The spine is a complex system formed by many parts (segments). The vertebrae are interspersed with nerve endings. Severe pain can occur even when compression of one of the intervertebral gap. The situation is exacerbated if you suffer from several segments.

If we are not talking about a single pinched, then the pathological changes relate to a broader portion of the spine and surrounding tissues. We are talking about polysegmental osteochondrosis, in which negative processes are stimulated. Polysegmental spinal degeneration can be diagnosed in one region of the spine (lumbar, thoracic or cervical), or simultaneously in different departments.

It enhances the degenerative processes in the tissues and causes severe pain, serious limitation of movement.

In the upper part of polysegmental spinal degeneration can lead to the impossibility of turning of the head, numbness of some parts of the neck. Not rare cases of high blood pressure. Traditional self-massage with cervical osteochondrosis in this case, not do. Requires a staged medical treatment. Neglected cases sometimes lead to disorders of speech, hearing and vision, and fainting.

Osteochondrosis – pain in pleasently in the Central – thoracic Department are very controversial. The pain is often similar to the heart or stomach. Not always the person perceives symptoms like low back pain – shoulder pain, numbness of the fingers do not occur near the area of the spine, and in the distance. For thoracic degenerative disc disease is characterized by numbness of the hands at rest. The improvement comes when changing posture and soft movement.

Polysegmental chondrosis of the thoracic and cervical areas does not occur too often. And here are the five vertebrae of the lumbar zone are very susceptible to this pathology. The pain does not subside neither in movement, nor in a state of complete rest. Coughing felt cramps in the pelvic area. The diagnosis “osteochondrosis of the polysegmental” should be taken very seriously.

With this diagnosis it is difficult to do without the use of drugs. At first, the doctors take the edge off the pain by holding the blockade or through non-hormonal means of pain relief. Then restore supply to the inflamed tissues with nutrients. With this task cope special biological stimulants. Then prescribed physiotherapy and therapeutic exercises. Deviation from the rules and recommendations in polysegmental osteochondrosis leads to relapses. The lack of treatment leads to irreversible growth of bone tissue and disability.
