DRS Spinal Decompression

Low back pain is a real pain. If you suffer from acute to severe and chronic low back pain, Total Physio may have the rehabilitation solution for you. The spinal disc decompression system, the DRS (Decompression Reduction Stabilization), is a safe, effective, non-invasive alternative to surgury. It has a proven success rate of 80-90% and is FDA approved.


DRS treatable conditions include: 

  • Degenerative
  • Ruptured and bulging (herniated) discs
  • Vertebral joints syndromes
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Radiculopathy (pinched nerves)

Discs simply don’t heal under pressure. Spinal  Disc Decompression can reduce the pressure  inside the disc, shrinking disc protrusion and  drawing innecessary fluids and nutrients  required for healing. MRI scans, before and  after the DRS, show disc repair and patching  in wall tears in all patients with evidence of  early re-hydration in the disc nucleus. The  DRS System is designed to facilitate the natural healing process and correct the cause of your back pain, not just treat the symptoms.

It is advised you have an initial consultation with one of our Physiotherapists or Doctors of Chiropractic to evaluate your condition and any other diagnostic material, such as CT scan or MRI. This will help to determine if your type of lumbar injury will respond well to decompression and to rule out any counter indications for DRS. The patient and Therapist will then agree on a treatment plan. Most patients will find relief of their symptoms between 15-25 sessions, while the average recommended course of treatment is 20.
