Spinal Decompression


Spinal Decompression Therapy is FDA cleared and has been clinically proven with an 86% success rate for pain associated with herniated or bulging discs...even after failed surgery.


Did you know that Tanner Chiropractic and Acupuncture is one of the ONLY clinics North of Shea to offer this treatment?  It is a non-surgical, traction therapy for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain.


One study documented by MRI up to 90% reduction of disc herniations in 10 of 14 cases! Another study reported that 86% of ruptured disc patients achieved "good" (50-89% improvement) to "excellent (90-100% improvement) results after spinal decompression therapy!


I selected this system due to its ability to treat discs in both the neck and the low back.  The Triton DTS is the only machine of its kind to offer both cervical decompression and lumbar decompression.


Specific treatment plans are be determined by the doctor after your examination. Based on current research, the best results have been achieved utilizing 15-20 sessions over a 6-week period.  Another HUGE benefit of choosing Tanner Chiropractic and Acupuncture, is our low price for the treatment.   We only charge $45, with no hidden costs!

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?


By cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it. The vacuum effect accomplishes two things. From a mechanical standpoint, disc material that has protruded or herniated outside the normal confines of the disc can be pulled back within the disc by the vacuum created within the disc. Also, the vacuum within the disc stimulates growth of blood supply, secondarily stimulating a healing response. This results in pain reduction and proper healing at the injured site.


How Is Spinal Decompression Different From Traction?


The Triton® DTS™ 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.


Cost is $45 per treatment
