Massage - one of the safest and most effective methods of treatment and prevention of osteoarthritis.
- It eliminates muscle spasm and restore blood circulation in the corresponding spine muscles,
- reduces pressure on the intervertebral discs, that helps them recover faster;
- It protects the spine from further destruction.
How it works?
Cartilaginous discs between the vertebrae need for flexibility and cushioning when loads on the spine. Passive lifestyle, scoliosis, flatfoot, excessive load on the spine increases the level of stress on wheels. As a result, they flatten over time, bones begin to press against each other and break down. In places, where the bone is destroyed, It begins the growth of osteophytes (bony spikes).
As a result, – spasms of the muscles of the corresponding department, pain from disadvantaged spinal nerves and disruption of the internal organs.
If low back pain combined with osteoporosis (is every third woman after 40 years old), spine fracture process is literally "in front". By reducing bone density osteochondrosis without appropriate treatment leads to serious problems: vertebral compression fractures, severe pain, rapid age-related changes (spinal deformity plus decrease metabolism).
Massage improves blood flow to the bone, as well as the muscles of the neck and head, restores lymph circulation, CSF, relieves pain and discomfort, restores mobility of the intervertebral joints. It improves blood circulation depending on the respective department of the spine (brain with cervical osteochondrosis, eg).
