Do you suffer from back pain? Does the pain shoot up to the limbs? Then you may suffer from herniated disc, and due to its pressure and other degenerative changes to the spine on the nerve root, it can develop into the so-called radiculoneuropathy.
Characteristics of herniated discs, nerve compression and radiculoneuropathy, and their causes
A herniated disc the inner occurs when part of a disc slips into the spinal canal through a rupture in its perimeter. This slipped part either irritates or compresses nerves.
Should the herniated disc compress a nerve root, it can cause severe back pain. This pain can be accompanied by a tingling sensation and will worsen while coughing, moving or sitting for long periods.
Radiculoneuropathy develops as a result of pressure created by a herniated disc or osteophytes or through the effect of other degenerative changes to the spine affecting nerve roots.
The area to where pain spreads is dependant on exactly where the pressure is. Radiculoneuropathy also gives rise to a range of vertebrogenic pain syndromes, all of which are dominated by spinal pain, such as:
- acute cervical spine pain,
- chronic cervical spine pain,
- cervicocranial syndrome – accompanied by pain shooting down the head,
- cervicovestibular syndrome – a state in which a blocked cervical spine causes vertigo,
- cervicobrachial syndrome – upper limb pain, where the root cause lies in lower part of the cervical spine,
- radicular syndrome with symptoms manifesting in the upper limb,
- thoracic spine pain,
- chronic pain in the lumbar area and lower back,
- radicular syndrome with symptoms manifesting in the lower limb.
The most significant cause of herniated disc is gradual wear and tear, weakening, and the strain of everyday life.
Other factors can contribute as well:
- little physical activity,
- improper physical strain on the spine while working,
- excessive and unsuitable sports.
Herniated disc, nerve compression and radiculoneuropathy treatment – rid yourself of the pain
Specific methods of treatment are chosen by the physician based on individual symptoms and cause.
In the acute stage, bedrest is recommended and pain is mitigated through administering analgesics. Muscle relaxants are also administered in order to relax muscles in the affected area of the spine.
Local injection and corticoids can be administered. The affected area of the spine is temporarily fixed by a neck brace or lumbar support.
To achieve a more significant pain-soothing and muscle-relaxing effect, physical therapy is used: for example, in the form of 3D pulse therapy.
After treating the acute stage, physiotherapy is immediately initiated in order to help with muscle imbalance (uneven use of muscle groups). Persistent serious cases call for surgical intervention. 3D pulse therapy can be applied as way of preparation for surgical intervention and later in convalescence and even later as a precautionary measure for further degenerative changes.
3D Biomag pulse therapy helps treating herniated disc, nerve compression, radiculoneuropathy and vertebrogenic pain syndrome.
Explanation of chosen terms:
- Muscle disbalance – uneven use of muscle groups.
- Cervicocranial syndrome – disorder of the cervical spine where pain shoots up to the head.
- Cervicobrachial syndrome – pain in the upper limb, which has its cause in the lower part of cervical spine.
- Cervicovestibular syndrome – a condition where blocked cervical spine causes vertigo.
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.
What are the benefits of therapy of herniated disc?
- Helps soothe pain.
- Has anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematous effect.
- Has a regenerative and muscle relaxing effect.
- Can be used in home care thanks to being easy to control.
- Is a solution not needing extra medication.
- Is a non-invasive form of treatment.

The effects of pulsed therapy - clinical studies
The most clinically significant effects of 3D Biomag pulse therapy in patients suffering from herniated disc, nerve compression or radiculoneuropathy lies mainly within the analgesic and anti-oedematous effect.
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).

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'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.Jana Jurčeková, Hroznova Lhota
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
