Infants pick up prematurely or damage the cervical spine
[Introduction]The incidence of cervical spondylosis will increase with the improvement of human living standards, but if it can cause a comprehensive understanding of the pathogenesis factors, discover the spread of scientific knowledge, and pay attention to prevention, the increasing incidence will also decrease.
1. Measures to Prevent Cervical Spondylosis Midwifery doctors should understand the new scientific research results of spinal disease experts, be proficient in midwifery technology, and prevent excessive twisting of the baby’s head and neck.
Preventing cervical spondylosis has become the primary responsibility of midwives.
Do not pick up your baby too soon after birth. Prolonging the bed time properly is the best treatment for existing birth injuries, and it has a preventive effect on those who have no birth injuries.
When holding a child, the adult must intervene with one hand to prevent the head from overextending and flexing.
The child is prevented from sleeping in a stroller.
Prevent fall and car fall, and there must be a high enough guardrail beside the bed.
Do not play games that can cause cervical spine injury during adolescence.
School physical education class should do pad exercises, horizontal and parallel bars, and turn over. There should be enough elastic pads. Teachers must strengthen guidance and protection.
Instruct students to strengthen students’ awareness of protection and actively participate in health-friendly activities.
Beware of sudden braking when riding.
Do not sleep while riding. If you are too sleepy, you must sleep on your back and protect your cervical spine.
Co-driver’s seat is most susceptible to injury, it is best not to sit. If you must sit, you should wear a seat belt.
For suspicious cervical trauma, prevent injury to the cervical spine when moving.
For suspicious cervical spine injury, a detailed examination should be done, and X-ray, CT, and MRI examinations should be performed in time to prevent missed diagnosis.
Prolonged bowing should be done regularly and supplementary exercise.
Every 1-2 hours of bowing or raising your head, you need to do some activities to reduce muscle tension.
Do not sleep on your stomach while sleeping. Pillows must not be too high, too stiff or too flat.
Don’t lean your head on the sofa arm to watch TV and sleep.
Cold, avoid, avoid midnight, take a shower in the early morning or be blown by the wind and cold.
Pharyngeal infection, tonsillitis, and cervical spondylosis are the cause and effect of each other. In the early stage, cervical spondylosis caused by the backward spread of the infection can cause chronic pharyngitis when cervical spondylosis is formed. Therefore, attention should be paid to throat inflammation.
Iatrogenic cervical spine injuries should be highly prevented.
Violent massage has the most rotation reduction, followed by cervical dislocation of the cervical spine caused by tooth extraction, and advancement of the superior articular process caused by cervical hyperextension during thyroid surgery.
2. Countermeasures after the onset of cervical spondylosis Patients with acute or initial episodes of cervical spondylosis should pay proper attention to rest, and those with severe illness should stay in bed for 2-3 weeks.
Bed rest plays an important role in restoring muscle relaxation, reducing muscle contraction and the weight of the head on the intervertebral disc, and the reduction of tissue edema.
Avoid prolonged work.
At the desk, change your position after working for about an hour.
Pay attention to correct bad posture in life, do not place the seat in the air-conditioned cold wind directly to the place where it arrives, quit smoking and reduce smoking, avoid repeated infection of the throat caused by overwork, avoid excessive load and human vibration forceps to reduce the impact on the disc.
Cervical spondylosis medical rehabilitation exercise is an important means to consolidate the curative effect and prevent recurrence.
All types of cervical spondylosis, including patients recovering from surgery, can be done.
Those who have obvious muscle atrophy due to muscle atrophy, malnutrition or disuse in various parts of the body, and joints around the cervical vertebrae, ligaments, muscles and other tissues cause adhesions due to activities and severe stiffness, should actively exercise.
In normal times, you can use palm (left and right rotation) massage to gently reset and help soft tissues such as muscles to fold and prevent stepping on.
