WHAT IS SPINAL DECOMPRESSION?

 

 

 

CHATTANOOGA DISTRACTIVE TRACTION SYSTEM, (DTS) THERAPY


Chattanooga Distractive Traction System, (DTS) Therapy

The Chattanooga Distractive Traction System (DTS) used in our clinic represents the latest development in computerized cyclic decompressive therapy for injured or damaged lumbar and cervical discs.


Because discs have been shown to be a predominate site of pain, treating the discs as directly as possible makes sense. The DTS system is a comprehensive program of the newest traction techniques along with targeted "core" stabilization exercises. DTS therapy creates a controlled unloading of the vertebra to decrease disc pressure thus increasing blood and nutrient exchange. This exchange of fluids is something the disc desperately needs to help it from the inside out. The specially designed decompression table slowly and gently separates to releive the pressure on spinal nerves and in many cases suctions displaced disc material back into a more central, proper position away from sensitive tissues. Although is is hard to predict the future, it is our experience that most patients experience long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments.
