Osteochondrosis can be the main cause of dizziness and headache. About this, referring to the neurologist Gleb Markelov, writes “Russian newspaper” on Tuesday, September 28th.
Malaise is often associated with migraines. According to the doctor, people can complain about it for years, and the doctor can prescribe pills for them. In 70% of cases, the headache is associated with neck problems.
“Headache develops in the so-called vertebral artery syndrome, when, due to degenerative changes in the spine, there is a marked decrease in the volume of blood flowing through the vertebral arteries to the brain,” Markelov said.
The neurologist noted that osteochondrosis is an age-related change in the body. It cannot be cured, since it is impossible to fight natural processes. At the same time, Markelov is convinced that the prevention of osteochondrosis can and should be dealt with, this will slow down its development.
“First of all, it is important to eliminate hypodynamia and strengthen the muscles of the back: regularly go to the pool and gym,” the doctor concluded.
