Decompression Therapy

Bellevue Natural Health offers a new modality effective in relieving mild to severe acute and chronic low-back pain. Spinal decompression helps restore spinal stability and relieve pain associated with degenerative disc disease (osteo-arthritis), herniated discs, facet syndrome, and spinal stenosis. The objective of decompression is to reduce the pressure inside the disc and facilitate the transfer of fluids, nutrients, and oxygen back inside the disc.

What is Decompression Traction System (DTS)

Research has proven discs may be a primary site of back and leg pain, as well as, neck and arm pain. The disc is damaged by “compression and flexion” (squishing). The disc is avascular (no direct blood supply). It gets nutrients in and waste products out, by diffusion (like a sponge) thus the healthier the disc the greater the diffusion.

DTS is a non-surgical, non-invasive, effective treatment for chronic and acute low back/leg and neck/arm pain. It utilizes a traction system to effectively decompress (stretch) the vertebrae in the spine in a safe, controlled and very specific way to open the disc space. This decreases the pressure on the discs and allows an increase of blood flow to help heal the inflamed area.

DTS treatment is directed at relieving pressure on structures that may be a major source of pain. It can relieve pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative discs, facet syndrome and sciatica (referred pain) and headaches. Research indicated in some cases bulges may be drawn or sucked in by DTS decompression and is effective at relieving pinched nerves that cause muscle spasms.

DTS helps relieve pain through the decompression of lumbar and cervical discs and joints (that is unloading due to distraction and positioning). This cyclical, painless setting reduces pressure, promotes blood and fluid flow and improves healing naturally.

Is Traction Right For You

Any low back, neck, arm and leg pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. It is a simple, non-invasive, non-surgical way to ease pinched nerves and muscle tension for cervical and low back pain. Traction therapy is an effective and affordable alternative to surgery.
