DTS Spinal Health Therapy Non-Surgical Alternative For Back and Neck Pain
What is DTS Spinal Health Therapy?
DTS Spinal Health Therapy is an FDA cleared treatment that uses a special table and computer to help in the management of serious back and neck pain. This unique therapy is directed at relieving pressure on structures that may be the source of your pain. It can relieve pain associated with:
- BULGING DISC
- HERNIATED DISC
- DEGENERATIVE DISC
- FACET SYNDROME
- (REFERRED PAIN)
DTS Spinal Health therapy gives you pain relief through decompression of the lumbar and cervical disc and joints, (that is unloading due to dynamic distraction and positioning). This cyclical, painless setting reduces pressure, promotes blood and fluid and improves healing naturally. 25 years of research combining efforts of doctors and therapist has lead to the development of this technology, creating a technically advanced device and a safe cost effective alternative to invasive treatments.
IF OTHER METHODS HAVE FAILED….CAN DTS SPINAL HEALTH THERAPY WORK FOR YOU?
A common cause of back and neck pain is mechanical compression. DTS Spinal Health Therapy is a direct, intuitive remedy. Unlike other treatments it can focus its effect at the source of your pain. After treatment Dr. Shea will recommend specific exercises designed to help you regain control and strength of muscles and stabilize your trunk. Clinical studies suggest using decompressive therapy gives you substantial pain relief with in a few sessions for most patients.
"YOU GET THE PAIN RELIEF YOU WANT"
WHAT ABOUT PINCHED NERVES?(Radiating pain in the extremities)
Damaged disc can cause extremity pain, (arms and legs), in two ways - they can simply "refer" pain or they can pressure a nearby nerve root. "Pinched" nerves create little or no back or neck pain. They are often a more serious problem and may take more time to resolve. Since your health is our concern Dr. Shea will refer to other specialists if he can not help your condition.

WHEN YOU WANT PAIN RELIEF, CHOOSE THE DTS SPINAL HEALTH SYSTEM
The Adjustor™ is a hand held mechanical adjustment device used in place of the physicians hands to reproduce a controlled adjustment to the spinal segments and extremities.
The Erchonia Variable Adjustor is a portable, self-contained unit offers inherent flexibility. The variable pulse feature offers the practitioner the option of selecting a "constant" or "pulse" wave.
The mechanical device is best suited for patients that are young or elderly that have weaker bone structure. It allows the physician to treat patients that have a inherent fear of being adjusted because of the popping noise, (cavitation), or tenses up during a normal adjusting procedure.
If you have any concerns about regular chiropractic adjustments. Ask Dr. Shea about the benifits of the "Erchonia Adjustor" we have found many patients that were afraid to be adjusted found mechanical treatment effective, comfortable and long lasting.
At Shea Chiropractic PC, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Cookeville chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
