Will DTS Therapy Treatments Hurt? Is It Safe?DTS Therapy treatments are one of the most gentle and comfortable therapies available.The Chiropractic care treatments by Chiropractor Michael Cohen of Cohen of Chiropractic and Wellness utilize equipment with proven safety and efficacy. Most Chiropractic patients report a mild sense of stretch on their neck, back or hips, and often fall asleep during treatment sessions.
Can DTS Therapy Help My Pain?Though each patient is different and no Chiropractor can guarantee success, the clinical results of this type of therapy have been effective in over 75% of patients treated.The common problems behind the majority of back conditions are damaged discs and poor spinal muscle control. Our treatment program address both of these core problems.
The DTS system creates a controlled unloading of the vertebra to decrease disc pressure thus increasing blood and nutrient exchange. This exchange of fluids is something the damaged disc desperately needs to help it heal from the inside out. (Muscle strength, control and endurance can all be improved with other facets of DTS Therapy that include specific controlled exercises.)
Will My Pain Go Away For Good?Although it is always difficult to predict the future, our experience is that most patients do find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments. Regular home exercise and periodic visits to our office will help maintain your spinal health and reduce the probability of re-occurrence. As with any comprehensive rehabilitation program your continued home care exercises and discretion in some daily activities is essential to your long-term relief.
Why is DTS Therapy More Successful Than Other Treatment Options?DTS Therapy is a comprehensive program of the newest traction techniques and targeted "core" stabilization exercise with biofeedback. In addition, we provide other complementary treatments that have proven effectiveness in back care. It is this multidimensional approach that makes Cohen Chiropractic & Wellness' overall treatment program so effective.
Additionally, discs have been shown to predominate the area of pain, so treating them as directly as possible is just common sense. Focused-traction to the site, rehabilitation of the supporting structures and overall strengthening of global musculature makes the treatment complete.
In short, DTS Therapy affects the disc as directly and beneficially as possible without invasive, possibly unneeded surgery.
