Traction, Spinal Decompression
Used for bulging cervical discs to create a degree of soft tissue tension and/or to allow for separation between joint surfaces.
Lumbar Mechanical Traction, Spinal Decompression
Treats herniated, bulging, and degenerative discs without surgery. State of the art technology gradually relieves neurocompression often associated with lower back pain. This process has been proven to relieve pain by enlarging disc space, reducing herniation and strengthening outer ligaments. It helps move herniated areas back into place, reversing high intradiscal pressures through application of negative pressure.
Intersegmental Traction, Spinal Decompression
Induces passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing mobility. Since discs have a poor blood supply, they get nutrients from the circulation of fluids surrounding spinal joints. Fixations prevent this natural circulation and can cause thinning and degeneration. Intersegmental traction helps increase and restore necessary elasticity and motion to the spine.
