What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-invasive and non-surgical therapy to relieve back pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries and conditions such as: herniated discs, spinal stenosis, bulging or torn discs, degenerated discs, and radiant pain resulting from pinching nerves.
If you have:
- Been diagnosed with herniated discs, spinal stenosis, bulging or torn discs
- Pain in the upper, mid or lower back
- Taken NSAIDs or pain medication regularly for back trouble
- Considered surgery or injections for your back pain
Then Spinal Decompression Therapy may be right for you. Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-invasive treatment alternative to spinal disc injury with an 80-90% success rate for effectively reducing pain. Spinal Decompression Therapy works by relieving pressure from injured or crowded discs and nerves using traction in a safe, non-surgical procedure tailored to address the unique points of distress in your spine.
Spinal Decompression is a low impact procedure that relies on a cycle of pressure and relaxation to create prime conditions for the compressed discs in your spine to return to their normal position and receive an increase of blood flow to promote healing and circulation.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Does DTS Work?
When the discs that cushion the vertebrae in your spine become compressed, the pressure can force the disc to protrude causing pain and negative impact on the surrounding nerves. Spinal Decompression Therapy relieves the force impacting the compressed discs by stretching and elongating the spine in a comfortable repetition of pulling and resting. Spinal Decompression Therapy heals by increasing blood flow to affected discs while ending pain making it a dual action, non-invasive treatment with rapid results. At Lubbock Integrated Medical Institute we are highly skilled in delivering high-quality Spinal Decompression Therapy for holistic healing and sustainable pain relief.
