Spinal Decompresion Therapy / Decompression Spinal Therapy




DTS Therapy is an Alternative to Surgery

At our North Wales Chiropractic Center, we believe don't have to live in debilitating pain. Whether you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, neck pain, a herniated or bulging disc, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, Spinal Decompression Therapy may be for you.

This gentle,non-surgical therapy can provide lower back pain relief, sciatica pain relief, and is a state-of-the-art therapy for neck pain relief, bulging or degenerative disc disease, and lumbar pain.

The gentle distractive forces of the DTS therapy create a decompression of the spine with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning, to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area. You will experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes.

Therapy sessions typically last 20-40 minutes, 3 times a week for 1 month, transitioning from passive to active treatments as you respond, with most patients feeling pain relief with as few as 6-10 treatments. Most patients are released from treatment after 8-10 weeks.

A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization muscles is a vital part of Decompression Therapy at Montgomery County Chiropractic Center. Exercise and adjunctive therapies such as kinetic excercises, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and cold therapy can assist in rehabilitation of these structures. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc, but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back and neck.

Regular home exercise and periodic visits to our office will help in maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence. Clinical results of this type of therapy have been effective in over 75% of the patients treated and most patients find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments utilizing Spinal Decompression Therapy.
