Mississauga Spinal Decompression

Mississauga Spinal Decompression: It is proven that 7 out of 10 adults will suffer from spinal pain at some point in their lifetime. For many decades, traction therapy has proven to be an effective modality for treating back dysfunction. Chattanooga Spine Therapy provides clinically-proven treatment for spinal pain. It is a spine treatment that targets the root cause of the pain. As decompression therapy progresses and continues to develop, clinicians have begun using the new and improved DTS Traction System. Traction therapy is effective in treating many issues and has shown impressive results. It offers controlled, consistent and repeatable traction force while also remaining clinically effective despite patient size. Some of the benefits of DTS therapy is that it aids in reducing disc pressure, relieving nerve root compression, increased blood flow as well as relaxing the muscles. After receiving DTS therapy, 91% of patients reported neck and arm pain reduction.

Traction Therapy is effective for:

  • Protruding discs
  • Bulging discs
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Acute facet problems
  • Radicular pain
  • Prolapsed discs
  • Spinal root impingement
  • Hypomobility
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Facet syndrome
  • Compression fractures
  • Joint pain
  • Discogenic pain

Mechanical/Physiological Effects of Traction:

Decompression of the Spine:

  • Unload spine
  • Decrease bulging and protruding discs
  • Separate vertebrae
  • Decrease pain

Mobilation of Spine:

  • Stretch ligaments and tendons
  • Mobilize the capsule, facet joints and intravertebral discs
  • Increase range of motion
  • Increase flexibility
