Spinal Decompression Therapy - SDT
SDT is a newly developed procedure for back and neck pain sufferers. It is a comfortable, effective, affordable treatment for many patients and a safer alternative to invasive surgery.
Using the state-of-the-art Triton Spinal Decompression Table, designed by a team of top physicians and medical design engineers to create the unique spinal treatment table. SDT was developed specifically to treat neck/lumbar back pain and sciatica resulting from degenerated and herniated discs.
How Does SDT Work?
SDT is a relatively new non-surgical tecnology that can successfully treat lumbar, leg, arm and neck pain emanating from spinal degeneration, spinal plate herniation and relevant joint disorders.
SDT works by gently stretching, lengthening, decompressing and re-positioning the spine. This reversal of pressure creates an intradiscal vacuum that helps to reposition bulging discs and pull extruded disc materials back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves. This technique relieves pressure off the spinal discs, which are gel-like cushions between the bones of the spine, by creating a negative pressure in the disc space. By doing so, herniated or bulging discs may retract, therefore relieving pressure off nerve and other structures in the spine. Spinal experts maintain that oxygen, nutrients and fluids are also drawn into the disc to create a revitalised environment conducive to healing.
GP referral to active AGAIN is not needed for non-surgical treatment. We do urge and recommend that you share results with your GP or specialist.
Each treatment session of SDT lasts between 20 and 30 minutes. Chronic pain sufferers can have 3-5 sessions per week for multiple weeks while pain reduction continues. The process is very comfortable, it is not uncommon to find patients asleep during treatment. There may be some minor discomfort standing up following treatment, similar to when first getting out of from bed in the morning. Some patients bring their own iPod, or listen to and enjoy the choice of music at the clinic.
The Triton Spinal Decompression Table is FDA and TGA approved technology for the treatment of chronic and acute pain.
