How Does DTS Spinal Decompression Work?
1. What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy technology is designed with clinical consideration and your comfort in mind. You will be in a comfortable position and remain fully dressed during the treatment.
Once comfortable, the DTS computer controlled traction device is programmed to deliver a gentle stretching force to the spinal vertebra. This force is delivered directly to a harness system. The DTS system applies the gentle force then releases it approximately every minute throughout the session. DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy helps with herniated or bulging discs which requires no surgery or medication to get relief of pain in the back, leg, neck or arm.
2. What does it do?
Imbibing the Discs. The gentle stretching and relaxing of the spine fosters a phenomenon called "imbitition". In the simplest terms, this is the way a normal disc gets nutrition. This pumping action promotes nutrition intake into the discs, something often lost in damaged and degenerative disc conditions. In healthy discs, imbibition occurs naturally with daily motions and body positions and accounts for the increase of disc thickness in the morning and decrease at night.
A disc with poor imbibition, few nutrients and hydration, is more likely to become injured and painful. Stretching, or tractioning the spine in a controlled, comfortable manner can help re-establish a more normal imbibitions. This can re-supply the disc with nutrients and blood contact that help the disc heal from the inside out. Also the dramatic decrease of pressure in the disc (decompression) can foster the drawing in of a bulge and help take pressure off a "pinched" spinal nerve.
3. Who can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Possible qualified candidates for the therapy are someone with Ruptured Discs, Spinal Stenosis, Sciatica, Facet Syndrome, Failed Surgery, and Degeneration / Arthritis.
4. Can it help me?
Most patients feel significant pain reduction in as few as five DTS Therapy treatments according to the sciences and our experiences. Spinal Decompression Therapy has very good success rate.
5. Is the Spinal Decompression Therapy painful?
The Spinal Decompression Therapy is painless procedure. Most patients report simply feeling a subtle and gentle stretching at their lower back or around their hips. DTS Therapy is a comfort-based procedure, patients usually report a sense of relief and relaxation during the session. Many patients even fall asleep.
