Spine diseases

Scoliosis

Scoliosis

A medical condition in which the spine is curved – to the right, to the left, or combined.

 

From the standpoint of the curvature we distinguish two basic types of scoliosis. The type resembling the letter C, called Large-curve scoliosis, is considered to be the simplest and most common.

 

The second type of scoliosis, resembling the letter S, is called Compensated scoliosis. This type is characterized by deviation both to the left and right. Apart from the curvature in the pectoral region (for example, when the spine is curved to the left), this deviation is compensated by a deviation in the lumbar region.

 

 

 

Kyphosis – round back

Has its peak on the level of the 6th to 8th vertebras.There are several factors manifested in kyphosis, and, like scoliosis, it is caused by improper position of the pelvis and coccyx. It results in incorrect posture with the chest being bent over (often as a compensation of hyperlordosis).

 

This position is the most widespread – it is comfortable because it requires no energy. However, in this position, the weakening of abdominal muscles and the one-sided stress of discs occurs, whose front side is constantly pushed down and back side is pulled up resulting in one-sided wear-off

 

The main symptoms include protruding shoulder bone, forward-bent head, flat chest and forward-pulled arms.

 

 

THERAPY
With all of these diagnoses, therapy depends upon the extent of dislocation of the structures. The bigger the dislocation the more effort is needed ― both mine and the patient´s ― to change the condition in a positive way; the procedure involves putting the whole axis of the body into alignment, from the hip joints through the coccyx up to particular vertebras; also relaxing particular muscles. In most cases, we experience immediate results and relief of pain.

Hyperlordosis

Hyperlordosis

Hyperlordosis is manifested by excessive bending in the hips.

Straightened kyphosis and lordosis

These are manifested by insufficiently curved spine.

Disc protrusion

It is a sliding-out of the disc without damage to the ligamental coat.

Disc hernia

It is a sliding-out of disc with damage to the ligamental coat.

 

A – lateral – one nerve root coming out of the dural sac is attacked.
B – paramedian – two adjacent nerves are attacked, usually at one time.
C – medial – several roots are attacked simultaneously.

 

Osteoporosis

Lumboischiadic syndrome

An acute, painful condition, where dislocated vertebra and discs or contracted muscles attack the sciatic nerve. 

 

A – simple depression of the root – which is manifested by pain and irritation – however, neither reflexes nor muscle power are affected. 
B – stronger depression – causes weakening of certain muscle groups, loss of reflexes and sensitivity.

 

 

 

Piriformis syndrome

This is an attack of the sitting nerves relevant to this muscle. This condition is a sign that relevant nerves do not have enough space, for one reason or another. And I know from my experiences the causative factor is almost always joint dislocation. The pain is a sign of blocked energyflow after contraction of muscles.

 

 

THERAPY
Procedure is very similar to the procedure applied with scoliosis. All joints, pelvis, coccyx and individual vertebras have to be relaxed and put into their proper position, up to the neck. The pelvis is very often rotated and the coccyx is dipped. Only after these parts are put in place, do we proceed with the correction of vertebras and individual nerves. I follow these procedures because I know that this is the best possible method and, in addition, it maintains its proper position for the longest period of time. With protrusion, hernia and diagnoses that do not involve urgent surgery, immediate relief of pain occurs after the therapy and, because everything is in its proper place, gradual regeneration of individual structures takes place.
