Experts who gathered at a round table in the AiF in Samara press center spoke about the risks of a disregard for the health of the spine.

"Is it the ancestors to blame"?

The reasons for the disruption of the musculoskeletal system can be very different. Sometimes genetic abnormalities or birth trauma are to blame. As the traumatologist-orthopedist of the REAVIZ clinic Dmitry Chernyshev noted, “it is useful to come to an orthopedic doctor's appointment even before childbirth. A specialist will be able to identify a woman's pelvic ring dysfunction and suggest what complications may arise after childbirth. Such a consultation could help avoid possible birth trauma. In addition, the orthopedist must examine the child after birth, and also after he has begun to walk, in order to exclude developmental defects."

However, as doctors say, congenital pathologies, as well as birth injuries, cause diseases of the musculoskeletal system only in 2-3% of cases. Basically, the cause of back pain or other unpleasant symptoms should be looked for in your own lifestyle.

“In most cases, people themselves become the cause of their ailments,” says Gennady Kuropatkin, head of the orthopedics department 1, Honored Doctor of Russia. - Overweight, smoking, alcohol abuse lead to joint pain. At the same time, patients are not ready to change their habits. They come to the appointment waiting for the "magic pill" and leave the "evil doctor" disappointed that he did not help them."

It is necessary to maintain the health of the musculoskeletal system from childhood. “It is very important that the baby, who has just started to walk, wears the right shoes - with a hard back, a special heel,” said Daria Kolesnikova, deputy manager of the Samara Prosthetic and Orthopedic Enterprise FSUE branch. “Orthopedic shoes have all these qualities: they fix the foot and help prevent the development of its defects”.

All troubles are from the nerves

By the way, the habit of being nervous also sometimes causes joint pain. The phenomenon is explained simply: in stress, the muscles contract and remain in this position for a long time, preventing sufficient blood supply. In addition, scientists have found that under the influence of stress in a person's blood, the content of cholesterol increases, the excess of which leads to the formation of blood clots and atherosclerotic plaques. The result is the same - because of the "clogged" vessels, the blood flow worsens, which means that the blood supply to the joints suffers. Therefore, modern people who are used to being nervous and worried 24 hours a day, any anti-stress procedures are useful: massage, walks in nature, yoga, etc. This was reported by Evgeny Fazilov, a neurologist at the Clinic for Spinal Diseases.

“Diseases of the musculoskeletal system are an interdisciplinary problem,” noted Valery Andreev, an orthopedic surgeon, director of the clinic of Dr. Andreev. - The cause can be genetic and stress factors, infectious diseases, as well as diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. However, in most cases, the disease provokes an unhealthy lifestyle. By the way, the chronic pain experienced by a patient with disorders of the musculoskeletal system also leads to impaired cognitive functions, to oppression of nerve endings, including those located in the frontal lobes of the brain. Therefore, in no case should you start the disease and consult a doctor at the first symptoms."

Sports are not always the salvation?

Feeling pain in the back, many Samara residents rush to "knock out a wedge with a wedge" and sign up for the gym or run to the pharmacy.However, both those and other measures can worsen the situation.

For advice, you need to go to a doctor, and not to a pharmacist or friend, - notes Gennady Kuropatkin. - And even more so not to engage in alternative methods of treatment. There was one tragic incident in my practice. I was approached by a girl with an early hip sarcoma. She could be helped, and I ordered an operation. However, her relatives were afraid of a difficult operation and turned to a healer, who guaranteed their recovery. Six months later, the "treatment" at the witch doctor of the girl was gone.

Doctors unanimously urge: do not self-medicate! As the head of the Volga sanatorium, Aleksey Sukhinin, noted, self-diagnostics using Internet forums and taking pills that “helped a neighbor” will not add to health.

By the way, intensive sports are not always useful and help to improve health. So, as doctors noted, it is far from always useful to send children to sports clubs at an early age. For example, according to the recommendations of doctors in the football and hockey sections, children of 10-12 years old can only engage in general physical training. And to start training only at the age of 13-17. Otherwise, too heavy a load can affect the functioning of the musculoskeletal system and lead, for example, to the destruction of the meniscus.

In medicine, there are devices that help improve well-being. As Elena Sizova, regional representative of JSC Elatomsky Instrument Plant, noted, “the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system should be approached in a comprehensive manner, including magnetotherapy. It is possible in the clinic, or it is possible, so that you do not run for kilometers on sore legs, at home with the help of Almaga-01. The effect of the treatment is noticeable after 2-3 procedures: pain decreases, swelling goes away, joint mobility is restored, and further development of the disease stops.
