Spinal Decompression

If you’ve been told you need surgery to help your pinched nerve or herniated disc, spinal decompression via the Triton DTS may help you avoid surgery. Decompression tables are designed to provide a specific force on your spine in order to increase the spaces between your vertebrae. This helps give herniated discs the room they need to heal and takes the pressure off any nerves that are pinched in your back or neck. Most individuals notice a decrease in their pain levels after the first session, but it can take multiple sessions before long-lasting pain relief is realized. This is because spinal decompression works with your body to heal the cause of your pain.

Let's break it down in simple terms:

1. Spinal Decompression:

The spine is made up of individual bones called vertebrae, which are separated by soft discs acting as cushions. Sometimes, due to conditions like a herniated disc or degenerative disc disease, the discs can put pressure on the spinal nerves, causing pain and discomfort. Spinal decompression is a technique that gently stretches and elongates the spine to create space between the vertebrae. This helps alleviate pressure on the discs and nerves, allowing them to heal and function better. Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc.

2. Chattanooga Triton DTS table:

The Chattanooga Triton DTS (Dynamic Traction System) table is a specialized table designed for spinal decompression. It is equipped with advanced technology and features to provide controlled and precise stretching of the spine. The patient lies on the table, and the machine's computer-controlled system applies a gentle pulling force to the spine, targeting the specific area causing the pain or discomfort. This pulling force is carefully controlled and intermittent, allowing for cycles of decompression and relaxation. The goal is to reduce pressure on the affected discs and nerves while promoting the movement of fluids, oxygen, and nutrients into the affected area for healing.

3. Targeting Specific Areas:

Our Placentia chiropractor can customize the spinal decompression treatment by focusing on the specific areas of the spine that require decompression. This targeting is based on the patient's symptoms, diagnostic findings, and the chiropractor's assessment.

4. Benefits of Spinal Decompression in Placentia:

Spinal decompression using the Chattanooga Triton table can provide several benefits. It aims to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and promote the healing of injured discs or tissues in the spine. By creating a space in the vertebrae, it may help to alleviate symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, radiating arm or leg pain (sciatica), and numbness or tingling sensations. The treatment is non-invasive, meaning it does not involve surgery

Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about twenty minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week and are typically finished with treatment within eight weeks.

If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal decompression can help you.
