Anastasia Suraev, which 100500 back problems, went to the reception to a chiropractor to see if he can relieve back pains, and wrinkles.
My back hurts already 10 years, almost my entire adult life. I have a high pain threshold so when I say “sick”, I mean exactly that. Not “something somewhere pulls”, “sore” or “somehow uncomfortable”. In addition to the back, spine I (and everyone else, but I’m currently) can hurt anything: arm, leg, side, even my right eye can hardly see this.
Will not here give a transcript of the MRI, but the problems I have in each section of the spine. It’s probably called something like running low back pain, but since the diagnosis “osteochondrosis” is not a disease, and evasion of Russian doctors, and to call it so I will not.
What I did before? Scanned everything possible and impossible. The pill, went to massages (become worse). Saw the first available to doctors for the insurance, and tested that have helped my friends. Usually it happened like this: starts to hurt more than usual — a couple of months go to hospitals — boring. In three years the next round. During this time I found only one working tablet, which, of course, not cure, but relief.
Why didn’t I go to a chiropractor before? Because I’m for traditional medicine. I think one wonderful chiropractic have 1000 charlatans who at best will do nothing, and at worst something will break.
About Sergey Viktorovich Great (Yes, Great is the name) I heard when we went to the clinic Gen 87 to find out what procedures to do in 30 years. I introduced him as a doctor who can tell you how the spine influences the condition of a person. I read that the first Great education – anesthesiology and resuscitation. Manual therapy is the 17 years. Thought this doctor I won’t break anything.
The first thing that surprised me at the reception: in the first minute of conversation Sergey Viktorovich accurately called a couple of my problems. During the inspection — all the other problems. Despite the fact that my MRI he wasn’t looking. (But I know what is written there:))
“The bone structure of the body depends on the head position. If it is wrong, the spine is forced to adapt to these changes. In a healthy person, the center of gravity falls on the sacrum and pelvic bones. Minor deviations in the position of the head (1-2 mm) provoke changes below and can reach 1-2 cm in the lumbar. To compensate for this, the body has to adapt, the muscles are forced to hold the vertebrae. There may be pain or General fatigue”.
I probably is the case — for some strange reason, has shifted the cervical vertebrae. The offset went on the spine, pelvis bent, the result is one leg shorter than the other 2 cm.
“From the spine and muscles have many receptors that control the work of other bodies. If the muscles compress nerve roots exiting the intervertebral holes, you have three choices:
- The nerves that are responsible for sensitivity, are keener to respond to stimuli
- A failure occurs in the working of the nerves responsible for movement
- A failure occurs in the work of nerve fibers which control organs and vessels
The consequences can be unexpected and diverse.”
“Unexpected and varied consequences” — it’s about me. Sometimes I have a very tunic shoulder. Saying “very”, I mean that at this point I can only slide on the floor where I stand, and wait, and when to let go. This happens because the neck muscles compress the nerves.
“When disturbed motor function is one of the vertebrae, its take on the next. Each vertebra is responsible for a particular part of the body. Based on this, we can understand what the problems are or will be in the future. Migraines can be related to changes in the 1-2 or 6-7 vertebrae, painful periods — 3-4, shortness of breath and disruptions of the heart in the thoracic spine”.
This is a surprise. About shortness of breath and migraines I knew, but never thought that pain during menstruation it can also affect.
My forehead wrinkles can also be associated with the spine with occipital tension-Sheikha Lubna muscles.
How is the procedure. First, it lasts less than five minutes. I lie down, inhale and on the exhale doctor something clicks. Unpleasant, but not hurt like hell. More sensitive only in the coccyx. Although scary, it seems like something will break:)
It looks much more intimidating than it actually is. After the procedure I carried out to our photographer Christine. I thought as well that I did the first . I would certainly not run away from the office, but would lie on floor with less enthusiasm.
Did I? I’ll be very careful, because after the procedure it has been two months, and global conclusions to do early. But I have no sore back. At all. I feel, perhaps, like the blind man who suddenly saw the light. Because I’ve already forgotten how it is when it hurts.
As I have worked for: 30 minutes at the table, then it becomes hard for 30 minutes to change to sofa, then back at the table. And then I knock on the keyboard where I want: I want so sit down, want that, and I don’t have to constantly change position.
I was able to get fingers to the floor. I couldn’t do not ever, even in school.
And forehead! Wrinkles I, of course, not smoothed, but left in spasm. That is not Botox — I can raise the eyebrows, but not punish them constantly and uncontrollably.
Along the way, I asked Sergey Viktorovich, how the spine can affect the appearance:
To provoke wrinkles and ptosis. “Muscles of facial muscles technique is closely associated with the muscles of the neck. When they are tense, facial expressions changing, and not necessarily in the lower part of the face. It may be reflected, for example, in the area around the eyes or provoke ptosis”.
“The same with the occipital-frontal muscle. If she is tense, wrinkles appear on the forehead.”
Affect the skin condition. “Adjustment of the spine improves metabolic processes, respectively, changing the state of the nervous fibres and quality leather”.
Impact on weight. “The work of the organs depends on the coherence of the pulses of the spine. The adjustment normalizes metabolic processes. For example, a person eats less food and loses weight considerably. This treatment is carried out in tandem with the endocrinologist”.
I still don’t want to say that chiropractic is a panacea and can replace Botox, MRI and everything else. But in my case, as it turned out, it works. Watch how long will the effect, and I go to the doctor for consultation in September.
We thank the innovation Clinic cosmetology Gen 87 and chiropractor Sergey Viktorovich Great for the help in material preparation.
