Spinal Decompression Therapy: An Overview
The Spinal decompression therapy is an advanced technology for the treatment of spinal disorders. It aims to relieve pressure on the spinal discs and promote natural healing.
The Science Behind Spinal decompression therapy Neurovertebral decompression is based on advanced scientific principles. It uses cutting-edge technology to create a controlled vacuum, which reduces the pressure exerted on the intervertebral discs. This method promotes the rehydration of the discs and the reduction of herniated discs, thus providing significant pain relief.
Customization of Decompression Treatment Each patient receives a personalized treatment plan, based on a detailed assessment of their specific condition. Decompression machine settings are adjusted to meet individual needs, ensuring a treatment that is both safe and effective.
Benefits and Expected Results Patients treated with neurovertebral decompression often report a noticeable reduction in pain and improvement in mobility. This treatment is particularly beneficial for cases of herniated discs, sciatica, and other spinal-related disorders.
Osteopathy: Understanding its Importance
Osteopathy is an approach holistic treatment that treats the entire body. It is effective in treating a variety of conditions, focusing on strengthening musculature and improving mobility.
Holistic Approach in Osteopathy Osteopathy is distinguished by its holistic approach to the human body. It does not limit itself to treating symptoms, but seeks to identify and treat the underlying causes of bodily imbalances. This comprehensive approach promotes more complete and lasting healing.
Manual Techniques in Osteopathy TAGMED Clinic osteopaths use a variety of manual techniques, such as joint manipulation, soft tissue massage, and mobilization. These techniques help restore mobility, reduce pain, and improve blood and lymphatic circulation.
Benefits of Osteopathy Osteopathy is effective in treating a wide range of conditions, including back pain, musculoskeletal disorders, headaches, and digestive disorders. It is also beneficial for improving general well-being and reducing stress.
Laser Treatment: Advances and Benefits
Laser treatment uses light beams to reduce inflammation and speed healing. This non-invasive method is particularly effective for soft tissue injuries.
Principles of Laser Treatment Laser treatment works by directing beams of focused light onto affected areas. This light penetrates the tissues, stimulating cell regeneration and speeding up the healing process. The treatment is non-invasive and painless.
Applications of Laser Treatment The laser is particularly effective in treating soft tissue injuries, such as sprains, tendinitis and bursitis. It is also used to speed wound healing, reduce inflammation and relieve chronic pain.
Safety and Effectiveness of Laser Treatment To the Clinical TAGMED, we use the highest quality laser equipment, ensuring safe and effective treatment. Our patients benefit from a rapid reduction in symptoms and a notable improvement in their quality of life.
Shockwave Therapy: A Revolution in Treatment
The shockwave therapy is a modern solution for chronic pain, stimulating the regeneration of damaged tissues using acoustic waves.
Mechanism of Action of Shock Waves Shockwave therapy works by sending high-energy acoustic waves into affected tissues. These waves stimulate cell regeneration and improve blood circulation, which speeds up the healing process.
Indications for Shock Wave Therapy This therapy is particularly effective in treating conditions such as epicondylitis, plantar fasciitis, and calcifications of the tendons. It is also used to treat certain chronic conditions resistant to conventional treatments.
Benefits of Shock Wave Therapy Patients treated with shock waves at Clinical TAGMED often report rapid improvement in pain and accelerated recovery. This therapy is non-invasive, without the need for anesthesia, and has few side effects.

For information purposes, and to those who would not be certain of the difference between a treatment, a consultation and a review, here is a short summary:
A consultation is a discussion between a therapist and a patient in which the therapist asks questions about your state of health, and the condition for which you see, gives advice and offers different tests to evaluate you.
By contrast, a review is a procedure that allows the practitioner to gather more information about the health of the patient, and can include physical tests (amplitudes of motion, orthopedic tests, or neurological) or even an assessment based on the report of your test, X-ray, MRI, ct or ultrasound.
Finally, a treatment is an intervention plan designed by a therapist to treat or reduce the symptoms of a health condition (eg, herniated disc) or injury (e.g. lumbar strain). Treatment may include treatment manuals, traction and/or therapies such as laser or the shockwave, as the case may be. See the list of treatments offered at the clinic TAGMED here .
- How much will it cost me the first visit?
The first consultation at the clinic TAGMED can cost between $75 and $185, depending on the type of treatment provided. Complementary therapies may incur additional fees. For example, if you consult us for the treatment of one or more herniated discs that are located in your lower back, you will pay $130 for a decompression treatment neurovertébrale to a region of your spine. By the way, if you'd rather a decompression treatment neurovertébrale for one (or more) herniated disk in your lower back, and a second treatment for a herniated disc (or several) in your neck, it cost $185, because it is of two treatments in two different regions (table decompression neurovertébrale can't do a pull-up of your neck and back at the same time: it may not be that of a region (the lower back or neck) at the same time.
