Hernia of the spine and its types
Intervertebral hernia is a disease of the bones and muscles of the person, which arises from the fact that purposee the nucleus of the intervertebral disc changes its location (i.e., shifted) and the fibrous ring loses its integrity (breaking up).
For the prevention and treatment of HERNIA in our constant reader uses the increasingly popular NON-surgical method of treatment is recommended by leading German and Israeli orthopedists. Thoroughly acquainted with him, we decided to offer it to your attention.
This disease is, according to statistics, the most common of emerging diseases in the musculoskeletal system. As much as it was developed – the disease itself is not fatal. However, its presence is always associated with a sense of physical discomfort manifested in different ways, depending on the specifics of each case. In addition, herniation of the spine can make a person disabled.
Experts klassificeret hernia nature of occurrence (primary and secondary) and by location (cervical, lumbar and thoracic sections).
If a person has a healthy spine, but as a result of trauma or too much load appeared hernia, it refers to the primary.
If the spine has already been observed pathology, the development of which led to the hernia, it is secondary.
They characterize the hernia in different parts of the spine:
- Cervical – pain in the neck, it can move into the shoulders or even hands and fingers numb, the pressure increases. Also symptoms are headaches and dizziness. Cervical hernias occur less frequently other.
- Thoracic – pain in the chest. Typically, when such hernia patients are trying to change the position of the body to weaken her, and it helps them. But keep in mind that some of the poses contribute to the curvature of the spine.
- Lumbar – pain in the back. Fast movement, any load – all of this increases the pain. Symptoms – the pain experienced in the legs, they can numb. It lumbar hernia, in severe cases, causes paralysis. And in fact, of lumbar herniation is the most common.
Pain is the main symptom of intervertebral hernia.
The condition of the body and spine hernia is characterized by:
- a feeling of discomfort in the lower back;
- aching pain that may occur with periods.
- with a long presence in a sitting or standing position significantly increases;
- lying down felt a noticeable relief;
- man walks with a limp;
- total muscle relaxation;
- pelvic organs begins to suffer;
- weakened potency.
These symptoms disturb many people, but their significance is underestimated, usually associated with what is “overextended”, and this justifies their presence. Thereby postponed the visit to the doctor. He is accosted in an extreme case, when the pain is unbearable and is already severely hampered in everyday life and at work.
However, if not timely to see a specialist, the hernia will exclusively develop, causing more inconvenience. Therefore, it is recommended to go for examination without delay as soon as the show signs.
A neurologist, that’s who performs the diagnostics of intervertebral hernia.
It provides direction on magnetic resonance imaging, which is well defined:
- the presence of hernias and their location;
- the width of the spinal canal;
- is there an inflammatory process;
- other characteristic pathology.
MRI of the spine
The sooner and more accurately will be performed this kind of diagnosis, the greater the chances of a successful short-term treatment.
Treatment of herniated lumbar
If it is determined that the patient has a hernia, your doctor may suggest two solutions to this problem. This operation (in case of urgent need) and medical therapy (if it is possible to avoid surgery).
Therapeutic methods of treatment of intervertebral hernia are the following:
Therapeutic exercises – helps strengthen the right muscles, the General tone of the body, increases the body’s ability to fight disease. You should apply this method with the consultation of the doctor as some exercise is good for the prevention of a healthy person, can only worsen the condition of patient with hernia.
Manual therapy and acupuncture. These methods achieved relief of pain decrease pressure on the vertebrae weakens. But you need to keep in mind that these methods do not solve the problem that caused the herniation.
Physical therapy – applying complex massage treatments, reflexology, stretching and ultrasound, specialists strive for the treatment of intervertebral hernias without risk to the patient.
Since many therapeutic procedures are unavailable for financial reasons, or because of lack of time, and some cannot be done at home, many experts suggest to use an adaptive gymnastics Bubnovsky.
Professor Sergey Bubnovsky once he injured his back and had a disappointing diagnosis, preclude recovery. Then he independently studied the theory and practice experts from around the world, and has developed his own method, following which he was cured.
The developed method is based on scientific and medical achievements of domestic and foreign representatives, but the right to use them for the benefit of people concerned about the hernia of the spine, was able Bubnovsky. In detail, the origin of the method and links to information sources on its bases described in his book “Hernia of the spine – not a sentence!”. Also in the book there are methods of treatment in certain cases and appropriate exercises.
His exercises involve the private reserves of the body and help the patient without assistance to improve your health and restore the back. Thanks to his technique, many people escaped the suffering caused by the herniated disc. It will also help to do without surgery as exercise Bubnovskogo can solve the problems with hernias, even in advanced cases.
It is necessary to relax the muscles. Completely. Then remove the inflammation and swelling. A pinched nerve pain was due to the tension of the corresponding muscles. Complete relaxation is an important principle of method.What are the accents in this method:
You need to take care of the stretching of the muscles and spine. Flexible muscles work better and are less sick.Stretching of the spine leads to its rectification, and then all the vertebrae fall into place, which also reduces pain and improves overall health.
No drugs. Natural analgesic is exercise. Those who are doing exercises see improvement after a few sessions.
The exercises on Bubnovskiy
The development of the framework. Weak muscles do not support the bones, which leads to bending and unequal stress on the spine. The technique pays attention to the development not only back muscles but also abdominal muscles and pelvis, and hands and feet.
Development of musclesnot involved in the day-to-day operations. If the person is a long walk, or sitting – are actively working and loaded the same muscle. After inactive for a typical day muscles, can improve circulation, which also contributes to pain reduction and overall improvement.
Regular exercises Bubnovsky relieves the patients from all the unpleasant symptoms caused by intervertebral hernia, and leads to recovery. But before they proceed, you must do a comprehensive examination to establish the features of a particular organism, as well as the position, size, and condition of the hernia. Only then an individual training program, what exercises to do how many times and how often.
Differences between Bubnovsky from common practice
Bubnov examined the trends that were observed among their patients and are relevant to the diagnosis of the attending physicians. His own reasoning related to the fact that many patients overreacting to such a diagnosis as hernia and depression. He also notes that quite often the term “spinal disk herniation” is used to explain any back pain that society developed prejudices regarding the consequences of such a diagnosis and what the doctors-neurologists exaggerate while showing the irreversibility of the effects of hernia. In his opinion, very often the referral to the neurosurgeon is insufficiently substantiated, and even the term “hernia of the spine” is something like artificial inventions themselves neurosurgeons.
Bubnovsky refers to the fact that before the same symptoms of back pain attributed to sciatica (too often wrongly). But sciatica at least tried to treat using therapeutic tools, and the assistance of neurosurgeons treated only in the most extreme case – when the therapy did not yield the expected results. Not help drugs, traction, physical therapy, banks – then the surgery. When it comes to any suspicion of a hernia, or the hernia with small size, then patients are sent for surgery, due to the profit motive. This is a quick method, though expensive, in the end, there is an opportunity for smaller terms to serve more affluent patients. It’s only the opinion of the Professor, and his book expresses it. It is built on the principle of questions and answers, as during the years of his practice he had the opportunity to communicate with a large number of patients and their most common misconceptions and stereotypes he learned.
According to Bubnovsky, the doctor should focus on the result that will satisfy the patient.
And the way to get there is by taking note of two basic desires of those who come for treatment:
- The patient wants to get rid of pain, and it is also critical that this deliverance has passed without the use of drugs, because, as a rule, he is sick of them.
- The patient wants to restore the lost ability to work, wants to return to his normal life, work, unwilling to limit their physical potential.
Both of these desires are completely realistic so that the doctor did not remain without work, and the patient felt relief and satisfaction from the treatment.
A number of complications that can be present in a patient, restricts the possibility of using the technique Bubnovsky:
Postoperative time. If the patient recently underwent a surgical operation, during a certain period of use of exercises is unacceptable.
Problems with the heart. A state close to a heart attack, unstable angina, these signs indicate that it is impossible to apply the technique.
Violation of blood circulation in the brain, in the acute form, also limits the use of exercise. Same thing with hypertensive crisis.
Cancer, metastasis to the transition region of the vertebrae.
Application features methods – General rules:
- the principle of gradualism stress;
- when you exercises you should not allow acute pain;
- do not jump and do not run;
- no sudden movements are performed smoothly and accurately;
- every day – several approaches.
It is important to remember that recovery doesn’t happen instantly or after a couple of sessions.
