At Chiropractic and Rehabilitation of Miami Lakes we offer Mechanical traction, also known as intersegmental traction. While misaligned or stuck joints in the spine can limit your movement and lead to pain, the traction table helps by gently mobilizing the stuck or fixated spinal joints. It mobilizes the spinal column positively affecting not only the vertebrae, but also the discs, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. The patient lies face-up on the table, while the rollers gently move up and down the spine. Not only is it painless, but it’s also actually soothing and feels great!
Athletes are not the only ones who can benefit from using an intersegmental traction tables regularly. Those who are regularly active or suffer from a back injury can also use this tool to strengthen and restore the range of motion in the spine.
What are the benefits of mechanical traction?
- Accelerates recovery from injury.
- Assists in restoring the normal range of motion in the spine
- Helps reduce muscle spasms that can be caused by weakened postural muscles or spinal injuries.
- Helps increase blood flow to your discs, ligaments, and muscles, which can improve balance and strength.
- Mechanical traction can be adjusted to accommodate a patient’s comfort and can be safely used with all body types, including children.
Does Mechanical traction help recovery for disc injuries?
Mechanical traction offers many benefits to the spine. But it especially alleviates nerve compression caused by disc herniation and disc bulges in the spine. Not to be confused with spinal decompression in which the cervical or lumbar spine is distracted while it stretches the spine. Intersegmental traction has a roller in the center of the table that revolves in a circular motion to create movement in the vertebral joints and discs. This repetitive motion in the spine helps to bring the natural motion into the joint while also distracted each of the vertebral disc and vertebrae one at a time.
