Lower Back Pain - How Does Physiotherapy Cure It?

Lower back pains may underline a host of diseases, some of the most distinctive being the degeneration of lumbar disc and strain of back muscles. If left unattended, these acute durations of severe pain can lead to further complications, beyond the scope of both active and passive physical treatment regimes. Hence, it is always recommended to attend to these minuscule symptoms as soon as they are detected.

How physiotherapy works wonders in lower back pains:

  1. Physiotherapy is recommended when lower back pains are frequent, or stretch for days at a time. Most medical literatures, which shower their unanimous support in favour of physiotherapy for back pain, make note that physiotherapy relieves pain, as well as improves the functions, which are most likely to be affected by this disorder.
  2. Pain emanating, following a surgery, is recognized as one of the most significant aspects where benefits of physiotherapy are more visible. Generally, patients are advised to undergo physiotherapy sessions after surgical procedures irrespective of age and gender, unless the move is contraindicated in specific cases.
  3. Muscular spasms and muscle shrinking is a highly familiar phenomenon observed in individuals who are relatively less active. Muscle shrinking can often be attributed to very low usage of certain muscles, while muscle spasmcan occur when neurons at the affected muscles are irritated. Physiotherapy is observed as both the first line as well as the second line of treatment regimen in such occurrences; a routine for gradual and slow stretching is recommended by physiotherapists involving the muscles of legs, hips, abdomen and lower back, based on their intensity of pain.
  4. Advanced stages of a physiotherapy treatment regime upgrade the simple stretching exercises to more rigorous ones like specific stabilizing drills, exercises involving balancing machines and/or exercise balls. This aspect of physiotherapy caters to the secondary spine muscles of the human body.
  5. The area of the body considered to be the core of lower back pain (lower back muscles and muscles of abdomen) requires more than just stretching or exercises involving machines. Workout focused on these core areas are based on a complex set of exercises, which may have to be improvised such that the aforementioned muscles absorb the maximum shock.
  6. In addition to these conventional exercises, which are based on applications of gravity, some centres offer a different environment for individuals who are unable to perform activities in normal conditions. The concept of aquatic pools addresses the issue, and makes exercising quite an easy feat for the physically challenged individuals.

It's been three months since I have been taking spine tb medicine. 4 months before I was suggested to take mri and my doctor told me there is only traces of pus in bone now. But the problem is I still feel pain in my back whenever I walk for long time and sit for more than 20 minutes. What should I do now? Even I have not started my regular life till due to pain. Can there be any complication. Please suggest clearly.

ATT is usually taken for 8-10 months. Feeling of well being is the biggest parameter of effectively of the therapy. Other lab parameters like ESR, CRP done repeatedly also guide in determining the effectivity of treatment. Keeping all these in mind you should gradually return to usual activities.

Hello, My Name is Sai prasad, 27 years old. My query is something different. I have been masturbating since I was 12 and till my 22 I masturbated or ejaculated at least 2 times a day, after 22 to now I have masturbated and ejaculated 5 times a week. Please advise does it decreases my sexual stamina or increases back pain Or lowers testosterone levels? If yes, then how much time does it takes to recover my sperm count lost all these years or does avoiding masturbating increases testosterone levels.

Hello- The biggest effect of over masturbation is mental rather than physical effect, as person in habit of it gradually shifts away from normal intercourse and finds masturbation more satisfactory and pleasurable than normal sexual act. People in habit of it always seek few moments of the loneliness to masturbate, even slightest arousal can make them fully aroused and they may feel the urge to discharge soon. This kind of situation can promote problems in the person body like low libido or can say loss of sexual desire, ED and lack of orgasm. Other then these problems people having the habit of masturbation may face the problems like prostatitis, weakness in nervous system,malfunctioning of liver, sperm leakage, early ejaculation, sexual exhaustion, impotence ,low sperm count and many more other general body weakness. Completely Herbal Supplements designed for alleviating the ill effects of over masturbation contain rich herbs and natural substances which can cast all round healing effects to cure the problems.Although there are many products available in the market claiming to be safe and effective but not all are trustworthy, only products with all herbal ingredients and having right herbs which are capable and trusted to cure the problem shall be used.

Hello lybrate-user, Yes, it is suggestive of classic back pain where your IV disc of the spine is slipping posterior, i.e. The jelly like structure between your disc is slipping out of its normal borders. This could be a clear case of PIVD (posterior inter-vertebral disc involvement) with no slipping from the sides of the disc. To begin with, avoid sitting with crossed legs and on a chair for a few days until your pain intensity is reduced. This is to avoid hitting your jelly like disc and prevent it slipping more posterior (backwards) towards the spine. This can cause more pain and might extend up to hips, legs or foot. 1. Tuck your stomach inside for about 20 percent in without holding your breath. This activates main core muscle which was hidden due to pain history. Repeat 10 reps for about 5-6 times/day 2. Standing position: Extend your back backwards without bending your neck to avoid over pressure with your hands on your hips. Gently and slowly do this exercise to push that disc back into this place. Avoid clenching your buttocks and maintain a minimum basic distance between your feet. Repeat 10 reps for 6 times/day 3. Lie on your back and lift your hips off the bed with your hands by your side. This is a bridege-like exercise in sections. I.e. Lift your hips first followed by stomach followed by chest up in a slow and controlled manner till the point of pain. If you feel better and back pain level goes down then kindly keep going and repeat 10 reps for 5 times/day. ** Exercise ball: Try to sit on a ball with a good core balance (tuck tummy in) and legs apart as per the requirement. Kindly do exercise no 1** (tummy tuck) while sitting on it and move your pelvis/hip forwards and backwards without moving any other PART OF YOUR BACK, CHEST OR STOMACH- (LIKE A CAT AND CAMEL) ** If pain arises from back or anywhere else then stop the exercise immediately and lie down on your back with 2 pillows under your knees to relax your tight muscle behind the thighs which often pulls out leading to back pain** Kindly perform these exercises and update me further regarding your pain status. Double check with ball exercise in front of mirror to avoid mistakes and feel free to ask any queries. Take care, Thank you.

Hi, My mom age is 65 years. She is getting low back pain. Used many pain killers. nothing effect.
She needs to see a spine surgeon. Needs X ray clinical examination and MRI. Most likely shall need a surgery. But first show a spine surgeon.
