Disc Decompression Therapy


What is DTS Treatment?
DTS is a non-surgical treatment to help in the management of serious low back/leg pain. DTS treatment is directed at relieving pressure on structures that may be a major source of pain. It can relieve the pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative discs, facet syndrome, sciatica and headaches. DTS helps relieve pain through decompression of lumbar or cervical discs and joints (that is unloading due to distraction and positioning). This cyclical painless stretching reduces pressure and promotes blood and fluid flow. This helps improve healing naturally.

Can DTS Work For You?
DTS treatment may provide the relief you’re looking for. Much of the common cause of back and neck pain is mechanical compression. Decompression is a direct, intuitive remedy - and unlike other treatments it can focus its effect at the source of the pain.

What about Pinched Nerves?
Damaged discs can cause limb pain or numbness in two ways – they can simply “refer” pain or they can pressure a nearby nerve root. True “pinched nerves” may create leg or arm pain but little back or neck pain. They are often a more serious problem and may take additional time and therapy to resolve.
