Shmorl`s Hernia. After conducting the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and establishing diagnosis some patients ask me: “What is Shmorl`s hernia?” This radiographic term was first introduced by the German scientist and physician Christian Shmorl in 1927. A hernia is the result of punching endplates of Shmorl`s cartilage in cancellous bone, i.e., inside the upper or lower vertebral body. We discover them by X-ray, computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Let me give one example. At the reception, a man, about forty years old, complained of tachycardia and pain under the shoulder blade. MRI research has shown Schmorl`s hernia of 4-5 mm of vertebra of the thoracic spine. With the naked eye it was evident a considerable compaction of vertebrae. The patient told me that for two years he was visiting different hospitals, but there were no results. He decided not to do the operation, but from time to time he called “ambulance”.
By my technique and using a stretching device with Glisson`s loop my patient after eight medical procedures was completely healthy. Such examples are quite a few. Many patients need qualified help, and it shows how important it is to create a clinic for treatment on my technique. Applying my apparatus Garpet with breathing exercises and other techniques, I prove that the Schmorl`s hernia is treated.
