Characteristics of herniated disc, nerve compression and radicular syndromes: The cartilaginous intervertebral disc, which connects the adjacent vertebrae, consists of a rigid outer envelope of cartilage (annulus fibrosus) and an inner gel-like core (nucleus pulposus). Wear and tear, sudden jerking movement or compression can cause a rupture of the outer layer, squeeze out the core and cause pressure on the spinal nerve root.

A bulging disc may occur (also known as disc protrusion, the outer layer of the annulus will not tear, the inner core bulges outwards, but does not leave the disc area. Such herniated disc often returns to its original position) or the continuity of the outer cartilage can be disrupted and the inner core leaks out (herniation, prolapse). When a herniated disc presses on the nerve root, this can cause severe back pain. The pain increases with coughing, movement or long periods seated.

Pressure exerted by the herniated intervertebral disc or osteophytes and the effects of other degenerative changes of the spine on the nerve root cause the condition known as radicular syndrome (most commonly in the lower extremities). The pain site is determined by the location of the disc, and a number of vertebral pain syndromes are described (acute cervical dysfunction (crick in the neck), chronic neck pain, cervicocranial syndrome, cervicovestibular syndrome, cervicobrachial syndrome, radicular syndrome of the upper extremities, pain in the thoracic area of the spine, lumbago (crick in the back), chronic pain in the shoulders, chronic sacral pain, radicular syndrome of the lower extremities (L4, L5, S1).

Using magnetic therapy in herniated intervertebral disc and chronic nerve compression

In herniated intervertebral disc and vertebrogenic algic syndromes, the analgesic, muscle-relaxant, anti-swelling and regenerative effects of Biomag low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy can be beneficial in vertebral pain syndromes. Unfortunately, magnetic therapy alone cannot remove existing anatomical changes of a permanent character that require surgery. However, it can be used as a preparation for surgery and during the postoperative recovery period and subsequently, as prevention for other degenerative changes. The magnetic field increases the effects of concomitantly administered nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Application of magnetic therapy in herniated intervertebral disc and chronic nerve compression

In acute nerve compression and pain caused by herniated intervertebral disc and chronic nerve compression and resulting in radicular syndrome, low analgesic frequencies of 4-6 Hz are preferred; in chronic pain, alternate these with frequencies of 13-17 Hz with higher muscle-relaxant effects. The applicator is attached to the compression site on the spinal nerve.

Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?

The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetotherapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses penetrate through layers of clothing and even body tissues to the place of application. These pulses have specially developed biotropic parameters (e.g. frequency, profile, intensity), thanks to which the pulsed magnetotherapy affects various health conditions.

The term pulse magnetotherapy is most commonly used for physiotherapy using the principle of electromagnetic pulses. The abbreviation PEMF is used in order to be concise.

Patented 3D Biomag technology ensures more precise and uninterrupted pulse profiles, enhances output, and allows pulses to come from various angles. This makes it a completely new and unique medical technology on the market.

The effects of pulsed therapy - clinical studies

Positive effects of pulse magnetic field (PEMF) are evidenced by clinical studies by authorities on the subject and renowned institutions. The newest list of these clinical studies can be found on this page. Contact us and we will gladly help to familiarize yourself with this expert data.

Our department uses pulse magnetic field application very well. We appreciate that not only is there an option to used numbered programmes, but also to set up our own programmes. The device is small and easy to operate with good output.

University hospital Na Bulovce, Prague – Physiotherapy department

We have been utilising pulse magnetic field treatment in our spa for more than 10 years. We use Biomag devices for both physiotherapy and spa treatment. It is very advantageous to combine magnetotherapy with other physiotherapy methods because the effect of magnetotherapy potentiates with other methods (analgesic, anti-oedematous, recovery and myorelaxing).

Bělohrad Peat Spa – Lázně Bělohrad

We are happy with the device. The applicators are also easy to operate, and treatment results are satisfying. Feedback from patients is positive. Average number of applications is 50 per week.

Masaryk hospital, Jilemnice

I use Biomag for relaxation of the spine after prolapsed disc surgery and relaxation of the stiff muscles and fatigue. We are happy with the device, we use it daily.

Regina Křenová, Jindřichův Hradec

I've been using Biomag for 10 years. It mostly helps me with the cervical and lumbar spine. I shortened the treatment of prolapsed discs, thanks to the device.

Adolfa Wieczorová, Radim u Kolína

I use the Biomag device with very good effects on the musculoskeletal pains resulting from the vertebrogenic syndrome. Furthermore, it is used for insufficient limb blood circulation and occasional inflammation of the bladder.
