Treat disc hernias
Most patients with back pain secondary to herniated discs are treated with conservative treatment: rest, medication and / or physical therapy.

Those undergoing conventional surgery may take several weeks or months to recover clinically, implying multiple changes in their daily and professional routines.
Disco-FX® thus revolutionizes and provides an alternative for those whose pain does not relieve conservative treatments and who do not feel prepared for conventional / traditional surgery. In fact, this is a minimally invasive procedure requiring only two days of hospitalization, and no scarring.
