When a doctor diagnoses - cervical osteochondrosis, the symptoms of treatment are inextricably linked. This is because this disease is considered complex and multi-level, this or that symptom will tell not only about the stage of the disease, but also what exactly it extends to, which vital areas of the body were affected.
A person who has experienced the symptoms of osteochondrosis of the neck in the form of pain and stiffness of movements can quickly relieve their condition. Pain relievers must be taken. Ointments will have an effective effect, they are economical in spending. Taking painkillers, you must observe the dosage and contraindications.
After relieving the patient's condition, he should consult a doctor. We must not forget that analgesics can only mask the symptoms, but not get rid of the disease. Separately, it should be noted that for pains that are reflected from the neck to the back, arms and legs, ointments are applied exclusively to the neck. But despite the fact that a person did not go to a doctor, he cannot know the exact diagnosis. And he tries to "treat" everything at once, successfully achieving only an allergic effect.
Treatment is prescribed only after a complete examination and diagnosis. It is aimed at improving blood circulation in the affected areas, relieving swelling and tension, and getting rid of pain. For this, analgesics are used in the form of ointments or injections (antispasmodics).

Physiotherapy procedures will help relieve pain and relieve the patient's condition. In this disease, electrophoresis, paraffin and water procedures, magnetotherapy, ultrasound and ultraviolet irradiation are successfully used. Massage (not strong) and remedial gymnastics (regular) have proven themselves well. Wearing special medical collars will help support your head and neck.
An alternative, and in other cases an addition to treatment, is special gymnastics.
It is necessary to closely monitor the body's allergic reactions to the ingredients used and remember that these remedies alleviate but do not cure the disease.
