Application of electrophoresis of chlorine in the treatment of plantar fasciitis (prominent heel).


Aim: to determine the effectiveness of electrophoresis of chlorine in the treatment of patients with plantar fasciitis. Material and methods. Survey and treatment of 40 patients in out-patient treatment at a private medical clinic OOO «ЛЭЙТОНС» ("LEYTONS, LLC") of 45-65 years with "heel spur" (4 men and 36 women). Age of the disease varied from 6 months to several years. All patients' diagnosis was confirmed radiographically. Before and after the treatment there were tests: Visual analogue scale (VAS) (scale from 0 to 100 points) and dynamic test WAM, defines psychological component of pathology. Results: patients were divided into 3 groups according to type of therapy. In 1-St group was held on the heels of hydrocortisone phonophoresis, in the 2nd group of shock wave therapy; in 3rd group held electrophoresis 5% solution of calcium chloride on the heel with the cathode. In the 1st group pain after the treatment group stopped at 80% of the patients; in the group 2, with 83%; in the group 377% of the patients. Conclusion. Our study showed that the chlorine electrophoresis in patients with plantar fasciitis can be a choice in complex rehabilitation. Identification of adverse effects of therapy confirms the need for an integrated approach to treating patients with this pathology.

Aim. The authors described a comprehensive program of frozen shoulder treatment, including extracorporeal shock wave therapy and pelotherapy. Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of the inclusion of extracorporeal shock wave therapy and pelotherapy in rehabilitation of patients with degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Materials and Methods: there had been examined 120 patients during the study. Results: The result of the application of complex physiotherapy normalized indicators of metabolic and electrolyte imbalances that are important in the formation of a therapeutic effect. Conclusion: The application of extracorporeal shock wave therapy and in combination with pelotherapy in patients with scapula-humeral periarthritis is the elimination of metabolic and electrolyte imbalance, which is important in degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system

Shock-wave therapy in scapularhumeral periarthritis


The aim of the present study was to determine the effectiveness of extracorporeal shock wave therapy in treating shoulder-scapular periarthritis. Material and methods. Survey and treatment of 30 patients of 45-67 years old with the diagnosis: shoulder periarthritis (7 women and 23 men). Age of the disease ranged from 1 month to 5 years. All patients were conducted x-ray examination of the cervical spine and the shoulder joint (radiography and/or MRI). To determine the pain activity the Visual analogue scale was used, Dowborn's test, test WAM. Results. The characteristic feature of the shoulder periarthritis is positive Dowborn's symptom: when rotating the shoulder inside (internal rotation) and the side of her moves up to 450-900 there was a pain in the shoulder joint (100% of patients). Conclusion. The appointment of a medical course of ESWT enhances functionality and adaptive responses in patients with shoulder-dorsal periartritom, and may be the method of choice of tactics therapy treatment of patients of this profile. The shock wave therapy is delayed effect. All patients received the ESWT, observed devolution of pain, to a minimum of 6 months to recommend re courses of therapy with a frequency of no more than 2 times a year.
