Spinal Decompression Therapy with the Triton Decompression Traction System (DTS)
ChiroPlus North in Fort Worth, Texas is pleased to offer the Triton Decompression Traction System (DTS), a successful, non-surgical alternative treatment for relieving low back, neck pain, and radiating arm and leg pain. Spinal decompression therapy is an effective treatment for:
What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
It is a modern, non-surgical procedure that effectively treats low back, neck, and radiating leg and arm pain. Research was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers and technicians at major teaching hospitals. Our Triton Decompression Traction System is FDA approved and has been clinically proven to provide pain relief and decrease symptoms associated with herniated and/or bulging discs.
Studies have shown that the spinal disc injury is responsible for a significant number of lumbar/leg pain and neck/arm pain syndromes. Excessive compression forces from daily activities increases internal spinal disc pressure which can lead to spinal disc protrusion, herniation, and bulging of disc material. Using the Triton DTS in conjunction with other therapy treatments provided in our clinic can effectively relieve the pain and disability resulting from disc injury and degeneration.
Results that help get your life back.
By significantly reducing internal disc pressure, the Triton DTS promotes retraction of the herniation spinal disc material back to a normal physiologic position and promotes the intake of fluids, oxygen, and other substances necessary for healing the spinal disc and surrounding tissues. This decompression stimulates the repair of tissues and inhibits leakage of the internal material of the spinal disc.
Spinal decompression therapy using the Triton DTS uses modern computer technology to control variations in the unloading (traction pull) of the spine, effectively avoiding the body's muscle contraction response. Your Fort Worth Doctor controls and customizes how many progressive tension steps you experience before reaching the maximum tension and has complete control over how long the tensions are held steady and how often they are repeated through the computerized system.
What Are The Treatments Like?
Treatments are one of the most gentle and comfortable therapies available. Once lying you will be fitted in a support system. The support system helps to stabilize your body. The advanced computer-controlled system automatically adjusts to the proper angle of pull (distraction), allowing us to target the specific spinal 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 decompression of the spinal disc.
While lying down on the table, the Triton DTS's computer simulates an anti-gravity effect on your spine that 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, intermittent pulling sensation.
Treatment frequency and length will vary upon a patient's condition and is determined by a thorough evaluation. It is important to note that many patients get substantial, immediate relief after just a few treatments
Will My Pain Go Away For Good?
Although it is difficult to predict the future, experience has shown that most patients do find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire recommended program of treatments. Regular home exercise will help in maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence. As with any comprehensive rehabilitation program, your continued home care exercises and discretion in some daily activities are essential to long-term relief.
