All treatments are administered with the patient fully clothed. A typical
daily treatment session consists of 15-20 minutes of decompression on the SpineMED™ Table followed by home ice therapy. The process is painless and safe. Most patients actually fall asleep during treatment.
Most patients will find relief of their symptoms between 10 and 25
sessions, while the average recommended course of treatment is 15-25 sessions. Ideally, the sessions are performed 3 to 4 times a week.
After only a few weeks of treatment, research has shown outstanding
results in relieving the debilitating pain caused by degenerative, bulging, herniated or ruptured discs, as well as sciatica, spinal stenosis, and many failed back surgery cases. Most patients are able to return to normal levels of activity at work or recreation in just a few weeks time.
It is not recommended to do heavy lifting or perform vigorous exercises after treatment sessions until the patient is fully healed.
