Why is my head dizzy after the massage?

Question:

Hello. As prescribed by the doctor, I do massage in the physiotherapy department, as the massage therapist likes, after the massage I relax, but later or my head starts spinning, 9 sessions have already passed, but I can’t do it if dizzy? I have osteochondrosis, and according to MRI, there are hernias in the cervical spine. How to be treated now?

Answer:

Hello. The reason for such dizziness lies precisely in the presence of pathology of the cervical spine, there is a high probability of impaired blood flow through the arteries feeding the brain (vertebrates, rather Total).

The condition worsens in the acute period of the disease with severe pain syndrome and tension in the muscles of the neck and occiput. Massage for intervertebral hernias can be performed, but in a sparing mode. Rather, not a therapeutic massage, but a relaxing technique.

In addition to massaging the cervical spine, you can use acupuncture, manual techniques for removing muscle hypertonicity, magnetotherapy, electrophoresis with novocaine, diclofenac and hydrocortisone, paravertebral blockade.
