Spinal decompression is a non-surgical comfortable traction therapy for relief from neck pain, low back pain, and arm or leg pain. Dodd Chiropractic Clinic utilizes the Triton DTS machine manufactured by Chattanooga Company, the premier manufacturer of physical therapy machines in the US.
Through spinal decompression, specific discs are isolated and placed under a negative pressure causing a vacuum effect within it. Disc material that has bulged, herniated, or protruded can be absorbed back within the disc by the vacuum created.
Spinal decompression also stimulates improved blood supply to the discs. This results in pain reduction and improved healing at the injury site.
