Back Pain Relief is Here
Healthworks Medical of Summerville is excited to offer the Triton Decompression Traction System (DTS), to all our spinal decompression patients. Spinal decompression can be a viable alternative to surgery for reliving lower back pain, radiating arm and leg discomfort and neck pain.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Our FDA approved Triton Spinal Decompression System utilizes modern technology to effectively treat lower back, neck and arm and leg pain. The process decompresses spinal discs and facet joints by using traction and specific body positioning to alleviate stress on the targeted area providing, in most cases, immediate back pain relief.
Studies show that most pain related issues with the back is due to spinal disc injury. Gravity and daily activities increase pressure on our spinal discs and this can lead to disc protrusion, herniation of the spinal discs and bulging discs.
Our integrated therapy approach can help alleviate the pain and allow the body to heal. By using the Triton Spinal Decompression System in conjunction with our Physical Therapy services we can effectively treat your condition and help you avoid costly surgeries and extended recovery times.
How Our Spinal Decompression Is Better Than Older Systems
The more antiquated form of traction is a direct, consistent force that is put on the patient’s body to relieve the pressure of the body’s joints, muscles, and distinctive structures. For example, hanging upside down on an “inversion table” is a run of the mill system to put the spine into balance. Inversion tables use one’s own body weight to relieve pressure on the spine, thusly, the body weight is endeavoring to discharge the weight on the spine while the individual is upside down. Inversion tables may be dangerous for patients with vascular disease, heart issues, hypertension, and other prosperity conditions.
Spinal decompression has been around for over 1000 years and it has seen a variety of evolution’s over time. The Triton Decompression Traction System uses computer technology to control variations in the unloading (traction pull) of the spine, effectively avoiding the body’s muscle contraction response, which makes many of the older methods and systems ineffective. Older forms of traction can be painful and provide little to no relief. Their lack of success has to do with our spinal muscles natural tendency to contract when being pulled. The Triton DTS addresses this known issue and uses modern technology to offset the stress, allowing your body to heal providing back relief that can last.
