DTS Therapy is an Alternative to Surgery
Spinal decompression therapy is a chiropractic treatment that focuses on energizing muscles around the spine to reduce pain and strengthen muscles. The therapy is focused on ailments of the spine, specifically degenerative spinal discs that cause the patient to experience pain in the neck, back and waist areas. This type of therapy ensures that they never have to live in pain again.
DTS involves some exercises that are specifically designed to make sure that the area around the spine is pressure free thus ensuring easier movements of the body. There are several stretch exercises as well as circular movements of the waist and massage therapy that is done to ensure blood flow is sufficient in the spine. There are also exercises that allow the nutrients from the blood to be sufficiently distributed in the spinal cord to make the spine stronger.
The exercises are done a few times a week for about 20 minutes. When a patient begins the exercises, they will start at a slower pace then gradually increase the number of exercises done per day as well as the intensity of those exercises. The patients are encouraged to be consistent with their treatments which should begin to work within a month after they begin therapy.
Exercises should be done consistently to ensure the discs are repaired. Skipping therapy for a few sessions could cause the progress that a patient has had to stop, and this leads to the pain reappearing. Typical treatments usually go on for eight weeks. Within this time the therapist will decide if a patient should reduce or maintain the number of sessions they have.
It is crucial that a visit to the therapist is adhered to monitor the progress of the DTS therapy. This is what ensures that the problem will not recur. DTS has been proven to help many patients suffering from degenerative disc diseases.
