Patients with the following conditions might benefit from this therapy:
Back and neck pain can be seriously debilitating conditions. Treatment often includes a combination of therapies to relieve pressure on the spinal column. Spinal compression occurs when the flexible bones in the spine move closer together from injury, age, osteoporosis, or other causes. This condition causes damaging compression on the spinal cord, which results in leg, neck, shoulder, or back pain. The spinal cord disc can then push out between any available spaces to compensate, where it can become pinched, trapped outside its protective cage, and dry out over time.
Spinal decompression therapy utilizes various methods to relieve compression, allowing injuries to heal, spinal columns to return to their proper position, and compressed bones to stretch into a more healthful configuration. This therapy enjoys FDA approval and is often used successfully in lieu of risky surgeries. The treatment can also correct conditions that surgery failed to relieve. The Triton DTS® Traction System features state-of-the-art technology to manipulate key areas of the spine safely, effectively, and in complete comfort.
The Triton® computer with advanced software precisely controls traction, gently pulling apart compressed bones without the associated muscle clenching that accompanies many other traction devices. The device effectively relieves compression, allowing spinal vertebrae to return to their proper position. By cycling through a carefully programmed regimen of stretching individual vertebrae, a vacuum is created. This causes the unprotected gelatinous discs to snap back into their proper position within the spinal column, relieving pressure on the nerves that are causing neck, pain, arm, and leg pain. The vacuum also facilitates restoration of hydrating blood, oxygen, and nutrients to damaged tissues, enhancing the healing process.
This advanced, computer-assisted process provides painless, gentle decompression without the impacts of other machines or some manual therapies. Other decompression devices often cause muscle clenching because their manipulations are too forceful. The Triton DTS® Traction System performs a cycle of brief intervals of applying pulling force and relaxation, which is called oscillation. This safe, gentle technique does not cause muscle clenching or discomfort.
This efficient system can isolate damaged discs and concentrate the healing therapy on the damaged area by utilizing angular elongation. This technique produces more effective results than the methods that target large numbers of discs, making sure that the right vertebrae are stretched. Targeted finesse is highly effective and outperforms brute force, which can be uncomfortable or even painful. Identifying the correct angle for traction pressure allows successful decompression, without excess force. Therapy sessions are usually completed within 20 minutes.
Patients often gain immediate relief from chronic back pain, often after the first treatment. This gentle procedure feels more like a massage than spinal manipulation, and some patients even fall asleep during the process. Treatments generally are scheduled three–five times per week, and the overall treatment protocol lasts for 15–20 sessions. Many patients see their chronic pain entirely eliminated as a result of this therapeutic regimen, but it is essential to follow the recommended course of treatment to completion in order to facilitate complete healing.
Patients with spinal diseases, canal stenosis, and acute injury are not suitable for this type of therapy. Patients with acute inflammation should treat that condition first, before undergoing spinal decompression, which could exacerbate the inflammation. Spinal decompression is suitable for almost any kind of non-acute back or neck pain that is not related to a disease. People with calcification issues, osteoporosis, disc fragmentation, or arthritis may have conditions that are unsuitable for this therapy. Each case is decided on an individual basis. Patients with spinal implants might also be excluded.
The Triton DTS® Traction System consists of a comfortable table fitted with a harness. The harness wraps around the body, with sensors that report data directly to a computer that monitors and controls the administration of traction therapy.
At first, there is a warm-up period when no actual force is applied, allowing the muscles to relax to a certain level. The traction is then applied in a brief interval of gentle stretching, followed by a resting period. The machine operates at variable speeds for complete control to maximize patient comfort. Within the chiropractic industry, the Triton DTS® Traction System is considered to be the best available; it has won numerous awards for performance and multiple endorsements from respected medial authorities.
Spinal decompression therapy often eliminates pain in four to six sessions by facilitating healing and returning damaged discs to their proper, protected position in the spinal column.
