Spinal Decompression for Naperville Residents

You’ve probably seen the newspaper ads that “hype” Spinal Decompression Therapy asking you to call some unknown doctor’s office in order to receive a free report in the mail. We do not believe anyone should have to do that.

Our website at will give you the complete facts about Spinal Decompression Therapy including several clinical trials that reported the treatment to be highly effective. You can also review actual case studies.

In addition, our website has answers to the following “Frequently Asked Questions” about Spinal Decompression Therapy:

  • How does the Triton DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy System work?
  • How is Spinal Decompression Therapy different from regular traction?
  • Who can benefit from this treatment?

  • Are the treatments painless and how long does each session take?
  • What is DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal Decompression

DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy is FDA cleared and has been clinically proven with a very high success rate for pain associated with herniated or bulging discs…even after failed surgery. It is a non-surgical, decompressive therapy for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain.

During this procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc in the neck or low back can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it.

What can this vacuum effect do?

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 Therapy different from regular 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.

Who can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Anyone who has back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by spinal decompression therapy.

These conditions include herniated, protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, facet syndrome, or arm or leg pain/numbness.

Are there medical studies that document the effectiveness of Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Most certainly! One study documented by MRI up to 90% reduction of disc herniations in 10 of 14 cases!

Other studies have reported that the majority of ruptured disc patients achieved “good” (50-89% improvement) to “excellent (90-100% improvement) results after spinal decompression therapy!

Are the sessions painful?

In almost all cases, the treatments are completely painless. In fact, some patients fall asleep during the spinal decompression session.

Is it right for you?

If you are suffering with a herniated disc in your neck or low back – or know someone who is – then Spinal Decompression Therapy should definitely be considered.
