Intervertebral disc pathology is one of the primary causes of back and neck pain. The discs are prone to degeneration and injury as they are compressed and twisted through daily activities.Damaged intervertebral discs seldom heal because they remain under constant pressure, even while a person is at rest. It is widely accepted that the ideal environment to improve disc pathology is to decompress, or reduce the intradiscal pressures of the damaged disc.
SpineMED® is designed to target damaged spinal segments and decompress intervertebral discs in order to promote the body’s natural healing abilities.
The SpineMED® protocol consists of 20-25 sessions that are 30 minutes each in duration. SpineMED® sessions are typically administered 3-5 times per week over a 4-6 week period. The procedure is performed with the patient fully clothed and has been described as safe, painless and extremely effective. In fact, it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during the procedure. Each session has a cumulative effect designed to significantly reduce pain and improve function as patients progress through the SpineMED® program.
SpineMED® Decompression is showing encouraging success rates for patients suffering with lumbar and cervical disc pathologies, both alone and in conjunction with complimentary patient services.
