Intersegmental Traction

Help with Posture and Mobility
Intersegmental traction is an efficient chiropractic therapy inducing passive motion in the spine to stretch spinal joints while increasing mobility. It helps gently and effectively reestablish the proper range of motion to the spine in no time.
The Equipment
This chiropractic approach uses an intersegmental traction table or roller tables, helping patients in the relaxation process. These roll up and down the spine, thoroughly massaging the disc spaces, cushioning between each vertebra to help them stay hydrated and healthy. Generally, the more stimulated your discs are, the healthier you will feel—and look.
The Benefits
The rollers in an intersegmental traction table go up and down the spine, making you feel great, healing your body, and providing other helpful benefits. We use this approach to stretch your spine’s surrounding muscles, enhancing the training of your spinal column.
Lie down and enjoy the many benefits of intersegmental traction, such as:
Improved Joint Motion
The roller table adds motion to all your spinal segments, improving overall joint movement and spinal function.
Reduces Inflammation
New spinal injuries are usually accompanied by edema and fluid buildup, leading to swelling. These roller tables can help reduce inflammation.
Enhanced Circulation
The approach increases oxygen and blood flow, crucial for healing.
Muscle Relaxation
It accelerates the recovery speed of a spinal injury by relaxing muscles and joints.
Disc Hydration
Traction helps circulate joint fluids, supplying discs nutrition while removing cellular wastes.
Passive Exercise
Intersegmental traction can restore the elasticity of your spine’s supporting muscles, similar to exercising.
Relaxation
Intersegmental traction sessions usually feel good and are fantastic for you.
