Exercises for cervical osteochondrosis, which affects 90% of the working population

Osteochondrosis (from other Greek bone and cartilage) is a complex of dystrophic disorders in the articular cartilage. It can develop in almost any joint, but most often the intervertebral discs are affected. Depending on the localization, cervical, thoracic and lumbar osteochondrosis is distinguished. It should be noted that in the English-language medical literature, the term osteochondrosis means a completely different group of orthopedic diseases, which in Russian are called osteochondropathies.

Few people believe in the fact that cervical osteochondrosis can be much more dangerous than cancer. But nevertheless it is so!

Numerous patients of the rehabilitation therapist Alexander Shishonin argue that it is better to twist the neck properly than to suffer from hypertension all my life and be afraid of the sudden onset of a heart attack or stroke (as a result of clamps .

Shishonin is convinced that it is cervical osteochondrosis that becomes the root cause of hypertension, and only in 5% of cases the disease is a consequence of adrenal tumors, thyroid gland and kidney pathology.

The fact is that with age, the cervical vertebrae tend to move and pinch the vessels that feed the brain.

As a result of this, the latter receives extremely little oxygen and instructs the heart to pump blood with greater frequency.

If a person has a weak heart, the brain takes control of the vessels and capillaries, ordering them to contract what urine is.

If the capillaries are weakened, the brain loads the kidneys, forbidding them to drain water from the body. All in order to maintain pressure within the system.

As a result of such a restructuring, the composition of the blood changes and the amount of sugar increases, because the brain needs enhanced nutrition!

And when the reserves run out, a stroke occurs. But such consequences can be avoided if the cervical vertebrae clamp arteries in time.

Strangely enough, a nervous shock is often the cause of the vascular clamp. There is a spasm of the muscles of the cervical and thoracic.

Because of this, the blood circulation and the work of the intervertebral discs are disrupted - the vertebrae become unstable and compress blood vessels.

Often the main culprit of all troubles is the first vertebra - Atlas. It is he who accounts for the maximum load.

To help his patients get rid of osteochondrosis, Dr. Shishonin developed a special exercise technique called “Cervical-Cerebral Therapy”.

If necessary, it should be supplemented with a special diet or training with the help of rehabilitation devices.

Exercises can be performed at home, but if there is no significant relief in a month, you should consult a doctor for help.

Perhaps, in your case, the vertebra or vessel is located in an atypical way.

The root cause of osteochondrosis is upright posture.

In the process of growing up in humans, the vascular bed in the intervertebral discs is physiologically reduced, so their nutrition occurs diffusely. This complicates the restoration of intervertebral discs after injuries and loads. Inadequate diet aggravates osteochondrotic processes. Cartilage loses its elasticity and strength, its shape and consistency change.

The irrational and asymmetric work of the muscles of the spine adversely affects the disks, namely: with incorrect habitual postures, with insufficient warm-up, when carrying bags on the shoulder, when using soft pillows and mattresses. Flat-footedness can act as a stimulator of pathological processes. If the foot does not provide adequate cushioning of the interactions with the support, the latter has to be done with the spinal column. Obesity also contributes to osteochondrosis of the spine. Excess fatty tissue, deposited in different places, complicates the maintenance of balance and overloads the intervertebral joints.


Complications of osteochondrosis include diseases such as: protrusion, disc herniation (intervertebral hernia, spinal hernia), kyphosis, radiculitis. Stenosis.


The causes of changes in the intervertebral discs are not fully understood. People begin to feel manifestations of osteochondrosis most often after 35 years. The development and exacerbation of this ailment is facilitated by various back injuries, static and dynamic overloads, as well as vibration. The older a person, the more manifestations he has. But in recent years, more and more people aged 18 to 30 have been complaining of back pain. The reasons for the early manifestation of the disease are many: poor physical fitness, poor posture and curvature of the spine, flat feet and being overweight.


Patients suffering from osteochondrosis complain of constant aching back pain, which is often joined by numbness and a feeling of aching in the limbs. In the absence of adequate treatment, weight loss and atrophy of the extremities occur.


A preliminary diagnosis is made during the initial examination of the patient. The examination is usually carried out by a neurologist in connection with the patient's complaints about local changes that may manifest as pain, deformation or limitation of mobility. The spine is examined in the position of the patient standing, sitting and lying, both at rest and in motion. The level of damage to the spine is determined by counting the number of vertebrae from certain anatomical landmarks or according to a special scheme. When examining the back, they pay attention to posture, structural features of the trunk, mark the line of the spinous processes (median groove of the back), the lower corners of the shoulder blades, the crests of the ilium, the lateral contours of the waist and neck, the position of the shoulders, the deviation of the intergluteal groove from the vertical, reveal protrusion of the spinous pay attention to the relief of the muscles located next to the spine. Palpation of the spine allows you to supplement the examination data (the presence or absence of deformation), to determine the localization, degree and nature of pain. When feeling, note also the tension of the muscles located near the spine, because most injuries and diseases of the spine are accompanied by an increase in muscle tone. Spinal flexion is used to determine the range of motion in various parts of the spine. The main role in the study of the spine is assigned to radiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, with which the level of damage is determined, the diagnosis is specified and specified, and hidden pathologies are revealed. Diagnostic data allow the attending physician to determine treatment tactics and choose the most effective treatment methods.
