuing deficiency in calcium replacement which must in many cases be supplemented with calcium tablets on a regular basis. As a consequence of calcium deficiency, there is a weakening of bone structure resulting in a slow but progressive reduction in bone height. This in turn allows the postures of those affected to become extremely rounded, especially in the mid or thoracic part of the spine.In persons affected by this disorder there are risks of fractures occurring without any significant forces being applied to the bones of the vertebrae. Research conducted at the Mayo Clinic in the United States has demonstrated that extension exercises performed regularly  had significantly reduced the number of compression fractures in the group exercising in this manner. A similar group exercising differently and a group not exercising at all had significantly more fractures when examined at least one year later. This study suggests that women from perhaps the age of forty onward should practice this exercise as described on a regular basis.My own recommendation would be that the exercise should be performed fifteen to twenty times, four or five times per week. If you are uncertain regarding this advice, discuss the matter with your doctor before commencing the programme. Should you have difficulties with the exercises for one reason or another, you should consult a manipulative therapist who will show you means of modifying the exercise without necessarily reducing its effectiveness.The muscles strengthened by performing the exercises recommended by the Mayo Clinic study are also the muscles responsible for holding you upright, and it is probable that maintaining good posture at all times will assist in the strengthening process. This may also reduce the likelihood of small fractures occurring.

I am facing a problem with lordosis (backbone lower part is curve) what I have to do.
The compression of the sciatic nerve should be around the right side that's the reason you have pain in the left side. That's the reason you cannot sit or stand and it is exactly around the L5 vertebrae where the sciatic nerve passes by. It can also be due to the strain on the left leg, try wearing MCR chappals which would help you to get relieved from pai Physiotherapy Treatment If you have low back pain and sciatica you can undergo intermittent pelvic traction where in your half of your body weight will be added in the electronic traction so that that would help you to reduce the pain, along with Interferential therapy stimulations which would help you to get relieved from the radiating pain. Apply ice for the pain to get subsided immediately.

The fracture should be set right & immobilised.(Either by plaster or by surgery). A normal balanced diet is good enough for fracture healing.
