We are enough, we have heard that is the most horrifying pain in the back and neck can be caused by the fault intervertebral hernia, and if presented with strong pain syndrome, go to the doctor, waiting for the problem of the sentence. However, the myths of impending pain in a hernia excessive: a hernia is often not the cause of pain in the back and neck, although many of the elderly in the image is determined at the same time even some 3-4 mm herniation. From where, then, is a serious pain in the back and neck, even in young people?
Pain in the back and neck appear most commonly by cramping of the muscles and joints subluxations vertebrae. Unfortunately, the diagnosis of muscles and joints is we don't have enough well. Small hernias and protrusion of there are identified with the help of CT and MRI, while subluxations and displacement of the vertebrae often remain undetected. Electromyography , which allows you to reveal the explicit different muscle tone, are often not carried out at all.
How and why it may occur abnormal spasms of the muscles or subluxations vertebrae it? May is possible only weightlifters or only occur after injuries or injuries of the spine?
The fact of the matter is that this can happen to absolutely everyone and almost invisible.
Muscle spasms can be increased in the course of his life, and themselves lead to shifts in the vertebral column and dislocation
The impetus for the spasm in the muscles can be quite everyday things:
The symptoms of pain in the neck and back
The mechanism of occurrence of the muscular pain
Because syndrome, pain arising in the muscles, often treated is not easy, besides, that the first episode is able to pass on his own? And because sore muscles?
The pain is so insidious phenomenon, which looks like the monster that he woke up. As long as he's sleeping, it's all good. But it's worth it to wake him up, the problems do not end.
If resulting muscle spasm in the area of the back and nape of the neck affects passing through the muscles, the nerves, activates the reflex mechanism of pain, which reminds me of hell of boomerang:
The pain simply can not subside due to continuous reflex irritation.
Promotes the development of chronic pain and the wrong treatment:
Training that congregate in the muscles it is very hard to the touch, but the man is extremely difficult to bend-unbend, rotate the neck, lifting and discharge to your hand.
The treatment of muscular spasms and acute pain should be targeted as quickly as possible treatment of pain
To do this is attributed to a week of bed rest and carried out:
Trigger point and the area of pain is not always a match:
Displacement (subluxation) of the joints of the vertebrae — it's not that rare a phenomenon. Neutral can:
Diagnosis of displacement of the joints
If subluxation occurs after a fall or a failed speakers, then the diagnosis can be suddenly revealed, and the long-term passing of the pain. During the shift may be heard the rattling or clicking
Displacement of the joints can and not give a bright clinical picture, except for the cases, when it occurs in transitional areas:
In each section there are the typical for more signs of a hernia:
In the cervical:
In the breast:
Such symptoms are a frequent cause of hospitalization of patients with suspected acute myocardial infarction, ulcers and even appendicitis.
To specify that the chest pain not due to heart, is easy enough: After the taking of validol or nitroglycerin pain is not in crisis
In the lumbar:
The optimal treatment of dislocation of the vertebra is the reduction, which is carried out with the help of osteopathy and therapy. It hurts I won't stop until vertebra do not get up from the place of a parent
Unfortunately, the true explanatory osteopaths and touches on the healers, able to spend a competent moving vertebra, very little.
Over time, chronic cervical myositis leads to osteochondrosis., and that, in contrast to the hernia, a very common cause of neck pain and is fairly common among very young people.
If the cervical osteochondrosis. patients usually go to the doctor with the complaint that it hurts his head when the lumbar the likely cause is already much lower, and have already begun to complain about the "paralysis of the legs".
Spasm of the muscles in the back causes spasms and narrowing in the blood vessels, because it worsens the blood supply to all the organs that are under problem area, including the foot. Hence arises the feeling of numbness in the extremities
If the pain in the area of the back and neck, despite treatment, has not passed during the week, there is no reason to suspect more serious diseases: displacement of the joints of the spine or herniated intervertebral disk.
Finally, he approached intervertebral hernia - a source of most intense pain in the cervical and lumbar spine, as well as for the neck, and the most dangerous phenomenon, in the mind of the particular role of the neck as trunk "pipeline" for the vertebral artery.
Syndrome of pain in the hernia and is much more laborious and time-consuming, as it is called a pinched spinal nerve. But this disease does not occur out of nowhere, and always followed
Usually pathology preceding:
Therefore, the expression "I've got a hernia" is wrong, although the same production for the victim is often a big surprise. But, and here should be a coincidence of many external factors:
A hernia is not always leads to pain:
Risk only the posterior hernia
If it hurts in the back and neck, to spend a detailed diagnosis.
Very common are the cases where the individual treatment of hernia, and in the picture that there really is, but to be the cause of the pain can not, because of the lack of the main reason: the compression of the nerve. The same is the position of the hernia excludes such a possibility
But man, my back hurts, and again he insisted to heal from hernia" and even an operation. And the causes of pain can actually be subluxation, and locking of the vertebrae or muscle spasm.
