Ask Dr. Foster
Q: ICE or HEAT?
A: When it comes to neck and back pain, try ice first. Inflammation around a stressed spine and soft tissues
is the result of friction, pressure and pulling around the joint. When you take Ibuprofen, Aleve, steroids, or other anti-inflammatory drugs to eliminate swelling... it decreases pain. Likewise, ice decreases swelling and is safe and effective treatment for neck and back pain. Ice helps pump the inflammation out of the area, As the tissue cools, the body sends in fresh blood to warm the area, and this promotes healing.
Q: My neck hurts and it's hard to sit up straight after a day at the computer. I Can't help slumping. What's up?
A: The computer age has brought with it many changes in the ergonomics of desk work. Commonly called "tech neck", the head forward slump so commonly seen with computer and smart phone use is causing a new kind of neck and back pain. Spinal manipulation can help mitigate the postural deformity that the spine undergoes over time. Additionally, I teach my patients a posture awareness and strengthening program based on the work of Dr. Steve Weininger, called Posture Zone. It is a 7-step program that will change the way you think about posture.
Q: Why does my low back hurt when I sit ?
A: More than other positions, sitting puts the most pressure on the low back causing spinal compression and sometimes pain and stiffness. Try alternating between sitting and standing desks and altering the tilt and height of your desk chair to re-distribute weight on the lower spine. Set a timer to stand and walk for 30 seconds every 30 minutes. It only takes a minute to unload the back pressure.
The simple act of arising from a chair improperly can injure your low back. The following tips can help you minimize strain when you stand up. First, slide forward so that only your tailbone is on the front of the chair. Spread your feet slightly more than shoulder-width. Lean forward, but be sure not to bend your back, as you tighten your abdominal muscles. Thrust your hips forward and stand up. When available, use armrests to help push. Watch this:
LBP with Sciatica. Pain that travels past the knee down the back of the leg often to the ankle or foot is frequently referred to as sciatica. This may include: a) pain that is longer lasting rather than flaring up for a few days or one to two weeks; b) pain may be greater in the leg than the low back; c) pain is commonly on one side; d) pain is worsened by sitting and or bending ; e) symptoms often include pain, in addition to numbness/tingling, and/or burning; f) muscle damage and weakness on the involved leg may occur as well.
