The influence of osteochondrosis on the heart – premature beats, arrhythmia, tachycardia
The Influence of osteochondrosis on the heart caused not only by the infringement of the nerve roots in the thoracic region, where you can take cardiac nerve plexus. They participate in the regulation of the heart and internal organs.
Are significantly influenced by degenerative-dystrophic diseases of the spine on blood pressure. Under the elevated movement of nerve impulses vessels spazmiruyutsya. Against this background, increases the load on the heart, so in diseases of the vertebral column observed hypertension.
About these diseases and their relationship with pathology of the spinal column talk more in the article.
How the heart is affected with the disease
Beats osteochondrosis manifest. Palpitations initially, there is a short. When bending, flexing or heavy physical exertion compromised the nerve root. If there is nerve compression in the thoracic region, disrupted the work of the heart muscle – the myocardium.
If the symptom appears a long time, high probability of chronic hypoxia of the heart muscle. Arrythmia when the disease is only the first sign of pathology. Periodic involuntary contractions of the heart first appear only during intense physical activity. When the myocardium is not enough oxygen to push the blood accumulated in the chambers of the heart, required additional reductions.
Other causes of palpitations:
- nervous feelings;
- emotional stress
- cholecystitis and osteochondrosis;
- inflammation of the lung tissue.
Minor contractions appear in healthy people. Before you treat the disease, you should understand its causes.
Thoracic degenerative disc disease and arrhythmia – combined types of pathology. Due to a slipped disc pinching the nerve is formed by nerve roots. If pinched nerve the cardiac, develops arrhythmia (disturbance of heart rhythm synchrony). At the same time, the increased size of the heart can lead to degenerative disc disease and scoliosis of the vertebral column.
The Doctors isolated the premature beats against the background of rising impulses of the vagus nerve. Physical activity, adequate to the age peculiarities of the organism, do not cause hemodynamic disorders and contribute to the strengthening of muscle tissues, including myocardium. Too strong training form hypoxia of skeletal muscle.
Palpitations, arrhythmia and extrasystole States are interconnected. The cyclic mechanism of the cardiac pathology must be addressed from the early stages to prevent more serious problems – coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction.
disruptions in the hearts appear in the background of cervical degenerative disc disease. The mechanism of formation of this disease is closely associated with compression of the vertebral artery. This vessel nourishes the blood the fourth part of brain tissue. In lack of oxygen in brain tissue hypoxia is formed. This disease leads to impaired Central innervation of the internal organs. Against this background, it is difficult to eliminate interruptions in the heart.
Obviously, above-described pathological States better identify at an early stage.
The Symptoms of degenerative disc disease with pathology of cardiac activity:
- Strong points in the chest (increased heart rate).
- Voltage between the shoulder blades.
- Periodic light-headedness.
- Feeling short of breath and anxiety.
- Sweating, fever, and General discomfort.
- Amplified pulse with periodic strong wave – contraction.
- Volume ekstrasystolichniy emissions above normal (when measuring medical pressure cuff).
Degenerative changes of the thoracic spine, the initial degree may not deliver inconveniences. However, already at the 2nd degree of pathology fibrillation and premature beats can be strongly expressed.
Treatment of disease, doctors prescribe when the extraordinary number of heartbeats per day is exceeded 700 times. To treat this complication of degenerative disc disease will be the cardiologist.
causes of hypertension
Hypertension and degenerative disc disease of the cervical spine – associated conditions. They often exist together. As a consequence, all patients with degenerative-dystrophic diseases of the heart doctors always measure the blood pressure. For many it is higher than 140/80 mm Hg. Art.
Degenerative changes of the cervical spine frequently lead to hypertension. The relationship between these pathologies is not revealed. In practice, it is established that changes in thoracic and cervical spine lead to a slight increase in blood pressure.
When the pathology joins the pinching of the vertebral artery in the transverse processes of the vertebrae, occurs risovoe the disease. When hypertensive crisis figures of arterial pressure elevated to 220/110 mmHg. V. Against this background, quite likely a disruption of the heart.
The Relationship betweendegenerative processes of the spine and hypertension are not known, so doctors are not able to completely cure hypertension, but only prescribe drugs for the temporary reduction of pressure.
Hypertension in some cases occurs at the initial stage of cervical degenerative disc disease. When her blood pressure rises slightly. When there is compression of the vertebral artery, formed by a special form of pathology – cerebral-ischemic.
