We offer spinal decompression therapy using the Triton Decompression Traction System to treat low back, neck, and radiating leg and arm pain due to herniated discs and/or bulging discs.
Using the computer controlled Triton DTS in addition with chiropractic and other treatments provided can effectively relieve the pain and disability resulting from disc injury and degeneration.
What Are the Treatments Like?
After lying down on the comfortable Triton DTS table, you will be fitted in a support system that helps to stabilize your body. The advanced computer-controlled system automatically adjusts to the proper angle of pull (distraction), simulating an anti-gravity effect on your spine allowing us to target the specific spinal discs that are causing your pain and symptoms.
Specific body positioning and computer controlled traction keep you relaxed allowing for maximum benefit, and helps herniated spinal disc material to move toward its normal position, thus, reducing spinal disc pressure and pain. Patients typically describe the treatment as a gentle, painless, and an intermittent pulling sensation.
How Long Are Treatments And How Many Do You Need?
Patients typically undergo 10 to 20 decompression/traction treatment sessions lasting 15 to 20 minutes. This will work in conjunction with additional therapy and chiropractic treatments.
However, treatment time will vary upon a patient's condition and is determined by a thorough orthopedic and neurological evaluation. MRI's, CT scans and X-rays are also reviewed to discover the areas to be targeted for maximum results.
Can Spinal Decompression Therapy Using Triton DTS Help My Pain?
Though each patient is different and no chiropractor can guarantee success, the clinical results of this type of therapy have been shown to be effective in patient's selected for treatment.
The common problems of many back conditions are damaged spinal discs and poor spinal muscle control. Our treatment program addresses both of these core problems.
The specially-designed Triton DTS system creates a controlled unloading of the spine which appears to decrease spinal disc pressure while increasing blood and nutrient exchange; this exchange is critical to aid in the spinal disc healing process. Muscle strength, control, and endurance can all be improved with our chiropractic program which will includes specific rehabilitative exercises.

"I have a lumbar disc problem and did not want surgery. I did disc decompression 3 times a week. My pain was better after the first week and by week 2, it was manageable. I still go from time to time to keep in check.They get 5 stars from me."
