Dystrophic changes in the structure of the articular-ligamentous apparatus are one of the main causes of pain in the skeleton. In addition to hernias, osteochondrosis, there are a number of other degenerative diseases that affect the joints and bones of the spine. These include spondylarthrosis. Unlike pathologies that directly destroy intervertebral discs, this disease is characterized by degenerative changes in the components of the vertebral joint.

What is spondylarthrosis?

The diagnosis of spondylarthrosis characterizes degenerative changes in the joints of the spine. The vertebra consists of several components: the body, the arch and 4 articular processes. The processes are connected to each other, forming a joint, which, together with the intervertebral discs, provides stability to the spine. With spondylarthrosis, the articular elements begin to collapse, affecting the entire joint and, above all, the articular cartilage. Most often, the disease accompanies the destruction of discs and develops in parallel with osteochondrosis.

Causes of pathology

The following factors lead to the development of spondylarthrosis:

Stages of the disease

    How to treat the problem?

    Treatment of spondylarthrosis is complex and depends on the localization of degenerative changes and their stage. The goal of therapy is to eliminate the pain syndrome, restore the joints to their former mobility, ease of movement without stiffness.

    With severe pain, the patient is prescribed anti-inflammatory and painkillers. Nevertheless, the basis of treatment is rehabilitation procedures: physiotherapy, massage, restorative physical exercises.

    Massage helps relieve muscle hypertonicity, which increases pain. The procedures also restore normal blood circulation, improving the supply of damaged tissues. According to the results of the massage course, tension is removed from the affected spine..
