Orthocure Clinic offers Non-surgical Spinal decompression therapy from Canadian Decompression and Pain Center, Canada. Spinal Decompression therapy is primarily used to treat disc injuries of the lower back. Due to accidents or lifestyle-related factors like being in a desk job or poor posture, the disc between spinal vertebrae may get compressed. This could lead to various disc-related problems like slip disc, disc herniation, or sciatica. Spinal Decompression treats the disc injuries across its various stages.
How does Spinal Decompression therapy work?
- It “decompresses” the spinal structure.
- There are a series of cycles of decompression and partial relaxation which promotes the diffusion of water and nutrients into the disc.
- Spinal decompression is a targeted treatment for the specific area of the spine where there is a disc injury.
Spinal Decompression treatment protocol
- Consultation: An assessment by a team of spine specialists is done to ascertain the need for spinal decompression treatment for your spine.
- Each session of spinal decompression lasts for about 30-45 minutes. During the decompression time, the patient stays in relaxed, lying downstate.
- It may take 12-20 sessions of decompression treatment to treat the specific disc injury depending upon your condition.

I came to Orthocure after undergoing physiotherapy (for my lower back issues) at another center for nearly 2 months. Having patiently undergone treatment at another 'popular' center without satisfactory results, I was quite skeptical about what to expect from Orthocure, as it was an unknown Centre. I had no recommendation from any known sources. I had come across Orthocure while googling the net. What followed was the 3 month treatment program of MedX which yielded excellent results. Initially Dr. Meenal and then Dr. Meeta guided me through the program. I was explained in detail what was causing the problem and how it would be treated and rectified. The program started yielding visible results after the first few sittings. While it was not smooth sailing always, as my problem was complicated, Dr. Meeta dealt with all the surprises and customized my treatment accordingly. Now at the end of 3 month program, I am completely satisfied with the results and would without any hesitation 'Fully' recommend the services of Orthocure & Dr. Meeta to anyone facing similar, lower back issues.

But Dr. Deepti Rani, who specializes in spine, took up the challenge and corrected my list with McKenzie protocol. Then she put me on a unique treatment of Spinal Decompression therapy form Canada.
