Do you live in the Phoenix, AZ area and have a herniated disc, multiple herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, facet syndrome, neck pain, back pain, numbness and tingling in the arms hands or legs? Is your doctor suggesting neck surgery, back surgery, pain management, or physical therapy?
Literature has suggested traction therapy for these patients and often reports high rates of success. Research indicates the disc is responsible for a significant number of back, neck, arm and leg pain syndromes. External compressive forces increase the pressure within the disc causing the outer rings to weaken, bulge and even tear. If a disc bulge or herniation occurs, the fragments or bulging material can compress and irritate surrounding spinal nerves leading to numbness, tingling and pain.
How Does Decompression Therapy Work?
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, traction based treatment that uses a computerized guided pulley system to cycle through distraction and relaxation phases to gently separate the bones of the spine. A specific spinal segment can be isolated and placed under a negative pressure gradient, causing a vacuum effect within the disc. The disc material that has protruded or herniated outside the normal confines of the disc can be pulled back within the disc, thus taking pressure off the surrounding pain sensitive nerves. In addition to relieving nerve irritation, decompression therapy increases circulation to the disc which stimulates healing within the injured tissues.
In addition to lumbar traction, our system is also capable of cervical (neck) and extremity (wrist / carpal tunnel) decompression traction. Additionally, the therapy can be delivered in a variety of different positions to maximize comfort.
The Triton DTS System has innovations that may contribute to better outcomes (especially when combined with other rehabilitation modalities).Some of these innovations include:
- Ability for patient to lie face up, face down or side lying during therapy
- Computerized control of decompression force
- A patented harness system for improved comfort
- Customized patient treatment protocols
- Dynamic force/time pull patterns
- Patient controlled Cut-off switch
- EMG Biofeedback capability Advanced table design
- Capable of up to as little as 5 Lbs up to 200 Lbs of decompression traction
How Long is a Typical Treatment
A typical treatment session for decompression therapy is approximately 20-30 minutes depending on each patient's condition. In most cases, the treatments are painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during their spinal decompression sessions.
We have positive results utilizing 20 treatment sessions over a 6-week period. Although treatment may last up to 6 weeks, many patients feel relief from their pain after only a few sessions.
We are extremely competitive with pricing and choose to pass these savings on to you. We do not spend any money on marketing this system as many other clinics do..... which means we do not have a large advertising budget and do not need re-coup money by increasing the price for this therapy. Most likely, you will save more than half of what other clinics are charging!
