Symptoms of spinal osteochondrosis - home treatment

Many people over the age of 35 (and some before) experience persistent back and neck pain. Moreover, the pain arises and disappears and intensifies after many hours of sitting. Osteochondrosis is almost always the cause of these painful feelings.

Osteochondrosis is a negative (dystrophic) change in the joints (or rather articular cartilage) of the spine and intervertebral discs. Not only does osteochondrosis occur in the spine, but with this part of the body, this problem is the most serious.

Symptoms - what is the main?

The main symptom of osteochondrosis is usually pain that appears and disappears. Furthermore, pain sensations increase with static load, for example, if the head is in a long position in an oblique position, neck pain increases. With prolonged sitting, lower back pain appears. However, gymnastics can provide some pain relief.

It should be understood that similar pain may occur with inflammation, but in this case it resolves rapidly. In case of injury, healing will take place within 3 months. If the spine (neck, chest, lower back, sacrum area) regularly hurts for a year or more, 99% of the cases are herniated.

Osteochondrosis is a progressive disease, so if left untreated in time, the pain increases. But the greatest risk is associated with the consequences of inactivity in the treatment of the spine.

To start immediate therapy, pay attention to the following feelings:

  1. feeling numb;
  2. the appearance of goose hills, tingling sensations;
  3. the appearance of neuralgia;
  4. disabled.

Most of these signals involve compression of the neurovascular bundle. In this case, the compression can be localized in one place, and pain and distorted feelings can be detected remotely.

Reasons - why is it inevitable?

Osteochondrosis is simply the wear and tear of the spine. Spinal disorders are primarily caused by its vertical position and prolonged tension in the paravertebral muscles, which tonic and relax only during stretching or under the therapeutic effect of special devices. It is enough to sit for more than 2 hours in a computer or car - this already leads to hypertension of the intervertebral muscles of the lower back and neck. And after several years of sedentary lifestyle, the hernias appear on the neck and lower back. That’s why it’s important to start helping your spine after 30 years! Before the proliferation of mass sedentary work, sturgeon disease worried people after 40 years. But now this disease is getting younger and is starting to manifest from the age of 25.

That is, the main cause of the appearance of osteochondrosis of the spine is muscle cramps. And in the treatment, above all, restorative work must be done with the muscles.

How to treat? Efficient and cheap

Home treatment of osteochondrosis of the spine can be divided into 3 stages:

  1. Relieve acute pain.
  2. We eliminate muscle cramps, activate spinal repair processes and blood circulation.
  3. We do general strengthening exercises - this allows you to tone your muscles and consolidate the effects of your therapy.

The easiest way to relieve acute pain is with medication. This is the most effective, but it is worth noting that this is not the solution to the problem, but the elimination of the symptom.

In stages 2 and 3, an innovative technology that has become popular in Europe at home can be used to eliminate the causes of osteochondrosis and prevent its development. It is based on autogravity therapy. Therapy is based on safe action with its own weight on the therapeutic top of the devices. Developed by scientists and doctors, the Cordus and Sacrus devices are anatomically designed, whose therapeutic protrusions are able to sink into the intervertebral muscles or deep ligaments and relieve their tension. To date, no other technology can implement it so accurately and safely.

Implementation of the procedure. To perform the therapy, you must buy the device, lie on a sports mat or mat, and place the device under the desired area of the spine. The average examination time for a segment is about 3 minutes. During this time, the tense muscle or ligament relaxes as a result of the device. Due to the main cause of osteochondrosis - muscle cramps - this method is the safest and most effective.

3 processes take place simultaneously:

  1. Proprioreceptors are activated - sensors that indicate to the brain the state of a muscle. When they are touched mechanically or by microconductors for 3 minutes, the impulses travel to the nerve center, which regulates muscle tone. Usually within 2 minutes the nerve center gets tired and the tonic impulses coming from the nerve center stop, the muscle relaxes.
  2. Muscle tension occurs in the background of relaxation. This ensures that the intervertebral disc or nerve is not compressed, and it also restores the mobility of the vertebrae and joints.
  3. By eliminating the disc compression and restoring mobility, it can be tensed smoothly in the presence of a hernia, and the displaced vertebrae gradually return to their original position.

Even if the pain is localized in one zone, therapy should be performed on all three parts of the spine. For example, low back pain can result from cramps in the sacrum or neck, and vice versa.

After unraveling the spine, using the device developed according to the developed method, exercises are performed that stabilize the spine and strengthen the muscular corset, which ensures the consolidation of the achieved results.
