Mechanical traction can be used for both the neck (cervical spine) and low back (lumbar spine) to treat various types of spinal conditions, such degenerative changes in the spine, stenosis, and herniated disc. Traction utilizes decompression forces to unload pressure onto the targeted region of the spine helping to restore underlying conditions.
Traction is the using of forces to stretch muscles, ligaments and other soft tissues thereby decompressing the spine to increase the space between vertebrae. Typically, this procedure is essential for pinched or compressed nerves and compressed to joints, muscles, ligaments, and vertebrae.
Mechanical traction allows for continuous or intermittent stretching on a traction table. The traction table uses computerized systems to apply exactly desired amounts and/or variations of pressure. By alleviating the constant pressure that soft tissues and spinal skeleton endure, pain decreases, resulting in improving activity of daily living.
