 symptoms of osteoarthritis
 The symptoms of osteoarthritis may be very typical when it is literally impossible to make a mistake, but may be similar to other diseases. They must be distinguished from symptoms of spinal cord tumors, coronary heart disease (CHD), diseases of the stomach, pancreas Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know  Diabetes and pancreas - the things you need to know
   and liver.


Cervical osteochondrosis

What are the symptoms of degenerative disc disease are the most common? Of course, radicular. It is also the symptoms of exacerbation of degenerative disc disease. Radicular syndrome - a group of symptoms that appear when squeezing the spinal nerves. Depending on to which the spinal cord is pinched back, radicular develop different symptoms of degenerative disc disease. Also characteristic symptoms of tension in osteochondrosis - increased pain when active movements due to the tension of the nerve trunks.

   radicular syndrome is manifested by severe pain in the neck, in the cervical vertebrae in the interscapular region. Maybe join a headache and pain in the eye socket. When squeezing the nerve root of the third vertebra may occur pain in the ear and a violation of the sensitivity of the language. Pain in heart attacks and heart speak about infringement of the spine of the fourth vertebra. Violation of movement in the hand (it is difficult to raise my hand, something she do) - a sign of infringement of the spine of the fifth vertebra, severe pain in the neck, extending to the shoulder blade, arm and thumb - the sixth in the index and middle finger - the seventh, and the little finger - eighth.

Symptom relief is manifested in a sharp increase in pain not only in the pan and tilt of the head, but also when chewing and speaking.


Thoracic osteochondrosis

If the infringement of spinal nerve roots of the spine radicular syndrome manifests itself most often by the type of intercostal neuralgia with aching or sharp shooting pains along the intercostal spaces. Patients feel that the chest "squeezed hoop" breathing becomes shallow - because of the pain the patient is afraid of deep breathing, sneezing, coughing, avoid any movements. Provoking the emergence of such pain is most often a long stay in a fixed position forced.

Radicular syndrome may also manifest itself in the form of severe back pain. The symptoms of osteoarthritis of the back - aching, not too intense or sudden, sharp, limiting the mobility of the chest.

Infringement of vegetative fibers root causes that when breast osteochondrosis, pain in the heart Pain in the heart - always consult a doctor  Pain in the heart - always consult a doctor

Lumbosacral osteochondrosis

Radicular syndrome in the lumbosacral osteochondrosis is most characteristic manifestations.

The attack of osteoarthritis - the main symptoms: violent pain (lumbago) burning, dagger character that appears in the spine and the patient does not straighten up, if it is in a bent position. Very strong pain may last from a few minutes to several hours, extends deep into the tissue, it causes an increase in skin sensitivity or numbness in the lumbar region. The cause of lumbago is most often awkward movement.

Aching pain intensity at most colds occur, they usually last from several days to several weeks or even months. Such pains are usually one-sided, and give to the sacrum and leg.

Sometimes patients ask how symptoms of osteoarthritis of the coccyx? The fact that osteoarthritis of the coccyx does not happen, because the tailbone - a small fused bones in which there is no intervertebral discs. But the pain in the coccyx in osteochondrosis of the lumbosacral spine may be - a condition called coccygodynia. Coccygodynia can wear very stubborn, greatly reducing the quality of life of the patient.


Symptoms of advanced osteoarthritis

Widespread called osteochondrosis, arising from degenerative changes in several parts of the spine, and sometimes in all its departments. Depending on the degree of involvement in the disease process of a division, and manifest the main symptoms.

Common osteochondrosis Osteochondrosis - learn how to properly distribute the weight  Osteochondrosis - learn how to properly distribute the weight
   runs hard, often leads to the patient's disability, and even complete immobility.

Symptoms of osteoarthritis should be promptly identified and treated, the only way to stop the progression of the disease. The main treatment for degenerative disc disease is a therapeutic exercise.

The mechanism of action sirdalud associated with decreased release of nerve cells (neurons) neurotransmitter amino acids (e.g., glutamic acid), which stimulate the transmission of nerve excitation in the synapses of the central nervous system, in particular in the synapses located in the spinal cord. Synapse called the place of transition from one nerve cell to another, which is transmitted through the nervous excitement with special chemicals called neurotransmitters. Pulses of nervous excitement not reach the skeletal muscles and the muscles relax. Sirdalud has also some analgesic activity which is enhanced by the combined treatment with analgesics.
