Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a Non-Surgical treatment of neck and low back conditions performed on a specially designed table in a face up, face down or side lying position.  Clinical consideration and your comfort are used in deciding which position will be best for you.  We may begin in one position but in later sessions it may be necessary to change positions.  You will remain fully dressed during the treatment though we recommend wearing loose fitting clothes, and removal of your belt and objects from your pockets.

You will be comfortably positioned on the table and fitted with a wrap-around harness.  This restraint is what allows the unloading of the spine and discs by the traction motor.  Your position on the table, the harness, and angle of the gentle distraction allows for accurate and focused treatment to the affected disc.  Once comfortable on the DTS the computer controlled traction device is programmed to deliver a gentle stretching force to the spinal vertebra.  This force is delivered directly to the harness system.  The DTS system applies the gentle force then releases it approximately every minute throughout the session.  The total treatment time is usually less than 20 minutes and often just 10 minutes initially.  Most patients report simply feeling a subtle and gentle stretching at their lower back or around their hips.  Since DTS Therapy is a comfort-based procedure, patients usually report a sense of relief and relaxation during the session.  Many patients even fall to sleep.
