A therapeutic intervention study was carried out in 20 patients aged 40 to 59 with herniated disk, assisted in the Rehabilitation Service of "Ramón López Peña" Teaching Polyclinic in Santiago de Cuba, from August, 2013 to January, 2014, aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of ozone therapy and magnetotherapy. Scales were applied for the pain, muscular force, articular degree and functional skills. The male sex (60.0 %), the 40-49 age group (45.0%), the lumbar region as anatomical localization (55.0 %), the lumbar effort (35.0 %) and the spondyloarthrosis (30.0 %) prevailed as most common personal pathological history. When concluding the treatment there was improvement in 85.0 % of those affected, which demonstrated that the combination of both therapies was effective to elevate their physical and functional skills
