Decompression traction therapy is an innovative, non-surgical
approach developed for the treatment of low back or neck
pain. According to recent surveys, this painless and safe
alternative is more than 70 percent effective in relieving low back
pain and sciatica.
For instance, with the use of advanced technology, people
suffering with low back pain due to herniated discs, degenerated
discs, compression fractures, radicular pain and posterior facet
syndrome now have a better chance of resuming a normal, pain-free
way of life without the risks, complications and expenses often
associated with spinal surgery.
More specifically, the Triton® DTS Traction System
is designed to relieve pressure on the structures that may be
causing low back pain by utilizing state-of-the-art technology
allowing the patient to maintain a comfort level that most
conventional or manual traction methods cannot sustain.
What makes the Triton® DTS Traction System different is the
approach behind the system. Utilizing VAX-D technology, this
mechanical traction system makes use of an electric tension head
used in conjunction with a new table design and QuikWrap™
belting system that work together to mimic hands-on therapy.
The Triton MP-1's smooth electric gear motor control system
delivers the exact traction force in either intermittent or static
mode with gentle progressive steps both at the beginning and end of
treatment. In addition, the Triton MP-1 continually monitors
progress and makes adjustments to the weight changes due to tissue
stretching or patient relaxation.
A tabletop that moves freely on bearings allows you
to overcome gravitation forces, thus eliminating the need to
increase the weight in order to deliver the necessary force to the
patient. With each successive pull, the Triton TRT 550
traction table's friction free surface returns to a neutral
position through a spring recoil device, thus allowing the control
and consistency to be increased. The size and capabilities of
the table assures patients the most comfortable treatment session
possible. In addition, because this treatment method is
covered by most insurance plans, out of pocket expenses are
