Segmentary (metameric) treatment points
A segment (metamere) of the spinal cord is its area along the long axis consisting of front and back horn with two pairs of posteÂrior (sensitive) and anterior (motor) radices. They distinguish 8 cervical segments (C1-C8), 12 thoracic (Th1-Th12), 5 lumbar (L1-L5), 5 sacral (S1-S5) and 1 coccygeal (Co1).
Sensitive and motor radices unite and leave the spine as right and left spinal nerves at the level of definite vertebra, forming nerÂvous plexi and nerves (see p.6)
Right and left spinal nerves, giving branches on their way, form local sin zones (dermatomeres), muscular communities (myomeres), etc., and round the body surface
Usually each metamere is innerved from basic and two neighboring - upper and lower segments (see below "palm rule", Chapter 3, point 13).
Situation of spinal nervous ganglia and vegetative nervous system ganglia also submits to the law of metamerism
Yet in 1906M.N. Lapitsky showed the existence of connections between definite skin zones and certain visceral organs and tisÂsues having metameric character.
Influence to the skin of a definite body part with apparatus imÂpulses is accompanied by functional changes in organs and tisÂsues belonging to the same segment (metamere) as the irritated skin surface. Under the influence of the apparatus signal changes of microcirculation, cells, tissues and organs metabolism is observed, forming of biologically active substances is observed (see table 1) which enables normalization of motor, secretory, immune (see table 2) and other activities of visceral organs and parts of body of the organism having metameric junctions with skin zones.
Segmentary (metameric) zones may be included into the scheme of treatment according to indications in any diseases and pathologic conditions for enhancing DENAS therapy effect.
The following zones are addressed as segmentary (metameric).
Metamerism zones (segmentary reflexogenous). Location of these zones is given in the instructions for apparatus use. Dozed and constant modes should be alternated.
Segmentary ring zone at the level of presented complain. ApÂparatus work begins from spinous processes of the vertebrae corresponding to the level of organ "presenting a complain" locaÂtion. Apparatus electrodes are moved step by step (in dozed or constant mode) or slid (in constant mode) around the body at a speed of 1 cm per second. The width of apparatus treated skin band must correspond to the width of one patient's palm. ReachÂing the direct projection of the sick organ, this projection is treated (see above), then motion is performed towards spinous processÂes of the vertebrae, closing the circle.
Dosed and constant modes should be combined.
"Neck ring" zone. This is a skin area in the shape of a ring around the neck at the level of 2nd - 6th cervical vertebrae, the width of which equals the width of one patient's palm
The working apparatus electrodes are placed in the region of spinous processes of the spine on one side of the neck. Treatment is performed in constant mode. The apparatus is either moved step by step consecutively (10 seconds per point) around the neck up to spinous processes of the same vertebrae at the opposite side of the neck or slid around the neck at a speed of approximately 1 cm per second, first to one side, then to the opposite one, so that an imagined ring is made. According to indications, the ring may be closed 2 to 5 times.
Large nervous trunks and nodes of vegetative nervous system, blood vessels and lymphatic nodes are located in treatment zone. This zone is treated in brain pathology, auricular apparatus pathology, vision lesions, nasopharyngeal diseases and stomatologic problems.
Collar zone. The upper border of this zone passes along the back surface of the neck at the level of the spinous process of the 2nd cervical vertebra. The lower border is an imagined horizontal line passed at the level of the spines of the scapulae, starts and finishes in epibrachial region. Lateral borders are lateral sides of the cervical triangle and upper edges of trapezoid muscles on both sides fig. p.1).
Apparatus treatment of this zone leads to a change of vegetaÂtive nervous system functional state. Besides metameric reactions, a general adaptive reaction always arises during apparatus treatÂment of this zone which permits the use of collar zone in head vessels diseases, chronic inflammatory processes in the region of head and neck, in neuroses and arterial pressure level changes of various origin.
Attention! During collar zone treatment the following items must be taken into consideration:
- indication must be present;
- in diseases accompanied by arterial (blood) pressure inÂ
crease the apparatus should be always moved along the zone only
from top to bottom;
- in diseases accompanied by arterial (blood) pressure deÂ
crease and in shock conditions the apparatus should be always
moved along the zone only from bottom to top;
â€” treatment in maximal energetic level always increases the arterial pressure.
Taking thus into consideration, in presence of complains and Indications, the apparatus is always moved step by step or slid in constant mode at a speed of 1 cm per second.
Lumbosacral zone. Located on the back surface of the body. The upper border of the zone is located at the level of the twelfth libs, the lower border â€” at the level of sacrum transition into the coccyx (see fig. p.2)
Apparatus treatment of this zone exercises influence on blood supply and trophic of the small pelvis organs and lower extremiÂties. Treatment of lumbosacral zone is indicated in diseases of the lower extremities, the intestine, enuresis, functional diseases of male genital sphere (impotency), functional and inflammatory diseases of female genitals, in secondary sterility, in rehabilitation period after diseases and injuries of the spinal cord.
Except exact metameric reactions, treatment of lumbosacral zone causes complicated universal reactions expressing in tonic effect on the whole organism, sleeping and appetite improvement, general tonus increase.
Dozed and constant modes should be combined.

Principles of DENAS THERAPY
NEWS and PUBLICITY
Choosing a thing (irrespective of its applicability), the consumer first of all pays attention for two moments is a convenience and safety. In this device is both that and another, and these qualities long to search it is not necessary: they are dictated by principles of dynamic electro-neuro-stimulation.
This mode is not solving at rendering the urgent help, but is absolutely necessary for carrying out of posttraumatic rehabilitation. Impulses DENS included in this mode, gradually increase on capacity. It promotes effective reduction of muscles, and pauses between impulses provide to a muscle high-grade restoration after reduction.
In favorable for àëëåðãîáîëüíûõ the winter period it is necessary to spend preventive maintenance. For this purpose there is a method specific therapy - some kind of vaccination. In small concentration "guilty" allergen which is gradually entered to the patient gets divorced. Concentration is gradually increased, and at an organism stability to allergens which is caused by development of so-called blocking antibodies is developed. When there comes flowering, symptoms of an allergy are shown to a lesser degree, and even at all disappear. It is considered, that after 3-5 years preventive specific therapy there can come proof long remission. At pollinous its efficiency reaches 90 %.
