Back Pain is one of the most common problem faced by the office going executives. Long hours of sitting on desks with poor posture results in deformity in the spine which results in back pain. Most common back pain is either in the cervical region (neck) or the lumber region (lower back). The symptoms of back pain are pain in the lower back region which may or may not radiate into the legs. Lack of exercise makes the paraspinal muscles weaker and they are unable to support the spine. This results in either disc problems where the soft material between the vertebrae starts protruding outside cause compression on the nerve roots which causes the pain sensation. If the problem is identified at an early stage and proper physiotherapy is done then the condition can be reversed. However if the condition is ignored then the patient might have to get surgery done to treat back pain which is never a desirable option.
The pain in the cervical region mostly radiates into the arms and causes lack of sensation in the hands. This is a clear sign of some problem in the cervical spine area. The best diagnosis for this is made on an MRI Scan which clearly shows if there is any kind of disc protrusion and nerve root compression. Any deformity in the Cervical spine area can be corrected through phyiotherapy if the treatment starts early but if the condition is ignored for a longer time then the non surgical option might not be available to the patient. Exercises prescribed by the physiotherapists have great benefits if done properly and regularly. In order to avoid these conditions one must avoid sitting on chair for a long period of time and keep the correct posture while sitting whether in the office or at home. Cleaning the cobwebs on the home ceiling is a great exercise for your spine.
The cost of back pain or neck pain treatment is quite cheap if the problem is tackled at an early stage. The cost of MRI investigations would be in the range of Rs. 7000 - 10000 while the cost of physiotherapy would be another 15- 20 thousand even if the treatment lasts for a month. However if this stage is crossed and surgery is required then the cost would be in the range of 1.5 - 2.5 lacs Indian Rupees.
Dr Yash Fauzdar is considered as one of the best doctor when it comes to the treatment of Back Pain and Neck Pain without surgery.
