Spinal Traction

What is Spinal Traction?

         Spinal traction is a non-surgical treatment that involves the gentle stretching of the spine to relieve pressure on the spinal discs, nerves, and joints. It can be performed manually or with the help of a traction device. This therapy aims to decompress the spine and reduce pain caused by herniated discs, sciatica, and other spinal conditions.

How Does Spinal Traction Work?

        During spinal traction, a patient lies on a table while a therapist applies a gentle pulling force to the spine. This force is applied in a controlled manner to stretch the spine, creating space between the vertebrae. The increased space allows the spinal discs to rehydrate and take pressure off the nerves and joints. Over time, this can help to improve spinal alignment and reduce pain.

What Are the Benefits of Spinal Traction?

        Spinal traction can provide a range of benefits for patients with spinal conditions, including:

  • Reduced pain and inflammation
  • Improved range of motion
  • Improved circulation
  • Improved flexibility and mobility
  • Improved posture
  • Reduced risk of future spinal injuries

In addition, spinal traction is a non-invasive and drug-free treatment, which means it has few side effects and can be used safely alongside other treatments.
