Scientific studies have revealed that several pain conditions get aggravated in hot weather. In people who suffer from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, the heat and humidity of this weather can lead to swollen joints, leading to an increase in pain. Several other forms of pain are sensitive to humidity and ambient pressure, thus becoming stronger in summers. To add to the problems, excessive sweating can lead to dehydration and mineral imbalance, making pain situations even worse.

Drinking water not only prevents cramps, and joint pains, but also protects the body from other problems like kidney stones.

 

Exercise within limits – Regular exercise is usually recommended for people suffering from chronic pain. However, it has been observed that in summers, overexertion due to exercise can be a factor contributing towards pain. To prevent this, one must always exercise within their limits. It is advisable to exercise only indoors (in airconditioned spaces) or early in the morning, when it is cooler. Swimming & Choosing the best indoor Bike Workouts can be a good form of exercise that is recommended during summers.

Continue with your regular Pain Medications – If you’re taking regular medicines prescribed by your Pain Specialist, do continue them throughout the season. Take your doctor’s advise while changing any medicines. Warning: Take regular pain medicines only when prescribed by a Specialist. Often, self-medication on painkillers does more harm than good.

 

Visit a Pain Specialist if Pain becomes unbearable – If pain becomes unbearable despite taking these precautions, you should visit a Specialist Doctor at the earliest to get a definitive diagnosis and start your treatment. Pain is a complicated problem, and when ignored for long, it can worsen very rapidly. 

Heel Pain Treatment

Suffering for the sake of style!

But, the sad news is there are also certain side-effects of high heels that are in fact quite hampering to the health. Certain studies and researches have shown that these pointy towery footwear can badly affect your spine, ankles, knees and hips along with doing much more to your entire system. Check out in what ways high heels can be costly in more than just one way.

  • Affecting feet

Your feet generally plays the role of a spring loaded shock absorber helping to distribute your body’s weight evenly. They also help in cushioning your respective skeleton from those crazy and freaking amounts of pounding. Jamming these natural engineering marvels with high heels can shift quite a lot of your body mass to your feet’s balls as well as to your delicate toe bones. In fact, the higher you wear heels, the bigger can be the impact. As per a research, wearing only four inches of stilettos can actually up the pressure to around 30% thus placed on the front part of your foot,.

  • Affecting ankles and calves

When you wear high heels, your ankles generally bend forward. This movement can actually restrict circulation especially in your lower limbs. In case you are lover or a regular high heel wear, you can even suffer from spider veins.

Adding to that, prolonged walking in heels can even stiffen your respective Achilles tendons, thus further causing your calves to keep bunching up. Wearing tall pumps for a whole day can even create trouble for you to walk naturally. Lovers of stilettos can also develop chronically shortened and taut calf tendons and ankles thus making walking quite a lot painful, even in flats.

  • Affecting knees

As we all know, knee, the pro-shock absorber thus present in our body is the largest human joint. Its primary purpose is to take licking; however frequent usage of high heels can actually add an extra stress, especially on the inner sides of your knees, thus resulting to fast-tracking the wear and tear, which can further lead to osteoporosis.

  • Affecting back

Sashaying around in your heels also requires you to unnaturally sway your spine. This unnatural swaying away can further stress your respective lumbar erector spinae muscle, thus resulting in a sore lower back. Since your back also needs a break, wear those high pumps in one day and don your flats, especially the cushioned ones, the next. Keep your pointy spikes only for special occasions along with ensuring not to walk with them for longer periods of time.

 

Adding to all these, excess or daily usage of high heels can even result to Spondylolisthesis, especially around the lumbar region of your spine wherein the weight of your body is essentially concentrated. You can even suffer from Foraminal Stenosis, a typical spinal nerve condition occurring when anatomical abnormalities tend to block or even reduce space in either one or even more foramina. In your lower back, Foraminal Stenosis can actually result to the emergence of symptoms, basically of shooting pains, along with contributing to numbness, cramping, spasms as well as pain, radiating from the buttocks and crawling down to the legs.

 

High heels, devotees, your life and your health is yours. Thus, do think twice before you walk on those pointy ends.

What Is Slipped Disc

What is a Slipped disc and what are its Symptoms?

There are many diseases that we are completely unaware of. We don’t pay much heed to a headache, an ache in the backbone or an occasional nausea. Doctors say that most of the people tend to ignore the early symptoms of many diseases, especially those related to the nervous system. For example, the spinal condition called Slipped Disc, whose early symptoms include back pain, are ignored till the condition is critical.

What is a Slipped disc?

Slipped Disc herniation, or Slipped Disc, is a medical condition related to the spinal cord. A tear in the outer, fibrous ring of an invertebral disc allows the soft central portion to bulge out through the damaged outer rings. This occurs due to age related degeneration of the annulus fibrosus, through injuries, trauma, or straining. Tears in the fiber are postero lateral in nature due to the presence of posterior longitudinal ligament in the spinal canal. The tear in discs releases chemical mediators that swell up the region, causing pain, even in absence of nerve root compression. Technically the spinal discs don’t actually slip from the vertebrae but the central portion swells up due to the tear.

What are the symptoms?

  1. The symptoms can vary depending on location of the herniation and the type of tissue involved.
  2. It can range from little to no pain to severe and continuous neck or lower back pain that may spread to regions connected by the same nerve root that are affected by the herniation.
  3. Often patients complain of inexplicable pains in thighs, knees or feet.
  4. Some other symptoms are sensory disturbance like, numbness, tingling, muscular weakness, paralysis paresthesia, and trouble with reflexes.
  5. If the herniation is in the lumbar region, there may be sciatica caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve.
  6. The pain from this symptom is constant in a particular location. Sometimes there are almost no symptoms at all.
  7. Radiating pain can be felt in the lower part of body or both sides, in serious cases.
  8. Some permanent damages are: paralysis, loss of bowel or bladder control as well as sexual dysfunction.

Diagnosis:

Diagnosis is generally done by tests to rule out other cause like spondylolisthesis, tumors, etc.

  1. Straight leg raise is not accurate but a negative on this test rules out the possibility of a lower lumber disk herniation.
  2. X-rays are used to rule out possibilities like tumors, infections, fractures etc. It can confirm the presence of a herniated disc.
  3. MRI shows the soft tissue better than a CAT scan, which merely confirms the herniation visually. MRI provides the most conclusive evidence.
  4. EMG/MCS measure the electrical impulses. This shows whether there is damage in the nerve. This test is used to pinpoint the sources of nerve dysfunction distal to the spine.

 

In most cases a slipped disc doesn’t require surgery; physical therapy tends to cure the condition. Pain and anti-inflammatory medication and injections are given. Surgery is seen as a last resort in serious cases.
