Intersegmental traction is an effective nonsurgical therapy that can relieve neck and back pain, reduce muscle spasms, and increase mobility and balance by stretching spinal joints and realigning the spine.
The therapy involves using an intersegmental traction table, or a roller table. As the patient lies down on the table, the rollers beneath the surface gently move up and down the spine. Intersegmental traction pulls the vertebra away from the disc, decompressing the nerve and releasing the pressure on the disc, thereby relieving pain and improving mobility.
Conditions that can be treated by Intersegmental Traction:
- Pinched Nerves
- Muscle Spasms
- Herniated Discs
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Ankylosing Spondylitis
Benefits of Intersegmental Traction:
- Stretches muscles and ligaments, increasing mobility and balance
- Reduces muscle spasms and spinal subluxations, relieving pain
- Increases blood flow and oxygen to discs, ligaments and muscles, improving balance, strength and mobility
