Traction is a non-invasive pain management technique, which helps to relieve the pain by stretching and realigning the spine. By providing a distraction on the spine the vertebrae separates and releases the nerve from the compression or pressure and stress on the vertebral discs. It can be performed either manually or mechanically.
Spinal Traction is used to treat conditions like:
- Herniated disc
- Degenerative disc disease
- Pinched nerve or nerve impingement syndrome
- Facet joint syndrome
- Spinal Stenosis
- Post surgical conditions
