- For a typical therapy session on the DTS, the patient is fitted with a comfortable upper harness that holds the upper body immobile on the deeply padded and very comfortable treatment table. A pelvic harness is fitted to the patient to provide the lower back decompression. The treatment parameters are then set into the computer. This includes the treatment (pulling) weight, the proper disc level to be treated, and the number of treatment and rest cycles (typically 2 and 18 per session). A comfortable bolster is then placed under the knees, and a lower back support is pumped up to the patient's comfort level. A strap is connected to the pelvic harness, and the computer begins a slow pull that gradually increases up to the pre-set treatment weight and targeted disc level. This is usually half the patient's body weight, plus 20 pounds. The maximum pull allowed is 175 pounds. The gentle pumping action of pulls and rest cycles continues. Most patients relax completely, and some even fall asleep during the treatment. Therapy sessions typically last less than 20 minutes and most patients feel pain relief with as few as 2-10 treatments.
