Spinal Decompression Therapy (DTS)
Spinal Decompression Therapy (DTS) is a non-invasive treatment for low back pain and neck pain associated with herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome and radicular (nerve root) pain. As such, it has become a standard of care for chronic spinal pain, and a leading alternative to surgery.
DTS is an effective, safe and cost effective procedure without any of the risks associated with surgery, injections, or the merry-go-round of drugs and other non-specific treatments. Backed by years of clinical research, a study published in 2010 showed that patients had significantly improved pain and disability scores at end of treatment, at 30 days and at 180 days post-discharge.
Missouri Brain & Spine utilizes DTS therapy in conjunction with specific physical rehabilitation exercises to stabilize the spine, and prevent future injury. Many of our patients are professional athletes from the NBA, NFL, NHL, MMA, Olympic athletes, as well as weekend warriors.
