Joomla rewrites all my links

In my Joomla site I need to link to this page:
 http://www.midohiosurgical.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=75&Itemid=130

Joomla always rewrites my link some other way which doesn't work.

if I type this: index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=75&Itemid=130
the link goes here:
http://www.midohiosurgical.com/component/content/

and if type this: index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=75
the link goes here: http://www.midohiosurgical.com/component/content/article/75

This link is in the body of an article. Is there any way to get Joomla to go to this URL address: http://www.midohiosurgical.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=75&Itemid=130
without rewriting it?

Thanks

It sounds like the SEF is set to on but the .htaccess is not ready. Do you have an htaccess.txt or an .htaccess file?

It should be .htaccess and the contents should be

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/index.php
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (/|\.php|\.html|\.htm|\.feed|\.pdf|\.raw|/[^.]*)$  [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) index.php
RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},L]

or go to config and turn sef off.
