The SpineMED Decompression System is used to treat the symptoms associated with bulged and herniated discs, spinal stenosis and some cases of failed back surgery. Chronic low back pain, sciatica, numbness and tingling in the legs and feet, difficulty walking and weakness of the legs can be successfully resolved in many cases without drugs, epidural injections or surgery.
Developed by physical medicine specialists and a team of engineers, the SpineMED Decompression System uses a computer algorithm and a specially designed therapy table that targets spinal discs and delivers a sequence of gentle pulling and relaxing cycles that produces negative pressure within the problematic disc. This combination of progressive and regressive cycles creates a vacuum effect which draws fluids and nutrients into the disc and pulls bulged and herniated material back toward the center of the disc and off sensitive nerve tissue. Treatment is painless and relaxing. Many of our patients fall asleep during the thirty minute treatment cycles. Candidates for this protocol are carefully screened. A detailed and thorough examination along with MRI findings determine acceptance into an eight week treatment program that has exceptional results in most cases. We introduced this technology to the bay area in 2005 and our experience and knowledge base regarding non-surgical treatment protocols is second to none.
