Outpatient bioresonance treatment of gonarthrosis.
[Article in Russian]
Comparative effectiveness of gonarthrosis treatment with standard methods alone and in combination with bioresonance.
MATERIAL AND METHODS:
The trial entered 75 patients with verified osteoarthrosis of the knee joints (stage I-III by Y. Kellgren).
They were divided into two groups.
40 patients of group I received standard combined therapy with nonsteroid antiinflammatory drugs, reducers of trophic processes, physiotherapy.
35 patients of group 2 received the above standard therapy plus bioresonance treatment (BRT).
The treatment course in both the groups took 5-6 weeks.
There were no statistical differences between the groups in age, sex, duration and severity of the disease.
The response was assessed by changes in clinical and laboratory, arthrological and arthrosonographic parameters before the treatment and 3, 5-6 weeks, 12 months after it.
The response to treatment was significantly higher in group II (57.5 against 94%).
Symptoms of synovitis and tendenitis relieved more also in group 2 (32.5 against 75%).
Group 2 patients retained mild pain at rest for a year, while in group I pains intensified by month 6 after the treatment.
The addition of BRT to standard therapy of gonarthrosis potentiates anesthetic, antiinflammatory and antiexudative effects; prolongs therapeutic action. BRT was well tolerated. Side effects were absent.
