Cervical and lumbar traction stretcher

Our Triton DTS vertical traction system is a state-of-the-art equipment composed of a table designed exclusively to treat the spine. A cervical and lumbar traction adapter with rollers and a biofeedback attachment is used.

How is the lumbar and cervical traction stretcher treatment applied?

At Clínica Sohail we have the latest generation equipment, the TRITON DTS of CHATTANOOGA for computerized traction, both at cervical and lumbar level, which has been a breakthrough in the treatment of herniated discs.

The cervical and lumbar traction tries to perform a tension at the lumbar and cervical level that after this traction exerted on the cervical allows decompressing the intervertebral space by controlled distraction.

The cervical and lumbar traction is programmed for intelligent traction, which “tricks” the deep musculature into relaxing for highly effective and safe traction. For this we have pre-established programs and also a feed-back system with surface electrodes, which in case of muscular “defense”, decreases the range of decompressive traction of the herniated disc and eliminates all possible adverse effects.

What are the benefits of the lumbar and cervical traction stretcher?

  • Opening of the disc-vertebral space.
  • Increase in the size of the conjunctival foramen.
  • Decompression of the intervertebral joints.
  • Stretching of a retracted or painful capsule.
  • Release of nerve root adhesions.
  • Depression in the central area of the disc that tends to reduce the disc herniation and re-center it in the disc.
  • Tensioning of the posterior common vertebral ligament, which reduces disc herniation.
  • Relaxes muscle spasm.
  • The benefits are great and with the highest level of equipment and correct use of the technique, it is a great tool in the treatment of herniated discs.

When is it not recommended to apply a treatment on the lumbar and cervical traction table?

  • Respiratory distress
  • Elderly sick people
  • Sciatica with deformity
  • Long-standing radicular discomfort
  • Displacement of the cartilaginous fragment of the disk annulus
  • Lumbago with acute pain
