If you have the disk protrusion detected during the examination, you still have the chances for an active life without pain. In this case the administration of drugs is not always efficient, as the drugs eliminate the symptoms only without curing its progression. In order to get rid of pain and return to your functional living, use a unique Dr. Bubnovsky’s technique.
You can learn the benefits of the remedial therapy regimen for your disease by asking us questions. Allow yourself living pain-free, continuous drugs administration and dangerous surgeries!
Protrusion: treatment, causes, preventive measures. Under normal conditions the vertebrae are flexibly interconnected. This is facilitated by the spine muscular-ligamentous apparatus and elastic formations between them - intervertebral disks. They serve as the so-called seal between the bone formations. The intervertebral disk consists of a fibrous capsule and nucleus pulposus inside. The maintenance of the disk normal structure is provided by the nutrients coming with the blood flow during active motion.
Disk bulging outside the intervertebral interspace or protrusion is one of the osteochondrosis manifestations. Mineral metabolism abnormality, decreased activity followed by the muscles atrophy lead to the blood supply and intervertebral disk nutrition disturbance. Consequently, the elasticity of disk nucleus pulposus changes, water content in the cartilage decreases, microfissures appear in the fibrous ring. The disk bulging is being developed outside the intervertebral interspace. At the same time the neurovascular bundles are affected causing the characteristic manifestations.
The disk protrusion alone may be reversible if treated on time. In case of disturbances progress the disk nucleus pulposus can completely fall outside the intervertebral joint bounds. At that, the true hernia develops causing a variety of symptoms:
Most common the disk protrusion occurs in the cervical and lumbar spine. Cervical spine protrusion is a consequence of the age-related degenerative changes or “sedentary” lifestyle. Thoracic spine disk protrusion occurs very rare, since the ribs attached to the thoracic vertebrae create additional rigid frame. The lumbar spine accounts for the largest load, so the degenerative processes of the vertebrae in this region occur very often. In the initial stage the protrusion is not clinically manifested. Complaints appear upon inflammation or significant impact on the neurovascular bundle.
Drug therapy is aimed only at eliminating the symptoms of the disease and slows down the process slightly. Operative measures in case of protrusion most commonly are not effective, since degenerative changes occur throughout the body, thus eliminating of one hernia or protrusion does not guarantee healing.
The best results will be obtained based on the lifestyle modification and kinesitherapy. The unique remedial therapy according to Dr. Bubnovsky’s method will not only eliminate the symptoms associated with protrusion, but also stop the disease progress and prevent disease recurrence.
