Intersegmental traction is one of the many services we use on a daily basis to help our patients see great results! 

What exactly is intersegmental traction? When a patient lies down on an intersegmental traction table, their spine is stretched, providing space between individual vertebrae. As vertebrae stretch out, spinal fluid is able to pump into the space where spinal discs lie, providing relief. The overall goal of intersegmental traction is to improve mobility, reduce disc bulges, and disc herniations. This method works well to take pressure off the lumbar spine, while also being very safe and gentle.

How Intersegmental Traction can help you

  • Improve overall mobility 
  • Increase range of motion 
  • Reduce muscle tension 
  • Increase blood flow and oxygen to discs, ligaments, and muscles 
  • Reduce spinal misalignment 
  • Improve balance and coordination
