What Is Intersegmental Traction Therapy?
Intersegmental traction therapy is a procedure used by chiropractors to treat back pain, disc problems, and reduce muscle spasms. This type of therapy helps the healing process in your body and does not involve drugs or surgery. It also helps provide relief from pain quickly and effectively to allow our patients to resume a normal life. If you suffer from pain in the back or spinal region and live in the Santa Barbara area, visit Advanced Chiropractic Group for pain relief.
How Does Intersegmental Traction Therapy Work?
Intersegmental traction therapy uses a specially designed table where the patient lies down and rollers rise gently lifting the body. The rollers move up and down the patient’s spine opening up the facet joints. The intersegmental traction table can be used to increase the patient's blood flow throughout the spinal column to the discs, ligaments, and muscles. The amount of pressure that is applied to the patient can be adjusted as needed by the chiropractor.
What Can It Treat?
The procedure moves the patient’s discs to motivate the healing process by allowing vital nutrients to circulate through the injured area. The stretching of the muscles also provides relief from muscle spasms. Intersegmental traction therapy can improve the stability of the back and most patients find the experience quite relaxing.
