On my first visit I immediately saw that Dr. Poirier knew what he was talking about and had experience. He answered all my questions and took the time necessary to perform a proper examination.
“La décompression cervicale lombaire” treats the syndromes caused by the weakening of the cervical or lumbar discs, without surgery or prescribed medication. This system, guided by computer, softly applies decompression to the spine; it serves as traction or stretching of the area targeted for treatment. This technology gives the chiropractor the precision and the exact strength he needs in order to apply the exact amount of traction.
For example, it can also alleviate the ache caused by:
- Herniated discs
- Soreness to the neck and shoulders
- Lower back pain
- Degenerative illness of the articulations (arthritis)

Decompression increases circulation of the lymphatic liquids situated within the discs and the (joints) articulations, which diminish the pain causing the symptoms that creates the pain you are feeling.
