Spinal decompression is a non-surgical, drug free solution for both chronic and acute back pain. At Clinique MV, these treatments are administered by our chiropractor, Dr. Tanya Simard, using the SpineMED system. This Health Canada-approved, computer-assisted table gently stretches your spine to reduce pressure between vertebrae and facilitate healing.
High-Tech Pain Relief
When spinal vertebrae apply too much force on the discs between them, those discs can bulge or herniate. As long as compression continues, the discs can't heal - making pain become chronic. In many cases, the best solution is to manually release pressure via decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression can alleviate symptoms related to:
Degenerative disc disease
Herniated and bulging discs
Non-specified lower back pain and neck pain
Numbness in hands and arms

(includes a chiropractic adjustment)
Treatment typically consists of 3–5 sessions a week over 4–6 weeks. As you lie fully clothed and comfortably secured on the SpineMED table, Tanya programs the session’s parameters, and the system slowly begins stretching the targeted spinal segments. During alternating stretching and relaxation periods, the computer continually measures your body’s response and adjusts the applied tension in real-time. Through safe, low-force decompression, SpineMED relieves inflammation and pain, allowing your body to begin the healing process.
