Osteoelectroacupuncture in the management of vertebrogenic pain syndromes in the lumbar region and lower extremities

By Lisenyuk VP; Yakupov RA
Address: Chair of Neuropathology and Reflexotherapy (Acupuncture), Kiev State School for Upgrading of Medical Skills, Ukraine.

The method for a deep electrical stimulation of the osteofibrous formations involved in a dystrophic process which can be identified according to the criterion of a palpable painfulness or by means of thermography of the projection of local hyperthermia sites is described.

An evaluation of the results of the management of vertebrogenic lumbalgia and lumbo-ischialgia by using the proposed method of osteo-electroacupuncture (stimulation by the bipolar asymmetric impulses, O.I msec duration, 5-IO Hz frequency, and up to 200 microA current intensity) has revealed a statistically significant curtailment of the treatment terms and a fewer number of the recurrences when compared to the standard schemes.
