The aim: to analyze the clinical effect of MBST-exposure monotherapy, a magnetic resonance method, on the pain syndrome caused by degenerative dystrophic changes of vertebral column structures. Material and Methods. 132 patients both male and female with cervical and lumbar dorsopathy were enrolled into the study. Treatment course included 9 sessions of 60 min. daily. MRI-results of corresponding spine regions and visual analogue pain intensity scale were used as assessment tools for treatment efficiency before, immediately after, 3, 6 and 12 months after MBST-treatment. Results. The objective results of structural transformation of pathological formations in vertebral motional segments correlated with significant decrease of pain syndrome at all stages of control tests. Conclusion. MBST-exposure is an effective method of non-invasive, notouch monotherapy for patients with chronic dorsalgia caused by degenerative dorsopathy.
