Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal Decompression Therapy (DTS) is a leading non-surgical alternative for disc related syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine. DTS therapy gently stretches the spine, relieving pressure from the discs, joints and muscular tissues, while improving blood flow to the injured area. You will experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation over a period of 8-12 minutes. Most patients feel pain relief with 4-5 treatments.
We highly recommend doing a spinal strengthening program along with decompression. The latest research shows that doing a regular program of home exercises helps to promote healing of injured discs. Our doctors will help you get started on core stabilization exercises to improve your core muscle strength that is so important to spinal health.
Creating a home-based exercise program for a healthy back can involve the use of resistance bands, a balance ball, and simple stretches. We can help you progress to doing light aerobic activity such as walking or riding an exercise bike. Our desire is to help you return to an active lifestyle without chronic back pain.
