Spinal Decompression with the Chattanooga Triton DTS Traction Table

End Back Pain WITHOUT Drugs or Surgery!!! Spinal decompression is now available in Midtown Sacramento! If you have been suffering from low back pain, neck pain, or other spinal injuries, and have been told that a lifetime of taking drugs or a risk surgery are you only options, we have new hope for you.

The Chattanooga Triton Decompression Traction System (“DTS”) is essentially a method of stretching your body to relieve the pressure that builds up in the spine through various causes, including injury, obesity, inactivity and over-taxing of the cervical and lumbar muscles. DTS uses gentle intermittent distractive forces, thereby creating an unloading and separating of the joints of the spine.
The Chattanooga Triton Decompression Traction System can be an essential element of chiropractic therapy, using safe and effective FDA-approved equipment. This treatment is now available in Midtown Sacramento, at The Healing Touch Chiropractic. DTS works for cervical and lumbar traction / decompression, and is useful for patients suffering chronic back pain, and those recovering from acute back, neck, or spinal injuries.

Spinal Decompression

The Triton Decompression Traction System may be used to relieve peripheral extremity radiation, arm pain, leg pain, sciatica, and pain associated with:

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

How does it work?
The Chattanooga Triton Decompression Traction System’s pull-relax patterns create a suctioning effect on the disc, much like pulling a balloon from both ends, and the middle portion narrows as a result. The goal of DTS therapy is to reduce the pressure on the nerve, most commonly from a herniated or protruding disc. DTS therapy also decreases muscle spasms and muscle guarding, and breaks up adhesions, in order to facilitate increased range of motion and decrease pain. In addition, spinal decompression helps improve blood flow and nutrient exchange at the disc, which results in pain relief, improved healing, and slower degeneration. The Triton Decompression Traction System is for cervical and lumbar traction.

Q. Is The Chattanooga Triton Decompression Traction DTS Therapy new?
A. Although traction therapy has been around for thousands of years, Decompressive Traction is relatively new. Advances in equipment and procedures have dramatically improved effectiveness.

Q. Why is The Chattanooga Triton Decompression Traction DTS Therapy more successful than other treatment options?
A. The Chattanooga Triton Decompression Traction System is a comprehensive program of the newest traction techniques and targeted “core” stabilization exercises. In addition, we use chiropractic adjunctive treatments that have proven effectiveness in back care. It is this multi-faceted approach that makes the overall treatment so effective. Additionally, discs have been shown to be a predominate site of pain, so treating it as directly as possible makes sense. The blending of focused traction to the site, rehabilitation to the supporting structures, and spinal alignment correction with appropriate spinal manipulation, makes the treatment unique. DTS affects the disc as directly as possible without surgery.

Q. Can The Chattanooga Triton Decompression Traction DTS Therapy help my pain?
A. Though each patient is different, and no doctor can guarantee success, the clinical results of this type of therapy have been effective in over 85% of patients treated. Common problems to many back conditions are damaged discs and poor spinal muscle control. Our treatment program addresses both of these core problems. The Chattanooga Triton Decompression Traction DTS creates a controlled unloading of the vertebra to decrease disc pressure thus increasing blood and nutrient exchange. This exchange of fluids is something the damaged disc desperately needs to help it heal from the inside out. Muscle strength, control and endurance can all be improved with other facets of The Chattanooga Triton Decompression Traction DTS therapy that include specific controlled exercises.

Q. How long will my treatment program be?

A. It depends on the complexity and extent of the rehabilitation needed; however, we typically treat 1 to 3 times a week for 5 to 20 visits, transitioning from passive to active treatments as you respond. The treatment is administered over a reasonable time frame and your response is continually evaluated. Further treatments may be necessary, or a reduced frequency may be recommended at that time. The rehabilitative phase may include additional Chattanooga Triton Decompression Traction System (“DTS”) treatments, with spinal adjustments to enhance the results.


"I was lifting in the gym when I felt something snap in my back. I had instant shooting pain from my back down my leg, and went straight to the hospital. The shots for pain barely helped me. I was in bed for days. My doctor ordered a MRI and saw there was this huge disc pushing on my spinal cord and nerve. He said my only option was surgery, although they couldn't schedule surgery for several weeks. I was writhing in pain. A friend told me about The Healing Touch Chiropractic and Decompression Therapy and how it had saved him from surgery. I had time before surgery; I decided to give it a try to see if I could get some relief while waiting. I couldn't believe it! From the very first treatment I started feeling better. After a few more treatments I was walking without a limp, and soon I was walking with no pain at all. I had a follow-up MRI as preparation for surgery. I couldn't believe it but the disc was mostly back in place. The surgeon cancelled my surgery. I am so grateful to the Healing Touch and their great team of doctors and staff. I am now pain free, back in the gym, and have my whole life back on track."
