What is Spinal Decompression?

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.
