Since my treatments, the walker is over. The MRI shows that my bulging disc and herniated disc are completely gone.
As a forestry equipment operator since my youth, I began to feel, with forty years of work, severe pains in my lower back, knee, ankle and calf (burn), caused by an injury to three lumbar discs, a discarthrosis, a bulging and a herniated disc associated with a bilateral foraminal decrease / narrowing.
I had to walk with a cane or a walker.
Physiotherapy treatments have been unsuccessful. The orthopaedist who saw the results of my MRI told me that the only solution to my problem would be surgery.
Following my treatments at the HERNIE DISCALE Clinic, I had an MRI and the orthopaedic surgeon was amazed, saying, what happened? What did you do? What did you do? We can’t see anything of your hernia and bulging! This doctor congratulated me on my choice of treatment which allowed me to avoid the operation.
I even started carving maples again!

Chronic back pain, that’s the end of the cane.
I had been suffering from back pain for 15 years. I had trouble getting around, I had to use a cane. One day I saw an ad on TV about neurodiscal decompression without surgery, I made an appointment and I was received quickly and courteously. As of the third treatment, I walked freely and without cane. Today, a year and a half later, I still feel good. I appreciated the welcome, the listening and the professionalism of the staff.
Thanks to the HERNIE DISCALE Clinic and its team.

Herniated disc, bulging disc, back and sciatic nerve pain, sleep problems.
I had a herniated disc and two in the process of becoming one (bulges). I could hardly sleep, walk or sit. In the middle of a meal, I had to get up and walk. The pain in my leg was intolerable. I cried when I couldn’t take it anymore!
I met a neurologist and a doctor, they sent me home with morphine. I even did physiotherapy. Nothing did.
Until one day I saw an ad about neurodiscal decompression. It doesn’t change the world as they say, but it changed my life… !
Without Dr. Jean’s care, I wouldn’t be working, driving my car, holding my grandchildren in my arms. Thank you.

Severe herniated disc, back pain and sciatic nerves.
Caused by a herniated disc, for over 20 years, I suffered from atrocious back pain, lower back pain and sciatic nerve pain. Eight drugs a day didn’t even work and my pain was getting worse, I was struggling to work.
I must admit that the care at the HERNIE DISCALE Clinic has changed my life. Not only have my pains completely disappeared, but I have regained energy, quality of life and the pleasure of working.
They have the experience and high-tech equipment to correct our problem. A way to free Quebec’s emergency rooms!

For skeptics, proven effectiveness by MRI.
On July 9, 2013, an MRI showed that the cause of my pain was a circumferential disc bulge and a left posterolateral and foraminal protrusion in L5-S1. It was then that I made the decision to follow the 20 treatments (from August 19 to September 25, 2013) that were suggested to me at the HERNIE DISCALE Clinic.
NONE of the people who told me not to get treatment had ever visited the non-surgical neurodiscal decompression clinic, what were they based on?
What could be more tangible than comparative magnetic resonance to prove the effectiveness of the results? This is what I did in November 2013 and the circumferential bulge and the left posterolateral and foraminal protrusion in L5-S1 were all gone.
Do as I do, do not listen to the blablas, you will be the best judge of the effectiveness of care. Studies show that the results are 86%. In addition, the doctor reassesses you at the seventh visit and if there is no improvement, treatment is stopped. Yes, it only takes two weeks to check the effectiveness of this treatment.

Herniated disc in progress for years, result of treatments proven by MRI (magnetic resonance imaging).
Conclusion of my MRI report signed by Dr. Pierre Grondin MD, imaging performed at the Manicouagan Health Centre dated February 12, 2010, after my treatments at the HERNIE DISCALE Clinic:
“Compared to the previous examination performed on February 24, 2009, the herniated disc is eliminated.

A return to golf and skiing. I was happy to learn that I could benefit, very close to home, not only from the same equipment used in Quebec City, but from many others and with more services. All at a better price!
Three disc bulges, pinch and herniated disc, interfacetary osteoarthritis and bilateral spondylolysis.
I had to undergo neurodiscal decompression treatments in Quebec City a few years ago because this specialized equipment was not available in my region.
In February 2011, I had a recurrence of my unbearable back and sciatic nerve pain; it was then that I was informed of the existence of the HERNIE DISCALE Clinic in Mont-Joli.
I thank the HERNIE DISCALE Clinic team who, with their specialized equipment and personalized services, has allowed me to recover my health and quality of life.

Pinch with spreading disc, herniated disc, bulging disc. Spinal and foraminal stenosis. Degeneration, arthrosis and facettary hypertrophy. Sciatic nerve and back pain. Numbness.
For years I suffered from sciatic nerve pain, back pain and numbness in my right leg.
I tried everything: osteopathy, massage therapy and my doctor referred me to physiotherapy. Everything was without success for my spine.
I had a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the result showed, among other things:
L5-S1 : disc spreading and herniated disc. L4-L5 : spinal and foraminal stenosis, degeneration and facet arthrosis, discal spreading and antelisthesis. L3-L4 : pinching with disc spreading, facetary arthrosis, foraminal stenosis with facetary hypertrophy. L2-L3 : disc bulging and foraminal stenosis.
It was then that I consulted Dr. Marius Jean, following a neurodiscal decompression ad on television. During my first interview, he gave me a static and moving X-ray and read my magnetic resonance results. After discussion between us, he suggested a treatment plan that I agreed to follow.
Currently, I am happy and satisfied with the results obtained because I no longer have the pain from which I suffered, and I have regained a good quality of life.
I thank Dr. Jean very much for the effective treatments I received.

The end of a calvary. And he’s avoiding surgery!
My ordeal began in 1998 following a snowboard fall. Having already had a car accident at the age of nine when several lumbar vertebrae were fractured, leaving me unable to move for more than three months, I must say that my spine was already in a sorry state. Until 1998, I still managed to do well. Like many, I felt some pain from time to time, but nothing to stop me from working or enjoying my hobbies. But in March 1998, this fall awakened a terrible pain radiating in the buttock and left leg. MRIs, cortisone infiltrations, more and more powerful painkillers, prolonged absences from work and for quality of life follow one another, I don’t even dare talk about it anymore. I spent my nights in my chair watching movies at Super Écran, writhing in pain.
After several medical consultations, orthopaedists, neurosurgeons, physiotherapists, all come to the conclusion that surgery is my last resort. This operation is not 100% guaranteed and of course represents all the risks involved: infection, rejection, permanent paralysis, etc.. Nothing reassuring.
Having seen an advertisement on TV, I informed myself on the internet and I decided to make an appointment with the HERNIE DISCALE Clinic. I thought the costs were pretty high. But if I compare it to the amount I paid for a snowmobile, motorcycle, ATV, cruise or whatever, I thought why not invest in my health and make a profit afterwards. Of course, I had some doubts in my mind, but I said to myself: “If it works, there is no price to start living again”. I had nothing more to lose…
At my first appointment, after the evaluation of my x-rays, the doctor comes to the conclusion that there is something to do for me. The further I went in the process, the better I was. I was able to eliminate several medications that caused unwanted side effects. Little by little, I started to walk good distances again, sleep in my bed and find day after day a quality of life that I did not hope any more. I started my work back gradually in October 2010 and full time since November 2010 without taking a single day of illness because of my back. I feel a few little discomforts from time to time, but nothing comparable to what I experienced before.
For me, neurodiscal decompression without surgery has changed my life and that of my family. Even my friends just can’t believe how much I can do today. Thank you to the HERNIE DISCALE Clinic team. When we think that there is nothing more to do for our spinal problems, why not make a small detour to at least have an evaluation of our condition?

Caused by a herniated disc and osteoarthritis, he ended seven years of numbness in his leg, extending from his lower back to his foot.
I am 71 years old and I have worked as a lumberjack; in my work, there have been many incidents. I gradually developed pain in my lower back and right leg, accompanied by numbness from the lower back to the foot included; it was as if the sciatic nerve was too short; ninety minutes seated and I had to go to bed; I could no longer force myself and walked in slow motion, because just putting my two feet on the ground increased the pain.
Over the years, I had multiple infiltrations in my lower back, infiltrations that were no longer able to relieve the pain; my doctor told me that he could do nothing more for me and that I had to learn to endure my pain. Not wanting to suffer the rest of my life, I made an appointment.
Living more than two hours from Mont-Joli, one or two nights a week, I stayed in a motel not far from the clinic and I returned home the rest of the week. I was incredibly surprised to see that the majority of the people who stayed at this motel came from very far away (North Shore, New Brunswick and a little everywhere in Gaspésie) happy to be treated at the HERNIE DISCALE Clinic.
Thank you for your welcome and your good care, because today I am enjoying life. I can say that 90% of my pain is gone and the numbness in my leg is over.

It was then that I consulted Dr. Jean and I saw my problems diminished.
I had health problems that ruined my quality of life; I couldn’t wear a belt on my pants, or a stocking in my feet, or a wallet in my pockets, or sit on a chair for more than 5 minutes and I always had my legs caught like a tourniquet!
I saw doctors and took medicine, massage therapists for relaxation, “ramancheurs” and it was worse! Time passed and evil increased instead of regressing. It was then that I consulted Dr. Jean and I saw my problems diminished.
No problem, I wear a belt to my pants and socks; I can sit without having a sore back.
I have regained my quality of life, I feel fit and I owe it to Dr. Jean.

I thank God for putting him in my way.
After suffering for more than four years, from a terrible pain on my right side of my back that prevented me from sleeping in the same position for more than 20 to 25 minutes. Changing positions was unbearable. I met three different doctors giving me three different diagnoses and accompanied by an anti-inflammatory prescription to always come back with the same ever increasing pain.
So I decided to listen to a friend’s advice and went to see Dr. Jean. I thank God for putting it in my path, because it was a success.
Several months later, I had to go to the emergency room for swelling behind my head. Despite giving me two injections on each side and keeping me under observation for eight hours, I had to spend three weeks without being able to support my head following this operation. Again, it was Dr. Jean who cured my neck problem.
I can’t imagine the cost I would have imposed on society if I hadn’t gone to see him. Make sure that we can continue to choose for ourselves the person we trust and who does not cost the government a penny!
