FAQ’s

What is SpineMED® Decompression*?
SpineMED® Decompression is a remarkable non-surgical, drug-free procedure for the treatment of back and neck pain caused by injured or degenerated spinal discs.  It works by targeting and gently relieving the pressure on the damaged segment of the spine, which eases pain and speeds up the body’s natural healing process. 
Can I benefit from SpineMED® Decompression?

SpineMED® Decompression is designed to help people suffering from disc-related pain.  Any back or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by SpineMED® Decompression*.  These conditions include degenerated discs, herniated, protruding or bulging discs, pinched nerves, spinal stenosis, sciatica, facet syndrome and radiculopathy.

Why should I choose SpineMED®?

The SpineMED® System is patented technology (patent #7201729).  The SpineMED® System has eliminated the use of cumbersome nylon harnesses and pulleys.  The patented pelvic restraint system provides a secure, comfortable and repeatable capture of the skeletal structure, eliminating the variability and inconvenience of pelvic harnesses.  Once the pelvic is captured, the technician can accurately isolate the damaged disc by adjusting the patented pelvic tilting section.  Increased specificity combined with a more efficient capture results in lower force requirements than previous technologies.  The SpineMED® System’s ability to achieve results using lower distraction forces greatly increases the number of suitable patients, particularly patients with acute pain and older patients.  Extensive computerization and hospital grade components make the SpineMED® System the most sophisticated decompression* device on the market.

Is there any risk during a SpineMED® session?

SpineMED® Decompression* is very comfortable.  No one has ever been injured during the SpineMED® Procedure.  The procedure is so gentle, that many patients fall asleep during the SpineMED® sessions.  The SpineMED® System also has emergency stop switches for both the patient and the operator.

Can I try SpineMED® Decompression* if I have had spinal surgery but continue to have pain?

SpineMED® Decompression can help people with back pain after failed spinal surgery, as long as no hardware (pins, screws, rods, etc…) is implanted in the section of the spine being targeted.  Schedule a consultation with your local SpineMED® doctor to see if you could be a post-surgical candidate.

Is SpineMED® FDA Cleared?

SpineMED® has been FDA cleared and is the most sophisticated non-surgical spinal-decompression technology available.  Lumbar was initially cleared by FDA in 2003.  The re-developed Lumbar/Cervical was cleared by FDA in 2005.  Health Canada approval was obtained in 2003.

How long does SpineMED® Decompression work?
SpineMED® Decompression* is designed to correct the underlying condition, which can provide a long-term solution for some causes of back and neck pain.  So long as the patient leads a healthy lifestyle and does not reinjure themselves, the results could be long-lasting
Can I work while I'm undergoing the procedure?

Yes, many patients are able to maintain a normal work schedule, although you will want to limit your work activities if they are physically stressful.  Discuss this further with your local SpineMED® doctor.

What types of conditions cannot be helped by SpineMED® Decompression*?

The low force requirements associated with SpineMED® limit the contraindications (conditions which make a particular procedure inadvisable) significantly.  Primarily, the contraindications for the decompression* procedure are instabilities of the spine such as recent fractures, bilateral pars defects, spondylolisthesis grade 2 or above and gross osteoporosis.  Additional contraindications include cancers or tumors of the spine, pregnancy and patients under the age of 15.  Post surgical patients are not contraindicated unless they have surgical hardware implanted in the region of the region of the spine being targeted.
