The Triton DTS Traction Unit provides clinically proven pain treatment that gets to the root of cervical and lumbar pain. Spinal decompression stretches the spine to take pressure off the compressed discs. This straightens the spine and improves the body’s ability to heal itself.

Research points to beneficial effects of traction because it can distract joint surfaces, reduce protrusions of nuclear discal material, stretch soft tissue muscle and mobilize joints. These effects provide many patients with pain relief from spinal dysfunction. The stimulation of sensory mechanoreceptors that occurs with the application of traction may also gate pain transmission.

Traction and decompression therapy can be used to relieve peripheral radiation/sciatica and neck pain associated with:

  • Protruding discs
  • Bulging discs
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative discs disease
  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Acute facet problems
  • Radicular pain
  • Prolapsed discs
  • Spinal root impingement
  • Hypomobility
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Compression fractures
  • Joint pain
  • Discogenic pain

Clinical benefits of traction therapy are:

  • Circulation improvement
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Decreased pain
  • Increased range of motion
  • Increased flexibility
  • Proper spinal alignment
  • Reduced edema
  • Reduced disc herniation
  • Relieve nerve root compression
