My beloved aunty was having back pain and sciatica. The pain was so unbearable that she cried hysterically for help. Her daughter, Janice heard her cry and drove her to the nearest hospital. After the diagnosis was not a broken bone, but the doctor said it was a spondylosis, but special care needs to be taken because it would bring endless problems in her life even if she do not get good care. Spondylosis is a term that refers to degenerative arthritis of the joints between the centers of the spine and / or neural foraminae. In this state, the interfacetal joints are not involved. If severe, it can cause pressure on the nerve roots with subsequent sensory and / or motor disorders, such as pain, paresthesia, or weakness in the limbs.
Caused of spondylosis due to ergonomic lifestyle without care, for example was repetitive_strain_injury. While working at the computer, driving, could travel, etc. Treatment is usually conservative in nature, the most common treatments are physiotherapy, lifestyle changes and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) Alternative therapies, such as osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM), massage, trigger point therapy, chiropractic , osteopathic care. and acupuncture can be used to control pain and maintain muscle function in some people. Surgery is sometimes performed. Many of the treatments for cervical spondylosis are not subject to rigorous, controlled trials. Surgery is advocated for cervical radiculopathy in patients with intractable pain, progressive symptoms, or weakness does not improve with conservative therapy.
Many different surgical procedures have been developed to reduce the signs and symptoms associated with spondylosis ease. The spine can be approached by the surgeon from the front, side or back. At last, my aunty tried back brace and has a significant result for her back pain. The back brace have six sizes in one feature, that mean you can change the size adjusted to your body size. Really a good one to help for spondylosis symptoms.
The researchers conducted a study with 5000 people on the incidence of heart disease. The analysis was performed by observing the effects of air pollution on the blood pressure between 2000 and 2003.
“Air pollution is not only a trigger for heart attacks and strokes, but also influence the occurrence of the disease process,” said Dr. Barbara Hoffmann, the lead researcher.
High blood pressure is a risk factor ateroklerosis or hardening of the blood vessels that lead to heart disease and stroke. From previous studies have found that increased air pollution, blood pressure is increased, but long-term effect is unknown.
