Do you suffer with low back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel? Have you been told you need back surgery? Decompression Therapy is an effective treatment for these conditions. It is very affordable and less expensive than surgery.

Do you have a herniated disc, multiple herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, or any other type of spinal problem? Is your doctor suggesting surgery, Pain Management, or Physical Therapy? Have you tried Chiropractic and just could not get enough relief? Come see us and try out the Decompressive Traction System (DTX).

Decompression Therapy is the hottest new therapeutic device for compression and disc syndromes!

The Decompression-Reduction-Stabilization therapy is an effective treatment for:

  • Herniated Disc
  • Disc Degenerative
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Post-surgical Patients
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Research indicates the disc is responsible for a significant number of incidents of back pain, leg pain, neck and arm pain syndromes. Compression increases intradiscal pressure leading to annular compromise and possible extrusion of nuclear material.

Since the disc is an avascular structure, it doesn’t receive fresh blood and oxygen with every beat of the heart. It requires “diffusion” created by motion and ‘decompression’ to restore nutrients and enhance healing.

Our clinical findings suggest Decompression will create a relatively quick initial response. Patients who will do well tend to feel a sense of relief (which can be direct pain cessation or a centralization of pain and/or reduction to an ache or stiffness) within six sessions. Full relief, if attainable through this passive treatment will usually be in 8-12 sessions. (Occasionally a ‘stubborn’ pain syndrome may continue to improve slowly over 15+ sessions though this is not the norm). Often patients will be treated 4-6 sessions and notice enough relief to allow active rehab to begin. Their Decompression may continue (pre or post rehab depending on the methods chosen) for 4-6 further sessions before discontinuing or reducing the frequency.

Typical frequency is 3 times per week. The extent and seriousness of the symptoms will determine if more than three sessions per week should be utilized. Our experience suggests Decompression is also an excellent supportive or maintenance treatment for those cases where pain relief is marked but prone to exacerbations.
