DTS therapy is a gentle, non-surgical therapy that provides relief for lower back pain, sciatica pain, neck pain, a pinched nerve, bulging or degenerative disc disease, and lumbar pain. DTS therapy is used to decompress the spine to allow improved blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area. This occurs in a series of stretch and relaxation that takes only a number of minutes to reach its peak.
Sessions of DTS therapy are typically less than 20 minutes and take place three times a week for a period one month. Most patients feel relief after 6 treatments and are usually released after 8 weeks.
It is vital that patients of DTS therapy undergo a complete program that targets the function and stabilization of their muscles. This can include other therapies such as heat, muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and cold therapy. The goal of the entire process is not only to heal the disc, but to also enhance control of the back and neck as well as overall muscular control.
Over 75% of patients have found DTS therapy effective and usually experience long term results. Regular exercise at home and a continuation of periodic visits to your chiropractor will help ensure and maintain your spinal health as well as reduce the possibility of pain reoccurrence.
