Campbell River is now home to the first SpineMed Decompression System on the North Island.

New spinal treatment service can bring relief to Campbell River patients

Back and neck pain affects 80 per cent of people at one time or another.

This type of pain often leads to reduced activities and sends those afflicted searching for solutions. Spinal decompression is an innovative method to relieve this discomfort and Campbell River is now home to the first SpineMed Decompression System on the North Island.

This therapy works by applying gentle pressure to the back in an effort to expand space between compressed discs in the spine. Spinal decompression can provide relief for herniated discs, sciatica, pinched nerves and even degenerative disc disorders, with no surgery, drugs, incisions or injections.

The SpineMed name is considered by many to be the most targeted, comfortable and effective system on the market today. SpineMed can be found at Discovery Chiropractic. The team welcomes people to come in and see how this service can help them.

“SpineMed offers people with chronic neck or lower back pain another option to alleviate their pain and get them back to the things they love to do,” chiropractor Dr. Josh West says. “If you are contemplating spinal surgery from a herniated disc or spinal stenosis it is worth while trying this innovative technology first. We are proud to offer this service to Vancouver Island.”

If you are curious if Spinal Decompression is for you, give them a call at 250.287.8487 or stop by the office and see the SpineMed for yourself.
