Intersegmental traction therapy is a non-invasive and effective treatment for patients suffering from back pain and disc problems. The traction table gently helps reestablish the normal ranges of the body’s spine. The modality table also helps facilitate muscle relaxation and reduce muscle spasms. It has been shown that use of an intersegmental traction table greatly accelerates recovery progress from a thoracic or low back injury.
The intersegmental table operates by a dual roller moving up and down the muscles on either side of the spine. This therapy mobilizes the spinal column while simultaneously stretching the ligaments and muscles. This helps to increase blood flow and oxygen to discs, ligaments and muscles, thereby improving balance, strength and mobility. The rolling contact is constant and works electronically. Intersegmental traction tables are very relaxing and make for a great healing tool.
