What is DTS Therapy?

Today we hear and see a lot of people suffer due to lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, neck pain, a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, as well as syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine. Our life style and food habits are definitely to be blamed. Surgery has so far been the only permanent solution. The pain involved in undergoing a surgical procedure, the costs involved, and the side effects of painkillers and other medicines need not be elaborated here as we are all aware of it. Well, why think of the bad when you can easily get relieved of this debilitating pain without surgery. You could try DTS therapy a non-surgical procedure.

A patient undergoes DTS therapy with the help of a simple but sophisticated equipment manufactured in the USA by a leading rehabilitation equipment manufacturer. Disc-related syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine can be treated with the help of DTS therapy. The advances in this field have lit a lamp amidst the dark for millions suffering from the debilitating pain of damaged or degenerated discs and pinched nerves.

DTS Therapy Treatment

The technique behind DTS therapy is to gently stretch the spine, relieving pressure from the discs, joints, and muscular tissues, while enhancing the body’s natural healing process. The treatment is given for a short duration, mostly for an hour or less, and you can remain fully clothed while you undergo the treatment. Improvements, or rather reduction in pain, can be experienced within a few sessions.

A specially designed table is used for this purpose. You can either lie with your face down or up. Your physical condition, clinical considerations, and your comfort are taken into account to decide the position in which you are made to lie down for the treatment. If you are not comfortable, you could always seek the advice of your chiropractor with regard to change of position. It would be best if you could wear some loose-fitting clothes and remove your belt and all other objects you might have from your pocket during the treatment.

You can experience relief from pain as the gentle distractive forces create decompression, i.e., unloading due to distraction and proper positioning, and improve blood flow and important nutrient exchange to the injured area thereby soothing the affected area and providing lower back pain relief, sciatica pain relief, neck pain relief, and also alleviating the pain of a pinched nerve.

During the therapy, it is very important that you are safe and comfortable. The decompression device provides several positioning options. With the help of your chiropractor identify the most comfortable position for you. You will be able to achieve the ultimate objective of complete rehabilitation of your discs and spine only if you are 100% comfortable. The treatment consists of several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which gently graduate to a peak over a period of several minutes giving you gentle relief from pain. One session could be for less than 20 minutes. The effect of the treatment is felt by the patients within 6 to 10 treatments. Even though there is relief from pain, this does not mean that you are completely cured. This is only a temporary relief from pain. If you want a permanent solution then you should stick to the treatment protocol prescribed by your chiropractor.

By now you must have understood that this a simple pain-free alternative to surgery which can reduce or even eliminate back and neck pain. If you or somebody you know is suffering from chronic, debilitating, low back or neck pain, consult a chiropractor and assess if DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy could provide a solution for you.
