Technology to minimize complications
The computer-guided device that we use serves to create a traction or stretching (i.e. a decompression) of the body part under treatment. This increases lymphatic fluid circulation inside discs and joints, decreasing the symptoms causing the pain.
Why opt for this treatment (invented by a Canadian doctor) instead of painkillers or anti-inflammatory drugs? A number of studies have demonstrated that the long-term consumption of these pain-numbing tablets can cause gastrointestinal dysfunctions.
For people suffering from degenerative disc disease, surgery is linked to a high rate of complications (55% in the United States).
