Semi-lying posture during the highest incidence of lumbar disc herniation in autumn
Mr. Chen, a 30-year-old editor, is a copywriter. He works at the desk for eight or nine hours a day. He is used to resting on the table at noon. He does n’t want to move when he comes home at night. He leans on the sofa and plays with the computer.It was all night.
Not long ago, he suddenly had severe back pain, and went to the orthopedic clinic for a fractured lumbar disc herniation.
Autumn is a period of high incidence of orthopedic diseases, especially lumbar disc herniation.
Because of the cold wind and dampness in the autumn and winter, invasion of the human body can easily cause blood vessels to be poor, causing pain in the patient’s part.
Too many people will experience symptoms such as numbness of the lower limbs, fractures, pain, and fatigue. These symptoms are called “biosis” by Chinese medicine.
Between the lumbar vertebrae is a “spring sheet” called an intervertebral disc. It is soft and is surrounded by a fibrous ring, which can bend the spine.
If the distal end is in an incorrect posture and is often compressed or stretched, the fiber loops outside the “spring sheet” may rupture, and the contents inside will bulge, hit the nerves, cause pain in the waist and legs, and numbness, that is,Lumbar disc herniation.
It is often said that sitting down and resting is considered a kind of rest, but it is an exception for the lumbar spine.
When a person is lying flat, the pressure on the lumbar intervertebral disc is the smallest; when standing, the weight of the head, torso, and upper limbs is finally transmitted to the arch of the foot; when the forward leaning position, the weight of the head, torso, and upper limbs is concentrated on the lumbar spine, onlyThis is a solitary support point, at which time the lumbar disc is under the greatest pressure.
Therefore, long-term desk work or incorrect sitting posture can easily cause soreness and pain in the waist muscles.
Nowadays, the most pleasant thing for young people’s job opportunities after work is to play with a mobile phone and read a book on a semi-bed or sofa.
However, in the semi-recumbent position, the lumbar vertebra will lack the sufficient support, resulting in the distortion of the twisted arc, which will increase the gravity of the disc and cause the disc to protrude.
The lumbar vertebra has a normal physiological curvature. Under normal circumstances, the stress points of the lumbar vertebra are generally at the waist 4, 5, and 1 position.
In the semi-recumbent position, the back waist is suspended, the lumbar spine is in a folded state, and there is no support. The weight of the upper body is fully pressed to the lumbar spine.
In the shortest time, the muscles and ligaments in the lower back will support the lumbar spine, but the muscles and ligaments in the semi-recumbent position are in a changed state and lose the fixed function of reduction.Intervertebral disc bulging.
Spinal diseases are mostly caused by the accumulation of bad habits that have been inadvertent for many years. The following situations should be avoided: First, bending down to move heavy objects, causing the lumbar spine to be “injured.”
The correct posture is to squat down to hold the item and then gradually expand.
The second is to lie in the sofa and lean on it, which is the so-called “sofa potato”, which easily deforms the lumbar spine.
Three is sedentary.
People at old gatherings and those who need to work at their desks should stand up and walk for an hour or two.
When sitting, the line of gravity between the head and the lumbar spine should be perpendicular to the ground, and the waist should be supported.
A good cushion should protrude in the middle, have an arc transition from top to bottom, and have a certain hardness.
When there is no cushion, the seat should be filled with the hips to make the lumbar spine resistant.
