Solar plexus. What do we know about him?
A cluster of nerve cells located in the abdominal cavity, outside the nervous system, has been called the solar plexus. Why such a name? Firstly, this "tangle" of cells can be compared with the sun of the human body, from which, like sunlight, streams of energy flow into all vital parts of the body. When a person sleeps, the energy distribution mechanism actively "works", distributes energy to those parts of the body where it is especially needed, thus correcting the imbalance that has developed over the day. Secondly, if a person is struck hard in this area of the body, he loses consciousness, in other words, the light "dims" before the person, and the light, respectively, is the sun. Here is a simple comparison, but it has a certain meaning.
Without going into medical or esoteric terminology, we can say simple and understandable for all languages, the following: the solar plexus is inextricably linked with the respiratory system, diaphragm, adrenal glands, spleen, liver, stomach, gall bladder. You can continue, but without it it is clear that this is a very valuable and important organ of the human body, and if you feel pain or even just discomfort in this area, you should immediately pay attention, since this can be a signal of serious problems withhealth.
So, there is no doubt about the importance of the solar plexus for the full functioning of the body, so it is not surprising that this organ is especially vulnerable. A blow to the solar plexus can lead to the most unfortunate consequences, such as rupture of the diaphragm, which can form a hernia, and can not be avoided without prompt intervention. If the blow is not particularly strong, then it also does not bode well: the contraction of the diaphragm displaces the lungs from the lungs, convulsions appear, breathing is disrupted and, as a result, the person loses consciousness. You need to know what happens to the body when a person gets hit in the solar plexus. To understand that the organism "beats alarm", it is possible, if:
- the victim can not speak;
- a pronounced sensation of severe pain in the abdomen;
- nausea and vomiting.
To help a person who has suffered a stroke in the solar plexus, you must first plant it, tilting it slightly forward, and preferably provide a support( this must be done only after a certain time, when the victim is already able to move).You should talk, calm, assert that the spasm will soon pass, and you can again normally breathe. If prerequisites for unconsciousness are noticed, immediately put on your side and maximally release the airways. Of course, you must immediately call the "ambulance"!
Strongly not: touch, massage, rub or otherwise disturb the abdominal area. Of course, in order to avoid danger, it is best to prevent it and protect the solar plexus from various kinds of blows. To do this, you need to know, and even better - to own at least elementary methods of protection, namely: to be able to get away from the impact and, if necessary, to strike a counterattack, or better - not one. Even if this is done at a level far from professionalism, it will confuse the attacker and give a chance to equalize the forces, at least.
So, now we know that the solar plexus, impact on which can be very dangerous for the human body, performs many functions. It is better to avoid mechanical injuries and strikes in this area, as convulsive spasms can block the breath of a person, which will lead to death. Of course, daily exercise can strengthen the solar plexus and the abdominal region, so it is better to at least occasionally perform certain exercises to strengthen this group of muscles!
