SPINEMED TECHNOLOGY – EFFECTIVE CARE FOR DISCAL HERNIA AND ARTHROSIS
Here is the new SpineMED neuro-vertebral decompression technology in Ste-Rose, Laval. We made the major acquisition of this device in 2015. Combined with our chiropractic care, it has proven to be a gentle, effective, non-surgical, medication-free solution to care for herniated discs, back and neck, sciatica, headaches, numbness, radiculopathy, facet syndrome and severe osteoarthritis! The results are phenomenal! Many of our patients have regained an unexpected quality of life!
This device is approved by Health Canada!
The SpineMED Spine Decompression System is designed for care for herniated discs and certified to the worldwide medical standards FDA 510, U.S Patent and Health Canada. 3rd generation device.
NEURO-VERTEBRAL DECOMPRESSION WHAT IS IT?
Neuro-vertebral decompression is a technology developed by American orthopedic surgeons and used in American, Brazilian, German, Korean and even Japanese hospitals! This is in some cases a non-invasive alternative to spinal surgeries. Controlled by computer and equipped with sensors, the table gently stretches the spine without causing muscular resistance and safely. Neuro-vertebral decompression could be an interesting solution for you! This is not a chiropractic technique, but a complementary therapy with an impressive effectiveness!
All treatments are administered to the fully clothed patient.
For lumbar treatments, the patient is comfortably installed on the table and the patented pelvic restraint is adjusted to stabilize the patient’s pelvis. The thorax and pelvis are stabilized by a comfortable system incorporated in the fixed section of the table. The patented tilting section is computer-assisted and allows the application of small negative forces in the form of microtractions on certain segments of the column in a very precise and safe manner.
For cervical procedures, the device electronically tilts to the angle required to target certain segments of the cervical vertebrae.
The patient is then placed on the table by positioning it in the cervical head support. The cervical restraint system comfortably stabilizes the patient’s skull base and controls distraction.
A typical session consists of 10 minutes of warmth followed by 30 minutes of decompression with the SpineMED system and 10 minutes of therapy with ice.
The process is painless and safe: some patients will even fall asleep during treatment!
HOW DOES VERTEBRAL DECOMPRESSION WORK?
The vertebral disc has at its center a gelatinous nucleus, surrounded by a fibrous ring (the annulus). Discs are not powered by blood vessels to nourish and regenerate them. The nutrition of the disc cells is achieved by diffusion of nutrients and oxygen through the vertebral plates. This transfer of nutrients depends on the difference in pressure between the inside of the disc, the vertebrae and the surrounding blood vessels. This is why the nutrition and regeneration of discs occur when lying down, reducing the pressure inside the discs. The process loses its effectiveness as it grows older causing increased wear and tear. The discs lose their ability to heal and regenerate.
Everyday our discs are subject to injury and degeneration when we use our back. They compress and twist when sitting, leaning or lifting a weight. At the two lower levels of the lumbar discs the compressive forces can be 2,000 to 3,000 pounds per square inch. Repeated injuries weaken and possibly cause an annular tear. With the increased pressure inside the discs, these tears produce a disc projection resembling an old deformed tire. If all the fibrous layers tear, the gelatinous nucleus overflows to the outside causing a herniated disc. A protrusion or herniated disk can put pressure on a nerve causing sciatica (sciatica) or radiculopathy.
During normal operations, the pressure inside the discs varies between 100mm / HG and 300mm / HG.

IS IT REIMBURSABLE BY MY INSURANCE?
Yes! This is covered by the majority of insurance.
HOW DOES NEURO-VERTEBRAL DECOMPRESSION WORK?
Damaged intervertebral discs rarely heal as they are constantly under pressure. Decompression or reduction of the pressure inside a disc facilitates its rehydration, its feeding and its oxygenation, which allows to resume its expansion and to decrease the pressure on the nerves.
HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT?
1- 10 minutes of heat is applied to the area to be treated before decompression.
2- The decompression lasts 30 minutes. It is a gentle treatment
(Patients can relax and even sleep during this stage).
3- 10 minutes of ice
4- A meeting with the doctor for a chiropractic treatment.
According to several clinical studies, results exceed 85% efficacy to relieve the symptoms of patients with chronic neck or lower back pain, cervical or lumbar disc hernias, limb numbness and osteoarthritis . A study highlighting its effectiveness has appeared in the reputed scientific journal SPINE in 2015.
Lumbar and cervical pain affects 80% of the North American population at some point in their lives. According to WHO, 30% of people are currently suffering from it. These problems often cause a permanent loss of function, causing these people to stop normal life actives.
