Chondroz of thorax
Chondrosis of the chest often develops in people after fifty years. However, as practice shows, its first manifestations are found in the period from thirty-five to forty years.
Chest chondrosis is classified asa complex degenerative-dystrophic disease affecting the intervertebral discs. In this case, they are flattened, and they lose their elasticity. The disease is also accompanied by compression of the roots of nerve fibers, which is the cause of the pain. The most serious consequence of the development of chondrosis is the innervation and disruption of the internal organs.
Lack of timely and correct treatmentprovokes the probability of the formation of disc herniation, suggesting surgical intervention. Therefore, chest chondrosis should be treated at its early stages when the first symptoms are revealed.
In addition to the destruction of intervertebral discs, the development of the disease provokes disturbances in the functioning of the ligamentous and muscular apparatus.
Chest chondrosis caused by diseasesvessels, an incorrect metabolic process. However, the main factor in the onset of the disease is the violation of posture for many years. These factors provoke disturbances in tissue trophism, circulation and innervation in the area of the discs.
Chondrosis of the chest shows signs of damage to its organs (heart and lungs).
The disease is characterized by nonspecificsymptoms. As a rule, the patient feels discomfort in the heart area. The resulting pain can be given to the left arm or neck. With chondrosis, the pain may be weak or rather harsh. Painful sensations are also accompanied by inhalations or exhalations.
Osteochondrosis of the chest has complications inform of intercostal neuralgia. This condition is the result of pinching (squeezing) and irritation of the nerve roots caused by degenerative changes in the spine. In most cases, this condition is classified as a consequence of chondrosis. Attacks of neuralgia can last several hours or weeks. In a number of cases, they pass on their own without treatment. However, as a rule, subsequently there are relapses of a long duration accompanied by some additional syndromes (aggravation of lesions in neighboring vertebral departments).
Chest rupture of chest. Treatment
First of all, it is necessary to note the importance of correct diagnosis of the disease. In this case, it should be differentiated from an attack of angina or myocardial infarction.
The main therapeutic course should be aimed at normalization of the patient's metabolic process. In addition, measures are needed to equalize blood pressure and sugar content.
The patient is recommended a course of exercises aimed at enhancing the flexibility of the spine and improving the circulation of the chest area.
In case of exacerbations, the specialist mayprescribe the use of an anti-inflammatory ointment or an anesthetic. Massage is also recommended. However, in most cases, this effect will cause the patient pain. It should be noted that such appointments are carried out with an obligatory account of the patient's condition. Therapeutic measures are carried out very carefully, in order to avoid causing even greater harm to the patient.
Restore functionalityintervertebral discs are almost impossible with the use of regular tablets and ointments alone. In such cases, the most appropriate is the use of special tools.
