DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy

DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This will take pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine.

Proponents of this treatment say that over time, negative pressure from this therapy may cause bulging or herniated disks to retract. That can take pressure off the nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.

Decompression Traction System (DTS) Spinal Decompression Therapy is a leading non-surgical alternative for disc related syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine.

• Protruding, prolapsed, herniated and bulging lumbar discs
• Degenerative disc disease
• Sciatica
• Facet syndrome
• Joint pain


DTS treatments use decompression, the unloading due to distraction and proper position of the spine through traction, to decompress the vertebral structures of the spine. This gentle process separates the vertebral structures, unloads the spine, and allows the spine increased nutrition and blood contact to help the spinal structures heal.

Therapy sessions typically last less than thirty minutes, and most patients feel pain relief with as few as 6 to 10 treatments. It is important to remember however, that pain subsiding does not infer the discs and spine are fully healed, as full recovery of ligaments, tendons, discs and other structures with poor blood perfusion occurs over a longer time span, so it is critical patients follow the treatment protocol prescribed by their practitioners in order to achieve the full value of DTS Therapy.
