The spine of a person, like his tendons with joints, begins to "wear out" after a while. However, this process can be significantly slowed down. Honored doctor of Russia, chiropractor Andrei Kabychkin told about this in an interview with radio Sputnik.
Most often, problems in this area begin at the age of 35. Such changes occur in connection with the disorders of metabolic processes that appear at this time, a decrease in blood supply, and the like.
“The" warranty period "of our tendons, cartilage, joints and spine is 35-45 years … This is the physiology of a person like this," the expert explained.
To increase the period of healthy "exploitation" of the spine, it is necessary to properly distribute the load on it during the day. Working while standing involves an increased static load of the musculoskeletal system, however, even when working while sitting, the spine may suffer from an incorrect position in the workplace.
In the absence of the opportunity to sit down completely comfortably, it is necessary to compensate for this by periodically changing the position. Short warm-up breaks with gymnastics are also helpful.
Previously, a neurologist indicated that motion sickness in transport in adults may be a sign of problems with the blood flow of the cervical spine. If motion sickness is a persistent phenomenon, an osteopath should be consulted.
