SPINAL DECOMPRESSION

Back And Neck Pain – Herniated, Protruding Or Bulging Discs – Pinched Nerves

Spinal decompression; reducing disc pressure relaxes muscles, relieves nerve root compression and improves blood flow to the troubled areas of the spine. For decades complicated mechanical systems for traction have been utilized to reduce disc pressure with varying degrees of success. We relied on individual training and expertise to accomplish spinal decompression therapy. Decompression therapy now is made more reliable and repeatable with the DTS Decompression Table.

It is important to appreciate the value of personal experience. Most doctors, or chiropractors, treat these problems without really understanding your pain, so they can only begin to understand the frustration and desperation.

Since I am a fellow sufferer of neck, mid, and low back disc pain, I feel uniquely qualified in other people's suffering. I have been there! I know what might help because I know what helped me. I found out from personal experience what works and that does not.

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a most valuable tool in the treatment of back and neck pain.

Who can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?


Anyone who has back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. These conditions included herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or radiculopathy (pinched nerves).

What is Triton DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy?

DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy is FDA cleared and has a high success rate for pain associated with herniated or bulging discs...even after failed surgery. It is a non-surgical, traction based therapy for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain. During this procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be placed under negative pressure, causing a vacumm effect within it.

What can this vacuum effect do?

The vacuum effect accomplishes two things from a mechanical standpoint, disc material that has protruded or herniated outside the normal confines of the disc can be pulled back within the disc. Also, the vacuum within the disc stimulates growth of the blood supply, secondarily stimulating a healing response. This results in pain reduction and proper healing at the injured site.

How is Spinal Decompression Therapy different from regular traction?

The award winning Trion computer is the key. It controls the variations in the traction pull allowing for spinal decompression and eliminating muscle-guarding tat is typical in conventional traction devices. The preprogrammed patterns for ramping up and down the amount of axial distraction allows for higher levels of spinal decompression and disc rehydration.

Are there medical studies that document he effectiveness of Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Yes! One study documented by MRI show that up to 90% reduction of disc herniations in 10 of 14 cases. Other studies reported that the majority of ruptured disc patients achieved "good" to "excellent" results after spinal decompression therapy.

Are there conditions where Spinal Decompression Therapy is not indicated?

Spinal Decompression therapy is not recommended for pregnant women, patients who have sever osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage. Spinal surgery with instrumentation (screws, metal plates or "cages") is also not recommended. However, spinal decompression therapy after bone fusion or non-fusion surgery, can be performed.

Are the sessions painful and how many will be needed?

In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the spinal decompression session. The specific treatment plan will be determined by your examination. Based on current research , the best results have been achieved utilizing 10 sessions over a 6-week period.

Do most patients receive therapy and rehabilitative exercises in addition to Spinal Decompression Therapy?

To reduce inflammation and assist the healing process, the supporting structures are treated with passive therapies (ice/heat/muscle stimulation), chiropractic adjustments (as indicated) and/or active rehabilitation in order to strengthen the spinal musculature.
