Spinal Decompression

We are pleased to offer Spinal Decompression Therapy – the latest advancement in the treatment of back pain, disc herniation and more.

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
  • SCIATICA
  • HEADACHES

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.
