Intersegmental Traction Therapy for Individuals in Clearwater, FL

Intersegmental traction is a chiropractic technique that is typically used in conjunction with spinal adjustments. This therapy is delivered using a special intersegmental traction table that massages a patient’s spine as they lay on their back on the table. Specialized rollers work their way up and down the patient’s spine to stretch and elongate the spinal joints and muscles. As a result, blood flow to discs, ligaments, and muscles increases to improve circulation and joint function. This treatment is non-invasive and relatively painless, and most patients find it to be relaxing.

Benefits of Intersegmental Traction

The most obvious benefit of intersegmental traction is that it helps patients find relief from their neck and back pain. Some of the other benefits you may experience with traction therapy include:

  • Normal range of motion in the spine
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Reduced muscle spasms
  • Accelerated recovery from back injuries, in certain cases
  • Improved balance
  • Reduced swelling in the spine
