73 patients with compression-ischemic myeloradiculopathy received treatment including infrared laser radiation on the paravertebral fields, motor points of the affected nerves and biologically active points Y63, Y67, YB34, YB42, YB43, E34, E42 (1.0-5.0 mW/cm2; 5 and 5000 Hz), electrostimulation of motor nerve points and innervated by them muscles by double square impulses with a fixed gap 5 ms. Impulse infrared laser therapy relieves pain syndrome, stimulates repair processes in the affected nerve structures. Further modified electric stimulation activates a regenerative growth of the nerve fibers, reinnervation of the limb muscles.
