The invention relates to medicine, in particular to reflexology, and can be used in the conservative treatment of hernias of intervertebral discs (IVD).

Known methods of conservative treatment of hernias MTD, using anti-inflammatory drugs, analgesics, therapeutic blockade, physiotherapy, kinesitherapy, massage, manual therapy, lazarote the Russian Federation No. 2078596 "Method of laser therapy pain of musculoskeletal system"; Pat. Of the Russian Federation No. 2190384 "a Method for the treatment of hernias MTD"; Mazaltov H. A. and others "Treatment of hernias MTD in the lumbar spine," journal of traumatology and orthopedics, M., No. 3, 1997; Volchkov Century A. and others, "long-term results of treatment for low back pain caused by herniated MTD, when using conductive blockades", SPb., Of Semey state medical University n.a. Acad. I. P. Pavlov, 1999).

Known treatment of diseases of the spine by the impact of acupuncture needles on biologically active points (BAP) tonic, local and segmental actions (I. H. Samosyuk and B. N., Lysenok. "Acupuncture encyclopedia", Kiev, Moscow, 1994, S. 435-438).

However, although there are many different ways to treat the number of people suffering from pain in the spine, not reduced. Prevalence among the population of the globe spinal diseases take the first place. Therefore, it remains an urgent task of developing new treatments for these diseases, in particular methods of treatment of hernias MTD.

The closest treatment to the claimed method is the treatment of spinal diseases the influence of acupuncture needles on corporal biologically active points tonic, local and segment method does not guarantee long-term remission and possible exceptions of surgical intervention in the treatment of herniated intervertebral disk.

The technical result of the claimed invention is to increase the duration of remission and exclusion of surgical intervention.

The technical result is achieved due to expansion as places of influence, which in the invention are not only corporeal biologically active points (BAP) tonic, local and segmental actions, but also areas of the periosteum of the vertebral bodies in the field of lokalizacji hernia and the projection area of the scalp, and factors, such as silver needle, pulsed alternating current and electromagnetic radiation of extremely high frequency (EHF EMR).

New in the claimed method is the following:

- impact on corporal biologically active points (BAP): a restorative BATH, segmental BAHT, the local BAT located in the area of the hernia MTD, areas of the periosteum of the vertebral bodies and the projection zones of the scalp;

- the impact of not only silver acupuncture needles, but also electromagnetic radiation (EMR) extremely high frequency range (UHF-band), variable pulsed electric current.

The expansion of the zones of influence (corporal BAHT, zone of the periosteum of the vertebral bodies in Oblasty on the affected area (local BAP, zone of the periosteum of the vertebral bodies in the affected area - the location of the hernia), but also by providing a positive impact on the parts of the pathological process, located in the cerebral cortex, through reflex effects through corporeal segmental BAHT, and through the zone of the scalp.

Expansion factors (silver needle, AC pulsed electric current, electromagnetic radiation of extremely high frequency) allowed to achieve the specified result is not due to a simple summation of positive effects on the body of each of them, but due to the mutual potentiation of their positive influences that led to the receipt of a new technical result, which was a significant increase in the duration of remission (up to 5 years or more) and the ability to do without surgical treatment of intervertebral hernias.

The method is as follows.

In each session, carry out impact silver acupuncture needles on corporal BAT: 2-4 tonic, 1-2 segmental and 2-5 local (zone localization hernia MTD).

Local effects operate through the introduction of silver needle electromagnetic radiation KRA is the area of the lesion (the location of the hernia MTD), the local impact of alternate through the session with impact silver needles on the projection area of the scalp. Sessions are conducted daily at the rate of 10-12 sessions lasting from 30 to 60 minutes. If necessary, repeat the treatment with an interval of 10 days.

The impact of millimeter electromagnetic EHF radiation is performed with the help of the generator of high-frequency signals G4-81, which emits a signal of electromagnetic radiation frequency to 5.6 GHz. Through high-frequency horn antenna system of the type Pb-35 electromagnetic wave is directed to the portion of the needle outside the patient's body, induces an EMF, which in turn generates the alternating currents in the conductor (the needle), located in the body of the patient.

The radiation source of the electromagnetic wave are placed in such a way as to ensure maximum reflection from the flat boundary line air-to-body." Radiant system provides vertical polarization, i.e., the direction vector of the electric component of the electromagnetic field EHF perpendicular to the interface, and the vector magnetic component of the electromagnetic field EHF lies in its plane.

Impact electrically snogo current bipolar orientation: voltages up to 12 V, the current strength of 10 to 500 µa, pulse duration 6 sec +, 2 sec, 2 sec pause.

The possibility of realization of the invention shown in the examples.
