Neck pain

The neck provides the connection between the head and the body. Supports our head and holds it in a balanced position. It allows you to move easily in many directions. The great vessels that pass from the head to the body are responsible for protecting the spinal nerves leading to the arm. The neck has the most complex joint structure in the body and is the most mobile part of the spine. These causes are open to acute or occupational trauma.


Neck pain is a common health problem and can be seen in people of all ages. Every third person in the community recalls that they had neck pain at least once in their lifetime. The vast majority have mild and temporary pain. It can rarely be very painful, but sometimes severe enough to cause disability.

Other neck pain caused by muscle and connective Injuries, Trauma, osteoarthritis (Arthritis), Neck Hernia (disc hernia), rheumatic diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, such as disease), spinal canal Contraction, Psychological Factors, poor posture, very soft bed and lack of appropriate thickness of the pad, myofascial pain Syndrome called neck and soft tissue associated pain is manifested by sensitive points back muscles, neck tumors, spinal cord tumors, bone infections (tuberculosis, brucellosis) can be the cause of neck and arm pain. pain caused by the shoulder joint can mimic neck and arm pain. Esophagus, trachea, rarely felt pain in the neck in thyroid and lung diseases.

How is Neck Pain Treated?
A painful and distressed neck may get better within a few days - a few weeks, even if no special treatment is done. The only thing usually required is to provide a comfortable position as much as possible. The following treatment methods can be used when neck pain is severe and lasts for a long time.

Medication
Simple painkillers, antirheumatic drugs and muscle relaxants are frequently used in painful periods
Non-drug treatments
Hot application and massage can relax the muscles and relieve pain. Physical therapy agents (electrical currents, heating agents, traction, etc.) can be used in treatment. Neck tightening also helps to restrain joints and muscles and alleviate pain by restricting neck movements. Painful topical pain relief injections may be effective in soft tissue-derived pain (especially in myofascial pain). In addition to these treatments, HIL THERAPY (high intensity laser applications) is effective in resolving acute pain and muscle spasms. In addition, with the Spinal Decompression System (Drx) it is possible to shrink the neck without surgery and reduce the pain.

Exercises

The exercises recommended for the neck provide full range of motion and increase muscle strength. It is very helpful in the treatment of the complaints of arrest which can stay long after the pain has passed. Sports activities involving soft neck movements such as swimming, cycling, and walking are also useful. However, sports involving sudden neck movements, such as tennis, can cause an exacerbation of complaints. In general, more neck should not be moved than the pain permits.

Surgical Treatment
Surgical treatment (surgery) is required for the following problems with the neck.

     Spinal tumor or abscess
     Having a spinal canal pressurizing the spinal cord with loss of muscle strength, sensation and reflex
     Complaints continue despite treatment
     Spine fracture and backbone shift
     Those with severe spinal cord and nerve pressure

 Useful Suggestions for people with neck pain:

In this case, a specialist rheumatologist will assist you in finding the best treatment plan for your condition. Rheumatism; Elbows, joints, and soft tissues. The rheumatic diseases that occur in soft tissues are usually caused by inflammation. Causes severe pain in the waist and knee areas. What are the symptoms of rheumatic diseases? Rheumatism is characterized by the following seven symptoms: 1) pain or discomfort generally felt near one or more joints (including the spine) 2) pain associated with movement in the affected area 3) Pain felt when touching the affected area 4) Curing of the affected parts, especially when immobilized 5) Symptomatic improvement after mild exercise, but worsening after severe exercise 6) Symptomatic deterioration in response to climatic factors, especially falling barometric pressure and rising humidity 7) Improvement by hot application to the affected region / region Although not all of the seven symptoms are present in all rheumatic pain syndromes, at least the first four symptoms are present in the majority   Which regions affect rheumatism? Rheumatism can be seen with many diseases. These diseases are: Osteoarthritis (OA): Osteoarthritis damages cartilage, the soft material at the tip of the bones. When worn, joints are damaged and are difficult to move. It usually affects knees, hips, lumbar support, neck, fingers and feet. Symptoms are pain, swelling, temperature, stiffness. Muscle weakness can make joints unbalanced. Depending on which parts of the body it affects, the OA can make it difficult to walk, to hold objects, to dress, or even sit. Rheumatoid arthritis: Lupus (also called SLE or systemic lupus erythematosus) is an autoimmune disease.

It mostly involves joints of the spine that are attached to the pelvis, known as sacroiliac joints. Ankylosing spondylitis is more common in young people under 30 years of age. The symptoms are:     Gradual pain in back and hip     Increased back pain can go up to the backbone     Pain felt in the shoulder and neck     Pain and stiffness on the back, especially at rest     Pain and stiffness are better after activity     Pain in the upper and lower parts of the back     If the condition worsens, the spine gets harder and it is difficult to carry out daily activities.

The specifications are:      Eye foundation      Eye irritation and burning      Oral establishment      Tooth decay and gum disease      Percent swelling      Joint pain and stiffness (rarely)      Internal organ diseases (rarely) Other conditions causing rheumatism are: Bursitis, tendinitis, frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome and gut. How are rheumatic diseases treated? Pain medications are used to relieve pain in the treatment of rheumatic diseases. Rheumatic medicines in the form of gels or pills are used prescription.

Flat Neck and back

Flat Neck and back

The spine consists of 33 separate bones stacked on top of each other. This spinal column provides the main support for your body; Stand upright, bend  Thus protecting the spine from injury. Strong muscles and bones, flexible tendons and ligaments and sensitive nerves contribute to a healthy vertebrae. However, if any of these structures are affected by stress, injury or disease, it can cause pain. From the side, the adult spine has a natural S-shaped curve. The neck (cervical) and waist regions have a slightly concave curve, and the chest and sacral regions have a light convex curve. Curves; Acts like a helical spring to act as a damper, to provide balance and to allow motion range along the spine. The spine consists of 26 discs called vertebrae. The spinal cord protects the spinal cord, allowing it to stand and bend. A number of problems can alter the structure of the spine or damage the spine and surrounding tissue. These problems include age-related bone changes such as infections, injuries, tumors, ankylosing spondylitis and scoliosis, spinal stenosis, and herniated discs. Changes in the spine cause spinal diseases and severe soreness by applying pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. It makes it hard to move. Treatment for spinal diseases varies according to the cause of the disease, and in some cases surgical treatment may be required. Flat back  back flatness is a discomfort that should be corrected with medical treatment or physical therapy in case of damage to the waist region and in the case that the belly is not protected. The natural structure of the spine has a slight inclination in the waist region. Incorrect exercises, inverse and sudden movements, erroneously lifting heavy loads lead to flattening of the waist by damaging the natural curvature of the waist region. In patients with lumbar flattening, the normal lumbar cavity is lost and causes spinal instability. The patient's head starts leaning forward out of the body and may experience problems standing upright. This imbalance can cause muscle fatigue and pain. Waist flattening can be caused by degenerative disc disease, lumbar post laminectomy syndrome, compression fractures, ankylosing spondylitis. In the flattening of the area, pain occurs. In addition to regional pain, pain is exacerbated during sudden movement. Physical therapy methods are used in the treatment of waist flatness diagnosed by x-ray. Many patients with Lumbar Spine Syndrome can be treated without surgery. The treatment first involves aerobic exercise, weight lifting, and a proper exercise plan that includes strengthening of the nucleus muscles. Physical therapy and spinal manipulation are used depending on the symptoms of the patient. Drugs are often used to reduce symptoms of lumbar spinal cord syndrome. Spinal cord injections for joint arthritis or impaired nerve disease also benefit treatment. Surgical reconstruction may ultimately be needed in some patients with structural problems or severe curvature. The purpose of this surgery is to improve the patient's pain and spinal alignment. Following physiotherapy, the patient must pay attention to:     Proper and regular exercise is required to avoid recurrence of the disease after physical therapy.     One of the most important causes of discomforts related to waist, neck and back is to be overweight. For this reason, patients with waistline should be careful not to lose weight after physical therapy.     It is very important to relax as much as it is important to move. For this reason, choosing the right bed and pillow is also very important.     You can get rid of the risk of damaging your belly by sitting on the back, especially by choosing your office chair correctly.     Correct posture positions must be learned. You need to use the correct positions while standing, sitting or leaning. At this point you are most likely to suffer from damage.     Care should be taken to avoid damage to the site, especially when leaning. When you lean against it, weight should be given equal to both legs. Also, when the load is carried, the weight should be given equally to both the right and left. Flat Neck The neck is flattened by losing its natural arc. The young population is more likely to suffer from stress problems and impaired posture. The main reason for this is the fact that people who are constantly studying and writing are constantly bowing towards the front. In this case, it causes flattening. One of the most important causes of neck flattening syndrome is overloading the neck. Impacts on the neck may also lead to neck flatness. Standing still for too long in the same position can cause excessive fatigue and stress to neck flatness. Other causes of neck flattening are:     The neck flattening resulting from posture disorder is so obvious that it can be diagnosed with physical examination.     Pain is felt when the neck is moved in the neck flattened due to a long standing motion in the same position. If the head is turned to the right or to the left and there is pain or strain, it may be a sign of neck flatness.     Neck pain is the most obvious symptom of neck flattening.     The advanced stage of neck flattening disables the spinal nerves. In this situation, numbness and tingling may occur in the hands. Sudden loss of feelings is a symptom of neck flattening. Neck flattening is diagnosed by pulling the MR. It is a possible discomfort that causes the quality of life of the person to fall and the treatment is possible. Flat Neck and back Treatments In the treatment of neck and waist flatness, the patient is informed about how to use and protect his / her body. The patient is allowed to rest. Manual therapy, electrotherapy and physiotherapy treatments are used for correction treatment. With proper posture training it is possible to exercise regularly every day Precautions to be taken against neck and back flatness Correct posture and sitting disturbances should be corrected to prevent neck and waist flatness disorders.      Sitting in the same position without moving for a long time leads to flattening of the waist. For this reason, the sitting position should be changed frequently and should be moved by taking a short walk and standing up per hour.      People who need to work standing should sit every hour.      It is recommended that people who work for a long time bow there head regularly to perform neck exercises.

Bursitis, Tendonitis

Bursitis, Tendonitis

Tendonitis or bursitis disorders are inflammations of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, knee, hip and ankle. Inflammation usually occurs over a long period of time. However, in some cases sudden inflammation problems can also be seen. For example, some people may have a heavy burden on their shoulders due to their profession. This can lead to inflammation of the shoulder bones. People with very heavy burdens can have inflammation on their elbows and wrists. Persons standing continuously are at higher risk of developing inflammation on their knees and feet. Inflammation can also occur in the heart of people who are constantly sitting and working. Tendonitis: In tendinitis, tendons and muscles are cut and easily damaged. This may cause inflammation. Tendinitis can lead to severe soreness. Bursitis: Between the bone and muscle inflammation of the small incisions between the tendon or skin. This inflammation can cause serious soreness. What are the causes of tendinotis and bursitis? Repetition of the same movements can lead to tendonitis and bursitis. For example, typing on the keyboard for a long time, walking, cutting and chopping operations can be counted.      Failure to choose the right shoes can also result in tendonitis and bursitis. Shoes that disturb feet cause tendonitis and bursitis.      Blood and kidney diseases can also cause tendinitis and bursitis.      In old age, tendonitis and bursitis are more common in the legs, hips and elbows.      The use of certain antibiotics and medicines also causes tearing of the fibers leading to tendonitis and bursitis. How is tendonitis and bursitis diagnosed? In the case of tendinitis and bursitis, physical examination of the patient is performed first. The cause, the severity and the story of the disease are learned. Imaging techniques such as x-ray and MR can be used for this. Blood tests may be needed to measure the inflammation. How is tendonitis and bursitis treated? Tendonite and bursitis; It is a discomfort that seriously affects bone and muscle structure. The methods used in the treatment of these conditions are:     Rest is recommended first in all bone and muscle diseases. At this point, the muscle and bone should not be overloaded, should not be lifted heavily, and should be careful not to be hit.     Ice application is a very effective treatment method for relieving pain. Ice compressing the painful area 3 or 4 times a day for about 15 minutes helps reduce pain.     Medication may be prescribed to relieve pain and inflammation in patients with tendinitis and bursitis.     Repetition of movements leading to tendinitis and bursitis may interfere with the treatment of the disease. For this reason, it may be necessary to use supporting devices and apparatus in the region where the pain occurs. For example, the use of a walking stick helps to relieve the pain caused by the pain and prevent recurrence of the illness.     Physical therapy can treat tendinitis and bursitis. Intelligent exercise programs, massage, cold hot application can be done in person by specialist therapists in the field.     Physical therapy techniques may require surgical intervention as a result of the disease being unable to be treated. However, surgical intervention in the treatment of tendinitis and bursitis is the last stage. In some cases it may suffice to inject cortisone. If cortisone does not help, surgical intervention may be required. How are measures against the risk of tendonitis and bursitis? The precautions against the risk of developing tendonitis and bursitis are:     The risk of tendonitis and bursitis is very high in people who exercise extensively. You should take care to do warm-up and stretching movements before doing sports or exercising. In this case, the risk of tendonitis and bursitis is minimized.     Sports or exercise can be done very quickly, causing tendonitis and bursitis. For this, the exhaust should start slowly and accelerate as it gets warmer.     Excessive breaks in the exfoliants lead to tendonitis and bursitis. For this reason, it is much more beneficial to exercise regularly for 25-30 minutes every day instead of doing intensive exercise one day a week.     Using the right equipment and sporting equipment will help to minimize the risk of trauma that can occur.     Constantly standing at the same position also causes tendonitis and bursitis. The position of standing should be changed,
