One of the most effective methods to restore the health of the back is considered the treatment of the spine according to the method dikulja. With the accelerating pace of life has rapidly increased the number of injuries and diseases of the spine. Today, such problems as scoliosis, osteochondrosis and hernia of the spine came in second place after colds. Therefore, the study of this unique method is becoming more pressing, and following it gives many people the opportunity to move normally, to work and lead an active life without back pain for many years.
A brief history of the emergence method
Surprisingly, one of the most effective methods of treatment of diseases of the spine was not developed by a doctor, and a circus gymnast. His name is Valentin Dikul. In 1962, performing a dangerous stunt, he slipped and fell into the arena from a height of 13 m. Miraculously survived, but received more than 10 fractures, including a spinal fracture. All the symptoms pointed to the fact that Dikul will forever remain disabled. But Valentin never put up with that and began the long and difficult struggle for the opportunity to move freely.
As a result of his perseverance, hard work and ingenuity, he created the famous system dikulja. And the first who managed to get to his feet, became himself its author. And he didn’t just overcome the pain symptoms and managed to stand, and returned in 1970 to the circus, as a power athlete, proving by their example that even after such severe injuries life without back pain is possible. Further, the author regularly improve technique.
Developed by Dikul system thousands of people have hope for a life without back pain even after the severe injuries and diseases of the spine.
What is the method dikulja
Dikul says that in the majority of cases, people become disabled from injuries or disease, but from their own indecision and inaction. The main condition in the system Dikul: despite the severity of the injury, you need to constantly burden to the muscles and ligaments of the body to keep them in good shape. Otherwise they will atrophy, leaving a person’s disability.
System Dikul is a set of special exercises aimed at the constant maintenance of the muscles and ligaments back in working condition. Valentin argues (and proves by his own example) that such exercises over time will allow the patient to stand up and start a life without back pain.
There are preventative exercises from the diseases of the back, exercises for drivers, gymnastics for office workers exercises with cervical osteochondrosis gymnastics in osteochondrosis of the lumbar etc. dikulya works effectively in the treatment of almost all diseases back and spine:
- severe injuries and fractures of the spine;
- cerebral palsy;
- degenerative disc disease;
- of herniated discs.
Only the treatment of the spine according to the method dikulja includes over 60 poses and exercises.
The basic rules of Wellness of the system
Gymnastics Dikul is based on several rules. First: they exercise do not give a positive effect for the muscles. For the success of the patient certainly need more perseverance, emotional stability and confidence in the final result. So the first thing should learn a person starts to engage in the system dikulya, to ensure a life without back pain – self-control, psychological stability and confidence in their abilities.
Second rule: muscle must do «want» to go back to work the tone, and gymnastic exercises are designed only to give them a boost for this. In other words, the lessons should be regular but need daily exhausting exercises, no. For example, it is enough to perform the exercises dikulya, hernia of the spine or degenerative disc disease 3 times a week to give impetus to the revitalization of the muscles of the back.
Third: the exercises must be performed in the same sequence in which they were carried out in the first session. To comply they must gently, slowly, rhythmically, stress and shortness of breath. Fast movement at best does nothing to help treatment, and often can and do harm health. If gymnastics Dikul runs correctly, then the person may at any time stay without any problems to breathe deeply.
Fourth: you need to learn to hear your body. For example, exercises with cervical osteochondrosis should be performed in 3 sets of 8 repetitions of each exercise. This does not mean that you need to continuously do the exercises, testing the muscles for strength.
By following the first approach, take a break for 2-3 min, then perform the second approach, make one more stop and complete the exercises in the third approach. If during the execution of an activity you feel pain, it is better to refuse from its implementation.
One of the basic tenets of the methodology Dikul: if a person experiences severe pain in the back if he showed symptoms of acute illness or any respiratory diseases – lessons should be halted until, while using other methods of treating pain and poor health will not be localized.
Exercise method dikulja in scoliosis
Scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spine. Doctors klassificeret it as a severe progressive disease with a high probability of pathological changes in the joints of the spine.

Special gymnastics in osteochondrosis
Osteochondrosis – a degenerative-dystrophic changes of the spine, affecting the intervertebral discs. Distinguish between lumbar, thoracic and cervical osteochondrosis. The symptoms of this insidious disease are numerous but to try to measure the development of the disease is not necessary, because they are well able to masquerade as symptoms of other diseases. For example, symptoms with cervical degenerative disc disease (headache, dizziness, pain in the shoulders) can also belong to at least half a dozen diseases.
As in the case with scoliosis, osteochondrosis exercises to do 3 sets of 8 times each, and between sets 2-3 minutes rest to recover the breath.
Described above exercise is only a small part of the rich Arsenal, developed by V. I. Dikul. He argues that the human body is programmed by nature according to the principle of self-healing mechanism. Therefore, we and only we decide to launch this self-repair mechanism, or to allow the body to slowly but steadily grow decrepit.
