What Causes Spinal Pain?
Many everyday factors can cause back pain such as your job, sports and other physical activities, and even the mattress you sleep on can all be accountable for muscle or ligament strain and muscle spasms. However, conditions such as a pinched nerve, sciatica, neck pain, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs can also cause severe back pain.
Back pain that comes suddenly can be caused by an injury such as a fall or heavy lifting, while back pain that develops without a cause can mean a variety of issues. These problems include muscle or ligament strain, bulging or ruptured disks, arthritis, skeletal irregularities and osteoporosis.
Most back pain gradually improves with home treatment and self-care within a few weeks. However, if yours doesn’t improve within that time, see your doctor.
What is Spinal Decompression Treatment?
Spinal decompression therapy is promoted as safe and effective, without the risks associated with invasive procedures such as injections, anesthesia or surgery. This procedure works through a series of 15 one minute alternating decompression and relaxation cycles to gently stretch the spine to change its overall position. Gentle stretching takes the pressure off the spinal discs, allowing bulging or herniated discs to retract, taking the pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. Stretching helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.
The process is effective in relieving lower back pain by enlarging intradiscal space, reducing herniation, strengthening outer ligaments to help move herniated areas back into place, and reversing high intradiscal pressures through application of negative pressure.
DTS, or Decompressive Traction System, is a non-surgical treatment proven effective in eliminating 85% of Lumbar & cervical spine injuries and “slipped disc.” Triton DTS can be used to relieve symptoms associated with:
What is the Spinal Decompression Treatment Process ?
Spinal decompression treatment at Focus Physiotherapy typically takes 20 minutes. There are three phases in each treatment; treatment, stabilization of structure and support of the muscular system.
Phase 1: The Treatment Begins
DTS Decompression Treatment is performed on a specially designed table in either a face-up or face-down position. During this time, you are fully clothed and fitted with a harness around your pelvis and another around your abdomen. These harnesses allow the unloading of the spine and discs by the traction motor. Your position on the table, the harness and the angle of the gentle distraction allow for focused treatment of the affected disc. Stretching or tractioning the spine in a controlled, comfortable manner can help re-establish more normal imbibition. Since DTS treatment is a comfort-based procedure, patients usually report a sense of relief and relaxation during the session. Many patients even fall to sleep.
Phase 2: Stabilization of Structure
During the second phase of your spinal decompression treatment, our office will prescribe a series of rehabilitative measures to allow your discs to heal and keep the pain from returning. Our Physiotherapists will also recommend at-home exercises to promote consistent stabilization and alleviate pain.
Phase 3: Support of Muscular System
During the last phase of your treatment, our professional Physiotherapist will structure an in-office and home-based exercise program to help bring your spine back to full health. This exercise program may include in-office resistance training, at home Stabilizer exerciser and resistance training and other “core” exercises. Regular and consistent home-based exercise is one of the keys to long-term relief.

Is Spinal Decompression Treatment Safe?
DTS Therapy treatments are one of the most gentle and comfortable therapies available for lower back pain. Most patients report a mild sense of stretch on their neck, back or hips, and often fall asleep during treatment sessions.
Can Spinal Decompression Treatment Alleviate my Pain?
As each patients pain and injury are different, there is no guarantee for success. However, the clinical results for spinal decompression treatment have been effective in more than 85% of patient treated. The most common issue behind many back conditions is damaged discs and poor spinal muscle control. At Focus Physiotherapy, our spinal decompression treatment program addresses both these core problems.
Although it’s always difficult to predict the long-term outcome of treatment programs, most patients find long-term relief or effective pain management with spinal decompression treatment. Also, regular home exercise and periodic visits to Focus Physiotherapy will help maintain your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence.
