Abstract

The authors treated with drugs and complex physical therapy 65 patients with occupational diseases of the extremities. According to the physiotherapeutic procedures, the patients were divided into five groups: 1s t - treated with galvanic baths; 2 n d - with galvanic baths and diadynamic current; 3 r d - with galvanic baths and short-wave therapy; 4t h - with galvanic baths and paraffin, and 5t h - with galvanic baths and high-voltage, low-frequency current. Patient's improvement was evaluated according to the reduction of subjective complaints such as shivering and pain as well as to a series of objective parameters such as muscle strength, skin temperature, time for skin temperature restoration, and peripheral blood flow. The subjective complaints were better influenced than the objective indices. The combination of galvanic baths with short-wave therapy exerted the best effect in the patients with occupational diseases of the extremities.


Keywords
