Timely detection of problems and treatment of the musculoskeletal system is a crucial task. Being a skeleton for the whole organism, the ailments that occur in ODE are automatically reflected in other organs and systems, reduce the vital activity of a person and negatively affect the quality of life.
Unfortunately, in recent years there has been a steady trend towards the development of various diseases of the spine and limbs at a young age. In addition, not all of them are associated with injuries, but are caused by an improper lifestyle, poor heredity, harmful environmental influences, etc. For example, if earlier such common diseases as osteochondrosis, intervertebral hernias, osteoporosis, etc. most often had people of retirement age, today they are often diagnosed in patients who have not reached middle years.
In this regard, it becomes clear why diseases of the musculoskeletal system (OA) are perhaps the most common among the adult population of the planet, second only to diseases of the cardiovascular system.
Methods of treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system
The treatment of diseases of the spine, limbs, joints, bone tissue primarily involves the use of complex conservative therapy. Patients are prescribed certain anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs, wearing special supportive corsets, exercise therapy is prescribed.
The course of treatment is aimed mainly at relieving the symptoms of the disease. Conservative methods in this case necessarily include the use of physiotherapeutic procedures, such as electrophoresis, magnetotherapy, therapeutic massage, etc.
In the absence of the proper effect from the treatment of medication, in especially severe cases, with advanced stages of the disease, in the presence of a threat to the patient’s life, operational methods are used to combat ODE diseases. Surgical treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system includes endoprosthetics (knee, hip joints), radical surgical intervention, scalpel removal of intervertebral hernias, etc.
An important role in the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system is played by spa treatment. It is especially effective for the prevention of exacerbations and at the stage of remission of various diseases of ODA.
