Abstract

The impact of therapeutic Akhtala muds and electromagnetic radiation of millimeter range on biochemical indices in patients with post discectomy syndrome has been investigated. The research showed that medical rehabilitation with Akhtala medical muds and electromagnetic radiation of millimeter range stimulates sympathetic-adrenal system, adrenocorticotrophic function of the hypophysis and glucocorticoid function of adrenal cortex, induces a weakening/removal of an inflammatory process in the operated area, enhances antioxidant defense of the organism, oppresses calcium metabolism and peroxide oxidation of lipids. The noted positive process was manifested in the increase up to upper limit of the norm of daily excretion of adrenalin and noradrenalin, the content of adrenocorticotrophic hormone and cortisol in blood plasma and in the decrease of the amount of malonic dialdehyde in it, also in the increase of antioxidative activity of blood plasma, in the decrease of the content of “?”-reactive protein, haptoglobin, seroglicoids, common and ionic calcium in blood serum.
