Exercise (gymnastics, exercises, physical therapy) in osteochondrosis of the thoracic
Exercise in breast osteochondrosis is aimed at strengthening muscle tone, which should keep the axis of your spine in the correct position. Tasks exercises for strengthening the spine is also aimed at increasing the range of motion of the spinal segment, increasing the mobility of the ribs and strengthening of the costal-vertebral joints.
Another goal of exercise is to relax the deep muscles of the back, if not landing in the chair with the course of time come to a state of hypertonus. In order to overcome muscle tension will have to regularly perform exercise therapy. The only way you can count on the fact that gymnastics will prevent the progression of the disease.
You Should understand that exercises should be performed correctly. Otherwise it is impossible to avoid the complications of incorrect therapy is the formation of the stiffness of individual groups of skeletal muscles, which over time will enhance the degree of curvature.
Gymnastics in osteochondrosis of the thoracic are also intended to strengthen ventilation. When asymmetric toned musculature intercostal spaces acquire a different width, edge shift, which creates difficulties in breathing.
To prevent violations of pulmonary ventilation at the same time classic exercises for degenerative-dystrophic diseases of the spine is rational to apply exercises Sokolova.
Their use is also eliminated pain on inspiration, occur in patients with diseases of the spinal column. In the opinion of the doctors of the difficulties of ventilation increase the risk of developing inflammation of the pulmonary alveoli, since the disease organism is difficult to fight with alien bacteria and viruses that have penetrated in the upper respiratory tract.
exercise therapy in breast osteochondrosis not only eliminates the pain between the shoulder blades. It normalizes vertebral blood supply, which prevents the defeat of the cartilage of the intervertebral discs.
Charging in breast osteochondrosis requires compliance with the following principles:
- Choose exercises that do not bring pain;
- Intensity and range of motion gradually increases;
- at the same time with statistical and dynamic loads, use gymnastics Sokolova;
- physiotherapy (physical therapy) can be used as a special marker of the disease. If any of the exercises in the initial stages cause pain, they can come back for periodic check of the effectiveness of treatment. So checked the progress of therapy for pathology;
- During charging cannot be overloaded skeletal muscles. Exercises should be performed at short intervals, but regularly. It is better to alternate with rest and by wearing orthopedic corset;
- it is Impossible to do sharp movements.
The Above guidelines must be followed, regardless of which charging is performed by the person is a medical or respiratory by Sokolova.
Attention! Before pursuing treatment, you must eliminate the causes that lead to degenerative diseases. The pathology of internal organs should treat the disease.
especially dangerous is diabetes mellitus. It disrupted the flow of the glucose into the tissues. This quickly destroyed the intervertebral discs, which leads to progression of curvature.
It is Important to maintain correct posture. In case of incorrect position of the spine while sitting on a chair, wearing heavy backpacks is not only a deformity of the spine, but hypertonicity of skeletal muscle. As a result, charging is carried out after the relaxing procedures (taking a warm bath, prescribing muscle relaxants).
There are rules that should be observed in persons with pathology of the vertebral column:
- While sitting on the chair load should be evenly distributed on both feet. Don't stand long on one foot. Do not put one leg over the other. When standing, pay attention to the shoulders, which should be positioned symmetrically;
- Sit with a straight back. Agodini place near the rear of the chair. Make sure that the waist fits snugly against the backrest. It is advisable to purchase a chair, the back of which perfectly matches the physiological curves of the spine;
- Charging must be done regularly, but do not try to pump up the muscle fibers. In diseases of the spine more efficiently strengthen the elasticity of the skeletal muscles, than the growth of power of the muscles.
Examples of exercises
Gymnastics in osteochondrosis of the thoracic doctor. Below is a sample list of exercises:
- Relax and stand straight, so the spine was located on the vertical line. The lower limbs should be relaxed. Place the feet parallel. The head point right. Place your hands along the seams. Bend your arms at the elbow joint and lift the brush up to shoulder level. According to the method Sokolova should inhalation take the hands back and forward to expose the chest. On the exhale return to the starting position. Duration of repeats 10-15 times;
- Squeeze infists hands and put them behind his back. Press on the vertebrae. Give the chest on the inhale. Press down with the back on the vertebrae. Gradually take your hands down, massaging each spinal vertebra. On the exhale return to the starting position. The number of repetitions 2-3
- Push the back of my hand on the floor. Get elbows in the ribs. Without lifting your feet off the floor, torso to the table. Stretch the spinal table this way for 10 seconds;
- Stand up straight and position the upper extremity at the seams. Turn your body to the side.
Remember, exercise in breast osteochondrosis should be aimed not so much at strengthening the muscle strength how to increase the elasticity of muscle fibers.
Describes the set of exercises should be done daily. Before you begin treatment, talk with your doctor. It needs to assign a charge. Do not make movements that are specialist not recommended.
exercise therapy for degenerative diseases should perform for several years. Only that it is possible to achieve a positive effect of the combination therapy. To teach students to monitor their own feelings. Define what exercises are beneficial and which are harmful. When pain reduce the strength and range of motion. Avoid exercise that will increase hypertonicity of skeletal muscle.
