Back Pain - How Does Physiotherapy Help It?

Most of us suffer from lower back pain at some point in our lives; be it from a sedentary lifestyle, spending hours at the office desk or from strenuous physical exercises. In most cases, a little bit of rest does the trick. However, if the lower back pain persists for 3-6 weeks, physiotherapy is recommended.

How does physiotherapy help?

The main purpose behind physiotherapy is reducing lower back pain and increasing muscle and bone function, so that such instances are avoided in the future. Physiotherapy is the first line of defence against lower back pain. More drastic measures such as surgery are undertaken once physiotherapy fails to do is job.

Physiotherapy is often recommended when the back pain is caused due to lifestyle factors, a minor injury like a fall or other moderate factors. For more severe back injuries, doctors recommend surgery straight away when there is no scope of performing physiotherapy.

Low-intensity back pain can be cured using a combination of heat packs, ultrasound wave therapy and Iontophoresis (using a localized current source to introduce medical ionic compounds to the body).

A physical therapy program for back pain usually has two components:

  1. Passive physical therapy to help reduce the patient's pain to a more manageable level

  2. Active exercises

Passive Physical Therapy - Modalities

The physical therapist may focus on decreasing pain with passive physical therapy (modalities). These therapies are considered passive because they are done to the patient. Examples include:

  1. Heat/ice packs

  2. TENS units

  3. Iontophoresis

  4. Ultrasound

Active Physical Therapy - Back Pain Exercises

In addition to passive therapies, active physical therapy (exercise) is also necessary to rehabilitate the spine. Here are some of the common exercises for back pain:

  1. Back Stretch: Put your hands underneath your head while lying back. Bend your knees but put your feet on the ground. Roll your legs to one side and hold them there for 10 seconds. Repeat three times for each side.

  2. Deep Lunge: For this, you need to kneel on one knee with the other foot pointed towards the front. Lift the back knee up and hold it there for five seconds and then bring it down. Repeat this exercise three times for each side.

  3. One Leg Stand: This is the simplest of exercises. Hold on to a wall for support while standing and face towards it. Then slowly hold one leg and bend it behind you. Hold in the same position for five seconds before bringing it down. Repeat the process three times for each leg in five second gaps.

Erectile Dysfunction - What Every Man Should Know!

Erectile Dysfunction - What Every Man Should Know!

Erectile Dysfunction: What Every Man Should Know

Erectile dysfunction is an enormous fear of men everywhere, of any age. More than 30 million men in the United States alone suffer from it, and the odds of it happening usually correspond with age: Even with excellent penis care, the older a man gets, the more trouble he might have with getting it up.

The supplement industry has jumped on the fears of ED and pushed all sorts of pills and other medications that claim to help - but true ED goes far beyond what a 'miracle pill' can fix.

It's time to get serious about understanding erectile dysfunction in order to make an empowered, appropriate decision on how to handle it.

1) Myth #1: One bad night equals a problem. Who hasn't had a problem with getting it up? It happens to everyone on occasion, no matter how physically fit a man is or how much he desires his partner. It usually happens after drinking too much, dealing with some jerk at the office, or being so tired it's hard to walk straight, much less do anything else. It might be ED only if the problem persists for three months or more.

2) Myth #2: It's a penis problem. Though what is happening to the body shows up in penis problems, the fact is that ED usually stems from other medical issues. High blood pressure, high cholesterol or high blood sugar can all damage the smaller blood vessels in the body, including those in the penis. The result can be ED. Other factors might come into play as well, such as low testosterone or even depression.

3) Myth #3: Bad habits have nothing to do with this. Though it would be nice to believe that all those vices don't reach beyond the moment, that's just not true. Smokers tend to have more problems with ED than non-smokers. The uses of illicit drugs, marijuana and alcohol have all been linked to erectile dysfunction. Drop the habits and the penis might rise again.

4) Myth #4: Testosterone supplements work. That depends. A man who has been diagnosed with Low-T - anything less than 300ng/dl, as per lab tests - might benefit from prescription-strength supplements. However, many who suffer from Low-T also have other medical issues that can lead to ED, and testosterone won't make those go away.

5) Myth #5: The 'Little Blue Pill' is the only option. The marketing machine behind Viagra, Cialis and other common ED treatments has definitely done its job, as most men now believe that those little pills are the only way to ED salvation. But for many, the pills don't work. What then? There are many other drugs that work wonders, including injectable medications. (And no, those injections don't hurt nearly as much as most men think they will.)

6) Myth #6: Getting it up means it isn't ED. Not so fast there, hoss. Erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to become erect and keep that hardness through satisfying sex. But what does that mean, exactly? Some men are able to get it up but can't get hard enough for penetration. Others get it up just fine, but can't keep it up very long. Some simply aren't able to get hardness at all. All of these problems are considered ED.

7) Myth #7: This is all psychological. Unfortunately, this statement is often made by intimate partners who are confused by ED and see it as a personal slight. Nothing could be further from the truth. Men who have ED often have powerful desire for their partners, which leads to terrible frustration when the equipment doesn't work as planned. Though ED might have some psychological elements, the problem is much more than that.

Maintaining excellent penis health

Unfortunately, there is no magic pill or cream that will ease the issues of erectile dysfunction. However, maintaining overall good health - including good penis health - is essential to ensuring that everything possible is done to curb the problem of ED. Keeping the skin smooth and supple is the job of a high-quality penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven safe and mild for skin), especially one with numerous vitamins and a soothing emollient. Look for crèmes that include Shea butter for moisturizing, acetyl L carnitine for protection, and natural hydrators, such as Vitamin E.

कमर दर्द का आयुर्वेदिक इलाज - Ayurvedic Treatment Of Back Pain!

कमर दर्द जैसी समस्याएं आदमी को बेचैन कर सकती हैं. क्योंकि हमारे ही शरीर में वो हिस्सा है जो पैरों को शरीर से जोड़ता है. इसकी शिकायत सिर्फ बड़ी उम्र के लोग ही नहीं बल्कि युवा भी करते रहते हैं. कमर दर्द की मुख्य वजह बेतरतीब जीवनशैली और शारीरिक श्रम न करना है. अधिकतर लोगों को कमर के मध्य या निचले भाग में दर्द महसूस होता है. यह दर्द कमर के दोनों और तथा कूल्हों तक भी फ़ैल सकता है. बढ़ती उम्र के साथ कमर दर्द की समस्या बढ़ती जाती है. नतीजा काम करने में परेशानी. कुछ आदतों को बदलकर इससे काफी हद तक बचा जा सकता है. आज हम आप को बताते हैं कि किन घरेलू नुस्खों को अपनाकर आप कमर दर्द से निजात पा सकते हैं. आइए आज हम आपको इस लेख के माध्यम से कमर दर्द के कुछ आयुर्वेदिक ईलाज के बारे में बताएं.

कमर दर्द से बचाने वाले घरेलू उपाय

1. लहसुन

रोज सुबह सरसों या नारियल के तेल में लहसुन की तीन-चार कलियॉ डालकर (जब तक लहसुन की कलियां काली न हो जायें) गर्म कर लें. ठंडा होने पर इस तेल से कमर की मालिश करें. ऐसा करने से आप कमर दर्द दूर कर सकते हैं.

2. नमक और गर्म पानी

नमक मिले गरम पानी में एक तौलिया डालकर निचोड़ लें. इसके बाद पेट के बल लेट जाएं. दर्द के स्थान पर तौलिये से भाप लें. कमर दर्द से राहत पहुंचाने का यह एक अचूक उपाय है.

3. नमक की सिकाई

कढ़ाई में दो-तीन चम्मच नमक डालकर इसे अच्छे से सेक लें. इस नमक को थोड़े मोटे सूती कपड़े में बांधकर पोटली बना लें. कमर पर इस पोटली से सेक करने से भी दर्द से आराम मिलता है.

4. अजवाइन

अजवाइन को तवे के पर थोड़ी धीमी आंच पर सेंक लें. ठंडा होने पर धीरे-धीरे चबाते हुए निगल जाएं. इसके नियमित सेवन से कमर दर्द में लाभ मिलता है.

ध्यान में रखने लायक बातें

5. अधिक देर तक एक ही पोजीशन में बैठकर काम न करें. हर चालीस मिनट में अपनी कुर्सी से उठकर थोड़ी देर टहल लें.

6. नर्म गद्देदार सीटों से परहेज करना चाहिए. कमर दर्द के रोगियों को थोड़ा सख्ते बिस्तर बिछाकर सोना चाहिए. ऐसा नियमित रूप से करना भी काफी लाभदायक साबित होता है.

7. योग भी कमर दर्द में लाभ पहुंचाता है. भुन्ज्गासन, शलभासन, हलासन, उत्तानपादासन, श्वसन आदि कुछ ऐसे योगासन हैं जो की कमर दर्द में काफी लाभ पहुंचाते हैं. हलांकि ये हमेशा ध्यान रखें कि कमर दर्द के योगासनों को योगगुरु की देख रेख में ही करना है.

8. कैल्शियम की कम मात्रा से भी हड्डियां कमजोर हो जाती हैं, इसलिए कैल्शियमयुक्त चीजों का सेवन करें. इससे भी काफी लाभ मिलता है.

9. कमर दर्द के लिए व्यायाम भी करना चाहिए. सैर करना, तैरना या साइकिल चलाना सुरक्षित व्यायाम हैं. तैराकी जहां वजन तो कम करती है, वहीं यह कमर के लिए भी लाभकारी है. साइकिल चलाते समय कमर सीधी रखनी चाहिए. व्यायाम करने से मांसपेशियों को ताकत मिलेगी तथा वजन भी नहीं बढ़ेगा.

10. कमर दर्द में भारी वजन उठाते समय या जमीन से किसी भी चीज को उठाते समय कमर के बल ना झुकें बल्कि पहले घुटने मोड़कर नीचे झुकें और जब हाथ नीचे वस्तु तक पहुंच जाए तो उसे उठाकर घुटने को सीधा करते हुए खड़े हो जाएं.

11. कार चलाते वक्त सीट सख्त होनी चाहिए, बैठने का पोश्चर भी सही रखें और कार ड्राइव करते समय सीट बेल्ट टाइट कर लें. नियमित रूप से ऐसा करना बहुत लाभदायक सिद्ध होता है.

12. ऑफिस में काम करते समय कभी भी पीठ के सहारे न बैठें. अपनी पीठ को कुर्सी पर इस तरह टिकाएं कि यह हमेशा सीधी रहे. गर्दन को सीधा रखने के लिए कुर्सी में पीछे की ओर मोटा तौलिया मोड़ कर लगाया जा सकता है.

Back Pain - Best Treatment Options Available For It!

Lower back pain is a very common discomfort causing condition that occurs anywhere on the back below the ribs and above the legs. The pain is very common and it faced by most individuals at least once during their lifetime. The most basic measures to cure your lower back pain are exercising well, eating healthy and maintaining a good body posture at all times.

Here are some of the common treatment options for reducing back pain.

  1. Spinal Manipulation: It refers to an ancient form of therapy in which your back pain is treated externally. This form of treatment is quite similar to a massage treatment and helps to relax the muscles in the lower back area, thereby reducing the pain. It is usually done by osteopathic physicians, chiropractors, occupational therapists and physical therapists.
  2. Neurostructural integration technique (NST): The main role of this type of treatment is to naturally reset the affected area of the body in order to allow it to regain its normal form. The results usually begin to appear after at least 2 sessions of the therapy and the effects are long lasting in nature.
  3. Acupuncture: This is an old technique which uses small needles at strategic locations on your skin. The main aim of the acupuncturists is to re-balance the flow of energy in your body and to ensure that you have an optimal level of energy in all parts of your body. This in turn helps to regain the normal state of your lower back if the right points on the body are targeted.

Other measures: Some preventive measures which ensure that the lower back pain once gone does not reappear are as follows:

  1. Keep your spine straight and posture correct
  2. Avoid excessive bending, stretching or weight lifting
  3. Avoid heavy physical activities like sprinting
  4. Regular and light exercising

पीठ दर्द के लिए योगासन -Yoga For Back Pain!

आजकल पीठ दर्द की समस्या बहुत ही आम और बढ़ती जा रही है. यह समस्या किसी को भी किसी भी उम्र में हो सकती है. वास्तव में इसके पीछे का मुख्य कारण मांसपेशियों में तनाव और जोड़ों में खिंचाव होना है. कुछ लोगों को कमर दर्द केवल अस्थायी रूप से होता है जबकि कुछ लोगों को बहुत परेशान कर देता है. यदि आपका दर्द कम गंभीर है तो आप कुछ योगासन अपनाकर अपनी पीठ को मजबूत, स्ट्रेचिंग और रीढ़ और नसों के संचलन में सुधार करने में मदद कर सकते हैं. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से आप पीठदर्द के लिए आवश्यक व्यायामों को जानें.


बालासन न केवल बच्चे के आराम करने का एक अद्धभुत तरीका है. यह आपकी पीठ और आपके कूल्हों को भी स्ट्रेच कर सकता है. आप इस आसान को कभी भी कर सकते हैं. बालासन करने के लिए जमीन पर वज्रासन में बैठ जाएँ. अब सांस लेते हुए दोनों हाथो को सैर के ऊपर उठा लें. आप सांस छोड़ते हुए नीचे की ओर आएं कूल्हों से झुकते हुएं. और तब तक झुके जब तक कि आपकी हथेलियां जमीन पर न लग जाएँ. अब एक गहरी लम्बी सांस अंदर ले और बाहर छोड़ें. इस मुद्रा में आप जितनी देर रह सकते हैं उतनी देर रहें. बालासन हमारे लिए एक आरामदायक आसन है. इस आसन से कमर के साथ-साथ पूरे शरीर को आराम मिलता है.


धनुरासन करने के लिए पेट के बल लेट जाएँ. दोनों पैरो के घुटनो को मोड़ कर एड़ियों को कूल्हों पर टिकाएं. अब हाथो से अपने टखनों को पकड़ें. जितना हो सके उतना अपनी जांघों और छाती को ऊपर उठायें. कुछ देर इसी मुद्रा में रहे और वापिस पहले वाली पोजीशन में आ जाएँ. धनुरासन एक कठिन आसन है, जो हमारी हड्डियों में लचीलापन लाता है और उन्हें मज़बूत भी बनाता है.


जब अर्धमत्स्येन्द्रासन की बात आती है तो आपके पास कई विकल्प होते हैं. यह एक बुनियादी और प्रभावशाली मरिचिआसन में से एक है. अपने बाएं पैर को सीधे रखें और अपना दाहिना पैर को मोड़ो ताकि आपका पैर सपाट रहें. सहायता के लिए अपने पीछे जमीन पर अपना दाहिना हाथ रखें और बाएँ हाथ की कोहनी को दाहिने घुटने पर रखें. अर्धमत्स्येन्द्रासन से हमारी रीढ़ की हड्डी मुड़ती है. आमतौर पर इस प्रकार का खिचाव हमें नहीं मिलता है. ये खिचाव रीड़ की हड्डी के लिए बेहद लाभदायक होता है.


गरुड़ासन आपकी संपूर्ण पीठ को फैलाने और खोलने में मदद कर सकता है. ताड़ासन मुद्रा में खड़े हो जाएँ. अब घुटनों को थोड़ा सा मोड़ते हुए अपना दाहिना पैर उठाएं और अपनी बाईं ओर अपने दाएं जांघ पर रखें. अब फर्श पर अपने पैर की उंगलियों के साथ संतुलन करें,या अपने बाएं पिंडली के पीछे अपने दाहिने पैर को हुक दें. बाहों के लिए, बायीं तरफ दाहिनी बांह को ले जाएँ और कोहनी को झुकाने के साथ, अपने हथेलियों को एक साथ लाएं. आप अपने कोहनी को ऊपर खींचकर एक शक्तिशाली खिंचाव लें और अपने चेहरे से ऊपर हाथ निकाल लें. गरुड़ासन से पीठ के मध्य भाग में खिचाव आता है, जो कि पीठ की मांसपेशियों को खोलता है और उनमें एठन ख़त्म करता है.


त्रिकोणासन करने के लिए सीधे खड़े हो जाएँ. अपने पैरों के बीच उचित दूरी बना लें. अपने दाहिने पंजे को 10 डिग्री और बाएँ पंजे को 15 डिग्री तक घुमाएँ. सुनिश्चित करें की आपके पंजे जमीन को दबा रहे हैं और शरीर का भार दोनों पैरों पर समान रूप से हैं. एक गहरी लम्बी साँस अन्दर की ओर लें और साँस बाहर की ओर छोड़ते हुए अपने शरीर को दाहिने तरफ मोड़ें. अब कूल्हों से नीचे की तरफ जाएँ और अपनी कमर को सीधा रखते हुए अपने बाएँ हाथ को ऊपर हवा में उठाएँ और दाहिने हाथ को नीचे जमीन की तरफ ले जाएँ. त्रिकोणासन कमर के साइड की मांसपेशियों में खिचाव लाता है और साथ ही दर्द, कमज़ोरी और एठन को भी ख़त्म करता है.


हलासन करने के लिए पीठ के बल सीधे लेट जाएँ. बाजुओं को सीधा पीठ की बगल में जमीन पर टिकाएं. दोनों पैसरो को एक दूसरे से मिलाकर रखें. आँखें बंद करके शरीर को ढीला छोड़ दें. अब कोहनियों को जमीन पर टिकाएं हुए दोनों हाथों से पीठ को सहारा दें. इस मुद्रा में 1-2 सांस अंदर और बाहर लें और सुनिश्चित करें कि आपका संतुलन सही बना हुआ है. अब दोनों टांगों को बिलकुल पीछे ले जाएँ. जितना संभव हो सकें उतनी देर इस मुद्रा में रहें. और फिर पैरो को धीरे धीरे वापिस ले आएं. कमर दर्द के लिए हलासन आसन के फायदे - हलासन से पीठ की ऊपरी भाग और गर्दन में खिचाव आता है.


यही एक कारण है कि अधो मुख श्वानासन योग की सबसे प्रतिष्ठित मुद्राओं में से एक है. यह आपके पूरे शरीर को फिर से जीवंत कर सकता है. अपने हाथों और पैरों के बल आएं और शरीर को एक मेज़ की स्थिति में लाएं. साँस छोड़ते हुए कमर को ऊपर उठाएं. अपने घुटने और कोहनी को मजबूती देते हुए अपने शरीर से उल्टा वी (V) बनाएं. हाथ कंधो के जितनी दूरी पर होने चाहिए. पैर पीठ की दूरी के बराबर और एक दुसरे के समानांतर होने चाहिए. अपनी हथेलियों को जमीन पर दबाएँ और कंधो से मजबूती प्रदान करें. लंबी गहरी साँस लें अधोमुख श्वान की अवस्था में बने रहें. अपनी नज़र नाभि पर बनाये रखें. साँस छोड़ते हुए घुटनो को मोड़े और वापस मेज़ वाली स्थिति में आएँ. अधो मुख श्वानासन से पिड़लियों से लेकर गर्दन तक शरीर के पूरे पिछले हिस्से में खिचाव आता है. ये आसन कमर दर्दे के लिए बहुत फ़ायदेमंद है.


अपनी पीठ और नितंबों को मजबूत करने के लिए शलभासन एक शानदार तरीका है. अपने पेट के बल लेट जाएँ और बगल में अपने हाथ टिकाएं. ठोड़ी को थोड़ा आगे लाएं और जमीन पर रख लें. आँखें बंद करके शरीर को ढीला छोड़ दें. अब धीरे धीरे जितना हो सके अपने टांगों को उतना ऊपर उठायें. टांगों को उठाते समय दोनों एक साथ रहनी चाहिए और अपने हाथो से जमीन पर दबाव बनायें. उसके बाद 30 सेकंड से एक मिनट तक ऐसे ही रहे और धीरे धीरे टांगों को निचे ले आएं. लभासन से पीठ का निचला हिस्सा मज़बूत होता है. इस आसन को अपने शारीरिक क्षमता के अनुसार करें, जितना हो सके उतना ही टांगों को ऊपर उठाएं.


पाश्चिमोतानासन करना आसान होता है जिससे आपको फायदा ही नहीं होगा बल्कि यह सही तरीके से लोअर बैक को खोल सकता है और कठोरता और दर्द से राहत प्रदान करता है. अपने पैरों को आगे की ओर फैलाकर बैठ जाएँ, धीरे धीरे कूल्हों पर से झुकते हुए अपने पैरों, टखनों को पकड़ें. अपनी पीठ को गोल करने के बजाय, अपने उरोस्थि को आगे बढ़ाना जारी रखें और धड़ को लंबा करें. यदि इससे आपकी पीठ को दर्द होता है, तो अपने घुटनों को ज़रूरत के मुताबिक मोड़ो. पाश्चिमोतानासन पीठ के निचले हिस्से की मांसपेशियों को खोलता है और दर्द व एठन को भी कम करता है. इस आसन को वो लोग न करें जिनके कमर के निचले हिस्से में चोट या स्लिप डिस्क है.

Never Ignore Back Pain In Kids And Teens!

Never Ignore Back Pain In Kids And Teens!

Over the years of adulthood, a combination of bad posture along with wear and tear means that a significant amount of the adult population is affected by back pain. But is this normal for children, as well? Well, in most cases, the answer is a 'No'.

Children and adolescents have a greater degree of flexibility than adults, that is they do not complain of back pain as much as adults do. So when should a parent be worried if their child complains of acute back pain?

If a child is very active, then this could be a cause for concern when it comes to injury to the back. Due to the rough nature of the sort of activity that he or she is engaged in, stress fractures are possible. These injuries are generally explained by overuse. What a parent needs to keep an eye out for is, if the child complains of pain when certain actions are performed. So, back pain which occurs, say, during butterfly stroke when the child swims could mean that the child has a case of spondylolysis or a stress fracture.

If the back pain is so bad that the sleep of the child is disturbed and he or she wakes up on account of it, the parent should take this seriously. The reason for this is that the pain could be caused by a tumour to the spine or an infection. A possibility apart from these two could also be arthritis.

A parent should also be worried when the back pain is not the only thing that the child complains of. That is, if there are other things such as a fever and weakness, as well as pain extending down either or both legs, it could be a sign that the trouble is more than just superficial. In a similar way, when there is trouble walking or there are problems related to the functioning of either the bowel or the bladder, a doctor is to be consulted.

One of the most common cases of back pain in children happens to be Scheuermann’s disease, which is also known as Scheuermann’s kyphosis. What this means is that the spine is rounded in the middle. While this causes pain, it is usually not debilitating enough to hinder normal movement. But, after all, who would want their child to go untreated and suffer as a result?

Suffering From Lower Back Pain - Yoga Asanas That Are Actually Good For You!

Suffering From Lower Back Pain - Yoga Asanas That Are Actually Good For You!

Lower back pain is one of the most common ailments among adults all across the world. You may wake up in the morning with an energising drink before going out to work. After you arrive at work, you may have to sit there till lunch, which involves further sitting and you are required to sit for more hours for completing the remaining work. Then you come back home by sitting in the car and have the night’s meal while again sitting. Did you know sitting through the day is the major culprit behind your back pain? Thankfully, yoga has effective ways of treating back pain to a considerable degree.

You can choose to do the following yoga poses for alleviating your back ache:

  1. Supine hamstring stretch: You will have to lie back on your back and bend the right knee to the chest. Then you will have to place a rolled-up towel around the football and straighten the leg towards the ceiling and press both the heels. In case your lower back feels strained, you can bend your left knee and place the foot right on the ground. Hold the position for about 3 to 5 minutes and practice regularly for soothing back pain.
  2. Two knee twist: You will have to bend your knees to the chest while lying on the back and try to bring out the arms forming a T-shape. Then try to exhale and lower down the knees on the ground towards your right side. Keep both the shoulders pressed down firmly and hold this position for about 2 minutes for best results.
  3. Sphinx: You will have to prop yourself on the forearms while lying on the stomach. You will then have to align the elbows right under the shoulders and press through the tops and palms of the feet. You are likely to feel terrific sensations down your lower back, but it is advised to bear through it as it allows the flow of blood to that region which is required for healing. Practice the position regularly and hold it for at least one minute.
  4. Thread the needle: This is quite an easier pose where you will have to lie flat on your back by bending both the knees with your feet flat on the ground. You will now have to bend the right knee by placing the outer left ankle through the right thigh.

Lower Back Pain - Know More About It!

Lower back pain is a very common issue and can take place due to numerous reasons. However, one of its main causes is a ligament strain or back muscle strain. Microscopic tear or excessive stretching of ligaments can take place due to lifting very heavy objects, doing enormously strenuous task or due to a sudden twisted movement. These conditions are most likely to be experienced by individuals ranging between the ages of 30 and 60. Other causes of lower back pain include back injury, arthritis of back bone joints, infections in the lower back area, and in very rare cases, tumours.

In case of acute back pain, these are a few important things that should be definitely kept in mind.

  1. It is absolutely essential to take rest for a couple of days and avoid any sort of stressful activity. Although back pain is self-limiting, if you take proper care, it can be cured in a few days. However, if proper rest is not taken, the situation may become worse.
  2. Using the black belt, also known as lumbo sacral corset, is a good idea. This can actually be of enormous help to individuals who have been suffering from lower back pain for a long period of time.
  3. As already mentioned, one of the main causes of these kinds of mishaps are sudden jerky movements, twisted movements, heavy weight lifting etc. So, it is necessary to avoid such circumstances, or else, a more acute back pain situation may arise due to slipping of one of the discs from the spinal cord.
  4. As much as you like long drives and bike rides, these are a strict no. Any prolonged sitting or standing activity needs to be avoided. It is important that the tear caused in the muscles due to what-so-ever reason heals properly and prolonged stay in a tensed muscle position would definitely not help the cause.
  5. Although these back pains can be handled at home by following the discussed steps, using simple analgesics or muscle relaxants prescribed by the doctor can be a way to speed up the process of recovering the strained ligament.

Apart from these important steps, regular exercise to strengthen the core body muscles is a great way to avoid such ligament strains in the future. However, if you feel that even after following the precautionary measures, you problem doesn’t subside, visit an experienced doctor for his advice. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
