Intersegmental Traction Therapy is a beneficial treatment for individuals experiencing tense or tight muscles, effectively aiding in muscle relaxation and reducing spasms. Moreover, this therapy accelerates the healing process of ligaments and tendons, providing comprehensive relief and restoration.
The advantages of this therapy are numerous:
Joint Motion: Reclining comfortably on our table, the gentle rolling action of the surface stimulates movement along your spine, reinstating enhanced spinal function by promoting motion in each spinal segment.
Improved Circulation: The subtle stretching of supportive muscles and soft tissues amplifies oxygen and blood circulation, crucial for effective healing processes.
Muscle Relaxation: Alleviating muscle tension and spasms expedites recovery from spinal injuries, fostering a faster healing process.
Reduction of Swelling: Addressing edema and fluid accumulation accompanying new
injuries, the motion induced in spinal joints minimizes these protective responses, facilitating better healing.
Disc Hydration: Traction aids in the circulation of fluids surrounding each joint, vital for disc nutrition and healing, eliminating cellular waste and supplying essential nutrients.
Passive Exercise: Comparable to pre-workout stretches, intersegmental traction restores muscle elasticity, breaking down adhesions and scar tissue, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments.
Sense of Well-being: Traction not only feels pleasant but also serves as a significant complement to chiropractic care, maximizing its benefits.
