Don't mess around with back pain while on vacation!
💁What kind of transport to use to get to your destination❓
🚆🚂 Train. During the trip you can sleep, sit, walk around the carriage, and when the train stops you can get off on the platform. Remember, the more often you change your body position, the better!
🚌Bus or your own 🚗 car (especially as a driver) - it is not recommended to travel long distances. In most cases, the cause of back pain is osteochondrosis and spondyloarthritis. With these diseases prolonged monotonous static load is harmful. When using your own car, try to plan your route so that you have stops and an opportunity to stretch your body.
🛬 Take an airplane flight if you are attracted to more distant resting places. If possible, change your body position, walk down the aisle of the plane or stand near your seat. The more changes the better!
🏊 Swim! Swimming relaxes your back muscles, reduces pain and strengthens your muscles, which gives your spine better support. Note that you should not jump into the water from a footbridge, cliff, tower or bridge, which often results in micro-trauma to the spine.
🧗 Hiking. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy nature away from everyone, what could be better? But don't forget about your health! Heavy backpacks are not recommended. Try to distribute the weight of the things you take with you. Shoes should be suitable - low, wide heels and flexible, soft soles to reduce impact and prevent the transfer of vibrations to your spine.
💁Exercise every day, even on vacation! Health in motion!
❓ Do your joints hurt when the weather changes?
Are old traumas showing up after prolonged exertion?
❗ It's important to know - it's not the weather or joint sensitivity - it's the symptoms that indicate developing joint osteoarthritis.
👉The disease is chronic - and for a long time can only manifest itself with aching, discomfort, morning stiffness, crunching in the joints. However, as long as you do not pay special attention to these symptoms - the disease progresses. Articular cartilage erodes, there is swelling and muscle spasm around the painful joint, blood circulation is disrupted, ligaments are also subjected to organic changes - all this makes the pain even worse.
👇 And after a while, the pain becomes so severe that it is impossible to step on the leg or move the hand. The most extreme case is when the joint is so destroyed that surgical intervention and surgery to replace it is required, but it is certainly better not to bring it to this state.
📝To reduce and prevent pain, make an appointment at our center, where you can be diagnosed and receive a consultation from a specialist. After an appointment you will be prescribed an individual treatment program to eliminate the disease, which, acting gently and at the same time targeted directly to the area of the painful joint, restores normal vital processes in all tissues surrounding the joint - relieves muscle spasm, opens the blood capillaries, resolves swelling, reduces inflammation.
A special course of rehabilitation is prescribed for patients who need an extra attention. All 12 sessions will be individually supervised by a physiotherapist and include an initial consultation and 3 additional visits to the physiotherapist. An additional visit, if necessary, can be replaced by an individual session with the attending physiotherapist.
