INTERSEGMENTAL TRACTION

Intersegmental Traction is a way of inducing passive motion into the spine for the purpose of stretching spinal joints and increasing spinal mobility. Since discs have a poor blood supply, they get nutrients from the circulation of fluids surrounding the spinal joints. Joint fixations prevent this natural circulation and can lead to disc thinning and degeneration. Intersegmental Traction helps reduce these joint fixations and restores elasticity and motion to the spine.

The patient lies face up on a special table which has rollers beneath its surface. These rollers slowly travel up and down the spine, stretching spinal joints. Most patients find this gentle rolling action to be relaxing, while loosening the spine.
