82 patients with traumas of peripheral nervous trunks (middle, ulnar, radial, tibular and tibial nerves) were investigated, including 44 persons with neuroapraxia of those trunks and 38 with axonotmesis. It was established that the patients with traumas of peripheral nervous trunks showed the presence of inflammatory process and sensitization of the body which was exposed in the reaction of precipitation at C-reactive protein with the increase of the content of serum glycoides and total nonspecific immunuglobulin E in blood serum. The investigated patients showed also decrease in nonspecific resistance of organism and change in immune status. All the above-referred shifts were more expressed at axonotmesis of peripheral nervous trunks. Rehabilitation with the use of Kumisi therapeutic mud and electro magneto field of millimeter range resulted decrease of inflammation process and body sensitization in patients with traumas of peripheral nervous trunks almost to disappearance of inflammation process and body sensitization. Such rehabilitation increased nonspecific resistance, normalized the indices of immune reactivity. The above-referred positive shifts were comparatively well expressed at neuroapraxia of peripheral nervous trunks.
