Persistent back pain, stiffness, unable to bend easily. Work on computers. Any permanent cure ?

Hello Sir, I am having persistent back pain for last two three years now. From last one year it has increased manifold. I feel a lot of stiffness in the back, am not able to bend fully unless I do some warm up. Every morning leaving the bed is a challenge, basically things are not as I would like them to be. In the past I consulted an ortho surgeon who advised me to take milk and calcium tablets daily and also do stretching exercises. I tried it for a while, but honestly I could not maintain the discipline and gave up after a while. As for the tablets; They don t really excite me . I really want to come out of my present situation. Kindly show me the way. Regards AAAAA P.S. - I am in the IT industry and work on the computer for long hours, many a times without a break.

Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response

Thanks for posting on HealthcareMagic.

After reading your symptoms i feel that you need to incorporate certain things in your daily schedule:
1. spinal extension exercises, which your doctor had suggested earlier. You must start with them again on a regular basis.
2. local analgesic ointment: If the pain is more, apllication of any local analgesic ointment will relieve/subdue the pain.
3. Lie on hard bed while sleeping
4. Physiotherapy: Getting few sessions of physiotherapy will definitely make you feel much better and once you exercise as well the problem should resolve.
5. Take walking breaks after every 2 hours while working, stretch and bend if possible to relieve the tension in the lower back.

If, after following above mentioned routine, the pain still persists then you must get an Xray spine done and revisit your orthopedic surgeon for clinical examination.

Hope you feel better soon.
