Symptoms of osteochondrosis in women
Osteochondrosis is a degenerative-dystrophic pathology, which leads to a disruption in the nutrition of bones and cartilage of the spine. As a result of the development of osteochondrosis, the intervertebral discs become denser and thinner. The vertebrae are pinched, which leads to their protrusion beyond the vertebral column. This leads to pinching of the nerve roots and the onset of inflammatory processes. The main symptom of the disease is pain in the area of the affected intervertebral discs and in places that are even indirectly associated with them.
The main causes of
The disease develops due to:
- physically passive lifestyle;
- excessive loads on the spine or their uneven distribution( for example, when wearing weights always in only one hand);
- disorders of posture;
- wearing uncomfortable shoes( high heels);
- genetic predisposition;
- of bad habits;
- inadequate intake of calcium and vitamin D;
- irrational power;
- age changes.
Special symptoms of osteochondrosis in women
Symptoms of osteochondrosis may differ depending on the localization of the pathological process. The disease can affect the cervical, thoracic, lumbar or sacral parts of the spine.
Symptoms of osteochondrosis in women and men are very similar. Differences are noticeable only in lumbar osteochondrosis, as this disease causes menstrual disorders in women
Symptoms of the disease are usually manifested in women at an earlier age. This is due to the fact that most men lead a more active lifestyle.
The manifestation of pathology in the thoracic department
For chest osteochondrosis is characterized by:
- Frequent occurrence of headaches and dizziness. Painful sensations are localized, usually in the parietal-temporal or occipital areas.
- Because of the squeezing of the nerve roots, numbness of the limbs arises.
- Noise in the ears and ringing.
- In the elderly, frequent loss of consciousness is likely.
- Hysterectomy and hoarseness.
- Visual impairment and tenderness of the eyes.
- Frequent occurrence of hiccoughs and shortness of breath attacks. Blood pressure changes.
- Constant tension of the neck muscles and, as a result, snoring.
The combination of these symptoms points to the osteochondrosis of the thoracic region almost certainly. However, self-diagnosis and self-medication is not recommended even for those who are sure of their diagnosis. To determine the exact pathology, you should consult a doctor.
Symptoms of chest osteochondrosis
Osteochondrosis of the thoracic region is less common than other types of pathology. This is due to the fact that the chest area is less pronounced loads, which, moreover, are distributed more evenly.
Symptoms of chest osteochondrosis appear only at the stage of disease progression, so when they appear, you need to see a doctor urgently
. The main symptoms of the pathology are:
- pain when the arm is raised or tilted;
- painful deep breaths and exhalations;
- severe pain in the spine between the shoulder blades;
- appearance of "goosebumps" and "goosebumps" too often, numbness in some areas of the skin;
- pain in the heart.
Symptoms of lumbar injury
Symptoms of lumbar spine osteochondrosis are quite typical. In lumbar osteochondrosis, women are observed:Also read: Signs of breast chondrosis
- Aching in the lower back pain. She can irradiate in the leg. Excessive tension of the muscles of the back.
- Severe pain when making attempts to bend over or make a sharp move. Stiffness of movements of the lumbar region, sometimes - all the back.
- The formation of a wrong posture.
- Pain after prolonged sitting.
- Pain in the lumbar region when lifting heavy objects.
- Varicose veins.
- Disturbance of the menstrual cycle.
Symptoms of sacral osteochondrosis
This type of disease is less common. It inevitably leads to the spread of defeat pathology and lumbar spine. The peculiarity of manifestation of this type of disease is that they depend on the stage of development of the pathological process:
- For the first stage of development of sacral osteochondrosis, the appearance of painful sensations in the region of the loin and / or sacrum is characteristic.
- At the next stage, the signs of the disease are amplified and their number increases. To the symptomatic picture is added numbness of the limbs, increased sweating, frequent pain attacks. The attack can be accompanied by an increase in body temperature, which causes excessive sweating. The onset of all these symptoms is associated with nerve transmission. Lower extremities often become numb and almost always cold. Pain in the sacral region can be given to the hip, leg or even to the heel, permeating the entire leg from the sacrum to the bottom.
- The third stage is characterized by impaired motor activity. At this stage, there is a high probability of intervertebral hernias.
- In the fourth stage, the spine is deformed, the patient can not practically move independently. In this case, the patient is assigned a disability.
To avoid serious consequences, for general health it is necessary to consult a doctor if the first signs of any of the forms of osteochondrosis occur. The initial symptoms may be mild, they can be recognized only if you carefully listen to the signals of your body. Timely treatment allows you to avoid surgical intervention. Treatment in the early stages gives a pronounced effect and quickly restores health.
Symptoms and signs of osteochondrosis of the cervical spine
Contents of the article:
- Classification of symptoms in the disease
- Lack of air
- Noise and ringing in the ears
- Pharynx symptoms
- Visual impairment
- Loss of consciousness
- Instability of pressure
Osteochondrosis is a pathological change in the musculoskeletal system, in which the intervertebral discs and joints are destroyed. This disease is so common that some of its signs are observed in 75% of people over thirty.
Both one and several departments of the spine may be affected, depending on which clinic the diseases( i.e., the totality of the manifestations of the disease) will be different. The greatest burden falls on the lumbar region, so he suffers most often. However, signs of cervical osteochondrosis, as a rule, cause much more problems. This is due to the fact that in this area there is a large number of nerve fibers and endings, as well as blood vessels that supply blood to the brain.
Classification of symptoms in
The osteochondrosis clinic of the cervical spine may be associated with a violation of three body systems:
Direct compression and disruption of the integrity of the spinal cord passing through the spinal canal. These signs are quite rare, only in far-reaching cases.
The effect of the pathological process on the peripheral nervous system: that is, on the spines that depart from the spinal cord, which are located in the immediate vicinity of the foci of destruction of bone-cartilaginous tissue.
Disturbance of blood flow along the vertebral arteries, which take an active part in the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the cells of the brain.
Spine in a cut, top view
Let's talk about the most common symptoms in more detail.
Pain sensations in osteochondrosis in the cervical spine are the most frequent symptom. They can be localized either directly in the neck, and spread to the shoulders and occipital muscles, and also accompanied by a headache. In the latter case, migraine-like conditions occur, when conventional analgesics are ineffective.
Nausea and belching of the air with osteochondrosis in the cervical spine are associated with impaired blood flow through the vessels of the brain. This symptom often leads to a significant decrease in appetite and body weight, and the body may be deficient in nutrients. Sometimes the patient not only has nausea, but also indomitable vomiting, which can be provoked by head turns, slopes and even ordinary walking. This is due to the violation of blood flow through the vertebral arteries and the insufficient supply of oxygen to the inner ear, where the center of equilibrium is located.
Lack of air
A feeling of air shortage that develops when the cervical spine is affected is a symptom of irritation of the diaphragmatic nerve( this nerve is part of the cervical plexus and is involved in the regulation of the depth and frequency of breathing).The patient has difficulty breathing, the inability to breathe in full breast - all this leads to the fact that a person begins to lack oxygen and breathlessness up to choking.
At the same time, there may be nighttime bouts of breathing, which, as a rule, are accompanied by snoring. Especially often they occur when the head is awkward during sleep. If the room lacks access to fresh air saturated with oxygen, then a person experiences hypoxia( ie oxygen starvation - a lower oxygen content in the tissues).Because of all this, he often wakes up tired, and during the whole day there is weakness and malaise. With a chronic lack of oxygen, irreversible changes in brain tissue can occur, which lead to a decrease in memory and attention.
Noise and ringing in the ears
The vestibular apparatus is only supplied from the vertebral arteries system, so for cervical disorders, symptoms associated with impairment of the inner ear function are observed quite often: it is noise and ringing in the ears. Also, a general decrease in hearing can be added to the sound sensations. Together, these symptoms are called cochlear( cochlear) syndrome.
It is quite difficult to determine the relationship of this syndrome with the lesion of the spinal column. But with the defeat of the cervical department, a distinctive feature is that noise in the ears appears with a prolonged stay in a forced position, whereas in other diseases this is not observed.
Sometimes, the only manifestation of osteochondrosis of the cervical spine are, so-called, pharyngeal symptoms. They include a feeling of perspiration in the throat or foreign body in the throat, as well as dryness, itching and difficulty swallowing. These signs are associated with a violation of the nerve-vascular trunks coming from the spinal cord. It is important to remember that similar manifestations can be observed in other diseases: for example, in the inflammatory or tumor process.
Since the visual analyzer is supplied with not only vertebral arteries, but also sleepy arteries, the disruption of its function is less common. To the appearance of visual symptoms, patients with atherosclerosis of cerebral arteries or low blood pressure are prone.
Most often, patients complain of:
- fogging of objects or sensation of shroud before the eyes,
- reduction of visual acuity,
- flickering of dots or swimming of "sorinok",
- violation of focusing on any object.
In this case, for a short period of time, vision can become better, sometimes worse.
In this case( with osteochondrosis) the use of glasses or gymnastics for the eyes does not eliminate the symptoms, while against the background of treatment of the spinal column the condition improves significantly.
Sudden loss of consciousness
Sudden loss of consciousness( syncopal conditions) develops in patients with osteochondrosis in the cervical spine due to a temporary cessation of blood flow to the cerebral arteries. At the heart of this condition is a pronounced spasm of the arteries, which arises in response to the irritation of the nerve endings by deformed bony spines of the vertebrae.
In this case, the patient quickly wakes up, if you translate it into a horizontal position with your legs raised. Do this in order to increase the outflow of blood from the veins of the legs and thereby improve the blood supply to the brain. Very rarely within a few days after an attack, verbal and motor disturbances can be observed, but since the circulatory arrest was short-lived - all these symptoms are reversible.
Instability of arterial pressure
Instability of arterial pressure arises from the violation of the blood supply of the medulla oblongata in which the vasomotor center is located.
The clinic of osteochondrosis of the cervical spine often begins with dizziness. It arises from the decrease in the supply of oxygen to the semicircular tubules of the inner ear, which are responsible for the equilibrium and are located in the brain. This symptom can be accompanied by vibrational movements of the pupils vertically or horizontally( nystagmus).
Temperature in osteochondrosis in the cervical spine usually does not deviate from the norm. Any increase in body temperature indicates the presence of an infection in the body or another factor leading to the activation of the immune system( tumor, autoimmune process).With osteochondrosis, only a local increase in skin temperature( hyperemia) can be observed in the immediate area of the lesion( that is, in the neck region).
It is important to remember that if you have determined signs of osteochondrosis of the cervical spine - it is necessary to seek medical help. Timely diagnosis, treatment, massage and exercise therapy will slow or stop the process of destruction of the spine and eliminate unpleasant manifestations of the disease.
Symptoms of osteochondrosis
The insidiousness of the disease consists in the fact that initially it is asymptomatic, and only with complications there are the first symptoms of osteochondrosis of the spine. First of all, the disease affects the bone system and ligaments: degeneration of the spinal tissues occurs, which is expressed in the lesions of the discs, joint surfaces of the vertebrae, and its ligamentous system.
In recent years, the disease has significantly "rejuvenated": the disease may appear as early as 13-15 years. Also statistics show that more than 50% of people on the planet who have reached the age of 30, suffer from osteochondrosis.
Methods for determining the type of osteochondrosis
Many do not know what symptoms of osteochondrosis occur, except for back pain. Indeed, the disease is considered the cause of painful sensations in almost 85% of cases. However, in severe complications, for example, in the intervertebral hernia, sensitivity may be impaired, muscle atrophy may appear, and pain spread to the head, limbs and internal organs.
Depending on the location of pain, you can determine the type of disease. Lumbar osteochondrosis, which occurs most often, is characterized by pelvic and lumbar pain, thoracic - pain in the internal organs, cervical osteochondrosis causes painful sensations in the head and shoulder area, the sacral type is expressed by pain giving to the lower limbs or heel.
Symptoms of exacerbation of osteochondrosis include excessive tension or numbness of the muscles. As a result, the blood vessels that participate in the blood supply of the brain are transmitted, which is manifested by severe headache, weakness, dizziness, noise in the head, double vision or vomiting.
Signs and symptoms of chest osteochondrosis
Symptoms of the osteochondrosis of the thoracic region are rather specific:
- painful sensations in the interblade area;
- prolonged, pressing pain in the left side of the sternum;
- pain with deep breathing;
- discomfort with torso;
- pain when raising or folding the upper limbs;
- numbness of the skin.
The danger of breast type of osteochondrosis is that it can be confused with other diseases. For example, angina pectoris or pneumonia can be diagnosed, as the main symptoms of the diseases coincide. The main difference between the osteochondrosis of the thoracic region is the type of pain: with angina, the pain has a diffuse and dull character, and when the nerves are jammed - point and acute-piercing( it is not difficult for the patient to point the finger with the exact place).
Symptoms of cervical osteochondrosis
The main symptom is a sharp pain in the occipital or temporal region, which often appears on the awakening or sharp turn of the head of the .There may also be a "vertebral artery syndrome," characterized by severe pulsating pain in the head, noise in the ears, dizziness, flickering of dots in front of the eyes.
To additional, more rare, symptoms can be attributed - loss of consciousness, hearing and vision impairment, fluctuations in blood pressure, hoarseness and snoring due to the constant tension of the neck muscles, lowering the sensitivity of the skin of the neck and face.
Symptoms and symptoms of lumbar osteochondrosis
Lumbar manifestations of the disease occur most often. . They include the following symptoms:
- lumbargia( low back pain), which under physical exertion gives to the lower limb;
- muscular tension in the back;
- sharp back pain when tilted;
- varicose veins and spasm of the vessels of the feet;
- numbness and tingling in the limbs;
- inability to have sex with men;
- violation of menstruation in women.
Signs and symptoms of sacral osteochondrosis
Symptoms of sacral osteochondrosis depend on the stage of the disease.
- The first stage is characterized by unpleasant painful sensations in the lumbar or sacral region.
- The second stage is the wear of the discs, which expand, press on the nerve bundles. As a result, bouts of pain become more frequent and prolonged: the patient can even freeze in one position. At the time of an attack, the body temperature rises, after which a strong sweating and numbness of the limbs begins.
- In the third stage, the symptoms of the osteochondrosis of the sacrum are expressed in violation of motor activity and the appearance of hernias.
- In the fourth stage, there is a pronounced deformation of the spine, in which the patient stops moving and becomes disabled.
Methods of therapy of the disease
Treatment of symptoms of osteochondrosis will be successful if you combine conservative and folk methods of therapy .Therefore, experienced doctors do not use any one method, but carry out a set of measures.
1. Symptoms and treatment of osteochondrosis with conservative methods:
- Physiotherapy exercises, including a set of simple exercises( tilting, stretching) and swimming.
- Massage( relaxes the muscular corset, thereby reducing the compression of the nerve bundles).
- Drug therapy.
- Physiotherapy and reflexotherapy( used to relieve pain).
- Extension of the spinal column.
2. Symptoms and treatment of spinal osteochondrosis with folk remedies. Folk methods include grinding with herbal infusions and using compresses. To relieve pain and relax the muscular corset, apply ointment to the inflamed area, rub a few minutes, then cover with a cloth( preferably a woolen shawl).You can also make infusion of sage, lemon balm, burdock or mint and carefully rub into the affected area, then wrap it with polyethylene.
As can be seen, the symptoms of osteochondrosis are manifold and can imitate another pathology. Therefore, if there is even the slightest suspicion of the presence of such a disease, urgent medical consultation is necessary.
Cervical osteochondrosis - symptoms, treatment, exercises with cervical osteochondrosis
Cervical osteochondrosis is one of the first places in the list of the most common diseases. The development of osteochondrosis of the cervical spine is facilitated by a long time in a tense, incorrect posture( for example, when working at a computer).Often the cause of the disease is the prolonged impact on the spinal column of vibration( for example, when driving a car or in work related to the use of construction equipment).
In addition, the development of osteochondrosis is promoted by hereditary predisposition, hypodynamia, uncomfortable bed, incorrect posture and a number of other factors.
Causes of cervical osteochondrosis
As mentioned above, there are a number of reasons that contribute to the development of cervical osteochondrosis. Here are some of them:
- Incorrect food and overweight. They cause a metabolic disorder, as a result of which the inflow of necessary nutrients and oxygen to the spine worsens. There are degenerative changes in the body of the vertebrae, which leads to the development of osteochondrosis.
- Chronic diseases( eg, tonsillitis), as well as hypothermia, colds, viral pathologies.
- Mechanical factors. A high pillow or an excessively soft bed leads to a disruption in the supply of the vertebrae and their gradual deformation.
- Hypodynamia. With a sedentary lifestyle, the muscles of the neck become weaker, as a result of which the load on the spine increases, which provokes the development of cervical osteochondrosis.
- Professional Harm. Lead to microtrauma of the cervical spine, which is fraught with the development of dystrophic changes in the intervertebral discs and in the cervical vertebrae.
- Congenital malformations and curvature of the spine.
Symptoms of cervical osteochondrosis
There are a number of symptoms that are characteristic of cervical osteochondrosis:
- Reduced vision and "flies" before the eyes. Occur when the innervation and blood supply of the optical apparatus is disturbed.
- Headaches. This symptom usually occurs at the onset of the disease. First, the pain is localized in the nape of the neck, then passes into the temporal part of the head. A characteristic sign of pain in cervical osteochondrosis is that it does not pass when taking analgesics. In addition, painful sensations increase with prolonged stays in a static position( sedentary work, sleep).
- Loss of consciousness. This symptom often occurs in elderly people and is due to the fact that the age-related oxygen starvation of the brain, associated with the development of atherosclerosis, is exacerbated by a violation of brain nutrition in osteochondrosis. The combination of these factors leads to a complete cessation of blood supply in some parts of the brain, which causes fainting.
- Sensitivity disorder and discomfort in the arm and shoulder area. In particularly neglected cases paresis and paralysis of the hands are possible.
- Asphyxia, shortness of breath, fear of death. All these symptoms occur as a result of irritation of the diaphragmatic nerve.
- Noises in the ears, nausea, dizziness. As a result of compression of the vessels and nerves of the neck, there is a decrease in blood flow and deterioration of innervation in the region of semicircular tubules and cochlea, resulting in the above symptoms.
- Static phenomena. These include the limitation of mobility of the neck and subluxation of vertebral joints.
Treatment of cervical osteochondrosis
Treatment of cervical osteochondrosis is aimed at reducing the static load on the spine, improving its blood supply and nutrition. Treatment of cervical osteochondrosis includes:
- The course of curative physical education( selected for each patient individually).
- Physiotherapy( administration of drugs using phonophoresis or electrophoresis).
- Carrying out of courses of massage at a cervical osteochondrosis. Massage helps to relieve muscle spasm, which leads to a reduction in pain.
- Medication therapy. Drugs for osteochondrosis have a trophic and metabolic effect. They help improve the blood supply to the spinal cord and brain, which allows you to get rid of constant dizziness and reduce pressure fluctuations. Another group of drugs is used to relieve muscle spasms and stop the headache.
- Collar of the Shantz. Using this device, skeletal traction is performed. It is used infrequently and helps to restore the normal anatomical structure of the spine.
It is necessary to know that the treatment of cervical osteochondrosis should be conducted only under the guidance of an experienced specialist. Self-medication in this case is unacceptable!
Exercises for cervical osteochondrosis
Therapeutic exercises for cervical osteochondrosis include:
- Exercises in the supine position:
- Lying on the back, the head is lifted up, the chin stretches to the ceiling. After 10 seconds, the head returns to its original position. The number of repetitions is 10.
- Lying on its side, the head is raised parallel to the surface and fixed in this position for 10 seconds, then returned to its original position. The number of repetitions is 10 on each side.
- Lying on the back, on a flat surface, the head is lifted up, held for 10 seconds, returned to its original position. Number of repetitions is 10.
- Exercises in standing position:
- Starting position( feet shoulder width apart, hands at the seams).The movement of the chin is made, as if the digit zero is being written, then one and so on, to ten. This exercise is conveniently done at work to relieve tension and relax the muscles of the neck.
- Starting position. The head turns to the side, the chin stretches to the shoulder for 10 seconds. Then the turn is repeated the other way. The number of repetitions is 15.
- The starting position. The head tilts forward, the muscles of the neck tense. After 10 seconds, the head slowly tilts back, but not until the end. After another 10 seconds, the head bends forward again. The number of repetitions is 15. You can not do a circular rotation of the head. This further injures the neck.
Signs of osteochondrosis. Cervical, thoracic and lumbar osteochondrosis.| |Osteohondrozz.ruHondroz Published: 4 August 2014
Osteochondrosis is a serious degenerative-dystrophic disease that disrupts the nutrition of bones and cartilage in the body. Signs of osteochondrosis are the pain that occurs in places directly or indirectly associated with the intervertebral discs.
Statistics state that first signs of osteochondrosis can begin to manifest at the age of 30 years .Signs of osteochondrosis in women are the same as in men, however, they can manifest much earlier. The fact is that men tend to drive more active way of life , which prevents development of of this disease or temporarily delays this moment for a later period.
For osteochondrosis of any kind( for both men and women ) there is an group of certain signs of , which directly indicate the onset of the development of the disease.
- The first sign of osteochondrosis, this is a violation of the normal state of the spine. Because of the displacement of the vertebral disks, the posture slightly worsens, and stoop appears. Sometimes there may be pain in the spine or neck, but their frequency is quite rare, and the patient is likely not to pay attention to it. Painful urges can be attributed to the fact that the patient allegedly blew his neck or accumulated fatigue from prolonged and immobile work.
- Fibrous ring undergoes gradual disruption, which causes pain in some areas of the spine to start regularly. The pain arises from pinching the nerve endings of the spine, which means that the body has to start adapting to a new condition.
- The appearance of a hernia is very a bright sign of osteochondrosis .Hernias occur due to the complete destruction of the fibrous ring, directly indicating the appearance of osteochondrosis.
Signs of cervical and thoracic osteochondrosis are defined enough easily by , so do not be lazy and leave this problem without attention.
Tip. If you feel a regular pain in the neck or spine( and not only), it is worth seriously thinking about taking action. Nobody likes to visit doctors, but this is not required! There are many ways to prevent and slow the progression of the disease. Do not forget that osteochondrosis can cause disability!
Symptoms of cervical osteochondrosis.
Signs of cervical osteochondrosis in women and men are quite simple. The following ten signs will help to easily determine the cervical osteochondrosis.
- Regular occurrence of headaches, the causes of which are difficult to determine( no bad weather, magnetic storms and physical aspects).
- The gait and sharpness of movements are broken, the effect of "drunken gait" appears.
- Not a rare phenomenon in this disease is dizziness in cervical osteochondrosis.
- Frequent occurrence of pain or strain in the eyes.
- Regular sign of cervical osteochondrosis, this is the occurrence of ringing or noise in the ears.
- In men, snoring can appear abruptly, which indicates a constant tension of the muscles in the neck.
- Changes in voice. This is a known sign of cervical osteochondrosis, when the voice of the patients becomes hoarse, then hoarse, and so on.
- Numbness of the extremities, especially the fingers. Because of the compression of nerves in the spine, this phenomenon occurs quite regularly.
- In elderly people, due to a lack of blood flow caused by osteochondrosis, there may be loss of consciousness.
- If certain nerve nerves in the cervical region become irritated, there may be a feeling of lack of air or hiccups.
Signs of osteochondrosis of the cervical spine are fairly open, therefore, it is usually not difficult to diagnose the disease itself.
On how far the disease has gone, the brightness of the expression of the above characteristics will depend.
Signs of osteochondrosis of the thoracic spine.
It is known that osteochondrosis in the thoracic department of occurs much less often than in other parts of the body. This is due to the fact that the load here is distributed more evenly, and part of it passes from the back to the ribs.
If we continue comparing the signs of osteochondrosis of the thoracic region with the cervical, it can be noted that the signs of chest osteochondrosis appear when the disease already began to progress .
Nevertheless, these characteristics still should take into account , in order to be prepared and have time to get rid of the disease.
- Pain occurring in the area between the shoulder blades or in the space between the ribs during the rotation of the trunk.
- Involuntary tension of pectoral muscles and abdominal muscles.
- One of the known signs of osteochondrosis of the thoracic spine is numbness or "goose bumps" in the chest or legs. The sensation and the area in which it is possible to sense it depend on the specifically damaged spinal disc .
- Because of chest osteochondrosis, there may be a violation of the genital organs and a decrease in male potency.
- It often happens that the osteochondrosis of the thoracic region can be confused with other diseases that cause pain in the heart, kidneys and liver.
Despite all the vagueness, these signs of chest osteochondrosis can be useful if there are suspicions of osteochondrosis .In case of doubt, it is best to consult a doctor to find out about the condition of the body for sure.
It's never too late to be treated for osteochondrosis!
Symptoms of lumbar osteochondrosis.
It should be noted that signs of osteochondrosis of the lumbar region are in many respects similar to the previously presented symptoms of of other types of disease. Therefore, further more typical signs will be written out, which should be paid the most attention.
If these characteristics are present in the compartment with the previous ones, you can make a reasonable suspicion of lumbar spine osteochondrosis.
- When lifting even not very heavy objects, painful sensations arise in the lower back.
- Pain in the lower back arises after a long sitting.
- One of the signs of lumbar osteochondrosis, often associated with a disease, is a wrong posture. In patients, lordosis is poorly expressed and the muscles of the lower back are poorly developed.
- Patients can not bend the big toe, and also tingling of the toes.
- Temporary paralysis is possible in the buttocks or legs, and in addition, the loss of the ability to move independently.
Now, knowing the signs of osteochondrosis, it is not difficult to diagnose the disease independently. However, it should be understood that one diagnosis is not sufficient for , the disease requires the treatment of , and the sooner it starts, the better.
