CERVICAL SYNDROME IS DIVIDED IN RELATION TO THE NECK ZONE WHERE IT CAME ON:
- CERVICOCEPHAL OF THE C1-C4 NECK VERTEBRA
- CERVICOBRACHIAL OF C4-Th1 VERTEBRATES
CERVICOCEPHAL SYNDROME occurs in the level from c1 (Atlas) to c4, the patient feels tinnitus, headaches, tension headaches, the appearance of lights in front of the eyes, pain in the back of the head. Very often, patients associate this condition with hypertension (high blood pressure).
CERVICOBRACHIAL SYNDROME occurs at the level of c4 to Th1, the patient has symptoms, tingling in the hand, decreased feeling in relation to the other hand, shoulder pain, pain between the shoulder blades.
Mostly tingling and paresthesias that appear along the arm, occur only at night.
Patients are either awakened by pain during sleep, or before dawn, and it occurs because the disc is hydrated and filled with water.
IN ADDITION TO THE DIVISION IN RELATION TO THE NECK ZONE, WE HAVE A DIVISION IN RELATION TO THE CAUSE OF CERVICAL SYNDROME:
- Facet syndrome
- Central myelopathy
- Protrusions and disc herniation of the cervical spine
Cervical syndrome can be said to be a disease of the modern age, once degenerative changes in the discs occurred after the age of 45, now there are cases that occur as early as the age of 25, sometimes even earlier. Frequent use of computers, tablets, work in the IT sector, as well as jobs where the use of computers is unavoidable lead to this syndrome.
The disease itself goes through three stages:
Acute phase, mostly in that phase, patients try to solve their problem on their own, drug therapy, various types of gels.
Subacute phase and in this phase, patients try to solve their problem on their own, because they do not recognize that they have entered this phase.
The chronic phase here, patients usually come for help, because they realize that they cannot solve their problem on their own, at this stage they notice that the feeling in the hand is completely different in relation to the other hand.
HOW TO KNOW WITH CERTAINITY WHETHER IS CERVICAL SYNDROME?
- A physiatric examination or functional status is performed
- Neurological examination
- MR scan
- CT scan
- EMNG (electromyoneurography)
When we determine with certainty that it is a cervical syndrome, we apply the following forms of therapy:
- Chiropractic (if indicated)
- Manual non-invasive method
- Laser therapy
- Kinesitherapy (exercises)
- Therapeutic massage
After completing the program of planned therapies, the patient received exercises that he later performed independently at home.
