Physiotherapy heals gently and slowly.No medication / non surgical way of treating spine
What causes a slip (herniated) disc?
Violent injury or the normal aging process or by everyday activities- lifting heavy objects the wrong way, stretching too hard during a sports activity, commonly happens in neck (cervical spine) or lower back (lumbar spine).
How can physiotherapy reduce pain and disc pressure?
To know how does physiotherapy helps first we need know about the occurrence of events at spine after prolapsed disc.
Whenever disc herniation occurs muscles try to protect slip of the disc as a result there is sudden muscles spasm because of which there sudden onset of pain and slipped disc also causes lot of inflammation when it presses surrounding ligaments and vessels. Situation worsens when person tries to move with stiff back more pain results due to wrong movement of muscle.
If pain killers are taken then till an extent they help to reduce inflammation and spasm, but prolapsed disc is mechanical problem. Compression on ligaments and occlusion of blood vessel persists. Pain comes back on stopping pain killers.
For, exercises are prescribed in opposite direction of disc compression so further compression can be reduced and strong muscles can support the spine inefficient way. Physical therapy works on the cause of the pain, not just suppresses it.

Knee pain is referred to as a condition when the knee joints (which are responsible for walking, running, sitting and standing along with bearing the maximum body weight for most forms of physical activities) are significantly inflamed, giving rise to a severe pain in particular areas or the entire knee joint. There might also be severe stiffness around the knee joint which might make it very difficult to function.
Knee pain might occur due to obesity, old age, different forms of arthritis, severe injury in the knee or the associated ligament or bones, knee cap dislocation, overuse of the knee joint and infections of the knee joint.

This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homoeopathy is not only to remove the symptom of knee pain but to cure its underlying cause. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several well-proved medicines are available for knee pain that can be selected on the basis of cause, location, sensation, modalities and extension of the knee pain. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a homeopathic doctor in person. The effective homeopathic remedies for knee pain are as follows :
Bryonia Alba – This homeopathic preparation is effective in curing knee pain with the symptoms of severe pain in the knee joints during walking. Pain stops when you stop walking or moving and you may also have an abnormal growth in the knee joints. If the knee pain is caused due to osteoarthritis, Bryonia Alba can prove to be a useful remedy as well.
RhusTox – If the knee pain comes with the symptoms of severe pain in damp weather, intense pain after initial movement which tends to gets better in continuous motion, a prescribed dosage of RhusTox might help in the elimination of the pain.
Colchium – The medicine is useful in treating knee pain which worsens due to movement and subsequently improves in warm weather or after getting appropriate rest.
