Spinal Decompression Therapy involves stretching of the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back pain and/or leg pain.This procedure is called nonsurgical decompression therapy (as opposed to surgical spinal decompression, such as laminectomy and microdiscectomy). Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in an attempt to bring about several theoretical benefits. It creates a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc material, or creates a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances into the disc. Decompression therapy typically consists of a series of 15 to 30 treatments, lasting 30 to 45 minutes each, over a four to six-week period. Sessions are conducted in the orthopedics' office. Sessions may include additional treatment modalities, such as electric stimulation, ultrasound, and cold and/or heat therapy applied during or after the procedure. Spinal compression can occur anywhere from your neck (cervical spine) down to your lower back (lumbar spine). Symptoms include numbness, pain, and weakness. Depending on the cause of the compression, symptoms may develop suddenly or gradually, and they may require anything from supportive care to emergency surgery. The physical therapy phase may include additional spinal decompression treatments using the Triton DTS coupled with therapeutic exercise, stretching, and spinal manipulation to enhance the response to treatment. Most patients discontinue spinal decompression / traction treatments after 4 to 6 weeks though.
