We describe our preliminary experience in treating degenerative arthrosis of the spine in elderly patients administering oxygen-ozone therapy associated with magnetic bioresonance. From April 2005 to November 2006 we selected 490 patients with CT and/or MR evidence of spondyloarthrotic disc degeneration of the lumbar spine. All patients had been treated by CT-guided intraformaminal oxygen-ozone injection as the first therapy followed by another four weekly outpatient paravertebral infiltrations. All patients were then offered the association of magnetic bioresonance sessions in the month after the last outpatient infiltration. The patients who agreed to supplementary bioresonance (196 – group A) were clinically reassessed three months after the last treatment session. The patients who opted for oxygen-ozone therapy alone (294 – group B) had a clinical follow-up visit six months after the end of treatment. The good results obtained by the association of oxygen-ozone therapy with magnetic bioresonance show that these two methods constitute an ideal treatment free from side-effects for patients with degenerative disease of the spine.
