[Value of manual therapy in the complex treatment of patients with neurologic manifestations of cervical osteochondrosis]
The authors propose a method for combined treatment of patients with varying neurologic syndromes of cervical osteochondrosis which includes manual therapy, traction of the cervical portion of the vertebral column and some physiotherapeutic procedures (hydrocortisone phonophoresis and various baths). The use of drugs was limited. The above treatment was given to 330 patients with reflectory and radicular syndromes of cervical osteochondrosis. The results of the treatment proved significantly better as against those observed in patients receiving conventional treatment.
