Intersegmental traction is a relaxing therapy for patients. There is no pain involved, and patients will find that they feel at ease as the rollers travel slowly along the table. At its core, this therapy is the process by which the spine is exercised, but the patient does not have to exert themselves in any way. This therapy is used for patients who may be experiencing fluid loss in the spinal discs. The traction helps promote the increase of fluid while also allowing the spine to restore its natural elasticity.
Patients will find that there is a variety of benefits to this type of therapy. Some of those benefits include improved circulation of spinal fluids and improved mobility. In addition, this therapy is relaxing and comforting. It often becomes a service that patients enjoy, making it one of the few doctor’s appointments that they look forward to keep.
