Frequently Asked Questions

 


 

 

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal Decompression therapy has an 86% success rate for pain reduction associated with herniated or bulging discs.... even after failed surgery.   It is a non-surgical, traction based therapy for the relief of back, neck and radiating nerve pain. During the procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it.

 How does the vacuum affect an injured disc?

Why did we choose the Triton DTS Spinal Decompression System? 

After a year of research, New Loudon Chiropractic chose chose the Triton DTS system manufactured by the Chattanooga group.  The Chattanooga group is the premier manufacturer of physical medicine equipment and offers the state of the art Computerized Head Unit. This is considered the most technologically  advanced unit offered today.  In fact, in 2006 the system won an asteemed Australian Design Award in the "Medical and Scientific" Category. It is also the system that the University of Texas purchased for treatment of its world class athletes.

How is Spinal Decompression different from regular Traction?

tritoncd.gifThe award winning Triton computer is the key. It controls the variations in the traction pull allowing for spinal decompression and eliminating muscle guarding that is typical in conventional traction devices. The pre programmed treatment protocols ramp up and down the amount of axial traction which allows for higher levels of decompression and rehydration.

Who Can Benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Anyone who has back or neck pain caused in whole or part by a damaged disc may be helped. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or radiculopathy (pinched nerves).

RUPTURED DISCS, SPINAL STENOSIS, SCIATICA, FACET SYNDROME, FAILED SURGERY
