Spinal Traction Therapy
Spinal traction therapy is the application of a pulling force on the body in order to treat musculo-skeletal disorders. The pulling form helps to relieve pressure on the spinal disks and warm the meridians. This warmth helps to restore proper flow of qi in the affected area.
When the qi is flowing in the area it is filled with rich oxygenated blood and is able to heal. Then pain is alleviated and negative conditions begin to reverse. Check out our Chinese medicine page to read more about qi and what it is.
In the past a pulley system was needed in order to pull the spine, but today we have a large table based device that safely applies the pulling force. The patient remains in a comfortable supine position throughout the spinal traction therapy. The treatment is both safe and effective.
Spinal Traction Therapy helps to manage pain, improve flexibility and mobility, provide muscular re-education and sports performance enhancement, promote neuromuscular balance and coordination, relieve pressure on nerves, alleviate muscle spasm, treat osteoarthritis, and help prevent or reduce skeletal deformities or muscle contractures.
