When a doctor diagnoses - cervical osteochondrosis, the symptoms of treatment are inextricably linked. This is because this disease is considered complex and multilevel, this or that symptom will tell not only about the stage of the disease, but also about what exactly it extends to, to which vital areas of the body are affected.
A person who has experienced the symptoms of osteochondrosis of the neck in the form of pain and stiffness of movement can quickly alleviate their condition. The pain must be relieved. Fats will have an effective effect, they are saved economically. When taking painkillers, you must respect the dosage and contraindications.
After alleviating the patient's condition, a doctor should be consulted. We must not forget that analgesics can only mask the symptoms, but they cannot get rid of the disease. Separately, it should be noted that for pain that is reflected from the neck to the back, arm and leg fat is applied exclusively to the neck. But, despite the fact that the person did not go to the doctor, he cannot know the exact diagnosis. And he tries to "cure" everything at once, successfully achieving only an allergic effect.
Treatment is prescribed only after a complete examination and diagnosis. It is intended to improve blood circulation in the affected areas, relieve swelling and tension, and relieve pain. For that, analgesics in the form of ointments or injections (antispasmodics) are used.

Physiotherapy procedures will help relieve pain and alleviate the patient's condition. Electrophoresis, paraffin and water procedures, magnetotherapy, ultrasound and ultraviolet radiation are successfully used in this disease. Massage (not strong) and corrective gymnastics (regular) have proven themselves well. Wearing special medical necklaces will help support your head and neck.
An alternative, and in other cases an adjunct to treatment, is special gymnastics.
It is necessary to carefully monitor the body's allergic reactions to the ingredients used and keep in mind that these drugs alleviate but do not cure the disease.
