What is Triton DTS Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

At Triangle Spinal Decompression in Cary, NC, we utilize the Triton® DTS™ Decompression System manufactured by the Chattanooga Group, a leading producer of physical medicine technology.

Our facility boasts the latest computerized 600 Series table, representing one of the most

advanced units currently available. The Triton® System, recognized with an Australian Design Award

in the "Medical and Scientific" category, has been endorsed by the University of Texas for treating

elite athletes. We have chosen the Triton® DTS systems for their versatility in addressing both

neck and low back issues.


How is Spinal Decompression Therapy different from traditional traction?

A sophisticated, computer monitored system governs traction pull variations, facilitating spinal

decompression and eliminating typical muscle guarding associated with conventional traction

devices. Preprogrammed patterns for adjusting axial distraction enable enhanced spinal

decompression and disc rehydration.


Will I be working directly with the Doctor? Or will I be treated

by a technician?

Dr Parker Neill and Dr Abigail Swank will work directly with you during each of your Spinal

Decompression therapy treatments; performing evaluation, monitoring progress, supervising setup

and making any necessary changes to Triton® protocols.


Are there conditions where Spinal Decompression Therapy is not indicated?

Spinal decompression therapy may not be suitable for pregnant women, individuals with osteoporosis,

severe obesity, cardiac or pulmonary issues, hiatus hernia, and certain other conditions. Patients who

have undergone spinal surgery involving instrumentation such as screws, metal plates, or cages might

not be candidates, although post-fusion or non-fusion surgery cases may be considered.


Do most patients receive therapy & rehabilitative exercises in addition to Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Yes, to complement the healing process, patients often undergo passive therapies (ice/heat/muscle stimulation), chiropractic adjustments as necessary, and/or active rehabilitation to strengthen spinal musculature and reduce inflammation.


What Will I Experience During My Treatment?

Your comfort and safety are paramount. Sessions, lasting approximately 30 minutes and conducted

fully clothed, offer multiple "face up" positioning options for optimal comfort. The Triton® DTS gently administers cycles of stretch and relaxation, gradually increasing over several minutes to promote decompression, improved blood flow, nutrient exchange, and healing. Most patients find the treatments painless, with some even falling asleep during sessions.


What are My Treatment Costs?

Treatment plans, tailored to individual needs following examination, typically involve 20-24 sessions

over 4-6 weeks, costing approximately $1200. However, response to treatment varies, and some

individuals may require more sessions.


Are there medical studies that document the effectiveness of

Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Yes! Numerous studies support the efficacy of Spinal Decompression Therapy, including research demonstrating significant reduction in intradiscal pressure, successful outcomes in cases of herniated

discs, degenerated discs, or facet syndrome, and long-term relief from chronic back pain without the

need for surgery.
