Back pains – natural treatment

dureri de spate - skinmed clinic

When back pain occurs (lumbar, dorsal or cervical), the most common cause most patients think is herniated disc. But that is not always the case. 

Many times it is just serious muscle contractions, caused by an incorrect posture during the day. 

In other cases, it happens that a scar left by a surgical intervention or by an accident, or even a dental problem, may give rise to disturbances in the functioning of the muscular-skeletal system (by altering the signal transmitted to the brain by the receptors in these areas).

All these are situations where a discopathy or spondylosis renders difficult the diagnosis, while the patient’s problem is simpler.

As a colleague neurosurgeon, who also practices ozonotherapy, once said:  "back pain + ozone = no pain".

Most commonly, cervical spondylitis enter this category when the severe contraction of upper and lower neck muscles causes the same symptoms as spondylosis (the contracture may be so severe that it may deform the normal position of the spine over time).

Ozone therapy specialists have been validating over the last 40 years a complementary method of treatment, whereby the quality of life of the patient increases significantly, and drug treatment effect it much quicker. 

We talk about intramuscular infiltrations with ozone, parallel to the spine, in the area affected by hernia or spondylosis. Infiltrations with ozone are not painful!

Though it stings a little when injected, ozone has significant painkiller effects on nerve endings in the targeted area. To combat pain, the main mode of administration is the injection of tender points and trigger points. 

These are bundles of muscle and nerve fibers that generate painful signals in specific areas. Sometimes the pain is generated around them, sometimes at a distance. 

There are some painful / sensitive points that most people have, but they can also occur as a result of acute trauma or micro traumatism produced repeatedly over a long period of time.

Their isolation and ozone injection are the fastest and most effective way to get rid of pain.

Of course, in parallel, the cause that triggered their activation should also be treated, but the quality of the patient’s life no longer suffers.
