Treatment Spine pain
Spine is a part of the main axial human skeleton. Performs the function of support, responsible for the function of the spinal cord and the movement of the trunk and head. It consists of thirty-four vertebrae that have a strict connection with each other, sequentially in an upright position. The vertebrae are divided into several divisions: cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral and coccygeal. Each vertebra is responsible for the constituent elements of the body and affects their work, having a close connection. There is a cartilage pad between the adjacent vertebrae, which also connects each pair of adjacent vertebrae. This pad is called an intervertebral disc.
The unique shape of the spine, which resembles the letter "S", helps to perform the cushioning function of the spine. Dysfunctions of the internal organs of the thoracic region cause spine pain, affecting nerve fibers and cells.
Causes of neck and back pain
Often, due to spasms in the muscles and joint dislocations of the vertebrae, discomfort is felt in the neck and back. Spine pain is a consequence of an uncomfortable, tense sitting position, sudden movements and physical exertion, and can develop the following pathologies:
Kyphosis - curvature of the spine, turning into a stoop or hump. The curvature occurs with the convexity outward.
Scoliosis is a deformity of the spine characterized by lateral curvature to the left, right, or both sides. Unlike kyphosis, it is accompanied by rotation of the spine around its axis, which causes acute pain. This disease of the musculoskeletal system is a gross violation of the structure and functioning of many internal organs.
Osteochondrosis is a disease of the spine, which is a degenerative-dystrophic lesion of the intervertebral discs, as well as the tissues of the vertebrae. The main sign of osteochondrosis is neck pain or back.
Injuries of the spine and back
Injury. It only affects soft tissues. It happens when a certain damaging force acts for a short time.
Stretching. Caused by prolonged exposure to pulling force, higher than the physiological and affect the muscles, tendons, ligaments.
Fracture. When a vertebra is fractured, the integrity of the axial bone is violated. Each segment of the vertebra has certain types of fractures.
Dislocation. Occurs when the divergence of the surfaces in the joints. It can be complicated, including the consequence of a fracture.
