For testing of spinal nerves

Hardware-software solution for testing of spinal nerves and spinal circulatory disorders typically offered for manual therapists, osteopaths, specialists in applied kinesiology, vertebroneurology.

The purpose of diagnostic studies: 90% of the population have a manifestation of osteochondrosis, in connection with such a wide spread of the disease an urgent problem of medicine is diagnosis of the vertebral-motor segments. The ability to quickly and correctly determine the pathology of a particular segment of the spine leads to the timely appointment of adequate therapy.

Of relevance is the identification of chronic disorders of the spinal blood circulation, which remain hidden pathologies, with grave consequences for the patient.

Dynamic segmental diagnosis allows for a short period of time (about 30 minutes) to assess the functional status of spinal nerves and draw a conclusion about the presence of the corresponding intervertebral canals mechanical obstacles to the passage of the neurovascular bundle. Typically, such mechanical barriers are: first, the herniated disc (lateral herniation causing nerve pathology on his side, rear hernia violate the conductivity on both segmental nerves due to compression of epidural venous plexus), and, secondly, the walls of the spinal bones channels by displacing vertebrae.

Diagnostic procedure can be divided into several stages:

1. Active electrode set paravertebrally in the cutaneous segment (atlas of the electrode is installed on the screen);

2.Test starts automatically. Electric current irritates the nerve receptors in the skin and nervous afferent impulses along the nerve guides are in the appropriate segment of the spinal cord.

3. Changing the function of neurons is a reflex and electrophysiological properties of the skin area change.

4. Skin conductivity is measured continuously. Graph of this index is based on the screen.

5. Analysis of the results is carried out after the diagnosis.

Test results are displayed on the screen and Print (in the form of graphs, phantoms and the text of diagnostic findings).

The abnormal response may be two main types: first - irritation of the nerve (1.2, 3 degrees). Generally it occurs when friction between the shell of the nerve or at the initial stage of ischemia of the nerve. And the second type - a nerve hypofunction (1,2, 3 degrees). Basically it is due to compression of nerve fibers, as well as the final stage of ischemia of the nerve.

Diagnosis of typical violations of the spinal circulation: because almost half the population (52,8%) has a trunk (pausegmentarny) type of blood supply to the spinal cord, then there is only one artery (a.Adamkevicha) is below the level Th.2 or two arteries (a.Adamkevicha + a.Deprozh-Getterona or + upper additional artery), then any mechanical obstacle in the intervertebral canal, where this arteria is, causing circulatory disorders of the spinal cord.

Violation of the spinal circulation has a specific pattern of change of the autonomic regulation of skin segments, which allows to detect ischemia of the spinal cord even in the early stages. When such violations DSD-testing shows that the activity of the upper segmental level is normal, but lower - reduced to varying degrees (we see a reverse picture of the pathology of vertebral arteries).

DSD-testing of spinal nerves can detect abnormal vertebral-motor segment. The correct diagnosis results in the adequate treatment and prevent life-threatening complications of the above pathology.
