Most people at least once in their lives have experienced a sharp pain in the lumbar region when the torso bends or twists unsuccessfully. Some of them faced pain of such intensity that they had to freeze for a while in an uncomfortable position under the fear of experiencing it again when trying to take a more comfortable position. These symptoms are typical for the development of a disease such as lumbar osteochondrosis.
Most often, osteochondrosis of the lumbar spine occurs due to disproportionate distribution of the vertebral load. For example, during a prolonged sitting position, when one muscle group is completely relaxed, while others are tense, an incorrect distribution of muscle tone occurs, therefore a specific part of the spine is under significant stress than it can withstand. As a result, by dramatically changing the position of the body, displacement of strained intervertebral discs can occur, their squeezing, which provokes the formation of hernias.
The structure of the spine allows you to endure a colossal load for some time, but testing its capabilities, of course, is not recommended. The fact is that even if the spine is hardened in this regard, that is, its owner constantly performs physical exercises, this does not insure against problems with intervertebral discs of one nature or another with constant overload. With constant tension, the intervertebral discs are compressed, from which the spinal nerves provoke the development of radicular syndrome, which to some extent limits a person's mobility, and also makes one experience periodic pain and discomfort.
Lumbar osteochondrosis implies the presence of dull aching pain localized in the lumbar spine. Sometimes some patients complain of such symptoms, accompanied by a return to the lower extremities when coughing, sneezing, a sharp change in body position, and also with heavy loads.
Osteochondrosis of the lumbar spine is exacerbated when it is impossible to perform habitual movements or perform habitual exercises. With hypothermia, symptoms such as lumbago appear, that is, a sharp pain in the lumbar region.
There are also other symptoms of the disease, for example:
The normal position of the back in a healthy person is vertical, tending upward, so any other position of the spine is a consequence of a pinched spinal cord, that is, lumbar osteochondrosis. A patient with pinched spinal discs may even suffer from malfunctions in the urinary system and defecation disorders, as well as incorrect sensitivity of the genitals.
There are also additional symptoms that occur with osteochondrosis of the lumbar spine:
The result of the therapeutic effect on the spine is the complete elimination of factors affecting the spinal nerves in one way or another, complete restoration of the musculoskeletal system, complete neutralization of the characteristic changes for this disease.
Treatment of osteochondrosis of the lumbar spine consists of four stages.
One of the many fairly effective gymnastic exercises consists of a set of such movements.
Performing this gymnastics eliminates some of the symptoms of the disease. In particular, pain. By relaxing the spine in this way, you can not only get rid of some symptoms of osteochondrosis, but also foresee its occurrence, that is, therapeutic gymnastics has both therapeutic and prophylactic character.
