    What I'd like to tell my patients

    A lifestyle transformation has given rise to new habits, which have adversely affected our wellbeing. Sitting for long hours at work or excessive exercising has resulted in a lot of young adults seeking orthopaedic consultations. In such cases, spine ailments can be prevented by altering certain habits.

    For me, it is very important to diagnose the root cause of the problem before beginning any treatment or surgery. Patients often look for an instant relief for their pain. While we understand the urgency, time needs to be given for the correct diagnosis of the problem. Several factors need to be considered, including history of previous illnesses. A thorough investigation needs to be carried out. Each case is unique and merely prescribing pain killers without properly delving into the cause of the problem may serve to be ineffective and in some cases even counterproductive.

    Independent of age I recommend exercise to all my patients. Resting to combat back pain may seem like the natural thing to do, however, exercise creates flexibility and improves the threshold of patients to cope with pain. If the correct exercises are done appropriately it can go a long way solving your problems.
