Low-energy wideband electromagnetic radiation and manual therapy in the treatment of neurological manifestations of spinal osteochondrosis.

[Article in Russian]

Afoshin SA, Gerasimenko MIu.


It is shown that the advanced technique of low-energy wideband electromagnetic radiation improves vascular tonicity and peripheral circulation while a modified technique of manual therapy facilitates movements in the affected part of the spine and reduces tonicity of the muscles involved in the pathological process.

Administration of ehf-therapy for rehabilitation of locomotor diseases.

[Article in Russian]

Miriutova NF, Bartfel’d NN, Kozhemiakin AM.


Noise EHF radiation under low-frequency (10 Hz) modulation both in monovariant and in combination with spinal tractions promotes regression of neuro-orthopedic disorders. Good effects were achieved due to improvement of zonal hemodynamics, conditions of functioning of the neuromuscular and locomotor system of the spine and limbs, favourable shifts in biochemical and autonomic status of patients with lumbar osteochondrosis and osteoarthrosis.

Millimeter waves in the treatment of neurological manifestations of vertebral osteochondrosis.

Miryutova NF, Levitskii EF, Kozhemyakin AM, Mavlyautdinova IM.

Research Institute of Balneology and Physiotherapy, Moscow, Russia.

A new millimeter-wave therapeutic technique, which combines pulsed electromagnetic radiation with noise, was developed. This technique produces analgesic and trophic effects, and it also produces an effect on the functional activity of electrically excitable regions of nerve fibers. It can therefore be employed for treating affected nerves and muscles. Hence, it may broaden the range of optimal combinations of biotropic parameters of millimeter-wave methods used in neurological practice.

A “travelling” low-frequency impulse magnetic field in the treatment of patients with lumbar osteochondrosis.

[Article in Russian]

Mitbreit IM, Savchenko AG, Volkova LP, Berlin IuV.

A trial of travelling impulse low-frequency magnetic field generated by Alimp-1 apparatus has been performed in 120 patients with lumbar osteochondrosis. Clinical and laboratory assessment of the therapeutic effect showed improvement in 78.6% of those treated. The response can be attributed to the simultaneous action of numerous inductors solenoids covering a large area. This fact is essential in advanced disease.

Use of a low-frequency magnetic field in the combined treatment of middle-aged and elderly patients with ischemic heart disease and osteochondrosis of the cervico-thoracic spine.

[Article in Russian]

Sorokina EI, Podvigina IP, Selishchev GS, Krylova GV.

The study performed by the authors into the effect of low-frequency magnetic field on coronary heart disease, cervical and thoracic osteochondrosis arising in senile and presenile patients showed the treatment to promote improvement of the heart autonomic regulation and attenuation of ischemic and vertebrogenic pain, to augment response to antiarrhythmic treatment in coronary patients with extrasystoles, to compensate for negatively inotropic effect of propranolol hydrochloride, to increase exercise tolerance.

Experience in using sapropel mud in combination with a magnetic field in treating cervical osteochondrosis.

[Article in Russian]

Samutin NM.

Patients with cervical osteochondrosis were successfully treated with Deshembinskoe Lake [correction of Deshembinskaya] sapropel mud in combination with exposure to magnetic field. The details of this treatment regimen are described. Combination of pelotherapy with effects of the magnetic field proved beneficial for patients with cervical osteochondrosis.

The laser-magnetic phoresis of ascorbic in the combined health-resort therapy of osteoarthrosis patients

[Article in Russian]

Ibadova GD, Khamrakulova VV, Lopatinskii VV.

In vitro experiments demonstrate stability of ascorbic acid pH solution and a 1.5-fold increase in ascorbic acid mass-transfer through semipermeable membranes in exposure to laser radiation and magnetic field generated by the device Uzor. Bioavailability of ascorbic acid was proved by adaptogenic and antioxidant effects of laser-magnetophoresis of 2% ascorbic acid solution applied to the affected joints in 79 patients with osteochondrosis. The above laser-magnetophoresis compared to reflex-segmental technique of laser-magnetotherapy is more effective and safe as to balneopathological reactions.

The effect of combined treatment with the use of magnetotherapy on the systemic hemodynamics of patients with ischemic heart disease and spinal osteochondrosis.

[Article in Russian]

Dudchenko MA, Vesel’skii ISh, Shtompel’ VIu.

The authors examined 66 patients with ischemic heart disease and concomitant cervico-thoracic osteochondrosis and 22 patients without osteochondrosis. Differences were revealed in values of the systemic hemodynamics with prevalence of the hypokinetic type in patients with combined pathology. Inclusion of magnetotherapy in the treatment complex of patients with ischemic heart disease and osteochondrosis favours clinical improvement, normalization of indices of central and regional blood circulation.
