The spine is the main element of the musculoskeletal system. Functional disorders and diseases in this part of the body lead to limited mobility and pain. Treatment of the spine should be entrusted only to professionals. Since 2011, the national network of centers “Spine Ambulatory” has been dealing with the effective elimination of problems with the spine and the musculoskeletal system. We have helped thousands of patients, we use proven methods of treatment.
Protrusion of the disc of the spine is the initial stage of the development of an intervertebral hernia. During the disease, a protrusion of the disc wall occurs without rupture of the membrane. If there is no pinched nerve endings, tissue inflammation, muscle spasms, the patient may not feel pain. Most often, violations occur in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions. Timely treatment will help to avoid the formation of intervertebral hernias and possible surgical intervention.
Stages of development of protrusions:
I – against the background of dystrophic changes, there are problems with the trophism of the disc, its dehydration (dehydration) occurs, the height and elasticity decrease, fissures of the fibrous ring are formed.
II – the inner zone of the nucleus is shifted to the edge, the nucleus presses on the fibrous fibers, gradually tearing them.
III – the destruction of the fibrous ring occurs, it becomes thinner, less elastic, the nucleus is located at the extreme layer of the disc.
Protrusions are distinguished by size and localization.
Localization of pathologies is posterior, anterior, lateral (lateral, foraminal, extraforaminal, etc.).
By size (conditionally) there are large (over 6 mm), medium (3-5 mm) and small (up to 2 mm) protrusions.
The peculiarity of the classification and the use of specific methods of treatment depend on localization. For example, a protrusion of 4 mm in size, which is located in the cervical spine, is considered large. In the lumbar region, an 8 mm protrusion may not even cause discomfort.
The causes of the disease can be excessive static and dynamic loads, lifting heavy objects, sudden movements, tilts, back injuries, various curvature of the spine (kyphosis, lordosis, scoliosis), sedentary lifestyle, overweight.
Signs of the disease:
The pain disappears when the person finds a comfortable position. This reduces the pressure on the nerve endings.
For diagnosis, research methods such as radiography, MRI or computed tomography are used, with which you can see the exact location of the protrusion, the direction of the protrusion, and the condition of the spinal canal.
The national network of centers “Spine Ambulatory” has been operating in several large cities of Ukraine since 2011. Patients with acute and chronic back pain are treated here. Doctors use only high-quality and proven methods. In our institution, disc protrusion is eliminated with the help of physical therapy, complex therapeutic massage, VKT restorative kinesitherapy (mechanotherapy), manual correction using the Cypress medical device.
Controlled exercise is a necessary part of the treatment of almost all back problems. The medical complex has proved its effectiveness.
The doctor of the clinic “Ambulatory of the back” prescribes a course of physical therapy according to the results of the examination. Classes are held, including during an exacerbation of the disease. When developing a program, the age of the patient, the place of occurrence of protrusion, and the stage of the disease are taken into account.
Taking into account all the characteristics of the organism, with an individually drawn up treatment plan, the effectiveness exceeds 95%.
The specialist of the “Spine Ambulatory” centers individually determines the frequency of the massage. To relax the muscles and adjust them to the optimal load, massage procedures are prescribed before restorative kinesiotherapy (RCT) or before traction on the Cypress simulator.
The use of massage before and after the procedures demonstrates an excellent therapeutic effect. Doctors of the network of institutions “Spine Ambulatory” own various techniques of therapeutic massage, have extensive experience.
Treatment of the spine using this device provides a wide therapeutic effect and is conditionally divided into three stages: relaxation, correction and consolidation.
At the first stage, the patient restores the basic patterns of the work of the muscular corset and respiratory cycles. In a gentle mode, without weighting agents and additional load, traction (natural traction) is carried out.
During the correction, the device removes clamps and subluxations of the vertebral joints, returns them to the physiological position, and eliminates displacement.
At the final stage, a muscular corset is formed due to a complex of treatment and systematic sessions. During the course, posture is restored, muscles and ligamentous apparatus of joints are strengthened, metabolic processes are restored in tissues. This contributes to getting rid of the pain syndrome, a quick recovery.
Kinesiotherapy (VKT) is a physiotherapeutic procedure designed for the rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal system in the presence of diseases of the spine, joints, for recovery in the postoperative period after injuries. Mechanotherapy is aimed at eliminating pain that occurs during exercise on crossover simulators.
Manual correction is a gentle impact on the spine in order to eliminate the functional limitations that have appeared as a result of protrusion. Classical techniques are segmental massage, mobilization and push manipulation. They should only be performed by experienced physical therapists. It is these specialists who work in the “Spine Ambulatory” centers.
Make an appointment now to save yourself from pain and discomfort in the spine. We use gentle and proven methods of treatment. We will quickly correct your posture and restore the health of your back.
