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

Author information

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.
