Dr. Patli Pathak: Long working hours are giving you pain means your muscles are in one position for a long time period. Take break after every one and a half hour, get up from your place move around for 10 min,give good stretch to muscles around neck, upper back, lower back ,legs and hands.
Dr. Patli Pathak: Physiotherapy has come long way and many techniques have been developed and most important your body has been designed to heal by itself as long as you got to know what to do and what not to do to strengthen that body part. If needed we ask you to use things available at home .For e.g tennis ball, hand-towel, dupatta etc.
Dr. Patli Pathak :There are many reasons of low back pain. We need to check first whether the reason is muscle or disc. Accordingly we decide stretching and strengthening.

Dr. Patli Pathak :There will be tightness and some trigger points will be there, release them, apply ice pack on painfully areas. Than you also need to check whether you have pain in muscles down the elbow also if yes release them.
Dr. Patli Pathak :Our body is made up of many big and small muscles and joints which will work only if we are active. Most of us are living sedentary life. For e.g long hours in front of laptop, mobile, or t.v.
