Diseases of the musculoskeletal system are the scourge of modern society, paid people for urbanization, malnutrition, inadequate physical activity, prolonged violation poses, etc.
Despite poly etiology, diseases of joints and spine are, in essence, wear and destruction of cartilage surfaces lining the joints, and limiting the selection of synovial fluid, which provides free and smooth motion.
Because joint damage is a chronic, progradient process, they require frequent and prolonged use of anti-inflammatory, analgesic, nonsteroidal chemicals that give a temporary effect, have contraindications and side effects.
With prolonged use of drugs (prevention, treatment and rehabilitation) in articular diseases of the attention of doctors are now often drawn to the biologically active additives (BAA) - Natural natural remedies that are reliable, safe and highly effective drugs, made from the body of related substances. In its orthopedic, trauma and neurological practice outpatients, we used the composition of multi-domestic (Tomsk) product company ARTLIFE Joint Flex.
This nourishing, anti-inflammatory complex for the osteo-articular system, effective in inflammatory processes in joints, muscles, ligaments. As a result vosalitelnyh, as well as degenerative, traumatic, or age processes in the body breaks down food and the circulation of the locomotor apparatus, formed by an autoimmune reaction, violated the synthesis of collagen and elastin, necessary to restore the cartilage surfaces.
The composition of dietary supplements Joint Flex is a complex glikozamin mucopolysaccharides and chondroitin sulfate, which are components of healthy cartilage and joints, and a well balanced formula of calcium and plant components.
During 2000, 168 patients with arthrosis of the joints, mainly the lower limbs, after the main anti-inflammatory treatment (1-2 weeks) received Joint Flex 1 tablet 2 times a day with meals for 2-3 months. It was noted that this group of patients with functional recovery of the joints, increase mobility occurred in earlier periods. In addition, patients had a significant analgesic effect, which occurs on average in the second week of early relapse.
In neurological practice, Joint Flex is used by patients with various manifestations of osteochondrosis. The spine is the pillar of the human body, and he first pays for bipedalism. If you constantly support the existing loads daily food joints of the spine is a vital necessity, because the age is increasing degenerative and dystrophic changes of the spine.
Joint Flex applied neurological patients (78 men) with reflex and radicular syndromes of the cervico-thoracic and lumbosacral levels, from the acute period.
Clinically, reduction of pain syndrome occurs due to decrease inflammation in the tissues and removing edema. This is observed during the first week, complete relief of pain occurs within 10-17 days, although the reception Joint Flex should be extended to 3 months.
Subsequent follow-up of patients revealed that for the annual period of exacerbation of the disease is not observed.
This gives grounds to use the drug in treatment of acute manifestations of osteochondrosis, as well as for the prevention of exacerbations.
It should be said that we need long-term use Joint Flex (1 tablet 2 times a day for at least 3 months). This course is repeated 2-3 times a year, can be combined with massage. Contraindications for the drug were noted.
