Decompression Traction System (DTS)
Say Goodbye to Sciatica, Slipped Discs and Spinal Pain!
The Decompression Traction System (DTS) is used for spinal decompression therapy, an advanced form of spinal traction to relieve pain and improve healing. Spinal decompression therapy is an effective treatment for:
- Herniated or Bulging Discs
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Post-surgical Patients
- Facet Syndrome
- Spinal Stenosis
The Decompression Traction System is a specialized treatment table which is computerized and software driven, providing a smooth pull that overcomes muscle spasm.
The specificity of the programmes has been shown to effectively reduce pain associated with disc herniations.
Back pain affects up to 90% of the population and is the single most common cause for seeing a doctor after the common cold.
The most common causes are slipped discs and spinal stenosis or combinations of the above.
Previously surgery seemed like the only solution as other interventions seem to give temporary relief.
Computerized DTS traction gives amazing results to those with back problems and research has shown that there is a reduction in the disc bulge post treatment that is visible on MRI months after the treatment has been completed.
Studies have shown that pain relief for slipped discs was up to 85% and pain relief for those with spinal stenosis was up to 75% success rates, similar to surgical outcomes.
Spinal Decompression Treatment Plans
Once diagnosed with an MRI, then an effective treatment plan can be established based on your clinical assessment and examination findings.
This will usually be a mix of physical therapies aimed at reducing inflammation and chiropractic adjustments where indicated as well as the DTS treatments.
DTS Treatments are pain free and so comfortable that some fall asleep however as the treatment stimulates circulation, there may be discomfort experienced post treatment and patients are encouraged to use other clinical modalities like ultrasound and electro-stimulation with ice / heat packs.
