The most susceptible to osteochondrosis are people suffering from metabolic disorders, as well as various hormonal and vascular disorders, since this kind of disease causes eating disorders of the intervertebral discs. If no measures are taken, then over time the edges of the compacted intervertebral disc will begin to protrude beyond the spinal column, and the neurovascular bundle extending from the spinal cord will be constantly injured. So there is the formation of an intervertebral hernia.
Move more, do some exercises daily to strengthen and flex the spine (it is better if they are individually selected by a specialist). Watch your posture even when sitting in a chair. Sleep on a hard mattress. The soft mattress warms the intervertebral discs and makes them easily movable. Every day, with special exercises, strengthen your back muscles, avoid the uniform position of the spine, and also fully eat.
By the age of 50, most men and women suffer from spinal diseases. But these diseases begin to disturb a person much earlier, as a rule, at 35-40 years old. With osteochondrosis, the muscles and internal organs are involved in the pathological process. For example, with a disease of the cervical spine, a patient often has headaches, dizziness, tinnitus, and visual impairment.
With damage to the thoracic region – difficulty breathing and cardiac activity; lumbar – a violation of the digestive system, kidneys, decreased potency.
Osteochondrosis is understood as a dystrophic process in the intervertebral discs. Gradually losing its elastic properties, the disk is flattened. As a result, the distance between the vertebrae decreases, and the nerve roots extending from the spinal cord are pinched – there is pain, in the area of the pinched neurovascular bundle, the phenomena of edema begin to increase, which leads to even greater infringement and intensification of pain.
To get rid of physical suffering, take a rolling pin to roll out the dough or a glass bottle in your right hand and quietly, gradually strengthening, tap on the right shoulder, shoulder blade, spine. Then do the same with the left side of the body.
This can be done in the evening, sitting in front of the TV or in the morning while breakfast is being prepared. The main thing is to regularly. Lie on the floor on a rolling pin and try to “ride” on a rolling pin back and forth for about 15-20 minutes. The next day, it may be painful to repeat this procedure, but this is normal.
