Spine Med Patient Information

In conjunction with SpineMed, HCRC is providing spinal decompression services. The SpineMED table provides spinal decompression using concepts similar to traditional traction commonly used in physiotherapy clinics. The decompression table is designed to apply a gentle distraction tension to the spinal segment that is damaged, without causing a reflex contraction of the muscles in the area. This computerized electronic system has a feedback loop system which monitors and changes the tension being applied to a patient every 2.5 milliseconds. This tension applied to the exact disc, create a negative pressure, which helps to reduce the disc bulge and accelerate healing.

You may be appropriate for this service if you have the following:

  • Disc bulge
  • Disc herniation
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Sciatica caused from a disc injury.
  • Failed low back surgery & no hardware.

Conditions that are not appropriate to treat include:

  • Connective tissue disease
  • Spinal tumors - metastatic and primary
  • Spondylolisthesis grade 2 and above
  • Severe Spinal Instablilty
  • Surgical hardware in the spine.
  • Fractures of the spine or pars defects.


To become a candidate for an assessment:

  • Clients must have a recent x-ray (within one year)
  • CT or MRI would be beneficial
  • Please bring just the paper copy of the x-Ray MRI or CT report and not the actual x- rays or cd.

If you are interested in further information, please feel free to link to our Spinal Decompression website, email or call. We would be happy to send you a package. If you are interested in pursuing treatment, contact the clinic for a consultation with a physiotherapist.
