Background. Osteochondrosis of the lumbar spine and its neurological presentations is one of the most common diseases, which leads to disability and invalidity of people mainly at younger age. The purpose of the research: to study the value of the heat flux density (HFD) and the temperature of the human body surface in patients with neurological signs of lumbosacral osteochondrosis. Material and methods. 71 patients were examined (20 — with signs of lumboischialgia against the background of intervertebral disc herniation, 20 — with lumboischialgia against herniation of intervertebral discs in combination with vertebral instability in this area, 11 patients with vertebral canal stenosis, and 20 patients from the control group). Results. In the control group, moderate temperature and HFD parameters in the paravertebral zone were fixed. Patients with lumboischialgia without symptoms of instability had a parallel fluctuation of temperature and HFD on the pain side and low indicators on the intact side. With lumboischialgia, on the background of vertebral instability, the symptom of “scissors” on the pain side and the growth of both thermal indices on the intact side were positive. With stenosis of the vertebral canal, the temperature and HFD parameters on both sides decreased, but more intensively on the side of the pain. Conclusions. Simultaneous measurement of temperature and HFD parameters in patients with neurological signs of spinal osteochondrosis using a device constructed at the Institute of Thermoelectricity of the National Academy of Sciences and the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine is a highly informative diagnostic method.
