Resumen

BOCH VALDES, Fe; RABI MARTINEZ, María del Carmen; HERNANDEZ ARTEAGA, Manuel  y  GARCIA JACOMINO, José Carlos. Resultados obtenidos en pacientes con dolor sometidos a tratamiento. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2001, vol.17, n.2, pp.149-154. ISSN 0864-2125.

Pain has a biopsychosocial projection and many patients receive attention because of this symptom, which requires a multidimensional vision that gives rise to the multidisciplinary groups and to the Pain Clinic. The increase in drug toxicity and other invasive techniques that not always cause relief have promoted the use of natural and biologic therapies. In the present study, the results of natural and conventional treatments used for 5 years were collected. A total of 9 280 patients with pain were studied. Electroacupuncture, acupuncture, laser, transcutaneous nerve electric stimulation, phaciocybernetic therapy (PHACI), moxibustion, auricle therapy, psychologic techniques, homeopathy, massages, magnetotherapy and phytotherapy were applied. Variables of response to treatment were considered by visual analogue scale (VAS) at the 5th and 10 th application. It was observed that low back pain was more frequent and that electroacupuncture and acupuncture were the most effective techniques. The natural methods used were efficient, economical and useful to treat pain.
