Intersegmental traction is an effective chiropractic technique that utilizes passive motion to stretch the spine and increase mobility. This non-invasive therapy option helps relieve back pain and disc problems to get you back to living your life without debilitating pain.
How Does It Work?
The intersegmental traction table stretches the muscles and ligaments while mobilizing the spine. This specialized table operates through the use of a dual roller that moves up and down the muscles around the spine. This relaxing, healing movement increases blood flow and oxygen all throughout the muscles, discs, and ligaments, and improves the body’s balance, mobility, and strength.
Intersegmental traction is typically a painless and non-invasive method of treating spinal conditions. The rollers move across the spinal column hundreds of times, massaging out any painful points or areas of tension.
What Conditions Can Intersegmental Traction Help Treat?
If your mobility and posture are compromised, your muscles can become weak and stiff. Over time, these muscular and ligament problems can cause spinal misalignments and further issues. Intersegmental traction can help correct the spine and relieve tension and tightness throughout the body.
This treatment is effective for all kinds of painful conditions, including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Herniated disc
- Slipped disc
- Car accident injury
