How to relieve herniated discs with Neurovertebral Decompression

neurovertebral decompression

Neurovertebral decompression

It is a technology developed by American Orthopaedic Surgeons and used in Hospitals in the USA, Brazil, Germany, Korea and even Japan!

In some cases, it is a non-invasive alternative to spinal surgery.

Computer controlled and equipped with sensors, the table gently stretches the spine without causing muscle resistance and in a safe manner.

The neurovertebral decompression could be an interesting solution for you! This is not a chiropractic technique, but an impressively effective complementary therapy!


All treatments are administered to the fully clothed patient.

For lumbar treatments, the patient is comfortably seated on the table and the patented pelvic retainer is adjusted to properly 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-aided and enables the exertion of low 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 him in the cervical headrest. The cervical retainer comfortably stabilizes the base of the patient's skull and helps control distraction.

A typical session consists of 15 minutes of warmth, followed by 30 minutes of decompression with the SpineMED system and 15 minutes of therapy with ice.

The process is painless and safe: some patients will even fall asleep during the treatment!

HOW DOES Spinal Decompression WORK?

Neurodiscal decompression

regeneration of disks

The disc has at its center a gelatinous nucleus (the nucleus) surrounded by a fibrous ring (the annulus).

The discs are not supplied by blood vessels to nourish and regenerate them. The nutrition of the disc cells is achieved by the diffusion of nutrients and oxygen through the endplates.

This transfer of nutrients depends on the pressure difference between the inside of the disc, the surrounding vertebrae and blood vessels.

This is why the nutrition and regeneration of the discs occurs while lying down, reducing the pressure inside the discs.

This process loses its effectiveness with age causing increasing wear and tear.

The discs thus lose their ability to heal and regenerate.


Our discs are prone to injury and degeneration every day when we use our backs. They compress and twist when you sit, bend or lift 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 eventually cause an annular tear.

As pressure builds up inside the discs, these tears produce a disc protrusion resembling an old, deformed tire. If all the fibrous layers tear, the gelatinous core spills outwards, causing a herniated disc.

An herniated disc can put pressure on a nerve causing sciatica (sciatica) or radiculopathy. During normal activities, the pressure inside the discs varies between 100mm/HG and 300mm/HG.

herniated disc

According to several clinical studies, results exceed 85% of efficacy in relieving the symptoms of patients suffering from chronic neck pain or lower back, herniated cervical or lumbar discs, numbness in the limbs and osteoarthritis.

SpineMED is a non-surgical decompression technology that has proven to be an effective treatment for herniated discs and osteoarthritis-related back pain. The SpineMED system applies a controlled, intermittent decompression force to the spine, decompressing the discs and relieving pressure on the nerves. The decompression force is applied using a special vest and pulley system, which allows the patient to remain comfortable during treatments. SpineMED treatments are typically performed over a period of weeks or months, and the number of treatments required depends on the severity of the condition being treated. There is evidence to suggest that SpineMED can provide significant relief from back pain, and that it is a safe and effective treatment


Systemic back and neck pain affects 80% of the North American population at some point in their lives. According to the WHO, 30% of people currently suffer from it. These problems often cause a permanent loss of function, forcing people to stop normal life activities.

The highly advanced SpineMED Spinal Decompression System finally gives you hope to regain your body's freedom and well-being!

Stop suffering! Do not wait any longer and make an appointment for an evaluation exam.

Some questions / answers from our patients about the causes and symptoms...

What contraindication for decompression?

Neurovertebral decompression is a type of treatment that uses negative pressure to decompress the spine. It can be an effective treatment for conditions such as herniated discs, degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis. However, there are some contraindications to neurovertebral decompression. These include osteoporosis, cancer and infection. In addition, patients with metal implants or other metal objects in the spine may not be candidates for this type of treatment. Decompression may also not be recommended for pregnant women or those who have had recent surgery. If you are considering neurovertebral decompression, be sure to discuss your entire medical history with your doctor to make sure it is the right treatment for you.

Is a herniated disc very painful ?

A herniated disc can cause a lot of pain. When the disc decompresses, the internal material can come out and press on the nerves around it. This can cause radiating pain, numbness or weakness in the extremities. In severe cases, it can also cause bladder or bowel dysfunction. If you think you have a herniated disc, it is important to see a doctor immediately. He or she will be able to diagnose the problem and recommend treatment options. Treatment may include pain medication, physical therapy or surgery. Our team will provide you with excellent service to relieve your pain.

What is lumbar arthrodesis ?

Lumbar spinal fusion is a type of decompression surgery that is used to relieve pain in the lower back. The normal-looking procedure involves fusing the bones of the spine, which stabilizes the spine and decompresses the nerves. In most cases, lumbar spine fusion is performed as a minimally invasive surgery, which means that it requires smaller incisions and has a shorter recovery time. In some cases, patients must stay in the hospital for a few days after the procedure, but most people are able to go home within a week. Recovery time varies by individual, but most people report significant pain reduction within a few months.
