Sciatica, lumbago, lumbodynia, sciatica, neck pain, torakalgiya... Medical words - many, but a symptom of a bad back. The low back pain, neck pain, pain under the shoulder blades... the People who are suffering today, the legions.
According to the World health organization (WHO), back pain suffer from 2/3 of the population of the globe. Studies show that people between the ages of 35 to 45 years of age, the frequency of the back pain is 66.3%. By doing this, 25% of these people pain in the back of a substantial breach of the working capacity and even reduce the social status.
Conventional medicine (allopathy) has developed many ways to cure back pain: medication, physical therapy, blinds, surgery, etc., But they have, in general, are divided into two broad categories. The tools of the first group just rent a symptom of pain, stiffness and inflammation.
The methods of the second group are working with a room structure of the organization, in the first place, with the different departments of the vertebral column. In fact, the main causes of back pain are generally recognized for malformations of the vertebrae, dystrophic-degenerative diseases of the spine or of the muscle weakness of a corset. However, even the orthodox, the doctors recognize the severity of back pain in most cases are not directly with the degree of development of diseases of the spine.
According to the statistics, the treatment of the spine as the cause of the pain in the back in 50% of cases, or even does not result in, or provides only a temporary relief.
Why these measures are ineffective? Osteopathic physicians claim that: in these cases, the cause of suffering is not in the spine. And the pain in the back it is easy to get rid of it, if making a correct diagnosis.
Osteopathy preach an integrated approach not to be limited to the examination of private of symptoms or of certain parts of the body. The body of man in its totality, and the back can be sick for a reason quite unrelated to the state of the bone tissue. Perhaps it is of long date of the injury, deferred operations, diseases of internal organs, infections, inflammation, chronic stress, energy imbalance, lifestyle and professional overload. And the most often present of several factors.
The common causes of disease:
In all these cases, the pain in the back are not only a bony skeleton, but with muscles, ligaments, the position of the internal organs, the circulation, of the work of the nervous system. The spine is that it adapts, adapts to the changes of the clearing, until may. Usually, the real reason for violations is absolutely not where it hurts. And the task of the doctor is to find the cause, establish the correct diagnosis.
In the determination of the reason which has led to a process of the disease are taken into account the anatomical characteristics of man, to the study of the details of the birth (he was born, or with the aid of artificial methods), how did the period from birth to one year, as he spent his childhood, has-t-he exercise. All of these factors could have an impact on the development of the disease.
Then using special techniques, sensitive hands of a specialist screen himself from the pain of the plot. Identifies areas of tension, and spasms, which create a "traction" - from the structure of the body, including the vertebrae, in the direction of the normal position. Using special techniques, osteopaths can remove these tensions, relieve the cramps.
It is proved that when the pain in the back, there are many different biomechanics of the breach in the so-called postural system of the body. She is responsible for the vertical position of the body, hold that the fact, yes, even in the conditions of the earth's attraction, is not simple.
Posture of the system are the nerves, the muscles, the ligaments, the components of the skeleton, the vestibular system of the inner ear, the organs of sight, the receptor of the plant stop, which determines the position of the body in space. The failure of an element of the system disrupts the delicate balance, and it is natural that the state will result in the development of pain in the back.
The doctor-osteopath, wielding, methods of diagnosis postural system is able to identify violations and to eliminate them. Therefore, the osteopathic methodology effectively restore mobility, balance and equilibrium of the body, relieve pain in the back, when the some cases, does not help.
The institutions of St. Petersburg have conducted a study of 140 patients with a diagnosis of "disease of the musculoskeletal system" and "osteochondrosis of the spine". All had pain in the back and the motion constraints. The control group received a standard drug therapy: a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and muscle relaxants. The main group received osteopathic treatment. Depending on the age and the severity of the disease, the groups did not differ.
The results of the treatment assessed as good in 55% of patients of the basic (osteopathy) group (50% of the reference), satisfactory, and 34% of the patients in the two groups. In the osteopathic group of patients improved the balance of the body, increasing the speed and the amplitude of the free movement.
In other words, in most cases, osteopathy can be a safe alternative drug, methods of treatment of the pain in the back.
In many cases, the onset of back pain can be avoided. For this, you need to follow a few simple recommendations.
