The Triton Decompression Traction System (“DTS”) is an essential element of successful Chiropractic care. The Triton DTS by Chattanooga is a safe and effective FDA-approved equipment. The TRITON 6M traction table is designed to treat the spine under traction together with the traction unit. Traction treatments are performed in order to increase spinal mobility and decompression by relaxing tense muscles and increasing intervertebral disc spacing and foramina encroachment, which leads to a reduction of oppression and irritation of the nerve roots and improvement of circulation in the area of the vertebral artery. It is for patients suffering chronic back pain or recovering from back, neck or spinal injuries. DTS is effective at treating muscle spasms, bulging discs, herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, radiating arm pain, headaches, and facet syndrome.
Spinal decompression traction is essentially a method of stretching your body to relieve the pressure that builds up in the spine through various causes, including injury, obesity, inactivity and over-taxing of the cervical and lumbar muscles. The DTS uses gentle intermittent distractive forces, thereby creating an unloading and separating of the joints of the spine.
The DTS is pre-programmed with Clinical protocols for cervical and lumbar traction, and there are an additional 80 slots for user-defined protocols, meaning that you and your doctor can choose the setting best suited for your needs. The DTS also has the ability to save patient treatment sessions on Patient Data Cards, which record patient pain mapping, pain scales, and pain types all from the unit to the card. This feature allows your doctor not only to check your progress, but also to use the data to determine ways to optimize the treatment further by targeting areas of particular concern in future sessions.
The DTS is best utilized as an adjunct to regular chiropractic treatments and Softwave therapy (TRT) to heal the causes of your back pain. Many spinal decompression patients experience significant recovery in just a few months, and immediate pain relief, thereby avoiding the need for risky surgical procedures. We got your back!
