Effectively Treating Your Back and Neck Pain

Most low back and neck pain can typically be managed through traditional treatment options such as rest, over the counter pain medications, other pain management therapies, physical therapy, chiropractic care, and even nontraditional treatments such as acupuncture.However, discogenic pain caused by a damaged or degenerated spinal disc can be intractable. For these cases, addressing the underlying disc problem may be the only answer to lasting relief.

It is widely accepted that the ideal environment to heal a damaged spinal disc is to decompress, or reduce the intradiscal pressures of the damaged disc. In fact, decompression is the goal of many spinal surgical procedures.Fortunately, there is now a procedure provided with the goal of decompressing the spine Non-Surgically. 

The Benefits of  Non-surgical Disc Therapy

SpineMED®, the world's leading non-surgical, exceptionally comfortable spinal decompression system, is designed to target and decompress injured intervertebral discs through distraction and positioning of the lumbar or cervical spine comfortably - without the use of ropes, harnesses or pulleys. It is Licensed by Health Canada, FDA Cleared and provides a non-surgical, drug-free option for patients suffering from spinal disc problems like:

  • Bulging and Herniated Discs
  • Radiating Leg & Arm Pain
  • Numbness in the Arms & Legs
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Disc Degeneration
 

About Non-surgical Disc Therapy 

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.

As the disc degenerates, the gel-like nucleus loses its hydration, reducing disc height and creating the possibility of facet syndrome and lateral foraminal stenosis. Furthermore, disc degeneration causes the pliable outer coating of the anulus to become brittle and susceptible to cracks and tears that can lead to disc herniations. Bulging or herniated discs often press on spinal nerves, causing severe pain and radiculopathy.

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.

The goal of reducing intradiscal pressure is to enhance the osmotic diffusion of fluids and nutrients across the endplates into the disc, furthering the body's natural healing abilities. Additionally, reduction of intradiscal pressures may help draw the nucleus pulposus of a herniated disc back into the center, thereby relieving pressure on a compressed nerve root-alleviating your problem and  pain. 

SpineMED® Decompression Therapy Procedure

For Low Back Pain, you are comfortably positioned lying down face upward, knees bent and resting on the bolster. The Patented Pelvic Restraints are adjusted to comfortably secure your pelvis. The upper torso is secured to the fixed section of the table using velcroed upper restraint. Your Doctor or your Chiropractic Assistant then keys in session parameters. The Patented Pelvic Tilt section electronically tilts the pelvis to target the specific injured spinal segments. Then with precise computer controlle tensionthe specific disc segment is gently distracted.

For cervical procedures, the cervical unit is first electronically tilted to the angle required to target specific segments of the cervical spine. You are then placed on the table with your head positioned in the cervical cradle unit. The patented Cervical Restraints are designed to comfortably capture the base of the patient's skull for controlled distraction.

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 fully clothed and has been described as safe, painless and extremely effective. In fact, it is not uncommon for you to fall asleep during the procedure. Each session has a cumulative effect, designed to significantly reduce pain and improve function as you progress through the SpineMED® program.

SpineMED® Decompression continues to show encouraging success rates for individuals suffering with lumbar and cervical disc pathologies, both alone and in conjunction with spinal rehabilitation therapies such as Chiropractic Therapy, Whole Body Vibration Therapy, Nutrition Therapy and Therapeutic Massage Therapy.
