Does A Disc Lose Fluid?
A disc will normally lose a small amount of fluid during the day when
we are awake, active and working. At night when we are resting, the
disc absorbs fluids and the amount lost during the day is replenished.
This is called the intradiscal fluid exchange. If the disc is injured
or overworked, it will lose more fluid than it can naturally reabsorb.
This is called a negative intradiscal fluid exchange. When a disc
loses too much fluid, it becomes dehydrated. The disc can also bulge
outward, herniate and become diseased. By putting air in a tire, the
tire resumes its normal size and shape. By bringing fluids back into
a spinal disc, the disc returns to its normal size, shape and flexibility.
Are Discs Injured?
Lifting heavy objects or lifting light objects many times over a
period of time (repetitive trauma injuries). Good examples are:
Assembly line work, supermarket food checkers and retail clerks;
Computer work - sitting in front of a computer hour after hour,
day in and day out; Standing for long periods of time such as teaching
school; Lifting, bending or twisting; Any occupation that requires
Automobile accidents - both minor and major. Small accidents that
do not activate the automobile "crumple zone" are as dangerous
as major accidents according to Department of Transportation statistics.
Injury to a disc can cause immediate pain or show up weeks or months
after an accident. Disc injury from auto accidents, if left untreated,
lay the groundwork for a lifetime of misery and suffering.

- Scoliosis is a sideward curvature of the spine. Some scoliotic
conditions are caused by genetic defects, faulty prenatal development
and disease. However, 80% of scoliosis cases arise during infancy
and childhood from no apparent cause and afflict about 10% of all
children. Scoliosis is a progressive disease known to cause back
pain, back deformities, and many other problems. In severe cases,
the resulting spinal deformities can interfere with the action of
the breathing muscles and result in heart failure. If you have children,
they should be checked yearly for early signs of scoliosis. With
early detection, progression of the disease can be stopped and usually
reversed with proper treatment. Most Authorized ITM Treatment Centers
offer courtesy consultations and evaluations to children (and adults
as well) in the age group most susceptible to scoliosis. If you
or your child is affected by scoliosis, ITM can help.
- As we age our circulation decreases, especially around the spine.
This leads to degenerative disc disease, herniated and bulging discs,
sciatica, lumbago and "Achy Old Back" syndrome. The Vivatek,
with its patented Non-invasive Disc Rehabilitation turn an Achy
Old Back into a "Happy Back".
Disc Disease - Degenerative Disc Disease is known as the
silent tormentor. It can go on undetected for years and then begins
to rob its victim of the joy of life and their ability to work and
stay active. Degenerative Disc disease can strike gradually or suddenly
with the vengeance of agonizing, crippling pain. Early warning signs
are morning stiffness and tinges of pain in the back or neck that
temporarily go away with medication but return with increasing frequency
and severity. Hands or feet falling asleep are a sure indicator.
Test yourself by rotating the head or trunk. Is the rotation equal
from side to side? Does the rotation cause any clicks, pops or crunchy
noise? If the answer is yes to any of the above there is a high
probability of Degenerative Disc Disease. Vivatek is the answer
for this agonizing, potentially crippling disorder.
- Vivatek can also prevent many spinal related disorders. If you
are in good health today and want to stay that way, Vivatek provides
excellent preventative care. An occasional Non-invasive Vivatek
treatment will keep the pharmacist and surgeon away.
