Why the need for exercises and other therapies?
Along with the damage in the disc we also need to treat the supporting spinal muscles. A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization muscles is a vital part of DTS Therapy. Heat, muscle stimulation, Ultrasound, and cold laser therapy can offer and additional benefit for inflammation and spasm reduction. Our hope is not only to help heal the disc but enhance muscle control and support the low back. A gradual breakdown of the foundational support of your back is what puts undue stresses on the discs and leads to pain and loss of function. Exercise and adjunctive therapies will assist in rehabilitating these structures.
