Offering Relief to Patients Suffering from Herniated and Degenerated Disc Disease
Herniated and degenerated discs are among the most common causes of lower back pain. The DTS® (Decompression Therapy System) is specifically designed to treat these types of conditions.
It is a medical fact that damaged inter-vertebral discs seldom heal, since they are under constant pressure. DTS® tables use clinically proven principles to relieve pressure on vital structures of the lumbar and cervical spine and spinal nerves, reducing pressure inside the discs.
Decompression is designed to comfortably and accurately increase intersegmental disc space, providing non-surgical decompression of the lumbar and cervical discs.
The objective of decompression is to reduce the pressure inside the disc and facilitate the transfer of fluids, nutrients and oxygen back inside the disc. Reduction of the pressure inside the disc can result in retraction of bulging or herniated discs, and welcome relief of nerve pressure. Small tears in the disc can also undergo repair, and fluids and nutrients can be introduced into the nucleus to reverse degeneration and collapse resulting from injury. Rehydration of the disc nucleus can restore disc height, relieving pressure on the inflamed facet joints.
DTS® is not limited to just treating symptoms. Instead, it is designed to alleviate the underlying problems that cause low back and neck pain and facilitate the natural healing of the discs.
The chiropractors on staff at Lakes Area Health Center are able to assess whether you are an appropriate candidate for spinal decompression therapy.
