Osteochondrosis, in particular, the cervical spine is an acute problem of modern society, where every second person spends most of his life at the computer and driving a car. Let’s figure out what it is, how to avoid this problem and how to get rid of the symptoms if it has already appeared.
Cervical osteochondrosis — This is a chronic degenerative disease in which the discs located between the vertebrae wear out and are subsequently replaced by bone tissue. In other words, a kind of pad between the vertebrae from relatively soft becomes hard. When hard tissue comes into contact with the same hard tissue, discomfort and pain appear, which greatly complicate life.
With proper prevention, this disease can be avoided, and in today’s material we will reveal to you a few secrets that will help prevent the development osteochondrosis.
The first, and perhaps the most effective, is daily exercise, physical warm-ups during the day and a healthy lifestyle. Get in the habit of pouring cold water in the morning or taking contrast showers. Take up swimming or yoga — it relieves the tension of all muscle groups very well, and also relaxes the spine. Visit a massage room — massage of the cervical-collar zone will relieve stress after a working day. Secondly, it is necessary to reduce the load on the spine as much as possible: learn how to stand, sit, lie down, walk, drive a car and everything that we do every day in full confidence that we are doing it right. For example, in the “standing” position, you need to periodically change the position of the body with the transfer of weight to one leg, to the other, if possible, lean on a support in order to reduce the load on the spine. You need to sit as much as possible leaning on the back of the chair and armchair, while the legs should firmly rest on the floor or stand, otherwise the entire load will fall on the spine. You should try to keep your back straight, both sitting and standing. If your body requires it, you can put a special pillow under your back while sitting. If you have a sedentary job, be sure to take breaks for walking. You need to sleep on the “correct” mattresses — with independent spring blocks and fairly rigid, excluding the deflection of the spine. For the prevention of cervical osteochondrosis, it is imperative to choose a good orthopedic pillow.
It is these pillows that the DanySleep brand presents to your attention.
