Hemangioma of the spine: treatment with medicamentous and folk remedies

Hemangioma of the spine is a vascular benign tumor that can cause not only pain in that part of the spine where it is located, but also lead to a serious complication - a compression fracture.

Of course, to identify hemangioma and fracture should not be. Traumatic spine injury is likely only with the rapid growth of the neoplasm, which happens not often. But this does not mean that the treatment of hemangioma can be neglected. Consider how the official treatment of pathology is conducted and whether the patient's condition can be alleviated with the help of folk remedies.

Medical tactics and techniques of

It is best to treat the hemangioma of the spine in a neurologist or neurosurgeon if there is one in your latitudes. Immediately after the tumor is detected, dynamic observation is recommended - that is, you will undergo an X-ray or MRI of the spine at least once a year to determine if active growth of the hemangioma has begun. Treatment with medications during this period is shown only if you experience pain in the spine. To relieve pain, nonsteroidal drugs and analgesics are used in short courses.

  • Massage;
  • Physiotherapeutic treatment;

What physicians offer

The most common treatment for growing hemangioma today is puncture vertebroplasty. By minimally invasive intervention, the hemangioma area is filled with a special mixture containing barium, bone cement and titanium. The destruction of cells of the spinal hemangioma occurs during the solidification of cement. Puncture vertebroplasty allows not only to stop the growth of the tumor, but also to strengthen the body of the damaged vertebra.

Spinal hemagmyoma can be treated by several other methods. We list the most famous:

  • Sclerotherapy .The treatment is based on the fact that pure alcohol is injected directly into the tumor. Under the influence of alcohol, hemangioma cells are sclerosed - growth stops. The danger of sclerotherapy( alcoholization) of the hemangioma is the development of osteonecrosis of the vertebra, which can lead to fracture.
  • Radiation therapy for hemangioma .Treatment with high doses of radiation is quite effective, but it is rarely used because of poor patient tolerance. At a young age, radiation therapy is not applied.
  • Embolisation of .Directly into the vessels of the hemangioma is introduced a special solution, thrombosed vessels. After embolization around the site of thrombosed hemangioma, a network of small vessels grows, which is a complication of this method.
  • Radical surgical operation .It is used for patients of child age strictly according to indications. A possible complication of surgical removal of hemangioma is massive bleeding.

We are talking about folk methods

It would seem that treatment with folk remedies is effective for any ailments. The main thing is to correctly apply recipes that have come down to us from antiquity. However, in the case of detection of a hemangioma of the spine, most medical specialists believe that people's methods can not be used. This opinion is based on the fact that treatment in the home conditions provokes tumor growth, t. Many recipes use tonics.

Perhaps, of all the folk remedies, it is only the antitumor treatment that you previously agree with the attending physician.
