Spinal traction is a form of decompression therapy that relieves pressure on the spine. It can be performed manually or mechanically.
Spinal traction is used to treat herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, and many other back conditions.
Patients with spinal conditions benefit from this therapy because the traction reverses the force of gravity. It is most commonly used to treat slipped discs, bone spurs, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, facet disease, sciatica, foraminal stenosis, and pinched nerves.
Spinal traction is a non-surgical way to relieve pain and correct problems in the spine. While it does have some potential side effects, spinal traction offers consistent relief for most patients.
