If you’re like many of the patients we see today, you suffer from back pain, neck pain, or hip and leg pain. And chances are you’ve probably already tried many different treatments, like pain pills, injections, rest, stretches, exercises, physical rehab, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, and maybe even surgery. And if you’re like some people, nothing’s worked. You still suffer with pain and your quality of life is not what it used to be. This is not surprising because some people just don’t respond to traditional pain relieving treatments for their back pain. In my search for a better way to help patients with back and neck pain, I came across a new treatment system for the back and neck. It is safe, drugless, and comfortable. It’s called spinal decompression. I’ve found spinal decompression to be an excellent treatment for the discs and low back. I’ve personally been able to help hundreds of patients get out of pain and enjoy a pain free lifestyle.
What you need to know is that most back pain is caused by injury or damage to the discs. The discs are the cushions in between all of the spinal bones. When there is damage to the discs, it can lead to pain, sciatica, muscle stiffness and a host of other symptoms. The problem has always been finding a way to heal discs without doing something invasive like injections or surgery. Spinal decompression solves that problem. Spinal decompression allows you to eliminate pain and heal your back without surgery or injections. Let’s talk a little bit more about the discs in your spine. Unlike other structures in your body, discs don’t have a good blood supply, so once they are damaged, they don’t heal well. Once a disc gets injured, torn, or starts to degenerate, it loses its hydration and starts to become brittle and dry. This leads to further damage and pain.

The DTS spinal decompression system that we have in our office allows you to gently and safely put tension in the lower back or neck to create what’s called a “negative pressure” inside the injured discs. This negative pressure creates a vacuum effect that actually draws the bulging or “slipped” disc material back to its normal position. It also brings fluid into the disc to help it re-hydrate and heal.
Unlike other treatments, spinal decompression actually makes the discs healthier. Medication and injections only cover up the pain but do nothing to actually heal the spine and discs. Spinal decompression has been a great addition to my practice. For more information, call our office and schedule a free consultation and office tour. I’ll show you the DTS decompression table, we can talk about the problems you are having, and I’ll personally answer any questions that you have. I’d love to help!
