Spinal disease patients do not benefit from “meter”
Many people today like to do “meter” exercises, thinking that “meter” exercises can prevent cervical spondylosis.
The “meter” exercise includes flexion and extension, lateral flexion, and rotation of the cervical spine, and also includes several composite actions of different actions.
Is the “M” exercise really beneficial for patients with cervical spondylosis?
This starts with cervical spondylosis.
In fact, there are several types of cervical spondylosis, including cervical spondylosis of the cervical spondylosis, cervical spondylosis of the nerve root type, cervical spondylosis of the spinal cord, cervical spondylosis of the vertebral arteries, and sympathetic cervical spondylosis.
The lateral flexion of the neck in the “M” exercise can cause the intervertebral foramen of the nerve root to shrink, exacerbating the condition of patients with cervical spondylosis of the nerve root type; and the extension of the neck in the “M” exercise can cause the cervical spinal canal.Narrowing can aggravate the symptoms of patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy; for patients with cervical spondylotic vertebral artery, cervical rotation in the “meter” exercise can cause dizziness.
Therefore, the author believes that the “meter” exercise not only can not prevent cervical spondylosis, but will aggravate the condition of some types of cervical spondylosis patients. It is not worth doing, and it is not worth advocating!
Rehabilitation medicine is an emerging discipline in modern medicine, which attaches importance to the scientific nature of medical exercise.
For the exercise of patients with cervical spondylosis, we generally adopt the principle of isometric training, that is, during the training, the muscles are contracted but the length of the muscles does not change, which can exercise the muscle strength of the neck without the need for cervical lateral flexion and posteriorExercises such as stretching and rotation, so as not to aggravate certain types of cervical spondylosis, so the exercise of patients with cervical spondylosis should be performed under the guidance of professionals.
