In recent years, spine diseases have acquired a pandemic character and now they represent a certain medical and social problem. Medical statistics indicate that pain in various spine areas worries every second person after the age of thirty. Osteochondrosis is one of the most common diseases accompanied by pain in the spine area. It accounts for about 70% of cases of pain sense modality.
Osteochondrosis: causes and symptoms
Osteochondrosis is a spine disorder, which is associated with the metabolic disorders and dystrophic damage of the intervertebral discs and vertebral tissues.
The causes of disease progression are not fully explored. The most common ones are:
- sedentary lifestyle;
- mineral metabolism disorder;
- improper nutrition;
- spinal injuries;
- rough labor;
- harmful addictions (excessive drinking, smoking);
- excessive weight;
- constant wearing of uncomfortable shoes.
Depending on the area of pathology localization, there are the following types of osteochondrosis: cervical, thoracic or lumbosacral. The aspect of disease and structural spine changes are characterized by four stages and four degrees. The most common symptom of osteochondrosis is severe pain, which can be localized not only in the area of the affected intervertebral disc, but also in the heart, ribs, chest, and abdomen, under the shoulder blades, in the cervical or occipital areas. In addition, among the prominent disease features there are:
- muscle and general weakness;
- “crepitus” of the affected spine area;
- respiratory difficulty;
- numbness of the limbs;
- gastrointestinal disorders;
- feeling of “creeping sensation” in certain areas.
If you do not pay the due attention to osteochondrosis treatment, it can result in muscle atrophy, limb paralysis, spinal stroke, intervertebral hernia, sciatica, and various disorders of internal organs functioning.
Osteochondrosis treatment: role of Ca-regulators
Osteochondrosis treatment is a complex treatment including drug therapy, physiotherapy, therapeutic exercises and massage. The correct selection of medications will jugulate pain, optimize local blood circulation, relax spasmodic muscles, normalize metabolic processes and spinal functioning, as well as prevent the progression of degenerative changes.
The complex of drug therapy during osteochondrosis treatment involves the use of anti-inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen, Rheopyrin), antispasmodic agents (Droverine), antioxidants (vitamins C, N, E), hemocirculation stimulants (Actovegin, Trental), Ca-regulators (body cream KSI cream, body cream Ca-vitactive, Aclasta).
Ca-regulating agents (bisphosphonates) play a special role during osteochondrosis treatment. They perform as so-called calcium conductors, helping it move from the circulatory system to the trabeculae structure. The consequence of this process is the strengthening of bone tissue, preventing its resorption and fragility. Bisphosphonates are indispensable for bone disease treatment. Their effectiveness is rather high and clinically proven.
Series of Ca-regulating agents Repharm
The group of Ca-regulating agents “Repharm” is represented by a wide range of medications, including creams and gels for body, foot, face and eyelids:
- body cream KSIcream Са-control;
- body cream Ca-vitactive;
- Repharm toning foot cream;
- body cream AKSINIA Са-interactive in case of accumulation of salts;
- anti-wrinkle cream AKSINIA Са-interactive;
- dental elixir KSIDENT, etc.
All creams and gels are manufactured on a natural basis and contain bisphosphonates as one of the main components. The use of Repharm creams in complex therapy during the treatment of osteochondrosis, accumulation of salts, and osteoporosis allows achieving a stable health-promoting effect. Thus, the highly effective BiPH-complex of Ca-vitactive cream not only helps to reduce pain, but also takes part in the regulation of calcium metabolism at the cellular level, increases bone mineral density, and reduces the risk of insoluble calcium salts formation. The complex of body cream KSI cream Ca-control relieves pain and prevents pathological deposition of calcium salts in tissues.
In comparison with Ca-regulating pills or injections, Repharm creams have a number of undeniable advantages. It has no serious side effects such as diarrhea, nausea, visual deterioration, which can occur in case of taking pills or injections. Repharm medications can be used without any restrictions, which is also facilitated by their affordable price.
