Rather, the breach of it. Dizziness, frequent headaches or syncope can be a signal that the displacement of broken vertebrae cerebral circulation. Acute pain in the neck and lower back - a possible symptom of a pinched nerve. Constant fatigue, back pain, most likely, muscle spasms, the cause of which - changes of the spine.

With age, everyone destructive changes occur in the intervertebral discs. This leads to irritation of nearby nerves and inflammation. The next step - change of circulation and as a consequence of muscle tension and deprivation usually easy mobility because of spasms in some areas of the back. That is exactly where and is affected spine.
Feature of manual therapy that is non-pharmacological treatment. After listening to your complaints and a detailed description of the pain, as well as looking at the x-rays, the therapist assesses the hands only of the disease and then conducting a series of hand again impacts on the back and spine area. The good news is that the first effect will ease immediately. The bad - here easily deceived. To get the maximum effect and to get rid of the disease, it is necessary more than two or five visits to the doctor. By the way, a qualified specialist will never be you assign another session the next day. Three to five days, your muscles need to fix his new position, which will give them the therapist during manipulation. Only then can we begin to continue treatment.
Of course, to stop the process of deterioration is impossible. But depends on us when the spine suddenly declare itself.
Problems with the vertebrae start small and aggravated daily. Remember, how you sit back in front of a computer monitor in the office or dinner in the restaurant (probably after this phrase many thought and straighten your back). If today is your spine is not an effect, not screaming with pain and spasms in the back, then either you have a great inheritance, or you clever and live an active and sporty. In other cases, when our gipermalopodvizhnoy life, absolutely healthy spine is just a matter of time.

Stomach pain - gastritis

Life in the big city - it's always stressful.
Improper diet, problems at work, lack of sleep - all this disrupts the body and almost inevitably leads to various diseases (they are more often called "diseases of civilization"). And today we will tell you about one of the most common "diseases of civilization" - chronic gastritis.
It so happened that the abdominal pain, heartburn and belching small few people care about - think, self-will, do not go to the doctor because of some heartburn. But these unpleasant feelings and are symptoms of chronic gastritis. Except that chronic gastritis is not so harmless as it seems. Firstly, it can cause stomach ulcers. Second, chronic gastritis is often accompanied by weakness and fatigue, which does not make life more enjoyable. Third, chronic gastritis can lead to cancer of the stomach (and they get sick every year about one million people worldwide)
Meanwhile, about 30 years ago, two Australian scientists have found that stress and unhealthy diet - not only or even the main cause of chronic gastritis. It turned out that in most cases of chronic gastritis caused by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori. For several reasons, the body is just not able to cope with these bacteria, and therefore the disease becomes chronic. Over time, chronic gastritis if untreated, the disease progresses, first formed by erosion (damaged areas of mucous membrane) and then ulcers.
Fortunately, the fight against chronic gastritis is even possible, and modern medicine have to do a whole arsenal of tools. But the disease can be overcome only by destroying its cause - Helicobacter pylori.
What have the means to deal with gastritis? Firstly, antacids. Typically, such substances are converted into the acid water, and because there are quite a short time. Besides, in most cases they only eliminate the symptoms and do not act on the cause. Secondly, proton pump blockers. Drugs in this group of cells, inhibit the production of gastric hydrochloric acid, and therefore longer operating. Unfortunately, these drugs also do not affect the cause of the disease. Moreover, in some cases, long-term use of drugs alone kislotosnizhayuschih may even aggravate the situation
