Intersegmental Traction Therapy
Intersegmental Traction is used to induce motion into the spine. This therapy comes in the form of a table that you lay on. Inside of the table are three rollers that rotate and move from head to toe. The rollers gently roll up and down your spine. In addition to the incredible relaxation that you feel, this therapy is very beneficial to the health of your spine. Research shows that by putting your spine through this type of motion, you not only increase the range of motion of your spine but you pump the discs that are between the vertebrae of the spine.
Traction can help with disc problems as well!
This is very helpful in preventing disc degeneration and “slipped discs”. This traction also improves the circulation of the spinal fluid that bathes the spinal cord and gives it it’s nutrition. How would our patients describe this therapy? Let’s suffice it to say that after their first intersegmental traction treatment, most of them want to buy one for their home!
