Cervical Radiculopaties: Diagnostic and Treatment Possibilities
Keywords:cervical radiculopathies, lornoxicam, treatment
The study of the effectiveness of different schemes of using lornoxicam, tolperisone, gabapentin for the treatment of acute pain syndrome in 121 patients with cervical radiculopathy was performed.
It was shown, that lornoxicam significantly reduces the severity of pain syndrome in patients with dominance of both nociceptive and neuropathic pain components. Thus, the combined use of lornoxicam and tolperisone was more effective in patients without neuropathic pain, and the combined use of lornoxicam and gabapentin — for neuropathic pain in patients with cervical radiculopathy (compared to lornoxicam monotherapy).
