Features of application of Mexidol, piracetam, glucosamine with cervical osteochondrosis
Mexidol in osteochondrosis has become extensively prescribed by neurologists. Active use of tools was made possible due to the unique properties of the drug. It eliminates the peroxide forms oxygen, which has a damaging effect on nerve cells.
With long-term use increases the content of healthy fats – phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylserine. They reduce the viscosity of the lipid layer and prevent destruction of cell membranes.
Mexidol in cervical osteochondrosis helps to improve blood flow to the brain by increasing intracellular energetic functions of mitochondria. This increases the throughput of the cell, which accelerates the restoration of cell number after injury. An additional advantage of the drug is low toxicity.
Piracetam belongs to the group nootropics. They improve microcirculation of the brain (but only with regular and extended use). The effect of the use of funds is observed only after 2 months.
This medicine is one of the oldest. It was used in the XIX century in the treatment of brain diseases. It is quite cheap, so available for patients.
Modern analogues of piracetam (vanturarita and pramiracetam) are quite expensive, though, and have a more rapid effect.
To improve the therapeutic properties together with nootropics recommend the metabolic drugs. For example, glucosamine sulfate helps to relieve pain syndrome in cervical osteochondrosis. It comes in the form of capsules, tablets and powder, ointments and gels, which makes the tool versatile properties.
If you use more than 6 months, there is improvement of cerebral circulation, improving memory and attention. However, on average physicians prescribe glucosamine for the degenerative disc disease intramuscularly for 20 days.
The Mechanism of positive influence of drugs on the body is to restore the intervertebral discs, reducing compression of the nerve roots.
Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are the basis for the growth of new cartilage. Only with long-term use of drugs you can count on the efficiency described above.
Monotherapy with chondroprotectors in lesions of the cervical spine not had a positive impact on the intervertebral cartilage. Only in combination with other means can achieve the disappearance of symptoms of degenerative-dystrophic diseases of the vertebral column.
