Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy as performed in our clinic is a very high-tech form of traction. It is a highly successful, non-surgical alternative procedure for relieving low back, neck, and arm and leg pain. It is an effective treatment for:
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Facet syndrome
- Post-surgical patients
- Spinal Stenosis
What is spinal decompression therapy?
Decompression Therapy is a modern, high tech, non-surgical traction procedure that effectively treats disabling low back, neck, and radiating leg and arm pain. This type of traction is very successful in relieving pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, and posterior facet syndromes, due to decompression of spinal discs and facet joints by utilizing traction, distraction and positioning.
This therapy effectively enhances the healing process and renders quick, effective and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle.
What are the treatments like?
After lying on the comfortable DTS Triton spinal treatment table, you will be fitted with a support system. The support system helps to stabilize your body. The advanced computer controlled system automatically adjusts to the proper pulling angle (distraction), allowing us to target the specific discs that are causing your pain and symptoms. The distractive forces utilize a computer controlled logarithmic curve to avoid reflex responses which would create muscle spasm. The split table design decreases friction and allows separation of the vertebra.
Basically, you lay down on the table and the DTS Triton spinal traction computer system simulates an anti-gravity effect on your spine that helps herniated material return toward its normal position thus reducing pressure and pain. Patients describe the treatment as a gentle, painless, intermittent pulling sensation.
