[Treatment of the reflex syndromes of lumbar osteochondrosis at a central district hospital]
Experience is reported of treatment of patients presenting with reflex lumbar osteochondrosis syndromes (n = 136) by manual therapy and acupuncture. The majority of patients derived apparent benefit from the treatment (n = 102), twenty-six in this patient population showed improvement, 8--no effect. Manual and acupuncture treatments allowed to shorten the time during which patients presenting with the above pathologies are incapacitated from working. Methods of sum and stimulant electroneuromyography constitute a useful addition to clinical findings permitting an objective assessment to be provided of the effectiveness of treatment of patients presenting with reflex syndromes of lumbar osteochondrosis.
