What is Spinal Decompression?
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 isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it.
How does this negative pressure affect an injured disc?
During spinal decompression therapy, a negative pressure is created within the disc. Because of that negative pressure, disc material that has protruded or herniated can be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, and permit healing to occur.
What system is used for this purpose?
After a significant amount of research, the Spinal Decompression Center chose the Triton® DTS system manufactured by the Chattanooga Group, the premier manufacturer of physical medicine equipment. More importantly, our two systems - yes, we have TWO complete systems to avoid patient wait times - have the brand new computerized head which is the most sophisticated and technologically advanced unit in the world. No office - and we do mean NO OFFICE - has more "state of the art" spinal decompression systems
In fact, the new Triton® head is so revolutionary that it won an Australian Design Award in the "Medical and Scientific" category. It is also the system that the University of Texas recently purchased for the treatment of its world-class athletes.
We also selected the Triton® DTS systems due to their ability to treat discs in both the neck and the low back.
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 include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or radiculopathy (pinched nerves
