The Triton® DTS, state-of-the-art disc decompression therapy is an affordable way to relieve degenerative or herniated disc problems of the spine. It requires no surgery and can potentially help most patients that have lower back pain, neck pain, and arm or leg pain. Our equipment may also be used to decompress the wrists in cases of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It is an extremely safe form of traction treatment that is FDA approved.
Your health improvement and maintenance are a top priority and it is important to know that disc decompression therapy is a state of the art method for correcting bulging or herniated spinal discs.
Dr. Green puts together a specific treatment plan for every person who uses decompression therapy. Some problems that cause pain in your body are more deep-rooted than others, and it's important to develop a plan made exactly for your body. Sometimes this takes longer for some than others. This therapy is painless in almost all cases; in fact, people often fall asleep during it. The comfortable environment at our Wellness Center makes it easy to relax and our friendly staff will make you feel right at home.
Other treatments may be used in conjunction with your decompression therapy, including hot packs, cold packs, ultrasound, stretching and massage techniques. Chiropractic adjustments and active rehabilitation may also be used. These treatments are used to optimize your treatment plan and correct your spine. Spinal decompression therapy is not recommended for pregnant women, patients who have severe osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage. Make sure to let Dr. Green know if you have had any type of surgery on your spine before beginning decompression treatments.
Until you experience a back injury, you have no real understanding of how debilitating it is. Virtually every movement uses one of the back or adjoining muscles. Back pain sufferers experience numbness, weakness, and reduced functioning of the limbs. Back pain interferes with work, sleep, and relaxation as well. If your injury progresses to the point where the disc material moves into spaces occupied by nerves, you are facing back surgery…well until now that is. With the inception of the Triton® DTS spinal decompression machines, patients now have a non- surgical option to relieve the nonstop pain they have been experiencing.
DTS Therapy is an Alternative to Surgery
You don't have to live in debilitating pain. Whether you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, neck pain, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, as well as syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine, DTS Therapy may be for you.
This gentle, non-surgical therapy can provide lower back pain relief, sciatica pain relief, and is a state-of-the-art therapy for neck pain relief, bulging or degenerative disc disease, and lumbar pain.
The gentle distractive forces of the DTS therapy create a decompression of the spine with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning, to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area. You'll experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes.
Therapy sessions typically last less than 20 minutes, 3 times a week for 1 month, transitioning from passive to active treatments as you respond, with most patients feeling pain relief with as few as 6-10 treatments. Most patients are released from treatment after 8 weeks.
A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization muscles is a vital part of DTS Therapy. Exercise and adjunctive therapies such as heat, muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and cold therapy can assist in rehabilitation of these structures. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc, but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back and neck.
Regular home exercise and periodic visits to our office will help in maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence. Clinical results of this type of therapy have been effective in over 85% of the patients treated and most patients find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments utilizing the DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy.
