Dear Sagar,thanks for query.Normally at your age the cause is postural,means because of your faulty work posture back ache occurs.Still it is better that you get your self examined by your family doctor and then take any treatment.In mean time avoid excessive forward bending,do not sit on floor ,seat with proper support.bye.

General & Family Physician Dr. Tulasi Raman.P's  Response
Hi Sagar,

Low back pain in your age study is mostly due to faulty sitting posture.

My suggestion to you is:
1. Never sit in one posture for long hours.
2. Do not sit in couches and avoid well cushioned seats.
3. Always sit in a firm chair that supports your lumbar area with a pillow.This will help you to keep your waist and lower back in the proper position.
4. Regular exercise and brisk walk can help to strengthen your spine muscle and the whole vertebral coloumn.
5. Stretching and swimming will also help in relieving the back pain.

If the above measures do not relieve you of your back pain consult a physiotherapist who will teach you lower spine strengthening exercises.

Stop ayurvedic medications.
Do not take analgesics (Tab.Hifenac-P) for more than 3 days as it may cause gastritis.

Hope this helps.
