The DTS Decompression Therapy
Our office is dedicated to offering the latest, state-of-the-art therapies for treating pain in the low back and neck, sciatica, pinched nerves and bulging or degenerative disc diseases. We believe DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy to be the most advanced, non-surgical and pain free alternative.
DTS Spinal Decompression is a leading non-surgical alternative for disc-related syndroms of the lumbar and cervical spine. DTS Therapy uses simple, yet sophisticated, FDA registered equipment manufactured by the leading rehabilitation equipment manufacturer in the US, The Chattanooga Group. Chattanooga's Triton DTS Decompression Traction System is the most popular decompression system with over 1,200 installations worldwide.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is performed on this specially designed table in either a face up or face down position. Clinical consideration and your comfort are used in deciding which position will be best for you. You will remain fully dressed during the treatment and we suggest wearing loose fitting clothing. You will be comfortably positioned on the table and fitted with a wrap-around harness. This restraint is what allows the unloading of the spine and discs by the traction motor. Your position on the table, the harness, and the angle of the gentle distraction allows for accurate and focused treatment to the affected area. Once comfortable on the DTS table, the computer controlled traction device is programmed to deliver a gentle stretching force to the spinal vertebra. This force is delivered directly to the harness system. The DTS system applies the gentle force then releases it approximately every minute throughout the session.
The total treatment time is usually around 20 minutes. Most patients feel relief with as few as 6-10 treatments. It is important however to remember that the absence of pain does not mean that your discs and spine are healed, therefore it is critical that you maintain the treatment schedule prescribed by Dr. Laycock. Since the DTS is a comfort-based procedure, patients usually report a sense of relief and relaxation during the session. Many patients even fall to sleep!
