Television doctor Elena Malysheva showed how to quickly relieve back and neck pain with a special exercise. The doctor also named a seven-point algorithm for treating these painful manifestations.
The neurologist and chiropractor Dmitry Shubin helped the leading councilor in the program "Living Healthy" on Channel One. First of all, doctors recommended that patients do an MRI so that they could accurately diagnose. According to Dmitry Shubin, the cause of back and neck pain can actually be anything - from a tumor in the abdominal cavity to a cerebral hemorrhage.
The next step, Malysheva called a visit to a doctor, who, on the basis of an MRI, will diagnose and prescribe treatment. But there are ways to relieve pain that do not require referral to a specialist and can be used by patients on their own.
This is a special exercise to help relax the muscles in your back and neck, after which the pain subsides in a few minutes. To do this, you need to raise your hand to the level of your head, put it on the top of your head and, as if pulling your neck. At the same time, the neurologist recommended relaxing the facial muscles in order to achieve the maximum effect.
The methods of self-relieving pain include pepper plaster, as well as taking painkillers for no more than five days.
Earlier NEWS.ru reported that recently in Russia they began to use an alternative method of pain relief - radiofrequency denervation. Using an electric current, the doctor for a long time (up to two years) "turns off" the nerves that carry pain information from the affected areas to the cerebral cortex.
