What is Intersegmental Traction?
It is a perfect way of inducing passive motion into the spine which will stretch your spinal joints.
How does it work?
While the patient lies face up on the table, the rollers installed into a table slowly and gently travel along your spine, stretching every spinal joint you have. Not only does it strech, but it also improves circulation of spinal fluids.
How does it feel?
It leaves you restful and helps your spine exercise without any effort! It is very relaxing treatment that is almost like getting a massage.
Why is it used?
Some disks may have poor blood supply, since all the nutrients are recieved from the circulation of fluids that surround spinal joints. Fixations unfortunately prevent this natural circulation which causes the disks to thin out and degenerate. This wonderful treatment helps to restore the elasticity and motion back to your spine!
