Many people are familiar with back pain. Ailments such as lumbago, sciatica are quite common causes of disability. These signs should be taken seriously.
It is possible that a painful syndrome in the lumbar region may also be a consequence of congenital anomalies of the ligamentous apparatus of the spine, tumors, intoxication, chronic or acute infection.
It should be noted that the reaction to pain is individual and is associated with age and mental factors.
In some patients, low back pain is associated with degenerative changes in the spine. The common name for this ailment is osteochondrosis. This is a complex of changes in the ligaments and bones of the spine, which is caused by the degeneration of the intervertebral discs.
Patients who suffer from lumbar osteochondrosis experience very severe pain. The reason for this is not only mechanical irritation of the nerve roots: when the septa and membranes of the intervertebral disc rupture, substances are naturally released that irritate pain receptors.
One of the main causes of spinal osteochondrosis is a violation of salt and fat metabolism.
External factors that affect the exacerbation and development of lumbar osteochondrosis include: chronic infections, mechanical injuries, prolonged and significant muscle tension, drafts, sudden temperature fluctuations, high humidity.
At the first symptoms of pain in the lumbar spine, you should immediately seek the advice of a qualified specialist. An experienced doctor, having examined the general condition of the patient, will make a full-time diagnosis and prescribe the necessary course of treatment. Experts do not recommend self-medication for lower back pain. Thus, you can further exacerbate the disease.
As a prophylaxis for seizures, many doctors recommend wearing external supporting devices - a reclinator, posture corrector, bandage, corset, etc. They give the figure a slenderness, improve lymphatic and venous outflow, and prevent spinal deformity.
Often, in order to relieve pain, patients have to take pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs. For very severe pain in the lumbar spine, experts prescribe drugs in the form of intramuscular injections. As a rule, analgesics are prescribed ("Spazgan", "Sedalgin", "Baralgin", "Analgin"). Also in this case, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs ("Voltaren", "Diclofenac", "Ibuprofen") are excellent.
It is worth noting that any anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs only relieve pain without eliminating the cause of the disease. For a complete cure, a doctor's help is needed.
