This proven therapy for neck and low back disc problems is so exciting that we have a special website section to fully discuss the treatment. Contact us today to learn more about how this highly effective, non-invasive treatment might relieve your symptoms and help you avoid spinal surgery.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical traction based treatment for herniated or bulging discs in the neck and lower back. Anyone who has back, neck, arm or leg pain may be helped by spinal decompression therapy.
In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the spinal decompression session.
After a significant amount of research, Back & Body Chiropractic chose the Triton® DTS system manufactured by the Chattanooga Group, the premier manufacturer of physical medicine equipment.
More importantly, our system, the Triton DTS has the brand new computerized head which is the most sophisticated and technologically advanced unit in the world.
In fact, the new Triton® head is so revolutionary that it won the Australian Design Award in the “Medical and Scientific” category. It is also the system that the University of Texas 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.
In regard to clinical skills, Dr. Allan Dabbs continues to seek the most advanced continuing education courses available for this and other cutting edge therapies to best help his patients.
The computerized traction head and doctor skill are the keys. Proper assessment and the use of preprogrammed patterns of distraction and relaxation may permit disc material to be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc and allow healing to occur.
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 even failed surgery.
Spinal decompression therapy is not recommended for pregnant women, patients who have severe osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage.
Spinal surgery with instrumentation (screws, metal plates or “cages”) is also contraindicated. However, spinal decompression therapy after bone fusion or non-fusion surgery, can be performed.
To reduce inflammation and assist the healing process, supporting structures are treated with passive therapies (ice/muscle stimulation), chiropractic adjustments (as indicated) and/or active rehabilitation in order to strengthen the spinal musculature.
We want to make it easy for you to learn if you are a candidate for spinal decompression therapy.
