Hello doctor,

I have a back pain. It just started while I was playing Foosball. The pain goes down to my left thigh, hamstring area, towards the left side of the left knee and to the ankle. I have also got twinging and numb little toe finger on my left foot. I am only applying Volini ointment for pain relief. But it has been about two weeks now.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your concern.

I would suggest you get an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) done of your low back.

As your complaints are suggestive of disc involvement, I would like to rule that out.

I would like to know further details like pain character and movements that cause pain and relief. How does the pain behave at night and in the early morning?

As of now, I would like you to do:

  1. Lot of icing on your low back.
  2. Avoid forward bending movements and lifting weights.
  3. Do core stability exercises.
  4. Do glute stability exercises.
  5. Do spine extension exercises.

Kindly revert with the MRI of the lower back for detailed discussion and rehabilitation plan for complete recovery.

Hope this is helpful for you.
