Osteochondrosis — is the deposition of salt?

Osteochondrosis is now widely regarded as a disease of the century. Even young people aged 30-40 are increasingly affected by it. Also leading a sedentary lifestyle.

When there is pain in the cervical spine, discomfort and crunch when you turn the head, usually a person believes that this is due to the deposition of salt. Although it is not quite so.

Indeed, calcium salts with mineral metabolism disorders are retained in ligaments and cartilage. This is only part of the disease.

The essence of osteoarthritis is the destruction of bone tissue. Loss of elasticity of cartilage and ligaments.
The main thing with which the disease begins. This is a loss of elasticity of the intervertebral disc cartilage. At the same time, the disc becomes less elastic with time. It dries out. Bulges out. Torn, forming a hernia. Squeezes the vertebrae, passing near the nerves and blood vessels.

The bone structure of the vertebrae also suffers. They change their shape. The edges are no longer smooth. Become sharp. There are so-called thorns (osteophytes). Muscles due to constant irritation tense. Compressed and limit the mobility of the spine.

How dangerous cervical osteochondrosis?

The cervical spine is the most mobile and constantly loaded. Because it holds in position a rather massive head.
Osteochondrosis usually affects the most mobile elements of the spine. It is dangerous because there are many nerve endings and vessels in the neck. There are large vertebral arteries that supply blood to the brain. When squeezing the vertebral artery occurs oxygen starvation of the brain and spinal cord. There is a threat of ischemic stroke.

Continuous compression of nerves and blood vessels, their convulsions and inflammation lead to acute and chronic cerebral blood flow disorders. And also to the nervous regulation of internal organs. Consequently, for cervical osteochondrosis, there are headaches, dizziness, high blood pressure jumps, tachycardia, heart pain, numbness of the hands, hearing loss, eyesight.
