DTS Spinal Decompression

DTS Spinal Decompression

Safe, effective and cost-effective non-surgical relief from back or neck pain.

If you're suffering from a herniated disc and chiropractic adjustments/therapy have not yielded sufficient benefit, you should ask your doctor if you might be a candidate for spinal decompression therapy.

Spinal Decompression Therapy using our DTS table is a safe and effective treatment for pain without the risks associated with surgery, anesthesia, infection, injections, or prescription medication.  As you imagine, decompression therapy is rapidly gaining popularity due to the exceptional results treating chronic back pain without surgery.

What is DTS Spinal Decompression?

It's a nonsurgical, traction-based treatment for herniated or bulging discs in the neck or lower back.  Anyone who has back, neck or leg pain caused by degenerated or damaged discs may be helped by DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy.  Specific conditions that may be helped by this procedure include herniated or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica, facet syndrome, spondylosis or even failed back surgery.

Many patients, some with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - documented disc herniations have achieved "good" to "excellent" results after spinal decompression therapy.

The computerized tracton head on the decompression table or machine is the key to the therapy's effectiveness.  The preprogrammed patterns for ramping up and down the amount of axial traction eliminate muscle guarding and permit decompression to occur at hte disc level.  This creates a negative pressure within the disc, allowing the protruded or herniated portion to be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, which permits healing to occur.

Your specific treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after your examination.  Based on research and my clinical experience, the best results are achieved with sessions over a six-week period.  To reduce inflammation and assist the healing process, supporting structures sometimes are treated with passive therapies (ice/heat/muscle stimulation), chiropractic adjustments (when indicated) and/or active rehabilitaiton in order to strengthen the spinal musculature.

Spinal decompression therapy has saved many people from spinal surgery.  If you are suffering from a degenerated or herniated disc, I encourage you to explore safe and effective spinal decompression therapy before risking surgery.  The rational for treating a herniated disc without resorting to surgery has research support on its side: According to a recent study in the Journal of American Medical Association, surgery is no more effective than non-invasive treatments, including chiropractic care, for patients with lumbar disc herniation causing sciatica.

There are many spinal decompression systems in use today, most of which work equally well.  The cost for 20 sessions can be as high as $5,000 at some facilities; we believe spinal decompression should be more affordable, so call today for a free consultaiton and a tour of the DTS Spinal Decompression Table.

Not familiar with some of the terminology.  Don't worry: Here's a brief explanation of what these terms mean in relation to your spine.

Anulus Fibrosis:  The tough outer ring of the vertebral disc; it encases the nucleus pulposus (see below) within the disc.

Facet Syndrome:  An irritation of one or more of the joints on the back of the spinal vertebrae, which compromise the spinal column.

Herniated Disc:  Displacement of the center of a vertebral disc through a crack in the outer layer, Disc herniation can put pressure on spinal nerves and cause pain.

Muscle Guarding: Muscle spasming, often in response to a painful stimulus.

Nucleus Pulposus: A gel-like substance within each intervertebral disc, surrounded by the annulus fibrosus.

Sciatica: Pain in the lower back, buttocks, hips, or adjacent anatomical structures, frequently attributable to spinal dysfunction.

Spinal Stenosis: Narrowing of the spine at one or more of three locations; in the center of the spine, where nerves branch from the spine, or in the space between vertebrae.  This puts pressure on spinal nerves and can cause pain.

Spondylosis: Otherwise known as spinal arthritis, spondylosis is a degenerative condition in which spinal discs weaken, particularly with age.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "PAIN FREE! Over the years I have been to several different chiropractors. As a child, I was exposed to chiropractic care through my mother. Having arthritis, chiropractic was the one place she could get relief without drugs. Even so, not all chiropractors are equal and that was never made more clear to me than when I met Dr. Roy. Having complained of lower back pain to a former chiropractor, I was never able to get any relief. It wasn't until I started being treated by Dr. Roy that I was able to go weeks without pain. I even had a manual physical therapist tell me I had scarred tissue and would never truly be pain free. Dr. Roy's methods were new to me and I was a little skeptical at first, but after a month or so of treatment I was able to go for several weeks without ANY pain! I am a believer now and I will be coming back as often as I can!!!"

  • "THE MIRACLE DOCTOR! A friend recommended Dr. Roy to me because I could hardly walk and I was in great pain. He took x-rays and treated me immediately and it really help right away. That was in 2019. He saw me twice a week for many months before I went to once a week. He has educated me on many different situations concerning my back and that's why I call him "The Miracle Doctor.""

  • "ALMOST AS GOOD AS NEW AFTER SEVERE CAR ACCIDENT AFTER 2 SESSIONS 5* After decades of chiropractic care, I thought I'd received the best possible outcome for my neck injury from a fall further exacerbated by a severe car accident.
    Little did I know that in just two sessions Dr. Roy would have me almost as good as new!
    Thanks again for hearing my complaint and knowing exactly how to adjust T1/T2/C7 areas on my neck for instant, long lasting relief."

  • "NO MORE MIGRAINES 5* - Dr. Roy has added a massage therapist and I'm so excited to have that available for my overall wellness care. Dr. Roy always seems to put his finger exactly where I'm needing an adjustment and with his upper cervical adjustments, I've gone from 4 migraines a month to less than one a year! I haven't felt better."

They were able to take me in for an appointment the very next day and put 2 ribs back in place. Besides that, I love the employees there. They are so refreshing and kind and I highly trust them with my back."
