Hello, friends. A lot of us are suffering from cervical osteochondrosis. But, few people know that this is one of the main causes of heart failure. Tonight, we’ll find out how it happens and what it’s like.
The brain controls the heart.
People diagnosed with cervical osteochondrosis are more likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease and heart disease.
The thing is, we have a vascular centre in our brains responsible for normal saturation with the blood of the heart. He’s sending him some signals, adjusting his blood pressure.
In cervical osteochondrosis, the arteries passing through the displaced vertebrae are compressed. The brain begins to experience oxygen deprivation and has to signal to the heart to increase blood pressure to prevent disturbances in its work.
As a result, our heart muscle wears out quickly. We feel the constant weight in the chest. It feels like we’re suffocating.
Unfortunately, osteochondrosis is not medically treated. We can’t take a couple of pills and forget about it. Therefore, your doctor must prescribe a special exercise course for you. Kind of like gymnastics for the neck. This will improve the mobility of the cervical spine and relieve spasms caused by clenched neck muscles.
As a rule, it is a systematic and smooth lowering of the head, until the chin touches the chest. Also, slow head turns to the sides with a delay in the final point. These manipulations will allow you to stretch your neck muscles that have hardened.
But not, in any case, you can’t allow the head to move around in circles. You risk getting pinched and having a stroke. The same goes for throwing your head back.
Afterwards, there are exercises on gradual tension and relaxation of the neck, with the help of hands. Everything happens smoothly and slowly. Upon completion, a special massage with warming ointment is often prescribed to improve blood circulation.
We intentionally do not describe the exact method of performance, as an improper performance of exercises can cause irreparable harm to your body.
Therefore, a doctor’s consultation is necessary. There are also some serious contraindications.
