Pain syndrome in the back is taken to eliminate with ointments and massage. But therapy in the home is not always effective and only when it becomes completely indecent, the patient goes to the doctor. And by this time, the disease takes a progressive form: neural spines are pinched, intervertebral discs are damaged, intervertebral hernias occur. But the risk of developing degenerative processes in the spine can be leveled.
What is osteochondrosis
Osteochondrosis is the deformation and degradation of the intervertebral discs composed of cartilaginous tissue.
The disease begins to develop when the vertebral column fails to cope with loads or stays in a state of little mobility. Popularly, osteochondrosis is often referred to as salt deposit. But what reason do they accumulate?
Simply, the spine stops coping with the load, and the body tries to compensate for said deficiency by strengthening the pillar with calcium-containing sediments. What to do?
Efforts should be focused on back muscles and abdominal press training. They make up the so-called muscle corset. The better it is developed — the less likely it is to develop osteochondrosis and get injured. After all, muscles (if strong and elastic) will assume a significant portion of the load, and the risk of deformation of the vertebral column will be minimized.
But the developed muscle corset is not only a guarantee of no osteochondrosis. Even if the disease is already progressing, the patient is obliged to strengthen the muscles of the back, abdominal press and pelvic floor. Remember that the human body is a self-regulating system. If the spine is supported by well-developed muscles, then the concentration of salts in the body will not exceed the allowable limits.
The first remedy for prevention of osteochondrosis and its treatment at the stage of absence of spinal syndromes is therapeutic physical education. It is necessary to perform a certain complex of simple exercises aimed at training the muscles of the abdomen and back.
What does the muscle corset give us, in addition to reliably protecting against osteochondrosis?
· “military service”;
· flat, with “cubes” belly (in the absence of a predilection for beer); · the ability to
perform work in the house and in the country without fear that at any moment there could be back pain.
· prerogative to walk beautifully in heels;
· proper posture and formation of habit to keep shoulders unfolded (with this position of the body favourably emphasizes the chest);
· “belly tightened” effect.
Maintaining the correct position of the spine, the muscle corset prevents many serious diseases of the internal organs. After all, if the normal position of the spine is disturbed and there has been a pinch of the nerve spines due to deformities of the discs, then back pain is half trouble. Vital organs also suffer.
In particular, there are cases where, against the background of pathology in the cervical spine, vision or hearing deteriorates, severe headaches and thyroid disorders develop. Injuries in the thoracic department can lead to respiratory dysfunction and heart disease. These risks are reduced by systematic exercises aimed at strengthening the muscles of the back and abdomen.
