A 35-year-old man felt numb with his hands when he was playing in the bed, and he did not see any relief for a few days, so he went to the hospital for treatment. The diagnosis was shocking to everyone – the man’s cervical vertebrae had deteriorated to the age of 70 because of long hours of playing with a mobile phone! The expert bluntly said that he was also scared by the man’s cervical X-ray. The vertebral bodies in the 4th, 5th and 6th sections were deformed, the interval was narrowed, and there were obvious bone spurs, which had been pressed to the nerves and looked like more than 70. The old man has degenerated the cervical spine. This is not unrelated to his habit of playing mobile phones for a long time.
According to experts, although the cervical vertebra is only a short section in the entire spine, its importance is self-evident; and the cervical vertebrae is extremely flexible, so we can easily look around and make various subtle movements. In the 7-section cervical vertebrae, the first and second sections are responsible for the rotation of the head. Other actions such as raising the head, bowing the head, shaking the neck or not, are done in the following five cervical vertebrae.
According to the clinical consultation, the general neck 2-3 and neck 3-4 are damaged, and more related to trauma, such as various cervical spine injuries caused by car accident collision. The cervical spondylosis of the “low-headed family” who loves to play mobile phones often occurs in the following four cervical vertebrae, especially the neck 5-6 is most vulnerable.
It is worth noting that some people feel that the neck is uncomfortable, and they will choose the method of “shaking their neck around the circle” to relieve cervical discomfort. In fact, the structure of the cervical vertebra is complicated, so that it can not alleviate fatigue, but it is not conducive to the stability of the cervical vertebrae, and easily lead to dizziness, nausea, pain and other symptoms.
