Percutaneous hydrotomy therapy is used to treat spine and joint discomfort that is thought to be caused by such diagnoses as arthritis, herniated discs, arthrosis and other chronic pain producing disorders. The philosophy of treatment is unique in the dorsalgia sector, using injection therapies consisting of essential trace elements, Quinton isotonic sterile sea water containing 92 chemical elements from Mendeleev's periodic table, as well as a mixture of vitamins and minerals.
Treatment results in removal of toxic heavy metal deposits from the treated regions, generation of new mucous membranes and the reduction of compression and inflammation that are known to cause pain and functional limitation in affected anatomical regions.
Magnetic resonance imaging has shown dramatic reduction in herniated disc severity following percutaneous hydrotomy therapy.
Percutaneous hydrotomy is said to produce long-lasting positive results with no adverse secondary effects or substantial risks. The injection process does not use analgesics, steroids, or other harmful substances.
Treatment has been successfully applied to resolve back and joint pain, arthritis, intervertebral herniation, spinal stenosis, TMJ/TMD, carpal tunnel syndrome, and a host of neuralgias including sciatica, as well as other problematic conditions.
