Pain And Soreness In The Back To The Shoulder?
Hello r nGreetings I want to ask a question, I am a woman aged 19 years and currently studying. I often feel sore in the back and shoulders so my posture is a little slouched. Maybe when I was in middle school I often carried a backpack that was quite heavy to be one of the factors. Besides that I have a height of 160 cm and weigh 50 kg, in my opinion it is considered thin, why is it because at that weight I just look straight and I also often feel tired quickly. Now what I want to ask 1) is my weight ideal and if not, do I need to gain weight? 2) how to get rid of my back and shoulder pain which often feels sore? 3) Is it necessary to improve my back posture using a support device for the shoulder blades and back so that my posture can return to ideal? 4) what sports are suitable for me to keep my body in shape but not make my body thinner? (I like basketball, is that okay?) 5) What foods should I consume more so that my body is in good shape, seeing that my daily activities are quite dense following lectures and organizations. That’s all, thank you doctor .. Wassalam
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Determining whether your weight is ideal or underweight can be done based on the body mass index (BMI) formula. This BMI is calculated by dividing body weight (in kg) by the square of height (in m). Normally, the BMI of Asians ranges from 18.5 to 22.9. When calculated based on the above calculations, your actual body weight is still classified as ideal (BMI = 19.53), not thin.
The pain and stiffness in your back to your shoulders can arise due to various factors. One of them can also be related to an abnormal shape of the spine, for example kyphosis (hunchback). In addition, the causes could also be:
Pinched spinal nerves Hypercholesterolemia (high blood cholesterol) Myalgia (muscle pain) Vitamin B1, B6, B12 deficiency Post herpetic neuralgia (post herpes pain) Rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to autoimmune disorders) Scoliosis (an abnormally curved spine to the side ) Lordosis (the shape of the spine that curves backwards abnormally) Disorders of the lungs, stomach, heart, etc. Required a thorough evaluation by a doctor through physical examination, or also support, such as X-rays, CT scans, MRI, and so on to determine whether the cause is certain of your complaints. If it is true that the cause is purely due to kyphosis, then treatment can be done in a variety of ways, from physiotherapy (including using a special spine brace), surgery, and so on according to the degree of severity of kyphosis. Therefore, check yourself directly to the doctor, ok?
No special sports are recommended or prohibited under your circumstances. However, to help reduce pain and soreness in your back to your shoulders, you can try to do more swimming, yoga, floor exercises, and so on. Basketball is okay to do as long as it does not cause significant complaints. But to be on the safe side, you should first consult your doctor.
To help keep your body fit and don't tire easily, you should eat more foods that contain high calories and protein, for example red meat, poultry, fish, tofu, tempeh, and so on. Also balance the food above with lots of vegetables, fruit, and enough water. Eat regularly, don't be late. Also rest regularly, stay away from cigarettes, and stay away from excessive stress.
Hope this helps ..
