Back Pain When Changing Positions From Sitting Or Standing?
Excuse me, I want to ask. I guess what my mom has a disease and what is the solution. So it happened already this week. My mother, when she sat down, found it very difficult to stand up, she said if she was forced to stand, her back felt very painful or painful. and vice versa when it’s standing it’s hard to make it sit. sometimes mommy screams and cries. Please answer, thank you.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Back pain can be caused by several possibilities, including:
disorders of the spine, for example there is a fracture (broken / cracked) on the spine, infection of the bone, spinal displacement, posture disorders etc.
disruption to the muscles around the spine, such as tension in the muscles, muscle injury (for example there had been an accident or a previous collision)
disorders of the nerves that come out of the vertebrae, for example pinched nerves (can be due to narrowing of the vertebrae, HNP, bleeding in the spinal cord area, tumors that compress the spinal cord, etc.)
other disorders, for example there is an infection in the kidney or kidney stones
Your mother needs further examination, you should consult your mother to a general practitioner in advance so that you can know more clearly the direction of the disease and can be referred to an appropriate doctor (neurologist or orthopedic doctor for example). The doctor may recommend that tests such as CT scan or MRI be able to help make the diagnosis.
Some things your mother can do for a while:
take painkillers like paracetamol
compress the area with a warm compress
do light massage (only light, not ordered) in the area of the back that hurts
improve sitting, sleeping and standing position
Avoid lifting heavy items for a while
use a back support (for example a corset to minimize lower back movement)
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
