Abstract

In the last ten years the treatment of lumbar disk herniation is significantly diversified. Other pathologies of the posterior vertebral compartment, as facet joint arthritis and spinal canal stenosis can complicate clinical symptoms. Because of this complex clinical syndrome the ozonetherapy found many applications for its poor invasivity and low cost. Our clinical series of 96 patients, homogeneous for lumbar disk pathologies, age and sex, was divided in two treatment groups: GROUP A treated with 12 injections of O2-O3 gaseous mixture in paravertebral muscles, GROUP B treated with 12 injections of only medical oxygen. A reduction of subjective and objective parameters was observed in both groups. Excellent or good and fair results were observed in 86% of patients. On the other hand from our study arises a statistical evidence of a difference in evolution (time and intensity) of same clinical parameters between the two treated groups.
