Different forms of neck pain

Different neck problems

Statistics between 15% and 25% of the adult population would suffer from cervical pain. It is enough to detail the course of a day to realize indeed that many situations can lead to the creation of tensions in the neck: bad position in front of the computer or at the wheel, nape poorly positioned during the reading of a neck, A newspaper or a novel, a pillow that does not perfectly match the cervical curvature …

Different neck problems:

Some details: the neck is formed of seven vertebrae positioned one on top of the other. These constitute the cervical spine. The first two vertebrae, called atlas and axis, have as their main function the support of the head. Multiple ligaments connect these two vertebrae and the assembly allows the neck to perform rotations, extensions or even flexions. However, when the neck is no longer able to perform these movements in a fluid manner, cervicalgia is observed. It takes many forms, in particular the spontaneous pain that is felt without any obvious cause, and which is the manifestation of mechanical joint involvement.

In many discussions of neck pain, it is common to refer to the inflammatory pains that are manifested, most often by the stiffness of the rachis. If stiffness involves only one vertebral stage, medical diagnosis can lead to rheumatism.

It is possible to suffer from ganglion pain in the neck, a sign of the presence of an infection. A swollen ganglion in the neck may be a sign of a mild or more serious infection and should be the subject of a medical consultation.

Cervico brachial neuralgia

Cervico brachial neuralgia:

Cervico-brachial neuralgia is an inflammation of the nerves of the neck and arms. This is why it is sometimes called “sciatica of the neck” or “sciatica of the arm”. These pains can be very intense and disabling. They are due to compression or irritation of the root of a cervical nerve, as is the case with sciatica or cruralgia.

Symptoms:

The nerve is irritated at the level of the nerve root of a cervical vertebra (usually the 6th, 7th and 8th). As with other neuralgias, the pain is throbbing and is accompanied by sensations of tingling, numbness or electrical current. Tingling of the arm towards the thumb (or towards the other fingers of the hand) may be a sign of brachial neuralgia. It is by identifying the areas affected by tingling that one can determine the affected vertebra.

Areas particularly affected by pain are the shoulders and arms. These pains can radiate into the muscles of the trapezium at the level of the shoulder blades. Beyond these symptoms, cervico-brachial neuralgia can even lead to headaches, ringing in the ears or even vertigo. It is important to note that in general pain is not related to movement. It persists almost permanently, whether you are in motion or not.

Definition and cause of gout

Definition and cause of gout:

Gout is an articular inflammation triggered by an accumulation of uric acid crystals in the joint.

The gout is thus caused by an excess of uric acid in the blood, which the systems of evacuation of the body no longer succeed in eliminating.

However, too high a level of uric acid is not sufficient to explain gout. Indeed, it is estimated that 5 to 10% of the adult population would be hyperuricemic. (Increases the level of uric acid). Yet only about 2.5% of the adult population would suffer from gout.

Two factors add to the hyperuricemia to create gout:

Blood flow too low in the joint

Acidosis decreases the oxygen concentration in the blood and the body’s ability to evacuate metabolic waste

In 85% of cases, gout is a male disease whose onset usually begins around the age of 33 years.

The attacks of acute gout is extremely painful. In the early stages of the disease, these seizures are relatively spaced, but they are rapidly becoming more frequent.

Arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis and arthritis:

Arthritis is an inflammatory rheumatism that affects the synovial membrane of the joint. The chronic inflammation of the synovial membrane causes the degradation of the articular cartilage and a loss of mobility, even a deformation of the joint.

Cartilage is a fibrous tissue of proteins that serves as a cushion between the bones of the joint and reduces friction during movement. If only one joint is reached, one speaks of monoarthritis; When two, three or four joints are affected, oligoarthritis; Beyond, of polyarthritis.

Definition of tendinitis

Definition of tendinitis:

Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon that results from trauma or injury. Tendonosis is called chronic tendinitis linked to progressive degeneration of the tendon. Nevertheless the term tendinitis tends to be used for both situations.

Tendonitis of the elbow wrist of the ankle (Achilles tendon) and knee.

Sick ligaments take a long time to recover. The reason is the low vascularity of their fibers, not enough blood flows through the tendons. The tendons depend on capillary systems with the synovial fluid for their feeding and the evacuation of their metabolic waste. This circulation is therefore sensitive.

Stress and Insomnia

Insomnia and stress:

Stress and the first cause of relaxation and relaxation are probably the biggest enemies of normal sleep.
Stress and tension are likely to create all types of insomnia: difficulty falling asleep, sleeping too light with several awakenings at night, with a lot of difficulty falling asleep. Insomnia can be acute and transient when the person is facing a mild, or chronic stressful situation when people are continuously in a state of stress and nervousness.
Our stress has several components: tensions in our nervous system, muscular contractions, superficial respiration and often thoughts that perpetuate or reinforce the state of stress.

Back Pain

Muscle backache:

Muscle back pain is often triggered by a false movement or physical effort putting the back muscles to the test. Nevertheless, mechanical stress is usually only the trigger and not the cause of muscle back pain.
Back muscle pain is often caused by severe tensions and contractures in the muscles and ligaments of the back for many years. The back is the area of the body that accumulates the most effort.
Back muscles and ligaments require good blood flow to maintain flexibility and regenerative capacity. Blood carries oxygen and essential nutrients to muscle and ligament cells. However, tensions in the back slow down the blood flow in the contracted muscles and thus prevent them from being properly fed with oxygen.
On the other hand, significant tensions and contractions create muscle imbalances that disrupt the natural movements of the back and muscles, ligaments.

Cervicalgia

Two types of cervicalgia:

The origins of cervical pain and cervicalgia or torticollis are numerous. In many cases, these pains can be attributed to the muscles and ligaments that surround the cervical vertebrae. They are contracted in different points and pain often develops during stress periods.
Another cause of cervicalgia is the degeneration of one or more cervical vertebrae or their joints “intervertebral discs”. The most common are disc herniation and degenerative disc disease.

Cervicalgia is a generic term used to refer to pain in the upper back or neck and neck, that is, the cervical vertebrae into the shoulders. The term torticollis is also used, especially when the pain is of muscular origin.

Lower Back Pain

Two types of low back pain

In most cases, these pains can be attributed to the muscles and ligaments that surround the lumbar vertebrae. The pain then triggers often following an intense physical effort that has wrinkled or forced a muscle. The origins of the lumbar or lumbar pain are very numerous.

In cases of chronic low back pain, the cause is often different. These other causes of low back pain are mainly spinal disc degeneration, disc herniation, spinal canal stenosis, sacroiliac joint dysfunction and lumbar osteoarthritis (degenerative disc disease). Lumbago and lumbago are Generic terms used to describe a back pain that manifests in the lumbar region, ie in the lower back.

Cruralgie – definition of Cruralgie

Cruralgie definition:

The pain manifests itself gradually, the inflammation calming normally after a few days. If you do nothing to relieve the nerve, inflammation becomes more and more frequent until becoming permanent and disabling.
Several forms of lumbar problems are likely to be the cause of a cruralgia.

In most cases the cause is a disc herniation, but cruralgia can also be triggered by disc disease or disc degeneration and by the formation of osteophytes or “parrot beaks” on the vertebrae (osteoarthritis). Cruralgia can also occur in case of accidents or trauma that affect this nerve.

Crural neuralgia is an inflammation of the crural nerve producing severe pain along one of the two crural nerves at the front of each leg. The pain is felt mainly in the buttock and thigh on the same side. Sometimes, in case of severe irritation of the nerve, the pain can extend to the foot.

Scoliosis: Definition

Definition scoliosis:

For the problem of scoliosis it is a lateral deformation of the column. There are two types of scoliosis: idiopathic scoliosis and degenerative scoliosis.
Idiopathic scoliosis occurs in young people aged 10 to 17 years without any known cause. It seems that a genetic factor is involved.
Degenerative scoliosis occurs in adults after sixty years. Degenerative scoliosis is due to a deterioration of the vertebral facets due to chronic inflammation (osteoarthritis), which weakens the maintenance of the column and causes it to bend at a rate of 1 ° to 2 ° per year.

Definition of herniated disc

Hernie discale definition:

The pain comes from inflammation caused by pressure exerted on certain nerves near the hernia, often the sciatic nerve.
Disc herniation usually forms on the vertebral discs of the lumbar section. The disc herniation L5 and S1 are the most frequent.

The hernia is the formation of an opening at the level of the envelope of the disk, leaving part of the core of gelatinous consistency of the latter towards the outside of the cavity.

Fibromyalgia: definition

Fibromyalgia definition:

When there is no diagnosis of another illness that may explain these symptoms, it often leads to the diagnosis of fibromyalgia.
The standard practice for most doctors is to prescribe medications to alleviate the symptoms. Drugs such as anti-inflammatories, antidepressants, muscle relaxants, analgesics, sleeping pills, which are often combined. These drugs are not only incapable of curing the causes of fibromyalgia but they have negative side effects that can make the situation worse over time.

Fibromyalgia is usually diagnosed when a person suffers from chronic pain for a period of more than three months, when the person has at least eleven pain points on the eighteen trigger points, and that person has associated symptoms such as Severe fatigue, depression, sleep problems, weight gain, impaired memory and concentration, tingling or weakness in the muscles, and for women with menstrual problems or menopause.

Dorsal and Lumbar Osteoarthritis

Dorsal and lumbar osteoarthritis:

These are the fourth and fifth vertebrae which are most often affected.
Osteoarthritis of the back reduces its mobility and leads to the formation of osteophytes also called parrot beaks which are bone formations that deform the vertebrae.

Dorsal and lumbar osteoarthritis is the progressive deterioration of cartilages and vertebral discs following chronic inflammation of the facets or discs, combined with mechanical stresses.

Disc Clamping

Disc Clamping:

The disk most often subject to pinching is the disk located between the vertebrae 15 and s1 (pinching 15 s1). The pinch may however be at the cervical, dorsal or lumbar level and may involve several discs.

When the entire disk is thinned, it is called global pinch. When a part of the disc is thinned, it is called a local pinch.

Pinching or discoloring is the decrease in the height of an intervertebral disc. It is usually one of the manifestations of degenerative disc disease.

Sciatica, our advice

Sciatica, advice:

Treating sciatica effectively requires first of all to effectively relieve the pain and soothe the nerve. Anti-inflammatory or anti-contraction drugs are not recommended because they are very harmful to the digestive system and the kidneys (among others) and because there is an equally effective natural alternative which is the release in the nervous system of a Dose of endorphins which have the same anti-pain properties as morphine.

Sciatic neuralgia is an inflammation of the sciatic nerve producing sharp pain along one of the two sciatic nerves at the back of each leg. The pain is felt mainly in the buttock and thigh on the same side. Sometimes, in case of severe irritation of the nerve, the pain can extend to the foot. Sciatic nerve pain is often intermittent. The inflammation subsides spontaneously after a few days. Nevertheless, if nothing is done to relieve the nerve, inflammation becomes more and more frequent until sometimes becoming permanent and disabling.

How to use our Device the Vertèbre.

How to use our Camera le Vertèbro:

Check frequently with a good size bubble level, the newly purchased new table that may have a structural defect. Soils are rarely of any level. The level bubble should be perfectly centered in the small bars. The massed should be relaxed, the head and neck perfectly aligned, ie not turned, not even a little bit, arm along the body, face imperatively in an inverse nape (the forehead on the transverse part) Avoid moving and talking for the duration of treatment.

Any other arrangement causing tension or discomfort will invalidate the massage. The massager should be very close, standing uncurved, shoulders perpendicular to the table or the floor mat, check the horizontality (table for example) only the two green LEDs must be lit. Place the Vertebro centered 10 cm below the bottom of the column (inverter at a minimum), keep the handle parallel to the back and in line with the column.

Start: lower to the back, firmly holding the device while keeping the 2 green LEDs on, indicating the horizontality of the Vertebro. (Always on the muscular part and not on the bones) During the massage if the orange leds Or red light up, press lightly

By 3 times on the side of the orange led so as to re-establish the 2 green LEDs, for the red led which indicates a greater displacement, the customer will have to return minimum 6 times on a day every other day. Go up the column, from bottom to top, at a speed of one millimeter per second.

Accelerometer, (level-meter), of our Device the Vertèbro.
