DTS/Decompression

DTS Therapy 
DTS Therapy is an Alternative to Surgery. 

You don't have to live in debilitating pain. Whether you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, neck pain, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, as well as syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine, DTS Therapy may be for you. 

This gentle, non-surgical therapy can provide lower back pain relief, sciatica pain relief, and is a state-of-the-art therapy for neck pain relief, bulging or degenerative disc disease, and lumbar pain. 

The gentle distractive forces of the DTS therapy create a decompression of the spine with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning, to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area. You'll experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes. 

dts.jpgTherapy sessions typically last less than 20 minutes, 3 -5 times a week for 3 weeks to 1 month, transitioning from passive to active treatments as you respond, with most patients feeling pain relief with as few as 6-10 treatments. Most patients are released from treatment after 4 weeks. 

A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization muscles is a vital part of DTS Therapy. Exercise and adjunctive therapies such as ice and muscle stimulation can assist in rehabilitation of these structures. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc, but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back and neck. 

Regular home exercise and periodic visits to our office will help in maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence. Clinical results of this type of therapy have been effective in over 75% of the patients treated and most patients find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments utilizing the DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""Quick appointments, excellent front desk service, and Dr. Parks was outstanding! He explained everything and it was a nice surprise to hear he doesn't do x-rays , additional testing unless necessary. Most other places automatically do those things and just run up your bill- whether they are needed or not! Not here.. you get only what you actually need... Which for me was an excellent chiropractic experience.""
  • "" I was struggling with severe low back pain that was radiating down my leg. I was waking up in pain and advised by my provider to get injections to help with the pain. I came to Dr. Nick and now I’m walking around with days that are virtually pain free! I didn’t have to get Injections! If you are in pain, don’t wait. Make an appointment with Dr. Nick! He’s the best!!! Thank you Dr. Nick for helping me feel better!!""

  • ""The Doctors have always taken great care of me and my family. I had a major accident years ago and Dr Krause and Parks have been there all along while I have rebuilt my health. Without Chiropractic First I don’t know how I would have been able to get through it.""

  • ""Dr. Chris Hartley was able to help adjust me and offer other assistance as to what other treatment is necessary for me. Taking time to talk to me about what was hurting and understanding my needs. This is why I continue to see Dr. Chris and refer friends, family to your office. THANK YOU""

  • ""My back pain was why I started with chiropractic care. I had shots and pills before and didn't want them anymore. I couldn't ride in the car even a little ways let alone on a trip to see my grandkids. I gave up gardening because I couldn't bend.

    The whole office is so friendly you make friends instantly. My overall health has changed because not only is my back great, I can ride 3 hours without stopping. I'm so happy because I don't hurt. I think my whole attitude is better. Thank you!""
