Lumbar Treatment

The lower spine and pelvis consists of 5 lumbar vertebrae, 5 discs, 1 central sacrum and 2 pelvic bones. The illustration above shows 5 lumbar vertebrae with 4 normal discs (blue) and one irritated disc (red). Observe how the holes behind each disc are actually formed by one disc and two vertebrae. The opening (foreman) behind each disc is where the spinal nerve roots exit. When an injured disc bulges or herniates, it typically expands backwards and into the nerve opening where it puts irritating pressure onto the soft spinal nerve root. This is how most nerve pressure or irritation occurs. These pressures produce a variety of debilitating symptoms


The above left image show 3 stages of progressive disc involvement. The disc protrusion and subsequent disc prolapse (herniation) creates nerve pressure which produces symptoms. The above right image shows a typical disc herniation.


This disc below is herniated onto the yellow nerve and pinching it.

  • Symptoms Typically Include;
    • Sciatica,
    • Numbness
    • Difficult Sleeping
    • Hip Pain & Stiffness
    • Hot or Cold Sensations
    • Dull or Heavy Type Pain
    • Muscle Spasm or Weakness
    • Difficulty Walking or Standing
    • Painful Sitting
    • Pins and Needles
    • Pain into the legs
    • Intense Sharp Pain
  • Successful therapy begins by removing nerve root irritations or pressures caused by bulged or herniated discs as well as compressed spinal joints (The red arrow in the illustration above is pointing to a large disc bulge).

    AntalgiCare™ creates a soothing vacuum pressure within the disc by gently stretching and improving the spacing between the spinal segments. The goal of treatment with the Antalgic-Trak™ is to retract and return the protruded disc materials back into their pre-pressured borders.

    Disc healing can't begin until the abnormal pressures are removed from it. Alleviating excessive pressure on an injured disc will help in speeding recovery of what is oftentimes a painful debilitating condition.

    AntalgiCare™ helps by gently alleviating abnormal spinal pressures and enables the compressed disc and irritated nerve tissues to heal.

    Cervical Treatment

    The Cervical Spine & Therapy

    The illustrations above, show the relationship between the head and the spine.

    The cervical (neck) spinal column is made up of 7 stacked vertebrae with 6 cartilage discs between them. Together they form a protective tube for the spinal cord and nerve roots.

    The spinal cord begins at the base of the brain and travels downwards through the cervical spine to the lumbar spine (low back) where it ends. There it splits into smaller nerves that travel into the lower extremities.

    Cervical MRI

    In the illustration above, the doctor is pointing to a large herniated disc with 3 disc bulges below it.

    The herniation and bulges are pressing against the spinal nerves. These nerve pressures produce a variety of painful symptoms and movement problems.

    This illustration above shows how the vertebrae and cartilage discs are stacked with each other.

    Cartilage discs are sandwiched between vertebrae and act as shock absorbing spacers. The small foramina (opening) behind the disc are actually formed by three elements. These include the back wall the disc, plus the vertebra above it and below it. Nerves exit from these foramen.

    The irritated disc (seen in red) is bulged forward. When a disc bulges backwards (The majority bulge backwards) it encroaches into the foramen putting pressure against the nerve. This is how symptoms are created.


    Cervical Neck Symptoms Include;

    • Vertigo
    • Neck Pains
    • Blurred Vision
    • Muscle Spasms
    • Movement Problems
    • Cold Upper Extremities
    • Numbness or Tingling
    • Headaches/Migraines
    • Weakness in the upper extremities


    How Does AntalgiCare Therapy Treat These Conditions and Symptoms? AntalgiCare increases vertebral spacing using a gentle and soothing spinal elongation process. The goal of this process is to in aid in reducing bulging discs.

    AntalgiCare's gentle elongation creates a soothing inner disc vacuum. This vacuum draws nourishing fluids into and around the perimeter of the disc to hydrate the disc and improve healing of an injured disc.

    It is virtually impossible for a disc to properly heal while it is squeezed and under pressure. Irritating compression forces must first be removed.

    AntalgiCare helps by gently alleviating abnormal spinal pressures and enables the compressed disc and irritated nerve tissues to heal.
