LOW BACK PAIN AND SCIATICA CAN EFFECTIVELY BE TREATED BY CHIROPRACTORS!

Sciatica (pain along the large sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back down to the foot) is a relatively common form of low back and leg pain. If you are suffering and need Sciatics pain treatment, you need to undertand the cause of the pain and what Sciatica is! Lets first get an insight into Sciatica and understand how Chiropractor in Gurgaon can help you ease this issue. Sciatica is usually caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve from a herniated or bulging disc. Discs act as cushions or shock absorbers between spinal vertebrae. These discs also create proper spacing for pairs of nerves to exit the spine and connect to different parts of the body. The outer wall of the disc is made up of cartilage, while the centre is jelly-like. Due to trauma or repetitive wear and tear, the inner disc material can leak out, pushing and inflaming the sciatic nerve where it exits the spine. Other factors causing compression of the sciatic nerve include: arthritic bone spurs, muscles, thinning of the discs, or misaligned vertebrae.

For some people, the pain from sciatica can be severe and debilitating. For others, the pain might be infrequent and just irritating. One or more of the following may occur as a result of sciatica: burning, tingling or shooting pain, weakness, and a decrease in sensation in the buttocks, leg, and/or foot.

While sciatica and disc disease can be serious and ultimately require surgery, a great majority of cases can be successfully treated through Chiropractic care. Chiropractors are specially trained to detect and remove spinal nerve irritation by way of spinal adjustments and decompression technologies.  The approach should be: Chiropractic first, risky drugs second, and surgery last. Drugs have side effects, and surgery yields mixed results. Chiropractic is safe, gentle, and highly effective.

5 Moves To Maintain A Stronger Back

We all know how miserable back pains can be. Every movement our body makes will need your back in some way or the other; hence a back pain or discomfort can challenge our routine and life in general. According to researches, certain exercises strengthen the back muscle can help prevent or alleviate lower back pain. With the help of physiotherapy exercises, we do back pain treatment. Exercise also strengthens the legs and arm muscles. Regular exercises lead to increased blood flow to the lower back area, which can reduce stiffness. We have put together a list of 5 back moves you can do for your overall strength and performance.

Before that, you need to understand that primary muscles in the back include.

  • Lats, located in the area below the armpits
  • Traps, from neck to mid-back
  • Rhomboids, mid-upper back
  • Erector spine, muscles that run along our spine

All the exercises mentioned below target these muscles and help strengthen them and slow depreciation that comes with age.

Warm-ups

5 to 10 minutes of cardio can get your blood pumping and will start to awaken the muscles. After this, 5 minutes of stretching sequence will prepare your back for exercises. Please keep in mind that in case these moves cause you pain, you should stop what you are doing and rest. You may consult with the best orthopedic doctor in Gurgaon if this pain is consistent or targets a specific area.

Bridges

The bridge strengthens your low back and hip muscles, helping stabilize your spine. To perform Bridges:

  • Lay down on your back and keep your arms by your side.
  • Knees should be bent, and feet should be flat on the floor.
  • After this, slowly raise your hips off the floor while contracting your Glutes (buttocks) and your Hamstrings.
  • Hold for 5 seconds and release.
  • Repeat 5 to 10 times.

Knee to Chest stretches

This exercise can help elongate the lower back and relieves tension and pain. For your safety, start doing this exercise with one leg only. If, after a few days, you are able to perform it without pain, you can move ahead by lifting both the legs. To perform:

  • Lie down on your back
  • Bend knees while keeping both feet flat on the ground
  • Use both hands to pull one knee in toward the chest.
  • Hold it for 5 seconds, keeping the abdominals tight and pressing the spine into the floor.
  • Return your leg to the floor.
  • Repeat on the other side.
  • Repeat with each leg 5-7 times daily.

Lying Lateral leg lifts

This exercise works on the hip abductor muscles. These muscles support the pelvis and can also reduce the strain on the back. Side leg raises work the glutes, hips, and thighs. They can be done standing up or lying down. To perform:

  • Lie on one side with legs together.
  • Put lower led slightly bend
  • Draw the belly button into the spine to engage the core muscles.
  • Raise the top leg about 20 inches, keeping it straight and extended.
  • Hold the position for 5 seconds.
  • Repeat 3-5 times.
  • Turn onto the other side of the body and repeat, lifting the other leg.
  • Perform 2 sets on each side. 

Partial curls

Strong abdominal muscles play a vital role in supporting the spine and can also help keep the hips properly aligned. Weak abdominals can result in poor core strength and lack of stability. Curls and partial curls help build a stronger back. To perform:

  • Lie back on the floor and bend the knees, keeping the feet flat and hip-width apart.
  • Cross your arms loosely over chest
  • Tighten your abdomen and curl halfway up, keeping your head in line with your shoulders.
  • Hold for 3 seconds. Uncurl to lie down.
  • Repeat 2 sets of 5 routines.

Supermans

Hitting the core (including lower back), Supermans is deceivingly hard. Weak back extensors can reduce spinal and pelvic support but doing this exercise can help. To perform:

  • Lie face down on an exercise mat with your toes pointed down and your forehead on the floor.
  • Bring your arms straight out in front of you with your palms on the floor
  • Engaging your back and hamstrings, lift your hands and feet a few inches off the ground.
  • Repeat 10 times, holding for 5 seconds each time.

Performing exercises helps in preventing injuries, increase stability and provide more flexibility to the body. People with back pains should always pay attention to their postures while sitting etc. and also on how they carry heavy objects, to identify movements that can lead to more pain. Anyone with back pain can try gentle stretches and exercises but should be careful if there is discomfort or pain, in which case its best to consult an Orthopaedist for back pain treatment.

At Orthocure, we believe in treating your issues from the root with an integrated treatment that includes intuitive diagnostics, pain relief and treatment of the root cause. Coupled with good postural habits, you are able to see visible results in a short span of time. If you are looking for an Orthopaedic Doctor, come; find an Orthopaedic Clinic near you.

5 Shocking Ways Smartphones Affect Your Health & Well Being

With the advent of advanced technology, there is a continuous growth in the number of mobile users. In India, more than 50 crore people are using smartphones. In 2020, the number of global smartphone users is projected to total 3.5 billion, which is approximately 9.3 percent increase from 2019.

In this digital era, need smartphones at work, for learning and also to maintain a social life. However, too much of anything, they say, is not good. Say. For example, too many chocolates can expedite diabetes, or too much salt can lead to blood pressure issues. Similarly, too much use of cell phones also causes a range of health problems. In this blog, we highlight some damaging health effects caused by excessive use of smartphones:

Musculoskeletal Problems

The excessive use of smartphones can cause back problems. These days even young people experience back pain issues, many due to excessive smartphone use.These back pain issues can be resolved by back pain treatment. Based on a study, approximately 45 % of young people between the age of 16 and 25 years face musculoskeletal problems. Moreover, excessive use of smartphones can also cause “text claw,” a typical pain in the muscle of fingers and wrists.

Nerve Damage

A recent study revealed that the overuse of smartphones develops “occipital neuralgia.” In this neurological condition, nerves that link your head and spine are either inflamed or compressed.

Weight Gain

If you tend to spend hours on smartphones, of course, you also miss on your physical activities or exercises. Over a period, this leads to more inactivity and can add to your weight gain. As smartphones are becoming a vital part of work life and the preferred source of entertainment, it is changing the way we live. According to a study, a person who uses smartphones for more than five hours a day is at risk of obesity and heart diseases. Weight gain by itself can cause a range of muscle and bone issues, a common one being knee pain. Your knees hold your weight, hence any additional weight you carry around will affect the knees. We provide proper knee pain treatment at our clinic.

Vision Problems

Normally, we blink 15 times per minute, but this decreases when we stare at our smartphones more often. As we spend more time on these small screens, our facial and shoulder muscles tighten, eyes get tired, and vision can be blurred. Excessive use of smartphones can also lead to retinal damage or muscular degeneration in the eye.

Sleep deprivation

According to the latest study, three- fourths of the world’s population sleep either holding their smartphones, or having it next to them near the pillow or on their nightstand. In another study, researchers found that around 40 percent of teenagers sleep less than 7 hours a night. Smartphones emit blue light, which is a type of light that our brain interprets as daylight. This light suppresses melatonin (hormone that affects circadian rhythm and helps in sleeping), thus leading to sleep deprivation and irregular sleep cycles.

Apart from the above-mentioned issues, there are many other health problems related to excessive use of smartphones. It can cause stress and depression, poor concentration in work, violent behavior, decreased social interaction, etc. We need to limit the use of smartphones.

What is a chiropractor?

A Doctor of Chiropractic is neuromusculoskeletal specialist with specialization in spinal disorders who treats the patient using advanced chiropractic adjustments either manually or with a chiropractic adjuster.

Chiropractic Health Care is a practice that dates to 125 years.  It was discovered after a deaf man began to hear after treatment to his neck!

Chiropractors go through a great deal of education and training to get their Doctor of Chiropractor degree.  This education involves a 4-years program including residency after a 3-4-years university program.

How can a chiropractor help you?

Physical, chemical and emotional stresses build up in the human body and manifest in the spine as an area of extreme tension and stress, this is called vertebral subluxation complex (VSC).  This is where joints in our spine lose their normal movement and alignment, creating abnormal pressure on the nerve that exits that level and initiates stress hormone, cortisol, to be released into our body. The weight equivalent to that of a small coin on a nerve can reduce the nerves flow by 60%!  If the joint has locked out of proper alignment, nerve flow from the brain, down the spine, out to the organs and body will be reduced, and our health decreases.  High cortisol levels, shut down our immune system, gastrointestinal system, and reproductive systems first, followed by other body systems causing sickness, pain and other symptoms.   If the brain communicates better with the rest of the body and gives it proper instruction as it is designed to, your body works better!  It is the secret to improving every aspect of your health and well-being.

There is a tremendous amount of research proving chiropractic improves every aspect of your health, by increasing the nervous system function.

How does a chiropractor treat a patient?

Chiropractors are specially trained to diagnose and treat all nerve, muscle, tissue, and joint problems arising from the spine.  This is done through a highly specific, safe and effective treatment called the “chiropractic adjustment”.   The adjustment is a gentle yet specific movement into a spinal joint that has lost its normal motion. Treatments can be done through mechanical instruments or by hand.  The chiropractic treatment is unlike any other and can only be done with extensive training.  Unfortunately, patients will not know that they have subluxations as they are often painless.  Only when the body can no longer cope, symptoms begin to get noticed.

Chiropractic is useful for pain relief and wellness care.  It is both curative and preventive.  As dental checkups and cleaning are necessary for the prevention of tooth decay, regular, periodic adjustments prevent spinal decay.  Everyone with a spine needs chiropractic.

What are the conditions treated by a chiropractor?

Chiropractors are known best for treating

  • Neck pain

Leading Back Pain Treatment in Gurgaon

According to a survey, about 80% of people experience back pain due to some reason. Lifestyle and posture are the major culprits behind the increasing incidence of back pain among common population. In end of this article, we will go through how Orthocure can help in lower back pain treatment in Gurgaon.

The root source of lower back pain can be either mechanical or soft tissue injury with varied repercussions like muscular imbalance, disc herniation, postural misalignment, hypo-mobility of joints or nerve root compression.

It is not a disease but our lifestyle plays a vital role in it. Back ache is one of the consequences of our lifestyle. It can happen to anybody at any age irrespective of the size and gender of an individual. It can be due to prolonged sitting in a wrong posture, sleeping in an uncomfortable position, lifting heavy weights, overuse of certain muscles, lack of physical activity and in-equivalent distribution of weight while standing. The reasons can be uncountable.

Lifestyle is one of the primary reasons for back ache. For instance, individuals working for IT establishments have to maintain awkward static postures for prolonged duration repetitively. Their wrong postures and prolonged sitting will inevitably result in back pain.

Similarly, house-makers who over stress their muscles most of the times while performing household chores predispose themselves to this condition.

Further, elderly people have increased chances of back pain due to degenerative disorders and decreasing strength.

The entire back, starting from the base of the head till the tail bone is one unit and pain can affect any specific component of the mammoth unit due to infinite reasons.

Structure of Back Pain

The human back has a complex structure of muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones, and disks. All these parts work together to enable the human body to work and support the body posture.

The spine is made up of vertebrae and in between the vertebrae there is a gel like substance called the “disc “which acts like a cushion and shock absorber against forces on our spine. Any damage to the disc can lead to backache.We should always take care of a few things like correct body posture, proportionate weight bearing on both feet, avoid over straining muscles etc.

What are the Symptoms of Back Pain?

  • Discomfort in the back leading to pain that can further radiate to the legs and feet
  • Uncomfortable to sit or stand-up straight properly.
  • Numbness or tingling in legs.
  • Pain may increase due to prolonged sitting.
  • Tenderness over certain points
  • Pain while taking sides, stiffness while getting up from bed in the morning
  • Increase in pain on bending, walking, prolonged standing or lifting
  • Difficulty in carrying out activities of daily living
  • Loss of sensation and urinary incontinence in severe cases

You should consult the doctor when the above symptoms become chronic.

Initially, people prefer to use pain relief sprays, pain killer medications or hot oil massages but this might or might not help to alleviate the root cause of pain.

What are the Causes behind Back Pain?

Back pain may be caused due to several reasons like structural, mechanical or soft tissue problems. Let’s know about these causes one by one:

Disc Injury

Discs are the shock absorber gel like cushions between each vertebra and generally, disc injury can be the major reason for back pain.

Arthritis

If there is damage or loss in the cartilage of joints in the lower back may lead to back pain.

Sciatica

If you are suffering from pain in the leg or numbing or tingling, this can be due to the pressing of a nerve by a bulging disc which is known as Sciatica.

Osteoporosis

Thinning of bones or loss of bone density makes bones very weak and brittle leading to severe back pain

Slipped or ruptured disc

It can compress any nerve from its root while it exits from the spinal cord leading to pain in the course of the nerve

Scoliosis

When spine curves to a side in an unusual way it may result to back pain.

Poor posture & Activities 

Back pain can also trigger from everyday activities and poor postures like

  • Bending awkwardly
  • Inappropriate sleeping mattresses that harm our spine
  • Carrying or lifting heavyweights
  • Overstretching and muscles strain
  • Sitting in a wrong posture for long duration

Twisting at a certain angle along with bending forward or backward

MEDICAL CONDITIONS

Referred Pain

Acidity or stomach ache can also mimic pain in the upper back. Similarly, presence of kidney stones or any renal infection refers to the lower back pain

Tuberculosis of the Spine

Medically known as Pott’s disease also symptomizes as localized back pain, muscular spasm along with tenderness.

Cauda Equina Syndrome

This condition refers to the damage caused to the bundle of nerves at the end of spinal cord. This produces low back pain which radiates to the legs and can even cause bladder and bowel incontinence.

What Factors Trigger Back Pain

The sedentary lifestyle always has its side effects on our health. Poor physical fitness and medical conditions can develop back pain. Other factors are

  • Old age
  • Overweight/obesity
  • Physical Inactivity
  • Various diseases like arthritis etc.
  • Improper way of lifting weights
  • Smoking

In the case of women, pregnancy may be a factor. Stress, anxiety, mood swings due to hormonal changes may cause backache.

People should always consult or take medical care if the condition gets chronic before any serious illness.

Diagnosis of Back Pain

After asking the symptoms and physical examinations diagnose the cause of back pain. Other methods to detect the actual cause behind the symptoms are

X-Ray

Detects any misalignment of the bones, presence of degenerative changes, broken bones

MRI

If the issue is related to muscles, torn ligaments or tendons, nerve compression, disc bulge; MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) helps to detect the actual cause.

EMG

This is often used to check the electrical activity of the muscles in cases of neuro-muscular abnormalities.

How different Medical Experts Diagnose and Cure Back Pain

Osteopath

Target the whole body as one unit by focusing on bones, muscles, fascia, joints and spine holistically.

Physio-Therapist

By doing physical examinations and manual tests a physiotherapist will diagnose the root cause behind the pain. A physiotherapist might choose various modes of treatment depending upon the condition of the patient ranging from conventional physiotherapy techniques like Ultrasound therapy, TENS, IFT to advanced maneuvers like dry needling, myocardial release etc.

Chiropractor

Usually treat the mechanical disorders in the musculus skeletal system by manual mobilization techniques and making adjustments.

You must take a proper X Ray before you visit a chiropractor in Gurgaon.

Other Treatment Methods

  • Generally, back pain at initial stages can be relieved by using pain relief gels, ointments, and Anti-inflammatory drugs like NSAIDs.
  • Subsequently, when pain becomes severe then Cortisone injections can be used to reduce/relieve back pain.
  • Acupuncture which is a natural process to reduce pain in the body. By pressing pressure points on the body pain can be reduced.
  • We all know the benefits of Yoga. Many Yoga poses/exercises like Spinal twist,child pose, etc help to reduce pain and strengthen muscles. Yoga is very beneficial for a healthy body and mind. We should include “yoga” in our daily life.
  • In some rare cases, surgery is required. In that case, the patient should consult a surgeon.

But as back pain mostly mechanical in origin, a combination of treatment offered by a physiotherapist and chiropractor produces best results.

(b)       Take a healthy and nutritious diet.

(c)       Keep your body posture correct especially while you are sitting or sleeping.
