Ankylosing spondylitis is a cause of back pain in adolescents and young adults. Ankylosing spondylitis is a form of chronic inflammation of the spine and the sacroiliac joints chronic inflammation in these areas causes pain and stiffness in and around the spine, including the neck, middle back, lower back, and buttocks. Over time, chronic inflammation of the spine (spondylitis) can lead to a complete cementing together (fusion) of the vertebrae, a process referred to as ankylosis. Ankylosis causes loss of mobility of the spine. Pt treatment deep breathing for lung expansion and stretching exercises to improve spine and joint mobility. Are also advised to sleep on a firm mattress and avoid the use of a pillow in order to prevent spine curvature. Aerobic exercise is generally encouraged as it promotes full expansion of the breathing muscles and opens the airways of the lungs. Home remidie physical therapy for ankylosing spondylitis includes instructions and exercises to maintain proper posture. This includes deep breathing for lung expansion and stretching exercises to improve spine and joint mobility. Since ankylosis of the spine tends to cause forward curvature (kyphosis), patients are instructed to maintain erect posture as much as possible and to perform back-extension exercises. Patients are also advised to sleep on a firm mattress and avoid the use of a pillow in order to prevent spine curvature. Ankylosing spondylitis can involve the areas where the ribs attach to the upper spine as well as the vertebral joints, thus limiting breathing capacity. Patients are instructed to maximally expand their chest frequently throughout each day to minimize this limitation. Physical therapists customize exercise programs for each individual. Swimming often can be a very beneficial form of exercise, as it avoids jarring impact of the spine. Ankylosing spondylitis need not limit an individual's involvement in athletics. People can participate in carefully chosen aerobic sports when their disease is inactive. Aerobic exercise is generally encouraged as it promotes full expansion of the breathing muscles and opens the airways of the lungs. Cigarette smoking is strongly discouraged in people with ankylosing spondylitis, as it can accelerate lung scarring and seriously aggravate breathing difficulties. Occasionally, those with severe lung disease related to ankylosing spondylitis may require oxygen supplementation and medications to improve breathing. People with ankylosing spondylitis may need to modify their activities of daily living and adjust features of the workplace. For example, workers can adjust chairs and desks for proper postures. Drivers can use wide rearview mirrors and prism glasses to compensate for the limited motion in the spine. You should check with your doctor before using compression socks for your swelling. These special socks should be properly fitted for you and your needs. Also, be sure to wear them during the day and remove them before you go to bed. Leg elevation if you stand a lot during the day, try propping your feet up or soaking them in water when you get home to help prevent swelling. Muscle relaxant: reduces muscle tension and helps relieve muscle pain and discomfort. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (also known as tens) is something which helps ease muscle pain and spasms. You can strengthen the muscles by doing tonificationie. Improving the tone of the muscles by adding either weight cuffs / sand bags which will help you to improve the strength of the muscle.

My father, aged 71 ha been suffering from spondylitis almost for a decade right after the retirement. Tried homeopathy but soon he stops taking the medicine, it starts again. Then visited orthopedic Dr. Who advised to do physiotherapy for the lumbar and cervical spondylitis as x-ray reports suggested. Following the same he underwent physiotherapy for a long time and eased the pain to a considerable extent. This time he is mostly troubled by the pain occurred in the face of the leg near the ankle only while walking. On 6th july it went bad to worse and had to rush to a orthopedician. But this yields no result and the pain gradually went up and now revolving around the back of the right knee (muscles/vein) for which he is not able to walk or lift/turn the body up from the bed. Matter goes bad to worse when he sits in the toilet seat and put the foot in staircase.

How long can I take finenerve ntp tablet (pregabalin 75 mg + nortriptyline 10 mg) for nerve pain related to cervical spondylitis? I have taken the medicine initially for 10 days.

Please tell me the dose and duration of this medicine, if I need to continue it for several months in a year?

Instead of taking saaz ds in more dosage you can add a different drug to control your symptoms. That will be more logical and safe.

1. Do saline gargles daily (preferably twice). 2. Whenever possible do steam inhalation also. 3. Cover your nose and mouth with hanky for at least 30 sec when you go in dusty areas also when you go in and out of ac. As our nose is the most sensitive part of our body, when there is temperature difference between two rooms or inside n outside, then if we not protect our nose, it gets affected. 4. Drink hot liquids --hot liquids relieve nasal congestion, prevent dehydration, and soothe the uncomfortably inflamed membranes that line your nose and throat. 5. Sleep with an extra pillow under your head-- elevating your head will help relieve congested nasal passages. If the angle is too awkward, try placing the pillows between the mattress and the box springs to create a more gradual slope. 6. Treat that stuffy nose with warm salt water-- salt-water rinsing helps break nasal congestion, while also removing virus particles and bacteria from your nose. 7. Blow your nose often (and the right way)-- it's important to blow your nose regularly when you have a cold rather than sniffling mucus back into your head. But when you blow hard, pressure can carry germ-carrying phlegm back into your ear passages, causing earache. The best way to blow your nose: press a finger over one nostril while you blow gently to clear the other. Homeopathic treatment has very encouraging results. Consult online for details.

They both are pretty much B complex vitamins. They are psychological medications. So nothing much to worry. Just take any of the above tab .
