Fitness with cervical osteochondrosis
Pilates osteochondrosis – the invention of the famous German doctor. His name is Joseph Pilates, which gave the name to the special complex of exercises for the spine. The technique of Joseph was developed to rehabilitate seriously injured patients who have experienced an accident or emergency with tragic consequences.
Today, the Pilates spine is used for other purposes: for the prevention of diseases of musculoskeletal system and to enhance the therapeutic effect of traditional methods. A significant positive effect but this gym gives for osteoarthritis of the knee joint, lumbar hernia, osteochondrosis, degeneration of tissue in the structure of the joint, scoliosis and other pathologies.

Pilates in osteochondrosis of the cervical part of changing the posture for the better, prevents the development of degenerative changes, congestive manifestations. A course of gymnastics that are performed over several weeks can regain lost flexibility and mobility, relieve debilitating pain. Therefore, the method has gained active dissemination, it became popular in patients and healthy people.
The principle impact
The basis of his method the author has put the need to increase mobility and strengthen the muscle corset in the absence of a loading dose of loading. Exercises designed for this purpose, significantly improved the health of patients when intervertebral hernia, arthritis of the knee joint, osteochondrosis of a loin. Practical research results have shown that Pilates can be pronounced positive dynamics in the early stages of the disease. During the lessons take place gradually noticeable changes being:
- the damaged area of the spine find the lost mobility;
- there is an increase and strengthening of the muscle corset.
Pilates with cervical osteochondrosis promotes stretching of the paravertebral muscles. Without experiencing any aggressive force effects, the muscle tissue gains elasticity. This prevents congestive manifestations in the structure of the joint and tendon ligaments. The mobility of the neck increases, disappears characteristic crunch of the vertebrae.
Muscle atrophy usually accompanies any injury to the joint or tendon. Sometimes this symptom appears when the hernia or osteoarthritis. This occurs most often with okulomotornyi muscles. Their function in pathological state is broken completely or partially. Anatomically the muscles represent a restraint of the corset, providing a constant correct position for healthy spine. A sick person muscular corset structure is weak. Gymnastics helps strengthen and increase the muscle corset.

Experienced trainer-instructor after the first test loads for the patient develops a valid intensity and duration of exercise. Selection of the complex depends on the General condition of the organism and the stage of the disease, if any.

Choosing complexes for the development of the knee joint and exercises, effective hernia and osteoarthritis, most do not attach importance to cervical pathologies. Meanwhile, this is a very dangerous area of the spine.
Cervical osteochondrosis is associated with injury of the 5th, 6th and 7th vertebrae, which provide the mobility of the neck. Herniated characteristic of the distribution on lateral and posterolateral areas. The focus of osteophytes (bone outgrowths protective) to the vertebral artery provoke local overlap duct. Form of cervical spine changes in extension due to the deformation of the cartilage plates. All this brings a person pain different in nature and intensity.
There are three type of pain.
Accompanying symptoms of cervical degenerative disc disease: a disorder of the vestibular apparatus, visual dysfunction, migraine, numbness of the scalp and soft tissues. Most of the symptoms associated with lesions of the arteries supplying the cerebral hemispheres. Visual disturbances accompanied by a sensation of sand in eyes, flying flies, darkening of the eyes for a short time, sparks. A change in the pattern of the fundus.
