Spinal Decompression Disc Recovery Program

WHAT IS SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY?

Non-surgical Spinal Decompression is a new technology that aids in reversing disc herniations. It creates a vacuum effect on the disc, which attempts to pull the disc back into its normal position and brings in a fresh blood supply to promote healing.

Spinal decompression treatments are very gentle. You’ll simply lie on your stomach or back and then a padded belt is put around your waist. We’ll set the machine to focus on your problem area – then the advanced computer system will gently stretch and decompress your spinal structures. Most patients feel better within just a few treatments and best of all, there will be no dangerous drugs or invasive procedures as part of your treatment plan.

Our Spinal Decompression Disc Recovery Program has a high success rate with helping disc herniations, sciatica and back pain. In just a matter of weeks you could be back to your normal activities without feeling restricted by pain.

WHAT SYSTEM IS USED FOR THIS PURPOSE?

Olivieri Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Center uses the Triton DTS system manufactured by the Chattanooga Group, the premier manufacturer of physical medicine equipment. Our system has the brand new 2006 computerized head which is the most technologically advanced unit in the world. No office - and we do mean NO OFFICE - has a more "State of the Art" Spinal Decompression system.

In fact, the new 2006 Triton head is so revolutionary that it won the 2006 Australian Design Award in the "Medical and Scientific" category. It is also the system that the University of Texas purchased for the treatment of its world-class athletes.

The Triton DTS system is capable of treating discs in both the neck and in the lower back.

HOW IS SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY DIFFERENT FROM REGULAR TRACTION?

The award winning Triton computer is the key. It controls the variations in the traction pull allowing for spinal decompression and eliminating muscle guarding that is typical in conventional traction devices. The preprogrammed patterns for ramping up and down the amount of axial distraction allows for higher levels of spinal decompression and disc rehydration.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY?

Anyone who has back pain or neck pain caused by an injured disc or joints may be helped by spinal decompression therapy. These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, degenerated discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or radiculopathy (pinched nerves).

ARE THERE MEDICAL STUDIES THAT DOCUMENT THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY?

Yes! One study documented by MRI showed up to a 90% reduction of disc herniations in 10 of 14 cases. Other studies reported that the majority of ruptured disc patients achieved "good" to "excellent" results after spinal decompression therapy.

ARE THERE CONDITIONS WHERE SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY IS NOT INDICATED?

Spinal decompression therapy is not recommended for pregnant women, patients who have severe osteoporosis, severe obesity or severe nerve damage.

Spinal surgery with instrumentation (screws, metal plates or "cages") is also contraindicated. However, Spinal Decompression therapy after bone fusion or non-fusion surgery can be performed.

ARE THE SESSIONS PAINFUL? HOW MANY ARE NEEDED?

In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the Spinal Decompression session. The specific treatment plan will be determined by the doctor after your examination. Based on current research and our clinical experience, the best results are achieved utilizing 20-24 sessions over a 6-week period.

Other treatment protocols such as therapeutic exercise and chiropractic care can be combined to further enhance your results.

DO MOST PATIENTS RECEIVE THERAPY AND REHABILITATIVE EXERCISES IN ADDITION TO SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY?

Yes, most patients do combine chiropractic care and rehabilitative exercises with Spinal Decompression to enhance its longer lasting effects. Our comprehensive plan includes all of these treatments to address all the components of healing. Spinal manipulative therapy restores joints to their normal movement patterns. Rehabilitative exercises strengthen all of the spinal muscles and their supporting structures. Spinal decompression addresses the injured discs and joints.
