SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY
The Latest Technology in
Affordable Non-Surgical Relief
from Back, Neck, Disc, Leg and Arm Pain
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 (Decompressive Traction System) Spinal Decompression Therapy to be one of the most advanced, non-surgical and pain-free alternative. Call today to see if DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy is for you!
There are a number of spinal decompression machines presently used in the United States. After significant research, Weston Medical Rehab & Wellness has chosen to use the Triton DTS machine manufactured by Chattanooga, Inc., the premier manufacturer of physical therapy machines.
The gentle distractive forces of the Triton DTS creates decompression, the unloading due to distraction and proper positioning, to improve blood flow and important nutrient exchange to the injured area. DTS Therapy gently stretches the spine, relieving pressure from the discs, joints and muscular tissues, while enhancing the body's natural healing process.
Your comfort and safety are of primary importance during DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy. Therefore, unlike any other decompression device, you have several positioning options. Only if you're 100% comfortable will you be able to achieve the ultimate objective of complete rehabilitation of your discs and spine. During DTS Therapy, you'll experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which gently graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes.
Therapy sessions typically last less than 20 minutes, and most patients feel pain relief with as few as 6-10 treatments. It is important to remember however, that pain subsiding does not infer that your discs and spine are healed, so it's critical that patients stick with the treatment protocol prescribed by their practitioners in order to achieve the full value of DTS Therapy.
DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy is a pain-free alternative that has shown a very high rate of success at reducing or even eliminating back and neck pain. If you suffer from chronic, debilitating, low back or neck pain, you owe it to yourself to call our office TODAY, or make an appointment RIGHT NOW online to see if you're a candidate for DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy.

3 Phases of DTS Therapy
Phase 1: The Treatment begins
DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy is performed on a 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. We may begin in one position but in later sessions it may be necessary to change positions. You will remain fully dressed during the treatment though we recommend wearing loose fitting clothes, and removal of your belt and objects from your pockets.
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 gentle distraction allows for accurate and focused treatment to the affected disc. Once comfortable on the DTS, the computer controlled traction 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 less than 18 minutes and often just 10 minutes initially. Most patients report simply feeling a subtle and gentle stretching at their lower back or around their hips. Since DTS Therapy is a comfort-based procedure, patients usually report a sense of relief and relaxation during the session. Many patients even fall asleep.
The gentle stretching and relaxing of the spine fosters a phenomenon called "imbibition." In the simplest of terms, this is the way a normal disc gets nutrition. This pumping action promotes nutrition intake into the discs, something often lost in damaged and degenerative disc conditions. In healthy discs, imbibition occurs naturally with daily motions and body positions and accounts for the increase of disc thickness in the morning and decrease at night. A disc with poor imbibition, fewer nutrients and hydration, is more likely to become injured and painful. Stretching, or tractioning the spine in a controlled, comfortable manner can help re-establish a more normal imbibition. This can re-supply the disc with nutrients and blood contact that help the disc heal from inside out. Also the dramatic decrease of pressure in the disc (decompression) can foster the drawing in of a bulge and help take pressure off a "pinched" spinal nerve.
Phase 2: Stabilization of Structure
Pain is now under control and we now must rehabilitate the structures supporting the disc. Most patients feel significant pain reduction in as a few as 5 DTS Therapy treatments. That however does not mean the healing process is complete, or that your pain won't return. During Phase II of your DTS Therapy treatments, our office will prescribe a series of rehabilitative measures in order to more fully heal your discs, and keep the pain from returning. Most low back sufferers have two compounding problems that have contributed to their disc injury and limited their natural healing abilities.
-Decreased Spine Flexibility
-Poor Muscle Control
A program of focused rehabilitative exercise, with Biofeedback, may begin during or after your DTS Therapy course of treatment. Our rehabilitation program involves several clinically effective yet simple, pain-free activities including Biofeedback. Biofeedback allows you to monitor and control spinal motion and re-claim proper spinal movement patterns. Strengthening the muscles that support the spine, and regaining endurance in them, is also vital for spinal health.
All the body systems must work in concert for optimum health health so nutritional and lifestyle advise may be given as well as an at-home exercise program. We can't over emphasize the importance of the at-home exercises. What you do at home is integral to the overall success we have. Studies show consistent stabilization and endurance exercises control back pain and reduce injury. At what point you start the exercise program is a function of your pain and overall progress based on your findings.
Phase 3: Support of Muscular System
During Phase III, we'll structure an in-office and home-based exercise program that will help to bring your spine back to full health. This exercise program may include in-office resistance training, at home stabilizer exerciser and resistance training and other "core" exercises.
Regular and consistent home-based exercise in one of the keys to long-term relief. We have found through experience the simple home-based exercises we prescribe are most effective. Introduction to the low tech movement exercises you can do to speed the healing process are one of the most important parts of the DTS Therapy System.
