Spinal Traction requires the use of a specialized table on which gentle, low force traction or pulling is placed on the spine using specific angles and forces.
Used for back and neck injuries, this state-of-the-art treatment encourages the repositioning of disc material to decrease inflammation and reduce pressure on the nerves and spinal cord. It can be used to treat both chronic and acute conditions, and has been effective in stubborn and difficult back and neck injuries, when surgery is often the only treatment option remaining.
Conditions that can be treated include:
- Disc herniation (with and without sciatica / leg or arm pain)
- Spinal stenosis
- Post surgical back and neck pain
- Pain from Spondylolisthesis (forward displacement of a vertebra)
