Are physical exercises for neurasthenia effective?

Physical exercise should be said to be the nemesis of neurasthenia. Few people who exercise actively and persistently have this disease, and they have never suffered from insomnia, dizziness, and memory loss.

Although there are such good results, many neurasthenia patients do not take action, because the vast majority of patients are people who have no exercise habits, and they are often restricted by the mental and psychological factors caused by the disease.

This requires unremitting persuasion and encouragement from doctors, family members, and friends to make it possible to carry out physical therapy seriously and continuously. Neurasthenia is related to mental burden and excessive mental work, but it is also closely related to a lack of physical activity adjustments.

Mainly manifested as insomnia, mental fatigue, suspiciousness, and depression, etc., usually low work efficiency, lack of concentration, and memory loss. Due to poor sleep quality, physical fatigue, and loss of appetite, the mind and body suffer long-term torture. Some rely on sedative drugs for life, and they lose their effect after a long time, leaving patients physically and mentally exhausted.

The drug treatment of neurasthenia is not as good as sports treatment. The drugs are currently only symptomatic treatment and will relapse, and systematic physical activity can completely cure the neurasthenia. Therefore, patients should use a variety of physical activities to perform physical therapy for their symptoms.

1. Running, skipping, climbing, swimming, boating and other activities have good effects on insomnia, because these exercises have a great impact on the whole body and can consume a certain amount of physical strength, but they can also increase physical strength. Fatigue after exercise is conducive to sleep. The old saying goes: Those who are tired of form are happy. “When the body is tired, the spirit will be relaxed and happy, thereby regulating the excitement inhibition state of the brain, and get a stable sleep.

2. Table tennis, basketball, badminton, tennis, croquet, and other ball sports are competitive, which can invigorate the spirit, focus and enhance self-confidence, and change the pathological mental state.

3. Tai Chi, bare-hand exercises, and walking are rhythmic, gentle exercises, which help regulate the excitement and inhibition of the cerebral cortex, improve mood, and enhance physical strength, especially in a fresh, green, and beautiful environment. Can make people feel refreshed and optimistic. “He who enjoys his god, forgets his form”, the person’s spirit will be happy, the body will not feel tired, work and life will be more powerful, so as to improve the symptoms of fatigue.

Although physical activity can effectively treat neurasthenia, it is not easy for patients to apply it seriously and continuously. Therefore, relatives and friends of patients should tirelessly supervise, guide, help, and practice for a period of time so that they can consciously participate in sports activities in order to produce good therapeutic effects.

When the patient is passionate and obsessed with a sport, the neurasthenia will be driven out unknowingly.

Most patients with neurasthenia rely on drugs for a long time. Although the drugs are not effective, they still follow and rely on them. Many people are addicted. But there is no such kind of special medicine in the world today, so doctors, relatives, and friends should encourage and support physical therapy to get it out of medicine and return to normal life as soon as possible.

Although they are all neurasthenia, due to differences in age, physical condition, and the presence or absence of other diseases, each person should be different in the size and content of the exercise. You should choose the appropriate exercise and the appropriate amount of exercise according to the actual situation. . Generally, exercise for about 1 hour in the morning, and 1 to 1.5 hours in the afternoon. Should not participate in any sports activities at night.

Why do some people have a gait similar to that of a duck?

Some teenagers sway their bodies to one side while walking, and others sway to both sides, with a difficult gait similar to duck walking. This is often a patient suffering from congenital dislocation of the hip.

This disease is divided into the unilateral dislocation of the hip and bilateral dislocation of the hip, and the incidence of unilateral is higher than that of bilateral. In unilateral cases, the dislocation of the femoral head moves upward, which shortens the affected limb significantly, so the body is swayed to one side. In the case of dislocation of the hips, the femoral heads on both sides have lost the bony fulcrum, and the body has to twist the waist to sway to both sides when walking, so it is called the duck walking gait.

Although the cause of this limb disease is a congenital cause, if it can be detected in time in infancy, a good opportunity for treatment can be obtained without causing lifelong disability. Therefore, in addition to obstetricians should have knowledge in this area and paying attention to examinations, parents should also master common sense in this area, pay attention to observation, and go to the hospital for examination in time if suspicious is found in order to get early treatment.

How can we find it early? Generally speaking, children with unilateral hip dislocation have different lengths of lower limbs, and there is a great difference in thickness. The inner thigh of the affected limb has increased wrinkles, the size of the hips on both sides is asymmetrical, the hip muscles on the healthy side are plump and smooth, and the wrinkles of the hip muscles on the affected side are excessive and deepened. In addition, bony bulges on the affected hip can also be felt.

In children with bilateral hip dislocation, the width of the hips is wider than that of ordinary babies. When standing, the waist is obviously lordotic, and the hips are obviously rearward. When parents practice standing with their children’s armpits, their legs often become weak and their supportability is poor. Some are not able to stand and move when they are nearly one year old.

If you have the above signs, you should go to the hospital for examination in time, and take X-rays to confirm the diagnosis. The therapeutic effect of congenital dislocation of the hip has a lot to do with the timing of treatment. The best timing is within 1 year of age. The curative effect is good, reaching more than 95%. If obstetricians in Chinese hospitals can systematically master the knowledge of the disease and perform a routine examination after the baby is born, the disabled will be basically eliminated.

Of course, although children under 3 years old can achieve better results, it is far not as good as those under 1 year old. Children after 3 years old not only have complicated treatment methods but also have a poor curative effect. After 10 years old, the hip joint is not easy to reposition, and orthopedic surgery is needed to remedy it. Although it can achieve certain results, it is difficult to achieve normal hip joint function, and it is often disabled.

The treatment method is the manual reduction or surgical osteotomy. However, both the reduction and operation must be fixed with plaster or stent for several months to more than one year. This kind of long-term fixation prevents the lower limbs of the child from moving, although it is beneficial to the treatment of hip diseases, for the whole body, the resistance is reduced, and it is prone to upper respiratory tract infection, pneumonia, indigestion, bone decalcification, and urinary system Infection and other comorbidities, so we must pay attention to the family care of children and actively participate in sports activities.

Care should be taken to keep the indoor air fresh and moist. Let the children expose themselves to the sun for half an hour to one hour a day, strengthen nutrition, take a bath frequently, change diapers frequently, and keep the anus and perineum clean.

Special attention should be paid to sports, which can not only maintain physical health, reduce various complications of the cast fixation period, but also adjust the mental state of children.

Sports activities should be carried out according to the age characteristics of the child. Children under one year of age can do some passive exercises, such as holding both hands for raising, chest expansion, punching, and breathing can be enhanced by making laughter. For larger ones, some toys can be used to induce exercise, such as tapping balloons with your hands, drumming, and blowing a blower with your mouth to enhance breathing exercises. Older children can do upper limb gymnastics after surgery.

In short, try to influence and promote the health of the whole body through local exercise.
