After that, 40% alcohol is added to the cooled infusion, turning it into a tincture. The resulting mixture is pressed for 10 minutes over a small fire. Usually a glass of alcohol is enough for 2.5 liters of alcohol. The drug is taken twice a day after meals.

The use of

ointments The popular treatment of cervical osteochondrosis, used at home, involves the use of rubbing. For the basis of the preparation of the ointment, pork fat is used, which is heated in a frying pan, or crushed lard. Add the fir oil and turpentine to it and mix to a homogeneous consistency.

Before applying the ointment neck or lumbar preheat. For this, you can use both a massage and warmed-up salt, placed in a tissue pouch. The product is carefully rubbed into painful points until completely absorbed and completes the procedure by applying salt.

As the best medicine for osteochondrosis, for many years people use an ointment based on the root of ginger and garlic. These components in equal proportions are crushed in a blender or meat grinder, after which they are mixed with warm pork fat or melted butter.

Ointment is applied to the lumbar or cervical spine by intense rubbing movements. It has an irritating and distracting effect, relieving a painful attack with acute osteochondrosis.


Treatment of osteochondrosis with folk remedies implies mandatory use of warm compresses. They are superimposed on any part of the spine, helping to eliminate stagnation of blood.

For the preparation of compresses, radish juice, raw potatoes, celery root or birch leaves are used. Ingredients are ground to a mushy state, and then mixed with warmed honey. Applying a remedy to the affected part of the spine, it is covered with cellophane and wrapped with wool to preserve heat.

As recipes from osteochondrosis based on mustard are used as compresses. To do this, it is mixed with whipped egg whites and added two glasses of vodka. Since this product has a pronounced irritant effect, it is advised to lubricate the skin with any oil before applying it to avoid burns.

Compresses with aloe, honey and vodka are softer. They can be used even for skin diseases.

Drug baths

The same ingredients that are used for the preparation of decoctions and infusions for internal reception are very effective and as therapeutic baths. They not only warm up the back muscles, forcing them to relax, but also have a sedative effect on the nervous system.

After herbal fragrant baths, which can easily be organized at home daily, the patient feels rested and cheerful. The mobility in the spine is restored, the numbness of the extremities that are characteristic of cervical and thoracic osteochondrosis disappear.


Self-massage method at home allows you to remove muscle spasm, pain syndrome and normalize blood flow. Especially it is effective for osteochondrosis of the cervical spine.

It uses the same techniques as for professional massage. First, stroking from top to bottom. They can be held simultaneously with both hands or in turn for each side of the neck. After they start rubbing to warm and soften the muscles of the cervical spine. They are carried out by a plane or an edge of a palm before occurrence of sensation of heat.

Having warmed the neck, it is kneaded, grabbing the skin with your fingers and letting go. Such tweaks are convenient to carry out the opposite hand for each side. The purpose of this technique is to remove the pinching of the nerve roots, the removal of pain and the normalization of the movements of the neck.

The plus of this folk remedy is the ability to apply it not only at home, but also at work, when the neck muscles feel tired. The same techniques can be used for the waist, only in a standing position.

In addition to the hands for self-massage at home, it is convenient to use improvised tools, such as a rolling pin. It is usually used for the lumbar spine. At the same time, lying on his back, they try to turn the rolling pin up and down rolling on it. It is even better to have a special massager with the influence of infrared rays, which simultaneously warms and kneads tissues, and also relieves spasm.


To work out the neck, use slow circular motions or slopes to the sides. Then the palms are applied to the forehead, resisting the head so that the muscles of the back surface of the neck are strained. In the same way, palms are alternately applied to the cheekbone regions, straining and strengthening the lateral muscles of the cervical region. Exercises for the neck can be performed directly, sitting at the desk.

For the development of the thoracic spine, you should stand with your legs spread over the width of your shoulders. Hands are placed on the shoulders and rotate them back and forth. Then one by one they raise each shoulder upward. With their hands behind their back, they try to connect them with their hands. After this, one by one the hands are tied behind the neck: one arm is turned on top and the other is from the bottom.

For the waist, the well-known exercise "kitty" is quite effective, when, standing on all fours, the bending and rounding of the back are performed alternately. In the position on the back with the arms raised behind the head, the touch of the elbow of the opposite knee is successively performed. To eliminate the displacement of the lumbar vertebrae and the release of strangulated nerves, it is also recommended to hang more often on the bar.

How to treat osteochondrosis at home

Osteochondrosis is a pathological process characterized by degeneration of the intervertebral discs. And if by itself this process proceeds painlessly, the complications of osteochondrosis - disc hernias, cervical and lumbosacral radiculitis, sciatica cause a lot of suffering to the patient, limit the ability to move, and worsen the quality of life. For this reason, even an ordinary visit to a polyclinic is sometimes extremely difficult. In such cases, the question of how to treat osteochondrosis at home is very relevant.

Treatment Options

In many patients, the treatment of osteochondrosis at home is for some reason inevitably associated with folk medicine. Yes, folk remedies play a significant role in the home treatment of osteochondrosis. However, treatment using only grandmother's recipes would be one-sided.

In addition to recipes for folk medicine, home treatment for osteochondrosis includes:

  • Medications
  • Massage
  • Physiotherapy
  • Complete nutrition.


The effectiveness of medications does not depend on where they are used - at home or in a hospital. The main thing is that these medicines are prescribed and used under the supervision of a doctor. In case of emergency, due to the difficulties of movement, you can call a neurologist at your home. An experienced specialist, after listening to complaints and examining the patient, will prescribe appropriate medication. Though some diagnostic procedures, for example, roentgenography of a backbone, nevertheless should be passed. For this, you can arrive at the hospital by transport. But then, when the doctor has a complete picture of the disease, you can proceed to medical treatment.

Yes, some effective manipulations for osteochondrosis, for example, blockade with local anesthetics, are not feasible at home. However, the remaining groups of drugs - NSAIDs( non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) in tablets and ointments are quite applicable in the home. In this capacity, Indomethacin, Diklak gel, Ibuprofen, Fastum gel are suitable. Efficiency at home is also relevant for other groups of drugs - chondroprotectors( chondroxide, chondroitin complex) of locally irritating gels and ointments( Apizarthron, Finalgon).The effect of these drugs can be strengthened by a parallel intake of vitamin-mineral complexes.

Traditional medicine

Well, of course, what kind of home treatment without folk remedies. Many of these funds were developed by our grandmothers, great-grandmothers, when the pharmaceuticals were not in sight. Treatment of folk remedies for osteochondrosis involves the use in various combinations of natural products of plant origin and some household products.

We present the most effective recipes that have proven themselves in the treatment of osteochondrosis:

  1. Grind 6 pods of red pepper and mix them with 160g. Camphor alcohol and from the year 250 of medical bile. Stir the mixture for a week into a dark glass bottle with a tightly ground glass stopper. The resulting mixture is used for compresses.
  2. Insist within 1 hour of Art.a spoonful of dried yarrow in a glass of boiling water. Infusion take inside 1 tbsp.spoon 3 times a day.
  3. Grind the celery root, then take it in the amount of 3-4 grams and insist in a liter of warm water for 8 hours. Received infusion take 1 dessert spoon three times a day before meals.
  4. 150 g. Garlic twisted in a meat grinder with 3 lemons. The resulting mixture is placed in 2 liters.capacity, and pour the top with boiling water. Received infusion to drink in the morning for half a cup. Shake before use.
  5. With cervical osteochondrosis 1 tbsp. Spoon the crystals of sea salt dissolve in 1L.water. The solution is boiled, then cooled to room temperature. Rinse the neck with a towel soaked in this solution for 12 days.
  6. Insist equal shares of St. John's wort, blossoms of black elderberry, thyme, chamomile. Infusion to use as compresses.
  7. 20g.dried birch kidneys to insist in 50 g of alcohol 10 days. To 1 part of the tincture add 4 parts of Vaseline. The resulting agent is used as an ointment for the spine.
  8. Grind the roots of the saber.1 cup of roots pour 0,5, insist 3 weeks. Tinctured tincture take 1 teaspoon 3 times a day for 0.5 hours before meals.


After using the medications and natural remedies, the symptoms of osteochondrosis( severe pain, sensitivity disorders and movement limitation, cerebral disorders) noticeably regressed, you can start massage procedures. Of course, the services of a masseur provided at home are not available to everyone. In such cases, you can self-massage.

Self-massage is carried out on the same principles as classical massage. Especially popular neck massage with cervical osteochondrosis, since the neck is the most accessible in this respect anatomical area. Initially, the massaged area is affected by a slight stroking. Stroking is carried out with the palm surface of the hand. Light movements with tightly pressed palms are performed along the cervical and upper thoracic muscles. Then follows the rubbing of the massaged areas with your fingertips, kneading, vibration and pinching of the fingers with your fingers.

Self-massage of the back perform a bit more complicated. In this case, rubbing, kneading and pokolachivayuschie movements are applied by the pads of the thumbs of the hands, with the fists or the edge of the palm. A peculiar, but effective method of self-massage is to take a sitting position, and, wrapping your arms around your feet, make rides on your back, back and forth. Massaging of the back muscles in this case occurs under the influence of its own weight.

However, self-massage is not the only way to massage your back, lower back and neck at home. Domestic and foreign firms have developed a variety of devices for carrying out a massage at home. These devices are called masseurs. Massagers essentially differ from each other in terms of device, principle of operation, and, accordingly, at a price. The simplest massager, familiar to many, is the Kuznetsov needle applicator, which looks like rugs, rollers. There are vibrating massagers, electric massagers, which exert influence of varying degrees of complexity.

The rules of self-massage, as well as the use of massagers, are similar to those for classical massage. All effects are on clean, freshly washed skin, on which there should be no pathological inflammatory processes. When the appearance and intensification of pain, the procedure should be stopped immediately. The presence of a cold, severe chronic diseases of the cardiovascular, respiratory systems is a contraindication to this type of treatment.

Wellness gymnastics

Physical therapy exercises for osteochondrosis can also be performed in native walls. But before treating osteochondrosis at home with the help of exercise therapy, it is necessary to consult with the appropriate specialist. Otherwise, you can cause yourself irreparable harm. Correctly selected sets of exercises contribute to strengthening the muscular framework of the back and neck, stabilize the spine.

The simplest exercises that you can do at home - it's on the crossbar, walking on all fours. These exercises contribute to widening the gap between the vertebrae with the release of strangulated nerves. As physical exertions, it is possible to make turns and torso of the trunk, raising arms and legs in a prone position on a rigid surface. It is important not to forget - all movements should be done easily and smoothly, without straining and jerking. Severe sharp pain is a contraindication for exercise.


The diet is also included in the complex of therapeutic and prophylactic measures for osteochondrosis. After all, we eat at home. Full nutrition, including fresh vegetables, fruits, cheeses, sour-milk products, lean meat and fish, will enhance the metabolic processes in the cartilaginous tissue. On the contrary, easily digestible carbohydrates, fats, spices, strong tea and coffee will not only lead to an excess of body weight, but also have a negative impact on the state of intervertebral discs.

For better digestibility and early elimination of slags, food should be consumed at least 2 liters.liquid. And let it be not soda or newfangled soft drinks, but alkaline still mineral water, fruit compotes and natural juices. In conclusion, I want to note that it is impossible to completely get rid of osteochondrosis at home. Similarly, it is impossible to get rid of it in a hospital, in a sanatorium or in some other place - it is an irreversible process. But to prevent complications of osteochondrosis and to achieve lasting improvement through home methods of treatment is quite possible.

Treatment of osteochondrosis at home

Osteochondrosis is so widespread today that it would seem that everyone knows about it. Medical telecasts, wide access to the global Internet network, a huge number of pharmacies - all this tempts people to save time and money for doctors, and treat chondrosis at home .How justified is this modern trend?

Treatment of chondrosis at home is possible if it is integrated

Can the spinal chondrosis be treated at home?

Today our people are quite educated and are keenly interested in medicine, especially in the sphere of their "favorite" diseases, which he is being treated not for the first time. Therefore, there is nothing particularly fantastic and reprehensible in this situation:

The patient has already thoroughly studied the disease and its symptoms, has repeatedly been to the doctor and underwent a checkup, treats not spontaneously, but in a complex way, guided by the generally accepted scheme:

  1. Treat not only the symptoms of pain, but alsoits cause :
    • to eliminate or reduce the deformation of the spine and the muscle imbalance that caused the pain of
    • to strengthen the spine framework to prevent further approach of the vertebrae
  2. shennye cartilage using designated chondroprotectors
  3. chondrosis engaged in the prevention, monitor their diet and lifestyle

Yes, and it is clear that to implement fully all of these items combined treatment, while at home, will not succeed.

Treatment of chondrosis at home is hardly appropriate in such a situation:

A person first encountered incomprehensible symptoms for him and just climbed into the Internet and began to read advice on this matter.

Without initial examination and medical examination alone, treat presumptive chondrosis, hernia and any other disease is dangerous and unacceptable

Dangerous symptoms with chondrosis

Chondrosis is not as simple as it seems due to its remote neurological and vegetative symptoms:

  • Symptoms of dizziness, pain andloss of sensation in the legs
  • Imaginary heart and respiratory disorders
  • Incomprehensible problems with the bladder and intestines and the like

This can confuse doctors, not govOC alone ignorant of human medicine, which is due to just such symptoms bought in a pharmacy medicine bag right away from it all to ruin them his liver.

There is also a reverse - the pain in the back is not chondrosis at all, but a reflection of a completely different problem of cardiac, gastrointestinal, gynecological nature. In this case, self-medication can generally lead to the loss of life of .

What can be treated at home

Consider the main components of the complex treatment of osteochondrosis.

Treatment of pain at home

Treatment of acute pain in chondrosis always involves the use of medications, in whatever conditions you do not spend it: in hospital or home

Pain treatment can be carried out at home in comfortable resting conditions. Purchased prescription ampoules and tablets NSAIDs, muscle relaxants, sedatives - all can be used alone.

Treatment of acute pain in chondrosis at home is recommended with the help of medical preparations

  1. Successfully and completely independently it is possible to apply preparations of local value: ointments, gels and plasters from a pain. True, there may not be any sense, since such remedies are additional, and their effect is much weaker than that of injections and pills, and it is better not to take them for acute pain
  2. But the primary examination of the house, of course, does not take place. A doctor summoned to the house during an exacerbation, is unlikely to be an orthopedist in the specialty. It will be either an ambulance doctor on duty or a local therapist. Radiography of the same, CT or MRI needed to diagnose and determine the location of the nerve pincer, you will have to do at the clinic
  3. . It is not always possible to perform a full medication and cervical chondrosis, as it often causes cerebral and ischemic symptoms, which requires the appointment of appropriate droppers underthe doctor's control

The house traction

One of the methods increasing the distance between the vertebrae and thereby removing the pain is the traction

. There is a special arrangement in the clinicfor dry and underwater extraction, which allows you to stretch the spine for several sessions, fixing the result wearing a corset.

At home, traction with such a quick result, of course, not to hold, however, sometimes it is even contraindicated.

An analogue extractor at home is the Evminov's prophylaxis, which, when performing daily exercises for a long time, gives good results to .

Prophilator Evminova - home exhaust simulator

Home acupuncture

Acupuncture is an effective treatment for osteochondrosis. The irritation of precisely located acupuncture points does wonders - perennial muscle blocks go away, the radicular pain ceases.

Recently, Kuznetsov's applicators have been reborn for the second time, modified to the Lyapko applicator. Many use them at home and talk about some effects. But this is more the effect of pain irritation, causing a rush of blood and a reduction in pain, which is more relevant to the means of massage. But the acicular nature of the applicator inspires fear:

Multiple chaotic subcutaneous injections into the back and neck area can not be considered as acupuncture and do not rule out the possibility of dangerous consequences.

Massage at home

But the massage with chondrosis is a very real procedure for home treatment. Today the masseurs do not shun money and do not neglect private clients.

In addition, there are a lot of opportunities today for self-massage. You can carry out kneading massage with the fingers, fists and ribs of the palm, as well as using additional tools such as:

  • Tape-massager
  • Massage mats, capes, chairs, coronets, etc.

    For home massage you can use a broom of bamboo

If necessary, you can use an ordinary rolling pin to roll dough and a broom for a bath.

However, a qualified and real professional massage can still be taken in the appropriate doctor's office from the licensed specialist .

Folk remedies for the treatment of chondrosis

Pain in chondrosis often becomes chronic. This is explained by the creation of spasmodic muscle layers due to constant pain irritation. If the radicular pain can still be stopped with the help of strong NSAIDs, glucocorticosteroids and other strong, but harmful drugs, muscle pain can not be cured by them. And here it is very suitable for people's treatment: compresses, tinctures and broths for rubbing and ingesting

For the treatment of chronic pain, compresses, ointments, tinctures and decoctions of

are used. If they are used for a long time and constantly, the pain attack will not happen again for a long time. So this treatment can be considered not only restorative, but also preventive .

Effective recipes for the back people came up with a lot. For example, the following:

  • Compresses on back from grated horseradish and potatoes mixed with honey

How to cure osteochondrosis at home

What is osteochondrosis? How to cure osteochondrosis at home - this problem is of interest to an increasing number of people.

Like many diseases, osteochondrosis has grown younger, and not only the old people, but also young people and even schoolchildren, often turn to a doctor with such ailment.

And the cause of this terrible disease is in our way of life.

Every day comfort and convenience destroy our health, because we are less and less moving, running, jumping. ..

Working at a computer, working in offices, personal transport leave less and less time for at least a simple hike.

The pace of life is such that we are always in a hurry somewhere. And not feet. And not in the gym. And as a result - problems with the joints and spine.

Today, the article is mainly about cervical osteochondrosis.

Contents of the article

  • Turn the neck to the extreme right
  • Turn the neck to the extreme left position
  • Do you feel pain in the neck when turning your head?

If the answer is positive and pain is present when turning the head, then you have osteochondrosis of the cervical spine.

What is osteochondrosis

Osteochondrosis is a lesion of bone and cartilaginous tissue of the spine. In fact, it is degeneration and degeneration of the spine. The older the person becomes, the more his cartilaginous tissues wear out. We look at the picture above different stages of osteochondrosis. Only the upper disc is healthy, all others are deformed.

This process occurs as a result of loss of moisture - the cartilage between the vertebrae peels, becomes brittle, thin. It happens that the interchondral disc is not at all - it is erased, and the vertebrae begin to touch each other and deform. The size of the opening through which the process of the spinal cord nerve passes is reduced.

The vertebrae themselves begin to irritate the nerve. There is a so-called pinch of the nerve when the height of the intervertebral disc changes. There is pain, as a result of squeezing the nerve endings with sagging vertebrae and hernia of the spine.

Also through the vertebral column is the paired vertebral artery. When it squeezes the deformed vertebrae, the brain's oxygen supply is broken, the pressure rises, and headaches appear. This is how vertebral-basilar insufficiency develops. Over time, the threat of stroke increases.

What is a herniated intervertebral disc

With a loss of elasticity of the intervertebral cartilage disk, any stronger load on the spine causes it to be squeezed. There is a protrusion of the disc and - a hernia appears.

In Latin, , the hernia is the protrusion of the between the vertebrae of a thinned cartilaginous disc. As if a piece of cartilaginous tissue is released under pressure and is located on the side of the vertebrae. The hernia begins to irritate the nerve endings and cause pain in the arm. Sign of cervical osteochondrosis is numbness of fingers.

With pain in the neck and numbness of the little finger and ring finger is a guarantee of a hernia between the seventh cervical and the first thoracic vertebra. With the numbness of the middle and ring fingers, the hernia is located between the sixth and seventh vertebrae. If the pain and numbness come in the thumb and forefinger, then the hernia is located between the fifth and sixth cervical vertebrae.

Symptoms of cervical osteochondrosis

Symptoms of cervical osteochondrosis are often even confused with vegetovascular dystonia. Here are the main symptoms of the disease:

  1. severe pain in the neck, back
  2. headache
  3. cold and numb fingers
  4. pressure increase

Excellent advice is given by the doctor - see:

Causes of osteochondrosis

In order to eliminate the disease, you need to know its cause. The cause of osteochondrosis is congestion in the muscles of the spinal and cervical spine, insufficient supply of blood to these muscles, which leads to oxygen starvation of the cartilaginous discs and, subsequently, to their dystrophy.

The main cause of this disease is a sedentary lifestyle, work related to sitting at the desk in the office, spending a long time at the computer and at the school table. As a result, the muscles of the back atrophy, which create a muscle corset and support the spine in a certain position.

With a sedentary lifestyle, there is no normal feeding of the discs between the vertebrae. If the muscles of the back do not work - stagnation of lymph occurs, there is no normal removal of salts from the intervertebral space.

For the normal activity of the lymphatic system, the load and the work of the muscles are necessary, and then the outflow of lymph normally functions, the products of vital activity are excreted to the excretory organs, and oxygen enters the cartilages of the intervertebral disks with blood flow.

Complex elimination of the causes of osteochondrosis in its treatment

The main task in treating muscle stagnation in the cervicothoracic area is to ensure a normal flow of blood to the damaged cartilage of the discs in the spine. It does not do with one single action - a system of measures is needed.

These include:

  • Refusal from bad habits and a gradual transition to the acquisition of useful habits. Smoking, alcohol lead to spasms and already jammed vessels of the dorsal artery.
  • Compliance with the diet - the rejection of fatty and cholesterol-containing foods: eggs, broths, poultry skins and pigs.
  • Limit the consumption of strong coffee and tea, gradually switch to herbal teas and fresh juices.
  • Find the right mattress and pillow for sleeping, preferably orthopedic. This will create a normal circulation in the back during relaxation and relaxation of the muscles of the back.
  • Restoration of normal blood circulation in stiff muscles and disks by massage, self-massage, complex of exercise therapy, compresses, grindings and reception of herbal infusions and spirits of herbs.

How to cure osteochondrosis at home with folk remedies

When treating osteochondrosis, one thing needs to be understood - this is not a common disease that can be cured with pills. Osteochondrosis is a functional change in the cartilage and vertebrae associated with a certain way of life, nutrition and bad habits. And to get rid of it is necessary to take a whole range of activities. Some pills and injections are indispensable here.

Consider the possibilities of home treatment of osteochondrosis. Before you start using them - be sure to consult each item with your doctor. The doctor will pick up and advise what will be safe for you at the moment and bring the most effective result.

At the very beginning of treatment it is necessary to remove severe pain. This can be done by pharmaceutical means, after blockade with diclofenac injections with subsequent receptions of analgesic tablets.

It is necessary to understand that the regular use of pain medications will sooner or later disrupt the functioning of the intestine, pancreas and liver. Therefore, a normal doctor will advise you those folk medicine that you can safely use at home.

    Galina, as I know everything. Four years ago, a herniated intervertebral disc herniation was removed. Until my leg was numb, I did not go to the doctors. And you can not cure just drugs - that's right you said. The main stretch of the spine. I found a wonderful joint gymnastics "Beloyar" - very, very! !!

I started writing an article on the material of Beloyar - I postponed it a little, but I'll finish soon - it's very interesting to use the thymus gland - that's why the effect is so fantastic! This gland only works in childhood and in adolescence, and the Beloyar system wakes it up and makes it work. .. Very interesting!

The spine is my sore spot( or rather, one of:) ).I have a protrusion of the intervertebral discs, and this is the initial stage of the hernia. Apparently this is one of the complications of osteochondrosis. Although doctors are at a loss to say what is involved. As well as what to do about it. Only charging and massage. So movement is life! All on gymnastics!

What are the difficulties of this doctors? Doctors often find it difficult. ..

Protrusion is one of the stages of development of osteochondrosis. At the top there is a picture and there is a third protrusion. This is the stage before the appearance of a hernia.

If you, Oksana, set yourself for a goal EVERY DAY to drink 2 liters of LIQUID water - the hernia will be avoided.

Protrusions occur at a certain stage of development of osteochondrosis and are the result of degenerative-dystrophic disruption of the structure of intervertebral discs, as a result of which the disc is dehydrated, its elasticity decreases, the height decreases, and cracks appear in the fibrous ring. The fixation of vertebrae with each other worsens, instability develops in the affected motor segment of the spine.

No sharp slopes, especially when lifting weights. With a heavy load, just a piece of disk will pop out and a hernia will appear.

Under the influence of water, the cartilage swells, increases in size and it pushes the vertebrae back to where it should be.

And of course - stretching exercises. I will continue this topic with one more article. Without increasing water consumption - nothing will work. ..

Every morning I pour myself a half-liter bottle of raw water and throughout the day I drink - as soon as I switch from one bookmark to another - I drink water. Another half liter I type in the morning - a glass of warm water and also - before bed. Here also it turns out two liters. It was very hard to teach the body to drink. .. Begin with a little water and gradually increase it.

Well done, that they started to drink! Doctors are needed - when diagnosing and - in the treatment of complex ailments. But, judging by my parents, they could not cope with this even in their bodies, not to mention the diseases of the father and mother - how many times we were in the intensive care unit and said goodbye to them, until I began to study everything and apply first to myself, and then- on them. The salary of doctors does not depend on the number of patients cured. And it is negligible. ..

And Oksane want to say that it also started all for a long time, but somehow it will hurt and stop. And then we went in the autumn for my mushrooms and froze, the slopes down, then the wood was still laying, although the pains were already there and all the hernia jumped out.

Galina, welcome, here you are and showed us your new site, great. I went in, saw an article about osteochondrosis and could not not get into this topic, because all these musculoskeletal ailments are a golden massage of a masseur. Yes, and I myself suffer from this disease, from childhood I suffer from lumbar osteochondrosis and scoliosis, the torsion in the lumbar vertebrae is determined directly by hands. You have said a lot of interesting and useful things, and about the herbs, and about exercises, and about the first emergency help, it is remarkably simple, but I want to remind you about the corsets. Corsets perfectly fix the correct position of the vertebrae, which helps to relieve the spine and facilitate the condition. Of course, you can not wear them for a long time, at most 1-2 hours, and then you need to take it off so that the muscles do not become lazy, but they need to be worn during exercise. And yet, Galina, you say that a hernia is a disk bulging, this is not entirely correct. Inside the disc there is a pulpous nucleus, similar to a chicken yolk, that is, it is as soft and can stick out where there is at least a small crack. Here protrusion of this nucleus through protrusions in the intervertebral discs and there is a hernia. By the way, the hernia can live for a long time in an asymptomatic state, for example, Schmorl's hernia generally does not give a pain effect, because it protrudes not outward, but into the bony pocket of a deformed vertebra, there are such nuances. I'm waiting for your article about the exercises, I wonder if they will fit in my case.

Hello, Татьяна!Thank you for the addition! True, I did not find the phrase in the article about the bulging of the disk. .. It's bold in me, that hernia is a protrusion. .. But, I think it's hard to read a carefully long article and all of us - bloggers, read diagonally.

I'm glad to see you on my modest blouse!

And for a masseur an osteochondrosis is not a plowed field! Soon I will have another article on this topic - about stretching the spine and muscle corset.

Yes, and he was going to write an article on this topic. But I'll write it a little later in a different perspective.😉

In his youth with this sore came across, for the first time - on May 1, 1983.

Why do I remember the date? Yes, he just came from the May demonstration( and it was cool, it seems the May frosts came at that time), picked up a 3-month-old daughter Tatyana( born January 25) and. .. collapsed with her from sharp pain to her knees.

I was then 36. The first bell. Have registered 5 ukolchikov, has accepted three and all has passed or has taken place. The second rang in 10 years, when in a severe frost, 15 ran 12 km along the open windy field. I took it so hard I got home.Слегг with an osteochondrosis. After 3 days I went to the native forest with a wedge to knock out a wedge."I got so screwed up" that I returned from training on unsteady legs and barely got to the sofa. He let go only after he started a medical starvation, somewhere in 4. .. 5 days. In the late 90's there was another relapse. Could not bend. Well, then, it seems, there was an inflammation of the sciatic nerve. Also three ukolchik helped.

And the last 15 years - fie, fie. .. never a hint. Probably help the constant running training and daily 1. .. 1.5 liters of "Poltava Dzherlnaya"( spring) without gas - excellent water! Often, instead of her, I drink raw, after all, both from one artesian wells, deeper than 600 m and constant running training.

Now, under the influence of your articles, Galina, I will go out on 2 liters of raw water daily.😉

In winter it's harder to drink water - eat a tulle - and you can easily drink 2 liters. ..

And in my youth I could feel my back because of my thinness, but as I grew a little meat - my back stopped worrying. Yes, and physical stretch it is well strengthened, and I regularly take dietary supplements on the basis of sprouted grains, and water - that's how it all worked together somehow.

Osteochondrosis is now a very common disease.

I myself suffer from cervical and lumbar osteochondrosis. Work sedentary, whole day 8, or even more hours at the typewriter, and then at home still at the computer I sit. I walk a lot, because I'm already used to it.

Sometimes it's twisted that I'm sitting on pricks. And last winter, in general, nerves began to cling to the hand, also, probably, from osteochondrosis. Occupational disease. That's how we live. We are treated, then it hurts again.

How to treat osteochondrosis - medication and home treatment - Health era

The main ways of using medicines in the treatment of osteochondrosis are:

  1. oral( inside);
  2. local( compresses and rubbing).

Oral remedies

Back osteochondrosis requires the intake of such tablets and capsules as painkillers and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. But with the help of these tools, it is possible to fight only with the manifestations of the disease, and not with its causes, to combat which also chondroprotectors are taken inside to restore cartilage and prevent its further degeneration in the form of capsules. In tablets or capsules are taken and vitamin complexes, as well as tableted forms of immunomodulators.

Chondroprotector in capsules

In cases where the pathology is caused by hormonal changes in women during menopause, oral calcium-containing preparations and the means by which the hormonal imbalance correction is performed are also administered orally.

Topical products

Ointments, gels and creams are widely used in the treatment of osteochondrosis. You can combine the intake of anti-inflammatory drugs and chondroprotectors with their external application. With their local application in the projection of the pathological focus, the active substance enters directly into the tissues of the affected area. Used and ointments containing substances with irritant effect, which have a detracting effect and improve local blood circulation.

In some cases, gels are prescribed containing steroid hormones: hydrocortisone, kenalog, diprospan. They relieve inflammation better than non-steroid, but they have a broader spectrum of side effects, so they are recommended only if there are insufficient efficacy of other agents in the acute period. Effective and combined gels, as well as anti-inflammatory, analgesic and having a distraction action patches.

Injections of

All of the above medicines can be administered intramuscularly. Intravenously drip funds that improve blood microcirculation, previously dissolving them in crystalloid solutions for drip infusions.

Injectable forms of medications are also administered topically. In osteochondrosis, paravertebral blockades are made in this way, for which a local anesthetic, often with one of the corticosteroids and an antibiotic, is injected at the exit points of the roots of the spinal nerves. As a result, the active substance is injected directly into the nerve fiber.

Drug treatment must necessarily be carried out according to the doctor's prescription and under his supervision, since each drug has a contraindication and side effects.

Treatment of osteochondrosis at home

If a patient with osteochondrosis received medication prescribed by a doctor, in most cases it gives its results and the pain syndrome is stopped. But if he does not change anything in his life, a relapse is inevitable.

This pathology is insidious and has a tendency to progress. Therefore, it is necessary to undergo treatment under the supervision of a doctor, and continue therapy at home after an acute period.


This pathology progresses with a sedentary lifestyle, an incorrect distribution of loads, frequent microtrauma.

This patient needs to sleep only on a hard bed and forget about the big and soft pillows. They should be replaced by a roller of medium stiffness. During work, when walking and resting, you need to monitor your posture, and you can not stay in one static position for a long time. Do not neglect walking and morning exercises.

A very effective method of treatment and prevention of osteochondrosis is swimming, which helps to relax the back muscles without additional efforts.

It is useful to visit a sauna or a sauna. In winter, go skiing.


From fatty, fried, smoked and overly spicy foods should be, as well as from obesity-promoting carbohydrates. After all, excess weight - this is an additional burden on the spine. It is also necessary to limit the use of coffee and alcohol.

Therapeutic exercises

Exercises should be started with the instructor. They should be painless, in most cases done in a lying position. A good effect I give classes in therapeutic gymnastics in the pool.

Exercises for osteochondrosis


Effective can massage. Selling in pharmacies medical banks improve blood circulation and have a distraction. The technique of performing this procedure is quite simple: the back is smeared with petrolatum, the burning wick is introduced into the jar and quickly applied to the body. As a result, the bank creates a vacuum, due to which it is sucked to the skin. After that do slow massaging movements for 5-7 minutes along the spine.

Conduct self-massage with your fingers, lightly moving them in the back area from top to bottom and from the center to the sides.


A good effect of magnetotherapy with the help of various devices for self-use. It is important only to make sure that the device is certified and will not cause harm. In recent years, massager beds with jade rolls and thermal infrared radiation have spread.

Folk remedies

At home, you can do compresses and rubbers with herbal remedies. For example, rubbing apple cider vinegar or a compress of cabbage leaves. They also use kashitsa from black radish, horseradish juice and some other means. All these drugs have a mostly distracting effect, so in an acute period, they should not be treated by themselves without consulting a doctor.

Surgical treatment of

If all possible ways of conservative treatment have already been carried out, and the necessary effect has not been achieved, the question of the expediency of the operation is posed. The operation is absolutely shown when the spinal structures or vessels are compressed, when the intervertebral disc is displaced or the osteophyte sprouts. The operation consists in removing part of the disc, in some cases with subsequent fixation of the vertebrae with metalware. Persistent pain is a relative indication, since the operation heals the patient with osteochondrosis is not always.

Osteochondrosis is a pathology of a multifactorial nature, in which the whole vertebra is involved in the painful process. Because of this, in a number of cases, surgical intervention on one segment provokes the development of osteochondrosis and destabilization of the remaining parts of the spinal column. Therefore, the operation is done only when absolutely necessary.

A common disease - osteochondrosis is associated with disorders in the structure of the intervertebral disc, causing pathological changes in the adjacent vessels, muscles and ligaments. Various parts of the spine can be affected: cervical, thoracic, lumbar.

A comprehensive treatment prescribed by a neurologist will help relieve the aggravation, and improve the patient's condition. But if you do not pay constant attention to the spine, the pain will return again, and the disease will progress. Therefore, after a period of exacerbation and consultation with the attending physician, you can continue treatment at home, combining it with the prescribed course. Also of great importance for treatment is the change in the nature of physical activity, nutrition and lifestyle in general.

Treatment of osteochondrosis at home can be various ways:

  • Physical impact on the spine: therapeutic exercises, surface massage, vacuum cans, bath.
  • Biochemical methods: compresses, ointments, tinctures and decoctions.
  • Complex methods( for example, baths with decoctions of herbs, hot compresses).

Therapeutic gymnastics

Treatment of osteochondrosis at home requires mandatory exercises of exercise therapy. But such exercises are conducted only after relieving the aggravation of the disease. In the complex, the disease includes exercises for extension and flexion of the spine, tilts and turns of the trunk, movements in the lying position. These exercises for clarity are better to look at video clips from the Internet. When practicing, there should be no pain.

Exercise tips

  • The exercise complex should be selected by a specialist taking into account the diagnosis, load level and physical fitness level of the patient.
  • Therapeutic exercises will not relieve pain in the spine, medications, ointments, compresses are used for this. Therapeutic exercise is used to restore the spine.
  • The effect of curative physical education can be obtained only by performing exercises systematically. Movements should be done gently, slowly, without jerking. The amplitude of movements should increase gradually. When doing exercises, you should feel the muscles of your back and neck, feel how the vertebrae move.


Popular home remedy such as massage with honey. Warm honey is applied to the area of ​​the spine and the masseur effortlessly produces infrequent patches clutching and taking away the palms from the back. The most effective is a massage, if it is carried out in a bath after heating the area of ​​the spine. After the massage, the back should be covered with compress paper and wrapped well.

Effective for osteochondrosis canned vacuum massage. The skin of the back is lubricated with warm vegetable or mineral oil. Then the vacuum medical jar is sucked to the skin and makes sliding movements in the spine along certain trajectories. To lubricate the back, you can also use chondroxide ointment. With the use of can massage, blood circulation in the spinal areas improves, oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the inflamed places, regeneration processes are activated. Vacuum massage should be done by a professional masseur.


The bed-massager "Nuga Best" of Korean manufacture has been widely recognized. With the help of a carriage with jade rolls moving along the spine, its soft traction( extension) is carried out. The process occurs due to massaging of the paravertebral muscles, releasing the strangulated nerve roots without affecting the vertebrae. Massage is performed under the weight of the body, absolutely safe and in the treatment of osteochondrosis is very effective. Contraindications: the presence of metal implants in the body and acute infections.


For compresses, you can use a variety of burning plants: black radish, horseradish, garlic, etc. In the form of gruel they are put on a problem place, carefully wrapped and do not take off as much time as possible to endure. Compresses improve blood circulation in the vertebral region, warm up the sore spots, relieving the condition.


Helps to relieve back pain Nanyplast Forte plaster. It has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. The composition of its surface reduces pain for 12 hours. A patch is applied at night or in the morning on any part of the spine. The course of treatment is from 10 days.

Electromagnetic methods of treatment give a good effect. The use of the device "Arthrosustavit" improves metabolism and normalizes blood circulation in tissues.

Therapeutic baths for osteochondrosis

For medicinal baths, the herbs are poured with boiling water, allowed to cool and poured into a bath. In the healing bath you need to lie about 20 minutes. In a bath it is useful to whip the spine with a broom from the nettle.

Bath compositions:

  • Bundle of mint;200 g of birch leaves;a bundle of lemon balm. Pour a bucket of boiling water, cool and pour into the tub.
  • 1.5 kg of pine cones and needles. Cook half an hour in 5 liters of water, cool and add to the bath.
  • 500 g grass sporesha infused 2 hours in boiling water, pour into the bath.

Traditional Therapies

  • Treatment with decoction of bay leaf. This method of treatment is very effective, but requires strict compliance with the scheme.½ pack of bay leaf pour 300 ml of water and boil in enameled dishes for 5 minutes. Having wrapped tightly, insist for 3 hours. Then drink a glass of broth in small sips until sleep. Subsequently, there is a pink discharge. This is due to the intensive dissolution of salts, which irritates the bladder. On the second and third day, repeat the procedure. The solution on each of the days should be fresh. After a week, repeat the treatment. After a few days, you can be sure of the change in the mobility of the joints. Two treatment sessions are sufficient for a year.
  • Fresh chicken egg pour in a glass of vinegar essence. Close the glass with a lid and leave in a dark place for 5 days. Then crush the egg in a glass and mix thoroughly. Add sunflower oil( 1 tbsp.) And the resulting mixture to rub your back.
  • Effective for the treatment of osteochondrosis is a tincture of the following composition. Willow bark( 2 tbsp.) + Lilac bark( 1 tbsp.) + 5 mashed laurel leaves pour 0.5 l of vodka and 50 mg of camphor alcohol. They insist 21 days, shaking daily. After straining, grinding is ready.


For osteochondrosis, it is necessary to limit the use of boiled food, since it is the cooked products that contribute to the deposition of salts. Oxalic salts dissolve with oxalic acid, so you need to consume more raw fruits and vegetables. When they are digested and this acid is formed.

To restore the functions of damaged disks, you need amino acids and minerals. These trace elements are found in cottage cheese, eggs, cheese. To restore the cartilage, you can include biologically active additives in the diet. Their appearance and methods of application should be prescribed by a physician.

One of the factors contributing to the disease is obesity. Diet for osteochondrosis should help to reduce weight. It is recommended to spend unloading days on rice and apples, at least once a week.

There are many methods of treating osteochondrosis at home, but the possibility of their application depends on the type of disease, the stage of its course, the physical condition of the patient. Home treatment can be done only after consulting with your doctor.
