Tremor is a fast, rhythmic movements of the limbs or trunk, caused by muscle contractions and associated with a time delay activity. Because of this implementation movement and preservation of the pose is due to the constant adjustment to some average value. When fatigue and strong emotions, and pathology of the nervous system tremor is greatly enhanced. The same happens during colds, vigorous exercise. Many pay attention to a greater intensity shake in the morning. Drinking coffee, strong tea often enhances shake. Alcohol reduces or suppressing the tremor in day of acceptance and enhances the next day.


Essential tremor is one of the types of tremor, a hereditary disease. In our time, he began to occur at any age. Its characteristic is that shake accompanies every purposeful movement (kinetic tremor), persisting when approaching the target (terminal tremor). Usually it is most pronounced in the hands, usually bilateral, although sometimes it is asymmetric. The attempt to suppress the growing writing jitter leads, as a rule, to the muscles of the hand and forearm. This letter is slowing down, the hand gets tired quickly, the movements are clumsy, especially when excited. However, many patients over a long period of time retain the ability to professional activities. However, as the progression of the disease partially or completely, this ability is lost, sometimes difficulties with self-service (receiving of liquid food, retention of glass fastening buttons and so on).


From disease Parkinson's essential tremor is different in three key criteria: essential tremor always increases with the Commission of movement (for example, to insert the thread a needle), and shake arising from disease , Parkinson's, most notably in the state of rest. Essential tremor is manifest one characteristic isolated symptom, disease Parkinson revealed a variety of symptoms (change of facial expression, a bent posture, the changing pattern of gait). Essential tremor is characteristic for all parts of the body, and when the disease Parkinson - only for hands. Almost half of all known cases of occurrence of essential tremor is the manifestation of genetic mutations. Typically, such cases are called familial tremor. Still not clear why tremor appears in people with pure-strain. Hand tremor in most patients appears earlier shake different localization and some remains the only symptom of the disease in period from a few months to many years. More often it occurs simultaneously in both hands, rarely begins to tremble one hand, usually right (left-handers - to-left). Head shake observed in a half of patients. Tremor facial muscles occurs very often. Many patients themselves say trembling lips, arising while smiling and talking. Light tremor language and age is very common. Tremor feet detected clinically 20% of patients. Thus, the most typical localization of tremor are the hands, head, facial muscles, voice and torso. The exact cause of essential tremor is not known but it is believed that it appears from the incorrect work of the cerebellum is one of the departments of a brain which is responsible for coordination of movements. The disease occurs as a result of violating the relationship between the cerebellum, the thalamus and the brain stem. Geneticists have identified two genes responsible for causing the disease. Often tremor occurs in older people as a manifestation of the natural aging process.


Essential tremor is not life threatening person, most people can lead a normal life and to perform normal daily activities. However, a very strong tremor may prevent to live and work full. Important the correct diagnosis. So, during differentiation with parkinsonism consider that muscle tone, usually not changed and only occasionally is slightly raised. Posture and gait in patients with hereditary tremor not changed. Trembling with these two diseases are also different in nature. If for essential tremor typically shake voltage and movements that accompanies each targeted action and increasing when approaching the goal, then for Parkinson disease is characterized by a shaky peace. Tremor may occur in response to various intoxication, for example, the toxicity of metals, in particular mercury, lead, manganese. Jitter is a very common symptom of various diseases.


Turning to the treatment, I want to say that in most cases it is quite effective is the use of various folk remedies. I recommend you start treatment with tansy.

Therefore, immediately after diagnosis is needed exercise, occupational therapy and diet. The main goal of physical treatment is relaxation of muscles and joints, reducing muscular atrophy induced movement disorders. With exercise, you must stretch the shortened muscles and increase joint mobility, to improve coordination, posture, and to increase the step when walking. In addition, physical therapy improves breathing, strengthen the voice and makes it more clear. Exercises to acquire all of the muscle groups and movements in all joints to ensure the widest range of motion. Each lesson is coached by a certain group of muscles, but most of these exercises should be aimed at training those movements, which help to overcome the disease caused by the violation of physical activity. Any movement exercises are easier in terms of rhythmic mode, habitual, or pleasant for the person, for one is the rhythm of the melody is another simple account either out loud, or "in the mind". To get rid of hand tremor help and special exercises, which not only trains the muscles and improves blood flow. You just need to compress and decompress hand and massaging fingers. You can simply buy a ball-hedgehog and train in any place and at any time. The most important thing in this case is a constant practice. It is important to also develop fine motor skills. This contributes to working with small items: beads, wood carvings, miniature painting, knitting. In the treatment of tremor of the hands and help of special exercises. The index finger should try to get the base of the thumb, with the thumb to hold the index finger. Then the little finger, middle and big fingers together, with the index and middle finger should be straight. Regularly and often to do such a simple exercise. Give examples of the implementation of a number of therapeutic exercises. So, for the improvement of motion in knee joints, sitting on a chair, straighten one leg at the knee, then return to starting position. Repeat for each leg of 10. Sitting on the chair lift one leg and put it on a small chair (stool). Then put your hand on the knee is straightened legs and stretch forward. You should feel a slight tightening of the muscles of the back surface of the legs. Stay in this position, counting to 20. Then relax. Repeat 5 times. And to relieve tension and relaxation of muscles of the thigh and lower leg stand sideways to the back of the chair and lean on her hand. Put one foot forward at 50 cm and the other leave behind. Now bend forward leg at the knee and slowly lower yourself, carrying the weight of your body for an extended and bent at the knee of the leg. When fully "God bless" to put forward leg, try to feel its tension and muscle strain "left" rear legs. Remain in this position, counting to 20, then relax and return to its original position. Repeat 5 times (each leg). Exercise to strengthen your calf muscles: stay right, leaning his arms on the chair. Pripodnimaet on their toes. Repeat 10 times. The amplitude of fluctuations of hands will reduce special cargoes. There are several exercises that can train the muscles and reduce unpleasant effects of tremor on life. You can compress brush his fists in seconds - this will reduce the muscle contraction. If tremor feet it is important to determine the easy rhythm and tempo walk with walking. In this case it is not necessary, first, to hurry, and, secondly, to go slower than you can. Do not spare yourself, force yourself to go as far as possible and better. Watch your walk. You must overcome "shuffling" gait. It's enough to choose the right pace and rhythm. Let "shuffling" sounds you very annoying. Encourage noiseless tread. Doing exercises exercise therapy, give this issue a special attention. For balance while walking should be trained in special devices, which athletes are called "parallel bars", or, ideally, from a stick. All the difficulties accompanying the walk, especially on rough roads or on the stairs, must be overcome by re-training. At home, you should train your balance in the "off of view" (visual control). This can be done only if the apartment is specially fortified wall handrails (wooden or metal lath on the wall).


I want to note that often are effective courses of acupuncture in combination with a relaxing massage. Treatment of tremor of the hands has been very successful, and the use of hirudotherapy. Apitherapy offers for the treatment of tremor of the hands of the tincture on the dead bees, which increases blood flow. Can't ignore also the issue of the importance of nutrition. Food should be rich in proteins, minerals and vitamins, but remain low. The diet is varied and include more vegetables, salads and fruit. Fiber contained in vegetables, necessary for work of organs of digestion and will help avoid constipation, which with this disease are often a problem. From vegetables preference should be given carrots, beets, broccoli, spinach are good antioxidants. Portions should be small, but you should eat often, 5-6 times a day. In the daily menu should include a small amount of lean meat (chicken, rabbit meat, beef). We must also ensure that the body gets enough liquid. If the liquid is lost due salivation, it can contribute to constipation. To exclude all provoking a shiver factors. Especially, if not work. Because sometimes and tea in the morning will be a hard task. It is necessary to limit the consumption of chocolate, coffee and strong tea. Quitting Smoking and drinking alcohol, drugs. Alcohol causes dehydration of brain cells, which then die. Because of this, tremor hands when alcohol is only growing. To ensure a strong tremor is used and the method of fasting. In the process of medical starvation cells are updated, restores function bodies. After fasting takes a muscle spasm. Starvation causes the body to throw all forces on the restoration of the destroyed parts of the body.


I want to say that the disease is rarely takes malignant in nature. And treatment of diseases, the methods of official medicine recommend only in critical situations Must be very deliberate approach to medical treatment. It is known that some medications can cause tremor, and incorrect treatment regimen is to lead to the opposite effect. It is very important that a person suffering from essential tremor, actively cooperated with the doctor-neurologist, had informed him about the changes in their condition and clearly fulfilled the purpose for which he recommended and objectively help. As shown by clinical practice, if correctly chosen treatment of essential tremor and it's comprehensive, including both medicines and herbal medicine, and homeopathy, there are significant improvements: reduced tremor, patients feel more confident that they can take care of himself and do simple work. Noticed a curious fact, saying that in the families of patients with essential tremor is often observed, oddly enough, longevity and happiness. And patients themselves often are characterized by high mental abilities and achievements in various industrial and scientific activity. Older people should remember that if you start to disturb trembling in his hand, in his head, began to change handwriting appeared difficulty eating, especially liquid food when you want to hold a spoon, should immediately contact a doctor-neurologist. Because the sooner will be started treatment causes trembling in hands, the better will be its result.
