A herniated disk is also referred to as a “slipped disk” or “ruptured disk.” These disks are the rubbery circular pads found between the spaces of your spinal vertebrae, which act as a shock absorber when you bend or curve your back. Each disk has a soft, jelly-like center that cushions the nerves within the spine. When a disk dislocation occurs, the jelly center of the disk is pushed out through a crack in the rubber casing of the disk. At this point, any back movements may pinch the nerve encased in the slipped portion of the disk and cause symptoms.
When a disk is herniated, the patient may have symptoms in a few days later or in some cases immediately. Herniated disks can occur anywhere along the spinal column, from the neck to the middle back or lower back but more commonly in the lower back area.
The cause of a herniated disk is typically the result of strenuous physical activity involving the spinal column from sports, lifting heavy objects or due to overweight pressure placed on the spine.
Percutaneous Hydrotomy treatments stimulate the production of new antibodies and increases our defenses by the use of essential trace elements, Quinton isotonic sterile sea water containing 92 chemical elements from Mendeleev's periodic table together with vitamins and minerals resulting in a composition very similar to human plasma plus certain amino acids to remove toxic heavy metals deposits from the treated areas. As a result, generation of new mucous membrane occurs reducing compression and cartilage inflammation which produces pain, discomfort, and limitation of movement in the affected areas.
Percutaneous Hydrotomy produces long lasting positive results with no adverse secondary effects or risks without the use of analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, stem cells and acupuncture, ozone or chiropractic therapies.
