Canadian Decompression & Pain Centers and Canadian MediPain’s adept health-care teams overhaul spines to relieve chronic neck and back pain using an array of mutlidisciplinary treatments. Therapists guide ailing clients through three 20-minute sessions in three-stage neuro-decompression therapy, with exact procedures varying according to each patient’s condition. A thorough consultation precedes treatment to examine the patient’s ailment, gait, posture, and any spinal manipulation caused by trying to sneak onto roller coasters at a young age. During phase one, clients recline on a spinal decompression table, which gently pulls on problem joints between spinal segments while monitored by a biofeedback computer. During phase two, which applies only to some, patients inhale up to 92% pure oxygen during the decompression session to further ease muscle stiffness and potentially boost immune-system function. Both stages aim to increase blood flow as they grant suffocated spinal discs access to damage-repairing nutrients, much like granting plumbers access to Koopa-removing fireballs.
Each session aims to provide relief from conditions such as herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, fibromyalgia, and degenerative disc disease, as well as injuries caused by rush-hour commutes done via somersault.
