Still some 10-15 years ago, osteochondrosis was considered a "disease of the old." But today doctors confidently declare that diseases of the spine are increasingly being detected even in young people. The reason for this is a sedentary lifestyle, sedentary work and poor nutrition. A huge experience in the treatment of osteochondrosis proves that this is a very serious disease, from which a person can suffer all life, therefore to therapy it is necessary to approach responsibly and to use not one, but several methods of getting rid of disease.
One of the most important stages of treatment is exercise therapy. Let's talk in more detail, what is needed for gymnastics for osteochondrosis of the cervicothoracic spine and how to perform it correctly.
Those who are not the first time
By the way, getting rid of osteochondrosis is almost impossible. In those or other moments of life he again and again will remind of himself. But to make attacks of pain in the back and neck happen as rarely as possible, great attention must be paid to the exercise of exercise therapy.
If the disease is in the acute phase, therapeutic gymnastics is not performed. It is used as a restorative therapy after the removal of the pain syndrome. Exercises for osteochondrosis of the cervicothoracic part help relax tight muscles, improve blood circulation in muscles and the spine and help restore intervertebral discs. If the patient regularly and correctly performs such gymnastics, he will feel much better and very soon will begin to notice that the signs of the disease recede: there is a headache, pain in the back and neck, dizziness and excessive fatigue.
We must not forget that sometimes physical therapy for osteochondrosis of the cervicothoracic can be contraindicated, so it is necessary to consult with a doctor. For example, with a herniated intervertebral disc, you can worsen the course of the disease.
Perform exercises for the cervical spine can be done at home, but before that it is necessary to consult with the instructor on exercise therapy, who will select the optimal set of exercises and explain how to make them correctly.
Therapeutic physical training contains a huge number of different complexes aimed at restoring one or another part of the spine. The most important rule that you must follow when doing the exercises: you can not make sudden movements. In addition, it is better to abandon exercise therapy if you feel pain in the neck, shoulders and arms.
One of the most simple and effective complexes is LFK with osteochondrosis of the cervical department, containing the following exercises:
These simple exercises for the cervical department can improve the mobility of the neck and prevent the occurrence of pain. You can do them almost anywhere and at any time, which greatly facilitates the restoration of the vertebrae.
Chest osteochondrosis is diagnosed somewhat less frequently than the cervical or lumbar, which is explained by the fact that the thoracic region is less mobile and moreover is more protected by muscles. Nevertheless, gradually this type of osteochondrosis is gaining momentum, so for the treatment of this pathology special complexes have long been developed. Exercises for the thoracic spine are designed to strengthen the back muscles and improve posture in order to reduce the burden on the spinal column.
Before performing exercise therapy, you need to do a gentle kneading massage or take a warm shower to prepare your muscles for the upcoming lesson. After that, you can do the following exercises:
Like any medical gymnastics, exercises with osteochondrosis of the cervicothoracic spine are performed strictly after the pain syndrome is removed. You need to deal with it regularly - only in this way you can achieve the desired effect.
Therapeutic gymnastics in case of osteochondrosis of the cervical and thoracic region are the most important part of the therapy along with taking medications and physiotherapeutic procedures. It allows you to permanently get rid of the manifestations of the disease and significantly improves the patient's condition, but only when provided that a person will be responsive to the performance of recreational physical education and will do the exercises regularly..
