Back-Knee-Sciatica Pain Relieve Remedies
Back pain is one of the most common reasons why people go to the doctor or miss work, and it is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. Most people have back pain at least once.
Fortunately, you can take measures to prevent or alleviate most episodes of back pain. If prevention fails, simple home treatment and good body mechanics will often heal your back and keep it functional within a few weeks.
Back pain that comes on suddenly and lasts no longer than six weeks (acute) can be caused by a fall or heavy lifting. Back pain that lasts longer than three months (chronic) is less common than acute pain.
Back pain often develops without a cause that your doctor can identify with a test or imaging test. Disorders that often accompany lower back pain are:
- Muscle or ligament strain.
- Protruding or torn discs.
- Skeletal irregularities.
Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may result from an injury, such as a torn ligament or torn cartilage. Medical conditions - including arthritis, gout, and infections - can also cause knee pain.
Many types of mild knee pain respond well to self-care measures. Physiotherapy and knee supports can also help relieve knee pain.
The location and severity of knee pain may vary depending on the cause of the problem. Signs and symptoms that sometimes accompany knee pain include:
- Swelling and stiffness
- Feel redness and warmth
- Weakness or instability
- Popping or creaking noises
- Inability to fully straighten the knee.
A number of factors can increase the risk of knee problems, including:
Being overweight. Being overweight or obese increases the stress on your knee joints, even during normal activities such as walking or climbing stairs. It also puts you at an increased risk of osteoarthritis by accelerating the breakdown of articular cartilage.
Lack of muscle flexibility or strength. A lack of strength and flexibility can increase the risk of knee injuries. Strong muscles help stabilize and protect your joints, and muscle flexibility can help you achieve complete freedom of movement.
Certain sports or professions. Some sports place more emphasis on your knees than others. Alpine skiing with its stiff ski boots and potential for falls, basketball jumps, and pivots, and repeated banging of your knees when you run or jog, all increase the risk of a knee injury. Jobs that require repeated stress on the knees, such as construction or agriculture, can also increase your risk.
Previous injury. Having a previous knee injury makes it more likely that you will injure your knee again.
