Isn’t a working woman considered to be a multitasker- a mother, a loving wife, an active socialite despite that she performs all her roles without showing that she is getting tired.

We know that stress has permeated in our lives yet women are great at balancing personal and professional life. An occasional episode of stress is manageable but if it is a recurrent feature, it can reduce creativity, judgment lapses, emotional burnout, and a host of degenerative diseases.

Which disorders can Stress Cause?

Stress can cause gynaecological disorders like Endometriosis, infertility, menstrual disorders, polycystic ovaries, breast tumours in addition to causing depression. Moreover, long working hours can often lead to hypertension, high blood pressure and heart diseases. A sedentary lifestyle can also cause spinal problems like back pain. This can be extremely painful and serious too. Dr Manish Vaish says back pain is often associated with the way our bones, muscles and ligaments in our back work.

Symptoms that can prompt you to consult a Neurologist

  • Back pain due to long hours of sitting
  • Numbness or pins-and-needles sensation in the legs or arms
  • Worsening pain while bending over or sitting down for a long time
  • Worsening pain while sneezing or coughing
  • Sensory loss because of complications
  • Balance and coordination problems

These symptoms need to be addressed by an expert neurologist but unfortunately, patients are hesitant to approach a neurosurgeon as they are apprehensive of open surgical procedures that were used traditionally.

Is there any surgery done to treat the back and neck conditions?

Recent technological advancements have made it possible to perform microendoscopic surgery (also known as Minimally Invasive Surgery) to treat most back and neck conditions. MES surgery makes small incisions, reduces pain as well as the risk of damages. It also offers faster recovery as compared to that of traditional open surgery.

Know the stress related spinal problems

In most theories of stress related to back pain, the pain cycle continues and is exacerbated because the pain causes the patient to become timid and anxious about daily activities. The pain cycle is characterised by:

  • The patient becomes limited due to the fear of pain and injury. The fear may be made worse by admonitions from doctors, family/friends to take it easy due to some structural diagnosis.
  • The limitations in movement can also lead to physical deconditioning and muscle weakening alongside reactions like social isolation, depression and anxiety.
